Hi. I'm getting a strange error message when I try to download programs off the Net. I usually save the programs to my hard drive first, so that I can scan them with my anti-virus program before I install them.

But tonight when I was trying to download Azureus, this is the error message I got:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Michelle\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\UHW7Y9SI\jre-1_5_0_04-windows-i586-p.exe[1].torrent --- Invalid menu handle."

Does anyone know what this means? I'd really appreciate any help!

Okay so Ive had my toshiba satelite A305-s6858 for about 7 months now.. but only a month ago ive started actually using internet on it. It was working totally fine, but now everything I want to open or everytime i want to open a program or file an error message comes up saying," this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the set associations file." It shows up for every thing i try opening.Im not very good with computers I mean knowledge wise so i have no idea what this is and what to do about it. Also a few days ago I noticed a mysterious account that just decided to show up on my login screen. I thought one of my family members made it but then i asked and they all said it wasnt theirs. It was a limited account. I deleted it. I wonder if it has anything to do with my issue. Please help me and respond asap. Thank you very very much.

Hi, 

I've recently upgraded my windows 7 to windows 10 enterprise. I have onedrive account with files synced to cloud, before upgrading i've backed up onedrive files locally in my computer. Some of those files can't be opened after upgrade, formats include
.docx and .xlsx and .png. Most of these files were in direct onedrive main/root folder rather than in subfolders. As i can see those images in subfolders can be opened but not doc and excel files.

How can i view those files again, why have they become corrupt, what could I do in future to prevent these problems

Hello,

I'm trying to setup an email for a coworker and we're having trouble. Sending and receiving seem to work OK but then when we try to open emails by double-clicking on them, we get an error message along the lines of "Can't open the email. Contents can't be accessed. Need to open email online." (this isn't verbatim; I don't have the error message in front of me at the moment).

He's using Outlook 2002. The mail service is with Telus (Calgary, Alberta). The incoming mail server is imap.telus.net (I read somewhere that IMAP mail servers can have problems like this).

Logging onto the server online can be done, and works, but he'd much rather use Outlook as the online webmail is a "pain in the ***" (his words).

Can anybody help please?
 

A:error message when opening emails

Hi gib88,

From within Outlook click on the Tools menu > choose Send/Receive > Send/Receive Settings, and then Define Send/Receive Groups.
Choose the Edit button.
Click on your IMAP account in the left pane, and then under the Receive Mail Items section choose “Download complete items including attachments”.
You can alternately choose - Use custom behavior defined below - and choose only your Inbox - or the exact folders you want to download the full items to.

If you have a large amount of items in your Inbox - you may want to create sub folders - and customize Outlook to download specific folders.
That may save you from getting file corruption - and / or making Outlook slow to open.

Hope that works for you.

This has started happening the last couple weeks. When I click on my email I get this:
Account: 'pop.gmail.com', Server: '127.0.0.1', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR AVG POP3 Proxy Server: Cannot connect to the mail server!', Port: 5100, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90
Now this doesn't always happen, sometimes it connects, and opens right up. Then I can send, recieve and log off. Then maybe a couple hours later I click on and get this same message, I 'X' the message off and click on the send recieve button. Then I either get the same error message, or it may decide to open up, and then I get my mail. Or I may get the error 3 times before I finally get thru. This just started 2 weeks ago, and being this fickle is starting to annoy me. It's a two year old HP with 2 G of RAM and Vista. I can still go to Google online and go right to my email with no problem. Anybody else getting this?

I'm guessing that it is a hidden file because when I went to Crogram Files\Juice there was no exe.log

How do I get to that file?

Re-installing the application may fix this problem." when attempting to open anything. In the blue bar top area of the error message it states "rundll32exe(or whatever i'm trying to open) - Unable To Locate Component." Now if I click OK on that box, most of the time the application will open successfuly. But when I restart the computer I may receive a total of 15 error messages before the desktop even loads. It seems that the computer is looking for this netfxy.dll file(which I guess doesn't exist) every single time it tries to run something. Help!

After lots of problem I have just had my Windows7 professionally reinstalled and am now in the process of installing my software. The Microsoft Office software is Ms Office with Frontpage. My list of programs confirms that this is the installed program and Frontpage can indeed be opened. When I try to open Excel, Word, Powerpoint etc I get a message that says"the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the 'MS Office XP Professional with FrontPage' disk and click OK". When I do this nothing happens. I then click "Cancel" and Excel opens OK.

Hi, I am running Windows XP Home Edition V2002 SP3 on an ASUS Eee PC.

When I go into Windows Explorer I get a message "A program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for internet explorer. Internet Explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider Google (www.google.com). Internet Explorer will now open search settings where you can change this setting or install more search providers".

Search settings screen opens, and confirms Google as the default search provider so I don't change anything here, just take the clause open and it continues into Explorer login. However EVERY time I go into Explorer I get the above sequence of messages/actions, so the re-setting is not taking effect permanently.

Can anyone advise how to overcome this please?

Not sure if this is the correct forum or not, but when I try to open some .jpeg files, I sometimes (key word "sometimes") get the following error message:

I have to click on the "OK" approx. 10 consecutive times before the error message goes away and then seems nothing is affected.

here your profile is limited on the normal user privileges.. meaning u cannot install softwares that adds new values to the registry. u need the administrator to add ur account under the security tab of each of the files, regedit.exe and regedt32.exe .. otherwize, see if u can get the local administrator password, login and install the program ..

or maybe a policy, .. start > run > type gpedit.msc and press enter.

Hi Guys,

This pop-up window started to appear when pressing the button 'New FAX'. Second line goes on to say: Specified procedure could not be found.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of where to even start to look at where or why this problem is suddenly occurring? This seems to have started after a critical update but I can't be certain. I couldn't roll back to an earlier restore point as it only saves the last two or three (on every boot-up?) so there wasn't one earlier enough to try.

Thanks.

A:Opening A Downloaded Program Get A Error Message

Hello and to BC

First and foremost about this, have you scanned your computer for Any sort of malware before / after doing this download as it may be infected, Just a thought

Secondly, what type of program are you trying to download, if its a simple program such as an AV , or a free game or something like that, from a trusted site, it should not be giving you an error such as that

if its an older exe file maybe it just won't work with your xp, Just a couple of thoughts to toss out there
Hope to hear from you soon

Hi Guys,

Moved the thread from Networking as I got no answers... perhaps this will yield better results! This pop-up window (Thread Title) started to appear when pressing the button 'New FAX'. Second line goes on to say: Specified procedure could not be found.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of where to even start to look at where or why this problem is suddenly occurring? This seems to have started after a critical update but I can't be certain. I couldn't roll back to an earlier restore point as it only saves the last two or three (on every boot-up?) so there wasn't one earlier enough to try.

Thanks.

I am running windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Whenever I try open outlook or anything in office 2003 I receive the following error message: please wait while windows configures microsoft office single image 2003.

The above error message is an identical message sent to this Forum by "drumstik59" but was for Office 2010 instead of Office 2003.

This was solved by the reply given by "Irene" which is :-

"..paste the following commands one at a time and press ENTER.

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0 \Access\Options /vNoReReg/tREG_DWORD/d 1 "

As I have the same error message with MS Office 2003 but have "\11.0\" in the script instead of "\14.0\" would this solution also apply to Office 2003 ?

Well, version 11.0 applies to Microsoft Office 2003, so it's certainly worth a try.

I'm trying to set up a second email profile on a PC which already has a profile set up. The new profile needs to be password protected, ie. anyone who logs on to the PC using the default profile should not have access to the second mail profile without an additional password (if that makes sense).
Both profiles use exchange accounts. I've selected the 'Prompt for a profile to be used' option. However when I select the second profile I get the following error message:

Unable to open your default e-mail folders. You do not have permission to log on.

I'm assuming that this is because it is trying to use the Windows logon username and password to access the second profile. Is there any way to get Outlook to prompt for a password when accessing the new mail profile?

A:Solved: Excel 2003 - error message when opening file

Check the file extension. Am sure it has an extension ".xlsx" which means that the file was created using microsoft office 2007 excel or higher. This is why your computer does not recognize the extension of the file. the 2003 version of excel can only open files with the extension ".xls". The solution to this is to get microsoft office 2007 or higher version and install it or got the following link and download Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack and install it. it will enable you to open the file without having to install the office 2007 which may not be fit for your machine specifications.

Hello,

As mentioned in the title, I've recently encountered problems while opening the folder in which I download files to. What's different from what I've experienced in the past, is that this error doesn't pop up for any other drive/folder but this specific part of the directory. So I'm wondering is it possible to cut the files to a new folder and delete/avoid this folder? Or are my problems greater than something as simple as this?

Background info:
While attempting to upgrade the expansion for WoW: Burning Crusade, I wasn't able to more or less for the fact that my original drive that came with the computer (dell 2001) is starting to fall apart. ie. corrupt file packets I believe it was. This folder is in the same hard drive, so it just possible that the hard drive is going to randomly do this until it completely malfunctions? Or have I downloaded malware of some sort that was never detected? I've run ad-aware, S&D, Anti-Trojan, Symantec AV multiples times making sure to do updates before each scan, but nothing has come up.

If you could please give me some ideas as to how to fix this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Hello, I've been struggling for half a year with this. It gives me the error when I try to run games like Shadow of Mordor, Hitman Absolution or GTA5. I have tried updating and installing the visual studio and other software with aio, even manually replacing the dlls (xinput and mfc100 ones). Still no progress. I arrived at this error after the game was asking me for a list of other dlls that I manually downloaded (picture)

Dependency gave me a diagnosis of the dll problem, I think, but I don't know what to do next. I appreciate any help :)

A:Error opening files

You are missing quite a lot of .dll files from this game, not from Windows.
I would uninstall the game, restart your computer and reinstall it.
If you feel that you are missing Windows .dll's. Go to Start/Search and type CMD, Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing system files.

Hey all,

I am a Helpdesk technician at my company and we have had multiple users report that they get an error when attempting to open ZIP files. These files are on our network file server. The error message received is "Windows cannot open the folder.
The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid". We have installed 7-zip on a couple of the users PC's for a temporary fix, but there are over 150 users in our network and that is alot of time to go to each PC and install that. So far we have heard
from about 15 that are having this issue. We are running Windows 7 64 bit. I have searched all over the web for a fix, and have come up with nothing. This issue appears to have started about a month ago....around 9/15/2015....maybe a microsoft update? 
For now we are implementing 7-zip until we can get a Microsoft fix. Any ideas or fixes would be great! Thanks in advance.

We have noticed that if the user restarts their PC that the problem goes away for a spell, but returns unprompted. We are using Dell machines and HP Thin Clients...It is happening on both. We have checked the error logs and nothing egregious shows up.

create a new folder in your documents folder - called DesktopXP (can be named anything you like
Copy all of the files on your desktop that you restored to the new folder DesktopXP
See if they will open
What kind of file are they - are they real files or are they shortcuts?

I tried opening a program from C:\Program Files then this error popped up.



Maybe my registry cleaner has caused the problem http://www.regsofts.com/free_registry_repair/registry_repair.htm

A:Error when opening C:\Program Files

Do you have Google Toolbar or Yahoo! Toolbar installed?

EDIT: Also, for a temporary fix, don't view in Thumbnail or Slideshow view. It postpones it sometimes, but not always.

I've found that some people solved the problem by uninstalling seemingly random programs. I've found the most common issue is having 3rd party add-ons enabled in Internet Explorer, which is odd that it would affect Explorer.

Verify the spelling.

If you are certain it is correct post a HijackThis scanlog as you may have indications of infection.

Have you run any virus scans recently that have done any cleaning?

Download and install HijackThis. Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

I have just discovered a strange error when opening .chm files.

If I start the .chm file from explorer I get a number of Script Errors


OR



If I step through all errors all iconsimages are not displayed!


If I step through all of the error dialogs, pressing Esc, and click Refresh, stepping through all errors again, and then click Refresh the .chm file is displayed correctly


BUT here comes the strangest thing!
If I create a small program that opens the .chm file using ShellExecute or System.Diagnostics.Process then it works perfectly direct!!??

I have uninstalled HTML Workshop SDK and re-installed. Version 1.3
I have used the Default File Type Association .reg file found here
Default File Type Associations - Restore

I'm running Windows 7 SP1 32-bit Ultimate

The .chm file used for the screen dumps was created with Sandcastle Help File Builder 2014-11-22.0, but I get the same result with any .chm file...

Hi to all, my request is every time on of my users at work clicks on any word, excel, powerpoint or outlook files he gets an error which reads like this "There are no Office Assistant character files present on the system. Please run setup in maintenance mode and install at least one character".

After he clicks "OK" the files come up with no problems. We are using Office 2003. The user is the V.P. or the company and I am supposed to respond to this by tomorrow.

Good Morning

Recently we replaced one of our users machines with a brand new IBM Lenovo desktop. They are running Windows XP 32 bit SP3. Previously this user used Print Shop 6.0 to create fliers, anouncements, newsletters and the like for our company. Upon installing Print Shop on the new machine the program wouldn't load at all. I was finally able to get the program to start by giving the local user modify rights to folders C:\The Print Shop Products, C:\Program Files\Paint Shop Pro and giving full permissions to registry entry HKLM\Software\Broderbund Software.

The program seems to be working normally as long as the user is creating brand new projects. The problem is that she can't open the majority of projects she created before she received the new computer. Due to circumstances I won't get into, the user must use this particular program and this particular machine. Getting a newer version of Print Shop is, unfortunately, not an option. Switching to a different program is also not an option.

If anyone has run into the problem before any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

First of all, when I try to open a file or folder in my computer, it comes up with the message :
'C:\Documents and Settings\my file' is not assesible. Access denied'

This same problem happens when i either edit or copy a picture/music/document file. It comes up with the message:

'"Cannot copy filename: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

My disk is not full as I have 80GB of hard disk memory left.

I'm getting a new file issue these days when I open Word docs:
"There is a problem saving the file.
Usually this is because the disk or floppy disk is too small for the file or is full, RAM memory is low, or there is a permission problem with the drive the file is being saved to.
If the amount of disk space for a paging file is low, save the file to another drive. If the RAM memory is low, increase available RAM. If permissions to the drive do not allow you to save to that drive, save the file to another drive or request permissions from the administrator to save files to the drive.
Note: This error can also occur if the computer is running a version of antivirus software that is not compatible with the Microsoft Office system or needs to be updated."
I use AVG.

Hi,

I'm having an issue with Windows XP, SP2...for the last month or so, whenever I try to open a picture file on my PC (.jpg, .bmp, etc.) I get the message "Windows cannot find (location of file/filename). Make sure you typed the name correctly, then try it again."

then I get a box which says "SmartHeap Library MEM_BAD_POINTER"

After which the PC freezes up and I have no choice but to reboot.

Occasionally I can get the file/files to open if I right click on the thumbnail/icon and open it in Corel PP or something, but if I left click on the file to open it right then and there, forget it. Crash.

These files DO exist on my PC, because the thumbnails show up when I open the folder, and I can copy them to my SD card, and so on. But strangely enough even when I copy new pics to the pc (onto my desktop) I am also having the same problem.

It doesn't seem to matter whether I set Windows Imaging/Picture Viewer or corel photo paint (or any other prog for that matter) as the default picture viewing program. If I left click on the file to open it I get the message I mentioned earlier.

I tried cleaning out the system caches, but it didn't help. Still having the problem. The file/files are there, I can see them in the folder, or on the desktop, view their properties and all, but no matter what program I try to open them with I still get the same message/freezeup...

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem before and/or if anyone has a fix for it? When ever I try and open some JPEGs from email in Outlook 2010 if comes up with this...

The file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer:

Microsoft Outlook image previewer

To open this file in its own program, double click it.

.... I try and open up the file in Windows Photo Viewer and it says;

Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't support this file format, or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Viewer.

.... This only happens with some pictures, others are fine, and they're the same format, JPEG. I've tried sending a sample through from hotmail to Outlook and these seem to work fine, its just from other sources that it seems to be temperamental.

I've done a system restore and uninstalled any programs I think maybe conflicting with it, although there wasn't anything that stood out. This problem wasn't there before, it must of appeared within the last couple of weeks but unsure of exact date as some pictures open and some don't.

There doesn't seem to be any updates for the photo viewer or Outlook!?

Any ideas much appreciated?

A:Error Message With Avi Video Files

Hi cybersupam.whenever I single or double click on any AVI video file an error message pops upIf you single click a file to select it (not open it) and your system errors out or crashes, it indicates a damaged shell extension. In your case, the .avi extension.Download the zipped version if ShellExView here near the bottom of the page. It has no installer.Extract the files and run "shexview.exe". The list may need a second or two to populate.Next to the extension names under the "disabled" category, they would normally all say "no".Scroll down the list to "Video Thumbnail Extractor", right click and select "Disable Selected Items".At the prompt, select "Yes", close the app and see if it now crashes. If it still does, repeat the procedure for "AVI Property Handlers" and disable it. Don't worry about changing anything permanently, just use the program to re-enable.Of course, you'll want to be booted in to XP before you do this. Let us know the results, we are not done yet.

Hey
I just recently was talked through removing some trojan virus's from my computer. (trojan.Downloader.Agent. 11Q, 12D, Startpage.19AO). I removed them with many different programs, and it seemed to work out fine. When i rebooted my computer I noticed that the start menu was missing. I then tried to open various files, but received the error message:

This application failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I read on different internet sites, that I may be missing a system file (Code 14401 I believe.... I'm not very good with system files...). Also i believe that the missing system file is messing up my explorer, as I have no file option.

If any one can help me with this problem in any way, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.
