It's very strange. Today i went to one of my user's computer and we can't install anything. When trying to install one of our reseller software it just sits there and hangs, no CPU cycles being used, no memory being used. I tried to do a windows update and it will download 100% then when it's supposed to install the downloaded components, it just hangs. I left it there for about 5 mins and nothing happened, no progress on the progress bar. I ran Ad-Aware to check to see if there .... read more

Tried to get support from MS. Product id required. Message says Windows cannot find helpctr.exe that should lead me to product id.
Any suggestions?

Where to begin? While attempting to repair an unbootable WinXP installation,I scanned the ailing drive with 'CHDSK d: /p' via the recovery console andthe scan stopped in the first stage at ~19%, claiming an unrecoverable errorwas encountered. An earlier scan after the boot failure of this same drive(without surface scan or automatic error correction) via Win2K didn't reportany errors, so hoping it was a fluke I rebooted my computer to find that theXP drive disappeared from everywhere.... read more

Hello. For months now, if I let my computer stay on without any activity (surfing net, using programs, playing games, etc.) for 45 minutes a serious error occurs which stops Windows XP.

I installed the recent windows update rollup security package laast Saturday. It made the keyboard driver inoperable, so I couldn't even hit control-alt-delete to log in, to uninstall the patches. I emailed MS support of windows update from another computer, and they basically told me to go pound sand, my Operating system is obsolete.
I started the emaergency repair process, and when reached about 94% of copying the files, it claimed six files where missing. it put up a message of the s.... read more

Hello Everybody,I have WinXP SP2.
Every folder with images in it in WinXP seems to create a hidden file Thumbs.db which, as it is obvious from the name, stores information about the thumbnails of the images. Is there any API call in WinXP which could quickly determine if the folder contains a Thumbs.db file? I do not want to go through every file to check if its name is Thumbs.db. By the way, I am still using good old VB6 for my programming pleasure.
Thank you,

I recently bought a program which uses Microsoft Access 200 Runtime. When I open the program, I get an error message (in the vendors words) that the program tried to run a macro or use the DoCmd object in Visual Basic to carry out an action. The application is stopped and closed due to a run-time error.
The vendor told me I had to remove Microsoft Access from XP Pro. But I did not install Access!!! He said that the Access database code is in XP and has to be removed in order for his program .... read more

Hi Erika, by any chance have you recently added/changed your network or TCP/IP settings? When you do so, files for the appropriate services are re-loaded from the original NT4 install CD - unfortunately, versions that are not completely compatible with later system files added by the service packs/ hotfixes. The solution however is simple, re-apply your latest service pack. (presumably SP6a) See Microsoft knowledgebase article 151427 for further details.
Calvin.

How do I clear my search menu in Windows XP? When I perform a search in Windows XP, it seems to remember what I searched for...! So even if I type a single letter 'm' for example, a list of everything I've searched for starting with 'm' appears in a drop down menu. How do i clear this menu? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thx!

I have encountered an issue with my NT server PDC and several workstations not authenticating and not being granted access to the domain. I hve followed the advice on several posts in this topic but have hit a bit of a wall. I do not have the original Resource Kit (I am a Windows Admin taking over where the previous admin left no documentation nor had all of the servers updated ). It would appear Netdom.EXE would allow me to remedy my situation but I am unable to find it on any microsoft or oth.... read more
