I have a notebook with Vista Home Premium (Italian language).Network works fine but: "Connection status: Unknown The specified service does not exist as an installed service." "The specified service does not exist as an installed service."
I have a vista HP set to recive auto update .This morning it shows to update XML core service 4.0 service pack 2 (KB936181) I did the update and few second later it shows the same update I did this 3 times and restarted the computer and it is still shows to update the same thing over and over.
I have the following error message when trying to login to vista on my laptop:
The User Profile Service service failed the login.
User profile cannot be loaded.
Just before the problem happened I was working to remove the Anti Virus Live virus from my laptop via the techsupportforum.com forum.
Two things I did within the hour of the problem happening are:
1. I ran the malware removal program OTL
See step 5 at (http://tinyurl.com/pr92qn)
2. I cleared and set system restore's cash-
as instructed in post#23 on my techsupportforum.com thread
(Anti Virus Live on my Laptop - Page 2 - Tech Support Forum)
Further details-I can and am able to login to Safe Mode I do not have a program called System Restore in the System Tools folder In Safe Mode I was able to change my password, but in normal mode I get the same error message I did windows updates and then tried to remove some of those updates, with only a few files that wouldn't allow me to delete them. Thank you for visiting my thread. If anyone has any ideas on how I can fix my problem it would be great to hear about them.
Also my Windows Search service does not start. When I try to start it, I get these errors in the event log:
1. "The Windows Search Service cannot open the Jet property store.
The content index server cannot update or access information because of a database error. Stop and restart the search service. If the problem persists, reset and recrawl the content index. In some cases it may be necessary to delete and recreate the content index. (0x8004117f)"
2. "The Windows Search Service has failed to created the new system catalog. Internal error <4,0x8004117f>."
I'm totally lost as how to solve this problem. I spent hours on the web trying to find a solution, with no luck sofar. Anyone here who has a clue how to solve this one?
i have a vista home premium 64-bit system i tryed to install the vsita SP1 i got this error message: "windows vista service pack 1 cannot be installed on your computer because you are using the wrong installer version for your architecture please use the 64-bit installer"
awhile back my computer,down loaded service pack 1...today update came up with a new up date..yep it was service pack 1..i checked and it said service pack 1 is installed..so now i am doing the second service pack 1...any one know whats going on if there was a second service pack.why wouldnt they name it service pack 2 i think microsoft is f$%ked up..i love those mac commericals...shameing bill gates on how bad vista is...
I recently installed vista, do the service packs download through live update? Or do I have to go online to download it? Or does it come with the vista installation? I don't know what service pack, if any, is installed on this computer.
Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ends on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ends on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support will end on July 13, 2010 as well. * There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014. What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows. Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.
How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed? Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed: 1) Click on the Start Button 2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version) 3) Click on Properties
I installed service pack 3 and it had an error message. The screen will not allow windows to boot. for three days now it says reverting changes and stays there. It won't even boot into safe mode. What do i do? how do i even get past it to save my info and reformat?
For the past few weeks I've been having an issue with an Apple made service called "Bonjour Service". That service is used in several pieces of software including iTunes (which I do not use) but also some Adobe applications (Version Cue for example) and the font management utility I use which is Extensis Suitcase 11.0.1 for Windows.
Both Version Cue and Suitcase depend on the Bonjour Service to work and I have had no issues with it for months but recently, the Bonjour Service stopped working and would not start anymore. It now gives this error message when trying to start it:
"('Bonjour Service' failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."
My user account is an admin account so privileges is not an issue. I had made no changes to my system myself before the Bonjour service began to "refuse" starting but I remember that I installed a few Windows updates a couple days prior. My machine is always on and I don't re-boot everyday.
So I was wondering if anyone has heard of the issue and knows how I might fix it or if anyone can give me pointers on how I my start trouble shooting this and find what started preventing the Bonjour Service from starting. FWIW, the Windows Firewall is already off and turning off my anti-virus doesn't help (Eset NOD32).
I have Vista Home Premium 32-bit OS. I possibly want to upgrade to Windows 7 equivalent. Here's my dilemma: I installed Service Pack 1 via Windows website download manager, and after a fashion, it appeared to have installed and it rebooted my system. It clearly shows as having been installed according to Windows Update History. [Additionally, Service Pack 2 is not offered as a download, but the rest of my query, please.] HOWEVER, according to Microsoft, when I click START > right click COMPUTER, at the top of that resulting page and beneath my version of Vista it should show "Service Pack 1."
In my case, it does not! FURTHER, I downloaded and ran Windows 7 Update Advisor, the results show I need to download and install Service Pack 1. I'm aware that I can download. or order on CD, each of the Service Packs and install, starting with Service Pack 1 before attempting to install Service Pack 2. Why does Service Pack 1 show as installed in Windows Update History, but does NOT seem to be installed according to the two other instances/sources I've mentioned above?
When installing service pack 2, I get to the "Please read the license terms". The "Next" key at the bottom is not available for selecting ... it is grayed out. All I can do from this point is select cancel. I downloaded Windows6.0-KB948465-X64.exe. I have a 64-bit computer and am running Windows Vista Home Premium Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Park 1)
I'm trying to install ASP.NET 2.0 on Windows Vista home by following instructions on this page. The last instruction on this URL is "Go to Web Service Extensions and Allow ASP.NET 2.0 " Now I've tried my best but I cannot find Web Service Extensions in Windows Vista Home? Where are these located?
I have a program that installs a service. Somehow the program stopped working and gives me a message that it can't communicate with its service. I checked in services and it's running OK. I decided to uninstall the program and re-install. However, after uninstalling the program, the service is still there and running. I would like to remove it and start from scratch. Is the only way to go in the registry and delete the appropriate key? I didn't see a way to uninstall or remove services otherwise.
In my Problem and Solutions report I keep getting this ServiceHang repot. I deleted 67 of them and it seems I get one or two a day. It does not effect the performance of my computer however it is like a bug you want to get rid of.
I was wondering if I had the correct Service Packs. Under Windows Updates I can see them all going back to when I bought it. It shows 1 service pack update, KB948465 on 9/19/09. It does not show a 2nd. Under Windows Edition in my System (Control Panel) it shows Windows Home Premium and Service Pack 2.
After using perfmon to determine what applications were hogging my internet connection at 2am every morning I found that AeLookupSvc and Appinfo were the culprits. After looking up what they did and deciding that it would be ok to disable them (!!) I did so, and now any activity that requires administrative privileges either does not respond, or returns the error "C:Windowssystem32services.msc The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. Perfmon, services.msc, windows firewall, system restore, accessing my registry, none of it works. I can still run programs and serf the net, but anything that needs admin priv will not work. I guess what I need is some kind of workaround, I need to enable Appinfo without administrator privileges so I can get my administrator privileges back. Thanks for any help you can provide, Tim **SKIP the FOLLOWING if you just want to help for said issue** Now time for the RANT: Jesus I have never been so frustrated! I have never had a prolonged experience with something so clunky, so ridiculous, and coming highly touted from one of the largest corporations on the planet! This is only one (and the worst) of the many problems I've had. While playing warcraft I'll suffer from framerate issues with a powerful dual core until the cpu's decide "hey, he's got 6 fps, lets stop whatever we were doing and help him out" and my framerates will jump to 60. I spent an hour in the registry working on my latency issues, I spent 30 minutes in the registry fixing a fallout 3 console problem, svchost will decide to go surf the net in the middle of me doing something myself and lag the crap out of me. My computer has a mind of its own and rarely is it doing something I want to do too! If windows vista wiped my a$$ it would be a 47 step process and have to stop and ask my permission to ask my permission. I went to microsoft support for help, entered in my product i.d. in order to determine if I could get support help WITHOUT having to PAY $49, and it told me the number was for vista home premium 64 bit instead of the 32 bit I selected, well, ok, I went back and changed the option to 64 bit, re-entered the SAME exact i.d., it gave me a product i.d. format error......the same, copy/pasted i.d..... I went and did it two more times both ways including opening a new browser window laughing my ass off!!! Way to go microsoft! Your $230 billion dollar organization wants $49 from me to help me with your problems! I'm so glad I was so frustrated I laughed, otherwise my laptop would have traveled through the wall. ( I know, anger issues, but can you blame me?!?!) There's some more I could write if you're still reading, but my finger's are getting cold, I haven't typed this much since my senior design project.
I recently received a response (in this forum) stating that it is possible to download Windows Vista Service Packs 1 and 2 and have them available for use by burning them to a CD. Sound great to me but I really need some detailed help on how to do this. If I should be posting this to another newsgroup, I would like to know which one.
I noticed a new service appreared in the services list. It is called BTIKIJJX, has no depencies and is strangely located under C:UsersCalabracheAppDataLocalTempBTIKIJJX.exe and the file does not exist anymore. Can I delete this service and how ?
I may have missed something but I thought that MS would be releasing it to the masses in March. I keep looking at MS Download page and running Windows Update and hile there are "tips" on downloading, I can't find the file.
The following is a consistent warning that when this event happens it causes a hang in the os. Was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a driver that can take the place of the nvidia nforce sata control driver as the issue is caused by this driver....
I'm a Vista and IE user, not a Developer. Sequence of events:
last week... downloaded Vista Service Pack 1 this week... IE8 has stopped working... screen goes white... DEP problem (blocks code execution) or DEP/NX No-Execute Memory Protection.....................
I had a working VPN connection with Windows Vista, my computer encountered an error and the resolution was to upgrade to Service Pack 1. I did and now my VPN connection does not work. I can bring a laptop home from work (Windows XP) and it will connect. Anyone have any ideas? I have gone into the properties to make sure the settings did not get changed.
I am running Vista x64 Several months ago I got a nasty trojan which removed the Security Center from my computer. I didn't think it as a big deal as I have several other anti-viruses installed, but I've come to a situation where I require windows firewall to be on. When I attempt to start windows security center, I get the error "The Security Service cannot be started" .Now according to several other hundred threads, I'm supposed to go to "Services" and change "Security Center" to automatic.The only problem is, Security Center is not under Services as thetrojan removed it.
To make matters worse, HP programmers thought it would be cool to not include a vista OS installation disk, but instead add a crappy program on the computer that would allow you to replace programs, but unfortunately it cannot repair my security center.
I have recently installed SP1 to my Vista X64 machine (dual core 6700 o/c to 3ghz, 8 gb ram, raptor 10K 74gb system harddrive, raptor 10K 150gb large file and partitioned PS scratch disk, 340 gb 'everthing else' harddrive, nvidia 8800 640mb gts videocard, wacom A3 wide table) and I have noticed really strange behaviour in PS CS3. It generally feels slower and when I work on larger files (183x120cm @300dpi) it's much slower than pre-sp1 on the same file size.
The odd thing I have noticed is that it crashes (fades to white - not responding ) when I use the transform scale tool and when I add a Layer blending effect ( drop shadow / gradient etc ) it never did this before as it used to render it instantly.....now it takes a least 30 sec to 1 min to create and/or recover from the 'not responding' white out screen. Has anyone else found this with PS CS3 and Vista SP1? - It's very annoying especially as I had the system perfect before the SP1 upgrade. How can I fix this?
I have a Genuine version of Windows Vista on my system. Four times now I have tried to install SP3 with failure each time. It will go through the complete installation process with the 3 stages upon restart and shows success on all three of those stages but comes back saying that the upgrade did not take and my system is reverting and changes that were made during the install. My system ill run normal afterwards.
