I have an unknown running process on my computer called "Andrea RT Filters Service". It runs as a Windows servce on start up. I googled it and come up with "Andrea Electronics Corporation". When I contacted them to see if I could get some information about the application. they replied that the do not own or distrubute any application by this name. I have stopped the service and disabled it and there seems to be no side effects.
As i already stated, my drive doesn't read any dvd's anymore. I've already tried to:
-Remove Upper/lower filters (Lower filters were missing, could this be the problem?) -Switching the sata ports from were the device was connected. -Upgrading the firmware of the dvd player -Upgrading the Bios -Asked here -Some stupid things.
Windows and the bios do see this drive and give it the correct name. I've already tried this with an other drive and she had this problem to.
I might be in the wrong place , but, I tried to install filters for my photoshop x64 but they go into x86 directory and do not show in the filter lists. I deleted adobe from the x86 dir but its still the same the filters do not show. These filters worked fine when they were used when my machine was x86. I there a cure?
In the "Folder Options" > General tab, I ask for each folder to open in its own window, it does not happen. I also request to use classic windows folders but the only difference from that and "show preview and filters" is whether the tool bar shows or needs alt to display it.
a while back I was sent an email by Microsoft telling me about some software that would basically lock you compter so that you could use it but not make any changes to it...it looked like it was aimed at public libraries...
I have something really strange happening here i have this prog and it says a file or one of its dependancies is missing its called FUSIONButtons.ocx so i looked around and several sites have it but every time i try to download it i get an error. ive tried several sites and some of them were rar files and when i extract it nothing shows. so a friend of mine has the same software with the same problem and got the ocx file no problem and tried to send it to me over msn every time there was an error most of the errors were cannot read source file or filer no longer exists the rars gave no error and was inside when i looked but if i extract here nothing appears. I have 2 computers one with XP sp2 and another with vista ultimate x64 and ive tried a bunch of sites and several friends who have the file on both computers and its always the same thing. The last thing we tried was to rar the whole prog with the need file included and when i got it that 1 file had disappeared or would not show on my systems. I turned off all my firewalls and antivirus, i must add that the first time i tried to get it nod removed the file so i shut nod off and i also went in and set folder options to show all hidden files. I also tried putting the whole rared prog on a flash drive and extracted it on the flash then tried to run the prog from the flash but same thing. Can someone pls explain this wierd thing thats going on here its driving me insane !! i must also add that this is not happening with any other files now or any other file i can rememeber
I think I've got this virus on my laptop. In the startup menu it's called MSSMSGS. I've searched it up on the internet but I couldn't find anything to confirm my suspicions on whether it's a virus or not.
There's a file on my D drive called ntldr. I understand that this is a vital part of windows, however this file is on a hard drive which windows ISN'T installed on now. Windows XP used to be on this drive about 2 years ago but when i got a new hard drive back then, i installed windows on that (C) new hard drive (and have since installed Vista on) and removed it from the one which is now D drive. Since this is not the HD which houses my OS, can i delete ntldr? UPDATE: and ntdetect.com as well.
In a Vista Windows Explorer window, what is the right pane's name? There is the Layout/Menu Bar/Details Pane, Preview Pane & Navigation Pane but I don't see a name for this pane....I think maybe it is called the Folder Pane or Display Pane or the Folder Display Pane?
I'm trying to install an image editing software called PhotoPlus X2, which claims to be Vista compatible. However, when I run the setup.exe I get a Windows installer error 1619. I'm running Vista Business SP1 x86 and I'm logging in to the desktop with an admin account. Updating the Windows installer to version 4.5 didn't.
The Go-News menu function in Outlook 2007 on Vista Home Premium SP1 will NOT call any other newsreader other than Windows Mail, even when the other news reader is set as default.(Ie it opens when external news links are clicked).This is in direct contradiction to Outlook 2007 on XP.
Back in the days when I used XP there was a registry altering utility called xp_balloontips.vbs. Running this useful utility managed to get rid of most of XP's annoying balloon tips that come up on mouse rollover. Does anyone know if there is anything similar for Vista?
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.
There's a folder in the my documents folder called searches. There are numerous sub folders under it and, together, they contain 5300 items taking roughly 39 GB of space on my drive. What is the purpose of this folder? Can it be deleted without destroying my system? If so, how can I prevent this folder from filling up again?
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?
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 a suggestion for Windows. It would be nice if there was a concept of "universal" keyboard commands. For example, CTRL+C could be mapped, by the user, to a universal command called "Copy." As it is now, most applications use CTRL+C as copy, but there is no real uniformity to this. Some users prefer to use CTRL+INSERT for copy, and this is less commonly supported.
Applications would have the choice of directly handling either the CTRL+C messages (as they do now) or handling the "universal" message that the "Copy" key was pressed. This would allow the most flexibility, so that existing apps would continue to work normally, but new apps would have the option of switching to the more generic approach. Only the most common commands need representation as "universal" commands. Things like cut, copy, paste, undo, redo, select-all, select- none, etc... And media commands like play, pause, stop, record would be nice, too. Interestingly, "record" could apply to recording audio or video, as well as something like recording a macro in a text editor or spreadsheet.......
Is IE 8 out of beta mode? Can IE 8 be uninstalled if necessary? Can you install IE 8 without any so called "toolbars" or helper gizzmos? Is there any benefit in switching to IE 8? Is there a separate IE 8 newsgroup?
move files from an XP to a Vista machine and exported all of his Outlook Express email, copied that file to the desktop on the Vista machine, then imported it into Vista's email program. However the folder for email is now on his desktop, and is called Old Email backup. I know that one of these days he is going to delete it and wonder where his email went. What is the default folder it should have created the email in? I will move it there.
When I install Vista, it wants to force me to create a local account, and it won't let me create one called Administrator, becuase the name is already used (thus the Administrator account exists). I don't want to create some dummy account just just to log in to join the domain. How do I get past the "Choose a user name and picture" screen and log in as Administrator so I can just install the network drivers and join my domain?

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.
