Security :: Windows Command Processor Black Box Pop Up
Mar 4, 2014
Every time I switch on my laptop I get a windows command processor black box pop up with writing in it i cant read what the writing says because it disappears quickly some one says its a virus or spyware. when i run a virus scan no problems are found and when i run a malware scan it says no problems. How can I get rid of it?
I have a 6 yr old Dell Dimension E520 currently running Windows 8. I tried to upgrade to 8.1 but have been denied because my processor doesn't support PAE, NX or SEE2. I've read some posts that stated that this was an issue preventing them from installing version 8. It wasn't an issue for me since 8 installed. My questions are why would this effect me now and is there a work around?
I Installed Windows 8 Pro on my PC and another Same PC of my brothers....
Both PCs are exactly same i.e. Compaq Presario SR1924IL except our RAMs and Hard Disk... He has 1.43 GB Ram and I have only 1 GB... He has 160 GB hard drive and again, I have 80 GB Hard Drive but when We installed Windows 8 Pro on our PCs the System Properties Are Different... We have Pentium D processor which in His Case is 2.80 GHz and in my case it's 2.67 GHz..
Right now I have an asus h61-le-CSM motherboard with EFI; it's a little older with a i3 2120 processor. On Friday I'm upgrading to a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H with a i7 processor.
Right now, I have windows 8 installed. I believe I purchased the upgrade version, although the receipt from microsoft in my e-mail has no mention of the word upgrade, it just says Windows 8 Pro. I am going to want to do a clean install with this stuff which I am capable of doing, however I don't know what I need to do to keep Windows. Will I be ok just re-entering my key?
My laptop is powered by an intel core i7 640m processor. I'm wishing to upgrade my system to windows 8 and i'v found, processor should be support PAE, NX, and SSE2 in windows 8 requirements page. In processor info section, PAE value is displayed as 36-bit and no any info about NX and SSE2 where can I find those information? that the i7 640m processor supports those features or not and is it windows 8 ready?
I do a lot of computer animation, and I am often wanting to set off a render overnight, where the computer thinks hard about turning wireframe triangles into pretty pictures.
Problem is I was waking up to find that my render had not proceed very far at all, and gone to sleep. If I go to power settings and tell it to 'Never Sleep' then my render makes it all the way through.
But I don't want to be a sweatshop labor boss and never let my sweet worker bee get any sleep. I want it to work till it finishes the render, and then go to sleep. That's how it used to work on my old Win XP box.
Is there a way I can set sleep to say, only kick in if cpu usage is below a certain percent?
First of all Re-install is NO option WHATSOEVER. Because i have 500 + games installed. I have a masterbackup of it but i have 200+ new games I want to fix this installation before I do a new masterbackup.
The problem is I can't install nvidia drivers I got failed to install simple error. I think this is related to the processor /raminfo not showing in management computer and DXDIAG.
So I read around abit and it was said problem might be related to WMI? So I did all things suggested but I still get the error code 127 when trying to start WMI.
Recently I noticed a game that I had been playing had started to stutter and slowdown more than usual, the performance issues were to be expected as the games engine is notorious for being poorly optimized, however these occurrences were fairly rare in comparison to the issues i'm experiencing now.
It seems for the last two days the performance of said game had been dismal, where i'd get a mostly consistent frame-rate before, I now only have a stutter riddled mess.
Looking through the Event Log I noticed a entry shown as; Kernel-Processor-Power Event ID 37, the text below it shows this; 'The speed of processor 0 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 7 seconds since the last report' the entry had been generated at '7:56pm' of today, which I found odd, as I believe that's when I started my game.
This had not been the only instance it seems, there were some entries from a few weeks back that show the same thing, however they were few and far in between. It seem I have 3 entries, all from today (12:00am, 3:56pm, 7:56pm) all warnings.
o.k. long story short before installing 8.1.1 in my real environment i tested it out extensively in vm. i found out that if you get past a certain point with the windows updates bitdefender will not install, if you install bd prior to a certain point it installs and works great even after you do the rest of the windows updates. How to get it installed and working correctly in a fully updated 8.1.1? i have eset smart security in, but i'd rather have my bitdefender.
I often format my laptop and uses virtual machine as well. So I had a batch (.bat) file to change all windows setting through registry. This batch file also changes command prompt screen size, buffer size and quick edit mode. However this does not work on Windows 8 command prompt setting.
Registry use to change the setting are: - HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_System32_cmd.exe - HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_SysWOW64_cmd.exe
Just wondering is there any way to change the setting in Windows 8 using batch file?
I'm new to Windows 8 and I'm having a hard time managing my way around. My windows automatically installed almost all of my drivers, but failed to recognize the coprocessor. When i open the properties it says:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
When i try to find the driver automatically,it fails, but i cant find them aswell.
My motherboard is ASROCK 939a8x-m, therefore it has an nvidia chipset in it. I fail to find the neccessary drivers aswell and i don't know what else to do.
I was browsing around and attempting to build a program with MS-DOS. I can't get the choice command to work in Windows 8, and I have browsed the internet searching for the problem and a solution. It seems that Microsoft has removed Choice from Windows 8 supported commands. Is there any way possible I can make this work? I also own a Windows XP desktop and I can make the codes on it, but I can't get them to run on Windows 8?
Which registry settings should I change to set the top two default Windows rules back to 'Unrestricted' ?
I set up some rules in the local security policy some time ago when there was fuss in the news about the cryptolocker virus. They looked a lot like the rules above (I found that screenshot online as I can't take one myself, read on..)
Today I was installing some software that wanted access to the areas I restricted. I temporarily disabled the rules, then re-enabled them. Being a dumbass I also set the top two rules (which are Windows default rules) to Disallowed!
Over the following 10 minutes various aspects of my PC stopped working, telling me that the local security policy prevented access. I couldn't even get into the Control Panel or the Local Security Policy screen to change it back, once I realised what I had done. I rebooted the machine - it won't come back up
I've tried a system restore by booting from the installer on USB (which did not work, it grumbled that it could not restore due a file locked by anti-virus) so I think I've got two options:
Refresh my system using the Windows 8 tools - but I suspect that might leave the LSP rules in place, as it retains my settings & preferences.Hand edit the registry to correct the settings.
Option 2 is looking best, I can get into RegEdit from the recovery console, but I'm not sure what to edit and what to set it to? This is on Windows 8.1 Pro...
I came to some trouble installing CorelDraw software which apparently uses for it's setup launcher web active container performed by IE core. If I launch setup, the setup windows is evidently noninitialized showing the top warning band about active content being blocked for security reasons. Even allowing active content by selecting from the top bar menu doesn't make the setup continue. So now I'd need to temporarily bypass all IE's security checks, ie. allow everything. What I already did was browsing the security tab in IE options and allowing most of the choices in branches ActiveX controls and plugin modules + Scripting (Local Intranet). On Advanced tab I have checked in Security branch Allow execution of active content from CD discs on this computer + Allow execution of active content from files on this computer. Nothing of these affecting the installer to run (ie. I still see then active content blocking bar).
I accidentally installed an adware called Rocket tab however I uninstalled it but after restarting my computer, I am prompted with the following error message. Now, every time I start up my computer this message pops up .
I am running 8.1, and firefox 25. I can't download or run Avast, or download any executables, suddenly. I lowered my security settings to Medium and added Avast to the firewall permissions, but to no avail. My download settings were already at "prompt" anyway, so there's something deeper I can't figure out. I'm a reasonably competent generalist but not super computer smart.
I seem to be having a problem when command prompt needs to run anything as an admin.
This happens whenever it feels it needs to do so, like when setting a program to run as admin myself, or running an installer, like the setup for firefox (I'm in chrome right now, but I happen to prefer firefox)
Basically, whenever it needs to run anything, it'll open up to the user account controls window in this picture:
Upon clicking yes, it opens the command prompt you see in the left of the image for a split second, then closes. (it took many attempts to get a clear shot using printscreen, and I did edit it to have the UAC prompt in the same image to save space)
I'm guessing a manual regedit of some kind, as running any program is obviously blocked by the problem itself. (I cannot install any fixing programs, and anything that needs to run as admin to work is out as well).
I need to execute the command prompt as admin. When I try to do it the command prompt window doesn't open and there are no errors. If I run the command prompt without admin privs it works, but I then can't do what I need to do in the admin window.
