i have no "run" program

Windows XP


  • 1. Long delay first time users log in
    I have a lab with 30 PCs running Win XP. At the end of the school year on one PC, I make any needed changes and eliminate all the files saved by students all year. I then image that PC using Ghost and cast the image onto all the other PCs in the lab. The only signifigant change I made this year was to update the PC to SP2. The problem is that now the first time a user logs onto a PC, it takes >5 MINUTES to load their profile. (We do not use roaming profiles.) After that, if they use the same PC, it takes the usual 8 SECONDS or so.
  • 2. MS Config\Startup items
    Hi In Ms Config>startup window, I have an entry under Startup Items with a number of squares in a row and also in the Command line. The location of this is ""software\microsoft\windows\current version\windows Has anyone got any idea as to what this is. I can't find it in the registry. Also in the same window, I want to get rid of a couple of other entries such as "snoopfreeui" which is proving a problem to eradicate. I have uninstalled the programme as I should but the entry still seems to be there and ticked. When I untick it and come out of Startup and then go back in again the items is again ticked. How do I delete these sort of items from the startup screen. Any help would be appreciated Regards
  • 3. Explorer Shell and IE Not Working
    Windows XP Professional SP2 is installed on a system which was working perfectly until two days back. All of a sudden IE hanged the system a couple of times and the system had to be rebooted forcedly. Now the system boots up normally but the IE does not run. The Windows Explorer also does not run. Double clicking on My Computer, Recycle Bin, My Documents and My Network Places makes everything disappear from the Desktop and then appear again after few seconds. Control Panel also cannot be opened from the Start Menu. Reinstalling SP2 also has not made any difference. Please let me know what needs to be done to repair the system. Thanks,
  • 4. No Computer Power Down on Win XP Shutdown
    System: AMD Athlon 64 3400+, 2.20 GHz, 1Mb of RAM, Win XP SP2 Recently my computer fails to power down after shutting down Win XP. Start-Turn Off Computer-Turn Off proceeds normally but after the system shuts down, the computer remains on and must be turned off manually. How can I fix it so that the computer powers down automatically after Win XP shuts down? Thanks.

left click "Properties"-then "Start Menu" tap at top (if 
not there already)-click the "Customize" button beside 
whatever is selected or dotted in "Start Menu"(XP)
or "Classic Start menu."                                   
If you're in XP(the first one at the bottom), click 
the "Advanced" tap at top- put a check in the "Run 
command" box in "Start menu items:"-click OK-then in the 
next window, click Apply-OK.                             
If you're in the "Classic Start menu"-click Customize-then 
in the "Advanced Start menu options:"-check "Display Run"-
then OK-Apply-and 
Hope that helps!

1.program running without having nothing open

I do not know if this is on the correct newsgroup but I will try anyway.
Everytime I sign in my computer it tells me that I have for example 2 
program running when in fact I do not have any. Is there a way to see what 
is running and is there a way stop those program running behind?

Thank you very much.

2.Having trouble running some programs

For some reason, my system is refusing to start certain .exe files. One is an 
installation file from Hewlett Packard, for my scanner, the other I just 
noticed today and is a beading pattern maker that worked perfectly fine a 
month ago.  I have whatever updates were available from Microsoft as of about 
three weeks ago. I've tried running the files through the Run command on the 
start menu, but that doesn't work either.

3.How to run program as admin without having to enter password

Is it possible to allow a limited user to run a specified 
application as Admin (or another user)?.
I know that you can go to a shortcut's properties and go 
to Advanced and set "Run with different credentials".  
But as far as I know this always prompts for a password. 
Obviously, I do not want to give out the admin password. 
I would like to be able to do the equivalent of providing 
an Admin security level shortcut to a specific app to a 
specific user (possibly by encrypting the user's password 
in the shortcut).  Is this too much to ask?
Current Scenario:
5 year old has an older game that requires copying driver 
to c:\Windows folder at runtime. I do not want to set up 
5 year old as System Admin, nor do I want to give away 
password, but I do want her to be able to play her game. 
What are my options?
