  • 1. How do I keep Office Picture Manager?
    Just last week I purchased a new laptop with XP Home pre-installed. I immediately downloaded and installed SP2. I noticed that SP2 gave me Office Picture Manager when I previously installed it in two of my other systems. My new laptop came with Office 2003 trial version installed and it will self-destruct after Nov 30. It looks as if it will take my Office Picture Manager with it. Is there a way I can retain the OPM? Can I (should I) reinstall SP2 over top? -- BP Murphy
  • 2. Programs not installing with Username - How to supply username
    Inside the Registry are a number of Keys named RegOwner. These are where that data is stored. Usually, if Windows XP itself has those keys populated other programs clone that data. That's why when you install an application, the data is filled in automatically.

  • 3. I goofed up badly
    I was playing around with my computer and now when I restart it just goes to the welcome screen and stops. In order for me to be able to get into my computer I need to shut off, turn on and then press F8 and then it tells me I can log on as I usually do. Also have set my files as private and not sure how to undo that as I am the only one here. I must be a dummy for trying new things. PLEASE HELP this dummy out and get it back to all I have to do is power up and click my administrator and windows will load. thank you very much. Allan
  • 4. No new virus definitions for weeks
    I've had no helpful responseto my enquiries in the Symantec groups, so wonder if someone here can help please? It's now several weeks since LiveUpdate downloaded anything new. Each time I open NAV (part of SystemWorks 5.0) and manually initiate LU, I'm told all my Symantec programs are fully up to date. I renewed my subscription some months ago, so that can't be the problem. LiveReg LiveUpdate Norton AntiVirus 2002 Norton AntiVirus Virus Definitions Norton Ghost 2002 Norton SystemWorks 2002 Norton Utilities 2002 SARC Submission Software Updates ScriptBlocking Speed Disk Symantec Common Driver: SymEvent Symantec Redirector Surely this cannot be so? Have the virus writers gone on indefinite leave, or what?
  • 5. Need Help! (Media Player)
    Can anyone help me? My Media Player (version 10) is driving me crazy... it only displays a small portion of the video and then the screen goes black. The video continues to play, and sound is present, but the screen goes black. I've checked settings and reinstalled, but can't figure out why it's doing that. If you've experienced this, or know someone who has, and know the fix... PLEASE respond. Thanks.

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

I selected scandisk to scan each of my partitions while I was in Explore.  
Windows says it can only do it when it restarts so I shut down and let it 
restart.  Now the scandisk starts on the last partition first and when it 
gets to the next one it crashes and restarts the computer.  The whole thing 
starts all over again and keeps rebooting.  I need to stop this loop.  I can 
get access to the hard drive files using another windows install so can 
someone tell me what file to delete to kill the scandisk request???   I am 
using Windows XP Pro on my system. There must be a way to just kill the 
scandisk request before the Windows startup.

You might try putting your computer in Safe Mode and then selecting "Last 
Known Good Configuration" and see if this will get you out of the loop that 
you are in .Go to  http://www.**--****.com/

I had to do a deep scandisk con WIN XP HOME and it asked for next time

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.
now I can't reboot the system, it always write the CONTROL IS DONE.

shutdown the DEEP CONTROL in SCANDISK, but the system can only boot, and
start again the HDD CONTROL.

You must schedule the task under the Task Scheduler
and use an account that has sufficient privileges to do
the job. Try this in order to find out what's going on:

@echo off
echo %date% %time:~0:5% User=%UserName% Path=%path% > c:\test.log
net stop "Some Service" 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err

Now have a look at the two log files and all will become clear!
