  • 1. Virtual Memory - page file creation error
    I have recently been having some problems with my virtual memory. Some time ago I suddently got a message (after a computer restart right after the welcome screen) saying that either I did not have virtual memory or I had very amount of virtual memory. I went to system properties, clicked the performance tab and got a message that a page file was created because I did not have one. I went to C drive and for some reason there was still no page file. Later I went back to virtual memory options and found out that the settings are set properly - 766 megabytes min and about 1200 maximum. I clicked apply, got a message to restart the computer and the same thing happened again - got the error message after the welcome screen... Somebody please help me with this... P.S. my task manager strangely indicates that I have a page file of 290 megabytes (although I don't) but as soon as I go over my memory limit and don't have any free memory left, the programs just close themselves. That means I really do not have that page file..
  • 2. XP error message when trying to Update virus def. in Norton
    I get the following error message, when trying to update virus definitions in Norton Antivirus: "Windows XP 5.1.2600 Service Pack 1 Common Client Core 2.1.0 Could not find installation path for at least one component" This is then followed with message from Norton: LU1806. Filed to complete installation..... I tried downloading SP2, but it created a lot of problems, and have since removed it, using Advanced Uninstaller Pro 2004. Can anyone help me past this?
  • 3. regedit, msconfig and taskmanger will not open.
    When I try to run msconfig and regedit from the run window or do a ctrl-alt-del the program opens for about 1 second then closes again. I have used 4 different anti-virus programs no viruses. I have spy-bot and ad-aware and found nothing.
  • 4. For Kelly Slow Logon Network interface confusion?
    Hi Kelly, I solved the problem in the end, my TV tuner card needs to use TCP/IP and for some reason was trying to obtain an address from the DHCP server, however there is no connection from the card to the DHCP server so it had to wait and time out. I have put in a false 10 series hard coded address and this has stopped all of the time out problems.

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

Postby R2lsYW4 » Fri, 02 Jun 2006 05:46:02 GMT

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!
