  • 2. Windows System Restore Points
    Hi, My PC is not retaining the system restore points, either those created automativally or manually. It seems restore points are only retained until I reboot, and then there gone. The PC drive has 3 partitions, with the following system restore settings C:\ 8% (9237 MB) Free space 88832MB, main working partition D:\ 12% (623 MB) Free 1100MB, restore partition G:\ 100% (7 MB) Free 4MB backup partition, reduced to minimum size Fragmentation is minimal 5.24% on C:\ zero on D:\ & G:\ I have 2 Remote drives and system restore is disabled for both of these. My OS is XP Home SP2. Any help in resolving this would be appreciated Joco (London) Joco (London)
  • 3. Clearing DEP Messages for Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
    It's July 14 and I have these DEP messages going back to July 6. I got tired of having to hit enter twice, once for the error message and once to send a report to the oblivion of Microsoft. I learned that I could get on with using my computer by just moving the error message to the bottom of my screen and ignoring it. I've been reading the posts and I may have figured out how to resolve my problem with yet another Microsoft download. In fact, my problem may have been resolved, but Windows seems to be unwilling to let go of these error messages. Is there anyway I can flush these out of my system, or am I doomed to hitting the enter key about 42 times while I dream of owning an Apple?????

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/

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!
