  • 1. Console Recovery Invalid password.
    After ALOT of work I found that the reason I am not able to get past the administrator password when trying to enter the console recovery mode is that there is a bug in the application. Apparently hotfix Q308402 will solve my problem. How do I get this hotfix? Also I can get around the problem with a simple registry edit that basically turns off the prompting for a password. I have tried this and it works, but I would like to make the system right.
  • 2. recovery console won't accept proper password
    I recently had to use the recovery console that you get to by booting from the XP cd. Now that the hard disc problems are gone (new one installed), I thought I'd make sure I can get back into the recovery console if I ever need it again. I can't. My adminstrator account had no password. Recovery console insisted on one and wouldn't let me in. So I booted up regular, created a password, created a no-forgotten password disk to prove xp recognized the password, and shut down. i then booted up regular and XP recognized the password and let me in. so I shut down, and when when i tried to boot off the XP CD and get into recovery console and entered the proper password, it still told me it was the improper password. but the computer knows it's the proper password, since i can boot up fine regularly after entering that password. could my xp cd be corrupt? or what? possible wrinkle: the new hard drive was set up by using Drive Image 7 to just copy over the image of the old hard drive. everything else on the computer works fine. so i kind of doubt this is the cause of my problem, but figured i should mention it. thanks!!
  • 3. 0x8007007a error from Task scheduler
    On a WinXP Home edition PC, I scheduled a few tasks but I am getting "an error has occurred while attempting to set task account information: 0x8007007a: The data area passed to the system call is too small" message from the Task scheduler after entering the account password. Any idea on how to fix this or where is the best place to get an answer?

  • 5. taskbar font for folder
    I put a folder on my taskbar. That works fine. However, the font for the folder name is very small and quite light. It is difficult to read. How owuld I go about changing the properties of the font? It appears to be the same font as the one for the clock as best as I can tell. 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/

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.

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!
