The video adapter on my laptop running Vista 64 died. As it died I was able to use Vista to backup my files. I have rescued my old Dell desktop which is running XP sp2. Now I want to restore some of the files from the Vista backup to my desktop. I can access the backup files but there are 300 of them. How do I find the files I want to restore? If this cannot be done using XP, can it be done when I get my new desktop running Windows 7?




I am totally stumped (not to mention a tad panicked). Went to locate a file in a folder on my PC (Windows 7, SP1) and couldn't find either the file or the sub-folder - or any of the other sub-folders that were all there 2 days ago for sure. Next step was to head to MozyHome, a cloud-based backup, to restore the folders ... none of them were there either! I have been relying on Mozy for data backup and have had success restoring inadvertently deleted files/folders previously.

Here's what I've tried:
recycle bin: nothing therePC off and onsystem restore (just in case): strange thing here in that both attempts to restore failed (never had that happen to me before)searched through all other folders in case somehow missing ones got moved.
I'm out of ideas. All else is working fine on the PC as far as I can tell. Naturally, the missing files are numerous and critical ones. I know, given that, I should have had more than the Mozy backup, but I just didn't, at least not recently enough to be of help now.

Is there anywhere else I can look? Or do?

P.S. Just ran Belarc Advisor which said the drive was healthy.
P.P.S. - Weird. Just tried to find a folder via Windows Search box at Start menu. What does this mean? How can I find out where the little beggar is hiding?




My hard drive died. My recovery disks were for Vista, so after getting a new drive and running them, I upgraded to Windows 7, which is what I had done before. I established my user profile of TVZ. I created a "TVZ" folder under "Users", then put all my backed up files in it. However, none of my app data, desktop, etc., showed up for me.
In Windows Explorer I can see that they are under UsersTVZ. However my computer doesn't seem to be looking in that folder. I don't know where it is looking. How can I make the computer find the stuff I have in my UsersTVZ folder?
Thanks much in advance for any guidance you can offer.




I have several problems with my MS Windows XP Pro system.

1. My desktop computer has a wired connection to my router. A Laserjet is
wired to the desktop. An Officejet is wired to the router. I want the
default printer to be the Laserjet. Since the last upgrade of the software
for the Officejet, the default printer becomes mysteriously set to the
Officejet. The Officejet instructions say to set the default printer via
the Printers and Faxes dialog, so Officejet doesn't appear to have any way
for a user to use Officejet software to override the Windows setting. How
can I set the Laserjet to be my default printer and have it stay that way?

2. My home network also has a laptop (XP Pro) that uses a wireless
connection for a Workgroup. The desktop is given a fixed IP address, The
desktop is in the /etc/hosts file of the laptop, and the laptop is able to
see the desktop and its printer. Somehow, the desktop was changed back to
DHCP (by one of the software updates?) recently, so the laptop didn't
communicate with it. The laptop also couldn't print on the Laserjet
because it didn't see the desktop. When I discovered that the laptop
couldn't print via the desktop, I attempted to delete the print jobs. They
wouldn't delete. In frustration, I deleted the desktop's printer from the
laptop. Now Printers and Faxes on the laptop shows no printers but says
that there are print jobs waiting. Thus, it appears that I have an active
print queue for a nonexistent printer. I have restored the fixed IP
address for the desktop, and the laptop and desktop communicate with no
problem. Unfortunately, although the laptop can once again see shared
files on the desktop, it can't find the printer on the desktop. The
printer is shown as shared on the desktop, and the network setup dialog
shows that print sharing is enabled. How can I purge the print queue on
the laptop? What should I do to have the laptop use the desktop's printer?

Thanks.

But that isn't what I was trying to get.
I was trying to get Aart Jensen to explain to me how to find the entry in
msconfig as explained in his email.
My feeling is that his thery may be the real problem here--that is: the
remnant of a virus is asking for that file upon boot and by deleting this
request for that file it should take care of the error message....
Just a speculation on my part....

How do I actually LOCATE it in msconfig--that is not clear to me....
Where do I put the winlogon.exe name?
When I click on expand file, there are 3 options where to look for the
file...
1) File to Restore
2) Restore from (No idea....)
3) Save file in... (No idea...)
How do I actually do this?

Every time I turn on my computer for the day within 5 minutes it shuts down
and reboots and comes up normally. Then displays the Severe Error Message
(Asks if I would like to send a report to Microsoft). The message displays
this:

Error Signatu
BCCode: 100000d1 BCP1:00000001 BCP2: 00000002 BCP3: 00000001
BCP4: F83BA600 OSVer: 5_1_2600 SP: 2_0 Product 768_1

And gives me option to view the log file which points to these folders:

C:Documents and SettingLocal SettingTempWER4594.dir00Mini011005-01.dmp
C:Documents and SettingLocal SettingTempWER4594.dir00sysdata.xml

In the path of the Temp folder above, the WER4594.dir00 does not exist.

I do find the file Mini011005-01.dmp in the C:WINDOWS
MinidumpMini011005-01.dmp, but cannot find the sysdata.xml file anywhere on
my computer.

The Mini011005-01.dmp file I believe is a machine code memory dump, not
human readable.

My computer is Windows XP with SP2 and is fully up to date with all
Microsoft updates. My McAfee AV does not find any viruses (I am also going to
run the on-line scanner from Trend-Micro) but I don't believe a virus is the
culprit. Up to date AD-AWARESE and Spy Sweeper find nothing either.

After the Machine boots up it is very stable for the rest of the day !

I have tried the correction for a corrupted System Restore and page file
settngs but this has not helped.

How can I find what is causing the problem ?

Installed sp2 last nite, rebooted as prompted and once xp
tried to load got a "can't find winsrv, possibly reloading
update will correct problem" or close to that error.
Rebooting numerous times didn't help.
Rebooting into safe mode didn't work either. I just got
black screen filled with file names ending mostly
in .sys.

How do I restore the setpoint I made before SP2 install?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but since my file system is NTFS
based and not FAT32, I could not have made a recovery disk
for XP. Booting on my XP pro install disk and and going
to the recovery console only gets me to the C:windows
directory. How do I restore from there??
I really don't want to reinstall XP SP1!!




I compacted my large inbox and large sendbox. I lost all the emails between march 2006 and today. Though google desktop search can still find the messages. Strange.
I have a full hard disk back up from 4 days ago. Can I either restore the folders. ? how do I find the right ones and do i need to restore just dbx or other files? Or can I somehow fix the dbx so that OE finds the missing messages as Google destkotp does??




My OS is Win 7 Pro 32 bit.

To gain some space on my hard drives I deleted all previous restore points (via Control Panel- System ProtectionConfigure) and created a new one, relying on the fact that I have an up to date system image for my C drive, and backups of everything important on another drive. However, if I open System Restore I find that it lists not only the restore point I created, plus the System Image dated two days before the new restore point, but also quite a number of older System Image Restore points. (When I created the latest system image I deleted the older ones).

How can this happen?

Also, I recently formatted my D drive, then "recreated" it as a Simple Volume using the NTFS file system, and used drive letter D for the drive again. (I then restored the contents with a third party backup). I found that the drive was then shown as D (D in Computer Management, so I opened Computer and right clicked the drive to rename it just (D. Presumably as a result of this System Protection now lists not only the (D drive but also-with a folder icon-D, which it shows as "missing". How can I get rid of this reference to the missing D?

Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Roy




Although we normally use CCleaner on all our home computers, I also have System Mechanic with its specialized tools. Recently, Iolo System Mechanic notified me that an update was available, so I downloaded and installed the latest System Mechanic 10.7. Before running the new version I ran CCleaner (so I could later see what extra junk files Sys. Mech. would find). I also used Windows 7 Backup to create a System Image which was saved onto a separate hard drive. Next, ran some hard drive benchmarks to use for later comparison. See screenshot below.

Then ran Sys. Mech. cleanup routine which found more junk files and redundant/invalid Registry items (as expected) and removed them, after which the PC was restarted.

Next, ran Sys. Mech.'s SSD Accelerator application which is supposed to boost SSD performance. Afterwards, I restarted the PC and ran those benchmark tests again. The real shocker was the ATTO benchmark often used by SSD manufacturers because it's an "easy" test that usually shows fast/flattering results. Before running SSD Accelerator, the Kingston SSD attained peak 230/200MB/sec. sequential Read/Write speeds. After running the SSD Accelerator, the peak speeds dropped drastically to 97/46MB/sec. sequential Read/Write. See screenshot below.

I've written to Iolo tech support to ask them what is going on, how can I restore performance, etc.

Meanwhile, does anyone here have any suggestions? Has anyone else experienced this effect besides me?

Of course, I can restore from the backup image created earlier, and yet I'm curious about the whole affair and what other forum users may be able to contribute to the discussion.

Should also mention that I frequently recommend CCleaner to friends and other computer owners as a safe, sane tool for helping to maintain performance, and also caution them against using more "aggressive" cleaners unless they are sure they know what they're doing! But, golly, I just had to​ try out the latest tuneup tools!!




Hi all,
I have a problem with my laptop since this morning! I wanted to start it up as normally but it didnt want to start windos well, there was just a blue screen with a window "SETUP REPAIR" i have tried to solve it on my own but im not really into that suff , so now when i run my laptop it runs automatically START UP REPAIR and try to repair it but finally there just shows up a windos saying "Start Up cannot repair this computer automatically" . I aslo tried to start it from Advanced Boot Options and there is select "repair your computer" then there is a window saying SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS i select a language and clikc NEXT then "to acces recovery options, log on as a local user" and " to acces the command prompt as well, log using an administrator account" so i select administrator account and click ok and it says something like that "Your account has been disabled. Please see ur sysmtem administraor" but then i select my user name i clikc ok and it goes on to SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS and there i can choose a recovery tool , the operatin system is Microsof Windows vista on (C acer and ive tried to do startup repair or system restore (it doesnt find a restore point" and there is a still a problem that it cant repair it automactially!
I REALLY need help with that! is there anyone how could tell me step by step how to make it work! i have very important files on my laptop and all stuff like photos, documents, ect...i really dont wanna install new software which will delete all the files!
Agata
PS: sorry for some english mistakes, its not my mother tongue

ahhh....i have just notice that when i did starup repait last time it showed me message like this "if u have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera o portable music player, remove it and restart your computer, If u continue te see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance




I did a complete backup using Vista before sending my computer in for repair. I backed up to a USB portable drive. Then I formated the computer's disk to erase any information I had stored. Sent computer for repair and now it is back. When I go to the "Restore Files" I get the message "There are no back ups on this computer". I do advanced restore and get the same message. Even if I point it to my USB drive is states it cannot find the backup. It is there. I hope I don't have to copy 103g one file at a time. Any idea how I can restore back up to work? Thanks.




So I've been trying to restore my computer fully for days now. I used the Windows 7 Backup method about a week ago to backup 3 drives: C: (SATA-Primary), DSATA), and HIDE). They were successfully backed up, however restoring them has been a nightmare.
I re-imaged the C: drive back to its original state successfully using a 64-bit Recovery disc. Then using the restoration tool IN windows, I was able after several attempts to restore my Music to the H: drive.
Now my problem is that FKN D: drive!
When I select either "Restore my files from this backup" OR "Restore files for all users of this computer" both options fail to show any FILES in any of the Backup directories. I know they are there, because the space is occupied, and when navigating the zip's you can find the pieces of them scattered.
How am I supposed to help this stupid restore tool actually find them and not just the folders?!




Hello, I've experienced today a weird "error", that I even do not know how to search for it. Let me explain:

I had win 7 (32bit) installed at job, and worked on it for more than a year. Two weeks ago I got a new HDD and decided to make a clean install, starting from scratch. So, i disconected the old HDD with Win 7 on it (removed all wires, sata etc), connected the new empty HDD (C:) and performed the Win 7 full install (with same licence I had on the old one).

I shut down the computer, reconnect the old HDD (as G:) - I needed it for the jobs archive on it - and enterd the bios, disabled the boot for it and started the comp with the new Win 7.

All went OK, and after a week I decided to free some space on the old HDD (G:) so I made a dump folder on it which I was planning to delete and started to move everything from old HDD root into that folder. When I reached to the old users folder, there were some files I could not move, I clicked "try again" twice with no succes and sudenly my desktop blanked and all icons dissapeared from it. I recieved some message about "system files" and when I accesed (C:) My Computer, in Users - on my new HDD with the actual running Win 7 everything was gone... How is it possible to move some old win 7 files from an HDD (G:) that was not in the system when I installed a new Win 7 on other HDD (C:), AND WIN 7 to start moving his own files?

I had some luck in a restore point made a week ago and managed to repair Win 7.

I researched the problem and did not find anything. I did not made any hard links or similar and I do not understand how files and folders became jammed between old HDD with Win7 and the new one? Both, with all files, were installed and had real files, with no shortcuts.

Can anyone help me? Can anyone explain what happened? How can I empty the old HDD without affecting this weird connection between independent files?

Thank you, Max




Hi guys,
I come back to you after some time away in a happy place where tech support is never needed, once again humbly requesting your expertise.

When my laptop hinge busted, I salvaged the HDD and decided to mount it in my next desktop build and use it until I bought another HDD to sell it with. This drive was partitioned with a dual boot of Win7pro64 and Backtrack 5r1 64, both were pretty well maintained, no foreseeable issues with swapping the drive, right?

Well, we seem to be having some technical difficulty, on both fronts. As this is sevenforums, Ill restrict this to my Windows 7 issues, but for any bilingual folks out there that are interested, I'm posting the other half of the dilemma on linuxquestions, sparing them the windows part of it lol. Ill add a link to it once its up.

Okay so here is the hardware setup I am working with.

Asus M5A97 mobo, amd970/sb950 chipset, is rated to support all components
AMD FX-8120 CPU Black Edition
16 GB G-Skill Sniper pc3-12800 ram
XFX nVidia GeForce 6800GT 256MB GDDR3 (I can hear your snickering )
Raidmax 630w PSU
Samsung Supermulti Optical
WD Scorpio Black Laptop SATA HDD

Everything listed is brand new, purchased online, save for the HDD of course. The video card was purchased used at the local computer shop, last-minute.

So just let me explain the nvidia card real fast I planned this build assuming my old HD3870 would work just fine, but it went out on me almost right away. I had it hookup up to a coby tv with a 1366x768 resolution, which is what the nvidia card is powering now as well, via DVI-I output to a DVI to HDMI adapter, then through an HDMI-HDMI cable to the tv, same as the HD3870 was (in case any of that proves relevant). My original intention was to leave this setup open for crossfire if I found another 3800 series. I should note that while the HD 3870 was working, I had booted it up alright and gotten to the boot animation for Windows 7 once. It then proceeded to reboot, after which my video card was toast and I could not get a successful POST. Now that the card is changed, here is what I am experiencing.

When I boot up, I get a POST beep, I go into the BIOS, everything is looking tip top. I select the HDD, everythings still going fine. Since I am running a dual-boot configuration, GRUB is my boot manager. I select the Windows 7 Boot Loader, and I have the option to run startup repair or try to boot normally. I tried the startup repair a few times. The first time it said attempting repairs, then said it would reboot and either boot successfully or continue startup repair. It does not boot up fine, in fact, I get a BSOD. I try the startup repair again, only for it to tell me the problem couldnt be fixed automatically. Well it gives me two options, to either view advanced details in a log file of some sort, or to log in to a user account to run some diagnostic utilities.

The log shows no errors of any kind - I went through each instance of startup repair and they were all negative for each category. There was one "root cause" listed for each attemp which said that 'a recent hardware change' may have caused this to happen. I was told by my college professor who holds an advanced certification for Windows 7 that you could swap a Windows HDD to another computer, and all that would happen is most hardware would default to Windows generic drivers, and you would have some short window of time to reactivate Windows within, due to some sort of built in anti-piracy feature throwing up red flags at the substantial hardware change. Have I been ill-informed, or do I have bigger problems than that?

I logged into my administrative account and the options provided are as follows: Startup Repair, System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, and the Command Prompt.
Startup Repair just fails and loops me back, System Restore can't find any restore points (very odd), and System Image Recovery is unusable for me since I never made a backup image. I ran the memory diagnostic as well as chkdsk /f, as advised, and neither found any errors. Selecting the Commant Prompt option, my working directiory is x:windowssystem32. I can switch over to c:, and I can access all of my files, personal, applications, and system alike, which appear to be intact (much of this I have verified via examination from my Backtrack/Linux partition).

Well, I've taken the Windows 7 course, and I don't want to screw around with finding the perpetrator behind my misfortune if I don't have to - I'll just do a side by side install, throw everything on c: into the "Windows.Old" folder, and get the ball rolling on re-crafting my setup, followed by some housecleaning. I have my original product key, all I have to do is pop in that install disc, right? Save the day? I could not have been more wrong.

I actually get a blue screen error while booting from the install disc. This is burnt with an iso obtained from MSDNAA, a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, the SP1 Debug Rollup. It's what I used to install the Windows 7 that is currently failing that I'd used for well over a year, and the Windows 7 on another machine I'd built. The serial is registered to me and it was all free through my college. When I did my second install, upon activation I asked if I would need to request a new serial since this one had been used, and was told NO, that my serial is MSDNAA specific, usable as many times as I'd like for academic purposes. You cannot even retrieve these from the system using means that would otherwise produce the correct key - it will come back as five sets of five B's. These are the only two times it has been used and this most definitely does not count as a third since it is the same OS, HDD, owner, serial, and disc even.

Circling back to the BSOD, the interesting thing to me is that the exact same blue screen error comes up while booting my Windwos partition as while attempting to boot from CD to reinstall. Is that significant? I know the terminology sort of clumps them all into the same category, but surely there is a correlation, no? I thought perhaps I was going crazy, and Windows had set some bit switch on the HDD that says "Help, I'm supposed to be in a laptop!" but this does not explain the CD.

I have tried to boot into safe mode, have tried Automatic System Recovery (which im given to understand is the same as Startup Repair), but no cigar. ASR behaves as startup repair did and safe mode = bsod. I have attached a picture of the error screen for reference. I have a copy of Ultimate Boot CD for Windows on my USB drive, but there is a plethora of utils and I dont know how to use most of them. If there is a specific tool that could remedy the issue or shed some light on the situation, I can certainly collect info and report back.

Hello guys, new here with a great hope to get help for a brand new problem I’ve never been facing before which is driving me crazy for many hours ‘till this very moment am writing down these words.

I’m running a single Windows 7 Ultimate x86 OS on my laptop and it used to work very well ‘till earlier today once I get back home trying to use my computer as usual to find out that it always runs the startup repair after showing the words “windows is loading files” instead of starting windows normally. Once the diagnostic & repair process is done it tells me that Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. When I view the details I get the following under Root cause found:

Boot configuration is corrupted.
Repair action: Partition table repair.
Result: Failed. Error code = 0x490

After many times doing the previous repairs with no result I went to Command Prompt in order to check my system drive to find out that both “Windows” & “Program Files” directories are not existed there anymore. Instead, there’s a “Windows.old” directory that contains those 2 system directories as well as “Users” & “PerfLogs” directories plus the “autoexec.bat” & “config.sys” files. Sure there’s noway to use the system restore tool or anything else even using my Windows boot DVD. Still can’t use the cmd commands single handedly to fix this.

As I said earlier I have never faced such problem before plus I have no idea how to regain my windows since I can never format my system drive as I need to backup all the files, settings, bookmarks & favorites located in my user profile first. can anyone plz explain what happened exactly and how to solve this problem ?!

Thanks a lot in advance and nice to be here with you all. Wish to get a reply soon.

To give you a little background I bought the computer about 4 months ago from IBUYPOWER. Up until about a week I had one BSOD in October but at the end of November it started to happen more and more frequently. I am not new to computers but I am in no means an expert so I ask for your help.

I am writing this right now because after the last BSOD it said "Windows can not start" and I had to restore to when it was previously working. So up until that point this is what I did.

Since working with computers almost my entire life I know most BSOD are due to either bad memory, drivers, or bios. I started there and updated my nvidea drivers but it happened again. I moved to the motherboard bios. I did find a newer one on there and using ASUS tool I flashed the BIOS. Same thing still happened. Next I ran memtestx86 for 8 hours and it returned no errors.

At this point I just decided to look for newest drivers for everything. One thing that happened consistently was that my wireless USB adapter from Cisco had to be unplugged and plugged back in for it to work. I went there first, reinstalled the drivers but still the same thing. I thought maybe it was my hard drive. I downloaded Seagates Utility tool and ran all the tests and they all passed fine. I ran defrag just for good measure along with windows version of the mem test and that passed as well. I still continued to get the BSOD and I have to tell you I'm irritated and also stumped.

Next I moved onto software. I have been using AVG free for years but I know virus programs do some crazy stuff and I got rid of that. Turned on windows defender. I decided that since the wireless adapter didn't work after these crashes maybe lets just go to a direct wired connection. I disconnected the cisco wireless adapter and I'm just using a direct connect right to my router.

These come at random times.. nothing I do can trigger it. It can stay on for days and not crash and then there are times it can be up for 10 min and crash.

Some of you might notice that in the CPU-Z screenshots I had to take the screenshot with the error underneath. Every time I chose either of the two slots it crashed the program.

I have not done anything internally besides add some neon to my computer which does not connect to the board at all.

I have seen IRQL blue screen once so I even went as far to go into the power settings for windows and make sure the usb and everything never went into any kind of "standby" mode.

I believe this is still under warranty and I would like to go in with good information if I need to challenge and get new hardware if that's what it is.

On a side note I have not touched the memory physically. I know some suggestions were to reseed the memory and chip but In my opinion something that has been working for months that never moves off my desk and is never basically touched besides the power button shouldn't mean something just came loose after 4 months of owning it. Again that's just my opinion.

I have removed AVG, Ad-Aware, Some webcam motion detector software (which was a joke) and the only thing that was really installed was Skyrim.

I thank you all for your time and I appreciate any help I can get on this matter.

Also before I go I am going to post what I purchased below just in case that helps.

STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility.

Your latest dump file (30-11-2011) lists HDAudBus.sys as the probable cause. This is a Windows System file and for it to be the cause of your crash is highly unlikely.
Old and incompatible drivers can and do cause issues with Windows 7, often giving false error codes. Random stop codes can often indicate hardware issues.

I've never seen CPU-Z throw up an error before. Maybe another member will have an idea on that.

As your dump is a few days old I'll go through it and advise as I find. Tick off, obviously, anything you've already dealt with.

As a Priority:

AVG is known to be a cause of BSOD's on Windows 7 systems. Suggest that you uninstall it. Download the correct AVG Remover for your system (32 or 64 bit).
If you have AVG ID protection installed, download the AVGID Protection Remover from the above link as well (it wouldn't hurt to download and run it anyway). Download BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as AVG's replacement.
Uninstall AVG through the Control Panel. Re-boot to Safe Mode and run the AVG Removal tool(s). Re-boot to normal mode and install MSE. Make sure your Windows firewall is enabled!

dtsoftbus01.sys Mon Oct 17 13:12:30 2011 The dtsoftbus01.sys driver has been known to cause problems on some Windows 7 systems. This belongs to Daemon Tools Light. I suggest uninstalling DT Light until your blue screens are resolved.

Drivers that pre-date Windows 7. Update:

GEARAspiWDM.sys Mon May 18 13:17:04 2009 Gear Software CD-ROM Class Filter Driver v4.015.1 (Feb 2010). Also loads with iTunes

vvftUVC.sys Tue Jul 01 04:14:41 2008 Vimicro Camera Filter Service

adfs.SYS Thu Jun 26 21:52:37 2008 This is the Adobe Drive driver. Do you use Adobe Drive? Do you know what Adobe Drive is/does? Can you tell me? I've found with Adobe Photoshop that if you decline installing this, certain essential stuff doesn't get installed. Once it (and the essential stuff) has been installed I remove Adobe Drive. Just my 2p worth! I've not seen it involved in blue screens but it does pre-date Windows 7 hence its entry here..

Drivers with Updates:

Not getting into PC vs Mac debate, just a little humor.

We are in the 21rst Century. We've been to the moon decades ago. We cracked the DNA code. We've invented some of the most sophisticated weaponry in the world including atomic bombs, precision guided missiles, Artillery Launched Precision Guided Munitions, Snake Robots and Stealth aircraft.

What would happen if Bill Gates would have been involved with any of these inventions?

Would it be ok to get a BSOD in a fighter jet? Would anyone buy a Mercedes that had to be restarted every 100 miles or a steering wheel that would stop turning because it needed a driver update? ("d r i v e r"..... update... get it? ;-) What about a cell phone that would call someone Else's Mom because the Sudoku you installed uses the same DLL as your Mom's phone entry...

Did you know that a fighter pilot MUST do 300 hundred checks before he can take off? Not only that, he must memorize them by heart and do them in 5 minutes. With big things, everything was taken into consideration to minimize casualties and frustration.

But what about the billions of computer users that depend on computers for work or fun? Do you think it's so hard to invent a system that would make computers more compatible with ANY hardware and software? I'm not talking about viruses and such things that will always be a problem (or will it...) I'm talking about all those software makers that develop software, advertise that it's Windows compatible and off it goes into your computer and wrecks the bejesus out of it!

Ok, I'll get real. New hardware means new drivers, hence new problems. It would cost too much for companies to resolve every single possible bug before releasing a software program so they just release the first thing that works, pray, and put up a FAQ on their website. If there are too many angry customers, they might even take the "contact us" link off the site.

So it comes back to the OS developers which in most cases is Bill Gates.
We all have seen many BSOD posted on these forums and people debugging them. It seems from these debug files that experienced people can find the cause of the BSOD more than 90% of the time. So the question that begs itself is why can't Windows tell us in a friendly popup and not a BSOD that the system would have crashed but since we are nice, we would like to inform you that your ABZ driver needs to be updated because it is 3 years old and is causing memory problems. Or that you might have a bad memory stick and should have it checked. Instead, you get a VERY annoying popup that says "Do you wish to send this to Microsoft?" How many people report? Ha.

And most of all, PROTECT the memory and system files and DON'T allow conflicting and forbidden access to RAM! I remember in much earlier versions of windows, every little bug would crash Explorer and restart the system. Today, many Explorer crashes just restart explorer on the spot but still, much more stability improvement is still needed.

How would you feel if 20% of your Google searches would result in a page that would say, "We are sorry, Google had a problem, and we could not complete your search. Please reboot your computer or restart Google to continue." Google would go bankrupt!

"Get a MAC!" people say. I'm not complaining about Windows, well... maybe I am, but my point is how people are so ignorant and accepted computers the way they are and don't think it can get better.

I myself take good care of my computer and think I had one BSOD 6 years ago. But that's not fair to people who don't even know how to create a new folder, let alone restore a system. When was the last time someone broke into America's gold reserves or into the White house? Never (I hope) because it's heavily guarded. Well, if the CPU is the brain of the computer, RAM is it's heart and should be guarded as well. Don't say it can't be done because it can.

I agree that like with any machine, a computer has the right to some sick days throughout the year. But the amount of sick days computers take is simply outrageous and unacceptable in this Century. If I had gone to engineering school, I'd come up with something that would knock the smelly socks off of Bill Gates. I'm surprised that systems with much less problems like the Mac or Linux hadn't become more popular then Microsoft. I can't even explain why I use it. It's just that It's been with me since 3.11 and I got used to it. Yes, I should switch and yes, I should stop smoking and yes to a lot of things, but this isn't about me.

Anywho, hope you enjoyed my 60 seconds (or was it more...) about fighter jets and Mercedes. :-)

I'll let you in on a secret... Did you know that God created the world with a computer? Seriously! Here's the log files of his creation:
The genesis.log from God's Unix System

Have fun! Peace!




Sorry if this sounds confusing. I really need some help here. I've only had Windows 7 installed for a few weeks now, but I've already got most of my software and games installed and working. Based on some bad advice on another forum, trying to solve a problem with getting a game to run, I uninstalled all versions of Microsoft Visual C++. According to the event viewer, here are the versions that were installed, and each of them were listed separately under "uninstall a program" in control panel:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable. Product Version: 8.0.56336
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable. Product Version: 8.0.50727.42
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable. Product Version: 8.0.59193

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.17. Product Version: 9.0.30729.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.4148. Product Version: 9.0.30729.4148
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.21022. Product Version: 9.0.21022

I realize now that that was stupid, and I need all these different versions for different programs to run. So I downloaded the 2005, 2005 SP1, 2005 ATL update, 2008, and 2008 SP1 versions directly from Microsoft, and installed them, starting with 2005, then the 2005 sp1, then the ATL update. But what I noticed was happening was that the updates were overwriting each other, so as I was checking the "uninstall a program" to see how it was showing up after each update, instead of them showing up individually like they were originally, now it was only showing 1 version of 2005 and 1 version of 2008, with each update just changing the version number, instead of keeping older versions.

From what I've read, there is a winsxs folder that should be keeping all the different versions installed separately, so the different versions of the files will not be overwritten by updates, to keep compatibility with other programs that may need older versions of the files. So isn't this going to be a problem if the updates are just overwriting each other now that I'm installing them separately?

To try it a different way, I uninstalled them again, and installed just the 2005 and 2008 first version, and then did a Windows Update. It then said there were 2 critical updates, 1 for the 2005 SP1 and 1 for the 2008 SP1. Except I hadn't installed the SP1 updates yet, just the first releases of each. Well I let it update itself, and then I checked back to see what was showing up now. Here is what was listed after the windows update:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 ATL Update kb973923 - x86 8.0.50727.4053
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 ATL Update kb973924 - x86 9.0.30729.4148
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.21022

But that's not what was there before. How can I get these other versions to install and show up without overwriting existing versions? I was hoping Windows Update would install all available versions. Maybe some of the software I've installed came with some of the versions, but I have no idea what software came with what versions. I'm afraid now that some of my software will be relying on older versions that have been removed, but I won't know until I try running every program. Is there some way to find out what software is relying on what versions? Is that information kept somewhere in the winsxs folder maybe? If I knew what software would be affected, I'd just reinstall that software. But I have loads of small programs that I dread reinstalling all over again.

So what can I do now to get things back the way they were? I've tried system restore twice, and both times it failed and said no settings were changed. I just spent 3 weeks installing everything, there must be a way to get these back without starting from scratch?
