    DB:3.12:My Internet Is Not Allowing Me Onto Certain Websites. 11

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the question in Microsoft Community!

    You are unable to access certain sites and get message that they are broken links.

    1. Have you tried in Internet Explorer? If yes, then what is the
    exact error message you receive in it? Also, what is the
    version of the browser?
    2. Is the issue confined only to these sites or does it occur with other sites as well?
    3. Who is the Internet Service Provider (ISP)?

    If the issue occurs with all sites, then there might be an issue with the internet connection and I would suggest you to contact the ISP.

    If the issue is confined only to some sites then I would suggest you to refer the section I
    can access some websites but not all of them in the site:

    DB:2.93:Cannot Open Certain Programs am

    Hi Pondelicious,

    Are you getting any error message or error code?

    This issue can be caused due to the following reaons:

    Windows System Files are corrupted.
    User profile is corrupted.
    Third party software conflicts.

    Let’s try the following methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to perform a SFC Scan and check if it helps.

    The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

    a. Hover the mouse to the right hand corner of the screen to get the charms bar.
    b. Type command prompt. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.
    c. Type the following command in the command prompt and press enter.
    Sfc /scannow

    d. Wait till the process completes, restart the computer and check.

    Note: While performing SFC Scan I would recommend you to make sure that there are no applications or programs running on the back ground.

    Method 2:

    I would suggest you to perform a clean boot and check if it helps.
    Clean boot will check if any third party application is causing the issue, as clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    How to troubleshoot problem by performing clean boot in Windows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: Once you are done with the troubleshooting, perform the steps in “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot “to reset computer as usual.

    Method 3:

    I would suggest you create a new user account and check if it helps.

    Create a user account will helps us to find out if the issue is with the user
    account settings or system settings.
    Keep us posted on the status of the issue.

    I ran McAfee QuickClean to address a separateproblem and it removed all my temp files including, evidently, this one (\nsd9188.tmp\Redist.msi )that seems to be key for Windows 7 Installer. As a result, I get "1706" errors, where it says it's searching
    for that file but can't find it.
    This error occurs whenever I use Windows Installer(installations seem to be failing now)or other programs try to access information from Windows Installer. For example, Roxio software came pre-installed on my computer, but now when I boot it up it tries
    to reinstall itself and gives the 1706 error, saying it can't find that file. When I cancel out of the error window, allowing the installation to fail,Roxio boots up anyway.
    I believe this all might get resolved if I reinstall Windows Installer, but I'm not certain how to do that, and I wanted to be certain this is the right course of action.

    I get the same error. Regarding connecting directly to the computer, the cardscan scanner is connected directly and it has the same problem so I am thinking that using an USB connection will not help but I have not tried it yet to confirm. I can confirm that
    both the HP 8500a and the cardscan scanner are present in devices (imaging) and I even have run the hardware troubleshooter which does not find the problem. What is Windows scanning utility? I will try that if you would direct me to it. I tried Windows Fax

    First, note that you should be concerned with all programs that
    start automatically, not just with those that go into the system tray.
    Not all auto-starting programs manifest themselves by an icon in the
    tray.
    On each program you don't want to start automatically, check its
    Options to see if it has the choice not to start (make sure you
    actually choose the option not to run it, not just a "don't show icon"
    option). Many can easily and best be stopped that way. If that doesn't
    work, run MSCONFIG from the Start | Run line, and on the Startup tab,
    uncheck the programs you don't want to start automatically.
    However, if I were you, I wouldn't do this just for the purpose of
    running the minimum number of programs. Despite what many people tell
    you, you should be concerned, not with how many of these programs
    you run, but which. Some of them can hurt performance severely, but
    others have no effect on performance.
    Don't just stop programs from running willy-nilly. What you should do
    is determine what each program is, what its value is to you, and what
    the cost in performance is of its running all the time. You can try
    internet searches and ask about specifics here.
    Once you have that information, you can make an intelligent informed
    decision about what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of.

    DB:2.75:When Installing Programs The Icons Are For A Certain Program, Not New Icons. How To Fix fj


    Hi.

    Having an issue with icons. When I install some programs: the icons are always for a certain program. They are the same, it is for a photo program called ulead Photo Explorer 8.0 SE Basic.

    Usually the icons will become the proper icons when I have turned off and on my computer a few times and when I have opened the programs a few times. I don't sit there and do that, I use my computer and it seems windows finally recognizes what is suppose
    to happen.

    Probably not malware, I'v scanned. It seems to be a glitch somewhere and certain things are not being recognized immediately like they are suppose to.

    I can post a screen shot if you would like.

    DB:2.75:When Installing Programs The Icons Are For A Certain Program, Not New Icons. How To Fix fj

    I found the problem, I think. Because it seems this icon problem has stopped.

    In the photo program I mentioned above, Photo Explorer 8.0 SE Basic, it has a photo viewer. In the photo viewer you can associate files it opens. For some reason the WMF (Windows Meta Files) can be checked. I probably left this alone, or selected them all,
    and didn't read enough in the descriptions - then I left the settings alone.

    Just posting this to close the thread and let anyone know a possible solution to future problems.

    DB:2.74:How Do I Check My Cpu And Hard Drive Temp. sf


    I have a dell dimension 8300 and I was wondering if there is any software that Im not finding that will allow me to monitor the temp. of my cpu and harddrive. Every other computer that I have owned has come with some program that allows this monitoring, even allowing you to shutdown and certain temps. Can someone help.

    DB:2.74:How Do I Check My Cpu And Hard Drive Temp. sf


    An easy way is to get two of the small Radio Shack indoor/outdoor temp gauges which are pretty accurate. Put the outdoor sensor in the proximity of the CPU and hard drive and you can get relative temp changes (take off metal clips and attach with twists or platic ties). I use two of these onefor hard drive area and one for ram area. This Lian Li twin gauge on this link can be put in a large bay suspended with hard drive adapter rails (need a glass or plexa glass cover to fit the bay and sit in front of gauge front panel). I use onesensor forCPU and the other for the GPU (VPU) as the flat sensors fit right up to the attach point where the heatsink and chip meet. You could even fabricate a top cover for the gauge and sit it on the top of the computer or desk. You can find some full bay guages, but the suspended look is unique. Tri color LED's facing out the back of the baygive the guages an erie subdued back light!

    The right place to disable the start-up items on your computer would be from System Configuration Utility.

    1. Click Start, type msconfig in the
    Start Search box, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click
    Continue.

    2. This will open the System Configuration Utility, under the start-up tab; it lists all the programs that load during startup. You can choose to disable the programs from there.

    3. Here is an article that will give you information on how to set the computer to Selective Startup:

    Press ALT +H
    Select About Internet Explorer
    This will show which version you are using

    How are the websites not recognizing IE 8? Are you unable to open web pages?

    Sometimes if you are having trouble viewing a specific website in Internet Explorer, it
    can be for one or more of the following reasons:
    · The website is designed for earlier versions of Internet Explorer.
    · A previously installed browser or add-on may interfere with other software on your computer.

    · Settings may be changed after an installation that can cause webpages not to work correctly.

    DB:2.67:Programs Keep Freezing On My Computer Or Not Opening Up At All...What Can I Do fz

    Hi Ryley101,
    Thank you for visiting Microsoft Answers!

    a)Are you getting any error message while opening any programs like Itunes?
    b) Are you facing similar issue with any other program installed in your computer?
    c) Did you make any recent changes to your computer?

    I suggest that you start the computer in "safe mode with networking" and check if the problem persists.
    To do this,
    1. Restart the computer.
    2. As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
    3. Press F8, when the boot menu appears select "safe mode with networking" option.

    If the issue does not persist in safe mode with networking, then try performing clean boot on your computer.

    Clean Boot Troubleshooting
    1. Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    User Account Control permission.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the

    password, Or click Continue.
    2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
    3. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup items check box.
    4. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.
    5. Click OK.
    6. When you are prompted, click Restart.
    7. After the computer starts, check whether the problem is resolved.

    If the issue is resolved check which third party program is causing the problem, referring the link given below:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Reset the computer to start as usual.

    After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    1. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

    2. On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.
    3. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

    For Internet Explorer issues try the methods given below.

    Method 1: Try to access the site with no add-ons.
    1) Click Start,
    2) Select All programs,
    3) Select Accessories,
    4) Select System tools,
    5) Select Internet explorer with no add-ons.
    If IE does not freeze, then disable add-ons one at a time until you find the add-on causing the problem. You can refer the following link for more information on Managing add-ons:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Internet-Explorer-add-ons-frequently-asked-questions

    Method 2: You may reset IE settings to default on your computer and check for the issue.
    1. Click Start, type “inetcpl.cpl” (without quotation marks) in the Start Search bar and press Enter to open the Internet options window.
    2. Switch to the Advanced tab.
    3. Click the "Reset Internet Explorer Settings" button.
    4. Click Reset to confirm the operation.
    5. Click Close when the resetting process has finished.
    6. Uncheck the "Enable third-party browser extensions" option in the Settings box.
    7. Click Apply, click OK.

    You can refer the following link to reset IE settings:

    DB:2.67:Microsoft Office 97 Cd For Reloading. Need 20 Digit Product Id ps


    I bought my Gateway computer in March 1997 and a Microsoft Office 97 disc came with. Gateway had already preinstalled it. So I did not have to install it. The Windows XP 2012 virus came onto my computer right before the end of 2011, about December 29.
    It compromised my windows operating system, not allowing me to open certain programs. So I took it to a local computer repair shop. They cleaned it out, but in the process deleted my Microsoft Office 97 program, among other things.

    When I insert the disc for Microsoft Office 97, it asks for a 20 digit product id number, which I do not have. So I could not proceed with the installation. I called Gateway, but they said they could not help me and referred me to Microsoftt. I called
    Microsoft and talked to a man in the Phillipines. He told me that this Microsoft Office 97 was a "legacy" product and that no help from Microsoft was available. He referred me to this site and that is why I am writing this.

    I would appreciate some help.

    DB:2.67:Microsoft Office 97 Cd For Reloading. Need 20 Digit Product Id ps

    On the sleeve or package that the Office 97 CD is stored in, look for the Product Key on a Orangish-Yellow paper sticker with black text .

    Did your computer guy do an image copy backup of your hard drive before starting the repair? You may need it.

    Try the following free tools that extract product keys from your HD to see if they support Office 97:

    fact a virus that is doing this but I cannot find it or certain that it is something else. I have also tried sfc /scannow to repair corrupt files in the command prompt with no luck. I would manually replace the .dll file from a win 7 installation disc but

    2. Start the System File Checker
    * In the Command Prompt window, type:sfc /scannow,
    * press Enter.

    The scan may take some time and windows will repair/replace any corrupt or missing files. You will be asked to insert your Vista DVD if it’s needed.
    Close the Command Prompt Window when the job is finished.
    One caveat: you need a Windows DVD to enable SFC to make more than minor repairs.

I have tried creating an exception and adding in a domain group as a parameter so that members of that group are allowed to run certain programs. This seems to have the effect of allowing anyone to run the application and not just people in the AD Group.

    Can HIPS policies be filtered on AD Groups or is it an all or nothing? I found an article stating that this was not supported in HIPS 7, but that it would be in HIPS 8. We are running HIPS 8. Is this a supported feature of HIPS8?

    Problem 2 and this one really distrubs me. Over the last week, with increasing regularity my computer will turn on and as soon as I get logged into SL it will do a hard shut down. Then I have to turn off the i/o switch, hold in the power button and then turn everything back on. No other programs, including World of Warcraft and World of Tanks is having this issue, it's only second life. I have also had one instance where while IN SL the computer did a hard shut down.

    This second problem has begun since I did the update on SL. I have, this morning removed the Firestorm viewer. However, even the new SL viewer is not allowing me to log in.

    ANY suggestions/input would be most helpful.

    Thanks. I installed a new fan about 2 months ago on the side of the computer, and just about 2 weeks ago cleaned the dust out. I've left the one side open thinking it might be a heating problem but that makes no difference. I'm kind of stumped as is my IT guy.

    BTW this is a liquid cooled system.

    Sorry to hear that.

    I understand that you have issues with opening certain programs, unable to use troubleshooter, unable to connect to internet and get error
    0x80070002. Let me know if I have misunderstood.

    You may face these issues if the operating system files are corrupted, presence of malicious content.
    I would suggest you to refer the methods mentioned below:

    Method 1: Perform a virus scan using Microsoft Safety Scanner

    Scan the computer to remove any possible malicious content.

    Note: Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means there is a potential for data loss.

    To work with the issue of using troubleshooter:
    Method 2: SFC (System File Checker) scan

    SFC scan will find any missing or incorrect system files and repairs them.
    Refer the site:
    How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

    Hello Ramlupa – Welcome to Microsoft Answers Community.

    I suggest you change your kid’s accounts to Standard Users from Administrators.

    Then go ahead and turn on Parental Controls. For the other part, every time you
    install a new program, the setup process will give you an optional option where you’re
    asked:

    Do you want to install for all the accounts or your account only.

    [x] All users.
    [x] My account only (Your username).

    Else you can move the shortcuts to the following directory:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\.

    I hope you find this information useful and if you need any further assistance,
