''mmc.exe Bad Image'' Windows 7


have you tried running sfc/scannow from a command prompt (run as administrator- when you type in "cmd" at the search button and right click on cmd.exe, and select run as administrator) Be sure to have your Windows7 CD in the drive when you run the check.

If after that it does not work, reinstall windows 7.

i forgot my username password for a toshiba laptop running vista help please


Protocol questions - for more vivid mental image.
The logon screen, is it a 'classic logon' screen? IE do you get the option to enter a username and password or do you click an icon and then are prompted for a password?

Scenario 1
If not, you can use the logon 'panic button' = use Ctrl+Alt+Del trick {Ctrl+Alt+Del pressed twice} to make sure you get two fields to fill so that you log on as the Administrator. IE username = Administrator
password = {leave blank} Press enter and if you gain access, proceed to the Control panel or run | compmgmt.msc | local users and groups. From users, rightclick your account and then set password. Set the password, remember it, logoff and then logon with your credentials.

Scenario 2
Please take note this tip (if it works) is intended to regain a forgotten Vista Administrator password. It is not intended to illegally hack into a Vista system that’s not owned by you.

  1. Reboot the Windows Vista and boot up with Windows Vista installation DVD.
    vista-install-01.jpg
  2. While the Windows Vista installation interface pops up, click the Repair You Computer link at the bottom-left corner.
  3. Next, the System Recovery Options dialog box appears. There are few options but we want the Command Prompt option. Click on this option now.
  4. In the Vista Command Prompt, type mmc.exe and press the ENTER key to bring up the Microsoft Management Console.
  5. Click on the File menu, select Add / Remove Snap-in option, locate and select the Local Users and Groups on the left panel, and click Add button to add it to the right panel.
  6. Now, the Choose Target Machine dialog box pop up. Ignore this by clicking the Finish button
  7. Click OK button and return to the MMC window (the first window that showed when you entered mmc.exe). In the left panel, double-click Local Users and Group that was added in step 5. Click on User folder, locate and right-click the target Vista logon account whose password you need to set.
Guess you should know what to do now. Select the Set Password from the right-click menu to set a new password / reset old password.

Scenario 3
There is software out there than can do all the leg work for you like - NT & registry editor. Careful though. Can render your system useless if you don't know how to use them.

MMC CANNOT CREATE A NODE MANAGER MAKE SURE THE FILE Mmcndmgr dll


I'm running windows 2000 and can't find that file.
Do a search for the file Mmcndmgr.dll and make a note of where it is on your system.

Then open a command prompt and use the following command to re-register it. replace the pathtofile with the location from the search.
regsvr32 c:\pathtofile\Mmcndmgr.dll

If you can't find the file then it may have been accidentally deleted.
Do a google on the file name and you should be able to find lots of information on it.

Hope this helps
