Missing Control Panel+Run Command+Active Desktop

Problems occurred after replacing a dead HP monitor with Compaq. Restoring registry helped reinstate items, but were deleted again after ad/spyware removal program. Registry restoring attempts were tried again but failed. Now, I'm unable to locate previous dated registry cab to restore to previous operable level.

Please help. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Does your computer have a systems restore option . If so try to set it to a date before these problems occured and it should fix itself....Click on start, then accessories, then system tools, then system restore. Pick a date before the problems started an restore to that point. Should do the trick.....

HI! QUESTION. HAVE YOU, OR CAN YOU RE-INSTALL WIN98 FROM CD? IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEST SOLUTION MIGHT BE TO DO A RE-INSTALL OF THE ENTIRE WIN98 FROM THE CD. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE FILES MISSING MIGHT HAVE BEEN PERMANENTLY DELETED AND IF YOU CAN LOCATE THEM ON YOUR COMPUTER, YOU MAY HAVE TO RE-INSTALL THE 98 OS TO GET BACK RUNNING. ONE THOUGHT, THIS MIGHT BE AN EXCELLENT TIME TO UPGRADE TO WIN XP,SP2 WHICH IS AN EXCELLENT PROGRAM AND HAS BETTER RESTORE FEATURES. I PERSONALLY USE XP,SP2 ON MY ONE DESKTOP MACHINE AND IT RUNS MY WIRELESS NETWORK AND HAS BEEN VERY STABLE. I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. IF YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS, PLEASE REPLY. I'LL HELP.

429 error active x


It looks like the solution is to download this file:http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8247

I found this information on this website:http://www.ehow.com/how_6018818_fix-active-error-429.html

The most recent version of this script is 5.7, not 5.6, but it should fix the problem. Also, make sure you have the most recent updates through Windows Update and Service Pack 3. Install the script first, however.

Exe. files infected xp home edition can run[exe] any remedies


Hi there,

This problem occurs when one ore more of the following conditions are true:
  • The registry values that are associated with the file name extension are corrupted or the values are missing.
  • The computer is infected with a virus.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ ) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Restart the problem computer in safe mode, and then back up the registry.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type command /c copy %Windir%\regedit.exe regedit.com, and then click OK.
  3. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  4. In Registry Editor, compare the following registry subkeys with the registry subkeys of a working computer for the file name extensions that do not open:
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.<file_name_extension>
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\<file_name_extension>file
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.<file_name_extension>\<Sub_Folder>
    If you cannot open the .com files, compare the following registry subkeys with the registry subkeys of the working computer:
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.com
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\comfile
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.com\PersistentHandler
  5. If you find any difference between the registry entries on the problem computer and on the working computer, restore the default values of the corrupted entries. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Select the registry entry that you want to change.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
    3. In the Edit String dialog box, type the value that you find on the working computer in the Value data text box, and then click OK.
If the problem persists, follow these steps:
  1. Note the CLSID number that is found in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.com\PersistentHandler registry subkey.

    Note The CLSID consists of a long set of numbers that is enclosed in braces ({ }).
  2. Compare the CLSIDs with the CLSID that is located in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\<CLSID_number> registry subkey. If these CLSIDs differ, restore the default values of the corrupted entries.
Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

Try this. Been a long time since I used a command prompt but it should work. If you can get to the boot menu use a start up floppy.

Restoring a Backup

Reboot your computer, press F8 to enter Windows Boot options. Start your computer with Command Prompt ONLY.

To restore your most recent backup.
At the command prompt type --> scanreg /restore and hit enter.

To choose a backup to restore.

Go to the \Windows\Command directory.
Run SCANREG /restore
Select which one you want to restore.

Firewall settings


This usually happens due to missing or corrupt SharedAccess reg key, which represents the Windows Firewall Service.
Resolution

Download sharedaccess.reg (for Windows XP SP2 only) and save to Desktop. Then double-click the file to merge the contents to the registry. The Services entry will be created. Restart Windows (mandatory step, otherwise the following NETSH command will display an error message).

After restarting Windows, run the following from Command Prompt (cmd.exe)

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Launch firewall applet from Control Panel, and then configure your Windows Firewall settings.

If nothing helps, as a last-resort solution (before reinstalling Windows XP Service Pack 2), give these two commands a try. Click Start, Run and type:

rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

Restart Windows, and then run this command (from Command Prompt):

NETSH FIREWALL RESET

Attempt to start Firewall applet. Start the Windows Firewall service if prompted.
