I need to restore my computer without disc, what should I write in command prompt?


To access the System Restore Gui from command prompt you will need to type in rstrui.exe
OR
%Windir%\System32\rstrui.exe

Other Thoughts
--------------
If you are experiencing Boot issues you will need to install a boot manager. If your system is missing a file or a file is broken, you may need to replace that file with a working version that's compatible with your OS Version.

Userinit.exe application error


Hi again:

I would suggest that you may have a virus / spyware infection that has infected this windows file.

If you can boot into SAFE Mode ( reboot the computer) and when the screen goes to the black background with white writing start pushing F8 - keep doing so until you get a screen that gives you a list of things you can do -
ie:
restart windows normally
safe mode
safe mode w/networking

use the arrow keys on the keyboard and choose to boot into safe mode.- may take a couple of minutes

once there i would suggest running virus / antispyware scans as well as running a BOOT SCAN (a type of virus scan that scans the hard drive before it gets into windows)

NOTE on running virus/spyware scans - ALWAYS QUARANTINE the file infected - DO NOT DELETE - if you delete a critical windows system file you will cause windows to completely crash and in that instance you would have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything.

If possible, try to run your computer in safe mode. Use Malware Bytes to scan and remove virus. If it won't open as an .exe, try changing it's extension.

1304 error when trying to install microsoft office student 2007


To resolve this behavior, use the following methods.
Method
: Re-Register the Windows Installer
To re-register the Windows Installer, verify the location of the Msiexec.exe file on your hard disk and in the Windows Registry, and then re-register the Windows Installer. To do so:

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.
Verify the location of the Msiexec.exe file on your hard disk. To do so:
Click Start, and then click Search.
Click All files and folders.
In the File name box, type msiexec.exe, and then click Search.
In the search results, make a note of the location of the Msiexec.exe file.

The location of the Msiexec.exe file should be similar to the following example, where Drive is the drive where Windows is installed, and %Windir% is the folder where Windows is installed:
Drive:\%Windir%\System32

An example of this is C:\Windows\System32.

Note In Microsoft Windows 98-based computers, the Msiexec.exe file is located in the Drive:\%Windir%\System folder.
On the File menu, click Close.
Verify the location of the Msiexec.exe file in the Windows Registry. To do so:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate, and then click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MSIServer

In the right pane, double-click ImagePath.
In the Edit String dialog box, make sure that the string in the Value data box contains the correct path of the Msiexec.exe file on your hard disk that you determined earlier in step 1.

For example, if the Msiexec.exe file is located in the Drive:\Windows\System32 folder on your hard disk, the correct path of the Msiexec.exe file in the Value data box is the following path, where Drive is the drive where Windows is installed:
Drive:\Windows\System32\Msiexec.exe /V


If the Value data box does not contain the correct path, make the appropriate changes to correct the path, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
Start your computer in safe mode, and then register the Msiexec.exe file. To do so:
Shut down, and then restart your computer.
Press F8 after you receive the following message:

Please select the operating system to start
On the Windows Advanced Option menu, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
If you use a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the appropriate operating system from the list that is displayed, and then press ENTER.
Log on to the computer.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type the following line, and then click OK:
msiexec /regserver

Shut down, and then restart your computer in standard mode.
If the issue persists and you still receive the error message that is described earlier in the "Symptoms" section, follow the steps in Method 2.
Method 2: Reinstall the Windows Installer
To reinstall the Windows Installer, rename the damaged Windows Installer files, and then reinstall the Windows Installer. To do so:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following line, and then press ENTER, where Drive is the drive where Windows is installed and where %Windir% is the folder where Windows is installed:
attrib -r -s -h drive:\%Windir%\system32\dllcache

For example, type
attrib -r -s -h c:\windows\\system32\dllcache

.



At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.
Restart your computer.
Update the Windows Installer files on your hard disk to the latest version. __________________

Windows xp home addition V2002 SP2 gphone.exe not found


The very first thing we do is to solve your problem about the start-up error. For your information, your operating system was corrupt that is why there is prompt error message appear in the windows start-up. The best thing here to do is to start your computer in safe mode and this can be done by pressing F8 key until a operating system menu will appear. Select Safemode and wait until you get into the User Account Login screen. Enter to your account and then restore your computer to an earlier time. Go to All Programs - Accesories - System Tools - and then select System Restore.
But if this procedure failed, the only last thing should be done is to reinstall your computer operating system. Leave comments for further assistants. okay..

Session 3 initialization failed


Ok, after countless hours searching and sleuthing for this issue, I could not find a resolution...until now. This is my first post ever on a technical forum, so be gentle to me. I will probably never reference this form, so you if this helped you, please let me know by sending me comments to my email at: cancermage@hotmail.com
Technical Symptoms: Blue Screen (BSOD) Session 3 Initialization Failed (Session3_Initialization_Failed) STOP 0x0000006F (0xc0000034) This BSOD would load for both normal and safe mode. The operating system in question was Windows XP Home SP2.
Reason: The issue occurred after I ran a virus scan using a PE boot disk that deleted the C:\windows\system32\smss.exe system file.
Resolution: By using the "dir smss*.* /s" at a DOS prompt from the PE boot disk, I was able to search the whole computer for any available files and it found a clean version in a directory. So to fix the issue I copied C:\windows\$ServicepackUninstall$\smss.exe to C:\windows\system32\ using a PE boot disk.
Acknowledgements: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/153742 , this link gave me a hint that it may be smss.exe (even though it references win2000). Upon looking at the antivirus logs, sure enough the smss.exe was found to be infected and deleted it as it could not disinfect it. I'm assuming if I did not have a virus free smss.exe file on the C: drive in another folder, I may have to pull it from a CD or find it online.
Sincerely,
