Once i downloaded and installed CA 2010 Security Suite my internet will not work. the diagnostic tool in IE says internet connection is fine but can't connect to any site. unistalled program and IE is...


you can fix this problem through this way
1. Edit the Host File (all the steps explained below) (check if you are able to connect to internet in safe mode with networking ...if not proceed to 2nd step)
2. Change Proxy Settings (if you're still unable to connect to net)
Reimage works by comparing each and every OS system files with the correct files from a web repository of 25 million Windows components. (since Reimage works by comparing with correct file, it can easily find the hiding rootkit, infact this is what a rootkit remover do......dumps a list of files from your hard disk drive and compares it with the list from the recovery console in order to find a hiding virus) This is the sole reason you can get a PC as good as new once you run Reimage, all other antivirus and antimalware programs just delete the virus....but they don't correct the damage...which results in re-infection and slow performing PC.
Reimage first scans your computer thoroughly; all the files, folders, registry keys and values, drivers, softwares, stacks and then either repair or remove those stuffs that should be there. But it's not just that it does. They have an enormous web repository of application, drivers, system objects, etc. from where they compare your PC's files and if corrupted replace it with the healthy ones.
The problem here is Security Suite virus changed the HOSTS File, or changed Proxy Settings.
1. Mend Hosts file: The HOSTS file is used to translate a host name to an IP (Internet Protocol) address without querying the DNS (Domain Name System) server. In general if you know the host name of the machine that serves the unwanted content, you can redirect it to 127.0.0.1, which is the local IP address of your machine.
For example, assume you have redirected the ad.doubleclick.net ad server to 127.0.0.1. Every time your browser tries to load an image or a flash animation from the ad.doubleclick.net ad server, it will be redirected to your machine instead.
As a result, the browser will not be able to show any content from this ad server. The same message appears when a web site is unavailable for other reasons that HOSTS file blocking. The HOSTS file is named 'hosts' and editable with any text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad.
The file generally appears at: •'C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\hosts' on Windows XP
Before editing, backup the current HOSTS file. You need to delete all the lines from this hosts file except "127.0.0.1 localhost".
The other entires you saw there need to be removed as they are malicious. (This is why IE unable to connect, because the HOSTS file block the huge list of websites...and you get a warning that "The Page cannot be displayed") After removing the entries from hosts file, please save this file and close it. Now you should be able to search on Google. If not,
2. Change Proxy Settings: Start your PC in safe mode with networking, If you can`t run the IE, then you should repair the proxy settings of Internet Explorer. Run Internet Explorer, Click Tools -> Internet Options. Select Connections Tab and click to Lan Settings button. Uncheck "Use a proxy server" box. Click OK. Click Apply. Click OK. And go to http://reimagepcrepair.com/ to run a Scan.
But one of my subscriber mailed this " But after I unchecked use a proxy server, and then ok, Apply was not an option to click. Another idea?"
So am giving you more options...
1. Run Internet Explorer, Click Tools -> Internet Options
2. Select Connections Tab and click to Lan Settings button
3. Click Advanced button to open Proxy settings. Copy and paste the following text into "Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning with:" go.trendmicro.com;pcfixeasy.blogspot.com;reimagepcrepair.com; (whatever list of web address you would like to use)
4. Click OK to save Proxy settings, then Click OK to close Lan Settings and Click OK to close Internet Explorer settings. (Now you should be able to click 'ok')
5. Download HijackThis. NOTE: before saving it onto your computer rename HijackThis.exe to iexplore.exe
6. Double click renamed iexplore.exe. Then click "Do a system scan only" button and look for similar entries in the scan results as shown below:
R1 – HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=127.0.0.1
O4 – HKLM\..\Run: [{RANDOM}] C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\{RANDOM}\{RANDOM}shdw.exe
O4 – HKCU\..\Run: [{RANDOM}] C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\{RANDOM}\{RANDOM}shdw.exe
7. Once you have selected all entries, close all running programs then click once on the "Fix checked" button. Close HijackThis.
8. Go to http://reimagepcrepair.com/ and run a scan

Not a valid Win32 application


Answer:File is corrupt, bad, or missing
If the file or program you're attempting to run is corrupt or missing, Windows will be unable to execute the file properly and sometimes generate this error message.
Download files
If you downloaded this file and verified it is complete and compatible with your version of Windows, delete the file and try downloading and running it again. It's possible during the download that the file became corrupted.
Finally, if the second download does not work, try downloading the file from a different webpage. It is possible that the person or company maintaining the website mistakenly uploaded a corrupt version of the file you're attempting download.
Installing a program from a CD or other disk
If you're attempting to install a program and are getting this error, verify that the CD is clean. If the CD is dirty or bad, you could get this error during the install and/or get this error after the program has been installed because it was not copied properly onto the computer.
  • Additional information about cleaning a CD can be found on our cleaning page.
Running a program from the computer
If you're running the program from a shortcut on the computer, verify that the program is still on the computer. In some cases if the program is no longer installed on the computer you may get this error.
If the hard disk drive is corrupted or bad it can also cause working programs to fail either because not all the data can be read from the hard disk drive or because the program has become corrupted while on the drive. Run scandisk and defrag on the hard disk drive to check for any potential errors.
Long file name issue
Make sure the program or file you're attempting to run does not contain the same name as the long file name directory it is contained in. For example, executing a file named "program" in the "program files" directory can cause errors in some versions of Windows.
Additionally, if you're attempting to install a program and after the install the program does not work, you may also want to try installing the program in a different directory.
Bad file
Any file can be changed or renamed to be a .exe file. If you're downloading the file, make sure the file is supposed to be a .exe file and that it's not being changed. If you're attempting to create a .exe, file make sure you're compiling the file for Windows and never just rename a file to a .exe file. For example, renaming a .bat file to a .exe file will not make the file an executable file. For a file to become an executable file it needs to either be compiled or converted through a software program designed to convert the file.
File is not designed for your version of Windows
If you're trying to run a program that is not designed for your version of Windows you may get this error. Although many older programs designed to work in older versions of Windows will work with new versions of Windows, unfortunately, not all programs will work.
  • If the program is an older MS-DOS program or early Windows program you may get this error.
  • If the program is designed for a 64-bit version of Windows and you're running it in a 32-bit version of Windows, it will not work and generate this error.
If you're attempting to run an older computer game in a new version of Windows, see document CH000587 for additional suggestions about getting older games to work in Windows.
File is a virus, worm, or other malware file
This error can be generated by a file that is a virus, worm, trojan, or other type of malware file. Often, this will be caused because the virus scanner installed in the computer will not allow the file to be installed or run. Try scanning the file to verify it is not a virus and/or infected.
If the file has been checked and is clean, it is still possible that the virus protection program and/or another program installed on the computer is causing issues during the install or execution of the program. Boot the computer into Safe Mode and try running the program; booting the computer into Safe Mode will make sure nothing is running in the background that could be causing this issue. Additional information about Safe Mode can be found on document CHSAFE.
Hardware incompatibility
If you're getting this error during the installation of a program it's also possible that the CD-ROM drive or the drive you're installing the program from is not compatible with Windows or has drivers that are not compatible with Windows.
Download the latest drivers for your CD drive or other drive through our drivers page.

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. __________________

How do you stop the registration reminders for Lexmark X5070?


Go into Safe Mode, then Explore/Windows32 directory and look for any files with "Lexmark"; usually you can figure which files are the ones, even if they are not exactly named "Lexmark". Next, go into Start, Run, type Regedit you are now in the Register. remove only what you exactly need to remove .
Dial this structure:
H_KEY LOCAL MACHINE
SOFTWARE
MICROSOFT
WINDOWS
RUN
Single-click on RUN; in the Right pane are all the programs that are loaded to run on boot; look for any references to Lexmark and delete them. At least that will stop the Lexmark drivers from loading. While you are at it, click Edit, Find, type in Lexmark and search the whole Register for Lexmark references and delete them. It will help to clean out your register a little, but be careful. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then it's really not necessary for your particular problem.

Hi     sir , i am an mba student and facing virus problem  when i am starting internet explorer message like dynamic.dll file cannot read is there i had an update version of avast profesional kindly...


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
If that doesn't work, than reinstall windows.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
