Hi guys, my notebook 0xc00000e9 this problem and how I want to save or return all my program really work? I need to go back but I do not want to format? need to save my back as folders? I hope you...


This error indicates a corrupt registry. Luckily, when Windows is installed, a pristine copy of the registry hives is also installed and it remains untouched...replacing your corrupt registry hives with these ones will allow you to boot your operating system again. You may have to reinstall a few programs and drivers but all of your data will remain intact and you really won't lose anything. I will describe the process to you. I will also include instructions on how to back up the current registry in case you want to go back to it for any reason.

First you will need to locate the Windows install disc. If you don't have one you can borrow one as you will not need a key to perform the steps.

Put in the disc and perform the steps necessary to get your computer to boot to it.

Once you are the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press R to go into the Recovery Console.

Enter the administrator password when prompted

Tell the program what installation of Windows you would like to recover.

Now for the commands

md tmp (this creates a directory labeled tmp)

These 5 commands will make a copy of your current registry hives and back them up to the tmp directory. Type these in first. ENSURE you back them all up.

copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

These 5 commands will delete the current, corrupt registry hives.

delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
delete c:\windows\system32\config\software
delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam
delete c:\windows\system32\config\security
delete c:\windows\system32\config\default

These 5 commands will copy the pristine, uncorrupted hives into your system.

copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system
copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software
copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam
copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security
copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default


Once you have entered your last command type exit to leave the recovery console and your computer should restart.

If you want to put the old registry back for any reason, simply follow the same steps but instead delete the current registry and replace it with the files that you placed in the tmp directory. Ensure that you remove the .bak extension from the file when you copy them over.

Really, other than this, the only other known working option is to reformat your computer.

Hope this helps.

Advrcntr2.dll is missing


CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

To install advrcntr2.dll, follow these instructions:

  • Open the zip-file you downloaded from DLL-files.com.
    • Extract the .dll-file to a location on your computer. We recommend you to unzip the file to the directory of the program that is requesting the file. If that doesn't work, you will have to extract the file to your system directory. By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP, Vista, 7).
    • Make sure overwrite any existing files (but make a backup copy of the original file).
    • Reboot your computer.
    • If the problem still occurs, try the following:
      • 1. Press Start and select Run.
      • 2. Type CMD and press Enter (or if you use Windows ME, type COMMAND).
      • 3. Type regsvr32 "filename".dll and press Enter.

I loaded Check-it Fastmove on a laptop running windows XP. It will not start up and gives the following message: Could not start communication service. It worked fine on my old Desktop running windows XP.


I struggled with this same problem a few years back. I tried a couple of different compatibility modes for the fastmove.exe file and finally settled on Windows 98/Windows ME mode. When you right click on fastmove.exe and enable this mode in properties, you still aren't all the way there. When you try to run fastmove in this mode you will get another error message. Something about how it could not find a file called paralnk.vxd (actually the error message mispells the file name as paralink.vxd).

Well this file is only necessary for parallel port connections which I don't think anyone uses anymore (everyone should be using USB to sync). So I got to thinking that all the Fastmove program needed to see was a dummy file called "paralnk.vxd." And I was right. So this is what you need to do.

1. Find "fastmove.exe" in your program files, right click on it, click on properties, go to compatibility tab, enable "Windows 98/Windows ME" compatibility mode.

2. Go to your Windows\system32 folder and right click on some empty space. A dialogue box comes up. Mouse over "New" then click on "Text Document." After you have created the new text document, rename it to "paralink.vxd." You will get a warning message about changing the filetype from txt to vxd, but ignore it.

It doesn't matter that the new paralink.vxd is just a dummy text file. Fastmove doesnt use the file for anything. It just wants to see that it is there.

And that is how you get fastmove working on XP. It also works in Vista.

I sure wish they would update this program, but it got discontinued. Best sync program I ever used. I wish I knew who the actually developer was. I would contact them and see if they wanted to update it on an open source project.

If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in step five, and then create a text file called "Regcopy1.txt" (for example). To use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console: batch regcopy1.txtWith the batch command in Recovery Console, you can process all the commands in a text file sequentially. When you use the batch command, you do not have to manually type as many commands. Part two loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); To complete the procedure described in this section, you must be logged on as an administrator, or an administrative user (a user who has an account in the Administrators group).

  10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp folder:
    • _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM

    • Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM
These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. .

Part Three loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:
  1. Start Recovery Console.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: del c:\windows\system32\config\sam

DVD X Copy Install Problem - Unable to find path


What you would need to do is go to www.driverguide.com and search for pcouffin.vxd and copy it to c:\windows\system32\iosybsys. Then it should install fine.
Good luck!

The following file is missing or corrupted; C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32.VXD type the name of the windows loader (e. g., C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32.VXD)


That is a special file, created during Windows installation. Every computer uses a different VMM32.VXD file, so you can't simply copy one from another system and expect it to work.

If you can't find that file by searching the system in DOS, you could wipe the drive and reinstall Windows again, or do a repair install, installing Windows on top of itself. That should force the creation of a new VMM32.VXD file, and that problem should be history.

If you DO find the file somewhere on the HDD through a DOS search, copy it into the Windows\System folder, then reboot the system.
