So how can I restore my v b script host on my netbook with windows 7 ?


Fix Windows Script Host If you are experiencing script host issues, you might notice error messages such as "Library not registered." Script host issues occur when scripting components do not exist in the Windows registry, according to Microsoft. Your version of Windows determines how the missing scripting components affect your system. You can repair script host problems by using your PC's native features.
Press the "Windows" key. Type "cmd" in the dialog box and press "Enter." This will open the Command Prompt. Type the following commands at the prompt one at a time and press "Enter:" regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\vbscript.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\jscript.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\dispex.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrobj.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrrun.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\wshext.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\wshom.ocx Exit the Command Prompt. b> Register Components on 64-bit Systems b> Press the "Windows" key. Type "cmd" in the dialog box and press "Enter." This will open the Command Prompt. Type the following commands at the prompt one at a time and press "Enter:" %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\vbscript.dll %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\jscript.dll %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\dispex.dll %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrobj.dll %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrrun.dll %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\wshext.dll %systemroot%\system32\regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\wshom.ocx Exit the Command Prompt.
Enable Windows Script Host b> Windows Script Host is an administration tool by Microsoft that creates an environment for hosting scripts. According to Microsoft, Script Host will manage security and invoke the proper script engine. Script Host comes standard on all Windows operating system versions 98 and later. Therefore, you can easily enable Script Host on your computer. Go to the Windows Desktop. Click on the "Start" button. Select "Run" from the menu of options and icons that opens. Type the word "regedit" into the text box of the Run window and then click "OK." The Registry Editor window will appear. Select "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings" from the folders on the left of the Registry Editor window. Double click on "Enabled" in the window pane to the right. Set the Value to 1. Return to the folders list in the Registry Editor. Select the folder "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings." Again double click on "Enabled" in the window pane to the right and set the value to 1. That's it, you have successfully enabled Windows Script Host.

Starting yesterday when i restarted my computer after editing my group police i find my computer is no longer displaying a task bar so i restart explorer and it seems as if it is running in classic shell...


What OS are you running?

Have you tried system restore? or....

Do you have access to the registry editor? (type "REGEDIT" into the run box)

if so then go to this key :
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies]

there you should see settings for windows explorer and the taskbar.. (a number "0" = setting disabled and a number "1" = setting enabled) just look for the settings related to the taskbar
the settings you are looking for are probably these:

"NoSetTaskbar=1," REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1) "
"NoTrayContextMenu REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1)."

Just right click the setting and chose "modify" and change the "1" to a "0" or "delete" the key all together

(I am running windows 7 and all three subkeys under "policies" : EXPLORER , MOBILITY CENTER AND SYSTEM are all empty with no policies set)
better no policy then the wrong policy...lol


if you do not have access to registry then "system restore" option is best .. (if you have somehow edited the group policy preventing you from running system restore then try booting into safe mode and going to the Hidden Administrator account.. and running "system restore" from there... hopefully since that account is usually not used it will hopefully have all of the group policy settings still at their defaults and allow you to restore the system

NOTE: System restore is best option because it replaces the entire registry with a back up copy and all group policy settings are contained within the registry and will be fully restored back the way they were.

if system restore is unavailable then a manual restore operation can be done as a last resort as long as the system restore points have not been deleted... but that is a complicated process that requires putting your hard drive into another computer and manually moving the right files to the correct locations (definitely an expert task...lol).

Cant download skype, problem with toolbar, error 2738


Take a look in Event Viewer I looked in Event Viewer to find out what MSI-file that generated the error message and found:
Log Name: Application
Source: MsiInstaller
Date: 23.09.2010 21:58:26
Event ID: 1040
... ...
Description:
Beginning a Windows Installer transaction: C:\ProgramData\Skype\{D103C4BA-F905-437A-8049-DB24763BBE36}\SkypeToolbars.msi. Client Process Id: 6564.
2. Running MSIEXEC with logging options I started a "Command Promt" and used the command: "cd C:\ProgramData\Skype\{D103C4BA-F905-437A-8049-DB24763BBE36}" to navigate into the folder containing the MSI-file.
Now using the command: "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" (msiexec options: /i = Install, /lv = Log + Verbose output).
After clicking away the error message I just wrote "log.txt" in my "Command Promt" to open the log-file. Near the bottom of the log-file I found this line:
DEBUG: Error 2738: Could not access VBScript runtime for custom action
3. DEBUG: Error 2738 After a quick search at Google I found out this error indicates that the VBScript engine is not registered on the computer.

The solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 32bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "cd %windir%\system32" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
The solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 64bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "cd %windir%\syswow64" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
4. Try again... Now I tried once more to run "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" (I kept the /lv log.txt option to look for changes if the installer would fail again).
If you still get the same Error than continue to step 5.
5. Cleanup registry first, then re-reg My installation still gave me the same error, so after some more searching and reading on Google I found a solution that explained what I tried before (with the regsvr32.exe) and also an alternative step if that one should fail. The alternative step was to remove the Registry Key pointing to vbscript.dll.
The alternative solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 32bit is then:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f" and hit Enter
- Write "cd %windir%\system32" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
The alternative solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 64bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f" and hit Enter
- Write "cd %windir%\ syswow64" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
Now using the command "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" the installer started perfectly, ran all the way thru and Finished.
Conclusion This message indicates that VBScript engine is not currently registered on the Computer running the installer.
Vbscript.dll must get registered to solve the problem.

The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout cleaner to easily fix it

The taskbar disppears. I have it locked so that it should always be on top of everything else but when it goes into hibernation and it restarted it disappears.


I'm had the same problem with my system. if the 'Start' button is still visible, so you can right-click that, select 'Properties' and change the TaskBar settings.select the 'Autohide the Taskbar' and applying that change will result in the Taskbar appearing again (at least when the mouse pointer is positioned by the Taskbar).


if the above one does not work a simple solution that will work:

1. Hit CTRL+ESC to show the Start menu.
2. Right click the menu at the bottom for Properties.
3. Select the Taskbar tab.
4. Check Autohide Taskbar and click the apply button.
5. Uncheck Autohide Taskbar and click the apply button once more.

Your taskbar should reappear when you've completed these 5 steps.

Please give this a try before messing with registry or recovering your machine!

If the taskbar does not show up when you press CTRL+ESC then explorer.exe may not be running. To correct this press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC which will bring up the task manager. Click File, New. Find explorer.exe and open it.


Go into Task Manager. Find explorer.exe and end the process. Restart explorer.exe. If your taskbar magically reappears, you've found the issue. Here are some other symptoms:

After a Windows Vista-based computer has been running for an extended period of time, the desktop screen may stop updating correctly. For example, you may experience any of the following symptoms: • Parts of the screen may go black. • Parts of the screen may become transparent. • The toolbar may disappear. • The toolbar may appear at the top of the screen instead of at the bottom of the screen.
If you add the GDI Objects column for the Explorer.exe process in the Task Manager console, you see that the GDI Objects column has reached the maximal number that is defined in the GDIProcessHandleQuota registry entry.

Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

To remove do this:
1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
%Temp%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
%DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

%DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
%Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
[ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
C:\disk.txt
%System%\autorun.ini
%System%\setting.ini
%Temp%\log_[TIME AND DATE].txt


3. Delete Gphone.exe registry keys using regedit from start - run:

try this works for me
Fixing Internet Explorer Javascript Links

Sometimes in IE when you try to open links that open in new windows, they don't open. At the bottom left of the IE window you will see a yellow triangle which indicates its a Javascript problem.
  1. Start » Run » Type regsvr32 /s URLMON.dll
  2. Then do the same but change the DLL names to the following:

    scrrun.dll
    Msxml.dll
    Mshtml.dll
    Shdocvw.dll
    Browseui.dll
    Msjava.dll
    Actprxy.dll
    Jscript.dll
    Vbscript.dll
    oleaut32.dll
  3. Restart IE and your links should be fine.
  4. Alternatively you can copy this in to a text file and save it as a batch file (.bat file)

    regsvr32 /s scrrun.dll
    regsvr32 /s Msxml.dll
    regsvr32 /s Mshtml.dll
    regsvr32 /s Shdocvw.dll
    regsvr32 /s Browseui.dll
    regsvr32 /s Msjava.dll
    regsvr32 /s URLMON.dll
    regsvr32 /s Actprxy.dll
    regsvr32 /s Jscript.dll
    regsvr32 /s Vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 /s oleaut32.dll
  5. This will re-register all the DLL files. All of the above are used by IE.

Following installation of Norton 2008 all pictures viewed through internet explorer are poor quality and pixilated


Do you use ie6?
IE6 is set up to resize the images based on the Display DPI setting. You can either set the DPI to the default (Normal - 96) or remove IE6's UseHR registry key to deactivate image resizing. Here are the relevant information (from Microsoft Knowledge Base):
Image Scaling in Internet Explorer (hi-res)

How to Activate Image Scaling
Internet Explorer 6 and later automatically adjusts the scale on higher resolution systems when the DPI setting is higher than 96 DPI and the "UseHR" registry value is added to the registry. These are usually done by the manufacturers of higher resolution systems.
_registry() warn.gifWarning!!!: Using the Windows Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems requiring the re-installation of your operating system and possible loss of data. I do not and will not support problems that arise from you editing your own registry. Use the Registry Editor and my directions at your own risk. Be sure that you create a backup of your registry and be very sure that you know how to restore it. If you are not sure how to do both of these things then STOP here!! and read the directions.
Set the DPI
These are the steps for changing the DPI setting on your system.

    Right-click the Windows desktop to display the context menu.
    Click Properties on the context menu to display the Display Properties dialog.
    Click the Settings tab on the Display Properties dialog to display the Settings tab.
    Click the Advanced button on the Settings tab to display the monitor properties dialog.
    Select a DPI setting in the Display frame of the monitor properties dialog to change the DPI setting.
    Restart your system to allow the changes to take effect.
    Add the UseHR Registry Entry
    The UseHR value is added to the Main key under "Internet Explorer" as follows:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    Right Click in the right pane and select New>DWORD value and set its data to 00000001
This problem can also be caused by bad video drivers. Update your drivers from the manufacturers site.
