    i am a very technical computer person. I just dont know anything about autocad. That is where i need the help. Plus you are a newbie so its cool this time but that is not a good enough answer to get much done. You should provide more detail in your solutions plus provide links for the software you are recommending. If you need some yourself go to my tips and tricks for a couple but start a post in the lounge or a question for freeware. You could be amazed at the response. Thanks for trying though and gool luck

    I have ran spyware terminator and malwarebytes also scanned with sophos anti virus. Tried one registry cleaner but had to go back and replace some entries.

    Sir i apologize for implying you were new to the technical field. I just meant to this site and wanted to let you know how to try to achieve the best ratings. For this and the other mistakes you caught on my behalf the latest comment was rated better.

    I also tried to recover and audit drawings in acad but neither found any errors and formatting and starting over with a fresh install is not possible at this point

You probably hit something when removing the Malware - or didn't get all of it.

First try running some checks with e.g. SpyBot and your virus scanner.
Then run System File Checker - cmd prompt sfs /scannow

If none of this is fully satisfactory then revert to (XP ?) restore point or do a repair / reinstall of Windows.

    I am surprised that as a "a very technical computer person" you did not explain any actions you had already taken. Equally I take your point about links to possible software.

    Your level was deducible from the layout of your posting. Have you in fact performed any of the checks I described ?

    Please do not confuse "Newbie" on a forum with actual experience - in my case starting before the first PC and continuing through second line support to lead developer and infrastructure manager .

How do i fix autocad? Please help!

You can fix this problem in two ways.
First: follow these steps
- Open the Registry Editor by typing "regedit" in the Windows 8 Search charm and selecting "regedit" from the Apps section of the search results.
- Navigate to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R15.0\ACAD-1:405\AdLM\Type" registry key.
- Right-click on the registry key and click "Export."
- Choose a name to save the license registry key file as, along with a location where you want to save it, and then click the "Save" button.
But if it useless try the second way- DWG Fix Toolbox.

What stores in Jacksonville, Fl sell Autocad-2010?

The current version is AutoCad 2015.

Would suggest checking ebay. Didn't see any product right now, but there are some laptops for sale with Autocad 2010 installed. If you don't want to run off a laptop, you might be able to export the licence and then install Autocad 2010 on another computer.

AutoCad R14 to Vista - bab-Mem-Pointer error message

You are still using AutoCAD R14? If you are that might be the problem. If you are running Vista, then AutoCAD R14 might be too old of a version to run. You will probably need to upgrade to a newer version of AutoCAD. I know this isn't a solution, but I am just trying to look at it from a different point of view. You can also go to and join their discussion groups. It is free and you can post questions. You usually get a fast response with an answer that really helps. I will do a little more research and add more when I get a chance. Good luck and I hope that I helped.
