    The problem that I have is that I am trying to set up my 3G card on this system, but it doesn't want to do anything when I click on the setup icon. I have read various comments on various forums with a lot of people having the same problem, and the support desk where I bought the computer from couldn't help me, just told me to convert it to a Windows machine. I have seen on some of these forums that you need to put in a command somewhere, but being completely new to Linux, I don't have a clue what to do. Please can you help?

Your Netbook uses Fedora 6 for an operating system which is a version of linus. *nix operating systems do not use file extensions to determine if a file is executable or not. It uses information stored in the file header. Most likely this .exe you want to execute is not a *nix executable file but a Windows executable instead.

Why is this file SSCKbdHk.exe appearing to cause problems?


I can't tell you what to do for your problem, however you have to decide what to do. Check the following information from http://www.file.net/process/ssckbdhk.exe.html

What is SSCKbdHk.exe?
SSCKbdHk.exe is a executable file (a program) within Windows. The filename extension .exe denotes an executable file. You should only run executable files from publishers you trust, because executable files can potentially change your computer settings or harm your computer. The free file information forum can help you determine if SSCKbdHk.exe is a virus, trojan, spyware, or adware that you can remove, or a file belonging to a Windows system or to an application you can trust.

SSCKbdHk.exe file informatiion.
The process known as SSCKbdHk belongs to software Samsung Support Center by SAMSUNG Electronics (www.samsung.com).
Description: SSCKbdHk.exe is not essential for Windows and will often cause problems. The file SSCKbdHk.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files".

We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security. This was one of the Top Download Picks of The Washington Post and PC World.

How to Reduce Spreading of Virus on the Hard Drive


<b><u>An insight in VIRUS INFECTION and VIRUS SPREADING</u></b><br /> <br /> In today's computing spreading of virus is fast and very common.<br /> Even with an up to dated antivirus software the spreading of the virus infection is fast.<br /> This is because, we are not aware of how the virus spreads in our system.<br /> Once we know how the virus infects and spreads in our system then we will definitely reduce the risk, time and money spent.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Here is a short insight about viruses:</u></b><br /> <br /> 1) Virus is a small program code enabling it to to mingle or merge with other program codes.<br /> <br /> 2) The Virus Program Code is written such that it deletes data, corrupts data, steals data send it to the maker of the code, etc.<br /> <br /> 3) The virus cannot run on its own. It has to be executed just like other exe program files. That is why the autorun.inf file is required.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Now for an insight how we get infected:</u></b><br /> <br /> 1) Thorugh the internet: Usually when we browse any web site files are downloaded from the web server to our temporary internet folder(in windows) Then our Browser software reads the files and executes them in the browser window for us to view the web site.( If you are a website Designer you would understand this for others get an insight how internet browsers work), So when we are in the internet Virus files attach themself to the downloading files and enter our system in the temporary folder, From here they are executed by our browser software or when any program accesses the temporary folder.<br /> <br /> 2) Another one is we download a lot of data from the internet, we should be careful on what we are downloading because if the data downloaded is infected with virus then we are downloading the virus to our system along with the data, Don't download the data unless you are sure you could trust the maker of the data, program,etc.<br /> <br /> 3) From other medias like Flash Drive, CD's, DVD,s,etc.:<br /> We copy a lot of data to our computer from our friends and relatives, so if the data is already infected with virus we copy the virus to our system also, when we run os use the data the virus is executed along with it.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Now for an insight how Virus Spreads:</u></b><br /> <b></b> <br /> Just like any other program code the virus code has to be executed.<br /> That is why the virus merges with other exe's which are executable and not with the data file.<br /> <br /> For eg: a file with .avi, .dat, .3gp, etc. all these files are data files they dont execute, but they are used by exe files like wmplayer.exe, winamp.exe, vlplayer.exe, etc. The .avi .dat .3gp files are data files, the wmplayer.exe, winamp.exe vlplayer.exe are program files. Thus mostly exe program file get infected with virus.<br /> <br /> Usually when our system gets infected and any antivirus program cleans our system you can notice that the windows media player or winamp player or vlc media player does'nt work because it is removed or deleted by the antivirus for virus infection but the songs or video you saved is unharmed in the harddisk.<br /> <br /> That is why the virus code hangs or merges or infects mostly exe program files, So that it is executed along with the program file.<br /> <br /> So when you run an infected windows media player to play a song the virus code is also run along with the windows media player. Thus the virus is run again and again.<br /> <br /> There are hundreds of program files in the os for doing various tasks.<br /> we are going to look into just one program which the virus uses to spread itself in our system.<br /> <br /> The Program is non other than explorer.exe in windows. This program is needed to view or browse the data files stored in the hard disk.<br /> When we double click the My Computer Icon on the desktop the explorer.exe is executed which show you a window on your screen with the hard disk drives and cd dvd drives in the windows Now you can imagine how frequently you use the explorer.exe. You use it to view any data on the computer, even our desktop uses explorer.exe. This program is executed right when windows logs us on.<br /> <br /> When this program file is infected, it keeps on executing the virus each time we use the program. by this method the virus spreads fast to every parts of the hard disk.<br /> <br /> Likely there is a method to avoid executing the virus along with the explorer.exe each time we use it.<br /> <br /> When we double click any icon or object on our windows screen we execute the default command in the right click menu. Usually it is the Run Command. for eg: when you double click word the word.exe runs, similarly when we double click the my computer icon the default right menu option is <b>Open</b> which run the explorer.exe program.<br /> <br /> Instead of using this method to view files and data in our system we could use an alternate method which is using the explorer menu option when we right click my computer or right click the windows start button or in fact the explorer option is there whenever you right click any object on the screen.<br /> <br /> By using this explorer option in the right click you get a window with two panes one to the left and one to the right. In the left pane you have the directory structure showing all the directories and folders in our hard disk and in the right pane the content of the directory or folder selected in the left pane.<br /> <br /> Thus in this process we dont execute any code or program command when viewing the data in our hard disk. because we do not execute the explorer.exe more than once.<br /> <br /> So, Imagine how we reduce the spreading of virus by using this method.<br /> <br /> Say you have a file saved in your hard disk in this location<br /> <br /> <b>C:\data\monday\20-11-2010\office\media\todaysjob.doc</b><br /> <br /> If you want to open the file with word we will double click my computer, then double click C Drive, then Double Click data folder,then double click monday folder, then double click 20-11-2010 folder, then double click till you come to the media folder then you double click the todaysjob.doc which will execute the word.exe program which reads the data in the todaysjob.doc file and displays the content as required. In this process see how many time you will execute the virus, You will run the virus Seven Times.<br /> <br /> In our Alternate method You will run the Explorer.exe only once, Then on you just navigate to the media folder then double click the todaysjob.doc file in the right panel. So you execute the virus only once. <br /> <br /> Hence you reduce the spreading of VIRUS to a great extend.<br /> <br /> Good Luck, If there are any mistake please bare with me, I am not a good writer. If you have any Question Keep Me Posted.

How to create an exe book


If you've created your own ebook, its probably in PDF format which is great but submitting your PDF to ebook directories is not an easy task and You may be asked for additional file formats. Here comes the exe book. It is an executable file for windows containing your ebook.

How to create it?

1. As You have the ebook content in a format that can be edited, all you need is to copy and paste to a blank HTML page created with notepad or any web editor. Now you have your ebook as a HTML document which is not protected and can be copied and changed by anyone. So you need to protect your file from editing and changing (your contents).

2. Here comes the EXE conversion. As the executable file is much secure holder for your ebook content, you have to convert the HTML into an executable aplication (EXE file). There are many software for this, but I preffer freeware and WebSiteZip Packer from Spadix is the perfect tool for this job. With WSZ you load the HTML page with your book content, set the parameters such as window size, toolbars, security options (password and expiration date) and build exe. Built in wizard will guide you thru the process and you'll have your own exe book in minutes.

What is a binary file


A binary file is commonly referred to as a windows executable file.
These files are denoted by the .exe trailing the end of the file name.

These two terms "binary" and "executable" can be used interchangeably in this scenario.

An .exe file or executable is a file that launches a program or installation of a program... thusly called executable, as it executes a command.

Hope this helps!

Cheers!

I refurbish cptrs for needy & received a Dell PPL or CPiA laptop. Went to Dell and downloaded *.app driver files but don't know how to make *.app work as a driver. Ideas? Oh- Can't get Dell techs to...


It is very simple. Usually drivers comes in the .ZIP, .RAR, .MSI or .EXE formats. Download the drivers in any folder. Then download the winrar software and extract the program at another place. You will find setup.exe or install.exe or similar file to execute. Execute the file and i will do everything automatically. But this will work only with any version of microsoft windows. For MSI or EXE files, just douuble click on their icon and they will do it for you. :-) (ehteshamhusain@gmail.com)

Error Message 'F:\ setup.exe is not a valid win32 application'


This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
  1. File is corrupt, bad, or missing.
  2. File is not designed for your version of Windows.
  3. File is a virus, worm, or other malware file.
  4. Hardware incompatibility.
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.
