I would be worried about that started the cmd command. That is the command to open the old style DOS window. Usually some updates or installation programs might use the cmd window but might also be used by virus and malware installation. Does this happen every time you start the computer or just once? If it is an every time thing you need to check your start up directory and run "msconfig" to locate the program that is causing this. It would be wise to get a professional to help you. But first thing to do is reboot and run a virus scan.

    I've heard something about a cmd virus this morning. What I would recommend is



    You should try an online scan like Microsoft's http://www.microsoft.com/protect/product...

    If it finds a virus you can download repairs for just that virus from places like http://www.symantec.com/business/securit... Once you get the virus out your software may work.

    Good things on the internet don't cost money. Go download and install Spybot S&D. It's great for spyware and malware because it puts a list of the bad places in your restricted site zones so there's no way you get spybots and malware from them. Then go download and install anti-virus software from http://www.avg.com

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.

WMI Has encountered a problem and needs to close


Symptom
When you attempt to start the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service, you may receive the following error message, and the service does not start:
Could not start the windows management instrumentation service on local computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

Resolution
First, verify the number of dependencies attached to the WMI service. This can be viewed by running the following command from Start, Run:
CMD /K SC QC WINMGMT

The output should exactly as given below.
[SC] GetServiceConfig SUCCESS
SERVICE_NAME: winmgmt
TYPE : 20 WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
ERROR_CONTROL : 0 IGNORE
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
LOAD_ORDER_GROUP :
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : Windows Management Instrumentation
DEPENDENCIES : RPCSS
SERVICE_START_NAME : LocalSystem
*See attachment*

The only dependency is the RPCSS service, and it does run by default whenever you start Windows. If you have any other dependencies listed, then it may be the causing the problem. To remove the additional Dependencies, follow this:

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Before you modify the registry, backup the registry key by exporting the corresponding branch. Also, see here to learn how to perform a complete registry backup.

Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
Navigate to the following location
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\winmgmt
Double-click DependOnService, and set it's Value data to RPCSS

Close Regedit and restart Windows

If this fails, you will need to do a repair installation..


Hope this will be helpfull

Thanks & Regards

Yahoo Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close


it sounds like you have a corrupted operating system or an infection, make sure you download your windows updates, do a full virus scan with counterspy from www.counterspy.com download www.ccleaner.com make sure it's ccleaner, also re download messenger from http://messenger.yahoo.com the current version should be 9.0.0.2112 if that doesn't help hold windows key then push r type in chkdsk c:/f/r on xp, if vista type cmd into the search bar right click it and run as administrator then type chkdsk c:/f/r that will fix the corruption on your hard drive for the most part. you'll probably still need to re download messenger again.
