If it comes up while restoring, for rstui.exe(restore utility), it may be due to a virus infection. Scand your system and see. Run this utility in safemode. To go to safe mode, Reboot the machine and press F8 before the Windows Boot screen appear. Then go to safemode.
Do system restore from there. If the utility is corrupted what you have to do is copy rstrui.exe from another computer, paste it to system32 folder.
Copy it from an exactly similar OS version.
If you have problems, go to device manager and go to event viewer
and check the categories, System and Applications for related errors.
To get to devuce manager, Rclick on My Computer Icon and Selact Manage.
Thanks
If this solution helps you plase kindly rate this answer.

    When u boot, press F8 repetitively and get the safemode. Select Yes from the dialog box. Then go to system32 and Paste it there. Make sure u clean all the temp files Do a disk cleanup) and remove al internet temp files and temp files from there and from browsers by getting Tools->Internet Options.And make sure ur Root partitions does not contain any .bat or .com viruses. Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View->Hide protected operating systems(recommended) and remove the tick. Remove the other options tick above also. And set the options to see the Hidden files. Remember u have to be an Admin to performe these tasks. Then do OK. Then go to C:? and check whether u can see files such as boot.ini, folders such as System Volume Information. Ifu can't see anything, that means there is a virus infection. MOst probably viroot or dotnetfx.

Are you doing a Dual-Boot? With a Separate Partition on the Primary HDD? I'm a bit confused? Are you doing a install on the Primary HDD and installing over the Win XP? Did you format the HDD? Or on a second HDD?

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.

SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.

I cant format my window because when i click that will give me that ''not a valid win32 application''


Exactly what are you trying to format? Usually you cannot/don't want to, format the drive you are working on? "not a valid win32 application" usually means, that the program you are trying to run, is a DOS based program. Formatting is usually done via DOS.

Win32?whats that?


It is telling you that the file you have downloaded is invalid. It probably means it is corrupted during the download process.

I'm not sure what you are downloading but have you tried AVG free edition?
You can download it here
