Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I need a Windows98 command.com file download. I overwrote the file with a Windows ME command.com file and now the computer will not start. Perhaps I need an emergency bootup disk to solve the problem. Also, before this happened, I was trying to fix the screen display (it gives me crazy technicolor letters all over the screen once the welcome window changes. So I probably caught a virus/trojan. If I can get my D: drive to work, I can use my IOLO virus killer to straighten things out. I do not mind reformatting the hard drive if that is what it will take. But I don't have a copy of my ancient Windows98 program disk. I would like to fix this computer so that I can donate it. Thanks! TEV

Microsoft updates do not install


You have not said which OS you are using so; from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

When you try to install Windows updates from the Windows Update Web site, the Microsoft Update Web site, or by using Automatic Update, you receive a message that the update is not installed successfully. Additionally, the update is not displayed in the update history.

You may experience this issue in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1 You try to install updates after repair a Windows XP installation by using the Windows XP CD.
Scenario 2 You perform the following operations before you try to install Windows updates:

You perform a new installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
You visit the Windows Update Web site, or the Microsoft Update Web site.
Note When you visit the update Web site, the latest version of Windows Update software will be installed in your computer.
You install Windows XP Service Pack (SP3) without a restart.
You try to install Windows updates after the install of Windows XP SP3.

Then cause ;

This issue occurs because the Wups2.dll file that is included in the latest version of Windows Update is not installed correctly.

For scenario 1, the registry entries that correspond to the Wups2.dll file are missing after the repair install of Windows XP. The release version of Windows XP does not contain the Windows Update software.

For scenario 2, the registry entries that correspond to Windows Update are changed back to the Windows XP SP2 version if you did not restart the computer before you install Windows XP SP3. The registry entries for the Wups2.dll file are changed to pointing to the Wups.dll file that is included in the release version of Windows XP SP2.
To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods;

Method 1: Download and install the Windows Update Agent,
For an x86-based computer; http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

For an x64-based computer http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe

Method 2: Register the Wups2.dll file,

To have MS register the Wups2.dll file in Windows for you, go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144#FixItForMeAlways.

If you prefer to fix this problem yourself,

To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Open the Command Prompt window. To do this, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:

a. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll

Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll

b. Click OK if you receive a verification message.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:

4. Exit the Command Prompt window. To do this, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Tip

Batch downloading multiple web pages


Looking for a way to download multiple web pages, images or other files from web sites without using a browser?

First, download and install URL2File Windows Application, which is the program we'll be using in this example (URL2File Windows Application is a product of Chami.com). URL2File can retrieve and save the content of a given World Wide Web URL to a local file. So, to retrieve the web page at http://www.chami.com/tips/ and save it to a local file named tips.htm, run the following command from a Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box:URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/ tips.htmNote the format of the above command: URL2File followed by the web page/file address and the name of the file that you want to save the content as.The next step is to create a batch file that can call URL2File for eachfile you need to download. A Windows batch file is a text file with alist of commands, usually with the .BAT extension.Let's assume that there are three files named file1.zip, file2.zip and file3.zip at http://www.chami.com/tips/ that you need to download. To create a batch file to download above files:
  • Open Windows Notepad
  • Enter following three commands into the blank notepad (one command per file to be downloaded):URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file1.zip file1.zip
    URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file2.zip file2.zip
    URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file3.zip file3.zip
  • Save the notepad file with a name of your choice followed by .BAT ("download.bat" for example)
Now run "download.bat" from your Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box by typing:downloadand hitting ENTER. The newlycreated batch file will call URL2File three times for each of the threefiles and sequentially download them for you. To download other files,simply modify the batch file and run it again.

When I use my phone on my curve 8300 it shuts down.


try a new battery if that does not work then try reflashing the OS on the phone.

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.
Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

Name of Command Interpreter


Do you have a autoexec.bat on the root directory on you server that has a path to C:\windows in it?

If it is there then reinstall the operating system. It has crashed. It's an old error message that was used when DOS was needed to be installed before loading windows.
