"There was a problem sending the command to the program"

I keep getting "there was a problem sending the command to the program" when I try to open an MS Office file or just a picture to be viewed in the windows picture thing. After the first time trying to open a file, I can open any file fine for a while, but the error tends to occur after a reboot and during the first time running the program(Word/Excel/etc.) Strangely, this does not happen consistently. Sometimes the error pops up, sometimes it doesn't. I've already reinstalled Office 07 to no avail, and I am running 7 Pro 64bit. Thanks for your help

SOURCE: Toshiba M115-3094 start up problems

Okay it sounds like you need to reinstall windows. However, doing so will erase everything on your hard drive. So we need to get that data off your hard drive. You can do this either by purchasing an internal hard drive to usb cable and hooking it up to another computer or by booting with a bootable linux distro, connecting a flash drive and copying the info over that way. Once you have the data safe, you can try booting from your XP disc and try the repair option; this will remove the windows files and leave your data in tact but you should really back it up first.

Also you may want to run a chkdsk on the drive; that may help solve the problem.

SOURCE: Keep losing internet connection

Recommendation: If you can switch from the 3rd party wireless utility to the Windows utility. There should be a check box under the properties that says, "Let Windows manage my connection." Also turn off any power management that stops your drives, suspends the machine, etc. When doing WEP, use the actual key, not your password. i.e. the one that looks like "aaff996753bc" not "rosebud".

Reason: Windows wireless starts before you even log in and loads as a service, it runs whether your logged in or not, sleep mode, etc. 3rd party utilities...especially my personal bane of all wireless devices "Netgear" load as applications. That means they don't initialize until after log in and they can be suspended completely or prioritized by power management and resource management utilities when the machine is idle. As for the key thing... WEP translation with Linksys especially can be a little funny with some wireless so I use the key itself which always works.

SOURCE: toshiba Satellite a210 keeps freezing up.

barb, I have an A75 satellite and have similar problems. I have upgraded ram (corsair 2G) and also new hard drive now running XP pro. From what I have observed, the computer runs without problems anytime I use an external keyboard & mouse and freezes if I do not. While it doesn't freeze every time, it does it regularly, somewhere around 10% of the time. I have done the following; used it while wearing different footwear, shoes, tennis shoes, socks etc and noticed it freezes when I wear either tennis shoes or acrylic / nylon socks, it does NOT freeze when I am barefoot or have good shoes on, or when I use it on hard floors off of carpeted areas. I am certain my problem is related to static discharge and a poorly grounded front cover as the unit locks up the instant I rest my wrist on the front to start typing etc. This is a fairly well known problem with the satellite series and there are a number of fixes ranging from having the inside of the cover modified to be better grounded all the way up to replacing the cover with a newer type which apparently addresses the issue. Good luck.

SOURCE: internet cuts out

First off, try running disk cleanup to clear your temp files and browser cache. That may help.
If you check your network connection when this error occurs, and it is connected, this could be a sign of what's called a browser hijack, a sort of malware infection. There are some things that install on your system and prevent you from accessing sites that they deem harmful (to themselves)..
For example, can you go to windows update and update your system? Is your antivirus updating successfully?
If not, I recommend you go to www.malwarebytes.com and download their free Anti-malware software, update it and run a scan of your system. Allow it to fix anything it detects.
It will automatically save a logfile.
Then run a full scan of your system with an updated AntiVirus scanner.
You might wish to consult this link as well, if you have any further problems...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

PROBLEM OPENING MS WORD: This might be a backwards


Uncle, you found a great workaround to fix this problem. If you would like a more permement solution, try the one below. I found this answer here: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/136470-Word-2007-ERROR-quot-There-was-a-problem-sending-the-command-to-the-program-quot

It sounds as though the DDE setting for the .doc and/or .docx extensions are broken.

You might want to "re-register" Word's file extensions, which simply involves using the /r startup switch. This article provides more than anyone really needs to know: How to use startup command line switches to start Word 2010, Word 2007, Word 2003, Word 2002, and Word 2000. In brief:

Close Word
Start > Run > winword.exe /r {ENTER}

Does that fix it?

If you want to try manual surgery and are running Windows XP, you can view/edit the setting from Windows Explorer or My Computer: Tools > Folder Options > File Types tab > [appropriate extension] > select open then edit or modify. If you uncheck the "Use DDE" box and save, then the registry should be updated.

Help! Can't program remote!


from the book: this is for the HRMC-5 may be the same.
Code Scan if you don't know the code.

Keep remote aimed at the device you want to control. during the programing, the device will send out a "power" command for the device being programmed.

While holding down the device key(i.e., TV) that you are programming, press the "Mute key for one full second. then release the keys. the device key should light up and stay lit. if not, repeat the process.

repeatidly tap the channel up key to step through the codes, sending out the "power command". may take some time, many codes. when device shuts off, you have found the code. If you inadvertantly went past the code, that responded, you can press the channel down key to go back. press the "power key to verify you havent missed the code. In order to lock in the code, press the device key again. the remote will remember the code till you re program it.

Net Command Does not work


Go to net command menu click on the AVR Learn icon.
Now you can program 4 different functions (inputs) from another remote. I programed 4 different source settings from my A/V receiver. And you label each input appropiately. Such as DVD, SAT, CAB, ANT.....

Now go back to net command and just to the right of previous Learn Icon you input the name of the source you just programmed for which ever device it is currently watching.

Net command is very confusing but works great once you figure it out. Hope this helps.

Merging Projects in Suretrack 3.0


Have you tried having them directly send a back file, .prx? or do a copy and send you the multiple files. I'm not sure why the mail function isn't working, but if I remember right the mail function just initiates an email and attaches a .prx file or something similar that its trying to send. Many of the fuctions like that in the older scheduling softwares were ahead of their time and didn't work well.
