Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

I was able to download this zip file about a xp theme and i was able to unzip it already, but there's no executable file to istall my new theme. please help me.. thanks,...


Prepare Your Computer
  1. Because Micro$oft wants you buy everything from them, Windows XP wants theme files to be digitally signed. If they aren't then XP won't let you use the themes. You must first patch your uxthemes.dll file in your C:\Windows\System32 directory. This can be easily done using the Uxthemes Patch which you can download here. The patch supports Windows XP, SP1, SP2, XP 64 bit and Windows Server 2003. Run the patch, it will "fix" your uxtheme.dll file so you can use 3rd party visual styles. Disregard any warnings about files being changed, that is what we want to do. After you run the patch reboot your computer. Note: We recommend you create a restore point before running the patch just for good measure. We did not author this file we have used it our selves with no problems, use it at your own risk.
Install the XP Theme Files
  1. Themes are usually downloaded as a .zip file which must first be scanned using a virus scanning program, then unzipped to a temporary folder you can create on your desktop. Inside that folder you will most likely find a wallpaper image, .msstyles file, a .theme file and possibly a font file. it all depends on what the author has chosen to include in their theme package.

  2. If your theme package contains one or more font files (.ttf) copy them to your C:\Windows\Fonts\ folder.

  3. You may also find one or more .theme files (like axis.theme. Copy it/them to your C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ folder. You will see a folder called Luna already in there, leave that alone, it is your existing Micro$oft XP Theme.

  4. Locate the .msstyles file, create a folder in the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ folder, I usually name it what the .msstyles file is named (like axis.msstyles so the folder would be axis).

  5. If you find a file called ShellStyle.dll, create a folder called Shell inside the first folder you created. Create another folder inside that called NormalColor. Copy ShellStyle.dll into the NormalColor folder.

  6. Most of the time you will unzip the file and everything will be properly ordered and only need to be copied to your C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ folder.

  7. To install the wallpaper copy the wallpaper image file to your My Pictures folder.

How to Use the XP Theme
  1. While in your My Pictures folder that contains your wallpaper, click on the wallpaper file once to highlight it. In the menu on the left side of the window you will see at the top Picture Tasks. Click on Set as desktop background. You should see the wallpaper on your desktop.

  2. If the wallpaper needs to be stretched to fill the screen close the My Pictures window. Right click on the desktop, select Properties. The Display Properties window comes up, choose the Desktop tab. Your wallpaper should be highlighted in the list, using the Position box choose if you want it Tiled, Centered or Stretched.

  3. While in Display Properties if your theme had a .theme file select the Themes tab and select your theme from the list. If your theme only had a .msstyles file go to the Appearance tab and select your theme from the Windows and Buttons list.

  4. After you are done making your choices you can go to the Themes tab and save your theme by clicking Save As..., and then name it something.

  5. That's all there is to it and all without buying any programs.

Sounds like you are infected.
I would advise copying your data off and rebuilding the pc.  It would probably be quicker than cleaning.

Running MGI Photosuite version 8.05 in Vista


MGI Photosuite on Vista, THE FINAL SOLUTION!!! First you need to get hold of an MGI disc or a download. I have been trying to get MGI Photosuite III SE to install on Vista for months without success and then when I thought I'd finally sorted it I could not launch the program due to a script error. You do not need Virtual PC, Virtual XP or any add-ons. Simply find and right click the the MGI setup file, check the run in compatibility mode as Windows XP SP2 and install. After install, send a program launch shortcut to your desktop, right click, go to properties and check the Windows XP compatibility mode once again. Finally, while you still have the compatibility screen open add a tick check to Run As Administrator. Hey presto my beloved MGI Photosuite is back! MGI is fantastic for being user friendly and simple, and although I know other users insist there are better programs, I’ve tried loads and I still think it’s a winner.

Spoolsv.exe application error


The Spoolsv.exe executable file is responsible for handling the printing process on a Microsoft Windows system. Although this process is not crucial to run your Windows system, you must not terminate it until you think that it is causing problems on the system.

To fix spoolsv.exe application error, you will have to remove these files from the system. To do this, perform the following steps on your Windows XP computer:
  1. Open Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, select Administrative Tools and then select the Services option.
  2. In the Services management console, locate the Spooler services, right-click on it and select Stop.
  3. Next, open the C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers folder. (Here, we are assuming that your Windows is installed in the default C:\Windows folder)
  4. Delete all the .SHD and SPL files from this folder.
  5. Next, open the TMP folder and delete all old and unused files from this folder.
  6. Finally, restart the Spooler service from the Services management console.

    Note: If you are unable to delete the files in Normal Mode, then you may have to restart your computer in Safe Mode to delete the files. To start your PC in Safe Mode, press F8 at system restart and then select the Safe Mode option from Windows Advanced Options Menu.

    If deleting the files does not rectify the problem, you must perform a System Restore and rollback your system to the time prior to when the error started appearing on your computer.
  • It is important for you to know that application errors can also occur due to virus or spyware infections. In fact the Spoolsv.exe process is also a known backdoor vulnerability that can be planted on your computer for malicious purposes by a hacker.
*Your vote is highly be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Let me know if this fix your problem.

Best regards

Victim of software counterfeiting


After installing your genuine copy of Microsoft Windows XP you are prompted with a “Your software is counterfeit” error message at startup. Even after visiting the www.microsoft.com/genuine/ site and validating, you still get the above message popping up after 2 or 3 boots. There is an easy solution to this and I would like you to follow the steps below to fix the issue.
1. C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
  • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
2. Safe Mode
  • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatively tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
  • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
  • C:\Windows\System32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  • C:\Windows\System32\dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
    Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
3. Safe Mode Registry
  • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
  • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
    HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WGALOGON
  • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
  • After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
  • After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode
After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine.

Cannot get rid of an unwanted program .


here's manual antivirus xp 2008 removal
http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-antivirus-xp.html

If you are having problems with your desktop or getting the nasty message when you boot up follow the instructions below, but use the above link to remove the virus. YES THIS IS A VIRUS AND NOT A VIRUS REMOVAL TOOL!

First you need to stop the program from loading on startup. This is what you do to stop it:

Start, run

Type msconfig

Go to Startup tab
(if you've totally removed the antivirus program, you will not find these files and you can skip to the gpedit.msc step)

Uncheck lphc35dj0e1an
Uncheck rhc75dj0e1an

Click apply, then ok
Restart computer


Then you need to delete the main files this program uses. Delete the following file:

C:\windows\system32\lphc35dj0e1an.exe

Delete the following folder and all contents:

C:\program files\rhc75dj0e1an

This should remove the program from your system but you probably still have a warning message displayed as your wallpaper in Windows and the virus removed the ability to change the wallpaper or your desktop settings.

To restore ability to change your desktop settings and select a different wallpaper and screen saver do the following:

Start, run

type Gpedit.msc

Navigate to User configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display

Right click on Remove Display in Control Panel
Click on Properties and select Disabled

Do the same steps to change the following attributes to disabled:

Hide Desktop Tab
Prevent changing wallpaper
Hide Apperance and Themes tab
Hide Settings tab
Hide Screen Saver tab

You should now be able to use your computer normally and change the wallpaper/screensaver to something other than the warning message Antivirus XP 2008 set it to.
