Acer aspire 1 startup main 339: mscomctl.ocx missing or incomplete


Hello,

It seems that this file is corrupted or missing. What you can do is to manually replace this file. Follow the steps below to replace the file.

  1. Download the mscomctl.ocx file to your desktop (right-click on link and choose 'Save link as...')
  2. Then go to My Computer > C: > WINDOWS > SYSTEM folder to check if you have a previous version of the mscomctl.ocx file. If yes, just make a backup of it.
  3. Copy the downloaded file from the desktop and paste it in C: > WINDOWS > SYSTEM folder.
After replacing the file, you will need to register the newly downloaded file. To do, follow the simple following steps.

  1. Click on 'Start' button and click on 'Run'
  2. In the 'Open' line, type : regsvr32 \windows\system32\MSCOMCTL.OCX
This command will register the file you have downloaded and added to the SYSTEM folder. You should see a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded" if registration is OK.

Please note that you have to enter the command exactly as it appears above. (You may copy and paste it).

Following repair by an anti-virus file UACxitmtbjtwv.dll seems to have been damaged or removed, can you help? I need to replace / repair this file but don't have original discs, can I download? Regards,


I can't find any mention of this dll file anywhere. I believe that what you have is a remnant of a virus. I think it was a program that was set to run when Windows started up that probably kept reinfecting your computer with the virus and now that you have repaired the virus, this program is still trying to start but is missing that file. I would recommend running "msconfig" and going into the startup configuration and seeing if you can find any unfamiliar programs that are loading on startup. It will probably be a trial and error type of troubleshooting where you disable and enable them one at a time and try to find which program is causing that error message for that file when it loads. It could also be under "Start" "All Programs" >"Startup".

Laptop won't start up in Windows due to a missing or corrupt file


No all you have to do is follow its instructions and use the Windows XP cd and during startup boot to the cd and during installation choose the repair option.

This will not make you lose any files and then you will be able to get in and back to work or whatever it is for again.

Problem with pc


Here is the solution right from Microsoft.

 

SYMPTOMS
When you try to start or restart your Windows XP-based computer, you may receive one of the following error messages:

Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE

Stop: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate

CAUSE
This issue can occur if the System or Software hive for the Windows XP installation is missing or damaged.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods.

Use the Recovery Console Tool
To restore a damaged registry hive, use the Recovery Console to restore the backup copy of the hive from the Repair folder. The Repair folder contains a copy of the system's registry hives that were created after the first successful startup of Windows XP.

WARNING : Although data should not be affected by the following procedure, you may need to restore changes you previously made to programs or system settings since the first time you successfully started Windows XP.

To replace the damaged registry hive and restore the backup copy of the hive from the Repair folder: Start your computer to the Recovery Console.

Determine if the file that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section of this article is present, and if it is, rename it:

In Recovery Console, change to the c:\Windows folder.

Type cd sytem32\config , and then press ENTER.

Type dir system , and then press ENTER.

If you cannot run the preceding command successfully (because the file is missing), skip to step 3. If you can run the preceding command successfully, type ren system system.bak , and then press ENTER.

NOTE : If the message that you received referred to the software file, replace "system" with "software" in the preceding command. For example, you would type ren software software.bak (instead of ren system system.bak ), and then press ENTER.

Type copy c:\windows\repair\system , and then press ENTER.

NOTE : If the message that you received referred to the software file, replace "system" with "software" in the preceding command. For example, you would type copy c:\windows\repair\software (instead of copy c:\windows\repair\system ), and then press ENTER.

You should receive a "One file copied" informational message. For additional information about how to use Recovery Console during startup, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
Q307654 HOW TO: Install and Use the Recovery Console for Windows XP


IMPORTANT : If you encounter problems when you run the preceding commands, you may need to use the Change Directory command ( cd ) one folder at a time before you run the preceding commands. For example, type cd system32 , press ENTER, type cd config , and then press ENTER.

Type exit , and then press ENTER to quit Recovery Console and restart the computer.

Startup problem


From: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000646.htm If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps. 1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue. 2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key. 3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console. 4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password. 5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file. 7. Type exit to reboot the computer. If you only have a restore CD, this probably won't work. You should just start the restore all over again, if this is the case.
