Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

In response to a warning I used a downloaded file to remove the " picture" fromm all my desktop short cuts. I also recall a Microsoft message about the problem with the icons that allows the face enabling to files to be used by hackers. Now I can find no news on this issue and can't not restore my icons. What is the status of this issue? Jerry Miller

Sony VAIO VGC-RB38G PC Desktop needs the media center re-installed


I would seriously doubt that your kids know how to remove Media Center. Maybe they just removed the icon from the desktop. Click Start/My Computer and open the Local Disk C. Look for the Programs File Folder. If you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista there might be two Program File folders (Program Files and Program Files (x86). Look thru the program files folders for the Windows Media Player Folder or Windows Media Center Folder. Open the folder and look for the Media Player. When you see the Icon you can Right Click on it and select Properties. If the Type of File in the properties windows says Application, that is probably the program that runs. You can close the properties window and double click on the icon and see if it runs.

If it runs, you can close it and go back into the folder and Right Click on the icon and select the option Sent To then select Desktop (create Short Cut). Right Click on it again and select option to Pin To Start Menu.

If you just want to download and install it again.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Download Media Player" or "Download Media Center" (without the quotes). Select a site from Microsoft that will download and install it.

I had the microsoft picture it 7.0 program for years. my computer crashed and i can't find the program. i love the program. can you please help me


You really need to give more details 'what operating system is it ie; win xp , vista or win 7 and what happened after the crash was the computer repaired or restored or was it reformatted etc? one thing to try is to just do a basic search using the windows file search program --go to start - search for files- type in the file name and click search or use advanced search and search for all files with the specific key words of the program IE:picture it 7.0 or Microsoft picture it -- hopefully it will bring up all the files related to what you are looking for -if it does then look for the actual application files and find the directory it is located in ---example -- c/windows - system 32- etc you should be able to start the file from the actual file folder and then create a desktop short cut to it .some times after a crash shortcuts are lost while the actual program is still installed.

I hope this helps

How do i uninstall microsoft active x control on my pc?


Internet Explorer 3.0, 3.01, and 3.02 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); 1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs, and then click the Install/Uninstall tab. 2. If the ActiveX control you want to remove appears in the list of installed programs, click the ActiveX control, click Add/Remove, and then follow the instructions on the screen. If the ActiveX control does not appear in the list of installed programs, continue with the next step. 3. Click Start, click Run, type the following line in the Open box, and then click OK: regsvr32 drive:\windows\occache\filename.ocx /uNOTE: drive is the drive letter on which the Windows folder is located, windows is the name of the folder in which Windows is installed, and filename.ocx is the ActiveX control you want to remove.

NOTE: If you do not know the file name of the ActiveX control (.ocx) you want to remove, you may be able to determine the file name by viewing the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) source of a Web page that installs or uses the ActiveX control. To view the HTML source of a Web page, right-click an empty area of the Web page, and then click View Source. 4. In Windows Explorer or Windows NT Explorer, click the .ocx file in the Windows\Occache folder, and then click Delete on the File menu.Occache is the name of the folder where ActiveX controls are installed in all versions of Internet Explorer 3.x. The Regsvr32.exe file is installed by Internet Explorer and can be used to register and remove registry entries for ActiveX controls.
Internet Explorer 4.x or Later (All Platforms) loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Internet Explorer 4.x or later, include the Occache.dll file, which is used to enumerate, update, and safely uninstall ActiveX controls using a "shell folder." 1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs, and then click the Install/Uninstall tab. 2. If the ActiveX control you want to remove appears in the list of installed programs, click the ActiveX control, click Add/Remove, and then follow the instructions on the screen. If the ActiveX control does not appear in the list of installed programs, continue with the next step. 3. In Windows Explorer or Windows NT Explorer, double-click the Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder or the Winnt\Downloaded Program Files folder, right-click the ActiveX control you want to remove, and then click Remove. 4. When you are prompted to remove the ActiveX control, click Yes.IMPORTANT: The following ActiveX controls should not be removed if you are running Internet Explorer 4.0: • DirectAnimation Java Classes • Internet Explorer Classes for Java • Microsoft XML Parser for Java • Win32 ClassesInternet Explorer 5.0 or later does not require these components in the Downloaded Program Files files.
Error Messages Removing ActiveX Controls loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); When you attempt to remove an ActiveX control using an Occache shell folder, you may receive one of the following messages: • Share Violation These program files are currently being used by one or more programs. Please close some programs, and try again. You may need to restart Windows. • Component Removal About to remove a Windows system DLL: (<path\filename>). Okay to delete?Share Violation:

This message occurs if the ActiveX control you are trying to remove is currently loaded in memory by Internet Explorer or the Active Desktop component.

To resolve this error message, follow these steps: 1. Close all open Internet Explorer windows. 2. Disable the Active Desktop. To do so, right-click an empty area on the desktop, point to Active Desktop, and then click View As Web Page to clear the check mark. 3. Remove the ActiveX control by following the steps in the "Internet Explorer 4.0 or Later" section earlier in this article.

NOTE: You may need to restart Windows before you remove the ActiveX Control.Component Removal:

This message occurs only in versions of Internet Explorer 4 prior to 4.01 Service Pack 1 (SP1) when the ActiveX control you are removing installed files into a folder other than a registered Occache folder (for example, Windows\System or Winnt\System32). Occache cannot always determine if those files are shared by their programs.

If you are certain the file or files displayed in the message are not being used by Windows or another program, click Yes. Otherwise, click No.

NOTE: In Internet Explorer 4.01 SP1 and later, Occache does not remove (or prompt you to remove) dependent files outside of a registered Occache folder.
Support for Multiple Occache Folders loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Internet Explorer 4.0 and later supports multiple Occache folders. The list of Occache folders is located in the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ActiveX CacheBy default, Internet Explorer 4.0 and later uses the Windows\Downloaded Program Files or Winnt\Downloaded Program Files folder. If you upgraded from Internet Explorer 3.x, both an Occache and Downloaded Program Files folder may exist. In this case, all new ActiveX controls are installed in the Downloaded Program Files folder, but previously installed ActiveX controls still work in the Occache folder. When you open the Occache or Downloaded Program Files folder in Windows Explorer, Windows NT Explorer, or My Computer, all ActiveX controls are displayed regardless of the folder in which the ActiveX control's files are located. In this case, the following string values appear in the registry key: "0"="C:\\WINDOWS\\OCCACHE" "1"="C:\\WINDOWS\\Downloaded Program Files" For additional information about ActiveX controls, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 154544 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154544/EN-US/) Description of ActiveX Technologies For information about how Internet Explorer downloads ActiveX controls if a conflict occurs (for example, if the file already exists), please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
