Be advised that Microsoft has discontinued winchat after releasing SP2 for windows xp. and did not bother to make the necessary changes to make it functional to meet users needs. you should try something different third party products most of the are free!
try this one:

Both computors must be connected to the same network{LAN} or Internet as you probably know.Also ,each computor must be running a similar Protocol,such as TCP/IP.Please also recheck the ip address and whether you have not been barred by your destination computor.Regards

I have vista home basic sp2 and the REG_SZ data value is not set. can you help?


> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
> (default) reg_sz (value not set)
> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
> (default) Reg_sz (value not set)


This can be caused by a blank entry, such as can be left behind by
an incomplete program removal, in the
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and/or
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run keys. It can also
be caused by an entry in these same keys that starts with a " / ."

Add Remove Programs list is blank -- Windows 2000


Usually It happens due to some virus activity or any corruption in system files. So when you go to Add Remove Programmes, It shows nothing but a blank space.

· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 6.0 installed, repair Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.
· To resolve this issue with Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5 installed, repair Internet Explorer 5.0 or 5.5:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Paste the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"
Because this command is case sensitive, you should copy the command, and then paste the command in the Open box.

If the Add/Remove Programs tool still does not function properly, shows no content, or if you want to try to fix this issue without upgrading to later versions of Internet Explorer, check the following registry keys to make sure that they contain entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache
Note If the previous registry keys are blank, the Add/Remove Programs tool may also be blank.

Use the command line REGSVR32 [path\filename] to register each of the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Appwiz.cpl
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtml.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Jscript.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msi.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\Oledb32.dll
Program Files\Common Files\System\Ado\Msado15.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Msdart32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Mshtmled.dll
%systemroot%\System32\Mswstr10.dll [not registerable]


If the Add/Remove Programs tool displays incomplete information or is blank, verify the file dates. Where possible, register the following files:

%systemroot%\System32\Gdi32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\User32.dll [not registerable]
%systemroot%\System32\Msvcrt.dll [not registerable]

Unable to locate printer


Also check that:

1. It is the DEFAULT printer in the computer you are using
2. Load driver again from the manufacturer's CD and not the WIndows driver.
3. Check your USB cable and consider trying a differnt cable also.

Accidently deleted TCPIP folder system32


Hi, In Windows XP SP2 ,assuming that all the viruses have been removed and there are no other issues, go to Control Panel, Network Connections, right click on Properties of your Networking Card or Wifi, in the General tab click on Install, highlight Protocol, click on Microsoft, select TCP/IP, OK. Btw, I don't recall Windows having any folder TCPIP. In any case, hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
