Question about Computers & Internet

Computer problem Whenever I start the computer a message is displayed saying.. Can not find script file "C:\WINDOWS\ststem32\AVG.vbs". Currently I am using trial version of Kaspersky anti virus. Previously I was using trial version of AVG 7.5. This problem started while I was using AVG anti virus. But as AVG was slowing down my computer so I changed it. But the message is still displayed whenever I start the computer.This problem was posted by me 1 day ago. One expert named Chadha Saab suggested me to open windows folder open system 32 folder, find the file avg.vbs and delete it. He also said that if u are not able to find avg.vbs then it might be hidden, goto tools at the top then folder options and u will find an option to show all hidden files and folders just select that one and hit apply and ok then see whether you are able to find that file in system 32 folder, if still u cant find it then goto start then click on search (win xp) click on files and folders and search for avg.vbs in c drive if u find it then delete it.If these methods fail he suggested me to goto this link http://www.download.com/FileAssassin/3000-2094_4-10639988.html and download file assassin.exe install and run it on the system. He also said when u run it u will see a box there ( blank white box in which u need to MANUALLY type the exact link of the file which is c:/windows/system32/avg.vbs Select "use normal delete function" and then click on delete and it would be deleted. But by the first method I could not find the avg.vbs file. When I tried to remove the file using FileASSASSIN it said..... the file you have specified does not exist or is not visible to FileASSASSIN. Please select another file. Now how can I get rid of the problem? Also is Avast anti virus free to download? How good an anti virus is it? Can you tell me where from can I download it?

I think that avg is a great program. One problem you might be facing is low system specs. How much memory do you have and what do you have for a processor? Basically what is happening is that the avg file is still embedded in the registry because it was not properly uninstalled. Some of those programs are very hard to uninstall especially norton. Norton is a pain in the ***.

Anyways. One thing that you can do is go to start, run...then type msconfig BAsically you will go through the services and start-up files that you want to run. Uncheck if you dont want them to run. I suggest to hide all microsoft services. Now unselect any avg file.

Then when you restart since the system isnt trying to load that dll..then you may be able to delete it.

If not, at least you should be able to help a little.

btw. 2 antivirus programs installed on the same computer will cause conflicts as well. be careful I use the avg free edition and its great for me. Stay away from porn and warez/ free downloaded games...etc.

The only way to get a reliable anti-virus is to purchase. Use the control panel - add/remove and uninstall any avg programs. Then run msconfig - startup and disable any avg program. Reboot. See what happens. Purchase an anti-virus and load that.

If you can use command prompt run the tool sfc / scannow as a administrator.

Or you can run checkdisk also as a administrator.C:\ CHKDSK /F/R this process can take several hours.

Num lock


If you use the number pad frequently during your daily computer usage, you may want to have the "Num Lock" key enabled when the computer starts up.
You can enable Num Lock automatically in two different ways: one involves modifying a value in the registry and the other requires you to create a small script in Notepad.
Activate Num Lock Through the Registry
Enter the registry and navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\." Double-click on the value labeled "IntitialKeyboardIndicators," which has a value of 0,1 or 2.
Change the value to "2" to turn Num Lock on after logon, "0" to turn Num Lock off after logon and "1" to disable Num Lock.
Create a Num Lock Script
Configure a script that runs to automatically change the Num Lock state.
Depending on where you place the script, you can activate the script for a single user or all users on the computer. Open Notepad and paste the following code
"set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"
Save the file as "numlock.vbs," including the quotes to change the notepad file to a script.
Paste the file in the directory "Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" to enable Num Lock for all users by default.
For a single user, copy it to their startup folder instead of All Users.
Enter the BIOS
Enter your computer's BIOS before Windows boots up to change the integrated Num Lock settings.
Depending on your motherboard manufacturer, different key combinations allow you to access the BIOS.
Common keys include "F1," "F2," "Del," "ESC" or "F10."
Consult your computer's documentation for specifics.
Navigate through the basic or advanced options until you find a section dedicated to enable or disable Num Lock on boot.
Enable in Linux
Linux is an alternate operating system.
While the BIOS method may work for Linux, you can also change the process through the options if using KDE Linux.
Navigate to "Control Panel" and click "Peripherals." Select "Keyboard" and select the option "Turn on" under the heading labeled "NumLock on KDE Startup."

8) Go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

11) Delete all the **** after the comma.

I am not able to edit my basic info.


Hi, what basic info exactly are you talking about?
Computer owner / organisation?

If you would like to use a script to change your owner / organisation, please follow the steps below.

NOTE: Executing a .VBS script is usually not a good idea, unless you know what you are doing. Please carefully follow the instructions below.

Below is a custom script made to change your owner/organisation.
Press Start->Run
type notepad.exe, press Enter

copy and paste the following:

'ChgOwnOrg.vbs - Change Win9x Registered Owner/Organization.
'© Bill James - billjames.geo@yahoo.com - rev 29 Oct 1999.
'Modified for Windows XP

Option Explicit

Set ws = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim ws, t, p1, p2, n, g, cn, cg
Dim itemtype

p1 = "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\"

n = ws.RegRead(p1 & "RegisteredOwner")
g = ws.RegRead(p1 & "RegisteredOrganization")
t = "Change Owner and Organization Utility"
cn = InputBox("Type new Owner and click OK", t, n)
If cn <> "" Then
ws.RegWrite p1 & "RegisteredOwner", cn
End If

cg = InputBox("Type new Organization and click OK.", t, g)
If cg <> "" Then
ws.RegWrite p1 & "RegisteredOrganization", cg
End If

--- Stop copying here. DO NOT COPY THIS LINE ---

If you feel at all unsure, do not run this script. All it does it change your Owner and Organisation of the computer.

Save that file (in notepad) as "Change Info.vbs"
Note that you will have to change the "Save as type" to "All Files"

After you are done saving it, close notepad and double click "Change Info.vbs" and it will ask you to enter first your name, and then your organisation.

If this wasn't what you were asking about, or if you don't want to run a .vbs script (I can understand), please let us know.
