Yes, this sounds like a serious virus infection.
1. Download a free Antivirus program like Avast:
2. Your downloaded file will be "setup_av_free.exe".
3. Instead of opening the exe file as is, rename the file first. You can rename a file by selecting it then right click then choose "rename". For example, you can rename the file to "paris.exe" or whatever you want.
4. After renaming the file, you can now run and install it.
Note: Some viruses recognize antivirus programs because they know the installer file names. By renaming the installer file, you are tricking the virus into allowing you to install the antivirus application.
DOWNLOAD MALWAREBYTES ANTIMALWARE. Rename it to Something.exe install it. Run it in safe mode and do a full scan . it should pick up the virus and delete it and quarintine it. Restart your PC when required.
This usually happens when you have either renamed the file, moved the file somwhere else, or deleted it all together. Sometimes you may forget editing the filename or moving it to a subfolder.
Whenever you do this be sure to go to itunes and either add the file again and delete the old one from the database or "Get Info" and update the current file.
tho u ve not mentioned any specific name of the file i m tryin to give u an example..suppose u are cant locate the music file m sure the files are where they are supposed to be then they must have been renamed. You can verify this -
Find a track with an exclamation mark next to it Open your iTunes Music Library.xml file with Notepad (the iTunes Music Library.xml file is usually in C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\My Documents\My Music\iTunes). Search for the track name A dozen or so lines below the track name will be the full path to the file and the filename. Compare this to where you know the file to be. If it is different then that would show that something/someone has moved/renamed the file.
hope u will b sorted out wth ur problem...
all the best
Try the free version of Malwarebytes If you have issues installing it, try renaming the file and then renaming the main .exe after it's installed. Some viruses and trojans can recognize the file name and prevent it from installing/running. Also try safe mode to install and run a full scan.
maybe your drive is already full, if your drive is already full try to delete the temp file or delete your unnecessary files, if not try to check the file that you are trying to copy, maybe there some associate file which have a long file name, try to rename it but copy first the original file name to notepad, and after copying rename again your file that you renamed before, if still not tell us what kind of file you want to copy.
Firts of all, your D: drive is usually your CD: Drive. typically the Hard drive is the C: drive.
Sooooooo.... Thats is kind of self explanitory. Save to your Hard Drive not your CD drive.
If your trying to Burn a CD then your trying to fit to much data on one disk. CD's hold about 700MB or 80min of music.
If it keeps filling up with random files and thing, then you may have a virus thats replicating itself, run your virus scan. back up your files to an external drive or burn to a disk if possible and re-install windows if the virus cant be removed by your Ant-virus.
Make sure and keep copies of all the folders and files.
Take these actions to resolve your problem:
On all Active Directory registered domain controllers:
1. Stop NETLOGON Service
2. Stop File Replication Service (NTFRS)
On the PDC Emulator:
1. Rename all files in the %systemroot%\ntfrs folder and subfolders (change their extension to .old).
2. Give an unlisted account full control of the directory %systemroot%\SYSVOL folder and reset permissions on all child objects.
3. Change the registry key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ntfrs\paramaters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup\BurFlags (REG_DWORD) = D4 (The default on this is 0)
4. Start the NETLOGON Service
5. Start the NTFRS Service
On all non-PDC emulators:
1. Change the registry key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ntfrs\paramaters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup\BurFlags (REG_DWORD) = D2
2. Start the NETLOGON Service
3. Start the File Replication Service (NTFRS)
At this point, the system in question should have recreated the SYSVOL share and the NETLOGON share. Check this by running 'net share' from a command prompt. You should also see the Group Policy Objects listed in the SYSVOL directory as:
There may be more directories listed here, but these are the Default Domain Policy and the Default Domain Controllers Policy that are installed by default when the Active Directory is created. If these are being replicated, then file replication is functioning.
If you cannot find these directories, then you may have to manually recreate them. Here is a list of the proper directory structure of the %systemroot%\SYSVOL folder:
\SYSVOL ________\domain ________________\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory ________________\Policies ________________\Scripts ________\scripts ________\staging ________\staging areas ________________\domain_name ________\sysvol (shared as SYSVOL) ________________\domain_name ________________________\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory ________________________\Policies ________________________\Scripts (shared as NETLOGON)
If you have to manually recreate the directories, restart the File Replication Service (NTFRS) on all domain controllers to re-enable replication. This should get the file replication functioning normally
