IF you are getting this error at the computer startup...

Click on start ---->go to run----> type msconfig---->click startup tab at the top---->uncheck entries that you think you dont use.

Uncheck and then restart.
It will not un-install but disable those unchecked entries from startup.

I keep getting this error: Intel® Express Installer < The application failed to initialize successfully-(E0441203). Actually when installing the mother board drivers, there has been a power cut...

The failed install has messed Windows itself its integrated installer has been corrupted.
The easiest way to fix that is to reinstall, otherwise you will gonna have to manually delete all partially installed drivers, clean the registry and perform a Repair install.

Fix Windows Vista problem with event viewer not working

While there are many different things that might cause the event viewer to stop working (mainly corrupted files which mean windows reinstall *shudder*) one of the things I found that fixed the problem at one of my clients sites happened to be simple enough as reseting the winsock file.

The winsock library is supposed to be the file that never is supposed to fail according to many but on occasion it does. Of course because of this anything that is dependent on it's functions will not work correctly. Because windows vista and higher are so highly dependent on functions that require the winsock, other things will refuse to work like network (internet) connectivity and system services like event viewer.

Here is one of the easier ways to fix it without having to go through the hassle of reinstalling windows.

press start, then press all programs, goto accessories, then look for command prompt.

Don't just left click on it as we have to start it in a different mode I.E. run as administrator.

Right click on command prompt and left click on run as administrator, windows will most likely bring up the warning about if you want to do this, it is safe and of course it should be allowed.

When you see a black window with text open up, this is your command prompt.

in this window just type in the following line:

netsh winsock reset

it may run for a quick moment and could come up with some initialization errors but it will then says winsock is successfully reset and the computer needs to be restarted.

Just restart the computer and check to make sure the program or feature you were trying to use works again :)

During Window Update error Code: 80073712 is found

To fix it,
Click the start pearl, type CMD on the search line, right click CMD.exe on the Menu above, click "run as Administrator". On the command line type the following command:
reg delete HKLM\COMPONENTS /v StoreDirty

also navigate to C:\Windows\winsxs, and delete a file called "Pending.xml" [its on every vista install if you can see it or not]

you will need to enable "show all files" and uncheck "protected operating system files" from "folder options" in control panel
