You may have a corrupted driver for your PMD. See if the manufacturer as a driver or HP.
Microsoft Windows drivers must have an INF file in order to be installed. An INF file is a text file that contains all the information necessary to install a device, such as driver names and locations, registry information, version information, that is used by the Setup components.

Windows Cannot Find "Copy.exe"


When i installed AVG Free last time it removed few virus including "copy.exe". so whenever i go to "My Computer" (win key + E) and double click on any hard drive then i find an error stating that (Windows cannot find "Copy.exe").
Solution:
Well the solution for this "copy.exe" conundrum is to get rid of a file called autorun.inf in each of the infected hard drives. here's the solution for the problem......

Make sure you or the virus scanner is run through the infected hard drives/flash drives. to make sure the virus files is gone.
Now, some forums said you could just select "Show Hidden Files" from the option and this would enable you to see "autorun.inf" file.
Also, some entries in the "autorun.inf"may be legitimate. so to check the file (even when you can't see the file) do this: Type in the infected hard drive label followed by autorun.inf for example f:\autorun.inf
This will load autorun.inf file in notepad.if the only entry is that incriminating copy.exe then this is what i did. i tried to overwrite the file with the same name autorun.inf. that din't work because autorun file was readonly. so i saved that blank file on the desktop and simply cut it and pasted it into the drive, then selecting the overwrite option. that should stop that annoying windows cannot find "copy.exe" message every time you double click into a drive. this will solve the problem!

if you computer is very infected and you are not able to install the 2 antivirus i told, then do it on
another computer which is not infected. Then you will have to remove your hard disk from your computer and place it in the other one and do the scanning.
the USB antivirus is very useful you can install it in any computer you have it will protect you from autorun. it scan all usb and flash card also.

Avast also is a good antivirus which you can use.

i also suggest you to backup all your files, document, photos,etc.. after scanning. cause sometime you might get some error from windows. so backup and reinstall a fresh windows.

dont forget to reinstall the USB antivirus after.

GOODLUCK

Deleted PMD file


If you have not disconnected the pocket drive, have a look in the Recycle Bin, if it is still in there click on the PMD folder to highlight the folder and click on File - then click Restore.
This will then restore the PMD folder to the pocket drive.
If you don't see the PMD folder in the Recycle bin, you may be able to download it from the HP WEB site.

System restore on server 2003


Before we begin, you'll need an XP CD. Doesn't matter if it's home or pro. It shouldn't matter if it has a service pack on it, since all the files will be the same source. In testing i used a slipstreamed cd that already had sp1 on it.
In XP, system restore is installed in syssetup.inf under the inf.always section. If you have XP installed, you can open up %windir%\inf\syssetup.inf and search for [Infs.Always], you'll see the section xp looks at for installing system components. You'll notice it has sr.inf, this is the inf for system restore. For server 2003, if you look at syssetup.inf you won't find sr.inf. This doesn't mean system restore won't work in server 2003, it just means they didn't install it.

So first what we're going to need to do is right click on sr.inf and select 'install', to install it on server 2003. If you have xp installed on another computer/partition you can just right click on it. If you don't, then extract \i386\sr.in_ from the XP cd to your desktop, then right click on it and select 'install'. It'll prompt you where the files are, point it to the XP CD. Once done, it'll prompt to restart, say yes.

That was easy, the next part is the tricky part. After restarting you'll get an error saying the service couldn't start. Specifically the error is error 1068. I searched google and found this link -
CODE
http://www.aerdyne.com/Kbase/article_000005.htm.

The error basically means it cannot run under the service it's on. In system restore's case, it runs under the network service. I know this because in services.msc, for path to executable, it says this: C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs. This got me thinking so i opened up sr.inf, and found this line:

[SRSvc_delreg]
HKLM,"Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost","SRGroup"

I opened up regedit, and this registry key didn't exist. So it seems the sr.inf doesn't register system restore to run under the network services group. Using the above registry key as an example, i opened regedit and went to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost

On the right hand side i saw netsvcs. I double clicked on it, but saw SRService no where (SRService is the name for system restore). On a hunch, at the bottom i added SRService, rebooted, and this time got no error on startup. I opened up rstrui.exe, and system restore opened fine. I also had a System restore tab in system properties now too. I was able to make a restore point fine, then restore the computer to it without any problems. So in the above key, you want to double click on netsvcs, and at the bottom of the list, you want to type in SRService (probably case sensitive).

If you're not good with the registry you can save the following as a whatever.reg file and import it, but because it's binary i can't say if it'll work. I recommend manually adding SRService to the netsvcs key.

---copy below to whatever.reg then double click on it -----

Blue colour background saying it is the stop error screen.


The fix from Microsoft's website:
To resolve this problem, start your computer in Safe mode, remove the display adapter, rename the .inf files that are associated with the display adapter drivers, restart your computer in Normal mode, and then update your display adapter drivers. The following steps describe this procedure in more detail:
  1. Start Windows in Safe mode. To do so:
    1. Restart the computer, and then press F8 while the computer starts.
    2. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
    3. Use the ARROW keys to select the operating system to start, and then press ENTER to start Windows XP in Safe mode.
  2. In the message that states that Windows is running in Safe mode, click Yes.
  3. Click Start, click Run, type msinfo32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
  4. Under System Summary, expand Components, and then click Display.
  5. In the right pane, note the information that corresponds to the INF File item, for example, Nv4.inf, Oem0.inf, or Atim128.inf.
  6. Quit the System Information utility.
  7. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  8. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
  9. Expand Display adapters, right-click the display adapter, and then click Uninstall.
  10. Click OK.
  11. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
  12. In the Command Prompt window, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each line: ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.inf *inf.old
    ren %systemroot%\inf\INF file name from Step 5.pnf *pnf.old
  13. Close all open windows, and then restart the computer in the typical manner.
  14. Log on to Windows by using an account that has administrative privileges, and then wait for Windows to detect new hardware.
  15. When the Found New Hardware Wizard starts, click Cancel.

    If you receive a stop error after you remove the updated display drivers, restart the computer and use the Last Known Good Configuration option. To do this, restart the computer, and then press the F8 key while the computer starts. On the Windows Advanced Options Menu that appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

    If you receive a "System Has Recovered from a Serious Error" message when Windows starts, restart the computer again. This error message does not recur.
  16. Obtain and install the latest drivers for your display adapter.For information about how to contact your computer manufacturer, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors)
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
