Running start up script

Hi

When I log in windows wants to run a start up script every time which take ages to run, is there any way to speed it up or a solution to this problem?

This only happens on one account, I am able to log in with another user name and load up quite quickly. I have also tried to recreate the user profile by renaming the old profile, I am using a windows XP computer.

Thanks

Hello,

Click start - Run- Type "msconfig" without quotes.

Click the startup on top. Uncheck the startup script you mentioned. Save and restart and it should boo up fine.

Hope it helps. Kindly update me as well.

Regards

Sammy

I have a program(taskhost.exe) which I can't close, and is preventing me from logging off, or shut down my PC


Taskhost.exe is part of windows. killing shouldn't affect anything critical. It's function is to run script that need to run at certaint times. low priority stuff. Recomend you run antivirus and anti malware software. also run windows update. those 3 things tend to find the majority of issues. then open your control panel and look through the add programs section and see if anything has been installed that you don't want. Many time programs install other programs that will cause your computer to have issues.

Hi can you please try this one
You need to enable scripting:

Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

Click the "Security" tab.

Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

Scroll down to "Scripting."

Enable the following:

* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.

I cannot log in my yahoo messenger but i can in yahoo mail why?


First Step:
It is more likely that scripts are having issues running on your computer. To correct this you need to Download Windows Script 5.6 depending on your operating system.

Second Step:
Undo damage that might be caused by a virus

Hi, I am using Yahoo messenger 10.0.0.1270-us when i logged in i dont see my display message and all my friends' display images. I have already checked on the Preferences but it seems theres no...


The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout cleaner to easily fix it

Internet Explorer script error do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Library not registered


it could be possible that The author of the webpage you are accessing has simply made some sort of programming error and this is typically the most common reason.or that You are possibly running a pop-up killer of some kind which closes the pop-up too quickly which causes the script of the website to fail and thus giving you the error because it didnt complete.
possible You (still) have some sort of spyware or adware infection that tries to launch something such as a popup but causes script errors.
this is the most likely issue in your situation.

Solution:

1. Make sure your Anti-Virus software is up-to-date and then run a full system scan.

2. Try running a scan with other malware detection software. (Malwarebytes )

3. Be sure your are not running Rogue Anti-Virus software ( Security Center, Anti-Virus 2009, and Anti-Virus 2010).

4. Take a look into the Event Viewer to see the path of where the script is coming from. Some more detail may show up in the Event Viewer log)

5. Run windows updates and install any critical/important updates.

hope this helps

First let me explain. Each browser handles scripts (the stuff that make up web pages and stuff) differently. You have Notify Me of Script Errors turned "ON" on your computer, so you will be notified of every error or warning - even if it works fine.

FIX: To fix this, Go to your Control Panel (START > Control Panel) and, in Classic View (you can find that on the left panel), click Internet Options. In the tabs on the top, click "Advanced", and then find the category "Browsing". CHECK "Disable Script Debugging (Internet Explorer), and "Disable Script Debugging (Other)". UNCHECK "Display a notification about every script error".

Click OK, and then messenger should work fine. If it does it again, restart your computer, then it will work fine.
