Have you tried using run? Usually windows will find it on its own since System32 is in environmental path.
To do this just hit Windows Button + R and type "msconfig" into the window that pops up.

C windows system32 keyboard services.exe


Hi,
The virus that cause in action in these system file's is using up of pen-drive's without running an anti-virus check before accessing it,if people's use pen-drive's in like internet cafe's or anything like that.You can wipe it of if you know how exactly find the file in the registry.(The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUP.).I personally recommend to use Avira Ant-virus or Kaspersky works well and don't slow down the system.
Please find out the URL link.

Hope this Helped!

Keyboard\service.exe not found error


This is a virus that infected your computer. There is no "keyboard\service.exe" file in Windows. Your antivirus likely removed it but it's still trying to load up on start up.

Go start->Run and type in "msconfig"
Then go to the startup tab on the window that appears and look for that particular exe file and disable it. You shouldn't get the message anymore.

Also clean your harddisk wint an antivirus program

CSRCS.exe


Hello,

My research of that file name indicates it is most likely a trojan of some sort. If it is missing, your antivirus probably removed it.

To remove the message, open MSConfig and goto the startup tab. Uncheck the item associated with CSRCS.exe

If you have windows 2000 you will need to find a copy of MSConfig from the internet.

Good Luck.

How to register ocx on vista


[Solution # 1]
Drag and drop it onto regsvr32.exe in Windows\system32 folder. Make a shortcut for regsvr32.exe in the same folder the OCX is in and drag and drop it that way

[Solution # 2] Just run cmd.exe as administrator and try again. This is the key.

Here, step by step:

1. find the folder of cmd: it is usually on C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
2. Do right click over cmd.exe and click on "run as Administrator"
3. now just use regsvr32.exe as you used to do!

For example, to register most Blackd Proxy ocxs, you might need to type this in "Administrator" cmd:

regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\richtx32.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\comdlg32.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\mswinsck.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\msflxgrd.ocx
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\msinet.ocx
regsvr32.exe C:\windows\system32\comctl32.ocx

A side result for Visual Basic 6.0 users: this seems to be the way to use components in Windows Vista properly. Just register the components of your proyect with "Administrator" cmd before adding them to your proyect (or before opening a proyect that already had such components)


[Solution # 3]
use this in command line

REGSVR32 /V then ur ocx or dll name
ex:
REGSVR32 /V CRPAIG32.DLL


[Solution # 4]
right-clicking the batch file and selecting 
'run as administrator'.

Registered:
richtx32.ocx
comdlg32.ocx
mscomctl.ocx
dxtmeta2.dll


Good luck

WINDOW CANNOT FIND GPHONE.EXE


Gphone.exe is worm which spreads via instant messengers. It usually affects Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk applications. Gphone.exe send a message and invites victims to visit a website. If clicked upon, the link actually delivers a copy of Gphone.exe infection.

Most likely you have a security program that detected and removed the threat but windows is still trying to load the file on startup.

Go to Start > Run> type "msconfig" and press enter. click the startup tab and uncheck the box that says "gphone.exe". (it may have a long file or folder path in front like c:\windows\system32).

Go to this website if you need further removal instructions:
