Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

During shutdown and startup I get a message telling me an application is not being displayed because winscard.dll cannot be found, and advising me that re-installing the application may fix the problem. I do not know exactly what it is referring to, but I have recently lost the ability to burn DVDs that will play in my DVD player. I suspect there is a connection. I am frustrated.

I have this error message that pops up when I start my computer "There was a problem starting c:\users\focusconstruction\appdata\roaming\qufvc.dll the specified module could not be found


Go to Search and type MSConfig. At the startup tab uncheck anything relating back to that application. Not to worry if you are not sure. You can uncheck till you find it, or all.

Registry Hacking


<b><u>Display legal notice on startup</u></b>:<br />Wanna tell your friends about the do's and dont's in your computer when they login in your absence. Well you can do it pretty easily by displaying a legal notice at system start up.<br />REGEDIT<br />[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]<br />"legalnoticecaption"="enter your notice caption"<br />"legalnoticetext"="enter your legal notice text"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Automatic Administrator Login:</b></u><br />Well here's the trick which you can use to prove that Windows XP is not at all secure as multi-user operating system. Hacking the system registry from any account having access to system registry puts you in to the administrator account. <br />REGEDIT 4<br />[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]<br />"AutoAdminLogon"="1"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>No Shutdown:</b></u><br />Wanna play with your friends by removing the shutdown option from start menu in their computer.<br />Just hack it down !!!<br />Regedit<br />HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer<br />"NoClose"="DWORD:1"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Menu Delays:</b></u><br /> Another minor and easy tweak to remove any delay from menus sliding out. For this you will need to use regedit (open regedit by going to Start -&gt; Run..., then typing 'regedit' and pressing enter). The key you need to change is located in HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. The actual key is called MenuShowDelay - all you have to do is change the value to 0. Remember, you will have to re-boot your computer for this tweak to take effect.<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>GPEDIT.MSC And Autoplay</b></u><br /> A great tweaking file that comes with XP is gpedit.msc. Go to Start -&gt; Run... and then type in 'gpedit.msc' and press enter. This is effectively the Policies Editor, and it comes in handy often. For example, if you hate CD autoplay like I do and want to permanently disable it, you can use this tool to do so. Just run gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration -&gt; Administrative Templates -&gt; System. In here you can see the value 'Turn Off Autoplay'. Right-click on it and then click 'Properties'.<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Increasing options in add/remove programs: </b></u><br /> Not a fan of MSN Messenger? don't want Windows Media Player on your system? Fair enough, but if you go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, by default none of Windows XP's 'built in' programs are visible. it's fairly easy to change, though... just open the file X:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf (where X: is the drive letter where Windows XP is installed) in Notepad. You should see a section of the file something like this: <br /> [Components]<br />NtComponents=ntoc.dll,NtOcSetupProc,,4<br />WBEM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,wbemoc.inf,hide,7<br />Display=desk.cpl,DisplayOcSetupProc,,7<br />Fax=fxsocm.dll,FaxOcmSetupProc,fxsocm.inf,,7<br />NetOC=netoc.dll,NetOcSetupProc,netoc.inf,,7<br />iis=iis.dll,OcEntry,iis.inf,,7<br />com=comsetup.dll,OcEntry,comnt5.inf,hide,7<br />dtc=msdtcstp.dll,OcEntry,dtcnt5.inf,hide,7<br />IndexSrv_System = setupqry.dll,IndexSrv,setupqry.inf,,7<br />TerminalServer=TsOc.dll, HydraOc, TsOc.inf,hide,2<br />msmq=msmqocm.dll,MsmqOcm,msmqocm.inf,,6<br />ims=imsinsnt.dll,OcEntry,ims.inf,,7<br />fp_extensions=fp40ext.dll,FrontPage4Extensions,fp40ext.inf,,7<br />AutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,au.inf,hide,7<br />msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7<br />RootAutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,rootau.inf,,7<br />IEAccess=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,ieaccess.inf,,7<br /> This is a list of all components installed at the moment. I've taken the example of MSN Messenger - the program entry called 'msmsgs', third-last line. You can see the word 'hide' highlighted - this is the string which tells Windows not to display the component in the Add/Remove Programs list. Fix this up by simply deleting the word 'hide' like so:<br /> msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7<br /> To this:<br /> msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7<br /> Now, after restarting, you should be able to see MSN Messenger in the Add/Remove Programs list. If you want to be able to quickly view and remove all components, simply open the sysoc.inf file and do a global find and replace for the word ",hide" and replace it with a single comma ",". <br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Automatically Kill Programs At Shutdown:</b></u><br /> don't you hate it when, while trying to shut down, you get message boxes telling you that a program is still running? Making it so that Windows automatically kills applications running is a snap. Simply navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop directory in the Registry, then alter the key AutoEndTasks to the value 1. <br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Speeding Up Share Viewing:</b></u><br /> This is a great tweak. Before I found it, I was always smashing my head against the table waiting to view shares on other computers. Basically, when you connect to another computer with Windows XP, it checks for any Scheduled tasks on that computer - a fairly useless task, but one that can add up to 30 seconds of waiting on the other end - not good! Fortunately, it's fairly easy to disable this process. First, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace in the Registry. Below that, there should be a key called {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}. Just delete this, and after a restart, Windows will no longer check for scheduled tasks - mucho performance improvement!<br /> <b><u><br /></u></b><br /><b><u>Create a Shortcut to Lock Your Computer</u> </b><br /> Leaving your computer in a hurry but you don't want to log off? You can double-click a shortcut on your desktop to quickly lock the keyboard and display without using CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screen saver. To create a shortcut on your desktop to lock your computer: Right-click the desktop. Point to New, and then click Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard opens. In the text box, type the following: rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation Click Next. Enter a name for the shortcut. You can call it "Lock Workstation" or choose any name you like. Click Finish. You can also change the shortcut's icon (my personal favorite is the padlock icon in shell32.dll). To change the icon: Right click the shortcut and then select Properties. Click the Shortcut tab, and then click the Change Icon button. In the Look for icons in this file text box, type: Shell32.dll. Click OK. Select one of the icons from the list and then click OK You could also give it a shortcut keystroke such CTRL+ALT+L. This would save you only one keystroke from the normal command, but it could be more convenient.<br /><br /><span>Note: Before you can change any registry take backup.</span><br />

What does this message on my pc mean?Error in c: windows \ system32 \ spool\ drivers \ w32x86\3\dlcd time. Dll missing entry: run dll entry


Time.dll was probably installed along with some software that came with the HP printer.
As time.dll is shared with other applications HP may have removed it during the uninstalling process and either some oter application is looking for it or a command to open it has been left behind.
As you say the Dell printer is working well so have alook in your StartUp folder (Documents and Settings/User/Start Menu/Programs?StartUp) and delete any reference to that file of HP Printer.
Also look under StartUp by Clicking Start > Run and typing msconfig and uncheck andy reference to HP or the file.
If it turns out another pallication needs the file then reinstall that application.

go to start, run, type in msconfig and press enter. msconfig is the command to run an application to control startup items. Go to the startup tab at the top of this window, and uncheck any unnecessary items so they won't startup at reboot. If you are unsure what a process is, just google the name and it should give you details as to what application it belongs to, and you can make judgement if you need it or not. I would uncheck anything I wouldn't recognize.

Dll driving me nuts


Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.

Error message on startup


PRISMSVR.EXE is a process related to the PRISM Wireless lan hardware.. Reinstallig the lan cards software should solve it )though you might have to configure it all over again - take note of your current settings).
As for SSLEYA32.dll, if it was the spyware version of this file, it was problably deleted by your antivirus, but the registry call to startup is still there. In MSCONFIG you should be able to take care of that.
On the other hand, this file might be related to OpenSSL Toolkit from The OpenSSL Project. If you are not using this, then be glad it disappeared.
