    Hi Mike

    Mainly having trouble with shortcut links.

    eg. 1.

    if a link is sent with an email I cannot access it....

    an error box appears stating "Application not found".

    To elaborate on this...I received an email from FIXYA of your clarification request. It asked to "Click here" to respond to the request. I was unable to do so as the error message appeared "Application not found".


    When accessing "Windows Help and Support" from the Start menu and then clicking on Online support or any other links directing to online the following error message appears....

    Script: c:/Windows\Help\OEM\scripts\LaunchHPPP.jse

    Line: 56

    Char: 1

    Error: Automation server can't create object

    Code: 800A01AD

    Source: Microsoft JScript runtime error

    Thankyou for your help.

    Hi there,

    A net link or a shortcut?

    Which link?

    I can get you through either way, but I need some detail to help.

    Tell me what you can, OK?

Hello Anica,

What an excellent, fact filled description. Thank you!! I was going to say, 'You have no idea how much that helps'. But I have a feeling you do have a pretty good idea.

If at any point during this process you feel you need clarification or the instruction doesn't make sense, Stop and tell me. We will start over if needed.

Let's address the shortcuts first.

  • Run Windows Explorer
  • Click Tools (Menu Bar)
  • Click Folder Options
  • Click the File Types Tab (It may take a few moments to search)
  • Leave this open for the time being.
  • Select one of the non-functioning shortcuts and LeftClick it
  • Click Properties - A window will open.
  • Depending on what the shortcut does, there may be multiple or just a single tab in the window. What we need is the file type, usually found in the General Tab.
  • You need to let me know the type for us to continue with the actual fix.
  • So the info needed is Which shortcut, the file type, the error you get (application not found, etc)
  • We can do one at a time until you're comfortable, or batch a few at one time.
  • By the time we are through, you will be able to teach other people.
I'll be looking for your response

    Hello again Anica,

    On your 2nd example the file type is .JSE

    • Go back to the File Types screen

    • Scroll down until you find JSE

    • Click the Advanced Button

    • In the Actions box, select Open

    • Click Edit. Another window will open

    • The Application to perform..... should be: C:\WINDOWS\System32\WScript.exe "%1" %*

    • Lower down, the Application should be: wscript

    • The Use DDE box should be checked
    These file types and the actions associated with them determine what the computer attempts to do when you double click on a file, link, image, whatever.

    Once defined, all files of that type will now work.
    Let me know your progress.

AegisE5.dll was not found.

The file bcmwltry.exe is the tray bar process for the Broadcom Corporation Wireless Network software.

You can try eliminating the program from start up.
Click on Start >>Run, type "msconfig" (without the quotes), then click on OK.

When the System Configuration Utility loads, click on the "Start Up" tab, then scroll down to the "bcmwlt.exe" entry and UNCHECK the box next to it.

Click on Apply, then OK, and the computer will need to be restarted. Do it. Upon restart, you'll see a System Configuration Utility warning. Simply choose the option to stop it from repeatedly opening.

This will be fixing your problem
Have a great day!

In this situation, I recommend you to uninstall the HP Quicktouch application from the Programs and Features which is found in the Control Panel in Vista by following the instructions below:
Go to Control Panel and double click the Programs and Features icon.
In the window that appears, locate the application with the name HP Quicktouch or Quicktouch and click on the Uninstall button.
This will uninstall the Quicktouch application from the Notebook because of which we get the indicator when we increase/decrease or mute audio in the Notebook.
Now, restart the Notebook and download the latest version of HP Quicktouch application from the link provided below and install in your Notebook :

NOTE : Clicking on the link may give an error message. Copy entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new web browser and press Enter.

Please save the file in the Notebook and double click it after the download completes to install the drivers.

The display that appears while adjusting the volume using the Quick Launch buttons should dissappear correctly after installing this application.
However, if the issue with the Volume Display persists, I recommend you to uninstall it and not to reinstall it again.
Hope this helps...
