    No luck with trying your Comcast solution. Any other ideas I might try?

  • Sheldon Lewis Feb 05, 2007

    To: tomj23. The message reads as follows.
    Header:SdcSchedulerWindow. Ending Program Please Wait. If you choose to end the program immediatly you willlose any unsaved data. To end now click end now.

    Thats all.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I might add that I have recently installed wirelss and my server is new in this area. Its call HOTWIRE. They are (I think they said ) micro fibre for the Internet and Dish for the TV. If that makes sense or makes a diff.

  • Sheldon Lewis Feb 06, 2007

    Its a new building and I had no choice. Noone else has wired as yet.

  • Sheldon Lewis Feb 06, 2007

    Look, I really hate to be a pain in the ass and I do appreciate the time you have taken to help but it didn't work. listed were only two items that had the word scheduler in it. One read "Jusched" and the other "power reg scheduler". I unchecked both (one at a time) and neither worked after reboot etc. Once again a very big thanks for all your help.

Shelew, Do you by chance have Comcast High-speed access? ?sdc-Scheduler? is a program that is part of Comcast?s software installation and specifically is a diagnostic support program Comcast techs use if needed. If you do have the software installed chances are good you?ve never used it and won?t need it. If that is the case you can uninstall it and make your problem go away. Go to the Windows Add/Remove programs utility, look for a program called ?ComcastSUPPORT?, highlighting it and clicking on the Remove button. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

    Can you give me the exact wording of the error message and when it appears?

  • Anonymous Feb 06, 2007

    Are you running Windows XP?

  • Anonymous Feb 06, 2007

    - Click on Start then run.
    - In the Open field enter MSConfig and click on the OK button
    - In the system configuration utility click on the startup tab.
    - In the startup column scan through it and look for the ?sdc-Scheduler?.
    - When/if you find it look just to the right in the Command column and record what you find here. This is the physical path to where this program lives on your hard drive and may give us an idea later what it is.
    - As a test remove the checkmark to the far left of the sdc-Scheduler. This will keep the program from running when we reboot and test, hopefully.
    - Click on the ok button, and you will be prompted to restart. Accept it reboot and use the computer as you would normally, trying to get the error message to appear again.

    Let us know what you find.

Many errors surface soon after you install new hardware or software because conflicts often occur between the new product and previously installed components. To put an end to such messages, you might be able to uninstall the program or hardware (and hardware drivers) and then restart your computer to an errorless state.

If you do find that removing a new product eliminates errors, you might have to do some research to figure out the source of the conflict before you can reinstall the new product. Check the manufacturer's Web site for updated drivers, search support areas for known conflicts, and contact technical support for assistance. Sometimes tech support gurus can help you tweak a setting to end software conflicts.

Let it finish. Developing new computing habits can also limit the number of error messages you see. When you first start up your PC, let the hard drive come to a complete stop before starting a task; this lets your computer load all necessary drivers and operating system components necessary for efficient and error-free operation. The same concept works for your other programs. Let each program start up or shut down completely before you move on to another job.

10 reasons why PCs crash-You must know tip 4

4 Hard disk drives

After a few weeks, the information on a hard disk drive starts to become piecemeal or fragmented. It is a good idea to defragment the hard disk every week or so, to prevent the disk from causing a screen freeze. Go to

* Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Defragmenter

This will start the procedure. You will be unable to write data to the hard drive (to save it) while the disk is defragmenting, so it is a good idea to schedule the procedure for a period of inactivity using the Task Scheduler.

The Task Scheduler should be one of the small icons on the bottom right of the Windows opening page (the desktop).

Some lockups and screen freezes caused by hard disk problems can be solved by reducing the read-ahead optimisation. This can be adjusted by going to

* Start-Settings-Control Panel-System Icon-Performance-File System-Hard Disk.

Hard disks will slow down and crash if they are too full. Do some housekeeping on your hard drive every few months and free some space on it. Open the Windows folder on the C drive and find the Temporary Internet Files folder. Deleting the contents (not the folder) can free a lot of space.

Empty the Recycle Bin every week to free more space. Hard disk drives should be scanned every week for errors or bad sectors. Go to

* Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-ScanDisk

Otherwise assign the Task Scheduler to perform this operation at night when the computer is not in use.

We have P3 running on a Windows XP Sp3 machine. At least once a week this program crashes when the engineer goes to hit the schedule button in P3 it literally freezes everything and the only way to...

I dont think this has much to do with Primavera itself.. Ive experienced this alot on our network with other "older" software applications that are 16 bit programs. First find the launch icon for P3 and right click it, under the compatibility option set it for an older platform "win98". It may be related to how the scheduler allocates memory when it runs. (its probably just the scheduler application part of P3 thats a problem) Might be useful to try and locate scheduler in the P3 program folder and do the compatibility mode setting for its launch icon too. Other causes may be restrictions in place if you are part of a windows domain network (ask your network admin) as group policy settings can prevent 16 bit applications from running. And lastly Ive seen Group policy folder permission settings blocking users from certain windows 16 bit program modules as well, all depending on how the program was made. Talk with your network guy, ask him if you are part of a domain GPO, if yes. look into the permission issue. If this is a Stand alone home style computer, Not joined to any network / domain ect. look at my first few comments. oh ya, also verify DEP "Data Execution Prevention" is not enabled for this program. Hope that helps, please write a comment if you need any clarification on anything above. Gurvy

I have a folder in my D: drive and i wanted to move it to my external harddiskso when i tried to move itafter few seconds it shows cyclic redundancy check

I hope your folder must be a partition not a folder. If so, it's not possible to move all the files with the drive name, but it's possible to copy/paste. Since it's a part of your system (virtually or physically) you'll get the message. There's also another condition, suppose if you had installed some programs or windows on the D drive, it's not possible to copy/paste all the files since they are being executed (if you install only third party or terminable programs after you "end" the running programs).
I would recommend you to copy folder by folder not the whole drive at once.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hvr1600 scheduler problem.

Scheduler window is cut off or to big to click on the Save or Cancel buttons? Please double check that your system display DPI settings are not over 96. Open the display properties of your system under control panel. Click on the settings tab and then advance. Look for DPI settings; make sure it's not over ninety-six. If it's over that bring it back to 96 and restart your computer.
