Cannot run any application system as anything in the administration tools, network and sharing Center, Device Manager. No problem running the applications Office, IE, etc.

Vista Ultimate, 32-bit, SP2 had worked perfectly for two months. Machine set up to now and when started the first time, no network connection and my video wallpaper stops with an error message that says to reboot. The 2nd restart, I get internet connectivity, no wallpaper at all and no access to system applications that are listed in the title line.

I can open Documents and navigate around, click computer and see the disks, etc., right click on computer and view the properties, but it shows no RAM and processor. If I click on Device Manager on this window, it crashes just forever unless I have kill with Task Manager.

I had Windows Live Onecare on this machine and it expired during the period, it was closed. No problem... I plan to install MSE.

Originally, I installed a smaller version of Vista of CD (still have it) but upgraded to Ultimate online and is not a product for this upgrade CD.

I need to know where to start on fixing Vista so that it works correctly.

Thank you.

Hello

·        Where you upgrade the system for full vista?

It is better that you have the Vista Ultimate DVD, so I suggest you ask the DVD from the dealer.

I suggest you to check in the Event Viewer logs and let us know the exact error.

Open event viewer

http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/open-Event-Viewer

Method 1:

I suggest you to do a scan of the SFC. File system (CFS) Auditor verifies that all Windows 7 system files are where they should be as they are by default and not corrupted, changed or damaged.

a. Click Start, click principally made programs, accessories, right-click on command prompt and select run as administrator.

b. click on continue or provide administrator credentials if prompted.

c. in the type in the following command prompt window and press ENTER:

d. sfc/scannow

e. you should see the following message on the screen:

§ Begin the analysis of the system. This process will take time.

§ Beginning verification phase of system scan.

f. % verification complete.

g. once the scan is complete, a test to see if the problem you are experiencing is resolved or not.

For more information, see the article mentioned below.

  • Cannot turn off or disable password protected sharing the network and sharing Center

    I'm trying to turn some pretty simple sharing of files between our windows PC (two portable minicomputers running under XP, a desk and a laptop running vista). File sharing functions between the XP computers. However, I am simply unable to influence the "password protected sharing setting" in the network and sharing Center. I check the option to turn it off and I get a click through UAC dialog window, the mouse cursor turns for a short time while as if windows is pretending to do something, but the password protected sharing setting is always on.

    Looks like you have a pretty serious fault there.  Safe to assume that you have all the backups?

  • I can't open anything in the Control Panel, network and sharing Center or profile management, I have accidentally changed something?

    Don't know if I've accidentally changed something or not in my profile, I just want to know how to fix it

    I'm sorry but you did not just provide more information other than say in effect "it's broken". I can't possibly guess what is happening with your computer based on what you wrote. Probably the best course of action would be for you to take it to a qualified computer technician (it won't be a type BigComputerStore/GeekSquad of the place). Otherwise:

    The first Question of troubleshooting: If the problem is new, what has changed between the time things worked and the time they do not have?

    The second issue of Windows troubleshooting: what is the status of virus/malware of the machine? If you think it's clean, what programs (and versions) allows you to determine this?

    Make sure that the computer is clean:

  • Help: Cannot open any application "Safari" because PowerPC is not supported on the current computer

    Hi all

    Until I look crazy, my Mac Book Pro (end 2011) is still running. Today, I already had some running applications (Safari, Virtual Box, etc.). When I tried to open a new window, Safari said "no internet connection".  I shut Safari and attempted to restart.

    "Failed to start Safari because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."

    He then removed Safari from the dock.

    Environment:

    MacBook Pro (late 2011)

    68 GB free on 700 GB HDD

    El Captain (10.11.4)

    I tried to open Contacts. Same error message.

    To be clear: these are the built-in applications on the Mac.

    While I download application files, I'm fairly warned about scams and not did something recently on the machine.

    I hesitate to restart where it tells me that my entire machine is a Power PC application and is no longer supported.

    Has anyone ever heard talk about something like that?

    Thank you

  • Cannot move anything in the browser - icons, tabs, etc.

    I've just upgraded to Firefox 12.0 and have found that I can't do anything to drag anywhere. At first, I thought it was a problem with the Menu Editor extension - I was trying to reposition a component menu, just after doing the upgrade to v11.0. In the Options window the Menu editor that can be done simply by dragging, but it did not work.

    I spent the time wrong with it until I realized that the other drag-type features do not work. In order to found:

    1. Cannot reorganize (drag / move) tabs.
    2. Cannot move the tab stop tab bar to open in another window.
    3. Cannot reorganize bookmarks and favicons on personal bar. Open the context menu of bookmarks toolbar and its commands work.
    4. Cannot move tabs to the bar Favorites or folder.
    5. [Window to customize open] cannot drag items to or from the window customize and cannot rearrange or move the Navigation bar or the bar Add on icons.

    There may be questions focused more on the trail, but they are the only ones I can think of and have found. I don't know if I'd known, on the top of my head, extension interfaces accommodate slide they would fail to work. Basically, nothing moves when I click on it with the cursor and try to drag. I don't get any feedback as circle with slash graphic.

    This may be a conflict extension but before I start to switch to many ad - ons that someone might know if this is a new feature setting, I don't know, that was the case before, when I updated.

    I've also seen a recent thread open when the person has a similar problem (but on a Mac - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/926256?s=can%27t+drag+and+drop & r = 11 & e = & did = s). I wonder if there are perhaps other elements of that this person also cannot move, but not has not yet discovered, and if this problem and mine is perhaps related.

    After following the instructions with the following...

    ... I determined that my theme or a corrupt localstore.rdf were the cause of my problems.

    Then begins the troubleshooting extensions (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Troubleshooting-extensions-themes?redirectlocale=en-US & redirectslug = Troubleshooting + extensions + and + themes).

    Hardware acceleration has been eliminated as a cause as it has never been activated.

    It turns out that, like the Mac user in the thread I linked above, Torbutton has been the cause of the problem. I thought that it unlikely just because it seemed so not related to how the problem was evident.

    Torbutton was not invalid he's turned off in the browser, so I considered it "not active".

    This message was posted on the first page of the Torbutton website last spring: "now that the Tor Browser Bundle includes a patched Firefox version, and because we have not enough resources to deal with the Firefox version developer accelerated schedule, the Torbutton toggle model is not recommended. "Users should use Tor Browser Bundle, do not install Torbutton themselves."

    Their "Active Torbutton Tickets" page includes two of the problems I had like individual bugs, "Torbutton add-on interferes with the buttons on toolbar add-ons (including his own)" and «torbutton disables the ability to drag and save quick links»

    They go to a variety of reasons, they no longer support the key in this blog (https://blog.torproject.org/blog/toggle-or-not-toggle-end-torbutton). Mainly for security reasons, partly because they cannot deal with the hourly output FF and last because users are reporting more broken features and incompatibilities with each new version of FF.
