  • 1: 0x80042318__2 system restore error: Windows Media Player 11 will not work open__3: Internet Explorer 8 crashes when opening.

    I have these three questions of program after reinstallation of Windows Vista and tried (mostly unsuccessful) using Windows Easy Transfer to move and reinstall my programs and files. My computer had some problems before start, (it would be almost always gives me the blue screen at startup and go into Startup Repair). The Startup Repair wouldn't fix anything and just lose about 20 minutes of my time. Finally, he wouldn't even load at all and the Startup Repair did not help so I decided to reinstall Windows Vista. It worked perfectly until what stupidly, I decided to try and use Windows easy transfer if everything goes well "to" my programs this new copy of Windows Vista.

    So now my questions are: Windows Media Player 11 does not open. I don't see a thumbnails of videos that would open with Windows Vista either. Oddly, although I can use Windows Media Center very well. I also installed Quicktime player and it seems to work perfectly.
    It was not catastrophic but especially a gene. I use VLC player to manage most of my videos very well, but love using WMP before.

    Second: I can't create restore points at all. Once I try, I get this error message:
    "The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
    An error was detected in the copy Service VSS (Volume Shadow). The problem occurred while trying to connect with the VSS writers. Please check the event system service and the VSS service are running and look for errors related to event logs. (Ox80042318) Please try again. »

    Finally, for some reason any after the transfer, eventually after Internet Explorer automatically updated it will completely freeze when I open it. This is for me the prompt to open the session previously was crushed, and if I try that or close the dialog to open just the home page, it will freeze completely, even the blue circle next to the name of the tab to load.
    Fortunately, I have Firefox and Google Chrome installed, both work very well.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm not entirely fretting on IE8 and WMP 11 but I feel really that less stressed if I know that I have a System Restore Point in case my previous numbers start to happen again.

    Here are my system specs, in case that dans le cas ou c' est is somehow useful.

    Windows Easy Transfer moves not installed third-party programs on the whole, he does that move their settings, your files and settings Windows.

    As you have just reinstalled Vista, where were your old programs and files (on which machine) when you used Windows Easy Transfer, you still have access to them?

    You have to maybe do the reinstall once more but forget your settings and just manually copy all of your data?  This way you will give you restart with no old parameters of any other machine?

    You can also consult the third-party program (costs a little money), but he can move everything, including the programs installed.

    Hi martham

    Thanks for posting in the Microsoft answers site!

    It is a standard error message coded in the game that occurs when MTE there is a mistake, for all sorts of reasons. It is a game crash, not a drive failure. You don't need to upgrade to a new version of the game. If you have downloaded a lot of tilesets and backgrounds, clean those out of your game directory. And if you have a large number of layouts in your Favorites list, delete the 'my' file that is located in your game directory

    In addition, check the compatibility of the game with Windows 7 from the link below:

    Try to install the game in compatibility mode and check if this solves the problem.

  • How to do a system restore in Windows 7

    Original title: turn on restoration of the system in windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit edition


    Before posting my question that I searched for information on how to start the system restore of this forum.  However, after reading several posts I'm not sure what to do.  A post suggests accessing the system of Protection, by selecting a drive and then clicking on configure and selecting one of the options.  In this case I'm not sure which one to choose: recovery or C.  For the moment I turned on recovery (that was turned off) and chosen for the restoration of the points, but I feel that this can be a problem.

    Another answer suggested turning on the shadow copy of Volume in the systems that I did too.  Can you please give me step by step instructions on how to run properly on the system restore.  Thank you.

  • Troubleshooting-new HP with Windows 7 spectrum XT, does not connect to the WiFi at home?

    So I just got my brand new HP ENVY spectrum XT Ultrabook with Windows 7 Home Premium installed. 64 bit. I start it, everything works fine, except that when I connect to my WiFi at home. I tried to connect, entered my password, but it does not connect. Also tried the easy connection on the router. No luck. I checked my old laptop which runs on Windows Vista to see if WiFi worked always, and this is where it gets interesting. I was able to browse the internet and internet worked, but suddenly Windows informed me that "another computer uses the same IP address" and it stops my internet capabilities on my old laptop. I connected my cable ethernet on both computers, and it works for both computers when it is plugged. While that plugged, I discovered that I could create my own IP address, which I did on my old laptop and so far that seems to have solved the problem. However, my DESIRE is always not connecting to WiFi. Any advice?

    Hi ZachRhodes3,

    ·         You get the error message?

    Follow these methods.

    Method 1: Temporarily disable the security software .

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time that your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Method 2: Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Start the computer in safe mode with network and check if the problem persists.

    Step 2: If the problem does not persist in safe mode with networking, perform a clean boot to see if there is a software conflict as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: After completing the steps in the clean boot troubleshooting, follow step 7 the link to start the computer to a Normal startupmode.

    Method 3: Follow the steps in the article.

    AFAIK the Tecra M5 came with the graphics card Intel or nVidia.

    On laptops with nVidia graphics card, you can set a different option in nVidia Desktop Manager. for example allow several computers to office
    You should find it in the control panel.

    Unfortunately, I put t know exactly where the parameters are placed in the nVidia Manager because this notebook was shipped only with Windows XP but I'm sure that you will find.

  • Problem with Windows Fax and Scan does not connect to the Internal Modem

    Just got a new Acer Aspire 5542-5416 computer laptop with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium, 4 GB of Ram and a 320 GB hard drive. It has a 56 k modem integrated fax of like the old days, but I can't make it work. The laptop did not come with the Windows CD.

    If I open the program Windows Fax and Scan, it is not able to connect to the modem. Basically, if I click on tools > fax accounts > Add..., I get a box with 2 choices: to connect to a fax modem or connect to a fax on my network server. When I want to connect a fax modem I get a message that says: an error has occurred. Please, try the operation again later or contact your administrator. It allows me to do this then just clock OK and them I'm right where I started.

    While in Windows Fax and Scan, if I click on tools > fax settings... nothing happens. No menu settings or anything ever appears. Quite simply, the program does nothing. If I try tools > Fax Status Monitor... I get a box that says entrance exam status, ready to receive a fax. It has a blue progress bar as something takes over, but it gets about 1/100 to and never goes further or ends. There is no box, but there are 3 buttons: view details, answer call or cancel. If I hit details, I get an empty list. If I click on answer call I get an error that says that the fax service is not available.

    If I try tools > Options, general tab has only a single option box is checked: play a sound when come it to new messages. If I try to print a Word or PDF file to a fax using Fax in the printer list, I get the same box with 2 choices: to connect to a fax modem or connect to a fax on my network server, but I get the same error message: an error has occurred. Please, try the operation again later or contact your administrator.

    I've searched the Internet high and low for a solution but no luck. There is a lot of discussion about this problem, but none of the solutions work for me. If I go to Device Manager, the modem is working properly and if I click on the Modem query on the Diagnostics tab, it seems to be able to communicate with the modem very well. I tried to roll back the driver and updated again and still no luck, same problem. If I go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Fax\Accounts in the registry, there is no subkeys under the folder accounts I can delete.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem? Is there any solution for this? I did a Windows Update last night and has not yet solve it. Thank you.

    Sorry about that.
