A Program Or Firewall Is Not Compatible With This Version Of Windows


I am having a reoccurring windows security alert and  issue with my windows 7 home premium edition.
I have a dell studio1737 laptop. I get a windows security alert warning stating "a program or firewall is not compatible with this version of windows"

Name: microsoft console based script host
Publisher: microsoft corp
Path: c:windowssystem32cscript.exe

I also run norton internet security on my laptop. I am also quite careful about my online activities so i am pretty confident it is not a malware issue. But i could also be wrong.
I have contacted norton support and after removing and reinstalling norton is 2010 a couple of times. They advised me to contact microsoft support for assistance because they could not rectify the issue i am having.

Dell support have not been much help either (nothing new there). I have searched extensively for a solution and an answer but i have unfortunately not found anything that has helped me. Can anybody here help me with this issue. Because i am not filled with confidence at the moment about my laptops security? Also if anybody could give me any information about what cscript.exe is and why it is causing these problems.

Error - The Version Of This File Is Not Compatible With Version Of Windows

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computers system information to see whether you need an x86 (32 bit) or x64 (64 bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

I have a large cd collection published by national geographic. The difficulty lies in installing the program that displays the pages. The program installer ends in . Ins. These picture cd's have been produced by mindscape. When you try to contact them, they are based in france, and it is impossible to obtain support for this product. Is there any way of getting the installer on the cd to do its job of providing a means of turning the 'pages'?

Error - This Version Of The File Is Not Compatible With Version Of Windows

My error message is: "this version of the file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or an x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. "

I've tried running the program in question (castle of the winds) in every compatibility mode that is on the list and all it does is give me that error message every time. Other people have managed to get the program working, so i know it does work on windows 7, but i can't see to get it to work for me. Help?

System Recovery Option Not Compatible With Version Of Windows

Was organizing the sata connectors in case disconnecting/reconnecting a few hdds, one with the windows 7 64 bit os (h1). Then disconnected all hdds leaving a new one and installed windows 7 64 bit on it (h2) with only it connected. Performed fine. Disconnected it (h2) and reconnected the first one (h2) and windows 7 would not launch, so inserted os disc and it would repair something (i have no idea what as it did not indicate, i found that to be particular helpful by ms) and then windows 7 would launch. From there on, any time i switched between the two drives each having the respective os (h1 or h2), the os disc would need to be used to repair the unspecified problem and launch win. Did this a few times until the first os (h1) the disc no longer could 'repair' what ever needed to be fixed and the famous message follows:

"This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows"

The real (dis)interesting part to all of this, is that yes important data is off on drives other than the os drive though did have a few files with mostly shortcuts on the desktop. In accessing the first os (h1) via the second (h2), after fighting through the "access is denied" and "ownership rights" ual busines, only half of the files that were on the desktop are actually in the desktop folder/directory. Is it worth fixing the os on h1 to get into windows to see if these files magically reappear or is what i'm seeing directly in the folder all that remains. What happened to files that were on the desktop and what is it with all of these fundamental os/hdd issues with windows 7?

This Installation Disc Isn't Compatible With Your Version Of Windows

I'm having a problem installing windows 7 64-bit. I had windows xp 32-bit, but then i "upgraded" to windows vista 64-bit. After i did that, i realized that i hated it, so i went back to 32-bit xp. Now when i try to install windows 7 i get the message "this installation disc isn't compatible with your version of windows. To upgrade, you need the correct installation disc. For more information, check your computer's system information. To install a new copy of windows, restart(boot) your computer using the installation disc, and then select custom(advanced). I have run 64-bit before, and my computer is capable of running 64-bit windows. The disc i have is from the it office at my school.

Firewall And Sharing

I have a program that is unable to work while windows 7 firewall is enabled. I have tried restoring the firewall to default and then repeatably allowing the program access. I have tried the more advanced options and they still do not work. I have resorted to installing a third party software firewall and behold i have found out i cannot disable windows 7 firewall and disable network sharing and file sharing. This is super poor design. I do not want networking sharing or file sharing on at all. What am i supposed to do in this situation?

Cannot Enable Win 7 Firewall

I recently purchased a new hp laptop with windows 7 home premium. However, i cannot activate my firewall. When i go into my firewall settings from the control panel, it doesn't even allow me to click the 'turn windows firewall on or off' option to the left. Now, it stated in my firewall settings that "these settings are being managed by vendor application norton firewall provider".

So i thought perhaps my norton firewall was interfering with it, so i turned off its smart firewall. But i still can't turn on my windows firewall. In fact, i cannot click most of the options in my firewall settings at all (turn firewall on/off, restore defaults, change settings etc). The only thing i can click is the advanced settings and troubleshoot.

Firewall Blocks Scanner

Spend several minutes with brother (model mfc-490cw). It's a 3 in 1. It is set perfectly. My computer is shown on the list were to send the scan to, but the connection doesn't go through. Able to scan from my computer to printer. If i disabled firewall, works. Try to add brother programs, don't find the right to add obviously (and the tech either). Was working just fine with vista! For now, only have config. Problems with windows 7. I don't think that removing my firewalls is the right answer.

Firewall Access - Bittorrent

On my computer i have bittorrent and for the longest time it was working perfectly fine. I was able to download torrents quickly and easily but recently i haven't been able to download any at all. I get this message "error opening windows firewall: 0x80070005 access is denied". I never got it before this just randomly started happening. I am not the greatest with computers so i was wondering if anyone could provide a step by step process to solving this problem.

Some information that may be important: bittorrent is installed on my laptop and i use a wireless connection to the internet.

Firewall Blocking File Sharing

Came into the office today (two computers on the network) and one of the computers could not see the other on the network (it was not a problem the other way around). I went through some troubleshooting, and figured out it was the firewall on the one computer blocking access. The firewall is controlled by macafee virus protection. So, i turned off the firewall, and bingo, i can now see each computer from both directions. The problem is now i don't have any firewall protection. Any reason the settings on the firewall would have been different today than they were yesterday, and how do i turn the firewall back on while allowing the file sharing to continue on as before over the network?

Disable Windows Firewall " Stealth Mode "

Is there any way to disable "stealth mode" on the windows 7 firewall? I want windows to send icmp unreachable packets. According to this technet article, stealth mode is enabled by default, but there is no information on how to disable it. It was possible to control this on xp. Allow meto pre-answer the obvious questions about my question.

(1) i've already googled it. I found other people asking the same question, but no answers.
(2) i really do want to disable stealth mode. With all due respect, i'm not asking for advice or opinions on the wisdom of my choice.

Aol 9.5 Compatible?

Just upgraded to windows 7 on my 64 bit hp quad processor with 8 gig ram and 700 gigb free disk space. I've been using aol 9. 5 software which is supposed to be compatible and ran well on vista sp2. Now i get error messages regarding low memory and that view point media player isn't loaded (and won't load). After 4 sessions with aol tech support they tell me the program downloads but isn't installing correctly and that it's a windows 7 problem. Although aol doesn't show up in the uninstall feature of the control panel it does show up in program file (x86) in my computer.

It will not allow me to delete it. As it stands now, although i can obtain my email on aol, i am unable to use the browser inside aol or access my favorite list nor answer or send email. Aol also doesn't fully load and i continue to get error messages regarding low memory and the view point media player. As it stands now i am unable to even delete aol from my computer. I have been using aol thru internet explorer but the "favorites" list is corrupted and is unusable. Obviously aol isn't willing to help further. What is going on  and how can i either get the program to work or at the least uninstall and remove the aol program from my computer.

Having been a windows user since the days of 3. 1 i find that it is an increasing task every time microsoft brings out a new version of the os and windows 7 is no exception as this is not the only incompatibility. I am beginning to rethink my loyalty to microsoft.

Can microsoft offer any help or solutions ?

Is Labelflash Compatible With Win7?

Does anyone know how to work labelflash in windows 7, or which program i should be using. Labelflash, for those who don't know, is like light-scribe but far superior in quality. It is a laser image label burned right onto the disk. The problem is i can't get it to work with windows 7 even in compatibility mode.

The labelflash website provides a free program, for windows vista and lower, but only allows you to use their own images. I want to use my images to personalize my disks. It can be done because, like with my lightscribe, i have done it prior to win7. Any help on finding a program ($$ not a problem) that will allow me to continue using labelflash with win7 to create my own images and not factory supplied images on labels will be greatly appreciated.

Media Player 12 In-compatible

I recently installed windows 7 onto my laptop, upgrading from windows vista. I had windows media player 11 on vista and i understand windows media player 12 comes with windows 7. However, the first time i tried playing some music, windows media player 12 was just a desktop shortcut. The program had deleted itself some how. This would not be a problem if i could download another copy. But the two windows media packs for kn and n windows both say they are incompatible with my computer. Can anyone help? Or must i abandon my music listen on my computer?
