Task Scheduler Under Administrator Tools

When i go into the task scheduler a message box appears which states "task background configsurveyor: the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with", when you click on the ok button it disappears, but it is comes up everytime you go into task scheduler. There no error code. I found a blogger who had a similar problem, but the instruction to fix it was for windows vista. I tried to follow the instructions and could not find the 'user_feed_synchronization' so i stopped. Is there a fix for windows 7 home edition, 32bit

Using Task Scheduler To Send An Email

How to use task scheduler to send an email? I have windows live mail + windows 7 i want my computer to send an email to someone on it's own. I opened task scheduler and created a new task using task scheduler to 'send and email'. The problem is that the program only asks me who it's to, who the email is from and what smtp server to use. It doesn't ask for my mail server log-in and username so in theory it would fail. And when it comes to send the message, currently it doesn't do anything without any error message. I have 2 email accounts setup in windows live mail but how do i tell the task scheduler program which email account to use and how to login to the account to send it?

App Data Folder Have 97gb

Why does app data folder have 97gb? My brand new computer (running windows 7 professional) shows that i have used 272gb. My user name accounts for 192 gb. My music takes up 95gb, but i could not figure out what else could be chewing up a lot of space. When i got to the folders within my user name, i see an app data folder that says it has 97gb. Are there really 97gb in there, or is that pretty much a mirror of my music and other files i have?  If not, where are the 95gb that i can't account for?

I have looked at all other folders under my user name, but don't see any others that have even 1 gb in them. I am guessing it must be a duplication of my music somewhere, but i cannot find it. I would really like to free up that disk space.

Cannot Create Folder In Users Me App Data

Cannot create folder in usersmeappdata.
Applies to: windows | windows 7 | programs

I have an old application that creates a temp folder in usersmeappdataemp

When i log in as a local user, the application has no problems creating the temp folders necessary to run. However, when i login with a domain login (with domain admin permissions) the application cannot create folders.

My domain is running at the windows 2003 functional level, and has schema 47 (2008) installed.

I have tried:

Taking ownership of the folder
Giving "everyone" full control of the profile
Being enterprise admin
Running as administrator
Uninstalling and reinstalling
Making the domain users members of the local administrator group.

None of these things has helped. I am at the end of what i know to do. I currently have a case open with the software provider, but this doesn't seem like a problem with their application, since it works just fine as a local user.

Dialogs Don't Appear On Old App With Dual Monitors

I've just started having a minor difficulty with my old photoshop 7 on windows 7: several of the dialogs no longer appear on screen (e.g. , The size of the image to save 1-12, lightness/darkness, and one or two others); "important" ones - like what to name the file, some add-ins & adjustments - show up just fine. It has not previously had a problem on the win7 system, so i don't presume that it is a problem with an incompatible old photoshop or necessarily with win7.

Have just added a second lg 23" dvi lcd monitor to win7 system, which is the only thing that has changed about the system since before this problem has arisen. Previously, i'd had one of the same monitor on dvi together with an older, analog flat-screen on vga as the secondary. Now, the new, second lg monitor is also on dvi, but unlike the original one, does not register on display properties as being "(digital). "I have tried switching which monitor (primary or secondary) that i display ps7 on, with no change; i have also swapped which of the monitors is primary & secondary, and also switched which ps7 displays on.

None of these combinations results in the dialog boxes showing up. The only other potential problem that i can think of at the moment is that i've added a new dvi cable that is different from the original one. The new cable is a "dual channel" (?) Dvi that has pins for all of the slots in the dvi connector, rather than only for about half of them (a "single channel?").

If anyone's familiar with what fry's electronics sells, these are $39. 95 and $29. 95 cables, respectively, the newer one by hp, the other a monster cable as i recall (like an idiot, i've thrown out the package). I'm going to mix this setup around a little bit and will post what effect, if any, changing cables and/or using only one monitor might have on this problem, but if anyone has a "fix" for it - maybe two "single channel" cables?

Outlook 2007 App Data Storage Location

When trying to move outlook. Pst from a vista computer to a win7 computer i had what i thought to be some strange issues. I easily located the . Pst on the old computer in the c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook directory. I wanted to paste this into the win7 computer. In outlook 2007 on the win 7 computer when i look under: tools > account settings > data files, it shows the . Pst file stored in; c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook, exactly the same location as on the vista computer.

However (on the win 7 computer) when i open windows explorer and look at that directory there is no "appdata" folder listed! I kinda solved this by copying my old . Pst to "my documents" and going into tools > account settings > data files and adding it as a new . Pst file then making it the default and deleting the other one. It appears to work fine. What continues to trouble me is why can't i see the c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook directory in windows explorer on my win 7 machine? It showed up just fine on the vista computer.

Adding Program Icon To Xp Mode App Menu

I installed an application w/in the xp mode virtual pc. After installation, there was an icon in the winxp application folder in my start menu. A few days later, i noticed it wasn't there anymore, but several other programs i had installed had icons there. I'm wondering if there is a tool that will allow an "after-the-fact" creation of one of these startup icons? I looked at the properties of the other shortcuts and see that it is pretty cryptic and contains a unique hex code, so i don't think this is something you can fat-finger.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. For the time being, i just uninstalled and reinstalled, but if it happens again, i'd like to save some time.

Win 7 64-bit App Installations Always Default To Program Files (x86)

I've just recently installed windows 7 64-bit. When i try installing 64-bit applications such as firefox namoroka or google picasa 64-bit the default is always to install in "program files (x86)". The default should be "program files" for 64-bit apps. Shouldn't windows detect that it's a 64-bit application and default the installation to "program files"?

Programs Do Not Respond Or Opened

When i try to open certain programs, they either do not open or they do not respond. The following programs i am having trouble with:

Ms paint (window does not open, does not appear in taskbar, and does not appear in task manager on the applications tab. However, mspaint.exe does appear in the processes tab. ) Windows live messenger (opens and signs in, but immediately stops responding). Windows installer (cannot install or uninstall) search indexer (always turned off, does not turn on) windows media player (window opens, content is white screen, stops responding).system restore (does not open, causes start menu to freeze) start menu (after trying to open system restore: click button and it opens, but menu is frozen; cannot click)

Sound also does not play. I unplugged the whole computer and surge protector while my computer was running, after i accidentally spilled some water on my desk. No water got into anything, however when i turned it back on all of the above problems were present. All of the problems are gone in safe mode, however the things i can do in that state are very limited. I have already scanned my computer for viruses with bitdefender antivirus 2010 and malwarebytes' anti-malware with no results. I have already tried to do system restore in safe mode (twice), but when it was done and the computer restarted i got a message saying it did not take effect (both times).

-
I have not received any error messages besides not responding. I ran error checker from the c drive's properties under the tools tab. Action center does not recognize any issues. Troubleshooting does not open either.
-

Disk defragmenter has the same problem as ms paint. (Window does not open, does not appear in taskbar, and does not appear in task manager on the applications tab. But dfrgui.exe does appear in the processes tab. )

Issue With Office 2007 Documents Opened In Ie8

Office 2007 documents opened in ie8 ask for windows user credentials three times. This issue only appears to occur with ie8 and office 2007. We have an internal website that accesses office documents in the same directory as the web page. When attempting to access the excel document from the webpage link an ie8 windows security dialog box appears asking the user to enter in their windows credentials. If the user enters their credentials they are asked two more times before the excel workbook opens. If the user just clicks cancel to the first of the windows security dialog boxes the excel workbook opens without any issues.

I've tried adding the site as a trusted site and this allows me to access the webpage without entering my user credentials, however, when accessing the excel document i am still prompted to enter my credentials. I did read somewhere the office 2007 attempts to access the network separately from ie8 when accessing network office files from ie8. I'm not sure if this is accurate or if there is a way around it.

It appears as though the credentials are not being passed to the server properly, which is what usually happens when ie8 asks three times, however, users do not get the authorization failed page after the third time as the spreadsheet opens. As i mentioned earlier this only appears to be an ie8 and office 2007 issue. Accessing the file using firefox or ie7 or accessing the file using ie8 with office 2003 installed doesn't prompt for windows security user credentials. Are there any solutions to this issue that we could implement?

Event Id 41 Task 63 Error

Since installing win7, home premium, 64bit, on a computer (6 days ago) i have been getting this error daily.computer initially used with win xp with no issues-this problem occurred after upgrading memory from 4 gb to 8 gb and installing win7 clean install. Memory passed memory test so i don't think the memory addition is the problem. Early instances involved bsod while running but after running system file checker which found and corrected errors i have not seen the bsod. Now the problem shows up on a cold start after what appeared to be a normal shut down.

Cannot Perform Any Administrator Task

Alright, i am running 32bit win 7 pro os. It was working almost great until now i see these messages everytime i do any administrative action like install, uninstall or run any application. "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect""the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation. ""You do not have sufficient access to uninstall . Application""an unexpected error has occurred. The troubleshooting wizard cannot continue"i cannot connect to the internet.

I cannot uninstall/install any application i cannot run most of the applications. I cannot run regedit.exe. I cannot even run on safe mode (by pressing f8)  i cannot turn on my firewall. I just cannot do any thing. I am in a software jail. I looked many things on the website but could not find anything that can solve my problems. I ran mcafee and everything is coming out clean. I can access my data though. How can i solve these problems without reinstalling windows 7.

Display, Task Manager

Okay, so i somehow changed the look of my task manager and now it doesn't help me with anything. It was the regular task manager when i bought it then one day it was just different. The only thing that it shows when i go to task manager after (ctrl, alt, del) is (headings at the top) user, id, status, client name, session. Thats all it shows as headings at the top. Then at the bottom it has two buttons, disconnect, log-off. When i try and right click to get more options it only shows disconnect or log-off as options.

Task Manager Does Not Start

When i try to start the task manager by right clicking the activity bar and selecting start task manager i get an error saying the taskmgr.exe file can not be found. The path suggested is c:windowssystem32askmgr.exe. When looking in that folder the file is there.

If i do ctrl-alt-delete and select to start it from there i get returned to the previous screen without task manager or error. Ctrl-shift-esc has no effect.

I've tried running a copy of the taskmgr.exe that worked on another computer running 64-bit windows 7. I am running a 64-bit windows 7 on intel core2 quad (q8300) any ideas?

Random Bsods - Event 41, Task 63

I am experiencing intermittent bsod crashes. The crashes do not correspond to high levels of activity, high operating temperatures or any other pattern that i can perceive. If anything, they occur most frequently shortly (seconds) after bootup or while the system is idle. The system is not overclocked. I have the latest bios available from msi and the latest optical drive, ethernet, gpu, and audio drivers.

(A side note on the ethernet driver. The latest version available from realtek's website is 7. 11. 1127. 2009.microsoft update recommended an update to the driver which i installed on feb. 6. This driver version was 7. 12. 128. 2009. I have experienced bsods with both versions of the driver. Currently i'm running realtek's latest version as i'm unclear how microsoft could have a more up-to-date version than the manufacturer. )

I have already tested the ram using memtest86. I've run in excess of 16 passes without returning any errors. I've also tested the hard drive using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility and chkdsk /r /f. Hard drive checks out fine. I've stress tested the system using prime95 and seti@home and the system has not shown any tendency to crash during stress testing. I've also run system file checker. It does not return any errors.

I've posted the minidump files here: http://expedientweb.com/bsod-dump.zip

I've posted the event logs here: http://expedientweb.com/event_log.zip

The critical events (which i assume are the bsod events) all run along these lines:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Task Manager Can't Log Off User

I have windows 7 home premium with three accounts on it. Frequently someone else uses one of two the standard account on it and locks it down, i come along and log in with my administrators and log in and try to kill off their session. When i run task manager, highlight the standard account and then click logoff i get an error message user amy (sessionid=1) could not be logged off. Access is denied.

I've tried running task-manager from the system32 folder as administrator (even though my account is administrator) but i still get the same message. The amy (the standard user account) at this point shows in task manager as disconnected. How can i log of the other two users without re-booting please?

Issue: Cannot Perform Any Task Using One Of The User Accounts

I've just installed windows 7 ultimate on an acer veriton m410. When logged in as administrator, the computer works without any problems. If i log in under my user name, there are several problems that take place. The first issue i noticed is i cannot explore "my computer. " I simply get an empty window and an icon indicating the computer is busy. Eventually, i get an error message that windows explorer needs to be restarted. I am not able to check the contents of my hard drive. In addition, when i try to log off from my user account, the computer stays on the log off screen continuously, and never logs me off. Again, if i am logged in as administrator, i have no problem logging off and shutting down the computer. Ny ideas how i can fix this?

Multiple Instances Of Explorer.exe Running In Task Manager

There are multiple instances of explorer.exe running in task manager (currently 7), each one using between 10-40mb of memory. I've never seen this in any previous version, and it doesn't look right to me. Different explorer.exe processes are using cpu resources at different times. I remember reading a while back that this could be a sign of a virus, but i've done a full scan with nis 2010 and nothing showed up. Can anyone give me pointers where to start investigating?

I did a clean install of windows 7 last friday -formatted hdd and all, so there hasn't been much time for anything bad to happen!
