Error - There Was A Problem Sending Command To Program

Error message "there was a problem sending the command to the program" when trying to go to a link that is in an e-mailed message. I have no problem accessing links when in explorer, only when trying to get to a linked site from e-mail. This problem just started today, after the latest updates were installed. And it doesn't happen every time! If i retry the link, it'll go through (usually) after 3or 4 tries.

Edit Command Is Not Recognized As An Internal Or External Command

Getting this message when using edit via command prompt - 'edit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I've seen where edit.exe and/or edit.com should be installed in windows/system32. No "edit" files. So what can one use to edit files via the command prompt in windows 7?

Every Icon On Desktop Looks Like Word File / Program

I'm working with windows 7, on a new hp laptop. Windows booted up normally, but every icon on the desktop looks like a word file, and every program in the startup menu looks like a word file. Any time that i try to open a program, word opens, as well as a window that says to pick windows (default), os dos, or other encoder to find which one works to be able to read the message in the window, but none of them work. None of the programs are accessible, and word is trying to open every program. What do i do? I'm so confused. I've never seen this before, and i'm pretty familiar with computers.

Trouble Sending Email

I installed windows 7 and windows mail. The problem is that i can get my mail but haven't been able to send any mail and the messages that are in my sent box were never sent out. I am at a remote location and not on my home isp network. It worked ok on my vista but after the upgrade  nothing can be sent out. I believe i have the correct information in my server because it was working before win7. Is there a number that i can call if i can't get a answer here? Thanks, my frustration level is now red!

Fax Sending Problem

I have been trying to send a fax for a long time now and it constantly says that the call had not been answered. I have looked over everything i could find on the internet and it does not seem that i am doing anything wrong. I have uninstalled / reinstalled windows fax and scan a couple of times but it seems to do no good. I still get the same message. One thing i noticed when reading the forums is that if i were to uninstall windows fax and scan and i were to reinstall it again , trying to send a fax for the first time, the fax wizard would pop up and lead me through the setup of the fax.

This wizard never comes up after the very first time that i set it up. I dont think i did anything wrong during the fax setup. The only thing that i entered was my area code. When i try to send a fax i hear the dialing tone and the fax tone for quite some time but in the end i get the same problem that i have described.

Sending Win 7 Overseas

My question is regarding installing windows 7 on computers that are not located in the same country as the country of purchase. So my brother is overseas in romania, and we wish to buy a windows 7: home premium package (for 3 users), and then use 2 of the license codes here in australia on our computers at home, and send the 3rd one for him to use in romania. Please note: my brothers laptop has been purchased from australia but he is now using it in romania. Will there be any issues with doing this?

Mail Stops Sending And Receiving

I have had windows mail on my system for 2 years now and suddenly it's started having problems with sending and receiving mail. This is not 100% of the time, but intermittent - it's been ok for all day for example but now it's failing to connect and is coming up with the error message 0x800cc13. My iphone is thankfully still downloading mail in the interim so i don't think this is a server issue.

I'm using windows vista and this may be coincidence but i'm sure this has only started happening since the latest windows update. Any / all advice would be welcome, i'm using windows mail for work and this is really proving a bugbear.

Mail Not Receiving Or Sending Emails

For the last two days or so, one of my email accounts is not receiving any mail, including test emails we had friends send to us. Furthermore, when trying to send an email to a different user on this computer, the letter was sent, but never went to the email i wanted. It came to the address i sent it from. The only email i've received in a couple of days. Lso, when i hit synchronize and send/receive, i get the error message window, but in the little tab where there would be an error code, it si blank, yet the window says an error has occurred!What gives?

Please help, i've been putting too much money into this computer since april (4 viruses, despite my paranoia and prevention of viruses)

Sending Pics Via Email Live

I have had my computer since feb. It is a gateway, 8gb, 1tb and was working very nicely up until about a month ago when i started having problems sending pics via e-mail/through windows live. I pull up the pic to send and the windows live box comes up but when i go to send a little box comes up, telling me that there are initializing errors with my hotmail acct inbox, outbox, etc. With a red circle by each remark. It also gives me an error id ox80070057 and suggested i go to support live.com to find out what that meant. I did and it said something was stuck in my outbox.

Well, i deleted all but 28 e-mails deleted every pic off my live profile, deleted all cookies and temp files, deleted some pictures, deleted programs that w don't use and/or don't need- oh. This
Is also because in the windows live mailbox that comes up to send the pics, behind the other box i get a message saying check your computer for low disk space and or low memory.

I don't have anything on my computer other than my pics, a few(4)) documents(small) & music. I'm wondering what is causing this and how can i fix it? Could it be all the songs my boyfriend has downloaded? I think it might be. He did delete 2 play-lists, but i just looked and there are like 30 hours worth of music on here and almost 430 songs that i can find. I told him i think those songs are causing the problem, but i could b wrong.

Fax Stopped Working For Sending And Receiving

This is a new higher end windows 7 intel based i5 computer with 8gb of memory. I have been using the windows fax and scan successfully before. When i went to receive a fax that area was grayed out. I lost all of my history of previous faxes. The name with fax number directory was still there. I manually copied the few listings. I also found i could not send faxes. It seems that in the print directory the print to fax name looks different. But i can't be sure. It now says " fax, microsoft shared fax driver" .

I confirmed that the fax is operational and the wires are connected properly by going online via a dial up network. So, i would think it's in the fax program software.

I tried to remove and reinstall the program, but in the control panel under remove programs i couldn't find it. Also, i'm not sure where to get the program to reinstall. I do have the windows 7 ultimate disk available. I tried going to "tools", then "fax settings". The blue circle circled and the window said, "not responding". Then it stopped. In other words, i cannot access the settings.

Problems Sending And Receiving Email Through Webmail

Here are the problems i am having since installing windows 7 and uninstalling/reinstalling ie 7; are they ie problems or something else?1. When i uninstalled ie 7 the hyperlinks in office 2003 wouldn't work. Dell's tech service ($140 and 5 hours work) reinstalled ie 7 (32 bit) and now my hyper-links in office 2003 do work. However:2. I cannot send email to my wife (different computers, same house). I am using windows live.com email.

She is using yahoo.com email. I send her email and she doesn't get it. When i use gmail.com she receives my email fine. But never when i use live.com. 3. When i signed up at the website zencast.com i never received a verification email. I tried using 3 different emails and none worked. 4. Ie 8 keeps coming up with a message asking me to install it. I don't want to because then my hyperlinks in office 2003 won't work again. Ie 7 is 32 bit. Office 2003 is 32 bit.

Ie 8 is 64 bit. My understanding is that office 2003 uses ie 7 for it's hyperlinks. Office 2007 and the upcoming 2010 does not - apparently. So until i get office 2007 or 2010 i have to keep only ie 7, not ie 8. This is my understanding. These are the weird problems i'm having since 1) installing windows 7 and 2) uninstalling ie 7 and reinstalling it.

Ie8 Crashes When Sending Email Via Owa

I have a new lenovo x200 that came with windows 7 professional. When using outlook web access in premium mode via ie8, if i try to send an email, data execution prevention forces ie8 to close. (Basic mode owa works fine, but it's much less user-friendly compared to premium mode. ) I have seen some postings by other people who have had a similar problem, but nothing that others have discussed has worked for me. For example, resetting the ie8 settings hasn't helped. Is there anything i can do to make premium mode owa work on this computer? Premium mode owa worked fine on my old computer that ran xp and ie7.

Not Enough Storage To Process Command

I have major problem trying to install a new wlan pci card. When i first inserted it into the pc i figured the pnp would take care of everything but no so i installed it manually from the cd, this didn't work either so i tried to install it using a driver from the manufacturers website. The installation finishes and everything but windows still goes to look for drivers and when it doesn't find any i go to look in the device manager and i get the following error code:the drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) (but they are)not enough storage is available to process this command.

To find a driver for this device, click update driver. I have about 2, 5gig ram free and about 590 gig of disk space free so that can't be it right?The things i have tried are:running the setup file as administrator, performing a disk cleanup, creating a new account with administrator acces, "telling" windows installer where to find the driver installer. Nothing works. Doe's anyone have any good ideas?

How To Turn Off Monitor Via Command Line ?

How can i turn off the monitor (i.e. , "Put it to sleep") via command line at the push of a button (or any other shortcut not requiring additional software)? I don't like it when, after a pause working on my pc, the screen turns itself off as set up per "power options" on the control panel. That's why i set the threshold fairly high.

Still, when i know i won't be needing the computer for a while, i want to save power and wish the sleep mode could be activated immediately. Turning the display off is not an option, since it has an integrated usb-hub - turning it off completely would disconnect any connected device. Usually though the computer still runs and might need the connected resources.

Ideally, by pushing a button (or starting a program or something), the display would immediately go into sleep mode.

On systems before vista and 7, iirc, executing a command along the lines of:

Rundll32.exe user32.dll, sendmessage (hwnd_broadcast, wm_syscommand, sc_monitorpower, 2);

Would do the trick. The dll would execute the command to put the monitor to sleep. One could create a shortcut or even integrate the command into a batch file, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to work on vista or 7.

Does anybody have an idea on how to do this on windows 7? I would very much try to avoid having to install any additional software to help me out. (There are quite some small applications around, even free ones, that promise to do just that, but i would like to avoid them if possible. And i cannot believe that something this basic that could be done on xp cannot be done anymore on 7!)

Svchost Command Prompt On Login

Whenever i log in, i see a command prompt for install\svchost.exe pop up and run for a few seconds before disappearing. This did not happen in the past and i don't remember making any changes to the system recently. This appears to have no noticeable effects on the system. What is this and why did it start happening? Is it anything to worry about?

Windows Network - Not Enough Storage Available To Process Command

Cannot connect to wireless external drive - "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" error and system running slow after update. I just updated my laptop to windows 7 and am having a few problems. One - everything seems to be running slower (i thought it was supposed to be faster!). More problematic is the fact that i can't access my external hard drive which is networked. It shows it, but when i click on it (it's listed as a z drive), the error "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" shows.

I installed win7 on my husband's laptop the other day with no troubles. His is able to still access the networked drive without a problem and is running great. So great, i went and got it for my laptop. My husband's laptop is running the 64 version of home premium and mine the 32. I used upgrade advisor and fallowed all the recommendations it gave. Including uninstalling itunes. I saved my itunes files to the external drive and can't access them.

I have a hp pavillion dv6000 running webroot security suite.
2. 0 gb ram, t5600 @ 1. 83 ghz, inter core 2cpu

Net Use Lpt /persistent:y Command Problem

I have a windows 7 pro pc printing to a printer shared on windows server 2003 r2 sp2 active dir domain. To print from a command prompt, i use the following command:

Net use lpt2 \serversharedprn /persistent:y

I can then use the following command:

Print /d:lpt2 filename. Ext

The command works fine. Problem is, after a while, windows 7 loses lpt2 mapping. I have to issue another net use command (like the above). Under windows xp, the net use command with /persistent option sticks forever but windows 7 keeps losing the mapping. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Command Prompt Does Not Display Lan Settings

For a college assignment i have to go to the command prompt and type in 'ipconfig/all'. From there i should be able to see the host name, mac address, default gateway, subnet mask, etc, however. This information does not show. Its either all zeros (in the case of the address)  or its just not there at all. I can go into the network connections and view these details there. But they will not show in the command prompt. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with geeksquad just for the guy to tell me "i dont know what to tell you". Does anyone have any ideas?  This is rather troublesome considering a lot of my work has to consist of accurate screen shots of the command prompt. Thanks in advance!

Cannot Boot In Safe Mode Or Command Prompt

Not sure what the problem is but every mode i try booting in gets a black screen and the brightness of the screen is dimmer however i do get a mouse pointer that i can move around freely. I have an assumption that its a video error and regucure probably messed something up while i was trying to repair broken registry. Currently in kuwait by the way and both safe mode and command prompt is the same way the only thing i seem to be able to use is the f2 setup screen which does not seem to help at all either resetted the settings to default but no progress. Wish i could find a way to fix this without taking cash from my pocket or sending it to a place to reset it to factory settings.
