Cannot Start Quake 4 Demo


I am trying to play the quake 4 demo that i downloaded. I want to see how the demo works on my machine before i purchase the game. I downloaded the demo, letting the game install where it wanted to install (for lack of a better way to describe it). When i tried to play the game, i got the following message "found dll in pak file: c:/program files (x86)/id software/quake 4 demo/q4base/game000. Pk4/gamex86.dll

Copy gamex86.dll to c:/program files (x86)/id software/quake 4 demo/q4base/gamex86.dll
Could not create destination file
********************
Error: dll extraction to fs_savepath failed
********************
Error during initialization
Shutting down opengl subsystem
. Wglmakecurrent( null, null ): success"

Can you help me figure this out? I have windows 7 64 bit, nvidia 6150 se video chipset, 6 megs of ram. My machine is 6 weeks old and appears to meet and surpass the requirements for quake4.

Cannot Start The Service Because It Is Disabled

System: windows 7 ultimate when i want to manually install a windows update or any other program (logged on as admin) i get this message:

'cannot start the service because it is disabled or because there are no running devices connected' (approximate because my windows dlgs are in dutch). Ll actions that require admin privileges in the config panel are disabled (although i'm logged on as admin). I even cannot download new signatures for spybot search & destroy. Starting services. Msc as admin is impossible (get above mentioned message).

Running it as regular user means you cannot start/stop a service. I suspected malware but scans with sas, spybot, ms security essentials, threatfire didn't show any suspicious activity. So, i'm out of solutions. Do i have to do a repair with booting the windows dvd or will it become a reinstall.
My system partition backup is too old (i know. ).

Programs Start Problems

My computer (windows 7 home) crashed the other day and now it takes forever for any program i launch (eg. Of the desktop) to start. I have cleaned my computer and run full virus scans but it is still ridiculously slow. Its not that my computer is taking forever to start up, it just seems like it takes for ever for it to realize i want to open. Internet explorer, for example. It is bloody annoying and i hope someone knows what is wrong, please post a reply if you know how to fix it.

Windows Failed To Start

I have successfully installed windows ultimate 7. I think. I hesitate to say successfully because when i restart or shutdown and restart, more than half the time on reboot, the system i am installing windows 7 to resets and then comes to a "windows failed to start" screen.

At that point, if i choose to "start normally" it will - most of the time - start. On occasion, it will reset again, come to the "windows failed to start" screen again, i will chose "start normally" and it will this time boot. I thought at first it was a driver issue but i tried the install without the drivers and have the same issue. I have tried different keyboards, mice, etc. None of that helps. I have tried going into msconfig and unchecking "use original boot configuration". I read that this had worked in another forum with a similar problem. It was worth a try.

Ie8 Start Up Error

Recently (as in the last 7-10 days) i receive the following message after boot up when launching ie8: "your last browsing session closed unexpectedly. I am given the choice of re-opening my last session or going to my home page. This only happens the first time i launch ie8 after booting up. I have tried most of the common fixes such as reset ie8, delete browsing history, delete hashed values from registry (.microsoft/internet explorer/recovery/active) all to no avail.

I also tried to disable all ie8 add-ons. When i went through tools/internet options/programs it didn't work. When i tried starting ie8 via start/all programs/accessories/ie (no add-ons), it worked like a champ. Clearly some add-on is still running but i can't see where.

I am running windows 7 on a fujitsu life book a1130, intel duel core, 4 gb of ram.

Office 2007
Norton internet security 2010
Norton utilities 14
Adobe reader 9
Adobe air
Adobe flash
Roxio creator
Cyberlink make disk
Cyberlink power director

As i mentioned, i tried disabling all add-on's but i think i am missing something.

Any ideas?

Error Recovery On Start Up

I have a message stating "windows failed to star. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. " I have tried both optinos1) launch startup repair (recommend)2) start windows normally choosing the first option it loads the windows file is loading  and then gets 3 bars into the windows & load screen then goes blank.

I have let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes in order to allow it to run it's diagnostic, but all that comes on the screen is the mouse cursor and nothing more. Choosing the second option, i get microsoft start up logo it runs and then a blank screen with a mouse cursor as well, but will not go past this point.

I attempted the f8 command to attempt to pick a boot another way, but it does not allow. Lastly, under the indicator lights on my lap top the processing indicator does not light up post the windows screen, thus my assumption is it will not configure in either option. The only indicator light that is present is the moon or sleep light.

Get Programs To Start Minimized

I am running windows 7 64 bit professional with an asus p5k3 mb, 3. 0 ghz, 8 gig of memory. I did a clean install on a freshly formatted 500 gig segate drive. (Never had an operating system on it)  i have a verizon air card that is controlled by verizon's vzaccess manager. No matter how many times i change the run in properties to minimized, after loading once or twice, it always changes the setting to "normal", which of course makes it so that i have to click the minus sign to get it to the taskbar.

I had the same trouble with my blackberry manager software, but after about 10-12 times of making the change to start minimized, it finally does now. One of the first things i did after installing win7 was to install vipre before i even went online to activate windows, so i don't think it could be a virus.

Print Slow To Start

Anybody else get this problem, any solutions out there? Everytime i print it to our network printer or to a local, the print takes ages to start even for single pages of text. It spools ok but when it switches to printing it just refuses to clear out and send to print. It just keeps hanging there. Eventually like 1 to 2 mins later it finally goes over. I am running win 7 pro 64-bit. I have tried disabling the isolated print spooler as recommended but it's still the same.

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?

Device Cannot Start Code 10

I recently purchased windows 7 for home. I formatted the hard disk and did a full install. All works fine except there is no internet connectivity. 1) i identified that the network controller had no driver attached and in devices there was a yellow question mark. I loaded the broadcom 440x 10/100 driver found within windows 7 to receive the following message: "the device cannot start (code 10). How do i resolve this as i cannot seem to download this driver from anywhere and was reliant on the windows driver for this by the same name.

2) interestingly in devices there is a network adapter showing and that is working fine. I can't seem to identify what that is for and whether it is related to this problem. It shows up as an intel adapter.

3) i installed a dlink adapter for wireless and that does not show up anywhere.

Cannot Start Device Code 10

I got a phonic usb-midi interface (midi hub), which work fine under windows xp because the generic usb driver that install on it works. The thing is that now i got a windows 7 64 bits. And i could not install this interface for my keyboard. I already check with the phonic company and they don't have a driver for windows 7. So what could i do, its possible to install the generic drivers of windows xp to windows 7. I already check and mi device works fine on xp but on windows 7, i got this error message "this device cannot start. (Code 10)".

Powershell Start Up Issue

I'm in 64-bit windows 7, and when i start powershell, i get the following error:

"There were errors in loading the format data file:

Microsoft. Powershell. Diagnostics, error in file c:windowssystem32windowspowershellv1. 0diagnostics. Format. Ps1xml: data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1. "

Even though the console comes up, the commands are messed up. When i start the x86 powershell, the error doesn't come up. But it appears that i need the 64-bit version for some programs i run.

How do i fix this?

System Repair Does Not Start

I'm having issues with my pc. It has 64 bit windows 7 and it sometimes does not start and when it does some programs are not responsive. Also, my system security is disabled. I can start it, but it really doesn't do anything and when i restart it goes right back to disabled. Btw, i have mcafee plus as my av. I've ran stinger, ad-adware and other programs and cannot detect any viruses or trojans. I've also noticed my clock is wrong by a day. I don't see anything funny running in the background but i know something is wrong. I tried to do a windows repair but when i select that option it just goes to a black screen and does nothing. Also, sometimes when i try to boot in safe mode it hangs on classpnp.sys.

It is hit or miss if windows will load. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. I've put my windows 7 cd in and it doesnt, i've put a windows 7 repair disk and it sometimes will but it takes forever. I've even put an office 2007 and it does nothing. I've done memory test, and scan disk have not found any errors. When it does boot the interet works okay sometimes. Just like normal. Then it becomes very slow. One thing that never works is my outlook. It always
Loads then changes to "not responding" any ideas? I can't believe i can't figure this one out. I've always at a minimum was able to reload windows.

Classic Start Menu

I want to know how to get the classic format for the start menu. This question was previously asked by nice get but the ms engineer, debbie, who replied, missed the point. She answered about theme and using classic theme, which is just the desktop appearance. Please note: we want the classic start menu option. How do you obtain that in windows 7? Previously it was under the start menu box. I want to know how to get the classic format for the start menu.

Speeding Up Start Up Time

Since microsoft does not recommend or support registry cleaning programs, how then does one speed up his system when starting up? There are programs that start with my windows application that i do not want, or need to start with windows, and they will not let me remove them from the start up menu. Aol to be specific. I do not want it running all the time, but it will not allow me to remove it from the background. There are others that i do not need tying up resources, and they do not give me the option not to load on startup. Windows defender is ok, but i don't particularly like it.

Outlook 2007 Start Up Problem

After reinstalling outlook 2007 and installing the quickbooks sync tool outlook now throws up the uac pop window (do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?) Every time i start it. I've tried uninstalling outlook and reinstalling it, i've downloaded all the office updates. I've uninstalled the sync tool and it i still get the uac pop up every time. Not only that but the sync tool never even showed up inside of outlook (it shows up as inactive in the trust center-> add-ins window and reactivating it doesn't work). Since this is a known publisher what can i do to get outlook to stop triggering the uac?
