Subsystem Needed To Support Image Type Is Not Present


Virtually every program on my computer will no longer start. I am receiving the following error:
C:program files (x86) "followed by specifics about the program" the subsystem needed to support the image type is not present. This implies to microsoft office 2010, sonos desktop, logmein, norton 360, windows live, etc, etc.

I can't find any online report of this error previously. It appears this may have begun following a microsoft update.microsoft recovery can not restore to a previous point. I keep getting a response that it was unsuccessful possibly do to a antivirus program. Norton uninstall will not start because of originally listed problem.

Interix / Unix Subsystem

I just enabled the unix subsystem in windows ultimate via "programs and features"† when i was finished, all i†saw was a folder on my computer labeled "subsystem for unix-based applications" that contained a help file and a link to download utilities. When i click on the link to download the utilities, i am taken†to a different and†very obscure link where i am prompted†to register. When i then answer that i want to register and click continue, i am taken to yet†another†page that says the page i am looking for no longer exists. Have the interix/unix subsystem for windows 7 utilities moved to another site?

Cannot Download Apps - Files Appears To Complete But Are Not Present

I have recently moved to a 64-bit win7 machine - with all of the fun of shifting my software that entails. Somewhere during the process ie8 stopped allowing me to download files - i get the screen for saving the file, there appears to be a download but there is nothing there. I have tried resetting to defaults twice. I have tried creating shortcuts from the 32 and 64 bits versions of ie8 on the machine. I've done the right click 'run as administrator' i'm running bitdefender 2010 (win7 compatible) and no other antivirus/firewall. Any suggestions welcomed

System Image Reports Two Boot Drives To Image

I have a sata (boot drive) and an ide drive in my win 7 pro 64 bit machine. Is there any way to remove the old boot partition on my ide from the list of drives to image w/ sys image? I can understand the c: part (sata/boot) and the "system reserved" but i don't want to image the d: part (1st part on old ide xp pro boot drive that has 84gb on it that i don't want to bkup). Funny thing is that the ide drive doesn't even show up on the boot sequence in bios. I really don't want to reformat in case something happens to my new sys i can still run xp on my old one (i lost my xp install disk).

I just want to leave it out of the sys image list. Theres no way to remove it from the list without reformatting the d: part. (Old boot drive)? Can i possibly make the d: part. Non bootable without running the xp installation on it and make it bootable again later?Maybeny help removing it from the list would be greatly appreciated!†

System Image Recovery Can't Find System Image

I am trying to restore a backup system image to my repaired pc. It is wiped clean. I have the "repair disc windows 7 64 bit" that i created in windows 7. Using windows 7 backup i have a system image backup on an external wd essentials 1tb usb hard†drive. I insert the repair disc and start the system. Get to system recovery options. I have the external hard disk with the system backup image connected. Select system image recovery option. Says "windows cannot find a system image on this computer. Attach the backup hard disk or insert the final dvd from a backup set and click retry. Alternatively, close this dialog for more options.

Retry gives me the same message. Tried starting with drive attached, not attached, same result. Click cancel. Next option selected is "select a system image. " No system image listed. Hit refresh, still nothing. Top of screen says "click advanced to add a network location or install a driver for a backup device if it does not show up in the list below. "† I click on the advanced tab.

Option to "search for a system image on the network" or "install a driver. " I select install a driver. Find the right driver for the wd essential hard drive (disk.sys and partmgr.sys) and when i click on them i get "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. "† Click ok. Can't find how to load these drivers i am being asked for. Funny thing is that on the screen where i search for driver i can see the wd essential hard drive connected to the system. I can also see the system image files but when i click on them i get the same error message, "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. "

Can I Filter A Library By File Type?

I create some various types of content like newsletters, videos, website work, and i store all the files from each project together, sorted into folders by client and then project name. So you can see that while my pictures library may be a great way to organze my personal photos, i don't put any image files associated with a project into my pictures folder, right?

Well i don't really have personal pictures on this machine, so†it would still be nice to just see all my picture files from all projects. I figured i might add my 'projects' folder to be one of the folders that gets aggregated into the pictures library. But when i do, everything from my projects shows up in the pictures library. How can i set the pictures 'virtual folder' to only show files of an image type, like only png, svg, gif, jpg, and stuff like that?

I seem to remember that libraries are based on "longhorn's" search folders, so how do i make it happen?

Program Cannot Be Run Because Of The Internet Connection Type

"program cannot be run because of the internet connection type" or "connect to the internet or contact your network administrator" i am having this issue with internet explorer whereby there must be a problem with the connection type settings because everytime i attempt to download either an application such as java or another search engine such as google chrome and even anti-virus such as symantec.

I am allowed to download the program but when i go to run the program i get different error messages for each application but all saying the same thing e.g. There is a problem with the internet connectivity-and this blocks the applications from running-another thing that happens is that when i get to an internet "hot-spot" where the browser is supposed to redirect to the login page of that network my internet explorer is not doing that.

Instead, it brings me to my home page and does not allow the network access page to be displayed. It also happens with skype, i downloaded it but when i went to run it, it sates: "please connect to the internet" when i am actually online on other tabs. Your help would be really appreciated.

Ps: i have tried reseting the setting for internet explorer from the advanced tab on the "internet options" window. I have also contacted my school's it center and they say that their connection is not limited in anyway (it also happens at home where i administer my network). I wanted to uninstall ie but could not find it on the "remove programs" list. Again, i have internet access but i am just not allowed to run applications and sometimes videos.

Search Java File Type Contents

I am having problems searching my . Java files. I go to the folder the file it†is in, type a keyword in the search box, like "system", and it shows there are no files that match my search. When i change the extension to .txt, it finds my files. I have checked the advanced options in index options and the java extension is listed there as checked to be indexed for searching contents and file attributes. I have also checked that my individual file properties are set to allow for indexing of file properties and contents. Is this just a bug or am i missing something?†If anyone could help me with this let me know.

Trouble Setting Up A Home Network (non-internet Type)

I am trying to set up a home network (non-internet type). It needs to work like a cleint type as my laptop is the main and the other three can connect to it to do work through the same program. I followed all the instructions on how to set up homegroup and made sure everyone has same passwords, and settings and all that and i am still having trouble getting all computers to connect correctly everytime we log on. I have done all trouble shooting and they cannot find out what the problem is. It makes it very frustrating when my children have to wait a half an hour or so just so i can try and get everyone connected right. Does anyone have any solutions? Or is ther a way that i can make the network work without a homegroup?

Unable To Run .exe File Type Problem

Would like to delete dos mode, i operate a "windows 7 home premium" laptop. A few days ago i was attempting to download an updated version of'adobe flash player' which never seemed to complete. It seemed directly after being at the adobe site that any time i try to open an exe file (executable), the file is sent to wordpad in 'dos mode'. I have never came across this situation before. My son-in-law came by last night and tried to run some kind of program off a usb stick, and he said, 'it would run'. After he left i was able to get on the internet, but still have the problem with exe type files.

Can't Properly Type With Japanese Ime On English Keyboard

Can't properly type with japanese ime on the english keyboard /windows 7 english version i have a problem with the english windows 7 home premium on the english keyboard when typing japanese using ime. No, i†should not†need the ultimate edition: with windows vista and xp home premium or equivalent editions, there wasn't such a problem. With windows 7 ime, the keyboard layout†seems to be†tied to japanese keyboard.

For example, if you type [shift] + [2], - english keyboard returns [@]
- Japanese keyboard returns ["] (double quotation)

I physically have an english keyboard with my pc, and i get ["] when i actually meant to type [@]. As i mentioned, it was perfectly fine with xp or vista to type with japanese ime and with the english keyboard layout. How do i make the same setting with window 7?

Shortcut - Right Click - Properties - Target - Can't Type Into Target

I just purchased a dell netbook, with windows 7. I am installing a game called guild wars. As most fans of the game know, you can download the entire game client and updates, by adding the command -imag at the end of the "target" under properties after right clicking on the guild wars shortcut. I was successful on installing the game, but i can't type in the "target" box in order to type -imag at the end of the directory (c://. -Imag) if anyone can help me with this problem i would really appreciate it. Once again the question is, how do i make it so i can actually type in the "target" box?
