Xp problems and their solutions by Suresh Dangi

There is One for Everyone !!

1) When i try to access my task manager(Ctr+Alt+Del)…it displays message
‘task manger has been disabled by ur administrator’…, and also i cant access my registry too..!!
what may have caused this problem….
is it becos of some VIRUS…????
how can i repair this without re installing…?? any particular software??

1: Close the IE browser. Log out messenger / Remove Internet Cable.
2: To enable Regedit
Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below: (better – Copy and paste)
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
3: To enable task manager : (To kill the process we need to enable task manager)
Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below: (better – Copy and paste)
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
4: Now we need to change the default page of IE though regedit.
Start>Run>Regedit
From the below locations in Regedit chage your default home page to google.com or other.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
HKEY_USERS\Default\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Just replace the attacker site with google.com or set it to blank page.
5: Now we need to kill the process from back end. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del
Kill the process svhost32.exe . ( may be more than one process is running.. check properly)
6: Delete svhost32.exe , svhost.exe files from Windows/ & temp/ directories. Or just search for svhost in your comp.. delete those files.
7: Go to regedit search for svhost and delete all the results you get.
Start menu > Run > Regedit >
8: Restart the computer. That’s it now you are virus free.

it works !!

2)I don’t have IIS( Internet Information Services) windows componet on my system

As far as I know one can’t have IIS running on XP Home. I think u will have to upgrade it to XP Prof.
in proff That’s simple get the Win XP CD, go to control panel–>add/remove programs and then to add/remove windows components. There u will find the option for adding IIS, just check the checkbox and follow the instructions. You r done!!

3) Folder Option Vanished

IF U WANT UR FILES THT WERE HIDDEN U CAN TYPE *.* IN SEARCH AND ALSO TICK THE OPTION “INCLUDE HIDDEN FILES”.
NOW SEARCH IN THE DRIVE IN WHICH U STORED UR FILES, U WILL GET UR FILES BUT TO GET BACK THE OPTION U EITHER HAVE TO REINSTALL WINDOWS OR REPAIR IT. well this is as far as i know..

4) My volume icon is not showing in taskbar, Yet It’s Enable From Control Panel > Sound And devices

Assuming that you have tried the basic steps i am directly trying with the most possible solutions. This issue most commmonly occurs because the settings are not saved. Also there might be some startup program which is diabling the Systray.exe from loading up.

Try this…
1) Re-enable the volume icon by disabling and then enabling Place volume icon in the taskbar in the Sound and Audio applet.
2) Then copy the following text which is in red into a notepad file and then save it as “fix.reg”. Please make sure that there is no .txt extension after that.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
“NoSaveSettings”=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
“SystemTray”=”SysTray.Exe”

3) Merge the file to the registry by simply double clicking on it.
4) Reboot

This should definitely work. Please reply back with the status.

Cheers

5)Whenever i try d’loading stuff from the net, the download starts and the comp just restarts. due to dis i have to install d’load managers wich i hate. help needed anyone. i have win xp!

If the computer just restarts itself, it cud possibly be an application crash..
check the Dr.watson log for details..
START-RUN- drwtsn32.
check the path for the log here… open the log and check which application is causing the crash.
turn of automatic reboot,cos you wud miss it if there is a BSOD being generated.

or may be u could try this one out

Go to Start>Run–Type ‘services.msc’, hit ENTER
Scroll down to a service called Remote Procedure Call, right click, go to properties, there will be a tab named Recover Action, change it to ‘Take No Action’ if it’s not already selected. Your problem should be solved for the time being. Also look for all network related srvices DNS, TCP-IP and also Windows Firewall/ICS service if you’re on LAN/WAN, see that all of these are set to Automatic or Manual. Reply to me with results

6)I accidentally deleted the Show Desktop icon which sits normally on the bottom left hand corner of the Taskbar. How do I restore the icon?

Click Start, Run and type the following command:

regsvr32 /n /i:U shell32.dll

The Show Desktop icon file should be available now.

or

Click Start, Run, and type Notepad.exe. Copy the following contents to Notepad.

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Save the file as – : Show Desktop.scf. Now, drag the file to the Quick Launch Toolbar. (Notepad might automatically append a .txt extension to the file name. Remove this extension if present.)
