  1. Hi All! :welcome: I'm having an issue that I very much hope someone can assist me with. I was trying to Organize & Fix some "Services" running Automtically on My System since the SP3 Install & needed to get into the " Add/Remove Windows Components " Section in the Windows Installer Program but when I try to gain Access to this Particular Area I get a Red X Error that I Do NOT get elsewhere with any of the other functions within the Add / Remove Program. I can Get Into & Use the " Change or Remove Programs" Section Fine, & the " Set Program Access Defaults" Opens Fine too!! Its just the " Add/Remove Windows Components" Section that I get this Error!!?? THE ERROR READS AS FOLLOWS ::: " Setup Was Unable To Load the Master Information File" & then When I Hit <OK> I get Another Red X Message that Reads: " The Application Could Not Be Initialized ". **** Ive Attached TWO Screen Shots...One of Each Error Message just incase you need to see it **** I have NO clue how long its been like this. I cant even remember the last time I went into the "Windows Components" area. I would be EXTREMELY Grateful for any Help at Restoring My Access to this Area & Correcting this Issue...Please? Can I maybe Reinstall Windows Installer & maybe it would fix whatever is wrong ? ANY Helpful Information or Suggestions would be MORE then Appreciated !!! ~~ Hugs Hugs ~~ :giveheart: Corey..."LadyCore" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ " To Err Is Human....But If Feels Divine " ~ Mae West ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ AddRemoveWinCompError01.bmp AddRemoveWinCompError02.bmp
  2. Hi Everyone. :giveheart: I have an issue Im looking for some insight about & hope someone here can help me! ( thanks in advance !! ) :worthy: I was looking at a Friends Wireless Connected Dell Laptop for her today, & in her Event Log I found Three Errors Im Concerned about & Dont know how to go about resolving. :g: Two of them Happened right after eachother & I believe they are Related & then One happened the Day prior. The EVENT ERRORS Read as Follows ::: ( These are the First Two that Happened One After the Other) * TIME: Today at 1:36PM ~ EVENT ID#: 8003 ~ SOURCE: MRxSmb DESCRIPTION : " The Master Browser has a Server Announcement from the Computer *Name1* that Believes that it is the Master Browser for the Domain on Transport NetBt_Tcpip_{19E63502-F763-4C9F-8B9. The Master Browser is Stopping or an Election is Being Forced. " * TIME: Today at 1:55PM ~ EVENT ID#: 4321 ~ SOURCE: NetBt DESCRIPTION : " The Name "Name2 :1d" could not be Registered on the Interface with IP Address ***.***.5.101. The Machine with the IP Address ***.***.5.100 Did Not Allow the Name to Be Claimed By this Machine " ( This is the Other that was the Day Prior ) * TIME: 3/18/2009 (yesterday) at 6.28PM ~ EVENT ID# : 1002 ~ SOURCE: DHCP DESCRIPTION : " The IP Address Lease ***.***.1.101 for the Network Card with Network Address 0045AC94E3A has bee Denied by the DHCP Server ***.***.5.1 (The DHCP Server Sent a DHCPNACK Mssg) " I am not Network Savvy by ANY Means!! I Do want to tell you that after seeing this, that I went onto the Main Computer in the house...the one which this Wireless one shares a DSL connection with... ( i guess you would call it the Host Computer ?? ) & I checked it's " SERVICES " Functions for the heck of it & I noticed that the " Computer Browser " Service & the " Server " Service were Both not started & the " Computer Browser " was on Manual mode instead of the default setting of Automatic & the " Server " service was on Disabled...for some reason??...( & my friend may have fiddled where she shouldnt have at some point,...?? errrrg )...but I started them & put them back on the Automatic mode for the future...so I dont know if these two things not being started is what made these errors on the Wireless Client Computer today. I didnt see any other of them from yesterday but didnt look hard. I dont know anything about that DHCP error event....& definitely need some insight here. Ill note that the Wireless & the Host ? computer do not Share files or foldes or Printers or anything like that. The Wireless just shares the connection in order to run Wirelessly. Hope someone can lend a helping hand & some useful Info.....As you always do at this forum site!!!

  3. Hi Again Everyone. Im here to post for another issue, but wanted to add to this post to this thread to follow up & tell you all that someone told me that the System Restore Feature could cause duplicates like I had. I dont know how true this is, but it was given to me by someone knowledgable on computers, and I just wanted to leave it here just incase someone has the same issue as me in the future. It very well may have been the System Restore too because it was soon after using the System Restore numerous times in a row, going back & forth between restoring the reversing the restore,..(stupid)...that this happened...... errrrr. Anywho..... Thats All. No Biggie! ENJOY & Thanks Again! :giveheart: Corey..."LadyCore" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ " To Err Is Human....But it Feels DIVINE !!!!

  4. Hi Everyone!! I thank you kindly for reading my post & helping me out. Ive never used these forums before & wish I had a long time ago. All of you are so kind to take the time to help out & I truly thank you! Im going & deleting them right now so THANKS BUNCHES!!! ....And I dont know how they got there nor do I know if some program made them or if something modified my system...at least nothing Im aware of. I tried going through program files & system folders & checking properties & creation dates to see if something would strike a bell or if I would recognize something or see some similarities, but i got nothing,....the duplicate (2)(2) files all have the same exact creation date as their original system file & most of those have the original first date when we installed the OS,...there are just a couple with later creation dates but the (2)(2) files still have the same creation date as their original. ...its extremely odd to say the least, but i just want them off it they dont need to be here, so im going now & deleting them for good!! I ran NUMEROUS virus & spyware programs to search for virus' but they never find anything, so Im assuming its not a virus!!??..I would think that one out of the many scans that have ran would have found it....no?? Ive ran Malwarebytes & Windows Defender & they actually scan every night & never find anything & then I have Avast Home Edition as our AntiVirus which is also an AntiSpyware, & then I also have Spyware Blaster,& Adware Anniversary Edition, but then on top of those I have gone to Cnet in the past & downloaded other programs to try them & they never find anything either...so I dont think its a virus....Who knows what it is. I had a friend of mine living here with me for a few months as she went through her divorce & who knows what she did when she was on here. THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE :wub_anim:

THANKS for the Chance! :giveheart: Name: Cj Age:34 Location:Long Island, NY
  6. Hi All. Im hoping someone can share some insight on a file issue I noticed within my System32 folder that confuses me. :confused02: I am at a loss & would be so grateful for some information. I have browsed search engines looking for an answer for hours now & cant find ANYTHING about this...not even one thing; & so I very much hope to get some answers here. While Browsing my System 32 Windows folder, as I am in the process of following Bold Fortunes Slimming Down Windows XP, I have come across some files I am confused by. There are files here,...one's absolutely needed for windows to function properly...such as "Windows Shell Common DLL", File:"shell32.dll" but there are duplicates just like the one for this file that read like this "shell32(2)(2).dll" There are a bunch like this & below I list some for you so you can see more of what I am talking about, but everything is exactly the same. There are no differences between the duplicates. The creation dates are the same, the file size is the same & I have even done the fc command function for all of them which compared them & found no differences between them. Do you think that since they are exactly the same that it might be ok to delete these duplicates? Does anyone know why they may be here or where they came from? Not every system file has a duplicate, but a bunch & again, below I list some. The Duplicate files kinda seem to maybe have Windows NT in common & same with something called API?....but i really dont know, this is just an observation....I am absolutely not computer savvy, so I ask that you PLEASE review the list below & tell me what you think. I also maybe wonder that if the duplicates are not due to this thing called Windows NT that maybe they are duplicated because I am running a wireless laptop off the same router??..again...i dont know, just thought Id throw that out there. Please review this list & tell me what you think. Id love some knowledgable insight here,..PLEASE??? xxoo Some Duplicate Exaples are as follows: Application Compatibility Client Library, File:"apphelp.dll" & "apphelp(2)(2).dll" Application Layer Gateway Service, File:"alg.exe" & "alg(2)(2).exe" Service that Offers IPv6 connectivity over an IPv4, File:"6to4svc.dll" & "6to4svc(2)(2).dll" ATL Module for Windows XP (unicode), File:"atl.dll" & "atl(2)(2).dll" Windows NT Base API Service, File:"basesrv.dll" & "basesrv(2)(2).dll" Windows Audio Service, File:"audiosrv.dll" & "audiosrv(2)(2).dll" Authorization Framework, File:"authz.dll" & "authz(2)(2).dll" Microsoft Cabinet File API, File:"cabinet.dll" & "cabinet(2)(2).dll" Cluser API Library, File:"clusapi.dll" & "clusapi(2)(2).dll" Credential Manager User Interface, File:"credui.dll" & "credui(2)(2).dll" Cryptographic Service, File:"cryptsvc.dll" & "cryptsvc(2)(2).dll" File,:"Comsvcs.dll" & "Comsvcs(2)(2).dll" Microsoft Trust UI Provider, File:"cryptui.dll" & "cryptui(2)(2).dll" Event Logging Service, File:"eventlog.dll" & "eventlog(2)(2).dll" Server Database Storage engine, File:"esent.dll" & "esent(20(2).dll" Home Networking Configuration, File "hnetcfg.dll" & "hnetcfg(2)(2).dll" Hid User Library, File:"hid.dll" & "hid(2)(2).dll" Windows Error Reporting Service, File:"ersvc.dll" & "ersvc(2)(2).dll" Windows Direct User Engine, File:"duser.dll" * duser(2)(2).dll" Microsoft MIDI Mapper, File "midimap.dll" & "midimap(2)(2).dll" Windows Modem Properties, File "modemui.dll" & "modemui(2)(2).dll" LSA Shell (Export Version), File:"lsass.exe" & "lsass(2)(2).exe" Winodws NT MP Router Administration DLL, File "mprapi.dll" & "mprapi(2)(2).dll" Windows NT Logon GINA Dll, File:"msgina.dll" & "msgina(2)(2).dll" Microsoft ® C++ Runtime Library, File:"msvcp60.dll" & "msvcp60(2)(2).dll" Windows Installer, File "msi.dll" & "msi(2)(2).dll" Windows NT CRT DLL, File "msvcrt.dll" & "msvcrt(2)(2).dll" MS DTC & MTS Clustering Support DLL, File:"mtxclu.dll" & "mtxclu(2)(2).dll" GDI Client DLL, File:"gdi32.dll" & "gdi32(2)(2).dll" GDIEXT Client DLL, File "msimg32.dll" & "msimg32(2)(2).dll" LDAP RnR Provider DLL, File:"winrnr.dll" & "winrnr(2)(2).dll" Net Win32 API Dll, File:"netapi32.dll" & "netapi32(2)(2).dll" Net Logon Services DLL, File:"netlogon.dll" & "netlogon(2)(2).dll" NT LM UI Common Code Networking Classes, File:"netui1.dll" & "netui1(2)(2).dll" Network Connections Shell, File:"netshell.dll" & "netshell(2)(2).dll" Microsoft LAN Manager, File"ntlanman.dll" & "ntlanman(2)(2).dll" Microsoft OLE for Windows, File "ole32.dll" & "ole32(2)(2).dll" Windows NT Marta Provider, File:"ntmarta.dll" & "ntmarta(2)(2).dll" Microsoft Data Access ODBC Driver Manager, File "odbc32.dll" & "odbc32(2)(2).dll" Protected Storage Server, File:"pstorsvc.dll" & "pstorsvc(2)(2).dll" Power Profile Helper, File:"powrprof.dll" & "powrprof(2)(2).dll" PNRP Name Space Provider, File "pnrpnsp.dll" & "pnrpnsp(2)(2).dll" Remote Access PPP CHAP, File:"raschap.dll" & "raschap(2)(2).dll" Registry Configuration API's, File:"regapi.dll" & "regapi(2)(2).dll" Remote Procedure Call Runtime, File:"rpcrt4.dll" & "rpcrt4(2)(2).dll" Routing Utilities, File:"rtutils.dll" & "rtutils(2)(2).dll" Task Scheduler Engine, File:"schedsvc.dll" & "schedsvc(2)(2).dll" SENS Connectivity API DLL, File:"sensapi.dll" & "sensapi(2)(2).dll" Secondary Logon Service DLL, file "seclogon.dll" & "seclogon(2)(2).dll" Windows Shell Services DLL, File:"shsvcs.dll" & "shscvs(2)(2).dll" Shim Engine DLL, File:"shimeng.dll" & "shimeng(2)(2).dll" Microsoft SMARTCARD API, File:"winscard.dll" & "winscard(2)(2).dll" Winstation Library, File:"winsta.dll" & "winsta(2)(2).dll" Workstation Service DLL, File:"wkssvc.dll" & "wkssvc(20(2).dll" Win32 LDAP API DLL, File:"widap32.dll" & "widap32(2)(2).dll" Common DLL to Receive WinLogon Notifications, File:"wlnotify.dll" & "wlnotify(2)(2).dll" MCI API DlL, File:"winmm.dll" & "winmm(2)(2).dll" Windows HTTP Services.

Hopefully I didnt leave to many typos...lol. I hope someone can give me some info. I just dont know what they are doing there if they are exactly the same as the original & where they came from & if I can get rid of them or not. I'd be so grateful for some knowledge. :wub_anim: HUGS, Corey
