Dear techguy gal At my work I have Office via a network server don t ask I had sent myself a picture from my home to use as a backround wallpaper image for my monitor at work This was an image I scanned to my computer and then sent using IE browser The problem is that even though I have deleted the picture file and changed to a preprogramed Windows backround the former image appears for a brief moment whenever I switch from a window in any running program For Image Window Flashback instance if I minimize my quot Word quot window to go to another program window I see a quick flash of the former picture I had as the quot backround quot I tried this with several pictures and it always flashes Window Image Flashback with the most recent image used for the wallpaper backround - deleted or not Sometimes this image freezes for a few seconds in Window Image Flashback full screen mode and then disappears - other times it is just a quick small flash It seems to only appear when I switch from window to window I tried using regedit and found the Window Image Flashback name of the file and deleted it there too but it remains in some kind of cache file Is ther any way of getting rid of this image flashback or is it just a poor video card Thanks much Paul K nbsp

Preferred Solution: Window Image Flashback

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have noticed that with win 2000 pro that the last background you had is the one you see for a brief moment on booting the machine and in any screen saver password screens.
What I did was changed my background to the one I would like to see that popped up for a sec then set the background I always wanted to see and my current background that should get rid of that other background for ya.

Okay, so I flash my ATI Radeon 9550XL AGP 4/8x to a Saphire 9600PRO Bios, I flashed the card via winflash and the computer restarted... sadly my graphic card was making a series of flashing colors while windows boots. What im trying to find out is if I can create a boot up floppy / cd-r disk to UN-Flash the BIOS to its orignal BIOS. I have the backup I just need to know how im going to un-flash the bios via bootup
 

A:Solved: Ati Bios Flashback

See this: http://www.techpowerup.com/printarticle.php?id=34

If you want the faster speeds of the 9600 then you should just overclock the card.

http://blog.intego.com/flashback-mac-trojan-horse-infections-increasing-with-new-variant/What this malware does This malware patches web browsers and network applications essentially to search for user names and passwords. It looks for a number of domains ? websites such as Google, Yahoo!, CNN; bank websites; PayPal; and many others. Presumably, the people behind this malware are looking for both user names and passwords that they can immediately exploit ? such as for a bank website ? as well as others that may be reused on different sites. (Hint: don't use the same password for all websites!) One of the clues that a Mac is infected is that certain applications will crash. This is notably the case for web browsers, such as Safari, or other network programs, such as Skype. This is because the injected code interferes with the program making it unstable. This malware also has an automatic update module that checks a number of websites for new versions. More @ link.

If I can manage get all the clips on the menu, the window is too big not allowing me to get to the bottom of the window to click OK to write the disc.

I'm putting together an HTML order form. I have two issues I need help with:

1. Opening a new window by clicking on an image
2. Resizing the Window (IE only) to fit the image

I've looked on ITR.org and haven't found what I'm looking for.
 

A:Open Child Window to Fit Image

There are some scripts out there to do this... and there is no reason it has to be IE only. I can write something for you. but I need to know exactly what you need. Would you like to specify the height and width of the image that you want the window opened to so its a different size than the original image?
Or you could have it detect the height and width of the image and open to the same size.
Or maybe you would like it increased by a scale factor (double the width and double the height for example).

I've got a PC that I recently updated the nVidia drivers for (well about 2 months ago) and now when I close or minimize a window, the image of the window is still retained. If I take another window, I can "clean" it up, but wiping it around the screen, but this is obviously a nuisance.

Specs:
WinXP OS
Intel Xeon X3220 Kentsfield 2.4 GHz quad-core
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R mobo

EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX


I've done several driver updates, and even rolled back with no luck. Also running dual LCD monitors if that makes a difference.

Window Do Image I Use Preview Previous and I presume this would be the same on other versions of Windows In Vista you could select a file or group of files and then right click on them and select Preview and step through each one to view a full screen image of each one You could also mix bitmaps and jpegs However in Windows I seem to have to right click the file then select quot Open With quot then choose Windows Photo Viewer or Photo Gallery Also It won t let me use quot Open With quot on a selection of files So I can How Do I Use Preview Image like in Previous Window Versions? t view image files that aren t next to each other in the explorer view Also I can t mix jpeg and bmp files in Windows Photo Viewer even if they are next to each other in the Explorer Window What I really want is the old Preview option Is this hidden somewhere nbsp

Guys this is gonna sound stupid I know, I have absolutely no idea how it happened, but my window for resizing my images has managed to move up out of my screen.
I can't grab it to move it down.
How on earth am I gonna get it back?
If I go image/image size, I can't read the top half of the window.
I'm using CS.
Please this is kinda urgent, I need to resize images for a website!!!!

Hi guys, is there a way to hide or remove the user picture at the login screen?

I've managed to change the background image of the login screen, but that big circle that shows a picture of the user is pointless and ruins my image.

You'll need to be signed on as Administrator and show 'hidden files, folders and drives' in Folder Options.

Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and rename the 448X448 user.png to user.pak, (or something).

In Acronis True Image Home 2010, on the Tasks & Logs window, somehow I have got my Validate tasks above my Backup tasks. No amount of semi-random clicking will get them to swap back into a more intuitive order.

I have connected my Xbox one to my Alienware through the HDMI input port. The image will appear full screen and I am able to hit Fn+F8 to switch the HDMI input off. I am wondering how do I make the image appear in a window instead of full screen. I have been looking online for a couple days now and can't seem to find anything. Thanks in advance.
 

A:How To Make The HDMI Input Image Open In A Window?

I might be wrong, but I don't think you can using that method. Windows on the screen are managed by the Operating System of the PC, not the monitor, the monitor will always display what it receives via HDMI input (or DVI, VGA etc) as a full screen image.

Firstly dragging a window in windows desktop shouldnt use 40 percent cpu usage, thats what its doing on mine.

Games run fine and cpu usage is proper. Its the 2D windows. Ive tried everything

video drivers,, clean install everything,, Ive tried it all,,,,,,

it makes my system behave like a Athlon XP ,, when dragging a window claims this much cpu power or just image viewing boosts to 20 percent... Before all this happened,,, it was like 1 to 0 percent no matter what I did in windows, as far as moving or dragging or videos or image viewing,, This has messed up mmy whole windows to be slow,, since everything draws in 2D ,, and it takes up high spikes...

Is the 2D processor on my card dead ? However its still working and fast,, sheeez

A:Certain image editing/viewing software "stopped working" Window close

Seems you did everything you could, however, have you run (full scan) of your anti-virus and malware software. Not sure if it would help, but it cannot hurt. Also you might attempt reinstalling the last HDD to see if there isn't a problem there. If not then it would be wise to attempt to reformat the 500 to see if that is the problem. Good Luck.

BTW, "Welcome to the Seven Forums," and thanks for filling in your system specs. . .

A:Has anyone use the free Image backup . can they backup Window 10 Pro

They are all well known tools - a major favourite (and unashamedly I say this my personal favourite) is Macrium Reflect Free.

Probably does not matter too much (although for 32bit eufi tablets I strongly recommend Macrium).

Best strategy is to use your favourite one regularly, but occasionally make a backup with a different one as extra insurance.

Hey guys it is good to be back on here as my problems are always solved it has probably been a few years since my last True Image, or to all Bootable Acronis Image 2014, Clone, 3... or Media Create visit Anyway I am still running my Dell XPS machine with windows XP SP media Center edition It has a dual core ghz pentium CPU GB ram a gb Western Digital hard drive that is less than half full and an Acronis True Image 2014, to Clone, Image, or Create Bootable Media or all 3... Nvidia GeForce graphics card love this machine so darn much as it does everything that I personally wanted to has one I had made back in And I absolutely love Windows XP So being that the thing is years old and I have never had a prior desktop last over years without a hard drive failure I feel as if I am running on borrowed time This saddens me as I take great care of this machine and love it to Acronis True Image 2014, to Clone, Image, or Create Bootable Media or all 3... death Have everything set up the way that I like and I m very comfortable with it I don t adapt well to change LOL So I recently began researching and found that hardware parts are pretty cheap now for this but if the hard drive fails I will lose everything So rather than install a new hard drive should this Acronis True Image 2014, to Clone, Image, or Create Bootable Media or all 3... happen and then boot from the original six and a half-year-old disks Drivers try to find lost photos etc I have learned about cloning software and have been researching it So I purchased a Acronos true image an external Seagate TB HD for other stuff too photos for the wife etc And an internal hard drive dock as well as a brand-new GB Western Digital quot RPM hard drive Identical to the one that came with the machine from the factory What I plan to do is use the dock to clone an identical image on this drive and then copy over it every few months as an update does this sound like a feasible backup should my hard drive mechanically fail Then I can simply swap out the drives since they are identical Now that the remaining question though is should I also use Acronis to create a quot bootable media disc quot and if I should also make an image file to store on the Seagate external hard drive As double and redundant backups I am confused as to the difference between making a bootable media disc and making an image file onto the external hard drive Is the bootable disk needed to load the image file onto a newly installed blank internal HD Or can you use the original Acronus True Image DVD to boot and then transfer the image file on the external hard drive to a newly installed blank hard drive inside the machine Obviously I won t have to If my cloned spare internal Western Digital HD works but I am just curious From my understanding there are options of the clone the bootable media disc and an image file I definitely am going to make a clone onto a brand-new identical internal Western Digital hard drive But where the confusion lies is if I also for redundancy make an image file onto my external hard drive Could I install a blank internal disk into the machine Just say the Western Digital clone backup I purchased for some reason failed in storage say and then use the original purchased Acronus DVD to facilitate transfer of the image file off the external drive and onto the new blank internal drive or is the quot bootable media disk quot that acronos can create needed what is its point and does it contain the image file thereby negating the need for the external HD with image file LoL Thanks million guys Sorry for the long post -Mike nbsp

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

The windows system image backed up on my external hard drive (2TB WD USB3) is not showing while restoring the PC from an image.

The only option available is my hard drive partition on which i also had saved a system image.

What is the reason?
Though windows recommends External hard drive for backing up image when backing up the system.

A:System image on External hard drive is not accesible while restoring PC from image

Your system may not be able to see usb devices at boot. Check in bios for a setting that enables USB at boot. If there isn't such a setting, and if your system is fairly old and can't see the device, you'll have to copy the image to a separate partition on the hd.

I'm trying to use True Image 11 to image the system partition of my laptop. When I get to the place where it asks me to select the partition to image, there are two: the main NTFS system partition and a small recovery partition. Should I select both or just the system partition? I have heard that the recovery partition must be in a certain place on the HD to be usable. If so, and if I needed to restore the image , the recovery partition might not be restored to the same place and would therefore be unusable. Any advice on how to proceed here? Thanks.
 

A:Using Acronis True Image to image disk with hidden recovery partition

you should image it to the recovery partition, although it may not be a good idea to have it on the same HDD
I myself use an external drive which is probably the safest

Hello Antonio, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you could download a Windows 7 ISO for you edition, and use it to create a bootable DVD/USB to install and activate with your COA product key. The tutorial below can help guide you through it.

A:Need help recovering image to dissimilar hardware with True Image 2013

The restore doesn't overwrite the OS (per se) but instead, since you did a full disk image, it will replace all the existing partitions on that disk (if any) with the partitions contained in the image backup -- essentially, erasing the entire disk. When done, what you have on that disk will the same as what is in the image backup.

Don't know about Universal Restore, since I use Redeploy from Macrium Reflect (MR) to do the same, but in the MR version, you do the following:
1) Connect the media containing the image
2) Boot from an MR CD (or USB)
3) Restore the image to the new disk
4) Insert disk or USB that contains the drivers needed for the new PC
5) Select the MR option to recover to different hardware -- MR then scans the PC for hardware and devices and installs the drivers from the disk or USB that you provided
6) Remove USB and/or disk, and reboot
7) Will boot into OS with new drivers installed

I presume that Universal Restore from Acronis works much the same way ...

A:Windows 7 - System Image, Repair Disk, & ISO Image Questions

Users have (at least) two ways to go to overcome those unforeseen problems that occur.
 
a.  Make clones of the hard drive reflecting the O/S.
 
b.  Use backup software which creates a file which can be restored, item for item.
 
I have done both at some time...right now, I prefer making a clone of my O/S (dual-boot) partitions...while backing up data files on extra hard drives I have lying around.  User preference determines whether a user backs up...or creates a cloned image.
 
You might take a look at Macrium Reflect, a program that seems to do each pretty well.
 
Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download - http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx
 
Those ISO files of Windows 7...are covered by this pronouncement here at BC:  Recommending ISOs of Windows Recovery Discs or pre-made ISOs of WinPE-BartPE - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic382841.html .
 
In addition to being illegal...those .iso files...or any file NOT obtained from a legal, authorized source...are subject to reflect code, errors, malware...or something else that the user has not bargained for, IMO.  If I were a malware misanthrope...that would be my favorite vector...giving an unknowing public something "for free" that they have no desire to legitimately obtain.

I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that has dual drives - c & d. The c drive crashed and was replaced by dell. We are now trying to do a system image recovery from the d drive. We are following How to do a System Image Recovery in Window7 from seven forums.com http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/675-system-image-recovery.html
After Selecting the System Image from the D Drive (STEP TWO, # 5 and 6), the computer prompts to create a repair disk. The only way to move forward is to create or not create the disk. In either case, it then has you restart the machine, takes you through the process again.... Step 5/6.... Never gets to Step 7 to actually DO the System Recover!
What am I missing. We have been at this for over 2 weeks and any help would be much appreciated!

A:Windows Image Recovery-Can't move forward after selecting Sys Image

Are you booting off your Windows DVD? Or are you using the Windows Recovery Environment by hitting DEL or PF8 to pull up Windows Repair?

I would think the only time you are asked to create a repair disk is during the actual TAKING/creating of the System Image (after it is complete).

I see this frequently enough that I am now wanting to know why.

I have set Acronis True Image to limit the maximum file size to 1.95 GB. This is to facilitate putting them onto a DVD later. I don't understand why, occasionally, a file in the middle or beginning of a set is smaller. In the below example, numbers 1 and 8 are much smaller than I would expect, especially #1.

Why is this?

A:Question about the image files Acronis True Image makes

Number 1 is the backup of the partition table (MBR). The others are just smaller because the backup ran out of data before making a full one. The second backup appears to be incremental.

If this is a single backup (which would mean maybe around 35 GB's of used space in XP), then I have no idea why 8 is smaller.

Hello,

Before I re-imaged my laptop, I made sure to do a backup of personal files + a system image in case things went wrong.

The imaging was successful, and now, the new Win7 OS recognizes the old backup as a backup from another computer (as it should).

However, is it possible to manage this old backup? (manage => edit)

Now that I don't need the old system image, I would prefer to get rid of it ... plus, I created a backup for my current image so there's quite a bit of space used by backup files..

Thanks

Should be able to just delete it, but more detail is needed for the best answer.

I have Corel Photo House and Photoshop 4 photo editing software. I don't really use them a lot, and admit that I'm not very good at doing most things. One thing I've had occasion to do lately is to take a person from one image and copy it to a second image. The problem is that it takes a really steady hand, and patience, to trace around the outline of what I want to copy. I try to facilitate this by slowing my cursor to crawl speed, but I still have trouble accurately following the subject's outline.

Is there software -- preferably freeware -- that has an easy way of transposing/copying portions of an image?

This happens most often to my Windows 7 Forum shortcut.
This what it looks like now.......



Now and then, it would change into something like a globe. A little later, it would revert back to the " normal " image.

What causes that ?

NO, I did not install anything when this happened last time.

Thank you.

A:desktop shortcut image changes then back to initial image

Does the screen flicker when this occurs?

If so, I'd guess it's something to do with Windows temporarily switching from Aero to Basic for some reason.

That in itself would suggest you may have some sort of a conflict with your graphics card or setup.

You might want to check the Event Logs and see if there is anything untoward going on.

I've been dual-booting Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate, but a while back my Windows 8 kind of went "South" and wouldn't boot at all (I got an error message that a device was "not attached"). I have a recent system image on an external USB hard drive, but when I boot to "system recovery" using my repair disk it can't seem to find my USB drive at all.

The tutorials here mention installing a SATA driver to access disks that are not recognized, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Just thought I would share the solution I found to my problem mounting .iso images in Windows 8 Pro.

The very helpful error message I was getting was this:

and in powershell I got this:
Essentially the problem is that windows .iso mounting does not like 'sparse' files. I had used Acronis backup to backup my original .iso files and this DOES use sparse files. You can check if a file is 'sparsed' by looking at the files details in properties. The 'P' in the attributes represents a sparse file. See the screenshot below.

The result? When I restored my .iso images I could no longer mount them.

The simplest solution I have found is to just copy the .iso to a new file - this seems to create the new file without the sparse flag set.

Hope this helps somebody!

A:Windows 8 refuses to mount .iso image because image is 'sparse'

For anyone that is curious.. Sparse files are files that have "reserved" space in them that is not technically part of the data. An application can create a sparse file so that it leaves room to expand it in the middle without having to recopy all the data. I can understand why Acronis would do this for a backup image.

Shouldn't Acronis also have a file viewer?

On Recovery Partition.
 
Hi,
 
Have had a search and can find nothing concerning the question I have - I'm not even sure if this is the correct forum.
 
I have a Dell Venue 11 Pro (5130) running Windows 8.1 Pro, what I would like to do, if possible, is to replace the factory restore on the recovery partition with a custom image so that if or when
the factory rest option is selected it uses my custom image and not the default one.
 
The problem I am having is that the default image is only 6GB in size where as when I create my custom image it is approx 14GB in size.
 
Is there a way of editing the default image to add in certain settings and software?
 
Regards
 
Fugazi

A:Replacing Factory Restore Image With Custom Image ...

Modifying the System Recovery partition is not what you want to do.  You will not be able to modify is, and you may find that you need to use this at some time in the future.  I would suggest that you use a program like Macrium Reflect.  You can find a tutorial for it here.

Hi! I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong forum and if a thread on this subject already exists, I just couldn't think of any other place to put it.

I got Windows 8 and it's working pretty much perfect after I fixed a few issues. But there's an interesting thing happening, and I don't know if it's a 'feature' or something I can correct. When I go into one of my image folders and right click on one of my pictures to set it ask my desktop background, it will work, but then the image folder will scroll all the way all the way back up to the top, and it does this every single time.

This is kind of annoying, and I'm not sure why it does this... is there anything I can do about it, or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!

Been messing with this for days. When I open the Control Panel I do not have the option to switch the view on the left side pane. All that is there is the See Also window. I went to view, Toolbar, Customize and added the views icon to the toolbar. As long as I keep the customize toolbar box open and move it up or down I can see it on the toolbar. Once I close the Customize Toolbar window the view icon grays out on the tool bar. My back button is the same way. I checked in another users window and the control panel is fine. I have Windows XP SP3. I am the Admin on the PC. Any help would be great.

i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

I would like to be able to open a new browser window in Firefox which would start at the identical location to the one that's open rather than opening at the home page.

In IE, File / New / Window works well for this purpose, and then if you wanted it to start at the Home Page, you could just run Explorer a second time.

It gives the flexibility of going off on other trails with the additional window, but still having the original window open. I'm not crazy about tabs which take up extra space in the browsing window. However, is there even a way to open a new tab at the same location as the current window? Maybe I'm missing the joy of tabs somehow and am stuck in my old way of thinking. Still, I would like to know if what I want is possible.

Thanks.

A:[SOLVED] Open new browse window at same location as current window

Hi I don't think that is an option but I understand what your after and this is the way I do it with keyboard short cuts of

Ctrl + C = copy (While holding down Ctrl tap the C key once)
Ctrl + V = paste
Ctrl + T = new tab
Ctrl + N = New page

OK starting with tabs which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now to copy the URL Ctrl + C your computer will remember this link until you either copy something else or you shut down the computer.

Now we open a new tab Ctrl + T a new blank tab will open and the URL location is blank but with the cursor already in it so we paste the URL there by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have the duplicate page

Now working with a new page there is just a couple of small differences.

You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (once again do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now we open a new page with Ctrl + N a new page will open but the difference is it will not be blank it will be your home page so as there is already a URL that we want to get rid of. The simple way is to once again click on it only once to select it then paste the saved URL by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have your duplicate page. I may have made this sound involved but just try it once and you will see it's quite simple.

Another thing I do is when I have a google search page open or a page with several links I want to look at.

I hold down Ctrl while I click on links that way I still have my original page and everything opens in new tabs.

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

A:Bad image: SensAPI.DLL not a valid Windows image

Update: AVG Resident Shield has flagged up a trojan described as Generic11.ATBQ. When selecting more details it gives svchost.exe.
I can find next to nothing about this on the internet. Previously I've clicked Heal but it has come back. This time I checked Power User and clicked remove to vault. Too early to say what effect this has had.

Does anyone know about this trojan and could it be related to the sensapi.dll issue described in my original post?
The sensapi.dll pop-up pops up nearly 200 times in the first minute at startup with zlclient.exe in the title bar. Once I've closed all these by clicking the x in the corner it seems to behave itself.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Edit: I turned off System Restore as the virus report was giving a restore file as the source.

I need a little help figuring this out. I made a backup image a while back on my network. Now that I want to re-image, I reboot as requested, wait for it to load, and Windows says it can't find my backup, "if it is on a network, close this window , type the network location."

Putting in the network location does nothing, I'm just returned to the screen where it would list the backup image if it had found it, but there's nothing there.

Thinking perhaps my NAS was the problem I copied the image onto a portable hard drive, but after rebooting into the restore program, Windows 7 doesn't find the USB drive.

I know the image was good, because I got an "image successful" message when I made it. Any ideas?

A:Image Restore can't find Backup Image

You say Windows can't find the USB drive, or is it the image file within the drive that it can't find?

A:"Bad image" / "not a valid Windows image" error

Update: fixed!

I appreciate that y'all help folks for free on here, but nonetheless got a little bit impatient looking at a possible week's waiting time, messed around a bit and what I did ended up fixing it. Hopefully sharing this info here may help others with this same issue.

After running multiple antivirus, anti-malware, and anti-spyware scans that still didn't fix it, what ended up working was running sfc\ scannow to scan and repair system files and deleting the dll file mentioned in the error message (and that folks here said looked like a malware / spyware generated dll rather than an authentic file), mswnlwkl.dll. I no longer get the error and now Firefox works just fine again.

My best guess was that it wasn't a malware that was generating the error messages, but rather one of the spyware or antivirus programs I used deleted a virus that had changed some information somewhere in the registry or a DLL file (or whatever), and that was calling on this rogue DLL file that Windows couldn't recognize. Basically a virus was removed but left behind traces that screwed with some of the system files.

Hi,
It seems that either I forgot my password or used some illegal characters in my Drive Image 7 image password. The later is more probable. Is there anyway to recover it. Symantec was pathetic on Help an Support.

A:Drive Image Problems Restoring Image

I think your C: drive when you boot from the Win98 CD is your CD itself. That's because its DOS you are in, and the primary partition (if it is still readable) is NTFS.

Can you delete any partition in the target disk and try the restore again? Make sure you have nothing but unpartitioned space before you start. This may get rid of the error.
