Q: "REMINDER: Window appears when not using IE

Every few minutes a rectangular window pops up with the title of REMINDER (full date and time) Below is the Heading "This page cannot be found...followed by al the things that might cause it if you were in IE. At the bottom are two lines in smaller font: Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer

There is no way to close the window - no buttons at top, etc. Only way to close is to use CTRL/ALT/DEL The "program" is called REMINDER.

Where does this come from? All Google references are to its appearing while using IE if connection to web is broken, etc.

Preferred Solution: "REMINDER: Window appears when not using IE

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've tried some solutions to this rare situation and nothing.

I mean the following:
By the way, I've noted that:
1.- In 'View-Choose Details' window, there is "Name" option only (may be this is normal):
2.- But, in 'Tools-Folder Options' window, in the 'View' tab, option "Always show menus" (normally in "Files and Folders" section, second position) has disappeared!:

I didn't pressed the "Restore Defaults" button because I think this is for other purpose, isn't it?

So, I don't know what to do... I wonder someone of you may give me a hand to solve this...
In other words, please help me!

Thanks in advance,

Can't open any programs cuz this annoying window "Open with" pops up asking what application I want to open this file with? If I go browse and select the file (i.e. IE) then another window opens asking if I want to run, save or cancel. When I hit Run.... windows close and nothing happens. Pretty much dead in the water here. Tried recovery to an older config.... no help. It even happens on Safe Mode. Any help?

A:Can't open Apps - "Open With" window always appears

Hello Seahunt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like your associations for these file extensions may have been messed up. Downloading and merging the .lnk (LNK) and .exe options in the tutorial below to restore their default associations and hopefully fix this for you.

Hope this helps,

Hello i Have the above problem while I try to share a printer on a domain network.
My windows firewall (localy) is also damage, is that the problem that I have to solve first?

A:Windows 8 - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. [OK]

You may need to reinstall the printer. Remove the printer driver from Control Panel\Programs and Features, then add the printer from Devices and Printers.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

Hi all,
I recently created a new user account on a win 7 home premium machine before I'd had much experience with win 7 (but years with 2000 and xp).
Instead of users\Roger\ it created users\user which I now realise is not correct. (I didn't call my account "user", either, before you ask. )
Can I fix this without deleting the profile and starting again, as I've done hours of work since that little stuff up.
Thanks in advance,

I have this window that pops up all the time and the title of the window is "reminder Saturday April 24, 2004, 9:45pm" (it'll say whatever date it is and the current time). the window itself i guess tries to connect to the net cause it says The Page Cannot Be Displayed blah blah.
there's no X button on the top right to close the window and the only way to do it is ctrl/alt/delete and end task. What is this??? It might've started after I started using/then removed "Pop Up Blocker".
 

A:Annoying "reminder" pop up

It shounds like you have what most of us refer to as a virus.
Try downloading PestPatrol at Pestpatrol.com.
Many of these are very simple, not destructive, and easy to remove.
Try looking in the startup folder and see if it is there.
It may also be an entry in the Registry. If you are comfortable with editing the registry try the following.
Go to start, run. Type in the box regedit and click ok.
Then follow the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SOFTWARE
MICROSOFT
WINDOWS
CurrentVersion
Run

Look for an entry that does not belong or make a copy and post it so that it can be reviewed and we can tell which entry to remove.

Of note, any modifications to the registry happen immediately and can potentially permanently damage the operating system. A recovery is very difficult and you must be comfortable with using a boot disk and making modifications ad a dos type prompt level.

Pest Patrol is a good utility to remove unwanted add ware.

Well, this only started recently. Apparently, I somehow messed up my computer and now I am loaded with annoying pop-ups. However, that is not what I am posting about. Lately, I have been getting this window saying:

Buffer overrun detected!

Program D:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.

This is the first time I have seen such a window in my life, and I don't really know what to do about it. Also, after I click "ok," explorer just restarts. Thanks in advance.

That problem might very well be related to your popup problem, so first thing is to get rid of that malware.

I am not sure what the window is called it's the one that pops up when you hit alt tab and allows you to scroll between open top level programs The Alt Tab window suddenly appears and scrolls rapidly between all the open programs I can access the task bar and open more pinned programs I can launch the task manager but I am unable suddenly appears... ALT, TAB window to close ALT, TAB window suddenly appears... any programs nor do a graceful shutdown of the pc I have scanned the event viewer and see the errors that resulted from a hard power down but nothing in the log that would point the problem There appears to be no particular sequence of open programs that cause the problems it happens when I am typing in a document editing an image or simply viewing a web page The problem existed before I upgraded to Win from WinVista Frankly it was one of the major reasons I did the upgrade Given the subject of this posting I don't even know the correct nomenclature of the problem subsequently my online searches have been futile Any info i e what do I call the problem would be greatly appreciated Dan

A:ALT, TAB window suddenly appears...

Since this is a long term problem, I would tend to suspect the keyboard. Check for stuck keys, and if that doesn't cure the problem, try a different keyboard.

This is the main reason your computer is infected. Visiting cracksites/warezsites - and other questionable/illegal sites is always a risk.

Even a single click on the site can drop multiple forms of very serious malware, many of which disable your onboard protection, and System Restore.

If you install the cracked software, you are running executable files from these dubious, unknown sources. You are in effect giving these sources access to information on your hard disk, and potential control over the operation of your computer.

Additionally, cracked programs are illegal. Before posting for help, uninstall any such applications.

Referring to the Forum Rules which you should have read at the time of Registering at this forum, TSF does not support illegal activity. As such, be advised that any request for assistance in removing malware may go unanswered, or may be discontinued, if the cracked (illegal) software is still present on the machine.

In 2006, a study revealed that 59% of keygens and crack tools downloaded from peer-to-peer networks contained malicious or "unwanted" software.

What to do if a questionable pop up window appears?

For example, if I'm doing some research on Google and I start clicking on many sites. Some of them will obviously be safe, but I might go on a not-so-great site and get a pop up window telling me to download an antispyware program (like Antivirus 2009 ). I've read somewhere that even if I click on the "X" to close the window, it might be too late. Would "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" be a good idea?

A:What to do if a questionable pop up window appears?

That is the better option. Ctrl Alt Del. the X is probably too late. I would still scan my PC.

For a couple of weeks, a mystery window has been appearing on my screen, and immediately closing again before I can identify it. I haven't been able to discern a pattern to it yet.

I've scanned my computer with MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes, and it's come up clean - doesn't look like malware. But I'd like to identify the program and deal with whatever it's trying to tell me. Any idea how to go about this?

I'm using an up-to-date copy of Win7 Pro.

Thanks!

A:Identifying window that closes as soon as it appears

Welcome to Seven Forums rschaefe. Does this window flash reliably? That is, can you expect it to flash within a certain time period, or when performing certain steps? It's possible you may be able to capture it using the Problem Steps recorder.

Problem Steps Recorder

The only other thing I can think of is a scheduled scanner task perhaps. Like an end to a Windows Defender scan for instance, which might conceivably flash a window quickly, but would create a log file with a time stamp that would correspond to the time period of the flash I believe. Another possibility would be event viewer event at the time the flash occurred.

What is causing this? How can it be stopped?

A:An 'Open with' window appears after login

I waited for someone more knowledgeable to answer your questions - but seeing no posts, I'll step in.

My guess as to what caused it:
Something barfed and wrote a log file or a part of a log file to one of the start up folders and there is no file extension on the file. Thus, every time you log in, the computer tries to open this file.

My guess as to how to stop it:

1) unhide this info: File Extensions - Hide or Show

2) unhide this too: Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

3) look in this folder for the file or shortcut to the file that you keep seeing open:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
If it is there - delete it.

4) look in this folder for the file or shortcut to the file that you keep seeing open:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
If it is there - delete it.

If the file is not in either of those two places, then you might need to look in the registry for a "run entry" that is causing the file to try and open. Since this is unlikely, I'll wait to hear the results of the steps above before posting how to work with the registry.

If you opt to open the file in Notepad and then use the File > Save As feature, you can locate the offending files location - but deleting the file might not solve the whole issue if there is a shortcut pointing to it.
BTW, the only reason that I can think of for your having to press close twice to dismiss the "open with" dialog box is - the file is being opened twice or there are two such files being opened.

I have searched to see if this was asked before without any success. Maybe someone has run into this problem before.
When I open "my computer" or "control panel" after I close it...it automatically goes into Internet Explorer as a blank page. Most of the time, when I close the IE blank page...it stops responding and I have the control-alt-delete to "end the program"
Thanks in advance for any help.

Possibly malware - anything openning ie on its own raises an alarm in my books. Post a HJT log to the malware removal section of the forum and let the experts take a look at it

A:Wireless connection appears available but when connecting "Limited Access"

It could be that the IT department at your work is restricting which computers can access the Internet through the router. MAC filtering on the router is one way of doing it, but not foolproof.

Hi, I am trying to fix this computer for my uncle. Every time I try to access the CD rom drive an error messege comes up. I do not know what the problem is. If anyone else has found this problem and fixed, or knows how please let me know.

Error messege: CD rom drive not ready

Sys specs

Win 98

Toshiba CD-Rom Drive model no. xm-6202b, if that helps anything.

I need to fix this problem before the first of April. :hotbounce
 

A:*URGENT* "CD drive not ready" messege appears when trying to access CD

If the computer correctly detects the CD-ROM drive when booting, its probably not that there is a loose cable connection, but check that anyway.

You probably have a dead CD-ROM drive. They are INCREDIBLY cheap now. Buy another one and replace it.

Need "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer"

Previously used WinXPsp2.

Now I've formatted and installed winXPsp3, after installing office2003 as usual.

The problem is I can not print using the "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer" which is a virtual printer office2003 and "Printers and Faxes" does not appear, as I set it up or I can do.

If I have installed the "Microsoft Office Document Imaging"

It is not anything abnormal. If the Optical Disc Drive is set to be the first boot device, then every startup will try to boot from it. If there is no bootable disc in that ODD, it will not show the "Press any key to boot CD/DVD" notification, and will automatically search for the second boot device, which is the HDD.

Remove the windows disc from the ODD tray, and try startup your computer. Let us know the results. Is it still saying ntoskrnl.exe is missing there?

Also, let us know the source of the windows disc. It may be a corrupted one itself.

Hello everyone This is my first time posting here so I ask that you please bear with me I am a freelance computer tech who works on people's PCs in my spare time I am working on a customer's PC now they are an older couple who mainly uses the system for little tasks no major gaming or media or anything which is funny once you see some appears PC loses "No picture, Signal" message randomly of the specs on their system and though I have some ideas what may be wrong with it I am unable to pinpoint anything specific and so I turn to the experts First off some specs on their system It's PC randomly loses picture, "No Signal" message appears an HP Media Center PC case but components have been changed in it from what they've told me It has an ECS Nettle Mobo with an AMD Phenom X CPU running GHz The GPU is an ASUS brand nVidia GT It has GB RAM x GB x MB The PSU is a LiteOn PS- - HA The reason they wanted me to look at it is because they reported that the screen would seemingly at random go blank with a quot No Signal quot message The CPU still seemed to be running but nothing on screen They said this also occasionally happened as soon as they tried to start up the PC and would never even see the system post But again they said it sounded like the PC was running but no image I have the PC at my shop now and I have been unable to duplicate this issue I have run Prime and MSI Kombuster just to stress test the CPU and GPU but so far everything seems to be fine I opened the case and checked connections and looked for any shorts but I couldn't find anything odd Their PC had been running pretty heavily when I first looked at it CPU activity was heavy even though they had no apps running in the foreground I ran Spybot and CCleaner on it and it seems to be doing better in that regard so if that was the cause than maybe it's already fixed but I'm not certain of that So I guess my question is Is there any diagnostic steps that I may have missed that could help me troubleshoot this My guess is that it's an overheating issue but as I said I have not been able to duplicate the problem and even w the stress tests the system seems to perform OK I've read it could also possibly be the mobo or PSU but I'm not really sure how to specifically narrow it down to these If anyone can help I would sure appreciate it and if I've left out any necessary info please let me know and I'll try to provide it

I set my PC up as dual boot, with XP on the C drive and 98 on the D (or is it E) drive. But when I boot under 98, during the boot process I get two options:
- Windows XP Setup
- Microsoft Windows (which is Windows 98)

Of course the cursor by default lands on Windows XP Setup, so if I do nothing that launches automatically and I have to quit, restart, etc.

I figure I must have installed this when I was initially setting up XP. Is there some way to get rid of it? I no longer need to "set up" XP, and want it to just boot into 98 by default when I select that drive as my boot drive.

Thanks - and great to find this forum. I'm a knowledgeable Mac guy but pretty uneducated when it comes to the PC.

Hi I've just about completed the migration of my XP programs to my new Windows x installation All my programs work astronomy related area appears locked. continue" "Registry error Cannot except for "Registry area appears locked.

A:"Registry area appears locked. Cannot continue" error

Try running it in compatibilty with vista, select run as an administrator also - since the fix is for vista maybe it will work with those settings (I read you have already used administrator and xp, but who knows, also did you try just administrator?):
When I run MaxPoint in Windows Vista, I get the error "Vista - Registry appears locked...". How do I fix this?

Hi All,

I'm using Outlook 2003 on Widows XP. One of my rules includes "Mark As Read" after moving the email to a folder. It does get marked as read, but the tray notification (envelope) still appears. This defeats the purpose for me, and actually makes it harder (I use multiple folders, so I hunt through each to find the new message). What am I missing, or is this a glitch? I just want it to be marked as read, and NOT show the tray icon.

I found the following post from 2002 that describes the problem I'm having. The thread is closed but it says I can re-ask the question. So, anyone who has a suggestion, I'm ready to listen. I've read it probably has to do with corrupted registry.

Quoted earlier post:"I have a Sony Vaio desktop computer and somehow I lost the function when I insert a cd or dvd I no longer get the window that says, "Windows can perform the same action each time you insert a disk or connect a device of this kind. What do you want to do?" Then you have options such as use realplayer to open, etc. I now have to go into the drive and open it myself. Any help would be much appreciated."

New SSD (running Windows 7) appears as "Disk drive" in device manager, while other drives appear as their product numbers (ST..., WDC...). It's a Crucial BX100 SSD. Can this cause any problems? Is it ok to leave as is? Appears the SSD is already upgraded to the newest firmware.

This is a clone from an HDD, by the way, using Clonezilla.

Another question: do I need to change any Windows 7 options/install any other drives to ensure the system handles to SSD correctly?

Is there a way I can at least access the hard drive to get to the contents?

It doesn't seem to affect my computer, but it is slightly annoying. Here is a screenshot of what is happening.

I'm running Windows 8.1 64-bit

A:Green "Please Wait" screen appears when booting

When did the problem start? Have you scanned for malware? What if you click Cancel?

If this only happens at boot, you need to look at what starts with Windows. Autoruns will tell you more than you need to know - but you might first try WinPatrol - free, but the Pro version is well worth it, IMO.

my motherboard is an ASUS P8H67-M PRO i built my computer a few days ago and haven't really had any major problems but i noticed today when i turn my computer on there is a little message the top left hand corner of the screen i can really make it all out as it is gone in an instant but what i can make out is
"No Devices"

Does anyone know how to fix this? it doesnt make sense as my drives work fine and they are recognised inside the bios. The only issue i have had is i cam to install linux today and i received an error message saying CD/DVD + USB devices not found and i cant help thinking they are linked.

Thanks in advance
 

A:"No Devices" message appears before BIOS loads

Did you install the chipset drivers?

Are there any devices in Device Manager with a yellow ? or triangle next to it.

What version of windows are you running.

Good morning I've read an older thread that a particular installed printer does not appear in Devices amp Printers And I tried all the recommendations there However as the thread title states we suddenly lost the ability to have Devices amp Printers run to completion In our case the green line crawls across the dialogue box but never completes and the box remains empty I've attempted the suggestions in Services to set Bluetooth to Start and Automatic I also made sure the same was true for the Print Spooler I then attempted to uninstall the printer drivers but there's a problem with that too Though the Appears "Devices & - Completely Nothing Hangs Printers" system acts as though it's trying to remove the driver it never does and I'm unable to uninstall any of the other HP printer drivers On top of that I'm unable to print to the XMS printer I've tried but it hangs the page and I'm forced to end the process In Device Driver the printer which is an HP Officejet E does appear when "Devices & Printers" Completely Hangs - Nothing Appears I select quot View - Hidden Items quot On Thursday I allowed the latest quot critical quot Windows update to install with the hope that it might correct the error Nada So I've basically run out of ideas as what else I can do short of resetting Windows I'd truly appreciate "Devices & Printers" Completely Hangs - Nothing Appears any help or advice Thanks amp Enjoy your weekend SG

A:"Devices & Printers" Completely Hangs - Nothing Appears

Get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free (enable rootkit scanning - settings - detections) and scan with it.

Then if clean , try disabling Windows Defender.
Also see if it is working in Safe Mode.

Also run cmd as admin and enter:

Code:
sfc /scannow
then after it is finished and restarted, enter in cmd:

Code:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
attach the sfcdetails.txt here

Hello, i have the windows 7 battery problem i don't i know if it has been fixed yet but i've had my HP ProBook 4710s for about a 9 months now and about a month or 2 ago i saw this red cross on my battery icon and a error message when i click on the battery saying "There is a problem with your battery, so your computer might shut-down suddenly." the battery is charging but it drains really fast ever since that X appeared on the icon. Please help me.

A:Error "Consider Replacing Your Battery" Appears in Windows 7

The message is telling you exactly what the problem is. You're battery is dying or is very close to being dead, so you should replace it. Usually, there is a one year warranty on the battery, so I would contact HP right away.

Another Windows 8.1 mystery:-

When I eject a USB device the "Can now be safely removed" message is not displayed.

Obviously some update has caused this, but which one?

A:"Can now be safely removed" message no longer appears

May have something to do with the notification are icons being unticked. Try putting a checkmark to it.

Hi all I am having a strange problem with my video card I have a MSI PRO PLUS Card and I got it weeks ago I will try to explain what happens its difficult to explain although very easy to see Sorry if my explanation is a bit confused My OS is WinXP PRO SP Well I like racing games and since the morning of today I can see some quot drizzle quot as quot TV interference quot in the shadow appears what would generated on some have games; Located it? "artifacts" of the cars in other words the problem ONLY appears in the dark black shadow where the cars go by It seems some very small artifacts but ONLY on the cars shadows so I can see the quot ground color quot in some parts of Located "artifacts" appears on some games; what would have generated it? the shadow Its very very strange because looks like that Located "artifacts" appears on some games; what would have generated it? the shadow is quot perforated quot and its possible to see what would be quot under quot it quot the ground quot I didn t make nothing different with my video card it was working very well until yesterday - no problems I have already re-installed my video card driver but the problem keeps on My single suspicion concerning to a game that I have installed x EVO and inside which I choose different ways of rendering Open-GL and Direct D TNL Hardware I am not sure but I think that this strange problem can have begun after this As I didnt tried any kind of Located "artifacts" appears on some games; what would have generated it? overclocking and the problem ONLY VERY specific place appears on the cars shadows when they are in ACTION - not on the others eventual quot black dark quot parts of the screen - at first view I can not believe that my video card is with some problem of hardware Anyways I would like some skilled opinion about I would like to clarify that this specific problem does not happens in ALL games I have but in some of them Some hints about what is happening And what could I do to solve it please Thanks a lot in advance for any information nbsp

A:Located "artifacts" appears on some games; what would have generated it?

I don't know for sure, but sometimes when the 3D developers implement some stuff in a strange way, such things can happen.
Let me explain my idea.
It's possible though very strange that they have implemented shadows on the ground by applying an additional polygon (coloured in black / dark) just on top of the ground itself. It would not be usual but it's possible. In that case, if you try to draw more than one polygon belonging to the same plane on top of each other (for example ground + shadow or wall + poster, etc) then the 3D API does not know which one is on front of the other (because none is in front, they have exactly the same coordinates for that plane). Then, sometimes some pixels belonging to the shadow and some to the ground are displayed, randomly. I'm gonna try to find a picture illustrating that behaviour. If that is what happens, there is nothing to do but fire the developers of the game Seriously, a special extension allows developers to do the same thing (2 polygons on 1 plane) without such glitches, but it has to be in the code of the game, so there is no way to fix it afterwards. Not dure if its what's happening. Try to post a screenshot of that area, so people can see it clearly.

Windows 8.1
Sony DVD BDP-BX510 with Wi-fi turned on

I'm trying to use the above capable DLNA DVD player but the item appears, then disappears, then appears and so forth under the PLAY Devices area. (From Charm area - Settings > Change PC settings > Devices)
I deleted it from the Play Devices area when it appears (not easy to do) and then added it back but that didn't help.

At the TV end, the device (Blu Ray player) appears and disappears the same way. My TV has wi-fi and DLNA and works just fine but I want the Blu Ray players DLNA function to work also.

Any ideas???

A:Under "Play Devices" - Blu ray player appears & disappears

Have you gone into the Network settings for the Blu-Ray player to make sure your computer shows up in there? Also the Blu-Ray players are very limited in what they play back. Most times just pictures. If you are wanting to stream movies, you will need a Plex server, and something like a Roku or Amazon Fire.

I've just run all my Kaspersky, etc tools and still get a "Program Has Stopped Working" message for things like Windows Mail, the installer for Windows Live Mail, etcHave restarted, downloaded RegistrySmart and "fixed" 610 things, but still no mail program, etc. Anything else I can do to get back to functionality? Thanks, Nancy

A:"Stopped working" appears on mail, etc startup

Hi Nancy,

You might try doing a System Restore using a restore point dated before this problem to see if it can fix it. This tutorial will show you how to if needed. You may need to use Method Two.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to read this and help me out.

Just a few weeks ago I started having this problem that I first noticed with Audacity. Whenever I would record some audio in Audacity and try to export it, the program would crash. I don't even get to name the file. As soon as the Save As window pulls up, the program crashes.

I thought this was just a problem with Audacity but I was working in Sony Vegas as well last night and the program would freeze if I tried to save my project. It froze in the same way, the window pulls up and then it crashes.

These are the only two programs I have this problem with but having them both come up at the same time leads me to believe that it isn't a problem with the programs themselves but instead with my computer.

Please reply soon,
~Hicoga

This has been happening for the longest time, and is annoying if I need to get on the computer right away. The PC only has 1 user, so I never get a choice at the blue menu of a choice of users, which is fine. But the problem is, it says "weclome" for about 15 minutes before it switches over and the screensaver comes on. Then, I move the mouse and can view the desktop. I searched all over the forums for anything, to no avail.

Hi all

Exactly the above. After doing work in a spreadsheet in Excel and closing it down i'll notice a file has been created on the desktop called "~".

I've attached the file. NB: it isn't usually a .txt file but i had to change it to upload it.

On opening it it opens in Notepad and looks like scrambled up data from this excel spreadsheet aforementioned (I can tell by the email addresses in it). What is this does anyone know?

Cheers
Mark

A:File appears on desktop randomly named "~"

That sounds like the TEMP file that's created when you're working in many of Microsoft's applications. How it's ending up on your desktop is anyone's guess.
