Windows 7 - EMET 2.0
1. I noticed a "?" sign infront of svchost.exe in the DEP column. Wasn't there a few days back ... what is this suppose to indicate? 2. Found the following; c: cd "C:\Program Files\EMET" emet_conf.exe --add "C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe" pause The author said it was an overkill to which I agree but would it be safe to do this and or necessary? What needs to be excluded from this list?

Windows 98SE unusable after installing a new disk drive
Today I picked up a NOS I/O Magic Internal DVD-RW drive from a thrift store, and went to install it in my Windows 98 PC that had an available drive bay. Everything was looking good, and I got the drive installed, put the computer back together, and set it up without a problem. Unfortunately, now I can’t do anything in the operating system. Every time I click on anything, a message pops up saying “This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program manufacturer.” I can’t access My Computer or the file explorer anymore. What programs do work often stop responding and can’t be closed, so they have to be force quitted using Task Manager. Else, they cause an “illegal operation” to occur and the whole desktop disappears except for the program. The whole OS seems to be unstable and glitchy now. I tried restarting several times but it didn’t change anything. I thought it was because the drivers weren’t installed, but I can’t acces
I did some fiddling around in the computer and disconnected my new drive, booted up, and the problem was gone. I checked the manual on the disk that came with my disk drive and saw something about setting up master and slave drives with a switch on the drives. I set that up the way it should be, connected everything up again, and now both drives work and the problems with the system are gone. The problem seems to be solved.
c:\Windows\system32\user.exe The system cannot find the file specified
Trying to install OffiSyncSetup and I'm getting error 0x80070002 - GetFileVersionInfoSize(C:\Windows\system32\user.exe): The system cannot find the file specified. Checked and that file is not in the folder. How can I get & install? Running a Windows 7 Professional Thanks.
On my Windows 7 machine the file user.exe exists here: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\user.exe. Perhaps OffiSyncSetup is not compatible with Windows 7. Best to check the OffiSycSetup FAQs.
What is User.exe and why is it using all of my GPU?
Can someone tell me what this file does? C:\Users\Amber\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Amber.exe I recently noticed my laptop working a lot harder than usual. Upon viewing my system information stats I could see that my computer was idling at 99% usage of my GPU. I sorted through my current processes and found a particular "Amber.exe" to be quite peculiar. My username is Amber, so I'm sure this is where the name comes from. I terminated this process and my GPU returned to idling at 0%. Now I'm wondering, what does "Amber.exe" do? I'm tempted to delete this file as it seems to be causing me nothing but trouble, but it appears to be a Microsoft file so I don't want to get rid of something potentially important. EDIT: I am now convinced this is a result of a virus associated with https://startpage.com, but despite running a full scan using Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner along with attempting to personally delete the file I am unable to rid my laptop of th
Perhaps I should have mentioned that I did preform various malware scans before making this post, and nothing has solved this issue. However, at this point I am convinced that this is a virus of sorts. The log of Malwarebytes scan: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware www.malwarebytes.org Scan Date: 5/5/2014 AmberQA I bet you didn't run scans with Malwarebytes for it clearly found two PUP'S in this scan. Was this scan a full comprehensive scan? 17mins seems like an awfully short time for a full scan. It sounds more like what was just in memory atm.
AQA First we had to clean out the infection. Now we can see what is left of the problem. In order to diagnose your problem you will need to download and install the below Install the WPT (windows Performance Toolkit) http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4847.install-the-windows-performance-toolkit-wpt.aspx , When you have open an elevated command prompt and type the following WPRUI.exe (which is the windows performance recorder) and check off the boxes for the following First level triage, CPU usage, Disk IO Let it run for 60 secs or more and save the file (it will show you where it is being saved and what the file is called Zip the file and upload to us on Onedrive (or any file sharing service) and give us a link to it in your next post.
Then you need to find the same information for play.exe i.e who holds the copyright which is in the Details tab. It could be quite legitimate but just not working properly. The only reference listed is for NTI CD-Maker for Play.exe and could be a background task to monitor for blanks being inserted. The simple fix is to remove the entry from the registry with the usual warning about backing up the registry before making changes. Or just leave it disabled in MSConfig and see if any programs complains.

As suggested, I relocated and changed the extension to .old and restarted my computer. All was well for a few minutes before my fan started to spin rapidly and low and behold, a new "Amber.exe" was in the Startup folder.
No Microsoft program will pick up the username as a rename for the file. Neither would it be actually stored in the Startup folder, you would normally only find the shortcut pointing to the file in its normal location. Click on Start > All Programs > Startup. Has the Icon a shortcut arrow, right click on it and select Properties. If a shortcut it will have a "Open File Location" button which opens an Explorer window with the file highlighted. Right click that and select Details, this should show copyright ownership and previous file name. If you are uncomfortable about deleting it in the 1st place move it from the Startup folder and then rename by changing the extension to a non running form such as .old or .sav. This stops the program being EXEcuted but if you then find a reason it is needed you can undo the change.
What does the details tab show for the file? Check the MSConfig Start up tab for anything unusual, disable all entries and remove the new exe file and reboot. If it does not reappear enable each line one at a time until the file comes back. HairyFool Aha! Now we're getting somewhere. When this Startup Item is enabled it spawns the dreaded Startup Item "Amber.exe" Now, how do I go about removing this terror for good? Startup Item: AMBER-W530 (The name of my laptop) Manufacturer: Unknown Command: C:\Users\Amber\AppData\Roaming\play.exe Location: HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run The properties of Amber.exe are as follows: Type of file: Application Description: Amber.exe Size: 10.9 MB Created: (New date and time depending on when I start my computer) Modified: Monday, April 28, 2014 12:24:04 PM Accessed: (Same time as created)

I get the following pop up on the screen. "Windows cannot find c:/Program files (x86)/verizontb/dt User.exe Make sure you typed in name correctly and then try again.
Every time I try to use the computer I get the following pop up on the screen. "Windows cannot find c:/Program files (x86)/verizontb/dt User.exe Make sure you typed in name correctly and then try again. I asked Verizon about this problem and they referred me to Microsoft. What is my next step??
Hi Herbert, When do you get this error message? Please follow the methods and check if it works fine. Method 1: Let’s test the issue in safe mode with networking. Refer to the link: Advanced startup options (including safe mode) http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows7/advanced-startup-options-including-safe-mode If it works fine in safe mode, perform clean boot. Refer to the link: How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135 NOTE : After troubleshooting, revert the computer to start as usual (Refer to “How to reset the computer to start as usual after clean boot troubleshooting” from the link mentioned above) Method 2: I would suggest you to download and run the latest Microsoft Safety Scanner on your computer and check if it helps: http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx Note : Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means
Incorrect Desktop Icon
Here's a strange one. I'm accessing an app I have developed called WHOS-IN (file name on server is user.exe). See: www.hudsoft.com WHOS-IN has a function to 'Create a desktop Icon' for itself (which works fine on XP & Vista). When run under Win 7 (Pro) the Icon it displays on the desktop is not the WHOS-IN Icon, but a Windows 'system' Icon (the same as seen when viewing a folder containing DLL's or OCX's etc.). Right click on the Icon & display the properties, choose change Icon, and the correct (WHOS-IN) Icon is displayed in the list. Select that Icon, hit OK, Close the properties Window & return to the desktop. The Icon has not changed. Rebooted the machine (cold start) this morning, and the Icon is now correct. Any ideas why the incorrect Icon is displayed initially ? NOTE: The App is developed in VB6, and is compiled with a resource containing 3 different size Icons, so that it resizes correctly in Windows Vista. Resizing also works OK in Windows 7 too. NOTE 2: I also experi

Thanx for the update John! Glad to know that the issue is resolved. Please feel free to reply, in case you face any other issues with Windows in future.
Thanks so much for your attention and help...in the meantime I was able to resolve the problem contacting Verizon fios support....their live chat walked me through a solution...(when I called Microsoft support they tried to sell me a product I already had, that was about it unfortunately they were no help on the phone whatsoever) Again I truly do appreciate your attention and suggestions
Hello John, Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum. Please answer a few questions to clarify the issue: 1. Is this issue specific to Internet Explorer (IE)? 2. How are you trying to access Internet Explorer? Are you trying to access it through the Internet Explorer shortcut icon created on the desktop? If trying to access from the desktop shortcut, then please try the following steps to access Internet Explorer: Press Windows key button + R , type iexplore and hit ENTER. Please check if you are able to access the Internet Explorer. If able to access then the issue rests with the shortcut that was created on the desktop. Browse to the following location: C:\Program Files(x86) \Internet Explorer and double-click on iexplore .Check if you are able to access Internet Explorer. If able to acess then create a shortcut on to the desktop. Hope this information is helpful. If the issue still persists, please post back for further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
to be clear..I did what you said and the error window keeps appearing everytime I open IE in whatever manner
