General Computer Support / Re: Problem with System Restore
« on: March 02, 2012, 01:36:43 pm »
D7 has a repair for system restore.  Not sure if it works or what exactly it does as I have never tried it.  Worth a shot.  Here is a link to the latest version:

That doesn't look right to me.  It looks like it is grayed out so that no changes can be made.  If that is the case, it is the result of a virus.  Either you are currently infected with something, or this is the result of a past infection.  First thing I would do is run combofix and see what it finds.  Then we can take it from there.

Gfxui is the control panel for the Intel GMA graphics chipset.  Just download and install your video drivers again.

I attempted the Repair Install, at first, with the ISO file containing SP1, you sent.  It stopped abruptly, telling me I had to use a non-SP1 CD.

So my thinking was correct afterall.  Glad you got it to work Bubba!  :smiley:

The repair install is actually doing an upgrade. So you should be able to use the SP1 disk you got.

Sorry about that.  This is absolutely correct.

Bubba, download the System Update Readiness Tool for your OS from the link below.  Run it and then reboot when it is finished.  Then try installing SP1 again.

Is this any help?  :undecided:

EDIT - Glad you got it sorted out!  It's a mystery why the laptop was missing those files.

I'm stumped on this one.  Obviously, something in the OS or some sort of installed software is preventing the install of the printer.  Have you tried disabling all startup items (clean boot) and then tried the printer install? 
I think at this point I would do a repair install - that might correct this issue.  Notice I said might.  :wink:

Hey Bubba,

I wasn't aware that you did not have SP1 installed.  Not sure if Shane would agree with me on this or not but, I would try installing SP1 first to see if it remedies your issue before trying a repair install.  You never know.
In order to use a Win7 SP1 disk to do a repair install SP1 needs to be installed on the machine.  So, you would either have to install SP1 before attempting the repair anyway, or you would have to find a ISO of Win7 without SP1 to use for the repair.  Just my thoughts.  :cheesy:

This might be a stupid question but, have you checked to make sure the Print Spooler Service is running on the laptop?  Have you tried restarting the Print Spooler Service?  Are you trying to install the driver from the disk that came with the printer?  If so, what happens if you try and install the printer from Devices and Printers instead?

0x00000002 is usually associated with an incompatible printer driver.  Are you sure that the driver you are trying to use is a Windows 7 driver?  Also, strange but I can't find much of anything googling this Brother model number.  It doesn't even show up with a search of Brothers website.  :shocked:

Hmm...strange that you are still getting that error message after a successful repair install.  I'll keep thinking!  :thinking:

Shane is right, a repair install would be the best and quickest course of action at this point.  Looking at the shortcuts on your desktop, it is no wonder that you are having at least this problem.  :shocked:  I see a few different tweaking programs, Advanced System Care, at least a few anti-malware programs, and a couple of registry cleaners/tweakers of some sort.  Also, what antivirus program are you running?  I have seen McAfee cause this exact problem you are experiencing.

Maybe also try clicking the Reset button on the Advanced tab in Internet Properties.

Are you running Windows 7?  Have you checked your Security and Privacy settings in Internet Properties?

 Excellent idea to have this forum Shane.  :smiley:

In addition to Shane's advice above, did you run the Kaspersky removal tool and the Norton removal tool after uninstall?  Both of these AV's leave behind an awful lot of crap that you need those tools to remove.  See it all the time, especially with Norton.

I've got a feeling this is probably going to be a clean install situation.  My brother's laptop broke on him and he pulled the hard drive out of it and put it in another laptop (different make and model, different hardware, etc...) so the hardware profiles and drivers are probably all kinds of messed up.  Just kinda using it as a guinea pig to see if there's anything I can do to get it working right before I have to admit defeat, back everything up, and start fresh.

No wonder you are having issues with it.  You are lucky that you were even able to boot the thing up!

Cool!  Didn't know that was in there.  Can it be run from the WR program itself?

Sounds to me like your file extensions have been compromised, which is very common after a virus removal.  Go to the following link and download the exe file extension fix, save it to your desktop, run it and reboot.  You might also want to download the pdf file extension fix as well.  You will probably have to re-install Adobe Reader too.  Also, the lnk one will restore your shortcuts to working, if they don't work too.  All this is assuming you are running Windows 7 as you didn't say.
