  1. Follow the tutorial at the driverpack site. Nlite will not install the driver packs. There is a utility built into Driverpack DB that does all that. Check it out brfore you try to add the driver pack.
  2. Driver Packs is a good place to start. That being said I must say that using the SATA Drivers for your particular Motherboard is best. Ya know the one on the disk you got with your mobo, unless you have a Dell, HP or any other brand that you don't get an actual install disk. I slipstreamed them in with all the others using nlite, and haven't had a problem with the SATA drive at all.
  3. You can install with your sp2 disk and upgrade to sp3 via windows update (Slower), or slipstream sp3 into a new install disk and install from that. (Faster). Look at the unattended thread here for advise. This is provided you can keep your machine up long enough to do it.
  4. It turned out I had a dns changer trojan on my computer. I went to Spyware behave: http://forums.maddoktor2.com/index.php?showtopic=9590 and followed the instructions. I sent my logs and such to the folks at What the Tech malware forum: http://forums.whatthetech.com/HijackThis_L...emoval_f27.html They will look at you logs and work with you on removing all the nasties on you machine. Do as they say and Do Not!!!!do anything on your own.
  5. I got it fixed Thanks to all who replied
  6. Well All I got it fixed I followed the advise from the Spyware Beware website. I am happy to report that all is well
  7. Reinstalled Windows got reinfected by Firefox browser backup. Ran AVG and malwarebytes. Antivirus caught and killed all the viruses and 3 trojans. Malwarebytes caught 3 more trojans. Everything seems ok with the exception of not being able to go to windows update or mcafee update. I can live without mcafee since I got AVG. but not windows update. I cant even install netframework3.5. Below is my host file # Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp. # # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one # space. # # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol. # # For example: # # rhino.acme.com # source server # x.acme.com # x client host localhost I deleted the localhost line and retried to download from MS and it times out. I dont know what else to do.
  8. I have Malwarebytes and ran a scan on the whole computer. It found 1 thing. I removed it and restarted, no change. I do recall a file called that, several days ago and it was removed. I guess without success I have one other thing I can try before I do a total wipe and reinstall of windows. no time to explain. Will post back results.
  9. not only ms sites it also like mcafee too I use firefox
  10. I get msn whenever I manually enter the url for the update site. I also cannot update my antivirus either. It looks like I am infected in some way. I also can't get into my hd with my windows install on it Looks like a complete wipe of all hard drives to make sure I got it Is there a way to do it thru regedit?? also it affects Google Chrome too
  11. Whenever I try to connect to Microsoft update page I get redirected to the MSN page this occurs both in IE7 and Firefox. Any suggestions?
  12. As You requested I get no dropped packets I got Comcast coming out due to a slow connection issue tomorrow. This all started over the weekend.
  13. Yes it is however all i get is this See Attachment
  14. I am looking for an alternate download site for DX9c. For some odd reason I cannot get it from Microsoft, even though I have a "Real" copy of XP. I get a message like the server is down when I try. Thanks
  15. I want to make the color of the font on the shutdown window darker so it is a bit easier to see. How would I go about it?
  16. Well I did as you say and all is well. I got everything coded and tested. Thanks
  17. So if I understand correctly the coding is fine. "E:\XP Pro SP3 Upd WMP11 + XPize\$OEM$\$1\Install" is where everything lives on my hard drive. The programs also reside in \$OEM\$1\$progs on the cd/dvd. I should have stated that in the first post.
  18. I have a question on setting up my RunOnceCmd file. for my unattended install cd/dvd. This is the location of all the items I wish to have RunOnce install:E:\XP Pro SP3 Upd WMP11 + XPize\$OEM$\$Progs. This folder consists of 20 programs I made into 7.Z Switchless installers (all work as they have been tested) This is what I have so far cmdow @ /HID @Echo Off SET PP=%SystemDrive%\Install\ SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Programs" /f REG ADD %KEY%\009 /VE /D "7Zip" /f REG ADD %KEY%\009 /V 1 /D "%PP%7Zip.exe -y /q /r:n" /f REG ADD %KEY%\019 /VE /D "WinXP Image Resizer Power Toy" /f REG ADD %KEY%\019 /V 1 /D "%PP%ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe /s /v/qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\029 /VE /D "dotNetFx35setup.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\029 /V 1 /D "%PP%dotNetFx35setup.exe /qb" /f REG ADD %KEY%\039 /VE /D "TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe" /f REG ADD %KEY%\039 /V 1 /D "%PP%TweakUiPowertoySetup.ex /qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\049 /VE /D "McAfee Security" /f REG ADD %KEY%\049 /V 1 /D "%PP%DMSetup-Serial.exe /silent /noreboot /NO_UI" /f EXIT This is all I have attempted so far. The above was created with RunOnceEx.cmd Creator. I also will not include this in my cd/dvd disk until I get it working. The programs do load as I watched them just yesterday do so. It was quite impressive seeing something I created with people like yours help work. Am I on the right track?
  19. In other words run the installer then archive the extracted files along with the following in the config.txt Thanks Run the downloaded installer and use the extracted files. The .cmd file should look like this: @echo off msiexec /i openofficeorg24.msi ALLUSERS=1 SELECT_WORD=1 SELECT_EXCEL=1 SELECT_POWERPOINT=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL /qb! /norestart exit or @echo off msiexec /i openofficeorg24.msi ALLUSERS=1 SELECT_WORD=1 SELECT_EXCEL=1 SELECT_POWERPOINT=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn /norestart exit The second does not have the progress bar.
  20. Thanks Since I posted I redownloaded the open office installer, and redid the steps and I get the same error box The new installer did not have the instamsiw.exe and instamsia.exe files
  21. This is way cool However when I try to make a installer for Open Office. Everything goes fine until I try to run the installer. Then I get an Unspecified Error Box. I have a folder with the following files in it: 7zS.sfx, config.txt: ;!@Install@!UTF-8! RunProgram="OOo_2.4.1_Win32Intel_install_wJRE_en-US.exe" ;!@InstallEnd@! OOffice.7z and OOo_2.4.1_Win32Intel_install_wJRE_en-US.exe . The last one is the installer created. Open office Looks like it has 3 installers included in it. instmsiw.exe, instmsia.exe, and OOo_2.4.1_Win32Intel_install_wJRE_en-US.exe. If i click on the file of the first 2 I get an, wrong os or os version for application, error box. What am I doing wrong, I created several other installers using this method before stumbling onto this problem. Again this rocks
  22. I just tried to download Alternative RounOnceEx and I get a 404 error. Is the site down??
  23. Well I finished the latest unattended install disk. The problem was the Itl. update pack. Now I have an Eng. install so all is well
