  1. Hey all, It's been a while since I've been here, but was hoping someone can help me out with the issue that I'm having with Win7. I recently installed Win7 (64bit) Home Premium on my system that was previously running XP pro (32bit), since then I am unable to capture a print screen of any game when running in Full screen mode. I know what you are thinking "what a n00b", "you have to paste it somewhere after", "turn your F-lock key on" or something like that... Let me go over a couple things: 1) Full-screen print screens of games worked wonderful before installing Win7 (was NOT an upgrade, was a full format) 2) Fellow gamers have no issue with Win7 and Print screen in the same game. 3) I know how to use the print screen feature. 4) When I try to print screen a game (Ex: C&C Renegade) it captures my Desktop instead of the Game... WTH?!?! 5) My keyboard is NOT the issue as print screen works fine when the game is in Windowed mode (basically anything that is not full-screen) 6) (and most important) I do NOT want to use a 3rd party software, I would like to correct the issue. I have scoured the internet and found several posts with people having the same issue, but no actual resolution to fix the problem... I am hoping that someone here may have the answer for me. Any ideas??
  2. Hey all, Can anyone suggest a free software that will take a snapshot of the registry, files and can run a compare between 2 snapshots?
  3. Hey all, ...growing a bit tired to manually rebuilding user profiles for Windows XP, wondering if someone has some ideas. I believe the follow is what are needed: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "Wallpaper" "WallpaperStyle" "SCRNSAVE.EXE" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers] All subkeys??? [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows] "Device" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network] All Subkeys??? [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Communicator] "UserMicrosoft RTC Instant Messaging" The Network and Printers keys are easy to export... but how would I export the specific DWORD values for the other listed keys into a .reg format... without all of the extra un-needed values in those keys? Thank in advance
  4. Thanks I will take a peek at this later(lol, I like how the name of the site is RTFM Edu )
  5. Hey all, I have run into a problem... I got a system that is infected with a variant of the Virut & Cutwail infections that are NOT current detections in any of the 39 common antivirus' (verified on virustotal website) Here is my situation, I need to get the computer up and running again ASAP... so I am going to format and reinstall windows, however, it erks me that I could not fix the infection. I would also like to help the AV companies out there by submitting the infections. What I need help doing is creating a clone of a physical drive so that I can play around trying to clean the infection within a VirtualPC... anyone have any Ideas or what is the best way of how I can do this? Thanks in advance
  6. I got another strange batch coding Q: that I cant seem to find the answer to... I have a txt files with a list of files contained within it - Ex: "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\TDSS6784.tmp " "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\TDSS684f.tmp " "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\TDSS9f9b.tmp " How do I remove the trailing space after the file extension? looking at variable modifiers... %var:~0,-1% Should do what I need, however, how do I implement this to process all the lines in my txt file. I could use an array, but I don't know the proper syntax of how to encorperate the modifier, as the below code does not work properly: For /f "tokens=*" %%I in (FileList.txt) do SET Ifiles=%%I&&Echo %Ifiles:~0,-1%>>CorrectedFiles.txt as it just places a bunch of ~0,-1 's in CorrectedFiles.txt Do I have a typo, or is there a better way of doing this within a batch file? Thanks a million
  7. ...same as before. I try to open the resulting files with WinZip and get the error: "Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive" (Opening with 7zip works fine though...) anything else I can try?
  8. All, I will start of with an overview of what I'm trying to do: I need to compress some files in a Spanning Zip archive of no more than 90MB each file... I need to make the spanned files compatible with WinZip, however, that is giving me problems. if I create a solid archive with 7zip command line it works with winzip no problem, however, if I use the spanning feature in the 7zip command line it makes files like "file.zip.001" "file.zip.002" and so on and they will not open/extract with winzip. I would normally just use WinZip command line, however, my company is skimpy and will not spring for the extra cost of the version with command line options... Is it possible to do what I'm asking with 7zip? or is there another free application that I should use to accomplish this? Here is the code that I have currently for 7zip: "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a -tzip -v90m C:\temp\test.zip C:\temp\files\* Any Ideas?
  9. %USERDNSDOMAIN% is a system wide variable that is set by windows if a computer is joined to a Domain. I was trying to make a new variable out of 2 existing variables to grab the data that was contained within the 3rd variable. Both of your replies seem to accomplish this goal in different ways. Thanks
  10. Hey all, First of all, you guys are my lifeline and I want to thank you for all of your help in the past! I am trying to map a network drive, depending on what domain they are on... I can't figure out how to get the dual variable to work properly, here is what I have: set D_Domain1=Server1 set D_Domain2=Server2 set D_Domain3=Server3 set Server=%D_%USERDNSDOMAIN%% net use O: \\%Server%\Share I know that the %'s are wrong and is what is causing my problem... but I don't know how to fix it. %USERDNSDOMAIN% is the user's full domain name and I want to set %Server% as D_InsertUsersDomainHere but the Double %%'s are tripping me up. Any Ideas?
  11. HHO Generator: http://diyhydrogenhho.com/ (I only peeked at the page, as I was just using it as an idea for you) Got a buddy that states he gets 60mpg in an old Ford with a unit that produces 2L/min. I've been researching this myself, however, have yet to find the motivation or the time to try to build one and test it.
  12. Have you tried the Tab key? This should take away the Intel Logo and usually show you what to press to enter BIOS. If not, maybe bad keyboard or PS2 port? (Keyboard isn't wireless is it??)
  13. Add this or a shortcut to this file in your Startup Folder: LockWorkstation.bat @Echo off rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation Depending on how your system is setup this will do one of 2 things... Either take the system to the "Computer Locked" screen where either admin or the current user can unlock... or will take your system back to the "Welcome" screen to choose a user to login as (if Fast User Switching is enabled.)
  14. @Yzöwl - This seems to pull the listings of my apps (Including the pesky one 7zip for some reason was not found in the previous scripts). I would need it output to a file and sorted, however, I could manage that if you felt like being generous and sharing the source...
  15. I've always have used "Floppy Image": http://www.towodo.com/products/floppyimage/
  16. I can only assume "found" means that it was thrown out... In this case the writing "servo spindle failure", would indicate a hardware failure with the device. Unless you know electronic repair... you are better off buying one. (18.99 @ the egg...) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827135169
  17. This does not pull all of my installed software... Ex: I have 7-zip installed and it is not in the list when I run this However, I verified that it IS in the registry in the Uninstall key. Any ideas?
  18. Ahh... searched that key and found that the name has a '&' in the name. Now to figure out how to modify the code to accommodate the symbol...
  19. Thanks! I just tested your code and it works great... except I get an error: 'Hauspie' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. ...The code finishes and it gathers all the data and sorts it, so I am at a loss for where this is coming from. On top of that, I don't even have anything installed called 'Hauspie' ...
  20. Hey all, I'm trying to make my batch file gather the installed Applications, and I need some help trying to filter and sort the data. Here is what I have so far: Reg Query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall /S>c:\temp\installedsoftware.txt FOR /f "tokens=3 delims= " %%a in ('find "DisplayName REG_SZ" c:\temp\installedsoftware.txt') do Echo %%a>>C:\temp\newsoft.txtI need to filter out all of the Windows Updates and Security Patches and junk... and then sort the list in Alph. Order. I botched together some code to filter, but it is very inefficient and maybe someone can improve on it for me: @Echo Off Echo.>C:\temp\newsoft.txt Echo.>C:\temp\newsoft2.txt Echo.>C:\temp\newsoft3.txt Echo.>C:\temp\newsoft4.txt Echo.>C:\temp\newsoft5.txt Echo.>C:\temp\newsoft6.txt Reg Query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall /S>c:\temp\installedsoftware.txt FOR /f "tokens=3 delims= " %%a in ('find "DisplayName REG_SZ" c:\temp\installedsoftware.txt') do Echo %%a>>C:\temp\newsoft.txt FOR /f "tokens=* skip=3 delims=" %%b in ('find "Microsoft" /v c:\temp\newsoft.txt') do Echo %%b>>C:\temp\newsoft2.txt FOR /f "tokens=* skip=3 delims=" %%b in ('find "Hotfix" /v c:\temp\newsoft2.txt') do Echo %%b>>C:\temp\newsoft3.txt FOR /f "tokens=* skip=3 delims=" %%b in ('find "Security Update for" /v c:\temp\newsoft3.txt') do Echo %%b>>C:\temp\newsoft4.txt FOR /f "tokens=* skip=3 delims=" %%b in ('find "- Software Updates" /v c:\temp\newsoft4.txt') do Echo %%b>>C:\temp\newsoft5.txt FOR /f "tokens=* skip=3 delims=" %%b in ('find "Update for Windows" /v c:\temp\newsoft5.txt') do Echo %%b>>C:\temp\newsoft6.txt DEL /Q C:\temp\newsoft.txt DEL /Q C:\temp\newsoft2.txt DEL /Q C:\temp\newsoft3.txt DEL /Q C:\temp\newsoft4.txt DEL /Q C:\temp\newsoft5.txt pause Thanks in advance
  21. I would have suggested Malwarebytes Anti-Malware... even the free edition rocks!
  22. Sounds to me like the NIC driver is incorrect for the 98 system.
  23. It sux that all those ppl had to lose their lives... but it's all a conspiracy anyways. Thermite really does wonders as far as taking out support columns...
