System32 Error

Recommended Posts

Been having problems with my pc and was in need of a good clean up so decided to reformat my hard drive.

Everything went ok and it all seems to be running ok but on start up i keep getting this message on my home screen.

 

Windows cannot find 'C;\WINDOWS\system 32\Pwds.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file,

Click the start button, and then click search

 

Have tried goggling it but not found anything other than a couple of chinese sites that i cant understand.

Any of you guys have an idea what i need to do to fix this?

Some software loads on STARTUP, Looks like PWDS.EXE (YAHOO WIDGET) is one of them.

You may have deleted the FILE but NOT removed it from the startup settings, thus it believes you WANT to run this program , but you have misplaced it. (maybe you used a spyware remover, that removed the software but not the links)

 

Look at this link http://www.wikihow.com/Alter-Startup-Programs-in-Windows-XP

 

it should help REMOVE the program from startup.

 

Basically it will give you access to ALL the software that loads on startup, you need to look for the YAHOO WIDGET (If thats its name and the commandline C;\WINDOWS\system 32\Pwds.exe, once you find them, deselect them from the list. Then restart your PC all should be ok.)

skip the first step and it will work, just start-run- and type in msconfig then uncheck Pwds.exe in the startup tab

By all accounts the program is not NASTY, that is it is not stealing information etc

And as its not loading it can do NO harm

You just want to stop the annoying windows error

 

See http://www.fbmsoftware.com/spyware-net/process/pwd_exe/3125/

 

Another thing you could try is RELOAD it http://download.cnet.com/Yahoo-Widgets/3000-12565_4-10335368.html (assuming thats the version u had)

 

and then uninstall it , from the ADD/REMOVE option in the control panel

 

but removing it from the start up should have worked.

Dont know if makes any difference but what i'm getting is Pwds.exe not pwd.exe

Can't RELOAD the yahoo widgets as i've never loaded them in the first place??

Start - Run - Msconfig.exe

 

Try unchecking items in the Startup tab, restart, and see what works and what doesn't. Normally that will remove the program call error.

 

If you can't find the startup tab item to save you, go to the services tab, hide all microsoft services, and try to check and uncheck items, see if that works.

 

You'll need to restart each time and be intelligent about what you disable, but that should do it.

 

BTW if you want a command line Start - Run - CMD.exe

 

That will give you a command line window.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
