Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.

First off, please download the following BAT file:

This link that you sent sends me to a home page for box.net, it doesn't take me to a file download, or a file to be able to run. Please advise.
My bad, the link must have expired.

Now, please carry out the following steps instead:

1. Close all open programs.

2. Right-click My Computer and click Services.

3. Double-click Automatic Updates.

4. If it is running, click Stop.

5. On the Startup Type drop-down menu, select Disabled.

6. Click Apply, then click OK.

Reboot your computer and check if the error comes up now.

Keep me posted.

I have tried this once already but will try it again. I won't know if it makes a difference until tomorrow morning as this always happens overnight. The answers you are giving me are the same ones that are free on the internet, and I have already tried - just fyi.

No problem, take your time and keep me posted.

That didn't work. We had the same WIN32 error this morning after following your instructions. As I mentioned, we had already tried this fix a couple days ago. Any other help you can give?
Now, could you make a note of, and let me know the exact locations it specifies the error as having to do with?

Unfortunately this didn't work - we are still getting the error. We are not on the internet when this is happening, just working in other programs and the error pops up and throws us out of the program we are working on.
I see. Now, do you have a Windows XP installation disc with you?

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
I have a re-installation CD entitled Operative System Reinstallation CD Microsoft Windows XP Professionsl Service Pack 2. However, wouldn't using that CD wipe out everything else that is on our computer?
Yeah, that's different from an installation disk, which would have allowed us to repair your system itself, without losing any of your files. Now, please download the following tool, HijackThis, onto your system:
http://download.cnet.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html (click the green 'Download Now' button)

Run the same and click on the 'Do a system scan and save a logfile option' present in the tool, then copy and paste the contents of the logfile saved, in this thread so that I can take a look at it and follow up further.

I did what you asked, and now that PC won't go on the internet at all. It says that it is connected to the internet, but won't go to any sites. It says a bunch of possible options like IP address lost, domain lost, etc etc. I cannot get it to log on at all.

the computer internet explorer cannot find the website. it says that the computer is connected to the internet but either the address is wrong, or the domain is lost or the IP address is lost, it says to reconnect, but the same thing comes up.

nothing is checked under LAN settings.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
on and off for a week or two.
All right. Before troubleshooting any further, please go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore, then restore your system back to a date and time prior to when you started having this issue with the Win32 error.

Restart thereafter, and check if this makes any difference to your issue, as well as resolves the Internet problem.

If the system restore doesn't complete for some reason, just let me know.

Regards
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago

I actually did that this morning, but it wouldn't let me go back any further than September 15 on that computer. All the other computers will go back to July. The problem was still happening after the system restore. Why would it not allow me to go back before 9/15? I was going to go back to 9/1 to make sure it was before the problem began. Shouldn't the "automatically detect" button be checked under the LAN settings or no?

I see. You don't need to check that option normally, but please go ahead and try it anyway. If it doesn't work, carry out a system restore back to before you ran the HijackThis program, and then let me know.

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
OK. we restored back to 9/15 again. IE is fine now, so we are back to dealing with the Win32 error.
All right. Now, I think the best bet for you to do will beto backup your personal data first, then carry out a reinstallation of Windows using the disk you have. Will that be viable for you?

Good morning. We did not have the Win32 error message this morning on the computer!!! . The message we did have is this...."Windows-Delayed Write Failed".

Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \device\harddiskvolume2\$mft. The data has been lost. THis error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.

 

However, - we have no idea what this file is or what would have a "delayed write".

 

Any suggestions??

I see. Now, do you have an external hard drive connected to your computer, by any chance?

Regards

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

No, we don't have an external drive connected at all.

 

We have a dictation machine that transfers digital files TO the computer once the physicXXXXX XXXXXgs up, but nothing transfers back to that machine.

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

We again had the Win32 message this morning and the PC was locked up as well as the dictation system. I guess we will probably have to take the system back to factory condition after backing up personal files and making sure we have all software documents/disks to reinstall. Although you were not able to solve our problem I will accept your answer so that you can get paid for the time and effort that you put in.


Thank you.

 

Lisa Scumaci

I'm sorry we were unable to make any further progress on this issue, since we seem to have exhausted every possible solution available. Restoring the system back to factory defaults may be the safest alternative at this point, taking into account the fact that you don't have an installation disk for Windows with you, which we could have used to repair your system files, while leaving the personal data intact.

Regards
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
is there a way to obtain an Installation Disk for Windows XP as we only have the re-installation disk?
Sure; now, do you use Windows XP Home or Professional?

Regards
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
It is Windows XP Professional.
Okay, sure; you may get it off eBay, from the hundreds of online retailers available; just enter your search term as "Windows XP Professional SP3". That's the latest upgrade to Windows XP; choose a retailer with the most cost-effective price, and nearest to your area.

Once you have gotten an installation disk, try running the System File Checker tool, which will scan all the system files for Windows XP and replace any corrupted, missing, or incorrect files with the original, correct versions (you need to have the installation disk inserted.)

To run System File Checker in Windows, click on Start and type in CMD in the Run box.

 

Now type in the following command at the prompt:

sfc /scannow

 

Once the scanning process has been completed, restart and check if this makes any difference to your issue.

does it matter that our re-install disks state windows xp SP2 rather than 3 as you suggested?

The SP3 disk will work fine, if your system already has SP2; it will only be a problem if you use a service pack lower than what you currently have, i.e. SP1.

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
