Microsoft Windows XP is the sixth release of the NT series of operating systems, and was the first to be marketed in a variety of editions: XP Home and XP Professional, designed for business and power users. The advanced features in XP Professional are generally disabled in Home Edition, but are there and can be activated. There were two 64-bit editions, an embedded edition and a tablet edition.

am running a windows xp OS on my Pentium III dell computer. one day I was restoring my other programs to my system that were once deleted. one of the program restored was the avast antivirus which was expired sometime back and it needed to update. however, before updating it, I tried to run it. it started showing that it detects some file as infected and asked to delete, delete all, move to chess, move to chess all, repair, repair all....... Thinking deleting the infected files would be best, I commanded it to delete all. so it deleted a lot of files. at last, I had to reboot the system, and from then when I boot the computer, it only shows me this error message:

 STOP: c0000139 {Entry Point Not Found} The procedure entry point wcsncpy_s could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll.

Nothing happens apart from restarting itself when I boot it in the safe mode. when boot it in the windows restore directory, it checks the system and gives the results as follows:

System Checking D:
the volume is clean
System Checking C:
the volume is clean

My CD-ROM doesn't work. when I insert a cd, it just runs and finally stops, no reading.

So is there any solution to rectify the problem so that I the system should be finishing booting? Thanks in advance for your help.

hi
I have a windows 2003 server as my domain controller with roaming profiles and folder redirection configured. I have had this server for a while now and I have migrated users from windows XP all the way to windows 10. M problem is now am almost out of space on this server but when I check how much data is on the users profile it doesn't correspond to what is on my quota statement, seems to be less than what is on the server. am also constantly seeing cases of "Your roaming profile was not completely synchronized" from a couple of them. how do I solve this?

thanks
Gerald

We are baffled by a situation where two computers are unable to access a website that more than 150 other computers are accessing with a problem. These two computers are behind a common modem and router, but tracert shows the packets make it to the server. Running Wire Shark shows:
wireshark.pngOther websites on a different server (and ip) behind the same firewall are accessible from the same two computers behind the same router and modem.

To try to clear up the situation....
Two computers (running POS Ready 2009) at location A are unable to display a website on server A (running Server 2003). This is true whether using the domain or the IP Address for the server.  These same two computers are able to access a website on the Server B (running Server 2003) which is behind the same firewall as Server A.
Other computers are able to display the same website on Server A from multiple other locations with no problems.

Hello, I'm currently having issues with trying to update my computer to a newer Windows instalment. I was recently given an old-ish Windows XP computer by a family member and they completely wiped the computer and refreshed it back to its factory settings. Ever since I've received it, I've been trying to gain access to the internet so I can update its anti-virus as well as update it to more modern instalments of Microsoft Windows.

However every time I've tried connecting it, it says that the wireless wifi networks (that ARE in range) are apparently not or it has lost connection to them? Please help me, as I feel like I'm running in circles trying to find out how to fix it :(

Hi All,
We have a few XP VMs left around because of old applications that are still needed. When I run gpupdate on any of them, it takes a long time and a check of rsop says that the failure was due to "the clocks on the client and server machines are skewed". The problem is only occurring on XP machines. All of our Win7 and 10 machines are fine. I have verified that the system clocks are matched on the VMs and on the 2012 R2 DCs (also VMs), including identical time zones.

I discovered this issue after moving our WSUS server from a 2008 R2 VM to a 2012 R2 VM. None of the XP machines are checking in with the new server because they are not picking up the change in the Group Policy.

I have tried running "w32tm /resync /rediscover", with no change in the situation. I am not seeing any errors in the Event Log on the DC, but on the clients, I am getting events Userenv 1097 and 1030 along with the GP failures. I have also verified that the certs on the clients are valid. I had also updated the XP machines from the old WSUS server a few weeks ago, so they should be as current as XP can be, including the recent WannaCry update.

Hi,

I restored a ghost image as a vitual machine. Then I had to repair it with XP sp3 CD.

The problem is when I log in windows tell that it must be activated. I can choose yes or no. If no the xp disconnect. If yes I have an empty desktop and nothing happens and I can't do nothing.

Other information, I can start in safe mode and have full access but activation doesn't work in this mode.

I had this question after viewing Win7 x64 Host + Winxp guest + DOS Application Full Screen mode?.

I admit to being a dinosaur that actually misses MS DOS 6.2 and loved Windows XP. The reason being that all my financial records are on Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets (dating to 1984) and I am not going to try a transition all of that to Excel.  Lotus 1-2-3 ran beautifully full screen on my old XP machine but with MS refusing to keep XP alive I have transitioned to Win 7. The Lotus program will run in the XP mode of Win 7 but the screen is about postage stamp size regardless of how the  Window options are configured in the shortcut.  VMware is a bit better by allowing me to get to a 10" X 6" 20 line screen that is readable but I am still looking for a real "full screen" option.

"Aciddo" indicated that DOS programs ran full screen in Ver 7 of workstation after tweaking the options feature but I am using a 30 day evaluation version of Ver 12.5 and have had no success with the Ver 7 fix.  I have tried adjusting the screen resolutions in both host and guest to lesser values but that totally scrambles the desktop icons causing consternation upon exit from the DOS programs.   I have even tried DOSBOX but even though the screen goes to full the Lotus 1-2-3 program still is about 3" X 5" within the full screen.

There may be no viable fix for this problem but if anyone has ideas they will be welcome.
