My backup files are corrupted. So was looking for a recovery tool. But the issue is there are so many tools to choose from.
Do anyone of you have any idea regarding any good recovery solution. I even tried to search manual procedures but it was of no use.
So kindly suggest me any manual process, if you know any (as i don't like to pay for a recovery solution)
If not, then suggest me any good recovery tool to repair and recover my BKF files.

I have even searched the web and found following tools which would help in recovery of data from the corrupt bkf files.  Kindly review these tool. Looking for a user review

1 . Aryson bkf repair tool  (http://www.arysontechnologies.com/bkf-recovery.html)
2. Backup Recovery Tools (http://www.msbkffilerecovery.com/bkf-recovery.html)

Thanks in advance

I have a client that is running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and XP Mode for an old application they still use. The virtual machine no longer works. It won't boot and I get an error that the SYSTEM32\CONFIG file is corrupted. I want to fix it by booting off an XP Pro ISO as the CD drive but it won't boot off the drive. In order to boot off the drive, I have to use integration features but integration features show as "not available" in the Virtual-PC Manager so I cannot enable them.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

Believe this is a long shot but doesn't hurt to ask, is there a way to activate WINXP? I called the MS number and the automated line said the product was not valid. I know the product is valid I expect this is because it's no longer supported.

Have an old app that only runs on WINXP.

Thank you

I know that XP is obsolete. But I need it to run for my old app. Anyway,  I just reinstalled Win XP on my T61 Thinkpad and when I move my browser around, it is moving very slowly. I have my music on and then I move the browser around, the music stops playing.

Appreciate any thoughts.

I'm trying to create a backup of my windows xp embedded drive by cloning it to another flash drive. The working drive is a 1gb Transcend CompactFlash drive and the cloned drive is a 2gb Adata CompactFlash drive. I used partitionguru to clone the drive over from the Transcend drive to the Adata drive. When trying to boot it shows "Verifying DMI Pool data" and then shows a Disk read error. I tried to rewrite the MBR but it didn't work.

We're about to embark on a project to upgrade our IT services.  For a variety of reasons we are still clinging on to Windows XP.  The first thing we are doing is migrating to Office 365, including hosted email from Microsoft as part of O365.

Since we are on XP we can only run Office 2007, which can connect to O365.  We have several people already using XP, Outlook 2007 & O365.  However as we roll out we have hit a problem in that some of the PCs just will not connect to Office 365 Exchange server.

During setup of their Outlook profile on the PC it asks for the username (email address) and password, but never validates this.  Clicking ok just keeps asking for the same login information.

The PC is fully patched in XP SP3 and Office 2007 (SP3).  It seems to have to be something to do with the PC.  If I login to the PC using another user (who can connect to O365 on a different PC) it does not work.  

I've searched the internet and tried lots of options -- most of which are for Windows 7  onwards, but we've tried them anyway.  We've also deleted the users Outlook profile on the PC, and their full windows profile but with no luck. We've uninstalled Offfice 2007 and reinstalled too.

Any other suggestions on what can be checked on the PC.

Many thanks

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.

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.

"asms" Windows XP Pro SP3 CD is needed but i don't have the CD. what can i do?

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.
