Here’s the newest one floating around. It’s a pretty easy one to spot, however it’s always possible to catch us off-guard ESPECIALLY since you’re getting a text instead of an email. Keep a watch out for this 5/3rd bank customers! And for the rest of you, It wouldn’t surprise me if we start seeing ones for other banks soon as well.
File shows up in a folder, but any attempt to delete, rename or move it results in : “Error Deleting File or Folder – Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk“.
If it’s a folder, no hidden files are inside it. You can read and write to it. No permissions error, and the file/folder is not set as hidden or read only in properties.
Dropping down to a DOS prompt and trying a DEL, DELTREE, or RN return the same error.
This is caused by an invalid character in the file name. Possibly a dot or a space (Spaces are really hard to spot – they’re invisible. But try a rename and just use the arrow keys in the rename box. If there’s a space at the end, the arrow key will find it and move one character past the last letter). Normally Windows will not let you create something with an invalid character in the name, but it can happen if you’re in a system remotely and the connection gets cut off, or if there’s corruption on the Hard disk, or if the file was created by a Mac and then some how transferred over to the system.
I ran across a couple of possible solutions from the command prompt, but if your file has a space in the name, especially in the middle of the name, you won’t be able to run them. Tried a couple of tools, “Killbox” returned a similar error – that the file dosen’t appear to exist. Finally came across “Unlocker”. This app will force a delete of the file. Start up the program and use it’s interface to browse to the file / folder in question (local or network drive, it doesn’t matter. as long as you can browse to it, the application can work with it), and from the actions list select “Delete”. File is immediately deleted. There’s also a “Rename” and a “Move” option. if your trying to preserve the file.
If security center service is missing or damaged, or antivirus software is not installed and current, Outlook 2010 will not allow sync with other apps without prompt. Eg. Commit.
You could try adding the following key to the registry:
In this key add the following value:
ObjectModelGuard, DWORD =2
The values 0, 1 and 2 correspond to the options in the Programmatic Access Security settings in the Trust Center.
0 = Warn if Anti-Virus is out of date (recommended)
1 = Always warn
2 = Never warn
No printers show up in the printer section of control panel. This is a result of the print spooler crashing. if you go in and manually restart the print spooler it runs until you try to do anything related to the printer then crashes again.
Usually this is the result of corrupt print drivers (possible virus infection causing the corruption. Make sure to run a quick malware scan). You may need to uninstall print drivers completely – including the registry entries.
If it is a local printer (My Computer), go to the following registry keys and delete the respective entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlPrintEnvironments Windows NT x86 DriversVersion-2
If it is a network printer (network printer server or \), go to the following registry keys and delete the respective and entries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlPrintProviders LanMan Print ServicesServers\Printers
After the registry edit, you need to stop and restart the spooler service. At this point, you’ll be able to reinstall the printer driver correctly.
When Outlook won’t open, nine times out of ten, it’s a profile issue. You’re PST gets corrupt and Outlook just can’t open. Forunately, Outlook has a built in utility to fix just this…if you can find it.
The Utility is “Scanpst.exe” and it’s located in the C:programfilesOffice(version number) folder. Bring up the RUN command and access it there, then point it to your outlook PST file. These are usually located either in the hidden folder “C:Users (username)AppDataLocalMicrosoftOutlook” or in an Outlook folder in your Documents folder. The initial error check is quick. Ten minuets or so, but further repairs may take hours. Be prepared.
Once done, Outlook should open normally.
