Q. "Close all property pages before closing Event Viewer"


J

Jim Jones

Hello,

I get that message:

"Close all property pages before closing Event Viewer".

Also, when I double-click anything in Application, System or Event,
It does nothing. It doesnt open up any errors for me to view.

Can you help?

Thanks,
Jim

The file(s) may be corrupt. Control Panel|Administrative
Tools|Services|Event Log Service|General, set the "Startup Type:" to
"Disabled" restart the pc, then delete (or move) the corrupt *.evt file(s)
from %windir%\system32\config then set the Event Log Service "Startup Type:"
back to "Automatic", restart for effect.

This also may be of interest.

Dave,

Now, I get a couple other problems which I saw once before, and didn't
bother to save them, and clicked OK, and they were gone.

But, I have them now.

One says:

* * * * * * * * * *
svchost has generated errors and will be closed by Windows.
You will need to restart the program.

An error log is being created.

* * * * * * * * * * *

Then, when I tried to edit the snapshot I took of that screen,
another error came up that says:


* * * * * * * * * * * *
The RPC server is unavailable.
* * * * * * * * * * * *

I've not yet gotten the other errors I mentioned in my original
thread, and likewise did not act on your suggestions.

But, do you have any additional suggestions in light of my new errors
?

Thanks,
Jim

Dave,

I see what you mean. I've read it and it makes sense.
What's a good 3rd party firewall to purchase?

By the way, I'm about finished with installing 2000 and restoring all
my previous apps. I'm happy to say that I've not gotten the RPC error
since then, and that I get no Event errors on anything whatsoever.

I have made an icon for my event viewer and stuck it on my desktop
so I can monitor it as soon as my Windows comes up.

Another question: My dial-up icon in my system tray always says
that I'm connected at 57.6. I tend to doubt that, as that was never
the case before. Can I rely on that, or is it something that needs a
fix?

Thanks,
Jim

* There are many to choose from. zone labs, symantec, sygate, mcafee, and
others you can search for.

* You'll need this patch before connecting to any network with your new
install.

* That usually indicates the initial connect speed which will continually
change.

Dave,

I've noted the modification you mentioned about applying to my new
install, before connecting to any network. Does that still apply, even
tho I'm using this computer strictly as a stand-alone, to dial to the
internet ?

Also, get this: When I connect, and it says I've connected at 57,600,
or even 40,400, etc. - my system is slowww. My system IS faster,
when I connect at 19,200 ! ! ! Please advise on that.
Do you think my older USR Sportster is soon going on the blink?

Should I get a better modem? which one? I cannot do cable or dsl at
this time.

Device Manager is happy with the modem driver I pointed it to ( not
exactly plug and play ).

Yes internet = network. Yes you'll need it. If you've already connected to
the internet chances are you've got the blaster virus.

* The initial connect speed really doesn't mean much as the actual connect
speed will vary throughout your session. Try one of the connection speed
test sites www.pcpitstop.com or www.dslreports.com and others you can search
for. These problems are usually related to a poor phone line condition.

* Check the hardware manufacturer's web site for the latest Windows 2000
driver for your modem.

Dave,

Sure enough, there was a worm virus. But not the Blaster.
It was the Welchia something or other. It's all cleared now.

Everything else works fine, except for one little detail.
I got a creative pci modem, and it works just fine, except that when I
click on "details" on the connection icon (by the clock), it lists

Server type, Authentication, etc, but next to Compression it lists
"none".

I called creative, and they point the finger to Windows, for not
showing it. I should see something like: MNP. . . or V.44 , but all
I see is "none".

Any ideas ?

Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections,
and then click Network Connections. Click your dial-up connection, and then
click Change settings of this connection under Network Tasks. Click the
General tab, click your modem in the Connect Using box, and then click
Configure. Check the box for Enable Modem Compression, and then click OK
twice.

Dave,

I've done all that, but still no value next to "compression".
The speed, for what it is, is decent tho. This problem is not a big
deal, but if you come across anything regarding my exact problem with
this, please let me know.

Thanks,
Jim

From here it's difficult to say, but it sounds like it may be an incorrect
driver for the hardware.
