Hello, i need some suggestion in this post.
I want to download updates for Win7(32bit) for offline installation.
It really doesn't bother me if i do not update; i am not big on it.
But i kind a searched and found a tool that does that.
The tool is called WSUS Offline Update 11.1.1
The site:
Last time i did was the first time i updated and it also downloaded an update that significantly improved the display in the screen.
In small ways.Instead of backing up and doing all those thing, i thought why not download Updates that is installable in offline mode.
But i am having problem with this, it doesn't go beyond this error.
Error with WSUS Offline Update 11.1.1.jpg
So can anyone who has done some kind of Update know about this problem.
You could download this tool and try it for yourself.
Other tools that could do offline Update: https://www.raymond....line-windows-update/
Hope you understood it.

Thank you @Shade and @wraith808: its kind of complicated for a measly job it could do despite all the other complicated things a pc can do.
But i was looking for a more easy process like mentioned in this thread:
Windows 7: Message - Send to Local PC on LAN in Windows 7 and Vista
But i found another site that does the job of sending a sms txt in easy steps. Send SMS. It works for me and the network provider is from my country itself.
But i will look more deeply what Shade's mentioned. But thank you guys for your generous time. Take care.

Hello folks, i was wondering if i could send messages to a person who lives 5 km away from me having different IP address.
I know i can send mails, but i want to send messages to someone, and a notification popping up reminding them of an incoming messages.
Is there any software that can do that, i know Skype but the credits needs to be paid. So is there any software that can do that, or a simple
commandline trick that does it.  :huh:

Awaiting reply.

Hello Mileahead;
   thank you for your tool, i clicked on the error windows and win/system32 folder opened up. I remember one time, i had installed some
software, which installed lot of crap also some browsers. So i did a scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and so far their is no error message.
There were a huge amount of trash to be deleted. So far so good, i didn't get the WSHost msg pop up.
Thank you for your suggestion, i am keeping that app for time being.

Hello Friends,
     recently i had installed some programs, which i don't recall now.
But after removing i have getting this errors.
I tried searching this for a fix, and nowhere i can get a valid answer. I went through a number of sites. Here. But it didn't fix my problem. It's really buggin sometimes.
Does anyone know of a better solution for this. I don't want to restore my pc just for a single cause.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings
Double Click on it and give it Value Data 1 to enable it.

    A value of 1 will enable Windows Script Host
    A value of 0 will disable Windows Script Host.

I tried this method but it doesn't work. I am on Win7.x32bit version.

General Software Discussion / Re: Configure Host file!
« on: March 01, 2016, 01:43 PM »
ipconfig /flushdns
Unforunately i tried that, the program shows as unregisters. I am planning to switch it to Revo Uninstaller.Which pretty much does the same thing.
KS.Host Monitor is a program i found, Homepage.
Can this tool do the job.

General Software Discussion / Configure Host file!
« on: March 01, 2016, 09:01 AM »
Hello folks,
        i just came to know host file maps the hostnames to IP addresses.
Which also means a users can stop ones pc from connecting to any website. This can come in handy to those who uses application from connecting to its mother site. Hope my english is good.
This way, i could block some programs from connecting to there website.

input these prefix in host file.

I have some application which always tries to connect to the website. I have one in particular called Total Uninstall 6.
I tried the entry:
But it still connects to the website and pops up as unregistered.
What i want to know is ! How do i know this program is trying to connect to a particular website. Is there a tool that can do that, i already have 2 firewall for this kind of job, but they fail sometime due to hard PC restart and all i have is host file.
Which can do the job 100%.

Awaiting some reply. Any suggestion.

The HDD is     Seagate ST9408114A and although it van be seen in the Bios but winxp CD doesn't see it, and on one occassion Win7 Disc couldn't too and it showed BSOD, i can't download the SATA Controller , just because their is none in the net: and it is a Acer Laptop not a Dell laptop:::
Any suggestion, if it can't be solved here, then it can't be anywhere...........


Hello folks,
              i am trying to install Winxp on a laptop which has Pentium4 processor and it is a Dell Laptop, it has Seagate ST9408114A  HDD, so far i have tried winxp , WIn7 and Clonezilla and BartePE , but it all failed to recognise the HDD, so i am beginning to realize if the HDD is corrupted i can't use HirenBoot CD or can i check the for bad sector : so what possibly could be the problem .
            One thing could be that it is a SATA Disc but then again it has a Pentium 4 Processor and i think it is a ATA HDD, so what could be the problem, i could download the SATA Controller and integrate to make the Winxp Setup disc to recognise it.
   So what possibly could be the problem,,,,any direction would be great,      :o :o :o :o

General Software Discussion / Lite version of C++
« on: March 09, 2012, 10:57 AM »
Hello folks,
         i am looking for a super lite or light version of C++ program , ie., where it does the actual coding, not the huge MS Visual Basic 2008 or 2010, i remember using it from a floppy: where we used to write the acyual code's. Now i have forgotten about that program name, hope someone can direct me somewhere .

Any free version would work:
Thank you:

Well i am using Winxp and i noticed this similar behaviour when i ran in one of my friends PC.  I tried what you suggested the Autoplay repair and the KB971029 update.
I have been having this problem when i ran that command.

Tried the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.2.3 but still getting the same results, it will make my system vulnerable to autorun.inf viruses, hope you are understanding.
        Does it mean now my pendrive is useless, i mean what good is it when it keeps opening itself, may someone has this problem.


Hello, i have a 8 GB pendrive, when i insert it on the USB port it doesn't pwompt me "Open the folder " | " View Imagest" etc etc: as it does normally.
At one time i had formatted my pendrive from the command prompt with this switches
h:\ format /q/x/ h:
something like this. After the format was complete it stopped prompting me to " Open the folder " , i went in the properties and set the check box to " Prompt me to choose an action",  but still it doesn't prompt me anything.

Please see the snapshot, i dont have any viruses in my pendrive.

I know how to attach text files from Winrar, but rtf or doc files are not supported.
        I wonder how does those people attach files or image as seen on the snapshot, i know it is an image : because if it were text i could select all the text which it didn't happen here.

The image you see is in the comment section: sorry for wrong query: actually i know how to attach file or archive file (if you are thinking or archiving... i know that) but what i really meant was : How do i actually put up an image like in the snap in the comment box......

Any advice from regular people of Donationcoder.....

General Software Discussion / How to attach in Winrar
« on: September 02, 2011, 04:27 AM »
                i have a huge collection of data which are important to me, so to make things easier i Zip them with Winrar: their were a couple of .RAR files:
           so i   want to attach image like pic : please check the image. I can't figure it how can i achieve that so that i can easily archive my data: without having to     browse through them and manually test.  Any suggestion is helpful.

How can i achieve this. :)

Thank you all for ur input, although i am quite happy with Hibernate, it would work when i am playing a game or in a middle of something and even if the power is switced off: it would take the same time to restore to Desktop.
But if Standby was more like Hibernate, i would have used it period.
Although Hibernate is more stable in Win7 and thats that,,,but Hibernate is more stable and reliable.

         i searched through many sites regarding Standby and Hibernate functions in XP: Both the functions are for saving power, but the difference being the STANDBY can remain in that state for a shorter time, i mean real short time, if i leave my PC for 5 Mins and turn the power on, it simply wont boot to desktop, unlike HIBERNATE it writes all the data that is open , even if i leave the PC for 1 hr the HIBERNATE functions seems to work well. It would restore to desktop, but Standby boots to desktop really quickly.
   Both the functions having its plus and minuses : but is their any way i would make Standby mode to work after i leave my PC for 3 or 4 hours. I have enabled the Power Management from the BIOS, and checked all the settings from the POWER option in ie., Right Click properties/ScreenSaver/Power/ etc etc.....

Any suggestions would be great.

Hello, first post here at Donation Coder, heard quite a lot about this forum, if someone could help me this, you see , I have PC with Geforce GT 210 Graphic card, Dual Core, 400 GB HDD and 3.0 GHz . Is it remotely possible to play PS2 games with this configuration, there are few titles I want to play in my PC i.e., those PS2 games.
Which Emulator (program) do I use and can it load the ISO made of the entire PS2 Disc, has anyone tried it.
Any suggestion from some experienced users.
