Windows Vista >> Unknown nt operating system code 6 detected.

by ZGF2aWRjcl9tc2Z0 » Wed, 19 Jul 2006 22:58:02 GMT

Every time I open Control Panel or type anything into the search box on the
Start menu (and a few other random places), I get the following two errors:

- Unknown NT operating system code 6 detected.
- Read config file failed

Sometimes these two errors pop up 4 times in a row. I cannot find anything
about this anywhere on the web. Does anyone know what this is and/or how to
correct it?

I am running Vista Beta 2 Ultimate (Build 5384.winmain_beta2.060518-1455). I
have installed several applications:

- Office 2007 Beta 2
- Money 2006
- NetBeans 5.5
- GotoMyPC
- Skype
- Acrobat Reader 7

I am on a Toshiba Satellite A75-S226. I had to install the Windows XP Video
drivers to get video in Vista - glass does not work (ATI Radeon Mobile 9800).
I had to do the same for the adio drivers as well. All other drivers detected
fine. Does not seem to be any issues with video or audio otherwise. No system
errors, not even a crash or a BSOD for anything...just these annoying/criptic
errors.

2. How can IConvert macintosh operating system 10 files To Windows operating system

Help requested,

I have a class at CUNY Lehman college in the Bronx and am 
currently using Adobe products on a macintosh OS X 
operating system. I would like to work on assigned 
projects at home. I have no trouble creating files in 
Adobe Illustrator on Windows 2000 saving them on a USB 
drive and reading and using them on the Mac OS X operating 
system at class, but can not read files created on Mac OS 
X saved to USB from Windows 2000. Can you recomend a 
procedure or software product that can allow me to read 
files created on Mac OS 10 on my Windows 2000 OS system?

Thanks
JJM

4. .bat to detect operating system

We are currently using .bat files for our login scripts
Yaya I know so 1998
Anyways until we can switch to .vbs or anything else
I need to put some code in the .bat login script to not run if it's a 
windows 2003 server
The IT guys still need login scripts but I don't want them running on the 
servers.

6. hard drive not detected/no operating system found

friend has emachines pc that says no operating system found when it's booted. 
 he has not one cd that came with it. tried installing my xp home edition 
disc but no hard drives were found on this computer.  tried repair instead of 
install several times and finally got partition 0,  press d to delete this 
partition and one other option that i can't recall. was completely lost  and 
p.o. at this point and shut it down. have never been able to get that screen 
back. tried my backup disc i made with 'image for windows' no hd found. tried 
several diagnostic tools and got read error loading os, system halted. don't 
know what diag. utility i was using at the time. on start up system  bios 
shadowed, video bios shadowed, it detects atapi cd/rom =samsung 
csd-r/rw-sw-248f. will not, under any circumstances boot in safe mode.  every 
time i boot it it detects cpu intel (r) celeron (r)cpu 2.6 GHz. it also says 
254 mg. sys. ram passed-128k cache sram passed. this is all i ever get.  one 
question i have is this. boot screen says 256mb sys. ram passed, and 128k 
cache ram passed, does this mean that it detects my memory that's installed 
but doesn't detect my hard drive? and what is the difference in the two? not 
a puter person but i'm really curious about this one.
sys. info.xp-home-256mg ddr-40 gig  ultra dma hard drive. hope that's enough 
info. i apologize for the length as well as the ignorance of this post but 
please give me some info if you can.

8. Threat - Operating System Detected

What could be the solution to clear this violation shown below?

THREAT:
Several different techniques can be used to identify the operating system 
(OS) running on a host. A short description of these techniques is provided
below. The specific technique used to identify the OS on this host is 
included in the RESULTS section of your report.
1) TCP/IP Fingerprint: The operating system of a host can be identified from 
a remote system using TCP/IP fingerprinting. All underlying operating
system TCP/IP stacks have subtle differences that can be seen in their 
responses to specially-crafted TCP packets. According to the results of this
"fingerprinting" technique, the OS version is among those listed below.
Note that if one or more of these subtle differences are modified by a 
firewall or a packet filtering device between the scanner and the host, the
fingerprinting technique may fail. Consequently, the version of the OS may 
not be detected correctly. If the host is behind a proxy-type firewall, the
version of the operating system detected may be that for the firewall 
instead of for the host being scanned.
2) NetBIOS: Short for Network Basic Input Output System, an application 
programming interface (API) that augments the DOS BIOS by adding
special functions for local-area networks (LANs). Almost all LANs for PCs 
are based on the NetBIOS. Some LAN manufacturers have even extended
it, adding additional network capabilities. NetBIOS relies on a message 
format called Server Message Block (SMB).
3) PHP Info: PHP is a hypertext pre-processor, an open-source, server-side, 
HTML-embedded scripting language used to create dynamic Web
pages. Under some configurations it is possible to call PHP functions like 
phpinfo() and obtain operating system information.
4) SNMP: The Simple Network Monitoring Protocol is used to monitor hosts, 
routers, and the networks to which they attach. The SNMP service
maintains Management Information Base (MIB), a set of variables (database) 
that can be fetched by Managers. These include
"MIB_II.system.sysDescr" for the operating system.
