There Was A Problem Sending The Command To The Program
This is a discussion on There Was A Problem Sending The Command To The Program within the Windows 7 Support, Windows Vista Support forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. I'm at my wits end trying to get rid of the title message, so here's hoping somebody has some ideas.
I'm at my wits end trying to get rid of the title message, so here's hoping somebody has some ideas.
When I use certain shortcuts, say from the Desktop, I usually get this message. Shortcuts leading to programs on the computer are OK: it seems to just happen (usually) if the shortcut leads to the internet. I say usually, because I have some shortcuts to newspaper websites which work OK.
My PC is Win 7 64bit SP1 running IE9......virus free and up to date. It has been largely running fault free for the last two years.
I've tried Mr.Fixit for broken shortcuts.....no issues found.
I've tried System File Checker.....no issues found.
I've tried resetting all IE9 settings to default values......no joy.
I've tried running IE with no addons etc......no difference.
I've tried performing clean boots and stopping services and startup programs following Microsoft diagnostic guidelines......the problem remains even with all services and startup programs disabled.
I've tried 'Doug Knox Registry Fixes', which have helped me in the past......no joy.
Of course, I've also Googled my eyes out. The problem is not unknown, but I couldn't find a definite fix.
Never had this problem till a few months ago. As near as I can tell, I think it was at a time when I was having problems with links leading to pdf files, just opening blank pages in IE. I had been experimenting with Foxit and Acrobat, and I think I ended up fouling up my Registry (I'm guessing). After much midnight oil, I eventually solved that problem......but I'm not really sure how, as I was trying so many things! Maybe it was Doug Knox.
Gut feel is telling me that this is a Registry issue, maybe stemming from remnants of (now) uninstalled programs.......but I've no idea how to deal with that, if my guess is true.

HELLO, I'VE HAD A SIMILIAR PROBLEM AND THIS ONLY STARTED TO HAPPEN WHEN I DOWNLOADED AND INSTALLED .."SPEEDBIT VIDEO ACCELERATOR". JUST AS U, I WAS NERVE RECKED TO RESOLVE THIS UNTIL I DECIDED TO REMOVE PROGRAMMES THAT I DOWNLOADED N INSTALLED, STARTING WITH THE LAST ONE FIRST. INTO ADD/REMOVE AND REMOVED SPEEDBIT VIDEO ACCELERATOR. AND THE PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED.
YOU CAN ALSO TRY TO GO INTO RESTORE POINT AND LOOK AT THE LAST FEW DOWNLOADS U INSTALLED AND THEN REMOVE FROM YR ADD/REMOVE THE PROGRAMMES ONE BY ONE UNTIL U FIND THE CULPRIT. UNFORTUNATELY IT IS A BIT TIME CONSUMING, BUT U WILL RESOLVE THIS. DO LET ME KNOW...CHEERS
