What Is Cscript.exe, Virus or Not?

CSCript and WScript are executable files for the scripting host that are used to execute scripts. CSCript and WScript are both interpreters to run VBScript (and other scripting languages such as JScript) on the Windows platform.

What is Cscript.exe?

On Windows, an executable file is either a console application or a Windows application (or a SFU or native application, but that doesn’t matter here).

The kernel checks a flag in the executable to determine which one.

If the kernel creates a console window when the CreateProcess WinAPI function starts, if it is a console application, it creates a console window if the parent process does not have one, and adds the STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR flows to the console. read more

How to Repair: Device Requires Further Installation

Several Windows users reported finding one or more devices (PCI, USB, audio, etc.) in the Device Manager survey that have an event log indicating that they need an “additional installation”. Although the users concerned report that this scenario does not seem to limit the functionality of the device, they still want to know what to do to correct the error message. In most cases, it is reported that the problem occurs under Windows 10.

If you look at the list, you will notice that even if the entry in the event list could be the highest, the time stamp is older than the following entries. This means that this message is normal and has no significant meaning, although it can be confusing and previous versions of Windows have not shown anything similar. If an entry called Device is installed somewhere below in the list, you can assume that the driver for your device is correctly installed. Only if this is missing and you have problems installing the driver, please follow the driver installation instructions for your ESI product as they appear in the knowledge base and/or in your product’s printed manual. read more

Fix: Windows Subsystem For Linux has no Installed Distributions Error

Bash is a Unix shell and a form of command language first introduced in 1989. It has been widely used as a standard connection shell for Linux and MacOS. Although it is mainly seen under Linux and Marcos, there is a version that can be installed under Windows 10.

How To: Execute .SH Files on Windows

These script files were not developed for Windows and only work on Unix systems (Linux and MacOS, plus many others, less popular).

What is a .sh file?

Developer files known as scripts that the Bash application programs and uses. SH files are known to be created and stored in the Bash language because the instructions they contain are written in that language. SH files can be executed when text commands are entered in the shell command line interface. SH files are mainly used by program developers and these files are important for the Bash application because the application mainly uses scripts and commands that must be executed for this application to work. And since SH files are the scripts programmed with this application and contain the commands to run the program, they are indeed important. The commands contained in SH files vary, and the SH file extension is now developed into an interactive shell, although it is originally a scripting language. Programs such as C-Shell, Korn Shell and Bourne Shell also use SH files to store scripts. read more

How To: Convert an Image to PNG Format in Windows 10

PNG files (commonly called “ping”) are a format that contains bitmap or raster images. Originally, the PNG image format was created to adopt the GIF format, since both have the ability to display transparent backgrounds. Another similarity between the two is the use of indexed colors and lossless compression. However, PNG files do not have the same copyright restrictions. Unlike GIF images, files with the PNG extension do not support animation.

PNG and JPG (JPEG) formats are very popular. The best choice depends on your objectives. PNG uses lossless compression to maintain the best image quality. JPG uses lossy compression and high compression rates that significantly reduce the size of image files while maintaining good image quality. This compression is the reason why you might want a PNG to JPG converter, as it allows you to free up hard disk space. read more
