by John Savill, FAQ Editor, jsavill@winnetmag.com

This week, I explain how to accept the Windows Update licensing agreement when the Agree button isn't in view, how to remove the dluca.exe process so that it doesn't use system resources, and how to correct a Wjview error related to a missing Java applet. I also tell you how to clear temporary Internet files from Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) and how to adjust the amount of space that IE reserves for temporary Internet files.

Around the industry this week, Microsoft released Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to beta testers. You can find more details at Microsoft's BetaPlace Web site.

2. FAQs

Q. I have so many updates to install from Windows Update that I can't accept the licensing agreement because it doesn't appear on screen. How can I click Accept?

A. After you select the updates that you want to install, click Install Now to display a dialog box in which you can click Accept to proceed. If too many updates are available for installation, the Accept button might not appear onscreen. If that's the case, you can press Tab once, then press Enter. Alternatively, you can close the dialog box and select fewer updates to install at a time.

Q. Why does the dluca.exe process appear to be using a large amount of resources on my computer?

A. Dluca.exe is an adult material dialer process that can use a large amount of resources. You can safely remove this process, and after you do, your system resource use should drop. To remove dluca.exe under Windows XP, delete the \%systemroot%\system32\msinstall\dlu32\dluca\ folder, then open Msconfig and navigate to the Startup tab to remove any dluca.exe startups. For other OSs, use the registry editor and delete any entries under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry subkeys.

Q. Why do I receive an error that reads "WJVIEW error, Could not execute Main"?

A. Wjview lets you view window-based Java applications. You might receive an error message if Wjview attempts to start an application on your system that no longer exists. To check this under Windows XP, perform the following steps:

  1. Start Msconfig.
  2. Select the Startup tab.
  3. Scan the list for any entries that contain "wjview."
  4. If you find any "wjview" entries, try disabling the Wjview startup component and locate any associated folders identified in Msconfig that you might need to delete to determine whether that solves the problem.

To delete the "wjview" entries rather than disabling them (and to check under non-XP OSs), perform the following steps:

  • Open a registy editor (e.g., regedit.exe).
  • Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry subkeys.
  • Remove the invalid "wjview" entries.
  • Q. How can I clear the temporary Internet files in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE)?

    A. When you visit a Web page, IE caches the page contents to disk so that the next time you visit the page, IE can read certain elements (e.g., images) from the local disk instead of having to download them again. This functionality also lets you view pages you've looked at before, even if you're not connected to the Web.

    IE stores the files in the \%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files folder (e.g., C:\Documents and Settings\john\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files). Although you can delete the content directly, which also removes all your cookies, the Microsoft-supported method is as follows:

    1. Go to the Control Panel Internet Options applet (or open IE, then select Internet Options from the Tools menu).
    2. Under the "Temporary Internet files" section on the General tab, click Delete Files. You can also select the "Delete all offline content" check box on the Delete Files dialog box to delete offline files.
    3. Click OK to return to the main dialog box.

    If you haven't previously deleted the temporary files, the delete process might be time consuming because it might need to delete thousands of small files.

    Q. How can I adjust the amount of space that Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) reserves for temporary Internet files?

    A. To modify the amount of space that IE uses for temporary files, perform the following steps:

    1. Go to the Control Panel Internet Options applet (or open IE, then select Internet Options from the Tools menu).
    2. Under the "Temporary Internet files" section, click Settings.
    3. Under the "Temporary Internet files folder" area, move the slider or enter the amount of space to use (in megabytes), then click OK.
    4. Click OK to return to the main dialog box.
