The media controls (buttons) when you use taskbar preview have disappeared randomly.

I have recently done a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro x64 and installed the latest version of foobar2000 with the columns_ui component which allows taskbar preview. It worked fine for a few weeks before the buttons (play,pause etc.) on the taskbar preview randomly disappeared. Iv'e tried re-installing foobar but no difference was made.

Also note, itunes can still display media control buttons in the task bar preview.
The only thing foobar related i did before it happened was use OblyTile to create a custom tile for foobar.

Hackers, Troops Rejoice: Pentagon Lifts Thumb-Drive Ban

The Pentagon has lifted the ban on removable media. So, what do you think? Smart move or asking for trouble?

The repeal, first reported by InsideDefense.com, may be good news for troops, who depend on the drives to move data in bandwidth-starved locations. But it may be good news for hackers, too. The original network security concerns which prompted the ban haven?t really been addressed, one Strategic Command cyber defense specialist tells Danger Room: "Not much changed. StratCom simply does not have the support to enforce such a ban indefinitely."

Here?s the situation: Windows 7 Ultimate is installed, and the original user (administrator) can unlock and lock the taskbar. However, any additional user (standard or administrator) is unable to unlock the taskbar. We have tried right clicking on the bar and clicking Taskbar Locked (which should unlock it) but when it brought up again, it is locked. We have tried right clicking , opening ?Properties? and then clicking unlock taskbar with the same result. Finally we have gone into Control Panel, opened Taskbar, clicked Unlock Taskbar. When we go back to the taskbar, it is locked.

Any ideas?

2.) In general, how can application shortcuts be pinned to the taskbar for All Users?

I am trying to find out how Lenovo has configured Win 7 such that each new user gets two icons- Lenovo Shop App and Lenovo Device Experience. I know a user can unpin them, but this is for a business and we cannot expect every user to be able to accomplish this task.

I know there is a local GPO that can eliminate pinned icons completely, but this is not what I want to achieve.

I have 3 programmes that run on all users taskbar. How do I prevent other users from gaining access to these programmes?
 

Answer:How do you prevent other users access to programmes running in taskbar?

Disable the guest account on your computer and log out of your account when you leave the computer. That will remove the desktop and anyone going to your computer will have to log in to gain access. With no account and the guest account disabled, only an authorized user with a proper password will be able to log in and see the desktop and programs.

Can someone tell me how to config Foobar 2000 GUI look like this?.


 

Answer:Foobar 2000 GUI

Stick this in your foobar2000 program folder (maybe profile folder, i use it in portable mode so not sure). you'll need to exit foobar first, and backup your old one.

I don't have that album list plugin or that visualization plugin, so you'll need to find those yourself

BTW goto View>Layout>Enable layout editing mode, then you can pretty much just rightclick on things and choose replace, like split an area into another area or add tabs then add stuff to each tab (mine if you want some ideas)

I use WinXP sp2. I have foobar 0.9.4 and GTA SA installed. They were working fine, but now if I play GTA SA with foobar running, GTA SA crashes - the whole comp slows to a crawl, music plays VERY slow - I then have to exit GTA SA, then on returning to WinXP, almost any operation - opening/closing program, changing track, etc freezes the whole machine.

I'm not sure where the problem is, but I'm fairly sure it is related to GTA and foobar. It annoys me most because I lose all my foobar settings each time, and a number of my xp settings have to be reset.

Question: Foobar icon cache

My right click menu for foobar is missing icons in the tasks section. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling foobar and rebuilding icon cache, neither have worked.

Answer:Foobar icon cache

It looks like it may just be a jump list issue. You can clear the jump list items and see if they are recreated correctly.

To clear Jump List recent history

To erase individual items:

Open the jump list for Foobar> Right click any Recent or Frequent item> Click Remove from this list

To erase all jump list items:

Right click the taskbar and then click Properties> In the dialog box that appears Click the Start Menu tab> Uncheck the box for Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar> Click Apply and ALL jump list recent history will be erased.

If you have items you want to save before deleting all:

Click on the Pin button next to any jump list recent history item

To reenable jump list history> Recheck the box and Click OK. Once you?ve erased the history, re-enabling it will not bring back old items.

Suggest running CCleaner after disable and delete. Wouldn't hurt to delete icon cache and thumbnail cache

If using CCleaner for the first time, be sure to uncheck cookies and anything else you don't want to clean. I hope this helps. A Guy

Okay so this started all of a sudden with no warning or anything. I was playing a game while listening to music on WMP, then suddenly my computer started freezing up and being slow. The audio would cut in and out of WMP, and Discord a VOIP app. I finally restarted my computer because I couldn't get WMP or Foobar to play an audio. After the reboot WMP and Foobar 2k still won't play audio without it stopping for 3-5 seconds every 30 seconds or so. This is so strange because it only happens in those media players as far as I know, it's not an issue with games, with chrome, or even with Ableton Live 9. What gives? Currently in the process of doing a driver sweep, and starting off fresh.

Hey Guys,

If you are using Kaspersky on Windows XP, and your Blue Shift is not working, I may have a solution for you. If you go into Kapersky, go to My Security Zone and then application activity. Go to Category and then click all. Scroll down until you find everything to do with Blue Shift ( Half Life Launcher, installation etc). Right click on each of these and change the status to Trusted. The game should work now. I hope this helps I've had the problem for a while and it was driving me nuts. I'd also like to thank the user "fragger" for giving me the idea to look at Kaspersky. If your reading this, hope it helps you out buddy.

Can anyone help me regain Security Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder which I lost while looking at the access rights. I mistakenly closed the box while playing with the access rights and lost any access to the file.
I pulled the access rights to the file using icacls they are below.

application data
D:PAI(D;OICI;FA;;;WD)(A;;0x1200a9;;;WD)(A;OICI;FA;;;SY)(A;OICI;FA;;;BA)S:AI

I am thinking I can change the information in the file and restore it. Not sure exactly what to change?

I was also thinking I could pull the info from another computer running with the same operating system and reapply them to this file? Would this work?

I looked at Previous Versions of the upper level folder. Can I restore a previous version of this whole folder? Will it restore the Application Data folder with the prior permissions?

Answer:Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

Are you asking about the Application Data or Appdata folder?

If Application Data, this is not a real folder but a junction used to allow interface with legacy programs. No access is necessary since it is pointing to the Appdata folder.

hi guys,

really need some help on this one cause i cant seem to get how something that sounds so simple is so hard to do.


i got a client with a workstation that has a local user account on it.
they also have a domain which he has another account on there.

so i have local account joe1 and domain account joe2. now i need to get joe 1 to combind and merge outlook and my docs with joe2. and then get joe2 to stay on the server so that it remains a account that can be accesses on any computer on the domain network. with this in mind the user profile needs to be saved on the server and the profile can be copied to the computer that his sitting at when he loggs on.


anyway i can figure out how to move the local (joe1) account to the server (joe2)i have tried a command moveuser but i keep getting a parameter error on there (error 87) .

i typed it like this

moveuser joe1 (company doamin)\joe2 /c:\\(client machine)

please can anyone help me one this

User 1 logs in and works does whatever... Doesn't log out but screensaver goes back to user screen. 
 
User 2 logs in (switching users - not logging out user 1) and gets to work. 
 
Sometime later (ie. not right away) and not at a prescribed time, the network stops working.  
 
I try to disable / enable the network adapter and the machine freezes.   Reboot fixes problem.
 
If user 1 or user 2 is the only one logged in then never a problem.
 
Anyone heard of this? 
Thanks for any help!
 

Answer:Multiple Windows 7 Users-Switch between Users-network stops working

When switching users, it's always a good idea to have User 1 close out any applications and documents they have open and then log out before User 2 logs in. It sounds like you have fast user switching enabled, but I'm not aware of that causing any network issues -- unless User 1 was doing something that required a network connect.
 
Check the Event Viewer for error logs from the time it froze when you tried to disable and enable the network adapter. Post the event ID and description here if you need help diagnosing the issue from the log files. Perhaps another fix is to disable fast user switching, so that users are always forced to log out before someone else can log in.

How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

All of my computers are wired... but, I would like to give my retired neighbor (he's 64 years old) wireless access. But, I don't want him or anyone else access to my shared files b/w desktop/laptop. So, should I put it on a different subnet? Do I need a 2nd router? Right now, I have the BEFSR41 with a WAP11 AP on 192.168.1.245 with the router on 192.168.1.1 (both are 255.255.255.0 subnet).

Thanks!
 

Answer:How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

I would setup a DMZ, you can do this by using two physical routers or something like smooth wall with multiple nics. If I were you I would setup smooth wall on a crap old box and install 3 network cards into the old computer. Hooking your cable modem to one of the network cards in the smoothwall box will be like pluggin in your cable modem to the wan port on the back of your router. I would plug your wireless router into to the next nic on your smooth wall box. If your neighbor is the only one using the wireless do the following. Enable WEP, don't broadcast your ssid, filter by mac address, and limit the total number of connections to 1. That should keep your wireless rather secure. With the final network card in the smooth wall box attach either a standard switch or even another router. Smooth wall has built in DHCP support and it will allow you to set a range of ips.Hard wire all your home computer to the switch and your in business.

working with vista homeprem sp2 32bit here. ran a quick avast scan a few minutes ago, it caught some small-time junk in the temporary internet files (which were purged easily enough), but it also pointed out C:\users\all users as "the system cannot find the path specified". so I open up windows explorer and try to go there. cue the "refers to a location that is unavailable" error message. now, I don't usually need to prod around in there so I'm not familiar with what normally happens, but I know vista loves to have a bunch of directories displayed that are shortcuts it uses for people who leave "hide protected OS files" checked (I don't, I want to see what's where) which really ought to not be shown when you're not hiding stuff but I digress, that's for MS to be groused at after win8 flops.

SO. should I panic that I've had another thing sneak past the security screens (mvp hosts file, spyware blaster, avast's shields, mbam scans)? nothing else seems out of sorts, but one man's paranoia is another man's preparation, and all.

I don't remember when, but I availed myself of the free Windows 10 upgrade sometime back. I was using 8.1 and I had, at some point, moved C:\Users and all its associated folders to E:. Everything has worked fine and Win10 didn't have a problem. I did notice that there was still a C:\Users, but the only folder it contains is Administrator.

This was probably not a good move to make. Moving data folders, like Pictures, Documents, etc., is fine, but moving the actual User Profiles was not such a good idea. My E: drive is no longer large enough to hold all my photos and other data. I bought a replacement drive large enough, but having my Users Profiles on E: is now a problem and I want to move them back to C:, only without the data folders.

I can delete all the existing data files from those default folders (I have backed them all up), so now I need to find a way to restore the Users folder and contents to C:. I've tried researching the problem, but found nothing that specifically applies to my situation. The TenForums article, "Relocating Users folder on an existing Windows installation" Seems to be as close as I can get. Unfortunately, this part has made me take pause and ask you all for help:






Kari said:

Be sure that the drive into which you are relocating the Users folder is empty or at least does not contain any Windows system folders, especially Users folder or parts of it from any current or previous Windows install... Read more

Answer:Restore Users Profiles back to C:\Users without data folders

Jim McClain said:

Do you know what I should do? Maybe Kari's still around and can reply? Any guidance would be appreciated.



If you used the Sysprep method to relocate the Users folder to E: drive, you can use the same method to relocate it back to C: drive. The warning you quoted is when doing this in a clean install, it does not apply when moving Users folder back to C: drive which will always be accepted and OK for Windows.

Follow these simple steps (looks more complicated than it in reality is!):

Create a new, temporary local user account, name it as you wish like "Dummy" or such (tutorial)Change Dummy's account type to administrator (tutorial)Sign out from all other user accounts, sign in to DummyDisable all other user accounts except Dummy, the one you are currently signed in (tutorial). No worries, accounts and their data will remain intact, deactivating (disabling) them temporarily is done because sometimes Sysprep causes existing user accounts to lose Start and Search / Cortana functionality. When we are ready we will again activate (enable) all old user accountsWhen done, open an elevated Notepad (right click and select Run as Administrator) copy the following code and paste it to a new text document]:

Hi everyone,

I am the web masters of a local snowmobile club and our new website is having a few problems with printing. Please take a look at the site, http://www.strathroysnoblizzards.com/Strathroy_Sno-Blizzards/index.html

As you can see it has a black background which when printed on my Mac OS X has no problems with printing (it leaves out black background and keeps the text and images) and prints everything.

The problem is that one of our members are ticked that they can not print the site because of the black showing up above the text and images and I really don't want to change the background because it look good the way it is, so is there any way to change to printer settings or some ideas for him to help him out with this problem.

Second problem is that out of 4 pages, 2 are blank with nothing on it and there is suppose to be text and images on those pages, anyway how to fix this too?

Thanks Guys

What is the best way to share execution priviledges between limited users, power users, and administrators?

Say an application has already been installed by a higher priviledged user type, and a limited user cannot execute it - e.g. an ISP login software, or Spy Sweeper. Note: ISP login software lacks profile, so I suppose I could just create that, however, Spy Sweeper is a head scratcher.

Should the application be uninstalled and reinstall under All Users? How do you install an application to allow All Users to use it?

I have already tried to use the "Run As" right-click Properties w/Shift key approach and that does not work.

Is there an approach with regard to local security policy that would do what I want to do? How is that done? Or, is Access Control List the way to go?

How can I hide the folders of each User from any other Guests, not only in the Library but also in their actual location in the hard drives?

Answer:Hiding Users' files from Guest Users

OK this appears to be a simple permissions issue.

go to your root folder on the D: drive and right click the folder and select properties.

on the security tab you should see a list of those who have access to the folder - Make sure that your user has full rights and remove all rights to the "everyone" user group. This when OK'd should xascade down to all files and folders contained in the folder

If you wish you can adjust the rights available to any other particular user on the system - Make sure that you do not remove or change any rights given to system or administrative users unless you fully understand the result

This references: Quick Launch Bar: icons don't wrap even though there is room - a post by chillz which discovers a "bug" with the taskbar not resetting the row-sizing for toolbars when dragging the taskbar to the left then back to the bottom.

I, for a while now, have been using a custom quick-launch toolbar on my taskbar with the taskbar being 2 unit-lines in height and having the taskbar on my secondary ( left ) monitor. When I first set this up it showed 3 lines of small icons in the toolbar and up to 2 lines on the standard taskbar. This was perfect because the toolbar didn't reset the order every time I launched an application contrary to how the pinned application system works. With pinned applications, no matter what position I drop the icon, the order always resets and floats from place to place so that system of organizing icons is disgusting because you have apps between icons of apps that aren't running some times and other times the running applications are above and below with or without grouping enabled.

The vertical display would be the ideal way for me to view unlaunched applications ( see aforementioned topic ) because they group together and launched apps come after; in horizontal mode the taskbar is chaotic without a toolbar organizing the apps to one side but then you lose the functionality of the pinned-application system ( if you forfeit usage of that chaotic horizontal system in favor of how the vertical system works but in horizontal mod...

Hey all, my girlfriend is running Win 7 Home... she has always had the default Windows speaker "volume" icon down on her task bar by her clock. She uses it all the time to switch between her speakers and her headset, where she right clicks on the icon and selects "playback devices" and then changes between her soundcard/speakers and her usb headset.

Anyway, it disappeared last night.

Now open Taskbar, click on the "customize" link, get the window to select which icons appear... on the speaker "volume" icon under behaviors, it is set to "show icon and notifications"...

HOWEVER.

Then at the bottom click the link for "turn system icons on or off" and on that window, the icon is greyed out and set to OFF and it can not be changed to ON.

She's been bugging the heck out of me ever since to fix it.

We have no idea what changed it, or how it got changed.... we just know its been there and she's used it, for the past two years, and now its suddenly not there.

Any suggestions?

Hello Nyarlathotep,

You might see if step 9 in Option Two in the tutorial below may be able to enable the Volume icon again.

System Icons - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,

Hi all,

Past items in Taskbar.

There are many leftover items of software that I used to have before in this section. For one reason or another they're still showing up as past items, although I removed that software a long time ago in the Add/Remove Programs. Do these items interfere with the speed of starting up the computer? I like to have my 'puter as clean as possible.

I would like to remove them if possible but can't find a way to do it.

1. Can they be removed?
2. If so, HOW?

Windows XP Home.

Thank you!
 

Answer:Taskbar and Start Menu Properties (past items in Taskbar)

Hi oma

Yes you can remove these as they are not automatically removed when software is removed, no they dont hamper the startup process, but I personally like to remove them as I like things tidy, just need a simple button to do this proces automatically and one thing I have suggested to MSFT to add.


Open Regedit ( goto Start > Run and type regedit and hit enter )
Locate the registry key location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify and right click the folder and choose Export ( this will backup that location for you )

then Delete the two values mentioned in bold ( agian right click each of them and choose delete ) IconStreams and PastIconsStream once deleted hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and look for explorer.exe in the Processes Tab and click it and choose End Process ( at this point it is perfectly normal for your taskbar and all desktop icons to disapear )

Then with the Task Manager still open click the top menu option of New Task (Run...) and in the Open box type explorer and hit enter.


Then when you check the Customize Notifications they will all be gone ( apart from some running ones ) best bet is to restore all your actual running tray processes is to re-boot.




Note for Vista users only this is slightly different as below.

Hello all,
So about a month ago I restarted my computer and when it came back on all my programs pinned to my task bar and everything that was in my start menu was gone. From there I could not unlock the taskbar and nothing would pin in either the start menu or taskbar. I researched everywhere about it. I tried unlocking the taskbar in properties and registry with no luck. I finally found some posts about how my user profile was corrupt and from there I went on and made a new profile and copied everything and BOOM it all worked fine now. Well today it happened AGAIN! I restarted my computer and everything disappeared. So I think it is still a corrupt profile, but this is the second time it has happened. My question is. 1) is there another way to fix those two issues besides creating a new profile? and 2) What could be the cause of this happening twice in a month. Would a reformat fix it or is it a hardware issue?

ADD: I forgot to mention my outlook email profiles are gone too. Those somehow got erased as well.
 

Answer:Cannot unlock taskbar AND cannot pin anything on taskbar or start menu AND Outlook Pr

Did you run chkdsk on your drives to eliminate possibility of file corruption or cross-linking ?

Is there a method/hack or a 3rd-party program that allows the user to hide the taskbar by dragging its top border line downwards, after un-locking the taskbar? I remember I could do that under Win9x.

Answer:Drag top border line of taskbar downwards to hide taskbar

Well the autohide feature is still there I actually find it easier to deal with than manually moving it, which often results in accidentally pulling the taskbar to horizontal or something.
