Question: Intel Graphics HD, no "Override Application Settings"

Evening,

I recently purchased a new asus X751S for college and i looked for something that can also support some of my steam games. This laptop so far is perfect however there is one thing that I am not sure how to fix.

What I'm looking for is this

I've noticed that some of the websites I've visited that have flash movies have "no-cache" "no-store" headers that seem to prevent (or "ask" I should say) my browser (Firefox) from locally caching the movies to my HD. This is a bit of a nuisance when I revisit the same video and have to wait for it to download all over again.

Just curious, but can you override this in Firefox, i.e. force Firefox to locally cache the videos? Sure would save some time when I watch long videos again (or in most cases--show it to a friend!).

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Can you override "no-cache", "no-store" headers?

In case anyone else is interested, I did find a solution. Someone in another forum pointed me to "Proxomitron" (www.proxomitron.info). Basically you set it up as a local proxy on your computer, and then you can easily use it to modify the incoming html pages to your browser so that they no longer have the no-cache no-store headers. Works great!

Another similar solution might be Privoxy (www.privoxy.org) which is another local proxy program for your computer, but you have to be versed in PERL to set up its filters/rules.

Hello,

Currently I have a working dual boot XP (on SATA1) and 2000 (on IDE2) and are using the Gigabyte VIA RAID drivers on both. 2000 is slower than XP.
Should I install the "Intel Application Accelerator"?
Is it reliable, supported and faster?

Regards
Phil
 

Answer:Solved: Should I install "Intel Application Accelerator"?

If you are using the Intel connectors for any of the drivers then yes it would be a good idea to install the latest Intel Application Accelerator. You can get the latest version from here: http://tw.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Products/Products_Spec_GA-8I915P Duo Pro.htm

But you do realise that the IDE drive is in fact physically slower then the SATA drive. 5400 vs 7200 RPM spin and 2 vs 8 MB cache.

Answer:"Application Has Been Blocked from Accessing Graphics Hardware"

It can be caused by video drivers or bad video card. Try updating drivers if you didn't

I am having an issue where I have a game running, it freezes for several seconds, screen goes black, and then comes back as normal. I check my notifications and it says "Application banned from accessing graphics hardware."

I have updated my graphics driver, and have the latest version of the game.

Hello there.

I didn't find the category where to post the problem, so I post this here. But, okay, anyways, I have too tell my problem...

So, yesterday, I decided to update my "Intel HD Graphics Driver", so I went to official site, site "scanned" my computer for outdated version - so, It's outdated. And then I downloaded the update.

I opened the .EXE file. Everything went well, till It started to install. It didn't install the whole component and screen went black. Then, I saw the blue screen with white text, It looked like this:

Not my photo by the way...

And it lagged. PC didn't restart, anything. So I turned it off. Then, when It started I saw the screen like this:

So, I clicked on "Launch Windows Normally". It showed me the same screen again, but It shut down. When I got this screen again and I clicked on "Launch Startup Repair (Recommended)". I got Windows 7 screen, then It showed me the table:

I had to wait a lot of time, but It finished and It explained me, If problems are fixed, Windows will start normal, If it's not, It'll fix the problems again. I click "Finish" to restart and then It showed me the blue screen. I had to turn off my computer again. Then, before the Windows was preparing to launch, I pressed F8 to bring up this screen:

Answer:"Intel HD graphics" update install crashed the computer

Click Start and right-click Computer then click Properties.

Open Device Manager and double-click Display Adapters, then double-click your graphics adapter.

Click the Driver tab and click the Rollback Driver button to uninstall the updated driver and revert to the original one.

When you have Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) drivers installed they may be set up differently than the manufacturer's drivers, which is where conflicts can arise.

If this doesn't work, boot into Safe Mode and choose System Restore to the point where you updated your graphics driver.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate (Build 7000) on an lenovo pc (Intel Pentium 4 - 2.8GHz, 2.00 GB RAM). my pc's actual graphics card is "Intel 82865G Graphics Controller" but windows 7 loads it as "standard VGA graphics card" which gives me a very very bad video quality but computer works great. HOWEVER,when i update video graphics back to my "Intel 82865G Graphics Controller" & play any video, the video quality is excellent & direct 3d & hardware acceleration starts working contrary to "standard VGA graphics card" but gives major computer operation problems. For e.g., As soon as i resize my VLC interface or run any other media players (like powerdvd or windows media players etc), the computer either gets stuck/hung or it shows a blue screen message saying "disable bios memory such as caching or shadowing" OR "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" & lots of other explorer based problems.i tried changing various 3d settings in opengl as well, but in vain.


CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS??

ITS A MAJOR BUG in WINDOWS 7.

I MEAN U CANNOT ASK SOMEONE TO UPGRADE his OPERATING SYSTEM AT THE EXPENSE OF CHANGING HIS HARDWARES.

THANK YOU.

Answer:"Intel 82865G Graphics Controller" doesn't work ??

It is a driver issue. I suggest that you download the driver from HP website, remove the existed driver and install the new downloaded driver.

So I just re installed windows 7 on my system. I have done this several times before, and I had a package of drivers which I would always use in the same order. In the past I have had no issues with this, it all worked smoothly. This time however, I have been plagued with blue screens and errors.

Among these is an issue with the Intel Graphics drivers. When I attempt to run the Intel Graphics installers, both straight from Intel, and from my motherboard manufacturer, I get an error "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software". I am using the 64 bit version to go with my 64 bit OEM version of 7 professional, and I am using the HD4000 drivers for my ivybridge 3770k. The latest version I tried and failed with was Driver Revision: 15.31.3.64.3071, the latest on Intel's site. My other specs can be seen in my sig.

I have spent some time Googling for answers, but they generally involve solutions like "Uninstall your current version and re install the 64 bit version for your OS", but I haven't got a version already installed, and I am already trying to install the 64 bit version. Or "You aren't using the right version of the drivers", but I am virtually certain I am using the right version, unless I've forgotten which CPU I have.....which I haven't.

Has anyone else ever experienced and solved this issue, or does anyone know a possible solution?

Thanks,
Tom

Answer:Intel Graphics Driver "Do Not Reach Minimum Requirements"

Have you just tried running windows update to get the drivers ?

Why are you installing graphics drivers for the cpu, aren`t you using just the 7950 ?

I manually restarted each service in its list and found my problems: Application Information refused to stop on its own, but User Profile Service, which takes Application Information down with it, solved my CPU drain. Yesterday, the windows services locked me out. When I tried to stop the problem services, I got "Error 1061: The service cannot accept control messages at this time." Fearing a virus, I tried to run Malwarebytes, but it gave me the same error message. I managed to run it in safe mode, but this did not solve the problem.

Hi Everyone !!


Brief:-> 

we have developed a portal for the suppliers where in we have confugured the sites to be open in client higer version of IE with the below code.


Web.Config:->

 <customHeaders>
             <add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=Edge"/>
        <add name="X-Frame-Options" value="DENY"/>
      </customHeaders>

ISSUE : 

The issue is that when we launch our portal in IE. THE IE turns Enterprise Mode on  by doing so it will try to Emulate IE in version 8 which is not really required as my clients are having latest version of IE , why Enterprise mode on will target to lower
versions .. 

Kindly let me know the fix on this , if any questions post it ,let me revert back.

Help!

My HDD recently crashed and I'm trying to recover my Outlook.pst file using the Windows Recovery Console - logged in as the Administrator. I can see the files just fine with a "dir" command. However, when I try to "copy" the file I get "access denied". There has to be a way around this? Is there some way to change the attributes such that I can copy it?

Thanks,

Answer:how to override "access denied" when copying files in Windows Recovery

I don't think you can do this with the recovery console. By default, for security reasons, the recovery console will only allow access to the root of all drives plus the Windows folder. There is a registry setting that will change this, but you can't change that with recovery console.

Hello,

I don't know why but, since this option to override refresh rates from within NVIDIA driver control panel was introduced, it has never really worked for me. All games ran only at 60Hz. Riva Tuner has no such features either. So I had to use ReForce to override monitor refresh rates instead of overriding rates of the card.

Now, as I saw that this situation is not common among other users, I'm really curious if there is anything wrong with me.

Please do not offer to re-install the system, as it is what I keep doing once a couple of months.

Hi,

I'm using Windows 10 th2-10511 x64 and when I install EMET 5.5 final the EMET system service is installed with the "delayed start" flag and the service and never starts after a reboot. The same thing happened with the beta version, I didn't notice
it until the final was released. This issue doesn't occurs with EMET 5.2.
I switched the service back to the normal Automatic (not delayed) start, and everything seems to be working again. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this issue?


Also, can someone enlighten me about this warning message "DEP/ASLR Policy settings are ineffective by default; see user's guide on how to enable them". It appears when I enable the DEP/ASLR EMET GPO. I couldn't find any reference to this warning
message in the user guide. DEP seems to be enabled, I have no idea how to check for ALSR other than Process hacker that shows ASLR as N/A.

We are getting the above error randomly on some of the laptops we have deployed. The error comes right after you boot or when the windows 7 is left running. There are no special software running. The error in details is below.
"The boot configuration Data (BCD) settings for the following boot application have changed since Bitlocker was enabled
boot appplication: \windows\system32\winload.exe
change settings: 0x26000090
You must supply a bitlocker recovery key to start this system.
Confirm that the changes to the BCD settings are trusted.

If the changes are trusted then suspend and resume bitlocker. This will reset bitlocker to use the new BCD settings.
Otherwise restore the original BCD settings"
 
Can anyone please explain on how to correct this error. As before this is happening on few of the machines and we are seeing more as we go. Any tips would be nice...Thanks

I added a slave drive to my Windows XP Pro computer, and it appears to work properly.

However, when I open the "Documents and Settings" folder (on the slave drive E:\, which is Windows XP Home Edition -- not XP Pro), I do not see any of my documents, sub-folders, etc. There should be MANY sub-folders (inside the "My Documents" folder which isn't even visible), with hundreds of documents, jpgs, etc. within it.

When that drive is installed as the Primary drive in my other computer, the User "Larry" (which is me) has all Administrative privileges. On the computer that I'm running now (with the slave drive in it), I also have Administrator privileges. I own both computers.

My User Name "Larry" is password-protected when I login to Windows (when the drive is Primary and installed into my main computer (not this computer with XP Pro).

I've tried clicking on all the users; Administrator, Default User, Larry, Guest, etc. (Note: I get an "Access Denied" error when clicking on the Guest "Documents and Settings" folder).

2. There's supposed to be a folder named "My Documents," but I can't find it. Normally, that path is "C:\Documents and Settings\My Documents".

The "Idle-time Full System Scan" in Norton 360 v4 is bogging down my computer constantly, and there is no option to turn it off in "Automatic Tasks".

I contacted Norton and (after several attempts to find someone at Norton who could understand what I just said above and getting "hung-up" on over Norton chat. Inexcusable!!!) I was able to get a hold of a technician who told me that Norton intentionally removed this option "for security reasons, because they didn't want people turning it off".

The problem is, people will then be forced to turn it off by turning off ALL scheduled tasks (under "Settings/Scheduling/Schedule:Manual Schedule") and that is an even worse security problem than the relatively small one that would be created by turning off idle-time full system scanning.

Once the system has completed a full system scan, all files are on-access scanned anyway, so running a full system scan every 3-4 days is rather silly and extremely annoying--especially, because it will continue to try to run every time the system is idle if you cancel it.

A warning urging the user to not turn off idle-time full system scans without fully understanding the risks, and after explaining the risks, would be VERY preferable. Or at least the option to run the full system scans when the system is idle on a certain day of the month/week! The schedule for idle-time full system scans really needs to be separate from other tasks. In fact, t... Read more

I am running win2k sp4 on one of my desktops.
Monitor is an older 17 in crt, made by Royal Information.
When the kids are playing some games after a while the picture disappears and "override dpms" appears on the screen. The only way we have been able to get the screen back is to reboot. I have noticed that when this does happen that there is a ticking noise coming from inside the case. I have checked event viewer and nothing to guide me. I don't know if there is a specific elapsed period of time when this issue occurs. It does not happen when the pc is just idle.

Note: I don't know if this is related, video card is ATI X800XL, occassionally during game play ATI control centre displays the vpu recovery message (due to the infinite loop issue).

After the recent Win10 update, my nvidia graphics cards were updated too (Titan+1070) and since whenever I use Blender 3D (and I suppose any other graphics software including games but I haven't tried) audio (ie. background music) is making random clicks/pops.

It was never a problem before the update.

This is exactly the reason I hate when Win10 updates automatically and no options are available for disabling automatic download of updates. It ALWAYS make more problems than it solves. Before the update, my PC worked just fine there was absolutely no reason ever to have Microsoft mess up my PC!

I demand a solution to this problem!

I bought a computer back in December with Windows Vista 64-Bit Home Premium. I set most folders to "view list" and either "sort by date modified" ascending or "sort by name" ascending. It seems like most of the time when I go to a folder after having changed another folder's "view _____" or "sort by _____" or ascending\descending settings regardless of of what directory it's in, the folder will have changed to different "view by _____" and\or "sort by _____" and\or ascending\descending settings. Anybody know of a fix? Thanks!
 

Answer:Vista and "sort by _" and "view _" folder settings changing from what I set it to

Welcome to probably the most irritating Vista problem in existence. Microsoft has not even acknowledged that this is a problem yet the web is absolutely overrun by people complaining about it.

The problem is there is left over XP code and the folder settings are stored in 2 places, one for XP and one for Vista. Also, the automatic folder 'sense' that Vista has, where it determines the contents and adjust the folder accordingly, effects it. Those 3 registry keys basically fight over the settings. I've actually had the folders reset, then go back on their own before. Basically the fix that people have the best luck with is erasing the XP keys, increasing the 'bag' size, to store more folder information, and to disable the auto sense. You then have to manually set folders to Music, Pictures and Video, etc...

1. Go to Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization -> Folder Options.
2. View tab -> Uncheck Remember each folder view settings.
3. Press Reset all folders, then apply to all folders. Press apply, then OK.
4. Run the following registry file. Copy this text into a Notepad file. Save it as 'all files', so you can add your own extension. Name it something like Fix.reg ... it will appear as a registry file that merges with the registry.

Code:

Hello guys,

I don't know what I did, but nothing happens when I click on those two things in the search bar:

I reinstalled Windows a few hours ago, and IIRC pressing those with the mouse lead somewhere. Now when I click on them, it does nothing. I have to type in "Settings", so I can click on the actual Windows App. Then I can navigate to those settings. IIRC those results were "clickable".

Can somebody help?

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)

To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!

I recently built a new computer and installed Windows 10 Pro Creators Update (version 1703) and just noticed that I have never had icons for Phone or Cortana in my Settings. These settings are also not available in the search bar within Settings. See attached screenshots below.

Since I've heard of issues like this resulting from pirated software, I'd like to clarify that I purchased and downloaded the OS directly from Microsoft and installed it onto a brand new SSD and have had no issues with the machine once I got the overclock stable.

Thanks in advance for any and all tips!

Answer:No icons for "Phone" or "Cortana" in Windows settings

If you like you can update to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using either Windows Update or Windows 10 Media Creation Tool this will resolve your problem.

My notebook is set to the recommended screen resolution, under display settings that allows you to change the text size indepdenent of the screen resolution, I was expecting to see 3 radio buttons (as per the windows 7 tutorial) but I can see only "Small" and "medium". I haven't played around with different screen resolutions to see if it has any effect.

I wonder if it needs some driver update or related to my screen resolution or whatever? Thanks.

Answer:display settings only shows "Small" & "Medium"

I really don't know, but the Nvidia driver automatically makes some adjustments, depending on what it is installed on. I suspect that they feel no one would want the large text on a small display.

I do have my WiFi internet working, I can access internet all right. But if I go to Windows 10 Settings and then try to open "Network & Internet", it takes forever and it does not load. While that happens, performance temporarily decreases, even Synaptics touch pad has some freezes/jumps. Eventually performance gets back to normal, but "Network & Internet" is still unopened.

Also, if I click on the WiFi icon on Windows 10 Notification Area at Taskbar (at the bottom right of the screen), it does not pop-up, or it pops-up with an empty list of available connections (instead of a list that would have a dozen connections, including my own). Just to click on such icon triggers a Taskbar freeze. So, after that, I can't make Start button to work, I can't use the search field, I can't make any Taskbar icons to pop-up. My only way out is to open Task Manager, finish "Windows Explorer", go to File then create a new task with "Explorer.exe". Then Taskbar is good again, but I can't touch its WiFi symbol on Notification Area, or else Taskbar will freezes.

Dear Forum,

I downloaded a number of images in the Pictures section of File Explorer, unaware they were simultaneously being downloaded to the Photos section as well. I chose delete all the pictures in the Picture section, but the same picture remain in the Photo section of the Start menu. So, I am trying to delete them all there as well.

Two questions:

1.) How do I ensure that, in the future, things I choose to download-like these images-don't wind up in my desktop in more than one place at a time?

2.) When I went to the Photos section, I was able to select individual images and delete them, but I can't seem to find a "Select All" option in the Photos app so I can get rid of all of them at once. Too many to do, individually. On the left side I see option in a column like, Unpin from Start, Resize >, Turn Live Tiles On, and Pin to Task Bar. On the right side across the bar, are icons for: Refresh, Select, and See More. I've tried them all, but I can't find anything like a "Select All" option. When I hit the Select button, little squares appear on the upper right hand corner of each photograph, but I still need to insert a check for each image, individually. Can't seem to check them all at once. So, what do I do here, also?

Today at some point all this "Antivirus Software" started popping up telling me how my computer was terribly infected and I need to downloaded their software to get rid of it etc. Well I never had that software so I knew something was wrong. Now I keep getting these "Antivirus software alert" popups that say INFILTRATION ALERT - Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus etc etc and gives details and asks if I want to block this attack. But mainly popups come up every 30 seconds or so saying, "Application cannot be executed. The file wmiadap.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" I noticed the file changes. Sometimes rundll32.exe or wuauclt.exe. I ran SuperAntiSpyware before I found here because it was the only thing suggested that I could find. I only got it to work in the short window that I had when I would restart my computer, then could download the file quickly, then I had to restart again and start the scan because after about 2 minutes, everything on my computer is worthless. Can't open any files, downloads, anything. So I'm typing this through a sea of popups and Security Warning windows and past porn popups. Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:"VRAM: Shared"? And Graphics "Card" Question

HI Glenn

Moved your thread to hardware for you

Yes you are very correct VRAM is video ram and the shared part is generally for onboard graphics solutions like the Intel HD Graphics, so what it does is have limited RAM on the video hardware itself and then uses a portion of your main system ram to top this up.

Sadly Glenn, updating a laptop graphics is not worth the hassle or cost and in some cases you just could not do it, dependant on model as the space to fit new hardware would not be available

Question what is it you need good graphics for as in many cases for daily usage onboard graphics will be fine (Surfing, Office, Email, mid range image editing and basic games), if you wanted this laptop for mid to high end gaming then always better off with a desktop and good mid/high graphics card, but this depends on the games.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

I may not be asking this question correctly, and I know the phrase "recover" might throw some people... so let me see if I can describe my question better.I have a Compaq Presario V2000 that runs Windows XP (version 2002, Service Pack 2). I'm considering giving it away, donating it, or otherwise disposing of it. I'd like to re-set everything so that when I boot it up the next time, all the software, files, settings are exactly like they were the first time I booted it up. In other words.... I want to wipe out all my files, cookies, credit card info, etc. I don't care about backing up anything; I just want it all to be like it was when the thing was new.BTW, I did a search and couldn't find any threads that answeredmy question. But, when you're as "computer dumb" as I am, sometimes asking the question is the hardest part. 

Answer:How do I "recover" the computer back to "out of box" settings?

What you are wanting to do is often called a reformat, or a clean install. With your computer, you should have had a set of discs that came with it. Find the one titled Operating System, put it in your computer, and restart. Go through the set up. Note:This will delete all your data... which, if you have not backed up, could be a potential issue. Also, if you stored any secured information on the computer, you may consider waiting for someone to recommend good hard drive "shredding" software before donating it. A physical removal of all data can be done to the drive if you plan on destroying it.

When i try to put in a CD into my CD-ROM drive, the Drive light on my computer starts to flicker showing its working but the CDs wont load.

I double click on the F:/ Icon to see if it will load from there but i get a message saying "F:/ Is not a valid Win32 application" Whats wrong? Data and power cables are plugged in.
 

Answer:CD-ROM ""F:/ Is not a valid Win32 application" Message

I would go into your Hardware manager
(Start\control pannel\system\hardware\device manager)
and uninstall your CD rom (not disable, uninstall), then restart.
It'll save time to have the specific drivers for your CDrom - although, that might be the problem in the first place. If it still fails to work, uninstall it again and use whatever drivers Windows recommends.


What it sounds like to me is your hardware configurations have been changed. Your CD rom is getting power, so it's able to read the CD, but it's unable to send the information.

I would also check your bios, perhaps your
Motherboard isn't recognizing it? If that's the case then your might have to enter it manually ( I don't know how to do that) or it could be as simple as changing the value from "none" to "automatic"
An easy way to see if your CDrom is even being recognized at all is to watch the bios boot screen. It'll usually say
"primary master :yourOShardrive
primary slave : yourCDrom"


Do you have your CD rom and hard drive (or other hardware) on the same cable? Does your CDrom have master/slave pins in the back?

Hope some of these solutions work for ya ^^

Guys

I'm not sure if I've posted the right at the right place, but still........ I want to know that "" How do I change the "Open Settings" found in the Computer tab of the File Explorer to "Open Control Panel" ""

I have a screenshot of that:
I want to change it because I have a habit of having that "Open Control Panel" there as in Windows 8.1 for the reason that the Settings is just an app reference to the original Control Panel and many advanced settings are referred to Control Panel.

And I'm lazy to type "Co" everytime in Cortana to open Control Panel.

Awaiting for replies.....

Answer:How do I change "Open Settings" in Explorer to "Open Control Panel"

Welcome to TenForums @Preetkaran

We have a tutorial for that...
Show Control Panel or Settings on Win+X Menu in Windows 10

But I haven't bothered. Instead I found Control Panel in the Start menu's 'All apps > Windows system' and pinned it to Start. The advantage of having it pinned to Start is that a right-click on the tile shows a 'Recent' jumplist for it, all your frequently used Control Panel settings in one convenient place.

Hi
I've come back home on holiday from university and am having trouble with reconnecting to my home wireless network.

When I started uni, I had to change settings on my browser(Firefox) and computer to connect to the university network. The instructions for which or here if they are any help (Configure your laptop/PC :: Wireless Access at Aberdeen - DIT, University of Aberdeen click on windows7).

Currently, the wireless network I'm trying to connect to is a BTHomeHub with "shared" "WEP" settings. What do my computer settings need to be for this?

Hopefully someone can help, thanks :)

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

I can't figure out how to make multiple IP/DNS/Gateway configurations depending on the network I'm on.

When at home and at a friend's, I need to set manual IPs.

When not at home, I need to have DHCP. How can I do this on Vista? I know that under the IPv4 network settings you can set the information there, but that applies to all the networks the computer knows... not just a single network. Is there a way to do this? I have the Ultimate version.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

I don't know who Kenny Hartwick is, but deleting temp files is NOT a problem. Just get his permission, willya.

Answer:Unable to Change Proxy Settings! "Some settings are managed by your organization"

Not sure this will work, but it's worth a shot I think..
Restart you device and boot to safe mode. Then you go to the proxy settings, and turn it off. Double click LAN settings to see if its completely off. If it worked log off safe mode, boot normally and check if that did actually resolve anything..

I have a new PC with Windows Vista 64-bit. I downloaded a game client and went to run it's startup application; this is the message it gives me: C:\Program Files\WarhammerOnline_Beta_FP\setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
I have downloaded this same game client before and have run it's applications successfully with no problems on my previous PC (Windows XP). I feel like this may be an operating system issue, as I am aware that Vista 64-bit does not support many applications and software that XP or other operating systems do at this time.

I'm trying to run VIPRERESCUE to check for rootkit virus's, but when I dbl click on the application, I get a pop up saying "application can't be run in Win32 mode." I'm using a system that is loaded with the 64 bit version of Win 7 Home Premium.

I have run this successfully in the past (don't remember how long ago) and was able to get it to run without any problems. So I know that something is different, but not what it is - I don't know who to even set a pc in win32 mode.

All of my scans with: Norton and Malwarebytes claim my system is clean. I've also run Microsoft's safety scanner, and ESET's online scanner with the same result.

Can anyone tell me: What win32 mode is, (I assume it's a setting to run legacy software) and how to set it and disable it?

I've never seen this particular msg. before.

Answer:"application" can't be run in win32 mode"

If this is it:
VIPRE Rescue - VIPRE Computer Recovery Solution from Sunbelt Software

command line usage says to boot into Safe Mode. I would guess when it complains about Win32Mode it means it's not meant to be run when the system is booted normally. Just a guess. I've never used it or seen it before.

Can I access my Netscape WebMail or Hotmail accounts through Thunderbird?

No. Netscape WebMail and Hotmail use proprietary protocols. To access WebMail directly through an e-mail client requires you to use Netscape 6+ with AIM; to do so with Hotmail requires either Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. Of course, you can access your WebMail account on the Web at http://webmail.netscape.com/, or Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com/.

Windows 7 Home Premium

I would provide a screenshot (or three) however that is at the crux of my problem - I should perhaps say my current problem...now, with "7" (I am beginning to tire RAPIDLY of 7, much more quickly than I did with either XP, or Vista).

PROBLEM: When I attempt to "Save As" a document (Notepad, for instance), or even a Paint image, I get a window/page/screen/whatever, that has no "Buttons" ... no button to "Save", no button to "Cancel". Simply NO BUTTONS???

I had this problem the other night, and we "faked" or cheated our way through it, by using the Enter (Return?) Key to advance the cursor (cursor??) to where we wanted to be (well, we "hoped" we were "there", anyway, since we could not "see" what button or drop-down dialog box was selected or highlighted).

It's almost as if I had a "Resolution" problem, whereby the resolution is set too low (say, 800 x 600), things are too big to be seen/won't FIT on the page. However, my resolution is set to the "Recommended" 1366 x 768.

Please help...this Netbook would be a WHOLE LOT easier to throw against a wall than my desktops ever were . . .

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

Type dpi into the Search box and choose "Make text smaller or larger" at the top of the search result list. In the window that opens see what it is set to. You want it at 100% rather than 125% or 150%. So if higher than 100% change it back to 100%. Hit Apply. You will need to reboot. See if that helps.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
If you cannot seem to login to an infected user account, try using a different user... Read more

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Answer:BSOD - "Memory management", "Bad pool header", "ntoskrnl.exe"

Are you over-clocking? Is the bios set to its defaults? Is the SSD set on a SATA 3 port in AHCI mode?

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Answer:Changing the "minimize" "maximize" and "close" buttons of a theme

Use Windows Style Builder to do that...

I was poking around in the "Windows Media Player" folder on my Windows 2000 PC (just before deleting it, to see if there was anything interesting), and I noticed a file called npwmsdrm.dll. the "MS DRM" part caught my eye, so I opened it up and found this:

1 VERSIONINFO
FILEVERSION 4,1,0,3917
PRODUCTVERSION 4,1,0,3917
FILEOS 0x40004
FILETYPE 0x2
{
BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
{
BLOCK "040904E4"
{
VALUE "CompanyName", "Microsoft Corporation"
VALUE "FileDescription", "Windows Multimedia Services DRM Store Plug-In"
VALUE "FileVersion", "4.1.00.3917"
VALUE "InternalName", "NPWMSDrm.dll"
VALUE "LegalCopyright", "Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp. 1992-1999"
VALUE "OriginalFilename", "NPWMSDrm.dll"
VALUE "ProductName", "Microsoft® Windows Media Services"
VALUE "ProductVersion", "4.1.00.3917"
VALUE "FileExtents", "dnp"
VALUE "FileOpenName", "DRM File (*.dnp)"
VALUE "MIMEType", "application/x-drm"
}
}

BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
{
VALUE "Translation", 0x0409 0x04E4
}
}
Is this what I think it is? And if not, what is that mime type ("application/x-drm")? I can't find any information on it whatsoever (not that I"m surprised). This is very strange

Ever since upgrading to Windows 8.1 I haven't been able to change my update settings. The drop-down is greyed out and can't be clicked on. Above the drop down it says "Some settings are managed by your system administrator"

I've deleted my user account and created a new one, but the problem remains. I've unlocked the Administrator account, but even through that account the settings can't be changed. I'm not in a homegroup, as I've heard this could solve the problem and I've disconnected and reconnected my Microsoft account to my User Account to no avail.

Please help, Windows keeps updating and I don't have the bandwidth to continue this way.

I think there are threads on this subject. Haven't been able to find any one that solves my problem.

Answer:Can't Change Update Settings "Some settings are managed.."

Hello C, and welcome to Eight Forums.

This sounds like a group policy has been set to prevent access to those settings. As you found out, this would be a global setting applied to all user accounts (new and old).

Please post a screenshot showing your Windows Update settings to help narrow down which policy it may be since there are a few for Windows Update.
