Lock screen only appears every other time

Question: Lock screen only appears every other time

Anyone else seeing this issue? If I put my tablet into standby when I wake it I don't get the lock screen and it just goes straight to the start screen or whatever app I was using. If I put it into standby again then I'll get the lock screen the next time I wake it but then the next time it won't appear again. I've checked and it's literally every other time.

Preferred Solution: Lock screen only appears every other time

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lock screen only appears every other time

No-one else? I tried doing a refresh and setting up a PIN and it's still doing the same thing here. Not good for device security.

Hello,
First I want to point out that the "Play a slide show on the lock screen" is not the option that I'm looking for, since it remembers the original image that was set for the lock screen after I log back in, or restart the computer.

I am looking for an option that will always load a random picture from a certain folder to appear as my lock screen, every time the lock screen appears.
So for example, I turn on the computer and I see Image #1. I log into my account and after a few minutes I lock the computer. When I lock the computer, I want to see Image #7 as the lock screen. Now I restart the computer. Windows shuts down and starts up again. I am now at the lock screen again. I want to see Image #4. (The reason why those image numbers are like that is because they're random).

So does anyone know of an option in Windows that can do that, or a 3rd party program that can do that?

Thanks so much

hello guys, 
well it started when i tried to lock a file i went like this : 
-Properties 
-General
-Advanced
-Encrypt content to secure data.
a window popped out asking me to create a password but i didn't do so i just canceled the process & unchecked the
Encrypt content to secure data again.
now every time i create a folder or a file or even move it somewhere the lock icon appears again, it doesn't require any password but it's just annoying me. is there anyway to prevent it from showing again ?


thanks & yeah i use windows 10 pro.

Kind of screen glitch that appears before windows 8 lock screen appears at start /restart and a notable delay in starting/restarting time than with my 1st win8 install.

I think this appeared after I installed my windows 7 back ( dont ask me why..)( a clean install) and installed my win8 back again.I dont think Ive done them corectly:

I couldnt install win 7 it in C ,neither to format that partition because of this message [Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks] and an error code 0x0000 smth... while attempting to format the C. I could only manage to instal windows 7 back after deleting all of the partiton and now I have a single C one.

When Ive tried to reinstall windows 8 these days I expected to see only a partiton where to put my windows but instead there were other minor ones too ( they dint shown during my win7 install) like they appear now if I open disk management .

So now I have that glitch when starting windows 8. I dont know how to describe it: its a black screen -with that windows 8 doted loading wheel -partially covering my Motherboard logo screen ( that screen at startup with bios setup, boot menu options etc).I say partially becuase I can see parts of my motherboard screen on left and right but they are kinda shredded and disolved into scraps.

Hi everyone. I just bought a new computer with Windows8. I'm used to XP so this is very new to me, although I think I'm getting the hang of it. Anyway, all of the sudden yesterday the lock screen keeps coming on every few seconds and makes me put in the password to get back to what I was doing. It didn't do this until yesterday, for the previous 5 days since we bought it, everything was fine and I never saw this screen except when I first turned it on. Please help me figure out how to make it stop? It's driving me crazy. I think it started after a windows update but I'm not 100% positive. I know I didn't change a setting, I don't know how to do that yet. Thanks so much.

Hi, I've recently bought Aorus RX 580 8GB XTR, but i have asus vh228d monitor which only have VGA in. And my new gpu doesn't have VGA out so i bought AKASA Display port to vga reduction so i can use my old monitor. Problem is that when boot sequence is happening the monitor is off, it start with the windows, when lock screen appears. I assume when the gpu driver starts. It's really anoying because i want to tweak settings in bios and i can't now. Can i do something to force my gpu showing me boot sequence/bios?

Answer:Monitor starts after lock screen appears

Hi gh0st67. Welcome to the Tenforums @gh0st67

What were you using before the RX 580? Were you using the onboard graphics.

If so I'm wondering if you have to reconnect and disable the onboard and then connect to the new card.

Now I said I'm wondering, I don't want to see you with no graphics so please see if some other members have a suggestion.

Don't panic, you are in the right place. You did nothing wrong. (Btw, Welcome to SevenForums )

We will start by the beginning.
1. What are your system specs? Are those the specs of the laptop?
2. Is the blue screen always happening when doing the same task or is it random?
3. Since when does this problem happens?

Hello there,

I have had a Toshiba A60 satelite for a while. It has been alright up till now, but I get constant blue screens of death, with millions of different stop errors etc, I read around and updated to the latests BIOS, yet still no luck.

I am not sure what to do, it gets the blue screen errors randomly, sometimes the laptop can last an hour or so, then sometimes it goes off quick, please help me ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite A60: blue screen error messages appears all the time

Hi Icesolar

I believe you know that there is no ?magic fix? for BSOD issues. As far as I know it can mostly happen because of preinstalled software. On my unit I have had it just 3 times and always after installing some third part applications.

Have you noticed something similar? Does BSOD started after installing some application? Try to remove latest preinstalled software or roll back the system to earlier time before BSOD starts to appear.

Is there any way to keep the lock screen from shutting me down if I don't do anything on the keyboard for a minute or 2 minutes, or whatever it is? I followed some instructions that I found on the internet that involve adding ".bak" or ".backup" to the lock screen file in "SystemApps" but it didn't have any effect. Then I clicked on "Settings" in the Start menu and got totally lost in all that stuff.

Hello, I like seeing AM/PM on any time value. I already know if it's AM or PM, but it looks more Proper to see the AM or the PM with whatever time it is.

What Registry modification/Program can help me achieve this?

Thanks

Answer:AM/PM For The Time At The Lock Screen

You can change the time format, how time is shown on Windows notification area freely but AM / PM is regardless of your settings never shown in Windows Clock and lock screen if 24 hour clock has been selected.

To change how time is shown on Windows desktop, select Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Region, click Additional settings:



Now change time formats manually typing any of the following values for short time. Add :ss for long time for seconds:

h:mm
12 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

h:mm tt
12 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

hh:mm
12 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

hh:mm tt
12 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

H:mm
24 hour clock, no leading zero, no AM / PM

H:mm tt
24 hour clock, no leading zero, with AM / PM

HH:mm
24 hour clock, with leading zero, no AM / PM

HH:mm tt
24 hour clock, with leading zero, with AM / PM

Here I have selected 24 hour clock with AM / PM, but it's only shown in notification area. Opening clock does not show AM / PM, nor does lock screen, whatever settings I have chosen as long as I am using 24 hour clock:



Using 12 hour clock AM / PM is always shown in Clock and lock screen if selected.

Hello, I used to use a reg file for Windows 8.1 to customize the time until the screen turns off during the Lock Screen Time Out. I want to know if that command still applies for Windows 10.

The reg file command is:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Lock Screen]
"SlideshowDuration"=dword:000493e0
(where the screen turns off after 5 minutes).

I have the formula to figure out what you need to calculate to insert after "dword" for the amount of time until the screen times out (goes black). Ask me for the formula... as long as the above works.

Thanks

Answer:Lock Screen Slideshow Time Out

Never mind. I went into the Registry and checked it out.

Yes, the same exact rules apply here like in Windows 8.1

I recently changed my motherboard to a Gigabyte one. Before the Gigabyte logo appears, there is a black screen standing there for ~30 seconds. I can't find fastboot to skip it either. What should I do? If it matters: 6 GB RAM, 4GHz AMD A series, AMD Radeon R7 240 4GB DDR3. How to fix this?

Answer:Long time waiting till Gigabyte motherboard logo appears on screen

Start with a 'bench test' of your motherboard. strip it down to the bare minimum thugs to let it boot. Use the built in VGA monitor port, it it has one. No GPA card. No RAM but one stick. No printer, no CD-rom no HDD. No keyboard, no mouse. It should boot quicker and get the 'no keyboard' error.After that, start adding things. Also, try the default settings in BIOS. Does the board have the right time and date?

So, I have searched the internet for what I am trying to find but the only thing that comes up is how to add a timer that will turn the display off after a certain time WHILE the lock-screen is on. That's not what I am asking.

What I am asking is if there is a way to auto-lock the computer after a certain amount of time. I know you can activate a screensaver after a certain amount of time, and then once touched again it will show up at the lockscreen. That's not what I want. I have the lock-screen setup to play a slideshow of pictures that I want to play when not in use. (This is a 58" touchscreen display that is used to interact with a powerpoint presentation in a public area). If I leave the desktop screensaver option on, it'll turn off the lockscreen slides. Why does that matter if the slideshow is running you may be asking? Well, I have a script on the desktop of this computer that will lock the computer with a single click. This is because when someone is done doing a presentation, I want them to be able to lock the screen immediately so that when they walk away someone can't just walk by and start messing with a wide-open computer.

So, idk if this is possible or if someone has a better solution but i'd appreciate any input.

I frequently am logging in and out of my Windows 8.1 laptop. I have a good, secure password that I use and because I'm human, sometimes I mistype it. The issue is that on these occasions, I am locked out for a good 30 seconds from attempting to

I can understand the time delay if it were say, my 5th or 6th attempt, but for one attempt this is entirely too long. How do I go about significantly reducing this, or ideally removing it?

Hi,

apologies if this has been covered before somewhere else.
I am trying to remove the time and date from the lock screen. having searched I have seen several customisation options but the only one that actually covered this specifically was to make a change in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

this brought about issues relating to administrator accounts which seem to be a common problem with windows 8.1.
nearly all of the solutions were not available to me but I finally found I could make the change in regedit by changing ownership of the file and changing the format of the time to a space. unfortunately the date is still showing.
how can I remove the date?

further, just to clarify, does the original account I signed in with have full administrator privileges? are they disabled and need to be enabled?
ive seen the tutorial on the built in elevated administrator account, this didn't work on its own either. do some files require a change of ownership to be altered regardless of which account you are signed in with including the administrator account?

any help appreciated

thanks

There are just 4 icons in the bottom right corner (shut down, accesibility, ethernet...) It sometimes manages to get to desktop, and sometimes not.

Answer:Windows 10 stuck at lock screen for a long time

Welcome to the TenForums @Taukonza

Could you please review your update history and see if any updates for Windows or Drivers were installed in last week?

You mentioned when you boot. Not sure if this is happening on restart or power on or both. If it is power on booting can I suggest a quick test. Open a command prompt (admin) and type

powercfg -h off

This will disable hibernation and in turn Fast Startup. Test. If no change you can re-enable by typing

powercfg -h on

After you boot have you reviewed your Event Viewer to see if Windows is kicking out any serious errors to the system log?

Hey guys, I have been having a pretty major dilemma with my computer. So basically:
A few days ago (January 11, 2018), I downloaded the new windows update (forget the name every time ). It was initially working out quite well. Fast forward to like four o' clock, when I leave home for a few hours. I then come back to my computer, awakening it from its sleep, and then the lock screen is utterly broken. It appears as a white screen with red and green (maybe blue too???) lines running to and fro. My cursor as well appeared as a jumbled mess of black pixels. I have been dealing with this dilemma for the past few days (today is January 16 2018 at time of writing), and I have had no luck searching for help. If you have any knowledge of what is happening, or can offer help, then please offer it, that will be wonderful.
EDIT: Oh, forgot to include this, but I have tried a malwarebytes scan (probably at January 12, 2018), but it did not come up with anything important.

Answer:Equium A100-147 - password appears as soon as Toshiba screen appears

Hello,

I think you are speaking about the BIOS password.
This password can be set or removed in BIOS and its kind of protection.
Without knowing this password you will not be able to boot up the Windows system?

Furthermore it?s not possible to remove this password if you don?t know the old password.
Only the ASP (authorized service provider) technician would be able to bypass and to remove such password?

Therefore I see just one solution; get in contact with local ASP and ask for help.

Greets & good luck

My dad's computer is having a problem, can anyone assist?

Compaq Presario, purchased in 2004.

Normally, everthing is fine. But, twice in the past two weeks the computer green "power on" light would start flashing intermittently, but steady (about a one second interval). Then, the monitor would say "No Signal." Could not turn computer off at this point, as the on/off switch did nothing.

By pulling the power chord, and letting the system set for a few minutes...then of course having the system reboot.

This would restore everything back to normal until the "next time."

Thoughts? Thanks much!

Hi Littlewiz,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m really sorry to hear that on screen display is not working properly in your Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch after installing Windows 8.1 64-bit.
 
I would suggest you to install the latest version of Hotkey Features Integration for your machine.
 
Also, download the Power manager driver for your system from the below link and install it.

Please click on "QUICK PATH" enter X1 Carbon and select the exact model depending on the MTM number of your device.
 
Do post back if issue persists even after trying the above steps.

Hi,I am bewildered by this - all of a sudden, at some point during my work today - the caps lock indicator is no longer showing on the screen (which I had it configured to do since there is no light on the keyboard <different rant>). Now I can't remember where I set that! I saw online somewhere that I should go to Control Panel / Display / Screen Resolution (of all the STUPID places) / Advanced Settings / On Screen Display. I have no such tab. I have a tab called Screen Configurations, but all it has is Foreground color, Background color, and Fadeout time, and a check box for Enable on-screen display, which is CHECKED. None of the other tabs have anything related to the caps lock (and num lock) notifications being on the screen. BTW: It also does not even BRIEFLY appear when I hit the caps lock... Anyone know what's going on? It will be really stupid if I have to reboot to fix this! I've made no changes today. Except I had to kill a "maintenance in process" that ground me to a halt - just like yesterday. I have this set to go at 1 AM but for some reason both today and yesterday, it is doing it in the middle of the day while I am actively working on my machine. p.s. I am on windows 8.1

Reinstalled pretty much all of the drivers, no effect.Any ideas? Is this thing already broken?

Can anyone tell me how to eliminate the lock screen preview and bypass the 'Sign In' button on the lock screen?

I often put my computer to sleep then to bring it back (in Windows 7) I would simply hit the space bar and turn on my mouse and it would go straight to my desktop. Now, I hit the space bar turn on my mouse, and it takes me to the lock screen preview then I hit the space bar and it takes me to a lock screen where I have to click 'Sign In' even though I have no password set.

I'm guessing I'll no longer be able to hit the spacebar, turn on my mouse and go directly to the desktop but if I can hit the spacebar, turn on the mouse, then hit the space bar one last time, that would be satisfactory.

Answer:Lock Screen Preview and Lock Screen nuisance

Turns out, the instructions I found to not require a password at the sign in screen did the trick for me.

I've tried searching through the forum but can't see anyone who has a similar issue.

I can access the lock screen settings and I can see all available apps and have set a detailed status app and a couple of less detailed ones. However, when I actually get to the lock screen after having set the apps to appear, there is nothing but the time and date and WiFi in bottom-right corner.

Could this be because I am logging in locally rather than using a MS account?

Lenovo Y720 So, when I hit caps ock or num lock an on screen display tells me whether capslock or num ock has been pushed. While I appreciate it is helpful for some, in my case it become a hinderance. You need to remove "num lock" for single key print screen request, and if I have a short time frame, I am stuck without being able to screenshot until the num lock indicator goes away.  How do I turn off the on screen display.  Now, before you send me to the previously asked questions of similar nature, I have tried. There is no "display settings" in Control Panel. There is no "advanced display settings" on the settings panel. And there is no way to control it through NVIDIA or Intel graphics settings (that I can see).  Thanks kindly.

I figured by doing a clean install it would all magically appear again... I was wrong, I have tweaked everything I could think of looking/trying to change setting from the keyboard in control panel, (including messing around with ease of use) and Gateways so called "support" area was of no help, as well as googling the issue has led me down a path of useless tips, I have also looked on this forum for help.

However there are times when I leave radio streaming through windows media player--it will maintain it's connection but other programs (e.g. firefox or IE) will be unable to connect to the internet.

I access the internet via cable and like I said I never had any problems prior to installing zonealarm...I have searched other forums about zone alarm, I have tweaked all the setting on zonealarm but have been unable to find any solution.

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

In ZoneAlarm,

Select Off for Automatic Lock

If you want the Automatic Lock to remain on:

Click the Custom button

If present, move the selection from: Lock after XX minutes of inactivity
to: Lock when screensaver activates

Or, Adjust the time for inactivity to your preference.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

Answer:BSOD appears all the time!?

Hi,

I've taken a look at your attached dump files. Various different bugchecks, but most are A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. We're not getting a solid driver culprit or anything in the stack trace that I myself can see, but after taking a look at your loaded drivers list:

1. dtsoftbus01.sys is listed, this is the Daemon Tools driver and is a very large causer of BSOD's in W7. I'd recommend uninstalling Daemon Tools and replacing it with another visualization program such as: PowerISO, MagicISO, ImgBurn, etc.

1a. sptd.sys came paired with it which is the SCSI Pass Through Direct Host - Daemon Tools (known issues with Win7). Remove it with this tool:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

2. ASACPI.sys is dated from 2005. The pre-2009 driver is very known to cause BSOD's.. so make sure you update that from Asus' website.

3. ElbyCDFL.sys - Thu Dec 14 16:22:27 2006 (ElbyCDIO Filter Driver). Update if available here. If not, uninstall the software using this driver.

4. hcwPP2.sys - Tue Feb 06 13:30:04 2007 (Huappage WinTV PVR Video Capture). Update if available here. If not, uninstall the software using this driver temporarily for troubleshooting purposes.

You seem to have a virus/malware. The reason the file is "not there" is that it is probably hidden.
To check for Viruses/Malware you have to start a new thread in the Virus/Malware support section.
First you should read the "First Steps" document and gather all the required reports.
If you cannot complete a step, just skip it but be sure to include this information in your post

Ok I've been suffering this issue with Windows 10 for as long as I can remember, and it's stopping me using it as the primary OS.

In short I have two, intermittent issues which nothing I do seems to resolve.

1: After waking up from sleep and typing my username password and hitting return, the screen goes black. Cursor moves, Windows + P operates (Screen options do appear from the right) but doesn't actually make any difference, and I'm stuck having to hard reset because ctrl alt del doesn't work either. This isn't an every time issue, hence googling seems to fail miserably because all the examples are people getting it every time. This, for me, is a 3 in 10 regularity.

2: Logging a user off occasionally sees the lock screen ... locking up. Ironically. Mouse moves, and power button DOES work but that's all that works.

These issues are plaguing me and I just cannot fix them - endless googling has left me empty handed, and I've tried disabling SLI. No help. I've tried disabling apps. No help. Nothing I do makes any difference and event viewer doesn't seem to reveal anything useful either.

2: Logging a user off occasionally sees the lock screen ... locking up. Ironically. Mouse moves, and power button DOES work but that's all that works.

These issues are plaguing me and I just cannot fix them - endless googling has left me empty handed, and I've tried disabling SLI. No help. I've tried disabling apps. No help. Nothing I do makes any difference and event viewer doesn't seem to reveal anything useful either.

Anyone got any idea how I can resolve this?

System is:

132GB SSD OCZ
2TB Seagate HDD
4790K
2x980Ti SLI
32 GB RAM @ 1800 Corsair
Asus Z97-A
Windows 10 & Windows 7 dual boot 64.

Answer:Being absolutely tortured by lock screen lock ups...please help!

Disable Internal PLL Overvoltage. It should be 'Auto' by default. Choose 'Disable' from the dropdown and disable it.

Hi All.

I have a new one installed Lenovo T450s with Windows 10 Entreprise.
I have joined the machine into a domain without some active GPO.
When I'm at home or sitting at a customer and must unlock the screen, it takes a war! It is as if searching for the DNS server for my AD domain as my PC is a member of.
In Windows 7 or Windows 8 there is no problem.
This is not a problem in Windows 7 or Windows 8.
Some have suggestions?

Thank you

Hi

This problem accrued couple of days ago all of a sudden, I was on facebook the site crashed and after that every time I try to load the page I get Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error. I tried to clear cache and browsing data, SSL is on, Proxy is off, firewall is off and facebook is not on the list of restricted sites. All other pages are loading normally. Also strangely yesterday I noticed that my avira is gone, when I go to all programs-avira and try to start it shows that the folder is empty

Any idea about this problem?

Thanx

First let me say I’m not at all computer savvy, so keep that in mind when responding. Two weeks ago I attempted to install an older program onto this new computer. Once installed, I used this older program’s “update” function and I got an error message that I didn’t record. I attempted the installation a couple more times with similar results. Shortly thereafter I noticed two problems:

#1 - In the lower right hand corner of the desktop a message appeared: “Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine.” I ran my virus protection, ESET NOD 32, and it should no problems. I then restored to a time before I attempted the installation of this program and this message has since gone away, so this problem seems to have been resolved.

#2 – However the 2nd problem has persisted where every time I turn off the computer I’m advised it needs to do 1 update and it’s always the same update, (Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64-based Systems (KB954430) - 5.4 MB). When I turn the computer on again it and check for updates it will show this same update again. When I click “install updates” it installs it and I get the message of “Updates successfully installed”, however when I close the screen and again check for updates the same update is waiting to be installed. I tried the “Fix It” feature without success. I'm not getting any err... Read more

Hi People

This morning I opened up my legitimate Yahoo Premium email and I opened my answers in Yahoo Answers which I subscribe to, and what I saw were spam messages. I've had this happen before but not this much. Today it was like 10 messages in a row before I got to a real message.

How can I fix this?

How do I resolve the Socket Error # 11004 that appears every time I boot? It has a tile of Windows Update in the top of the error message. Is there something in the registry or internet connections I can fix?

Answer:Socket Error # 11004 appears every time I boot up

Hi 47DeerePuller and welcome to TSF !

When did the problem start ? Have you installed/uninstalled some program recently ?

Socket error (#11004): Valid name, no data of requested type

Go to the eventviewer : start => run => eventvwr.msc. Search the different sections there for that error (since it happens everytime you boot the computer you should be able to find it by looking at the date and time), double-click it and click on the third button on the right to copy the information then paste it here (right-click => paste). This will tell us which program is trying to access the internet.

That error can also happen if invalid DNS servers are used. If there's some mail client that checks your e-mails on startup then contact your internet or mail service provider or go on their website to know which servers you have to use and how to setup your mail client accordingly.

I have no new hardware device plugged into any USB port.  I did recently add a Belkin enhanced wireless router to create a wireless network to allow my daughter's laptop internet access down the hall.  I also recently borrowed a hand held digital recorder from a friend. I had to download a program to allow me to transfer a file from the recorder to my computer.  I then uninstalled the program - it was a one time usage.  My son got an iPod shuffle which I recently put some music on.  So there have been various new things plugged into the computer, however, every time I start the computer up, it I get the Newfound Hardware Wizard pop-up.  Is there a way to get rid of this?

Answer:Newfound Harware Wizard appears every time computer is started

Check in Device Manager for any Yellow !!'s or ??'s...

I recently tried to install Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 on Windows XP but a problem occurred with the installation so I canceled and postponed it for a while.

The problem now is, every time I open anything on Windows XP (any folder, HDD, C:, D:, recycle bin, control panel, etc.), a dialogue box appears saying: "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
. . ." with a cancel button on the bottom right. I have to press cancel every time and it gets really annoying. Also, I don't want to install Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 anymore. I don't know why that weird thing happens since I'm not opening a Word/MS Office document for it to prompt me to install it.

How do I get rid of that dialogue box?

Whenever I connect a programmme to the internet for example ie6 adaware spybot s&d the error reporting message appears. I can still use the programmes by moving the error box out of the way. I looked at the mod name in the error but it's lists as unknown so I can't see if a particular programme is causing it. I have turned the error reporting tool off but still get a error message just without the reporting tool. If you need any more detail of the error messages just ask as there long. This is a strange one for me hopefully someone will have an idea thaqnks in advance.

Answer:Error Reporting Appears Every Time A Programme Connects To The Internet

Here's something I tried which might give more of a clue I turned the modem off (adsl seimans) and all programmes open ok but when the modem is back on and a programme connects to the internet the error message appears again. When modem is off can reach the router (belkin four port wireless) and modem pages ok. Its seems that only when it does internet connecting theses error messages appear. Strange as before you move them (leave open just repostion out of thew way) and can work like normal. hope that helps.

Hi! So, I've upgraded to Windows 8 RTM this weekend and I'm having this problem: Every time I boot the PC (shutdown or restart), the Num Lock key is off. Since my password uses numbers, and I'm pretty used to type it with Num Lock, I'd like to keep it always on. It was fine on Windows 7. Now, I've searched for it, and there is the "InitialKeyboardIndicators" key on regedit. I have changed values for all of them to "2", and it didn't work. My BIOS say to keep it always on. Is there anything else that I'm missing?

Answer:Num Lock always activated on lock screen

Netplwiz, or tap num lock before starting password entry.

Besides those, you can check to make sure keyboard is plugged in directly to motherboard instead of add-on card or something.

Question: Lock DOWN time...

I have 40 to 50 systems running 2K prof. I'd like to lock them out from being able to surf the net. I figure it can be done several different ways. I'm new with this company, and am just now learning their enviroment.

There are 3 different locations. Each site, has it's own 2K small biz server running.

They have no group policies in effect as well.

Where would you begin, or what would be the easiest solution, all the while providing some scaleability?

Thanks for the help
 

Answer:Lock DOWN time...

Not sure, but I think you might have better luck with this question in the Networking Forum.
