Move Quick Launch From Right Side To Left Side Of Taskbar

Question: Move Quick Launch From Right Side To Left Side Of Taskbar

After I reinstalled Windows XP Home on a P4 2.4 G computer and checked Quick Launch in Taskbar & Start Menu Properties, I double clicked the Quick Launch divider in error, and Quick Launch displayed on the second row of the Taskbar. I was finally able to get Quick Launch on a single row of the Taskbar. However, it is now on the right side of the Taskbar, and I have not been able to move it to the traditional left side. While it does not create an operational problem, I am accustomed to Quick Launch being on the left. Quick Launch is not locked. How can I get it back to the left side of the Taskbar, with open programs showing on the right?

Right click taskbar and make sure it is unlocked. You should then be able to drag the edges to put it wherever you want. Best to lock it afterwards.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

When I insert a flash drive into one of the dead ports, initially the message pops up indicating that the computer recognizes something has been inserted into the port, but then it immediately disappears and the port is dead. I went to Device Manger-->Portable Devices and tried to fix one of the three dead ports. At some point (after I scanned for hardware changes, I think) it did show the drive letter, but it had a yellow triangular error-message  indicator. I right-clicked and selected Properties, and it said "This device cannot start (code 10)." Then the drive letter disappeared, though it has come back sporadically. I hope this is clear. Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks. Jane Doe

Hi,
I recently bought my Dell XPS 9560. My dell xps screen appears cooler on the left side and slightly warmer on the right side. It is not noticeable in any color but when I visit websites with a white background like google, I can notice that the right side is slightly warmer (yellowish) which is distracting. Any idea on how should I proceed with the issue?
Thanks

Answer:Dell XPS 9560 Screen - left side cooler and right side warmer

If "recently" is less than 21 days from shipment and from Dell directly, the best option is to contact customer support and have the system replaced.
If it's more than 21 days from shipment, the warranty will cover the display replacement, which is the only solution -- though if the system is new enough, you're better off having it replaced than repaired.

There are other discussions here about icons that move by themselves. Maybe the additional details I provide will help point to a solution.

I have 64-bit Windows 8.1 Update 1.

I divide my desktop icons into two groups. One group of icons is on the left side of my monitor and the other group is on the right side of my monitor. From time to time, some of my desktop icons on the right side move to the left side.

I have noticed the following:

* When I open a file to edit it - say, a Word document or a Notepad file - when I close the file, its icon sometimes moves from the right side of my monitor to the left side.

* Other times, file icons move by themselves without my doing anything to them. An icon that used to be on the right side is now on the left side. This seems to happen 'out of the blue' without any pattern.

* Icons move from the right side to the left side, but never from the left side to the right side.

* Only icons for Microsoft software are affected: MS Office, Windows utilities (Notepad, Wordpad) and desktop shortcuts.

* It seems that Windows 8.1 defaults to placing newly created icons on the left side of the monitor. For example: If I open MS Word, create a document, then save it, the file icon is always created on the left side of the monitor.

This may sound crazy, but judging from the above it seems that something is replacing Microsoft file icons with new, identical file icons which then move to the left side of the monitor because that's where all new ... Read more

Answer:Icons Like to Move to the Left Side of the Desktop

A solution would be to install a program like DesktopOK which remembers icon positions and will restore them when you want top. I use it on 8.1 and now 10.

I'm wondering if it's caused by something you are running, on purpose or by default. You could try doing a Clean Boot and see what happens:

Hi,
Having a multi-monitor system here I'm finding it overly difficult to bring up the charm bar on the right edge of my primary monitor, it would be substantially easier if I could move it to the left side of my screen and move the new task bar that appears on the left side of my screen over to the right side of my screen (since I personally use it less).

Is there a way to do this, or maybe a way to just have both on the left side of the screen?

I know that I can press the Win+C keys to bring up the charm bar but I'm really not much of a hot key user.

only1/2 screen to right on toshiba pc have to shrink page to read I need page to move to the left to get full screen how do I fix this

Answer:only half screen right side how can I move left ?

Try tapping F8 at start up to access advanced boot options. Try booting to Safe Mode, if safe mode works normally (full screen) then perform a system restore to a date before the problem began (launch it from safe mode). If safe mode works normally but system restore does not help, try downloading up to date drivers and installing them from safe mode.If safe mode still uses only half of the screen, try booting into BIOS set up (see your online manual for the access key at boot up). If BIOS set up also shows half screen, then your problem is hardware related and is either your monitor or graphics card/chip/chipset. If a laptop, try an external monitor, if a desktop, try a different monitor and even a different monitor cable. Post your results and detailed system specs for more detailed response and more suggestions.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hi Deecent, welcome to the Eight Forums.

As far as I know you can move all other Taskbar elements but not the notification area (clock is part of notification area). It will be located at right when Taskbar is located bottom or top of the display, and at bottom when Taskbar is located left or right.

Here's my desktop, Taskbar at left. This will place the notification area at left bottom corner but not as you'd like to have it:

Is there a way without installing third party software to allow a task bar docked on the side of the screen (left or right) to be smaller. Note, using small icons like what works on the top and bottom does not change the with of the task bar on the side.
One thing I noticed is that the with stops at the end of the date displayed. Is there a way to maybe turn off the display of the date to make icons very small on the side.

I may just live with it for a while, but if there is any third party software, as a last resort maybe when it finally gets to me I'll have to.

Answer:Taskbar on Left Side issue

Just turn off the clock/date in the tray, and then you can resize the bar to the width of a single icon if you wish.

The minimum width is the size of one contiguous entry in the bar.

The clock is a system notification which you can just turn on or off.

To resize the bar, right click on it, uncheck "Lock The Taskbar", and you can then adjust the width, as you would a normal window.

On several systems I have noticed that some software and various themes lock the taskbar width. If that is so in your case you may need to try a different theme. Sorry, but I have no idea which work and which don't.

Bar dragged small; Bar dragged larger;

Hi,
Is there a way to somehow pin running programs to the right side of the taskbar? I have a couple of programs that are always running but which I rarely have to open. Currently I have them placed to the far left-side of the taskbar, but I would like to have them pinned to the right. But, I don't want all programs moved over to the right side of the taskbar, the ones I do use I would like to keep on the left side.
I was thinking about a way to somehow split the taskbar in two, but I'm not sure whether this is possible to do or not.

So I recently acquired a Vista and found out (through some heavy usage of Google) that it was an extremely annoying issue some users were facing. I figured out how to over-come this error quite simply.

-Tutorial-
This is a tutorial on how to fix "side by side configuration" errors when launching programs from Vista. SBS configuration error is basically when a program refers to something that it can't find in C++. This is caused by corrupted C++ libraries, or non-existent libraries. The following tutorial shows you how to remove all C++ libraries and update to the current version on your computer.

1. Click on the start button, choose "Control Panel"
2. Navigate down to "Programs>Uninstall a program" (in classic view it's labeled "Programs and Features")
3. Navigate down to "Microsoft Visual C++ 20## Redistributable" ## = 05, 08, 10, or 12.
4. Uninstall all of them.
5. In the following steps choose # 32. for 32-bit systems and # 64. for 64-bit systems. Click on the links, download and install them in order one at a time. Delete the installers after use, all of the installers are named the same thing so they will just append (vcredist.exe, vcredist (1).exe, vcredist (2).exe) making it difficult to keep track of which you have installed. <b>To determine your os version</b>, open the start menu. Right click on computer and choose "Properties". In the "System" section, look for "S... Read more

Currently when moving the taskbar to the left side, the thinnest you can make it is to have 2 system icons side by side on the bottom. I'm trying to get the taskbar to have show only 1 system icon. I've discovered through trial and error a way to have this happen but it isn't a permanent fix.

Here are the steps:
1.) Make the taskbar as thin as it will go normally.
2.) Lock the taskbar, turn on auto-hide, and turn on small icons
3.) Open up a full screen game. (I've only had it work with War3-Frozen Throne and Starcraft. Didn't work with CS:S)
4.) Close the game and the bar should be thin.

What is normally there:

I hope I was clear enough for someone to find a solution.

Answer:Making the Taskbar Thinner on the Left Side

Hello AznSanta.

It seems like a bug, indeed.

However, since you found a workaround to make it get that thin, maybe you could preserve it. I believe what causes it to refresh is your clock.
As you can see, there is no space for the clock after it's thinned, so it's stuffed and garbled.

Try disabling the clock or setting it to show less data, e.g. no date.
You can turn clock on or off under customize notification area - turn icons on or off link at the bottom.

However, it stills seems like a bug because even without any clock , the taskbar doesn't get thinner. I just thought it might stay like this after your "trick" if it doesn't show any clock.

Try that and let us know.

Cheers

How does one make the task bar on the left side of the screen smaller? Selecting the edge and dragging works fine. However, it does not allow reducing it to the typical 1/4 inch size that WinXP allows. Yes, the icons are a small size.

Note that along the bottom, it can be reduced to the 1/4 inch size.

Hi, I have a CTL 17" LCD monitor. This morning I turned on my pc and found that the left side of my monitor is darker than the right side. Any idea as to what the problem could possibly be?
 

Answer:My monitor is brighter on the right side than on the left side

I don't know which orientation the tubes have, but if it is vertical, the tubes on the left may be on their way out. Most LCD monitors unless specifically advertised otherwise (ie - LED) use fluorescent tubes for the backlight.

So, I'd say it is on its way out and there is nothing you can do to fix it short of just replacing it. The left side may brighten to normal after being on several minutes/hours. Did you notice if that happened the longer you had it on?

Hello,

I have a strange problem. I recently had to move my graphics card from one slot to another on my motherboard. When I did so, my desktop appeared to be shifted over to the left and that the left most part of the desktop would not display. I tried to use my TV controls to shift the display horizontally and when I did I encountered two issues- 1) the display would not adjust flush with the right side of the screen (would not reach it leaving a slim black bar) and 2) it looked like someone sliced off the left most part of my desktop (the part missing was a width so that about half the start/ windows button was missing).

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling CCC (latest update/drivers) for my ATI Raedon HD 46xx series card with no luck (Doing a registry sweep between to be thorough). I also have updated everything else windows with no luck.

My desktop is fine @50hz by the way, but 60hz is problematic.

And here is the whammy!

I took a screenshot of my desktop to send to a friend so he could see the left part cut off by a black bar and when I pasted it, the whole screen is there in the pic!!

So I assume this means that windows thinks it is displaying the screen but it is not making it to my TV?

I would have given up on this, however, it was working before so I know that it is possible.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated as I am starting to pull my hair out over here! :-)

So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of this noise

Answer:White noise on left speakers/left side of headphone

Sounds like either a driver malfunction or more likely a failing sound card. Most of the stuff below (Windows & Programs) wouldn't likely be causing problems. I'd be willing to bet it's a hardware problem (due to it only being one side).

Figure Out What's FailingIf you're using a secondary sound card
*** i.e. you have a second built in one on your motherboard, enable that.
If you still hear the sound on a different card, then it's something within Windows and not a problem w/ hardware.
If you don't hear the sound, then it's something w/ drivers or your hardware.
If you don't have an extra sound card, see if you can find/buy one Replace DriversDownload & Install a Program like Guru's Driver Sweeper
Uninstall your sound drivers w/ Driver Sweeper
Reboot
Download and install the latest drivers for your sound card.
RebootIf the sound is still there and you couldn't test a secondary card you're likely dealing with either a hardware failure (most likely with sound only happening in one speaker) or something in Windows failing.

G'day everyone - I suspect this issue will be a tough one to get help with!

I've attached a screen-capture of a Microsoft Office Excel 2007 spreadsheet I'm working on at the moment. As you will be able to see on the screen-capture, I've marked the areas of interest and will explain here...

When I enter a name in this column (marked as '1'), I want the spreadsheet to check another column (marked as '2') to see if there is a match. If there is a match, I then want the spreadsheet to check the column marked as '3', and subtract that amount from the column marked as '4'. If there is no match between the column marked as '1' and the column marked as '2', I don't want anything to happen.

I hope that made sense, and if anyone can help me with a solution here, I would greatly appreciate it.

So recently, I received a blue screen of death. The error was something along the lines of:
page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

When it restarted, windows advised me to perform a system file check. So I left my computer for a bit, and when I came back it was already at the logon screen. However, when I logged on and started firefox, first thing I noticed was that all my bookmarks and some extensions had been wiped.
I then tried to start Microsoft Word but I received the following error:

&quot;The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect&quot;;

I receive that error for most of my other programs.

When I tried to run event viewer, it says:

&quot;MMC could not create the snap-in&quot;

Please help. Is it possible to restore my applications without reinstalling them all?

I bought a Dell Inspiron 5545. From the first day I lifted the screen of the laptop, there was a click from the right side where the hinge of the screen meets the base of the laptop. I just assumed this was something internally that kept the screen in the open position because there are so many other items click when you open them. However, over the past few weeks a gap started to appear that has become increasingly larger between what appears to be the bottom of the case and the top in that same place where the right hinge is.
C'mon Dell.  It is a design flaw and should be fixed as such.

This morning I came into my office to find my pc (p4, win7) apparently in a loop. the cpu usage was very high on all four processors, and the disk usage was high as well. I tried restarting the computer but there was so much cpu usage that I couldn't even type. So after 10 minutes or so, I just pulled the plug.

The first problem was that Norton Internet Security stopped working. After an hour on 'chat' with Symantec, they reloaded the software for me and now NIS is working properly. But I still have (at least) two probems. (1) My RIMDeviceManager fails with an 0xC015002 error, and all my MSOffice 2007 programs fail with "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect."

I unstalled all the Microsoft C++ programs and then did an MSOffice "repair" and it looks like C++ Redistributable (32 and 64-bit) were re-installed, but Outlook, Excel, etc, still get the same error. Everything I've read about fixing the problem is way over my head (and I'm fairly technical). Does anyone have a clue what I should be tracking down?

So, I had the same problem as above. I had developed a dll using Qt that worked fine on my machine but would not register on another. The familiar "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect..." appears when I ran the depencency walker on the dll.

So this was the solution that worked for me, which may help some others see what's going wrong here:

Within my dll the manifest emedded read:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<dependency>
<dependentAssembly>
<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT" version="8.0.50608.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"></assemblyIdentity>
</dependentAssembly>
</dependency>
</assembly>

It seemed that the assembly definition was not found upon my client computer. So then, from within my original computer's 'Windows\WinSxS' directory, I copied the 'x86_Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT_1f...' directory and it's associated files within the 'Policies' and 'Manifests' directories onto the client computer. Once copied, the dll registrered fine.

Hope this helps...

With the introduction of the new and clever 'Snap' functions, two basic functions for organising the desktop seem to have been lost. I and others have tried asking the MS Community, but are struggling to find the vocabulary needed to ask the question, and are getting only non-answers.
So, I will try here..Questions:Noting that these very basic features have been available in all previous versions and editions of MS Windows:
1. How do I now, in W10, get two desktop app windows (DAWs) to share the desktop equally? This used to be achieved by having two DAWs active, and then selecting 'Show windows side by side'. Now, in W10, selecting 'side by side' results only in a cramped tiling of active windows.
2. How do I now, in W10, get DAWs to 'remember' their last setting of size and position, such that re-opened DAWs will open with the same size and position that they had when last closed?
3. Could someone give a direct answer to these two questions, providing the solutions as steps to be taken in W10 - or, will someone confirm that these features are no longer available, in W10?

Answer:Updated: W10 App Windows: 'Side by Side', & Setting Default Size/Position..

If you drag App1's title bar all the way to the left side of the screen, it'll "snap" to the left. The same for App2; drag the title bar all the way to the right side of the screen for it to "snap" to the right. (This can also be done using the keyboard short cut "Win + left/right arrow")
The old function for right clicking on the task bar and selecting "cascade windows, show side by side, etc" is still there, but now it allows for more open windows, and depends on your screen size.
As far as I can tell, open windows do remember their last position.

I have an Inspiron 5545 running win10.
On opening, the right side hinge on the keyboard section pulled three screws and inserts free, cracked the plastic in the corner where the hinge is located, killed the WiFi, and caused an intermittent vertical line to appear on the screen.
The laptop has never been out of  the house, never dropped, and seldom left my lap when I was home.
It runs, but is held together with aa 1.5" black paper clamp and connects to the home network via a USB WiFi dongle from Wal-Mart..
This is my fourth or fifth laptop and the first to have the case fail.  This is a design failure in my opinion.  Boo on you, Dell.  I've bought a lot of your computers over the years because they worked and did not fall apart with normal use.  This one disappoints.

I have a spreadsheet that has nine columns. Once of these columns (the fourth column) is used for a single character as a method of immediately letting the user know that the row in particular is different to the others. So, there's nothing different about that at all.

What I'd like to be able to do, though, is to have the other eight columns (the three columns before the column mentioned above and the five after) all change their background colour when the single character is entered in the fourth column.

So, if the user inputs data in a new row and leaves the fourth column cell blank, nothing happens. If the user enters the symbol (let's say it's a "#"), then the nine columns will all change their background colour to red.

If anyone can help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

First post...

I am coming to you as a last resort. I built my own PC and installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit OEM edition. Has been working fine for ~2 years.
Now every time I attempt to open a program I get the error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail".

The only progam that is barely working is IE 64 bit edition. I cannot download or run any files.

Microsoft wants 59$ to speak to a technical support representative(What a joke, multibillion dollar company wants extra $ for tech support??...).

Doing a ton of research I have tried various things to remedy this with no avail. System restore did not work. Doing a sfc /scannow in command prompt does not work, it does not even run. Wasted 3 hours of my life doing a thorough checkdisk as well.

The error in the event log is as follows...
Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_microsoft.windows.c..-controls.resources_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.6001.18000_en-us_72e6f33f34dfabb9.manifest" on line 18. Invalid Xml syntax.

So the problem has to do with this manifest file? I really am clueless as to my next move. I can not download and run anything at all.... Can I do a Vista repair installation with my OEM version?

Should I try and get my hands on a cheap upgrade version of Windows 7?

Answer:Error message: "application cannot be opened as side by side configuration is incorrect"

Hi

To be honest I never meet such problem with the operating system but firstly I would recommend trying to repair the OS.

Boot up the notebook and press F8. Then choose option called Repair the Computer.
Now you will see a some options. Here I would recommend choosing the first option called: Startup Repair.
This option automatically fixes problems that are preventing Windows from starting.
But I?m not quite sure if this is good enough to fix your issue with the system.

If this does not help I would recommend reinstalling this Microsoft Works package.

I am trying to fix my friends computer which is having several weird issues. When you login everything appears to be normal but Windows loads to a black screen with a cursor. Ctrl + Alt + Del to task manager and I can run explorer.exe to restore the desktop. However the problem now is once your at the desktop all programs when you try to run them pop up with an application failed to run side-by-side configuration is incorrect. these problems are not apparent when the computer is ran in safe mode, but I can not figure out what to do. I checked the registry HKLM software windows nt logon and explorer.exe is the value.
Malwarebytes when ran in safe mode does not detect anything either.

Was this computer upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If so that may be the cause. You can try doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 to see if that corrects the problem.

By the way, if there's not enough room for the pop-up to open on the set side, it will still open on the other side. So, when that happens, it doesn't mean that the setting isn't working.

Hello and thank you in advance for your help, I am in desperate need!

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure when this problem started as I haven't been on much the last week or so, but I've tried all the trouble shooting I could find but still cannot manage to fix this problem.

When I try to open Word or Excel I get an error message:
"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

Not totally sure what that means, but I have ran an administrative command prompt of sfc/scannow, and all my bad files are fixed (at least that's what it tells me when I try to run it again)

I also read tips where it tells you to go to the Event Viewer to get more details on the side-by-side problem. Well this seems to be having a problem, too. I get an error message saying:
"MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.

I did just get rid of the Scour redirect virus, and I'm 99% sure this was happening while I had that; not sure if it's related, but when I scan (and am doing another just to check) I come up clean.

But if I launch WordPerfect X3 to 2560x1600, then open 2 documents, I run into the above problem, so I have to spend time to resize them every time.

Should WordPerfect X3 automatically memorize the size setting of 2 document?

On quite a few different programs, i'm getting the error message:

"The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail"

I've read so many forums online where people have had a similar issue, but nothing has been helpful. The most common suggestion is related to VisualC++ but when i installed it, I got the same error! I tried running it without saving, then I saved it and tried running it, again the same error.

I've opened the event viewer, theres quite a few 'sidebyside' error messages, but I dont know what to do with any of that information. The first side by side error is this one:

Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls,language="&#x2a;",processorArchitecture="X86",publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df",type="win32",version="6.0.0.0"
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Silverlight\4.0.50524.0\Silverlight.Configuration.exe

I havn't a clue how it started, my computer was fine yesterday, I opened it today to these errors, I tried rebooting but it didnt help.

If any more information is needed, I'll provide what I can.

I downloaded and installed Ubuntu and sectioned off a part of my hard drive for it. I intended to have it set up to run both windows 7 and linux together and let me choose which boot disk I wanted to use at start up. Ubuntu took over and so I read through some forums online. I can now get to the Windows 7 loading screen but it freezes there. I have my install disc and was hoping someone could assist me with getting windows 7 back. I do not care if I loose Ubuntu. I am currently sitting with the Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe from the System Recovery Options Menu with my Windows 7 Disc in the tray. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated (if i can save my HD great if not I can live with that).

Answer:Unable to boot Windows after installing linux to run side by side

You'll need to boot System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair repeatedly.

Make sure the Win7 partition or its 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) is marked Active first: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

If this fails after three separate repair attempts with reboots using DVD or Repair CD, boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to doublecheck which partition is set Active, then click on Win7 HD to highlight it, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, OK, Apply, reboot.

If Win7 doesn't start, boot DVD/Repair CD to run Startup Repair 3 times again.

If these fail, change the Active flag to Win7 partition if it is on SysReserved. Try Rebuild MBR and if necessary Startup Repairs again.

Linux can corrupt Win7 beyond repair so you may need to copy out your files using Win7 disk or Paragon Rescue CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run full Factory Recovery from its partition at boot, or using disks you've made or order, or use the Win7 Install DVD to clean reinstall following these steps: Reinstalling Windows 7

Ok so I am going to go straight into the good stuff.

Essentially I launch Dragon Age and get an error about side by side configuration. I have already done an enormous amount of research on this subject and have found that the problem is usually attributed to the C++ Redistributable from Microsoft.

I tried to remedy this problem 3 different ways (manually working from a system restore point where Dragon Age & Bioshock 2 did not work, but Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty MW2, and the Original Bioshock were still fully functional) this system restore point had the Microsoft 2008 C++ Redistributable installed, and again the games I listed in parenthesis were working fine.

I first uninstalled the 2008 Redistributable and downloaded and installed the 2005 Redistributable, restarted the computer (even though it did not prompt me) and ran into a massive error. Essentially, this install made every game unplayable (all of those I listed above).

Next, I uninstalled the 2005 Redistributable and reinstalled the 2008 without a restart, and tried to launch every game listed above. Of course, I was back to square one, with Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 still giving me the side by side configuration error.

Lastly I tried launching each game through the program 'depends.exe' (using the .exe) to see exactly which dependencies each game required. Of course, both Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 gave me the side by side configuration, telling me that a MSVCP80.dll file could not be found with... Read more

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post on Major Geeks and I would like to say thank you to everyone upfront.

Recently my computer had a BSOD on startup and afterwards I have been getting a lot of error messages that say a program cannot start because it's side by side configuration is incorrect. A different forum had me try things such as sfc /scannow but everything I have tried so far has either failed due to the side by side configuration or has not been able to find a problem. My .net framework is currently down and I can not get it to start up and most of my drivers are also down. I cannot access the internet through a web browser due to the side by side errors; however, my computer does have an internet connection. I also cannot install any new programs or activate AVAST for the same reason.

I followed the instructions from this post http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=139681 and I have attached what I could. Out of the 5 scans listed, only Roguekiller and Hitman Pro worked. Everything else failed due to side by side errors.

Again, Thank you for any help you can provide.

Windows 7, on Toshiba Laptop, all of the recent windows updates have been installed.
I was having issues running the new zynga game on facebook, the ville. I assumed that it was a resource hog and didn?t like the laptop, and it was possible that I didn?t have the most recent installment of Adobe flash, so I upgraded that as well. It still wouldn?t run. So I decided to clean up the hard drive.
I used control panel to uninstall a game that the kids no longer play because it?s now obsolete. I also uninstalled Quickbooks (it wasn?t just quickbooks, it was a bunch of crapware that was installed on the laptop when we purchased it, but since we don?t use quickbook I figured we could get rid of it.) the only reason I bother stating all of this is because I believe in full disclosure. You never know which action caused the issue so it?s best to tell it all. Sorry for the ramble.
I have been noticing that the machine was running slower lately, so that is why I decided to de-clutter the hard drive.
After doing this and rebooting I found that I was unable to run Rockmelt, it came up with the following:

Hey Guys,
I have a problem.   Last night, i was up all night, using my pc. I had quite a few tabs open (using chrome), and every once in a while, the cpu had a lot of Work to do, so the pc would respond more slow. During one of these slows, something different happened. Quite a lot of icons just turned into one of the old school Windows icons, most (if not all) of them being .exe files. I wanted to fix all of this, so I used Bullguard, and after that i wanted to use CCleaner. CCleaner didn't Work. Neither did the other programs. They gave me an error in the lines of:

"This version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) verion of the program."

Also, whenever i shut down my computer, or boot it up, an error pops up from LogonUI.exe:

"Error: C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\windows live\wlidcredprov.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error"

I figured out how to fix this part. I simply installed Windows Live Essentials.
 
And when I open Google Chrome, it just gives me another error. It says that the side by side configuration is incorrect.
I tried uninstalling MyWinlocker but, it is still running in the system tray. I tried looking for a process called mwl.exe, but I can't find it.

I have extensively searched these forums for a solution to my problem but can't find it. I have found some similar problems, but none exactly the same, here is what happened:

I have a Windows7 computer running just fine. I pulled the hard drive out of my old computer and had installed it in the new one and it seems fine. I can access both drives and i all my files are there. The problem i am having is that i can't open any files from my old hard drive if the program they need to open is also on that old hard drive.

For example, my old hard drive has AutoCAD on it, my new hard drive doesn't. When i click on AutoCad i get the annoying "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect" message. This happens with lots of programs, not just AutoCAD. I have MS Office on the old hard drive but when I try to open a word or excel file it won't open. It's like the computer is trying to open files from my old hard drive with applications that are on my new drive. This is a problem because i cant afford to buy 2 copies of autoCAD and 2 copies of MS Office and 2 copies of every program i have.

I feel like there is a simple fix for this but i can't figure this one out.

So my issue is that when I log into my computer it will some times (not all the time) revert from a side by side multi monitor setup to a over under setup. Like if you go into screen resolution settings I will have it set to monitor 1 on the left, and
monitor 2 on the right, then when I lock the computer and then log back in, it will have monitor 1 positioned over the top of monitor 2. 

I'm thinking there is possibly a default that it keeps going back to, but I'm not sure where I would look for that, other than the screen resolution settings. Another possibility for the origin of this problem could be Microsoft User Experience Virtualization
Agent, which we have installed on all our computers here to synchronize the various setting we have connected to our profiles. It looks like UEV might synchronize monitor layout settings, and with that it could be some how defaulting on an over under set up.

Hi

Spanking new A100-PSAANE (on Vista Premium Home Edition) problems:

1) LCD display -
Suddenly the display starts moving sideways as if you are in a merry-go-round and everything is running sideways! When I close the lid and open it again all is well and the display is exactly the same as it was before the problem started!

2) Hitting the scroll bar causes restore -
Quite often hitting the scroll bar causes that window to restore and clicking the same again causes the window to return to maximize.

Anyone knows the solution to these please???

Regarding point 1.) Do you mean the whole display or the single windows??
