Preferred Solution: At last...I can announce the new AVG update!!!!

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.)

Putting new mobo into existing PC, had to buy a AGP graphics card (the other mobo had onboard graphics).Inserted graphics card and powered up PC, but the card doesn't "sign-on", and the monitor reverts to power-saving mode, as though it is getting no signal.The mobo is an ECS K7S5A, and is known to be in working order (had it in my PC until recently), and the new graphics card is an Radeon 9250, which is an 8x AGP. The Mobo doesn't have on-board graphics, so the BIOS should be set correctly to use the AGP slot. The Mobo only supports 4x AGP, but AGp bus speeds are always backwards compatable (so I have read).Any idea what could be the problem

Answer:AGP card won't announce itself

I think the mobo only supports 4 also Volts may differ

Under Accessibility for the Adaptive Keyboard Settings there is an option for Touch Announce that, when on, will show the "key" pressed as part of the On Screen Display (OSD). As handy feature to be sure, the downside is that you are required to "press" require key twice. The first press displays the key on OSD and then a additional/second press is immediately required to then have the key actual activate. Is there anyway to have the Touch Announce on without requiring the two press activation?

OpenX Technologies Inc. (OpenX), the world?s leading independent ad server for Web publishers, today announced it has entered into a partnership with Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) that will allow the companies to cross-market and promote products to their respective publisher bases. Under terms of the multiyear agreement, OpenX becomes a preferred partner to publishers for enterprise ad serving solutions. In addition, OpenX will promote Microsoft?s Content Ads monetization products ? as well as other products that may be developed in the future ? to its existing base of Web publisher customers.
OpenX and Microsoft will each enjoy significant benefits from the partnership. Most notably, Microsoft will have a major distribution channel for its monetization products through OpenX?s community of more than 150,000 Web sites that serve more than 300 billion ads per month. OpenX will, in turn, gain access to a new base of potential customers ? via referrals from Microsoft ? for its enterprise advertising technology and services.
The Content Ads component of the agreement follows a successful trial Microsoft and OpenX began in August 2008, during which OpenX provided invitations to its publishers to test the product. Content Ads matches ads to relevant editorial content, allowing advertisers to increase campaign effectiveness, which can allow publishers to achieve a higher yield on certain types of inventory. As part of the agreement, OpenX will promote Content Ads in two ways.... Read more

According to the latest update Google have launched a new capability in AdSense allowing Google-certified ad networks compete directly within AdSense, which means that advertisers from these third-party networks will be able to compete with AdWords advertisers to show on the Google Content Network.
These new capabilities will automatically be enabled to the Adsense user accounts and a new section is added in Ad Review Center where a user can allow or block specific ad networks or all networks except AdWords.
To ensure the quality of the ads that appear on AdSense publisher websites, Google will certify all participating ad networks for adherence to our standards for user privacy, ad quality, and speed. Some participating ad networks use targeting methods similar to Google’s interest-based advertising to show more relevant ads to users on the sites they visit. These ad networks won’t be permitted to collect data from your site for the purpose of subsequent interest-based advertising, but we’ll allow networks that comply with user privacy guidelines to show ads using these tools. Publishers can opt out of user interest targeting from these ad networks, and Google has changed our requirements for third-party ad serving to reflect this.
Google is currently only accepting ads from Google-certified ad networks in North America and Europe, but this feature will be soon available to ad networks in additional parts of the world.

Hello and Welcome.

A Reminder....

As seen in Post #2 of our sticky topic 'NEW INSTRUCTIONS Read this Before Posting For Malware Removal Help'

Quote:




Why we don't ask you to run ComboFix from the onset

As stated by the author of ComboFix:

ComboFix is a very powerful tool which when improperly used may render your machine to a doorstop.

We first need to verify if there's any rootkits present and how they could affect our tools. DDS & GMER are preliminary scans. We use their logs to map our strategy for attack.

With these logs we can determine the infections present & decide whether to deploy ComboFix




---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please follow our pre-posting process outlined here:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html

After running through all the steps, you shall have a proper set of logs.

Since there is an unsupported upgrade path to Creators Update for the Lumia 830, I'm curious if it's worth it. For those of you who have had experience with it the Creators Update on the Lumia 830, I'd like to consider the following:
1) Which build is more stable?
2) Does the 830 lose any functions such as camera capabilities, Wi-Fi, or other driver related issues?
3) Which build has better battery life?
What else can you think of?
Some have said that the 830 runs faster with the Creators Update. Has that been your experience?
So, the dilemma... stick with a stable known or enjoy the cutting edge.

First issue is that I need to use a specific older driver for my AMD graphics card and windows 10 continues to update the driver automatically and causes my system to crash. I've gone through {Control Panel-Devices & printers}, selected my machine, then right clicked to Device Installation Settings and selected "no, let me choose what to do". This has no effect as windows continues to update the driver daily or anytime I search for updates. Is there a specific port I can block or cmd line to run?

Second issue, on the windows update window, the feature is frozen on Service Pack 1 for MS Office 2013 (KB2850036) 64-bit edition @ 61%. It's been like this for a week. I've restarted the machine several times and seems to do nothing. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?
Thanks!

I am trying to update from Windows 10 OS Build 10586.589 to the Anniversary Update but my computer freezes at 1% progress. I have tried everything I can think of including: Unplugging all extra SATA drives except my main SSD, unplugging my wireless network adapter, unplugging all USB devices (even mouse and keyboard), removing old drivers and updating outdated ones, and installing the update through a USB flash drive. It always gets to the same part and freezes until I shutdown my computer and lose no data.

You can see pictures of the frozen screen here: http://imgur.com/a/PseoH.

Hi. I don't know what has happened but my pc is running strangely recently. For example, I can't install the visual c redistributable (vcredist.exe), or directx 9.0c, and some games don't work which did a while ago - now they crash to the desktop. I haven't got a restore which fixes the problem. It is all a bit strange.
I've got windows 7 64 bit on a Dell vostro - i7 860, 4g ram etc.
I've tried microsoft security essentials, all manner of spyware removers including spyware search & destroy to no avail.
What should be the next step in investigating this?
Thanks for any help!

Answer:can't install visual c redistributable, or directx 9.0c, can't update - security update for visual c++, system update...

Microsoft Windows 7 already has DirectX 11, so installing version 9 will always fail and is useless. It also has VC++ redistributable 2005 and 2008. The latest version which is not included on Windows 7 is VC++ 2010 redistributables which you should install (but very few games are designed in VC++ 2010 today). When games fail, they create a crash report or log. You should go through them and try to find the possible cause. What message do games show when crashing?Check Event Viewer to find the possible cause of crashing of a game.

Hi - Finally made an account here to vent my issues with my XPS13.My machine: dell XPS 13 9350
I have "Dell Update" installed and today it suggested me 1 new update: "SupportAssist Update plugin".Even tho I can't recall having installed "SupportAssist" in the first place.
Can someone please elaborate:- What this "SupportAssist" does? Is it sending data to Dell?- Specifically, what is this "Support UPDATE PLUGIN" and why am I even receiving it?- Can I delete "SupportAssist" and if so : HOW?
Thank you in advance.

Backstory: I finally got around to performing some updates on my X230 that I usually keep on internal LAN running machines.  It has Win 7 Pro SP1 installed and I checked the update for KB2459268 through Lenovo's recommended software update at the time and thought nothing of it when everything installed and updated properly.  Restarting my machine and RDP to a host and everything worked as normal.  Then putting the X230 to sleep and.... the screen went off like normal, the power button did the usual beating light like normal, but the computer did not sleep!  It kept running and worst yet, did not respond whatsoever to ANY keyboard input, ctrl alt del, esc, power button, nothing!!!  I finally had to force shutdown and figured, probably a glitch.  Did the same process again and yep, it seemed to sleep.  Woke it up, tried it again, and sure enough, same issue (no sleep and no response). I kept getting the same issue for the next week so finally I did a clean install with Win 7 SP1 on a wiped drive, ran the lenovo software update with the KB checked, and tried it again.  SAME ISSUE!!!!  Now I was sure it wasnt a driver issue, and probably not hardware (I guess it could be).  So I uninstalled the KB from programs and features yesterday and the 4x times I used it, no issue.  Leads me to think there is something going on with the KB. How to replicate:Install KB.  Log into an RDP server using the X230.  Issue s...

Answer:Windows update KB2459268 from Lenovo Software update broke my X230 on RDP/ sleep I think

The KB2459268 is Microsoft hotfix (not a regular important update) A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft.

This hotfix might receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this hotfix. Uninstall it. It is 5 years old so it might be already resolved by a regular update. Do not install everything Lenovo offers, select individual updates only.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)IMPORTANT!!IMPORTANT!!Friends from Lenovo,Yesterday I did the update to the new version of Windows 10, called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or Windows 10, version 1709, and after the update was done I find out that the hotkey driver, that controls the Fn commands on the keyboard of my Lenovo ThinkPad X220, doesn`t work correctly with this new version of Windows 10. Therefore, I would like to know what can I do to fix this issue, so the hotkey commands work properly again in my notebook, or if it is going to be an update of this file (8jvu43ww.exe) that I could install in my notebook to fix this issue. Could you please tell me what can I do to make the Fn commands work properly with the new update of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) or if it is going to be an update of the hotkeys that is compatible with the new version of Windows 10?I look forward to hear your comments, and I hope you already have an idea, an answer to solve this issue. Yours truly,Cristián Palau

Answer:Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Hotkey Update for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Intel 2nd gen CPU machines are not supported in Windows 10. 3rd gen (X230) is the first one.

Just picked up Vista Ultimate. Full version. Felt like a made a car payment

System is as in signature.

Installed to a second partition (not giving up XP quite yet). Clean install to that partition.

Install went fine.

After first login, Windows installed updates, and restarted.

Windows update showed 3 driver updates for the nVidia chipset. Installed them.

During install, an error bubble flashed up in the system tray. It was really fast, so I only caught a piece of it. Something about "MFT$ File Damaged" or something like that.

System restarted. It ran checkdisk automatically and it repaired what seemed like 1000 files. System rebooted.

That was the last time windows booted. It just self-reboots half-way through startup.

Will not boot up in safe mode. Last configuration no good. Tried to repair installation from the Vista CD. Nothing worked.

Starting over as of right now. Formatted the partition, and installing again.

Anyone else reported this? There is no clue as to which update caused the issue.

I installed that update yesterday without issue.

This update fixes a bug in earlier version where BSOD occurs if managment engine components are deactivated.   But in order to complete the recommended update, user must first uninstall managment engine components, then install new version.   Can someone please explain then why uninstalling the management engine components in order to upgrade won't leave me with BSOD and no way to proceed?   Also, does anyone know how to determine in Windows 8.1 what version of .NET Framework is presently installed?  New version of Intel management engine components required at least version 3.5. Thanks for the help.   

Answer:Avoid BSOD bug -- Lenovo Sys Update says update Intel Management Engine Components

It should be alright. Guessing wildly, but I think by "deactivated" it means deactivated in the BIOS settings. Make a restore point you can restore to just in case it goes bad.Windows 8.1 has at least .NET Framework 3.5 by default.

Answer:Unable to install Windows Update: Update Kernel-mode driver framework

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

Hi all, I am having a frustrating issue at the moment, where my pc is taking 20 minutes to boot - this is primarily because it keeps trying to install several windows updates, gets to 30% after multiple restarts, then fails, and says "recovering original windows installation" and finally boots up. It then presents a list of failed updates. This is below.
These all see to be for Windows version 1709. Can anyone tell me if my issue is possibly because, acording to my system I have version 1703 - and if so, how do I get it to 1709 so i can install these and move on?
Any advice please? This is driving me nuts. The only thing I have found online is recommendations of a full re-install, which i dont want to do, not with hundreds of Gb of games, and all the setup for HOTAS, Oculus and everything to do again, that will always be last resort for me.

I have tried:
Uninstalling BitDefender and trying again. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.Using the Windows Upgrade Assistant.Running updates in Safe Mode.

Everything I have tried has the same result. Any help would be appreciated, as a re-install would take me a couple of days to get everything back to where it is now. Other than these updates the system is perfectly stable and runs well.

Answer:Windows update failing - version 1709 Update - no real error message.

Hey guys. We have an issue on our hands here with a computer. It has similar symptoms to another infected computer, but the fix that I used on that computer did not fix the issues on this computer. Here are the issues reported:

1) The microsoft update website does not work. It instantly goes to "page not found." Every other website works just fine.
2) Random url redirects to advertisement websites.
3) The avast antivirus cannot update, loses connection with server (likely an infection is blocking this update)

The following fixes have been attempted:

1) Numerous runs of malware bytes.
2) Numerous scans with avast and spybot search and destroy.
3) Logging into the recovery console and typing fixmbr.

Hi everyone, my setup - Windows 8.1, Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 with Bluetooth integrated.After installing latest Bluetooth package from Intel (via Lenovo System Update), I lost Bluetooth permanently. - I tried to uninstall the driver update, nothing changed.- I tried to restore via Windows Restore Point (I made a fresh restore point before installing these updates), no success... I have noticed that: - When this happened, the fingerprint reader behaved strange - it didn't light up (with green light) at the Windows start, and Windows was asking me for a password instead of fingerprint.- In device manager. Bluetooth category disappeared (I was there before the upgrade - for sure.). but I saw a new unrecognized device which name ended with something like "(Device Enumeration failed)" - this could propably be the Bluetooth card.- The tray icon for Bluetooth disappeared.- The Bluetooth submenu of the System and Devices option in Windows Settings disappeared (and it was there before). - Searching for Bluetooth in Windows 8.1 setting (with Win + W hotkey) athough returned "Configure Bluetooth Devices" or similar, but when I clicked it, it couldn't navigate to that option - just took me to the main settings screen. I had to do a system restore using Linux (fortunately made a full HD image backup of both HDD and SSD drives using Clonezilla - that was the only way to repair this actually - instead of full reinstall of Windows). The only driver that ...

Thinkpad E560, Windows 7. Windows Update's "Important" tab lists "Intel Corporation driver update for Intel HD Graphics 520" (published 12/7/2016).  Normally I avoid using Windows Update for driver updates, but this one is in the "Important" tab rather than the usual "Optional."  Yet Lenovo System Update does *not* show anything like this as an available update.  If it was really important, wouldn't Lenovo list it?  Should I install it?

I am at my wits end with this thing. For the past week I have been researching and applying possible fixes to get rid of the problem and make it go away but it proves to be a persistence one. Every time I try to access Windows Update it will redirect me to www.msn.com. In addition, a lot of the anti-spyware/adware I tried to install would not update so I have to do them manually. This included ad-aware, which I asked a friend over messenger to download the most current definition so I can update it manually (I could access the lavasoft website alright, but when I try to download the latest definitions, it redirect me to a different page). I did try to restore my computer to the original manufactured version but it did not solve the problem. I ran Ad-aware and spybot on my computer until they runs clean (both in safe mode and normal mode with restore disabled). I also use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which I must have done over 20 runs >.< Anways, sometimes it comes up clean and sometimes it comes back with the following again:Registry Data Items Infected:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DhcpNameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger) -> Data: 85.255.114.35 85.255.112.79 1.2.3.4 -> No action taken.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{7399b5d5-4309-474a-8d48-ce0fb03498e5}\DhcpNameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger) -> Data: 85.2...

So to test it out, I use one computer to hard-wire to the internet without the router and I was able to access the windows update page without any problems. Whatever someone did to my router, I have to revert it back to the original manufactured version and afterward, everything ran smooth again. All of my virus software, anti-spyware/adware software are able to update without any problems now. Thanks everyone.

Microsoft Announces New Monthly Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Creators Update

Microsoft rolls out new cumulative updates every month on Patch Tuesday, including here not only security fixes targeting vulnerabilities in Windows 10 and installed Microsoft software, but also OS improvements and other tweaks refining the overall experience.

Today, the company announced that it would publish a second cumulative update for businesses running Windows 10 Creators Update, this time including non-security fixes.

Microsoft says that although it wants to release one such cumulative update every month (in addition to the security release on Patch Tuesday), there might be cases when more than a single extra cumulative update is shipped, depending on the bugs that it needs to fix.

These updates will be listed as ?Updates? in WSUS and Configuration Manager, with certain exceptions when critical issues affecting organizations are targeted, so the updates will be flagged as ?Critical Updates.?

Customers who use Windows Update for Business won?t have these updates installed automatically if options to defer quality updates are in place.

You can simply ignore these updates
The software giant explains that Windows 10 users getting these updates will be allowed to deploy them just like the updates that are shipped on Patch Tuesday, but at the same time, be provided with options to deploy each of them only to a subset of devices.

?This enables the organization to ensure that... Read more

It's dej? vu all over again.

The correct behaviour of windows update over a metered connection is to offer the choice to download, or wait until on a non-metered connection.

The initial build of the Anniversary Update broke this, it skipped offering you a choice and went straight to trying to download - which of course stuck at 0% because... well... it's a metered connection! TenForums, and @Slartybart in particular were the only place on the internet that had found this bug, documented it and offered workarounds.
Set Wireless Network as Metered or Non-Metered in Windows 10
(this was in fact the very post that convinced me to register here).

Well, guess what - 15063.0 is broken in exactly the same way. After upgrading my first machine to Creators Update 15063.0 and checking for updates there's no 'Download' button - it just hangs at 0%.

The workarounds were: For Defender updates check for updates in Defender itself. Started from there an update would always be downloaded - even on metered connections. For Cumulative Updates, temporarily turn off metered connections. The stalled update would immediately start downloading. That bug in 1607 wasn't fixed until August 23, 2016 with KB3176934 (OS Build 14393.82).

Turning off metered connections has got me up to 15063.13 now. Until there's a new Defender definition available I won't know if the bug has been fixed (again). OK, there is, and it has.

It's disappointing that MS repeated their mistake of last time, but at least ... Read more

Answer:Windows Update with Metered connection fails: Creators Update 15063.0

Hi Bree,

I just did a clean install using the Insider 15063.0 ISO and my Creator updates are download OK through my metered wifi connection. I am currently on 15063.14 version 1703 (after updates).

However, on one of my rigs, I did encounter a problem where Windows Update was trying to download a driver and it turned out to be a Conexant audio driver. So, what I did was go to the device manager and updated the driver from there. Once done, my updates started to flow. After that, I went through every device and manually checked for updates and I found several PCI components that download updated drivers.

Sorry to hear you are having problems.

Guys the darn-est think happen today, I received a new Lenova ThinkPad W510 lab top from work and were in the process of migrating my data from the old one. I decided to update the system using Thinkvantage Update utility prior to loading any other apps I may require, and the last update in the lists was the BIOS which appears to have installed successfully and rebooted on its own. However after the reboot the system freeze at the BIOS screen for more than 40 mins. I tried pressing the Thinkvantage blue button but noting happen. I then proceeded to manually reboot the machine and now it just light up the power, audio buttons and go blank. The F1 function key does not work, in fact noting works. I check the system online and it has warranty up to 2013-03-16 in the USA but the number listed on the site does not seems to work for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

Answer:ThinkPad W510 Wouldn't Boot After BIOS Update via Thinkvantage Update

Do you have *anything* plugged into the USB ports?  Try starting the computer after unplugging every peripheral attached. If that doesn't work, try unplugging all peripherals and power, and remove the battery.  Then press the power button 10 times in succession, and then press and hold power for 10 seconds.  Then put battery back and power cord, and try booting from there. The number I use for support is 1-800-565-3344, but I'm in Canada, so not certain it's the same for you. Good luck!

Yes, as the header says, on my Vista Ultimate SP2 x64 with Office 2010 (complete), the only update offered by Microsoft Updates was the monthly MSRT. I don't think I've ever seen that happen before.
By contrast my Win 7 Ult SP1 and Windows 8.1 Pro w/MC received approximately 9 updates each give or take a couple, and a friend who still insists XP is the way to go despite my advice got quite a lot of updates too.

I've tried many times to install the latest critical BIOS update, using Lenovo System Update, and every time it attempts to, it fails after telling me in a popup that I need to turn the system off and make sure I have a fully charged battery. I rarely rely on battery power and use AC primarily, and I used Power Manager twice to do a full reset, just in case. I can't believe I would need to buy a new battery in order to install it, because the battery works just fine. I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit), and exhausted every other update or option, unless there's something else I'm not aware of. Is it just the software toying with me?

Since the update, Microsoft is pushing strange Update Packages to me. Before the Update, everything was fine, now the Text says i.e.:
for AMD64 based systems KB4051963

It’s OK, it’s just the way MS have worded the update. It’s fine to download & install.
amd64 based is just meaning that it is x64 based windows instead of x86 (32 bit). AMD owns the IP for 64-bit processes that we all use. Doesn't matter if it is AMD or INTEL .

Sounds normal to me. Since all of your Windows Updates are up to date, there aren't updates to restart to.
Next week the first Tuesday of the month will probably have cumulative updates as well as other updates available sometime during the week and when the computer is ready to download and then install them you should see the option to update and restart shown again.

Okay, recently whenever i visit a page sometimes it will pop up into either a java update page with a smaller box saying to download something and this is the same for the intel driver update page also. But even more recently i have noticed that another popup has started to appear where it would turn the current page into a page saying you have a virus etc. And in the smaller popup box it says you must contact a phone number. Now i am not stupid enough to click anything on them pages or contact any phone number it provides.Another issue is that when i am not in chrome and i click a link to a weblink from something such as skype, it will open up another 4 tabs after the one i need to be on. I have used Malwarebytes, AVG, Combofix, iObit to scan the computer yet i have still got the issue. This is all on Chrome and i am on Windows 7. I have also removed any suspicious programs.
 
Please can somebody help, ASAP!
 
P.S - When i used combofix it easily took over an hour and i have done it 2 times now.

Hallo,nachdem Windows 10 update 1709 geht einiges nicht mehr am X121e.Lenovo Companion App meldet "Lenovo Companion hat einen Fehler festgestellt, Aktualisierung"Wenn man Aktualisierung aufruft wird SystemInterfaceFoundation.exe heruntergeladen.Bei der Installation dauert die Ferigstellen Phase sehr lange und ein Neustart wird gefordert.Beim nächsten Start zeigt Companion die gleiche Nachricht.Msiexec hat mehrer logs in user.AppData.Local.Temp angelegt.Ein Fehler ist aber nicht zu sehen.Die Logs sind leider zu **bleep** und kann man nicht anhängen.Product: Runtime x64 for Power Manager -- Configuration completed successfully.Es gibt noch ein paar andere Probleme am Laptop.Beim Herunterfahren muss man immer zum Abschluss den Netzschalter drücken, weil die Netzlampe anbleibt.Windows scheint wichtige Lenovo driver überschrieben zu haben und ich weiß micht wie man das beheben kann.Hat jemand eine Idee, wie ich weiterkomme?  





X121e, Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500GB , Intel Centrino Advanced N 6250 AGN, Windows 10 Pro
