Windows 7 to RTM within 12 months !?

Question: Windows 7 to RTM within 12 months !?

Microsoft has let the cat out of the bag a week early and stated "there is not another WinHEC planned before Windows 7 is released."
As the WinHEC conference is an annual affair, providing the conference isn't cancelled next year then this would put Windows 7 on target for a RTM before November next year.
The revelation follows comments from ASUS CEO Jerry Shen discussing the future of the ASUS Eee PC in an interview with Laptop Mag. "I think in the future in the second half of next year we will put Windows 7 on Eee PCs" said Shen.
If all of this is true and Microsoft is on target with Windows 7 then recent rumours of a Beta 1 in December would not be far off.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 to RTM within 12 months !?

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.)

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.

Battery returned to Lenovo, tested and a new battery sent out (old one apparently kaput). I thought the problem was solved until a few days ago when... Battery starts discharging again for no reason I can see. Laptop eventually went into hibernation. Unplugged charger, plugged back in, switched on then powered up the laptop and the battery started charging. This sequence of events was repeated 3 times in 1 week, until yesterday when powering up the laptop failed. Took the battery out and tried laptop on charger only. Nothing. Put battery back in and tried to power up - then noticed battery indicator gave 3 orange flashes 1 second apart before stopping. Did the battery discharge thing (pressing in the power button etc.). Still nothing. The unit seems to have failed completely. Can someone tell my what I might be dealing with here - a failed motherboard? Yet again I'm going to have to send this laptop back for repair, and it's been nothing short of a nightmare because I rely on it to do work. I've never experienced something like this before with a purchased laptop and I suspect the original battery problem was caused by a fault inside the laptop. As the machine is still within warranty can I request a new machine or a full refund because I simply don't want to use something which may be inherently unstable? Looking at the views ...

The battery in my first gen S10 died after about 7 months. Fortunately, I was still well within my warranty so Lenovo held up their end and replaced it. However, after about 8 months that second battery too no longer holds a charge and my original warranty has since expired. Phone support reiterated as much and denied any help.  This leads me to ask, shouldn't the second battery carry with it a full one year warranty? How can Lenovo not stand by a battery that dies in less than a year? This seems like more than just bad luck and has me questioning whether I will purchase another Lenovo product in the future.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Seriously i do not want this operating system on my laptop it has totally screwed up the laptop its constantly crashing every time it wakes up from sleep and is super glitchy just working within the OS. So can someone please help i do not care what i have to do i have backed up all my stuff. I just want it off. Thanks

Answer:Uninstall windows 10 after having it for 6 months

I have done two clean installs does that mean you have the DVD for your previous op sys? (Windows 7 or 8.1?)
You could buy a new harddrive and install your previous op sys on that.
It could just be that you haven't got the Windows 10 drivers for the hardware, or when you did a clean install of previous op sys you didn't download the drivers for that either.
A few more details would help, what was your previous op sys and what dvds do you have? and what is the make and model of your laptop and did you get the drivers needed?

Just recently, my super fast notebook struggles to do anything. It fails to load any pages in a browser before it shows 'not responding' and / or crashes the browser completely.  I've uninstalled the Chrome browser and tried again and the same thing happens. The same behaviour in the Edge browser where I also cleared all the data. I recently installed Adobe Photoshop and wondered if that could be the problem so I went to the control panel to uninstall it.... but the control panel freezes and so far I've been unable to uninstall it. I'm now having to use a work laptop for personal use as the notebook which was purchased in January is simply useless, slow and freezes a lot when trying to do tasks that it recently used to zip through with ease. Can anyone help?

Is said to prolong the life...Some suggest remove the battery if running on mains power; as that too will lengthen battery life as battery will hold charge for a while and then it naturally decay...I have an elderly/olde Acer Aspire (2005 at least) with the original battery still OK... It has been removed for periods of time - when it appeared to have charging problems; it wouldn't charge up properly.

Is anyone else excited for some of the upcoming changes?

Are you already running the preview version or waiting until the final version so you don't have to reinstall once it ships? I personally am waiting until it ships as I already deal with entirely too many OS's day in and day out. Win 2k3, 2k8, 2012, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8...no more Vista machines. Hopefully no more XP machines soon as well.

Which features are you most excited about? As someone who does a lot of web development the rewritten developer tools in Internet Explorer look promising (I have a preview version on a Windows 7 VM)
 

Answer:Less than 2 months til Windows 8.1 release day

Been playing with the 9471 release since it came out and there is a lot that's changed in 8.1. As much as people say Microsoft hasn't listened with 8 they really did with 8.1. Short of Metro off, and I do understand that's all a lot of folks care about, just about every other major issue that I know of in 8 was addressed in some fashion in 8.1. Booting to the desktop, some configurability in the hot corners, better Modern app multitasking and support for multiple monitors, better in the box training, better UI cues and guidelines for them, overall much improved in the box Modern apps particularly the Mail and Music clients (though the Photos app lost Facebook and Flikr integration which seems stupid) and the Start Screen is significantly improved with much better manageability and better keyboard and mouse operation though context menuing still needs to be improved.

It's a pretty big step in the right direction but it's not enough to appease the hardcore desktop folks but I do think it will be better accepted by consumers, particularly if next gen Windows 8 tablets are what I'm hoping for. Bay Trail tablets should be a big boost forward in performance and capability, and hopefully the pricing will be there, that's really got to improve.

OK, I have exactly 2 days of working with Windows 10, but, after all these years of Windows and studying the OS, I feel I have earned the right to believe that I can see where MS has gone with 10 after this short time. BTW, I have never even booted a W8 PC, and all of my PCs are basically W7 Pro 64, other than a couple of XP Pro machines. I don't feel like I am biased, considering the upgrade is free, but here is what I would like to say:

All respect to all other opinions, but I have an opinion that is framed a little bit unusually. This is that I believe MS absolutely has accomplished one thing with W10. It is fully granny-proofed. I don't think granny will have a single complaint. IMO, this is a nice thing in a very important sense.

This looks 100% to me like a call to get out there and get mother and granny hooked up. It's Windows the granny edition, and I do like that aspect of the upgrade option.

This said, I would also like to say that I don't see the difference between this and Windows 7 under the wrapper, and I confess I don't know why MS would force anyone to upgrade who has W7. I really feel MS should add 5+ years to support for W7 for the sake of business machine owners who work on their PCs. Give IT time to learn everything there is to learn about W7 in corporate environments and give the OS a chance to pass the test of time. I think W7 can win and even with MS charging for it on new PCs. Make the W10 thing an option.

The page fault refers to a particular block its address in Hex form.

Download a copy of memtest and burn the ISO to CDROM. You need to boot from the CD and give your memory a thorough test.

I'd also make sure that you are not overclocking your memory or system, as its 6 months old, you may still have warrantry. Sometimes memory errors can be cleared by removing and re-inserting memory modules.

I'm fairly technical, but I'm at a complete loss. This all started back on July 2012 super Tuesday where all the updates downloaded and failed to install.  With each successive month of released updates, the list of failed gets longer and longer, the only exception being that the MSSE updates seem to go through with no problem.I've googled the heck out of the error code, but none of the fixes I found worked. I've tried the built-in updates troubleshooter, but it lies to me, tells me it fixed the issues, but the updates fail all the same.

I'm on 8.1 and have been avoiding updating ever since the huge Windows 10 controversy over privacy and telemetry and all that ****. But I think now, for the sake of security, I should probably think about installing some of the dozens, if not hundreds of updates, I've been ignoring. I'm gonna list all of them here. Could somebody please tell me which of them are safe to install and which might sneak Windows 10 onto my system?

On second thoughts, I won't LIST them ALL. I'll describe them. Quicker. I've got a security update for Silverlight, a definition update for Windows Defender, a cumulative security update for Internet Explorer 11, a whole bunch of security updates for Adobe Flash Player, Microsoft .NET Framework, and Windows, a whole bunch of non-security updates for Windows, and the latest version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. Which of all of these updates are OK and which should I hide?

(I wonder if Windows falls under the definition of malicious software.)
 

Answer:Haven't Updated Windows In Months

All Windows Defender Definitions should be updated as soon as you get them. You can do that by opening Windows Defender and clicking on Update.
As for Windows 10 updates you are trying to avoid look here http://forums.majorgeeks.com/index.php?threads/windows-10-trying-to-force-upgrade.295938/

I wonder if anyone can help me. I've tried every other help solution, including online HP help and Microsoft help. HP support here in Indonesia said it would take up to 14 days to fix and I can't afford to lose my PC for that length of time,I have an HP laptop, model HP 14-R018BTU that came with Windows 8.1.The problem is that I upgraded to Windows 10 and now do not have wifi. I realize that this is a common problem, but as I said, HP online support were not able to solve it, and neither were Microsoft online support.It was so bad that I did a "factory reset" to Windows 8.1. But the wifi still did not work and I lost all my files and settings.Please note:- All my Apple products work fine on my wifi network- Sometimes the wifi is fine on the laptop, but when I restart it, it doesn't work (I have unchecked the power management option)- Ethernet Internet connection works fine on the laptop when connected to my modem/router but my Ethernet socket is coming loose now and this worries me: that I'll have no Internet connection whatsoever soon- I am using the following driver for the Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn wifi adapter:Driver provider: Media TekDriver date: 6/13/2014Driver version: 5.0.48.0I have also tried this driver but it did not work:Driver provider: Media TekDriver date: 5/18/2015Driver version: 5.0.57.0 And this one: Driver provider: Media TekDriver date: 8/11/2014Driver version: 5.0.50.0I have also tried the following fi...

Answer:No reliable wifi on Windows 10 for six months now

Hi Well I was OK with thinking it was Windows 10 related, then you say it is also intermittent with Windows 8.X after a Factory Fresh install. So it could be faulty hardware.

Whenever The Windos XP starts, it has been asking for about 2 months to download one and the same update, I think it's number is KB 67...0415 or something. After the down load is complete it does not require a restart even though I restarted on my own but each day I start windows after previous day shutdown it still wants to download what looks like the same update. Is there aproblem with my Windows XP?

Hello there.
I recently changed my settings for Windows Update, to let it check for updates, but now it always asks for a restart.
I tried almost every solution, i don't know what to do, i need SP1 for SQL Server 2012 to work, but it's not installing. I even downloaded the update from microsoft's website, but the installer fails.
I tried almost every method i found :
- setting it to never update, then setting it back to automatic
- deleting the registry keys from the Update-er
- deleting the files in SoftwareDistribution
- trying FixIt (normal and aggressive mode)
- trying the FixIt method manually
- renaming the edb.log file in the SoftwareDistribution folder via safe-mode.

I can't give you an error number, since it doesn't show one. It just asks for a restart, but nothing happens. I really need this fixed...

I have XPpro SP2.

I have no idea what causes this but the whole boot seems to screw up in exact the same manner at roughly the exact same time causing me to go through the whole process again and again.

I do a fresh install. Thing srun fine for few months then I begin to get anomalous reboots on startup. This will happen once or twice then it becomes every single time I boot up. It gets to the splash screen then I hear that little click inside the computer indicating it's reset itself. After the 1st reset it seems fine for the rest of the day.

It will go on like this for a while before completely conking out. At some point it will usually stop booting up at all and give me various error messages saying the system files are corrupt. The only solution I've found so far is to nuke it and do a fresh install on new partition. As I havn't reached 'critical' stage yet I couldn't tell you the precise error messages it gives me once it fails to boot as I'm still in the reboot phase.

It baffles me why it happens in such a routine fashion at the same time and in the same way.

Also I forgot how to do it but how do you reinstall windows again over the top of your current one without losing your settings? I think with my version it won't let me do it cos the repair function doesn't work within windows which is why I always have to do a fresh one.

This is a short history of my OS activity. I upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 8.1 sometime early last year that went very well (never used 8.0). At the end of the year I upgraded to Windows 10 and that also went very well. Two weeks ago I saw a notice at the bottom right of my screen asking me to activate windows by going to the settings, however I have been unable to activate windows. I made several attempts to correct this without success. I used SFC and the Dism tools, none of them helped. Finally I used the MGADiag tool but the copy command fails with this message "failed to create output files, hr= 0x80070002. Please contact support.

Hello Guys,

Just thought I'd let you know that after my unsuccessful Window 8.1 update on the first day of release I have tried it again this week and this time it has gone really smoothly and I'm very impressed with it.

When I originally installed it it made my computer really slow and several previously installed programs had stopped working so I put a image of pre 8.0 install back on to my computer.

The only problem I have which is very small is that I have set a key on my mouse to show the desktop (minimise all windows), on Win 8 it would minimise everything and the 8GadgetPack sidebar would still be displayed, in 8.1 the sidebar is also minimised which is a little annoying. If I use the minimise all windows shortcut on keyboard (win key+M) it will do what I want but I can't set the button on my mouse to do that.

Also the second problem which I hope will be fixed with a gadget update is the Network gadget doesn't work and any new gadgets I add do not work, I think this is something to do with dpi scaling but I can wait for it to be rectified.
So all those of you who had trouble with the 8.1 upgrade, it might be worth another look at it.

Thanks

Tony

My local PC shop says you should reinstall windows & format hard drive EVERY 2 MONTHS!! I say this is completely ridiculous as by the time you have put everything back in place - not to mention all the updates for your anti-virus - spyware and adware programmes, it's time to start again!! Surely you should try a repair first etc..

Microsoft launches Windows 7 three months early and slashes price in war against Google Chrome

Add to My Stories

Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 7 has gone on sale in the UK almost three months ahead of schedule at massively reduces prices, it has emerged.
The software officially goes on sale to the general public on October 22, but Microsoft has released it early with prices starting from ?49.99 for Windows Premium.
Early buyers will be able to snap up Windows 7 for a limited pre-sale period and will save up to ?100 for the Premium package alone.

Microsoft announced early sales of its Windows 7 operating system, just days after Google announced it was releasing a rival product

Those who purchase Windows 7 Professional will pay ?99.99 instead of ?189.99.

A spokesperson for the company has said stocks are limited for the sale which runs from today until August 9.
But all UK versions of Windows 7 will not come with Internet Explorer, which means buyers must install a web browser to upgrade their computer's operating system.
Microsoft is currently in an ongoing legal battle with the EU which said that automatically installing Internet Explorer was anti-competitive to other browsers.
All sales of Microsoft 7 will be based on a first come first served basis, according to The Telegraph.

The early release comes just days after Google announced it would be launching... Read more

Answer:Microsoft launches Windows 7 three months early

Wow is this guy there living under a rock or something, it has nothing to do with google's announcement the preorder sale was planed for july 15 in the uk long before google announced anything. On top of that nothing is being released early, you are only pre-ordering you will not receive windows 7 until Oct 22 same as everyone else.

Have you checked for any system updates recently? Hanging graphics tend toward video graphics drivers being clobbered by MS updates. Also, check to see if screen saver is set to revert to Welcome screen. That worked for me on some machines.

I can't access the features from start menu (so can't launch apps, and can't turn off laptop normally.Half of the icons on my toolbar are missing.Using search function only searches the web (i.e. can't search for documents and stuff like control panel :/).Can't open some apps (e.g. any Microsoft Office apps, like PowerPoint- which is really inconvenient).

The list goes on and on, I have been using Windows 10 for around 2 months now, so I really have no clue as to why this problem occurred or how to fix it.

Answer:Windows xp screws up like clockwork after every 3 months after reinstall

Hi,

To do a fresh install over the top - as a multi boot, you install as normal and you should have the option to "Leave system intact (no changes)"
...Or create a new partition in the setup menu.

Is the version of Windows XP SP2 a legit windows CD or did you use a SP1 disk to create the SP2 disc?

If it happens every few month like clockwork, it doesnt seem to me that it has anything to do with hardware, otherwise it would happen everytime, fresh install or not. Does it do the same thing when no USB devices are connected, could it be a software update for one of your USB devices that comes after a couple months from install? Have you tried installing SP3 straight after installing SP2? Give these a try and let me know if you have already or the results :-)

Another possible options is to try file recovery software such as R-Studio or Photorec to recover some of your original files but there is no guarantee that will work.At this time there is no fix tool and Decryption of any CryptoWall Files...is impossible since there is no way to retrieve the private key that can be used to decrypt your files without paying the ransom. The only other alternative is to save your data as is and wait for possible updates...meaning, what seems like an impossibility at the moment (decryption of your data) there is always hope someday there may be a breakthrough or possible solution so save the encrypted data and wait until that time.There are also ongoing discussions in these topics:CryptoWall - new variant of CryptoDefense Support & DiscussionCryptoWall 3.0 Support & DiscussionRather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in ...

Answer:Regular BSOD suddenly after using Windows 10 for multiple months

Only one of the dumps indicates a possible cause, all the rest show ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE.

I see a BIOS update for FUJITSU LIFEBOOK E544 on the Fujitsu web site. Try updating the BIOS.

No Windows 10 specific drivers though.

I do see a lot of Windows 8.1 drivers. Try installing the Intel wireless driver from the web site since the one dump indicated a problem with Netwbw02.sys which is part of the Intel wireless driver. If no help install the Chipset driver.

If still no help, give Driver Verifier a try.

Tried installing some of the networking software that isn't with the standard install.

Once while installing a screensaver.

Once after I tried to reboot after installing an update to OS.

We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in Drivers - Windows 7 Forums instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Answer:Hdd failed after 5 months, lost factory windows image, what do i do?

Hello mate, If the HDD broke after 5 month is still under warranty and Lenovo will replace it. Otherwise did you create the recovery discs ?If not you'll have to buy them from Lenovo.

Bought this laptop a few months ago from a coworker who i cant get in touch with to help with the problem im having. I do not have the OEM Vista key because the COA sticker is damaged and I didnt receive any of the packaging or paperwork from either the laptop or the 7 upgrade when i purchased the computer. After an update windows said it wasnt genuine. I have run sfc \ scannow and windows found a few corrupt files but succesfully repaired them. still having validation issues. Is there anything i can do besides contact HP for an OEM vista restore disk or purchasing a new Product Key for windows?

Hello,
Here is the problem I was having before for reference:

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...v4-laptop.html

I don't know if this problem and the previous are related, so started a new thread. After re-installing the OS everything worked fine until a few weeks ago. So flawless for about 2 months. Very intermittent BSOD has become more frequent, just as before. Attached is my zip file for examination. Let me know if any further information is required. Thanks for your help!

Answer:BSOD starts 2 months after clean re-install of Windows 7 on HP Laptop

Hello there!

Since the reinstall of Windows if it still BSOD'ed then it could be Hardware. Run Hardware Diagnostic (RAM and hard Drive) Hardware Diagnostic | Captain Debugger

Check for BIOS update. It's pretty out-dated.

Windows 10 calendar does not hold appointments past July. They just disappear after I push save.

So I've been through the whole ordeal with Microsoft's "support" department, both through the Office 365 Admin Portal and the answers.microsoft.com team (who was, believe it or not, actually more competent).  Four months ago, first full week in January, my company's Office 365 OneDrive for Business system stopped syncing. 40 users, spread across a dozen states. Most employees are on Charter for Internet service but not all; I've determined it's NOT something like a Charter-specific issue.  On January 10, something changed where older documents would still sync but any documents modified on or after that date would not sync to any computer anymore, and changes made on the computer in Windows Explorer would not upload or sync.  (Changes made through Microsoft Office 2016 applications and saved using built-in Office methods still sync.)
 
We had been in the preview program for the Next Gen sync client since maybe November, so this was not a case of having the old Groove client made defunct and just failing to get on board with the new. We were already in the next gen program ahead of time.
 
Even to this day, OneDrive for Business libraries are out of sync, with all computers stuck on a status like "Downloading 153.9 KB of 402.5 MB at 0.0 KB/s, 1288 files remaining".  (Funny thing is I've moved on to another product for the time being and at present only have 1 Word and 1 Excel document in my OneDrive for Business folder at tenant-my.sharepoint.com!...

If I make an appointment more than six months out (ex., doctor appointment) the reference on the calendar app immediately disappears. But it will get logged in my Google calendar immediately where it will stay, and eventually show up on my phone. But it is annoying that I can't see those appointments on my phone as I am trying to schedule things as far out as September. It wasn't like this before the last major phone 8.1 update. Will this bug get resolved?

Answer:Why doesn't the Windows Phone 8.1 calendar app show appointments more than six months out?

Hi,

After reading a few posts about this issue and trying to fix it, it seems it hasn't resolved.

I have read a lot of NoelDP's comments, so would love one of your 'easy fix' replies rather than the one or two 'reinstall!' replies.

I loaded up my computer yesterday and it showed me barebones non-Aero desktop with none of my icons, etc. The sound was not working. Failed to connect to windows service errors were showing in the taskbar.

I restarted and it seemed to work fine.

After a while my a message in the taskbar told me my windows was not genuine.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, I have started my computer up again this morning and it's showing from the start that it's not genuine.

I have entered my Key in to SLUI.exe 4, and it seems to have activated for now. The results below are from AFTER this activation and that means the computer is looking quite fine right now. I will restart and post another MGADiag if it comes up as not genuine again.

Anyway, I think this is what you need. The MGADiag.exe results:

Dear Sir / Madam, Two problems with updating to windows 8 from windows 7 - Lenovo Thinkpad E320 1. Is there anyone who knows when Lenovo is going to release video driver (Windows 8) for switchable HD 6630 and Intel HD3000. Windows 7 drivers do not work on windows 8. Windows 8 just installs seperate Intel and AMD drivers which do not switch. I am stuck with lower performance intel HD3000 graphics as the default regardless of battery or mains power.  If someone knows working way to use switchable graphics on Windows 8 pls help! Tried (http://leshcatlabs.net/  and is not great (creates more problems). I rather have official driver from Lenovo. My laptop was brought direct from Lenovo website a couple of months ago thus one would expect drivers to be made available. 2. No Bluetooth icon anywhere (device manager / control panel etc) so Bluetooth software (wins 8 broadcom) will not install as it thinks laptop does not have Bluetooth hardware (after update from wins 7 to wins 8). Can not turn bluetooth on, as option does not appear in wins 8 PC settings - wireless (setting page). There is no Lenovo bluetooth software/drivers for my Edge E320 machine running Windows 8. Can someone from Lenovo get this sorted or at least give a answer Regards Stuart

Answer:No Bluetooth or switchable graphics in windows 8 for E320 - Months on now and not sorted

Same problem with Switchable Graphics with E420s, LENOVO HELP.

I bought a Toshiba Satelite that was having trouble connecting online. It kept saying that the IP was invalid, or the DNS could not be found...Eventually, I checked the system event logs. There were THOUSANDS of entries made in March 2014 and October 2014. I didn't purchase it until Dec 2014?????? Mostly, they were audits to the security and system files. They created a remote access local user account and manipulated everything I could access. Staples has replaced the laptop, (costing me an additional $85.00, on top of the $350.00 already paid initially, for a problem that I didn't cause. And they allowed me to keep the corrupted hard drive. Now, how do I find out WHO did this and how to prevent it from happening to others?

Answer:Windows 8.1 hijacked by a remote user, 9 months PRIOR to sale.....

I should also mention that the pre-installed norton account was manipulated, along with the "Free-Trial" office pack.They both had files that showed corruption and I didn't download either of them!!! They came with something already attached. And when Staples scanned for "Viruses", NOTHING showed up! So, once the remote user was able to implant themselves in my Windows registry files, they became "Trusted" and were able to bypass ALL of the anti-virus or malware software I ran, (And Staples..) because they "piggy-backed" themselves onto legitimate file entries through adding extensions those files. I have never heard of such a thing and I'm wondering if anyone else has heard of this or known of this happening??? I can't be the only one, and until thousands of people are victimized, this doesn't count as a significant problem. I'd like to spare others of this level of violation, if I can....Please help me understand what I can do to prevent this type of problem later. I'm burnt out and defeated by this issue, only because I didn't even know this was a "thing". I expected to open a box and find a brand new, "fresh off the lot" computer. And, instead, I ended up with some "borrowed" product, with ZERO traceability, and a "Maybe" we can get you something close to what you actually wanted......I walked out with a Windows 7 without even realizing until I got it home and turned it on!!!! And they wanted to charge me an ADDITIONAL $137.00!!!!! Why??? So, the manager knocked it down t... Read more

This error still pops up after a few weeks of the machine being reimaged. At this point, I do not know what to do. I Googled on line for answers and some stated it may be hardware related. RAM, Hard Drive, Motherboard? Unfortunately, our T60s didn't come with a restore disk and I am not able to access the system partition with the original shipped image on it. Any suggestions for troubleshooting? It is not happening to any other T60 users with the same exact model and configuration. We are running Windows XP Pro SP2 with all the latest updates.

Hi,

This is my first post...

I bought a PC from a website years ago, Cube24/7, in a bit of a rush. The website in retrospect was a bit dodgy, and based on other reviews of the site, I am lucky I got something for my money at all!

It was stated to have Windows 7 on it - which turned out to be not true. After spending my cash on a PC, I then did not want to fork out for an OS (as it did not have a default one) so, alas, I used a copy of a friend?s.

It worked fine initially, but then I was greeted with the familiar message to many of ?This copy of windows is not genuine?. At first I thought I would just ignore it, but eventually went down the route of getting a product key online. This worked fine for a while, but then required me to do it every couple of weeks...

NOW this has finally caught up with me, and I cannot access my user accounts. It comes up with an error message relating to user profiles being unavailable. I have tried many things, such as going on as a guest (which works fine) and doing a system clock back or system restore, but when it asks for the administrator?s password, I get the same error relating to user accounts.

Ultimately, I am looking for any way to restore the system so that I can access my user accounts, as I now do not really want to buy Windows 7 for the PC, if the error still occurs.

Any help would be appreciated and just contact me for queries.

Thanks

Isaac

So I used the Get Windows 10 app on another computer back in May or June to reserve a copy for my personal computer. However, when I open the get windows 10 app on my personal computer to sync the reservation, it doesn't provide me any option to say "i already reserved it just on a different computer and I have 3 emails from Windows to proove it!" Short of forcing the download/update, am I resigned to being in the back of the line because I didn't reserve it on my computer?

Answer:Reserved Windows 10 on another computer months ago for my computer...??

well, you have to wait, I don't know why. but if you don't want to wait, just download the mediacreationtool, get your version of windows 10, put it on USB or DVD whatever you want. then open it on Windows 7/8 and tell it you want to upgrade and keep the files and apps if you want.
The setup will download drivers and take the time it has to take if it has to, it took like 45 minutes on a laptop and it took like 10 minutes on my desktop. so it depends on how it has to prepare your computer for the update.
You could also try to open Command Prompt as an admin, and type: wuauclt.exe /updatenow
That way some people have forced windows 10 to update through Windows Update, you could try it as well if you want to have Windows 10 now. if it fails I guess the first paragraph would be a better and faster option and you can keep it if you want to clean install it later when you activate Windows 10 with free offer upgrading from 7/8 to 10.

Ok I have a small medical transcription company, we were recently forced to move our servers from where they were housed and setup our own, I was scared and leary of this but we went with QWEST, as the local cable company for the area we housed our servers didnt have static ips, QWEST does.

Our setup consists of a DVI server, an FTP server, an email server, and 2 computers used as dns controllers, along with our Sonicwall firewall.

So we set everything up, call up our name registar to point to the new IPs etc, everything was fine about 24 hours later as everything was working well, most everyone was reset back up except for 3 transcriptionists.

Well these 3 people cannot connect period, they cannot ping (times out) we did trace routes, stops at my reserved gateway, and doesnt go through to the IP.

Through troubleshooting we have found one common factor, all 3 that cannot connect/ping etc have Comcast cable for an isp and all 3 have ips starting with a 24, so they all have 24.x.x.x ips etc.

I should also note that I also have Comcast for an isp but my IP starts with a 66 and I can connect fine.

I called Comcast and was originally told it was previous internet abuse issue, yet the tech support at Comcast is of the basic level, I try to explain the issue to them and they want me to reboot the modem and computer, try using ftp program, etc. the issue isnt connectivity to the internet, its to my servers, like I mentioned earlier they cannot ping or trace route or...

Question: 6 Months Later...

Ok, so here's on my ongoing struggle...

Bought a bunch of new supplies back in february: Asus A8N-SLI Premium Mobo, AMD 3800 x2 CPU, 2 GB Corsair PC3200, Nvidia XFX 6800 XT, 480 W Aurora Power Supply, WD 74G Raptor SATA, and such....

Installing Windows XP, everything goes fine through the formatting, and the non graphical setup. Once it gets to the graphical setup...It's lags on the 39 Min remaining screen...and sits there with no progress for about a minute, before turning off my machine automatically. When i took it to a repair center...they had no issues installing it. Peculiar. This morning, I got a system error, and had to reinstall windows. Same issues I was having earlier with the turn offs. I'm wondering if it could be the power supply or APC unit. It's an old 300W apc, and might not be able to handle the power. I've tried a new vid card, had the mobo RMA'd, New ram, the works....yet nothing.

Any suggestions? (Not paying another $175 to have a repair center install windows :X)

Thanks in Advance.

Question: down for months

This computer got a virus several months ago. It redirects the browser and doesn't allow me to do a lot of things, so I got frustrated back then and stuck it in the closet. I fired it up this morning, deleted a bunch of programs, and decided to give it another try. Here's the DDS Log:

Answer:down for months

I know, being patient is one of the rules, so I apologize in advance. Maybe the title I chose, "down for months" gives the impression that I'm not too interested in resolving this issue - I don't know. I am very interested in getting help with this. I realize this is free voluntary help, and I appreciate that. I noticed that I've had 28 or 29 views, but no one has replied. I'm honestly not trying to seem impatient. Just curious that's all. I have no idea what's wrong with this computer, or how to read that DDS log. My concern is that, since there have been 29 views, I'm assuming those who do know how to read that log have looked at it and decided not to get involved, for whatever reason. If someone who reads the log and doesn't want to help could just leave me a reply saying, "You're screwed - your computer is now an anchor" that would be very much appreciated also.

Thanks again and sorry if I seem impatient. I'm not . . . much

Site looks great... But, when you put in OT at work and have a new born at home it's hard to visit your favorite forum.... I had a quicky for the group to help solve - a 3 parter.

1st part - create a user form to display xml data - what is the vba code to display an xml node in a user form text box.

2nd part - create a macro that when run captures the hilighted words in the current PPT slide then displays it in the VBA userform textbox.

3rd part - on the same userform create a button and code that when clicked will add the text from the "selected text" field then add it to the XML doc.

i have a pc i bought 5 months ago .. intel celeron 2.4 (256 cache) bus 533 .. 512 DDR Spectek 2 chips (256 each) bus 400 .. MSI mainboard 865PE neo2 up to 3.2 .. VGA MSI FX5200 128 MB .. i want to know how to overclock it or make it faster !! plz help me (i have the mainboard software "corecenter" i think it overclocked it from 2.4 to 2.8 when i chose "ddr 400" from the OS menu but im not sure if thats true or not .. also when i did that the sound in my computer is suddenly gone i dont know why)

Answer:i have a pc i bought 5 months ago ..

you can overclock the video card using a program called Rivatuner - can be found at www.guru3d.com

you can do the following tweaks:

disable unnecessary services in "services.msc" (type that in start, run) - some of them you do need

disable startup items in "msconfig" (type that in start, run)

disable system restore

disable the XP theme and extra animations

disable "automatically search for network folders and printers" in My Computer > tools > folder options > view
that speeds up browsing files

if you raised the FSB to 200 (DDR400), then you have overclocked it.
the FSB and the multiplier make the CPU speed. if your CPU is at 2.8GHZ now with a FSB of 200 (DDR400), its multiplier is 14, because 14 x 200 = 2800MHZ.
normally you can't change the multiplier, but you can change the FSB.

Hi,

Been meaning to write a note here for perhaps some tips and suggestions on what to do to get my 8.0 upgraded successfully to 8.1.

Months ago I was very excited to upgrade as I read of all the great improvements and now there is a note on line that 8.1 will get more upgrades in April.

So I got the banner across my desktop asking me if I wanted to upgrade so eventually I gave in and allowed the process to happen. I was very excited until the final reboot and well... I booted into a very grave mess.

I had NO background image, black screen. No task bar, no icons, only "a cursor in the dark" as I like to call it. Yea, I actually had a cursor I could move around and click but I couldn't "see" what I was clicking on. So upon trying what I could I called up Microsoft and after a while they asked permission to take over my machine and after 4 HOURS we both gave in and I had to do a full reinstall. At least the newer Windows saves all the older stuff in a Windows.old folder so not all was lost but enough to know I didn't want to go through that again.

Apparently the video drivers became corrupt along with Windows Explorer (that's what the MS tech was able to figure out). She was just as amazed as I was.

Anyway, I've laid off the upgrade again in hopes I could get here and ask what it was I should do before trying again? My video drivers are all up to date (as they were the day all that happened). The only thing I had running was the scrip... Read more

Answer:Tried and failed with 8.1 months ago

Have had mixed results with 8.1 here, had to revert to 8 on some laptops, am postponing any more upgrade until some time after 8.1.1 is out and has been discussed\reviewed.

But in all circumstances, IMO move nr1 in any upgrade process is to 1st do some good imaging (easeus here for xp\w7, macrium for w8).

Well, one month if you're just looking at the replacement....  original laptop was purchased in February and received in March; had issues with the fan and digitizer so had it replaced end of march. Got replacement April 6th, and two issues above are no longer a concern as the fan is reasonably quiet (barely hear it when in power saver mode, which is what I'm in most of the time), and no issues to date with the touch screen, so overall, I'm pleased.  things I really do like about the laptop: - form factor; I like the flexibility to flip the screen.- back lit keyboard...very useful at night in dark rooms...- USB port doubling as an AC port...not sure why this was never thought of earlier....- 1080p screen...I'm glad they didn't come with a higher resolution as I believe that it's currently a sweet spot for battery performance, and icon scalability within windows apps...- really like the feel of the touch pad....and this is from someone that usually hates touch pads...it works well and mimics touchscreen behaviours well, albeit that one bug that doesn't activate dual touch for context menus without messing with your registry manually...- Battery capacity & battery life; I believe the battery was supposed to be rated at 44Wh, but out of the box, both devices I had were being detected as 46Wh, and were both being charged to over 50Wh....on power saver, I can usually get 7-9hrs of life, depending on what I'm doing, although I got one rep...

Answer:Yoga 3 14 - 2 months in...

Just an ammendment to the above; after some more research and playing with the system, it would seem that it isn't thermal throttling, but TDP throttling due to surpassing the wattage limit 15watts that's killing performance...  The sad part of it is that it really isn't needed as the system could handle it fine, and you can see it for the 30-45 seconds that it allows turbo to run past the 15 watt limit, where it reaches 18-20watts easily underload, and temps are staying within reasonable  (usually mid  70's to low 80's)  Now, I understand the reasoning for limiting to 15watts, while running on battery power; totally understandable... But when plugged in, I want all the potential power available to to me when I need/want it, and what makes it worse, is that the system as is teases that it can handle it, before dropping down to a lower power state. Not only that, but the TDP is not just turning off turbo, but dropping the speed of the processor below its advertised speeds to satisfy the 15watt limit.  As I know this is not a set in stone value mandated by Intel, and that each manufacturer can set their own TDP limits, I'd like to see either a) raise the TDP levels to something more reasonable (19-20watts), and let thermal throttling take care of overheating if it happens to be the case (really no sense having two throttling methods when plugged to the wall), or b) unlock the TDP settings to let entheusiasts to set their own TDP limit via...

I have a simple 8 GB USB storage drive (dane-elec, looks just like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41tMIDsGrAL._AA260_.jpg) and have been using it for a long time now. Today I lent it to my friend so he could give me some little game he wanted to share. He put the file on the drive then gave it back to me, and the trouble started. When I put the drive in my computer it said "USB Drive Not Recognized."
I am unable to work around this no matter what I try. My computer is XP and my friend's is 7. I have tried it on both of these and two other XP computers, same error on all of them. All of these I know work using other USB devices, so it is this driver that's the problem. I have tried everything I can think of. The computer's troubleshooting was where I started. I have tried re-enabling it and have uninstalled the driver, though now it is not letting me reinstall, as it doesn't recognize it as what it is in the first place.
After all of this, it is still messed up. I am guessing whatever file my friend gave me got corrupted somehow, but I have never heard of a corrupted file causing this. I know this wasn't his fault, at least purposely. I have looked all over the net, wasting 2 hours trying to find a solution. I hope someone here has one.

Question: 3 months of BSOD,

Hello everyone, I have looked around everywhere to try to sort my problems out but I've had no luck. Now I've decided to bite the bullet and ask for help. I had a computer built about 3 months ago. Everything was fine at first, then I started to get BSOD.

Hi guys,
Yesterday I finally, after doing a lot of reading about this imaging, decided to go for it, with this macrium reflect.
But as soon as I opened the program (macrium) it offered me to create some disk (recovery disk?) which I accepted of course.
When it came to insert the CD which I did, this message popped up that the CD has to be erasable. It was a CD-R
Now I wonder, since it will be my first imaging (I should take a complete one) if one CD will be enough and what kind of CD should it be. A CD-RW??
Will this OS partition (Windows 7 professional) with a couple of programs installed, fit on a CD?? Should n't I use a DVD instead?? Maybe a couple of DVD's?? If so should it be DVD-RW
If it matters, my ODD is a DVD burner blue ray.
Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Macrium isn't going to image your HDD to the CD, it wants to create a one time recovery disc, that you can use to boot to, to run Macrium should you not be able to enter the windows environment, or prefer to boot from the disc to recover from a saved image. This is just creating a boot disc that will allow you to boot from the CD to run Macrium should you need to/desire. Go ahead and burn the disc, and boot from it to see how it works. You can then use Macrium to make an image of your hard drive. This will be on a 2nd HDD, internal or external, preferably. Backing up to CD's or DVD's would take many discs, and it... Read more
