"right click" in mail app not working since update. Any ideas?

Question: "right click" in mail app not working since update. Any ideas?

Hey,

I am a long time user of windows, and a lurker here for a while. I have noticed since the latest update to windows 10 home, I cannot get "right click" menus to come up on my windows mail app. Any ideas how to fix this? I usually use this to mark all my unimportant emails as read. Thanks.

Steve

Preferred Solution: "right click" in mail app not working since update. Any ideas?

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.)

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

Answer:Can't click on "Check for Updates" "Windows Update settings" on Start

Spanker,
.............. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results. .....................

Please clarify what did you mean by "no results".

When sfc /scannow is completed, it will give you one of the following 3 reports....................(paraphrasing)

1. No integrity violation.
2. Found corrupted files and repair is successful.
3. Found corrupted files but unable to repair some of them.

Which one of the above is applicable to you ?

Just wondering if anyone else has the issue of the Mail app opening for about 5-6 seconds and then closing itself ? it stays open long enough to show me a tab saying I now have "Focused inbox" (which i didnt want anyway , I hate unified accounts) but now even clicking on the Ok if I am quick still causes the App to just close.

The Mail Notifications etc are still working.....

My Accounts are still there ...I read another thread where it opens but all accounts are gone....

the People App is also still working unlike some others in another thread too who had to restore their Contacts.

May just need to RollBack to Feb 28th using Macrium but wanted to ask 1st in case I have missed something here.

Thanks,

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

In the past I would do a Reset and the search results were fine but this time I did an install.

Search examples:

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

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

Hello experts !
I love Windows Live Mail but my friends I have a problem: as soon as I click on "Windows Live Mail" from my Start bottom menu, the whole list of all my "Inbox" e-mails appears, without asking me for my password, meaning that everybody using this computer can read everything, I have no privacy at all.
What can I do to solve this annoying problem ? I guess I have to set it up properly but I don't have a clue where to do it.
Thanks in advance for your help, best regards, Antonio.

Answer:Immediately I click "Windows Live Mail" my Inbox appears without asking for my password !

Hi
This seems to be a big issue for Windows Live - somewhere along the line you may have clicked "remember password". I can't see any option to change this at all other than change your password and when it asks whether you want to remember this - say no.

I'm running XPpro - SP2, using IE 6 & Outlook express. When I select a hyperlink that is suppossed to open my OE and allow me to create a message, it freezes up for quite a few minutes and then opens a pile of blank or not-found windows. I've seen an error message that the default mail program is not properly installed a couple of times while I'm busy closing all those windows. I've tried the solutions at microsoft for making sure my default mail program is pointing at oe, including program settings,re-registering oe, & using regedit. If I select the mail icon in IE, everything works the way I expect it to.

Great site, btw. I've enjoyed reviewing quite a few postings. Seems to be a lot of talent here.

Thanks

Answer:OE does not start when I click a hyperlink for "Sends mail to"

Okay are you sure windows is up to date? They might have a OE patch out there that would fix this. If it is then i can only suggest switching to Outlook or Thunderbird. OE has had so many issues that is why it is suggested to use an alternate mail program. I personally have used Outlook 2003 and it is good. But i have found that Thunderbird is much easier to use and Free from Mozilla.

I've had this problem for a long time, where I will right click on a file and try to send to "mail recipient," and what happens is this: if it's an image file, it asks do I want to make the picture smaller. I say fine. Then after the dialog box goes away, the desktop flashes blank for a moment and that's that. For a text file, I right click and get the profile settings; whien I say yeah, that's it, again, the screen flashes and nothing happens after that.

I have checked internet options-programs-mail and Thunderbird is correctly checked. HI cannot send anything to a mail recipient. owever, I use Word Perfect for my main word processing software, and under the "profile settings" is "Word Perfect 8," which I use.

Just fwiw: I also have MS Word 2006 or 2007 on my machine, and I notice that "windows messaging" lists that. Don't know if that has anything to do with anything...

I also have the similar problem that when I go to a web page and try to "send link to email recipient," the same thing happens; that is, nothing.

I really need help with this. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Cannot right click and send anything to "mail recipient"

First of all, though I've never used that SendTo option, I think it is only for IMAP mail servers. You may not have one.

Secondly, if links don't work, either, then you may not have Thunderbird set as your default mail client.

Straight after I downloaded Netlimiter, I got all these problems. First the message "Windows Explorer has stopped working" kept looping but now it has stopped and only comes up when I try and open My Computer etc.

I can't access control panel as the taskbar is gone but when the taskbar was there I couldn't open it anyway as it just closed again.

I can access cmd through task manager.

Safe mode doesn't let me open control panel either.

Does anyone know how to create a new user account through cmd? Maybe this could solve my problem?

I don't think it's a virus as AVG didn't pick anything up and Netlimiter is known to be a good program.

Any help appreciated.

In searching, this is a common complaint, often caused by recent windows updates I might add. Have you tried running the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter?

Troubleshooting

Click on Hardware and sound> Hardware and devices

Or run this Fixit

It's worth a try, although I think it is something within windows rather then the BT or device.

Was this the download you tried?

Hi,
This problem has been frustrating me for some time and I'm wondering if anyone could help me with this. As the title says, I am getting a "windows explorer has stopped working " error when I right click a program. whenever I right-click a folder, it takes very long for it to load. It works fine on other things and I tried to run cmd but I can't run as admin since it won't let me right-click it. So for now I am running registry repairs and hoping it'll come up with something. But I was wondering if anyone else had any input on this.

Do you or anyone else willing to help me, know which registry key I would have to manually delete in order to remove the "Move To" and "Copy To" options from my context-menu?

Please help me solve the problems with my registry. I'm using Windows XP Pro (64-bit Edition). The problems started when I tried opening windows by clicking on folders & files, which are listed on my Start Menu:

Whenever I double-click (or right-click on any folders listed on my Start Menu, and then select "Open" or "Explore") to open files listed on the menu, the "Move To" & "Copy To" windows pop-up.

The "Move To" & "Copy To" windows won't go away, unless I click on "OK" or "Cancel". And now that I have the lastest stable-release of WinRAR installed on my XP, the "Move To" and "Copy To" options aren't listed on my context-menu, anymore. However, I can't open any of the folders I want to access via my Start Menu because my registry is still setup to make the "Move To" and "Copy To" windows appear. And now when I click on "OK" or "Cancel" on each of those windows: none of the folders I wanted to open appear.

Answer:Why do the "Move To" & "Copy To" windows appear when I click on Start Menu?

Hiya, I could use a little help resolving what should be a simple problem. It's really a long story, but to skip to the important part, I'll just recount this little tale:

I wanted to delete some files off of an old external hard drive to make space for some new stuff. It didn't matter, since the files I was deleting had been long since copied to a new drive. However, Vista, in its infinite wisdom, told me I couldn't delete the files, and it was for my own good. I politely said, "okay, Vista! Thanks for keeping me honest!"

But then I muttered, "I already have a mother" under my breath, and proceeded to go behind Vista's back and turn off User Account Control so I could delete the files anyway. Well, I knew that wasn't the best idea, so I immediately turned UAC back on afterwards, but it was too late. Vista caught me, and after the second restart, smote me with a problem I'd seen once before: nearly every program on my computer was said to have been closed after it "encountered a problem" or some nonsense, and when restarted again, the disk checker was run, found numerous problems, and did whatever it had to do to go about fixing them all.

Now I'm not sure what all that was about, because everything seems to be running okay now, save for one minor thing. That little "click" sound you get when navigating windows explorer was nowhere to be heard. I tried another restart and another disk check, b... Read more

Hi, I need to find a fix for this issue I have with a change in Windows 8. I am running Windows 8 Pro and normally (in windows 7 and older) when I Right click on a folder, the default option for properties is "r". Nice and quick and next to my
left hand which rests on the left side of the keyboard. Now it has changed to "o" and not only that, there are 2 options for "o". Open and Properties. Very frustrating and not very easy to get around. Any way of getting around this whether
it be alternative software or reg hack or something... anything. Itsvery annoying.
Cheers

Answer:Right Click on folder and select "R" for Properties has changed to "O"

Well it looks like the US version oif the upgrade iso/cd is the version that has the r has properties. UK version is O which really doesnt make sense as open is O aswell so you have to press it twice then enter. I like my keyboard shortcuts so US version
is. Problem solved. language to install must read US (English) on the install screen.

I'm running windows 7 on a 1 year old PC, and use windows live mail as my mail program of choice. oddly enough, WLM sometimes eats my emails, only showing a portion of them. this is NOT the issue where images are hidden: more often than not, it's the text or body of the email. and they can be from any number of sources; personal emails from regular contacts, or even the generic group messages, like from twitter and facebook.



that's how they look, whether i view them inside the program or double click on them to have their own window. however, the emails come through fine via webmail or my phone, just not in WLM, where the text is hidden.

any ideas...?

if it helps trigger any ideas, this seems to happen to specific addresses (like, all twitter emails, or all emails from my friend karl) instead of just every email.
 

Answer:windows live mail "eats" my emails (not the "hidden images" issue)

Outlook 2003:I'm a massive fan of outlooks Search folders, I receive in excess of 400 emails per day, of which approximately 250 need my attention, even if to reply back and give someone an answer.

A problem I find is that I am so busy with my emails, I often need to clean out my inbox. I do this by setting up basic search folders such as "all emails from my team which are in my inbox only" or "any email sent to me which was part of a distribution list in my inbox only" etc...

This is great for filtering my mail and I would like to create a rule as such:

"All mail within my inbox which has been either replied to forwarded by myself".

I can't seem to find any options and I'm hoping an Outlook guru can help

If you don't know the answer, can you try googling it for me to see if you can find anything, loads of heads are better one...

Thanks in advance

Hi,
I've tried to download video clips recently, to save and send via email.
These are permitted to save clips, not from You Tube etc.
I used to be able to right click and "save as", or "save target as".

The clips now save as an MP4 file, and then act as a link back via internet.
I've tried with FF, IE and Chrome, but all save in the same way, I'm not able to save to my hard drive as before.
I can only save as MP4 or All files, but the result is the same.

Any ideas? Thanks.
 

Answer:Right click and "save as" not working.

from what source are you trying to save the videos from?

I believe you can not download or save video to your computer from streaming browser video. That takes special software or add-on. Only copying the Url or embedded code is possible to share streaming online videos.

Perhaps you had an browser add-on before which is not compatible with newer versions of FF, Chrome, and IE.

Also saving copy right videos to your computer is illegal if this is what you are doing.

I have a 1520, Windows 8.1. Is there a way to send email from my gmail account on my phone using Google's "Send Mail As" Feature??? I seem to remember years ago setting up the Google Sync page, but I've noticed my emails aren't being sent as my other email address.

This is actually a 'sticky', not a request for help. I provide computer tech support to about a dozen families. One of them recently told me that they could no longer send or receive e-mails. Their e-mail client is Windows Live Mail 9 ("WLM9", which is also the version I use). I had encountered the same problem about a week ago (9/21/13) after installing a Win 7 update. After the update, when WLM9 was opened, I would get TWO popup messages saying I was working offline and did I want to go online. Clicked 'yes'. Message repeats. Clicked 'yes' again. WLM9 is still offline, and going to Files and trying to uncheck "Work offline" did not work; it was permanently locked into working offline.

It occurred to me that I had just run a Win 7 update. So I did a system restore back to 9/15 (well before the 9/21 update). Voila! WLM9 then worked online. So I hid the 9/21 "critical" update so it would not show up and would therefore not be installed. WLM9 has continued to work perfectly ever since.

I did essentially the same thing with the Win 7 computer I support, and WLM9 is now working again.

Now, a short explanation: Why am I (and my clients) still using WLM9 instead of updating to WLM12? Two main reasons:

WLM12 has fewer (not more) features than WLM9. One member of the family I mentioned supporting had a stroke and is sight impaired. She needs to create e-mails with a yellow background and an 18-pt. font. WLM12 does not ha... Read more

I am using Outlook 2002 on Windows XP with two users. On both user accounts I select the delivery option to "leave mail on server." This works fine with one user, but it is not staying "selected" with the other user. Let me explain: I check the box that says "leave mail on server" and while I'm in Outlook that session it seems to be working fine, but when I close Outlook and then open it again later to check email, I notice that it is not leaving mail on my server. I go back to the delivery setting and the "leave mail on server" check box is unchecked?? I've gone in and selected it at least 10 times and each time I log back in it is not checked anymore.

I checked the settings against the other user, where this option is working just fine and as far as I can tell both users' Outlooks are set up exactly the same.

I'm using McAfee SpamKiller, not sure if this has anything to do with the problem, but I know these kinds of programs can affect email clients in wierd ways like this.

Does anyone know how I might be able to fix this?

I appreciate any advice that can be offered.

Thanks,

Three times in the last 24 hours this warning has opened on my Desktop, after I have just closed Windows Live Mail [WLM] . After the warning disappears from the Desktop, WLM opens yet again.

Naturally I've allowed the issue to be reported to MS and sent the information, but I note that there is also a File that describes the event, in this case:

C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\Temp\WER21C8.tmp.hdmp

Is there any way that I may attempt to either fix or resolve this issue myself? For starters, I haven't a clue about how I access the quoted File, and if I did, I don't know what to do with it anyway.

Or is this yet another of those situations where you just grin and bear it until MS come up with something to resolve the issue? Hope not 'cos it's mildly annoying...

Answer:"Windows Live Mail has stopped working" - Files describe event; Fix?

1) Ignore error message.
2) Do a "repair" of Windows Live Essentials via Programs and Features
3) Use the Disk Cleanup utility
3) Use sfc /scannow via the command prompt window.

My Windows XP, SP2 system has recently developed some problem behaviour:

For example, if I download an executable (say ppp.exe); open the containing folder using Explorer and "right-click" "open" on the file ppp.exe, the executable does not execute. Instead the Explorer window shows an "hour glass" cursor and the Explorer window shows the (not Responding) message in its title.

The only way to recover has been to power off the machine - the Windows shut-down sequence appears to be broken.

Similar behaviour occurs if I "double-click" on the executable.

If I boot Windows XP in safe mode, I find that I can execute the ppp.exe file with success, but this is cumbersome and recently I have been experiencing problems getting into safe mode.

Also, the "Add or Remove" program has stopped working - I get the "hour glass" hang during what should be a normal uninstall sequence.

I would appreciate help in getting my XP system back to working condition.

Thanks.

Hello friends, Here is my requirement. I have many devices connected to my home network. I am looking forward to a way, preferably like a one click solution or toggle switch, by which I can toggle between "LAN only" and "LAN + Internet" modes on my laptop. This would be helpful when we are wirelessly accessing files on the laptop from other devices, while keeping internet off on the laptop alone (other devices will be able to access internet). Kindly note that I must be able to switch between the two modes with ease as I use my laptop too to access internet. It is only when I want to disconnect my laptop alone from the internet, that I need the above solution. My laptop doubles up as a network storage for all my files, while enabling access to them from other devices. Thanks in advance.

This afternoon, all of a sudden, I couldn't log into Outlook, Gmail, enter an address in IE or use Google. Whenever I entered a "r" the "Run" box would appear and whenever I entered an "e" the search box would appear. Most of the letters worked OK but a lot of them brought up something else. This has never happened before. I tried using "System Restore" all the way back to 12/31 but that did not help. I have been running ESET NOD32 (it's 97% finished and although it hasn't found any virus infections, it has located numerous errors opening files.)

Then, all of sudden, the situation corrected itself and I was able to log into Outlook and Gmail and use Google.

So, every once in a while I come across this strange issue:

1. Aero Peek suddenly stops workingWhen I hover my mouse over windows on the taskbar, the windows preview will flash for a fraction of a second and then vanish, if I'm moving my mouse along the taskbar the window preview will quickly "blink" (it appears and disappears) for as long I'm moving my pointer across that program's area on the taskbar, but nothing even remotely clear enough to see what's in that window. Once I stop moving the mouse, even while in that program's title area on the taskbar, i can't get the "blinking" effect to come back for that specific one unless I move my mouse off of it and then back on.2. Clicking with the scroll wheel to scroll stops workingI like to scroll pages by clicking and holding with the scroll wheel, then I release when I get to where I want to be. But that functionality no longer works, nor does simply clicking once and then moving the mouse to scroll. When I try either of these methods, the small white circle with the arrows which indicate that you've clicked to scroll with the mouse wheel will flash on the screen for an instant then disappear.What I've tried:
Restarting computer (works, but is a nuisance especially if I have a lot of tabs open in Chrome)

Hi all,

I'm puzzling this one. In the folder options when I choose 'view' the radio button to show the hidden files is missing. I've already checked the registry at the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced/Hidden

and everything seems ok (value for 'Type' is 'group' etc.). Using the XP tweak (Kelly's corner #155) shows the hidden files, but the button still missing.

Another thing that I encountered with was that from the start menu the "Help and Support" not working. Again, the registry seems fine, and the process is activated (started). This came up when I tried to use system restore option - with no success.

Virus scan didn't find alerts of any kind

Ok I found the answer (after quite a lot searching), as follows:

1. for the 'Hidden files' radio button - I used methods 1 and 2 from here-
http://www.technize.com/2007/05/13/s...s-not-working/

2. for the helpcenter I just reinstalled it as described here -
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/rebuildhelp.htm
note that the file 'dataspec.xml' is needed to be available for this, and it can't be done directly from the XP CD. The thing that worked for me was to insert the XP CD, and use the file that in my computer (C:\) and afterwards another file on the CD.

Again, all this happened with no virus detection, so I believe that there is no infection. However, if someone has remarks on the HiJackThis log I've put, feel free to add them.

When trying to update with Windows update, i get a spontaneous reboot or a bluescreen-crash.
The filename "lzx32.sys" is mentioned.

The updates i'm trying to install are the following (roughly translated from norwegian):
"Update for Windows Media Format 11 SDK for Windows XP (KB939399)"
"Windows Tool for removal of dangerous software - march 2007 (KB890830)"
Other than that, i believe i have all other windows-updates.

I do however recall there beeing a third update on the list when i started the installation for the first time.
After the third or forth spontanous restart/bluscreen, when i figured something was wrong, it has disappeared from the list.

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

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

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

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


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

At first I completed the download and than waited for around 3 hours for "preparing for installation" and than when i again started the updating after the restart it is showing "checking for update" from past an hour.
What should i do?

Answer:Why does windows to update stuck at "checking for updates" and "preparing for installation" ?

The OS is probably missing some updates during the upgrade process. Be patient and let the process work on its own.

Yesterday my PC crashed and now I can only use it in Safe Mode. I have been through the Windows self repair program which has done nothing. The first time it happened, it allowed me to start from a system restore point, but then it crashed again and now doing a system restore doesn't even let me start up windows normally.

I looked in the "device manager" driver section and it has an exclamation mark next to the "Consumer IR Devices" in the "System Devices" section and It says: "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"
Further details:
"Driver Provider: Microsoft"
"Driver Version: 6.0.6001.18000"

I click on "check for solutions" it doesn't do anything, and I have tried uninstalling and restarting the computer, and also the "update driver" option but it says windows has determined it is up to date.

Does anyone have any solutions for this? I have been googling for a solution for hours and haven't came across any solutions, apart from that it could potentially be to do with video card/drivers or RAM.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I was having an issue with my Windows 7 cursor flickering between 'arrow' and 'working in background' at an irritianting rate and found the following TechSupportGuy thread a couple of minutes ago:

http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/642572-mouse-cursor-constantly-flickering-between.html

One of the posts in the thread lead me to the solution but unfortunately it seems most people have opted for reinstalling the OS instead!

Given the the original thread is closed I decided to create a new one and post the solution here in an attempt to prevent people from taking such drastic measures to get rid of this (incredibly irritant) issue in the future.

I simply disabled the Windows Search service and killed the process behind it (SearchIndexer.exe) in Task Manager. My cursor is now back to normal

Disabling this service means any new files will not be indexed although you can re-enable it and leave the pc running for a couple of hours every now and again so that new files are indexed. Hope this helps!

After updating yesterday, explorer.exe no longer starts correctly, either on startup or manually. A windows restore to before my latest updates fixes the problem, but installing the updates causes the problem again. I do want to keep the system up to date, so I figure I shouldn't just turn automatic updates off. Some notes:
I sit on the "Welcome" screen after logging in for longer than usual before getting to the desktop.
"Personalized Settings" seems to be what's causing the issue - this is the window that freezes.
I don't have a start bar.
Everything else works fine - I can launch programs through the command line or task manager, including windows explorer.
My wallpaper no longer loads - or, to be more precise, it's just a black color.
I have DisplayFusion installed, but I uninstalled it and this had no effect.
Here's a screenshot of the symptom along with my recent update history.

I'm not totally averse to reinstalling windows, but I do want to make sure the same thing doesn't just happen again. Anyone have ideas?

This is an on-going problem and I am at my wits end.

What I have: Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 64bit, no additional software installed since I could never get past the update issue.

The symptom: went attempting to run windows update it says "searching for updates". It never stops "searching for updates" until I close or end the program. I have let it run for 2 days straight.

What I have tried:
1. Did the "clear the cache" fix, (stopped BITS and windows update services, deleted SoftwareDistribution folder, then restarted), no change
2. Attempted to install updates manually, it hangs on "searching for updates on this computer".

3. Even when trying to install the system update readiness tool does not work.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thank you

Answer:Windows update not working, hangs while "searching for updates"

I decided to start over, even installed a new, factory fresh hard drive (I have planned to do this in the future and thought this would be a good time to do it).
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit, SP1 from an original windows disk.
I activated windows successfully and started windows update.
It does the same thing as before, just says "searching for updates" and never does anything else.
Could it be my hardware? I have a good fast internet connection to most sites. Memory tested good.
No driver issues seen.
I did notice when I installed windows, all the window colors were set to red.
I don't remember seeing that before. I changed the color to the default blue color.

Thank you for your continued support.

Dear Forum,

the windows update service on my laptop only returns error 80070002. It seems to be a common problem for a lot of people, however most of the standard steps to take do not seem to work for my machine.

CHKDSK is ok.

sfc /scannow however refuses to work. Even with admin privileges, it says that "resource protection" wont allow it to run. If started from windows recovery mode, sfc claims that there is another operation pending and a reboot is needed, first. Needless to say, this other operation is stuck in limbo.

All other methods of manually deleting/reseting the update logs, including the .bat from this website, have failed.

Even returning to a system restore point brought no change.

The last known update to work was for net framework.

I'm not sure where to go from here since i figure my attempts might have already made the situation worse.

Hi --

I just migrated to a new hard drive and did a clean install of Win7 (did not have SP1 on the DVD).

During the Updating process, windows stopped working and I received an error, something about running Update again, etc. So I rebooted and finished the Upgrading process...no further problems noted.

However, I view the "Installed Updates" and see that KB2604114 and about 20 other updates "FAILED." But when I view the "Update History," it lists KB2604114 and the others as "installed."

I'm confused. Are the updates I'm referring to "FAILED" or are they properly installed?

Thanks!

Answer:Win7 - "View Update History" vs. "Installed Update"

In your description, you might have switched the observations.

"History" is a log that tracks attempts at installing specific updates. One user might have multiple failed attempts for a particular update; or multiple successful attempts if one was looking for a source of a problem.

"Installed updates" records the last successful installation of a specific update; no timestamp, just the date.

Hi!

My Sony VAIO laptop computer is not feeling well.

I have Windows Vista 32 bit, which i have (presumably) upgraded to at least SP1.
As for Service Pack 2, i can not install it due to the problems i am about to describe.

When i first log into Windows, i log in as my only user account (named "Lizard"), which is also my administrator account.

Among the very first messages i get is an error from RunDLL stating that "Error loading C:\Users\Lizard\AppData\Local\Temp\ddcAsqpO.dll".

After closing that alert - everything works just fine for between 2 to 20 minutes.

Then, i get another message that says "Host process for Windows services stopped working and was closed.".
After this error message, my beloved laptop goes through a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde tranformation.
Everything related to Windows Explorer goes in slow motion, if i - for instance, want to save an image i have created - i have to wait for several minutes before the computer unfreezes. That is, if i'm lucky enough to get it back in the first place.
I have tried to get relevant updates for Windows; apart from Service Pack 2 i have also tried to use Windows Update, but i get an error message during the download procedure and then nothing is installed.

The same applies to Spyware Doctor, a program that used to run regular scans of my computer earlier, but now has been paralyzed by something.

I'm not sure how or where to address this issue.
As of 4 days ago, I am randomly having a box pop up that says "Update Manager Has Stopped Working"
I've been able to use the Realtime Data through my Avast to find that it's C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\dw20.exe that is attempting to run, but apparently failing.
How can I fix this?
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version of the .NET framework, I've also attempted to use the .NET clean up tool, both to no avail.

Answer:.NET framework "Update Manager Has Stopped Working"

System restore shouldn't affect data. You can image before system restore so in case something goes wrong you can restore back. Anyway,

I have the same dw20.exe, I don't have office.

You can scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free if too concerned about an infection.

Found this:





Quote:
DW20.exe is an error-reporting application packed with Microsoft products such as Microsoft Office. Once installed, it collects information automatically when a Microsoft application unexpectedly quits, freeze or crashes; it then allows users to send the information to Microsoft for analysis. This report assists Microsoft in solving problems to improve future versions of the software. DW20.exe is not required for Microsoft programs to work and can be disabled and removed from startup to prevent it from running.

So I believe, you haven't found the failing application yet. You have to find which updater is failing.

Have a new computer which runs Windows XP 2005, and it's been a bit of a rough road.

Lately when I start up the computer, the "Windows Installer" appears every time. "Please wait while Windows configures Your Sonic Update Manager." The next window that appears is Sonic Update Manager, and it says, "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert 'Sonic Update Manager' disk and click OK." At the bottom of this same window is 'Use Source: 1'.

When I click "OK" or "cancel," a message appears, "The path '1' cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'UM.MSI' in a folder from which you can install the product Sonic UPdate Manager."

If I continue to click 'cancel,' it eventually all goes away. But it's annoying and I'd like to set things straight. How do I get this to go away???

I looked on my original invoice from Dell, and yes, they did install Sonic, but I don't have a CD for it. It may also help for you to know that this began after my ten-year-old son had me install Editing Software powered by Muvee for his Vidster video camera from Mattel. Could that have something to do with it?

Any advice would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Why do "Windows Installer" and "Sonic Update Manager" keep popping up?

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter and click on the startup tab.

See if you have these processes listed "issch" and "isuspm". If so, uncheck them, click apply and restart the computer.

Hi, this is a small problem that I hope someone can help me with, that I have not been able to solve. From the question, you'll recognize that my PC knowledge, leaves a lot to be desired. I use an up to date PC, less than 2 years old, that was set up and working perfectly with Win 10. On (7/28) I received and installed the Win 10 "creators" update 1703 version 15063.483. Everything went fine but for a "small" problem, small, except to me. The start menu (I use the Classic Start) and the right click, context menus, the font is too small for me. I'm in my mid 70s and need the print to be larger, with those menus. I have tried searching Win 10 and Classic Start settings, to no avail. It seems you can enlarge most anything, except make those particular fonts larger. I have used all size setting in the Win 10 set up and have nothing in the "Classic Start" settings. I would appreciate any suggestions, that would allow me to adjust the fonts, in those areas. I have enlarged the font size in the other places that I needed. I have gone to the MS "communities" forums and the suggestions there, were the standard set size or scaling, which made everything else larger, except the start and context menus. I did not have this issue with the previous Win 10. I seem to have stumped the folks there, here's hoping some of you all will be able to help.
Thank you before hand for your help. S Rubin
