Cannot bring some apps to the front

Question: Cannot bring some apps to the front

This started this morning. Running Windows 10 Pro. I can run the browser (Chrome), luckily. Word also. But I cannot most other apps (I think), like WinSCP, but not Calc, not Notepad++, not Notepad. If I try to run Calc, it loads in the task try and if I hover the mouse over it I can see the image of it. Same with Notepad++, But if I click on the icon, nothing happens. Word is fine when loading or clicking on the task try icon. Same with Chrome. Same with Edge, Firefox, Visual Studio. So far, limited to Notepad, Notepad++ and Calc but there could be more.

More: Explorer as well.

WELL, not exactly. I use a program called Agent Ransack to search the desktop. I don't use it much but I know that you can click on an Explorer icon and choose the folders you want to search. I did that and explorer came up OK. BUT not from the Start Menu or task bar.

Unfortunately running Explorer from this program limits me to selecting folders.

Preferred Solution: Cannot bring some apps to the front

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

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

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

Answer: Cannot bring some apps to the front

Switch to and bring to the front in Task Mgr does nothing.

If I run Word and then File->Open-Browse, I can use Explorer no problem. Just not from Start or Task Bar.

Hi,

Can someone help me with this as i really can't think of how to do it, a quick Google search hasn't helped either and the only other place i could think of that is as useful as Google is... Seven Forums

I would like a Batch or VBS file to do the following (or something that will at least do it)

I have 1 PC with 1 Monitor...
I have 2 browser windows running full screen...

I would like to open/display/bring them to front alternately automatically.
How can this be done?

Example in readable form, well i hope:


Code:
:Start
Bring to front
"browser window 1"
Pause=30seconds

Bring to front
"browser window 2"
Pause=30seconds
GOTO :Start

Regards,
JDobbsy1987

Answer:Batch/VBS File, 'Bring To Front' help

Unless they are different browsers, it could be impossible to program something that would be able to discern "window 1" and "window 2" across many different browsing sessions.

Can you explain more of why you'd like to do this so we can think of other ways to possibly address it?

Hello, trying to find some key+click combination to bring all windows for a given application to the top of z-order. For example, I have several Putty terminal windows open in the stacked taskbar icon and I want to display all of them, not just the last used. The only work-around I have found so far is to shift+right-click and "minimize all windows" followed by "restore all windows". Any simpler way to do this?

Answer:Bring to front all windows for a certain application

+1 +1 +1...
Completely surprised that this has received no response in almost two years (698 days). Are droidix and I the only Win7 users who use more than one window of the same application and would like to bring them all to front at once?.

Without even going into third party applications - what if you just want to open two or more explorer windows to copy files from folder to folder? Win7 has given us new "side-by-side" and "stacked" window arrangements that help with this but as soon another application covers these it take many mouse clicks and/or key combinations to display them all again.

Hey Microsoft! Please add a "bring group to front" context menu command to the taskbar! <-- this will probably fall on deaf ears so if there are any third party developers out there that can do this I would gladly pay for the application, could be your road to riches.

This is the second time I've gotten this bug, and it seems to occur roughly two weeks after a fresh install.

Long story short, I pin all of my favorite applications to the taskbar and when I click on a running program, I expect it to bring focus to that program (bring it to the front). Instead, it flashes yellow and the window that I want stays behind every other window. The only program that does not do this is Digsby for whatever reason. Basically, the only way to see an existing window is to minimize all of the windows in front of it and only clicking on the window itself will give it focus. That's partly a lie, because I've discovered that a series of clicks on the taskbar icon will do it, namely: right click, left click, right click, left click. I don't want to have to do four clicks when one normally works.

I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit acquired through the MSDN program for students (Academic Alliance or something). I do know that I never had these issues in the beta with Ultimate edition.

Thanks.

Answer:Taskbar bug, doesn't bring programs to front.

I am also having this problem. I'm using Windows 7 Professional 32-bit and am having the same symptoms. Clicking a program on the taskbar doesn't bring it to the front, it just blinks yellow/orange. I have to Win-tab or minimize windows in front of the program to get to it. Any help on this would be most appreciated.

Hi,

I am working with a powerpont presentation where I have put a logo in the slide master, it needs to show on every page. So here is the problem. On some slides I have to insert pictures that cover up the portion of the logo that is saved on the master. However, the part of the picture that is covering up the logo is just dead white space, and I figure there is a way to make the logo always go to the front.

Let me know if anyone has any ideas or needs more clarification.

Thanks.

Anyone else run into this?

I'm running Vista x64.. After awhile, say a week.. or maybe just 1 day.. frequently when i have say 4 explorer windows opened and grouped in the task bar.. I can click on the group, but attempts to click on an individual explorer session fail.. its not just explorer's that have been minimized, pretty much anything that has more than 1 item (grouped) wont let you click on any of the items.

Only fix is a reboot.

On the MajorGeeks front page on January 18, 2008, there's a couple of apps I downloaded to play with... one is GPU Caps Viewer 1.4.2 here's the link http://www.majorgeeks.com/GPU_Caps_Viewer_d5716.html and the other is the AMD64 CPU Assistant 0.1.8.278 and here is it's link http://www.majorgeeks.com/AMD64_CPU_Assistant_d5781.html Both apps work as advertised, without any issues, well not serious issues anyway... First, GPU Caps Viewer; what's with the name? Caps Viewer? Also, the box where the GPU tempurature is supposed to be is greyed out. Not a huge deal, but why is it greyed out? The app detected everything about my AGP card perfectly, it's accurate, just no temp... no biggie, just wondering. And the AMD64 CPU utility; if I was less experienced in the install of software, I would have COMPLETELY freaked out when installing this!! Look at the attached screen shot and you'll see what I mean! It's a good thing that I remember where the OK and Cancel and Next buttons are usually located! Other than these very minor nitpicking details, both apps are fine once they're up and running...

EDIT-- OK, I just now figured out that GPU Caps is short for GPU Capabilities!!!! Jeeeez, I'm a stooge.

I installed many apps locker they all work fine but I can still access apps from the all apps list.

Answer:My apps locker work fine but apps can be accessed from the all apps list, how can I prevent this?

Yes. There is no such thing as a real app locker app in Windows Phones. This is because third party apps are not allowed to interact or interfere with other third party apps due to Windows Phone Sandboxing technology.
If the developer was careful with his app, he or she would have indicated the limitations of the "app locker" he created in the app description. Otherwise, if there is no such disclaimer about the limitations of the app in the app description, the user is encouraged to report the app to Microsoft as a fraudulent or misleading app.

Please help! I am stuck on an issue with a USB stick recently purchased. The stick is fine, the issue is it will only work on the 2 USB ports on back of the computer, not with the USB ports on the front. I have tried other devices, and the same thing happen, fine with back usb ports, but not with front. I downloaded a program to see if the fron ports were recognised, and this has told me they are USB 1.1, but i'm not sure if this means they are actually connected? Anyway, i cant get any device to work on the front USB ports, any suggestions?Thanks!

Answer:front USB  ISSUES! front USB's not working?

The front ports may not, if they are indeed USB 1.1, deliver enough power for the USB stick to work.Try connecting a device that does not draw a lot of power, like a mouse, to see if they are functioning properly.

Last night my Lumia 925 randomly locked up (which it seems to do quite often) so I did a soft reset and then noticed a bunch of problems.
First I noticed a bunch of my app tiles were blank or only displaying the app name. That happens from time to time when apps are updated or decide to lose track of the day. So I tried to go in and refresh them. But a lot of them wouldn't open. Others will open but crash immediately, and others still will open and display their info but won't update their live tiles. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling some of them but it has had no effect.
In addition to apps not behaving, various settings windows won't open. I thought maybe my phone updated and the update was buggy, but I can't check because Extras+Info crashes before opening.
Also, in my app list the first 4 apps are things I did not install, and don't look normal. @{Miscrosoft.BingTranslate, @{Microsoft.MSBatterySaver, @{Microsoft.MSCalendar, and @{Microsoft.MSPodcast. Pretty sure none of those are supposed to be displaying that way.
I didn't attempt to install anything. I've been running 8.1. I don't know if there was an update pushed out last night that I didn't notice installing.
But my phone isn't working and I am frustrated.
Anyone know what's wrong or have suggestions?

this is a cable i have

I am interested if you can have front audio and spdiff output sound.

HP says ---> One 9-pin audio header for headphone-out and microphone-in (yellow, Vista capable, requires matching front audio jack module)

also HP says ---> "Supports one S/PDIF digital connection"
the board has an internal and external spdif, so what is HP saying?






Quote:

*Integrated audio is not available if a sound card is installed.

High Definition 8 channel audio

shows the external spdif #2 rca jack which I use hooked up to a sony receiver.

Answer:AC 97 front audio cables on this mb front audio? msi ms-7548

An AC97 connection will work in place of an HD Audio connection to the motherboard sound connection. The AC 97 doesn't support some jack sensing that the HD Audio does.

It should work OK to test if you can get front panel audio and S/PDIF at the same time.

is not this a issue. it is eating too much of internal memory

Answer:Why are Windows Phone apps larger in size as compared to Andriod apps?

If true, then the app will occupy more space in storage (internal or SD card). There is however no direct relationship between file size and RAM usage. You can't tell, just by looking at file size, how much memory will be required.

As well as providing APIs that let developers interact with Google services, and porting many features back to older versions of Android, Play Services has an important role in Android security.

The "Verify Apps" feature of Play Services is Google's firewall against app-based malware. It was introduced in 2012, and first enabled by default in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. At the time of writing, 92.4% of active Android devices are running version 4.2 and up, and older versions can manually enable it in the Google Settings app.

Verify Apps works similarly to a traditional PC virus scanner:
Whenever the user installs an app, Verify Apps looks for malicious code and known exploits. If they're there, the app are blocked outright ? a message is displayed saying "Installation has been blocked." In other, less suspicious cases, a warning message may be displayed instead, with the option to install anyway. (And Verify Apps can also help remove known malware that's already been installed.)

Hi,

As the post title suggests, I am having trouble with the modern apps and connectivity. It feels like half my computer will connect to the internet, and the other half won't. Desktop apps like Chrome, Steam, Outlook, iTunes etc. all connect to the internet fine, but any of the Windows apps like Xbox, Store and (most frustratingly) Settings will not connect.

In my network and sharing centre in the control panel it says 'You are not connected to any networks' - but in the system tray, and in the settings app it shows me as connected to my home wi-fi. I am on a desktop, and using a USB wireless adapter. I don't think the adapter is the problem as I have tried it on another desktop in our house on Windows 10 and it worked fine. Curiously also, when I click 'Adapter settings' in the control panel, it shows the wifi connection.

I've tried updating the drivers for the wireless adapter, both through the Windows update and adapter website but to no avail (and as I mentioned, it seems the adapter works fine elsewhere). I've updated manually to the latest Windows 10 Pro build, i've done a DNS flush, I've tried disabling firewalls and anti-virus, I've tried disabling startup apps, I've done a clean install of Windows 10 and still am unable to fix the issue.

If anyone has any ideas that might help that would be great. I'm happy to provide any more information if people need it.

Thanks very much.

Answer:Move installed apps & New apps will save to settings greyed out - Windows 10

It appears that this decision has been postponed by Microsoft:

We have actually made the decision to postpone the apps on SD functionality to a later release. While I know this feature excited many of us, we didn't feel like it was ready for prime time. Our goal is to delight users with everything that we build, and we truly feel that that is what will happen once we have fully built our vision for this feature.

I bought a glow-in-the-dark keyboard a few weeks ago. The paper they referred to as an owner's manual said to delete the previous keyboard drivers to avoid conflict. I was wary of doing that, and I also did not know how to do it. I was expecting a simple plug n play, but of course nothing is simple with this stuff. When I first tried to use the new board, Windows would freeze up, but I kept at it till I found a way to make it work. I've been leaving the little cd that came with the new keyboard in the drive. When I power on it says 'no keyboard' found. Then I reload the drivers for the new keyboard, the computer reboots itself, and it's been working for quite a while that way. I know it isn't the proper way, but it's been working so I've put up with having to reload the new drivers every day. Today Windows started freezing up again even after I reloaded the new drivers when it gets to the place where I select which user name to use. That's the way it was doing before I found a way around it. I think it must all have begun when there was some sort of fatal error in Windows this morning. I looked at the screen just as an error box faded away and XP started shutting itself down. I didn't see the error message. So I'm writing to ask how do I remove the drivers for this old keyboard, and after that is done, and I reload the new drivers again, will the reloaded drivers be permanent? Thank you.

hi i want to know if i remove my all apps and games to m.card and than hard reset the phone... will i able to get all my stuff back from m.card or not... plz help me...

Answer:apps remain safe if i remove all of my apps and games to memory card and then hard reset my phone...

In short, No.you will not.
You will not get data back for games and apps that do not utilise onedrive for cloud save.
Any game or app that is discontinued from the store will not restore as all games and app re-install directly from the store - not from your back up. Even if you have apps and games on your SD card, they most likely will be over written during the re-install process.
To restore, once the phone has finished and rebooted, when prompted log in with the same account that you used previously when you set up your phone.
I hope this clarifies how the back up system works

Hi,

I've been struggling with this problem for a few days now. The problem is that I do NOT have internet access for firefox/chrome/dropbox/etc but i DO have internet access for IE and certain OS apps (like Network Troubleshooter). I've read and tried most of the typical solutions with no avail.

What I've Tried:
Safemode with Networking - same situation, I can use IE but not Firefox/Chrome/etc
Reseting Winsock (netsh winsock reset, etc) - didn't work, possibly just made matters worse?
Flushing DNS (ipconfig /flushdns, etc)
I do NOT have a special proxy, and neither firefox, nor chrome, nor IE are trying to use one
I have added exceptions in Windows Firewall, then just straight up disabled the firewall
I have Avira antivirus, but it does not contain any firewall features and no place that I can see to add any such exception
LSP-Fix.exe (I tried to fix the LSP registery, it found 1 problem from leftover Bonjour dll, and I've repaired it but its changed nothing)
I ran quick-scan on malwarebytes - found nothing
I ran checkdisk and found no errors
I have no system restore point
Also, with firefox, I hve tried it in safe-mode and created a new profile, but that hasn't changed anything. When I try to make a connection with firebug open, it says the request was "aborted"

Because native Microsoft software (IE, OS software) has no problem connecting to the internet, I'm just trying to figure out what bridge was burned between firefox/ch... Read more

Answer:Solved: Internet works for IE and OS apps, NOT for firefox or 3rd party apps

Ok, so literally nothing was working - I did a "Repair Install" using my windows 7 cd. It took 2 hours, but when it finished up all of my networking was working So, for those of you who are having similar issues, as a last resort I'd give that a shot. Definitely read a few articles about what is required to successfully perform a Repair Install, as you don't want anything going wrong during that process.

Hey everyone ?
I came with a bit of weird thought I dunno if I was right or wrong , I like the universal app thing and it is really amazing to have the very same app run on both my phone and laptop , this idea is really compelling and good for developers for easier developing and wider audience , but if you take another look , wouldn't that be bad for some certain developers or companies ?
Take WhatsApp for example , it hadn't ever made an app for PC did it ? But with windows 10 it MUST make that app bcos it will run on the PC , am I wrong ? The same story goes for other apps like snapchat , and less common apps like bitstrips (makes cartoonish comics of yourself and share on facebook and twitter) , so what do you think ??

Hi there.

I had a problem recently with an updated version of VLC on Amazon fire TV -- was really bad compared with previous version -- especially if you like / use subtitles as the feature to load the subtitle from an external file when playing your own media has GONE !!!! (Android version 2.1.1)

I've long complained about not being able to restore previous versions of Android apps after a hideous update - a lot of app updates seem to be WORSE than the earlier versions -- VLC is a good example of this -- note the PC version is still EXCELLENT !!!

Anyway two ways now

1) store / keep the old apk file on your computer and then with a cli between computer and the target device you can install the old version directly via the CLI.

2) to install from Phone to Amazon fire stick / TV directly follow this guide

How to Sideload Android Apps onto Your Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick

I managed to re-install prev version of VLC on to my Fire TV by uninstalling the version on the Fire TV and then following the guide.

BTW for a LAN / Home use it's a lot easier using VLC (on the fire stick - you don't have to do anything with VLC on your computer - you don't even have to start it or even install it) to play your multi media - it will browse your LAN etc. Saves setting up things like PLEX which while fine are a bit overkill and PLEX transcodes things like HEVC H265 codecs which can load your server and cause stuttering playback or even freezes if a few people are w...

When I set default storage space to SD card, the apps doesn't get installed, and same is the case when the apps are moved from phone to SD card in Lumia 535.
Checked for OS updates, but is of no use.
Any solution, please help out

Answer:Why the apps doesn't work when the apps are moved to SD card in lumia 535?

Did you make a soft reset? Just press volume down + power button for 10 seconds and it will reboot.
Another option you have is install the apps manually, via .xap files
If anything else fails maybe a hard reset is needed but that would erase everything in your phone.

Hi there

If you want to pin Metro apps / standard apps to desktop / create a custom toolbar with these as CASACADABLE items it's fairly simple.

I made a post way back in W8.1 about this --method still works - no reg hacks, XAML knowledge etc needed.

http://www.eightforums.com/general-s...tml#post390324

If you want your OWN icons use this little FREE program (ICOFX) to create the .ico files.

While the ALL apps idea in the previous thread is a good idea I like the idea of customising it een more -- I find the custom toolbar best for me with a few pgms pinned to desktop and quick launch taskbar.

Hello again, MG's best people::-D

I am having trouble bringing my desktop PC out of 'Stand By'.
I rarely used this function, for several idiosyncratic reasons, but now I'd like to be able to do it. Unfortunately, the PC has other ideas about this decision.:confused

It seems like a hardware problem, so I stuck this post in here; but it may be an OS issue and belongs under 'Software'....

I go to Start > Turn Off Computer > and then hit the 'Stand By' button. The PC and monitor shut down like it is really turned off, except the little blue light behind the button (where you boot-up the machine) is 'on'. The machine does not purr or make much noise. That's what I thought it was supposed to do.....

Okay. So now, when I jiggle the mouse, or hit 'enter' or hit the space bar, I am waiting for the PC to come back on, which it seems to be trying to do. The machine starts to purr a little, but there is no great humming and the monitor stays black. I can't get it up and running, or even out of this state that I am now cornered in.:cry

The only way to go at this point is to press that button that normally boots up the rig, and has a little blue light on behind it, and hold it down until the machine manually shuts down. Then I gotta re-boot it back up again.

Is this something someone knows how to fix in a simple way ?? I'm no experienced officer, so the �... Read more

"In an instant message chat, Microsoft has told the Windows Featured Communities that the demand for Windows Vista Beta 2 has been overwhelming. It is, in fact, the largest downloaded software in history. Currently, they are serving product keys out ten times faster then the downloads can be served. In fact, they are pumping out bits as fast as they can - any faster and there would be a measurable impact on the internet. In fact, I quote a Microsoft representive:

"So, we are literally saying that if we increased our bandwidth any further there's a possibilty of taking down the Internet - people might have problems with World Cup viewing, etc"

People who have recieved Vista Beta 2 product keys, but are unable to download, may need to wait a few days, up to one week. Microsoft encoruages users who want to try out Windows Vista Beta 2 to order the DVD. When they recieve the DVD in 1-4 weeks, install it, and activate it, they will be automattically guaranteed an RC1 upgrade."


this info was taken from http://www.jcxp.net/

i was wondering hwo this would happen how couls so many people DL vista and MS expanding there bandwidth "bring down the internet"??

Answer:bring down the internet?

the only way i could see it is there basicaly being a traffic jam, i'm willing to bet they're sending one out to every single backbone carrier, ISP, everything, they're uploading to the net as fast as they can, and probably every router within so many hops has seen vista go thru so many times, its all hogging up bandwidth more than they've seen before. Basically all the routers and ISPs that are shoving this out is causing everyone else's traffic, mainly the vista downloaders and probably microsoft web site browsers are experiencing it the most, but since vista is taking up so much bandwidth its causing everyone else's internet to be slow. I actualy havent noticed much a difference, mines always slow, **PUKE FOR DIALUP**

Question: Bring back pop up

The original issue for one of my users was she was getting a message on a certain webpage that said "To display this webpage correctly you need to download and install the following components: Java Virtual Machine"

The options on this box were to download or cancel. When you hit download, it would take you out to the java site in a different window and it would load the original screen one button at a time as you kept hitting download. Now I think I know how to fix this, but one of our level 1 techs decided to check the box that said 'Never download any of these components'. So now it appears this webpage doesn't want to downlod java components anymore.

Does anyone know how to get this pop up back after he checked that box? I feel like I've tried everything in the security settings and the advanced tab. She's got IE6SP1 on a 2000 machine.

Also to note: I actually reverted back to IE5.5 and the webpage worked fine, but when I upgraded to IE6SP1 again it gave us the same screen with red x's all over the place. Any ideas would be appreciated.

There are two things you can do you click click Alt every time then the menu bar will appear.

Or if you want it there all the time:

Ok fellas, here is my situation. I have a dvd/vhs player (dvd part is broken). I need to get a vhs onto my computer. I was thinking hooking up the dvd with the yellow and red rcas to my 7900gt video card (there is a adapter that hooks onto video card with yellow and red rca inputs). Now I tried hooking my tv up this way for the **** of it, and the computer screen projected onto the tv. now i need to do the opposite. I need the vhs from the player to project onto my monitor. Is there a program (perferably freeware) where I can then save/record the video onto my harddrive?
Thanks

Answer:How to bring VHS onto Computer

You need VIVO (video in video out) for that.

You could purchase the Hauppauge PVR-150 (TV Tuner/Capture) to do it.

Hi there

This "update in place" mechanism is a PAIN if it fails during the process -- this means you actually have to restore the previous image of your OS (if you have one), remedy the error and start again.

Mine failed because I was nearly out of HDD space for the OS so it ran out of space. OK I restored the OS from an image, used GPARTED to increase the partition size and then OK started again. OK this time.

Now in the "REAL WORLD" there will be many people who could be rendered with an inoperative computer if the update in place fails and there isn't an automatic roll back or the roll back fails. Some people (probably MOST who aren't on these forums) STILL don't take regular reliable backups !!! - Idiotic I know but true. !!

Having an ISO would eliminate a lot of this - just wipe your HDD and install clean -- what's wrong with that idea.

(I know currently there are some get around's on this (Kari's tutorial for example) but the average user won't do that of course).cre

The update in place is a DOG on VM's too - probably worse than on a REAL machine - especially if you run out of HDD (Virtual) disk space for the OS. You need to backup the image of the VM, Create a NEW VM and then restore it !!. You can't just image the OS or copy the Virtual Disk files.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Ms PLEASE bring back ISO's again

Good idea to have the option of this to download it

The only problem is would this work ok for the average user, I cant see many wanting to download an ISO, clean install and then install/setup all their apps again

IMO, the in place upgrades/updates as they are now are best for the average user, for more technical the ISO could be offered

Here is my list so far. I plan on playing Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim and Arma2 including some retro emulators such as Project64. I want this rig to be less then 600usd and was wondering if there was anything you guys thought would be better to change. I have an optical drive I can take from my current dell and I think we have Windows somewhere in a flash drive. Do I need windows 7 to play these games or just Steam? I dont need a monitor or keyboard or mouse. I have a Samsung 32in TV that I use as a monitor.

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116506

Right now it seems like this will come to over 600usd. I wanted a good processor and video card so that games wont lag and will be a good fps. I will likely play at the medium setting mostly, but may use high as well for games like skyrim. My dad knows computers moderately well and could help me with installing everything correctly.​
 

Answer:How can I bring the cost of this rig to under $600

I've just added everything to my shopping cart, including the Hyper 212 which was only $5 more at Newegg. It looks to be a total cost of $620 for everything listed. I did notice one thing, AMD recommends a 500W PSU with the HD 7850, the list has a 450W PSU chosen. Other than the 250GB drive, everything else looks good to me. I personally wouldn't spend $60 on a 250GB HDD. For $25 more you could have 4 times the capacity. I know you are looking to save a buck or two but sometimes shortcuts have too high a cost.

I am working on this computer and he has McAfee, ThreatFire, ParetoLogic and Speedy PC. We were having trouble with going to windows live, but your website helped with that, but I still can't load McAfee. It shows up running in the task mgr., but when I click on the icon it acts like it is going to come up, but doesn't. Down on the right side of the taskbar where the active programs are there is the McAfee symbol. When I right or left click nothing happens. He is running Vista Home Basic on his Acer. I downloaded Prevx and Malwarebytes had found malware and removed it. Paid some guy online $35.00 to help me fix problems, but he knew about as much as me and did a system restore and removed the above Prevx & Malwarebytes. I have tried disabiling the UAC and other stuff, but to no avail. I have spent 2 days on this and I am getting really frustrated. This computer is in Spanish which I can read some and the keyboard is also. I keep changing the language and it keeps changing back. I have a feeling that the McAfee has expired, but it still shoud come up. Oh yeah, the security center shows that there is no anti-virus software installed.One more thing...The ThreatFire has 2 screens that come up..one is a map and the other is about security and I can't close the windows unless I reboot. Also, I am having a hard time being able to read the letter verification.Thanks for any help you all can give me!
 

Answer:Can't bring up McAfee

McAfee and ThreatFire are both anti-virus programs and shouldn't be installed and running at the same time.

Those other cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup programs are basically useless and will do little to nothing to improve speed or performance. What they can do is break programs and damage the operating system.

Currently living/working in our RV while we are looking for a new home. Most RV parks have WiFi which works for my purpose IF I am outside. Once I step into the RV it is like stepping into a Faraday cage, i.e., the signal strength drops to almost useless levels.

What I'd like to be able to do is grab the signal (maybe a Ubiquiti?), get the park's IP address. Feed that into a existing WRT54G (as if it was connected to the WAN) via CAT-5 cable which would then be my "inside" WiFi. I know I don't want a repeater because I will lose bandwidth. Looks like I want to do a bridge (client?) but am not sure what to get for the initial signal grab.

Thoughts, suggestions, comments, welcome.

Or am I completely nuts and just need to get a rainsuit and an umbrella and work outside?
 

Answer:Best way to bring Wifi into RV?

you could mount a wi - fi anteena out side or on top of the R V if You Know How ?? then run the cable to your pc / laptop

As of late, my AD-AWARE and SPYBOT scans have been relatively clean. Then... this morning, for the first time in several weeks I fired up AIM and when I did a scan late tonite it found all kinds of stuff, Wupdater, Newnet among others.

Is AIM the likely culprit of these programs? I use OPERA as my browser and since making the switch to it have had hardly any spyware. AIM seems to open up IE for any of it's updates, games etc.... I was just curious about AIM contributing to this new spyware I found on my system.

Thanks

Hola, amigos!
As I mentioned a few days ago, I'm getting a new graphic card.
After much compromise and rebate, I settled for a Powercolor PCS Radeon HD 5450 - and no regrets!




Actually came in 2 days earlier than the delivery due-date. Impressive.

Ah, the speed at which Fable runs...it's glorious!
 

Answer:Bring forth the Radeon! :D

The package contained:




1 Radeon HD 5450
1 Installation manual
1 driver CD
and if it counts, a bubble-bag.

You should be able to do it by just opening two windows in IE.

But, I would like to recommend getting firefox from http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/, that program allows for tabbed browsing which will allow you to have multiple sites open in the same window.

Hi all. I have ThinkPad T520, and I wanted a USB 3.0 port. I found out that there is a dock station 4338-35 which has one. I was naive enough to believe that the docking station has its own USB 3.0 controller, so I've bought it. So yep, now I have lots of USB 2.0 ports, and no USB 3.0 port, because my laptop doesn't have USB 3.0 controller. Awful sad. How naive. Let me be a bit more naive and ask: is it possible to upgrade T520 somehow, and get USB 3.0 controller on it? Or, is USB controller built into the chipset so it's not possible? Thanks.

Sure. You could opt out of syncing those apps to your PC by going to PC Settings and finding the sync settings there, and you can cancel the downloads at the Windows Store.
