bing WMT, Business places, Windows Live log im suspended

Question: bing WMT, Business places, Windows Live log im suspended

I create SEO accounts for my clients to setup their web tools and their bing business listing. The client sent me their card with their address verification PIN and when I went to log in I got an "account Suspended". The screen only gives me
a phone number to text to. I think the client changed the number I had used to their office number which is a voice line. The screen wont give me a choice and it wont take any of the numbers I thought I used

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Are you a Bing addict? If not, you should be. Frankly, right now I'm not here to talk about Bing Search. It's all about Bing Wallpaper. Bing always releases different fabulous backgrounds and wallpapers which gets your system a perfect lock screen. Bing Wallpaper Viewer is a Windows 8 / RT app which displays all the Bing photos in a simple categorized way.
If you are living in U.S and you want to get wallpapers from the different Bing regions, you can easily switch between Germany, China, Japan, France, and more. You can also search for specific photos, download multiple photos to your picture library, share them by mail or SkyDrive, or even set them as your Windows 8 lock screen.
Bing Wallpaper Viewer works perfectly on laptop, ultrabook and tablet devices. Basically, it has a great amount of capabilities for multi-touch with pinch-zoom and flipping support. Also, it has been optimized for different screen sizes and orientations. Bing Wallpaper Viewer supports live tile, which will keep you updated about its latest wallpaper. Note: Windows 8 or Windows RT is required to run this app. Bing Wallpaper Viewer is available to download from the Windows Store.

Answer:Bing Wallpaper Viewer for Windows: View & download Bing wallpapers easily

Hi Tanmay
Thank you very much for writing this article and review on my app.
Unfortunately, a few months ago, "Bing Wallpaper Viewer" was removed by Microsoft because it used the word "Bing".
I now submitted the app again, but renamed it "Daily Wallpaper Viewer". it is in the store now, so you can download it.
It has a new look, with some new features and a few improvements.
I will continue to make new updates, and the app will always be free.
I hope you can update your article to refer to my new app.
Thanks for understanding and for your support!

Hi everyone! I need help. IE8 windows xp service pack 3, more specs in my profile. I don't know what happened but my MSN/Bing Toolbar has disappeared. I have tried uninstalling it but I get an error message that it might have already been uninstalled (in control panel-add/remove programs). Tried appwiz, deleted files and rebooted, but when I go to re-install, I get a message that it is already installed on my computer (from microsoft site). From Bing site, it starts to download, then stops 3/4 of the way and says error, try again, and the same thing happens. Another strange thing is that in IE, I go to View, and my Windows Live, and Msn is unchecked. Clicking on MSN only option is to disable, clicking on Windows Live, a plain toolbar shows, however does not show on other Tabs, even after locking and unlocking the toolbars.

Maybe Kumo won?t be the final new name for Microsoft?s ?Live Search? after all. ?Bing? also still seems to be in the running.
It was almost a year ago that I received a tip that Microsoft was considering three new names for its Live Search engine. Those three were ?Hook,? ?Bing,? and ?Kumo.? After the LiveSide.Net sleuths discovered that Microsoft had taken control of the Kumo domains, it seemed almost certain that Kumo was going to be the new name.
But now I?m not quite so sure. According to a ?Who Is? search, Microsoft is now listed as the registrar of the ? and ? domains. (It looks like Microsoft might have made its ownership public around March 4, according to information on the Who Is site.) Microsoft is redirecting a bunch of its own servers to point to Bing, as well.
(Microsoft still also owns the Kumo domain names. iGenesis Limited in Hong Kong owns ?
The Softies have been calling ?Kumo? a code name for the past month or so, but few believed that the company wouldn?t also make Kumo (which means ?cloud? or ?spider? in Japanese) the final name. Read Full News

Answer:Wait: Could 'Bing' be the new name for Microsoft's Live Search?

'Bing it' sounds much better that 'Kumo it', anyway ...

Over the past few days, I've noticed that the Live-Tiles for the Bing apps have stopped updating on the Windows 8.1 Start screen. I currently have Weather, Bing News, Food & Drink, and Health & Fitness installed. They are only showing the blank default icons. I have checked that they are set to live tile and not static. The apps appear to work ok if I click on them to open them - the weather app is the one I use most often, and I find now that it has to refresh on opening....
Other Live-Tiles are working just fine!
The Bing apps on my W8 phone work OK too, so I wondered if anyone else has noticed this, or have I missed a news item somewhere mentioning it?
Thanks :)

Answer:Problem with Bing Live Tiles on W 8.1 Start Screen?

Check your data limit for updating of live tiles. On Windows 8 or 8.1, go to charms > settings > tiles. Then change the limit by selecting from the drop-down menu.
It should look more or less like this:
If the problem is still there, there might be some problem with the Bing apps or it may be a W8.1 bug (there are loads of them).

Good Day,

My sister in laws laptop got a program called Live Security Platinum and she took it to a computer shop. They removed the program but the system keeps redirecting to random websites when searching on Yahoo, Google and MSN(Bing). The operating system is Windows Vista with Service Pack 2. The redirects are occuring in both Chrome and Internet Explorer. The browser will travel to the website in the search links but then forwards on to a random website. When I got it I figured it was a exploit of Java 6 so I removed older versions and install the lastest version from Sun/Oracle. Below is the log and attached are the Attach and Gmer logs. When running GMER it did not provide me with the options to select from System all the way downs to Libraries. The only options were for Services, Registry, Files(with C drive, and ADS. There is a copy of ComboFix on the machine so I believe that was ran on this machine by the computer shop. I will await instructions on what to do next.

I suspect it's some sort of indexing or windows is looking for something, how can I find out which program or process is holding things up?


Answer:Suspended windows loading

use msconfig from the run command and try turn one thing off at once and reboot till you find the one that causes the hang.
dont forgot to reenable each one after the reboot.
just remove one at once till the culprit is identified

Hello, I'm having an issue with my Windows 8.1 that the computer always crash after I want to resume to my suspended activity. I've read in other places that the issue was the Hybrid Shutdown. Well, for some reason, my computer does not have this option, but I was able to disable it via regedit.exe and cmd.exe.
By other people complaints, this issue happened just after they upgraded to Windows 8.1, when for me, it happened in the last update (I was already using Windows 8.1 and my computer was suspending it just fine).
I use suspend on my computer for fast loading time, instead of powering on and off. I was doing this for forty (40) days, before I decided to restart to make some updates (The Windows Update was realized between 12/31/2014 and 01/01/2015):

So I've been using the Google search engine forever. Since the changing the default search engine in Edge is buried in Advanced Setting and way near the bottom, I didn't do it right away. However, yesterday I came across a post on how to change the default search engine in Edge so I changed it to Google without delay.
But then every search came up with an annoying message box in the upper right-hand corner telling me to install Chrome. After half an hour I had gotten so tired of it, I switched it back to Bing.

We religiously track Windows Application fault events in our environment.

Recently we have noticed that when, Word 2013 x86 version (15.0.4823.1000, 15.0.4805.1001) running on Windows 8.1 x64,  crashes due to corrupted heap, we find suspended winword process that have no running threads.  the ccorrupt heap crashes are of
the type  exception c0000374 in Ntdll.dll at offset 0x000e6054.  We have two different situations in which we can trigger a crash that will produce the corrupted heap.

The problem is after the App crash the Windows Error Reporting service, attaches the WerFault.exe to the crashed process and saves the WER Dump file.  The problem is after this process is finished we are left with Winword.exe process that are in suspended
state.  They are not visible in the TaskManager but they show-up in Procexp,  these process have no running threads and the End task or end task tree have no impact.  The only way to exit the suspended process is to log off the user session. 

The suspended Winword.exe process cause problems when we re-launch a clean word, we have an add-in that detect's the suspended Winword and will not run.

On a test machine we disabled the WER service and of course we no longer see suspended threads, this is not an option for use because stopping the WER service stops logging of all Application Fault event ID 1000 and Application hang 1001 entries from the Application

I downloaded Windows Live Essentials for the messenger but now I would like to unistall it. I went to Uninstall/Change Programs in my control panel to uninstall it and I noticed a program called Windows Live Mesh activex control for remote connections. What is that for? and can I uninstall that as well? My dilemma here is that I cannot seem to uninstall Windows Live Essentiials. I double clicked on it in the Uninstall/Change Programs list and and was given a window that gave me the options:
1)remove one or more Windows Live Programs
2)Repair all Windows Live Programs

I clicked on the first option but it never let me choose which programs to uninstall. It just quickly flashed a window that said "uninstalling" and then it showed me "Done! Your programs you selected have been uninstalled." I didn't get to select anything to uninstall though. In the end, Windows Live essential is still installed and I can't get rid of it.

Any suggestions guys?

Answer:Uninstalling Windows Live Essentials and windows live mesh activex control for remote connections

Someone else will have to advise you regarding Windows Live Mesh. I know nothing about that. For Windows Live Essentials: If you cannot remove WLE using add remove programs try Revo Uninstaller. If I remember correctly it will not ask which components you want to remove.Here is how to use Revo Uninstaller: 1) First we download it from here: Revo Uninstaller Free Version. Scroll down the page for the free version download. You can skip this Step if you already have it installed. However, you may need to update it. If you have it installed already, and you need to update it, go ahead and open it up and click the AutoUpdate Icon next to Help. The use of this program makes registry changes based upon what you select for removal from the Registry. Before running Revo Uninstaller please run ERUNT before proceeding to back up your registry in case you make a mistake. 2) Select the Program to remove from the list of programs and click the Uninstall button: 3) After selecting the program you want to remove, and confirming you want to uninstall the program, then you will want to select the Advanced Option: 4) Click Next. This will start the uninstaller for the application you picked.

Hey guys.
I try to figure out how to enable the places bar in the save as dialogue window, you know where you can access the desktop or my documents with icons to the left of the window. I found some tweak in the registry to add your own places shortcuts in the places bar but it still would not bring up the places bar.

I just got switched to Windows 7 on my work computer and am trying to figure out how to add network folders to what used to be My Network Places. For example, when I'm in Word and saving an attached file, in XP there was a button called My Network Places (MNP). I was able to move assign some of my common network folders to the MNP and therefore to get to that folder with a single click.
So I'm not trying to pin a folder to the taskbar, but trying to retain a folder pathname so that when I'm saving a file, I don't have to go through the entire network path name to get to the folder of interest. Any help? Thank you.

Answer:Does Windows 7 allow My Network Places like XP did?

hi carolyn12345, and welcome to sevenforums,

what i do is drag my network locations to my favourites in windows explorer. i can then save files there from word easily.

maybe there are more elegant methods of doing this, but my way is simple and works for me.

I have two computers. I'll call them "mine" and "his".
"mine" has both Vista and Windows 7 installed (dual boot), "his" has XP Home.

When I boot "mine" into Vista, the networking works perfectly. Vista and XP can see files and printers and all is great.

When I boot "mine" into Windows 7, I can see "his" computer and access his files and his printer. However "his" computer doesn't even see "mine" show up in My Network Places.

I've checked the workgroup in Windows 7 and it's the correct name.
I've gone to the Network and Sharing Center in Win 7 and set my Network to "Home network".
I played briefly with the "HomeGroup" thing in Win 7 until I reached the point where it said it only worked for computers running Win 7. However it does says HomeGroup: Joined (and it appears that I've joined a HomeGroup).

So now what? Why can't XP see the Windows 7 computer?

Answer:XP can't see Windows 7 in network places

try go into the Network and Sharing Center...then choose Homegroup and Sharing Option. Try turn on the network discovery setting. See this --> Vista Network Discovery - Setting Network Locations | Windows Server Training

First post - kindly redirect me if this is posted in the wrong place

Problem: Our laptop has been freezing up lately (vague, I know, and I apologize...)

From what I've seen, it freezes up at just two different times.

1) When we're on the internet. We pull up Internet Explorer, go about our business, and after several clicks (usually just a few, actually), it freezes up and the busy cursor just keeps going. Then when we click on Close, nothing happens. Same when we go through the Task Manager. Or even just try to minimize or bring up the Start menu.

2) When we're logging off or shutting down. It'll stay on the Logging Off or Shutting Down screen with the busy cursor going. My mother pressed Shut Down one day, walked away, came back hours later, and the computer was still "Shutting Down..."

In both instances, the only way I can get it to do anything is to shut it down - improperly, of course, just by pressing the power button. And I know that's probably not helping matters. I'm not sure if it's something I might be able to tackle myself or if I should just take it to a pro.

Additional info:
It's a fairly new HP Pavilion dv5, no more than 6 months old. These problems started just a week ago, and it had no problems prior to that. We have had full virus protection with Norton since we bought it.

Thanks guys, if you can help.

Cortana is the new assistant that Micorsoft is packaging with Windows 10. You can activate Cortana with a voice command, ? Hey Cortana?, and among the many things you can do with it, you can also set a reminder. The reminders can be set so that they alert you at a specific time or place. Setting up a time-based reminder is easy enough but before you can set a place reminder with Cortana, you need to first add a place to it. Here?s how.

Open Cortana, click the hamburger icon and select places. This is where any and all places that you?ve added will appear. Click the Add button at the bottom and then enter the name of the place you want to add. Cortana relies on Bing maps so depending on how well, or in my case how poorly your area has been indexed and marked, you might have to enter the name of your city as well. It might also ask for permission to access your current location. Hit enter and wait for it to list search results.

Ok, I just started a new job and their domain is kind of screwy. They have a number of Windows 2000 machines running on a Windows 2003 AD domain. I am trying to get the AD integration for PC Duo running on this domain, but I am running into a problem. The machine I am using to test with, as well as every other Windows XP SP2 box, is missing from "My Network Places", which is what PC Duo uses to distribute clients remotely. I see all the Windows 2000 boxes fine. I found what could have been a viable solution, where I enabled File and Print Sharing in our Windows Firewall GPO, but all that did was give me every friggin domain in existence on the network, which totals well over 100. And I still couldn't see Windows XP boxes, which didn't help my problem anyway. Any thoughts on this? Where should I look?

Answer:Solved: Windows 2003 Cannot See Windows XP Machines in My Network Places?

Ok, it took me hours and hours of searching, but I found the problem.

Apparently, XP SP2 disables some services required by My Network Places to see and browse machines on a domain. These services are:
Workstation (needed to see computers in My Network Places)
Server (Needed to start Computer Browser)
Computer Browser (needed to browse computers in My Network Places)

Now, you don't NEED these services to run, and it's somewhat of a security hole to have them running all over your network, but they are required to run to both see and browse computers through My Network Places.

I see a tutorial here about customizing the places bar in the common file dialog, but I don't see how to get the places bar to show up instead of the navigation pane. There is nothing in the Organize -> Layout drop-down.



Answer:Places bar in Windows 7 common dialog

Actually, the places bar or rather the lack of it is an OS issue, not necessarily hardwired into the program.

When a program can be run in XP compatibility mode, like Textpad, as below, the places bar shows up, but not otherwise.

Also, when I run Office 2010 on my XP box, I get the places bar, but not on my Win 7 laptop. So there must be a way to get it to happen. We just haven't found it yet.

Hi, when I had previously setup Windows XP screen resolution to 1024x768 I would have such a hard time seeing the fonts in piticular areas of Windows XP. For example, I have an application called Maya. It is a 3D modeling/animation program which allows graphic designers to create 3d content as well as animating them too. The problem I have with this is when I click on a 3d object to read its attributes, such as its location in 3d space, the text is to small to read for my eyes. So I had decreased the screen resolution to 800x600, which did help with seeing the text better, but now I cannot work in the 3d view ports because the attributes window, which holds the data of the selected 3d object, is taken up most of my screen. In addition, Maya is not the only program I have this problem with. When my screen resolution is set to 1024x768, I cannot read the names of the files in Windows Explorer and under the start menu->all programs list. So I am wondering if there is away to change the font size for these 3 examples?

The computer is disconnected from the network.

The first part is ok. I have typed the name correctly, and I do have permissions. The last part is strange. My computer is connected to the network (hence this post through my browser), and the ftp computer I am connecting to is connected to the network (have tested by alternate means.)

I've been using the computer for a really long time but I don't have a clear understanding as to why or how certain OS's are set up the way they are...I'm curious to know why in Windows some of the same folders are stored in multiple places? This has always been an annoyance to me when it comes to organizing and remembering where everything is on my computer. Sure they're are ways to search for things but I feel that still takes up too much time and bottom line there's just gotta be a easier way to access your files. I have multiple computers and it's just impossible for to me remember where everything is.... I could be missing something on how to get a hold of it but anytime I look up how to organize your folders it still doesn't seem efficient to me.

Hi- My first post.
I've got a Toshiba laptop running Windows7. I like windows7 a lot actually!

Today, I tried to install a video program. It never seemed to work and hung up on "installing directx plugins". So, I downloaded Directx 11. It still didn't work and so I uninstalled the video trial (Vegas).

Anyway, so now, when I go to use my recording software (Sonar and Cakewalk) it tries to launch and installs it's plugins, but hangs up during launch. I go to Task Mgr and it says it's running, but only at 11,438 bits.

I look further into the TM and it says these programs are running but "Suspended". Not sure why this would be, I can only think of the new Directx thing.

So I tried doing a system restore to before I installed dx11. Still no go.

I CAN get both programs to run in Safe Mode, but it's not practical.

Any ideas what I can do short of an OS reinstall?

I seem to have got an adserver virus where windows constantly open up in left bottom corner of my screen, and sometimes web links take me to advertising pages. i have run malwarebytes and RegCurePro, but these have not fixed the problem. Following your instructions, these are the log files, however the Ark,txt is not complete as it kept crashing my pc. Be grateful for any help you can give as this is driving me nuts!!

I am using Windows 7 and I think an area is checked or unchecked. Everytime I save a document it saves in several areas of my computer i.e., Documents, Pictures, OS area. Even when I had a backup set up is duplicated the backup 5 and 6 times. Now I find these backups all over my computer. How can I correct this please. Now I have been deleting some of these duplicates and I am deleting files I wanted to keep.

My experienced both yesterdy. I did nothing wrong, have checked for malware and followed all the steps to be normal. I was told I was unblocked then when I sent an email it said I am suspended. After an hour on the phone, to no avail, I tried this am and after verifying I was normalized.
Someone was trying to access my account was the message that popped up.

Has this happened to you and why does this happen if you follow the rules?
What can I do to prevent this? I read about 2 step verification but this does not seem to help in this situation.
Thanks for listening,

Hiya folksI appreciate that this isn't necessarily a tecchy problem, but can someone out there advise me of the best course of action when an Ebay trader has been suspended. I paid good money incl p&p and insurance for an mp3 player that hasn't arrived, despite the traders promises!

Answer:ebay suspended traders HELP!!

If you paid by Paypal then you have some come-back - see their site for details. If you didn't, then I can only suggest you contact EBay - they won't tell you why this user was suspended but they may be able to help. Of course, this could well be the reason he/she got suspended in the first place!Good Luck.

I'm trying to access my MS account - got a message "Microsoft account temporarily blocked." In order to "unblock the account," they want to text me a code number to log in but I DO NOT have a cell phone which allows for texts. What do I do? Thank you.

One day my Cisco VPN client stopped working. I first tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. When reinstalling it, the process showed the error: "Windows cannot find installservice.exe" and the installation appeared to stop. A little later a message appeared asking to be restarted to complete. Upon reboot the installation restarted from the beginning and threw the "Windows cannot find installservice.exe" error again. This installation tries to restart each time the computer reboots.The Cisco VPN version is: 4.8.02. I have SP3 installed on Windows XP Pro- Tablet edition. There is plenty of hard drive space and I have no other known networking problems.Has anyone encountered a similar problem and fixed it? I welcome any suggestions. I'd also like to know which programs are known to interfere with Cisco VPN.Thanks!Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Answer:Suspended Cisco VPN Installation

Have you taken a look at the Cisco Support page? They have a knowledge base as well as methods to troubleshoot. Also a peer to peer forum, for Cisco specific applications.

This is the first BSOD after I installed Windows 10 a few days ago. I suspended the system (closed the laptop), and when I opened it nothing weird happened. But, after a few minutes, I got the BSOD.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000c2 (0x0000000000000007, 0x0000000000001254, 0x0000000000000000, 0xffffc0002b3a2010.

i bought a retail game for the pc from gamestop a few months ago. the game is fallout new vegas and it said that i had 2 subscribe 2 steam to be able to play it. i subscribed to steam, and downloaded it to my computer, and did every other thing it told me 2 do. i installed the game, and when it was done installing it told me to go to my steam library to play it. i went to my steam library, and it said it was downloading an update. the screen was stuck on update:0% and then it said update suspended. it has been like this for over three months. ive tried everything the other people on the forums have suggested, including uninstalling fallout and reinstalling it, changing my download region, deleting my steam directory, ect. nothing worked and it is extremely frustrating. i even sent a plea to steam user support a month ago and still nothing back. all i want to do is play fallout. if anyone can help me it is greatly appreciated. if this doesnt work i will never use steam again.

I have setup an outlook email for support, thus far I have received and send only 2 emails, but when I tried to log in I have got a message (twice), that is has been used to sent junk. Thinking about it now, I have emails forwarded to, which is marked as spam by many services, could it be the reason?

Recent activity shows only mine logins, but I use a default password, like: Password123.

EDIT: I have moved to Zoho email. This is the third and the last time I gave outlook a chance.

Answer:Why does my outlook account keep being suspended?

Its unfortunate that this message is worded so. I see it a lot as I set up students in my class on Outlook. We've checked and there is no unauthorized use.

I believe what it should say with recent accounts, I know we confirm you were not a robot when you opened account but we would like to check again, please.

This is obviously not the message you want to show seniors and it reinforces their doubts about safety on the Web.

Once you do this validation it is highly unlikely you will see message again, at least that is history with my students and we do about four new email accounts every three months.

Now with Outlook you also have to develop "rep". New accounts that try to send to large distributions seem to draw the verification process more often. (history with one of my students.) With normal use your rep or what seems to be rep develops quickly.

I think the app suspension feature as implemented pretty poorly without the option to disable this behaviour for select apps. I'd like to use the apps but I simply can't seeing that the main programs I use break when they're suspended.

Skype stops all contentions and will rarely give me message notification on new conversation, and while most types of downloads in Chrome will break including streams and sometimes even normal http downloads. If I want to check on another app like Skype or my email I'd like to switch from Chrome and come back hoping my stream be complete or download still working. Instead I have to juggle my apps around to make sure Chrome never leaves the screen for more than 5 seconds or I'll have to start all over

I wouldn't mind if Skype and Chrome were in the background using memory 100% of the time. I know this should be left to the developer to improve the background app functionality, but for the time being is there any way I can prevent suspension?

I would be willing to bet that some scammer is trying to phish you.

Do not phone any phone number you get from an email unless you verify that it is the actual number it says it is. Also do Not let them connect to your computer.
