  6. I am using systweak antivirus. It is best and fulfilled my requirements. It is very cheap and everybody can afford. Its one month trial version is free. It has three modes of scan, deep scan, quick scan and, custom scan.
  7. For the last few months I hvw had this problem. While in Microsoft Edge and sometimes in Firefox when I go to switch tabs nothing happens until I bring up the Task manager with Ctrl+Alt+Del. This dosen't happen all the time, but probably 75% of the time. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this behavior? I am running Windows 10 PRO Version 20H2

I download the software to my computer.....hit the executable.... the computer thinks a few seconds ...... then a message comes up saying the software I am trying to install is not a Microsoft certified app and I should go to Microsoft store to install it from there. It does not exist on their store. It has happened with 2 different software.s....one being DXO Nik Collection. Any ideas why this is happening???? Thanks, Gil
  9. Hi Philis1983. Did you ever find a solution? I have the exact same problem on an old HP Pavilion. No error messages, just 'installation failed'. I've tried a complete re-installation of win8.1 and deleted all user data and 3rd Party apps (except the HP tools). I've also tried a clean reboot with the hp startup programs disabled. Same result each time.
  10. Thanks a lot it seems it fixed my problem ! I'll see tomorrow if the black screen doesn't show up ^^ (If it's all good I put "mark as solution" on your first message to close the topic ? Thanks again =D)
  11. Sorry, made a mistake in the in the system file check option 2. The line 'After you press enter...' should read 'After you press enter wait until the 'dism.exe' run has finished then type....
  12. Thanks a lot for your help, I'll try this tomorrow
  13. This problem can have several causes. (1) Normally, when windows takes a long time to startup it’s an indication that it’s struggling to load something. This could be a piece of software, but can usually be attributed to hardware; especially a hard drive. The drive could be faulty or incompatible with the port it’s connected too. For instance a Sata 1/2 connected to a Sata 3 port. You should check all you’re hardware to ensure it’s not faulty. These types of problems do not show in ‘Device manager’. (2) Try a system check. Open the Command Prompt (Admin) type:- dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth (press spacebar after each entry) Press Enter. After you press enter type:- sfc /scannow (press spacebar after each entry) (3) Try running your computer in ‘Verbose’ mode The ‘Verbose’ option should only be used for troubleshooting. If you suspect some process or App is delaying your computer from booting up shutting down or restarting then implement the ‘Verbose’ option. With this option activated you’ll be able to see what processes are involved in boot up shutdown and restart. Hopefully you’ll be able to isolate, (Usually an App or process halting or stuttering through) the App or process, causing the problem and deal with it. Once fixed, disable the ‘Verbose’ option as it has no value running on a healthy computer. There are two ways to activate this option in Windows 10, one with a ‘Registry fix’ and the other through ‘Local Group Policy Editor’. However, before you activate this option, keep in mind; if the problem is not ‘Startup’ or ‘Shutdown’ related, the ‘Verbose’ option may appear inactive or you may only get a fleeting glimpse of the processes, and if you have an SSD drive, blink and you’ll miss it! Local Group Policy Editor Key Win + r, Type, gpedit.msc, click OK Path: -Computer Config…\Administrative Templates\System Once the ‘Local Group Policy Editor’ is open, use the ‘Path’ above to navigate your way to the ’System Folder’. Select it and in the main pane scroll down to find the entry, ’Display highly detailed...’ ‘Double click’ it, or right click and select ‘Edit’. In the ‘status messages’ page select ‘Enable’ Click ‘Apply’, ‘OK’ Registry Fix Key Win + r, Type, regedit, click OK Path: - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System Using the path above, navigate your way to the ‘System’ folder. ‘Right click’ the ‘System’, folder select ‘New’ then click, ‘DWORD (32-bit) Value’. In the main pane rename the ‘New Value#1’ to ‘VerboseStatus’. Once renamed, ‘double click’ it or ’Right click’ it and select ’Modify.’ In the ‘Value data’ box change the ‘0’ to ‘1’. Click OK. Close the registry. The new setting takes effect immediately.
  14. Hi ! I have a problem with my windows 10 : since a week or two, when I start my computer for the first time of the day, the login animation is long, and then I have a black screen with my cursor (and sometimes Nvidia Broadcast opened ??). I check online and tried almost every solutions (restarting explorer.exe, checking registries, uninstalling last quality update, launching into safe mode then restarting, etc) and it was working, but it's quite annoying to try all these every morning... So I came here to ask if someone know how I can fix this problem for real, thanks in advance ! (Sorry for my English I'm French ^^)
  15. 2 days later and still no-one bytes (sorry, I mean bites LOL). Well, the 'improved' cable was delivered this morning. I do now occasionally get a picture on the HMD but it usually only lasts a few seconds before disconnecting again - while at the same time dislplaying "Input is currently being directed to the Desktop and not the Head Mounted Display. Press Win+Y to switch back" - pressing Win+Y does not help. Tracking seems to be working OK tho, as movement of the headset is mirrored in the WMR desktop screen, yet without anything displaying in the headset. Audio is being piped through the headset speakers correctly. I have tried using the USB 'C' socket and 2 USB 'A' sockets using the supplied adapter. It is currently plugged into a USB 'A' socket marked 'VR Ready' (which makes no difference). There are 3 DP slots on the 3080 Ti and I have tried them all. Google searches have not found anything relevant. I guess this all means that I am now on my own and stuck with a very very expensive paperweight. Probably can't even sell it - as soon as buyer asks what's the reason for selling, I will say cos it don't work, and therefore no sale. Thanks to everyone for your help. I am now going to go and drown myself in tears. Stupid computers, sent by the devil to drive us insane...
  16. Well, 24 hours later and not a single bite! Maybe no-one has a clue as to an answer. Maybe no-one has even visited for a read! Maybe Santa is real?

Now restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. 5. Type Exit in the Command Prompt to close it and then restart the computer. This will help you... Cheers..
  22. You say "some programs" does that mean "not all"? Can you create files there in explorer for example? Are you replacing files that might be in use? Maybe the disk is corrupted and you need to check and fix it (https://www.alphr.com/fix-hard-drives-chkdsk-windows-10/)?
  23. Many appologies if in the wrong department, but a search found nothing suitable. I have an HP Reverb G2. It was working fine for about 4 months. Then I stopped getting power to the headset (although the power light was on the connector block). A long chat with HP Support and trying a number of checks and fixes, they then decided to replace the headset (8 months left on the guarantee). When it arrived (jolly quick I might add), I eagerly plugged it in, got the 'Activity' light on the front to illuminate and after a min I could feel it getting warm. BUT. Every time I run the WMR Portal, I get a mixture of 3 different messages:- "Getting things ready" (looping) / "The headset is sleeping - WAKE UP" / "Input is currently being directed to the Desktop and not the Head Mounted Display. Press Win+Y to swith it back". Trying to click the WAKEUP button does nothing. Pressing Win+Y does nothing. Another chat with HP and another run through the usual checks and fixes achieves nothing (Getting expensive these phone calls!), so this time they are going to send me an uprated cable - when they get some back in stock. Personally I have my doubts that this will fix the problem, so while I am waiting (and still trying anything that I can think of) I thought I would put out some feelers and see if I get any luck from a very knowledgeable person out there somewhere. At the moment tho' I am sitting here looking at a very expensive paperweight (£649.00 UK!! Daughter says that I am completely bonkers.). It seems to me that either the PC or Windows or Graphics Card is somehow stopping any video signal from being sent to the head display. I find it hard to believe that a cable connection could just suddenly break(?). i5 9600K OC'd to 4.8 GHz / 32 GB Corsair Vengeance RAM / RTX 3080 Ti (Yep, I paid through the nose for that as well!) / RM850 (Gold) PSU. Everything software wise is updated, inc Winwows 10 Pro. Interestingly, the 'Perception Simulation Headset' driver (Device Manager) is dated 2006 - 15 years old! - but it informs me that I have the latest drivers!?
  24. due to some reasons my windows got corrupted due to which i did a flash on my computer and moved to windows 10 pro via flash drive , my c drive has been renamed as CCOMA_X64FRE_EN-GB after that i was unable to shut down my laptop so i need to go back to windows 10 home without losing data , is there any way , please help me
  25. i did a total backup of my windows 10 puter on a USB - glad I did as the hard drive went corrupt. I loaded my backup and all my photos were grouped into hundreds of folders that i have to open one at a time . i can't get any previews of pics except till i open folder then the individual jpg file. whereas before backup All pics showed as open so i could see them all at first opening. any help on this would be greatly appreciated
  26. I recently switched to Office 365 and One Dive as a means of creating, storing and accessing a set of common Office files from at least two different computers (additional access from my iPhone and iPad looked like a bonus), I could not understand why a document I updated on one computer did not contain those updates when I opened it on another. It took a while to figure out that OneDrive automatically downloaded a file when you opened it and it remained there on the local computer while ever it displayed a tick rather than a cloud icon alongside it in the OneDrive directory. I overcome the problem now by right-clicking on the tick icon and choosing Free up space which apparently uploads the file to the cloud and removes it locally/. If there is an easier way to have the file exclusively on the cloud and be able to work on it there I would love to know about it. I have discovered you can access OneDrive via a browser and work on it via the browser. However, my preference would be to use Office 365 whenever i am using either of my computers to update documents. My problem at the moment is that documents open in Office 365 as Read-only and I have know idea why nor how to stop them doing it? I envy you guys who have all this at your fingertips. Please help me if you can.
