Application image disappears when moving it around screen

Q: Application image disappears when moving it around screen


The issue I'm having is small, but I still would like it fixed because it's a small pet peeve of mine.

When I move my applications around the window disappears with a gray box around it, until I drop it. I've attached an image of the problem, because it's easier to show than explain.

Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you for your time

Preferred Solution: Application image disappears when moving it around screen

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.)

Hello Xed,

In Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings ....
See if you have "Show window contents while dragging" checked.
If it is not checked, check it and see if that fixes the issue.

This is a 2013 Toshiba Lx835-D325 all-in-one with a 3rd generation Intel i7 CPU. Originally had a 2 TB HDD and takes a 180 watt AC adapter.

The screen shows a "no media found" message for 5 seconds when first engaged by attaching the AC adapter plug, then fades back to a black screen. The power button starts the machine but no display image is revealed unless detaching and then re-attaching the power plug. The power button lights and starts the computer but fails to engage a display image. Could it be the power switch? The small power switch board is shown in the last picture.

Problem has just came on today out of nowhere...
It's an old HP desktop PC, 1gb ram, Windows XP SP 2

AVG doesn't find anything and malwarebytes only found a little adware.

It's my otherhalfs parents PC who have been away so i've been using it to check his emails/run his business. PC was fine yesterday but on turning it on today I was greeted by the dialog box saying - "the application or dll is not a valid windows image. please check this against your installation diskette"

This happens with each program I open, it happens on the windows start up screen a couple of times when selecting which user to log in as, then comes up alot when the PC has started up

Hello/ help!
When I download images from the web the longer they display on the screen the more the quality starts to disappear.

You can especially see it along the edges, as you watch the image, after about an hour the image is so grainy that it no longer looks like the original image.

I'm working on a Powerbook with OS x.3 Jaguar, classic mode 9.2.
When working in Photoshop 6 in classic mode, the cursor (tools), disappear over the image, but then reappears outside the image. However, the move tool and the cropping tool act normal.

I've trashed the Photoshop prefs, reset the tools, and re-installed the software. Is there something else I can try to solve this perplexing problem?

Thanks, Mindy

A:Photoshop 6 cursor disappears over image

is it just certain tools that you can't see? eg pen tool or paintbrush? Your paintbrush size might just be so small (eg 1 pixel) and your image so large that you just can't see it, unless you're zoomed in of course. Try upping the size of the tool if so.

Whenever I access a folder containing pictures, the thumbnails for them generate -- and I can actually see them. But this only lasts for a few seconds; the thumbnails get replaced by Vista's generic landscape icon. I'm not sure when this problem started -- at first, I was not bothered by it, since I wasn't working with my photos, so I didn't pay attention to it. But it has persisted for at least a month, in all folders with pictures in them. And I've made sure that the "Show thumbnails" options were set in both "Folder Options" and "Advanced System Settings". Maybe it was from me changing the registry a long time ago? I'm not sure.So, if someone knows a key I could check to turn on/off thumbnails, that would be useful.Or, if you have any other idea how this problem occurred, I'd be really grateful. Thank you!

Two problems, related in timing.

On July 1st, I made some adjustments to my startup config and such, and ever since then I've been having problems where my IE and Windows Media Player freeze for a few seconds when loading (though without interrupting data)

But most important of which is that since that time, my HP Factory Image D:\ drive has disappeared. It never served me any purpose, but it always just sat there in my Hard Disk lists on my Computer screen, and is conspicuous in its absence.

I checked my Disk Management and found that the 12 GB where the "D" drive was had become "Unallocated". Before I did something stupid, I checked to Rescan Drives, and it re-found the Factory Image! From then on, the FACTORY_IMAGE (D shows up in my Computer.

But after a few days I found that it was no longer showing on my Computer window, and realized that after restarting or shutting down my comp, it would always disappear, only to re-appear when I rescan my disks.

What's the problem? What service do I need to restore/fix to stop this from happening?

Somewhat related question: Would getting a whole new motherboard and CPU but retaining the old harddrive end these problems mentioned above or is it something to do solely with my faulty configurations?

A:Adjusted startup: HP Factory Image drive disappears after each restart

My current hard drive setup:

1. 500 GB drive: 2 250 GB partitions: 1st (C) windows 7, program files and some other files, almost full, 2nd (D) files, some apps, almost full too

2. 1TB drive: 1 partion (H) : about 400 GB applications, most of them in one folder, files taking up the remaining space, about 100 GB free space

I have bought a new 1TB drive. I want to move the apps in H to then new one, but keep the files on H. In the future any new apps will be installed in the new drive, and any new files will be put in H. My problem is that since the files I want to move are from applications, some may stop working if moved. Also many shortcuts will break. I want to find a way to keep things working without reinstalling/reconfiguring a lot of apps.

My current plan:
1. connect both drives (H and the new one) to another pc
2. move the apps folder to the new drive
3. connect the new one to the pc, assign letter H
4. connect the old one, let windows assign whatever letter they want

I think this will work since the paths will stay the same (currently the apps on H are at "H:\Games -- Apps\" which should be the same if I do this) I am not sure though.

Can anyone confirm if this will work / suggest a better way?

A:Moving application files to new hdd

As long as the partition with the programs on it gets the same drive letter (H then you should be okay.

Been looking around and I can't find an application that meets my needs.

I have a ton of files in directories and subdirectories that I want to pull out into just one folder so I can mass rename them, but no programs I've seen online will do this, maybe I'm looking in the wrong place? Can someone point me in the right direction?

A:File moving application.

I don't know of a utility for this.
If I had to do it, I'd open two explorer windows, side-by-side and just right-click, drag, and move the files.
Depending on the file names, you might be able to create a batch file with the move command.

Hey, my C:/ Drive has <20MB of space, which is understandable considering it's only a 26gb hard disk. Can anyone explain what I need to do in order to move my Application Data folder to clear up some space? (Appdata is 6gb).

Also, can anyone suggest what else might be eating up the hard disk? I install all my software onto the D:/ Drive so...

A:Moving the Application Data folder

Obviously check your recycle bin is empty, that can take up a fair bit of space. But here are some ways I have found to save space
- check your windows restore points, if you need space you can clear out them, just keep in mind that you wont be able to restore windows if you make a mistake until another restore point is made.
- turn of hibernation mode, windows usually preserves a 500mb chunk for this
- disable east Asian languages if you don't use them, this uses ~200mb of space
- de frag your drive
- windows updates, NET frameworks, and things related often take up a fair bit of space. I disabled updates to save space.

I'm no expert or anything, but those are a few things I have done inthe past to save space with no adverse side effects, but if you do these things, yourtaking the risk ( not that I think there is any, but just to be safe). As for moving the app data folder, wouldn't have a clue sorry.

I'm finalizing my move from an old Windows 7 computer to a new 8.1 one. Unfortunately Windows Easy Transfer no longer transfers settings - which worked flawlessly when moving from XP to 7 - only user files. As recommended by Microsoft I used PCMover (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/transfer-your-data),
but the offered edition doesn't allow for choosing which user settings are to be transfered - it chooses by itself and omits a lot (confirmed with a log and with Laplink's customer service).
Hence I'd like to archive all the application data/settings in order to use it in case I will need it when (re-)installing a piece of software on my new computer (and I use a lot of programs). Could you enlighten me on all locations where application data
is stored? It's not only AppData for sure (cf. here, for example: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=840657).

My boss gave me a CD containing an image she wants me to use both on our web site and in our next monthly newsletter. Normally, I can just go into the admin area for our site and upload the image directly from the CD; once I've done that, the URL becomes its location and I can easily place it anywhere I need to on the site or in an html email. This time, the image is a pdf file and it is *huge*.

Since the admin site only supports '.jpg', '.gif', '.swf' and '.css' files, I copied and pasted the image into FrontPage and converted it to a '.gif', as well as resizing it. My problem now is how the heck do I get it onto the admin site?
(None of us have CD burners.)

What i need help with is How can i move my factory image over to my SSD so i can restore my computer if i need it later on. I have the Windows 7 CD but no driver's or anything else. If any other information is needed please say so and i will post it. What i want to do is something like this... install windows 7 from CD onto my SSD then use the Factory image and restore it back to factory settings so i get all the driver's and Utilities also also.

A:Moving Factory image from HDD to new SSD

Follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Otherwise you can try shrinking the Win7 partition to get it as small as possible so it will fit onto the SSD, then save externally a backup image to use to reimage to the SSD:

System Image Recovery

Another option is to clone the HD to SSD using Acronis premium cloning app which comes free if you have any WD or Seagate HD in the mix.

Finally read over these steps to give you more options: SSD - Install and transfer the Operating System

I have 2 Windows XP machines. I am trying to consolidate them into one computer. The older machine has several programs that I want to keep and would not be able to re-install on the newer model. The newer model is HP Media Center m1160m. I have that machine set up as dual boot into either XP or Win 7. If this works, I would replace the other XP image with this one. I used a Windows imaging software (GImageX) to copy the old image and loaded it onto a spare hard drive for the second machine. I then tried to boot off of that HDD but it did not boot, asking me to install a system disk.

I believe that the image copied correctly. I have not tried using a system disk to rebuild the new image, as I have heard it can be quite time consuming and it would take XP back to the original install system version (SP 1).

I am looking for any other alternatives that may be available. I have the original Windows disk and will try to repair the image I copied, if I find no other options.

If there is something I am doing that is not legit, let me know. Thanks.

Plagued by the "calculating time to copy." messages and demoralizing advices of "time to copy 4 days 6 hours........", I stumbled onto a cute little free program called Teracopy V2.0 Beta for Vista and it is beyond brilliant!!

After installation, it asks if you want to make it the default copier etc. and in a trial I was able to move some 750 Mbs in ..... wait for it ............ seven (7) seconds!!

It automatically pops up when you block 'n drag to a folder or you can also drag contents to it's simple menu.

In my VBA project (in Excel 2010) I have found strange cursor behavior, the same as Chris_E described for Access here:

This thread is intended just for info for those who register the same rare problem.

In my case I've found the problem was caused by using Application.OnTime event.
I am using this event for displaying time on UserForm. If showing the time is "Off", the event don't fire and everything is normal. But if I've set showing "On", the cursor in VBE moves to the last character in actual line of code ignoring space and behave as shown here:

The behavior is noticeable even during runtime: in TextBox control the mouse cursor changes from default (fmMousePointerIBeam) to Arrow as soon as the scheduled time is reached (in my case every 1 second).

Here is my piece of code:
' ShowTime_Work is global Boolean variable
Sub Time_Work()
' will show actual time in UserForm frmWork
' more info on [URL]http://www.cpearson.com/excel/OnTime.aspx[/URL]
If ShowTime_Work = True Then
Application.OnTime Time + TimeValue("00:00:01"), "Time_Work"

End If
End Sub

Good Luck!

( hope this makes sense.)
looking at the backups
{i see the main machine has 95Gigs as an image file and 137gigs of data, and the updated machine has a 235 mb as an image and 8gigs of data}. what i am trying to do is move both images to a location where they will be safe,

Welcome to the forum,

That is a pretty large backup to use DVD's, you should really invest in an external hard drive.

DVD's are not a reliable backup method, you are going to need a lot of DVD's and they don't always restore successfully.

I currently have my C: partition for my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit OS on a SATA drive and will soon be installing a SAS drive to use for that partition instead. I do daily complete image backups of the system partition with Acronis True Image and I am hoping that I can simply reload the saved disk image onto the new disk without any problems. I have done it many times with SATA-to-SATA reinstalls but I am concerned there may be problems because of the hardware IDs (or something similar?) moving to a different kind of disk hardware device.

Can anyone tell me if this should work? I don't really like the prospect of having to do a complete re-install of the OS

It should work without problems, provided that the SAS drive is bootable, and Windows (on the most recent image you have made) is equipped with the necessary bott driver for said device, if needed.

BEst to make a new image immediately prior to the switch, then when you have restored the image to the SAS drive, remove the sata drive, and attempt to boot from it...

I currently have one drive that contains a System Reserved partition (which includes the boot files). The status is System, Active, Primary Partition.
I have another drive with the C: partition. The status is Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition.
I've been told that if I remove the disk (it's a bit flaky) with the System Reserved partition, I won't be able to boot up. If this is true, is it possible to transfer that partition to another drive? If so, does it have to be at the start of the drive?
Alternatively, can I make the C: partition include System status?

I would also move the remaining hard drive to the SATA 1 slot so it appears as the first drive in bios. Boot from the Macrium Reflect Free rescue disk/USB and under the restore menu will be an option to fix startup problems. You can use that to recreate the boot files right on the C: drive partition.

If it works (and it should), then you can put the second hard drive back in, delete all the partitions and reformat the whole thing.

If it fails for some reason, just reconnect the old hard drive, set it as the boot drive in bios, and you are back in business like you were before.

An alternate method would be to install MiniTool Partition Wizard Free. You can use that to shrink your C: drive partition enough to create empty space and then copy the system reserved partition over. It does not have to be at the front of the hard drive, but does have to be set as the active partition.

I have this page with an image & two text fields for the user to put in new width and height for the image(it changes dynamically on losing focus from one of the fields using "onBlur"). below this there's a submit button that calculates prices based on the size the user has set and shows it in a table.
Now here's the problem: no matter where i put the image in the page, if i put values that are very far from the existing value (like putting 300 instead of 10 in the width field), the button changes its place before i can click on it because of the image resizing, and so i need to click the button twice. any idea what can i do?

I have recently moved the location of my OneDrive folder to the D: drive.

When I use "Windows Backup and Restore (Windows 7)" to create a system image I get the following message prior to completion:

Backup skipped backing up D:\OneDrive\Documents as it is on the backup target.

Is this because for some reason the D: drive is now being included in the system image?
If so, how do I stop it?

Any help appreciated.

I have a HP HPE-210f with a factory 1TB HDD.
I just installed an Intel 320 series 80GB HDD to move my OS over to.
My first attempt to copy disk0 to disk1 failed because there was not enough space on the target disk. This is a new PC with harldy any downloads on it.

I moved 6GB off to my USB HDD and then retried and it worked. I was totally shocked that 80GB was right on the edge of capacity to move the OS over to.

It looks like I could free up some space on my boot disk if I were able to move the Factory Image partition over to the old 1TB drive (it's actually still there since I copied it over to the SSD).

Can I delete the FACTORY_IMAGE partition form my SSD and have Windows 7 Home Premium point to the FACTORY_IMAGE partition on the 1TB non-boot drive?

Any other tips to skinny down the SSD drive?


A:Moving Factory Image Partition, shrinking boot disk size

It may be better if you post a full picture of your Disk management so that we see what the situation is.

There is absolutely no need to transfer the recovery partition to the SSD. But I would make a recovery disk from it (type recovery into start/search and the recovery disc creator will show up).

Before you redo the OS transfer, you should do 3 things:

1. Create a data partition on your big HDD and move all the user folders (Documents, Pictures, etc.) Here is how.

2. Create an aligned partition on the SSD. If the SSD is not aligned, you will have a serious performance degradation - up to 300%. Here is how. Since you now already have stuff on the SSD, add a Clean command. So your commands look like this:

List disk
Select disk n (where n is the number that was given for your SSD in List disk)
Create partition primary align=1024
Active (assuming you want to install an OS)

3. If you have the 100MB active partition, move the bootmgr to C. Do that whilst booted from the big HDD. Then you can ignore that 100MB partition and move only C to the SSD. Here is how.

If you have questions, post back.

PS: Once you have C on the SSD, there are a few other tricks how to reduce the size of C. Ask for that when you have the OS on the SSD.

Hi, I am working on an Acer Aspire, Pentium D, Vista, 2GB ram. After about 45 minutes, the screen blanks out. Have to reboot to get it going again. I ran Malwarebytes, it found 19 errors. I thought this might have solved the problem, but no. I also then changed monitors, but the problem is still there. I cleaned out the case, the 2 motors were really clogged up, I thought it might be heat related. Then I ran a memory test and it stopped working again. It has 2 memory chips, I have removed one and am running the memory test again. Am I going in the right direction? Or is there any other ideas?

For the past few weeks now everytime I click on any program to open i get a pop up that says "The application or DLL c:\WINDOWS\system32\vavewoza.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette"

i've basically been trying to ignore this b/c all I have to do is hit ok a bunch of times and I can get on with what I need to, but its becoming increasingly annoying and it interrupts programs sometimes. I can't find my disks that came with my laptop (dell inspiron 6400) to try and reinstall or whatever would happen.

Please ensure you have up to date antivirus software installed and run a full scan. This should help you a bit. If you are still having issues after that i recommend clicking on report in the bottom right of your post and requesting this thread be moved to the malware removal forum.
