Q: Windows 8 Auto Start

I installed Windows 8 on a partition, how do I get back to my previously installed windows 7?

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Auto Start

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.)

A: Windows 8 Auto Start

Windows 8 should automatically create a boot selection screen. Then you just select the other OS to boot into that instead of Windows 8.

I use Windows ME as my OS. When working offline, on occasion ME will start to connect to the internet automatically, in other words I do not have to click OE or IE. I can be working away in word and all of a sudden I am connected to the internet. Once it connected to the internet while the screensaver was operating. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure if i should have asked this in the apps forum or this one... I have a couple of programs on my computer like steam, Windows Messenger, skype, and a few others that like to start immediately when i start my computer. The problem is that i only use these programs every once in a while, and i would prefer it if i could just start them manually when i wanted to use them. I looked through the options and settings in a couple of places, but didn't see anywhere to turn off the auto-start. Is it something i have to do in the registry?

Hi

Skype on 8.1 is driving me bonkers. When I look in the task manager->start up its not listed.

However, I then get messages and calls - so it must be running

Of course, with the tile version there are no settings that I can find to turn the darn thing off and it doesn't appear in the system tray.

How can I please take control over skype so that it launches when I want it to?

Thanks

You could uninstall the Windows 8 app (right click on the start screen select Uninstall) and download the desktop version if you prefer. Download Skype for Windows

Well, this is kind of an oddball situation (and somewhat minor) but any suggestions or comments would be welcome!

Since upgrading to XP SP2 I've got a stubborn program ("CoolTabs") that sometimes fails to start with Windows. It's startup specs are pretty much routine (Path: c:\program files\cooltabs\cooltabs.exe) / Location: Startup Folder). It's hard to imagine that SP2 is at fault yet prior to the upgrade I never had any problems... I'm baffled!

Thanks,

Hi. I'm new to this forum, and need help! Yesterday the latest Vista updates were downloaded to my computer. I didn't restart my computer after the updates were downloaded. When I turned on my laptop this morning, the Startup Repair window comes up because windows failed to start. I've run the repair several times, and it's unable to repair.
It lists the following problem details:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepariV2
Problem Signature 01: AutoFailover

So, I see that part (if not all) of the problem is bad drivers. Why is this so and how can I fix it? I have a Gateway M-Series laptop (about 10 months old). Thanks!

Hello,

I've been having trouble with my Vista home premium pc.

I downloaded the service pack 2 for vista. I only ran a fix (not sure what the fix was) to get rid of something that kept showing up on my anti virus software.

Anyways while the fix was working it restarted my computer. The service pack installed 2 of 3. After it installed 2 it started again presenting me with my problem.

The windows recovery screen shows up and gives me the option of starting normally of running the automatic repair. I've tried the auto repair and it doesnt work. I went onto the advanced options after that which gives me the option of system restore, command prompt, complete restore.

System restore doesnt work as it says no restore point has been created.

I've tried going into safe mode and that doesnt work. Last known configuration also doesnt work. I really dont know what to do and REALLY dont want to lose my files again!.

If anyone could help i'd be much appreciated. I've been without the pc for about a week now and didnt realise how much i rely on it.

Thanks again in advance.

Hi

I'm hoping someone can find an answer to my vista problems. It's on a Compaq (HP) CQ60 laptop with Home Premium.

1. My low battery alerts don't work properly. I have it set to alert me of low battery at 12% ish and then hibernate at 7%. I have only ever seen the low alert once I think so it just hibernates with no warning. I get the low battery warning triangle on the battery tray icon but no pop ups. Also there is no 'Time Remaining' just a percentage but I think this is a problem that doesn't have a solution.

2. Occasionally my start bar (which I always have set to auto hide) stops hiding. It sits on top of the status bars of my programs and is really annoying. I can't seem to see any pttern to why/when it does it. Sometimes turning off auto hide and then turning it back on will fix it but this doesn't always work.

3. After resuming from sleep MSN/Windows Live won't work. It is still running but it logs me out and won't log back in. It's effectively a dead window that looks like it's running but no buttons work. Only way to get it back is kill it in task manager & restart it.

Hope someone can come up with some ideas?

Thanks a lot

Major network problems

Been scouring the web for the NativeWifi Filter drivers for windows 7

Cannot start my WLAN Auto Config Service due to NativeWifi Filter not installed/unable to start

It keeps giving me an error saying that it doesn't exist so I restarted and now it's not even listed in the non plug-and-play section in device manager with hidden devices shown

had no problem starting up NDIS Usermode I/O Portal as per advice in other threads where it is stated to start BOTH NDIS Usermode etc. AND NativeWifi Filter

But mine has somehow disappeared from the list and would not start before that point

It was a code 24 IIRC "The device is not present, is nor not working properly or does not have all its drivers installed" - pulled that from another service that does not work

Qos Packet Scheduler is also not functioning (where I got the error from which is the same as I WAS getting with NativeWifi Filter)

If anyone has the drivers to either of these that would be greatly appreciated as I cannot use the net on my computer, so am using my brothers for anything internet related atm

Cheers =)

I have disabled every type of auto run / auto play I can find, but if Windows Media Player is open and I insert a flash drive, CD, or DVD, whatever I'm playing is interrupted by what was inserted even if it's not media.

I have Word 2002, SP3, for Windows Office XP Pro.

My problem is I want to permanently turn OFF the autocorrect options (all of them: correct initial capitals, correct first letters of days, etc etc, autoformat, as well as auto text and auto type).

Yes, I have unchecked all the boxes in Tools > Autocorrect Options, the problem is I have to painstakingly go though all the boxes every time I open Word and uncheck them. My setups are not remembered.

I can't figure out how to make these options stay set this way.

I've tried installing the Office Resource Kit and setting a system policy (though I am the only user on this PC), but no success.

I had to rebuild my system a month ago -- before that, I never had any problems, Word seemed to remember exactly my preferred set up and saved autocorrect options etc to the normal template.

I checked the normal template and it is in Doc Settings folder where it should be.

I searched the forums and Word help but can't seem to find any advice, mainly because most people usually run these options and they only wish to modify the instances where they apply, rather than permanently disable them.

Please help! Much appreciated! Thanks!

My CD Rom won't auto start!! A simple query I think. I am new to the set up systems and cannot get the CD drive to auto run when a disk is inserted. The Hardware profile and 'My Compter' links offer a range of startup options but it refuses to cooperate! Any ideas??
 

A:My CD Rom won't auto start!!

All discs, or just a certain type? Auto Insert Notification is enabled by default, but only for discs with Autoplay features. In XP, right click the drive and drag to Properties-->Autoplay and select the appropriate action in the supplied field. In Win9.x/Me, just right click the cd-rom drive in Device Manager-->Properties-->Settings and click the checkbox. In Win2kPro, to disable/enable, Start-->Run-->gpedit.msc. Under Computer Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->System, there is the option to disable, or enable (if its disabled).

That said, you may be referring to file associations, like what program opens when a audio disc, DVD, etc is inserted. In XP, its stated above. In Win2k, you can change this by right-clicking My Computer, drag to Explore. Then drag to Tools-->Folder Options-->File Types. Now, depending on what file is opening, the association to the needed program to run is listed below. Just highlight the file, and either confirm the change, or choose another program to run. HTH!

Hello Everyone.
 
I work on a variety of CNC ( Computerized Numerical Control) production machines.
 
I have a Windows PC based CNC machine which has Windows XP running as the platform.
 
Originally when the main power was switched on to the CNC machine the PC automatically started to boot up.
 
No changes have been made to my knowledge but now the PC has to be started separately! This may not sound like a big problem but accessing it in the control panel of the machine every day is a bit of a bind.
 
Is there a setting in Windows XP which will automatically boot the computer when mains power is applied to the CNC machine?
 
I would be grateful of any help.
 
Many Thanks

A:XP auto start with power on.

I would think...that a conversation is in order with whomever initially set the NC devices up...I would not assume that you can treat those kinds of tools...like some of us treat our PCs .

There is one file in the camera software folder that starts a process for the auto transfer. When I run this program, a new process is added and the camera auto transfer starts when the canera is attached to the USB.

What are the steps to add the file to the auto-start/ auto-run at boot? Apparently something removed this file from the auto-start/auto run list.

I have WIN XP PRO service pack 2.

Thanks, krazykat

Hi, I have a Lenovo 3000 J200 desktop that I'm using as a file server. Currently I have to physically press the start button after a power failure, before the system will boot. This isn't much help if the power dips in the night or when I'm away.. Is there a setting in the BIOS or similar that I can set to automatically boot up when power is restored to the box? Many thanks Adrian

Too bad no one offered a solution.  I tried to use the "Wake on Event" to have the PC boot itself, but the only option is a one-time event.  This is an unacceptable oversight on Lenovo's part.  Missing is the option to have this a recurring event such as every day.  Others report the same frustration.  I have this H3 PC in a remote location 1200 miles away, and when AC power loss occurs, I have to travel a great distance just to push the power button.

A couple of weeks ago my computer started doing the weirdest thing, as Windows is booting, specifically, as the Windows XP logo is being played with progress bar scrolling below on black background, my printer (HP 932C) would try to start printing. It rolls in one sheet of paper half way, and stops with the error light flashing. Windows boots up otherwise as normal.

Usually if I press the error (retry) button, it will finish printing that page, with just a character similar to "┐" on the top left corner.

If I don't press the error button, after about 5 minutes once Windows is booted up, it'll automatically retry and finish the print.

It doesn't this EVERYTIME windows boots up.

If I turn off the printer then boot up completely then turn on the printer, it still prints the same thing.

If I boot Windows in safe mode, it still does the same thing, right after it says "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\System32\DRIVERS\JGOGO.sys".

Please help, thanks in advance!

I want to be able to run anti virus and spyware killer and diskeeper on the kids pc but they never remember to do it and I dont have the time to do it . My question sence I can program a time for anti virus and spyware and diskeeper to run is there a way to turn on the pc and shut it off at certain time? Can you do it from Hibernation or standby?
 

A:Auto start up and shut down?

The BIOS may have an "Alarm Clock" setting that can power on the PC at a specified time. That should also bring it out of hibernation.
Turning it off again could be tricky. AVG 7.5 can be set to turn off when it finishes scanning, but that has to be manually checked after the scan starts.
Easiest way is to have a batch file check to see if the scans have completed by checking to see if the AntiVirus/Spyware/diskkeeper processes are still running. When the processes stop, then shutdown the PC.

You could also just have it shutdown at a specific time, but the scans may not be finished.

If the software creates a scheduled task job in the Scheduled Task folder (Control Panel | Scheduled tasks) there is a setting to Wake the Computer to run the task. Right click the task, goto the Settings tab and check the box.

Otherwise, you'd have to check each program to see if it has an option to wake the PC, or bring it out of standby.

I've never experience this before. For some reason my Computer running XP will start up 15 to 20 min. after I have turned the computer off. Any suggestions.
 

A:Auto start after shutting down

Go into your bios and disable all the auto power-on settings.

I would also do some virus scans to rule that out, and post a hijackthis logfile for the pros on this site to have a look over.

When I reboot the computer, after windows XP logs in, I get a windows installer automatically starting for word perfect 12 (whch was already installed) and every time I cancel it, it starts again. After about 8 times it stops. Then it trys it for another program called sonic, (which is also already installed) and I have to cancel it like 8 times. It slows down the start up significantly, and may be the case of other problems.

All pictures, gif's, jpg's, any form of an image online, shows up as a pink box. All pics that are on the pc are fine, but online, even the google sign is a pink box.

Every once in a while when online, a empty Internet Explorer window shows up. No address bar or anything. Just a window labeled I.Explorer and thats it.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
