Windows 10 can't uninstall power manager or fingerprint manager

Q: Windows 10 can't uninstall power manager or fingerprint manager

Hello. I'm having issues with my t450S not being able to go in to sleep mode. Everything I've read says that these two programs have major issues with Windows 10 and could be the source of my problem. I go to uninstall and it says that the program can't run on this version of Windows. Ok, so I have tried many of the solutions offered in this forum and nothing has worked thus far: * c:\swtools\readyapps\pwrmgrv\setup.exe -l0x9 -AddRemove* change compatibility mode of programs and try then* straight up add/remove button Please let me know what I can do to get these off my system (without reverting back to Windows 7). Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 can't uninstall power manager or fingerprint manager

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.)

Is a fingerprint login good for a home pc? Is it as save as a password or safer?

I am thinking about buying this

I Think its a cool gadget to have for my Desktop but im not sure if its a good idea. Please comment on what you think about them and if any of you have them please post what kind you have and price also were you bought it. Thank you! - jesse

A:Fingerprint Privacy Manager

First I'll say I have never used one.
A biometric login device should be a lot safer than typed characters....should be. I have read one can breathe on one closely which causes the last fingerprint to be visible to the device by causing the print to hold moisture temorarily.

I suppose if one wiped the detector clean after each use it would be safe.

Having all sort of issues with a brand new ProBook 470 G3. Just bought the laptop, and it came with Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro.Tried to install Windows 10, it asked to remove HP Client Security Manager as it's not compatible. CSM said to unistall Drive Encryption, which you can't unless you disable CSM!!I was able to log in to CSM but all the sudden, I'm getting the DPFPApi Error and entering password just says out of range or something along those lines.Have tried, - installing/repairing windows 7, it goes to the blue error screen upon restart.- Repairing both Client Security Manager and hard drives goes no where.- Cannot remove windows password from the control panel as it says cannot remove as policies require it (CSM).Brand new laptop and I'm about to throw it out the window... someone help please.

A:Windows 7 to 10 - Client Security Manager uninstall and Hard...

I am so over my head but I have managed to gain access to Client Security Manager... gives errors every now and then but at least I get in....I will share details below of what worked as a lot of people seem to have this issue. BUT what I need to know now is how to disable the client security mgr SO I can uninstall drive encryption SO i can uninstall Client security manager...!! GO Figure what the heck HP was thinking with this loop. What I did was follow what these two sites suggested https://support.software.dell.com/enterprise-reporter/kb/116792 https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754820(v=ws.11).aspx in combination with what redlofredlof suggested in this thread (top post on page 2) regarding "start" ing Digital Persona Service... I also set it actions to "restart service" in the "recovery tap" so it restarts every time it fails (within few seconds of working)... SO as soon as I got the DPFPApi error, I closed CSM, opened service, found the digital persona setting and pressed start... did not log out or anything after. I just opened the CSM back up and no more DPFPApi error.THat's about the time I got the RPC service is unavailable error, which I fixed by looks of it by following those two links above. HOpe this helps someone.One step closer... not much progress... as I still dont know how to remove this darn CSM/encryption so I can install the Windows 10 :/

Hi!
After searching a long time, I still found no solution or hint about getting the MS Keyboard with Fingerprint Reader to work. Although the driver installs fine, the DigitalPersona Password Manager software won't install. What am I supposed to do now? Is there any chance to get the device to work with Windows Vista? Are there any plans at MS to support this feature in the near future? Maybe there is another software on the market? Anybody has a clue?
Thanks in advance!

Hello all,

I am been trying to fix an issue on my girlfriend's computer. Ever since I removed a malware infection she had, the computer was doing the following: taskbar turns grey and internet stops working. Thinking this was still a malware issue, I posted in that section of the website (see link below). I have since been cleared of malware, but we have determined that the issue is related to the Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager and WLAN AutoConfig, both of which are set to start to automatically start when booting, but seem to be crashing. My taskbar goes back to normal and the internet works once I manually start these services.

Hello

So basically my windows Aero theme is not working. I can change to different themes and they change the background and sounds but I cannot change the color of my windows color. When I click on the "Window Color" from the Personalization option in Task Manager it does not give me the regular option to change the window color and transparency. I get a pop-out screen that says "Window Color and Appearance" and changing the color from there does not do anything.

I have read other places and tried to restart the "Themes" option in the Services.exe but that does not help. Both the "Themes" and "Desktop Windows Manager" are started and run from the startup. However when I restart the "Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager" it fixes the problem only for a couple of seconds but reverts back to the broken problem. The color will change to what it's suppose to be but change right back.

I have a AMD Sapphire 7950 video card so I know it supports w/e features Windows has. I have the latest drivers from AMD and everything else works fine but this problem has persisted for a while now. Is this a hardware problem?

Also:
This only happens when I startup my computer. If I restart my computer after I see that the problem is there then the problem will be fixed and the Aero Theme is fine.

Please advise on what I can do to fix this problem.

Hello, I'm at a loss and afraid I've lost all my files.   Every time I restarted my computer I kept getting the Windows Boot Manager error message: Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data. However, after googling and trying numerous methods to repair this, I now keep getting prompted with the Windows Recovery Manager.  I assumed that choosing the default factory restore option would prompt me with a back up option, but it didn't and proceeded to reformat.  I quickly shut my computer down. I don't know what to do next because now all I get is the Windows Recovery Manager option. Any help would be much appreciated!

A:Windows Boot Manager Error / Windows Recovery Manager Issue

If this string of events actually did start to reformat the drive, it might still be recoverable.  I would boot the computer to an independent OS IE: Linux Live on a CD or DVD and then look at the drive.  Then use that to copy your data to another drive.  Once the data is saved, then do whatever you want with this corrupted drive.  Do not try to continue with any other operations until the data is saved elsewhere.Since this PC came with Vista, once the data is saved, you could try the HP REcovery Manager to restore the original OS. Or just start over this a new install of windows 7

Hey guys and gals, The sensor had been hit or miss from day one, when it worked it would sometimes take 3 presses before registering correctly. I've been using these kinds of sensors for years on my phones so I was suprised at how much effort it took to get it to work. It often wasn't avaliable to me when the laptop came out of sleep mode, or if the screen had been locked.  One day last month it stopped working completely. It isn't being detected at all in the device manager, unless it's under a differnt name now. I tried restoring from factory and seeing if I could get it back. After running all the Windows, driver, and firmware updates, it's still not present in the device manager. I went in the BIOS and checked to see that the fingerprint sensor was enabled. It was, and then I tried to delete any fingerprint data, but there wasn't any. So I'm wondering, has anyone else has had a similar issue and if there's a way I can fix this without having to RMA my otherwise kickass laptop?  Maybe the senseor is loose? Should I open her up and make sure everything's tight? I haven't unbuckled any of her fasteners yet, but if it could save me a month of being computerless while she's in the shop, I'll gladly try it.   Cheers

Hello, I had the Power Manager from the windows store and it was working fine until today. Today, I decided to reset windows to refresh my system (there was nothing wrong with it), Now, I install the power manager and it gives me the picture attached here:

Unfortunately, when I hit no, the program closes. If i select yes, I can only view the battery's life and not the ability to set max charge or minimum charge or adaptive  charge etc. If I try to download this same program off of Dell's website (which is compatible with 7577 NOT 7567 for whatever reason) it won't let me. The easy fix is to of course find the DPM component service but I cannot find that anywhere!! So any help will be appreciated. This is a big pretty deal, as I made an account just for this reason. I find the  dell power manager very helpful and love the program, but now I am beginning to question whether Dell intentionally makes the programs only for their latest laptops and products, which is ***.

I downloaded Mega Manager onto my computer. Today I decided that I did not want it. I uninstalled it. Then I restarted my computer like it told me to. after I did I was unable to use the internet. I checked everything. It was all doing good. I used the diagnose problem it found nothing. It also said I was connected to my ISP. And that My connection was fine. The only thing was I was unable to use any internet program. My Modem to my internet would not get a steady light where it says PC. It would keep flashing. I know that it is supposed to be steady. SO I did a system restore and now it is working again. Any Idea of what might have caused the problem. I think that mega manager changed some kind of network connection or something to do with my internet settings. I would like to fix the problem please. I want to get rid of mega manager. But I had to do a system restore to where I downloaded it the night before. So it is back on my PC now.

A:Mega Manager uninstall

Mega Manager? I suspect that it set up some kind of hook to intercept certain actions of the tcp/ip protocol
and doesn't properly remove that hook when uninstalled thus corrupting the LSP (Layered Service Provider)
Try this:
Uninstall Mega Manager
Open an Admin command prompt (type cmd in search dialogue, right click it, "Run as admin"
netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset

That should usually do it (It's effectively the same what we used to do under 98 and XP: remove the TCP stack and reinstalling it.

Try that and report back

I accidently un-installed the Bluetooth device driver from my computer. Im using LG ultrabook with windows 8.1 installed. is there any way to re-install the Bluetooth driver?

A:Accidently uninstall bluetooth device manager

Open Device Manager, then right click on <computername> at the very top and select 'Scan for hardware changes' from the context menu.


Failing that, go to View > Show Hidden Devices, then look for any residual Bluetooth devices. If there are any, remove them all. Right click on each and select Uninstall. Once their all removed, click 'Scan for hardware changes'

Alternatively, visit the LG Driver Downloads page and download the Bluetooth drivers for your specific model. Make sure the model number is correct to the letter.

OK guys so i have installed Ubuntu from the desktop windows installer from the Ubuntu website and i wanted to try it out so i let it do its thing. Then i rebooted tried to run Ubuntu well Ubuntu wouldn't load. It was just a black screen and eventually gave some crap about i cant remember what.

So then i went into windows and uninstalled it from the programs menu and it uninstalled and there are no partitions or nothing on my pc for Ubuntu (as far as iv seen, Iv done some looking) but the boot manager still gives me the option to select between windows 7 and Ubuntu.

Even though Ubuntu is gone and wont load if i select it it still gives me the option to use it. Now i have found something about running cmd as admin and then using bcdedit.exe i have tried it. bcdedit.exe shows me the os's on the system and heres what i found.

A:Removal/Uninstall HP ProtectTools Security Manager

Greetings to all who may see this. I figured out a way to remove the HP Protect Tools and Manager. Here's how I did it...1) -went to HP drivers page for my model and downloaded all the Protect Tools software listed. By running these applications I was given the prompt to "repair"/"Remove" of course I chose remove.  2) an issue came up where one of the installers did not give this promot, and the software on my laptop was out of date and the listed applications on the drivers site were newer than my software. In these circumstaces I updated the software via HP SoftPaq (to make I am not installing versions side by side, SoftPaq will update the current version on your computer for you) and behold once updated the applications were listed in the Add/Remove Programs.----NOTE TO HP: UPDATE YOUR DRIVERS DOWNLOAD PAGE! I NEEDED TO UPDATE TO HPPTSM v8. THIS HAD TO OCCUR SO I COULD UPDATE MY CompuTrace APPLICATION IT WON'T INSTALL ON v7 ( & SO IT WOULD SHOW UP IN THE ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS ) --- Hope this helps the next person!!!Regards,-Shway

Hi,

I did recently a clean W10 install and there are, of course, issues. My flight stick X52 Pro crashes the PC immediately when it is plugged in (BSOD) and I have no idea why. Saitek is a notoriously incapable of producing good drivers for their products, so even when I installed theirs drivers I got a BSOD. Saitek's uninstall guide for this specific product says I should remove all programmable support entries from the device manager. Which gets us to my problem: I can't remove two entries from programmable support in device manager (Programmable Hotkeys and Programmable Root Enumerator) because device manager freezes when uninstalling or disabling them. How can I uninstall them?!

I am also suspect of my Windows USB drivers. I installed my 3.0 driver from my motherboard manufacturer which, in theory, it should be fine, yet when I plug the X52 Pro in one of the normal USB ports it is not recognized by the windows.

Also, after the fresh installation a new drive F appeared in my explorer. It is empty, I can access it, but I have no idea why it is there. In disk management it is described as a 450MB NTFS drive (Healthy Primary Partition). What is that and how do I get rid of it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Device Manager Freezes + Uknown drive F after uninstall

I don't know about those drivers, I have different model but you can safely remove letter for that partition. If it's after C:/ it's most probably restore partition. Just to be sure, can you post a picture of Disk management ?

I am having trouble getting my vodaphone dongle for internet access on the road installed. My PC refuses to install the drivers properly. It worked fine but it has been about 9 months since I last used it. I have made sure I have the latest drivers downloaded from vodaphone and when I try the dongle in my sons laptop it installs and works fine. I thought I would uninstall the driver from device manager but when I try to do this it just sits there for hours. I have to end up closing device manager down using task manager. Any help much appreciated. I am running W7 on an HP G62 Notebook

Contact vodaphone or HP, sounds like drivers are not compatible. You try installing the drivers that did work with it>

ok this is a weird thing for me, never had to deal with this and dont know what to do.
The problem: I had a video capture card/ tv tuner installed in my pc. At the time i had windows xp pro sp2.
I formatted my pc and installed windows xp Media center edition.
when i tried to install my capture card it wouldnt work.
It read the plug n play, it installed the drivers but when i went to any program to capture video, it wouldnt read it.

So i thought my card had fried, as i did fine a small burn mark on the silver strip on the back of the card.
No problem, i ordered a brand new one.
Only to find im having the same issue, Its installed but when i go to windows movie maker, it says the hardware is in use already when it is not.
WinDVR that came with my card just shows TV fuzz.

the problem i think it is, Is that theres another card supposedly installed on the PC that isnt there.
Example:
in widows movie maker when i choose to capture video im givin the option between two cards.

Card 1: PCI TV TUNER PCI 2309 (This is my new card that i just installed)

card 2: BT878 VfW to WDM Mapper

now when choosing card one, It doesnt give any options in the drop down box for video source. and it says the hardware is in use after i click next a couple times.

When i click card 2 i get an instand error just by clicking it.

Hi,

I am using windows98.
I bought a Aureal vortex SQ 2500 sound card.

It started giving a lot of problem, like sometimes the sound will appear and sometimes it will not.

On surfing through the internet i found that this because the earler driver wasn't uninstalled properly and I did the following.

1)Removed DOS loading Statement for the sound Card in the Autoexec.bat!

2) UNINSTALLED the previous drivers in Windows using add/remove programs!

3) Deleted the following Files:

C:\Windows\Inf\au30mult.inf
C:\Windows\Inf\au30port.inf
C:\Windows\Inf\au30mmed.inf
C:\Windows\Inf\au30comm.inf

4) In Device Manager removed the Aureal Sound Card & Then Rebooted.

Also in startup(ie blue screen appearing on pressing delete) I disabled the Joystickor gameport Option.

When I rebooted indeed the message came" new multimediaPCI device found" and it asked for the installing software twice. I don't know whether it is the reason or not windows didn't boot properly.In safe mode I uninstalled everything and booted.

Now this time" new multimediaPCI device found" didn't come. Only"new wave device for modem found"came.

On going to safe mode again I went to device manager and here I found my PCI card under unknown devices. Earlier it was appearing under Multifunction Adapter category.still i removed it from that category

I wanted to remove the vortex au8330 pci audio from the sound ,video and game controller section so that on rebooting... Read more

A:how to uninstall sound card that doesn't appear on device manager

to see it listed under other devices is no problem. on detection, choose from a list of
devices to select sound and game there. in device manager in the sound catagory, you
can right click the device listed as your card and choose update driver. this will allow a
search for the correct one.

on doing this, choose the i will select option to go to the correct drivers you have. in
the search there, one driver will be highlighted when you reach the place on hard drive
or removeable media where they are located. click ok there. windows will install them.

you want the card listed in the sound devices catagory. that is where it supposed to
be upon a good installation. if you are unsure, boot to safe mode and uninstall devices
listed there referring to the au8330. upon a reboot, windows should have a new detect
on your sound card. let windows take the new drivers you found for 98. upon reaching
the desktop you should hear a wav file if one is assigned for windows startup.

if this sound is now heard, proceed to install the sound card software. this will install a
full driver set. when working properly, go back to device manager and see if the modem
is listed there. if you have no modem, right click on it to choose the uninstall. try this
and post results if you continue to have difficulty. the new device listed is not absolute
for your device on bootup. remember to search for the correct drivers.

Trying to install Windows 10. Uninstalled all components of HP Client Security Manager and thought I uninstall HP Client Security Manager as well. But it still appears on the programs list. When I try to uninstall it again, I get this error:  Error applying transforms.  verifiy the specified transform paths are valid. When attempting to install Windows 10 at this point, it indicates HP Protecttools needs to uninstalled (which I assume is HP Client Manager since that is what appears in the program listing .... in regedit, the two seem to be connected.) I don't know what transforms are and have no idea on how to proceed. I see something about changing the path for the transform in regedit, but I don't even find a transform and HP Client Security associated in the registry. When I try to use the Microsoft uninstall utility, it doesn't recognize that either Client Security Manager or Protecttools is installed (it is not on the list of applications presented) so I click Not Listed and it  asks me to provide Product Code for the software. I haven idea where to find that. Any advice is appreciated.
