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.)

Hey everyone,
        I am trying to get the REST queries to work with the sharepoint end points instead of graph end points. I first created an app with relevant permissions and have given it the admin consent. Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end
point with https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com as resource. I am then using the access token retrieved to give the rest call to https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/_api/v2.0/drives/b!3indYSbqZ0-hVSPnCgIZy-2xDMh7jH9AuQnEzJMc6TEfQoSJvJT-R6tT0lFBQiPr/root/delta
but it is failing with "error":{"code":"generalException","message":"General exception while processing"}}. The REST response code is 401 Unauthorized. I have filed a Microsoft support ticket but they
have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

Hi All,

I'm having some issues with WinDBG and a crash dump analysis for a Windows Phone 10, so I hope someone could answer this question here.

Background information:
Recently I bought a brand new Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM phone which keeps restarting over and over on a very random basis. After reading several threads it turns out that many people are suffering from the same issue and generic remediation steps are not working
at all. This includes using Windows Device Recovery Tool, turning off certain features such as WiFi & Bluetooth, SD card usage, etc.
After troubleshooting this issue for a while I decided to get on with Field Medic application which clearly indicated a 000000F9 crash. Unfortunately this didn't tell anything too specific so I captured a minidump from the phone and went straight to WinDBG
for further analysis.

Now my issue is that although I can load the crashdump into WinDBG, I'm unable to get the appropriate symbol files as WinDBG is constantly complaining about not finding the required files. I've changed the required sympaths as necessary so I've been trying
to use the official MS online repositories but WinDBG just doesn't want to cooperate and get the files. Unfortunately I couldn't find an offline symbols repository for Windows Phone 10 and therefore I'm stuck with the analysis. The symbols would be required
in order to nail down the root cause making the 0000009F crashes. So far I can only see that this is possibly a driver re... Read more

Sorry, I didn't know if I should post this here or under Software.

I use SnagIt for my screenshot captures. I often go into the SnagIt Editor, which is done by right clicking on the icon in the Notification area. The other day I got the bright idea to put the SnagIt Editor on the Quick Launch bar. I figured this would be a good time saver.

Windows, surprisingly, took a fairly long time to do so instead of the usual drag-n-drop quickness. While doing so, a bunch of little popups kept popping up but so fast I couldn't read them.

Afterwards, I noticed that "VulKan Runtime Library" was installed in the process.

I contacted SnagIt Tech Support and they said it's not related to SnagIt and they don't know why VulKan was installed.

Anybody have an idea what ValKan is and why it got installed in this manner?

Should I be concerned?

A:This just showed up!? "VulKan Runtime Library"

That came bundled with the NVidia driver and yea it was not listed in the custom installer either
I at first thought it was malware.

Hello, thanks for let me in.

I have a brandnew pc. HP Compaq Pro 6300 MT with Windows 7 Pro 64bits, 4 days ago.
I've been using 1TB(NTFS) Seagate hdd in another pc with windows XP and in a third pc with windows 7 ultimate and works just fine, with no problem at all.

Yesterday, I installed that HDD in my new pc and my surprise when I opened the "Equipment" window was the second HDD was not listed.

When I go to "Manage/storage/Disk Management" the second HDD is listed as: "DISK 1, Dinamic, External" and has a little yellow triangle. If I go to "Properties" almost all options are disabled (please, see the caps attached bellow).

I have cheked the Bios set up and the option for sata AHCI is anabled.

Any sugestion will be really apreciated.

Many thanks

Hi all

I just installed another HDD as a second one just for data backup (another internal SATA2 drive.

The HDD was from another computer (I don't know whether or not this matters).

Anyway, I am formatting the drive as I type. My question is why do I now have another drive present that is labelled:


Why is this?

And can I get rid of it?

Also, how do I do this (just delete it)?



A:"Recovery" Drive has showed up after new HDD - Why?

What you are seeing isn't a second drive, but rather a partition of the HDD you are using. Recovery is basically a partition that has been set aside to restore a computer to factory settings (usually found in premade systems like DELL and HP). If the system you put it in is custom, you dont really need this partition, though it is only safe to delete it during the OS install.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:

I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

Situation 1
Hello. I had &#8220;music store card&#8221; [gift card] that I received as a birthday gift lying around so I figured let me it out. Anyway, I purchased 3 songs from iTunes.com. Attempted to burn them. It didn&#8217;t work I got some sort of write error on the CD.

While in main screen I clicked Edit > Preferences > Advance > Burning: Discovered that the settings were set to burn an Audio CD. However, I was using a Data CD. Is this why it didn&#8217;t work? Last I read up it should have worked. The disk was a CD-R Memorex Cool Color CD-R. This shouldn&#8217;t have proven to be a problem right?

This disk can&#8217;t be played in Xbox (original not Xbox 360).

Situation 2
In another situation I tried burning a copy of and an mp3-to-Audio-CD.

When copying the Audio-CD I was using Nero Burn Ultra Edition Got the error message saying along the lines of &#8220;write fail, unable to finish end session.&#8221; Same thing happened when I was trying to make an mp3-to-Audio-CD, except I was using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 10.0.

This disk can&#8217;t be played in Xbox (original not Xbox 360).

So what am I doing wrong? Here are my objectives:

1) Want to burn audio CDs that will play in cars, stereo systems, DVD players, Xbox, and Xbox360 &#8211; when I get it . If I keep purchasing music from iTunes.com, this may prove difficult?

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading.

This could be one for the books,

Last night when I went to look at the Pictures folder in My Documents there was a folder of pictures and six other pictures in my folder that no one, not me, nor anyone else downloaded to the computer. All of them are JPG files and we have friends who have e-mailed pictures to us.

However, in my fifteen years of computer experience I know that I would personally have to download those photos to mu computer in order for them to be viewed. A family member has posted unrelated pictures on E-bay. We are trying to think and there were no e-mails opened, no photos looked at, nothing between the time that this happened, (Last Night.) Because a family friend who is into photography sent nature pictures through E-Mail, I just assumed it was from him and said, "Oh, I put those pictures that you downloaded last night in a folder, and the other computer user in my family said, "What pictures?"

I don't use Photo Sharing of any kind, My Avast Anti-Virus log shows now threats. All of the pictures are OLD. BUT here is the interesting thing, of the photo specs of them so far that I can see, they were taken by a person who has the SAME type of camera that we use on this computer. BUT we just got the camera last year and no one else has used it. The dates on those pictures go back from 2000-2003.

There is no evidence of anyone using any photo sharing application software. The computer runs as well as as ever. Any ideas?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

I posted this in the Multimedia folder, but I don't know if it really belongs there or not, so please delete the other one for me. I don't seem to be able to myself.

Here is the full error when I try to record:

"Another application is recording audio. Stop recording with this other application and then try to record with Sound Recorder again." I have turned off all of the start up programs, restarted my computer, and even uninstalled TotalRecorder, which I thought was causing the problem.

I have tried to use Audio Audicity to record as well, but I get an error message there also, so something is really screwing everything up for me.

I've been trying all night to figure this out on my own, but I just cant solve the problem. Please help me figure this one out, thanks!

I tried to use our volunteer fire company Gateway computer with a flat screen monitor and "Wrong Frequency" came up on the screen. There was a count down of about 15 seconds before the screen went black. There was no "clue" as to what to do during the count down. I had used the computer the day before with no problems. The OS is "2000."

Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

This has happened several times over the past 3-4 months:

Surfing away on Firefox. Go to take a break and set computer on Sleep (Sleep is default when idle). When I get back, FF is not responding and clicking the taskbar icons brings on a whole array of responses such as:
1. Thumbnail of icon will flash above the icon, but won't open
2. Selecting an icon may open the intended program, but it is usually unresponsive.
3. The only way to get out of this mess is to manually shut down (on re-boot, all is functioning well)

A:Taskbar icons "flash," but don't open, among other things going wrong

I used to use Firefox several versions back. But the same issues you've described affected my computer. My "fix" was to uninstall Firefox and reinstall a fresh copy. The problems would disappear for a few weeks and then come back for no apparent reason that I could find. I got tired of dealing with the hassle and just stopped using Firefox.

Hi I use Vista64 SP1 on my HP HDX Dragon laptop

Recently I had a problem with Nvidia drivers and I used CCleaner to remove some leftovers from the registry - Maybe that is that is cause of the following problem:

In "Programs and Features" several programs in the list report a wrong size (for example 63GB instead than 1GB) and a wrong installatio date (one is supposed to have been installed in 2042) -

I also have some icon problem, some icons are mismatched in that list (but that may not be related because it happened in the past and I fixed it by using a small program called rebuildIcons.exe.

What can Ii do to fix all that?

Hello all, I was opening an attachment with a .tif file and it asked me what program I wanted to open it with and a box was checked to "always use this program by default". Now everything is opening in Kodak's software but I want to open.tifs in something else. How can I "Un-default" Kodak Easy Share and choose a different program? Thanks in advance.

A:How do you "Un-default" if you accidentally chose to defaut to the wrong program?

There is a couple of ways you can do this.

You can right click on the file and then choose Open With and Choose Program. Now you should be in the Open With window. Select what program you want .tif files to open up with and then place a check mark by Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.

The second way is similar but is for when you want to associate a certain file type with a program, and you don't have any actual files to right click on.
Start > My Documents > Tools > Folder Options > Files types tab. Pic a file type under Registered file types and then click the Change... button.

The "United States-International" keyboard layout option is supposed to let you type accents by pressing the right-alt key at the same time as ' " ~ ` or ^ followed by the letter you want to accent. For some reason on my computer the right-alt key does not work for this purpose, but left-alt and left-shift do. Unfortunately this is conflicting with all sorts of things so I really need to figure out how to get it to work with the right-alt key as it is supposed to. I have no idea what could be causing this problem so I don't know what other information to include. Any idea how to get this working properly for me?

I got a new 2 TB drive for my PC. I never had any trouble installing Windows before. I wanted to make the drive the primary drive.

I keep on getting an error message that Windows's can't be installed on this drive because it is the wrong "NFTS" format? I had never heard of that before. I tried to format it via the installation and it wouldn't let me do that either.

The drive is properly connected. I reinstalled the old hard drive, and kept the new one in there as well. It is recognized and works fine as a "slave" or secondary drive. It is formatted as an NFTS.

Any idea what could be going wrong?

So I recently upgraded to an SSD, I moved the Location of the Documents folder to my HDD, now when I play games it stores files, where they should normally be in the Documents Folder, in the E:\ drive rather than E:\Documents.

My "Document Properties" look like this:

So shouldn't those folders be going to the Documents folder? They already exist in that folder but are from before I transitioned to an SSD.

Any ideas?

I am a professional photographer & am trying to optimize Adobe Lightroom for processing RAW files as fast as possible. Presently, I am trying to decrease the pause I have each time a new photo loads into the develop module (this is my biggest editing bottleneck).

Here's my system specs:
OS Win-7 64-bit
CPU i7-3930K
Windows is installed on C:\ (SSD)
Windows paging is managed by the system, and usually appears on C:\ (SSD)
the Lightroom catalogue is on D:\ (SSD RAID-0)
the Lightroom Cache is also on D:\ (SSD RAID-0)
the RAW files that Lightroom accesses are on E:\ (SSD RAID-0)

My confusion is over the way Resource Monitor displays the "disk activity" at the crucial points (when Lightroom loads a new RAW photo). The "storage" window lists drives C, D, & E as as most active during this time (according to the Active Time(%)), which seems right...

However, "disk activity" lists the system and lightroom as reading files from "H:5\file_path_etc" at the highest rate. I am concerned that this means Lightroom and system are using cached files on the H:\ drive, and my H:\ drive is a slow 7200rpm HDD... Or maybe I'm not reading the "H:5\file_path_etc" tag right. (drive H:\ doesn't have these files on it anyway, unless they are there in a cached form (?)).

I also see a similar thing for "disk activity" on "H:0\file_path_etc" for the following files:
1) the Lightroom catalogue, which should be on D... Read more

A:Lightroom "disk activity" on the wrong drive - can someone explain?


OK, so I think I've solved this one. H:0\ is simply Windows 7's way of referring to the D:\ drive in a RAID-0 array on my computer, and H:5\ is Windows 7's way of referring to the E:\ drive in a RAID-0 array on my computer.

Bummer. I was hoping for a speed increase in the way Lightroom behaves. I'll need to look elsewhere, it seems :-(

Windows 7 auto update in the middle of the night messed everything up. My desktop is empty, my documents and other folders are also empty.

However, if I navigate through MyComputer, I can still see the files where they should be. Windows is presenting me with a new and empty directory instead.


REAL DIRECTORY (where my files exist): Computer/C:/Users/PC/Downloads

START MENU DIRECTORY (empty when you click downloads): Computer/C:/Windows/System32/config/systemprofile/Downloads.
So, the start menu navigation used to take me to the correct folder and is now taking me to some Sys32/config nonsense folder.

How do I get the desktop and start menu to access the correct folders like it used to before the update. My data and files are not deleted...it just seems that way because they aren't showing the right folders.


A:Windows 7 using "wrong" desktop and folder paths after update.

Sounds like your user profile has lost it's connection with where it's data is stored.

Enable the hidden Administrator account from WinRE/Win 7 install DVD/flash drive.

User Account Password - Change from WinRE

Follow through part of Step 9. Logon on to the "Administrator" account

The key is a registry hack that redirects Windows back to the ProfileImagePath of the original profile.

Click on Start then Run. type regedit and press Enter or click OK.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
Once there, you will see the SID's listed for all of the profiles on the machine. Within the Key for each SID there is an entry called "ProfileImagePath" that will look like
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\UserName...
Scroll through the SID's until you find the one with the screwy name, like
%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\youruserid.2
This is just an example, could be something else weird.
Just edit the Key to remove the ".2", and it will point the user back to their old profile...
Got this from TechRepublic.com but it's no longer there.

Undo the magnify.exe change made earlier and disable the hidden Administrator account if you want. I leave mine available in case I ever need it.

A daughter of a friend just bought Win7 Pro x64 from her university bookstore, and when she put the DVD into her laptop drive, she is greeted with a "wrong version" or "incorrect version" error message. She tells me she is running Vista (I am assuming x86) and that she has ~4GB of memory. Has anybody ever heard of something similar happening?

She told me that she has almost all of her info on an EHD, so I told her to backup whatever else she wanted to keep off of the HDD and when I visit tomorrow we will attempt to do the install, most likely a custom install for a fresh start (laptop ~2 years old).

Since I have read in several places here on the forums that the key included with the disc is good for both x64 and x86 versions of Win7, if it turns out that she has <4GB of RAM, is it possible to install the x86 from the disc? If so, is it easy to locate? If not, is there someplace we can dl it from? She tells me that she uses it mostly for Office (reports, presentations, etc) and used to run games on it (not sure what type), so I don't know if she would "need" x64 unless she has 4GB+ of RAM, right?

Any info would be greatly appreciated. If there are any specific questions I should be asking of her or things to look for when I am in front of the lapt... Read more

A:Win7 x64 install error: stating "wrong version" on Vista laptop... ?

as far as i understood you entered the Key that came with Windows 7 DVD, if so then she should go back to the store, cuz the key is wrong and ask for at least trying to install it infront of her. and for running windows 7 smoothly you need at least 2GB ram, Core 2 Duo processor with 2GH frequency and 3 MB L2 Cach, in this case it will run smoothly.
Now a starting fix will be: Check if the processor is compatible with x64, also when is the message appearing after doing what?
cuz i don't know what to say until i know where the message starts appearing

Hey everyone.

So you all know the fishy download sites that do their best to make you click the wrong "Download" icon, and instead download something else. It usually comes with the same file name of the thing you originally wanted, but with an .exe format.
If this happens, I usually stop the download before it even finishes, but a few minutes the .exe was so small it finished before I had the chance - and even though I didn't click it, suddenly I get a Windows 7 "ESET GUI has stopped working" message.

I restarted the GUI and everything seemed back to normal, but the anomaly is obviously connected to the file. I'm worried it had done some damage within that window of opportunity.

How do I make sure?

Windows 7 64
Core i7 860 @ 2.8GHz
Gigabyte P55M-UD2
NOD32, up to date.

A:Clicked the wrong "download", started downloading an .exe, ESET GUI stopped working

I've been doing a lot of tidying up of my file types and associations, and one of the things that I have done is to ensure that all my most used file types have meaningful and accurate "friendly names". So, instead Explorer referring to .wv files as "WV File" it now says "WavPack Audio File". I've done this for numerous file types and it has all worked well and is correctly displayed in Explorer.

However, I also use Windows Libraries, and for some reason it is still using generic file descriptions, or older ones that I chose myself and subsequently updated.

I have done the usual things of clearing the icon cache and all other cache and temp storage. I've also completely rebuilt the index of the Library in question. I have even removed all folders from that library and deleted the top level library itself (then, after a reboot, recreated it by selecting 'Restore Default Libraries'), but as soon as I add my folder to the Library, the same old file names show up again.

I have done a thorough search of my Registry and some of the terms being displayed by the Library are nowhere to be found in the Registry (because I have updated every possible instance of the file type name) so it must be cached somewhere, unless its buried in some indecipherable format in the Registry that doesn't show up in search results.

If I click an incorrectly named 'file types' group in the Library, and then choose 'Open Folder Location' to look at the same files direct... Read more

A:Windows Explorer "Libraries" displaying wrong File Type names

This could have something to do with your user files. Are you the Administrator of this computer & do you only have one user account?.

Click on Computer & then click on your main OS drive which is normally C:\, then click Users, which should show your user name as one of the folders. Click on that & select your Documents files & see if the new names are listed there, if so you can create a New Library by clicking on Include in Library, from the menu at the top, & selecting Create New Library.

If all the Documents are correct as mentioned above you could copy all the Documents into the New library & then after checking everything is correct you can delete the old library.

If you have more that one user account, it's possible that all the changes are being made on one account & you are then trying to access them on another account, so you keep getting the old arrangement.
