Windows 10 - 14 second approval window

Q: Windows 10 - 14 second approval window

Hello All,

I run a windows 10 PC and I am having a challenge finding how to increase the amount of time you have when you make a change to your Monitors.

Right now it gives me 14 seconds or it reverts the changes, is there a way to extend this to 1 Minute or 2 minutes?

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.)

I have no rights to install or uninstall any programme cause my Microsoft account is no longer an administrator account in my laptop.Previously I signed in with my Microsoft account as an administrator & I also had an local account.Now both of my accounts have become local accounts.I can't even go to any settings.I tried to fix it from control panel>user accounts.But here all the options need administrator's approval.Every way I tried this messege is showed.

This messeage says-to continue type an administrator password,and then click yes.

But the "yes" box is invalied.

I can't even go to command promt.

How can I solve it?

Hi Guys,<o:p></o:p>
Good Evening !!<o:p></o:p>
Here is the thing on which I need ideas and help from you guys.<o:p></o:p>
Presently we are in that phase where we are migrating all the machines from Windows 7 to Windows 10.<o:p></o:p>
For this we are using windows 10 dashboard to approve the assets which are ready to migrate from 7 to 10 and presently we are doing it manually by going to dashboard
site and then we have few options to enter the asset tag and then edit it and check the approved option and update so that the asset will be ready for the migration.<o:p></o:p>
And now comes my requirement.<o:p></o:p>
I want to automate this process using power-shell script every time when we get some request to approve one asset i want to write a script so that it will reduce the
manual intervention and also reduce the time to approve the assets.

<o:p style="">I already wrote two line script like example by using invoke-webrequest
command we can access the dashboard. from their on wards i am unable to move further like how to define new objects and all. </o:p>
Please do help me in this how to proceed or any ideas how to do this to approach our  requirement.<o:p></o:p>
Thanks in Advance :) <o:p></o:p>

to spend money for anti spyware and malware program. We run NAV enterprise edition on the server, and all clients receive their updates through it. I know Symantec has a new AV which also incorporates anti spyware. I think it's ver 10.x or 11. Not sure.

Right now we're running ver 8.x of NAV.

The last time I spoke with a tech about it, he recommended that I sit back a while and not install it, due to some bugs within the program.

What is a good Spyware detection and prevention program I should consider using on the clients?

Hi- Newbie here, and of course I have a problem.

I tend to put my laptop in standby mode overnight, but once a week or so I do a full shut-down. I did one of those last night, and when I started things up this morning, I immediately noticed that my wallpaper was changed to the default one for XP, and all the files I had on my desktop were gone (applications remained however). I got a welcome screen like I had just done a new install.

Same sort of thing happened for both Firefox and IE (I use both). Both are acting like fresh installs and, most importantly, all my favorites are gone.

I've just scanned with both Malwarebytes and MSE - both came back with nothing found.

Just to add a datapoint - here's what I'm running...
Windows XP Service Pack 3 x86 NTFS
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

Any idea what happened here? Any idea how to get my favorites back? Of course, it's been awhile since I've backed up.

Appreciate any input.


A:Apparent XP Re-install without my approval

It sounds like you might have a corrupted user profile
and the computer logged you into a default guest account.
I am seeing this but you may want to do a more extensive
web search on your problem to get some more specific information.
May also want to try system restore first in case it is a registry error.

Ok, so I have built a PC before, but it was over 10 years ago and since then, I'm kind of out of the loop. I'm looking to build a new PC now and have picked everything out. Was wondering what you guys think, and what you would suggest. I am lost on some things.

I mainly want it for casual use, photoshopping, video editing and some gaming maybe. I tried to research everything before choosing but a lot of it is still over my head. Example, the Vishera, Haswell, Zambebi stuff on the CPUs. It isn't the brand, what is it and how do I know which is better?

Anyway, here is what I have. Feel free to tell me I have no idea what I'm doing. 😃

Hi All.

I frequently run processes on my pc that go all night. I also often go away from the office for a few days and then need to access the pc (which was left on) remotely to work.

My problem is that when windows finds an update, it just installs it and restarts when it wants to... which can be right in the middle of an important automation.

I also sometimes find that I can't access the pc remotely because it has somehow switched itself off, I'm assuming after an update (sleep is set to 'never').

How can I get Win 7 to download, and tell me about an update, then wait until I say "install"?

All help will be hugely appreciated.

What is the function of Admin approval mode (AAM) and UAC? Is there a link between UAC and AAM? Are they interrelated?
When we turn OFF the AAM, UAC also gets OFF Automatically. Is this an intended behavior?

A:Difference Between UAC and Admin Approval mode

It's actually written in the explain tab of the policies. But in short, yes it's by design that UAC will get turned off if you disable Admin Approval Mode.
User Account Control: Turn on Admin Approval Mode
This policy setting controls the behavior of all User Account Control (UAC) policy settings for the computer. If you change this policy setting, you must restart your computer.
The options are:
• Enabled: (Default) Admin Approval Mode is enabled. This policy must be enabled and related UAC policy settings must also be set appropriately to allow the built-in Administrator account and all other users who are members of the Administrators group
to run in Admin Approval Mode.
• Disabled: Admin Approval Mode and all related UAC policy settings are disabled. Note: If this policy setting is disabled, the Security Center notifies you that the overall security of the operating system has been reduced.
User Account Control: Use Admin Approval Mode for the built-in Administrator account
This policy setting controls the behavior of Admin Approval Mode for the built-in Administrator account.
The options are:
• Enabled: The built-in Administrator account uses Admin Approval Mode. By default, any operation that requires elevation of privilege will prompt the user to approve the operation.
• Disabled: (Default) The built-in Administrator account runs all applications with full administrative privilege.

A:graciously submitted 4 ur approval: Dss log - hopefully passes inspection

I sadly report that after submitting the log ... I message was displayed about security software not being functional. So I tried to launch TrendMocro. It wouldn't fully load and then I ot a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error message which said Runtime Error! Program: C:\PROGRA~1\TRENDM~1\INTERN~1\PcCtlCom.exe. Once I click the x on this window another comes up which says follows which speaks about the PcCtlCom module encountering a problem - send error report. These 2 windows are re-occurring and won't go away. During the first round I got to a window which said "Error Report Contents -
C:\DOCUMEN1\jzd8tj\Temp\WER45dc.dir00\PcCtlCom.exe.mdmp. -and- C:\DOCUMEN1\jzd8tj\Temp\WER45dc.dir00\appcompat.txt" .

What a bummer!

I have tried to uninstall and then re-instsll Trend Micro. No luck. It bombs out as soon as the error message window pops-up. Says "Process Intrupted".

Any thoughts? I still have network connectivity.

I am having trouble with Windows Defender and Update. I am getting error 0x800705b4 for Defender and though I've searched online on how to fix the problem none of them seem to work. Also, my computer won't let me access the update & security portion of my settings. When I click on it the window closes immediately.

A:Can't turn on Windows Defender and cannot open windows update window

RE : I am having trouble with Windows Defender and Update. I am getting error 0x800705b4
That error code usually happens, but not necessarily always because of that, when you have a 3rd party anti-virus program installed, such as Avast, AVG, Norton and McAfee. Those programs mentioned have their own defender and having 2 defenders running in the same computer will create conflicts, not to mention redundancy. Therefore, those programs will shut down Windows Defender.

Please disregard the suggestion posted below. I misunderstood your question.

Hello to all:
This problem just started a few days ago on my Windows 7 Professional 32bit system.

When I open a Windows Explorer window and some Control Panel windows all is good. Problem is that when I try to close the window by pressing the top right window close button or if I right click on the taskbar instance of the window and choose to close it, the program does not close but instead is minimized to the notification area with the formation of a new folder icon. This icon is a standard windows yellow folder. If I expand the notifications area and hover over that folder, a balloon window lets me know that there are 'x windows' where x represents the number of windows that have been minimized (instead of closing as I originally wanted).

Furthermore, a right click on that folder in the notification area brings up a context menu including the names of the windows (that I can click on and maximize back onto the screen). At the bottom of the context menu are the options to 'Restore all' and 'Close all'.

Not sure why this came about. Thanks in advance for your help.

As I say this it does this more and more often, at first it was a split second but then it was long enough to observe it. Now it happens when I close and open windows too. What's happening?

Whenever I add an attachment to my emails, and even here on your website when I uploaded the attached pics, the 'Choose to Upload' pop-up window containing (in this case) my pics ALWAYS (but never used to) opens in the Details mode instead of Thumbnails where I can actually view the pics to be attached prior to attaching them.
I would like the default setting for this occurrence to obviously be in the Thumbnails mode.

In a related issue I would also like to be able to load more than one pic at a time when attaching pics to emails, etc...
Is there such a setting?

Thanks for the assistance

Thanks for all the help. I want to make my shorcuts start programs and windows (In WIndows Xp Pro SP3) at a certain position and with a certain size.

For instance I want to open Excell at position 20,30 (x,y) with a window size of 750 x 200, or maybe a internet explorer window at position 129, 357 with a window size of 562 x 397.

I gave the odd numbers in the example so that people responding will understand that I want CUSTOM SIZES. I know how to set the shortcuts to start maximized and minimized and also window tiling. That's not what I'm talking about. Does anyone know of shortcut switch that I can use?

For instance in some games if you want to start the game with cheats enabled, you put "-devmode" after the directory path in the "target" box of the shortcut properties.

Is there any other way?

There is an awesome program called "Montage3"

which I use, but isn't exactly what I'm looking for. Please help out.

i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

I thank you for your time.

Been messing with this for days. When I open the Control Panel I do not have the option to switch the view on the left side pane. All that is there is the See Also window. I went to view, Toolbar, Customize and added the views icon to the toolbar. As long as I keep the customize toolbar box open and move it up or down I can see it on the toolbar. Once I close the Customize Toolbar window the view icon grays out on the tool bar. My back button is the same way. I checked in another users window and the control panel is fine. I have Windows XP SP3. I am the Admin on the PC. Any help would be great.

When you move a pop up window too high the title/tool bar of the child window is hidden by the main window's tool bar/title bar. As a result the child window is stuck and can not be resized or moved back to the original position or any where you can see
the whole window. Though you can scroll the contents and all the window itself is stuck. The child window never gets the focus back. Unless you close the main window you can not get the child window back to its normal position.
Is there any way that you can move the whole window (not just the contents) back to its original location or maximize that inner window only. Any short cut to move the window only results in moving the main window not the child window.

I would like to be able to open a new browser window in Firefox which would start at the identical location to the one that's open rather than opening at the home page.

In IE, File / New / Window works well for this purpose, and then if you wanted it to start at the Home Page, you could just run Explorer a second time.

It gives the flexibility of going off on other trails with the additional window, but still having the original window open. I'm not crazy about tabs which take up extra space in the browsing window. However, is there even a way to open a new tab at the same location as the current window? Maybe I'm missing the joy of tabs somehow and am stuck in my old way of thinking. Still, I would like to know if what I want is possible.


A:[SOLVED] Open new browse window at same location as current window

Hi I don't think that is an option but I understand what your after and this is the way I do it with keyboard short cuts of

Ctrl + C = copy (While holding down Ctrl tap the C key once)
Ctrl + V = paste
Ctrl + T = new tab
Ctrl + N = New page

OK starting with tabs which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now to copy the URL Ctrl + C your computer will remember this link until you either copy something else or you shut down the computer.

Now we open a new tab Ctrl + T a new blank tab will open and the URL location is blank but with the cursor already in it so we paste the URL there by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have the duplicate page

Now working with a new page there is just a couple of small differences.

You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (once again do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now we open a new page with Ctrl + N a new page will open but the difference is it will not be blank it will be your home page so as there is already a URL that we want to get rid of. The simple way is to once again click on it only once to select it then paste the saved URL by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and ... Read more
