Ignoring Default App Settings

Q: Ignoring Default App Settings

New Windows 10 Home Computer, set up using PCMover from Windows 7 Home Premium Computer. A few problems, of course, so far mainly applications that did not transfer properly, and those easily solved.

One problem however I don't understand, and, therefore, cannot fix. I've gone into the settings for default applications, some of which are constantly ignored. I know that they are ignored, as WinPatrol keeps notifying me of attempted changes. One such pop-up is on the screen right now, stating that a change for files with the extension .avi have been changed from the setting to use VLC media player to use Windows Media Player. I clicked on No, to reject the change, whereupon a new one, this time for .cab files popped up. I will reject it, and a series of such changes will appear and be rejected.

This keeps happening, always for the same extensions, and I don't know how to stop it. Chants, exorcism instructions, banishment methods, all such would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Ignoring Default App Settings

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: Ignoring Default App Settings

Hi, some things you might (not) wish to know about default programs in Win 10:
a. A very few old version programs, if installed, cause defaults to revert to MS default on restart. E.g. Winzip.
b. Hyperlink association needs to be explicitly set in Control Panel, Default Programs, if changing browser or if unassociated.
c. Some people experience associations changing on Windows updates. Cause unknown.
d. Major upgrades (= Windows reinstall-like procedure) e.g. build 10580 in November cause associations to be reset. (MS might get this right next time).
e. Even when you have assigned associations, you might get a confirmation prompt using 'Open with'.
f. From Win 8 you can't set associations from within programs. Most such attempts do not give warnings.

I've not seen your specific problem reported. I'd suggest checking the programs you've transferred and have installed for old versions, and eliminate that possibility.

Also try a clean boot and see if the same symptoms arise.

(As an aside, I used Laplink's PCMover Image Assistant - uses a mounted disk image of the old PC -faster than the original PCMover)

Hello

We have a Windows XP machine on our network that is giving us a strange problem. We have it statically configured with an IP and a default gateway address which points to a router on our network. This is the same router that nearly all of our machines point to and none of the other machines have this issue.

If we open up CMD and make a ping request from an outside server (public or interal servers on other subnets) we get a 'destination host unreachable' error. We can ping the ip address of the router that is assigned as the default gateway.

We can circumvent this ip address by adding a static route ('route add' from CMD) directing all traffic on the network interface to the ip of the router. Once this is done we can ping and get a response from any server both internal and external.

We also tried doing a tracert (without have the static route added) to an external site by IP address. The tracert does not even show a hop for the router so it seems as if the request is never making it past the interface on the XP machine. We simply get an error saying it is unable to find the host. Interesting though it does provide us with a domain name for the ip address. So somehow it is able to reslove DNS. (We have a local DNS server on the same subnet)

Anyone ever experience something similar?

Hi folks,

I made the unpleasant discovery recently that all my corporate laptops are using the wifi network even when sitting on their docks or otherwise connected to the wired network. Most of them have intel wifi cards, and the proset software allowed me to disable-by-policy wifi if a lan connection is detected.

Some, however, have a more generic wifi card that doesn't have fancy management software, leaving me with the default windows stuff.

In an attempt to correct the problem I
a) Put Local Area Connections at the top of the Adapters and Bindings list
b) manually assigned cost metrics to the connections in the tcp/ip settings

But no luck. Everything is still using wifi and ignoring my wonderful gigabit lan. Thoughts?

--Edit--
Should mention: all running windows 7 pro -- some 32 and some 64 bit

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

(windows 7) I accidentally messed up the security settings in the "Default Folder" (a shortcut?) of the Users folder.
I removed administrators permissions , that caused my pc to be unable to restore to previous restore point correctly. However, I was able to re-add the admin permission and everything now is fine.
Yet I need help here.
1 could anyone post screenshots of the default "default folder" security settings? I need to set it back to the default one even though now it works fine.
2 why the hell does that folder NOT HIDDEN? Are yours not hidden as well? Of course the option to hide all system file is checked on my pc. The only reason I messed with that folder is because I thought it was just a normal folder and not a system folder. Anyway to get it back to be invisible?

My boyfriends computer wouldn't start up so we had a tech (friend) look at it. He did somethings to the computer including replacing the video card.

Now all of the programs are in the start up menu and starting when the computer starts up, but thats not the problem. I had gone into the start up menu and unchecked all those I don't want to start up and also went into some of the programs themselves and set them up so they did NOT start up when computer was turned on.

Everytime the computer is turned on all those programs still start up and the tool bar at the bottom is loaded with program icons.

Why do the programs keep going back to the default settings and how can i fix this.

Hello Wan, and welcome to Vista Forums.

If this helps, this is what I found for this:






Valve Corporation uses .GCF games cache files both with its Steam computer game online content delivery platform (used for downloading computer games and content from the Internet), and with its Source 3D game engine (used to render realistic 3D graphics in their games). Valve Corporation also developed the game Half-life (along with its sequels) and the .GCF files is sometimes specifically associated with this game, although it is entirely possible that .GCF might be generated by any of Valve Corporation's games..



If you have Half-Life or another Valve brand game, then reinstalling the game to repair it without uninstalling it should fix the file association also.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

A:default settings

There are ways to restore defaults to individual applications or OS components, but I am not aware of any "global default restore" capability. The closest I know of is with XP where you can roll-back the system to a previous checkpoint if the right options are enabled. But, there is even a problem here... if you don't know what you're doing you can "un-do" legitimate changes to the system. You may have better luck by figuring out how to use "permissions" to restrict what the users can and cannot update.

Can I change the default settings for Font and Font Size, and the Page Margins in WordPad and Microsoft Works 2000? If so, please tell me how. I am getting tired of having to manually change the settings every time I start a new document. Thank you, Robert

I don't believe this can be done in WordPad.

However, in Works:
Change Works Default Font
Selecting the default font in Microsoft Works is a simple matter. Open the MS Works word processor and in the menu bar to Format | Font | Style. Click on Font and Style and a dialog box pops up. In the dialog box, choose your font by highlighting it, then highlight the font size that you prefer. Select a color if you choose or leave the color on auto. Move to the right side of the dialog box and click on the Set Default button. This font choice will appear every time that you open Works. If you are changing the font for a single document only then click on the OK button. Click to expand...

and
Q. Every time I create a new document, I want it to follow a specific style, such as using default margin settings. How do I do this?

A. To specify custom settings that apply to each new document, you should create a blank document with those setting, and then save it as a template. To do this, use the instructions below:

Create a new document and apply any settings you want in your new documents. For example, if you want all new documents to have a .5-inch margin, apply that change in the Page Setup area.

On the File menu, click Save As.
Click Template.
Type a name for your template. To use this template for all new documents of that type, select Use This Template For All New Documents.
Click OK. Click to expand...

If they are truly identical, maybe someone turned one of them on at one point (and didn't turn the other one on).

Hello all, I'm new here.

I have a question:

We have windows XP home edition and our monitor is pretty old. It does have an updated graphics driver, however, which I just downloaded (it's an intel graphics media accelerator driver).

Everything works just fine, it's just that the screen is very dark. So I went in and changed the gamma/contrast/brightness settings on the graphics driver and got it to how I want it. That works fine as well, it's just that everytime you log off/on, turn the computer on in the morning, or run a full screen program it reverts back to the default settings.

I saved my settings as a scheme, but I don't know what to do from there. The weird part is that when I go into the graphics driver when it has reverted to the default settings, the settings it appears to be set on are the ones I want, but it's actually set on the default settings (even though mine are shown). If I simply click on one of the bars that adjusts the gamma/brigtness/contrast, even if I don't change it, the screen goes back to the settings that I want (the ones that are shown).

So, is there a way to have the screen always be the same gamma/brightness/contrast for every user and even when running a full screen program, without ever having to touch the driver again?

Thank you for your time

A:Default XP Color Settings

Before messing with video settings in the driver, you should adjust brightness and contrast with the buttons on the monitor casing (assuming it has any).

Hi. I have a PC (5 years old now, I use it as a second machine) which has been working just fine until this week, but when I boot (into Windows 7 (x64) ) the PC soon freezes up completely, or I get a BSOD (the PC rebooted - I have changed the settings so it won't in future and will note down details). I do have one crashdump file (ntoskrnl.exe problem), but what I want to try at the moment is to return the clock settings to default. The M/B is a p6x58d-e. Googling has found lots (of course) on overclocking but all I can find is the default CPU Voltage (1.18).

The P/C has always been overclocked with no problem, giving a stable 3.8GHz. The settings I was using are below. Last week the O/C failed and in the BIOS the CPU Voltage of 1.30000V, which had been OK for years, was in purple, indicating a problem. The highest I could get the BIOS to accept was 1.20000. But I made no other changes to settings in the BIOS - maybe this is where the problem lies, changing the CPU Voltage alone?? I can enter the stock value of 1.18000V for CPU Voltage, but what else to I have to change in the following settings to return the PC to its default clock settings (DRAM Bus Voltage???). As this is not my principal PC any longer, I have no reason to overclock, if that is what is causing the problems now. (Any other suggestions as to the cause, otherwise?).

I checked Core temps BTW - all are fine under load. Running an AVG anti-virus scan has all cores running near max though... Read more

A:Default clock settings for i7-950?

Hi,
Does this look like what you have ?
If not you might be able to just remove and reinstall the cpu and that should also reset everything :/

Don't ask me how I did it, but I must have changed a setting when in MS WORD or WIN XP.

PROBLEM:
EVERYTIME I print a doc on MS WORD, a doc summery sheet is printed too.

How do I turn this off? It is driving me crazy and wasting paper and ink!

Please respond in DUMMIES 101 style.

thanks!
 

A:DEFAULT print settings

Try printing something via File -- Print. With the "Print" dialog displayed, click on "Options". You may find that "Document Properties" (under "Include with document") is checked -- if so, uncheck it & continue the printing. This should reset it for subsequent prints.

HTH,
Andy

Hi All

I have just installed a new printer however when I go to print it wants to send a fax. So I have to manually change the setting to the printer every time I want to print.

Does anyone know how I change the default printer setting to my printer and not fax option on the printer.

Cheers
 

A:Default printer settings.

have you got two printer elements in the list - one for printer and one for fax
if so
click on the printer one you want to set
right click on it
and you should be able to
set as default printer

I have office 2013 and use outlook for my email. When I delete a message it goes into my trash folder and not my deleted folder. Plus the trash folder keeps only a few days of deleted emai9ls. How can I change outlook to send deleted items to the deleted folder and also keep them until I want to delete them. My sent folder also just keeps a few days of sent item. I want to keep items in all my folders until I delete them. How can I do this? Thanks much....

Can anyone tell me how to restore the default security settings to my c and d drives? Or maybe just post theirs. I was messing with mine and can't seem to download from any sites.

I'm the sole owner and user of my pc so I would like to be logged in as administrator at all times. Running RC 7100.

Thank you

Hi Polorsport, Welcome to the forum,

Maybe you shouldn't fiddle

Try doing a system restore System Restore

I hope this helps, otherwise my best advice is a reinstall

I have noticed that my default setting in the Add/Remove Program are not staying as what I set them to be, thus I am having problems with the Windows Media Player not playing the downloads from Limewire or Ares. I have tried to rollback the system, nothing changes.
Am using Windows Live Onecare on my system as it is better than what Road Runner was offering for free (it didn't block viruses and had a mess cleaning them all out).
Any ideas, thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Hi,

Recently my computer's internet gliched and I can no longer connect to any webpage. I think it might have somthing to do with me deleting route 0.0.0.0 on cmd. this is what I wrote:

route delete -p 0.0.0.0

Is there any way i can restore the deleted route?

A:How do I change cmd to default settings?

Hi and welcome to the Forum
Can you do a system restore to a point behind when you did the deletion? It would also beg the question why did you delete it?

I can't get my IE7 to keep web page settings (ie. my login settings for this forum) so I don't have to keep re-typing in my logins. It works on the new PC that I have at work. I am thinking about resetting the default settings. I checked the add-on list and it is pretty long. If I reset to defaults, it says that it is going to wipe them out. Will it automatically reload as needed or will it just further screw up my IE7.

Hi as stated I cant change any of the default app settings in windows 10.
I tried to change my default browser to chrome,nothing happens after i click google chrome,its still edge.
This also applies to other defaults like maps,music player,photo viewer etc.

A:Cant change default app settings

Hello, have you researched this on the forum? Questions about this have been asked so often.. the forum is a useful resource tool.

Note that you cannot change defaults from within programs- true from Win 8 on.

Please see:
Default Apps - Choose in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Have you tried by these means?

Also note that there are special instructions about Chrome which you can find which many have had difficulties with.
Search
Chrome default browser
e.g.

Note too that a couple of old version programs e.g. Winzip if installed have caused defaults to be reset on restart.

Hope that helps and points you in the right direction.
