The Weather App just shows that I am not connected to the internet and it wont accept any location in India... help...
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.)

No, that weather app won't work, but you can get the 'accuweather' app from the store that works just as well if not better, since it also has working maps.
In my IE history, there are links to two sites on hotels in a town on the beach in Germany, and links to a site (i think even it's the BBC) for the average monthly weather temperatures for that town? Or is it more likely a person was using my computer. My friend was traveling to Europe two week later, and they swear they weren't using it. But I also had a virus or trojan or something on my computer that same week when she was here and could have used my computer.I am just wondering which is more likely. Or if it is even possible that a virus or trojan could do this. And if so, has anyone heard of a virus which looks up hotels and weather temperatures for the same town? Or does anyone think this is absolutely ridiculous a virus would do this and this was a person looking up hotels on my computer before their trip abroad..they swear they were not using it, but the hotel is nearby a friend of theirs.Edit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum, due the absence of any logs in topic. ~ Animal
Hello.I remember having this discussion with you on IRC. But, just for the record I'll post here too.While it's entirely feasible that a piece of malware could be written to do the tasks you mention, there's absolutely no reason why anyone would write such a program. Modern malware is concerned with making money above all else.~BladeRead other 1 answers
My weather gadget doesn't work from few days. Says cannot connect to service.
- Disabling Firewall.
- Unchecking "Automatically Detect Settings" from inetcpl.cpl
- The step Paul mentioned in the link below:
- Adding a registry DWord Value "AllowElevatedProcess" with the value 1, HKCU >> Software >> Microsoft >> Windows >> Currentversion >> Sidebar >> Settings.
Still no joy.
Any inputs on the same, is appreciated. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

With that in mind, it could be a connection issue. If you have a router involved, please bypass it and connect to internet directly. Any firewall, please disable it.Also try control panel - internet options - connections tab - LAN settings, then
uncheck automatically detect settings.

I have a weather widget that stopped working after I contacted Microsoft about a problem downloading Silverlight. The tech that helped me took control of my screen for almost 2 hours and in the process I saw him delete numerous files. I assume I lost something I need for the weather widget. (PS I have that widget on my laptop and it still works fine)
I did see the following fix in another post:
Go to "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Services\Cache", open "Config.xml" (RMB -> Edit) and save it (File -> Save) without doing any changes. After 10-20 seconds restart the gadget!
Problem is I don't have that file or path: Under my user name I only go this far "C:\Users\USERNAME
If I look under Administrator I get this far "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local
Under guest I come the closest with "C:\Guest\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft
Do I need to download the folders/file I can't find the path to? If so where can I get them?
My weather widget stopped working on all my computers about a month ago. I just assumed that Microsoft fell out of grace with a sub contractor. Bob
Suddenly the weather gadget on my desktop has stopped working, says "cannot connect to service." My internet connection is fine. Has Microsoft disabled the weather gadget for security reasons, as some say? If so, would downloading Weather Underground as replacement be a good idea?

I have The Weather app permissions set to allow it to display the weather on the lock screen. This has been working fine for some time -- up until now.
Now it only shows alerts, not the temperature. Any idea how to fix this?
To get the weather to show on the lock screen TWO things are needed:
Give the Weather app permision to access the lock screen.Tell the lock screen what you want to see.
I think number 2 is set up by default and I think I set up number 1 myself. This was enough to make it work.
Somewhere along the line I mucked up number 2. I do remember experimenting in that area.

You might sync your app licenses to see if that may help.

I wish I had an answer for you, but I'm hoping that matching your problem may help us resolve it. I have the same problem.
Here's my version:
It's my father's notebook that I look after, brand new Samsung with a config that's a lot like yours: win8-64, i7, 8GB. Main diff is that it has Nvidia graphics, but similar. Also has a dual monitor (Medion, 23cm)
...And exactly the same problem. The native Bing Weather app just does not work. (Also, the Travel app).
Mostly everything else works fine. (But not some of the Samsung utilities, Flash player, etc)
Symptom: App starts up but just sits there like its trying to get going - never goes anywhere...
OK. My take..and some of the stuff I've done:
- There's another notebook sitting right next to the Samsung, an Asus C2D, older (also Win8-64) - and all apps work fine on it!
- All was working fine on this machine until one of the massive updates about a month ago appeared to wreck everything. I struggled for days with the whole Metro interface not working. Apps would open for a second and then close.
- Tried refreshes AND resets, no go
- Found a good blog that said uninstall and resinstall al the apps that were doing that - I had tried some, but didn't realize I could try it with native apps (was hesitant to do so). But that brought all back - except for 4: News, Weather, Travel and Finance (not that he wants it)
- Tried many app uninstalls and resinstalls. No go
- Then a couple of ... Read more
hey everyone, i have a minor problem with using FSX.
when i log into multi on FSX AKA game spy, there is a local host who lives near me where i live. now when i join his sessions i can get in to the session......but when i have used up all my internet quota and he has real world weather updates on, i cant seem to get in.....example: the box comes up with "downloading real world weather updates from jeppason" and it goes really slow by the time it hits 100% it tells me that the host has canceled the session.....and he hasn't. does anyone know about this problem or is it my internet speed
any help would be ace
Quote: "When I have used up all my Internet quota"
Meaning bandwidth? If you've used your limit, then yes, your downloads are going to be SEVERELY throttled, you'll also have very high latency, because if you have used up all your bandwidth, you'll still get service, but it'll be slow as you have low priority on the ISP's servers.

I've always been using the Weather Channel toolbar on the bottom right of my computer screen to view the tempurature, however the other day, my IE 6 was very slow and so I decided to restart the computer. When I restarted, I got a pop up script error window with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark inside. Every time I tried to close the window, I had to click it again and again for the new script error windows to close, and finally they did. I didn't write the whole error down, but it was a script error that showed the file destination and that included the Weather Channel folder (http:www.......weatherchannel......), so I know that has something to do with my problem. When I opened IE 6, most sites were looking normal as usual, but when I went to You Tube, MetaCafe, and even when trying to play streaming audio, the web pages for these sites looked very unusual, almost raw (like there weren't completely programmed correctly). Some pictures wouldn't show and they had red X's. The disoriented pages only happened on these sites (and possibly others), but Google, Hotmail, and other sites looked normal.
I tried running my Symantec virus scan with no results, then I System Restored my computer a few times to different dates, and I even upgraded IE to 7, with no luck. At this time, I did not get any script error messages anymoresd, but the w... Read more

I am wondering if it is possible to connect my home PC back in India from here in USA. I tried net meeting, remote desktop connection, but i got errors.
Can some experts guide me how to do this. I think this will not be allowed as its something like hacking. I use a cable modem and router, while the internet connection in India is a dial up 56 kbps.
I read on internet that both the PCs must be on same network for netmeeting, etc to work, so how do i do that. Also is it true that the IP address given by ipconfig is not the actual IP address, i should somehow get the WAN ip address of both PC's. I do not know how to get that.
Guidance would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.
When you are connected to a router your computer's IP address is a private address assigned by the router. For your public IP address look at the router's WAN status or go here: http://www.whatismyip.com/
To connect by Remote Desktop your India PC has to be configured properly; for XP Pro this just means set to allow RD. For other systems you need some third party software. And, of course, the PC has to be connected to the internet. You will probably not enjoy RD with dial-up, and unless it's a pretty decent dial-up it may be too slow to work at all. Good luck.

I want to buy a Dell laptop. When I compare the prices between India and the US, I found that it is more affordable to ship it from the US.
Is it possible to ship the laptop from the US, if so what will be the Shipping charges?Will it be delivered safely?
Any valueable inputs deeply appreciated.
Unless you know someone in the US who can order for you and ship, no - Dell won't ship internationally.
Even then, remember that the warranty applies to the country of purchase - you'll have to transfer ownership and warranty when you receive the system.

Had a call last night, strong Indian accent I could barely understand, claimed that he represented "Windows" and that someone was using my computer without my knowledge. He knew my name complete with middle name. I hung up. Now I am thinking that someone was trying to initiate a scam, perhaps hoping to get passwords or other data. Anyone else know about this?

Try opening IE in safe mode and disable any or all add-ons. Than try to access IE, if it opens than there is a problem with any one of the add-on that is installed in your computer. In oder to do, try the below steps.
1. Open your Internet Explorer window.
2. Click on Tools > Manage Add-ons.
3.Click on Toolbar and Extension in the left pane of the window. This will show you all the add-ons that are installed on your I.E. browser.
4. Click on disable by selecting each add-ons on the right side of the pan. (Disable buttons will be found above the close button and below the window pan.)

If you purchased the system with an onsite warranty (extra cost), yes - it can be transferred. If you did not, you must upgrade to an onsite warranty at extra cost before it can be transferred.

This is simply crazy..and if that is how HP makes money...i will never purchase another HP product again!
I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

I would really like to find some way to automate my email access in order to get around the connection problems I have.
I work for a non-profit foundation and am currently based in rural India. The location where I am is only 50 miles from Bombay. Although Bombay is a huge city with sophisticated facilities, in my area the phone lines are awful. Electronic exchanges have constant problems, overhead lines get pulled down or felled by falling trees and underground cables are regularly dug up. Things get fixed according to who paid off the officials involved. Often the few working lines are overloaded and constantly busy. I attempt to access a major ISP (VSNL) in Bombay and thereby to connect to my company’s email server in New York to access email. It should be straightforward enough, but the lines cause several problems.
I have to run a Dial-Up Networking Script (.scp file) upon connecting to the ISP. Currently I use Outlook Express 5.0 (though I could switch to Outlook 2000 if there is any advantage). Because of the script (I think) when I click ‘Send & Receive’, the dialog box requires me manually to check ‘Save Password’ and ‘Send Automatically’ before proceeding. If the lines are busy I cannot set it to automatically retry later by checking for new messages at a preset interval because of the dialog box.
Another problem is that sometimes a connection is made to the ISP or to my company server but the quality of the line or something causes errors and Outlook ... Read more
