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.)

Como fao para instalar e utilizar uma placa Marvel Libertas 802.11 b/g com um computador rodando windows 7?

Read other answers

Hi all,

I know - this already sounds like a worst case scenario trying to use windows 7 with one of the oldest windows OS' that supported some form of networking.

Well, here's the deal - the CNC machine I need to be able to send files to is - yes, WFW 3.11. It currently shares a folder to put the appropriate gcode files into for the actual CNC controlling software. This has been fine with XP. We recently got a new machine that has Windows 7 Pro 64bit to replace one of the old XP machines that has died. Needless to say, windows 7 refuses to authenticate against the WFW machine.

It just keeps coming back asking for credentials. They are both part of the same workgroup, and the win7 machine sees the cnc machine, but it just refuses to map the share.

And no, the hardware in the cnc machine can't be upgraded to a newer version OS - it's currently too slow and to replace it is too expensive.

Has anyone been able to get Windows 7 to communicate with WFW 3.11 in a workgroup setting?

A:Windws 7 + Windows For Workgroups question...

You probably have to (at least) change Win7 from using NTLMv2 only auth - you may have to also disable the requirement for 128-bit encryption, although I'd suggest just the first change by itself and re-test access after a reboot before making the second and third:
Start > secpol.msc > Local Policies > Security Options
- Network security: LAN Manager authentication level > Send LM & NTLM responses
- Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based clients > Disable Require 128-bit encryption
- Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based servers > Disable Require 128-bit encryption

Hello Everyone!
I am having a problem downgrading a clients machine from Windows 8.1 64 bit to Windows 7.  It boots off the Windows 7 CD, and gets to the Windows is loading files screen.  The progress bar fills up and it switches to the Windows 7 splash screen for a few seconds and then it blue screens with this message, 'the BIOS in this system is not fully ACHI compliant.  Please contact your system vendor for and updated BIOS.  0x000000A5. 
I have flashed it to the latest BIOS and it has no effect.  I have reset the UEFI settings within Windows and disabled UEFI in BIOS while enabling legacy boot.  I have done this on several other HP mchines for clients and when rebooting after the UEFI reset, just before the HP splash screen I would get a message telling me to enter the 4 digit code and press enter to complete the reset.  On thois machine, I do not get the code to reset it.
After some googling I found mention of it there being problems boot from the Windows 7 CD.  So I prepared a Windows 7 boot flash drive with Rufus and a Windows 7 iso.  I change the BIOS setting to boot from the flash drive and I get to the exact same point in the install before it blue screens again.
Has anyone else run into anything like this?  I have never had an issue downgrading like this before.  Any ideas, suggestions, input, or opinions will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you all in advance!

Bueno explicare lo que me ha pasado...
Hace tiempo compre una latop Toshiba L645D-S4056 la cual venia con un S.O en ingles(Win7HomePrem), yo lo queria en espa?ol asi es que busque a una persona quien me lo cambiara a espa?ol, esta persona no tiene conocimientos y me la ha formateado con un S.O en espa?ol a lo cual dije: esta muy bien etc etc(Win7Ultimate), y ahora me encuentro en un gran problema, mi laptop no es compatible con WinXP pero yo lo quise probar asi que me dispuse a formatear e instalarlo, claro tuve que cambiar la configuracion de la BIOS a modo compatibilidad para ello, despues de haberlo instalado me doy cuenta de que no me gusta y al regresar al S.O anterior(Win7Ultimate) todo parecia marchar bien hasta que tuve que reiniciar mi laptop por que me lo pedia un programa, todo normal el letrero starting windows y las bolas de colores y de repente puuf se reinica y dije que pasa y asi estuvo un rato hasta que me arte y la restaure a un punto anterior en el que sirvio y marcho bien, al fin de la noche la apague y al dia siguiente la prendi y puuf otra ves se reinicio y tuve que hacer lo mismo.
Entonces yo pienso que el WinXP me ha modificado algo, y trate restaurarla a fabrica, esto no lo pude hacer puesto que la persona que me formateo la primera vez elimino el RECOVERY y hasta ahora no eh encontrado solucion y eh tenido que utilizar otra computadora... Espero una pronta respuesta...se los agradeceria mucho!!

I just had a new Motherboard installed in my Dell 6720 laptop and everything works great again. With a new MB I now have a new Product Key for the OS. Following is the sequence of my current problem.

1. I had been running on an SSD cloned from the original HDD. I removed the SSD and installed the original HDD to get the computer repaired by Dell.
2. After completion of the repairs, I used the new Product Key to activate Windows successfully on the original HDD.
3. Reinstalled the SSD and booted up normally.
4. Had occasion to reboot numerous times never thinking to activate Windows again on the SSD.
5. Now when SSD is installed windows will not boot. Powering up results in immediate display of UEFI boot Options menu.

Query... Is there some limit on how many times the OS can be booted before windows activation is required? Is there, in fact, any relationship between failure to boot and windows activation?

A:Solved: Windws Activation

NO - there is no relationship between how many times the system can be booted and activation.
HOWEVER in windows 8 of course as part of their continuing battle against piracy Microsoft included in the programming a requirement that windows 8 be activated before it could be used.


Normally this is done automatically as soon as the system is booted and connected to the internet.

although an HP thread this is very relevant

In your case, the new motherboard is a hardware change that requires re-activation - therefore that is why the new product key, embedded in the firmware, I think - is then used.

The reason as I see it why the SSD now goes direct to the UEFI boot options is not per se the lack of activation, but because the replacement of the HDD with the SSD and the setting of the UEFI was not correctly carried out

That all said, you can presumably replace the hard drive and boot back to that - I hope.

One aspect that confuses me is that this was posted by you

I've been using Windows 7 exclusively for a few months now both at home and work, and while I love most of the new stuff, there's a couple of things that are still really bugging me about it, and I wondered if any of you know how to stop it?

Firstly I've re-added the quicklaunch and am not using the new style shortcuts as I use multiple instances of most of my programs at any one time, which the super bar doesn't seem suited to. Plus having shortcuts and running apps mixed in together drives me crazy.

Having quicklaunch back and setting it to always expand running apps solves this, but I lose the ability to use win + num on the keyboard to open the first 10 items. This was a feature I used a LOT in Vista and not having it really annoys me.

My question is, can I either move that keyboard shortcut back to the quicklaunch OR seperate running apps and shortcuts from each other on the superbar, so the shortcut stays where it is. This would essentially turn it back into quicklaunch.

My second issue is the right click menu for programs on the superbar. The new context menu has yet to prove useful to me, I don't keep recent documents lists and most apps don't support it anyway. The menu appears above the item rather than where you click on it so the close button is much higher, which means I always miss it, and continue to even after months of using it. As this is how I usually close apps, it's getting very frustrating. On top of both of these issues, the "close" item d... Read more

Hello Moredhel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

First Issue:
Only the pinned programs on the taskbar will use the Windows key + #(1to0) to open them with. You can add a Ctrl+Alt+letter keyboard shortcut for the Quick Launch items though. The pinned icons that have a open window for it will be highlighted to help tell the difference between them.

Second Issue:
You can press Shift then right click on the pinned icon to see the context menu for it instead of the jump list one.

Hope this helps,

Hey all
I just realised that whenever i use Ventrilo on my Windows 7(i upgraded it from Windows Vista) i always have incredible lags and very high pings just around 5k+(it always goes up when i'm trying to speak) It's really strange as i can use my Teamspeak,Skype,World of Warcraft and Call od Duty 4 without any problems (pings below 100 there), also my vent used to work correctly on Windows Vista.Any solution?

I am sure you are tech savvy enough and this is going to sound stupid but have you tried running it as admin? I had problems with Vent on my Laptop with Vista. As far as WIndows 7 goes, i have heard it works better.

To permanately run a program as an administrator, right click and go to properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and toward the bottom there will be a checkbox for running the program as an administrator. Check it and apply settings.

A:will i be able to install xp on a windws 7 operating

Not a stupid question.If I am following your question correctly.You can install a Windows 32 bit version on a 64 bit supported system, but you can not install a 64 bit version on a 32 bit only supported system.The processor has to support the 64 Bit OS, a 64 Bit processor can support a 32 bit, but a 32 bit processor can not support 64 bit.Most would ask you why you would want to install the 32 bit on a 64 bit system, if you also have the 64 bit version, because 64 bit versions of OSes do not have as many vulnerabilities as the less secure 32 bit version.Windows 7 retail packaged DVDs come with both a 32 bit and a separate 64 bit dvdrom disk.

It can if it's producing excessive REIN, read Kitz's article on this ::. Kitz - REIN .::

Usually a change of channel in the router is sufficient to resolve this, but if it's a really electrically noisy motor, then it will be down to putting some distance between the two and even if just temporarily to prove/disprove if this is the cause of the interference.

If this is a recent problem then it could point to the motor(s) starting to wear or if it's down to any failing suppressors if fitted.

Is the unit for the filtration unit submerged or is it sitting near/on the tank.

I don't know if it will be possible for you to encase either of these to shield them in some way which may help and also as a test if it's impractical to site the router and your computer elsewhere.

Hello all,

I have a client with a Windows 7 machine running services for other machines in their office.  They have told me that when they come back in on Monday, the computer is just off; no lights, no sound, does not just wake up at when you press a key or move
the mouse.  I had almost thought that the computer installed updates, but it normally restarts, not shuts down.
I checked the options in Power Management, but it was already set to not shutdown after any idle period.  I tried configuring it to restart every night at 9PM, to see if that would prevent it from just randomly shutting down, but that didn't work.
After checking in Event Viewer, I found this:

The process C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe (USER-PC) has initiated the power off of computer USER-PC on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
Reason Code: 0x500ff
Shutdown Type: power off
Log Name: System
Source: USER32
Logged: 5/16/2016 8:34:56AM
EVENT ID: 1074
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
Computer: User-PC
I'm still trying to find a way to prevent an automatic shutdown.  If anyone would have more information, that would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hello I brought my laptop to the shop were i bought it because I had some issues with my screen and also my ethernet connection broke of. So when I got it back they installed windows on my HD and not on my SSD so now my laptop is much slower because windows does not run on my SSD. I want to install windows on my SSD but if i reset my computer to the factory settings it is still on my HD. Then I was thinking if I just install a clean version of windows (that I downloaded from microsoft) on my PC. Then I can instal it where I want to. My question is, do I lose my warranty if I do that? Or are there any other solutions for this problem. Thanks in advance Kind regardsThomas

A:Windws Update error 8024402C

Hello and Welcome -
Here are some known articles for you to start with -
What is the Knowledge Base(KB) article number(s) of the failing Windows Updates?
This issue might be caused by a program running on the computer that's preventing Windows Update Services (SVCHOST) from accessing the Internet, if computer is connected to a network at work or an incorrect Domain Name System (DNS) setting for the network connection can also cause this error.
Method 1:I would suggest you to try the steps in the article and check if it helps.Windows Update error 8024402Chttp://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows7/windows-update-error-8024402c
Method 2:
If the issue is still not resolved you may try the steps in the knowledge base article and check.Unable to install updates in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2509997
You stated that you did a "fresh reinstal the OS", do you mean that you fully reinstalled Windows7 ??
Thank You -
