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.)

Hi,
I have Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB and I would like to enable the account auto login after resume sleep/standby.
If I go in "Sign in options", there are various functionality (Windows Hello, Password, PIN, Privacy) but there is not "Require sing-in" with the ability to choose whether to sign in after standby or not.
Can I enable this feature through another way (for example through Group Policy or regedit)?
Thanks in advance.

Hi all
Previously the  "Save Picture"  box would put a web generated title in the box and automatically selected JPEG.  Now the title box reads "untitled" and the only file options offered are "png" & "bmp" 

Please note that a similar post has appeared, but the solution did not match the fault.  I'm seeking to restore the automatic response to save picture, that might have been upset by antivirus clean-up programme.

Thank youin advance for considering my problem

I'm pretty sure I'm overlooking something really simple, but how do you change the Sign-in/Login Screen picture in Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

This is the sign-in page I get when I boot the PC (it automatically signs in, as I use Bitlocker password instead):


These are the settings I have set in Settings > Personalisation > Lockscreen. I have the Lock Screen set to 'Picture', and 'Show lock screen background picture on sign-in screen' set to 'On', but Windows still uses it's own photo (the beach pic).

Is there another setting I'm overlooking?

Just installed Windows 10 on my primary laptop and the lock screen is a solid blue (if I change my theme color, the lock screen changes too). However, I have Windows Spotlight turned on. I've tried setting a static picture or slideshow as the background. I also confirmed that the files needed for Windows Spotlight are indeed downloaded onto my computer. It just refuses to change.

It's worth noting that on my secondary computer with Windows Insider builds, I have, and have been having, the same problem. Any ideas as to how to fix it?


My lock screen (apparently you can't screenshot the lock screen):


My settings app:


The folder where Windows Spotlight stores images:

A:Windows 10 Lock Screen Background Doesn't Show Up (stays theme color)

And blue is the accent color for that theme, correct?

After installing Windows 10 on my laptop my lock screen is experiencing the same problem as you, as well as in the desktop. In the desktop I found out that if I set a specific picture or slideshow and set the taskbar to detect color, the taskbar will switch colors to match the picture(s) as if they were displaying, but the pictures themselves don't actually appear on either the desktop or lockscreen.

If we are having an identical problem, that would mean that the pictures are still displaying, but the accent colors are taking priority over them, in a sense.

When I hit the Windows & Print Screen keys, it is supposed to generate a picture of my Desktop into a Folder, within Pictures, labelled “Screenshots.”
But there is no such "ScreenShots" folder there!
What should I do? If I simply create a new folder, and label it “Screenshots,” will do that do the trick?  Or is there a more complicated fix?

Hey,
I have a HP Pavilion notebook. A bit older I think. It had built in windows Vista Home Premium. Somehow my hard disk crashed and I bought a new one. I installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and updated to service pack 1. I made a system image using windows default recovery console. Everything was fine. But today I needed to restore my computer to a previous restore point. Every time I press F8 to get to the advanced boot option I see everything is okay except the "repair your computer" option. Somehow the "repair your computer" option disappeared. I tried ctrl+F11 button and the F11 button too. F11 button worked for my previous vista home premium but for Win-7 it's the F8 key. Can anyone help me with this please? How may I get the "repair your computer" option back? Is there any way to edit advanced to boot option to get that option back? I would be needing it in case of system image recovery. Please I don't want to reinstall the O/S once again. Please somebody help me.

A:Advanced boot option doesn't show the option "repair your computer"!

On my clean OS install, the "repair your computer" option also does not appear in the F8 Advanced Boot Options list.

You can access this option by booting from a System Repair CD/DVD. A system repair CD is a must have.

Hi all,

I'm puzzling this one. In the folder options when I choose 'view' the radio button to show the hidden files is missing. I've already checked the registry at the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced/Hidden

and everything seems ok (value for 'Type' is 'group' etc.). Using the XP tweak (Kelly's corner #155) shows the hidden files, but the button still missing.

Another thing that I encountered with was that from the start menu the "Help and Support" not working. Again, the registry seems fine, and the process is activated (started). This came up when I tried to use system restore option - with no success.

Virus scan didn't find alerts of any kind

To make a long story short- below is the log file of HiJackThis. Please review it and reply if you see something to be concerned with for repairing my computer.

Ok I found the answer (after quite a lot searching), as follows:

1. for the 'Hidden files' radio button - I used methods 1 and 2 from here-
http://www.technize.com/2007/05/13/s...s-not-working/

2. for the helpcenter I just reinstalled it as described here -
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/rebuildhelp.htm
note that the file 'dataspec.xml' is needed to be available for this, and it can't be done directly from the XP CD. The thing that worked for me was to insert the XP CD, and use the file that in my computer (C:\) and afterwards another file on the CD.

Again, all this happened with no virus detection, so I believe that there is no infection. However, if someone has remarks on the HiJackThis log I've put, feel free to add them.

Hello,

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot. Lately, I noticed my User Account Picture was not the picture I had selected. In addition, the Background Picture for my Windows 7 Home Premium edition log on screen was changed. This happened after running a program that is for exams at school which reboots your computer into a safe mode where the only program available is a rudimentary word processor.

I contacted the company that makes that software, Examsoft, and they told me how to get my default logon picture for my Windows Logon background back.

To address the User Account picture, I went into Control Panel > User Accounts and attempted to "change picture". This is not an option, however, for my administrator user account. It is an option for my guest account. I tried cloning my account without the bad .dat files, but that didn't work either as the new account I had created, also an administrator account, did not display a "change picture" option in control panel either.

I ran sfc /scannow, and it found no errors.

I am not sure what to do. Has anyone encountered this? Can you please help me?

Attached is a screen shot:

Thank You.

Hey. I recently reformatted my hard drive. Although I have a Dell XPS laptop, I didn't have the disc and reformatted it using my friend's Dell Inspiron disc. We did, however, log into my account on the Dell site and we installed the drivers that originally came with my system.

Everything seems to be fine, except for two problems... (1) the screen resolution feels "squished", like the dimensions aren't right, and (2) when I go to shut down, the option to stand by is greyed out.

Any thoughts?
 

A:"stand by" option greyed out / screen resolution squished

This seems like your video card drivers aren't installed correctly. I would double check what model video card you have. Go to the Dell site and plug in your Service Tag #. That should pull up what drivers you need to load. If the video drivers aren't loaded correctly it may very well cause the standby/hibernate function to not work.

I have had the machine for 2 years and never had any serious issues and I have kept drivers and Xp updated (except I havenīt installed SP2 yet).

except for one thing: one of her original complaints was that her desktop background had recently reverted to all RED with this image in the middle that looks something like a biohazard logo.

i tried changing the desktop background via the control panel, and it changed momentarily and then reverted back only moments later. I ran avg anti-virus and spybot to sweep her machine of any bugs/viruses (and found quite a few). when i left the red desktop was gone.

then i got a call a couple of days later saying it had returned, and not only that but her sister (who has the same exact system) was having the same exact problem. actually, i think i remember hearing someone ELSE talking about this too recently.

Whats more troubling is that I can go to the registry and set all the right keys and it still wont work. I am setting ScreenSaverIsSecure to 1 and NoAutoReturnToWelcome to 0.

Hello! I'm using Windows 8.1 on my PC, Home Edition I believe. And I've run into a strange issue where I try and update the image for my Lock screen, but the only time I see the new image is when I shut down and start up my computer. Whenever I sign out of my account, the "old" lock screen is what appears. I've tried searching Google for solutions that have included looking in the Registry editor and manually resetting the System Data folder by deleting it and letting Windows make it new. However, the change clearly is saved in the system as it does show up when I start the computer up. Further, whenever I go to PC settings, it is always properly "set" to the new image, it simply doesn't show it when I sign out. Any idea what the problem might be?

A:Lock Screen - Only "half" Updates

To add a little to this. I also have Windows 8.1 on my Laptop, and it's hooked into the same account. When I "sign out" on my Laptop, the new lockscreen appears. This issue happens solely on the Desktop.

Hello, a couple of weeks ago, some random ads started playing in the background of my computer, mostly when I started Chrome. I couldn't tell the source of these ads since I didn't have any other programs running, but Chrome. This has happened to me almost every day along with these annoying pop out windows with a message: "Missing Plugin! Click here to download". Somebody recommended to run TDSSKiller, which I did, but it didn't find any threats.

I really hope you can help me out with this one. Thanks in advance!

Hello Galadriel87, and welcome to the forum.

My name is nunped and I'll be helping you with any malware problems. I'm an Undergraduate trainee here, and as such my posts to you have to first be checked by a Teacher, because of this my replies to your posts may be slightly delayed. Please be patient and I'm sure we'll be able to resolve your problems.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.

Here are some guidelines for the cleaning process to run as easy as possible.

Even though the tutorial on this forum says there should be a custom option, I don't seem to have it.

Any thoughts on how can I bring it back?

P.S. Does anyone know what that "winrt--{***}-" folder is?

A:"Custom" option missing from "Search again in"

Anyone? Is it the same on your machines too, or just me?

I've noticed that I no longer have the Play To option for media files on my Windows 8.1 machine. I have 2 digital media renderers active on my network, a WDTV Live and an Xbox 360. Both of these devices are visible on the network from the Windows 8.1 machine.

On 4 other Windows 7 systems in my house the Play To option is there, and I used to have it on this 8.1 machine, too. I've tried restarting but the option is still missing.

I'm trying to fix my brother's computer after he opened a trojan attached to an email. The email was the one saying your credit card had been charged for airline tickets.

The computer is a Dell Dimension 3100 running Windows XP SP2.

The first problem is that after normal login there is a blue screen with a yellow window in the window with the message

"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

There are no icons visible. The only action I can perform is CTL-ALT-DEL to bring up the Windows Task Manager. I told my brother to start in Safe Mode from which he scanned the computer using AVG Free Edition which was installed before the infection. This did not fix the problem.

Starting Safe Mode I now get a black screen with Safe Mode in the corners and the operating system name at top. The blue login screen then comes up with Administrator and my brothers account. I click on Administrator and I get the same black screen as before with Safe Mode in the corners and the writing at top. My brothers account does the same. There are no icons or Start button visible.

Again, the only program I can bring up is the Windows Task Manager. Using that, I managed to install and run SmitfraudFix which was given as a solution to "Spyware detected" screen. After rebooting this did not fix the problem. I also installed SpyHunter 3.5.11 which found Zlob.Trojan, Rogue.AntivirusXP 2008 plus some other ... Read more

I've been using Windows 10 for just over one year. For some reason the Lock Screen/Sign-in screen shows three users. All three are me in three iterations. I find also that when trying to save some excel and word documents I receive messages saying that i am not allowed to save to this folder or that folder. I am able to save to the desk top and then drag and drop the document into the folder that I need to place it in. I know that this must have something to do with "permissions". Not sure how to fix that. One of the accounts that shows up is the initial account that I created back when hotmail.com was around. Any ideas/advice on these issues? When i updated to Windows 10, pretty certain that i followed all of the instructions, although that has been over 1 year now. Thank you in advance...cheers and beers to all!

I recently installed Examsoft on my computer (a program to take exams in law school). After I installed it and rebooted my computer, some weird things happened. When I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del, the only option available was "Switch User" and all the other ones were gone (Lock this computer, Start task manager, etc.). I eventually downloaded the registry keys that were needed to get back all the other options. The options to restart, shut down, hibernate, and sleep were also missing whe I clicked on the arrow on the start menu. I also downloaded the registry key to get those back.

However, the problem that still remains is that when I open User Accounts in control panel, the option to change the user picture is gone and on the start menu the box that is supposed to contain the picture above my username is blank. Also under user accounts, the "Manage your file encryption certificates" option is also gone. Does anyone know how I can get these options back? Thanks.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

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

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Some background first. I have three 1920x1080 monitors. The central monitor is Landscape. The two side monitors are portrait, used for working with web browsers, code, communication . . . I find it easer to deal with large amounts of text in portrait, where I can continuously track a lot of text without tracking back and forth across the entire width of a widescreen monitor.

So, I'm trying to set a background. It works fine. It's abstract-ish, so I set the 'stretch' option. That works fine on the central monitor.

On the two side monitors, the image is compressed between the left and right sides of the screen, but does not stretch to reach the top or bottom of the screen. The extent that they seem to extend up and down seem to exactly match the dimensions and alignment of the central screen. If this is so, then it would mean that on the portrait monitors, the background is filling a 1080x1080 block in the center of a 1080x1920 display.

The only thing that functions properly is 'Tile'. None of the other options seem to produce any change in the image displayed. (In some of the options, though not all, this would be normal.)
