Thunderbird malfunction on W8

Q: Thunderbird malfunction on W8

I can open all folders on the left pane except one of them. This is one of user created folders for archiving received emails. There are several other folder for the same purpose. I wonder why this particular one can not be opened.
What I have done so far includes compacting files,reinstalling the Thunderbird and trying on other W8 machine.. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Thunderbird malfunction on W8

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 recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

I just took my Thunderbird files off one drive and put them on another, as well as changing the destination within the e-mail program itself. I had to import my old settings as it assumed I was a new user, but now I can't get my old e-mails to show up in the inbox. I can see the files in their folder, but have no idea how I get Thunderbird to display them again. Any help?

I just discovered that even though I thought I had changed the destination folder Thunderbird was still using a folder in the old drive. So I just gave up and copied the mail files back onto that drive. And now they show up again. Oh well.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.
- Connected everything listed above, plus the smaller fan, turned an... Read more

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....
?? CHROME, AVAST, FIREFOX all show DEP (permanent). All others DISABLED.....
?? setting /noexecute=AlwaysOn works, all processes DEP'd, BUT disallows HP digital monitor (can print, cannot scan or retrieve printer info).
I do have Administrator privileges but thought I noticed a popup (IIRC) re two items (processes?) not functioning, CIMV2? perhaps and one other. WBEMTEST checked for DEP 3 (OptOut), verified it was set (I forget the Superclass now, under root/cimv2).

I have Win 7 Pro and my browser is FireFox v. 30 - lately when I use the scroll bar it goes out of control and wildly scrolls the pages rapidly up and down. Most of the time I can stop the unwanted action by repeatedly clicking on the scroll button. It is not a crisis situation but somewhat annoying when it occurs and I lose the page I wanted to use.

I have not, so far,noticed this uncontrolled scrolling issue in other programs and applications which suggests that it may not be a Windows related aberration, but I am far from an expert in Win 7 issues.

Has anyone had a similar problem and if so have they found a way to resolve it?

Hello all,

A good friend of mine was using her laptop (IBM Thinkpad A31 running WinXP) and spilled a very small amount of liquid (soda) on the Pause/Break-Scroll Lock/Print key block. A few minutes after, the laptop BSOD'd, giving her a 'HARDWARE MALFUNCTION' error and ***SYSTEM HALTED***. She also believes that she may have bumped it while attempting to clean the spill.

Subsequently, when she attempts to turn on the computer, the fan/power light come on (sounds as though it's booting regularly) but the screen remains black and there is an error beep sequence of 4 (short) beeps, 4 times over, and then stops (though the power light/fan remain on) like:

4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-4

This was perplexing to me, as it's no error code I've ever heard of. She believes that the error was caused by the liquid, but it was a very small amount, and was cleaned immediately.

Any help on this would be appreciated.
 

A:Laptop Malfunction

Well, soda is one of the worst things to pour in your laptop! I think at a minimum you need to have it partially disassembled to determine how much of that "very small amount" got into something critical.

I think she's very likely right about the soda, since it's very corrosive.

Well, I have bought a wireless mouse (CLiPtec brand), but I realized that it doesn't work or fit with Windows 10. I tried to troubleshoot the device but it ended up with "DTMB BDA TV USB has a driver problem". I also opened the device manager and made sure that the DTMB BDA TV USB is up-to-date. But, still, the problem never gone.
I opened the properties of DTMB BDA TV USB in Device Manager and it tells me that the device cannot start (Code 10).
Can anyone please tell me the solutions? I tried to search the newest update for DTMB BDA TV USB (For Windows 10) in Google, but it end up with no result (there are only Windows 8 and below..).
PS : I tried uninstalled the DTMB BDA TV USB and plugged in again the USB of the mouse. The mouse can move for the starting seconds, but soon, it can't be function anymore.

A:Malfunction of DTMB BDA TV USB

You are speaking about a CLiPtec mouse, but also about a DTMB BDA TV USB.

Are the problems of these two devices connected?

A normal mouse should also work without installing special drivers. So I would basically try uninstalling the mouse driver and see, if that helps. Note that Windows 10 by default will search for new drivers through WIndows Update and if it finds some, then it will install them automatically. If that happens, you should deactivate automatic driver installation.

So I dont know what the heck happened, but on my desktop computer I have been locked out of everything..

My only account it (Home)
it WAS administrator

but now its guest, I cant make any changes or do anything that requires administrator privileges unless I get a
UAC box where it says Yes/No at the bottom but yes is grayed out unless I

"enter the administrators password"

which to my knowledge I have never set one....

I have tried the back door of changing rights to this account = failed
opened cmd prompt to enable the hidden administrator = failed

so without completely reformatting because i never set a backup im hooped.... any ideas

A:I'm having a major malfunction

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes Download in Safe Mode with Networking if necessary.

If this fails try booting to run a full scan with one of the FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs Download List.

If it cleans up infection then try SFC SCANNOW Command or SFC SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

Now try regular boot. If it fails again try Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE - Windows 7 Forums.

Unfortunately if you cannot access Hidden Admin and have no functionality from your Admin Account, then unless you can run a Repair Install it may be beyond Repair. Best to invest further time in doing a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which compiles everything that works best in tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here, and has been used by 1.5 million consumers without a single complaint.

Do you by any chance have a wireless or wired microsoft mouse?

I have had a similar issue with my Wired Microsoft Mouse and its "Intellipoint" Driver

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911895

Some claim this issue only occurs with the wireless versions of certain microsoft devices. I found that for me, It occur whenever Intellipoint 6.2 was installed. The Same version of Intellipoint also caused my Vista Sidebar to cease working... as detailed here http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista-7/805947-solved-windows-sidebar-crashes-every.html

Anyway if you have a microsoft mouse/device that uses Intellipoint try removing the intellipoint software and checking if the issue still occurs. Or Try upgrading to the latest version of Intellipoint, which at the time of writing is 6.3
