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 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

One feature I really liked in XP was the ability to look in a folder through My Computer and sort the files by extension. For example if I wanted to get all .jpg files to one side of the folder as I looked for a file, I could click View, Arrange Icons By, Type and make that happen. I don't see that feature in Windows 7. I'm using W7Pro and can't find that or a similar feature anywhere. Is it here and I just haven't found it? TIA

Hey everyone,
        I am trying to get the REST queries to work with the sharepoint end points instead of graph end points. I first created an app with relevant permissions and have given it the admin consent. Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end
point with https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com as resource. I am then using the access token retrieved to give the rest call to https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/_api/v2.0/drives/b!3indYSbqZ0-hVSPnCgIZy-2xDMh7jH9AuQnEzJMc6TEfQoSJvJT-R6tT0lFBQiPr/root/delta
but it is failing with "error":{"code":"generalException","message":"General exception while processing"}}. The REST response code is 401 Unauthorized. I have filed a Microsoft support ticket but they
have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

Hello All,

I started a few weeks ago on the PowerShell programing and I got my answer from here only. So am putting up the error that I am getting now to get some help again.

Scenario : I wrote a script that checks a Folder on a server and counts the number of files in it.Then when it finds the resulting number to be more then a specific value(threshold) it sends up a mail to the required alias. To break it all along the portion to send a mail is generated through DBmail using another .PS1 file.

In the PS1 file containing the main checking of number of files I am trying to pass 2 parameters :

1. Folder path on the server
2. the Threshold value of number of files

Now when I created a job to run this powershell script as :

& "C:\PowerShell\Power.PS1" \\XXXX\\c$\Documents and Settings\ABC\Local Settings\Temp 10


IT fails with the error :

A job step received an error at line 1 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is '& "C:\PowerShell\Power.ps1" \\XXXX\\c$\Documents and Settings\ABC\Local Settings\Temp 10'. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'Cannot convert value "and" to type "System.Int32". Error: "Input string was not in a correct format." '. Process Exit Code -1. The step failed.


I really can not move forward on this.

Please help.

A:PowerShell issue ('Cannot convert value "and" to type "System.Int32")

Just to add for reference Below is the code for the Power.Ps1 file that I have used :

There is a Lanier LD117 Printer recently installed in the office, which is connected to the network, to be used by the two computers in the office (both are Windows 7 equipped). However, the printer shows "offline" on the computers when the printer
is on.
Secondly, the printer says there is a paper type/size mismatch. After changing the printer (and the computer) settings to the correct ones, the printer still says its mismatched. And the confusing thing is if you select FormFeed manually on the printer,
the documents that are waiting will print anyways, even though it says it cant and even though the computers say its offline.

How can I reset the system so the documents will print automatically upon command via the two computers?

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

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?

Do System Restore Points of type Backup require the actual System Image Backup?

I create a system image backup automatically every week using windows 8 system image backup(that hidden feature). So of course ALL my weekly System Restore Points are of type "BACKUP" i.e. System Image Restore Point & NOT "SYSTEM" i.e. "Automatic Restore Point" see pic below:

When the system image is created it also creates a "System Image Restore Point" of TYPE = "Backup", so my question is, does restoring my computer to one of these restore points actually require the corresponding "system image backup" to make the system restore point work?

I refer only to making use of the system restore point in system protection AND NOT restoring a system image to, for example, a new hard drive.

I hope my question is clear.Thanks Chris

A:Do System Restore Points of type "Backup" require the Bkup

When the system image is created it also creates a "System Image Restore Point" of TYPE = "Backup", so my question is, does restoring my computer to one of these restore points actually require the corresponding "system image backup" to make the system restore point work?

I would say yes it needs the image file. Using the disk cleanup utility you have the option of deleting old system restore backups and shadow copies I believe. And for someone with a decent number of backups this is a massive amount of storage regained because it deletes old images (except the last one) so these backups can get large. So without the image file, the entry is removed and it can't be restored to that point without that image file. Hopefully I understood the question correctly enough.

hey guys,

i was working on a computer the other day helping someone "clean it up" and make it run faster. i did all the normal "clean up" stuff, got her back online, pc running much faster, everyone's happy.

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.

has anyone heard of this? and then the obvious question being: how do i get rid of it?

A:what is best free "start8" type prog that will boot to desktop in win8

You may want to hold off until the Win 8.1 update, due next week, is installed. Its supposed to add more "desktop" functionality.

However, I have Start8. $4.95 didn't break the bank.

Here's the problem. For some oddball reason, the font size has changed in the "Normal" box to Times New Roman 10 in some of my .doc files, but other .doc files remain the default TNR 12 size.
How do I set it so the Normal reading is Times new Roman 12 as it was for all .doc files before?

G'day everyone

After doing some Googling I discovered that it is impossible in Windows 7 to sort files by file extension -- one can only sort by file type, which depends on the file type description. This means that if I want to sort by file type, I need to rename the type descriptions of all my most commonly used files.

In addition, the only place where I can see a file's extension is in the file name itself, and not e.g. in the status bar when a file is selected. In Windows 7, the file type description (not the file extension) is also in the status bar.

In other words, in Windows 7 all files labelled e.g. "Opera Web Document" are sorted as if they have the same file type, regardless of whether they are .html, .htm, .mht, etc. And if I select a file and look at the status bar, the file's type is indicated as "Opera Web Document", without any clue as to the file extension. The only way for me to see the file extension is to increase the width of the "Name" column until the end of the file name becomes visible.

So... my question is:

Is there an easy way to simply rename the file type descriptions? I see that my JPG files are named "JPG File" and my PNG files are named "PNG" file, which is extremely useful. What I now want is to rename my HTML, HTM and MHT files' file types to "HTML File", "HTM File" and "MHT File", and the same would apply to all file types I often use (e.g. DO... Read more

I've discovered Default Programs Editor but that only does one file at a time, using a very long, cumbersome route. But... it works. Something quicker with the possibility to automate would be nice, though.

Is there a way in 10 to add modifiers or switches to a default program?

For example, I would like a .xlsx Microsoft Excel file to open with C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\EXCEL.EXE" /e "%1 (That is, adding " /e "%1 to the command line of the .exe file)

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations lets me change the default program, but not HOW the program opens.
When I click on a file type, a pop up only gives me the option of keeping the existing default, or looking for a different app. But no right-click option or otption to modify how the program opens (as I believe there was in XP & 7).
(Also, is there a better way I could have described the issue in the subject line?)

Thank you,
Ed

A:How do you edit default program for file type to include "/" option?

I would think you should be able to edit the shortcut to the executable with command switches or create a batch file to run using those same switches. Nothing should have changed with this process in Windows 10.

We have upgraded our systems to Windows 7 (From XP). I have setup Indexing on our server and the employees use the Search Bar (upper right on a window) to search for a file they are looking for. However we have over 100,000 folders that we are looking though. Is there a way to set the Search to default type:Folder? Or have it search just folder names instead of showing files also?

If I type in "12345" it will take a minute to search everything and give me 20 files+1 folder.
If I type in "12345 type:folder" it will take 10 seconds and give me 1 folder.

When the employees are on the phone, quicker the better, and having them put "type:folder" after everything is time consuming for them.

I've looked around online and i'm not sure if i can do this.

The computers using this are running
Windows 7 Pro x64
Updated to Current

Server is Windows 2008 (Indexed folder the employees are searching in)
Updated to Current

You'll probably want to go with something like FileSearchEX to avoid retraining. There are a few others but this one closely matches your question.

hey guys,

i was working on a computer the other day helping someone "clean it up" and make it run faster. i did all the normal "clean up" stuff, got her back online, pc running much faster, everyone's happy.

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.

has anyone heard of this? and then the obvious question being: how do i get rid of it?

Is it the active desktop notification?

Hello, and first of all thanks to whoever you are for taking the time to read this.

I am currently trying to get windows networking to work with an old laptop and have come to several issues. I am running Windows XP Home SP2.

I am able to connect to my network via the wireless connection and ping other computers on the network successfully. However, I can in no fashion connect to other windows machines through explorer.

When I attempt to "View Workgroup Computers" nothing at all is displayed, not even my own computer.

When I get the ipconfig information from the console it reports my node as "Unkown". I have followed several tutorials on how to reset the node of the network connection through the registry and have followed them all, I have always executed the edits and rebooted, however no matter what entries were in the registry my issue remained the same.

When I select the network connection in explorer and view in the left hand tool bar the little snippet of info under "Details" reads Peer-to-Peer, which I assume is the node type, which I have heard can prevent windows networking from operating correctly when enabled.

None of the tutorials I have found so far have been able to help me, perhaps my problem is a little more specific?

Once again, thanks in advance for your help!

"File Error
Exception of Type System
OutofMemoryException was thrown."

The above error message occurred while trying to copy my XP OS partition from my WinMe partition using a program which I believe is using xcopy which I downloaded from http://www.lexunfreeware.com/

I am trying to backup my programs which are on one partition, my WinXP OS which is on another partition and my data which is on another partition.

I am backing them up to a 2nd hard drive.

I was successful in backing up the "program" partition but received the error on backing up the XP Partition.

Any ideas what may have caused it?

I was looking at the content of some .com-playback file types using the "open with" command and then selecting VLC player. Unfortunately I accidentally had the box ticked to open all files of this type with VLC from now on.

The files were originally designated as being opened with an "unknown application". I can set these files to be opened by default with any program, but as it is not on the list how do I change it back to open with "unknown application"?

And now the .com-playback file types cannot be opened again as it used to.

Any advice appreciated , thanks.

Hi all, This is a great forum you have here! OK I am having a very low-tech month I think. I am trying to trouble shoot a problem with my system which had been running reasonably well until now -- I say reasonably well because lately I seem to have hit some hardware challenges. More on that later, however (if required).

In order to trouble shoot my issues, I find myself needing to reinstall Windows 7 (My boot disk which is an SSD seems to cause the system to hang when it is connected so I am trying to install a new verion of Win 7 to troubleshoot the other from). Now I have ample space on a couple of drives so that is where I targeted. Everything runs fine in the installation process, the system reboots and I am presented the screen to enter a system name. I enter a name but the "next" button is protected and not clickable . Does this mean anything to anyone?

This seems very rudimentary but frankly I can't find anything to make it go
