Preferred Solution: My Lenovo tab 3 always have an issues with the apps saying unfortunately it stopped

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.)


My apps suddenly stopped working..I downloaded and ran the app store troubleshooter and it detected 2 problems..security changes and settings..it said that it had made changes and so I restarted and still the apps don't work..I re-ran the troubleshooter again and again it said it made changes to my system..still no change.
I ran sfc/scannow and the integrity check came back normal no issues found. I can run the administrator apps...resource monitor/disk cleanup etc etc but anything else/windows store/weather/mail all don't work..anymore advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.


Edit: I also attempted to "refresh" the PC and it encountered a problem and couldn't complete it.
So that may be another issue I'll have to ask about.

Apps and Tiles Not Working or Responding: Fix in Windows 8

I installed my RTM Technet Win 8 pro as an upgrade of my Win 7 ult.

Everything was golden... For awhile.

After uninstalling some stuff that I wouldn't use/and or designed for tweaking Win 7, etc, some metro apps no longer work.

But.. Some do.

Example: Minesweeper works, but won't "login" to xbox live.
But, the store app, flashes up, drops back to start.

At one point, when doing all the installs and uninstalls, I disabled UAC, but when done, re-enabled it.

Would Avast Internet security mess with metro (or whatever it's called now) apps?

A:Metro apps stopped working? Not all tho.

It was AVAST Internet Security.

BE careful uninstalling. It has keyboard hooks that don't uninstall......

The only programs I've loaded in past 2 months are SpyHunter to get rid of malware and SideSync for my Samsung Note 5, and Prospect by LegalShield, a CRM. Thanks in advance for help.

1. Wanted to post this issue with Windows 8 PRO 64 bit recently.
2. My Apps stopped working and all recovery efforts failed to get them working again.
3. Ran several malware and anti-virus programs and still no help to get my Apps working again.
4. I click on an App and the display just returns to the start display.
5. So, I had to reinstall Windows 8 from scratch since none of the "RESTORE" listing would restore.
6. I had not made a "recovery drive" so that was not an option.

A:Apps stopped working and reinstall Windows 8 PRO 64 bit

welcome to the forum, crgurganus.
Remove any security related programs... and see what what happens.. or else try the refresh option using windows 8 installation disc, it is so because the security programs stop the modern apps from functioning properly... if the apps become well, install your security program once again with the most latest virus definitions and program update.

My Windows 10 Live apps (News, Money, Weather) used to update their content automatically. They have stopped doing that. Is there a setting or a process that needs to be running that would enable the content updates?

In trying to fix another problem I did stop some processes and disabled some on the Startup tab of Task Manager. (My bad!)

I hope some one has some insight on this. I've searched the web with no luck.
I have these two freeware games, Battle of Endor and Battle of Yavin, which I played on this computer when it ran Windows98SE with no problems. They were made with the Truevision3D engine using Visual Basic 6.0
Two weeks ago I did a format and installation of Windows XP Pro SP2, with all updates.
At first the games played fine, then every couple of tries the game would load, but only show a blank screen. The sound would work, and the game played, but I couldn't see anything.
When that happened I could restart the computer, and then the games would work again, for awhile. Now I'm just getting the black screen every time, but still the sound and the games still run, just with no visual.
I re-installed DirectX 9C(April), Visual Basic 6.0, .Net Framework 2.0 and my video card drivers, but no help.
I don't believe it's a video card problem, as all other games and applications are fine, just these two games are giving me problems.
I just did a repair install on XP, and that didn't help either. My next step will be another Format and install, but the problem will most likely come back after a while.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be gratefull. Something about blowing up TIE-fighters brings me back to my childhood!

I've also learned that if you add the website to your compatibility view list it'll also fix the problem. You can do this by going to the website you want to access then clicking on the settings icon in the upper right hand corner then go down to "compatibility
view settings" and in there just hit add, and it should work.

EDIT: Well, a little more hunting on the net, and I found the issue. During either the attack or the fix, IE's Lan settings had been set to proxy server being checked. Following a friend's instructions, I unchecked the box, restarted IE, and everything was fixed. So please close down this topic unless you have any follow up suggestions or ideas. Honestly, I don't even USE IE except as a backup. What a sneaky virus. ++--------------------------------------------++First off, I would like to apologize. I have had assistance from your forums before, and once my computer was running, I set to work on the tasks that had backed up while my computer was down.

I don't know how this happened or when. One day I noticed that the calculator app stopped working. Then I checked others and most of the essential apps that windows comes with including Store app is not working.
These apps which are not working flashes their windows only to close immediately.

Uninstalled some of the apps and reinstalled all of them. The only change is now there is an extra popup which says "This app can't open. See more infor in Store." Store is also not opening.

A:Windows apps stopped working and also some desktop applications.

Hello, one of the best features of Win 10 (in my opinion) is the in-place repair install, which I suggest is the most straightforward approach. It is much faster if your Windows is installed on a SSD. Many times on this forum broken apps, start menu, task bar are reported. Feel free to search the forum.

It's a good idea to precede this by running
chkdsk C: /F
from an admin level (elevated) command prompt
(windows key +X, click command prompt (admin)

An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed.
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
This will refresh Windows, after the manner of a Windows installation.
- all/most associations will be unchanged
- all your programs will be left installed
- you will lose any custom fonts
- you will lose any customised system icons
- you may need to re-establish your Wi-Fi connection
- you will need to redo Windows updates subsequent to the build you have used for the repair install
- Windows.old will be created
- system restore will be turned off- you should turn it on again and I recommend you manually schedule a daily restore point.
- you will need to redo any language downloads including the display language if you changed that)

This is one of the better features of Win10: as each major build comes out, that's your updated reference build, an... Read more

Several XBOX apps were working fine until 4/4/15. Since then I am unable to download new packs Ii.e. jigsaws). Resolved that MS Account is now logging entries into my history log as Security Challenge events from Internet Explorer.
The following explanation for Security Challenge is:
?We detected an unusual sign-in attempt with the correct password. (This might have been you, but we weren?t sure?for example, this might have happened on a new device we didn?t recognize.) To help protect your account, we required an extra security challenge.?

I have checked my MS account, and it is not set up for 2 Step security. I seem to be unable to set my device as a Trusted Device, and many of my Apps do not support additional security parameters.

I think the problem was triggered by Microsoft asking for verification of my account, where they sent me an email with a code to be entered manually into the menu. It verified, but now seems to be acting as a 2 Step verification even though I did not request that.

A:XBOX Apps stopped working and in app access account fail

I have tracked the fault down to two MS System library routines that are called by the Apps, but time out due to exceptions. I can see that these routines are triggering a response in Microsoft Account, so the problem is NOT due to corruption in my PC. I am convinced now that the problem is at the MS server end. For some reason, my PC is sending the correct request with a valid LIVE_ID password, but for some reason Microsoft Account handler is demanding extra verification data which my Apps are not set up to deal with. I think this is connected to the new 2Step verification process. I cannot turn that off since MS menu shows it is not enabled, and thus the menu 'button' to turn it off is not displayed. One possible solution may be to set up myDevice as a trusted device, but again the procedure described in the help screen does not describe the options displayed on the MS menu, so I cannot do that either.

All these problems seem to be related to the Microsoft Server end, so any suggestions to re install windows or do registry scans / fixes will not work. The path to provide the extra data that MS requires does not exist in theService libraries. These files that I have so far identified are: combase.dll and windows.networking.BackgroundTransfer.dll

LENOVO PhotoMaster (This one I uninstalled as it crashed my machine when I clicked on it)
LENOVO Bluetooth with enhanced data rate software
LENOVO Dependancy Package
LENOVO Easy camera

LENOVO Wireless phone wireless import
LENOVO One key recovery
LENOVO Phone companion
LENOVO Setting Dependancy package

I used Lenovo Settings on my Lenovo Yoga 3 11 for the battery conservations mode. So I was forced to install Lenovo Companion since it recently replaced Lenovo Settings.Ever since I did this, I have noticed the following:* Screen brightness keeps changing by itself slightly* Screen contrast keeps changing by itself slightly* Colours look muted and unsaturated, and filtered. Makes the sceen look worse than it should.* trackpad is only ignorred if the tablet mode is fully flat. The slightest opening causes the trackpad and keyboard to become sensitive. All of this irrespective of whether Dynamic Brighness Control is enabled or disabled in Lenvovo Companion hardware settings, and regarless of whether recommended hardware settings are used.Anyone else noticed anything similar? I'll report back after I've uninistalled the app to see whether any of these behaviours disappear.

A:Noticed issues ever since I installed Lenovo Companion (which replaced Lenovo Settings)

So I deactivated "Change brightness autoatically when lighting changes" in Windows Display Settings. This seems to have been the cause of the brightness and contrast changes, but the colours still look blander than I recall. Sorry to suspect Lenovov Companion so quickly, but the changes coincided with it's installation. Admittedly Windows 10 Fall edition just landed too.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed. I have done my fair share of google searches and many people have had these same issues too, but no good solutions outside of deep computer hacking, I don't want to have to do that on a brand new computer. Thanks for any and all help!

Hi everyone,
I have just started using one of Lenovo's hybrids, the Yoga 2 11, after using for a while a previous model (IdeaPad Yoga 11s).
Windows 8.1 on both.
Now, my new Lenovo surprised me with an interestingly annoying feature - it won't allow me to pin Windows apps to the taskbar. I've tried from the Start Apps menu and from everywhere. Only, I didn't try clicking on the app icon when it is running and shown on the taskbar - simply because it won't: there's no way to access the taskbar while an app is open unless returning to the desktop.
I'm quite a beginner but I don't understand why there are such differences when the operating system is the very same. All of this is referred to while in Laptop mode so I can't even see how Lenovo could have an influence on it.

If anyone out there ever had such an issue...

A:Lenovo hybrid - apps won't be shown/pinned on taskbar

Hello Armonia, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The modern apps are full screen in Windows 8.1, and will cover the taskbar. You can use step 3 or 5 to open the taskbar while you have a modern app open to see it.

Taskbar - Open in Windows 8.1

Resetting and clearing all pinned items on the taskbar may be able to help with not being able to "Pin to taskbar" if it's corrupted.

Hello Lenovo community!I'm dealing with this frustrating problem with my Lenovo W540 since some months ago. I hope someone can help me with that!Whenever I move a little bit my laptop, it makes a beep sound and it launches Calculator and Excel a lot of times. It also launches the search tool on windows and keeps typing & till I push the Esc bottun several times. So a slight move to my laptop results in 10 unwanted calculator and and Excel or Word windows opended while making numerous beep sounds. Once I went to BIOS to start into Ubuntu and see if the problem is with Windows and I noticed that even in Bios the beep sound persists and it kept changing the Bios options by itself while making beep sounds!I contacted the Lenovo support and they changed my keyboard a couple of month ago. The problème was gone for a couple of months and now it's back. My computer is still under warranty but since I use it everyday for my work, I really want to avoid waiting several weeks without my laptop so I've been trying to avoid the issue by not moving my laptop. But it's becoming unbearable now since even when I move the screen a little bit, the issue happens!Thank you for your help!

A:Lenovo W540 beeps and launches apps and types by i...

It is difficult to diagnose without actually seeing the machine.  If moving the base causes the problem, I would guess you have a short or bad connection in the touchpad or keyboard cable.  If moving the lid causes the problem, my guess is the cable into the lid (through the right hinge) that goes to the camera and microphone (also USB devices).  It also could be a bad USB chip on the motherboard

So I just bought and received a Lenovo Y700 15ISK - model 80NV. Everything works great, but I've noticed that when the laptop enters sleep mode, whether on its own or not, when I turn it back on, it goes through the start up process and any application I had open prior will be closed.  I did some digging around and came across this. I followed what it said and installed the audio driver and BIOS v35 (and subsequently, v52) but I'm still having the same problem. Any ideas on a solution? Thank you in advance! I think it might also be worth mentioning that beforehand, whenever I put the computer in sleep mode, it wouldn't resume and wake up until I had installed v35, so part of my problem's been fixed.

My laptop originally came with a Windows 8.1 installation, and has always had issues with Windows store apps not working. Usually the apps appear, then close. I have an iPhone, which videos and photos can only be synced from the Photos app (if iTunes is installed, which it is), but the Photos app will not run long enough to perform any operation. On my desktop however, there is no issue with this, as the apps seem to work fine, every single installed app runs there, just my laptop that won't run them. I've done an extensive search of google, and tried many powershell and command prompt "fixes," but to no avail. When I am on vacation, or visiting someone in town, I cannot take photos off my iPhone to make room for more, which is actually quite frustrating. It doesn't really matter where the photos end up being stored, as I have a homegroup for my computers, and I have numerous external drives for transfers. I would try to remote control my desktop, but that breaks some things on my desktop (hibernation no longer works, sleep lasts for 60 seconds max, etc) and it does seem a bit extraneous, just to save some photos, and sometimes I do not have any means of accessing a network while on vacation, so that would be useless most of the time anyways. I'd like to know a fix, seeing as I cannot find one. Thanks in advance!

My company purchased the ThinkPad Helix for business use.  Nearly 100% of my use of the computer is proxy'ing into a remote server.  I have been using Microsoft .rdp for years on both desktops and laptops. Problem is, this is very,very difficult with the Helix.  When I log into my office server, the desktop icons and everything else is very small !!!  So hard to see, hurts my eyes.  As it is, the computer is useless for me. Here is what I have done to try to remedy this: If you right click on the title bar, there is an option for "Zoom".  But if I make it bigger, say 150% so I can see it, it just zooms.  The resolution decays, and you can't see the whole desktop of the rdp screen.  So you have to use the vertical and horizontal scrool bars to work.  This is not a tenable solution.You can "edit" the settings for the rdp by right clicking on the icon.  Then you go to the tab "display" and this only allows you to change the size of the remote disktop.  You can;t make it bigger. There are other remote desktop apps, and I would purchase them if I has some confidence they would work. Does anyone know of a solution?  Sadly, this is otherwise an excellent computer.

So out of the blue, suddenly some applications are unable to connect to the internet, while others still can connect?!
Stuff like dropbox, precision x, geforce experience, rainmeter, LCD host, sandboxie, etc doesn't work and will give me errors when they try to access the internet..
But stuff like TS3, steam, utorrent, chrome, hamachi, teamviewer, etc etc is able to connect to the internet..
Steam for example, it works and i can connect and load up friends, but when trying to access webinfo i just get this:

Error Code: -130
Failed to load web page (unknown error).

Reboot (router/modem AND PC) didn't work, disabled all adapters except my lan and still no go, uninstalled all stuff that might could hook into the network adapter.. only having windows defender as AV (and it's even turned off atm), no firewall or other program that could block it..
I have also tried resetting winsocket and did "netsh int ip reset reset.log hit" but no go..
Wtf could this be...?!
Edit: Well it seems that a VPN program changed my lan/proxy settings in IE, even tho i uninstalled it.. (FU HOTSPOTSHIELD ).. Once i changed that, everything was good again.. (Makes me wonder why so many programs still rely on IE settings to connect..)

Not sure if I'm using the right term but while either of these programs are checking for updates, cursor focus is contanstly being pulled to either the app itself or the numerous background processes it seems to be opening. Seems minor but this means you literally can't multitask or do anything requiring typing while checking for updates, because your cursor is constantly being moved out of whatever you're trying to do.  This is especially a problem because of how long the scans take to run.Few addl questions: - Are these two apps doing the same thing, and if so, why are there two of them?  Just noticed the 'System Update' one today, Vantage I have had since purchase - Why are there numerous 'Setup' popups being generated in the background while these programs scan? (see photo attached). If you Alt-Tab during the process, you can see many exe / software shell things opening and closing (is this what pulls focus away?).  - Is there anyway to fix these programs so they run truly in the background?  Can't imagine it's a big ask to clean these up a bit. Thanks!

so i recently got a new 8gb ram stick which is fully compatible with my laptop ( i think) the Ram is: Kingston 8GB DDR3L PC3L-12800 1600MHz 1.35V Non-ECC CLL1 Laptop Memory. my laptop is a G50-70 with 4 ram. so i'd have a total of 12Gb of ram. but when i added the ram and played a game (fornite) it started to flicker. A black line going down and repeating. Now its pretty unplayable, i've tried to run the memory error detecting control panel thing; did not work. i started the laptop with both ram sticks alone both worked (agian only the new 8gb ram stick did the flickering) now i have a 14 day left warrenty to return the ram stick. do you think there is a solution or just return it and somone can recommend me a FULLY compatible ram stick. mabye try slowing the mhz of the ram as i think the flickering is the refresh rate of the laptop screen trying to keep up with the ram speed.PLEASE HELP (when ever i try screenshotting it. it doesn't appear, which means its the monitor not the game)

Sorry ahead of time if this is the improper forum for this - I couldn't see any others here that would fit the issue.
First off, basic information:
I'm running Windows 10 64 bit on a 256gig SSD with 16 gigs of ram, a GTX 970, and an i5 3570k, very gently overclocked (although I've reverted it to "normal" in my efforts to fix this issue).
This issue has persisted through two reinstalls of Windows 10 and it's absolutely infuriating.
Basically, a few different programs are crashing and throwing out errors in my Windows Event Logs with the faulting module as something related with qt5. It's different between apps, I believe, but they're generally preceded by qt5. Off the top of my head, one is QT5core.dll, I'll have to check again for the others, if it is important.
Before my first reinstall, I ran just about every virus scan known to man alongside three different rootkit detectors with, predictably, no results.
The apps that it has affected so far - EAC (EasyAntiCheat) - I'm completely unable to start EasyAntiCheat, so any game that uses it is out of the question. This includes Hurtworld, Rust, among others.
The HTC Vive installer crashes before it starts. Also pointing to a QT5core.dll fault.
ReVive, an overlay to add Oculus games to Steam VR, crashes before starting and fails to do what it needs to do. This one points to a different QT5 dll, but I can't remember it off of the top of my head.
Edit: Add Stellarium to the list. I'm fairly certain this is related to QT, ... Read more

I finally migrated to W10pro today(09.04.16) from 7 just to get this free upgrade offer and I'm trying to get rid of some of the default apps. I did read tutorial on it on here, but I think it's not entirely relevant anymore, I'm guessing it's after applying latest update from MS.
When I'm trying to uninstall app from power shell, I do have this message

What I'm doing wrong here? Isn't that the way to do it?

Hello and Welcome to TSF!!!

Since it is fresh installation of operating system, you did not install well OS I am afraid...
That is why the best solution would be to do the installation again...

Make sure Windows XP CD is good, not scratched...
Maybe you CD-ROM is not in good state...

Keep us posted...

Our Sr. Network Engineer bought a new Win 8.1 Pro computer and added it to the domain. Everything is working fine except for when he goes to run some of the network monitoring software we have, omnivista in particular. He has the same setup at his home and everything works fine. We aren't sure what is causing this issue and searching the internet has led no where...

We use Java 7.17 because one of the programs we use doesn't work with the latest version. The rest of IT is on Win 7 Pro and none of us are having the issue. Any ideas whats causing/could be causing this?
