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.)

Metro app weather says it can't run if uac is off. Don't know why Win 8 started giving that message, although I did have uac control off. Is there a fix other than having uac on.

A:Metro app weather

Most metro apps will not work with UAC turned off. There is no fix, other than turning UAC on. The reason is that Metro uses UAC's virtualization features (among other things) and without it, they just can't function.

Hello everyone. I have an annoying and weird problem with just the MSN weather metro under Win 8.1 Enterprise. It has been working fine since a few weeks ago, then all of a sudden, whenever I try to open it, it keeps showing the spinning circle right after the splash screen and my city with the current weather just never appears anymore.

Weird thing is that ALL the other metro apps work just fine including the store app and even the LIVE tiles work too, EVEN with the weather app but that's all that works for the latter.

Now I have tried the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter but didn't help.

Also I had another idea and it seemed to resolve the issue at first but only for a one time launch though.... :-(
That is I uninstalled the msn weather metro app, after that I went into the app store and installed it again. Then opened it and voila it worked and it remembered my city so it didn't delete everything it seems after uninstalling. Now whenever I close the weather app again and reopen it, it just has the same problem. Won't get pass the spinning circle again after the splash screen. Whenever I uninstall and reinstall it once more, it works again the first time I open it after the install but any subsequent launches of this particular metro app fails again.

I don't know how to solve this. It can't be a big problem as all else works just fine. Perhaps someone has run into the exact same phenomenon once and knows the solution. Hopefully so :-) I just like the weather a... Read more

I have The Weather app permissions set to allow it to display the weather on the lock screen. This has been working fine for some time -- up until now.

Now it only shows alerts, not the temperature. Any idea how to fix this?

A:Windows Weather and Lock Screen -- Weather not showing

To get the weather to show on the lock screen TWO things are needed:

Give the Weather app permision to access the lock screen.Tell the lock screen what you want to see.
I think number 2 is set up by default and I think I set up number 1 myself. This was enough to make it work.

Something is terribly wrong with the MSN Weather app in Windows 8.1.  Throughout the afternoon until the evening, the app always says "Cloudy, 46 degrees", even though it's always sunny and 63 degrees out.  Even throughout the night,
the app won't update and it STILL says "Cloudy, 46 degrees"!  It seems the Weather app is broken!  Has the same thing happened to you?  If so, when will the app be fixed? :(

This just started happening recently, but when I open my laptop past about 90 degrees, the screen darkens to the point where it's almost pitch black. I thought that the wires connecting the screen were broken, but when I started to close it, the screen returned back to normal. I can still see a bit when it's past 90 degrees, but only when I lean in really close and look at it from an angle.

Is there anyway to fix this? Um, it started happening when I once opened it up from sleeping. Is the wire getting crushed or something? If it helps, my laptop has windows vista and is a toshiba satellite M300 according to the label I just read. Any help greatly appreciated

Hi and welcome to TSG.

I am not 100% certain but it sounds like the backlight / inverter is playing up, this could be due to a dodgy connection.

In most laptops that inverter board can be replaced fairly easily, you could probably do it yourself. However, I am not sure if that is the case with the backlight aswell.

How old is the laptop, is it still under warranty at all?

Whenever I use the pen while the screen is flipped back over 180 degrees (whether in tent mode, tablet mode, whatever) the touchscreen becomes unresponsive. The pen works just fine but the screen wil eventually stop responding to touch. THe only fix I found is flipping the screen to laptop mode and back. This isn't app specific either. I mostly use the pen with Artrage and Photoshop, but I just tested on Edge and Mail, and the touchscreen became unresponsive.  I can use the pen in laptop mode without it interferring with touch. Something tells me there's a software issue.  Are there any fixes to this? It's really annoying.  In addition, the pen input can be very buggy at times, it wants to stick to teh top of the screen and I often end up moving the window while drawing.  I've calibrated the pen a few times, and I use both the built in pen as well as the thinkpad pen pro one (the thicker one you can be separately).

To change the way your computer displays numbers
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
On the Numbers tab, specify any changes you want to make.
Among items you can change are the decimal symbol and list separator, the format used for negative numbers and leading zeros, and the measurement system (U.S. or metric).

To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.

Just starting to use Windows 8, on a laptop with no touch screen. So far, although it is pretty, I don't see the new Metro "modern" start menu as being very useful, and will likely install one of the third party apps to bring back the traditional Start Menu. (Microsoft really should have included that as an option within Windows, not needing a third party app. I hope they realize that, and add it in an update.However, trying to figure out if the new Metro screen could be useful, once one gets used to it. It looks like every time one installs an app, an icon (or "Live Tile") is added for it in the Metro screen, or multiple icons. If one has a lot of programs installed, that could mean a lot of scrolling through a mess of icons, to find the app you want to start. (Even with a touch screen, which makes the side to side scrolling easier, that could be a hassle.)If, however, one could organize the icons ("Tiles") into folders on the Metro screen, to organize the programs by type, etc. (good to be able to assign an icon for each folder, so that one can distinguish them by more than text), then it could be more useful, organized, not require so much scrolling, etc. (Hell, even the limited IOS allows putting apps together in folders, although not subfolders (unless jailbroken,) Well, I would hope that app folders in Win 8 would not limit the number of apps in each folder, and would allow subfolders.) With such a folder option, it might take a while, but ... Read more

Hi All - I've done a ton of internet research on this and haven't found my problem specifically described - although some situations very close...

Out of the blue, the metro screen for my 2 accounts (MS live accounts) is essentially locked up. Clicking on apps and tiles doesn't do anything. Keyboard works to some degree and I can do a win+R to get into desktop and be somewhat functional although after a period of time, clicking on programs and icons in desktop freezes up as well. The lock screen always works fine and I can CTRL+ALT+DEL into lock screen all the time.

Was able to boot into safe mode and everything works as normal in safe mode w/o networking. I created a local account and then booted back normally and that local account seems to work fine also. Tried the OLE registry manipulations, etc. that were suggested by Mr Google and that didn't help.

Question is, if this is related to using MS online live accounts, why? And how can I ensure this doesn't come back if I use local accounts only? Could this be created all by some app I used - have downloaded the "live cam" app and that's really the only one that was common between the two accounts. Installed some software that needed .net 3.5 also. Could that be it? Video card drivers maybe for my 9500GT?

Interested in some thoughts if anyone has ideas.

Thanks,

As usual, to be sure the computer use the vpn network to make dns reolution etc... the virtual network card created by juniper is using metric 1 to have the top priority.
That's working well since 1 or 2 years.
For an unknown reason When they connect to the vpn some computers keep the internet gateway instead of using the one provided by juniper vpn...
The solution we've found is to edit the juniper metric from 1 to 2 and after ipconfig /flushdns the route table is using the vpn gateway..the pb is, juniper create an virtual card each connections, so it is deleted when the users disconnect his vpn session.
I don't know why but the computers seems not update the route table when connecting to vpn..

PC show takes DNS server setting from Vlan200 with metric 5 but instead, he using the DNS server from Vlan37 with metric 22.
Maybe someone know how can I fix this issue?
On Windows 10 don't have this problem.

Hi:
I've started a virtual machine which has two nics with qemu-kvm on server 192.168.6.2, one nic with qemu-kvm param "-redir tcp:40037::3389" is in "user" mode which IP is 10.0.2.15, so if I connect to 192.168.6.2:40037, it will map to
10.0.2.15:3389, the other is in bridge mode which IP is 192.168.6.100, my pc is 192.168.6.220, In the vm, "route print" shows two default gateway as below:
0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      192.168.6.1    192.168.6.100    5
0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      10.0.2.2          10.2.2.15    5
When I use my pc connect to 192.168.6.2:40037, always cat not connect, so I change the metric value to 100 of 10.0.2.2, it works well.I am confusing. My question is:
I capture packet on nic 10.0.2.15, when connect, the src IP  is 192.168.6.220, src mac is the mac of 10.0.2.2, all these are right, but when reply, why it still select default gateway of 10.0.2.2? I mean the dst is 192.168.6.220 and there is a route
item like:
192.168.6.0    255.255.255.0            on-link     192.168.6.100    261
why doesn't it choose this one?
Or it doesn't find routing table at all when reply, just according to the receive interface? But if really this, why doesn't it work when metric value are the same? 
Or it doesn't find rou... Read more
