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 inadvertantly added my password onto the end of my email  address while trying to sign in to hotmail. Now whenever I  start to sign in,as soon as I type the first letter of my email address, I see a drop down list containing
an "email address" which is my email address AND my password combined. 
how do I clear the drop down list or remove unwanted entries.

To remove an entry highlight it using the Down Arrow (not the mouse) and press
Del on your keyboard.

Hi
I used to enjoy the feature of having a dropdown menu listing my email addresses when signing into Hotmail. I have purchased a new laptop running Windows 10 and the list does not appear. Does anybody know what settings to change to activate the feature?

Hi there,

I'm actually trying to solve a problem my grandfather is having with his windows live hotmail.

He has not made any changes to his computer and for some reason started having trouble signing into windows live hotmail. When he puts in his password he gets this error message: You've tried to sign in too many times with an incorrect e-mail address or password.

He has tried to reset his password but it's not accepting any of his "secret question" answers.

He can't have reset instructions sent to him because the email on file is his hotmail email and he of course can't sign in to that account.

I have sent an email to hotmail support through the HELP website with no response.

If anyone has any suggestion for how we can fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank-you.

Need assistance with this problem. When booting system sometimes I hit F9 to select boot device, when I want to boot from dvd or usb. Before you say I can list boot devices in bios I know this, the problem Is UEFI and Legacy my UEFI system is not secure boot and for whatever reason I have to F9 and manually select usb or dvd legacy, some versions of linux will not boot otherwise.

Anyway my problem is when booting system I hit F9 and this is what it looks like:

Please select boot device:

UEFI boot sources:

Windows boot manager
Linux Mint
Linux mint
Linux Mint
Linux Mint
Ubuntu
Ubuntu
Ubuntu
Ubuntu

Legacy boot sources:
Hard Drive
SATA0
Network controller
Atapi cd/dvd drive
SATA2

Over the course of the last year I have dual booted several version of linux, but it seems that linux mint and ubuntu add entries to my UEFI boot sources list...how do I remove them, the list is getting to long, and currently only windows 7 is installed.

Henry

Hp Pavillion Slimline s5-1114
Bios version 7.16

Ps other than this annoying list the system boots fine right into windows.

When I sign into Windows Live Messenger, the error reporting pops up saying that Windows Live Communications Platform has encountered a problem and needs to close. Every time. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I've done virus scans. Nothing is up. Virus scans with Avira and Kaspersky. Both turning up nothing (and not done at the same time or installed at the same time of course). Any ideas? I'm hearing alot of people have this issue. Windows XP SP3.

A:Windows Live Communications Platform issues Windows Live

How did you uninstall it? I did a little looking around and apparently uninstalling this program is very involved, to the extent of even removing it from the registry. You can see the instructions at this site. I saw the same instructions at two sites, so this looks like the proper procedure.

As the title says I can sign in Hotmail.com but not into Windows Live Messenger.

This is what I get when I try:

Error code: 80048820

Any other use can sign on with no problem.
I tried on other computers with the same result, I can sign in Hotmail.but not into Windows Live Messenger.
It is the same with any OS I try, XP, Vista and 7.

So it cannot be a computer problem. So trying the suggestions offered on the Live Messenger support page for error code: 80048820 is a waste of time.

Has anyone ever encountered this and how did you resolve it?

Thanks in advance,

Hi as of yesterday all of a sudden my spybot picked up a win32fraudpack. warning and found 0.exe - which was identified as trojan, after halting the process and deleting the file, my Windows Live Messenger stopped working, I uninstalled all Windows Live components from my laptop. I then proceeded to do full scan of my system with Kaspersky AV 2010 - found infected files and deleted them. Thereafter I did a registry clean with CC cleaner.

after what I ran the Kaspersky again - came back clean.

Any ideas on why these screen savers are affecting messenger like this?

A:Windows Live Communications Platform has stopped working

Code presumably from the screen saver (saver1.dll) has been injected into the wlcomm process. There appears to be a problem in saver1.dll and that in turn makes the entire process crash.

I'd suggest either finding an updated version of the screen saver software, and in particular the saver1.dll module, or removing it. It's almost certainly a bug in the current version of saver1.dll.

So I've seen this problem all across the internet, but I haven't found a stable solution. I hope someone from here can help me =)

Recently, I've downloaded a couple of screensavers. They all work perfectly fine, but some of them will produce the error in my title. If I preview the screensaver or use the screensaver, then move my mouse to close it, I get a window saying "Windows Live Communications Platform Has Stopped Working" and I get the normal options of closing and sending a report, or just closing the program. My Windows Live Messenger will be signed out, and I will need to sign on again.

Now, like I said, not every single screen saver does that to me. Only certain ones. I downloaded four of them thus far: Inception screensaver from the Inception website; both Dark Knight screensavers from The Dark Knight website, and the Batman Arkham Asylum screensaver. Only the Batman: Arkham Asylum screensaver works perfectly, and does not give me the above error message.

[SOLVED]

The title says most of it.

Recently (within the past couple hours, actually), I've been experiencing this error whenever I attempt to sign into Windows Live Messenger on my main e-mail. What I find odd about it, though, is that I can sign into Windows Live Messenger on any account other than my main one. Example: I'm able to sign into [email protected] and [email protected] but not [email protected] (main account).

This is all the information I'm presented with about the error:

I'm curious; are you using the beta version of Windows live?
If you are using the Beta, try the non-beta one or vice versa.
Sorry I couldn't help much.

You might also want to check to make sure all the latest updates for Windows are installed if you haven't already done that.

Good luck.

A:windows live communications platform stopped working!

Hello Jorge, you joined just before I did The first thing I would do is try a System Restore point from before the problem started if you have one. It is also often suggested to update to the latest version if you have not already. Uninstalling, then reinstalling is also a suggestion.

Here is something else to try. Try deleting the wldlog.dll On x64 Version of Windows 7 this is located in

C:\program files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared

In x86 version it would be

C:\program files\Windows Live\Shared

Save a copy of the dll just in case. Right click on the dll and choose Copy. Now go to desktop and right click an empty area and choose Paste. This will give you a copy to copy back in case of any problems. Now delete the wldlog.dll and Try and launch messenger. If no fix, just copy the wldlog.dll back to it's original location. Let us know how it goes. If you'd like extra assurance, create a System Restore point before you start:

Windows 7 sp1 RTM: Logon, Desktop Sidebar & Windows Live Sign in Assitant Issues (unknown minnor issues-if you face the same issues, please post it here)

Hi Guys , please read the clarification before going to the issues part.

Clarification :
I faced a few issues after installing the Windows 7 sp1 RTM. I am very sure (100%) that these are the Windows 7 sp1 RTM fault (already gone through a few discussions and tested by myself on various ways).

There is no problem with IE9 RTM as these problems were also existing when I used IE8 (Original file came with my Windows 7 pack).

I am certain that my Windows Live Sign In Assitant has no problem at all (tested with latest Windows Live Essential 2011 pack-the one with minor update).

Everything works properly prior/before of the installation of Windows 7 sp1 RTM (of course by reverting back the Windows 7 sp1 RTM to Windows 7 will solve everything).

The point is I want the solution for Windows 7 sp1 RTM. Hope you can help. Kindly view my issues below.

OS Platform: Windows 7 sp1 RTM
Browser: Internet Explorer 9 RTM (Version 9.0.8112.16421)

Issues :
1) Error on Logon: After I log off my computer (pressed the log off button only) and re-logon back, parts of the Windows Live Sign In Assistant were disabled (with an error message box). ~view snapshot 1

Hey Tech Forum,

Im running Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit, and i have attatched below a screen shot of the drop down list. Back on windows xp, it used to keep a history of all your passed folders you were into, almost like a shortcut. Example: C:\program files\pirform\etc.

I cant seem to find a way for Windows 7 to do that for me. Instead of having to go to My Computer>C:\>Program Files> etc.

Any help or suggestions would be helpful

Hi,

As of yesterday, when I sign in to Windows Live Messenger, a few seconds later Messenger will stop responding. This sometimes happens before the sign-in process is complete, and sometimes several seconds after. Shortly after this, Windows Explorer stops (the Task Bar, Start Menu and any window involving file browsing/ file tree such as "Open" dialogue boxes), then any other programs which are open also stop. It's not a screen freeze, since the mouse and basic keyboard commands still work to some extent - Alt-Tab brings up the switch program box, repeating left-shift for StickyKeys makes the StickyKeys sound, though Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing. I searched for a considerable period of time both on these forums and on others but with no luck. Has anyone seen something similar?

It may be completely unrelated, but today for about 10mins any attempt to access BleepingComputer would replace the "bleepingcomputer" section of the URL with "google" bringing up either Google's homepage or an internal Google error since rest of the URL belonging to a BleepingComputer site made no sense stuck after "google.com/". This seemed to fix itself after I tried to get to BleepingComputer via a proxy (though this may have been coincidence). I would post this separately but I'm not really interested in this oddity if it doesn't relate to my first problem.

I have tried running SpyBot and AdAware but they only turned up tracking cookies. I also had an unin... Read more

Win 7 Pro 64-bit here.  I used Remote Desktop Connection to connect to a remote machine, and now I want to remove that machine name from the drop down box.   I tried removing it from the registry as suggested in

A:How to remove cached entries from Remote Desktop connection list?

Ok I guess great ideas still come in after a good nap. Create a new user account with admin rights and the open regedit. then load the ntuser.dat hive from the other account, search for the host name you connected to, and then when you find it, delete it.
Make sure you don't forget to unload the ntuser.dat hive.
OR....
Try from the new administrative account.
Also you can delete the user profile, and recreate it. That  might work after all this hassle.

Windows Live Mail & Windows Live Hotmail Plus

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use at times both the WLM & W Live Hotmail Plus.

If I use the Hotmail I can not place a foto in the body of a message however I can send
one as a attchment.

If I use the WLM I can add a text sig, a foto sig, or both if I use the layout format and
stored pics.

What puzzles me is if wish to set-up a permanent sig I can create the text but when I
attempt to add a foto and select the source the system opens but when I select pics
the file is empty.

My sequence to try to set up a sig is as follows:

Select NEW message, then I go to the tools, options, and signature

Thanks for any info

Hello,

I am having trouble when going to the c:\documents and settings\User folder it keeps coming up asking for me to sign into Windows Live ID. Just wondering if anyone has seen this before?

I cannot find any fixes for this problem.

Thanks

A:Sign in with Windows live ID

Forget it I found the solution

Following recent updates to Windows XP, some users experience popups
asking them to enter their Windows Live ID whenever they browse to
their Documents and Settings/username/ folder, whether or not they have
such an ID or use those services. This can be prevented by deleting the
item "My web sites on MSN" from the NetHood subfolder in this folder,
which apparently causes this by trying to access the network.

This worked for me !

I set up a Windows Live account to get email on Windows 7 Home Premium.
I used my email account for my Windows Live ID.

Now, when I try to Sign In, it says "The Windows Live ID is incorrect."

What should I do? Should I uninstall Windows Live and start over?
Will it let me use my email address again as my ID?

Thanks, cb

A:Windows Live - Cannot Sign In

So you set up a Hotmail/Windows Live e-mail which you then entered into Windows Live Messenger (MSN)? Your WL ID is probably incorrect. Check for spelling/punctuation errors.

I've been having this problem for a few weeks now. After a mandatory update from Microsoft, I've downloaded, installed and tried to use Windows Live Messenger 9.0. But it won't let me sign in. I type my username and the correct password, the icon spins, then - nothing. No error messages, just nothing, the same screen.

I've tried un-installing it, re-installing it at least 5 times. I've tried re-installing and using my old version (Windows Live Messenger 8.1), but it won't let me use that, because it forces me to update to 9.0.

I've already checked a thousand times and it's NOT a problem with a firewall or internet connections or anything of that sort. I've already searched the internet for hours for a solution, but couldn't find anything. I'm using XP and Service Pack 2.

Any help would be much appreciated.

You also won't be able to use Photo Email (i.e. using SkyDrive to avoid sending very large attached files).

I have just got a new computer with Windows Vista and I downloaded Windows Live messenger but when I go to sign in it just says "sigining in..." and nothing happens. eventually I get error code 81000306. I thought this could be to do with the firewall. I am using BitDefender Internet Security 2008 which has its own firewall and in the settings msnmsgr.exe is set to allow so I can't think what it could be.

Hi all, just bought a new PC from Arbico in the UK. It is connected to the internet through my netgear router (wired). I have downloaded and installed Windows Live Essentials, but for some reason cannot sign in to WL Messenger. I get the "connecting" display, which eventually times out - usually to the error code 81000306, but not always that one. If I go to www.hotmail.com and use my windows live ID to sign in then I can access my hotmail, if I use the WL Messenger option in Internet Explorer I cn access my mail too, why is it then that I caano connect to Messenger the other way? I quite like having Messenger running in the background, that way when I am doing something else and I get mail, I see it right away. I am running Windows7 64 bit, IE 64 bit and the latest version of WLM. I have tried a couple of options posted be people in threads elsewhere (ie regedit, and deleting 2 key entries) but nothing seems to work. I have checked my windows firewall (and even turned it off briefly) and the firewall does not appear to be the issue. When my old PC is plugged into the same router I have no problems at all getting Messenger to work (using Windows XP), so that suggests to me that my router is not blocking it eitherRun out of ideas, if anone has any more worth trying please let me know!!(PS tried the fix suggested in these forums @ http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproinstall/thread/20c89fa2-4fbc-4ed8-8737-c7612f591cbe/ but with no success ...
