Where can I find the Windows 10 Compatibility tool?

Q: Where can I find the Windows 10 Compatibility tool?

I've looked all over and can't find it. I'm ready to upgrade if I can handle any issues.

Preferred Solution: Where can I find the Windows 10 Compatibility tool?

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, I am trying to create a bootable usb flash drive with win 7 iso image. I downloaded the image,unzipped it and loaded it to a formatted (ntfs) usb drive.At step 3 there is a default message in the drop down window 'no compatible usb devices detected'.I am doing all this on my desktop with xp sp3 and wonder if the issue could be because of that as I used other ports with the same results.

Try formatting the USB to FAT32 first. I recommend the slow format.

Note: Everything on the USB will be erased. So if you need it, copy it off first.

Hi there,

Yes it seems to be not available anymore, why don't you go to the manufacturer's site of the hardware to find if it is compatible, usually it's drivers you need to be concerned with to. Best if you listed what hardware.

Hello everyone,

I've been having a terrible time trying to diagnose and fix corrupted system files. I have recently updated to windows 10 during the free upgrade process. I was running Windows 7 Pro before I updated.

I have tried sfc /scannow command multiple times, in safe mode and in normal operation.

Every time I get this message:

"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
supported in offline servicing scenarios."

So researching online, I found that using the DISM tool will fix this issue.

However every time I run the command, I get this:

"Error: 0x800f081f

The source files could not be found.
Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see Configure a Windows Repair Source.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log"

I've even tried mounting the windows 10 iso that I downloaded from the media creation tool and running it again, however I still get the same message to no avail. I've seen other forums with users saying to use the original windows 10 iso and not to use the iso created by the media creation tool. However I can't seem to find this file and am not sure it would work anyways.

A:I can't find system information tool in windows 8.1 proffesional , I look in search but whithout results

I type in search box system information but it gives me only the system tool and information about system information only.

Confirmed.   I suspect that the option to enable Administrator tools to show up in a search needs to be re-allowed but I can't find it any more.  It always was somewhat obscure... 

Wow.  Is this really WAD?  Win-W  Admin tools  only opens Administrative Tools in FE and System Information (msinfo32.exe) can be used from there.
Even stranger,  msinfo32  is only found using Everywhere?  Not in Files?  And I had to type that much, nothing less?
I can't remember if it was ever in Win-X but it isn't now.

FWIW I can still find  msinfo32.exe  via Run...  so I haven't missed this so far.  <eg>

I am running Windows 7 ultimate SP1 (64 bit) registered licensed and confirmed as being eligible for a windows 10 free upgrade and have had the pop up inviting me to do so before now but was not ready at the time to go any further. I have automatic updates on and always apply all updates so am pretty sure I must be up to date with W7.

I want to check Windows 10 compatibility before upgrading. Searches have suggested I use the 'Get windows 10 app' on the taskbar/system traybut it does not appear. I have tried downloading this app (GW10Appdiagnostic.diagcab) but when it runs it says "The Get Windows 10 App is not available for this version on Windows"

I don't understand why it would not be available and then again how do I check compatibility without it?

Any help appreciated. Thank You

A:Cannot find IE Repair tool

Hi and welcome to TSF.

Here's a shortcut describing what you need:


If you want us to have a peek at your problem, which may be spyware-related, do this:

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Hi after i start PC i see WmiPrvSE.exe consume 48% of CPU time, after about 10min it calm down i checked my pc with hijackthis and sfc and lspfix but found nothing bad i know WmiPrvSE.exe runs for many tools but is there a chance to find what tool/software/driver exactly execute WmiPrvSE.exe? I could disable services one by one at registered boot but there are a lot of them so fastest way could be read which services "want" WmiPrvSE.exe after PC reboot.

A:How to find which software/tool execute WmiPrvSE.exe?

You might be able to fix this issue by restarting the ?Windows Management Instrumentation? service. Click Start, type Services in the search box, hit Enter. Under Services (Local), scroll down until you find the ?Windows Management Instrumentation? service. Click to highlight and select Restart.

It's also possible that a virus or malware got onto your machine and is disguising itself as WmiPrvSE.exe. Have you run a full scan with your anti-virus of choice? You could also use the free Malwarebytes as a second opinion scanner.


Microsoft also has a free tool called Process Explorer. (It's kinda like Task Manager on steroids.) It offers a much greater analysis of what process is running and what's using it. You don't even have to install it. You can run it directly from the live link at Run Process Explorer now from Live.Sysinternals.com.

Being a Mozilla Firefox convert, the only times that I use IE 6.0 is when I have to use a website that does not work with Firefox 1.0PR, or with Firefox in general. The prime example of this, and the reason I'm having to write this plea for help, is Windows Update (www.windowsupdate.com).

Whenever I check for updates, it scans and lists the needed updates all right, but when the download dialog appears, nothing happens. Once, I had it work for almost 7 hours overnight while I slept and by the morning, nothing had download. It was still saying "Preparing to download." Perhaps IE is punishing me for switching? LOL Just kidding, although I wouldn't put it past Microsoft to do that to people who set a competitor's browser as their default.

So, now I get the list of updates that I need and download them from the Microsoft Download Center (www.microsoft.com/downloads). However, I would like to get the Critical Update Notification tool, but all the places that I've visited that talk about the Critical Update Notification tool say that it is only available off of Windows Update. Microsoft Downloads does not offer the CUN at all, at least not to any of my knowledge.

Can anyone help me?

Install windows 10 and confirm activation as suggested in forums. Downloaded Windows Media Creation Tool to create fresh reinstall. Ran it to create 64 bit ISO. Now using the ISO to reinstall windows 10. At 30% restore, it failed. I tried various recovery. Even did chkdsk on drive c with /r and also with /f. Same problem again - failure at about 30% restore.

Reading in forums, I discover Refresh Windows Tool(exe). Downloaded and ran it (tool) to download Windows 10.
What I dislike. No Pause or ability to use a download manager. When this download of about 3gb is done, where is it saved? How to use? Yea, automatic for I still have prior install files (programs, data folders,etc) which means nothing was done. Did restart hoping for a fresh reinstall - no changes. Thus I am posting in this forum with paragraph 1 (media tool) and Refresh tool (paragraph 2).

Went into BIOS startup and told it to use DVD (boot order priority), but instead window normal login was done and given. Thus, use window recovery within to execute the ISO.

A couple days ago, I (foolishly) left Comodo on Game Mode. While listening to music from my PC in another room, I noticed an abrupt stop and ran in to find the Windows Antivirus 2012 invasion. I (thought) that I successfully removed this virus using your very helpful guide and all seemed well because it was BSOD'ing my system in normal mode and I now run fine. But now in Google, I am redirected by moon search to some random sites. It is also slowing my browser down. I have tried to use the Kaspersky TDSS Killer tool to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I hope to not have to reformat. I ran gmer and attempted to attach the file for viewing but it was listed as being too large (gulp).

Hi there, I upgraded to office 2002 from office 2000. I use outlook 2002 now. When I try to search through all the email messages in my inbox for a word that I know is in a bunch of the emails, outlook doesn't find any. I used to have outlook 2000 do a search and find them with no problem.

I did notice if I search through emails that are saved locally on the computer suchas my archived inbox, drafts ect. it finds the emails no problem. I am retrieving me emails off a windows 2000 advanced server.

So it appears that all the emails coming from the server are the ones outlook 2002 can't find. I tried a couple things: I took out the find tool from the tools menu and then put it back. I reinstalled outlook 2002. But it didn't help.
Hopfully I am not the only one with this problem. I hope it is fixable and not just a glitch on microsofts side. Thank you

Yesterday my Critical Updates said MS Malicious Software Removal Tool was available for download..so I got it and installed it I want to give it a try, but I can't find it! There are only two references to it on my computer (I searched for it by name and by Critical Update number). One is in the C: Windows>Downloaded Software Distribution> Install folder, it says that's a CAB file, it is an exe -? Is that it? (and if it is, why is it squirreled away where no one would ever find it?) The other is in the PF folder. The MS site says "it can be downloaded, installed and run manually from your computer." Except I can't find it. It's available to run online at MS, but I downloaded and installed it, so it's not that, is it? Where is the one I downloaded and how do I run it?
Also - the site says this:
The first time that you download and run the tool by using Windows Update or Automatic Updates, you must accept a specific end user license agreement (EULA). The EULA is displayed when you log on as a member of the Administrators group and then access Automatic Updates or the Windows Update site.
But nothing like that popped up after it installed.

I was looking for software to monitor and control the fans in my X205. I have an overheating problem when gaming. The vents are clear, and I have opened the case and cleaned it out. The vents are not blocked. This problem occurred recently. I assumed it was a problem with XP getting corrupted, so I re-installed XP Pro. This did not help. The fan itself works, as I ran it on 5 volts when I opened the case. No problems. It justy won't come on when the GPU gets hot (75 Celcius).

A notebook forum referrred me to this site, and said I should search for a utility called "Cooling Performance Diagnostic Tool", but I can't find anything.

Does anyone know where I can download this utility? I need to monitor and control these fans. I have re-installed the Toshiba system utilities and drivers from the Toshiba site, but the fan does not appear to be controlled.

Anyone got any opinions on this one?



A:Directed here to find a cooling performance diagnostic tool for my X205.

As far as I know such tool does not exist.
Maybe someone told you to check settings in Toshiba power saver settings for option ?Cooling method?.

Anyway, I presume you have US notebook model so I must redirect you again. ;)
Check Toshiba US support page under http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp and pick up info about all available tools and utilities.
You can also visit forum there and discuss with people who have US notebook models.
On this page we discuss in most cases about European models and Europe support.

A large number of PC users today use USB drives to install Windows operating system thanks to dirt cheap USB drives and plenty of free tools out there for creating bootable USB drives.

Back in Windows XP and Vista days, most users were not even aware of the fact that it?s possible to install Windows operating system from USB drives. The method became popular with the release of Windows 7 Beta in January 2009. Plenty of free utilities have been released since than with variety of options to help users create bootable USB to install Windows operating system from USB drive.

After the release of Windows 7 RTM in October 2009, Microsoft also released its official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to help users easily make USB drives bootable and then install Windows from the bootable USB drive.
Windows USB/DVD Download Tool
The official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool is one of the largely used tools to prepare bootable USB of Windows operating system. Although it has not received any major updates since its initial release, Microsoft has quietly renamed the program page as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool in the last few months.

As you likely know, a couple of months ago, the official page of Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool used the title Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool but the title of the page is now Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. The content on the page even refers to the software as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. Going by last edited information on CodePlex, it looks like... Read more

I recently had issues with my PSU and rather than play guesswork on whether its still functional, I rather just replace it.

My motherboard is a m3n78-pro. Its a bit dated but I'd like for this pc to last another 6 months before I build an entirely new rig. If I read the manual correctly, it requires ATX 12V V2.0.

The PSU I'd like to change to (since it just has to last another 6 months) this 900 w PSU. Would the m3n78-pro be compatible with this PSU? One concern I had was that the m3n78-pro requires a 4 pin ATX +12v connector. If I read the PSU's specifications correctly it has one 12V 8-pin (4 + 4) CPU power connector. Is that 8-pin two separate power connector, ie do I just use 1 of the connectors to fit into the 4 pin ATX +12v connector?

Please excuse my noobishness but what exactly does the v2.92 Motherboard specification entail? I tried to google it, but got less useful information and product results from newegg.

Also I read the wiki on the ATX 12V V2.X standard, but it didn't answer my question - is ATX12V v2.3 backwards compatible with the ATX12V v2.0 standard?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Something like this perhaps:

Convert OST to PST tool is quick and precise way to convert OST file to PST

I've used that software before and it does a decent job at converting, although larger mailboxes it might be slow on.

Hi,I've got ENVY dv7-7255dx laptop from 2012 and I just wanted to know:- will it handle 16GB RAM? How fast RAM can I use- I want to add SSD and make it primary drive (and still keep current one for data) - will 240GB SSD (e.g. GoodRam Iridium Pro 240GB (SSDPR-IRIDPRO-240) be compatible?- can you please send me name or example model of SATA cable compatible with my laptop and mentioned above drive? It looks as it requires round cable - correct?- is drive mounting cage specific or can I buy any? Thank you in advance for any help. Regards,Gregory Malinowski

A:ENVY dv7-7255dx SSD compatibility & RAM compatibility

We do not see that brand of SSD over here in the US but as it is a 2.5 inch wide 7 mm thick SATA SSD it is virtually certain to work.  Yes you can install 16 gigs of RAM.  Service Manual DDR3-1600-MHz dual channel support Supports up to 16384-MB system RAM Memory modules (2, PC3, 12800, 1600-MHz): 8-GB memory module 670034-001 https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-PC3-12800-Notebooks-KTH-X3C-8G/dp/B0089MTP0W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1487796713&sr=8-2&keywords=670034-001 This is DDR3-1600 1.5 volt memory. The Kingston linked above will work.  Here is a link to the SATA cable and caddy for your laptop to use in the second bay: https://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_5&products_id=579&zenid=460053086b75bf15cd31e58e026a8e7d These are specific items and need to be designed for your specific model as there are mounting flanges and attachment  points that have to engage to hold the drive from moving inside the laptop.  I sense you are not in the US. If you have trouble finding any of this let us know but all can likely be found on eBay in Europe. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

appreciate the support,

A:Security Tool Virus (System Tool 2011)

Hello IrishO ,Let's disable the main file manually so you can run some tools. What I want you to look for is in Application Data (If using XP). There will be a folder, with a file in it of the same "name". This will appear random, but it has a pattern. Look for letters and numbers in this order: lower case, upper case, lower case, upper case, lower case, then 5 random numbers. For example:Folder -----> pEeHl02508\pEeHl02508.exe <-----file insideDelete the folder. Now, if you still have no access to the internet, download the following tool to a flash drive from a different computer, then put it on the infected one and run it.This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. IF YOU USE AVG IT MUST BE UNINSTALLED OR THIS WILL NOT RUN.1. Download this file - combofix.exe http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe 2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please.Note:Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.If you have trouble running it the first time, then rename ComboFix.exe to IrishO.exe and try again.Thanks,tea
