Q: Auto approval of windows 7 asset to windows 10 by using windows 10 dashboard

Hi Guys,<o:p></o:p>
Good Evening !!<o:p></o:p>
Here is the thing on which I need ideas and help from you guys.<o:p></o:p>
Presently we are in that phase where we are migrating all the machines from Windows 7 to Windows 10.<o:p></o:p>
For this we are using windows 10 dashboard to approve the assets which are ready to migrate from 7 to 10 and presently we are doing it manually by going to dashboard
site and then we have few options to enter the asset tag and then edit it and check the approved option and update so that the asset will be ready for the migration.<o:p></o:p>
And now comes my requirement.<o:p></o:p>
I want to automate this process using power-shell script every time when we get some request to approve one asset i want to write a script so that it will reduce the
manual intervention and also reduce the time to approve the assets.

<o:p style="">I already wrote two line script like example by using invoke-webrequest
command we can access the dashboard. from their on wards i am unable to move further like how to define new objects and all. </o:p>
Please do help me in this how to proceed or any ideas how to do this to approach our requirement.<o:p></o:p>
Thanks in Advance :) <o:p></o:p>

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.)


Hello All,

I run a windows 10 PC and I am having a challenge finding how to increase the amount of time you have when you make a change to your Monitors.

Right now it gives me 14 seconds or it reverts the changes, is there a way to extend this to 1 Minute or 2 minutes?

We are happy to announce the new Monetize -> In-app ads section in Windows Dev Center. This is your one stop shop to create and manage the ad mediation settings of your UWP and Windows 8.x ad units.

You can find the In-app ads section under the Monetize section in the left navigation. On choosing this option, you can view your in-app ads dashboard that lists all your ad units, along with additional details such as application name, ad unit type, mediation settings, etc.

On clicking the ?Create ad unit? button, you will be taken to a new page where you can specify the ad unit details, configure the ad mediation settings for the ad unit and submit. The ad unit will then appear on your in-app ads dashboard.

Do note that you no longer need to start a submission to be able to create an ad unit ? simply reserve your app name and you will be able to create an ad unit for it.

If you wish to change the mediation settings of an existing ad unit, simply click on the ad unit, change the settings and save.

For more information on these new experiences, please refer to this article.

We hope you enjoy the new experience! Please send your feedback to [email protected]

Microsoft gave its privacy policy and service agreement a facelift Thursday, and offered users a new central clearinghouse to manage privacy settings for all the data the company keeps about them.

The newly-minted privacy dashboard (included in the Security and Privacy section of Microsoft?s account administration page) gives users links to control data stored for personalizing their experience on Bing, what apps and services use their information, whether Microsoft personalizes ads for them and whether the company can market to them via email. It?s part of a move by the company to unify and simplify most of its service agreements and privacy policies for various products under one document.

For years I could access my GoFlex Seagate Serve off of the Seagate share dashboard online and now I can not.  I am wondering if Microsoft updates has cut off this ability.  The server works fine off of the desktop computers in the office and
we have no issues seeing the drive.  It is just no dashboard access off of the Seagate share website.

Hello, How can i downgrade a laptop that came pre-installed with Windows 7?  It was automatically upgraded to Windows 10 and runs too slowly.  Microsoft will not let me download image, instead they direct me to Lenovo.  I called the Lenovo number listed in one of the posts on here, but after giving the rep my serial number, they told me to call Thinkpad support.  I thought I would check here before continuing to run around.  Thanks

We have a windows update group policy applied to various users machines in our domain. The policy is to automatically restart / update users machines if they are logged off. This does not appear to be working in any case.

I have compared the registry settings on machines to what they should be if the policy applied and they are correct:


AUOptions - 4
NoAutoRebootedWithLoggedOnUsers - 1
ScheduledInstallDay - 0
ScheduledInstallTime- 1

This would imply the install / restart should be happening automatically at 1am if no user is logged on.

When users come in in the morning and log in they immediately get a "Restart your machine to finish installing updates" dialogue and it is driving us insane!

Can anyone please advise ?

I have a Sitefinity 7.0 project I am developing that has been working fine until a few weeks ago. After a round of Windows updates I would get a 500 error everytime I tried to access the Dashboard or any other backend page. The login worked, but the desired
page always failed, whether running in VS2013 or published and run from IIS 7. The production site hosted on WS2008R2 remained trouble free, but the issues affects development on my Windows 8.1 box.

I confirmed the error was caused by Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 and 4.5.2 on Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 x64-based Systems (KB3098779). Removing the update resolved the issue. Once a week, every week since, the update is
reinstalled automatically without me being able to stop it. The error reappears every time this update is automatically reinstalled.

Hi Guys,

Windows 7 auto-updated last night, and left me with a big mess today.

A lot of windows services are not responding at all, will not open, some freeze ect...

It all started with windows getting stuck at the blue screen, something along the lines of preparing windows ect, do not shut down. It kept looping on restart.

I got it to finally get to windows but..

Windows Update (does not open at all)
System Restore Opens *but* I apparently do not have any restore points
Safe Mode with Network boots to a black screen (safe mode in all 4 corners though)
Microsoft excel does not open
Cannot uninstall Microsoft starter 2010

I deleted all files under c>windows>softwaredistribution>download

I downloaded the service pack 1 manually from Microsoft website, the .exe file will not run at all.

So there it is, I can browse the internet but most windows services do not run.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Everyone
I do a lot of work on multiple picture choosing on windows 7 with 3x 27" screens.
When I open multiple Windows Photo Viewer iterations, e.g. 7 or more up to 14 with different pics and try to change the order of them left or right for a storyboard, ALL but the one I'm moving is Minimized to the title bar. ANY other app open is also
minimized. This action is capricious/arbitrary and doesn't happen every time.
Regardless, It drives me nuts. Is the anyway to defeat this crazy wizard that does this?
Many thanks to anyone who can assist. It will keep me out of the Looney Bin.

Hi guys,

i bought a tower that had windows 8 on it originally
i installed 7 pro to keep everything uniform...for the users mostly

i bought a win 7 pro license but when i went to activate it says windows is activated
with the ask for genuine microsoft software logo software on the right

there is no option to change the key...
i dont remember activating during install and assumed i would get the 3 days before the nag screen
i used a dell windows 7 pro 64 bit install disk...how is this possible?

any ideas?
i suppose i can change the key via other means...but is it necessary as i could use the license on another box...

what would you do?

A:Does windows 7 auto activate if windows 8 original?

There's your problem, you used a Dell disc. Dell, and some other OEM's, embed the keys into the installation disc. You shouldn't use a Dell disc except on the Dell computers its designed for. Change the key and do a proper activation to keep your client legal.

Windows 7 prof started installing updates before shutdown. When computer turned on again, it would not boot and the mouse was not to be found. Error message said could not repair the problem and showed option of system restore. Since there was no mouse working I had no cursor and could not choose system restore as a result. After two or three tries, I did control alt delete during startup and windows loaded normally. I think it finished configuring updates then acted normally. Afraid now to turn it off. Any ideas?

I don't want Windows 10, and have tried to disable/hide all updates that would install it to my computer. I have been at least partially successful; I no longer see the blue rectangular nag screen promoting Win 10.

Today, I was horrified to discover a hidden, 6 gig $Windows.~BT file folder on my C:\ drive, last modified today. I assume that this is for Win 10, and that Microsoft is using my bandwidth to railroad this OS into my computer despite my best efforts to say no.

I found a SuperUser thread indicating that I can delete this directory by: a) Press Windows key + R
b) Type: %windir%\system32\cleanmgr.exe
c) Hit Enter on your keyboard
I haven't tried this, don't know if it works, and am afraid that I'll make the 6 gig download start all over again.
Is there a way to get rid of these files once and for all, and insure that they never come back again?
Thank you in advance for your feedback!

I've searched the web endlessly, and there are lots of suggestions, but nothing works. I have disabled every type of auto run / auto play I can find, but if Windows Media Player is open and I insert a flash drive, CD, or DVD, whatever I'm playing is interrupted by what was inserted even if it's not media. Just a plain, blank flash drive does this.

Hello everyone i'm new to this site

After some research I found a thread from mosaic1 who helped someone with the same problem. However I tried the steps in that post and it has not worked.

I got a copy of userinit.exe and copied it to system32 (there was already a userinit.exe present anyway but I thought it might be infected). I also did copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe as suggested on the microsoft website but still no luck.

For the past few months I've been having problems with my computer, such as slowness, stalling, and every now and then a new kind of malware would pop-up. It started with Anti-virus 2009 pro, and a few recent ones were System Security, Braviax.exe, and Internet Antivirus Pro. I had been successful in getting rid of them with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Spybot. But I guess I only removed them partially because after I got rid of Internet Antivirus Pro, my computer (Windows XP) started having an auto log-off issue. As soon as I select an account from the start-up page to log in to, it shows the desktop's wallpaper for a few seconds before automatically logging off. I am writing this post through my laptop which is fortunately working fine. Is there anyway to resolve this problem?

Hello all, hopefully someone on here can solve a very frustrating problem.

A laptop of mine contracted a virus, and installed a fake antivirus program. I was able to uninstall the fake antivirus, but now I have another problem.

Every time I turn on / restart the laptop, I get the message "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute, please save your work now".

The laptop then restarts, ad infinitum.

Now, having done a quick google search, I see lots of reccommendations involving either going into Safe Mode or using the Advanced Boot Options.

Problem is, I can't get the F8 menu screen to come up on the problem laptop.

I have another laptop of the exact same model - this one is uninfected and I can get the F8 menu up just fine, so it's nothing to do with me mis-timing pushing the button.

I have tried going into Safe Mode via the Boot options in msconfig, but alas I get the same error message in Safe Mode, too, and again my computer is forced to restart.

It's so frustrating! I can't run an antivirus because my computer keeps restarting before it can get to work.

Any help would be gratefuly welcomed.

Thanks in advance!

Now, it seems like this thread has been many places many times. But my question has never been answered. I use the windows auto snap
a lot and it is very useful to me and I would like to keep it (when I drag a window to the top and it maximizes, I want to keep this feature). However, a lot of the time I am playing games, and when I alt + tab out of those games to a previous window,
any window I have open that is snapped to the top left corner (no other corners do this), it will automatically maximize itself. It will auto maximize sometimes when I click on it after not having it open as my main window for a while. I would like to know
if there is a solution to this issue and hopefully there is. Thank you for your time!

Dear all,
I met an annoying thing today.
Our developers developed an application, the size of app window cannot be changed.
We have some small screen laptops, the screen is only 10.1", the window height is higher than the screen height.
There're 2 situations when this app works on these laptops:
When I installed Windows XP on the laptop, the screen can be scrolled. So when I move the mouse pointer to the bottom, the screen also move to the bottom, I can see the entire window.
When I installed Windows 7 on the laptop, the screen is fixed, and the app window cannot be displayed totally. If I ask the developers to modify the app, it's a real big job.

Now my question is: whether there's a function or method to enable screen auto-scroll? I mean if I start the app and move mouse pointer to the bottom, the screen also move down to the bottom so that I can see the whole window.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi guys

I am a bit troubled with the Windows XP's auto printer scanning enhancement. Whenever a printer attached to a Windows XP computer is shared in the network, most of the other Windows XP users within the network can access the shared printer without additing it manually (because Windows XP scans(?) the entire network for a new shared printer) which ends up with 20-25 auto printers within the "Printers and Faxes" window where a normal user faces troubles to choose right printer!!!

Please tell me how I can turn off this "enhancement" from Microsoft.

Thanks in advance.
