Q: Cannot encrypt in Windows 10; NTFS? YES. Registry already at "0"

Hello, I'm running windows 10 Home edition. "Ecrypt Contents to Secure Data" is greyed out. I've confirmed I'm using NTFS and the registry key NtfsDisableEncryption is already at 0.
Please don't tell me this isn't available in the Home Edition.
Thanks,

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 have "Kingston" 4GB pen-drive its file system is "FAT32" i try to change its files system to "NTFS" using "formatting" process. When i try to format it in "NTFS" this error show.
"Windows was unable to complete the Format."

So how do i change its file system to "NTFS"?

A:How to change "FAT32" penDrive to "NTFS"? can't format it "NTFS"

On some flash drives used here I simply boot up from a live GParted cd while the drive is plugged in and go as far as repartitioning the drive totally while booted live. From there even with the drive's volume formatted to NTFS Windows may still want to have the format option used as well as the check now option to scan for errors.

You should be able to do that with Partition Wizard or any other live partitioning program without Windows involvement which will tell if the drive is in good working shape. Once the system is restarted following the removal of the factory partition and the new one on unplug the drive before Windows loads up and wait until the desktop is fully loaded to then replug the drive back in for the fresh detection.

If the autoplay option for all media devices is checked off a flashing icon may appear on the taskbar, your av program's prompt to run a scan on the drive should be seen. and the prompt to format it for use should be seen. The message will also insist on checkong for errors with the second option of automatically fixing any seen before the format can take place.

I need to programmatically make some adjustments to the Internet Explorer security settings. Most of these settings I have found but there are a few I have not been able to get a clear exact location for in the registry. I will be using a .BAT file to make

The first setting, "Override automatic cookie handling" needs to be checked in order to access the other options. I can do that by adjusting the DWord value of "PrivacyAdvanced" under the "Internet Settings" key in the registry,

What I have not been able to find are the registry entries for the "First-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, the "Third-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, and the "Always allow

Hey, I was wondering if anyone could offer some advice on this one.

I was messing around on a Mac in OSX, and moved my NTFS formatted (in windows) drive into the Mac to access my music.

I used NTFS-3G for OSX in order to mount the drive as readable AND writable, and everything was fine. Drive worked, everything accessible, all good.

I booted up the Mac this morning, and to my horror, everything on the music drive (except some Mac directories starting with '.' was gone. Scary feeling..

The drive usage (98% used, 3GB free, or somewhere around there) is still shown correctly though, so I have some hope of recovering the data. The drive is back in the windows machine now, and it's still the same, nothing miraculously re-appeared.

I know not to write anything to the drive until the data is recovered.

I have a backup, but it's from August so I've lost quite a bit of music that I bought online, as well as some other stuff that was on that drive.

Any ideas on recovering the data, bearing in mind that the disk usage appears to be correct? As far as I can tell, a bug in NTFS-3G has written the allocation table (or whatever it is in NTFS) incorrectly, effectively hiding the data from view, but no disk-wiping operations have occured so it should still be there,.. somewhere..

I know there are disk recovery utils out there, but I've no idea which ones will help, and which ones might make the situation worse.

Many thanks in advance

Ian
 

A:NTFS-3G corrupted NTFS drive. Files missing but "disk usage" correct

Essentially what I'm looking for, if such a thing exists, is a way to recover the allocation table rather than the files themselves (which are hopefully still intact).

Hello rting,
You have quite a few different types of crashes there.
Before we investigate the underlying causes it would be wise to do the following.

1. Asacpi.sys

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Scroll down to the utilities category, then scroll down to the "atk0110 driver for windowsxp/vista/windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).

Download and install it.

Go to c:\windows\system32\drivers to check and make sure that the asacpi.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (not before).


2. McAfee is a frequent cause of BSOD's.
I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST!

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

"In Private" browsing might be better than nothing, but it has no memory. I am wondering if a viable alternative might be to create a User just for private browsing and encrypt that directory in C:/Users/user? Would that let me have "favorites" that were private? And would that allow sessions to restart after a crash?

Thanks, Bob

A:Encrypt C:/Users/username as an alternative to "In Private" Browsing

Not sure if I would encrypt the entire /user folder. you would need to unencrypt before doing anything else at that point.

"In Private" just means that no cookies/images/etc. are being stored permenantly on your computer. they are still saved temporarily, accessible, and recoverable and not encrypted...
What is InPrivate Browsing?

you could alternatively go with a standalone browser that runs from a USB Drive instead if this is that much of a concern and have the drive encrypted with truecrypt or something similar TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux

My roommate got a particularly nasty version of the windows 7 antivirus 2012, it even installed a fake version of Malwarebytes. I was able to remove it by starting in safemode, killing it's process and running spybot followed by an avast full system scan, then a boot time scan. Now several scans and restarts later all scans are coming back clean (sfc included).

That being said, after the malware was removed .exe files were broken, windows firewall wouldn't start and the service was missing from the services list [BFE was also missing] (manually fixed the registry via various posts on this forum, these are working again). The netbook still won't connect to the internet, and I suspect windows update is broken as well. The malware also did something to Avasts realtime web shield, the shield is stuck off, attempting to turn it on does nothing. While the malware was still on the computer clicking the 'turn on' button in avast would trigger a popup from the virus (not an avast popup, a popup from the malware itself). All of the system restore points have been corrupted as well.

So, I'm not really sure what to do next... I would usually do a clean install of the OS in a situation like this, but his netbook doesn't have an optical drive (it would be easy enough to back up all his files, if there is an alternative method for reinstalling the OS...?). Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

According to this official Microsoft post:

You can "Reduce the client TCP/IP socket connection timeout value from the default value of 240 seconds"

And you can do this by adding the value "TcpTimedWaitDelay" to the registry location "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters"

Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit (which I am running) did not have that value by default, but I added it and set it to 30 and even 10 and haven't noticed any real change in the "time wait" delay of 240 seconds...

Who or what OS is that microsoft post referring to? It seems to be generalized towards all versions of microsoft server 2003 and up?

"dependency chain" "windows 7" internet "windows explorer"

At the time of this writing, this search in Google will produce one result at best. Am I searching the wrong things? I have tried a couple handfuls of variants, and I am coming up with zilch.

Though I am fairly well versed in Windows 7 from working on other people's machines, I decided to stick with good old XP because of one issue above all else. When I instructed my firewall to block Windows Explorer from accessing the Internet it completely cut me off from the Internet, no ifs, ands or buts. My understanding of why this is happened leads me to believe the dependency chain for Internet access goes through Windows Explorer. I have long had a habit of blocking my File Manager of choice access to the Internet because... well, it's a file manager! Admittedly, my one experience with Windows 7 on my own machine was a retired student version of Server 2008 R2, but as soon as I found out that was the case, I decided not to make the move to Windows 7 and went back to my XP installation. I believe I was using Sunbelt Personal Firewall at the time. I now use PCTools Free Firewall.

Is this still the case with Windows 7? Is there a workaround if it is?

Hello all,
So I've had a list of current problems that have been driving me up the wall lately. I have a sager np9150 notebook with the following specs

gtx 680m

16gb ram @ 1600mhz
windows 7 64-bit home edition
750gb mechanical drive

So as some of you may be aware, i've cycled through various problems over the past year, which most are short lived. Most have consisted of BSOD errors and driver issues.
After having WoW crash on me countless times I decided that the newer drivers from nvidia were complete garbage and went back to 306.02 . I havent had any problems whatsoever in WoW with that driver, however I've been trying to play battlefield 3 for the past couple days and the game will stay up for anywhere from 1 minute to 20 mins before the game stops responding. This also just happened in a clean install of Crysis 2. The game stopped responding during the opening cinematic. The other issue is if i leave my computer alone for a little while ( lets say 20 mins ) i've come back to BSODs that failed to make minidump files. I've tried running disk defrag but it has resulted in 2 BSODs before finishing. I've cleaned out my vents almost weekly, tried all sorts of different drivers, ran CHKDSK in command prompt. and now im at a loss. I would love some insight. And to anyone who can just help me play games again, i would gladly buy you a virtual drink.

Check to see if windows is configured to collect the correct info?
You want small memory dumps - "MiniDumps"

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/174459-dump-files-configure-windows-create-bsod.html

Run the SF Tool which will collect info needed to analyse your issue (and hopefully any dump files):

   Tip
Ensure you click the "GRAB ALL" button and then wait for each window to appear in turn and then click OK

F4 and 7A are usually storage related /disk controller error, but can be related
to RAM and virus infection also.

Ntfs.sys is the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS drives.


So I would say a good starting point is to test your HDD's.

Download CrystalDisk and post up a screenshot.

Test your hard drive. Perform a Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Then run memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

I understand that this Windows service has something to do with maintaining (keeping) links to files on a network pointing in the right direction. I'm currently disabling this Windows service, seeing as I most probably don't need it (I only run a simple home network using a router).

I hope this doesn't affect the junction-point functionality or the NTFS file system in any other way. I know that Windows 7 uses hard links extensively for example.

I'm pretty sure it's safe to disable in my case. I'm just looking for a confirmation / second opinion. Would disabling this service harm the Windows installation in any other way? I mean besides losing network links updating.

I'm posting in the "tweaking" area of the forum because this is what I'm trying to do. Disabling stuff in Windows for the sake of performance.

Please don't answer with a simple "it is not recommended to mess with system settings" or things like that, unless you can tell me what would go wrong precisely. I'm expecting answers, specifics. Thank you.

A:"Distributed Link Tracking Client" service and NTFS junction points

The issue is that nobody can tell you precisely what disabling this service will do. The reason being that Microsoft has never fully documented what each service does. Do not try to read to much into the name. Many services do more that is documented - anywhere. Nobody can tell you for certain that disabling this service will not have a negative impact on your system. Since the performance benefits from doing this are essentially zero I would leave it alone.

I have had bad experiences from disabling a service I thought was unnecessary - but was.

It appears that some AV products will not function properly if this service is disabled. There areprobbaly others.

Normally if a user accidentially deletes a file and want to recover it then he can take the following steps:
Load one of the many "undelete" tools (like Recuva) and let it detect,analyze and copy the file to another partition.

Now assume that the partition where the deleted files is stored has no traffic (= nothing more is stored there).

So instead of copying the whole file to another partition it should be possible to recover it "in place".
That means a smart undelete-tool should be able just to re-create the previously deleted NTFS entries of the file and the sector chain on the original partition without having to perform a full copy operation..

All information is available.

Unfortunately I did not found such a smart undelete tool .
All of them require a lengthy copy-operation.

Why?

Maybe there is such a tool and I miss it.
Can someone give me a recommendation.

Thank you

A desktop PC with operating system Windows XP SP3 was running fine till yesterday. The desktop has a 120 GB Seagate hard disk which has 40GB primary boot partition C: and extended partitions D: and E: for data. All partitions are NTSC.

Yesterday, during booting process the blue screen was encountered with the error message “Unmountable Boot Volume”. The option of last known good settings did not work. Attempt to boot in safe mode also resulted in blue screen with the error message “Unmountable Boot Volume”

I booted the PC with a windows XP live CD. The Windows Explorer showed all three partitions --- however, while I could browse the partitions D and E .. the windows explorer froze (not responding) when I tried to browse the contents of boot partition C:

I launched the Disk Management utility, it showed C: drive as primary, active, healthy and 100 percent free. The utility reported the partition as RAW instead of NTSC.

I launched the free software “Testdisk” and performed the analysis. The software detected all partitions correctly and no problem was reported (such as “invalid NTFS boot” etc). The “Testdisk” reported C: drive as primary bootable. I was able to browse all directories of C: and back up my data with “Testdisk”.

Testdisk advanced utility reports the status of boot sector as OK and identical.

As Testdrive did not report any problem so I did not rewrite the partition table information nor did I rewrite the boot sector and master boot record (MBR)... Read more

Yesterday I suddenly started getting a Blue Stop Screen when starting up my computer. This happens both in Safe Mode and Normal Mode, and also when I try "Last Known Configuration."

Right click on the space and define a partition. The wizard will guide you. One of the steps during this process is formatting.

Hey Friends,

I Need to format my HDD from FAT32 to NTFS. i made a small mistake of not formatting the drive before adding the data to it... and now i cant put files larger than 4 GB. I have data more than what i can hold aside temporarily so i need a way to format the HDD with the data in it BUT "WITHOUT LOOSING" the data.

Anyone having any suggestions is more than Welcome to share their Knwoledge.
Thanks.

I am afraid and scared!! because i had a very big problem once with my HDD that a very large number of my files were converted to .CHK files hidden in the HDD from which i recovered almost all the files except those which were more than most important to me (text files), i had gone through literally 30,000 files but still have about 10 or more thousand files (.CHK) which i have no idea what they are...
Please Help.

My only suggestion and im not sure its a great one would be to partition the drive into two pieces put data in one half, reformat the other half, swap data over and merge partition back together as new ntfs drive

Edit
that would only be poss if drive was less than half full
or split 3 ways if drive is less than 2/3 full



Possible, hmm. but my drive is not that empty i have like only about 30 GB free out of 320 GB...
btw, it is possible... Check Free Partition Magic alternative & free Partition Manager Software for Windows PC, Workstation and Server - EaseUS.
i just need some guaranteed way, or someone who has done it before, so i know i wont loose the data.

Which should I download?

You can either download the pre-compiled ISO that you would burn to a CD and then boot from the CD, or you can download the auto-installer for the USB key. What this will do is format your USB drive, make it a bootable device, and then install the necessary files. Both do the same job, it's just up to you which you choose, or which you have available (whether it's CD or USB).

How Memtest works:

Memtest86 writes a series of test patterns to most memory addresses, reads back the data written, and compares it for errors.

The default pass does 9 different tests, varying in access patterns and test data. A tenth test, bit fade, is selectable from the menu. It writes all memory with zeroes, then sleeps for 90 minutes before checking to see if bits have changed (perhaps because of refresh problems). This is repeated with all ones for a total time of 3 hours per pass.

Many chipsets can report RAM speeds and timings via SPD (Serial Presence Detect) or EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles), and some even support changing the expected memory speed. If the expect... Read more

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hi

I did play with this idea when I first installed a 40gb slave drive (my main drive being a small 2gb) in one of my first ever PC's andyes it worked for me, most programs lets you choose the install path, so instead of c:\program files\..... I chose d:\program files\.... , I found there were the odd one or two programs that insisted on being installed on the C: drive, but on the whole it is possible to use an alternate drive.

I never tried it with a mapped drive however, but seeing as how mapped drives are treated as a physical drive then there should be no difference.
