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 don't remember how long ago I submitted this problem, but it does not appear to have been addressed (or if it has I cant find the reply) I still have field within the properties box which do not have corresponding columns within the Explorer window. 
I seems to me to be a real case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing as whoever designed these two items didn't exchange details. This was my original query "

I can't sample music clips OR purchase any songs from MSN Music. When I click on the sample or purchase links, the page just sits there. Nothing. I've tried accessing music.msn.com via WMP10, IE, and MSN Premium. None of them work. Running Windows XP Home Edition, latest version of Media Player. I've tried turning off ALL security: Windows Firewall, Norton Internet Security, Spywareblaster. Still nothing. I can play music clips from other multimedia sites: CDNOW, iTunes, Songtouch, even Wal-Mart Music Downloads! I can also play streaming video clips from anywhere, including MSN Video. Sound and all. Go figure.

I've tried getting help from MSN Tech Support, but they can't determine what's wrong. So, thought I'd go to the experts!

Any suggestions you might have would be appreciated.
 

A:Window Media Player 10 and MSN Music

Hello, anyone can help?

I further discovered that the reason WMP10 doesn't play clips is because the install never downloaded and installed the Microsoft Music Assistant "helper" program!!! I tried going directly to the support site where I could d/l this file but when I click to install from the web page, nothing happens.

Does anyone know of an alternate place I can find this little program to d/l and install???

Original desktop had Win 7 Pro, I did a backup of Win 7 with Macrium and before the deadline of 29th July, I downloaded and upgraded to Win 10 Pro, activated successful.
I then reinstalled my backup of Win 7. I have 2 internal hard-drives installed, C:\ Win 7 .
On the second hard-drive D:\ I did a clean install of Win 10 from downloaded ISO. So I have Win 7 on C:\ and Win 10 on D:\ And I can choose which system to boot from at start up/restart.
My questions are ,
Why do the drive letters reverse when I boot to Win 10, eg, Win 10 is now C:\ and Win 7 is now D:\? (only shows up when I'm in Win 10)
Also, how long can I run Win 10 on the second drive.? (Win 10 is activated)

New computer just purchased this month directly from HP.The computer was advertised as "Windows 7 Professional (available through downgrade rights from Windows 10 Pro". I thought the computer would install as Windows 10 Pro and then could be downgraded to Win 7 Pro.  But it installed as Win 7 Pro.  It came with 2 Operating System DVDs, one for Win 10 Pro and one for Win 7 Pro.  Both DVD's say the software and drivers are already installed and they are for reinstallation and repair only.  And I read that both licenses for Win 10 Pro and Win 7 Pro are included and  installed.  So my question is how do I change the OS from Win 7 Pro to the Win 10 Pro?    Do I have to insert the Operating System DVD for Win 10 Pro and do a complete new installation which my understanding will reformat the hard drive and remove all of Win 7 Pro.   Will this reformat only the C: drive partition or all the partitions  C: drive partition & D: Recovery partition & the EFI partition? Also, if I switch the computer to Win 10 Pro can I later go back to Win 7 Pro  by going through the same process?  Thanks

Yes, you can upgrade to windows 10 with the recovry Disc and also downgrade later with the recovery Disc.The PC will fetch the key from the BIOS during installation and you do not need to worry about activation as long as you install the OS from the supplied disc.

I damaged the original drive on my Toshiba Satellite. So I bought a new Toshiba HHD for it. Originally when I first mounted the drive, I got an error saying the drive was not formatted NTFS so it would not install the OS. So I put the drive in my other laptop and formatted it (yes - NTFS). Now I put the freshly formatted drive into the laptop I want it to run on, I install the windows_7 and all goes good until I am personalizing the computer section when I noticed it didn't ask me about setting up the network or any other thing except for the time & zone. Once it rebooted I had the OS running but can't connect to the router. Long story - short...I wiped the drive - reformatted - reinstalled windows...Same Issue. For some reason it will not load a bunch of the hardware drivers, so it doesn't recognize things like the NIC.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

I have read the tutorial on How to Create a Ssytem Image Backup and have a few questions as a new Win 7 user:

From the tutorial Backup Complete Computer - does this really mean what it says ..... Quote "This will show you how to create a system image (clone) backup of the entire hard drive..."

I have used Acronis on my XP pc and wonder if the backup app in 7 makes a full HDD image of not only the operating system and system settings but all documents, program files, videos,photos etc - in other words everything on the HDD.

Is this as effective as Acronis or Macrium - any opinions?

Will it create a bootable disk in the event of a crash or will a 3rd party app be required?

Hi,

I have a Lenovo laptop and had to do a full factory install from the recovery partition. All went well but then I got 116 updates for windows. I set it going and several hours later it said "Restart" so I did.

It got to 9% and sat there for two hours. I finally pulled the plug, started in Safe Mode and it reverted the updates.

I tried again with only half checked and same again. Did some research and found on the msoft site, it may be the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) causing the problems. I updated those drivers, well, tried as it came back "already up to date."

I then tried updating in small batches of ten and got a lot of them updated but it is still showing seven-Critical updates, but still cannot get past that 9% hanging.

Any help with this?

Can I remove IRST (how??) as I do not use any RAID and it would certainly drop one thing out of the "might be the cause" list.

Thanks

Simplest solution to try first is a system file check to ensure all of them are Vista. Any problematic ones, corrupted ones or incorrect versions found have a good chance of automatically being fixed. This may then allow upgrade install.

Hi,
I've got a problem that is driving me absolutely crazy - no matter what I do, I just plain cannot connect to my laptop. I have a few services running (e.g. VNC), but every local port to which try to connect from outside (mainly my internal network) the laptop itself results in "connection timed out". I can't even ping the machine.

I've already tried anything that I could think of - decativate the firewall, explicitly punching holes into the firewall - uninstall my anti virus (even though it contains no firewall) start in safe mode. Nothing helps. Windows doesn't log anything regarding incoming connections, even if a add an explicit log rule to the Win7 firewall. To my laptop, it looks like no packet for an incomung connection ever reaches it.

Furthermore, booting a Linux from USB stick results in perfectly open ports for VNC, SSH etc. using the same basic network configuration. So it no hardware problem.

I'm completely out of ideas, which is why i ask for help here. :-) -- Does anybody have any idea where to look for the problem or its solution? Is this a known problem? How could it be fixed? I'm ready and willing to try almost anthing (short of plainly reinstalling, as I haven't got enuogh time for this, expecially considering the sh*tload of programs I'd have to reinstall).

Thanks in advance for any help in the matter.

Hi all,

I'm on a dual booted Toshiba laptop (Win7pro+8.1 - for reasons and basic setup, please see first post this thread: Multi Boot computer - how to keep data and programs in sync ), which has been running real fine so far for about one and a half years.

When setting up this System, I completely wiped the disk and installed the OSes according to some of the tutorials found around the seven- and eightforums. Of course, I had to manually download and install all drivers afterwards. Among the things installed, I must some "non-driver" programs hidden in Toshiba's "driver" download section, and that got me "Toshiba Service Station" installed.

Service Station turned out to be issuing maintenance-related messages from Toshiba (e.g. WRT battery pack problems they have been having - I was not affected), but also software updates (like for a Toshiba-supplied Blue-Ray player that I also installed accidentally).

About a year ago, though, Service Station started (and has since kept) bugging me about a BIOS / UEFI update. I refused it at first because I didn't (don't) know the risks of installing a BIOS update on a dual booted system.

Other sounds on the computer are also playing (MSN, AIM, system sounds). What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

The other day I posted my problem with getting a new computer which had win7 installed. When downloading all my backups which had been on an exterior drive, they ended up in strange places. Suddenly, I had libraries and the library had folders but all the folder were named differently. No more My Documents, my this, my that. Instead they dropped the my, which by itself would not have bee a big deal but then they put my document files into my music folder. Well that got me mad.

I'm a head-hunter and I keep everthing in Outlook Contacts. In those contacts I have links to my candidates' resumes folders. I also have links from my clients to their folders. However, after downloading, having thought I had done everything by the letter, I found the links didn't work. What a mess. I have over 1200 candidates categorized by qualifications. I have clients in a similar situation. Their links don't work either.

Then some very nice people from this site suggested I create partitions and lose the libraries. At first I was frightened. I had heard of partitions but had never been courageous enough to actually try them out. I was also angry with Microsoft because they changed things for no reason. Time is money and I'm losing money when I have to dick around with the computer instead of on the phone head-junting.

Feeling defeated, I bit the bullet, downloaded the software MiniTool Partition. It seemed easy enough but I have run into some snags.

Normally, you would just drag them (copy, not move) with the mouse--from the external drive to F:Music and Videos. Can't you do that? But I may be misunderstanding you.

However:

First I would decide how many partitions you ultimately want to end up with on your internal drive.

You need the one named system

You need C

You don't need the others.

Plan 1: put all of your personal files on C and subdivide C with a folder structure: Music, Pictures, Video, Work, whatever suits you. 2 total partitions.

Plan 2: put only Windows and programs on C, and put all data on D. Subdivide D with a similar folder structure. 3 total partitions.

Plan 3: Put Windows on C. Use several different data partitions D, E, F, and so on. One for each data type (music, video, pictures, etc). 4 or more total partitions.

I would lean toward plan 2. You seem to have chosen plan 3.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each of those 3 plans. Plan 3 works, but having a bunch of partitions can be wasteful because you can never anticipate the proper size and growth rate of the data type on a partition.

Your pictures partition is already 80% full.

If you know for sure that you want to stay with those particular partitions, you should be able to use that tool to resize them.

Or you could delete all but system... Read more

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.
 

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

Hey guys, on my laptop i currently have this issue where my music seems to come up when your in the folder. its in blue writing and has a number in brackets which im presuming is how many files ive got in there or something like that. My computer does not have this and i also wish to remove this from my laptop without having to restore to default folder settings (although that seems to be greyed out to despite me making changes earlier)

A:Music folder displaying a my music option and a number in brackets

Hello MajorFoley,

You should be able to click on View (menu bar) -> Group by -> (none) to change the folder view to what you wanted instead.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Hope this helps.

I am having a problem that tons of people are having with the install of the music manager, but upon looking for solutions, they either work for a small amount of people or they are 3 pages long, out of most peoples ability range..mine at least

...and I am avg, at least

I am first getting an error code 1717 and then "error 4201 the instance name passed was not recognized as valid by a wmi data provider" -- both revolve around the service "Windows Event Log" not running.

I went into the registry on two keys and edited two permissions to allow...to no avail

I rebooted in safe mode, ran cmd, renamed some file to file2, upon restarting it is supposed to generate a new file.

Can anyone help. One person said it may involve a new installation. please , no.

That can't be it, I just did one two weeks ago.

Thanks so much. And Happy Thanksgiving
Eric

First, I wanted to listen to a clip on Amazon and I clicked "listen" for Windows Media Player and then another time for Real Player, since I have BOTH. All it would do was save it to my computer (entitled "hurl") and then I couldn't open it. It didn't even give the option of opening it--that was "grayed out."

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music. I just want to get a song occasionally.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi, anybody can help me how to get Metro Music App to read and play my music library from Synology 212j+ network drive?
Thing is it works fine for standard windows 8 media player so why the heck does it not work for Metro Music App?

When I select a song from the explorer it is played by metro but where are all the other files?
I have a Dutch - not yet supported region - Windows Account, so cant login music and xbox.
I have added synology shared music folder to my desktop music library but explorer keeps warning me that some features may not work so I have also indexed the folder but still no success

It gives me the creeps these complications and Windows may be loosing another user to the Apple platform (which would mean spending a lot of money to replace my windows home system but at least everything is compatible - I guess)
please help, I tried a lot already

Hi there
Goede Morgen !!

Remember that W8 is still technically in BETA so there is more to come out.
Since multi-media and connectivity is very important this I'm sure will be fixed in the final builds of W8.

I shouldn't base your purchasing requirements against what's in a BETA build of an OS. -- Wait till the Final before making that decision -- and meantime use something like Winamp or plenty of other free music playing apps most of which can also stream to and from smart phones etc.

Cheers (Tot Ziens)

A:HELP! music is playing in the background but no music program is open!

Are you close to a radio station's transmitter site and antenna? That sounds like "RFI" (Radio Frequency Interference" getting into your speaker system.

When you get it, unplug the speakers from the PC but leave them powered on and the volume up and see if you still get it. If you do it's RFI and the speaker system is picking it up or it's coming through the AC power line to the speakers. If this just started I would suspect either a bad cable ground or just a dirty plug connection somewhere in the system.

First: I recently had all my cds stolen and am now having to replace them by burning copies of them. I went out and bought some "Music CD-R" to see if it makes a difference. I only bought like 30 as a trial, but haven't used them yet. So the question is, does it actually matter if you use the music specific ones or can you use the normal data CD-R's with no loss in quality?

Second: What is the best program to just rip CD's? I have an older version of Nero but it doesn't seem to like working on XP a lot. Right now I'm stuck using WMP to upload them at 192k and then burn them back on with that. Any suggestions are quite welcome.
