Preferred Solution: Direct X show Wrong Detail

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.)

Sorry if the title does not make sense. I am wondering if it is possible to permanently display "Product Version" for every folder I visit.

A:How to permanently show a explorer detail?

Can you post a screen print of what you want to see? (Just click on the advanced button and upload it). "Product Version" is not a generic attribute but you can choose in folder options what you want to see.

Hi All. I have an Excel spreadsheet that allows users to select the filters they need in a pivot table to get counts of relevant records (originally built using slicers which I had to remove due to the users having older versions of Excel!) and then I have added a simple button macro to "export" the filtered records to a new sheet (basically the same as double clicking on the count).

The problem I have is that I need to show all fields in the pivot, i.e. I cant simply add another filter, but when the user presses the button, I only want to export one of the 'lists', whereas at the moment it exports a new sheet for every value.

Is there anyway of telling the macro which value it should export on button click?

Here is the macro.., (obviously copied from the internet!)

Sub MakeReports()
Dim c As Range
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
For Each c In .DataBodyRange.Resize(, 1)
c.ShowDetail = True
Next c
End With

End Sub

Failing that, would there be any way of renaming the new worksheets to match the titles in the pivot?

Many thanks in advance for your help

Hi

Ummm...I'm having a real hard time understanding just what it is you're trying to say here, and I'm sure that's why there aren't any replies to this post.
I'm going to take a shot at it and see if his is what you're asking.

If you can't see any file extensions for files in Vista, open Control Panel - Folder Options, then click the View tab and uncheck the box that says "Hide extensions for known File types".
I hope that's what you needed.

You have this "problem" because ".aaa" is not a recognized file extension. For performance reasons, Windows does not look beyond the file extension to determine the type of the file, which is why when you rename ".exe" to ".aaa", you loose the display of its properties. And likewise renaming anything to ".exe" to try and find file properties is just looking for trouble.

Hai Im new here..

Recently I was trying to add comments to movie folders so that i can keep a brief description about it when i click on it. It was easy to add comment then i had a bit trouble to get the comment getting displayed in the details pane...after playing with the registry for a while i got that solved as well.
Now I ended up with a problem where the comment being displayed eds with just some 3 or 4 words with the remaining given in dots (...) and I get a full display of it when i hover the mouse over it, which obviously goes way in 5 seconds or so.

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

You might get a picture of it if you have a small details pane on the right and make it show your processor details when you open thisPC.

I created a pivot table based on employee payroll deductions. The deduction field is the filter, name and amounts are the rows/columns.

I exported ALL my deductions then created the pivot table. I drop down the filter box and select the two items I want to create the report.

When I print the report, I would like to display the filter detail - ie "Retirement, Retirement Contrib" as filter criteria.

Is this possible?

This could be a symptom of this problem. Failing that, try reinstalling WMP and installing the latest version of DirectX. If you have WMP 9 can try upgrading to WMP 10, and if you have WMP 10 also try rolling back to WMP 9. Booting Windows in Safe Mode, deleting WMP, then reinstalling WMP may solve it.

After the restart, the problem of the wrong directing web links existed. AVG does not seem able to detect what's causing this, as complete systems scans do not produce any detected threats. What can be done about this besides formatting? Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi, new to the forum (initially posted to wrong forum) and not very good with computers- please excuse my lay language.
Two weeks ago, my Norton reported many problems (including "backdoor" and "trojan" but said that all were "resolved") and asked me to restart. Upon restart, log in immediately went to log off. Endless cycle could not be broken in any SafeMode. Boyfriend copied files from restore disk (winlogon.exe?) into proper registry (?) which allowed logon. Locked background advertising anti-spyware was successfully removed by running trusted anti-malware. Have continued running Malwarebytes, Spybot, and Norton for the past two weeks. Most problems disappeared, except one.
When using google/live/yahoo/ask.com/any search engine in either firefox or IE, some (not all) links send me to the wrong page- usually advertisement for anti-spyware. Clicking the same link sends to a variety of different pages. The name "clickfraudmanager.com" displays when I hover over links that direct incorrectly. As per online suggestions, disabled third party cookies and continue to run anti-malware but to no avail. Interestingly, the company that provides my internet says that I have a USB connection from my modem, but I do not. I fear a backdoor trojan- which would require a system reinstall (?). Would you suggest a reinstall or is there anything else I can do?

Hi,

some days ago, when analyzing another problem, i stumbled upon a fatal error in the CPU performance display in the Microsoft task manager. I wrote a little bit about this problem in the following post.

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2269972-weird-4gbit-s-nic-limit-without-rss?page=1#entry-8853...

In summary: for me, the task manager as well as the resource monitor and the performance monitor do not show the correct CPU utilization.

Here is an example.

I start a test and the CPU display of core 0 climbs to 100% in Task Manager.




The Resource Monitor shows the same thing.




Only the performance monitor shows the correct load, but the display it "inconsistent".




The processor load is normally shown up to max. 100%, but my core 0 run according to the performance monitoring with up to 120%. ??

The Process Explorer shows the correct utilization of my core 0.



HWiNFO also shows the load correctly.



I suddenly had the following apprehension.
If you cannot correctly measure the utilization of a system, so it's not possible to control its performance properly. ??

So I immediately opened a support ticket at Microsoft by telephone and then described the problem accordingly by email.

A few hours later I received an email with the following text. "Dear Mr. Fuchs, your support case has been closed."

That can not be true. ?

I noticed over the weekend when I go to speedtest.net it shows the wrong location. I live on the east outskirts of London yet it thinks my nearest test server is Aberdeen / Edinburgh. If I go to edge, the home/start page which can be customised shows weather for Edinburgh! I have manually customised for London to fix this rather than let it auto detect. But it's weird. If I open the maps app it shows me on the map in the correct location!

its worth noting that I am seeing the same problem on my iMac when I go to speedtest.net so it's not a Windows problem but it's still left me scratching my head and also wondering why the maps apps on both machines get the location correct. Both connect via Ethernet.

on my iPad and iPhone which use wifi, launching the speedtest app gives the correct location/nearest server

A:Speedtest.net and edge show wrong location

I'd heard that speed test will find the server nearest where your internet provider's address is, I have to manually choose Manchester as that's the closest to me but automatically it can choose Maidenhead or elsewhere other than where I am.

Using Windows Vista I Burned One of my Audiobooks that I had converted to MP3. I selected the option so it would be playable in data (MP3) capable CD players. When the burned disk loads in my sony cd/mp3 player stereo both the the tracks are out of order. They almost seem to skip every other ie... 2,6,3,7,4,8 and the folders lined up cd12, cd01, cd02, (the rest being fine, but cd12 at the beginning. Quite frustrating.

The files appear (titles) to be all lined up.

I just tried windows media player 11 and when I load a folder the last track starts then the rest follow in sync. It almost seems random. What am I overlooking?

thx

Hi

If I am having a problem with my PC and you guys say to me, copy and paste the systems activity into a thread so we can all see whats going on. Yeah, easy for you to say

I was having problems with my hard drive running on so I went to start\run\cmd and typed in c:task.txt and the system processes came up, I copied them all and tried to paste them into a thread and when I pasted the info, it pasted all over the freakin' place and was hardly legible for you guys to see.

Is there a better way?

Thanks
Brian

A:How do I paste a screen to a thread to show you whats wrong

Hi Brian,

This is actually quite simple, although I had a bit of difficulty fathoming it out for my first post. There are actually 2 main methods. The first, if all the necessary data is on the screen, is to use the 'Sniping Tool' and create an image which you save to your hard drive (you can tidy the image up in 'Paint' if you wish). If they are text files, then save them as normal. When you wish to include them in a post, or a reply to a post, you need to select the 'Advanced' option. One of the options here is 'Attachments' (symbolised by a paperclip). If you click on this, another window opens entitled 'Manage Attachments'. This is split into 3 sections. The top 2 sections are what you are interested in, whilst the 3 section lists the valid file types and restrictions (if any). The first section is 'Upload Fle from your Computer'. Here you can upload a maximum of 4 files from your computer. Simply click 'Browse...' and locate the required file(s) - 1 per box. I have no experience of the other option, 'Upload File from a URL', but I presume that it is used for when you wish to link to a website - perhaps someone could clarify this for me and explain this particular option. Either way, you then click 'Upload' in the appropriate section. The file(s) are then uploaded to the forum servers where they are allocated a reference number. You then need to click on 'Close this window'. When you next click on the paperclip, you will see a list of file(s) that you can include in ... Read more

Just got a new mobo/CPU, installed, everythings fine. I'm unsure if this problem was on the old hardware.. if it was I never noticed it. Overclock test time, so I run prime95 and go do some errands. Come back to the computer rebooted, no problem.. thats why we test. I go into event viewer, and notice all the times are 12 hours too fast. Things I did at 7:30am, are showing up as 7:30pm. Things I did at noon, are showing up as midnight the next day. So I check Prime95 results:

Hi all!

I've just recently began to use the jump lists more and more. In general they work fine but I use VectorWorks and I imported a .pdf into the application. Now the jump list only displays that imported .pdf but not the .vwx files native to that application. I'm pretty sure the jump list worked correctly before the import, but since I've come to rely on them just recently, I can't be a 100% on this.

How could I fix this and make the jump lists display the correct types of files? Just opening a native files with VW doesn't work as they do not become "recent files". I'm at loss here.

Thanks for reading this.

- not terribly good grammar in that header... sorry!
My problem is in my very long document (92,000 words), into which I've just replaced a font with another, that I downloaded from a reputable site.
I tell you about the reputableness because the problem I'm now experiencing I was having the other day, in a slightly different format...
When I turn on Show/Hide, which I do often, instead of seeing small dots representing character spaces, there are empty squares. (Sorry, I haven't been here for ages, and have forgotten how to post a screen-grab as evidence.)
A couple of days ago, the problem - now gone - was that in tables I was seeing euro signs instead of the little round thinggy with the four prongs.
So I would seem to have some deep-seated... SOMETHING going on, yeah?
Can anyone help, please?

I have an annoying problem with Vista's taskbar buttons and iconified windows not showing correct window miniatures anymore for drives, special folders with azure-green icons like Music, Documents etc., e.g. http://f.imagehost.org/0502/Immagine.jpg
Once I enter Documents\mydir for example the icon in the taskbar for that folder turns like that in the image instead of reflecting the folder mini-icon you're in at that moment!

There is nothing on the net about this kind of problem! I've Googled for hours!
Hope someone can help me to find and reset the correct key(s) in the registry.

Hello ... I have a flash drive attached to my Netgear wireless router that I make backups to and transfer files to and from other computers at home. It was formatted as NTFS and set up in the router about 2 weeks ago. I just noticed yesterday that all the folders in the drive have dates of 2003 -- even new folders I created today. The files inside all seem to be fine, with correct dates.

I am positive the drive did not start out this way. It was functioning normally. Does anyone know what could have caused these weird folder dates and how to prevent this from happening in the future? Is there any way to fix this? Could the backup program I am using be causing this problem? It is Syncback and it is doing automated backups to this drive.

The computer I am using is a new Asus T300 Chi with Windows 8.1.

Any ideas? I am stumped.

--Pat

A:Folders on a network attached drive show wrong date

It probably isn't the drive but the Router. You may have to enter the Router setup while connected via Ethernet cable and check the date. Check the documentation for the address to use in your browser, something along the line of 192.168.1.1, the last two numbers will vary between brands and maybe between models.

i have an acer laptop running win7, every week or so i lose all my log in details that are saved eg,the part of my bank log in details that are saved, my hotmail log in, even my area that is saved for my location for weather on the bbc weather site is gone
any help much appreciated
 

A:log in detail

Automatic Log-in details & other things you want a website to remember is usually achieved by that website placing a "cookie" file on your hard drive. Any "cleanup" utility you use will generally delete these cookie files which means those websites no longer have any reference to your details & preferences.

PS - It is very unwise to have any financial, PayPal or banking websites remember your login details!
Even if your Windows user-account is password protected, someone could still manage to bypass that password with special software. They would then have access to all your secure websites if their related cookies were not deleted.

I have a problem with all my direct3d games where they all crash sometime through. Some people told me to get direct X 8.1 instead of 9 which i have now. I tried alot of Dx9 uninstallers but I dont have the disc that alot of them need. Some dont work with service pack 2 which is what I got. I cant remove sp2 becuase I never had sp1 so i cant restore it back. I am running XP pro with a geforce5700FX amd athlon 64 3000+.
 

A:Need to uninstal direct X 9 to install direct X 8.1

There is no way this can be done safely in XP. You should open a thread for your gaming problem in the Games forum. Someone may have an answer for you there. DirectX 8.1 should not be a part of it.

In opening that thread, give your system details and exact error messages or descriptions of the "crash".

Does anyone know what happens, in detail, when you format a hard drive. I was always under the impression that it simply erased all data on the hard drive - here is the problem, I have been reading that it is possible to recover data from a formatted hard drive and that a hard drive only has a low level format once in its life time when it is in the factory?

Any info would be greatly appreciated,

Mark
 

A:Formatting in detail

Yes, there are special programs that are able to search an entire hard drive sector-by-sector to retrieve information on a formatted hard drive. As far as a HD only having one low level format in its life time is new to me.
