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 been having problems with Media Center, not downloading the guide.  I have been trying to follow all of Microsoft's recommendations for a fix.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.  The advice told me to go into Services and find two files on the list and make sure they were both started:

Windows Media Center Receiver Service (was started), and
Windows Media Center Scheduler Service (wasn't started, I started it).
Then it told be to go to Show Processes from all Users.  And find six files on the list.  The instructions assumed the files would be there.  Only one of the files is. 
How do I get the missing five files on the list?:
ehmsas.exe (missing)
ehrecvr.exe (on the list)
ehsched.exe (missing)
ehschell.exe (missing)
ehtray.exe (missing)
mcGlidHost.exe (missing)

Microsoft's directions assumed that these files would all be there.  It did not say what to do if any were missing.

Please HELP!!!

So, this is a major problem that my website coder just realized no one else is aware of.
We went to search for the list of updates done to my computer & they weren't there. Some were, but not all. He checked his computer & same issue.
I can't believe all these years this has been a problem & no one is aware of them.
I need to remove this update - Prolific - Other hardware - Prolific USB to Serial Comm Port
I have an old mouse I use & it caused such problems, that it gave me blue screen & I couldn't get my computer to boot into Windows until I unplugged the mouse.
I have to shut her down now so I'm very nervous it's going to happen again.
How can I remove that update & stop it from reinstalling in the future?

A:Microsoft doesn't show all updates

Try this:Unplug the converter.If you're running XP, click Start > RunIf you're running 7, click the Start orbthen in either type in appwiz.cpl and press [Enter].
Look for something like "P... USB to Serial" - the publisher will be Prolific Technology INC and remove/uninstall it.If you're running XP, click Start > RunIf you're running 7, click the Start orbthen in either type in devmgmt.msc and press [Enter].
In Device Manager you will find an unrecognized item shown with a big yellow question mark or exclamation point - right-click it and select uninstall.
Reboot the system.

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.


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. ?
Dear Microsoft, determining and displaying the CPU loa... Read more

Hi: I have made a photo story in Photo Story 3.1. The pics were in color, I added music and saved it. When I play it back from the desktop, it plays only in black and white. What's up with that? When I preview it from within the program it's all good in color?

A:Microsoft Photo Story 3.1 Saving show

Sounds like there is some corruption in the effects component. Have you tried to reproduce the problem with a new project?

Is it a lot of photos? It might be too much of a pain if so but you might try switching the effect to something other than none or black and white for each then save that project. Then re-open that project and put the setting back to none for each photo and see if that corrects the problem.

Mostly just "guesspeculating."

The image does show when I am previewing the webpage just not in the design view. It's quite annoying since I can't see where my images are when I am designing the layout.

Has anyone tried viewing Microsoft Powerpoint Slide Show using two screen? I had tried connect the two laptop COM 1 port but still cannot. Anyone know why?

A:View Microsoft Powerpoint Slide Show on Two Screen

The best chance that you might have would be to go to www.microsoft.com/powerpoint, find, download and install the free "Powerpoint Viewer." Open the presentation once on one display, then click once on the presentation file (.ppt), hold down the Shift key, right-click on the file again, choose "Open With..." and find the Powerpoint Viewer application to use. That way you'll actually be using two separate programs to open the file, lending two separate displays.

Hello everyone. Couple days ago i installed Windows 7 on my computer and as usual i checked if there is any updates available. I installed ~140 important updates, but my PC's time is still incorrect. Since my PC location and timezone are set to russian, my timezone settings have to be like (UTC +03:00) Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd (RTZ 2). But still, when i open my date and time settings, i see (UTC +03:00) Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, without RTZ2 and clocks on my pc are one hour ahead.
I've checked for new updates several times again, but Windows Update still says that there is no important updates available. There is 89 optional updates available, but KB2998527 is not shown in this list. And yes, i did hide a few important updates, but there is still no KB2998527 among them. Below you can see a few screenshots from my update center, if there is any use of them. Any solutions?

Microsoft launched Windows 10 on July 29, 2015, with the mission of bringing it on 1 billion devices by 2017, including here desktop computers, laptops, tables, and smartphones.

Yesterday, the company revealed that after 9 months since launch, Windows 10 was running on 300 million devices across the world, which makes it the fastest adopted operating system ever released by Microsoft.

The software giant has been saying the same thing since 2015 and comparison stats after 9 months on the market indeed seem to indicate that Windows 10 recorded better adoption figures than Windows 7, which is generally referred to as the most successful Windows version to date (together with the outdated Windows XP, of course).

Figures put together by VB show that Windows 10 needed exactly 281 days (approximately 9 months) to reach 300 million installs (between July 29, 2015, and May 5, 2016), while Windows 7 did the same in 462 days (about 15 months) between October 22, 2009, and January 27, 2011. This means that Windows 10 was installed on 300 million devices 181 days (six months) faster than Windows 7.

30 million installs in just one month.

Screenshots are a very handy way to show someone what you can see on your display, but on their own, they only tell part of the story. When you share that screenshot, the chances are you'll still have to explain its relevance - but Microsoft is aiming to streamline this whole process with a new tool from its Office team.

Microsoft Snip is available now as a beta release - and given that this is preview software, you should expect to encounter bugs and issues with it along the way.

Source: Microsoft Snip via The Verge

A:Microsoft launches Snip for Windows, turning screenshots into "show-and-tell"

Snip (Preview) is inspired by the theme of current Windows 10. I am running on Windows 8.1, the default actions are to run on start, and replace the PrintScreen function. It does not affect Alt+PrtScr.

The toolbar sits at the top center of the screen, and drops down with a mouse hover. You can Take a Snip, Open Whiteboard, or Camera, with a smaller icon to access the Library.

There is also an icon in the system tray, with similar options and an Exit. As shown below, I used the Print Screen button which allows for an snip of the screen, with window-detection. A zoomed bubble appears for better accuracy, as such:

Right-click from system tray


Settings for Microsoft Snip (Preview).
New Whiteboard


Toggle the title commands on/off using [...].

Capture of Firefox using window-detection.
New Photo


Select an attached webcam to take a screen capture.

This appeared after closing the New Photo, as my webcam is disabled.

No noticeable drag on performance.

Microsoft Snip is still Preview/BETA.

I am trying to setup a default user or machine setup for how win7 handles folder view options. I want show hidden folders to be set to on for all users and the hide extensions for know file types to be unchecked or turned off ffor all users (so extensions show)
I have located them in the registry but they do not seem to be applied to all users.
Below is the registry settings I have set

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

When I create a new account to test the folder options are still hiding hidden files and not showing extensions.

Any suggestions


A:show hidden folders show file extensions thru registry

You're close but in the wrong area.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
show and hide files is a profile specific key and therefore can be modified by user accounts. if you would like to change the default, navigate to key:
HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explorer\advanced\folder\hidden and \hidefileext
there are keys in there that set default behaviors.

I'm having a family reunion on Saturday at which there will be a screen for a slideshow of photos. We have a folder of around 1500 pictures which we want shown on the night. I tried windows movie maker, spent hours arranging the photos so that they were in no particular order and in the end it couldn't deal with the large file size. I have also tried smilebox but it won't let me import the photos en masse and I can't be bothered individually clicking 'add' on them all.

Basically I want a simple software that will allow me to add all 1500 photos at once and will jumble them up for me so that they're not in alphabetical order (the way shuffle would work on an ipod, no picture would be shown twice). Any suggestions welcome asap. Thanks

I have been subscribing to "Microsoft Security Advisory Notification" and a lot of other Microsoft news with my personal Microsoft account and many years ago I added my work mail as where subscriptions should be sent. Now several acquisitions later
that old mail domain will be shut down and I will not get mails sent to that address anymore.
I have been trying to add my new work mail as where those mails should be relayed, but it is not allowed to add an existing work mail as a subscription address in your private Microsoft account. You
must log in with a Microsoft account to create new alerts and I am not allowed to create a Microsoft account with my work mail, so I can create new subscriptions to that address. I get the feeling of a catch 22.
I find it really weird that your now allowed to send Microsoft news and especially the "Microsoft Security Advisory Notification" to your work mail, where you usually have a need to be notified about these kind of news.
Anyone got a suggestion about what I am doing wrong or have any idea of a feasible way to get this information sent to your work email?

We use a third-party Microsoft patch management system, unfortunately we have to approve all patches manually. It has become a monotonous task to jump on the security bulletin and manually "take-note" of all of the updates released (KB numbers)
to mitigate that vulnerability. After I take note of all of them, I have to jump on the "third-party Microsoft patch management system" and approve every patch (KB #) associated with that Bulletin. 
I am wondering if there is an easier way to get a list of all of the new Microsoft patches released just for a specific Microsoft Security Bulletin. My current method is just sifting through the Bulletin and copying/pasting every KB number I find that is
designed to patch the vulnerability.
I would assume there is somewhere I can go or a tool I can utilize which would allow me to get the list of all of the KB numbers that need to be approved.

Hello maskin26,

Make sure that you don't have any media in the drives (cd,floppy,etc)

Was anything recently added before the problem?

Boot into the BIOS and make sure that the HDD is recognized by the system and check the boot order.

Hello. This is my first time to post a thread here at Techguy.org so I hope this site would make a good impression for me. I am
currently studying IT so this techie forum stuff would soon come in handy. I would just like to know why does each time I troubleshoot my netbook device (Acer Aspire One 722) under Devices and Printers it fails to install and fix itself. The devices are
microsoft teredo tunneling adapter and the microsoft ISATAP adapters (1,2 and 3). First of all what are these devices and their importance and how to troubleshoot it manually. Then is there anything I can do to Prevent this, an exclamation mark next to my device is for me irritating to see. One more thing. Is it safe to uninstall it?? How about reinstalling it after that??. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys. I have windows updates set to manual. Yesterday i checked for updates  and found more that 10 important updates. I selected all for installing. I recieved two _80070103  error
messages for  "Microsoft - Pointing Drawing - Microsoft Hardware USB Mouse" and "Microsoft - Keyboard, Other hardware - Microsoft Hardware USB Keyboard" updates. I looked at update history and found out 8 similiar update failures !
 I have windows 8.1 and i use wireless keyboard and mouse.  Shall i just unistall that failed updates or it might affect my mouse and keyboard performance? Thank you!

A:microsoft - pointing drawing - microsoft hardware usb mouse download fail.

Hi Alona,
If you receive Windows Update error 80070103 while installing updates, you might be trying to install a driver that is already installed on your computer or a driver that might be less compatible than one you already have installed.

So, if you did not encounter any performance issue about mouse and keyboard before, you can hide these updates and don't install them again.

On my desktop (windows xp) I have Microsoft Works Suite 2005. Recently Windows update gave me an update for Microsoft Works Suite 2003. My computer accepted it ok........but, my laptop (windows vista) rejected the update? Is there an update for the 2005 version or do they just bunch them together?

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool. When done, DDS will open two (2) logs
1. DDS.txt
2. Attach.txt
Save both reports to your desktop.
Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here or here. Extract the contents of the zipped file to your desktop.
Double click GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please agree to do so.
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.
In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...Sections
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once the scan completes, click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt".
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop

Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries without proper guidance from an expert user.

...when finished, please post those logs back here. Thanks!

A:Issue linking to a Microsoft Word document in Microsoft Access

Welcome to TSG jcantini,
Since no one is offering any thing here I'm going to suggest you save the document in the current version of word and reistablish/rebuild the link. I suspect this is an older version of access running with office 2010? mdb file type?

If you google "the ole server isn't registered access 2010" there are tons of confusing suggestions out there! Good luck..
