Q: Windows Update/Windows Search/Personalize Desktop will not load

Hi My first post here and I m wondering if someone can help with my problem since I ve completely run out of ideas For the last few months I have been unable to load Windows Update Windows Search or the Personalize Desktop option when right clicking on the desktop When I click on these items a window will open for a second completely white and then close instantly There s seemingly no way around this and the same is true in Safe Mode Suspecting a virus trojan or similar I have run a number of scans AVG SpyBot Ad Aware Malware Bytes Kaspersky Norton command line sfc etc Apart from a few tracking cookies nothing has been found Running HijackThis also revealed nothing untoward I ve search the MS Knowledge base extensively and not found anything There are similar problems regarding specific error numbers but I do not get one just a window that opens then quickly closes I have tried MS s own FixIt tool for Windows Update and it didn t make any difference I can still search using the quick search bar in the start menu but clicking quot search everywhere quot does Update/Windows not will load Desktop Windows Search/Personalize nothing I can still change my desktop background by right clicking on an image and choosing quot set as desktop background quot I cannot run Windows Update All of my other software is completely up Windows Update/Windows Search/Personalize Desktop will not load to date I still suspect that this is some sort of very clever trojan rather than an OS error but since I m not getting any error messages I can t be sure Any advice would be very much appreciated

Preferred Solution: Windows Update/Windows Search/Personalize Desktop will not load

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can you run regedit?

Access the Microsoft website?

Update your installed AV program?

What other system anomalies exist?

I have a problem loading many things such as windows update, the windows search(the search within windows) and some other things. I think it may be active x or something, but it is enabled in IE so I'm not sure what the problem is.

This is a fairly old computer. I just recently had a problem with Windows Activiation, but I've had it for years. The window would not load for activation so I ended up using a crack. I ran virus scans with AVG and the such and cleaned up the computer.

A:Can't load windows update, windows search, and other things

Updates are probably being an issue due to the crack - if that's the case, we're unable to support you.

If you copy is legal, all you have to do is contact Microsoft for valid key :-)

A:Windows Desktop 'Personalize' Option is Very Buggy

Never mind, fixed it by deleting everything in my Themes folder.

For anyone wondering, do this:

Type in %appdata% and hit enter

Delete everything in there and you're done.

After installing most recent critical update, my computer restarts and I get a balck screen with a little window that says "Setting up personalized settings Desktop Update" or something of the like (may have left a word out) and it never goes away. I can pull up task manager, end task, but explorer.exe also ends. If I then run task explorer.exe, the little window comes back.

I've system restored to before the update and I'm fine, then windows reinstalls the update and I have the same problem. UAC is off, i'm on admin account.

What do?

A:Windows Desktop won't load after most recent update

Use system restore and set update to not to do automatic. When the update comes just right click on it then, hide.

I am having a problem with the Windows Central app crashing on load for Windows 10 (14393.10). I have uninstalled the app and re-downloaded it from the store. It does the same thing.
To note, the problem started after that quick 1 day cumulative update between Windows 10 (10586.464) and the Anniversary Release (14393.10).
This is the only app that crashes. It works fine on my mobile (Lumia Icon).
Any suggestions outside of resetting the PC?

This Toshiba computer had the Windows 7 Updated loaded onto it. Now when the computer starts up I receive the Safe Mode etc...options. I select Start Normally and from there is when it takes about an hour or more to load windows.

When the system finally loads, to click on anything takes about 10 minutes or more to populate anything.

A loading error message is received in the bottom right hand corner which says something about logging in as administrator and loading a disc.

This is my friends computer(previously mine) and I need to get to the pictures and save them in case I'm going to need to reset anything. If someone can tell me how to get at the pictures faster or fixing this without wiping out the pics that would be great. Much appreciated!! Tiff

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
Disable your Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
Some Rookit infection may damage your boot sector. The Windows Recovery Console may be needed to restore it. Do not bypass this installation. You may regret it.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:



Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Note: If you have difficulty properly disabling your protection programs, refer to this link --> How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Do not mouse click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

For AVG antivirus and anti-spyware security software users only.

Quote:




Due to recent changes in AVG and how it interacts with CF, AVG must be uninstalled to run ComboFix. You will get a message from CF stating such.

If AVG will not uninstall, it is first recommended to uninstall it with this AppRemover by Opswat. The AVG uninstaller can be downloaded from here > AppRemover.exe Go to their homepage and you will see they have support for removal of other AV's as well AVG appremover tool.

Hi wadlip,

I have done exactly the same fixes as you - to no avail. Nothing works. I am surprised by a lack of response by Microsoft. In addition to not being able to update, i cannot update the definitions for Windows Defender. This issue has definitely something to do with BITS.
If i stumble over the solution, i'll post here. I have all night to find the fix

I somehow did something to the PERSONALIZE screen so that now when I go to it to try to change something it only stays visible for about 5 seconds, with a whirling blue circle, then goes black for 1 second and returns to the desktop.

At the bottom of that window there's a place that says SLIDE SHOW. There used to be a picture there, now there's a black screen which I think is what is causing the problem. I don't know what I did to make it a black screen there, and can't fix it because it disappears too quickly.

Any ideas?

Hello mizshay, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this started to hopefully fix it.

Hope this help,

Good afternoon, guys.

2 weeks ago, I had a wallpaper problem where my wallpaper would no longer change. I went into the Appdata folder where the old one was at (via a tutorial I found somewhere online) and I deleted it. Since then, I was able to change wallpapers. However, I still discovered that my Personalize menu was still broken.

Basically, while it still allows me to put on different wallpapers and screensavers, the Personalize menu will never change, but it will be changed on the computer. I also can no longer save themes (like a wallpaper with a window color) like I used to do a lot. It just stays the same as you can see here (I also have a screen saver on while it says "none").

Before anything, I would've done System Restore ages ago, but since it's been a few weeks so I already lost the restore points.... I screwed up, I know.

You should update the SP, also. That can be part of the problem. SP1 is not even suported anymore.

Do you have all the updates?

Here is my problem with Windows Desktop Search: I have searched their help the Windows Help and Support pages, but I have not found how to search in filenames only? Every time I do a search it finds ALL FILES CONTAINING THE SEARCH CRITERIA, either in the name or contents! I only want to see those files listed that have the words I am searching for in the filename itself and NOT thos files with it in its contents.

Someone please explain what I am overlooking to this simple request.

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I'm a new forum member and I don't have displayed yet in my signature what machine or OS I'm using. So here it is:
Dell Dimension DXP051, Intel Pentium D CPU 3.00GHz 2.99 GHz, 2.00 GB Ram; Windows XP Home Ver. 2002, SP3

A:Windows Desktop Search: How to search for filenames only?

Hi, I don't know if I read your post right but have you tried typing your request in the 'all or part of the file name' box as that in theory should only display file names containing the criteria you selected? If that doesn't work you could adjust the search settings to look only in a specific place, date when file was created/modified. Apart from that there are free programs that function as Windows Vista instant search feature. I would suggest looking at CNET.com under downloads section as I don't know the name of the program off the top of my head. Hope that helps.

A:Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Hi sirdanceal0t,
I had a similar problem when Windows XP SP3 was released it was only designed for Intel processors, so if you have a AMD processor it will cause your system not to load, if you are running a AMD processor if i were you try and get back to the System Restore Point or if that fails reimage your pc and just before installing SP3 looks for the patch/fix for your processor model, then install SP3 and it should all be fine.

On the other hand if you have a Intel processor i woulldn't know what to advise.

Hello every one.. I have collection of about 1000 wallpapers and I want them to cycle randomly as my background.. the thing is when I set the wallpaper to shuffle between them it sets some of those pictures as background more often then the other.. I would like for the random system to work like it puts every of those pictures as a wallpaper once and when every one of those 1000 has been set a wallpaper once it will start over again in new random order.

I don't think I'll be able to do that in the default settings but is there some wallpaper changer that works like that??

A:Personalize -> Desktop Background -> Shuffle SUX

right click on desktop click perzonilze then there should be another tab called desktop background click that and choose all the pictures you want as a background and set how fast you want each wallpaper to change to a new one like say every 10 secs and so the picture is differnt every cyle click on the little box next to were it says shuffle then click on were it says save changes and now you should have a wallpaper on your desktop that changes randomly to what ever pics you added at a rate of what ever specified time you set it at like change every 10secs

Hi

I'm running Windows 7 on my laptop and I've noticed that it gets rather slow at times whenever I click on the Personalization Window. In other words, it takes forever to load. I am still able to use my system but the Personalize Window takes a long time to load ....

Please see this video for more details :

Long Loading Personalization Win 7.avi - Windows Live

Just click and save it to your desktop, take a look at it and please tell me what your thoughts are ?

My system runs smoothly the majority of the time despite only having 1 processor running @ 1.6GHz and 4GB of RAM.

Any idea on how I can speed up this loading ? Why does it do that ?

Thanks

Does your screen name refer to Jordan Rudess and John Petrucci of the best band in the world, Dream Theater?!? I'm a long time fan since 1993 and pretty much have all the guitar parts memorized. Some bass too.

Anyhow, I've watched the video. You don't have Aero running!

Click the link at the bottom of the personalize screen to troubleshoot Aero. If you have the correct driver for your card installed, it will fix it. If not, install latest video card driver. As you're using it now under this condition, it looks like Windows 95 or something heh heh.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Hello all,

I am kindly requesting help from anyone who is familiar with Windows XP. I have a Dell Dimension E520 series Desktop computer. Here is what I did:

-installed 2 GB of memory into the system
-installed a graphics video card
-installed a DVD burner (with SATA)

Now, when I press the power button to turn the computer on, a black screen comes up and reads:

"This Version only supports CD-ROM or Hard Drive"

So I am guessing I have to go into BIOS to change something but am not sure. Also, the screen gives me the option to press F1/F2 for setup but when I press it on my keyboard (wireless) nothing happens.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks!

The message " This version supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives " , is the rest of that message "Please wait. This will take few seconds. " If it is, this message shows while the ICH is doing drive discovery, and checking whether any drives are assigned to RAID pairs; this is normal.

A:Personalize & Screen Resolution error. Windows cannot find

Hello Boey, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Let's start with using OPTION TWO in both of the tutorials below to add "Screen resolution" and "Personalize" to your desktop context menu. These will also restore the default registry entries for these two items that will hopefully sort this for you.

Screen Resolution - Add or Remove from Desktop Context Menu - Windows 7 Help Forums

Personalize - Add or Remove from Desktop Context Menu - Windows 7 Help Forums

If not, then you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo and fix it.

Hope this helps for now,

This is apparently exactly the the same problem as the old WinXP issue relating to quot normal fonts DPI quot vs quot large fonts DPI quot except that Microsoft now refers to it as quot medium quot in the Personalize - gt Display font size customization dialog The problem is that if the application has drawn its window to be FIXED-SIZE as opposed to re-sizable using the lower-right-corner quot pull quot control and does not also provide scroll-bars in case the fixed window size is too small to show everything when customizing font size to be larger than Windows apparently only grows the windows size 125%: wrong Personalize->font drawn HORIZONTAL size of the window but does not also grow the window in the VERTICAL dimension The result is often to simply chop off the lower content of a window Personalize->font size 125%: windows drawn wrong as intended to be drawn by the application I have just run into this with a Sirius Player Internet Radio application named Stream ON Here is the player window at font size showing everything it should And here is the same player window at font size Note the loss of the entire lower portion of the expected content and application controls In fact the window is x whereas the window is x Sure the application has drawn the window as FIXED and non-resizable But if Win is going to widen the window by why doesn't it also increase the vertical size of the window by Seems like the blame should be shared both by the application developer for writing an app that is not DPI-aware and also for Microsoft for not growing the window quot overall by in both directions quot Again this is not a problem new or unique to Win as it's been around for at least years in both Win as well as WinXP both of which supported quot large fonts DPI quot customization Very annoying to see this carried forward into Win as well Win Pro X ATI HD Catalyst

It simply displays a dark/black screen with my cursor only. I have to keep forcing a shutdown and rebooting hoping my desktop will load. Meaning once it gets to my user account screen and I put in my password, it attempts to load me into the desktop screen but I end up with my cursor and a blank screen. But in safemode, the desktop loads alright. Any suggestions please?

looks like the user profile settings are amiss. I would first try a system restore to see if you can get it back to operating normally. Click start, go to accessories; then to system tools; then to system restore and see what the most recent restore point is before this started happening and i would tell it to restore back to that point. (i hope im on the right path here with this answer)

I did an Automatic Windows Update, restarted, and my Desktop was black, all my shortcuts were gone, the windows and toolbar were from Windows 98, and I could not access any programs or files.

I restarted again, and now my desktop is back with all my files and programs, I can use the internet, but I cannot change the toolbar or windows back to Aero.

I tried to troubleshoot and I attached the screenshot below.

Something like this happened to me before with the update. I wish they would stop screwing me over with this bs.

Please help.

A:Windows update screwed up my desktop, Windows 98 toolbar

Something is wrong if you are getting burned with updates. Never once in my life did I or other people I know get burned by a Microsoft update like this, and I used windows me. Not saying it cannot happen, its just I suspect something else is wrong with your computer.

So lets find out whats going on here. Most people that have problems with windows is mostly caused due to poorly written programs by 3rd parties.

1.) What programs do you have running at startup?
2.)You may have programs running at startup that is causing this issue. Please see this tutorial to temporary disable them and see if the issue is resolved:

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

3.) What security software do you use?

4.) Download the latest video driver for your laptop from here:

http://global-download.acer.com/GDFi...C=ACER&SC=PA_6

5.) Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back the results.
Please indicate what message was displayed at the end:

Windows found no integrity violations

OR

Corrupt files were found, and windows was unable to fix them.

OR

Corrupt files were found, and windows successfully repaired them

6.) You can do a System Restore back to a point before this issue. But this is only a quick fix, we would need to find the real cause.
Any questions just ask

For over a week, when I start my laptop, it seems to start normally, then I get a screen that says "updates could not load and changes are being undone, don't turn off my computer'.  Does anyone know what is going on?  I am using Windows 8.1.
 
I have Panda Security, and Anti Super Spyware, both paid for.  I just got rid of Win Patrol free, although I have used it on my old laptop without problems.  I have not purchased or downloaded any other programs.
 
Any ideas how I can find out what is going on?

A:Windows update won't load.

I'm just offering some advice. I'm not a Computer expert, just so you know
 
I had this issue on 2 different PCs, both with Windows 8.1.
It would force me into updates, and then say that the updates were unsuccessful and that it is undoing the changes.
It stayed in a restart loop of 'undoing changes' until I went into Safe Mode (using Shift + F8) and did a System Restore.
I have now changed the settings on BOTH computers to not automatically install update. I don't need that kind of trouble! LOL

Not quite certain where to place this.

sometimes in the past 7-10 days when I go to change my computer's desktop background picture, I see only the Irfanview icon, not the picture.

I haven't updated Irfanview, I have the latest version.

No updates to my computer until today, so it couldn't be that.

Windows Explorer is set to Large Icons. I changed it to all the available sizes, still no picture, just the icon.

Just to make sure the pictures weren't refreshing. I found a folder with just 3 pngs. I did all of the icon sizes, no picture thumbnail shows.

What could be wrong and how do I fix it ?

Thank you.

A:Windows Search Deskbar is unable to load its config file.

Apparently the UPDATE causes lots of issues.

The best recommendation I have come across is to try an uninstall of the latest version and see if you get back to the old one OK.

Any ideas how to resolve this? This started happening all of a sudden today and till yesterday it was working fine!!! Not sure even if i try to run some utility...how i would do it since nothing's working!!

Hi all

I am having a persistent problem with Windows 10 that I need help with

Just about every computer start takes two attempts to complete, the first start fails to load any desktop icons and just sits there with a spinning progress icon and nothing can be started. I have to do a Control/Alt/delete and select restart, which it does and then that time it all starts ok with no other issues all day long.

Anyone know how to fix this.

Thanks for any help

The computer is an HP Pavilion 724C with Windows xp Home edition, and McAfee Security (from Comcast).
When I start the PC, Windows starts as usual and gets to the choose User screen okay, but after the welcome screen (loading your Personal settings), the desktop background appears but no Icons or Start button or taskbar.

I'm unsure of what I did to cause this problem and I'm not very savvy on computers but you folks helped me out a while ago with a spyware problem, so I thought I'd try again before I give up and call HP or Microsoft.

Any and all help will be much appreciated

A:windows desktop doesnt load at start up

It's posssible that you could have a corrupt user profile.
Try this:
Boot into safe mode OR if you have more than one user account, try another desktop.
Start Menu/All Programs/Accessories.
System Tools/System Restore.
Choose a restore point just prior to when the issue began.

Your system will reboot, only after rebooting and getting on a desktop will you find out if the restore is successful.

I'm having a problem with Windows Update. When I go to access the update site, it says done but with errors on page. Nothing shows up at all, just a blank screen. I have a feeling it has something to do with all the changes I had to make to get rid of lots of spyware/malware. If anyone could offer some thoughts and possible solutions, I'd really appreciate it. I haven't been able to update Windows in quite a while.

I'm running XP Pro. If any other information is needed, please let me know. Thanks to all who help in advance.

My partner has a Dell Studio 1535 laptop. She just downloaded the latest Windows update. When she restarted the computer it took her to a black screen with a single line of white text indicating that various files were installing. It suddenly stopped at 430 of 49073 files with a message "!! 0xc0190036 !! 430/49073 (mfc42u.dll)" The computer is just hanging. If I power it off and restart it gives the option of a startup repair or to start normally. Starting normally leads to the hanging message; a startup repair fails to identify the issue, other than suggesting maybe a device has recently been attached. This is not the case.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I have Windows Vista Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 and the Windows update page will not load. No error messages it will not load. Any Microsoft help or support that leads to anything connected with Windows update will not load. I thought I was getting auto updates, but I am missing 8 important to critical updates.

A:Windows update page will not load.

I was in your situation with Vista 32 for 3 months. First thing is to scan for malicious software/rootkits that may have turned off update. If you are confident that is not the cause, then you will need to rename the SoftwareDistribution folder in the Windows directory, something like SoftwareDistributionOld. You may have to first turnoff update in the Services (Administrative Tools) to do this. Reboot, and Update will recreate your SoftwareDistribution folder and you "may" then be able to update. Otherwise, like in my situation, you have a lot of heartache and google searching to do. I had to run a bits.reg routine to fix my bits (background Intelligent Transfer Services) in my registry; then I had to reregister a boatload of dll's. TurboTax 2008 had poorly installed and corrupted a number of files and registry entries.

Good luck.....

The down load works, but I get an error that indicates none of the updates can be installed. I am currently missing 70 updates. I have tried to load one at a time in the event I did not reserve enough disk space, but I still get the same results. Do you have any ideas how this can be fixed.

Try to restore your computer before the updates were downloaded using system restore. You can then download them again.

Hello, I just rebuilt my PC and installed XP SP3, IE 8, and FF 3.6. Automatic updates are working (i.e. updates are downloaded and installed). However, I cannot get to the Windows Update webpage on this machine (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/). I've read forums that say this is due to a firewall issue, but I disabled my firewall and still cannot access the page. I have not setup any other special network rules/restrictions. I can access other webpages without problems. It could be a virus I suppose but I just rebuilt the system, so that makes me somewhat skeptical. Any thoughts? Thanks everyone!

Have tried to locate these folders on my computer but haven't found them yet and do not know where to look.
Any advice welcome.

Hmm...

I've been trying to find some lost photos, but I can't. Windows Desktop Search won't work!

When I click on that icon in Start > All Programs > Windows Search, the search window appears, but there is a message near the top.

"Windows Search isn't running. To start it, click on the Start Menu, point to 'All Programs', and then click Windows Search"

I did that, but nothing happened.

Can't you go to search the normal way? Start>search.

Just a suggestion. Why not download a real search engine. THis thing
is unbelievable searches in real time. By the time you type your search item
it is there for you. FREE

Where on the desktop is the Search the Web and Windows box? I saw a reference to it, but I can't find it? Inspiron 7000 Series, Windows 10 Home

You can use Cortana to search the web. You can also right click the Start's button at the left bottom of the page. You'll see the search option.

I have the same problem. The loading of programs into the system tray 'pauses' for 1-2 minutes before everything continues normally. During the pause other programs can be run from the desktop but nothing can be accessed via the taskbar or system tray (hourglass icon appears when cursor is over sys tray & taskbar). This has only started in the last week. I have removed all programs i have installed after the problem started but it has made no difference. The PC has XP sp2.
Most times it pauses with Norton AV loaded but disabled (red cross) but this is not always the case. And NAV is always enabled when the pause ends.

Hi bax and welcome to TSG,

I have split your post off into a thread of its own. It's not a good idea to tack onto an existing post as you may get overlooked.

Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This.

It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

Hi there, this has only started recently and i am unsure why.

After i login (which happens automatically) Windows XP loads the sound deelie, and the desktop and then appears that the startbar / explorer freezes for a long period of time.

At this stage i only have 18 processes running, which is 10 or so less than i usually do ^^;;

After a 2 or so minute wait everything just comes out of it's coma and starts running fine.
This is incredibly annoying, and if anyone has any solutions, please let me know!!

Cheers. Thanks for your help.

I have an HP compact Laptop with WIndows Vista that won't load the desktop....I just get a "please wait" and nothing ever happens. I can't get into the Task Manager "control>alt>delete" doesn't work. I used a Vista CD to try to repair. It told me that there are no problems with start up. I tried doing a system restore, but that didn't seem to work. Help!!

If you have a post in either of the malware sections...that's where you need to continue...rather than starting a new thread here in the XP forum.

When I turn my pc on, all I get is a black screen or the windows icon and circle turning like it is loading. Just updated from 7 to 10. Worked good two days. Now this.Anyone have ideas.

A:After upgrade Windows 10 desktop doesn't load correctly

It might be an update that has jammed. On odd occasions discharging the motherboard has unstuck things, like this:Turn off computer and remove power plug. Remove main battery too if it's a laptop. Before trying again hold the Power Off/On button down for at least 20 seconds. It probably won't help but it's quick to try and you might be lucky.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
