Preferred Solution: windows xp log out button wont work

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.)

my start button wont work, i cannot restart my computer and even from the sign on screen the only option i ave it to shut down. my icons are still on the taskbar but i cannot view them and when i open my browsers its deleting my last sessions even when i have them saved to appear each time i open the browser. my time and date is gone as well as any viable option to get to my drivers and computer settings. the only thing ive been able to get to is the actio of using the windows button and pressing r but each seach i get an error message that anything i type cant be found. help!

A:my start button wont work

Just for starters, Hold the windows key down and press the X key. See if you get a menu that should have several options as well as the option to shut down or restart. See if that will work and let me know. If it does, select command prompt (Admin) and copy/paste this into the window. sfc /scannow. If it says errors were found, reboot and run it again. You may have to run it 3 times before getting the 'Windows found no integrity violations', which is what you want it to say. Let me know how it goes, and welcome to Tenforums.

Hi, I have an issue with my HP Pavilion Dv6-6178ca. I have tried some things whitout success and now i need the help of the HP community. The power button sometimes work like once on 50 times (or more).Before the problem started, the error message "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" sometimes appear. I have reinstalled the driver, tested my graphic card and all the others components and nothing appears to be defective exept the board... I think... I have tried to reset cmos and reseat memory, without battery etc.I have also tried without network card, optic drive, hdd and it still not working. I came here to know if a reflow of the graphics chips and the chipset is conceivable. Regards,Guillaume

Hi, I use windows washer occasionally to keep my hdd clean and as empty as possible. I have only 85 gig hdd, so it full most of the time.

I followed instuctions on how to change the name of your start button, or change the text it displays on it rather than 'start'. It envolves changing the explorer exe file to something else and uses some hacker program to help do that along with regedit and so on.

Now Window Washer cannot find anything to scan, it just starts and then no sooner stops with no files washed. I tried adding the new explorer file to the custom wash list but it made no difference. I also wiped it and re installed it but it still finds no files to wash.

Any help?

Thanks in advance,

Cammy

You need to be much more specific about what your problem is. I can't tell at all from your post what's really happening, and neither will anybody else. What exactly happens? What exact messages do you get? What "advanced options" are you talking about? Also, it appears this site's profanity filter has blocked something in your post. Using such language is not helpful.

Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.
I just had the same problems and found out the hard way that it was a hard drive.

Yesterday, I clicked on the windows icon at the bottom of my screen...nothing happened. I clicked on the search web and windows box...would not let me type anything. I can right click the icon and bring up things and I can right click on the search box, and click on show search, and it will let me type in the box. What the heck happened? The Window Key on the keyboard does not work either. I can live with it that way, but wondering WTH happened and can it be fixed. Did I maybe click on something I shouldn't have? I am lost. First time I have EVER had that happen on ANY computer I have ever owned.

A:Windows 8.1 - Upgrade from 8, Start Button Does Not Work

Yes, when the taskbar is at the bottom of the screen, I cannot left click on the start button. The machine is also a
touch-screen, which does work when I touch the start button.

Sounds like my problem with right-click on that object with my pen.  The only way I can make the pen do a right-click there is by filtering it through a Magnifier Lens (e.g. Win-+, Ctrl-Alt-L) moved there using the Touch Magnifier.  My real mouse
has no trouble there, just my pen...  WTH?  Now it's working?  Oh.  Just remembered.  I have Multi-touch driver disabled ATM.   Leaves pen working but not touch.  I didn't realize that as a result the pen was now working
better than it had.  So no need to use Touch Magnifier any more.  In fact, now it seems more difficult to use the Start button right-click menu with the Touch Magnifier overlaying it.  YMMV.  What would we do if an OS didn't have its quirks
to learn?   <eg>

A:windows 7 back button doesn't work

Hi mmadyda and welcome,
 
can you tell us what browser you are using when this happens ? Or does the problem exist with all browsers.
 
What 3rd party toolbars have you got loaded? Google, Yahoo? Anything else?
 
The only time the back button doesn't seem to work is when there is an intermediate redirection page, so when you click back you are returned to
the URL that redirects to the page you were on again. If you use the little drop down arrow next to the buttons you can skip back 2 pages to work around this.
 
Hope this solves your issue

I installed an Windows Pro 8 to 8.1 Pro x64 on a desktop computer. Both were clean installations, no other software was installed. With Window 8.1 Pro, the start button worked for a day after all the updates, then booted the computer. Now, if I try to right
click on the Start button with the mouse; nothing happens. Thinking it was a virus, I used Windows Defender to search to the for a virus and nothing found. No other Windows updates to fix the problem! To me it just another glitch in Windows!

I updated a laptop at the same time with Windows 8 to 8.1 X64, not the Pro version. The laptop was a OEM version of Windows 8. The laptop works fine with Windows 8.1 after upgrading it.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X41 tablet PC running Windows XP Professional. Yesterday I went to click on my Start button to shut down and it was non-responsive. No menus would open. I had to shut down via Ctrl Alt Del.

Today the Start button worked but in when I clicked on Shut Down, nothing happened. I had to again shut down via Ctrl Alt Del. This occurred 3 times.

I run Kasperksy Internet Security 7 and recently ran a Registry Mechanic scan, and believe my system to be free of adware, spyware, etc.

Any thoughts on how I might counteract this odd behavior would be greatly appreciated.

Bill

A:Windows XP Start button doesn't work

How long are you waiting after you click "shut down" before using ctrl+alt+del? Sometimes programs will be non responsive when Windows tries to shut them down and the system will stall for a bit. You might try typing "msconfig" in the run console and unchecking some of the programs that start up with your computer. I have a feeling you will find that there are allot that are active.

So you can't even go to settings? Even a restart doesn't do anything?

I have a network drive, which I set up to save a copy of a folder for offline use using the instructions here:
Working with network files when you are offline - Windows Help

I am not able to find any option for setting the drive to work online or work offline. I did manage to set it up to work offline yesterday, but forgot how. Now, I cannot find any work online or work offline button. Is it in a different place in 10?

A:work offline / work online button with network location

Reading the net, it appears that this is a pretty buggy implementation of working with network files offline. I was able to effectively use the offline files feature on another win10 machine. When I unplugged the ethernet cable, I could work with the offline files, and then when I plugged it back in, the computer went online and I synced the files. Back on the original machine, I turned off the 'enable offline files' option, rebooted, turned on the 'enable offline files' button, and rebooted. After this, the machine was still working offline. It said that the user had chosen to work offline (which was true at an earlier point). But there is no option anywhere to work online.

I followed the instructions to reinitialize the offline files cache as described here: How To Reinitialize The Offline Cache in Windows 7 . I found it elsewhere, and the general instructions are repeated on the internet in various places. This enabled the laptop to use the cached files online again. However, I still cannot manually get into and out of the 'work offline' mode. If anybody has any ideas, I would be grateful. If there is a registry value that would put things into and out of the 'work offline' mode, I could at least write a batch file to do this.

Hi,

Im trying to share my intenet from my PC to my PS3.
I have it hooked up with a crossover cable and all the settings set up how I think they need to be:

The connection I'm sharing:

The LAN connection to the PS3:

Those are the IPV4 settings.

The network status says there is Internet Access (IPV4) but when I do a connection test on the PS3 it just fails.
If you need any more information, just tell me. Thanks!

Disable ICS; change the ethernet connection to 'obtain IP auto' and 'obtain DNS auto'; enable ICS. That should set things properly. I don't know how it got so messed up, but those three steps should clear it up.

Hi lilnana and welcome to TSF.

It could well be a corrupt user profile, but before we have to go through creating a new one and copying over the programs as well, lets try a few things.

1] Have you tried re-booting after you installed the extra gadgets?
2] What anti-virus do you have running? Have you tried disabling it?
3] The gadgets that you downloaded from the MS site, were they made for Vista or Windows 7?
4] Were the gadget you installed made for a 32bit OS or a 64bit OS? (What are you running?
5] Have you tried removing one-by-one the newest gadgets to see which one is causing an issue?

Can you give us a direct link to the gadget (a link for each one) that you downloaded.

You are connecting via VGA? If your connectors permit, connect via DVI. My monitor also has HDMI. but won't work via a DVI-HDMI cable. I guess that is only for a video card that has an HDMI output. Another possibility is S-Video, if both the video card and HDTV are equipped with it.

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or Thumb drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable and do the following:

I have a windows 8 computer and I have been having problems connecting to the internet. I have been searching for ways to fix the problem but I have not been able to find any solution. Basicly what is happening is I connect to the wifi and it says I am connected, after that I try to open google but it does not work it says that I am not connected to the internet. Also something weird is I can connect to skype fine, I can log in and talk to my friends and so on.
(I have tried doing ipconfig /release and stuff like that)
Please help me fix this problem

When i log into my windows xp pro a message pops up saying that windows has recovered from a serious error so i click close because there is nothing else i can do with that window...but it keeps popping up when i close it and within atleast 5-10mins it will log me off and shut down.

It doesn't completely shut down though it goes to some blue screen saying Windows has shut down to keep your computer from being harmed or from losing memory something like that i cant really remember. On the bottom of that message theres is 2 paragraphs. Can anyone help me with this problem ?

A:Windows Wont Work Properly

Try disabling the automatically restart on system failure feature. Then you are able to read what messages appear on the blue screen and post that back here for some one to lol at.
Click Start Button

On the Start Menu click Control Panel

When the Control Panel window opens click on the System icon

The system properties window opens

Click the Advanced tab

In the Advanced tab window locate the Start and Recovery section and press the Settings button

When the settings window opens look for the System failure section

Remove the check mark from the Automatically Restart option

Click OK to Exit

So I'd like to reserve windows 10 for myself, but the upgrade windows 10 button down on the taskbar wont open. It wasn't even showing up before I ran the "win10fix_full.bat" file. Now it does, but it just opens for less than a second and then closes without giving me the chance to do anything. Any ideas?

A:Windows wont work after using windows 7 home phone activation

What makes you think it is the activation? Did you go click on "Start Button", right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties"? When the screen comes up scroll down to the right bottom of the screen and you should see a "Genuine Windows Logo". If it says something different then there is an activation problem.

I have just received an HP 620 compaq laptop with Windows 7 pro on. I dont know very much about anything techy and I want to find a free anti virus thats works on Windows 7 pro.

I have used AVG free download before so decided to go with that, but for some reason I cant get it to download, infact for some reason I cant even get the page to load. So I went with the trial version while I sort it out.

Once loaded I then tried to open IE and it just wont open, so I have had to uninstall AVG and now it works ok, but I have no anti virus.

Does anyone have any suggestions of another free anti virus that works on Windows 7 pro?

Many thanks

I dont know how it happened. I was listening to some music on it, when my computer suddenly froze for an unknown reason. When i restarted my computer, i found that my media player didnt work anymore. i click on it and it pops up, but nothing appears in the main menu thingy. then, i hear a 4-click sound coming from my cpu. when i try to click out of the program, it takes forever, then says "program not responding, etc.". I click "End Now" and wait several minutes for it to close. While this is happening, all my other programs work with ease, while windows media player does nothing but wait to close.

Ok heres the deal:

I decided to watch a small video clip on the internet. I went to the website, clicked on the clip and Windows media player started. After a few minutes, an error message popped up saying "error downloading codec". I searched the website and found that this video was encoded using Divx. I went to the website(www.divx.com) and downloaded the codec and the divx player. After the installation, I cant open Windows Media player, I double click on the menu icon and the desktop icon and nothing happens. The computer does not freeze, but WMP wont open . I'm using WMP 10 and Windows XP/
Do I have to reinstall WMP, or is there an easy way out?

Help!

Thanks

I would just uninstall and reinstall WMP and see if that works. Try downloading WMP 10 straight from Microsoft for the reinstall. Just in case your downloas for WMP 10 got corrupted. Shouldn't take too long.

Basically my keyboard works when it starts. I can press F8 or Esc to go into the windows startup menu. However when (even in safe mode) it starts up it asks for Ctrl+Alt+Del. Here my keyboard is non responsive. I've had this issue before and used to solve it with windows restore settings to a previous date through safe mode, however this time i can't get into safe mode because clever windows felt like making it so secure.
Also the option of going back to previously good settings after pressing F8 desnt help. I've tried all sorts of boot disks made on my other computer but nothing seems to get it to that BIOS screen. As i said the buttons work before windows starts up just i cant do anything useful with them. Oh and i dont have an XP Pro CD either... would that help? how do i restore mysetings to a previous date?

Do you have the "Stereo Mix" set as the default Recording Device? If some other device, such as an internal mic is set as default no other device can be used in most systems. Setting the Default Recording Device as Stereo Mix then any recording device will be heard.

Firstly I cannot imagine not defraging for that long a period, a couple of months maybe.  Seeing that you can access some areas and not others my guess is your system has a bug.  Can you run your security software?

I request you to boot the PC to BIOS and test the touchscreen in BIOS. To boot the PC to BIOS, first turn off the PC completely. Keep tapping ESC on startup. You would get a startup menuPress F10 to get into BIOS. do not keep the PC in mute. Touch the screen in BIOS, the PC should beep.  If the PC beeps in BIOS (system utility), the touch screen is fine and you are facing a driver or a software issue. If the PC does not beep in BIOS, when you touch the screen, there is a issue with the display/touchscreen. Considered as a hardware issue (service or display replacment might be required). Please share the product number of your PC. This will help get the specification of your PC and I can give further suggestions.  ****Click the White thumb to say thanks********Please mark Accept As Solution if it solves your problem****

A:Windows xp sound event wont work

I am having this exact problem as well. Anyone have any ideas? It only occurs with windows sound events only. All the other sounds generated by applications and games sound fine.

I created another user profile and the other profiles system sound events work just fine. Only my main system profile's sound events are not working.

Latest patched (windows update) version of XP running on a AMD ASUS a7v combo with 256m ram and SB Live 5.1 sound.

One day it was working and the next it was not. Of course I installed a couple programs which I am sure messed it up. Un-installing them did not help. Seems to be isolated in the user profile somewhere.

Thanks
