Turn Windows Features On and Off Question

Q: Turn Windows Features On and Off Question

Hello all, I'm new to Seven Forums and I have a question. I have been trying to install .net ver.4, but the error says it is installed but not turned on. So I google turn on .net 4 and I get to turn Windows features On and Off. Which brings me back to an issue I noticed. Every time I see screen shots of the features screen, it is a long list of many features, but mine is almost bare:



Mind this is an OEM version installed by my system builder, but I'm wondering where are all my options?



I have disabled some services per the Black Viper list, but I can't think that would remove any or all of the missing items? Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Turn Windows Features On and Off Question

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.)

I am having an issue where the windows features under Internet Information Services/World Wide Web Services/Application Development Features will not install.  Specifically those which are clicked on when one clicks on ASP.NET.  All necessary versions
of ASP.NET are installed.  IIS 7 is installed.
In the Event Log there are two errors which are shown in conjunction with this problem.
1. Unable to install counter strings because the SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ASP.NET_64\Performance key could not be opened or accessed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the Win32 error code.
The error code is: 020000000E0E0000
2. Installing the performance counter strings for service ASP.NET_64 (ASP.NET_64) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.
The error code is: 02000000C9120000
I am thinking that the performace key is somehow not accessable due to some security feature.

A:Turn Windows Features on or off Application Development Features

Andre,
I appreciate the replies, but it has nothing to do with running as administrator.
I solved the problem by turning IIS off all together and reinstalling it with the features I needed.

Hello,

I will go straight to the point here guys,

I need WMP and I have installed Windows 10 Pro N recently (since my university gives free keys)
I went to the windows download section in the website and downloaded the Media features Pack!

The problem is, after I installed it I went to "turn windows features off and on" to check it and play music in my wmp
and it was not there! There is no "Media Features" option like it is supposed to have. I tryed:

Reinstalling, did not work because windows said it was there already
Rebooting, nothing changed,
Running wmp Fix,
Ran SFc /scannow, nothing was found

I would really appreciate if someone really good came and said that I missed something really simple.

Thank you.

WMP (Windows Media Player) is available by default in Windows 10:
All apps/Windows Accessories
Are you, perhaps, referring to Windows Media Center?

When I navigate to Start>Control Panel>Uninstall a Program>Turn Windows Features On or Off

I cannot turn off any Windows features including: Tablet PC Optional Components, Windows Fax and Scan, Windows Meeting Space, Etc.

Instead, When I uncheck one of these features and click ok I get "Please wait while the features are configured" for about 15-20 secs. Then I receive an error message reading:"an error has occurred. not all of the features were successfully changed"

I have Windows Vista Ultimate. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I have searched everywhere for a solution to this problem and have found no solutions yet!

Which features are you trying to turn off or disable or turn on/enable? On some things you might have to change a registry value from "1" to "0" or delete/rename an entry if it's not one seeing the disable, manual, automatic settings available.

A:Turn Windows Features On Or Off

Each person is different, and your needs with your computer are different - so this is just what I do on my system and may not be appropriate for yours.

I uncheck:
Games
Indexing Service
Remote Differential Compression
Tablet PC Optional Components
Windows Meeting Space

But I haven't made a great study of this - so it may be to your advantage to research each issue before turning them off (for example, if you've got a Tablet PC - then the Tablet PC components may be nice to have).

On windows 8 I am unable to enable and Windows features. Some appear to install correctly, i.e. Hyper-V, but on restart it is still not installed or checked in "Windows Features".

I'd really like to install IIS 8.0, but even "Common HTTP Features" fails with the unhelpful message "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes", "Windows requires a reboot to return the system to its original state".

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi srcomsec,  is there a way other than the control panel -- programs-- turn on and off method.I'm sure there is though it would only be a shortcut to the same destination which would result in failure as well.Is this the same Vista computer as you posted a topic for found here?If so, it sounds as if you have major registry corruption and the only possible cure is to either find someone with a Vista installation disc to perform a repair install or restore the computer back to factory condition.Possibility that another member knows something that I don't, so please stay tuned....Donna

hey , i have windows 7 proffesional 64 bit , im trying to install net framework 3.5 and it tells me to turn windows features on or off.... so i go to control panel and unchecking the tick where it says Microsoft NET . Framework 3.5.1 ... as i untick that and click OK it says that its changes it and it takes around 2-3 minutes...
THE PROBLEM IS that after that time it says ''An error has occurred. not all of the features were successfully changed'' ... WHAT SHOULD I DO !?!?! i tried disabling UAC and on i tried uninstalling NET.Framework 4.0 and installing it again BUT NOTHING HELP ! please im desperate
thank you.

That's fishy. Is it telling you to turn .NET Framework 3.5 off in there? Or is it just generically saying "Turn Windows Features On or Off"?

Hey its The Unofficial here with yet another problem. Whenever I click on "Turn Windows Features On or Off" I get this error message. I know that .Ink is a shortcut, so obviously Windows is missing a needed shortcut for Server Manager. However, there is no application "Server Manager" to shortcut too. If so, I would have already made one in Administrative Tools and everything would be bright and cheery again.

Help is appreciated as always,

I am getting this message every time I try to turn off a feature, "An error has occurred. not all of the features were successfully changed."

I was able to turn off some features about a month ago, but now it won't let me. It doesn't matter which feature I try to turn off. For ex. I tried turning off DVD Maker, XPS, Gadget platform, etc. SFC comes up clean.

A:Windows 7 Features Turn On/Off Issues

I know you said you ran SFC but I'd run it again from an elevated command prompt (option two.) Even if problems aren't found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also check for malware by running full scans with your installed anti-virus suite and then run a couple of on-demand scans with Malwarebytes and ESET Online Scanner.

its most likely just system restore creating restore points everytime you make a change

what did you "uncheck" you know you can delete all but the most recent restore point if you want

edit............oh i see you have system restore off! your better off leaving that on and limiting the ammount of space it uses

in that case ive no idea whats causing your disk usage , again what did you uncheck?

Hello SoHacked, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You might see if using the Microsoft KB article below for Vista and Windows for this same issue will work for you in Windows 8 as well. The steps are the same in Windows 8, and should still apply.

You receive error code "0x80073712" or the "Windows Features" dialog box is empty when you try to install updates or components in Windows 7 or in Windows Vista
Hope this helps,

I see where one of the performance enhancements recommended is to disable unneeded "Features" in the Program & Features section of Control Panel. The impact of disabling some of the features is obvious, but in some cases it's not so obvious whether I need to leave a feature installed or not based on how I use my system and the applications that I have installed (for example, Microsoft.NET Framework, Remote Differential Compression, etc.). I have tried searching for a description of each "Feature" and how to determine whether it might be needed or not, but have been unable to locate a good discussion or description of each "Feature". Can anyone direct me to a source of this info. Thanks.

Hello Christo, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if this can help you.

The "Windows Features" dialog box is empty in Windows Vista, or you receive an error message that includes the following code when you try to use Windows Update: "0x80073712"

Hope this helps,

I go to Control Panel x Program Features and then select "Turn On/Off Windows features" where the screen loads for a few seconds and then comes up empty!

I've been led to believe that the dreadfully slooooow copying in Vista is caused by something called "Remote Differential Compression" that can be remedied by turning this feature Off!

Wonder where it is?

Hi all,

really stumped on this one

device is a windows 10 surface tablet (LTSB), that was working fine on a domain. Linked to a WSUS, and has sccm installed.

I went into windows turn windows features on and off and enabled asp.net 4.5 or was it 4.6 and rebooted, now powershell does not work, certain application that require .net do not load. It complaining that .net is not installed, and when I try installing .net 3.5 and even 4.6 it says its already installed but turned off in windows features.

its happened twice now, the first time was when trying to install visual studio community. I got the tablet wiped/reimaged and put back on the corporate network. and Its happened again.

Can't even load gpedit, well it loads but then complains about mmc snap in when going into configuration

any suggestion? i've done all the dism, sfc/scannow stuff. it came up with corruption but thats all repaired now

I have Windows 7 Prof x64.

My question is, when displaing all software installed and choosing more columns of information to display, they don't stay. For example, choosing Location column. Getting out of the installed programs list and then returning to it, the Location column is gone.

Is there some what to get the columns to be persistent?

Thanks in advance.

A:Question about Windows 7 Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

The Programs and Features listing is shown to you by the Explorer app. Each time that you open/close the Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a folder (or a special view/list like the Programs and Features listing), Explorer tries to write info to the registry about how Explorer was showing you that folder. Windows (file) Explorer tries to write this "how to display a folder" info at other times besides just closing an Explorer window, but I'll not go into all of that.

Microsoft has not solved the problem that happens when these places in the registry get too big. When this happens, you may see the problem that you are experiencing - that of no longer being able to store the layout/view/column width/column selection/... info in the registry.

Below is video that I made showing registry keys being made. (I'm not suggesting that you mess with the registry.) Notice that new keys are made when visiting the folder named Temp. Deleting this Temp folder does not remove those registry keys. If you close Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a compressed folder (a ZIP file), the Explorer app tries to make keys so that it can remember how it last showed you that folder. If you delete or move that ZIP folder to another location, the original registry keys remain. So you can see how this area of the registry can fill up.

edit: I had to make this video again. I hope that I covered all of the original points.

One solution is to remove all of the entries/keys in the areas of the registry that attempt to track this info for the Explorer app... then rebuild them over time as you visit various folders (and special views like the Programs and Features listing). You can safely remove the entries by following the steps detailed in this tutorial: Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

I opt for a more draconian solution: I change the permissions on those registry keys to prevent any app from being able to add entries in those areas; thus, the areas never get too big. But changing the permissions will cause other problems that I just live with.

I do not want to reinstall Windows on it, so I would rather use the Add Features feature. So my question is, does Add Features take retail keys or do I need to use a key specifically made for it?

A:How to turn windows firewall off? I can't click the Turn Windows Firew

This may have been disabled on your computer, particularly if you are in a Domain (e.g.: at work, in a library, etc).

However assuming that you have Administrator rights to your computer you should be able to turn it on and off by going to Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Turn Windows Firewall on or off.

If you cannot turn the Firewall off through the above approach try the following Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

Looks for the 'Windows Firewall' Service, double click it, then click on 'Stop'.

From within the Service properties you can also stop the Firewall from starting with Windows, etc.

2.Native Miracast Wireless Display
 
3.Broadband Tethering (Hotspot)
 
4.Start Button
 
5.Metro App Resolution compatibility.

A:what are the features should be in windows 8.1?

Here's one. The ADVANCED SCREEN PROPERTIES window, as existed since Win95-B.

 
This screen allows all Screen Objects to be re-colored according to the User's Demands/Desires.  Historically, this screen has written to umpteen registry entries.
 
Those registry entries still exist in Win8, but this screen does not, so there's no easy access to someone changing the Color Bar or Scroll Bar's color.
 
Of course, the Start Menu folder structure still exists, too, but again, Ballmer's wisdom excludes User Customization from any of these individualized UI options.  "You must use a Theme!  We can sell you themes!  We can't let users decide for themselves without squeezing more money from them!!"  - Steve Ballmer.

Thanks in advance,



As far as I can tell, the "Programs and Features" list is hard coded, depending on which version of Vista you have.

Is there any particular reason you need to know in which "folder" it is stored?

Wife updated Norton twice and had two Norton Firewalls and Windows Firewalls running together. Paid twice for the 2 updates. Removed Norton Completely and then re-installed Norton 360 Security Version 5, but am still unable to turn off Windows Firewall under Windows XP Pro and also cannot turn on Automatic updates, getting message "we're Sorry, the Security Center could NOT change your Automatic Windows Update setting. To try changing these settings, go to SYSTEM in Control Panel. On the Automatic Updates Tab, select AUTOMATIC (recommended) and then click OK. None of this works, then tried using an app to reset Security Settings and that didn't work either. Any suggestions on what I try next. I would like to reinstall Norton 360 Internet Security Version 5, I know there are those out there that hate Norton and the overhead that comes with it, but over the years I've gotten used to it and I like it very much. Thank you, PhotoRay

This is driving me crazy. My HP has Windows 7 and everytime it connects to the internet (wireless connection) Windows Live Messenger opens down in the left hand corner taskbar near the start menu. I close it, and fifteen minutes later it will open again.
I opened the options and unchecked the boxes pretaining to 'Run Windows Live Messenger when windows starts' but it still repeatedly opens. I use hotmail, but i really have no use for Messenger. The program is not listed under add/remove programs. Someone please help me turn this thing off.
 

A:Solved: Windows Live Messenger-TURN IT OFF TURN IT OFF!

It should be listed in Programs & Features under Windows Live Messenger or Windows Live Essentials. If you still can't find it listed then go to get.live.com and re-download the installer, reinstall it, then uninstall it.

Top 10 Hidden Windows 10 Features

Many of Windows 10?s key features have been talked about at length, but the operating system actually comes with a lot of great features that aren?t as immediately obvious to everyday users and even enthusiasts.

Hello, i've posted this in the Windows 7/Vista section as there doesn't seem to be a Windows 8 section yet. I've got a Windows 8 Media Center Pack product key, and the email from Microsoft says to use "Add Features". But it's not there. I've got Windows 8 Pro N, i've searched "add features" but there's nothing found, I've pressed CTRL + X and selected System, but there's nothing about adding any features. How can I open Add Features?

Hi There
This is about W10 Mail that I now have in the newly 'clean installed' Windows 10 in my Laptop that recently crashed with File explorer.

The issue is that this does not have the usual features my other 2 PCs show up in the Settings, for example, Personalisation. All I can see are these: Accounts, Background Picture, Reading, Options, Help, Trust Center etc. Why and how does this happen? Background
Picture is never seen before. Please can someone guide me to understand how I can get the 'personalisation' into it or get all right as it should not be in anyway different from PC to PC. Thanks.

I have done some extensive web searches and research through several sources specifically trying to find some concrete answers pertaining to features new SPECIFICALLY to Windows 7 that have not been present >XP.
Not really looking for a reference novel, just potentially some ideas on directions to focus on.
Maybe some of your favorite features that are Windows 7 born?

Thanks for all your help in advance!

A:New features strictly new to Windows 7

If you've done extensive research, you'd easily have them in front of you. If you had to give someone a good reason(s) to use Windows 7, I'd tell them it is newer technology that is faster and more secure, that makes better use of your available hardware. It's more stable and reliable, and all current hardware and software, including drivers, is designed to work with it, as opposed to a decade plus old operating system.

Hello,

Just recently, all of my Windows 8 programs are not working, it won't run. Programs such as in the picture below are not working, music, Skype, Camera, Mail, People, Messaging, Calendar, Finance, Weather, Maps, OneDrive, etc. Usually when I hit function key and camera key, the Camera will show up but now it won't show.

Also, there is this pop up message when I try to open music with Windows 8 Music player, as shown on the picture.

It says, invalid value for registry. But I can still open musics and videos with iTunes and VLC though. Just the Music player and Video player built-in on Windows 8 is not working.

First of all I really love the Windows 8.1 experience. Opening up my computer straight to the desktop sure beats having to go through the Metro screen first. But... I really miss the Godmode {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. I loved how the Godmode worked in Windows 8, but it just does not seem to work at all in Windows 8.1. Also, the Windows Experience Index, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-is-windows-experience-index#What-is-windows-experience-index=windows-8. I really liked this feature, I see that there is a way to access this feature in Windows 8.1, (http://www.cnet.com/how-to/find-your-windows-experience-index-scores-in-windows-8-1/) but I just can not seem to get that to work for me. These are a couple of features that I really miss.

A:Some Features I Miss In Windows 8.1

What features from the Godmode are missing between Windows 8 and Windows 8.1? Also, the Windows Experience Index has been removed since Windows 7 and it's a good thing if you ask me, now it's always refreshing when it needs to and Windows doesn't depend on it for some graphical features like Aero. Way easier to troubleshoot graphic issues now with that.

it depends which kind of feature are you looking for.by the way the license key is on your BIOS, so you don't need it to activate windows. here some difference on windows 8 versions, it's the same for 8.1:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_8_editions All mentioned editions have the ability to use language packs, enabling multiple user interface languages.[5] (This functionality was previously only available in Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise.) However, in China and other emerging markets, a variation of Windows 8 without this capability, called Windows 8 Single Language, is sold. This edition can be upgraded to Windows 8 Pro.[14]

I was going to update and remove some of the "windows features" that are enabled under Vista, but when the display box comes up, it is empty. I have tried to use the Microsoft KB931712 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931712) solution, but it tells me that it cannot delete the registry entry because it does not exist.

Has anyone had any luck with any other solutions to make it work (short of either paying Microsoft or reinstalling the OS)?

If the registry key doesn't exist, try creating it. BUT - there are several sub-keys beneath it, so this may not work for you - I'd suggest backing up your registry before trying this!!!

I have a Sony VAIO laptop, since I upgraded it form Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, whenever I reboot my computer or it wakes up from sleep mode, I receive a notification indicating,
"Windows is installing new features, it will take few minutes",  but after a few minute there is another message, saying
"there was a problem and we were not able to install features". I talked with a Windows technician, he ran Windows Safety Scanner (SFC \scannow) on my computer, which resulted in
not finding any problem and the error notification is still there.
Is there a solution for that and is there a way I be able to check which additional features are added to my OS by Windows and at what date?

A:Programs and Features Windows 7

Not that I am currently aware of. click programs and features, then click uninstall programs or features, and wait about 3 minutes (i know it may seem like a really long time, perhaps you could feed the dog, make lunch; in other words let it sit for a little bit). If it still wont pop up, then type cmd in the start menu and RIGHT click it, select run as administrator. type sfc /scannow and let it scan for as long as it needs (usually less than 5 minutes).

Some that I remember: Disabling Aero, disabling the windows splash screen. I know there were a lot more, too. I need to find that article again because I would like to re enable at least Aero and the splash screen, in particular. If I remember correctly, there were a lot of things changed in my Services. I tried to re enable Aero myself but the "typical" way of doing it doesn't work and it errors. So I'm assuming however it was that I did it was done at a deeper level.

These may not collide with other applications, but since these are BETA releases, they may (since it is MS, change that to will) have bugs and glitches, and they may interfere with other versions.You can certainly play with them, since you are testing them (that is, after all, what a BETA release is for), but do not rely on any of these releases to supplant proven applications, especially in "mission-critical" areas like your computer's security.Regards,John

What major features/service did you turn off in W7?
System Protection (Restore) -> Until I get a bigger harddrive, I'll keep it off. It is space chewing and there are so many good free backup utilities there, I use Easeus backup personally and Macrium sometimes.

Windows Search (Indexing services) -> Search will be fast as long as your files are organized and the condition is okay.

Windows Defender -> NOD32 is fine.

How about you guys?
