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.)

A:Access Denied, unable to change security settings.

See if enabling the hidden Administrator (Super User) account will let you move the files. Make sure you also close the Dropbox client if you use that.
 
Press the Windows key + X and select CMD (as admin). Type the following. 
 
net user administrator /active:yes
 
Logout and you should see the Administrator Account. If not then reboot. If it cannot move files using the account then disable it using
 
net user administrator /active:no

I searched the site for a while and couldn't find an answer.... so I decided to post my question... sorry if this has been asked before.

Somehow every .IFO file on my computer (using XP) has been set to open with notepad as the default.... these files were from movies I've backed up to my computer, and when I burn the movies to a disc they burn properly, but then they won't read correctly when played on the dvd player. At first I thought it was just the type of discs I was using.. but later realized that the problem never occurred before I noticed all the .IFO files as default set to open with notepad.

What I need to know is how to set the properties of my .IFO files to read as Unknown application instead of Notepad.

Thanks ahead of time to anyone who can help.

Hello, I'm new on SevenForums and I need to help.

I was testing my Small Basic app, but when I launched it, the TextWindow font size was only 4?6 pixels.
So I launched the Command Prompt via Run, and the size was also 4?6.

In Properties, there were only 4 tabs and 9 sizes of Terminal font. The default one, 8?12, wasn't in the options.
I can show you screenshot of Properties window. (I'm using WindowsBlinds 8 with Mac skin, where active tab texture is same with inactive tab.)


How can I restore font size to 8?12?

It would be a big help for me if you post value of this:


Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker.

You could try sfc /scannow and that would undo all changes/modifications, and then you could just reapply the settings in windows blinds and see if that helps.....maybe something went funky when applying the theme.

Can I change the default settings in PSP7 (and PS6) to JPG?

Now, I save something I have to stop and scroll down and pick JPG.

I looked in PREFERENCES and in the SAVE box and don't see anything.

I'd rather have it as JPG and if I want to use something else (GIF, or even PSP I can scroll to that). Since I mainly save as JPG.

Hi as stated I cant change any of the default app settings in windows 10.
I tried to change my default browser to chrome,nothing happens after i click google chrome,its still edge.
This also applies to other defaults like maps,music player,photo viewer etc.

A:Cant change default app settings

Hello, have you researched this on the forum? Questions about this have been asked so often.. the forum is a useful resource tool.

Note that you cannot change defaults from within programs- true from Win 8 on.

Please see:
Default Apps - Choose in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Have you tried by these means?

Also note that there are special instructions about Chrome which you can find which many have had difficulties with.
Search
Chrome default browser
e.g.

Note too that a couple of old version programs e.g. Winzip if installed have caused defaults to be reset on restart.

Hope that helps and points you in the right direction.

A:How do you change the default settings on WORDPAD?

Nothing in the registry but there seems to be a work around.
http://www.pcworld.com/article/52364...y_to_read.html

Here is another option as well. Again it does a template but then you make a change in the registry. Quoted from this link.
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...5-e96897329df4

Quote:




The fix is actually quite simple (if you don't mind getting your fingers dirty). The settings might be baked into wordpad (silly thing to do), but the templates-system is still there.

1. Create a template file called "New Rich Text Document.rtf " (or whatever you want the default filename to be) in C:\Windows\ShellNew\ , edit this file to your desired settings. Don't forget to save.

2. Open regedit, browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew and add a new string (New -> String Value) calledFileName . Choose Modify and set Value data to "New Rich Text Document.rtf ". (or whatever your template is called)




Or you can paste the following into a pure text-file named rtf.reg. Remember to create the template...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew]

"FileName"="New Rich Text Document.rtf

Hi...this is my first post to the site though I have been hangin around a lot. I recently got hijcacked and microsoft antispyware was able to fix it, but it restored my IE settings to settings that were not my original ones. Is there a way I can change the default reset settings the program uses?

A:How to change the default settings in microsoft antispyware/

Hey flaggle and welcome to the site.

To change these default settings that microsoft antispyware will use when it resets a browser hijacking do the following:

1. Double click on the Antispyware icon to start the main program.

2. Click on tools, then advanced tools, then browser hijacker settings restore

3. You should now see a listing of default IE settings. Click on the setting you want to change the default of once, so it becomes highlighted.

4. In the lower right click on the link that says Change restore settings to a new url.

5. A dialog box will come up asking what you would like to change it to. Enter in the new url. And press the ok button.

The program will now change IE's setting to what you enter make it the default restore setting.

Help is appreciated. Thanks

A:How do you change the default graphics driver settings?

Is there a way to change what these defaults are?No. That's why they're called "defaults." Defaults are what the graphics card manufacturer says they are. Defaults are what you set back to after you mess it up trying to change it to something else.

Forgive me if this has been posted, but I'm getting database errors when trying to search. I print from IE7 a LOT from a work application, and have to change the zoom to 70% and set landscape almost everytime. Anyone know of a reg hack that can set the defaults to what I need them to be?

I googled and found one:

Quote:




HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl

Add the following key:
FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min

In that key, add the following DWORD value:
iexplore.exe

For the value, enter the decimal value you want the zoom level to be (eg,
100).




This only works if I set it to 100%. If I try to put it at 70 (or any other value, for that matter) it defaults back to Shrink to Fit. Any help?

I'm using IE7.0.5730.13 on XP pro sp3.
Thanks

Hey all. I realize Windows 10 defaults to last printer used and you have to turn that off in settings. That solved my problem. However, since adding a new PC to my network and using a printer as a network printer, it seems to over ride the setting and keeps changing my default printer to the last used one. Its a tiny thermal printer so this is a huge pain .

Any advice? Again I've already set my default printer and switched the last used option to "off"

Also, the new PC is running on windows 10 but does not have the option to turn off last used printer as default.

I want to transfer video using Pinnacle, but the software isn't in the list of default programs. How can I get it to show up there? This has to be an easy question, right?

A:Default program--how to change

Hello Bling

You can set default programs one of two ways

Through the defaults list or through right click

1. Find the item you want to change the default program for

2. Right click on the item and select "Open With"

3. On the bottom left check "Always Use The Selected Program To Open This Kind Of File"

4. Either select a program from the list or select browse

5. When you have selected the program you want select "OK"

This should now be the default program that opens that item, This works for files, images, videos, video converters and audio converters :)

Lately my computer won't open pictures to view with Windows Photo Viewer.

I've already read several threads on this and have tried the customary links that are supposed to do this.

When I go the the "Chooses default program" on the preview link, it stays frozen on Microsoft Picture Manager whenever I try to change it.

I've been able to open with Internet Explorer, but I would like to go back to opening files with Windows Photo Viewer. I believe that this does not need to be installed as it is already a Windows feature. (7)

Any help and ideas beyond what I have already tried are greatly appreciated.

A:Default Program Settings Not Setting/Selecting

Hi, a number of people have experienced difficulty with defaults not being retained.

First:
"an application I have installed (EditPad by JGSoft and Adobe Acrobat Pro) is not available to be selected as a default"
It is, unfortunately normal for Win 10 not to list all available programs that might be capable of handling a given extension.

"Two conditions must be met for a program to appear in that list:
1) The program must have registered itself as being capable of handling at least one file type
2) At least one other program must have registered itself of being capable of handling at least one of those same file type(s).
If a program is the only present program capable of handling a specific file type (such as .PPT for PowerPoint files), that program will not appear in the list because there is no alternative."

Hello

I'm working for a while now with Hyper-V by using it for a lab environment of several server and client VMs. I have the enhanced session mode enabled as described here and I have not saved the configuration for any of the VM's because I want to be able to quickly change it if needed.

However, what I don't like is that by default the redirection of printers is activated. I would like to disable that for all VMs. How can I do that? I'm sure the default settings must be saved in either in a config file or in the registry but until now I haven't found out where and a search with Google didn't give any helpful links either. Does anyone know where those settings are?

Thanks for any help.

Whenever I try to highlight part of a word along with another word with the cursor, Windows automatically highlights the entire word. I know this has been the default setting for a long time, but it's really getting on my nerves. If I start highlighting in the middle of a word, it's because I need to highlight starting in the middle of the word.

I know I can override this on the keyboard by using shift to highlight, but that's extremely inconvenient. Is there a way to disable it altogether? Maybe even in just individual programs (in particular, Word, at the moment)?

We have a server running Win 7 Enterprise.  We have a software raid 1 (2 disks mirrored) running with the Intel Raid Matrix Storage Manager.  We have no issues building the raid, or with the raid in general.  Our issue is that the primary
disk failed.  This is a simple solution of building a new disk.  Our issue comes up when we switch the secondary (mirrored) disk from Port 1 to Port 0.  The disk boots, and the Intel software allows you to add a new disk to the raid.  When
we go in and check the IP address, it deletes the default gateway.  We have not been able to add the default gateway since.  It is greyed out, and you cannot select or tab to it.
Has anyone seen this issue before?  Is there an easy fix, or am I back to building this system from an online backup?

In the FAQ pdf it says you can change the install drive if it's not an external drive, but it still has to be under Program Files. I take it if you want it to be on D: and don't have a Program Files under D: you have to make one.

If you search using this string you should get a link to the pdf

TrendMicro Titanium Maximum Security 3 install path

I can't figure out how to get a link to the page with the pdf and not a direct link so I'm just doing it this way.

Whenever I plug a photo card in to my PC, the new Photo Viewer program is launched (which doesn't find the card but that doesn't matter as I don't want to use that program anyway). How can I change the default import program to one of my choice (Lightroom).
I can of course shut it down, load Lightroom and then select the card but I always have to go through the process of first shutting down the program that loads automatically. If anything is going to load automatically I would rather pick my own!

A:Change default photo import program

There are two stages to this:

1. Change your default program for photos to Lightroom.
2. Choose what happens when you insert media.

For 1 you need to go to Settings -> System -> Default Apps and on the Photos icon choose your default program as Lightroom

For 2 you need to go Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Autoplay and Choose what happens when you insert each type of media.

Make sure that for Camera memory cards - import photos and videos is selected.

I installed windows 7 on my SSD. Besides a few games, I want all other program installs to go to my HDD. For instance, my internet security and all driver/utilities that are on CD's that came with the hardware. These programs/drivers/utilities do not give me any option to install to my HDD (E drive) and automatically install to my C drive. Is there any way I can do what I want?

Hi,
I want to save the Default Gateways in Advance TCP/IP Settings for my network adapter. I used the following sequence to set the values:

1. Open Adapter Settings (LAN Properties).
2. Select IPv4 and click on Properties.
3. Click Advance.
4. In the Popup select to add Default Gateways for both my Wired and Wireless network.
5. Click OK to close all open windows.
6.--TROUBLE STARTS HERE--

When I again open the settings, the changes in Default Gateways are all gone..

The default gateway for both my wired and wireless network are same and both are connected to internet. I want to prefer wired over wireless whenever it is connected.
I already tried changing Interface Metrics with no use at all.
I searched the internet and got the information to select the default gateways with proper metrics.

I have recenly been playing around with various mail clients and Installing/Uninstalling them seems to have screwed up the default mail client on my system somehow.

Clicking on the default mail icon brings up Internet Properties regardless of what service I have selected as my default mail program.

How can I restore this and set my Outlook Express (or other mail software) as the default. I have already tried changing the setting in Internet Options several times and even telling OE to make itself the default and it is listed in Internet Optopns as the default, however the link just opens Internet Options instead of any mail client.

When I had Mozilla installed, it launched as the default regardless of any settings, but since I removed it it doesn't launch anything other than the options...

any ideas?

Uninstall Python. That should dis-associate it from .dll. Then reinstall.

A:Unable to change default audio playback device

What model PC?

But, generally if you have the speakers set as default playback device and the plug in a headset it will automatically switch to the headset, unplug the headset and it will revert to the speakers.

For the front panel headset/mic jack, is the cable that's connected to the motherboard labeled "HD Audio"? or is it the older "AC97". Some sound system control panels have a setup for whichever you have (the HD Audio is the preferred connector).

I have DELL desktop PC with Windows 7 64 bit. Once i have used HotSpot Shield for few days. After uninstalling the HotSpot, I am unable to change TCP/IP and DNS servers settings. My network adaptor is set up to default (automatically obtain ip address).

Each time when i tried to change the dns servers settings, it requires a reboot (which is not happened with other PCs). and after reboot, its again set up to obtain ip and dns servers settings automatically.

I have Avira FREE antivirus and its not showing any virus.
I have cleaned my PC using Malwarebytes, some virus detected and removed but in vain.

I am still unable to change my Network Adaptor's dns servers settings. Any advise please?
 

A:Unable to change TCP/IP and DNS servers settings

You say the problem occurred with the install/uninstall of HotSpot. I would to a system restore to right before you installed HotSpot in the first place. Just type system restore into the search bar of the icon in the bottom left hand corner. If you need more restore points, choose the option in the bottom left area that says show more restore points.

Windows refuses to change the version application called upon with default program.

I have 2 versions of 3ds max (2010 and 2015) on my system. I need both for different utilities (some that work in 2010 do not work in 2015, and vice versa).

I tried to change the default left click open program to 3ds max 2015.

However, Windows refuses to acknowledge this and insists on using 3ds Max 2010's 3dsmax.exe instead.

I am using the correct path to the launcher in the 2015 version's folder, I made sure of this at least 15 times.

I have gone through regedit tutorials, even downloaded a utility called openwithview, and tried working with the UI interface for 'open with' for hours but to no avail. Why is windows so insistent on using 3dsmax.exe from the 2010 version even when explicitly told to use the 2015 version? What is causing it to fight so hard with me? How can I change this behavior?

The computer will not allow me to install or uninstall programs. When I try to install a program, it says: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142)."
(Therefore I was unable to install and run Defogger, DDS and Gmer so the diagnostics are not attached).
When I try to uninstall a program, it restarts Windows Explorer.
The time on the computer has also been changing, and when I try to edit the time settings, it comes up with the same error message. I cannot access other settings, including internet options, either.
Windows 7.
Thanks and hope you can help.

Hi,

I use a Vista Enterprise Laptop for work, of which I am in the administrator group and can Install/Remove Programs and do just about averything else other than the Power settings.....

I want to remove my password login after resuming, but this is greyed out and it says some settings are controlled by the system administrator, but yet I am listed as administrator?
Also I I try to access gpedit.msc, it says I may not have access rights?

Please help

A:Unable to change power settings as Administrator

Hi ronvegas

You may be an administrator, but you are not the system administrator, have a word with your system administrator.

Hello Some Win weirdness here I want to move to change settings Unable Dump Crash the crash dump files off of my C drive and onto D since C is an SSD I changed both the minidump and full dump settings in Computer Unable to change Crash Dump settings gt gt Properties gt gt Advanced System Settings gt gt Startup and Recovery When I press OK after the changes I get the following warning Windows might not be able to record details that could help identify system errors because your current paging file is disabled or less than MBytes Click OK to return to the Virtual Memory settings window enable the paging file and set the size to a value over MB or click Cancel to change your memory dump selection However this is not true a quick trip to the Virtual Memory setting confirms that there is a page file on Y and it's size is MB system managed No page file on C or D This is the way it was set up on purpose So I ignore the warning and save my settings Then I reboot If I go to Computer gt gt Manage gt gt Disks Disk Administrator still reports the C volume as quot Crash Dump quot Any idea what's going on here Thanks SS

A:Unable to change Crash Dump settings

Have you found out of this?

I've also got an SSD as drive C:, and Windows crashes quite often, but is unable to write the crash dump files to drive C:, so I think there might be a problem with my SSD drive or maybe the controller or drivers for the controller.

IE8....Tools.....Security tab......I'm unable to change any of the zone settings as the buttons are greyed out.

I've been looking at plenty o' websites, and all are telling me to regedit certain keys that are not found in my registry:

HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel - I have no "internet explorer" key

HKLM\same same as above - also same same as above...the key does not exist.

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microft\Windows|Current Version\Internet Settings - i have this key, but the string called out that is supposed to be deleted doesn't exist - "Security_options_edit"

any idea on what I need to do here to enable this?

A:Unable to change IE8 security settings-XP home SP3

You might want to consider rolling back to IE7 and then reinstalling IE8. That approach seems to work with these kind of problems.

I'm teaching myself Hyper-V as an alternative to VMWare. I activated Hyper-V on Windows 8.1 and used it to create a Windows 10 virtual machine.
I'm not able to sign in to my Microsoft Account from the virtual machine because "to sign in remotely, you need the right to sign in through Remote Desktop Services."
Also, I can't change my display settings because "the display settings can't be changed from a remote session."
Here's what I've tried so far to remedy the situation:

Same problem on Generation 1 and Generation 2 VMsIn Hyper-V settings, Enhanced Session Mode is allowed in Server and UserIn the Windows 8.1 host machine, the user account with Administrator permissions (which runs Hyper-V) was added to the Hyper-V Administrators groupIn the Windows 8.1 host machine, "Allow remote connections to this computer" is enabled

How can I sign in to my Microsoft Account, and change my display settings, from a Hyper-V virtual machine?
