Q: Google To Microsoft: Remove YouTube App From Windows Phone

Google sure loves to play the Bully Google To Microsoft Remove YouTube App From Windows Phone Store It is the battle of giants and video is at the center of their conflict No sooner did Microsoft update its YouTube app for Windows Phone then Google the parent company that owns the popular video sharing service issued a cease Microsoft: To Windows Remove Phone Google From YouTube App and desist letter instructing the software giant to remove the YouTube app from the Windows Phone Store Google has demanded that Microsoft remove the app within a week s time We request that you immediately withdraw this application from the Windows Google To Microsoft: Remove YouTube App From Windows Phone Phone Store and disable existing downloads of the application by Wednesday Google To Microsoft: Remove YouTube App From Windows Phone May the Google letter to Microsoft read What is at the core of this matter The Microsoft YouTube application contains no ads which Google claimed impacts those content creators that are paid via Google s partner program Google further alleges that this is a violation of the YouTube API terms and conditions Content creators make money on YouTube by monetizing their content through advertising Unfortunately by blocking advertising and allowing downloads of videos your application cuts off a valuable ongoing revenue source for creators and causes harm to the thriving content ecosystem on YouTube the letter added We were surprised and disappointed that Microsoft chose to launch an application that deliberately deprives content creators of their rightful earnings especially given that Windows Phone users already have access to a fully-functional YouTube application based upon industry-standard HTML through the web browser Microsoft had launched the YouTube app for Windows Phone on May and while the Microsoft Windows Phone Store does not disclose the number of downloads for the app the YouTube app was reportedly reviewed by more than users and as of this week was the fifth-most-downloaded free app in the catalog Source Google Calls On Microsoft To Delete YouTube App - Technology News - redOrbit And the fights go on Chas

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.)

on other sites. When I use a different web browser it works so it is only a problem with Microsoft Edge. Any solution?

I purchased Windows 7 upgrade yesterday and tried to upgrade my Vista Home Premium to Windows 7. The install stopped with an error message that I needed to uninstall Google Toolbar and Microsoft Interactive Training before the upgrade could complete. But neither of those programs are listed in the Control Panel. I wrote to Windows 7 support and guess what, they wrote back that I needed to call an MS number and that I might be charged for the service. I HAVE TO PAY TO MS TO INSTALL MS SOFTWARE I PURCHASED? AND PAY TO UNINSTALL MS SOFTWARE THAT IS PREVENTING THE UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 7? Before I return the software and stay with this @$%#$ Vista I'll try one more time. Can anyone out there help me get rid of those two programs?

A:Remove Google Toolbar/Microsoft Interactive Training before Upgrade?

As you are finding, an in-place Upgrade is an inferior install which imports corruption from Vista into your new Win7.

It is much better to start fresh with a clean install. Back up your files, make your Vista Recovery Disks in case you ever want to restore to factory condition, then wipe the HD for cleanest slate:
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

The installer is driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device. Only change drivers if performance dictates, starting with chipset and display.

Install programs slowly to gauge performance after each. Don't let programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on RAM/CPU to spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets.

Run a lean mean AV which doesn't bloat your OS like free MS Security Essentials.

After it is done, clean and order your HD perfectly with state-of-the-art CCleaner ("Run Cleaner" and Registry tabs) then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly.

Then save a backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement in 15 minutes from DVD Repair console using stored image.

Hi - I hope this is the right place for this, I did not see a Windows 8 Phone forum...

I have an HTC PMM23300 phone on TMobile. I've been trying for weeks to get it to sign in to my Microsoft account. But whenever I try, it tells me "Can't Connect. We're having a problem signing in. Make sure you have good reception. If you do, the problem may be on the other end. Wait a little while and try again."

Well... I've certainly tried waiting. I've tried resetting the phone. I've tried resetting the phone to factory settings in case it is in a "bad state" as Microsoft suggests... but still no go. It does it on WiFi and on cell data.

Anyone have any suggestions to help? I like the phone, but I'm ready to get rid of it and go back to an iPhone... things shouldn't be this hard.

Thanks in advance!

My Nokia 920 has obviously also stopped connecting to the store/music and Xbox until I change to the new email address of the new windows account.

The problem is I just see how to change it, it doesn't seem to have an option to change sign in email address.

Am I being daft?

Hi there and welcome to Eightforums,

have you already tried searching the store using your Windows Phone? You can also seach using a computer through the Windows Phone site ==> The Smartphone Reinvented Around You | Windows Phone (United States)

I don't think Google Keep is available for Windows Phone though. I can't find it and that does not surprise me. Google isn't to kind to Microsoft and is doing everything they can to bully the Windows Phone users. So don't expect a Google Keep app will every become available.

But don't worry. Windows Phone is a great Phone OS and the Nokia Lumia 920 a great Phone! Just search for a non Google alternative.

Microsoft working on 'Apollo+' update for Windows Phone 8

Microsoft is allegedly working on an update to Windows Phone, called Apollo+. This will be a minor '.1' update that will add some of the features missing in the initial release, such as support for VPN networks and OTA updates. It will also include bug fixes for issues such as Wi-Fi connection bug. Microsoft reportedly ran out of time for the initial release of Windows Phone 8, due to which they had to leave out features such as a notification center. You can expect to see these features roll out gradually in future updates for Windows Phone 8.

Good thing, hopefully, this update will arrive sooner than I was expecting.

In related news, WinPho 7.8 may arrive this week.

Microsoft reveals 23% of user upgrades to Windows Phone come from Android

Not a surprising number, considering instability + performance (and security) issues with many many android sets.
 

A:Microsoft reveals 23% of user upgrades to Windows Phone come from Android

I kindof just can't wrap my head around those numbers though. The Feature Phone to Smartphone upgrades are all great! But I wonder what kind of Android handsets the WP8 users are coming from. For instance I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Ace (Crappy Android Phone) to an "Ativ S" (ridicilously cheap top of the line WP8 Phone). That said though, I really regret doing so because this far WP8 has been pretty much only a disappointment as far as I'm concerned. And I think anyone coming from a proper Android handset will be equally if not more disappointed then what I am.

Hardware wise my Ativ S is absolutely phenomenal value for the money. But decisions such as locking the Search button to "Bing Only" (who the **** uses bing over google, seriously?) or not supporting swiping keyboards is just really killing it.

I'm not saying it's all bad. I'm likely to keep my Ativ S for a couple of years and it serves me very well for the most importaint tasks, such as calendar usage/todo lists/notes/email/photos and all of that. But with the direction microsoft are taking I think it's really quite unlikely that I will ever buy another windows phone handset.

It's kindof like I have a really good phone, and I know it's really good. But I JUST DON'T LIKE IT.

A month ago, I thought that my PC was infected by malware when the ads just pop-up when I surfed the Internet, so I installed some anti-malware program such as: Malwarebytes anti-malware, Hitman pro, Adware cleaner, Avast. After that, I could use the Internet normally.
However, a week ago I could not access any google website such as google.com, youtube.com or gmail.com....This situation happened on all the browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE). I often got the errors like these: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT or SSL or ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. I can access other websites normally, and another PC at my house can access google without any problems at all.
So I type tracert www.google.com on cmd and I got this result:



Can't access to gmail and google drive me crazy because I need to use these websites everyday. Therefore, could anyone please help me to solve this problem? Many many thanks in advance.

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect

A:Phone Call From Microsoft

Hi John,

If I called you my number would show as unknown. So would calls from most people from Europe (and possibly elsewhere) as we get free international calls though VOIP from our phone/tv/internet providers. This is the norm and it shows up as "unknown". In fact if my mum gets a "unknown" caller she calls me back just in case it was me.

I also have a foreign accent compared to those from Oklahoma I expect.

None the less, if I call you and ask you to install TeamViewer, confirm your password, your inside-leg measurement or your zip-code or any other information you can be assured it was not me but an imposter.

Don't damn the "unknown" caller though - it can be a technical thing.

Cheers,

Adam

If I want to change the motherboard (essentially: replace the notebook) for the same serial number, do I actually have to call Microsoft on the phone? Once, or every time I have anew machine? What's the current state of affairs?

A:do I actually have to call Microsoft on the phone?

If you have a transferable Windows license and you change your motherboard (or make other significant hardware changes) you'll have to call them (every time in my experience).

Type slui 4 in run box and follow the instructions. Generally you'll only "talk" to a robot and type in the long string of numbers slui 4 gives you on your keypad and your code will be returned. You can use Skype and it gives an option to get the number back on your smartphone (but I've not tried that so not sure how it works).

Do you have the phone number? Me and a group of friends call these scammers (which I am pretty sure this was) and mess around with them and its a hoot.

Microsoft will never call, period.he next time they call, just say something like:

"Hey, that sounds good, hold on while I get something to write on."

Then lay the phone down and go about your business. They will get the message eventually and hang up, but at least it will wast some of their time.

Hi

Using microsoft Phone Dialer through a specialised system so when searching for a contact within the system - you can click on their phone number and the phone dials.

When you start a call two boxes come up as standard within the dialer

How can i get rid of these - i have tried a few of the options

Can anyone help?

thanks

Ok this is really weird but I was watching a video on Youtube normally, I closed the window before the video had finished and now every time I open youtube.com on Microsoft edge, after about 5 seconds (about the time it takes to load a video) the first few seconds of that video play then it stops. What makes this worse is that it is actually the first few chords of a horror track on a video game, so not something I can ignore. :/ This only happens on the Youtube homepage, even after restarting my computer and it does not occur on google chrome. I have no idea what to do.
 

A:Microsoft edge: Youtube error

This might be worth a shot. Try clicking on the three dots in the top right-hand corner of Edge, and choose settings. Then go to Clear Browsing Data, Choose What To Clear. You could try the top three boxes one by one by placing a tick in them (they're pre-ticked on mine) or just do all three together.

I bought a Lumia 950 whilst in America. I naively assumed there would be a store in the UK but now that I'm home I find that there is not. I would like to return the phone but when I called the UK Microsoft number the guy just said they weren't connected to the physical stores and couldn't help me.
Is my only option to mail it back to America?

Hi All I read the following post Fake Microsoft PhoneCalls - Page - Tech Support Guy Forums on the Microsoft Phone scams Now in this post Eddie posted about running OTL on the infected PC but that was basically where the physical tech support ended My brother had a similar call but what is different about this one is that they actually had remote access over the PC without my brother allowing them ANY remote access as with Windows Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop They called him and told him they will show him his PC is affected with viruses and call phone Fake Microsoft that his windows has expired which is not the case and they remotely installed PC tuneup software etc without Any computer consent Now since he is using Windows Home Basic Remote Desktop connection is not possible TO my brothers PC and Remote Assistance Fake Microsoft phone call needs to be authenticated by my brother first Now the only way I think they got access is either via a trojan horse or they hacked his WiFi which was not password protected and the Router had 'admin' and 'admin' for username and passw He had windows firewall enabled as well as MS Security Essentials at the time of the hack Now what I would like to know is how can I close off their access to my brothers PC I did the following Fake Microsoft phone call Restored the PC to weeks earlier secured the Router with an admin username and good password and I changed the WiFi security to WPA- What else can I do to remove any malware they might have installed like rootkits backdoors trojans etc I did a virus scan with Security Essentials but nothing found Thank You

Microsoft is not helping with my lumia 535 phone. There is no service center here in Malaysia. Please help! Where do I sought for help? The customer service is poor to max! First there were issues with the battery, secondly it wont charge, third - the keyboard types by itself like it is possessed! Fourth - Phone heats up within 5 minutes of conversation (hot like a cup of coffee in the morning). Fifth - Due to the heat, the edges of the back cover started to crack and the protect film peeled off. Now the phone is totally dead. Battery works well in another lumia 535 device. The customer service told me to contact a local microsoft service center but there is none. There is only a Nokia service center and they told me off that the parts are not available.

I can play lots of movies fullscreen at even 240p and they fill the whole screen but some videos don't fill the whole screen. I even have my AMD Radeon set to stretch things but it still doesn't do it for everything. So is there some way I can go about fixing this? Also sometimes when I go to navigate the video when it is loaded all the way it ends up going and reloading when I try to navigate and doesn't just go to the position in the video I want to go to.

A:How do I remove the sidebars in youtube videos?

You will have to add _popup word after watch, so that the video opens in full screen without sidebar and comments section. That is, the new video URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v. This method will change your video url and you can watch only video no extra ads.

Hi,
I had to change from 32 bit to 64 bit today. After about 5 hours I get a phone call from some foreign guy going on about 'Microsoft Software Warranty'. After about 10 minutes I asked what it would cost and said I didn't want it. Thought it was suspicious the whole time and was googling for info while talking.

I assume this is a scam and if so how on earth would they know I just re-formatted?

Some idiots may be on the same ISP as yours, scanned it and got your OS.
Also, there are many web plugins that say what browser, windows and version you are using.

Nothing to worry about, just make sure you have a good antivir program like avira

I have not seen this mentioned any wher on the site so thought i should post a message.

People are receiving phone calls from people claiming to be from Microsoft telling them that they have a virus. I believe this is limited to the UK but may be wrong.

These phone calls are a scam and the instructions that they give you should be ignored. Microsoft dont care if you get a virus and would not call you to let you know you had one.

I have had a few customers in the Selby area of the UK call me in regards to this as they were worried that they had a problem.

The Guardian published an article here : http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jul/18/phone-scam-india-call-centres.

Mods - Sorry if this is in the wrong place i wanted to alert people to the scam to prevent them further issues.
 

A:Warning: Scam Phone calls from Microsoft

we had one of our sales people get hit with this on their cell number, and I ended up speaking to the other end. It's 'windows service center', I could not get them to verify that they represented MS.

And they said that their name was Jane Austen, as the author.

Least they got some good taste in writing.
