Preferred Solution: disabling / removing Metro GUI (works for current developer release)

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

A: disabling / removing Metro GUI (works for current developer release)

Thanks for that tip, Jimbo. I'm sure that the GUI will be useful on a touch interface, but it's worse then useless in a workstation/desktop environment.

This is just a question in preparation to installing the developer release of Windows 8.

What is the correct way after installing Windows 8 Developer Release, to remove it, and for example install Windows 8 Beta if it is available?

Will the boot menu also be removed, in other words, what is the correct method to get back to the computer's previous state?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Best regards,

Assume I have an external hard disk with one (backup) partition which is currently mounted as drive Q:\

Now I right-click on the Recycle Bin icon on my desktop, then select Properties--->Drive Q: and enable

"Don't move files to the recycleBin. Remoive files immediately when deleted"

Much to my surprise this switch does NOT delete currently existing stuff in RecycleBin of drive Q:\
The toggeling applies only to future deletes.

Can someone confirm this strange behaviour?

How can I tell Win 7 to delete ALL currently existing files in RecycleBin of drive Q: ?

Can I simply unhide "protected folders" in WinExplorer and delete all the files manually?

Or is there a smarter way?

How do I delete all files+folders fom all RECYCLEBINs from all partitions currently mounted?


A:Disabling Recycle Bin does NOT delete current existing content?

Review this post:

Virus on C:\$Recycle.Bin

Before going ahead right click Recycle Bin (shown on desktop) - choose "Properties" and make a note of all drive letters shown,

Repeat the command in the above link for all drive letters substituting each drive letter in turn.

After reboot and desktop refresh - reconfigure Recycle Bin options.

When I updated to the release preview, Metro stopped working on my computer. The tiles said Microsoft.ZuneMusic/AppexNews and when I clicked them they did not open. If I tried to open the store, it would open the splash screen and then crash. So then I tried to re-install windows 8 but it would not install and said it was experiencing problems with my hardware (which makes no sense since the Developer Preview worked perfectly fine). Now whenever I start up my computer I have to choose between Windows 8 on disk 2, another option for Windows 8 on disk two, or Windows Setup. And metro still does not work. What is happening? Can someone please help me? Thank you!

A:Release Preview does not work, developer preview did?

Hello Ishpan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

What happens when you select "Windows Setup" with your installation disc still there?

You might see if the issue and solution in the link below may the same as what you are having.

What to do if Windows 8 Release Preview won't install

If not, then double check to make sure that you do a clean install of Windows 8 instead.

Hi all

Recently I started having a problem where after my computer is on for awhile, nothing that operates in the Metro UI will open or function at all. This includes the Start menu, any Windows 10 apps including Settings, Task View, the alt-tab interface, etc. I also cannot log out or restart or shut down, I can get to the options from Ctrl+Alt+Del but it just gets stuck on logging out and I have to do a hard reset. If fixing this without doing a system refresh is possible that would be great, but if not I can swing it.

Thanks in advance!

I just upgraded a Win 7 64 PC to Win 8 64.

Internet/IE works fine in desktop mode.

When I'm in Metro mode, IE, weather panel, news, etc. all don't have an internet connection.

There is some data in those panels though, so it's getting information somehow.

Store let me install and app (iHeartRadio), but then the app doesn't seem to have internet access.

Bing search does return results, but when I click on results and go to IE, I get page can't be displayed error.

I reset my IE settings when in desktop mode (so no proxies), installed updated networking drivers and I've rebooted my router. I also did reset connection in IE/Metro version.

Also tried to turn off defender and firewall and same thing.

Any ideas?

A:Internet Goes Down, IPCONFIG Release & Renew Works

You should use the router, plug the modem into the WAN port on the router then connect your machine to the router.

You can usually access the router's page by typing or into the URL of your browser.

After that post the ipconfig/all here.

By the way, iTunes leaves a present behind called Bonjour, you will want to disable that in Windows services. It may show up as "ID string" with a bunch of numbers.

There is no uninstaller in the Programs directory for the program, either. Any suggestions?

This happens on 3 machines I own.

Using win 8 I could see all my printers under metro but when I select one (say from iexplorer) I get "there was a problem connection to the printer." I get this no matter what I select, printers, Adobe Pro Creator, Microsoft XPS creator...

When I use Desktop, PERFECT.

When I updated to 8.1 it all started working! Then one day mysteriously stopped on all machines.

8.1 update did not resolve it.

Any and all help would be appreciated. Microsoft support spent 3 hours trying to figure it out and refunded my money

There are issues with Metro that no one can figure out. That is why most of us stay in the Desktop mode. As for the rep at MS. Those are Tier I, or low level reps. You may have to send an email about the issue to the engineers at Redmond.

Try going to the Control Panel, open Add/Remove programs and attempt to remove the program. If that doesn't work, try inserting the original Works installation disc and removing from there. If that doesn't work, you can edit the Registry which I wouldn't recommend doing without first backing it up and enlisting expert help. An incorrect change in the Registry can cause your computer to become useless.

Welcome to the EightForums! liviococcia

Once the finished retail product is available when launched you would need to perform a clean install as with any previous version of Windows. The backup tools however may allow you to preserve and restore user files and settings without too much problem.

The final details in the "pudding" so to speak will be known once the RTM(Release To Manufacturers) is seen. Clean installs are always the preferred option over upgrading over a previous version which can often carry some problems along with the upgrade.

With the Windows Easy Transfer option with 7 once all programs were back on a clean install the restoration of the backup made with that option was found to restore the files and settings with 7. I expect the same should be seen with 8 as well.

My mouse's right click is not functioning properly. When I press down the right mouse button, nothing happens, but when I release the button it seems to perform right mouse down and right mouse up at the same time. I figured this out through Browser Mouse Event Test Page. I have tried switching to a different mouse, but it still has the same issue. Everything else about my mouse seems to be fine(left click, movement, ect.). This makes me unable to hold down the right mouse button, which is required in most games.

I purchased a boxed PC-Cillin Internet Security to replace Nortons System Works including NAV for my PC running XP Pro As I was installing PC-cillin it said it would remove Norton Antivirus for me When I tried to finish the install it said NAV was still present I uninstalled NAV from Add Remove Programs and it disappeared from Currently Installed Programs list But when I looked on my computer NAV was still all in the folder I then uninstalled Norton SystemWorks via Add Remove programs Probably not a wise move However NAV still was there in its folder So I went into the folder and manually deleted all the files from the computer I still couldn t install P-Cillin because it continued to detected NAV and wouldn t proceed with the Problems System Works with 2002 removing Nortons install I now realise from reading many posts here that NAV has many embedded references throughout the Registry Is there a registry cleaning method that doesn t involve manually going through looking for references Problems with removing Nortons System Works 2002 to delete I did try to do that in RegEdit but after minutes I hadn t got far Was it ok to use Find in RegEdit I asked for quot Nortons quot and did delete them that way Any other words I should have been searching for It was pretty scary and I hadn t backed up the Registry How should I do that Symantec no longer supports and said they couldn t help me Would appreciate any advice or warnings Thanks WG nbsp

Hi, Please read well this page> part of it pertains to OTHER versions, and operating systems, so be sure you are using directions (Copy the correct ones, or print them out) for your XP system and for NSW 2002>

"""How to uninstall NSW when the Windows uninstall utility does not work"""

The page below is an even better version of the uninstall directions> again, be sure you are looking at the correct steps!
You will need the SYMClean utility shown. You MAY need to use the manual cleanup method if the utility does not work for you. The manual method shows you exactly what Registry items to remove, but it sure is not for the inexperienced, there are many entries scattered through the Registry and you might find it a long, tedious process, but it should work. Hopefully the Symantec removal cleanup tool does the trick for you. Good luck.

I 'had' system works 2001 installed. I bought system works 2003 and installed it but did not know that I had to fully remove all the old system works 2001 files..
So I uninstalled some, used the Symclean utility and also used Rnav2003 exec and still the install says I have files left in the system.

I am using WinME.

I just dont understand why a program like this does not make it easy to remove old files when installing a newer version.

OK, simply put I'm sick and tired of other programs running in the background hijacking my current window.

ie: I start a process in one window that may take awhile, switch to something else to work on... when the background process is done, depending on the program, it will often force itself to the front. VERY frustrating when you're working on something else, then some background task decided "No, I'm going to take you out of that form box your typing in because I'M coming to the front".

Is there a setting anywhere that can stop background program from hijacking the current window you're working in?

Couldn't seem to find an answer to this by searching, apologies if it has been asked in different wording.

Basically, most apps when I launch them from Metro UI, switches to the standard Desktop and opens it there.

Is it possible to get them to open over the top of the Metro UI instead? Otherwise it feels like I am using two different OS's at the same time; driving me nuts.

I don't mind the Metro UI as I use my PC is an HTPC, but it does not feel like my programs are integrated with one another.

I guess what I'm asking is how can I disable the desktop completely so I only have the Metro UI as the underlying layer?

A:How to keep non metro apps on top of metro UI?

I assume you are referring to the new Start Screen. It has tiles for Metro Apps and Desktop Apps. If you click on a Metro App it opens in its own window. When you click on a Desktop App it opens in the Desktop. Its just a big Menu screen.

Im a web developer. Currently, I have no separate GPU. Im using the i3's Intel HD 2000 Graphics. Its not good. I don't think its getting the colors right for me. I have troubles with unclear text and all. Its not a problem with my monitor (One is HDMI and the other is normal (analogue)). When I plug it into my laptop, things become very clear (It have Intel 4000 HD (i7 3rd gen) and Nvidia 610m).
So, I need a GPU for my desktop and its very hard to choose. There are 4 choices in the local market :
EVGA Nvidia GT 610
EVGA Nvidia GT 620
EVGA Nvidia GT 630
EVGA Nvidia GT 640
I also don't want to spend much. But what will be the best choice for a web developer who occasionally use photoshop and need clear images with better colors? Do I have to go all the way upto 640 or can I do with 610 or 620? One important thing... Im not playing games

A:What is the best VGA for a web developer? Nvidia 610,620..

VGA is a type of connection...what you mean to say is a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).

We need more information on what other hardware components you have. If you could fill out your system specs as best as you can with as much detail as you can. That being said, it depends on what size your PSU is in wattage. The brand you've chosen is a highly recommended.

I can't speak for the legal aspects, and I'm not sure of your experience. But I'll give a word to the wise anyway: If you're developing an Access DB on your machine and want to run it on arbitrary other machines, you must have the proper sw to package the finished product for installation on these other machines. The sw adds the necessary run-time routines, among other things. I've done a little of this also and I have gained nothing but respect for the people that do it for a living. The problems that can be caused by different hw and sw configurations are mind-boggling. Certainly, you must scour the web for relevant information about this kind of development work. Here's one (of a million) places you can start with:

IE 9 developer preview: 700,000 downloads so far; next update 'on track.'

Since Microsoft made available to testers the Internet Explorer (IE) 9 developer preview in mid-March, there have been about 700,000 downloads of it, according to a source close to the situation, who asked not to be identified.

IE General Manager Dean Hachamovitch, with whom I had a brief phone conversation on April 7, would not comment on the exact number of IE 9 downloads to date. But he did confirm there has been positive reception for Microsoft?s next release of IE ? a release which will feature HTML 5 support, a new, speedier JavaScript engine and a host of other features.

hey guys,
do you think you ould check this out and maybe see if you can help me??


A:To Snake~eyes or other PHP developer

sure.. okay..

well for that one question, you want to count the ammount of files

//define the path as relative

$path "/home/yoursite/public_html/whatever";

//using the opendir function

$dir_handle = @opendir($path);

//running the while loop

while (readdir($dir_handle)) {



//closing the directory



only problem with this is that this counts folders inside the directory too.

all you have to do is change the $path variable

i hope that helps

Hi all I am an IT professional who made a small mistake when purchasing my new laptop I have a bit dual core processor with Vista premium developer? for a 32 Ultimate or 64 Vista and found out that I needed IIS that included Windows Authentification in order to do some work I have in VS NET and for installing Reporting Services So I'm going to Vista Ultimate 64 or 32 for a developer? upgrade to Vista Ultimate Vista Premium IIS is LIMITED Major bummer My question is whether I need the bit version I am basically a devloper who will develop C web apps and will host my own Reporting Services site on my laptop and SQL Server stuff with SSIS SSAS and SSRS I'll eventualy end up on the next release of SQL Server coming out next year and I'm sure I'll end up working with and the new VS NET that is in Beta So should I risk having some devices of mine not working and get the bit because evenutaly I'll HAVE to go or will do just fine Part of me doesn't want to hassle with but part of me does't want to get the wrong version of Vista again Thanks Keith

A:Vista Ultimate 64 or 32 for a developer?

Hi greenmtnsun,

With Vista Ultimate you can choose to use 32 or 64 bit. 64-bit is included with the Ultimate version. As far as whether you should use 64 bit instead will depend on if everything you need and your drivers are a 64 bit compatible version. If not, can you live without it until there is support if any will come.

Also, since you already have Home Premium, you can buy a 64-bit Home Premium upgrade from Microsoft for just $9.99 (S&H only). Here's the link to order if interested :

Hope this helps,

I've been a software developer for a number of years and from time to time I get the itch to learn electronics. From a birds eye view it "seems" hardware electronics is no different from the logic of software programming -- a few basic statements strung together in some logical fashion.

As a software programmer who wants to "eventually" create some hardware (ie. parallel port cable splitter, webcam, ethernet hub) what books would you recommend I check out? Ideally the book would consider my software background and provide digital hardware examples.

A:Becoming a Hardware Developer -- Any books?

I'd consider starting at your local college. Hardware design is not "just the same as software".

I have tried several times to install the Oracle 10g developer and each time I get errors that say the registry name for some files is > 1024 characters long. I pick to ignore, but when the install is done it does not install all the programs. I really just need forms and reports. Forms seems to work, but the program for reports never gets installed. Can anyone help me with this?

A:Installing Oracle 10 developer

Are you running installer as Administrator?

What I do in a case like this is google the verbatim error text to see how others have solved it .

It's a major program so also likely has tech support that knows the error.
