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.)

This is a weird question to ask but here it goes. I'm running windows vista 32bit and have an application that hosts a bunch of other windows inside of it. The app can only have one instance running at a time and I am limited on desktop space. Is there any way I can span the host application across some virtual desktops so I can open more of the windows and just switch desktops to view them?

Thanks in advance for any input.

If you have an ATI graphics card, you could try installing Hydravision. One of the feature is it lets you have multiple virtual desktops.

The tablet ran out of power during a factory reset and bricked (windows doesn't boot up). I tried to fix it by trying to boot from usb with windows. However I made a mistake and set efi as the second boot choice. The tablet does not boot from usb for some reason and goes straight in to efi. I'm unable to access BIOS during boot.

How do i access the BIOS from efi ?
Why doesn't windows boot from usb as it should ?

Any help would be much appreciated as I am stuck on what to do next, I am not an IT specialist but I have a basic understanding.

I know this sounds silly. But currently I am working on a kiosk and just want to start the Tablet PC Input (keyboard) and immediate minimize it. Is there any setting I can try under Window 7? Because every time I open the Tablet PC Input, it would be centralized on the screen. I want to start it and it immediate hide to the left without clicking anything.

Thanks in advance

A:Can I hide the Tablet PC Input to the left on startup for Window 7?

Hi Hikigaya,

I tried, but could not find a way to 'minimize' the 'Tablet PC Input' interface when not in use. The utility offers an option to 'dock' the 'work area' in different parts of the screen. You may want to place a shortcut of the application on the 'desktop screen'. That will allow you to launch the program directly from the 'main screen' and close it when not in use. On closing the application, the program gets refreshed (Current data gets lost if not saved). However, the 'Tablet PC interface' hides itself and can be retrieved by dragging it from the left side of the display screen.

To create a shortcut, click the 'Start icon' > Type 'Tablet' in the 'Search text box' > Right click 'Tablet PC Input Panel' from the 'search results' > Go to 'Send To' > Select 'Desktop (Shortcut)'

You may want to have a look at the following video that I tried creating for you; please check the attachment.

Hope this helps.

Been messing with this for days. When I open the Control Panel I do not have the option to switch the view on the left side pane. All that is there is the See Also window. I went to view, Toolbar, Customize and added the views icon to the toolbar. As long as I keep the customize toolbar box open and move it up or down I can see it on the toolbar. Once I close the Customize Toolbar window the view icon grays out on the tool bar. My back button is the same way. I checked in another users window and the control panel is fine. I have Windows XP SP3. I am the Admin on the PC. Any help would be great.

i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

I thank you for your time.

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

I would like to be able to open a new browser window in Firefox which would start at the identical location to the one that's open rather than opening at the home page.

In IE, File / New / Window works well for this purpose, and then if you wanted it to start at the Home Page, you could just run Explorer a second time.

It gives the flexibility of going off on other trails with the additional window, but still having the original window open. I'm not crazy about tabs which take up extra space in the browsing window. However, is there even a way to open a new tab at the same location as the current window? Maybe I'm missing the joy of tabs somehow and am stuck in my old way of thinking. Still, I would like to know if what I want is possible.


A:[SOLVED] Open new browse window at same location as current window

Hi I don't think that is an option but I understand what your after and this is the way I do it with keyboard short cuts of

Ctrl + C = copy (While holding down Ctrl tap the C key once)
Ctrl + V = paste
Ctrl + T = new tab
Ctrl + N = New page

OK starting with tabs which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now to copy the URL Ctrl + C your computer will remember this link until you either copy something else or you shut down the computer.

Now we open a new tab Ctrl + T a new blank tab will open and the URL location is blank but with the cursor already in it so we paste the URL there by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have the duplicate page

Now working with a new page there is just a couple of small differences.

You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (once again do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now we open a new page with Ctrl + N a new page will open but the difference is it will not be blank it will be your home page so as there is already a URL that we want to get rid of. The simple way is to once again click on it only once to select it then paste the saved URL by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have your duplicate page. I may have made this sound involved but just try it once and you will see it's quite simple.

Another thing I do is when I have a google search page open or a page with several links I want to look at.

I hold down Ctrl while I click on links that way I still have my original page and everything opens in new tabs.

what do i do my window 7 has "this copy of window 7 is not genuine build 7600" and my system is slower than before.i used HIJACKTHIS software to scan it, please who can analyse it for me. the log file reads:Mod Edit: Removed malware log data, see No DDS, HijackThis, or ComboFix logs should be posted in this forum. - - ~ Hamluis.

A:my window 7 has "this copy of window 7 is not genuine build 7600"

You need to provide basic information about the system manufacturer and model...what your problems are...when they began...any onscreen error messages, etc...if you really want someone to be able to guess at what might be wrong with your system.

"This copy of Windows 7 is not genuine" messages...occur for any number of reasons, none of them have anything to do with malware.

Simply put...reactivate Win 7, either online or via telephone.

I was just wondering if there was XP hack or some small add-on freeware that would add to the taskbar or a desktop shortcut a simple toggle to quickly toggle between "Open each folder in the same window" and "Open each folder in it's own window"? Thx.

A:XP experts. Is there any way to ---toggle folder options--New Window/Same Window?

I don't know the answer, but playing around I found something that may serve as a workaround if you do not find something better.

I'm set to open folders in the same window. When I right click on a folder the first two menu items are usually Open and Explore, but sometimes they are reversed. If I select the 2nd item I get the folder opening in a new window.

Try plugging a wired USB mouse into the laptop. If it works, then the issue is likely with the Targus mouse.

Welcome to the Seven Forums! inlalaland

First when not able to run the System Restore feature while in Windows the fast alternative is simply booting up from the 7 dvd if you have one and going into the repair tools where the options for using the feature is there along with restoring a full system image backup. You simply use a restore point while booted live from disk.

If you don't have a 7 dvd to boot from the option to burn a repair cd is found in the Control Panel>Backup & Restore section or available at Neosmart Technologies. Windows 7 Repair and Recovery CD Download | The NeoSmart Files

There you would still need to see the disk image burned to a blank cd-r first in order to boot from the new cd. The other tool besides the System File Checker you can try would be the Disk Check tool you can schedule to run from a command prompt since you likely wouldn't be able to right click on the C drive icon to bring up properties>Tools and click on the Check now button under Error checking.

Typing "chkdsk /r" and pressing enter should see a message asking to schedule it for the next startup you answer with a Y for yes or N for no. This can help with any errors on the drive to help to some extent getting Windows to run normally. If the problems however are too severe the option to see a Repair Install or performing a full Clean Install (last resort) would have to be considered.

My Windows 10 Home upgraded from Windows 8.1 could not see other Windows 10 Machines on my home network from Windows Explorer. It could see Windows 7 machines but not Windows 10. I tried various suggestion from this forum and others with no success.

While researching a problem with "Browser" service (running but with error message - Failed to read description ), a solution was to turn on a Windows feature "SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support". After reboot, Suprise!! My computer now sees all other computers on the network, "Browser" service is deleted, and "Computer Browser" service was created.

My surmize is that "SMB" was an option in Windows 8 but not required and not loaded. Therefore when Microsoft upgraded my machine to Windows 10 they did not load "SMB" program.

"SMB" did not exist on Windows 7.

Hope this helps somebody

I have a set of scheduled tasks, all of which run programs written in Open Object REXX. Consequently, the Command Prompt windows where these tasks runs inherit their icons (at the top left of the window) from the rexx.exe program that handles my scripts.

This means that all of these REXX tasks display the same icon in the taskbar, or system area, which is unhelpful.

I doubt that there's any way of influencing the icon from my REXX code itself, but is there some sort of wrapper program that I could run, which would allow me to choose different icons for each of the scheduled tasks? Perhaps by running my REXX from some program other than a Command Prompt window?

I'll also go and ask the REXX community, so we'll see who gets there first!

I realise that this is something of a long shot, but if I don't ask, I'll never get...

You need to shrink the C: partition to smaller size, and then create a new partition in the previously used space - I recommend you use Partition Wizard 7 for this task. Refer to Option 3 here:

If you want to clean install Windows 7, then use this tutorial:

Hi Friend,

I have created one big partition of volume 100 Gb in 120 Gb Harddisk in FAT32 Format by using setup of Window XP but I formatted it in Window 98. I do this so that I can used this large partition in Window 98 for my personal use. But there is problem that I can not scan it under Window XP as it always show message " Do you want to scan Non Window Xp Harddisk?". After this message, it stop scanning this partition of harddisk. Due to this, this partition have many damaged files or corrupt files. It lead to hanging of this computer usually. I think that there should be any system setting in Window XP so that I can scan such type of partition in Window XP. Does any body can suggest me software to scan Harddisk without running Window XP Scan? I am very thankful for you about your suggestion or guidance.

How To Find Drivers:

- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

2-Your Iastor.sys driver is from 2007 and has caused virtually all of these crashes. Please re-install using newest.

I am not sure how to explain this, Up until last week, whenever I download something and save as to a folder, it becomes really slow and my brower freezes for 1 minute ish. I checked my processor and ntoskrnl.exe is the program thats taking most of the physical memory.

I am not sure exactly is going on. I did try to scan with malware and antivirus, but nothing showed up.

Any ideas?

A:Window becomes really slow when opening a save as window.

Hello Faering Welcome to the Ten Forums!

Quite annoying isn't it?! I run into that enough at times simply having a second browser window kept option. Suddenly everything will suddenly freeze up! I ran into that with IE 8, 9, 10, 11 as well as with Waterfox the first 64bit variant of Firefox as well as with Cyberfox, the latest 64bit FF versions, and other browsers as well not being a result of any malwares! At times between the host ISP and sites as well as the browser itself things will tend to bog down.

The download or other sites may be seeing heavier traffic at the time you go to download some new app and explain why a site is slow going. Your ISP(Internet Service Provider) could be seeing heavier then usual traffic as well which can explain slow downs as well. A combination of browser issues, slow down of host provider, and other sites put together is trouble!

Ever since I bought my laptop a couple of years ago I have had this annoying screen pop up every time the computer starts up entitled Avance AC '97 Audio Setup (4.70) Maintenance the window itself it reads....
Installation wizard has finished performing maintenance operations on Avance AC'97...restart computer now or later...I took it that this was a normal thing since it has done this from day one but someone informed me it shouldn't do this...what do I do to fix it? Also recently another tiny screen pops up each time I turn on the computer stating..can't prepare plugin...any cures available?
I have run both Adware and Spybot but these do not seem to help...
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Champs....

Just want a liitle suggestion and a feedback on my current query, which is as follows: -

A softwatre developed from our vendors on VB, & Access platform, has different Modules.
In each modules, there are some categories, and clicking on them opens a child window.

The size of the child window created in the software is not very comfortable in viewing the details, as the size of the window is prety small, say 2/5 of the parent window.

And, considering the Parent Window size as equivalent to that of the Excel file (maximized view), the view area for the child windows created is very small.

I am not pretty familiar with VB, and hence require a technical help on the same.
I think that the increase in size is possible, through reworking on the Forms.

Please revert with the possible solutions on the same.

I have a Dell laptop with W2K installed. It was working fine until one day when I booted it up it gave a black screen at the windows login. I was able to see windows 2000 professional screen during the boot up process. I have tried boot to safe mode, last known good configuration, connect the laptop to a monitor, got the same problem. If I use control, alt, del and put in my password, I can hear windows 2000 starts. Of course, I cannot see anything on the screen.

Can anyone give me an idea how to fix this please?

Thank you!

A:Black window at control, alt, del login window

Hmm, sounds weird. Do you have important data on your HD? Can you back it up? If so, back it up. Pop in the CD and do a repair installation (if it lets you). This should help. You may also want to try a fresh installation. How much memory do you have? It could be that you don't have enough to run Windows.

When using MS Outlook or firing up IE, the "Windows Installer" window briefly pops up, sometimes flickering (as if multiple closings and openings are occuring), stating "Preparing to install ... ". Then the box goes away.

From what I can tell, nothing has installed.

In MS Outlook, this behavior always occurs when I am opening an email. In IE it only happens when I fire up Internet Explorer.

The only thing that has changed on my system prior to noticing this behavior is that I have installed the most recent versions of BlackBerry Desktop Manager and BlackBerry Device Mananger.

Thank You In Advance

A:Window Installer window briefly pops up

Hi Machine13705

It's possible that the blackberry installations tweaked a Registry setting, or didn't complete their installations elegantly.

I'd probably try the blackberry installation again as a first try. Then try running a Registry Cleaner such as CCleaner (in case loose ends are causing trouble --- --- the "Issues" section of CCleaner is the one that helps clear up Registry oddballs).

If that doesn't help, for the Outlook behavior you can try Microsoft's suggested repair (in case it's the tweaked-Office Registry setting --- their quick-fix is a "Language version tool" that you can download and try, and they have two other possible repairs as well)

And, since you are running Windows XP -- you can always try the System Restore tool, using a restore point from just before you first installed the blackberry updates & the trouble started. You might have to reinstall the blackberry update again after this (but you might not! - it depends on where the settings are that were changed).

Last -- anytime you have unusual behavior from your system, it's a good idea to run some malware scans. Use the "thorough" or "High" settings.

Best of luck

I have upgraded my laptop OS from Window 7 to Window 10 when window 10 launched. Now message appear on bottom right corner than please active windows (Go to settings to activate windows). But my window 7 was genuine and it came with my laptop pre installed. Then how come Windows 10 become pirated.  I lost my Windows 7 produce key. sticker also not available. now how can I activate my Windows 10 . Microsoft online help center said that they are unable to active your Windows 10 without product key.
My Dell laptop model is Dell Studio 1555.

A:Window 7 genuine while upgrade to Window 10 than it becomes pirated

Microsoft should have your product key and information from when you upgraded to Windows 10.  It sounds like there is a glitch with Windows 10 and their license verification service and as such you would have to deal with Microsoft on that issue.  If Microsoft cannot or will not do anything about it, you will have to have your key in order to validate your license.  Dell will not have a copy.

Sometimes unpredictably when using the PC Windows XP Pro AMD Duron MHz MB RAM for a half hour or so and working in an open window could be IE Outlook Express Word or any application a dialog box will open behind in back of rather than in front of the currently open window I don t mean a pop-up window but a legitimate dialog box spawned by the current app This situation makes it impossible to move close or otherwise work in the current window which has lost focus to the dialog box behind it Since I can t see the dialog box I can t know what to do with it The only thing I have found I can do at this point is to press the ESC key in instead front New behind window opens window of current to close the dialog box resize the open window to about of the screen and do the operation again Then I can see the dialog box drag it into full view and complete the necessary operation Rebooting solves the problem for a while but then it starts again No error messages ever appear If I were using Windows or ME I would guess that I was running out of quot handles quot or resources but this is Windows XP which is not supposed to suffer from that kind of problem Can anybody help figure out what is causing this and what can be done to prevent it Thanks Frank D nbsp

I just receive my Windows 7 64-bit laptop and I encountered problems with Internet downloads. I've tried download using IE or Firefox and via the LAN and Wireless adapters and the results are the same - downloads always stuck in the middle at random position and cannot complete. I use Wireshark to capture the network packets and discovered that whenever the download interruption occur there will be TCP Window-Full sent over from the server on the other side and the local adapters respond with TCP Zero-Window then the download stalls. Then I downgrade the machine to Windws XP everything working fine, so I believe this is a Windows 7 related issue, any idea how can this TCP Window-Full /Zero-Window stalls download problems under Windows 7 be resolved?

Anyway, in the start menu OR in Control Panel....opening the Network Connections window shows NOTHING THERE!! Now in the past it has always shown my Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection which has the option of shoowing that it is connected or not in the system tray.

As I said Opening the Network Connections Window there is NOTHING there as if I don't have an Ethernet Controller, however, everything is working just fine.

Anyone have an answer for this one??

Hey everybody,

I have 2 questions. First I just reisntalled xp and my ISP is Sisna. I accidentally tried to install old sisna software that was for previous versions of windows. I removed all the software but for som reason now a window pops up about every 10 seconds to try to connect to the internet. It says Network Connections and I have the option to select "sisn". I want the window to stop popping up!! I even have the internet options set to "never dial up a connection"

The second problem is that it tried to load a plug-in into my system. Now whenever my computer starts up there is a message that says "unlicensed plug-in, please contact your ISP to update license". I have called sisna and they told me to remove a program from the "add/remove programs", but it is still coming up.

Hello Rembo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you could install a fully licensed XP Mode to have XP running on a Windows Virtual Machine.

About the only disadvantage is that it may run a bit slower as a virtual machine versus a normal clean install or dual boot.

Hi, I have just bought my dell notbook that come with window vista and 2 hard drivers - c and d.

i am now in a fixed cause a lot of my program is not compatible with window vista.

I understand that I could also instal another operating system in my laptop but I am not sure how to go about it. can anyone please guide me to the installation of the second operation system in my notebook.

I understand that i need to download a driver but what driver and where to download.

thanks a million for the help.

A:Installing Window Xp On Window Vista

Well, first we'll need to know the size of the C: and the D: drives, their names (such as Recovery or Restore) and how full they are.
Next, you'll need to ensure that you've got the DVD's necessary to reinstall Vista should you ever decide to go back to it (this'll save you a boatload of money).
Then, you'll need to have a copy of XP - you'll need a full, retail version to be fully able to install this (unless you've got an old copy of Win98, ME, or 2000 laying around to use with an upgrade. You'll also need copies of all the programs that you want to install.
You can get the drivers for your system at the Dell support site by entering your service tag number - but I don't know if that'll show XP drivers or not - maybe you can ask Dell support (via email) where the XP drivers are for your syste..

Then it's just a matter of inserting the XP disk, formatting your hard drive, and then starting the clean installation of XP. After that you'll spend a lot of time updating drivers and Windows Updates, then installing and updating your programs. Don't forget a good antivirus, antispyware, and firewall program (at a minimum) for your protection while online.

So I want to ask how can I change or deactivated the oem key and put the new retail key without the need to do a clean install. And if I can reuse the oem key for anothe build with the old motherboard linked with the oem key.

Tkns for all the answers and sry for my english.

A:Change Window 8.1 OEM key for a retail window 8.1 key

If you buy the same version you should be able to use the Change Key option on the System page. If your current install is the non Pro version and you want to move up to Pro, then all you do is use the Add features option to upgrade to Pro. You just type in the Pro key and it unlocks the Pro features. You should then be able to install Windows 8 on the old motherboard with the old key. If its a big hardware change you should really clean install on the new hardware to avoid driver issues.
