Preferred Solution: Fast ring build stuck at "downloading"

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.)

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

The only build that I have received through windows update is 14931. I have posted at the insider community and tried numerous reg hacks, enabling and disabling windows update, deleting temp files, turning on and off fast ring. Some have said it's my hardware, and I am so frustrated I am considering a new rig. But that can be expensive.

I updated a W10 OS and I'm seeing something i've never seen before.
The Notification Area shows left and right arrows to scroll, and a large blank area in the right corner.
This is a W10 Insider Preview fast ring OS, updated to the latest offered.
It's a bare metal install, not a VM, version info is in the screen print.

Has anyone else seen these arrows with the latest Fast Ring OS ?

I like to see all icons in the Notification Area, all the time.
I've checked my settings, and i think they are right for me, and have always worked before this "fast ring version update".

Screen print 1 shows what i see with the latest W10 Fast Ring version.

Screen print 2 shows what i see with the latest W10 RTM version,
this is what i like and has always worked for me in W7, W8.x, and W10 - until my latest fast ring update.

A:Stuck on "Starting Windows", Repair Shows "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted"

Hi Stan, Hopefully I can help you out....or at least lead you in the right direction. From my experience, the symptoms you are suggesting sound like perhaps a dying Hard drive.

1. Do you have the windows 7 boot disks that came with your computer or when you bought the Operating System? If so, you could try and insert one of those and boot from it, and attempt to repair the installation. (this won't affect your data, only the windows system files).

2. If that doesn't fix it, you could try a fresh reinstall of windows 7, and see if that works.

3. If neither of those work, its likely that because of the fact that when windows is repairing itself, it is generally putting copies of its system files in the same physical location on your disk. Because your disk is obviously not completely dead, ie....its still loading to the windows 7 startup screen, its just copying files to the bad sectors on your hard drive and gets stuck when loading. This is especially my guess because you said Safe mode is having same problems, even after attempting to repair. In the past, I've tried and salvage a disk by reformatting it and only leaving on partitions which do not contain the bad clusters. This takes some time, and some guess work.....and really this is only a "bandaid" fix because once the disk has bad clusters, its only a matter of time before these things give out. You wouldn't want to trust your important data on it anyways....

I hope this leads you in the right direction.

Hey, guys and gals!

I've been stuck with the bugs of this build for some time and it was annoying at first, but still bearable. Now I've been getting the expiration warning and that's a big problem for me. I don't know if there's a newer build for the slow ring or not, and my system can't find any newer build to update to. I can't change to the fast ring because that's one of the bugs of this build.... I don't want to wake up on the 1'st of October not being able use my PC.

Any idea on how I can solve this or any info on the new build for the slow ring?

The latest Insider Preview ISO that you can download seems to the build 14342 (via https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewadvanced), and I don't really want to download the ESD from a russian site, but can't seem to find the correct MS site.

I think the "updates freezing" issue has come up in another thread and apologies if it has, but I can't find it momentarily.

The screen shots show what I've been looking at for two days now. Obviously something is amiss with Automatic Update but I dunno what, or what to do about it.

Any advice, help????

Mods, please feel free to move me to the other thread I suspect exists.

I've searched around the forums and all I can seem to find are people with one or two dead pixels (the absolute max I saw was 8). On the left side of my monitor, I have an extremely large amount of dead pixels. It's about the size of two quarters. It started out small (as a single pixel - then a single line - then a large blob). I've tried just about everything to get rid of it. I've tried massaging it out, using websites/software like www.jscreenfix.com, to no avail. I really don't have the money for a new monitor. Any ideas? Thanks!

Whenever I click on any of the options above, I always ends up back at the same screen, suggest the above options again. I've tried rebooting I again a few times but nothing works?

Any ideas?

I got on a crusade and finally got there! Kept wondering what the "Release Preview" ring looked like if you could get there from here. Here's how I spent my morning...

Installed VMware. Created a VM on an ext 3.0 and installed 10240, fresh from MS, using a NEW Outlook account. Let it go thru all it's gyrations and it upgraded to 10586.104. Activated it with original OEM key. Clicked "Get Insider Builds". Went thru some hoop-jumping, re-booted, and this is what I got. Guess it works....have to fire up the VM occasionally to see if any updates.

A:Release Preview "Ring" does exist!

As far as I can remember, that screenshot you posted has been in existence way before the " Release Preview Ring" was announced.

I don't think that is it.
There is no mention of "Release Preview" anywhere in that page.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look at this Microsoft article: How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

When the system file checker runs it creates a log file, which should help you pinpoint which file couldn't be repaired.

However, if you can't get into Windows you might want to check this tutorial: Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

Did your partner create a set of Dell recovery discs or does she have a Windows 7 DVD?

If all else fails, you may have to re-install Windows.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

I've let them run for over an hour & nothing happens. I have to hold down the Power button to turn off machine. Upon reboot the system say there was a problem during shut down do you want
to "restart normally" "safe mode" etc.. Now when I go into safe mode I can close down no problem. I have tried "boot to last known good config" doesn't help. I don't think there was a "restore point" made to go back to. Why is this happening & how can I fix it.
Thanks!

A:PC gets stuck during "Logging off" & "Shutting down".

If safe mode doesn't have that problem it will most likely be a bad or incompatible third-party device driver that's causing it, since safe mode doesn't load any third-party drivers.

Typically the bad driver will be the one that was installed last, just before the problem was first noticed.

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

A:Error burning DVD with Windows Explorer: "disc to fast or too slow"

Hi GregL,

Normally I would say that is because of media incompatibility with the burner (some brands just don't get on with each other), but reading through your post this can't be the problem as you're using the same discs and burner on both machines. The only thing I can think of at the moment is that the drive is being picked up by your laptop as USB 2.0 but only USB 1.1 by your desktop.

Has anyone had a problem with a computer that will not shut down completely after Windows 10 update? I have one and discovered that if I turn off the fast start option it will shut down all the way.

Curious if anyone experienced this and if there is a solution other than disabling fast start.

Thanks!

A:Windows 10 "Fast Start" prevents full shutdown

Fast startup puts the PC in a hybrid sleep mode instead of a full shut down. That's how it speeds up the next startup. It also makes it tricky to access your BIOS on startup on some PC's. I run SSD's in all my PC's and just disable it. It's of no real advantage to me as far as boot up times go. As always YMMV.

Some older Dell models had this problem. No remedy seemed to be available. Only recently, Dell have come up with a solution. There is now a Bios update for the particular model (Latitude E6510). After applying the update, the bios has to be set back to factory default, rebooted and set up again to your own requirements. This worked for me, with that particualr model.

In your case, forget the update for the moment. Try the Bios factory reset and setup only.

I've had my computer for a while now and always used the old version of Adobe Photoshop 2.0 as it was easy and I'm not one to move on to new things when the old things still work. My computer crashed last week and I needed to do a complete clean of the hard drive in order to get it up and running again. My PC is doing great now but I no longer have that old version of Photoshop nor can I find the disk or get it from Adobe. Does anyone out there have any idea where I could get this item? I've tried a newer version (6.0) but you need to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Thanks in advance for the help.

I'm in the process of setting up a new Vista x64 PC. As I continue to install my various programs I see that the "Factory Image" partition (which had very little overhead to begin with) is filling up alarmingly fast. Since this partition is protected, I'm speculating that the growth can be attributed to "System Restore" points which are being generated often due to all of my installation activity. As of today, the Factory Image partition has only 800mb of free space remaining.

As the file size on this partition continues to increase, will it effect the computers ability to perform a recovery? If so, should I de-select it in the recovery manager so that further recovery points won't be generated?

Any help appreciated!

When downloading I get the msg: "Run or Save" the file at the bottom. Many times when I hit "Run" it does nothing. I must hit "Save" then open Run at the next prompt. This seems to have started lately. I've checked security settings but all seem ok. What am I missing here?

A:Must "SAVE" first, before I can "Run" when downloading.

Hi welcome to SevenForums,

Also which security suite and any other third party utilities you have installed,

I want to download Microsoft's antispyware beta. But I've never downloaded anything before.I've started a few but I get confused when I'm suppose to click on "run" or "save", so I end up canceling. I'm pretty new to all this computer stuff but I was able to figure out that I can probably do either one. What I need to know are the steps to take for both. I hope I'm making sense. If not I'll try again. Thank you all for your help & patience.

Hi everyone!

I have several movies (.avi files) on my PC and tried to watch them. I played one with no problems, but the others show video with no audio. Right before Windows Media Player opens the file, it says "error downloading codec". I had WMP version 10 and checked the settings and they were set to download new codecs automatically. So I upgraded to WMP version 11.

With WMP version 11 it says "downloading codec", then "codec aquired" and it opens the video - no audio again.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
Whenever we download a file, we save it on different location. Every time  we need to click the arrow, side of the save option to access the 'Save As' option. So Is there any option/Group policy setting to set the default option to 'Save As' or replace
the 'Save' with 'Save As' ?
Thanks

Hey everyone.

So you all know the fishy download sites that do their best to make you click the wrong "Download" icon, and instead download something else. It usually comes with the same file name of the thing you originally wanted, but with an .exe format.
If this happens, I usually stop the download before it even finishes, but a few minutes the .exe was so small it finished before I had the chance - and even though I didn't click it, suddenly I get a Windows 7 "ESET GUI has stopped working" message.

I restarted the GUI and everything seemed back to normal, but the anomaly is obviously connected to the file. I'm worried it had done some damage within that window of opportunity.

How do I make sure?

Windows 7 64
Core i7 860 @ 2.8GHz
16GB RAM
Gigabyte P55M-UD2
NOD32 5.2.9.1, up to date.
Thanks.

A:Severe Downloading Issues and "Runtime Error: Floating Point Support Not Loaded"

The file npswf32.dll is for Flash, but my copy is named npswf32_11_6_602_180.dll & dated 3-12-2013

errors like "floating point support not loaded" are created in two ways:
1) the floating point library can not be found
2) the program attempting to load it is not the correct version for your hardware platform.

Your system integrity is questionable (ie likely to be infected), but I would first investigate the Eventlog using Eventvwr.msc and look for errors in the System Log.

Highly recommend you run SFC /SCANNOW (but you will need your install CD or to borrow one from a friend - - it must match your currently installed system).

A:High CPU usage by process "System" when downloading

It would be very difficult to know what the problem is precisely, but I would suspect that the problem is caused by some program that you commonly use (not PE), that is related to internet activity, or more specifically downloading. I would create a list of such programs, disable them all, and see what happens. If the downloads can then be performed normally, reinable each of those programs, one by one, until the culprit is found.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

A:Windows 10 - "Get going fast" Loop

Try an ordinary sata drive to do a fresh install. Maybe the SSD is dead or near to.

Hi i m having "AGP Problems Write" Fast with troubles enabling the quot AGP Fast Write quot -Option in Bios After upgrading my ati to ati x everytime i installed the catalyst drivers the system crashed after reboot directly after switching from the win k-logo to the login-screen - bad graphical errors followed by black screen I first thought it was the graphic-card itself but it s properly working in a friend s system with the same mainboard After suspecting my PSU Problems with "AGP Fast Write" i talked to my vendor who guaranteed that the PSU was working properly in much more consuming systems than mine So i checked the bios properties and disabled the quot AGP Fast Write quot -Option what made the system boot without any problems If I now turn it on system crashes again What may that cause is it a damage on the motherboard AGP-Slot May it be the bios fault System CPU AMD Athlon Mainboard ASUS K V-X Memory Corsair Select Kit x PSU W OS Win K Greetz nbsp

A:Problems with "AGP Fast Write"

ATI recommends turning FastWrite OFF.

This is a known issue particularly with ATI cards. Just leave fastwrite off.

I know that it's like a cross between hibernate and shutdown, but it seems to be leaving my computer "on" for eternity unless I unplug the power. I know this by checking "Uptime" in task manager, and it seems to be going on and on and on, even when I check after shutting down. A friend on Skype also tells me that I was online throughout the entire night I was sleeping, even though I shut the computer down.

Not having it shut down when I want it to shut down makes me slightly uncomfortable, especially if it's consuming electricity non-stop heh

Hi,

I'm new to this forum, this is my first post. Disclaimer: I only have very basic computer skills....

My problem is that whenever I get error messages everytime I try to play music on my computer. My control panel, sounds manager says that there is no device. It is greyed out. I have an hp pavillion a520n....I tried downloading a driver update...realtek something or other.... I also tried downloading a new driver from realtek's website. Nothing I do seems to help and I'm not sure what to try next.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
 

A:"no sound device"- tried downloading new driver

try this update worked for me;

Hi there,

Hopefully you did not take that driver from windows update?

Never take drivers from windows update unless they are intended for
Microsoft hardware.

If an updated driver is needed because the hardware does not work proper go
to the manufacturers website to look for an updatede driver.

If it ain't broke: do not try to"FIX" it.

If you did take the optional drivers from windows update try booting last
known good configuration, rolling back on the driver or use system restore
in safe mode prior to a date of the problem or restore from the full system
backup you hopefully made.

Assuming you are using Windows XP: here you can see how to roll back on a
device driver:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/driverrollback.mspx
You can disable the update appearing when automatic updates is set by going
to the windows update website and unmark (hide) driver in question.Click to expand...

I'm not sure if the title is the exact wording, but while downloading several zip files I tried to speed up the process so I unchecked that little box. Well, now when I download the zip files it doesn't allow me the option to open/save/cancel and I'm not able to put the zip file where I want it--it goes into some temporary file where I'll never find them.

In short, how do I restore the setting that will bring back those options for me? I hope I'm making sense! Thanks!
 

A:Restore "always ask when downloading this type of file"

try:
Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types -> Zip -> Advanced -> check Confirm Open After Download box

I downloaded a movie and when I tried to play it with WMP I got a message
" The Video/File you have downloaded needs additional codec. Install free codec to watch the video. License.v.3.exe File size 70Kb

Is it safe to download and install it?
 

A:Is downloading and installing " License.v.3.exe" safe?

Sounds like a trap to install male-ware
