Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Programs aren't opening on start up!

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.)

Not sure if this is where this belongs or not. This should be a pretty basic question. On start up, Windows Media player, and Roxio both come up on the screen. Can someone tell me how to stop this? Thanks in advance, John

I have recently finished my new computer build, and it runs like a treat! The only issues I have is that at start-up, there is a delay before any program will open. My specs are below:
> AMD 8350 8 core @4GHz
> Gigabyte HD 7950 graphics card
> ASUS M5a99X Evo R2.0
> OCZ 120GB SSD
> Western Digital Green 1tb Hard Drive
> 16GB 1866MHz RAM
> Windows 7 64-bit
> 880W PSU

At start-up, all the programs listed in the start-up folder and MSCONFIG utility all finish launching a few seconds after logging in. However, I am not able to run any program such and IE9/Firefox/Steam/Inventor Fusion until around 20/30 seconds have passed, and the widget will not come up until the 20/30 second period. IOf I am to 'spam' the IE9 shortucut 10 times, after the 20/30 second period, 10 IE9's will launch immediately. I am completely baffled, and am wondering if anyone knows how to fix this.
 

A:Delay in opening new programs at start-up

What anti-virus are you running and is it configured to scan programs at launch?

If teatimer was running in the system tray that would explain this problem

The only luck I have had in the past reversing or fixing such problems was to reinstall/uninstall etc with teatimer turned off

Running windows as a repair disk might help

I see that there are certain things you're not supposed to stop from opening during start up, so I download autoruns. It opens up an incredible amount of programs. How am I supposed to know which ones shouldn't be turned off?

I don't want to leave it all on because it feels like it's slowing down the computer, and half of that stuff I don't even use anyway.

A:How do you stop unwanted programs from opening during start up?

You can close them down, and experiment by enabling them 1 by 1.

A fresh copy of windows doesn't auto run any application.

I'm trying to download Microsoft Home & Student 2010 onto my HP Laptop. It gets halfway through the installation & then says that it can't finish because it found another version of Microsoft already on my computer. I checked my computer, but it doesn't have any Microsoft listed as being installed on my computer. How can I uninstall it, if it's not listed under the installed programs list?!?!

Im sure this is a common issue but my programs in Windows will not open after initial start up The computer boots up into Windows just fine and everything up ideapad Laptop: not up. after start opening Programs Lenovo appears in order However if I Lenovo ideapad Laptop: Programs not opening up after start up. open any program such as Google chrome or a game it will not open at all and does not display an error message Sometimes if I quickly open a program while the computer is still Lenovo ideapad Laptop: Programs not opening up after start up. opening programs it may open briefly but sometimes freeze I am assuming it is a conflicting driver issue or program but no new hardware was installed This recently all started happening for no real reason as I had not downloaded or installed any hardware or programs when this happened Everything seems to work better in safe mode although occasionally some programs will also not boot up I've tried all the usual options such as a clean boot did not work at all system restore also didn't solve the issue tried Repair in the boot up tried opening msconfig and also tried running Malwarebytes and anti-virus software in safe mode and so far nothing has been detected Im not sure if it is a driver issue as everything seems updated and the laptop is relatively new and hardly ever used with only a few installed programs since its purchase I am running the laptop just fine in safe mode for the most part and can figure out what to do next Also since the laptop was store bought I don't have a Windows install disc to re-install Windows It was preloaded Im all out of options at this point Any advice is greatly appreciated Thanks UPDATE After a while I noticed that if I leave the system running eventually the taskbar and all the programs will disappear and ONLY the desktop wall paper is visible What is causing this

Hello,
 
Ive had Windows 8 for several months and not had too many issues.  Just noticed recently that some of the apps, like Mail, Calendar, People aren't loading when you click on them.  If you click on Mail, nothing happens, if you click on Store, it looks like it's going to load but then redirects you back to the apps screen.  Some of the apps work fine though like Skype.
 
I keep seeing info that having 3rd party anti-virus software might be the issue but I only have used Windows Defender since my McAfee subscription that came with the Dell Inspiron ran out.  I didn't have any issues with the apps while McAfee was enabled.
 
I don't use most of the apps, but I do use Mail and it's most just annoying that it's not working.  Help would be appreciated.

A:Apps aren't opening in Windows 8

Info and you could try the apps troubleshooter:
 
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/what-troubleshoot-problems-app
 
I used Thunderbird for an email client, did not want to bother with MS accounts.
 
It may not be a good idea to rely on Win Defender, just my opinion;  I installed Avast, when I was testing Windows 8 Pro, 64 bit and it worked fine.

My little brother was trying to download questhelper for world of warcraft and for some odd reason he clicked on Open with- Internet explorer. Now everytime he tries to download sometime IE starts popping up and closing out over & over again in a seizure like way. He has Window's Vista and I have no clue how to help him fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
 

A:Downloaded files aren't opening correctly

Use 'System Restore'.

Type Restore into the Start menu search box.

If this problem happened a day or so ago, check the box 'Choose a different restore point'. Choose the most recent date prior to the problem.

I have tried to open even viewer and command prompt neither one will open. I have tried in safe mode as well as in normal mode. If I am in normal mode for a little bit, the computer blue screens. I have tried to run other programs such as rkill and get errors that state environment could not be loaded. I am new to this whole forum and have looked at other topics, but do not want to follow those instructions due the idea that it may not pertain to this issue. 
Anyone have any ideas?

A:Windows 7 system Files aren't opening

How are you trying to access the Event Viewer and the Command Prompt, via the Search programs and files box?
 
If this is what you are doing, what happens when you type in the information in the Search box?
 
Have you used a registry cleaner?

Please update your version of HJT.
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Post a new log with that version.

Hi, this is my first post and im not sure if this is the right forum for my problem.
So I have this 6 year old laptop, I recently did a clean windows XP reinstall for it. After installing Internet, Graphics and Audio drivers, some programs still don't work. They either have graphics problems or they crash at start. Some don't even start up, although they are in the processes list in task manager
They work perfectly in my other computer also running XP.

Why don't they work with this one?

If you need any additional details then just ask, but also tell me how to find them.

Recently I've been having an incredibly frustrating problem. Whenever i close one of my programs, they don't terminate. You can't see them on the desktop or anything but they're still running according to Task Manager and other detection systems.

As you can see above, The program in question (Company of Heroes 2) was closed, but it still running. This also happens for an assortment other programs seemingly at random. (Also process hacker itself, ironically) If i attempt to end the process in Task Manager, it does nothing; attempting to do it on Process Hacker instead returns this:

A:Programs aren't closing properly.

Looking at the Speccy snapshot, the only thing that I can suggest is that it may be something to do with the Superfetch service.  There's a short article on Techradar - http://www.techradar.com/news/software/operating-systems/how-superfetch-makes-windows-faster-639643 - which gives a flavour of what it does - it also applies to Windows 8.

I am running a legitimate copy of Windows 8.
After I rebooted my laptop 3 days ago, when I open a program, it would take 3-5 minutes to load or it loads right away and once I click on the program it freezes and stops responding.
I have already ran virus scans, used CCleaner, AdwCleaner, MalwareBytes StartUpLite, ran hardware diagnostics and nothing works.
I ran my computer in safemode and all my programs came up and loaded fast.
By loaded I mean to be able to visually see it(GUI).
When I open something it'll be active in task manager but take forever to show up on my desktop.
This has been happening for 3 days, please help.

Before I start anything my problem is going to be hard for me to describe aren't programs blink Various responding and and therefore has been hard to find a fix anywhere If anything needs clarification let me know I'll try my best The problem just happened in the last week Nothing has been downloaded or installed except a few steam games There's nothing new Various programs blink and aren't responding and only some programs are affected Some are affected more often and worse than others The Problem The biggest area of problem is my games on steam Steam starts up fine and the games start up fine Once I'm into the games it starts When Various programs blink and aren't responding I click the screen of the game it sort of blinks and for a split second I can see Not Responding next to the title and if I check the task manager sometimes it says it in there too until I close the game down When I click at the same time as the not responding and when it blinks the blink is actually replacing the area with whatever is behind the game for a split second the desktop or a web browser and sometimes it acts as if I click the desktop or browser and switches to that It makes the games unplayable because it happens too often during play Sometimes the games even freeze and say not responding and I can't do anything except close it I've also had the problem in windows solitaire and excel It's happened a few times in Google chrome but almost never Because I don't really understand the problem and have never experienced this before I'm honestly not even sure where to put this I've put it on the steam forums but had no luck there yet I've looked for a fix but I've found nothing alike what I have I have run various cleaners and manually cleaned up my comp I've uninstalled and re-installed steam and the problem persists

I am trying to reinstall Adobe Creative Suite CS within Win using the special routine devised by Adobe I had been sailing along continuing to use CS first released in when a message popped up two days ago saying that because activation was now closed I had to uninstall the suite and reinstall it with special files that had been provided by the company back in I could no longer ignore Adobe that aren't delete but to 'programs' running Need be said to are I have tried Need to delete 'programs' that are said to be running but aren't to install the whole suite using the supplied files but there are a few problems within Photoshop at least So I have uninstalled the suite several times and tried again without full success My latest try has stalled as it is said that a program is already running I am now trying to use a Win compatibility setting in the setup files to see if this helps The general Windows issue I am raising is how do I delete a leftover folder that seems to be preventing me from doing another reinstall There is a folder Need to delete 'programs' that are said to be running but aren't called Adobe within Programs that contains just one subfolder entitled Adobe within which are two further subfolders that refer to Illustrator and Version Cue Only the latter has anything in it I have tried but I cannot delete the whole folder How this folder is preventing the latest reinstall is a mystery to me but I assume that this is what Adobe is talking about There are no programs within CS that are running in the normal sense I very Need to delete 'programs' that are said to be running but aren't much hope that someone can help me with this Previous installation attempts have been apparently successful but within Photoshop many image files pdf and jpg don't open properly Often a box will pop up naming a filename but nothing is in the box I haven't tried out Illustrator and InDesign Someone in Adobe Community says that I shouldn't be trying to run CS under Win but this is misinformed It is perfectly able to run it under Win And it was doing so two days ago

I had this same problem happen in January and was given awesome advice to fix with command prompt, but I cant find it because it was closed. It would not go online wirelessly (still dont) so I did a system restore, now it wont undo system retore, or bring up windows update or many other programs. I was trying to find the command prompt details that we're given to me 2 months ago with no luck. I am running windows 7 home premium.

A:did system restore and now certain programs aren''t working

Go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the CMD icon in the results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type chkdsk /F and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and restart your computer. Check Disk will run at next bootup and check any files.
Also in the Elevated Command prompt you can type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing files.
If you still can't connect wirelessly, go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc Right click devmgmt icon and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers installed.
What is the make and model # of your computer? On an internet computer, go to the Manufacturers support/download drivers site. Type in your make and model # and download the Chipset and WiFi network adapter driver and any other drivers you need from the Device Manager.

Hi this is going to sound v v simple question but something i have often wondered. If I look around windows 7 it is possible to see all the code and reigstries along with all their .dll's etc etc.

This is all open right?

So what is the difference between that and "open-source"

I mean without sounding like I have malice, what is to stop someone copying the code and changing it and giving it another name?

In other words, i guess my question is, what makes windows "closed and propritary" whilst linux is open - since ALL programs and OS are written on your hard drive for me to read?

Thanks!!

A:Aren't all programs open source? Windows allows changes right?

"The term open source describes practices in production and development that promote access to the end product's source materials" wiki quote.

That means anyone can make changes to the system to facilitate another function.

Microsoft does not allow that and they dont release the "code" for their operating systems to the general public making it more difficult to develop apps for it.

Users can change the configuration and some minor things but have no knowledge of the underlying code.

In other words if you had the proper tools and experience you could look at "Linux" code but cannot without major difficulties do that with MS.

whenever i try to open any program my computer ask's which program to open with maybe this is aproblem with my windows explorer

A:[SOLVED] Problem opening programs

This is most likely a virus, theres been quite a few cases recently... i have looked around for detailed instructions on fixing it, this is the best i can find in a short space of time:

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/exefile.htm

if you finish this (updating the registry etc) then i strongly advise a virus scan(specifically trojan) or posting a hijackthis log....

If you want to try change the assosiation using explorer then you can do it like this:
this may not be accurate i'm a Vista user and we dont have the folder options thing anymore =[

Code:
1) When in an explorer window click Tools->Folder Options
2) click the advanced tab
3) you should be presented with a list of extensions, check to see if EXE is there
4) if EXE is there then click it if not then create a new assosiasion and call it .exe
-> let windows associate it automatically
[this is where my memory is hazy so sorry if its inaccurate]
5) for the exe filetype click advanced/find the context menu options
6) find the "Open" command
7) change the command to run to "%1" (i think within quotes but i'm not sure it matters)
8) click ok on all the dialogues... and it should be okay
I hope you get this sorted if not post back,

Hi, I'm currently running windows vista and it seems like I have come across a problem. Everything was normal until I recently updated my Avast anti virus and Firfox. I'm not sure if I have picked up a bug or if this is a registry problem..

My problem is that whenever I startup and try and open certain programs such as Itunes, Firfox, Spybot, etc. they won't physically open... I checked task manager and they all show up under my processes but still no program. It seems like internet explorer is working fine, hence the fact I'm able to post this problem.

I have tried system restore to before these updates happened but still no solution to my problem.

Any help would be much appreciated...
Cheers.

A:[SOLVED] Problem Opening Programs

See if this helps?
Window Key+R and type MSCONFIG and hit OK.
Under 'Services tab', tick 'Hide all Microsoft Services' and then uncheck the remaining programs and 'Apply'
Then under 'Startup tab' - Uncheck anything not Microsoft related then 'Apply' and OK

Then reboot and see if that helps. Trying to see if a program or something else may be interfering.

Example:

Manager couldn t access my Add Remove Programs But naturally I could Add/Remove Programs and Device Manager aren't working... still access it through Easy Cleaner itself so I used Easy Cleaner to uninstall itself gt gt So for about a week now I have been unable to get to Add Remove Add/Remove Programs and Device Manager aren't working... Programs and I just today found out that the Device Manager under My Computer - Properties isn t working either The same thing happens with them both The computer is busy for a second like it s trying to load them And then nothing opens nbsp

Heya folks, my dad passed me down a Laptop sence he upgraded his own.

It was working fine for a little while, but all of a sudden, My Photoshop, Disk Drivers, Word pad When I activate one of them, They usually freeze up my computer and I have to manually reboot...except Photoshop CS3. That will open, but then freeze the entire computer when I try to open a new file or make a new canvas.

So, as you can imagine, this is really making the laptop useless :/ I prefer not to eradicate the whole thing, sence my dad just got done wiping it clean.

System:
Microsoft Windows XP

Version 2002
Service Pack 3

Computer:
Intel( R) Celeron( R) M CPU

Hello all!
Overall I think I have a pretty good understanding of computers but I am having an issue with my computer pertaining to opening programs that I just cant seem to solve.
It seems that every time I open a program f it sends me to the search window to find the program. Its not a big deal but its starting to get a little irritating. I am aware that I can set a program as the default program but it wont seem to let me .
If somebody could help that would be great!

A:(SOLVED)Opening Programs Search Issue

Differnt things can possibly be at work here.
First I would recommend getting and running both of these programs, to make sure that we arent chasing a ghost here.
They are both free.

When attempting to open existing documents/presentations by double-clicking icons in My Document files, the following happens:

Word documents attempt to open with Adobe
PowerPoint documents attempt to open in Word
Adobe documents attempt to open with PowerPoint
Excel opens in Excel
Publisher opens in Publisher

I can open all documents in their correct programme if I right click and select 'open with...'.

This is a new problem. I am using Microsoft Office 2003, which I purchased on disc in August 2005 and the Adobe software is version 8, upgraded 30.10.07.

Can you please give me any advice?

Hey, I changed the Default opening programme for .Txt files from "Word Pad" to "Command Prompt", I now cant change it back.
I've tried right click> open with > choose default program > word pad (this doesn't work seen as i cant select the "always use this program to open this type of file" box

This is getting to be a massive annoyance, mainly because i have no idea what to do from here, Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

We have a very irritating problem. One of our users has IE10 installed on her Windows 7 laptop. When she tries to download any installer program e.g. WinRAR, Firefox etc., she receives the dropdown bar in IE. She right-clicks the bar and selects download this file and saves it to her desktop. It looks like it downloads successfully, but when she looks at her desktop, the downloaded executable isn't there. This happens when she tries to save the file to other folders as well. We tried disabling her antivirus program to see if that resolves the problem and it doesn't.

Does anyone know how to resolve this crazy issue??

Thanks

A:Downloaded Internet Programs Aren't Showing Up Anywhere on Hard Drive

Normally the default download location is the User's Downloads folder and remain there until changed in Options of the Download Manager, available by clicking on the IE Gear icon to access Tools>View Downloads.

Otherwise to have a file downloaded to Desktop would require choosing Save As in the individual Download dialogue popup.

Hello. :3 So I was bored and wanted to use windows movie maker, but it wouldn't open and a little window just said error. I was thinking, "what if what ever program is being used to open it isn't working?" so I search the progam on the little start window and right click on it then i went to "open with..." and chose one. Then all the icons for all the programs on the bottom tool bar changed and then when I tried to open one it just said, "sorry (random program) doesn't support (random program) so it can't open." I've been trying to restore it to it's original state but nothing's worked. I can't even remember how i got on the internet! Can someone help me please? I'd very much appreciate it! Thank you! <3

I am on Dell Optiplex 780 running Windows 7 Professional. I recently obtained this computer from a family member. However, they could not remember the log in for it (when you first turn it on you go through ctrl-alt-del then are prompted to enter password).
 
 I tried Ophcrack, it said it was not able to crack any passwords.
 
 I also tried Offline NT Password & Registry Editor. This did not work either. I had a little bit of trouble with it- the username listed in the welcome screen was not one of those listed when I ran the tool. So, if someone is familiar enough with it maybe they can help me figure out what I am doing wrong? If not, some other way for me to recover or reset my password?
 
 Thank you in advance for your help.

A:Forgot pw- recovery/reset programs aren't working (Windows 7 Professional)

Use Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to enable the Hidden Administrator Account. Once that is enabled you can change the password of the the other accounts using the Administrator Account.

I woke up and as has been the case a few times in the last month or so my computer had some strange spyware stuff I quickly googled the fix for it and began to scan with MBAM however instead of finishing and letting me cleanup the problem it closed and restarted my computer On restart it had upon Most internet access. errors not opening, opening, Programs no giving or disabled taskmanager and registry editing as well as blocking any programs I was trying to run to fix it AVG MBAM Before fixing that I restarted in safemode and did a scan with AVG It found several problems and removed them On entering standard windows again the same problems persisted I managed to restore access to my registry and task manager but that's it so far I've been trying to diagnose and fix my problems for several hours Most Programs not opening, or giving errors upon opening, no internet access. but everytime i've tried a fix it hasn't worked Running MBAM works up until I hit scan It gets seconds into the scan then closes and whenever I try to open it again I get the error quot Windows cannot access the specified device path or file You may no have the appropriate permissions to access Most Programs not opening, or giving errors upon opening, no internet access. the item quot Reinstalling MBAM quot fixes quot that error but it just repeats if I try to scan again Most Programs not opening, or giving errors upon opening, no internet access. -I read that someone had the same problem and tried renaming the mbam exe to winlogon exe but this didn't fix my problem I cannot be entirely sure but it seems like I have no access to the internet on that computer I am using my laptop to post AVG will still run sort of but it will not update wont clicking scan does nothing I tried installing HJT for a log but it just wont run no errors or anything Renaming doesn't seem to help either I also tried using DDS for a log and while it does start it doesn't appear to actually be doing anything and it never pops up with a logfile I also tried using RootRepeal and it attempted to look for everything on my primary drive but it closed about seconds into the scan and any attempt to re-run it would give the same error that I got when re-running MBAM I tried downloading Vundofix but after changing the filename to vundo-fix exe it ran but discovered no problems Everytime I restart I see svchast exe and cvs exe and once I saw a name that I recognized as spyware but don't recall it exactly began with b like beriax or something I use taskmgr to close them as if I don't I get quot An error occured please report the following error code o the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware support team Error code quot as an error when running MBAM I also ran win kdiag exe and it sucessfully ran -------------------------------------------------------------------Log file is located at D Documents and SettingsCozy LemonDesktopWin kDiag txtWARNING Could not get backup privileges Searching 'D WINDOWS' Found mount point D WINDOWS hf mig KB KB Mount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSaddinsaddinsMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSassemblyNativeImages v TempZAP F tmpZAP F tmpMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSassemblytemptempMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSassemblytmptmpMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSCacheAdobe Reader Adobe Reader Mount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSConfigConfigMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSConnection WizardConnection WizardMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSDebugUserModeUserModeMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSERDNTERDNTMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSftpcacheftpcacheMount point destination Device max gt Found mount point D WINDOWSimechsimeappletsappletsMount point destination Device max gt F...

Everytime my computer boots up, I get nothing but a black screen and My Documents opens up. I've tried MSconfig multiple times with no success. I'm not really what you call a computer expert, so I'm not sure what else could be the problem. My Documents is the only thing that will start up also. I don't even see my background on the desktop or the start toolbar or anything.

Help?

A:[SOLVED] My documents opening at start up

erm i had the same problem, and i found out what it was, i think it might be the same thing, its happened because "Explorer.exe" may have gotten affected, or the original path has been changed?, once your computer has booted up, and your my documents has loaded, Hold Ctrl + Alt and press Delete, then the Windows Task Manager loads up, Goto, File>New Task (Run...) then a dialog should open up Type "Regedit" then search through:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Then look for a string called "Shell" double click then another dialog should open, in the field "Value Data" type "Explorer.exe", close regedit at the top of the "windows task manager" click shut down then choose Restart, after restarting see if that works, i hope it works it did for me! =] good luck let me know if it works or not, thanks!

My friend has a problem with her pc that whenever she starts her pc up, my documents window opens by itself. I tried to check via msconfig to see if there is an unwell deleted program that causes it but couldnt have a clue and didnt want to give damage to her pc.

I'm not sure if this where I should post this but here goes.

My Norton had expired and after reading several posts on here deiced I would uninstall it and go with Zone Alarm for my firewall and AVG for my AV.

Now here is the problem I am having. After doing this, everytime I restart my laptop now, I have a box open up with a folder inside it.

It looks as if I had double clicked my computer>click the c drive>clicked program files> and then and then click the folder name.

I have no clue why this is doing this after the change from Norton to ZA and AVG and also have no clue as to how to stop it from opeing.

Any help would be appeciated.

There are previous posts on this and also the tutorial on running DISM. The info on running chkdsk is not the solution. See below.

This is an issue caused by Internet Security Software that we are finding out. If you have any third party Internet Security Software installed, uninstall it and the error should go bye-bye.

Hi. This is a very strange problem but here it goes.

Once in awhile when I'm browsing the net, playing a game or pretty much doing anything some program opens. I never see a window but I always see it appear in the start menu for about 2 seconds and then it closes. I usually don't have enough time to react and click on it before it goes away, but one time I did and nothing opened (I could have been a second too late, not too sure)

If anyone know how I could find out what this is or how to solve it that would be really great because its getting very annoying!

Thanks

The wizard starts at start up, it identifies a infrared device. I have no device attached. I have used the do not prompt me again check box but it keeps coming up at start up.
I went to the device manager -Infrared device/unknown device properties, driver tab,driver details. only one driver file appears- C:\windows\system32\drivers\irenum.sys
I recently had to reformat all hard drives and reinstall windows and did all updates. I had a malware virus that attacked AVG and my foxfire environment. From my research it came out this year. my own stupidity let it in. All systems work fine now except this wizard pop up at start up. I do not want to remove the device from my device manager without some knowledge as to why it appeared there.

Did you try going to Device Manager and checking for the device with a yellow exclamation point. If so, highlight the device, select properties, disable device. this should stop the search for drivers.

Just some of additional details I can remember after Windows 10 Upgrade.
It looks so good at first, the environment...so cool... Until after 1 day,
1) I cannot play my music using "Windows Media Player"
2) I cannot "PRINT". Printer in my devices was gone. I re-installed it (Brother DCP-J100). And then it appeared in the devices as two copies: One with "Copy(1)" at the end. I tried to print, I cannot print. All were in "queued" all the time.
3) I transferred photos from my mobile phone to laptop via Bluetooth, all were "NOT SENT". I found out: I need to right click on the Bluetooth icon and then press "Receive a file". Ops, before this it is automatic.....
4) My greatest DISASTER: Above-mentioned: CRITICAL ERROR: Start menu and Cortana aren't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in. Sign out now. Seemed like I don't have another choice but to sign out. But I have signed in and out already more than 10 times, when will it be fixed??? I cannot use my laptop well. Just to reach you out here in forum am using my mobile phone to take photo of the screen and patiently typing....I tried to click my "Mozilla browser in the Desktop" it doesn't function. I's forced to use "IE" instead and I don't like it and my time is limited coz anytime now while typing it can crushed....

PLEASE HELP ME ON THIS...if this cannot be solved, please give me instruction on how can I rather go back to Windows 8.1...THANK YOU GUYZ in advance....

P.S. I can only touch folders in the desktop...to open the internet I have to find a file with .html and right click on it and "open through internet explorer" that's why i was able to type long statements here now,,,other than that - nothing

Try basic steps first.
1. Uninstall and reinstall firefox.
2. Uninstall VLC. I recommend you use Media Player Classic instead (You might want to grab CCCP), but if you are glued to VLC reinstall it.
3. Uninstall groovemonitor.exe and reinstall, but make sure it doesnt start on startup.
4. Try run firefox.
5. Try run VLC (if it doesnt work, try Media Player Classic)

This should just be a quick and easy answer. I made some modifications to my start up programs using msconfig. After restarting, I got this message. Should I just check the box and not worry about it? I didn't put it into selective start up mode before making the changes. Does it do this on it's own for troubleshooting purposes? Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Start up programs

Yes put a checkmark in the box and click OK. That will come up after you boot everytime you make a change in startup.

Hi. a while ago I used msconfig to remove some programs that automatically on startup but now I have noticed that close to all of my services and startup programs have stopped loading on startup even though they are all checked in the msconfig window. I have tried rebooting in diagnostic startup but I haven't been able to fix it. I used the admin tools to set some services to run automatically but it doesn't help Steam, Norton, and my other programs to run and many services revert to manual startup. I also cannot run any programs, the only ones that seem to work are norton scan and firefox. Wizards and the system restore tool won't open, I don't know what to do

A:Startup programs not running, programs not opening

Try and use Start up CPL to add the files back to start up

To use start-up CPL

Click Start
>Control panel
>>Double click on 'Start up'

When that is open go through the tabs and add the programs you want to load on start up

I'm running Vista 64 bit. Can someone explain to me how to turn on and off which programs I want my pc to start up at the beginning of each bootup?
 

A:Solved: Changing start up programs

When you click on the Start button, you should be able to type in MSCONFIG in there
Then hit Enter - then System Configuration box should open
Go to the Start tab and uncheck what programs you don't want running

So earlier my computer ran a chkdsk (it prompts me to do this everytime it reboots, and usually when i let it run it freezes halfway through, so now i just try and cancel it, but sometimes im too slow) and unlike all the other times, it started messing with a whole bunch of files today, doing stuff i havent seen it do before. then i log in, and my program list in the start menu is almost completely empty, as well as my recent program list. The programs are still there, they werent deleted. They are also still in the start menu folder, but they do not appear in the program list anymore. Please help :)

A:[SOLVED] Start Menu Programs Gone

I had something similar happen with my start menu when I hooked up a new DVI Cable. I was getting two screen and I guess rebooting and restarting and all the cold starts messed with my system and I ended up doing a system restore which didn't work. Go into your "msconfig" in the search bar and try a normal boot if you don't already have that checked off and see what happens.

Hi,

I have win xp pro and since yesterday I cannot execute any programs. it says I don't have the necessary rights. I have the same problem in all 2 accounts (one is an administrator account). I even cannot start any programs in the control panel. the only thing i can start are the prorams in the administrative tools folder. I thought that maybe i lost the administrator right and tried to create a second administrator account but it is impossible to create it as an administrator. I'm think I'll have to reinstall the system. But then I'll have to backup my outlook xp contacts and emails. Does anybody know where these are saved? And can I import them after a reinstall or what do i have to do? It's very important.

thanks a lot and sorry for my poor English
