Security :: BitDefender Won't Allow To Boot System Fully
Jan 3, 2014
I have uninstalled my synaptics mouse pad driver and wanted to boot pc in safe mode but then Bit Defender rescue scan menu pops up and gives me option to Reboot and Shutdown. I tried both options but all of them give me same result and bring me back to the Rescue Scan. I then tried to scan because I may have some sort of virus thats causing it but it says "Failed to load Antivirus engines" and now i am stuck and can't boot my pc fully. Why has this happened? I also installed an intel driver for my processor before that. The program has created restore points before installation of the driver but i can't access them.
I am running windows 8.1 64bit
My Laptop is hp dv7-3xxx
o.k. long story short before installing 8.1.1 in my real environment i tested it out extensively in vm. i found out that if you get past a certain point with the windows updates bitdefender will not install, if you install bd prior to a certain point it installs and works great even after you do the rest of the windows updates. How to get it installed and working correctly in a fully updated 8.1.1? i have eset smart security in, but i'd rather have my bitdefender.
I was at friend's house last night, and every time I'm there with my laptop and we all want to watch some videos, or listen to music to his xbox, it' won't work, unless I right right click on the file/s and click on "play To".
But when I'm at home the videos and music play to my xbox with out a hitch. Now this didn't start until I decided to try and change something firewall related. My problem is, I don't remember what I changed with these settings.
I have a .dll which I use to Show sort headings in all views (Win 8, File Explorer)?
I recently had to reset my Internet Explorer settings to remove Conduit Search hijacker. This stopped explorer7fixes.dll from working in File Explorer, because it was loaded into IE as an 'addon'. Now I cannot get it to work no matter how much I unregister and re-register the Explorer7Fixes.126.96.36.199 version of the .dll, and this is even after restarting explorer.exe/restarting/shutting down.
System Restore fixed this problem for me the last time it happened (I restored back to a time when explorer7fixes.dll was working), but it appears that won't work this time as my restore points are corrupted. Gives the error code (0x81000201)
I can't create a simple text file and place it on my C: drive in Win 8.1 - says that I don't have permission. The properties of the drive show that I do - full control, every class of user. Am I missing something really simple?
I have used System Restore in Windows 7 to automatically create restore points, but not so in Windows 8 or 8.1. I configured TASKSCHD.MSC for a restore point to be created at 11 pm weekly, but not dice. I just changed the time to create a SR point daily at 7:15 AM to see if a SR point would be created. In Control Panel, there is not record of the SR point, but Task Scheduler says the 7:15 point was completed successfully. However, I can't find it in Control Panel.
I have a new laptop (HP G7-2292NR) with Windows 8 and today I turned on the laptop for the 3rd time and I see in the bottom right corner Windows 8.1 Secure boot isn't configured correctly build 9600, what does that mean? I am so new to Window 8 that I cannot find a thing, I need specific instructions. This is a huge change given I went from XP to Windows 8.
i'm wondering how to change my language preference. i've followed the guides on Input Method - Set Default Language in Windows 8 yet i'm still having troubles.
when i install my windows 8 this afternoon i set my location into indonesia. so all of my settings was in bahasa. i've done as the guide said but in my "START", things like Music, Weather, Pictures and some others are still in their bahasa language. while others like Maps and Computers are already changed into English.
I previously got windows 8, I accidentally installed the German version, it took me about a hour to figure out how to change the language. Once I changed it, mostly everything's in English, but some things like the lock screen is still in German! this is getting pretty annoying.
After I restored to default settings in the bios , I get into this problem of bitlocker requiring the key to start. I tried to suspend bit locker but bit locker management is not available . OS is win 8.1 , product is Dell Venue Pro 11 Tablet.
When I tried to use elevated command to disable bitlocker , the system does not recognize "protectors" in the command line.
What am I to do? I am sick of entering the very long Key , each time I bootup ...
I typed in delete user account and followed the prompts which appeared to delete my only user account. Now at power up the user account still comes up and I have to backtrack to get to my Microsoft account to login. How to complete the delete of the user account?
My Windows 8 laptop (model is HP Pavilion g6-2210us) and for some reason it no longer boots. Here's pretty much in order how it went down:
-Windows 8 stops responding for no apparent reason -I force a shut down and try to turn it back on, thinking that would fix it -It starts loading Windows 8 up like normal, but it's taking an extremely long time to do it. -After a while (about 20-30 minutes) it stops loading it and just goes black, but the screen is still on -After this happening 4-5 times and nothing happening, I hit the power button 3 times to try Automatic Repair, which says "Preparing Automatic Repair" for 20-30 minutes, then goes black again
I think it may be hard drive failure but the drive gave no signs of dying, like slowing down, they don't usually just die like this. It's more likely to be just file corruption, but I have no Windows 8 disc, and I never knew I would need to make my own recovery disc. Anyway, I do know how to do the replacement of anything that can be replaced in most laptops, and I would probably just load up Linux or another free OS on the new drive if I need to get one.
How to FULLY disable history in chrome ? There is extension "no history", but it disables only simple history, but there still is things like "recently closed" and "most visited" history, and I haven't found a way to disable it ..
I have Windows 8.1 Core and Enterprise dual booted. Now, the real question here is, well I've read online that Windows 8.1 had finally added some of the encryption functionality of Bitlocker in a limited sense setup and turned on by default in all editions of Windows including Core - similar to how it does this with RT. The thing is on that point I've read about this, but no-one on the internet seems to know how to describe this functionality with more detail than just a mention of the existence of this.
Yes, I know Windows 8.1 is a brand new OS - so new that it won't be available to the normal public for another month and a half. And yes, I know, this RTM is still incomplete and when it will be complete within this next month and half maybe some of these new features (like the default limited Bitlocker as well as the Wifi hotspot functionality (which I figured out how to setup with Powershell, but there's no easy and normal way to go about doing this (how are normal people going to set it up? Normal people are afraid of Powershell/Command Prompt! Microsoft knows this - so I assume they'll address these concerns, and if they don't - there employees and executives must be smoking crack cocaine))).
But, what I'm getting at is this - is it safe for me to set up Bitlocker on the Enterprise edition/drive and let the Core edition/drive be as it is now? Is there a specific way I should go about doing this? If my concern on this is warranted - and it's a dangerous thing to try to do - which could have negative and unwanted consequences - than maybe I should just remove Enterprise, well if I should, then suggest that too. I like Bitlocker encryption for my more sensitive data - but I also like this Windows To Go feature as well. I would remove Enterprise if it's probably the best option. I am concerned of this too because I remember reading years ago that in reality having a dual boot setup of 2 editions of the same version of Windows (or just 2 editions of different versions) was/is actually something that isn't a good idea to have setup because it messes with the 2 versions of Windows somehow and drive C:, but I assume that as time has passed and technology has advanced maybe those issues that were authentic issues in the past might've been addressed with the new technology - but am unsure of this.
So, basically, the real question is - is dual booting these 2 editions of Windows safe in the new world of today with these new technologies - and if it is - is having the full Bitlocker functionality with Enterprise setup and having the Core OS setup as the main OS as well - safe?
I can't seem to get Secure Boot enabled on my laptop, the secure boot option is greyed out and I can't change it to enabled, my computer came with windows 8 on it automatically so I thought it would've been enabled by default.
This laptop will not shut down fully...basically when I ask it to shut down, it appears to do everything properly to the point where the screen turns off and the lights turn out....except for one. The power light goes from green to a pulsing orange. It's like it's only putting it to sleep because if I press a key on the keyboard it turn on almost instantly.
I should say that the person who gave me this laptop said she had this issue when she first bought it and couldn't be bothered to get it fixed (as you do). Also, this happens regardless of whether the battery is in the machine or not, or vice versa with the power cable.
I was thinking it's an ATK thing but then it did it with Win 7 with the official drivers. BIOS is also up to date.
I activated Bitlocker for my Operating system drive on a Windows 8 machine. But when starting the process I only can back up the recovery key. I have no dialog to choose how to unlock the drive. Thus even though Bitlocker is running, the PC can be turned and windows can be accessed by common user authentication. No password prompt appears at an early instant of the boot-process.
I am in the process of applying for a work from home job. I had to burn an Iso Image onto a DVD so that I can see if my computer meet the system requirements for the job. The DVD is burned successfully but now I cannot get the system to boot to the dvd... it instead just opens Windows 8. I have a brand new Toshiba Satellite running Windows 8 which is what I came installed with.
How to A UEFI System using VHD. I was able to configure A UEFI system to boot from two different partitions one Windows 8.1 x64 & the second was Windows Server 2012 Rd. I want to do the same with VHD if possible.
Didn't plan ahead Dual boot Windows 7 and 8. I only initially allowed 100 GB for my primary Windows 8 on a 2 TB drive. I'm hardly using the W-7 and now find myself out of space on the W-8 (C) I'd like to repartition to give (C) 1 TB and 1 TB for (D)
So, previously I had Windows 8 and a system image of that drive. I want to dual-boot it with Win7, so I replace my Win8 with Win7, and reinstall Win8 on another partition. Can I restore my Win8 with the previous system image, or will it affect my Win7?
I recently put together this computer from parts piece by piece. Unfortunately all these problems started on a particularly large upgrade including new motherboard, processor, heatsink, ram and gpu. So I'm not sure exactly what is causing this problem. Sometimes when I start up I get a BSOD, often a random cause, I've never seen any consistency. And that can cause up to 3-4 BSOD's in a row on boot up until eventually a system repair is attempted, which has to perform a system restore. After the system restore I get another one or two crashes before I am able to keep my computer on. Then a couple of days later, I might suffer the same bizarre chain again.
