Apps / Software :: Mail And Video Apps Keep Opening In Task Manager After Closing

Apr 1, 2014

I normally only use 2 apps: the Mail and the Video, and even after I close these two apps, when I take a look at the Processes tab in the Task Manager, they are still there, there's no more CPU usage but they keep using Memory, which is usually a lot. So every time I want to actually close an app I have to open up the Task Manager, go to the Process tab and kill them off there, otherwise they'll keep using my memory.

Browsers/Mail :: IE11 Processes Keeps Opening In Task Manager

Apr 2, 2014

After I launch IE11 and then close it(with all tabs), then I open the Task Manager on the Processes tab and there are 3 IE11 instances still open and no matter how many times I end these tasks, they'll immediately open again, consuming my ram AND CPU. That's why I started using Chrome. Still, I'd like to know what causes this bug with IE11 in 8.1.

I open up my Live tiles screen on my 2nd monitor. When I open an app, say facebook. All is fine. When I drag from top of screen to bottom with my mouse to close the app, it goes to desktop. Is there a way for me to go back to the Live tiles screen?

Also, is it possible to have the live tiles screen visible all times on my 2nd monitor. I use Stardocks Start8.

Apps / Software :: Several Metro Apps Not Opening

Jun 18, 2014

The skype, weather, bing news, bing health & fitness, bing finance, and, bing food & drink apps are not opening. It will show the 'app start screen' but then immediately close. I've read several things can affect it like antivirus but I have McAfee the day I bought my Lenovo Z510 (almost 2 weeks ago) and all metro apps were working fine. I have my UAC on and already did a "sfc /scannow" in cmd (run as administrator). The last resort would be refresh windows 8.1 but I don't want to.

Virtualization :: Unable To End Task In Task Manager Win8.1 X64 And VMlite?

May 20, 2014

As my machine doesn't support SLAT in HyperV I am using VMlite XP mode to run some 16 bit programs I need. Very occaisionally VMlite hangs on close after it has saved state or shutdown the guest machine.

I go to task manager and click end task on the Workstation GUI and it closes but very occaisionally end task wont closed the program. Sign off wont close the program either and restarting hangs at the blue screen 'restarting' I have to push the reset button on the tower to get the machine to restart.

Is there any hidden way of closing VMlite so I dont have to restart, a sort of hard end task?

Substantial Slowness When Boots Up - Lag Opening And Closing Programs?

Apr 24, 2013

I have Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. My computer was running fine until about 1 hour ago; now there is more lag. Substantial slowness when it boots up, small lag between my typing and what's seen on screen, lag opening and closing programs, etc. I can no longer use Dragon NatuallySpeaking because the computer is too slow.

This is not due to bloatware or too many apps--It happened suddenly (computer started slowing down right away). I have not installed any new programs. I have tried both shutting down and restarting my computer.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 - Modern UI App Process Persistence After Closing

Oct 19, 2013

In Windows 8.1, Modern UI app processes continue to run after I've closed the actual apps. I don't know if this behavior is intentional or not, nor do I know of any way to prevent it. I know in Windows 8.0, just about all apps stopped their processes after you close them. So why the persistence now in Windows 8.1? Caching/speed improvement? Is this unique to my system or is there a setting that can stop this behavior? I'd test part of this myself, except I don't currently have access to my other systems at home.

System details:
Windows 8.1 x64 fully updated via Windows Update
All apps fully updated from Windows 8.1 store

Apps / Software :: Classic Desktop Environment - All Programs Closing Unexpectedly

Jul 5, 2013

I have a problem which started recently. The problem is that everything closes unexpectedly. I am using the classic desktop environment to use this system and all the 'apps' I use a classing Windows programs.

Randomly all of the programs that are running on the machine close down without warning (And I mean ALL of them, even explorer.exe). I know that this has not been caused by a recent installation of a program as I have not installed anything recently. I also checked the computer with an Anti-Virus software as that could have been a cause but there wasn't anything.

Apps / Software :: Mail / Calendar And People Apps Live Tiles Not Updating

Aug 27, 2014

For more than a week now, the above situation have been occurring. I have "scoured" the web and tried a lot of "solutions" and none as at yet have normalized my situation.

I am suspecting that I might need a registry solution, since I cannot refresh my installation- I upgraded to win 8 from win 7 online.

Also, the Skype app crashes almost as soon as it finishes loading and returns to the start menu. But, there is a sign it is still running and whenever you click on it, it trips off again.

I have uninstalled and re-installed several times, ran the apps troubleshooters many times, checked that the time service is running, synchronized this and that, etc to no avail.

My Mail Live tile do not have the option to turn on/off live update but the Calendar and People tiles have it yet none is updating.

Can't See Real Pics When Opening In Apps Such As Adobe Photoshop?

Apr 18, 2013

When selecting FILES and OPEN in apps such as ADOBE PHOTOSHOP (and others) all I can see is silly little fake pics instead of the real one. Very maddening and am unable to figure out how to change it in WINDOWS8. Seems to be a default fixed feature but I surely hope not.

Apps / Software :: Installed Programs Not Opening On New User

Oct 28, 2013

Basically I had the original "user" in control panel that I used when getting my gateway laptop and I decided to make a new user with admin privileges for no apparent real reason and then I ended up removing the old user account.

Once I did this, a bunch of programs that I installed with my original user account stopped opening, so I uninstalled them and re installed them and they still aren't opening. They just sit in task manager and don't open - is there anything I can do to fix this or is my best bet to reformat [which I could do, but I have a lot of files and I don't have a backup external apart from online which would take a long time to back up with cause of uploading etc].

Also I've attached my system info screenshot as well

Windows Apps Not Opening - Icons Move A Little When Clicked

Dec 1, 2012

My windows apps dont want to open, the store opens shows the brief case logo for a 2-3 seconds and it minimises when i click on it on it to open it again the same thing happens and all other apps dont even respond just their icon move a little on the sides to indicate they are clicked but they don't open at all.

I use windows 8 enterprise and it is activated, it happened before, one way to fix it but its annoying is to create new account and on it they work just fine, but the old one don't.

I can delete and it and recreate it but then i have to register some of my programs again. I read on the internet about that issue so my resolution is not the problem UAC is still on. I use windows defender for antivirus.

Apps / Software :: Get Error When Opening Excel Files Through Windows Explorer?

Mar 21, 2014

Whenever, I try double-clicking an Excel file in Windows Explorer, I get an error message that says "There was a problem sending the command to the program." I tried Microsoft's solution of unchecking the box under options that says "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" but it was already unchecked. I checked it and unchecked it and I'm still having the problem. This is using Excel 2013 with Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Cannot Open Folders Or Task Manager

Jun 8, 2014

Since yesterday, I cannot open any folder on my PC and when I try to open task manager to close explorer, it closes right away.

When I try to open any folder (This PC or Downloads for example) my background flashes black, then the task bar goes blank and then nothing happens. When I try to open the task manager, it opens for 2 seconds and then closes itself down. All my files are still accessible since I am able to still play movies from WMP and I can still search from the Start screen.

I do not want to format my PC just to get something like this working again.

OK, I've noticed that what's happening is, explorer.exe pretty much restarts every time I try to open a folder. And that obviously stops the folder I'm trying to open, from opening. What's happening with task manager.
