Apps / Software :: Programs Appearing Twice In Task Bar?

Aug 24, 2014

As you can see in the picture when I open a pinned program it doesn't extend the icon but creates a new icon in the taskbar. This is not happening with all programs like Opera, but iTunes and Skype are both prone to this problem.

Apps / Software :: Task Scheduler Won't Start Various Programs On Startup

Nov 16, 2013

For example it starts SpeedFan without any problem, and with same settings, or even in the same Task, if I add for example other .exe software like FTP server software Gene6 FTP Server it simply doesn't start for any reason and nothing happens and it has to be started manually by mouse-clicking on .exe each time computer is booted up.

On Last Run Result column it says 0x800702E4. And it gives various 0x results for various programs that don't run.

Also simply dragging shortcuts to Startup folder don't work either. But like I said, not all .exe programs, some work and some don't, just like 50/50 I simply don't get it.

I use Comodo Antivirus and ZoneAlarm firewall, but all those programs I need has 100% permissions granted.

Gaming :: Stopping Power User Task Menu From Appearing

May 15, 2013

I am having trouble with a few games that require a substantial amount of right-clicking during game play.

At some point, the mouse will be (in game) but hovering over the bottom left corner of the screen, at which point the Win-X menu launches and kicks me out of the game and back to desktop.

Is there anyway to forcibly disable this menu totally, or to make sure it doesn't activate during full screen games?

Task Manager - Startup Programs Not Populated At All

Jul 12, 2014

Just found out that when I go to Startup items from Task manager and msconfig, Startup is not populated at all. All the items set to start are working and visible, just no listing in Startup for any. System scan including Dism comes up clean as a whistle and so is malware detection. Haven't checked since newest updates but can's see a reason for them to do only that.

Apps / Software :: Missing Some Programs In Programs And Features?

Apr 2, 2014

Recently my mom visited a website that tricked her. She downloaded and installed some stuff she didn't need. I removed the stuff but noticed some other problems. I'm not sure if these are new problems caused by the useless stuff she installed.

Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features is not showing all installed programs. Oddly, the only listed installed programs have names that start with the letter M. 14 programs are listed. See picture. Start Menu -> All Programs -> I suspect some programs are missing. I have a Win 7 style Start menu because I am using IObit's Start Menu 8 program. Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools was empty. I fixed that by using SFC /SCANNOW.

I tried using System Restore to go back to an earlier date, but that didn't work. In the process of trying to do that I discovered that BitDefender Internet Security 2014 doesn't get along with Windows 8.1's System Restore feature. I uninstalled BitDefender and successfully went back to an earlier date but still had the same problems with missing programs. I undid the restore. I created a new Windows user account. The new account had the same issues: missing programs in the Start menu and Programs and Features menu.

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.

Apps / Software :: Retrieve Some Of Programs And Apps That Reset Removes

Sep 12, 2013

I have Office 2010 which came preinstalled on my Dell 8300 XPS. I have the key and have recovered the program in the past.

If I Refresh my pc, and find the folder Windows. Old, can I get the Office program out of it or do I have to download from a site and install again?

Obviously I don't know what is in the folder nor what it allows you to retrieve . I do know that when done with it you can delete it.

I can retrieve some of the programs and apps that refresh removes and that is not hard to do. Perhaps I just open the folder, locate the program, and copy and paste it or click 'reinstall'.

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?

Access Run New Task / Create New Task Dialog Box Directly?

Jan 14, 2013

Not sure if this is the right board, but I'm keen on accessing the aforementioned box directly rather going through task manager due to the run as admin check box, but I can't find the file location. I prefer using the run dialog usually to access apps because I could do without extra effort to merely SEARCH for apps. However I can't use it to run apps as admin (at least I've forgotten the line I might have used in vista and 7). Can the aforementioned box be accessed directly?

Apps / Software :: Win 8 X64 - Some Programs Won't Run?

Oct 1, 2013

I'm on win 8 x64. I just did a fresh install and got all the updates. Everything seems fine except there r a few programs that I can't get to run. These programs install with no errors but when I try to run them they won't open. These programs worked before so I know they're not the problem and they're all legit. I emailed the support people but haven't heard anything yet.

Ashampoo burning studio 12. The compact mode runs but the normal mode fails

Coffeecup HTML editor v12. I get an error when opening it and have to close the program.

Farstone Total Recovery Pro. When I try to run it nothing happens and it doesn't show in task manager.

p.s. I tried all the compatibility, run as administrator options etc. also ran sfc and got no errors

Win 8.1 Preview - Apps Or Programs?

Jun 25, 2013

Microsoft Talks About How Windows 8.1 Preview Will Work

On x86-based Windows systems, both Windows Store/Metro-Style and Desktop apps will need to be reinstalled.

Because some folks I talk to these days are mixing "apps" and "programs" into the same bag, I want to clarify something ... per the above quote, if I

1) install 8.1 preview; then,

2) install a program (not an app from the app store), like Photoshop ...

Will I have to re-install that program once I update to 8.1 RTM? Or, are the re-installs associated only with apps downloaded from the store?

Windows 8 All Tiles Apps And Programs Have Disappeared?

Jun 23, 2014

Yesterday I was watching a video on YouTube no problems when all of a sudden it shut down and didn't want to load back up, after clicking the shortcut on the desktop a dialogue window popped up saying that 'this program isn't in this location' (or something similar) and if I wanted to delete the shortcut. Thinking nothing much of it I rebooted my machine.

After rebooting, some of my tiles were missing and the rest of the tiles had a small black 'X' on the corner, I couldn't open any of my apps and searching for them resulted in the icon popping up in the charms bar but was unable to open them. Literally 20 seconds later all of the tiles disappeared, the charms bar stopped working and the whole screen looked completely blank.

One more reboot later and I have no tiles on the main start screen, no tiles when I swipe down to all apps, no search results for control panel or task manager, the charms bar works but all I can do is access my WiFi network, volume and screen or search.

The tablet is a Dell Latitude 10 ST2.

Here's a few photos
