I accidentally installed an adware called Rocket tab however I uninstalled it but after restarting my computer, I am prompted with the following error message. Now, every time I start up my computer this message pops up .
I often format my laptop and uses virtual machine as well. So I had a batch (.bat) file to change all windows setting through registry. This batch file also changes command prompt screen size, buffer size and quick edit mode. However this does not work on Windows 8 command prompt setting.
Registry use to change the setting are: - HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_System32_cmd.exe - HKCUConsole\%SystemRoot%_SysWOW64_cmd.exe
Just wondering is there any way to change the setting in Windows 8 using batch file?
I seem to be having a problem when command prompt needs to run anything as an admin.
This happens whenever it feels it needs to do so, like when setting a program to run as admin myself, or running an installer, like the setup for firefox (I'm in chrome right now, but I happen to prefer firefox)
Basically, whenever it needs to run anything, it'll open up to the user account controls window in this picture:
Upon clicking yes, it opens the command prompt you see in the left of the image for a split second, then closes. (it took many attempts to get a clear shot using printscreen, and I did edit it to have the UAC prompt in the same image to save space)
I'm guessing a manual regedit of some kind, as running any program is obviously blocked by the problem itself. (I cannot install any fixing programs, and anything that needs to run as admin to work is out as well).
I need to execute the command prompt as admin. When I try to do it the command prompt window doesn't open and there are no errors. If I run the command prompt without admin privs it works, but I then can't do what I need to do in the admin window.
How can I unlock my hard drive from my command prompt? If I can do it using it. Because I try the auto repair, refresh my pc leaving everything intact, but when I did that it told me that my driver is lock. How do I unlock it using the advance options that the Windows 8 cd brings?. It said something about boot bcd.
I had to enter Windows 8 in safe mode with command prompt to do something. After I did that, I pressed alt+F4 to exit the command prompt, so now I have a complete black screen with a cursor that I can move. I want to exit the safe mode now, to reboot again in normal mode. However, there is nothing to click on, alt+F4 doesn't work, ctrl+alt+del doesn't work, etc. There are some things that do work (for example win+P to connect a second screen, but I don't need that...). When I press the power button, it just goes to sleep. So I just want to get out of this situation. How to bring up command prompt again or shut it down completely ...
When Windows 8.1 was released, I upgraded my current Windows 8 installation. Overall, it has been a great experience. However, I've run into a couple of strange problems that I have never had before.
The first problem is, whenever I boot into Windows 8.1, my USB devices don't work right away (keyboard and wireless mouse). It doesn't matter if I restart my computer or have just turned it on. In order to get the keyboard to respond, I have to unplug and plug back in the cord. It's very annoying to have to do this every time I boot Windows.
The second problem is, while Windows is logging in, I get a UAC prompt. The UAC prompt says "Service Control Manager Configuration Tool". This prompt also happens every single time I log on, which is also very annoying.
I have checked my startup programs and have found nothing obvious that could solve these problems, but maybe I'm missing something.
Have these problems happened before? I really would prefer not to do a clean install since everything else is working perfectly and it's not slow at all.
i have a variety of apps in the startup folder which is set to launch on startup. eventually, i'd like windows to focus on Chrome (specifically on the address bar) so that i can start using it right away.
i remember there's a command which could be added to the shortcut properties but can't recall.
I get this RunDLL (Not Responding) message box every time I restart the computer. The rest of the message says "There was a problem starting C:UsersSHERRYAppDataLocalConduitBackgroundContainerBackground Container.dll The specified module could not be found." I have included a snip .png of the message box.
I will attach this information as a .pdf file, if interested. The files instructed to be deleted in the 'regedit' would not delete at all. And I still don't know if I was intended to delete the the entire folder with sub-folders, but since they couldn't be deleted it doesn't matter. These folders and the files listed in them did not seem to have anything to do with Conduit Ltd. A couple of these 'Regedit' folders were not even listed.
I got my scrolling wheel inverted due to powershell command i tried to check how it feels in the inverted way. but now i'm not feeling good and i want to go back to my normal scrolling. if i scroll down it should go down and up for up vice versa.
Am using windows 8 pro with the synaptics drivers on my sony vaio, but they are taking ages to load in whenever I reboot/startup my laptop.
I was wandering if there are any tweaks I can do to make it load into my system tray quicker. I dont have many things loading at startup so I cant see what the problem is. I would like it to load in first rather than last.
I am beyond the veil of anger with this. I believe something is wrong with my DirectX 11 on Windows 8.1. I would go to play certain games, and it would pop up an error message saying "Cannot Set Display Mode" or something similar to that. I get the feeling it's DirectX, as I had recently updated it, but did nothing to interfere. I have spent the last week (literally) trying to fix this, and everything has failed. I understand that DirectX 11 comes with Windows 8 and everything, but when Windows doesn't even realize that it's malfunctioning (DXDiag did not work, nor did the thousands of Runtime Installers I tried), something is definitely wrong.
New to windows 8. I'm connecting my wireless HP printer office jet 4500. I was in the process of downloading and installing the software and was stopped by this message. " Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before completing this install." Earlier I tried to install the software for an Iomega external hard drive that had crashed. It wouldn't work so I think I took the cd out without ejecting it. To the best of my knowledge there is no other installation going on. Where would I find out if a program is being installed so I can stop it?
I was able to print to my network-attached Brother 2070N and 3045CN laser printers until recently. Driver have been loaded, printers are discovered and added to the client, but every time I try to print I receive the message "Printer not ready". All of the Windows 7 clients can print to these 2 printers, it's just my 64bit Windows 8.1 Enterprise computer that cannot. If I can't get this resolved soon, I'll have to go back to Win7.
I have an computer machine called "HP Pavilion" with Windows 8.1 on it.
Every time I start my computer up, my computer keeps saying "Starting Automatic Repair" then 2 mins later the blue screen comes up with a face on it which it might be something wrong with the machine, then the screen goes blank and does nothing.
