Losing Permission To Registry Entries?

May 29, 2014

I support an older piece of software(vb) and am running into a lot of issues on windows 8 not seen on windows 7.

Our software installs some setting etc hkeylocalmachine >software>wow3264>our program>folders etc>>>

One of the issues is some machines seem to randomly lose their data values or revert to an older value(for example a data folder will switch from the network to the default location. Another example is a license code being deemed expired. Often a perfectly valid license will no longer be valid. The user is prompted to enter a code. If I enter a new code it still says expired. The fix ive used which is annoying is running the program as admin and applying the license code- Normally if the user then opens the program as the user after this it will work but they will again lose the value.

Always running as admin is not really a fix because then user cant see their printers or mapped drives in windows 8. And that is something I am not really supposed to support too often. They don't want me to be their tech support.

how this is happening, is it UAC? My guess is when the user installs it asks for admin, the users clicks ok and it installs. But then I dont understand why it works for a while and then quits.

Windows 8 Pro 64bit - Registry Entries Pointing To Wrong Folder?

Nov 19, 2012

I'm running Windows 8 pro 64bit on a self-build.

I was looking through the tabs of Autoruns and under the tab KnownDLLS it is showing that 3 DLL's loading via the Registry are not in the folders addressed - details are:

HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerKnownDlls

_Wow64 File not found: C:Windowssyswow64Wow64.dll
_Wow64cpu File not found: C:Windowssyswow64Wow64cpu.dll
_Wow64win File not found: C:Windowssyswow64Wow64win.dll

These DLL's can be found in C:windowssystem32.

I've looked at what Wow 64 does @ WoW64 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

why the Registry entries are pointing to the wrong folder?

Should I copy the Wow62 DLL's to C:Windowssyswow64 or change the Registry entries?

Adding Entries In Boot Menu

Jan 30, 2013

I made two install of win 8 : one is enterprise , the second is pro with the free mc key and one of kubuntu that are well working . i used a drive with every os , with the others not connected to prevent errors and be more easy to select the one i want to boot .

By now I would like to clean my efi boot partitions because after testing ubuntu and removing it for kubuntu , I have two entry for them while one is no longer valid . I also would like to select between the two win8 without having to get in the bios . One thing that is weird with ebcd, it does not see my two windows 8, may be because they use the same loader name or file .

At last, how to turn win8 vga menu selector to the text one used by win7 . i ll be glad .

Unable To Remove Old Entries From Run Dialog Dropdown

Sep 15, 2014

I am having a problem where some documents that used to be on a drive appear in my Run menu dropdown/autocomplete in Windows 8.1 even though I never I never accessed them from the Run menu and the drive in question is no longer even mounted. I searched far and wide and tried many things, but none worked:

Clearing the two "Store x..." checkboxes in "Jump Lists" in the Taskbar and Navigation properties pane has no effect. It does clear my primary history, but the offending entries remain.RunMRU in the registry (generally offered as a tip for clearing/editing the history) does not contain these entries. Removing the whole RunMRU subtree acts more or less the same as #1.Oddly, when I type "X" or "X:" in the run box, but if I change it to "X:" (or enter any more of the relevant path, e.g., "X:document.txt") they no longer show up even though they theoretically match.I have searched the registry pretty thoroughly, including using third-party tools to search binary data.

I found one or two hits, but not all of the relevant data, in ".../ComDLg32/OpenSavePidMRU" and a "RecentDocs" area, but removing them had no effect. Note that some of these hits were plain text and others were binary with null values in between every letter.I've done searches of all the files under C:WINDOWS, with no hits.I have confirmed that the offending drive/directories are not set to index using the Windows Indexing Service, even when the drive is mounted. I have also reset the Windows Index, and they still appear when the index is empty.One of these directories appeared under "recent places" in Explorer. Removing it had no effect.Remounting and than unmounting the original drive has no effect, even though some of the files that appear in the Run dropdown no longer exist.

Windows 8 Apps Screen Too Crowded - Removing Entries?

Aug 13, 2012

After using Win 8 for about a month ,there's one thing that really annoy me. When i install a program from the desktop screen and then go to the metro/modern screen, i end up with all kind of icons. For example i have the program icon then there are the ones for read me, release notes ,website and others. For one program i had eight icons. I know that we can have the same things on the desktop screen but at least there, they are easy to delete.

I find that to remove those entries on the apps screen i have to go to the program folder and delete them and then go to the apps screen to delete them. If we end-up with lots of icons on the apps screen we better get ready for scrolling the screen a lot to find the program we want. Also, when we click the program icon it bring us to the desktop screen. So, i think that for the apps screen there should be only the program icon there and nothing else.

Maintenance :: System Tray Icon Entries - Can They Be Cleaned / Removed

Oct 23, 2013

I was recently installing and checking out Window 8.1. Everything is going just fine and with stuff like Start8 and Modernmix i personally feel i can maintain my old and preferred workflow (so, for the rest i can enjoy any new features that are now available!).

Anyway, as i was installing some of my software (and migrating settings from Windows 7 for some of them)... i came to some game launcher i use for Arma 2 called PlaywithSIX.

I had to install it a few times and the update mechanism was a bit fishy imo. For example; i could not even select where i wanted to install the applications (no extra options nothing), it just went straight into my Program Files folder.

After my install debacle i decided to make sure the system tray icon would always be shown and configure it when i stumbled upon the following:

Appearantly the app made several system tray icon entries, for having been started from several locations.

Is there any way to clean these entries in regedit somewhere or something? I hate having double entries in there for no reason....

Audio :: Duplicate Sound Device Entries In Volume Mixer

Jan 1, 2014

Basically I have an ASus ux301la (zenbook infinity) and i noticed that after installing Displaylinks software (port replicator software) my default sound device was called (USB AUDIO) and that my Realtek sound device kind of went missing (no sound devices on the playback tab in the sound settings). I had no backups at teh time as its a new laptop and i really dont want to re-install 8.1 from scratch as it took me over a day to configure this thing to my personal config.

So I uninstalled the diplaylink software and uninstalled/reinstalled the sound drivers from the asus site and each time i did so it would create a new sound entry, hence all teh duplicates. Now i still have a problem because although sound works, i have to manually select the correct playback device in VLC player and I cannot see any sound devices in the playback tab on SOUND settings.

Upgrade To Windows 8.1 - Multiple C Drive Entries In Navigation Pane

Nov 2, 2013

I recently connected a SATA HDD to my computer to retrieve files from another computer (mother board died). Now I have multiple entries on my navigation pane for My Computer and C Drive. I have attached a screenshot of my Nav Pane: Click on Prints Phil, This PC and S3A7083D005(C) all get a list of the same (desktop, favorites, documents etc). C Drive got itself renamed to a string of numbers and This PC did not exist before either. My computer's name was Sneezyphil.

I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 two days before I plugged in the SATA HDD so there was no previous restore point unless I reinstall Win 8.1 - but looking at your threads on that issue, might multiply my problems.

Is there a way to re-manage my Navigation pane?

Win 8 64 Bit - How To Upgrade Without Losing Games Collection

Jul 30, 2013

want to upgrade from windows 7 ultimate 32 bit to windows 8 64 bit. I'm not sure about this, as I'm afraid I'll lose my game collection. I have some Games and MMOs, on local disk D. I keep all my programs and windows files on disk C. I'm OK with losing my programs, I have backup DVDs for all of them, but Games.. my internet is slow, so redownloading them will take weeks, if not months. I could back em up on my relative's HDD, but I want to know if that will be necessary.

Setup Installation :: How To Move OS To SSD Without Losing Data

Feb 20, 2013

I have brought a Dell Inspiron 17R SE. It came with a 1.5TB HDD With a rotating speed of 5400 RPM. As the day is passing the Laptop is becoming slow and slower. So I have thought to buy a Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD and install it along with my HDD. So my question is that is there any way to move all the files from my C: drive to that SSD and make that SSD as boot drive without losing all my files. Then my 1.5 TB HDD would be my data storing drive.

Hardware Drivers :: C Drive Losing Memory - 70% Used Up

Aug 25, 2013

I have a question about my C drive.

I started noticing about a week ago that I was slowly losing memory in my C drive without me using it. In other words, it is disappearing. I have seen this before on several windows 7 computers, but I don't know how to solve this problem when I'm running windows 8. (I'm running it on a 128 GB SSD HP spectre.) A few days ago I had 4.79 GB free. Yesterday I had 4.67 GB free. This morning I have 4.66 GB free. All this while I have not saved anything onto my computer, installed any updates, etc.

Furthermore, when I purchased this computer a year ago, it already came with about 70% of the C drive used up. I assumed it was bloatware that was taking up the space and have since given up on removing it, but I'm growing suspicious that it has something to do with the disappearing memory.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 - Keep Losing Internet Connection?

Mar 22, 2013

My laptop keeps losing internet connection. It appears to remain connected to the router but not have actual internet connection. I have pinged the router thousands of times and have no packet loss so I don't suspect that is the problem. I've tried the internet connection on a computer running Windows XP, one running Windows 7, and one running Mac OS X and none of them have trouble staying connected, so it appears to be a problem only with this laptop.

Network / Sharing :: Losing Wireless While On Hdmi With The Lid Closed

Feb 15, 2014

When I am using hdmi as the single display, I am losing wireless when the lid is closed. Closing the lid is arranged to "do nothing" on both battery and plug. Wireless becomes:

- Not able to see any wireless networks except the only one chosen as " automatically connect" and it cannot connect to that either.

I got so upset, changed a few settings in adapter settings, messed stuff up, so had to install the OS again.

Is that something normal that wireless acts up when the lid is closed on hdmi display? It never did this without the hdmi.

Now I am using it with the lid open.

Win 8.1 Pro With Media Center 64 Bit - Losing Internet Connectivity (IP Address)

Feb 19, 2014

I am having an issue with my Windows 8.1 Desktop (win 8.1 Pro with Media Center 64 bit) in that it is losing the IP address several times a day, which stops any browser from working. I fix this by entering "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" at the cmd prompt & restarting, but this is only temporary. For the past couple of days this has been occurring at 9am and 9pm. but for the prior week or so it was 12am or 6am. I can't work out what is causing this. This behavior began on 2/2 but no updates were done on that date. In the event log I find 4 event corresponding to the times I mention:

Error Service Control Manager
The Base Filtering Engine service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3 time(s).

Error Service Control Manager
The Diagnostic Policy Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 120000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

I have done a full scan with Trend Micro but no virus or malware is detected.

Hardware Drivers :: Bluetooth Mouse Keeps Losing Contact With Laptop?

Jul 30, 2014

I can install and use any of two bluetooth mice (Dell PU705 Travel mouse or Samsung S Action mouse ET-MP900D) on my Lenovo Ideapad Z710 laptop. This works fine with either mouse for an average of 20 minutes (varies) then it loses contact with the laptop and its back to using the touchpad. When I go to the Bluetooth settings page -- "Manage Bluetooth Devices", the control suddenly reappears on entering the page with no further action from me. The recovery of the device like this happens on no other page, to my knowledge. I have a phone and a tablet paired with the laptop on bluetooth and they stay paired. I have installed the latest Lenovo bluetooth drivers with no improvement. It appears that the mice are still connected but not responding to the laptop until they get a small 'kick' when I return to the Bluetooth settings page. New, full strength batteries are installed.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 - Replacing Laptop HDD Without Losing Any Files

I got an HP laptop last year pre-installed with Windows 8 and I want to install a new HDD. How do I go about doing this and not losing any files? So far all I know to do is to create a system disc from the recovery manager, and then a recovery file on an external drive. Does this cover personal files or do I need to back those up separately?

Windows 8 - Need Admin Permission After Upgrade

Dec 15, 2012

I'm stuck. I ran Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant prior to installing Win 8. According to the report I needed to delete Intel(R) Pro Network Connection 12.1.12, which I did.

I upgraded to Win 8 but now I have no permissions. I'll looked at all the threads about opening a cmd windows, which I can, but since I logon to the O/S with just user level permissions I can't issue any admin level apps. I can't even navigate to my C: drive. I get 'Access is denied'.

I'm tried right-clicking on the Command Prompt and 'Run as Administrator', nothing. Which makes sense since I'm logon on with only User rights.

I need full admin rights. I can't update my HOSTS file which really screws up my FTP and Telnet sessions.

I cannot logon as administrator, so I can't change anything. Should I reinstall??

Administrator Permission To Delete Folder

Sep 17, 2013

I have a game file that I have deleted/modified many, many times with no problem and now it seems I don't have permission to do so.

I used information from Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8 to add the convenient "Take Ownership" option for files and I have ownership of the file in question.

It shows that I have "Full Control" over the file.

But when I try to delete the file I get:

When I click "Try Again" I get:

why I lost permission to do this all of the sudden and how do I make sure it doesn't happen again?

Setup Installation :: Recover Legacy Boot And Remove Old Entries From UEFI Boot

Aug 21, 2013

First, some context: I have a Dell Inspiron 15R SE that came with Windows 8.

I've managed to get a working dual-boot system with Ubuntu 12.10. I can't remember exactly how I done that, but I remember that I had to disable secure boot. I think that the boot configuration those days was:

Secure boot: DisabledLoad legacy option rom: EnabledBoot list option: Legacy

This "configuration" worked perfectly for 6-7 months.

Then, one day (last week, can't remember the exact day), when I was using Windows 8 the computer crashed. I hard-rebooted and got this screen:

After executed boot-repair from a Ubuntu LiveCD dozens of times I've decided to eliminate Ubuntu temporarily and focus to get a system with Windows 8 working nice.

Then I used my recovery DVDs to recover the system. Yup, Windows has booted. But when I restarted first time I got the same error. Then I, digging a solution, pressed F12 after a reboot and got here:

The highlighted option allows me to boot into Windows 8. So I went to boot options (F2) and changed the following configuration:

Load legacy option rom: DisabledBoot list option: UEFI

Now I can boot directly to Windows without need to press F12.

But my objective isn't complete. I want to erase all Ubuntu entries from the seconds image and restore the legacy boot from the first imagem (because they worked before).

I did two things:

I erased all partitions related to Ubuntu (root partition and home partition).I created a Windows recovery disk (not a system recovery disk).

I used the recovery disk to run the automatic recovery procedure (I forgot the exactly name). I've runned it at least 10 times with no success. Then I went to command prompt to try the famous triad: bootrec /fixmbr, bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /rebuildbcd. Still, no solution.
