Feb 16, 2014

I was using Avast, and I suspected it might be causing me certain issues, so I uninstalled it, and presently I use Windows Defender for active protection, and Malwarebytes free edition for scans.

problem is that Defender periodically turns off, and then I get an error message, and I have to turn it back on again.

Security :: Avast Turning Off USB Ports

Mar 23, 2014

Problem with Avast turning off USB ports?

After weeks of stable computer use, I tried using Avast once again, but I noticed when I restarted, my USB mouse no longer worked. I moved it to another USB slot and it worked, so I didn't worry about it.

Then today, I noticed that the two front USB slots on my computer weren't reading anything. I remembered this problem started when I started using Avast, so I uninstalled Avast and presto, I regained usage of my USB ports upon reboot.

How to keep AVAST from turning off the ports? I couldn't see anything on google offhand. If not, I may just go back to Windows Defender.

Security :: Turning On Bitlocker - Find Identifiers / Recovery Keys On Laptops?

Jul 23, 2014

I turned on Bitlocker on three new Windows 8.1 laptops and saved the 48-digit recovery keys and associated identifiers, but I forgot to indicate which laptops they are associated with. Is there any way to find the identifiers/recovery keys on my laptops so I can document this? Or do I have to decrypt the laptop drives, turn off Bitlocker, and start all over again to generate new identifiers/recovery keys? My only options under Manage Bitlocker are Suspend protection, Back up your recovery key, and Turn off BitLocker.

Remove Hardware Icon In Taskbar?

Jun 5, 2014

Windows 8.1 .... I cannot get rid of the safely remove hardware icon no matter WHAT i do. It is currently displaying 3 dots ... and thats it. If i stuff in a usb stick, it will register the stick, and allow me to right click it/eject.. then instead of the icon disappearing, it stays and just shows 3 dots >.<

Is this another one of those onedrive/cloud situations where microsoft made it permanent and we are just supposed to deal?

Any way to get rid of this? If it truly is NOT supposed to be there, any way to find out what is causing it to stay/be popped up?

I literally just went through and installed Wifi drivers for a wifi card ive never even used that came w/ my mobo. BT drivers for a bt card that came w/ my mobo. VGA drivers for haswells on die gpu which is disabled. Marvell controller and disk drivers for the Marvell sata/raid controller on board that is disabled/unused... and enabled my serial port in the UEFI in case that was causing it as well.

Still no luck - which leaves me posting here and trying to uninstall and clean up the thrashing/mess/hurt I just put on my HDD

Windows 8 - Can't Remove System Icon Off Desktop

May 3, 2014

I sent my computer to the repair shop and they apparently reinstalled everything. For some reason they put the "Homegroup" system icon on my desktop and I don't want it there, I don't even use that. When I right click it, there is no delete option at all. How to delete this? Its annoying. I really get tired of Windows 8 trying to force me to use things that I don't wish to use.

I noticed when I click on the icon it has the option of "Leave the homegroup". I don't know if that would get rid of the icon or not but I am afraid to click leave the homegroup because they said my windows was corrupted and they fixed it. I am afraid to do anything drastic on my computer for fear it might corrupt it again. It seems like any little thing you do messes up this Windows 8.

Remove Icon From Notification Area For Active Program?

Mar 11, 2014

I have installed a new program (Soundswitch) that I want to keep and I need it running in the background. What I don't need is the icon in the notification area. I only use the program's keyboard shortcut and have no need for the GUI. I keep my notification area very clean and only have icons for the three things I actually use in it. Most programs offer a way to disable their own notification icon, but this one does not. And, unfortunately, hiding the icon through the Windows 8 options created another icon (arrow), which I don't want either.

Is there a way that I can keep the program running but have the icon removed from the notification area?

Gaming :: Unable To Remove Diablo 3 Icon From Start Menu

Apr 6, 2014

I am trying to remove an icon from my windows 8 start menu. I have uninstalled the program (Diablo 3), but the icon remains under the games category. If I right click I get the option to uninstall, which brings me to the program uninstaller under control panel; Diablo 3 is not listed here. Right click also allows me to "open file location" which gives me the games screen as seen below. Right clicking on Diablo 3 here does nothing. I have no option to delete the entry.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Desktop - Remove Homegroup Icon

Apr 3, 2012

I finally found a "problem" with the Windows 8 desktop. Its a problem in Windows 7 too but I had never started a Homegroup. The darn icon won't move and you can't delete it. There is a Windows 7 fix for the problem at HomeGroup Desktop Icon - Add or Remove - Windows 7 Forums and it works with Windows 8.

If you want access to the Homegroup shortcut be sure to pin it to the start menu (I guess we call that the Start screen now) before you delete it.

Lenovo laptop with Win 8.1. I uninstalled the pre-installed McAfee anti-virus with:

- Uninstall McAfee in Programs and features

With that Windows Defender shows it is running, but there is no Icon in the notification area.Should there be an Icon in the Win 8 notification area, like Security Essentials in Win 7?

So far I have Clicked the arrow to view Hidden icons (it is not visible)Click on Customize to Show icons and notifications (AVAST is not even on the list)Opened Action Center to see that AVAST is turned on and up to date

It was there and then it's gone. I have uninstalled it and then installed a new copy from a fresh download. Maybe this is something new but I feel a lot more secure with the icons showing.

Security :: How To Remove AVG Toolbar And Search

Apr 27, 2014

I hardly ever turn off my computer, I just put it to sleep. But once a week I turn it off and I did last night. When I turned it on this a.m. My Internet Explorer had AVG secure toolbar and search. I do not want it, I did not ask for it and I cannot remove it.

There should be a law against people putting stuff on your computer that you can't remove. I called Microsoft and they told me I had to pay to get rid of it. I will not, nor can I pay. I'm on Social Security. This is BS.

How to get rid of it. And where did my Microsoft Security Essentials go? Now it's missing from my computer

Icon Flicker Introduced Due Icon Refresh With Win+d Key

Apr 30, 2013

I notice a short flicker from desktop icons when you press the "win+d" short cut. Sometimes some application windows also flicker when you use this short cut.

I guess the reason is some kind of refresh for the icons, actually it seems to be the same behaviour when you use the context menu on the desktop (right mouse click) and use the command "refresh".

It can easily be seen when you are on the desktop with all it's icons and have a small window open and then press win+d a couple of times. The Icons refresh and therefore flicker. That should be smoothed out.I notice this behaviour in Windows 8, Win7, XP.

This is no problem with a similar command in OSX or Ubuntu.

PC Is Not Turning On After Playing Battlefield 4

Feb 21, 2014

I was playing Battlefield 4 for about 15 minutes, after I was finished I closed the game and my PC just died, as if I got a blue screen without the actual blue screen, fan speed of psu went to max and stayed that way until I restarted it multiple times, none of those times did it actually boot or display anything on the monitor.

Now when I start up my pc it turns on but nothing happens, display doesn't even come on and keyboard and mouse light up and turn off again.

Windows 8 Laptop Turning Itself Off?

May 24, 2013

I am currently running with a HP 15.6" Envy Laptop PC, Midnight Black, dv6-7229wm - I have not had problems before. While I was playing Diablo 3, on medium settings, the thing just cut out. The first time, i didn't think anything about it. I turned it back on, and it turned off again twice during the HP boot logo. So i took out the battery, waited a little and started playing Diablo 3 again, and in about half an hour it turns itself off again. Each time it turns off, there is the pop of the audio going out. So, i turned MSI after burner on (I have not over clocked this system, I just have MSI to watch the heat when I was messing around one day)

Anyway, here are the last three temperature logs from MSI afterburner before it turned itself off.

02, 24-05-2013 15:09:13, GPU1 temperature ,GPU2 temperature ,GPU3 temperature ,GPU1 usage ,GPU2 usage ,GPU3 usage ,GPU1 core clock ,GPU2 core clock ,GPU3 core clock ,GPU1 memory clock ,GPU2 memory clock ,GPU3 memory clock ,GPU1 memory usage ,GPU2 memory usage ,GPU3 memory usage 80,

[Code] .....

The log isn't coming out how I wanted to, but it was about 95-99 for all of it. I am playing on a table (As level as a table can be on a 40 year old brick floor), with nothing anywhere near the laptop.
