where is spell check in windows 8? or what ever you call it now. how do I correct my spelling in email or anywhere for that manner? and does windows 8 have copy and paste? but it's the spelling thing I can't find and need.
Spell checking do not work on Firefox in the Windows 8 x64. I mean back when I was using Win XP (for 10 years), the spell checking worked in every browser. I am talking about that red underlining appearing when a word is misspelt. Been using Windows 8 x64 for two month now and didn't see that working on latest FF.
The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.
My PC just BSOD while playing games but this was only after it crashed to black screen unresponsiveness. A couple hours after the first crash (maybe after 1.5 hrs of gaming once again) it BSOD with the "Kernel Security Check Failure" error.
I am having trouble with a message in Action Center in Windows 8.1. It is saying "Check Backup Disk Space" and I cannot hide the message. I had Windows 7 File Recovery setup with Windows 8.1, but now after the upgrade, the message is "stuck." Can this be fixed? These two links explain it perfectly:
Windows 8.1 Update - Check backup disk space - Microsoft Community
Windows 8.1, can't remove "Check backup disk space" error in action center -
After upgrading from 4gb OEM RAM to 8gb Corsair CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9 I get BSOD with kernel_security_check_failure message just as Windows attempts to load. This happens with memory sticks in either slot. Testing memory with Memtest continually hangs on test #2. Memory was tested with Memtest in another computer and no errors were found. Incompatible memory or something else?
I am dual booting Windows 7 with Windows 8.1, and I went to reboot to go into Windows 7 and it gave me a BSOD. This is NOT the first time this has happened I had to leave Windows 8 in the past because of constant crashing. I am tired of this and I want an explanation.

I made a partition of 250GB for Windows 8. I don't know what else to say here. Windows 8 seems to just crash a lot, it happened on an OLDER computer of mine, but this is a brand new custom build. I can't even comprehend why it's crashing.
Also I guess it's worth noting I installed this today and installed windows updates today as well.
I forgot to mention I was using COMODO Anti-Virus, I saw in a previous post about my exact error that it had something to do with Comodo. I have since uninstalled that.
Also here is a preview of the error:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0xc0000018 (0xffffc0000019c5d0, 0xffffc000009ea9f0, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:WindowsMEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 101113-34796-01.
So I have recently switch over to 5ghz wifi, I look up how to check the 5ghz wifi compatibility, it state that if my computer have 802.11a or 802.11n network modes it's compatible to 5ghz wifi. My Windows 8 computer have 802.11n. That should be mean my 5ghz wifi should be showing up, but its not. My Iphone 5S is able to connect to my 5ghz wifi. But my computer is not.
The way I check is type "netsh wlan show drivers" In Cmd, then i look at Radio types supported, it listed as 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
I recently statred having a problem on some boot ups. I will either get a message that says an error has forced a restart and the above kernel message is displayed. On one other occasion, I got a blue screen with a lot of squiggly lines on one side of the screen. I am running windows 8 on a HP Lqaptop.what it could be?
How to check if i update the windows 8.1 update 1 from x64 bits systems because i download all packages from microsoft download center and install in that order and dont recive error. Every package ask me to reestart i see all packages are installed on update history and on the section installed updates but I don't see nothing related to windows 8.1 update 1 as the way as see when you install from win update. I check for updates and dont find nothing. I have my service packs and mayor updates on my pc stored because in this house all use win 8.1 x64 and we have a slow connection and because i install by this way. I must say you i see all characteristics of the update 1 but i want to know if don't have errors i ran dism online clean up image restore health and sfc scannow and dont find errors. I only am worried because if this update was not installed properly the supports ends on may 13 and want to have install by the right way.
Thats are the packages and the order of i install

When I execute the Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth (fastest cmd I know I see my build are)
I downloaded few video files from a streaming website using Internet Download Manager and couple of such files do not playback properly. In Windows Explorer (detailed view and preview pane) it shows the file sizes as few hundred MB (which should be correct) but when I check the file properties (right click file -> properties), it says the file size as 0.
Now it doesn't let me delete the file, rename it or move it saying that Explorer cannot find such file. Tried unlocker. No good. Tried CCleaner. No good. I even ran CCleaner's wipe free space thing. No good.
I thought it was some missing index messing with everything. So I did a regular check disk from Computer but it didn't fix anything. Then I did a full check disk from cmd prompt which ran in the next boot up and didn't fix the problem either.
Now, instead of fixing this issue, the Action Center says that it found a problem with the drive and wants to run check disk every time I boot to Windows. It reboots, runs check disk, doesn't fix anything and gives the same error once again upon reboot.
I can fix it the hard way; that is, move everything from the D: to backup drive, format D: the restore. That's more than 2TB data! Backing up is not a problem because I already have backed up everything I need. Restore is the hard part. Will have to do it overnight anyways.
I do not want to check the speed on a USB 3.0 flash drive or external drive. I need to know the speed of the port itself is transferring at full 3.0 capacity.
What I have is an external mechanical USB 3.0 hard drive. I know it's a 7200 rpm drive. My 3.0 USB ports on my laptop are not using the blue USB plastic to denote 3.0 speeds, they use black plastic.
Therefore I am not confidant they are running at full 3.0 speeds. I want a tool that will measure the port speeds independently of any drive or device on the USB port.
I did find this but I do not have any Advanced tab to check for or to reset the device to Super
There are four USB specs: 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0. But to confuse things, each USB spec has more than one data rate assigned to it. Those rates are "low", "full", "high", and "super."
Therefore, benchmarking data throughput solely on speed is not necessarily conclusive as to what the actual spec being used. Thus, a USB 3.0 port may not be actually running at a "super" rating but at a "High" rating instead.
On a Windows machine, check the data rating of the USB root/hub - Goto: Device Manager --> USB Controllers --> USB Root Hub (Right Click) --> Properties --> Advanced (Tab).
It should tell you the data rating for the USB hub/port. Once you know that, you'll know the maximum throughput from the computer's POV.
Low = 1.5 Mbps Full = 12 Mbps High = 480 Mbps Super = 5 Gbps
Windows - Verifying USB connection speed (USB 3 or USB 2?) - Super User
Here is what the listing looks like in device manager Under the two 3.0 USB hubs at the top, there is no advanced tab.
I have been getting a blue screen with a frown face with the following: "CYour PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you. If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error. KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
What do I do about this?

So does this means the ISO I have is tampered with? I don't feel safe installing Windows 8 from the ISO. I am now downloading a supposedly untouched russian ISO but where to download the English Language pack and how to replace it in the ISO while still keeping it a bootable ISO?
