I'm in program trying to remove the canon MP495 series MP Driver and it will not remove. A window says that the printer is in use by someone. The printer in question is completely turned off. I've shut the computer off and restarted it and it is still there. What now? I was trying to remove a virus and it had programs running to close them first. This is why I had to run recovery to clear it.
I have a HP laptop, which I just recently run system recovery on. I had a pixma MP495 series print installed wireless and it was working fine. (wireless) I believe that I had used the compatibility wizard to install it as windows 7. My OS is windows 8.1. When attempting to run setup, I get a window that my computer has a newer version of MP driver in it so it will skip the installation of the driver. It runs the rest of the setup and gets to detecting the printer. I have the USB cable hooked to the computer also. It searchs both wireless and through the USB connection and can not find the printer.
I have a Canon i9100 printer which worked great through XP, Vista and Win 7....Canon provided updated drivers.. However, for 8.1, Canon does not provide a driver for this printer. Is there another source which makes a generic driver for this printer so it does not become obsolete?
Windows 8 Release Preview 64 bit found my USB connected Canon Pixma iP5000 printer, but didn't install a driver. WU says there is an update available, but that will not install. Error is WindowsUpdate_80070BC8, which doesn't work much. I haven't been able to find a 64 bit driver on any of the Canon sites, but I have found an XP 64 driver, on another site.
Checking properties for this printer in Devices & Printers throws up the following event: Driver Management concluded the process to install driver prnca00m.inf_amd64_26559657092dd606prnca00m.inf for Device Instance ID
USBPRINTCANONIP50007&8F48641&3&USB005 with the following status: 0xBC8.
This status code is listed as ERROR_CORE_DRIVER_PACKAGE_NOT_FOUND
Attempting to update the driver from the printer properties finds a couple of drivers, but they also fail to find a core driver package. Add printer wizard finds a compatible driver on my machine, but that also fails for the same reason.
This printer is installed OK on my W7 installation on the same machine.
The 64 bit XP driver installed OK on this Windows 8 RP installation, and printed a file OK, but attempting to upgrade results in the same error. After installing this XP driver, WU reported that the update installed, but Update History shows 'Failed'. Now WU isn't offering the update.
I have HP pavilion G6 laptop running windows 8.1. Found under c:windows emp a folder with a very long alphanumeric "name". On opening this appears to be an OS installation i.e. it has the following files included:
Program Files Program Files (x86) Program data Sources Users Windows
Being in the temp folder I presume can be deleted. However I cannot delete this folder. I get the message that says I require permission from the trusted installer (??) to make changes to this folder.
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.
I am new to windows 8 and having trouble with my account alias, I recently purchased a new laptop, when I created my alias email address I used a pop 3 email (ntlworld.com) unaware that that these email addresses cannot be used, I am trying to add a Hotmail.co.uk address but it is saying, "For security reasons, you need to verify your primary alias before you can add another alias" I have received an email in my[url]... email and it says if the address is correct I do not need to do anything, but it can't be verified.
I was having the issue where windows 8 randomly disconnects bluetooth devices, so i tried to remove then reinstall it. When trying to remove, after a while, it comes up with a message saying "Unable to remove device".
So I go straight to device manager and uninstall my mouse from there. it works. I go back to the windows 8 show bluetooth devices menu and the mouse is still there. I hit remove and it works.
Now when i restart my computer its BACK in both device manager and bluetooth device menu. I just want it off and gone.

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.
StorageDevicePolices didn't exist so I created a 32 bit Dword string, set to 0 this hasn't done anything

I have upgraded to 8.1 from 8(OEM) through the Store, when I tried to install the ELAN driver for 8.1 from Acer, installer says the driver installed but in device manager it shows only "PS2 compatible driver", the old driver works but it doesn't include "ETDctrl.exe" in Startup, I have to manually start it by going to Control Panel, HW and Mouse. Is there anyway I could make ETDctrl.exe start when windows start?
At random, Windows would refuse to shut down, although it would cancel out the display. Hitting the power button it would bring the PC back to life in a state half in shutdown and half alive. Upon restart, Windows will refuse to detect my LAN driver. It wouldn't even show up on the device manager (not even as an unknown device).
I have Gigabyte G1 Assassin motherboard with BigFoot Network LAN card. To make the LAN work again, I have to delete the Big Killer Network software from my PC and re-install it again. But after two days, Windows will do the same thing all over again.

Today I tried to install the new BETA driver for my Intel HD 4600 Integrated Graphics unit, however, regardless of installation through through my driver with the extracted driver-ware, or through an .exe nothing seems to work.
I either get the "system does not reach minimum requirements.", or "The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer"
Trying to install a Canon MF5750 Printer on windows 8.1. Canon has a driver for this printer and windows 8.1 64. My primary problem is that when I get to the point of selecting a port, I am unsure of what to do. My choices are LPT 1-4, COM 1-4, FILE, and PORTPROMPT, none of which would seem to represent a usb port. By crawling through the Device Manager listings, I should have plenty of usb 2 and 3 ports. So my question is what happened to my usb ports. An additional observation is that while the printer and fax functions are installed (though not working) the scan function is not installed.
The software for the Canon MP280 is automatically installed but the scanner is not recognized by programs such as Paperport. When I try to use the installation CD that came with the MP280 it starts the process of installation and gets to the install screen and tells me that a printer is already in use and that I should reboot and try again. The same message comes back after following the install process from the CD again. Everything works just fine with Windows 7
I recently upgraded my Samsung Series 7 Ultra to the Windows 8.1 preview to check out it's new offerings. It's ok I suppose. Some positives and some negatives. Anyway on to my point:
So with the update came some unwanted changes. It seems to have disabled most of my func keys on the top row of my keyboard. Also, it now no longer saves my touchpad settings. They are reset to default everytime the system is rebooted.
I'm guessing this has to do with the Samsung software that controls these features not yet upated or ready to run on 8.1.
I have a Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch. The other day, for reasons unknown, it would start up into the auto repair process. It would "diagnose PC" then "repairing", warning that might take a long time. Well after 24 hours I figured this was a dead end.
I have been through a crazy number of troubleshooting steps --couldn't get into any F8 or Shift=F8 action --Samsung's Restore mode crashed (F4) --Made a recovery USB and figured out the magical BIOS steps that would actually allow me to use it after much trial and error)
The recovery process has yielded no joy. --System Restore crashed --Automatic Repair was never ending --System Refresh said the drive was locked
So I started using DOS commands. Chkdsk seems to be taking forever to accomplish very little. See the screenshot:
I have a Samsung NP9000 model NP900X4C-A05AU. It regularly crashes due to full memory. It has 8G of RAM, running Windows 8.1. It's done this since day 1 - I managed to remove some Samsung bloatware that mitigated the problem somewhat, i.e. from once a day to three times a week. Mostly, just before it happens I get the "close some programs or lose some data" message, and I can possibly kill something (chrome usually) to free some memory so I can reboot cleanly. Usually at this point, the "Modified" section of the Task Manager Memory usage tab is quite big. Reboot and it's good for another couple of days.
Sometimes the "close some programs" message is too late... I get the message and almost immediately Windows crashes and reboots. Up until last week, this didn't cause any issues after the reboot. But last week, it did this, gave me the message and immediately crashed. It took about 1 hour for it to reboot, sitting at the "please wait" dots. I was in the process of making a recovery USB to boot from when it finally came to life. Everything seemed ok, was able to start things up, and carried on as usual. Couple of days later, get the "close some programs" message, and am able to reboot. But the laptop takes 5 to 10 minutes to reboot. Up until I had this issue, a reboot would take 5 to 10 seconds (to get to the login prompt). Even a reboot after just rebooting takes 5 to 10 minutes. I've run scans on my SSD, it says everything is ok. Every reboot now takes 5 to 10 minutes.
