Maintenance :: Recycle Bin Permanently Deletes Regardless Of Settings?

Apr 11, 2014

In Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 64-bit I am not given the option to move files to the Recycle Bin. Instead, when I delete a file I am asked "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?"In the Recycle Bin properties for each hard drive partition I have not selected "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin" and I have check-marked "Display delete confirmation dialog."

I can't remember precisely when this started to happen, but I did install Update 1 recently. I don't know if that matters.

Windows 8 Search Is Not Working Properly?

Nov 5, 2012

Neither the start screen nor the search feature within Explorer will return any results if the files I want to look for are on my secondary HDD. This is a bit of a problem as all of my documents, pictures, videos, downloads etc are on this secondary drive.

I can even go into the documents library and search using Explorer, and it still won't find anything that I search for.

Audio Driver Not Working Properly In Windows 8.1

Jan 2, 2014

I've created a Windows 8.1 partition separate to the original Windows 7 install. The manufacturer, Acer says the model is supported for the Win 8 upgrade. I did it on a second partition and simply installed the W8 drivers from their website. It uses Dolby Digital Audio V4. It sounds poor on Win 8 though, on the occasion that I boot back into Win 7 the difference is like night and day. Any icons in the try, apps etc. appear to be properly installed and loaded in Win 8 yet the audio quality from the speaker and with a headset is still degraded.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 - Internet Is Not Properly Working?

Jun 20, 2013

Whenever I try to play online games with my friends and talk on skype, calls would get dropped and I would lag really hard in the game. I have tried clicking on troubleshoot problems but I would always get resetting adapter and it would say fixed network adapter and access point but that did not work at all. My brother who also has the same laptop as me does not have this issue I would look at his bars and its full and tried checking his connection properties and such but they were similar to mine.

I am using Windows 8 pro which was upgraded from windows 7

Asus X53E
64-bit OS
Intel Core I5-2450M, 2.5GHz
Network Adapters: Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (Already tried re installing and it is updated to current version)

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Selecting Multiple Files With Mouse Not Working Properly

May 29, 2014

Using Windows 8.1 on HP machine
All updates up-to-date
Hardware: Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0
Explorer Folder Option selected: Single-click to open an item (point to select); Underline icon titles only when I point on them
Display: Detail list (Ctrl + Shift + 6)
No touch input

Here's the problem: For as long as I have used windows, I can select multiple files by pressing ctrl-left mouse button. If I want to select multiple consecutive files, I move my cursor down to the last file in the list and press shift-left mouse button. If I want to select multiple files that are not listed consecutively, I move my cursor along the list of files and press ctrl-left mouse button to select each individual file.

This does not work for me any longer and I do not know why.

I do not have Click-lock on.

Often I will press ctrl-left mouse click and the file will not select. When I move my mouse away from the file I've selected, it will UN-select. If I continue to press the CTRL key while attempting to select another file and float my mouse cursor down the list of files to select ONE single file further in the list, ALL the files in between the first file I click and the final file will become selected.

Moving the mouse cursor carefully and steadily to select individual files yields varied results; sometimes I can select individual files; sometimes, I can click multiple times to select an additional file and the file will not become selected. More often than not, I will select several files and earlier files will become unselected.

I have been a Windows user since version 3.1 and this has never happened to me. I have been a Windows 8.1 user for over a year now and this is a new wrinkle. I have done system restore multiple times and it has not solved the problem. I have uninstalled Intellipoint/Microsoft Keyboard & Mouse center and reinstalled and the problem has not solved. I have checked every setting for my mouse in the mouse center and cannot see a setting that imposes this feature.

Changing folder options to Double-click to open an item (single click to select) solves the problem. I am able to navigate and organize my files the way I always have. Only happens when single-click feature is enabled. Please note: I have been using the single-click select feature since Windows XP.

Browsers/Mail :: Outlook 2010 Not Working Properly Since Upgrade To Windows

Nov 13, 2012

Since upgrading to Windows 8 (from 7) a week ago my Outlook 2010 email has been faulty. It keeps stopping emails coming in or out and I have to (daily) run a 'repair' to get it to work. I contacted my ISP (Virgin) and they said that Outlook doesn't work with Windows 8 and said I should use Live. However, I then added my accounts to Live but it wouldn't accept all of them, and I found the interface very hard to use. Outlook contains all my business folders and email records for my business so I need it to work. It seems to accept my IMAP email account but not the main accounts with my ISP.

My HP desktop machine is less than a year old and has plenty of memory. But also, in general the machine is slower and won't restart (I have to force shut down).

Keyboard And Mouse Not Working Properly - Laptop Beeps On Booting Up

Aug 10, 2014

Laptop Keyboard and Mouse is not working properly now. Last time this occurred which was about 3 months ago, I reset-ed Windows 8 and it was all working again. When this occurs, in both incidents, I can't go to bios, can't enter password to login, can't open on-screen keyboard(except sometimes), and even if I get open, using it is same as using the keyboard.

Mouse errors: LMB changes to Select all thing so I can't click anything. This issue is same at least most of the time.

Keyboard errors: This varies a lot from time to time.

I reset-ed OS this time too and the problem still exists unlike before.

Ex: I'm not sure this key is this or not, but it was I think Z is ctrl, x is alt, a don't work, ctrl, alt, shift don't work. Then, keyboard itself keep on pressing space or opening windows support.

And then I updated my BIOS and now the problem was a little bit solved or I think it would be best to say the problem changed bit.

Now z,x,a, spacebar, ctrl, alt, shift, everything working,except ! and maybe a few other keys, but now It keeps pressing caps lock, shift and opening up windows support.

Then I restarted, and now I pressed F2(BIOS) and it let me in. I tried changing the boot priorty order but those keys F5/F6 aren't working, so I restarted, now again I can't press F2.

And sometimes laptop beeps for some reason on booting up.

There are no keyboard drivers except the default one and sticky and filter are all off.

Screensaver And Power Settings Are Not Working In Win 8.1

Jul 7, 2014

My screensaver and power setting to turn off the display has stopped working, and these were working the other day. The only thing I have changed is I updated iTunes. I have tried a system restore to before this and this did not fix this.

Among other things I have tried a clean boot, sfc, and checking the energy report. Clean boot did nothing and sfc gave no errors. I uploaded my energy report if any one thinks it could be useful.

I also tried to put the PC into sleep, which I don't normally do and it woke up a little while later. That gave me the following error in event viewer:

The system firmware has changed the processor's memory type range registers (MTRRs) across a sleep state transition (S4). This can result in reduced resume performance.

Audio :: Speaker Settings Subwoofer Crossover Not Working

Jun 8, 2014

I run a 7.0 speaker system connected in multi-channel analogue mode to my Creative X-Fi Titanium.

I set my speaker settings on Windows 8.1 disabling the subwoofer and checking the full-range speakers checkbox to allow the low frequencies to be handled by my satellite speakers.

I've made no changes to the settings and yet I suddenly experienced a decrease in bass after a system restart.

When I checked the speaker settings I noticed that checking/unchecking the full-ranged speakers and subwoofer checkboxes no longer made any difference. i.e. the signal still gets passed to the centre/subwoofer port on the soundcard.

Clicking on the subwoofer on the window, I can only hear sounds from my front left/right speakers. Previously, unchecking the subwoofer checkbox sends the low frequencies to the available full-range speakers.

I have tried using an optical connection on Dolby Digital and it gives the same problem.

I am running the latest driver version available.

Maintenance :: PC Keeps Running Long Time - Sleep Settings Not Working

Apr 13, 2013

Running a family PC, with different user login's. Users is leaving the PC even sometimes after logoff not putting the PC to sleep or switching on the PC, do not log in and leaves the PC running. (training of users, no result).

Task: Ensure the PC goes to sleep within reasonable time.

Sleep settings does not seem to work after user logoff. (3 different login profiles) all set to same standard "balanced" scheme. The standard scheme is changed/set to HDD off 20min, sleep 20 min, hibernate 240min.

A small app is called by screen saver logs the user off after 15 min inactivity with a 1 min warning screen. All working fine with logoff etc.

I had hoped the adjusted standard settings "balanced" was cascaded to the "logoff" state, but it seems to run it's own life after logoff, meaning the PC keeps running (screen goes black as set in the "standard scheme) however the power settings is not putting it to sleep, it takes hours...

The Ethernet card "hard wire" is set to not wake, the wireless adapter is disabled, lock screen is disabled.

Have also tried in the registry to set all default user schemes to = 5 (this was working in XP after logoff) but seems to have no effect in Windows 8. I'm not having Windows 8 pro, so GPO is not an option.

Here comes the questions:
Case, after logoff I want the PC to sleep after 20 min.
Where is the settings for "logoff" state (i.e. no user logged in and after user logoff) in the registry
How to changed the setting in the registry, meaning Dword, name, value for 20 min to sleep

Windows 8 Corrupted Recycle Bin

Sep 24, 2013

I recently had an issue with ownership where I had to change back the ownership of my C: drive to Administrators and was able to fix that. However, I'm still getting an alert that I have a corrupted Recycle Bin. I tried to delete it, but it comes right back even in Safe Mode. I tried removing the directory with "rd /s /f C:$Recycle.bin", but it just tells me that the directory is not empty. There's this one folder with one r0OWNYK.dbx file inside the bin. How to remove it?

Recycle Bin Crashes System?

Apr 29, 2013

I had deleted some items and decided to restore them.

When I open the recycle bin, I can see the files for about 2 seconds and then it seems the system crashes and refreshes/restarts. As soon as it opens, the little blue circle is there spinning.

I tried pinning a Recycle Bin tile to the tile screen and it does the same thing, whether I am in desktop mode or tile screen.

I have tried clicking on "restore all files" quickly when the Recycle Bin is open, but nothing is operable.

I have rebooted, I have checked for updates, and cannot fix it as of yet.

Everything else works fine, like icons on the dock is clickable, I can go to start and open an app etc.

The way I can empty the recycle bin is open the recycle bin and empty it within the folder.
