Windows 8(.1) prevents apps from running "As Administrator" at startup. The only possible way is via the old task scheduler trick mentioned in magicandre1981's comment.

Maybe UACPass (free) will solve it: Install the program. Open the UACPass window. Drag to it the program you are pretending to run at boot. Done. This program should now run as admin without UAC prompt. The program even has an option for add to startup :-D . Your program will only run after logon (or so I think).

TL;WR: The problem was the size of the page file. By disabling clearing of the page file at shut-down, the time for shut-down went from over 5 minutes to just 9 seconds. If I kept this enabled, but decreased the size of the page file, I was able to reduce the shut-down time down to 41 s at 4583 MB. The first thing the led me to think that the problem ...

I would suggest you to track the processes running in the background. May be a background application or any process is the reason behind delay in shutdown. Go to Task Manager Click on Process Tabs You need to verify your processes individually. End a process and Shutdown (See if it resolves) Note - Be clear you are aware of default process list. Verify ...

It seems everything in the startup folder needs to be a shortcut (.lnk). Everything in the statup folder on my Windows 8 partition is a shortcut including the AutoHotkey script and other things I placed there manually, and I seem to recall this solving the same problem for me after much frustration. To make a shortcut in Windows, click and drag the file ...

Windows runs makecab.exe to reduce the size of the old CBS log file. You can find compressed CBS.cab files under C:\Windows\logs\CBS. Windows scans for updates at start, so it detects too large logs and compressed them. So, calm down, nothing is wrong.

'In addition to @David Z's answer, you can also have a look at /etx/xdg/autostart I noticed that some gnome applications were autostarted from here. If an application stills autostarts and you didn't find it in all these places, try dpkg -L theoffendingpackage and look for .desktop files.

You can write your custom startup services using /etc/init.d/skeleton as base. You can run insserv my-service-name to install this service. after.local is not enabled by default, you can do it through systemctl enable after-local.service. You can get more info on ...

On the logon screen, keep pressed the power button and turn off the system. Then you can reboot it normally without being hybernated. Though is a bit rough. UPDATE If your problem is really the enter key of your keyboard then your only option to verify that's only a keyboard issue is to plug another full-operating one. Another try: even if you are on a ...

At log on screen of windows-7, there is a small icon on the top-left corner called Ease of access. You can click there and open On-screen keyboard, then use it instead of hardware keyboard to logon your computer. You can use Ctrl + Alt + Del to goto logon window.

So I've decided to create this Powershell script. Github project here. Version with capturing the process arguments as well. The actions performed: Delete previous file. Check the running processes. Filter the list by path that contains specific word (Program) which assumes all programs are installed either in Program Files or Program files(x86) Get ...

Another option is to pull links to software to start into the 'Startup' folder in the Start menu - it is Slow, but works. It doesn't open the 'previously' open programs though, just a preset set.

Something that comes close to what you're asking: Enable hibernation in power management and instead of shutting down your PC, use the hibernate option. This does turn off your PC's power and restores your PC to the state you were in when you turned the system off. Other than that, there's no built-in functionality that does what you are asking. The Windows ...

Those adapters come with Cyberghost VPN. First you must be sure that you delete Cyberghost completely from your computer, then go to Network and Sharing Center or device manager and disable those adapters. You can easily remove them from device manger and just restart to have it take affect.

Possible solution: switch from selective startup to normal startup in msconfig.

It sounds like maybe the Explorer service failed to start on boot up for some reason. Try starting it manually from the command prompt or the "run" dialog by pressing win+r. If that works, make sure that service is in the list of startup services.

Compile copy .ahk to .exe file using "Convert .ahk to .exe" tool that is in Autohotkey distribution. I think in that case it should work fine.

Turns out the issue was with the Open Recent History. All of the SVG files I open are stored on network shares and move around quite a bit. Disabling this feature resolved the problem permanently. So, I suspect Inkscape verifies and/or reads various information about the files in the Open Recent History. File > Inkscape Preferences (SHIFT+CTRL+P) ...

In general, beep codes are used in situations where video is not yet available or is unusable by the system at the point in time when a critical problem must (because the boot process cannot continue) be reported. In practice, there are a few cases where perhaps it would be possible to initialize video and display an error message, but it is still easier to ...

Thanks to Wes Sayeed for pointing me into the right direction, here is the final result.. Note however that programs may not be running the same as on your computer, since I used those as an example and any syntax added may not have anything to do with the programs as you know it...

I do not know if there are any 3rd party utilities to do this, but Windows does have built-in mechanisms to monitor battery status. The good news is that it makes a wealth of information about your battery available to you. The bad news is that it doesn't make it easy for you to use it at all. A great way to accomplish what you want is to use a script to ...

I would try this out, I experienced a problem similar to this before: Make sure the PC is not plugged in the charger. Take out the battery. Take out the harddrive. Wait 10 Seconds, then plug the harddrive back in, then the battery. Power it on. What this does is drain the electrical reserves inside the MB, or atleast that is what I read when I got the ...

This is the method I use. Go to: C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup ("Startup" folder is also under "Start" > "All Programs") Find the .exe of what you want to startup. Create a shortcut. Drag the shortcut into the "Startup" folder. Then rename them all in the order you want: 1_"name" 2_"name" ...

I know that the question is old but we developed a device that does exactly what you are asking. Maybe someone else will see the answer and take advantage of it. You can find the crowd funding campaign for it here on indiegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/remtickle/x/8007045 Best regards, Mihai

Instead of trying all those you can try this : load bios with the steps given above and press F5 to load defaults in BIOS press Y to save and then, press F10 to save and exit press Y to save. Then it will restart the computer and then, it will ask to activate windows which happened in my case.

From man screen: -dmS name Start as daemon: Screen session in detached mode. -r Reattach to a detached screen process. So you can start every command in its own screen daemon with a name, for example: screen -dmS port27015 ./srcds_run -console -game cstrike -tickrate 100 -pingboost 2 +map bhop_eazy -maxplayers 32 -port 27015 Now you can resume ...
