Your icons are gone because the shortcuts are now pointing to an empty location. Instead of manually moving an application's installation from one drive to another, it is recommended uninstalling the program from the drive, and the reinstalling it on the other drive. That way you ensure that all shortcuts, paths, registry keys and so on are created/updated ...

Where is the log of shutdowns? You need to look in the system event log, using Event Viewer. The following events are relevant. Sleep/Hibernate: Log Name: System Event ID: 41 Source: Kernel-Power Type: Critical Description: The last sleep transition was unsuccessful.

I was recently unable to connect an ipad to my home wifi. Everything else connected fine, but not this device. Turned out the router LAN IP configuration had been set to allow a max number of 6 users. This device would have been the seventh, and so it wasn't allowed to connect. Once I increased this number, I no longer had any problems.

Try using device doctor so when you click on a driver that needs an update it will automatically forward you to their website to download it. The only downside is that you are limited to only two driver downloads per day.

I'm afraid you've lost your data. Bitlocker absolutely requires the recovery key to unlock the drive. It was not your password that was securing the drive; it was the recovery key the whole time. Your password was simply unlocking the recovery key which was then used to unlock the drive. You destroyed that key when you reformatted the OS drive. I hope ...

The only thing I've found which affects this is view > full screen reading. In the settings (top right) allow editing. I've found both view 1 & 2 page options only show 1 page, but 2 page is slightly bigger. Thus: full screen reading w/ 2 page view gives you a wider page layout (more text per line) AND comment area (more text per line also). Since the ...

This can be done in multiple ways: you are local admin have the same account (username and password) on the remote PC (also local admin).

A few years ago, I was having a problem like yours and it turned out that an anti-virus program had disabled automount. The fix for my system was: Open a command prompt with administrator privileges. Or in your case, from Win RE. type "diskpart" (without the quotes) and press enter. when the 'diskpart' prompt appears, type: "automount enable" (again ...

There are actually three different directories which host your data. Local User, Roaming User and Application Data. Normally you can find them via environment variables like %appdata%. Just enter that into your windows explorer's navigation bar and you should end up there. The other two directories are usually next to it. If you are inside a domain the ...

It seems the problem came from VMware player and not windows as I thought. I restarted the program and now the key works again... Don't know what happened exactly unfortunately. I checked the ~/.vmware/preferences and /etc/vmware/config files, no rule was added to ignore any key (even if I only saw the possibility to deactivate hotkeys), maybe it was a ...

You wrote the sharp key (I've always called it a [hash key])(https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=hash+key&espv=2&biw=1680&bih=945&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiYtYKpxrPMAhXKdz4KHbiBBfsQ_AUIBigB) but I guess the actual key isn't the problem. It's the fact any key isn't working. You need a keyboard mapping tool I think. I ...

Whatever the reason for the malfunction is, but it seems it has something to do with the long file names. The solution that worked: start CMD.EXE, change into the containing directory, type "dir /x" to display the short file names, then use the short file name to delete the directory. Done. :)

Nearly all print spooler problems are caused by a driver problem. The best thing to do is to reinstall the driver, as follows. Go to Devices and Printers. Delete the printer. Then click on any other printer (XPS, fax, etc) and a menu will appear at the top. Click on Print Server Properties, and then on the Drivers tab. Remove any instances of your printer ...

I was having the same issue reading a DVD with files burned from another computer. Viewing the DVD would only display a Desktop.ini file with no actual data files. “Ready to Be Written to the Disc” of any CD or DVD inserted under Windows 7.

@Vinayak, If using the "send to" option, you would probably need to add the line cd /d %1 to the start of the batch command so that it runs under the target path. my current batch file looks like this: @echo off set targetfolder=%1 cd /d %1 del *.txt pause not sure if i need the "set targetfolder=%1" in there but it works so I'm keeping it that way :) ...

Because you made a clone the windows installation is still pointing to the original drive (probably your C:\ Drive). When you boot into windows off your USB HDD, click on "Computer" after you have logged into windows. What drives are listed? You should be able to figure out what drive letters are associated to which hard drive. If windows still has your ...

I would recommend Default Programs Editor for this task. It is both more user friendly and arguably safer than editing the registry directly.

Save the context menu to ...

For now I don't see anything what might be connected with BIOS of your laptop. HP suggests that you should press F10 or F1 during the welcoming screen and you should be redirected to BIOS. Then you should specify the boot order and configure your machine to load up from HDD first. Save recently made changes and quit and you should be good to go.

You can set the boot order of your virtual machine(s)... for instance on Virtual Box you choose the 'system' properties of the guest and on the 'Motherboard' tab you can choose the boot order. Either set it just before you boot the machine to hit the CD/DVD first... or leave it at that setting always and don't have a connected CD/DVD or image unless you ...

I would point out things like UAC, VBS, Device guard and similiar advances in protecting system, other would be bugs that aren´t fixed anymore and are already abused by malware actors. Bitlocker availability, programs not supporting XP. Those are few reasons i would point out. Staying on XP is almost like a ticking bomb waiting for ransomware to spread on ...

The Update KB3139852 was replaced in the April 2016 Patchday with Update KB3145739: Updates Replaced 3139852 in MS16-034 This means the update is fully replaced/superseded and no longer required and Windows Updates skips it and doesn't offer it again.

Some of the processes showing in Task Manager are actually services that you can see in the Services node of the Computer Management console.
