Be aware that most cellular providers will block this if it is not activated on your account. My iPhone on Verizon (for example) displays a popup when I try to activate the Personal Hotspot requesting me to go to their website or call 611 (Customer service). When I contacted customer service, I was informed I had to change my plan to enable tethering.

I now it's rather late to post any answers here, but I just had the same problem and the solution is actually much less cumbersome than all the answers so far. The camera is in privacy mode (obviously it likes to change that by itself) and you can turn it back to normal by just clicking "show my video image" in the settings page visible on the screenshot ...

The options in VS for exceptions to determine if the debugger should break on an exception. Though VS will always break on an unhandled exception and a language break (debugger).

I had the same problem. The standard solution didn`t work. After I removed every .NET based security update, it was possible to install the .NET Framework 3.5. Afterwards I reinstalled the removed updates again, and everything was fine.

This happened with me as well. Confirm that you downloaded the correct installer (64bit). Then quit Chrome completely and restart it. Go to the settings menu (hamburger icon) > About Chrome (chrome://chrome/). Under the version number, there will be a message about an update and a button that says "Relaunch." Click on that button to update Chrome properly. ...

I had Win8 and "ActiveWndTrackTimeout" was working fine, but when I updated to Win8.1 it stopped working. I had to RENAME "ActiveWndTrackTimeout" to "ActiveWndTrkTimeout", sign out and in, and now it works in Win8.1 too.

I belive that it's the same way that a website detects what java/flash player/shockwave plugin version your using, they have a script witch detect's what browser you have and try to sugest a download for you.

I have found that restarting DHCP service makes network subsystem to recalculate metrics for default routes and use the route with lowest metric set afterwards. So, if someone wants to change default gateways on the fly on Windows, they should do the same. This makes the network connectivity to be dropped for a couple of seconds, so it should not be done ...

I was just having a similar problem. PS CS6 would lag when brushing, like it was stuttering.

This is possible in Windows 8.1. In the Modern UI PC settings page, go to PC and devices > Corners and edges > Show Windows Store apps on the taskbar. This will show all Modern UI apps--now referred to as Windows Store apps--in the taskbar.

If your IP of your system is 192.168.1.9 then you are blocking your own DNS lookup requests so your connection will be marked limited because you cannot resolve external names to IP's. Generally outgoing DNS requests are ok. Incoming would be strange for a regular non server machine.

192.168.1.9 is most likely your PC. 192.168.1.1 is your Internet Gateway Device, which operates a DNS proxy. Basically, without DNS, you won’t be able to browse the Internet. Nothing fishy there. Instead, your firewall onslaught is completely pointless.

That is a file that is generated by the Microsoft Windows Resource Checker (SFC.exe). No, it should not be that large. The CBS.persist.log should be generated when the CBS gets to be around 50 meg in size. CBS.log should be copied to cbs.persist.log and a new cbs.log file should be started. You can try compressing the file: If you right click on the ...

Windows supports both USB and PS/2 keyboards, and can in fact support having more than one such input device plugged in at a time. However, when a PS/2 keyboard is uninstalled and a USB keyboard is made the main input device (via the Keyboard section in the Control Panel), PS/2 keyboard support is disabled. Note: A PS/2 keyboard will still allow access to ...

If you intend to use the machine in a headless server-only capacity - then hyper-v may have better IO performance. However, if you intend to use any desktop aspects at all, Hyper-V offers extremely poor Linux integration compared with Virtual Box.

There was a problem with M-Audio cards on Win7, too. My Delta 66 has this same issue on Win 76 64 bit. Users on the old M-audio forum (that was shut down) railed about this issue for a long time.

Checkout TCPView. It's free and published by Microsoft, and displays established connections received / sent bytes. However, being a very simple utility program, it doesn't support tracking the activity of each process. Still handy if you want to know which program is using your internet connection.

Problem solved. I had to add several permissions manually with the help of Process Monitor. It's not the best solution, but I can't spend my time on this.

You could try something like NetLimiter which I understand is quite like OSX's Little Snitch.

From Chrome, Safari and Opera this isn't possible due to their security model. Internet Explorer permits it, because it's part of the OS and intimately linked with Explorer.exe. Thus, the only solution to achieve your goal is by using an extension.

WMP will also show corrupt files as "red". You can manually remove them from the playlist. I must agree though that VLC is an easier player when it comes to troubleshooting.

Since you're getting this during the BIOS loading, you won't be able to run a DVD etc. Try hitting F2 or DEL during the BIOS loading. Windows 8 shutdown interacts with the BIOS, so it may not have achieved the right state after a power loss. You may be able to enter BIOS setup this way. There's some info here about it.

Why not just install from the Store? Depending on the number of PCs, creating a new 8.1 image is the proper way, but for a handful of machines just installing from the Windows Store will update you without causing any data loss or re-entry of keys.

It's definitely possible. The easiest way to do it would be to call Windows Python explicitly when you want to run a Python script.
