    OS doesn't start right.

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium on my computer and back in October I started having problems when I turned the machine on in the morning. Turn it on, no start. Just the motherboard flash screen then a few seconds of the Welcome screen. After that it goes black and stays that way. I restart it...

    SOLVED Failure configuring Windows updates, now no internet

    Dan, thanks for your reply but since February, 2016 when this was posted I have replaced the hard drive and installed a new copy of Windows 7 on it. Haven't had any problems since then. The problem came down to several bad sectors on the old hard drive and they were interfering with the...

    Can't resize a save as window and hightlighting doesn't work right either

    I recently installed a new hard drive as my old one crashed and burned. I went from a 500 GB ti a 1 TB drive and installed a brand new copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit on the new drive. Now I can't resize the Save As windows in either of the word processing programs I use (Office 2007...

    Clean Install of Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit not working right

    The net framework is installed and as far as I know all of the mother board drivers are as well. How would I know if one was missing? And which one it is? I'm not exactly the most computer literate person out here.

    Clean Install of Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit not working right

    Due to a hard drive problem I had to replace the one in my HP Pavlion a6500f. Instead of staying with the 500 GB drive that was originally in I got a 1 TB drive and a brand new Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. I did the clean Install but can't get the OS to change wallpapers or even see My...

    SOLVED Failure configuring Windows updates, now no internet

    I was downloading and installing the latest updates for Windows 7 SP1 on my HP Pavilion a6599f desktop computer yesterday. After it all said it was downloaded and installed I shut the computer off for the night. When I turned it on this morning it did this whole "installing updates" thing and...

    Unable to control my permissions

    Not your fault! Thanks for trying at least. I'm thinking now that it might have been one of our little 1 second power outages that go on out here that occurred just as it was moving. We get a lot of those going on that cause blinks in the computer but not enough to cause it to shut down.

    Unable to control my permissions

    I already did that search when the file first disappeared. I have searched the location it originated from, the location it was moved to, and the entire hard drive. It simply seems to have disappeared. I'm not going to worry about it anymore. It's gone and that's that.

    Unable to control my permissions

    Searching the hard drive for even just Flooding brings up nothing. So I am going to assume that they have been permanently deleted.

    Unable to control my permissions

    Yes, it is a DVD-RW but it was finalized when I created it. The files on it are pictures I have taken over a couple of years that I cleared from my computer to free up memory. However, when trying to move a file all I get is that I have no permission to do anything with the file. I get that...

    Unable to control my permissions

    I installed and used your Freeware Take Ownership and after taking ownership of a folder on a DVD I moved it to a folder on my desktop. Now my folder is in limbo somewhere and has not shown up where it's supposed to be. Neither is it on the DVD anymore. I did a search for the last word of the...

    Safe Mode works but Normal Start simply hangs then shuts down

    Yes, it will. I tried the Microsoft thing for that Security Patch that was creating problems but it still won't start in Normal Mode. I think I forgot to mention that when this first started it told me I needed to do a System Restore to an earlier date and I did that. It said the System...

    Safe Mode works but Normal Start simply hangs then shuts down

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32-bit on my computer and for some reason I can start and use it in Safe Mode (just that one, no Networking or Command Prompt) but if I try to start it normally it goes to the Starting Windows splash screen, then goes black and shuts itself down. I don't have...
