I am looking for some help with an error I seem to be having issues figuring out.

Windows 10

I previously had System Mechanic in my computer and some how inadvertently uninstalled it without realizing it. I am trying to install a free version of the program back into the system, but it is not allowing it to finish the install and is giving me the error code 1603. How do I fix this and reinstall the program back into my computer?

windows 7 home update killed my pc

Windows 10

my desktop Dell was forced to install updates on 1/20/17 on powering it down. Now its locked, no way to restart , only give option to delete and reinstall OS. I need this machine for my business. Certainly MS has enough lawyers to get away with this,but its wrong. Can someone tell me how I get back my functional machine and keep their updates out of my life?

Update failing

Windows 10

Split from this thread. I have the same problem as well; every single day since the 12th, it's trying and failing this update; it seems to waste ~1GB for this daily; laptop is simply unusable due to continuous disk thrashing at 100%. Seems to be related to some permission issue (as also being discussed by others elsewhere, regarding this issue). // ------------------- Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800F080D: Security Update for Windows (KB3213986). // ------------------- Error 1: Event 10016 DistributedCOM The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {8D8F4F83-3594-4F07-8369-FC3C3CAE4919} and APPID {F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169} to the user NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable).

Scanning and Repair Window

Windows 10

I have an issue with my SD card being corrupt. As soon as I put the card in my SD card reader on my laptop, an error window comes up to let me know there is an error and to run the repair to fix it. The scanning and repair window does not move. I left my laptop on all night and still the window does not show any progress. Any suggestions?

Can I reset Edge, or at least the sync? Its totally messed up

Windows 10

I was a happy Edge user across 4 devices for about a year. A couple days ago I noticed that some new password would not come across to the tablet. I went for a "reset", found some FAQ in the german answers section and applied that. And now its chaos! Each other device lost the bookmarks as soon as I turned them on: the PC, the 950, a notebook. So I searched harder and came across a tool EdgeManage. I run that on the PC and indeed: it listed all previous bookmarks as "deleted". Nothing easier than to undelete them (and fix all the names that got a suffix attached). Save, start Edge: horray! Everything back - besides the reading list, another sad story. Turned the Tablet on: Hey, the bookmarks were even there a short while later! Looked at the 950: no bookmarks, ok this just might need a bit more time. But a couple hours later and suddenly: all bookmarks gone again - on all devices again :-( And now the freaking thing: I create a bookmark on PC: it's there for a moment and then it DISAPPEARS! Bookmark another site: and it disappears! Another: again Therefore the question: What do I have to delete - on the devices or in the cloud, on my account - to actually reset the Synchronisation to "everything empty, lets start from scratch"?
