Defragging Gets Stuck on random numbers Windows 10

Windows 10

I need to migrate my data from my hard drive to my SSD, but I need to defrag the hard drive first. It is 2% fragged when I analyze it, but every time I try to optimize the drive, it gets stuck on random numbers. The first time I tried it got stuck at pass 14 at 0% and the next time it got stuck at pass 9 at 0%. I do know that every time it gets stuck the percent will be 0%. I closed all applications and let it defrag for an hour and only got to pass 8, and stuck at 0%. Thank you for the help!

Problem with Search Indexing and Outlook, outlook always return either "We couldn't find what you are looking for." or "No results"

Windows 10

Hi I am using Windows 10 32 bit and Office 2016 on Intel core i3 processor with 4 GB RAM. Since last 5 days I am facing problem with searching email in Outlook, it has stopped searching newly arrived emails and was only searching old emails where Indexing done not for new emails. I searched online and came across many solution I rebuilt Indexing. Now it's not searching anything in my outlook emails. I have looked around and tried everthing which was suggested in forums and answers including: Changing advance properties of .pst and .ost data files with allowing files to be indexed and rebuilding indexChanging .ost, .pst and .msg to Index Properties and File Content in IndexingUninstalling and reinstalling OfficeRemoving and adding back Microsoft Outlook in Indexing options One thing I wanna add is everytime I change advance properties of .pst and .ost files with checking allowing files to be indexed and open outlook properties always change back to unticked (this might be reason for problem as well) Even after all these stuff email are not searcheable. I think problem is not with Outlook, it's rather with Windows Indexing that it's not properly integrated with Office Apps. Please help in this regard if you can provide me any solution. If microsoft need I'll grant access to my computer so they can check what is causing this bug.. but get me out of this trouble please. My office work is heavily suffering due to this problem :( Hope to get a quick response. Thanks

Bluetooth Stopped Working After Win10 Cumulative Update

Windows 10

My Bluetooth device, a Fitbit dongle also known as a Fitbit Base Station, last communicated with my Fitbit in the morning of 12 Jan 2017. Later that day, a Win10 cumulative update was installed. Since then the Fitbit Connect s/w no longer syncs with the Fitbit via the dongle. I have tried suggestions on the web, including making sure the driver was up to date, with no success. The current driver is 10 years old, but when Windows searches for a more recent driver, it says the driver is up to date. When I click on "Driver Details" in Control Panel, this message is displayed: "No driver files are required or have been loaded for this device." I have found more current driver files and pointed Windows to the folder where they reside, but Win10 again says the driver is already up to date. The Control Panel (Devices and Printers) says the dongle is working properly, and lists it as an "Unspecified" device. I think this means it is being recognized, but not being recognized as a Bluetooth device. The Device Manager fails to list the dongle. There is no "Bluetooth" or "Other" device category which I think means the Device Manager isn't recognizing the dongle at all. The Action Center lacks the "Bluetooth" button. When I click on "All Settings" in the Action Center, then "Network and Internet", then "Airplane Mode", under Wireless Devices "Wireless Network Connection" has an OFF/ON button, but the same button for "Bluetooth" is missing. Any ideas what I can do to get Bluetooth back?

Windows 10 PC Stuck at Spinning Circles Randomly

Windows 10

My computer is currently driving me nuts. It's a custom built PC (only built a few months ago) that has had no issues other than failing to boot to the log-in screen. Except it doesn't do it consistently. It usually happens randomly. One day, I'll wake up, go to my computer, turn it on and it'll be stuck on that spinning circle screen for hours. From what I've noticed, it almost always happens after any Windows update. But not exclusively. It has been doing this for a couple months, it started with a Windows update and has definitely not been happening since the build of the computer. The keyboard is usable up until the spinning circles are the only thing on the screen, but until then, I don't know that it's not booting right. Windows has rerouted it to the Start Up Recovery a few times, and I want to avoid any formatting of my computer. I try to troubleshoot the problem but it doesn't find any. The only thing I can do is turn it off and on and off and on and hope that one of the times I turn it on it boots correctly. This is exactly what I did just now. I really appreciate any help anyone can give me. I'm going insane right now. Below I'll put my PC's specs and the latest Start Up Recovery troubleshoot log.

Help me stop family features verify

Windows 10

If I ever had a reason to look at a Mac its now.... Got a new Xbox for the kids..... had to create new Microsoft accounts which I did on MY also brand new laptop. Big mistake. I made a parent account and then two kids accounts. These Microsoft accounts for the Xbox somehow hijacked my Windows 10 laptop and are asking me to "verify an account" but there is no box to type in to fulfill the request. In short, my laptop is crippled because I get this verify account popup. For example, I recently loaded Firefox but can't use it because of the verify error. THINGS I HAVE ALREADY DONE: I have signed on to MS and eliminated all kids accounts from family. I am signing in locally. I have eliminated all other users from the laptop. I have cleared some playstore cache (whatever that is) MY PROBLEM: I get a loop of popups which I cannot satisfy: Popup text: 1. Make sure your Microsoft account is verified before you ask your parent for permission. 2. Did you mean to switch apps? Microsoft family features is trying to open Microsoft family features. (love this verbage) 3. Verify your account to continue using Microsoft family features. Then I click verify and the popups go away and I'm back to square one. This is so frustrating. Why on earth MS assumed I wanted them controlling any aspect of my laptop is beyond me. All I wanted was accounts for my kids to be able to play Xbox. What an ordeal that was too. I read a lot of people have similar problems but I've tried all the easy fixes. This is a new laptop.... Any suggestions? Thanx

Homegroup/Sharing problems

Windows 10

I am running Windows 10 and I evidently set up a homegroup account somewhere along the line, but a family member had not been added. I added my husband tonight. I went back to set-up homegroup/sharing with my husband's name and it tells me I have already set up a homepage account and I had a choice to "join now" or "cancel." I clicked on "join now" and the next screen explains about sharing, and a "next" button, which then brings me to the screen that asks what files want to be shared. I click "next" and it brings me to the screen asking for a "homepage password." What is that password? Is it my Microsoft account # or a different password? I entered my Microsoft account # and the error message came up "windows no longer detects a homegroup on this network. To create a new homegroup, click OK." Do I have a homegroup as it said originally, or don't I and need to set one up? Basically all I want to do is to be able to get into my husband's documents, etc from my computer and he can get into mine from his computer. P.S., I'm really unhappy with the windows 10 and would like to go back to an older version of windows. (My laptop came equipped with Windows 10...am I stuck with it?)

Cant connect Windows 10 Mobile to Win 10 PC using USB (Build 10.0.14393.693)

Windows 10

I have a Lumia 930, and I cant connect it using Windows 10 Mobile to Win 10 PC using USB (Phone Build 10.0.14393.693). It detects the phone when connected because it starts charging the device but I cant see it on file explorer and the Phone Companion App on the PC is useless anyway. I was able to last connect the phone to the PC in October to do a file transfer of Photos and Music. Next time I tried about 2 weeks later its went in to this state. Please help - I'm trying to get an answer from all sources for since last October (2015) but no success.

Keyboard Issues {Full Explanation in Post}

Windows 10

So, I use a wireless Logitech Keyboard and this problem randomly popped up after factory resetting my computer. Two problems that happen that are really annoying when chatting with people or even typing is when I type a capital c using the shift key it deletes a chunk of what I wrote recently. Also, when using my backspace key it types x and won't let me type anything, but it doesn't do this ALL the time. I don't know WHY it's happening either. There's nothing that sits on my laptop's keyboard that causes the keys to be pressed down and nothing touches the touch pad to move it. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. I put it under Search, touch, and mouse because I had no idea what Keyboard issues go under.
