Wi-Fi starts late in Windows 7

Windows 8.1

Hi. I have a Lenovo G580 model 20157. My lap is running win 7 ultimate since 6 months or so. Since the time i've installed the os, i'm observing that wi-fi starts late in my lap. After windows starts, the network icon in taskbar has a blue moving circle till almost 5 minutes. During that time i can access the internet. But in case if my lap is offline while it has started, i have to wait 5 minutes or more for connecting to my wi-fi. What is causing this problem ?

does Xbox and Microsoft promote online bullying and harassment?

Windows 8.1

so as you know microsoft is responsible for xbox and xbox live, with this new generation of gaming they came out with something new. the "xbox live enforcement team" and it is nothing more than regular people who are participating in "keeping the comunity "clean" and "safe"... or so they thought. but intern they created something much worse. they have created a gaming community that is run by bullies and people who love to harass people. with the new system the "enforcement team" reads the complaints against a person through the person(s) who filed a report agaisnt the person. was a xbox player for many many years, i have had xbox live for 6 years and just paid 60$ for a 7th year. but less than a month after i get a communication suspention. for no reason i had not harrassed anyone, i had not cursed, i had not used homophobic slurs. i have not done anything wrong.. unless you call lery very light trash talk wrong. such as saying someone needs to get good, or get some skill. or say they are trash at the game. even the enforcement team told me they allowed it because i still have a report saying they do if you would want to proof to it. but that wasnt my first offence. my very first offence happened in 2015 when a group of people got together and reported me until i was suspended from xbox live for 2 weeks. even after i had done nothing and bocked them and reported them for false reports. but xbox did nothing agaisnt them even though they followed me around and bullied me in game and harassed me constantly. the next offence was just for a very minor message. telling a player to play the objective (ptfo) nothing more. an acronym got me communication suspended? tell me would anyone get in trouble for that in real life? no they wouldnt unless they were in grade school but considering the game was rated 18+ they are adults. and the rest are for things as stupid as the previous things. so this leads me to now where my account has been targeted by bullies and harrasers who are just mad that i am actually good at gaming and who have all reported me for no reason other than to get me off xbox. now my account has been permantly banned for no reason. so does xbox give the power to the bullies and harassers on xbox who can cause serious repercussions on people who have done nothing? and why does microsoft allow this to happen? i thought they cared about the customers and the safety of the people who use their products. im upset that i will not be able to play on my xbox profile again. but im even more sad that microsoft and xbox doesnt care enough about the comunities they create to stop bullies and harassers, but instead they allow them to group up and then get good players suspended or banned. also i would ask that my xbox account would be unbanned so i can return to console i enjoy and have used for many many years.

How to disable Windows 10 auto reboots

Windows 8.1

I love using Windows 10, but the thing that I just can't comprehend is the system auto rebooting to install updates. It's the most frustrating thing ever when I have multiple tabs, folders and files open when the restart happens. This is so frustrating, I want to speak to the lead engineer who was responsible for this particular feature of Windows (why, just why?!). Ok, I'm done with my ranting. My question is how do I go around the useless scheduling option to completely disable Windows from restarting.

Disappearing icons

Windows 8.1

Windows 10. My wife and I have seperate accounts. mine works perfectly, showing all icons on the screen. My wife's shows no icons, just the name of the program, which seems to run alright when click on. However, right click/properties displays nothing - no properties- nothing. No viruses, seem to have run all the checks suggested, including sfc /scannow. Got so frustrated that I have tried to set up a new account for my wife, under a different name, but this new account also shows no icons on the screen, so useless. So, one account shows screen icons and displays properties of the file, the other account doesn't. How do we get our icons back?

Nextbook Windows 10

Windows 8.1

I purchased a Nextbook windows 10 from Walmart at the 2015 Black Friday sale. It has always had connection problems...loosing connection and such. But recently my Norton Antivirus Xfinity came up with needing activation but when I try it errors and says there is not connection. I have tried everything. It says it is connected but I cannot search or connect with the internet. When I investigated it shows that that it used to have windows 7 on it? I bought this brand new. I am very frustrated. I really need help with this.

Headset isn't showing up on both playback and recording devices. Help?

Windows 8.1

The headset I have is a SADES SA-708 GT Universal Gaming Headset (with microphone) and even though the actual sound is working fine, neither the actual headphones nor the microphone shows up in playback or recording devices. And the microphone doesn't work at all. I try to record with it but no sound is picked up. When I first got my headset, I tested the mic and it worked fine. But as I soon as I actually needed it, it didn't work at all. I had to use the mic that was built into my laptop. I can't mess around with the settings cause my headset doesn't show up at all even though I can clearly use them for listening purposes. Please help! I really need this fixed.Some details you may need: Laptop: Asus with Windows 8.1 Headset: SADES SA-708 GT Universal Gaming Headset with Microphone I've tried looking for updates in Device Manager but there is none.

.Exe files won't launch

Windows 8.1

I am using windows 10. It started off when I tried to launch Steam, then battle.net. Then I tried to run "run" and "cmd". I would get the same result everytime: it wouldn't launch at all. From what I could tell, most of my startup programs didn't launch aswell when I turned on my computer. I've tried turning it on and off. Basically, it says it's loading, then nothing. If I run in admin mode, it works perfectly fine, but I'm trying to find a fix so I don't have to do that. Thank you.
