Photoshop.exe opens as a different program

Windows 8.1

Hello, I have this problem on my windows 10 and I've tried to troubleshoot but cannot figure out what's wrong. Whenever I run photoshop.exe another game's launcher (named voidus) opens, but Photoshop does not run. When I opened Photoshop I checked the file location and it creates a voidus.vdt file. Not sure why photoshop does not run. Troubleshooting steps I tried: Reset default programs.Uninstall both Voidus (game) and photoshop then deleting both Voidus and photoshop folder from Program Files. Emptied recyle bin. Then installed a fresh copy of photoshop. None of these have worked. I provided screenshot bellow. Any feedback would help. I really don't want to go back and restore. Any help will be lovely. Thank you!

Homegroup problems on Windows 10

Windows 8.1

HomeGroup works fine when all computers are setup at the same time. Unfortunately, I had to reinstall Windows 10 on one machine which messed up everything. I've gone back through and removed the original HomeGroup from the other two computers and after some work managed to get HomeGroup back on two. The third is being a problem: It seems to locate HomeGroup and asks if I'd like to join. It says "Verifying Password" (wait an eternity), then asks for the password. I type the password and wait again for an extraordinarily long time to receive the message "Windows doesn't find a HomeGroup on this network". One is already created and running well on two other machines on the same network. Anyone have a solution? Fortunately, this is my field laptop but it would make my life easier to have access.

Request clarification on some of the issues relating to System Image and System Repair Disk

Windows 8.1

Desktop PC - After upgrading PC to Windows 10, I created (a) System Image on a blank HDD and (b) a System Repair Disk on a blank CD/Flash Drive. After upgrading the PC to Windows 10 Anniversary Pack, I repeated the process by creating (a) System Image on the same HDD and (b) a System Repair Disk on a new blank CD/Flash Drive. CompBook - Storage: 32GB In-built, expandable up to 64GB via Micro SD Card, External HDD support. It came with Windows 10 pre-installed. Later I upgraded it to the Anniversary Pack. Did not create any System Image on its HDD or System Repair Disk on a separate CD/Flash Drive. Did not install any third-party software and/or freeware. Now, I am thinking of installing some. Request clarification on the following issues 1. Was it necessary to create a System Repair Disk on another CD after Anniversary upgrade? Any specific benefit? 2. Is it necessary to create a separate System Repair Disk from the CompBook though Desktop has same version of Operating System? Can the System Repair Disk created on Desktop be used for booting the CompBook if necessary? 3. A System Image may be necessary after Anniversary update but is it necessary to create a System Image of original installation by the makers of the Laptop considering that they keep somewhere in the hard disk a copy of something like that (if it is true) particularly when I did not install any third-party App on new CompBook? However, if I were to install other Apps, you would probably advise me to create a new System Image but would you advise for a new System Repair Disk? 4. Looking at thee free size of HDD on which system images have been created for desktop PC, I get the impression that Windows 10 does not create a new separate image every time but it only overwrites the earlier image, may be updating only what has changed between the two image creations. Is my assumption correct? Is this the standard approach to system image creation in Window 10? Please advise. Thank you.

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit and I am having issues adding a Mirror Drive

Windows 8.1

I installed a second 500GB Drive in the PC formatted it and trying to create a mirrored image. I had a hard drive failure and after the re-installation and reconfiguration I want to mirror it and leave it in the pc incase of a future hard drive failure and to save time. However Windows will allow the drive to be formatted, and I can configure anything but the New Mirrored drive. It will not allow to go to next at you select the drive. Any suggestions on this issue? There is old threads but nothing about how to work around this issue.
