Stray "open with" dialogue

Windows RT

After every machine start or restart and after Windows 10 has loaded many things in the background, I get a Windows pop up with options of which application to open a non existent thing with. Again, I have not attempted to open anything...just restarted or started the machine. It is annoying! Any thought? Jeff

BSOD due to ntoskrnl.exe, can't identify which drivers are causing the problem.

Windows RT

Hey guys, I've tried to solve this problem myself but I can't successfully identify what drivers are causing the problem. Here's the analysis from WhoCrashed: On Tue 17/01/2017 9:47:23 PM your computer crashed crash dump file: C:WindowsMinidump11717-8375-01.dmp This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x14A6F0) Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFC18112CBB060, 0xFFFFF803EEF598E0, 0xFFFFC18112D05900) Error: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE file path: C:Windowssystem32ntoskrnl.exe product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System company: Microsoft Corporation description: NT Kernel & System Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.

Virtual Agent answer

Windows RT

I posted a question to MS Virtual Agent. How do I download pictures from my iPhone 7? The computer sees the phone but says there are no pictures on it when there are. The Virtual agent gave me browser address for a few similar questions but I could not cut and paste them to browser and they were too long to see whole address and retype them.

Pause One Drive

Windows RT

How do I pause One Drive? I'm on a metered connection and the computer keeps telling me to pause it, but I can't find a pause facility in Windows 10 and the advice for this on the web doesn't work. Given that I have no intention of storing anything in the cloud (it's sure to be hacked sooner or later - if it hasn't been already and we're just not being told given recent Yahoo history) can I remove One Drive without affecting this PC's overall performance? If I can how would I do that - I notice there's a "collapse" option - is that it? Thanks in advance for your help.

Failed Cumulative WUs -Is the current approach for helping Users "fit for purpose"??

Windows RT

I’m one of many users who have experienced major problems with the failure of Windows Updates, usually Cumulative ones. For example, the December Cumulative Update for Win10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (failed twice) and the October Cumulative Update for Win10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems. The January 2016 Cumulative Updates completely screwed up my Win10 (free/forced upgrade from Win7 and I also major problems with the Anniversary Update in August 2016. These problems appear to me to have hit users across the spectrum – users with different makes of PC, different OS Builds and versions – I’ve only seen Win7 and Win10 problems but I’d bet others too have been affected - and with different Security/Firewall products (not just McAfee and Norton that some are blaming). Further, the failure of those updates have also affected other MS products such as Edge and Defender. Bluntly these issues must have been programming faults - not run-of-the-mill problems that should be dealt with via individual threads. I’m simply a User, not an expert, but it’s obvious to me that the current procedures for getting help have failed. Some Users have added their complaint to an existing thread eg Cumulative Update KB3206632 and Update KB3206632 stuck Many Users there, myself included, felt it was sensible to group our problems together but if you dare to do that you get a curt ‘Create your own thread’ reply (usually followed by a request to the Moderators to split it off to a new thread plus unfair.unprofessional criticism of those who have posted eg we are no more than "Me, too! F*** Microsoft!" gripers”. But how can it possibly help to force Users to create their own threads? Search for KB3206632 and you'll see at least fifty users saying the WU won't install - on the first screen alone three of the twenty have had no reply and it gets worse on later pages. Creating separate threads simply lengthens the queue of ‘help needed’ and increases the number of threads to which no expert replies. And bear in mind I’ve only looked at Win10 problems with KB3206632 – now many more similar threads are here with no reply? In my opinion, the solution is for the Moderators/Forum Owners to create a thread in such instances as this when there is such a major problem caused by programming flaws, as they did with the Missing Start Menu/Cortana issue. [Bear in mind that in a few months’ time we should expect the Windows 10 Creators Update –also known as Redstone 2. 3D and many new features! Will that go without any problems? = more individual threads created?] So please reply here to let the FOs/FMs know if you agree with the current “Create your own individual thread” or whether you too would like to see a single FO/FM thread created. I know they are extremely busy at the moment what with personnel changes and the current dreadful performance problems with the Community but we do need their help with this. PS Are any of you still having problems with failed WU’s?

Problem with Driver Update

Windows RT

I made a clean install of windows 7 Home Premium recently and everyrhing was fine until the first restart. Before this, I had Windows 10 running perfectly fine on my system. I was playing a game and all of a sudden my screen showed a solid red color and it just wasn't responding. I did a hardreset and after starting up, the screen was all black (before logging in) definitly not doing anything by all means. No access to anything. Then a few days later, not touching my pc, I decided I needed to do something about it. I (don't remember how) somehow managed to make win10 make a clean uninstall of everything including itself. It stuck at %34 and my pc shut down. So I used my Windows 7 installation disk it said that an OS was already installed and it couldn't make a proper install of Win7. But disk gave me a list of drives that I could choose to install it on. All of them showed the same problem. BTW when I start my pc it used to say "An operating system was not found". On that list of drives I had the option to format any of the drives. So I formatted the one I was going to install win7 on. So until the first restart it was fine. After that black screen problem continued. So I went into safe mode then I figured I could start windows normally but on a low resolution. Now I try to update my GPU driver. I have a Radeon R9 270. I downloaded a setup but It said that it is not compatible with my build because the driver works on an x64 based system. Mine IS an x64. So looked up infortmation just so if I had known it wrong. I have AMD FX-8350 CPU. Yes, x64. I tried downloading the x32 version of the driver too but it tells me that it is not compatible either. So basically my computer won't run any of neither of x32 and x64? Well I need help. :|
