Windows 10 multiple errors

Windows Vista

My PC (Sony VAIO All-in-one) has been on Win10 over a year and was working OK, except that each day the first attempt to access outlook.com mail service failed, as did first attempt to print. These were always resolved by re-boot. But that was tedious, so I moved the event that triggers my back-up (a script based on ROBOCOPY) from the middle of the night to early morning, and caused it to provoke a reboot after the back up. I had to alter the times of some other events, but not their details. Then I got more failures. I disabled some of the events that didn’t look very useful (e.g. to do with feedback) but I’m still getting many failures in the event log. I have run chkdsk which says there are no problems on the disk. There are now critical or serious events about 18 times a day, the reasons being such as (I abbreviate): - System has rebooted without doing a clean shut-down first - Timeout waiting for Roxio - Distributed COM server - BugCheck - Failed to regenerate printer driver info (re: XPS doc writer) - NetTcpActivator failed b/c NetTcpPortSharing had failed to start Any suggestions?

PC crashed while in sleep mode, seems corrupted.

Windows Vista

Hi, A few days ago i left my PC on sleep while I did the same, but when I woke up I noticed it had shut down. I booted it up, got the usual "your PC was not shut down correctly" message, and thought nothing of it until I saw the login screen was in a very low resolution. When i logged in my desktop was also very low res, and nothing was being displayed on my second monitor. I was immediately inundated with .dll error messages for every program that usually launches on startup, and could not launch anything myself. I went to open the control panel, but before I did, I noticed the sleep and hibernate options were now greyed out and unselectable. I opened the device manager, to find that my 970 was now just listed as "Display", and had driver problems. When i tried to install new drivers however, it failed, and the error message i received claimed "the parameter was incorrect". This kind of problem is beyond my abilities, and I would very much appreciate the help anyone could give me, if you need more information just ask.

Win-10 Start Screen wont display

Windows Vista

had problems performing a restart. Power was disconnected during shutt9ng down. When I turned it back on I kept getting errors saying Windows 10 could not start. finally it let me do a recovery, followed that with special recovery, that finally led me to run the option to start Win-10 allowing it to repair what was preventing it from starting. Every thing seems to be working now except I when I click the start button on the task bar it does nothing. It also says I have 4 notiffications but when I click it it doesn't open. If I select open action center from the system tray it too does not open. Can anyone help?

Microsoft Sudoku game

Windows Vista

I've been playing this game fine since Windows 10 first came onto my computer. Now it either won't load, or if it loads it will not finish the loading and get to the game, or will stop in middle of game. Game is saved but it may take several days to be able to get to it again and then it may still stop in the middle. The place where it stops is not always the same. Sometimes it will get to game and then quit a little later, othertimes it gets to where I see Game in Progress, and when I click it goes back to the Game Menu. I did do a reset and that did not help.

your windows license will expire soon.

Windows Vista

I bought a surface pro 4 about 6 months ago. it had a pre-installed windows 10 build 10240. 2 days ago it started to pop up the warning message: "your windows will expire soon". then I updated via a media creation tool to build 14393 (anniversary update version 1607). but the message keeps to pop up. and the expiration date is in 1 month. I tried command prompt: slmgr.vbs /ato it says: "Error 0xC004F074 The Software Licensing Service reported that the computer could not be activated. No Key Management Service (KMS) could be contacted. Please the Application Event Log for more information" slmgr.vbs /slui.exe 4 it says: "can't activate Windows by phone. Contact your system administrator for more info" and I have no other clue to do. Please help.

Windows 10 auto-updates

Windows Vista

I have frequently activated Windows Update and waited for completion in vain. I'm using Windows 7 and have the auto-update activated, but the last update shown is 10/1/17 and remembering how frequently I used to find updates coming through in the past, makes me think the updating process is not working correctly. As I said I have tried the manual updating, but that tends to suggest there could be an updating issue. Help on this would be appreciated, as I don't want gremlins paying me a visit.

Rolling back to Windows 7 from Windows 10, then back to 10 when support for 7 ends.

Windows Vista

We purchased a Microsoft certified refurbished desktop pc with Windows 10 for our mother. She is having issues with Windows 10, so we're thinking of rolling back to Windows 7, which was originally on the computer. If she decides she would like to try Windows 10 again at a later time, is that possible without having to purchase the upgrade? When Windows 7 support ends we'll have to do something. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
