Unable to download photos in File Explorer from my phone

Windows Vista

I hadn't tried this for some months now but is something I used to be able to do. I connect my Galaxy S6 phone by using via USB to PC and go into File Explorer to select the images. Unfortunately, despite showing that my Galaxy is there, it says when clicking on the image, "this folder is empty" which I know it cannot be as I have loads of images on the phone. I have tried both ports and a different cable but get the same response.

Update failing to install

Windows Vista

Just logging my similar experiences as others here on my Dell XPS 9550 with m.2 SSD. I was having problems with a several update packages and after a system restore, I managed to get one or two to successfully install, but I'm now left with this one which goes through the whole update process to 100%, then fails and unwinds itself again, taking about an hour or more to do this entire cycle. Every time I wake up on the morning, it shows the login screen, and I log in and go to Windows Update and it shows the same file pending and asks me to restart or wait for the active hours. When I look in Event Viewer i find this: Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800F0922: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986). Update: Doing a bit of reading around it seems like my issue is likely to be that my System Reserved Partition (called EFI System Partition on SSDs apparently) is too small. Mine is set to 500MB which people say should be plenty, but I guess Windows is getting more and more bloated over time. I now need to go and spend money to install a 3rd party partition manager piece of software to extend it because Window's Disk Management utility doesn't allow it. Thanks Microsoft! Brilliant design there!

No Login Block

Windows Vista

Turning on the computer I get the screen saver with the date and time, hit any key and it will jump back to the screen saver without ever going to the login window. Turning the computer off and back on does not fix the problem. I also cut the electric power. I tried every key combination I could think of. The system had downloaded the last Windows 10 update (automated), I signed off the system, with the option to update and then logoff. It appears the system shutdown before the updates were completed. Since then the system jumps past the log-in box and I am unable to get into the system. (And I do not have a recovery CD.)

Windows Explorer high memory usage windows 10 pro

Windows Vista

Hi all, I seem to have an intermittant but recuring problem which has been occuring over several updates and for about 6 months. Namely a sudden and unexpected error message from Windows that it's own File Explorewr is using up all my memory (RAM) even if all I have is my desktop and no programs running or windows open. This can occur straight after boot up, after a few minutes of idle time, or after / during running a single program. For example. This evening I updated my copy of 'Nero Burning ROM' and rebooted my PC afterwards. I then sucessfully burnt an ISO file to a DVD and closed the 'Nero Burning ROM' program only to suddenly have the following: I have 16GB of RAM and have a memory usage monitor running Which suddenly showed 94%! with no windows open or programs running. It is not the small monitor program at fault either as I only installed it after I started getting these random error messages. Any ideas as to cause and how to fix this would be most welcome. I am running: Windows 10 Pro Build Windows 10 Pro V6.3 Build 10586.672 Intel Hasswell-Ei7 6 core Clocked to 4.4Ghz 16GB RAM ASUS X-99A Thanks for any help. It's driving me nuts! Delboy

checkdisk nightmare

Windows Vista

I have a Dell windows 8.1 PC which crashed for some reason a couple of times yesterday. I had KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR message come up, and when I restarted I noticed that Microsoftfsavailux was using a lot of memeory ..... but that's not the actual issue I face at the moment. I decided to do a disc check but when I tried I was told the disc was in use, would I like to have it run next time I start up. Of course I chose yes When it started it stuck on 11% overnight, about 9 hours I cancelled and ran it from the command prompt this morning ... It took 6 hours and all was well, no problems I started the PC and again and the chkdsk starts. again Tells me to press any key within 1 second to stop it, but it doesn't stop when I do. So I'm stuck with a PC that automatically goes to check disk on startup, but never stops checking the disc and I cant stop it doing it. Which means I can access my PC at all to do anything. Is there anything I can do or enter at the command prompt to stop it happening please? I have seen one suggestion elsewhere, but didnt work

Windows 10 does not send EAPOL-Logoff on user sign out

Windows Vista

Dear Community, I am looking for a guidance on the topic of how to enable/force Windows 10/8.1 to send EAPOL-logoff message after user sign out/logout from the computer. In my Wifi network environment, we do Machine and User authentication against AD on DC. Clients on Wifi obtain different levels of authorization based on the result of 802.1X PEAP authentication: -1st case: Machine authentiaction success only. -2nd case: User authentication success only. -3rd case: Machine AND User authentication success. When laptop boots up and stays at logon screen, Machine authentication only is completed (1st case). After User logs in, client gets authorization according to 3rd case. My problem is, that when User sign out/log out from the system leaving laptop at logon screen, there is no EAPOL-Logoff message send by Windows, and Authenticator (AP/Wifi controller) is not able to apply reduced access rights (1st case). Please advice what can I do to make Windows 10/8.1 send EAPOL-logoff when user sign out/log out of the system.

Windows 10 update stuck

Windows Vista

The laptop is stuck in a loop with "We couldn't finish updating. Restoring the changes. Do not turn off your computer" (rough translation) on the screen. I tried rebooting, but it just returns to the same screen again. It's been like this for an entire day now. I would appreciate any help.

What is Taboola, and is it dangerous?

Windows Vista

I've noticed on my Windows PC, MacBook Air, and iPhone, that I get this ad saying 'From Around The Web' sponsored by Taboola. From my research Taboola didn't seem to pose a security risk, but I am just getting second opinions. I've ran Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Windows Defender, and CCleaner, all of which claim I have no adware/malware. I've read mixed reviews as to whether Taboola is adware and or malware. I'm slightly concerned and would like to know your opinions. Should I be concerned about my security? Windows 10 Home Gateway NV79

Gaming on Windows 10: Microsoft Mahjong error code 101_107_1

Windows Vista

I have been through the various solutions (rebooting/updating/reinstalling) suggested to fix this error, but it is still there. I notice that facebook forum for Mahjong gamers shows that many have had the same problem, without any reply. As a player of this game for over three years , I must record my deep disappointment and hope this problem will be fixed, hopefully at your end, as soon as possible.

100% Disk usage.

Windows Vista

Since I downloaded windows 10, many many months ago, it seems that 90% of the time my disk usage is at 100% and I cannot operate my computer while it doesn't show any large programs running. I have performed a clean boot and have top class antivirus so as many other people agree it is windows 10. can anyone help me fix the problem?
