Hard Drive went out-Windows?

Windows Vista

Hi my hard drive went out in my computer and I'm having to buy a new one. On my computer it shows the product key to that computer which i'm assuming is the key to windows. If I get a new hard drive shouldn't I be able to put windows back on my computer without having to pay anything? Do I need to call Microsoft and get a new code or something? I've never had this done before and I really don't want to have to buy a new copy of windows just to get it on my new hard drive. I know you can download the disk for free but I have to have the key to finish it.

Downloading from Windows 8.1 Store

Windows Vista

Each time I try to download an app from windows 8.1 store it starts up but after a minute or two it stops and tells me my connection is too slow and to use a different connection. Somehow I don't think going to an internet cafe or another location will do the trick. I don't know much about the innards of the computer so I hope someone can help me on this one without being technical.

PC crashed - Error Event ID 10016 - DistributedCOM Win10

Windows Vista

My laptop crashed just now - BSOD. After a few minutes it restarted itself. The event log shows two such events: The Event Log Online Help took me to this page - no Help there. (1) I've searched and found a solution >> in this thread. << but it refers to Win8.1 Will it work for my Win10 as well? (2) I checked the Systems log and found that this is the 14th time I got the error in the last 36 hours but it hasn't shut down my laptop so might there be another cause? Could it be this 'bugcheck error': The only other error was this Critical Error: Oh dear - always at the weekend. I'd very much appreciate your help please. PS I saved my first snip to One Drive but it refused to save the others, saying 'cannot be saved here - find a new location'. I've no idea if this is related.

Windows-10, WMP-12, W-Defender, OneDrive, Groove, MS Edge, Bing, etc.

Windows Vista

Hello, In the past few years, I experienced so many problems created by Windows-10, and I read online so many questions from angry customers and unsatisfactory answers related to W-10 that I sincerely regret it deeply that I accepted the upgrade from W-8.1 to W-10. Even with W-XP that I still have on my old laptop, many things are going smoother than W-10 despite the discontinuation of support from Microsoft. We are now in January 2017, eighteen months after the release of W-10 in mid-2015. Yet, we are still talking about the same problems as if nobody in Microsoft Corporation is listening. Frustration creeped in ever since I was prompted to “upgrade” to W-10. Why would any intelligent individuals go backward, abandon things that worked, and opt to flawed new technology unless they are doing it for financial gains? I have been always asking myself whether these are real technical problems that the MS engineers are incapable of solving or whether they are just marketing tricks to oblige consumers into buying the so-called premium services. Giving the insatiable greed of corporations, the latter possibility is the likeliest one. In any case as an IT consumer, I need solutions for the problems that MS people created for us in the first place. Here are some of the problems that need solutions: 1. In many ways, Windows-10 is an obvious regression after a bumpy “upgrading” from W-8.1 on my Asus Transformer laptop. Here is a summary: The default Bing search engine relatively takes a long time to yield results, which are mostly irrelevant to the keyword I am searching. When I compared its results with Google, Yahoo, and other search engines, I decided to abandon Bing and never looked back. The Windows frames are colorless to grey, and there is no way to customize them. The Groove does not open smoothly. Not all my MP3 audio files showed up on Xbox, i.e. Groove, and those are shown they read “Unknown”. When I search within the music collection for a particular file, I get mixed results including MS documents that have nothing to do with my search keyword. There is no possibility of shuffling 2-3 audio files. The email Manager, which I set up, disappeared, and it took me several trials and errors for months until I fixed it. 2. The Windows Defender is not strong enough to offer reliable protection against regular viruses, Trojans, and malwares. In the past, I experienced for the first time on my Asus laptop W-10 many self-installing malwares such as “update eye perform”. It took me enormous efforts to get rid of them. Also, I have been confronted with attacks from very malicious or potentially unwanted software, that represents “high-risk potential threat”, such as: - dnsatlantic.exe - SoftwareBundler: Win32/Poka… - BrowserModifier: Win32/Diplu… - TrojanDropper: Win32/Blakam… In addition to many quick and detailed scans with Windows Defender, I manually removed the self-installed malware program “dns unlocker version 1.4”. The MS Edge was completely taken over by the so-called “Critical website”. I had to force the computer manually to shut down several times to overcome the rapidly appearing pop-up windows. This reveals the weakness of Windows Defender, MS Edge, and OneDrive against self-installing malwares. For a long while now, I am using “Adblock Plus” software that does better job than Windows Defender alone. 3. The Windows Media Player version 12 for Windows-10 is many-steps backward compared to previous versions 8 to11. First, I needed to consult with online communities to find out the menu bar, library mode, and skin mode. But, then I found the “Save as” feature greyed out, i.e. disabled for new downloaded or even existing music files that are not protected. This has nothing to do with licensed or unlicensed audio/video files. Second, whether I put music files on OneDrive or offline, the audio quality deteriorated with Windows-10 compared with W-8. I tried and failed to install offline version of WMP-11 on my laptop W-10. Whether it is a technical setback from MS or deliberate business trick it is shameful what MS is doing. Previous versions of WMP were working just fine. 4. OneDrive Free Storage from 30GB down to 5GB On OneDrive, you reduced the free storing capacity from total 30GB down to 5GB in 2016, which is definitely unacceptable. What a shameful business decision. However, I have to thank the decision-makers of MS that they inadvertently reminded me to use my good old memory sticks that are not only big, safe, and efficient but also I can use any of them without the need for Internet or WiFi connection. In addition, when the files are uploading to OneDrive on my laptop, the Internet browser stops working until the uploading process is finished. 5. Needless to say, “Groove” was not a progress or a smart replacement for Xbox. Synchronizing my Collection is pain in the neck, to say the least. It does not allow me to play more than one audio file at a time on the laptop. Therefore, I am using the offline audio files, which defeat the purpose of OneDrive and Groove. Trying to listen to any song on my smartphone from Collection on OneDrive is hit-and-miss in beast case scenario. The song may start from the end, jump to the start, then to the middle, stop, and go again erratically. I uninstalled and reinstalled OneDrive on my mobile device but nothing changed. Eventually, I bypassed “Groove” and use MP3 files directly from OneDrive – if they ever work. Furthermore, it is not possible to play any music file from OneDrive on my smartphone while I am texting or checking my emails. Currently, I can only play one song at a time, and if I minimize the window, it stops immediately. 6. Displaying Menu Bar in Microsoft Edge In Internet Explorer, it was possible to display the Menu Bar at the top of the screen. However, there is no Menu bar in Microsoft Edge. This opted me, and millions of users, to abandon Microsoft Edge altogether. 7. Fake cybersecurity The multilayered security measurements starting with lock screen are fooling us into a fake sense of security when they are in fact useless against amateur and professional hackers. The publically announced one-billion hack of Yahoo email addresses are just the tip of the iceberg. For me, it seems that these security steps are inefficient and just make us work hard for MS, Yahoo, MSN, and other corporations. It is not anybody’s business if I, hypothetically, choose “123456789” as a password, because even with best password I have created and the Program has approved as “excellent”, the security problems persist on many levels, and therefore, they are a waste of time and energy. For god’s sake, save us from these fake double, triple, and other measurements when they do not live up to their names. 8. Unnecessary notifications related to email accounts on W-10 tablet I have been asked repeatedly to fix my various email accounts on Windows-10 tablet when I already have updated my password and reentered it several times. The notifications with sound tone just keep coming. Other annoying notifications include “reconnect file history drive” and promotions for Office 365. This issue does not exist on my laptop or smartphone that do not run on W-10. 9. Office 365 is a disaster disguised as a great help. In November 2016, Microsoft offered me an upgrade from MS 2013 to Office 365 free for one year. When I informed myself about the product, I found out that, it is a “cloud office”. Since I had bad experience with “cloud documents”, I respectfully declined their “free” offer. The bad experience is related to the need for Internet connection, slow saving and processing, frequent freezing, and vulnerability of security. Beside these serious disadvantages, I did not find any new benefit from this “cloud thing”. It is much easier if I email the Office document to myself whenever I need to edit it outside my home. Until Microsoft Corporation fixes these and other problems related to Internet Service Providers and Mobile Internet, the “cloud technology” is not ready just yet. When we, the consumers, spend a lot of time and energy correcting the mistakes of big corporations’ products, and perfecting their flawed systems free more than enjoying the service itself for which we pay generously. When we consider the wasted time on trying to fix problems created by Microsoft for its clients there will certainly be many gigantic worldwide class action lawsuits against the giant corporation, Microsoft, which will bring it to its knees to stop its malpractice on international level. I would appreciate any practical feedback and solutions from the MS employees and online community. Thank you for your time. Al
