Apps :: Online Radio Station Starts Playing By Itself
Feb 10, 2016
Every once in a while a local radiostation comes on without me asking for it.After a long search, i found that a process called "window.media. background player.exe" is doing this .When i stop that process, the music stops...But sometimes the next day and sometimes the next week or so, it's there again..
after upgrading from Win7 Ultimate with Office 2007 to Won10 pro, every time I star Excel or Word or PowerPoint the Windows Installer screen appears and then asks for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Development Edition.ENU disk.
This is not okay at all. How can I make them not mute when I minimize them? Someone asked me to go to Settings>Privacy>BackGround Apps.iHeart radio is set to on and that has no difference. Groove music is not listed.
I need Windows 10 to boot directly to a program. Whatever I try .vbs, .bat or just shortcut in Startup folder, it always starts minimized to task bar. When I click on the task bar it gets blown up full screen.
Once I turn off the Tablet mode it starts good, maximized.
How can I solve this so it boot in Tablet mode AND start the program in proper size?
NOTE: I use touch screen but I dont think it maters.
I'm using a Dell E7240, did a fresh install of Windows 10. I can pick up all sorts of WIFI connections and connect to them successfully.
However when I wanted to use my internal 3G modem it tells me that the "radio is off" and I can't enable this in settings? Its greyed out, f I enable flight mode is greys out the WIFI and Bluetooth switches. When I disable flight mode it allows me to turn WIFI and Bluetooth off/on but "radio" remains greyed out.
Checked BIOS settings, checked driver for the Mobile Broadband Card, disabled and enable the adapter. Still does not want to allow me to enable the radio. I can manage the SIM PIN so I can change it or turn on or off.
It even shows me the network provider if I disable the SIM PIN, but the radio remains off!
I have bought Gold Touch HDDS-U3 docking station, I plugged both usb cables to the computer (one to SSUsb port and one to regular port), waiting for 30 minutes while it was turn off (for battery charging). After that I insert a 3.5' HDD and turn it on. Nothing happen. there is no red or green light and the device doesn't appear in Disks Management.
I am using a Sharkoon Quickport DUO Docking station, in which you can mount barebone hard drives.The problem is, that when I try to transfer files from an external hard drive to - for example - my internal hard drives, I get the following error after a few seconds, and the transfer stops:
Get started videos wont play also videos in new apps downloaded from the store wont play. videos play fine in browsers and downloaded content. I am connected to the internet, (don't post things like check your conection or other obvious replies) this is a conflict or update issue I think.
After I upgraded to Win 10 from 7, I started getting this bizarre issue when video files would crash in both VLC and MPC, but not Windows Media Player. The larger the video, the more guaranteed the crash. I've reinstalled MPC, VLC, and Windows 10, but the issue still remains.
I recently updated to windows 10 and haven't had too many problems, although my Toshiba video player gives me audio but not video when playing dvds. This isn't usually a problem for me unless I'm somewhere that doesn't give me internet access, that's when I'll put on a dvd. My question is how do you fix this? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling without success. The only other thing I can think of is to go back to windows 8, but I don't really want to do that just yet.
I tend to have Spotify playing whenever I'm gaming. In the past when my wife would switch to her name on the computer Spotify would keep playing with no problems & I would be able to control it from my phone. With Windows 10, it stops playing the moment she switches to her name & I can't get it to play from my phone.
So I'm having a strange problem on my computer that I can't seem to fix. Youtube videos will not play after being left idle, on the videobar, it will show that the video is loading, but it wont play even if it says it is. I can't reinstall windows because I am dualbooting linux and I don't have the Windows bootloader to go into Recovery options, and even if I could, I don't want to uninstall Linux because it's fun to have another OS to use.
EDIT: I can fix it after restarting, but I've been doing that solution for days and it is annoying. It also affects all browsers. For example. if it happens in Chrome, I cant watch videos in Firefox
i noticed that after updating to build 10547 i cant play music and minise the app anymore. this but happened a while ago back on windows 8 and it just went away i think but its very annoying, i have to use vlc to listen to music now and i like groove music
Just Yesterday upgraded from 8.1 to 10 with out any problems. But, Unless fast start up is disabled, windows will start by itself a few minutes later after I shutdown. Did not have this problem before with 8.1.
Always had fast startup selected, matter of fact, never had to worry about it, had no problems when shutting down, it stayed off until I turned it on. Now since upgraded to 10, the only solution so far to stop the computer from starting up by itself after shutdown, is to disable fast start.
I recently noticed that whenever i hibernated my laptop, after a few hours when i would go to open it, my battery would be completely depleted even though i had it on full charge when i hibernated it...
A few days later i found out, or what i thought was happening, that the laptop wasn't hibernating..Some times it would, sometimes it wouldn't..
Today i found out that the laptop does hibernate, but randomly it boots itself up after a random number of minutes..
First it boots up to the windows logo, then fades to a black screen, then powers off, and then in 5 seconds, it starts again, this time completing the boot and getting me back to how i left the laptop when i hibernated..
I recently upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10. but ever since I have a problem. I shut the computer down (start bar, power and shut down) and at some point a few hours later the computer starts up again on its own but I haven't changed anything so can only pin point it to the upgrade.
My PC is a home build with ASUS mother board, XENON CPU and 16 GB of RAM; it has run flawlessly for two years on Win 7 Pro; I changed to the "free" Win 10 dwnld and everything ran smoothly for past 3 months. Started up today and "no screen" with the typical bios info and nothing but darkness. I'm not sure if this is a virus security problem since my past experiences all had screen feed back with bios access prior to Windows starting. Assuming some villain attacked my PC at its heart by somehow messing up the bios set up, I tried restoring any lost or corrupted files using a flash drive with the ASUS ROM file on the MB disc as well as a latest downld. Still no relief. If not a security matter or a Win 10 fault, perhaps the mother board failed at some innocuous point which allows the board to function with all fans running and using power. I thought the NVidia adapter card could be at fault and installed a tested spare with no change in lack of video for the bios. Still have to test the power circuits and will let you know of any success.
Upgraded windows 7 to 10, now computer starts only after second power up. The first startup just freezes but second works OK. How to avoid this? In the mean time I just let computer sleep instead of shutdown.
Why are Windows 10 bootups and program starts so slow?
I upgraded to Windows 10 shortly after it became available for download. As this computer came with Windows 8.1 installed, I wanted to get rid of it ASAP, I would have put Windows 7 on it but I didn't want to purchase a 64 bit version of Windows 7 when the upgrade to Windows 10 would be free.
All in all, Windows 10 isn't all that much different from Windows 7. With a little effort, I have it set up to run just like Windows 7 was on it. The main problem with Windows 10 is that it boots REALLY SLOW, and it is also really slow at starting programs. As far as the start up programs that run in the background not counting my virus, and spyware programs, there are about 10 programs. Try as I might, I just can't figure out how to get rid of them. There are two that are brand name specific which I'd LOVE to get rid of, or stop from starting, and the rest seem to be just background programs that Windows 10 just seems to HAVE to have run. Other than those things, I think that Windows 10 is a lot better than Windows 8.1 ever was.
Yesterday i got a second screen that is smaller than my main screen. I was playing csgo and hearing music at the same time and it was smooth. Today I got home and started to play csgo without music and csgo has like minor freezes like every 2-3 seconds it will freeze for a split second.
My PC specs are: core i5 4430 @ 3.00 Ghz 8 gigs of ram gainward geforce gtx 650
I am running csgo only on the main screen and not on both. The lags occur also on youtube.
I am using windows 10 for 6 months, from the two last weeks on, it was impossible to watch my favorite TV program. For the edge appear a message : Error loading media: File could not be played. Through the google crome it is impossible too, appear a message: Can not load M3U8: No levels in manifest. Before it works great, at the same TV online. I suppose that something is wrong with windows media player, I updated the windows 10 and the problem continues.
