Can't Get IE To Stop Running In Background

Oct 30, 2015

Again today, when cleaning cookies and trying to find where the pop-ups came from I traced it to IE.. Well I do not use IE nor do I use Edge which is constantly running. I still love Firefox and Chrome. 
I went to Microsoft and there is info on there saying to uninstall it. Did that and still. I am very agravated only because it was hacked somhow, I did manage to remove the culprit but I hate the fact that I do not do anything to get into trouble and IE seems to.

When Typing Stop Loosing Focus By Software Running In Background

Mar 7, 2016

I am plagued by software running in the background such as backup that pops up a window over what I am working on. If I am busy typing and fail to notice my typing is wasted! It is extremely irritating. It isn't a particular Win 10 issue I suppose but that is what I am using.

Is there a Windows setting I can configure or is this purely in the hands of the rogue software?

Can Stop Multiple Programs Running

Dec 14, 2015

Have a windows problem I cannot get around. In windows 7 and 10 I am trying to prevent multiple copies of a program being opened from the desktop.

In XP, there was a Right Click Option. – Allow only one copy of the program to open. This is missing from newer Windows.

I have set up a neighbour’s windows 10, and wife regularly inadvertently runs email program multiple times. Is there any cure for this in windows 10?

Timer Keeps Running - Unable To Stop It Or To Close Current Program Or Web Page

Feb 25, 2016

Recently I have had a repeating issue with the (egg) timer running constantly. I have been unable to stop it or to close the current program or web page which appears to be involved. What is happening? I thought it might be due to RAM running too low but that does not seem to be the case --- I can keep a constant check on RAM and use utilities to free it up at will. So if not RAM, what is it and what can i do about it?

BSOD Then Swaps Background And Same Background As Main Desktop

Jan 7, 2016

My windows 10 Alienware laptop randomly blue screened and its not to shocking seeing, as all our windows 10 computers seem to bluescreen like its going out of style. but I googled the error tag and proceeded to fix it. The error was a Nvidia driver outdated and I then updated.

But I realized my background changed and to my horror was the same background as my primary PC (desktop gaming rig) There are a few ways the laptop and the desktop are connected Steam Geforce etc/Im a little concerned because I'm almost positive I have never once downloaded the same wallpaper on this laptop. and why it would steal my desktops wallpaper and replace it after BSOD I dont understand.

the BSOD was "System Thread Exception Not Handled".Here is the first set of my dxdiag.txt right after the bluescreen. too much text for an upload site

Still Running After Closing Lid And Shut Down

Aug 31, 2015

I have noticed this problem come up on my Dell 7537 (Check out my profile for details) when I close the lid to put the computer to sleep, the HDD light turns off, but the fan continues to run, even after several hours. When I open the lid back up, it is just a black screen where I have to hold the power button to do a hard reset. The same thing happens with initiating a shutdown sequence, although that one only does it some of the time.

Running Commands As Administrator?

Aug 14, 2015

I've just downloaded my Windows 10 upgrade and can't send mail through Outlook 13. On a forum I was told to run the sfc command but when I tried, I was told that I'm not an administrator. Mine is the only account on my PC, so surely I must be.

SSD Running Out Of Space Prematurely

Sep 21, 2015

I use a 120gb ssd on W10 build 10547 and always get rid of Windows old files for earlier builds. When I add up all the space used when C drive is opened in a new window, it comes to 31gb. Trouble is that the disk has actually 88.2gb used, confirmed also by Partition wizard. AMD uses 2gb, docs/downloads 9gb, windows 14gb, recovery 5gb, 32/64 programs 1gb, it really should be a slim system.

Changes Timestamps On Executables After Running Them?

Oct 1, 2015

Running w10 x64 and quite satisfied with it.

I usually do a "synchronize folders" within Total Commander for doing a differential copy of regular applications I download and use.

Anyway, I have found out that TC insists on some files being "different" or "changed" after I have ran them. I have found out w10 "automatically sets" current date and time to the executable file after it has been run. Is this normal? Or is it Windows Defender who does it?

When Shut Down PC - Programs Keeps Running

Sep 16, 2015

This is very strange, but for some unknown reason Windows 10 will not let me open some programs (e.g. file explorer, task manager, chrome. But, it will let me open Word, Excel and Edge. When I go to shut it down it just keeps running and running. It is almost like some App has taken over part of the system and won't let go. I have let it run for 4 hours and it never shut down. Obviously I have to disconnect the power cord and do a hard boot to get it back.

Automatically Running Facebook

Nov 27, 2015

For the last couple of days, when automatically running Facebook of of my START apps list, after Facebook opens for a while it just cancels out without any warning. No problems before this. However, if I run Facebook thru the Internet after signing "ON", no problem. I uninstalled the Facebook from START and re-installed it from Windows Store and it installed with no problem. However, when I try to run it automatically from START, the same happens. It runs for a while, and whenever it feels like, it just kicks me out and cancels. As I stated above, this has only been happening the last two days.

Mid Range PC Running Slowly

Jan 12, 2016

For some reason, ever since i built my computer back in late 2014, it has been going very slow. Programs take awhile to start up and the initial boot takes about 5-7 minutes. However, all the games I play run very well. I actually overclock both my CPU and GPU with low temps. My specs are as follows:

GPU: AMD Gigabyte R9 270 w/ 2gigs vRAM
CPU: AMD FX 6300 OC'd to 4.0GHz
RAM: 8gigs of 1333MHz DDR3
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P
PSU: Sentey 725w

Edit: I forgot to mention that the USB 3.0 ports rarely work. This has been a problem ever since I got the mobo. I will probably just call Gigabyte at some point if no is able to figure that out

Keeps Hard Disk Running At Or Near 100%

Oct 12, 2015

I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 when 10 was made available. I run 4GB RAM, A core2 6700 2.66 cpu, 64 bit, Comodo Firewall, spyware & antivirus. I did not notice this constant running of the HD using Win 7 with the same software.It seems something is demanding constant harddrive use at or near 100% much of the time. Some of the time there is such a demand the HD seems to be screaming for mercy.

I have checked for viruses, trojans, spyware and disk errors with nothing foundI use both online and offline malware check systems... nothing is ever found. I like the layout of the new Windows but I do not like all the demands it makes on the HD & CPU when I am trying to use it. Task MGR indicates CPU and HD usage is high usually above 30 percent for CPU & above 90% for HD.

Battlefield 4 Not Running Very Smoothly?

Aug 8, 2015

I recently installed Windows 10, the FULL VERSION, not the Technical ISO, and ever since then, Battlefield 4 has been running significantly worse on my computer. I don't know if it is just the operating system or what, but I am running a 980 ti with an i5 4670k cpu and I can definitely say that it was smoother on Windows 7. I am playing with everything on ultra settings at 1080p.
