Chinese Characters Appearing In Windows

Aug 20, 2015

If I copy paste the line seen on screenshot, then this is what i get:


I'm 100% sure it's not malware or any other type of malicious software, so please don't start saying that my pc has a virus. What I'd like to know, is where it's coming from and why is windows 10 doing this?

In past, in win 7, i've seen similar chinese characters somewhere in documents and settings folders within some files, i was cleaning my files, going through all the folders in docs and settings and i saw some files having similar names.

It's a fresh install of windows 10, I haven't downloaded anything, but simple things, such as google chrome, ccleaner, winamp, skype ..etc, everything from trusted sources only, so clearly it's not a virus or malware, whatever it is, it's within windows 10. I'm just trying to figure out why my PC is going chinese on me.

Unable To Type Special Characters Since Upgrading?

Dec 9, 2015

I'm unable to type all special characters that require the Alt key to be pressed. €, ², ³, μ, and most importantly, @, are no longer possible with a German keyboard layout. I tried German German and Austrian German, and both failed to produce those signs. Normally, the @ sign is produced by pressing Alt+q, but since upgrading to Windows 10, nothing happens when I press Alt+q (or any other combination of Alt+letter).

Only German keyboard layouts seem to be affected, as I'm able to use Alt+letter combinations in other languages; just not in German.

Security :: Unknown Chinese App Preventing Signing Out

Aug 16, 2015

When signing out of windows 10 this week I noticed a message that appeared for a few seconds, telling me that an app was preventing signing out. The title of the app in question was expressed in what appear to be Chinese symbols. See attached photos of the message.I have never before seen an app or program like this(ie one with chinese symbols) and am concerned that it is something malicious such as spyware. I searched for this app on both task manager and on the program list (accessed via control panel), but couldn't find it, which makes me more suspicious - this could mean it is deliberately hidden, or simply that I am looking in the wrong place!For what it is worth, my McAfee subscription is up to date. Have just run a full scan - no issues detected.

Antivirus :: Bitlocker Inputs Multiple Characters In The Password Field

Oct 14, 2015

I have been using BitLocker for a long time now and in conjunction with Windows 10 for 3 months and today something weird happened. When I tried to insert my password at boot, when I pressed the Shift key in combination with any other key, it inserted tens of characters at once. Valid with any character I press while Shift is also pressed. I tried a different keyboard, same result. I removed Bitlocker and reinstalled it, same result. Reboots, etc. I tried it all.

Now the only way to input the password is to press Insert so I can see the characters, press CapsLock for the capital letters and delete all the additional 30+ characters that appear when shift is pressed.

Radeon 5770 Displaying Chinese Font In Minimize / Close

Jan 29, 2016

I have been using Windows 10 for months now. It used to work fine, but recently when I hover over eg. the Minimize icon in a window, the popup displays what looks like Chinese characters. It isn't all the time, but gets worse the longer I use the PC after a reboot. Sometimes after just an hour or two of use, the PC is unusable because I can't read for example the pop-up under power: Shut Down/Reboot/whatever. It's all in some eastern language font when it started out as English. I just installed the newest Catalyst suite today (Install Manager 8.0.916.0, Display Driver 15.200.1062.1004, Control Center 2015.0804.21.41908). Not sure if this is a display driver problem or if I'm running out of resources? or what?

Pop-up Keeps Appearing

Nov 20, 2015

I keep getting a random pop-up that appears periodically throughout my work day. I ran 'sfc /scannow' and analysed the log file, but it is difficult to decipher for me. The only conclusion I can arrive at, since the problem only started occurring fairly recently, is that a Windows Update is the culprit. The screenshot I am providing states that, "User Data Access_XXXXX has stopped working." The 'XXXXX,' I believe refers to a memory allocation since it is different quite frequently. The most recent one is: "47c0B," but it has been several others.

Message (This App Can't Run On This PC) Appearing At Startup?

Aug 24, 2015

Here's exactly what happens: I turn on my computer. Get to the lockscreen, tuck that away, enter my password so I can get to the desktop. Right when the desktop starts to appear, I get the above message.

When I searched this message online, all I found were various references to programs and apps. But this message doesn't appear when I run a program or app -- it just appears when my computer starts up.

I've looked in the "Startup" tab of Task Manager to see if there are any apps that shouldn't be there; I've also looked in Programs and Features to see if I've installed any programs recently that might be causing a problem. This has been happening for the past, oh, 3 or 4 days now. And honestly, the only installation/update I can see is a Windows 10 update.

Rollback No Longer Appearing

Jul 11, 2015

I was intending to roll back to 7 before the final release of 10 so that be licence carries over, but while I was in the windows leading up to the roll back I ended up clicking cancel on the last window. Now the option to "Revert back to Windows 7" is no longer there. I have tried rebooting and I am just now seeing if installing updates will bring it back, but how I may be able to get this function back it would be pretty rad. I won't have to do a clean install of 7.

I have an external hard drive connected to my W10 PC. Sometimes when I boot (not all the time) I get an error message that the recycle bin is corrupted because the drive is showing as one of the drives that utilizes the recycle bin. It then asks me if I want to empty the recycle bin, which I do. I then go in and change the recycle bin properties to NOT include that drive path.

Virtual Machine Error Keeps Appearing

Jan 3, 2016

I downloaded Deus Ex Human Revolution DC, and after beating it, I wanted to go in with a trainer and commit some wanton shenanigans. I'm a simple man like that.
However, the trainer, which worked before, has suddenly refused to work by giving me the "Sorry, this application cannot run under a Virtual Machine." prompt.
Hyper V is already off and my Antivirus is disabled + Windows Defender. It should be working no problem. Sadly, no.
How to shut off this Virtual machine or fix the problem in some way?

Networking :: NAS Not Appearing Under Network In File Explorer?

I have been having issues with my WD MyCloud NAS not showing up under Network on the left navigation pane of File Explorer. I am able to access the NAS by entering the host name (WDMYCLOUD) in the address bar in File Explorer. I was able to find a solution that fixes this and makes my NAS appear in Network as expected. The solution involved running Command Prompt as Admin, executing some commands, then restarting the computer.

What I would like to do is automate this process by creating a batch file that will:

Updates :: Random Folders Appearing On C Drive?

Aug 19, 2015

I have a few Windows 10 systems with clean installs (not upgraded) whose C: drives are filling up with random hex named folders; over 50K of them. From what I have read, this could be related to temporary update folders, but they are not being deleted. The folders are named something like "00b332a3dcbf71fb88" and contain 0K of data, but they are extremely annoying.

What these folders could be and if there is a way to either stop these folders from appearing or at minimum, to redirect them to another location not on the root of the C: drive? If these are related to Windows updates, I will not be able to shut those off as these systems are all part of a group policy that keeps them on. I can shut down that policy, but prefer not to have to do that.
