I did a download of Windows 10 a while ago, but didn't update straight away. I now want to upgrade but I cannot find the file to do so.
I used to get notifications telling me to do the upgrade. The reminders really annoyed me as they kept popping up in the most inopportune times, so I turned off the reminders off according to the instructions for not getting the reminder.
What to do to the actual upgrade from Windows 7.1 to Windows 10.?
I need finding the folder for the games I downloaded from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10. It gets annoying finding games through the search tool and having them pinned to my taskbar would also be inconvenient. I would rather they were in a folder.
I uninstalled the update that added the Windows 10 app to windows 7 because it never showed up in the first place. Now Windows update can't find the file again to download. IS there any way I can get the download file back or am I stuck until they release another update?
I was recently e-mailed a PDF file from a friend and when I went to download it, it showed up like this. [URL] ....
When I tried to open it, it asked me what program I would like to use. I was able to open it up with adobe reader and I was able to view it in the e-mail that it was received in. However, when I tried attaching the file to an e-mail for a different recipient, I could no longer view it in the e-mail and it still downloaded the same way in the imgur link.
The only way I was able to fix this was I saved the pdf from the original e-mail to my google drive, then I downloaded it to my computer from my google drive, and it actually showed up as a pdf file.
My question is, why was I able to view it through the gmail pdf reader when I first received it, but when I downloaded it, it showed up with no extension?
Downloaded the iso and all seemed good , the compatible report said all was good . But now on the upgrade it has been stuck at 34 % for around 1 hr . I do have the circle with the little circles spinning ?
Downloaded files disappear in w10 home.They are not anywhere, not even in file history. Recuva revovery software does not show anything.

I was erasing a movie (The Mists of Avalon). The folder with the files inside could not be deleted, so I opened the folder and deleted each item one by one. But one file could not be deleted. It was called "installer.exe" (without the quotation marks) and weighed 0 Kb.Eraser could not get rid of it and rmdir q/ s/ The Mists of Avalon did not erase it either. how to get rid of that file and folder?
I have a custom hosts file which has a lot of entries redirecting back to 127.0.0.1 (this is normal). One of my DNS servers is being updated, so I added a new entry to the hosts so I could get to my sites. This worked fine.
After about 30 minutes I noticed I'd lost access to my site and when I checked my hosts file it's reverted back to how it was first thing this morning. All of my custom entries are there apart from the one for my server.
So something is monitoring and resetting it.. I've ZoneAlarm firewall and anti virus, avast anti virus and super anti spyware installed. I'm assuming it's one of them, but I'd like to be sure.
Is there any way to monitor the hosts file and see who/what is changing it ?
I was transferring all my photos on my phone to a folder on my desktop, named 'Photoa'. A couple of seconds after the last photo was copied over I watched the folder suddenly disappear from the desktop. I was not performing any action at the time.
A search of the computer has failed to find it, a check of the recycle bin turned up empty and I also attempted to use 'Recurva', which didn't find a single photo (about 400 or so were copied to the missing file).
The only clues are when I search for 'Photoa' on the computer, which gives:
A broken shortcut at "C:UsersDanielAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsRecentPhotoa"
A broken internet shortcut at "file:///D:/User%2520Data/Desktop/Photoa"
I'm not sure where to start, I am quite desperate to get the folder back as I cut/pasted my pictures - I do have a backup but this problem happened seconds after transferring!
My neice had a virus which I successfully cleaned out, but now every time I start up the laptop I get an error message that it couldn't load "C:Usersher nameAppDataLocalCall KitCallKit.dll" and I am having a real trial with attempting t identify what program is calling for the absent .dll file.
One thing that drives me bonkers is having a mouse pointer open any file whose name I might inadvertently hover over for a few seconds. I want files to open ONLY when I double click them. In earlier versions of Windows it was easy to turn the open on hover feature off, which I always did. However there is no option to turn it off in Windows 10 that I can find anywhere in Settings.
Been trying M. Reflect free edition on a Dell Studio XPS 8000. I did as usual and created a boot rescue CD with the PE file with no problem. Then I continued to make an image of my boot disk C and save it on my hard drive D.
Went to D and the image is there. Next I booted with the restore disk without problems, but after choosing restore, I can't find the image that was created on the D hard drive. I noticed that the naming of the drives also has changed and as such I looked everywhere but I can't find the image and as such I can't restore.
So I used a AWESOME custom picture for my lockscreen. I look at it so much, I realized I wanted it as my desktop. Only one problem....I cant find the damn picture! Where I put it on my computer. Shouldn't windows be maintaining a copy of the file somewhere? WHAT CAN I DO?
