Since Updating Three Applications Keep Starting Together

Aug 25, 2015

As per title the three applications are the stock Windows Calculator, Movies & TV, and Photos. All three always start up together. I've never seen it happen when I'm actually using the computer but if you leave it unattended for an hour or so when you come back they'll probably be there.

This never happened with Windows 7 prior to updating. I've considered maybe it might be some multi-media keyboard combination mixed with a stuck key but an nkro test doesn't show any key registering when it's not being pressed and no amount of deliberate keyboard mashing has made any of the applications start up.

No other problems with Windows 10, just this one bizarre issue.

Have To Start From Starting In Applications And Games Section

Jan 11, 2015

Windows 10 is going to be an OS for all (Phone,PC,Tablet and Xbox ). So, point of discussion is that Is Windows 10 support a new Application file different from exe and iso? Or it support old Apps too?

And windows 10 will come with its own features and again all win 8.1 Apps get outdated same what we saw in case of upgradation from win 7x to 8 and from 8 to 8.1 ;and that app situation again appear.

Partially Starting On Its Own

Mar 6, 2016

I have a problem where if I shut down properly, (not sleep, re-start or any other such incomplete close down) then during the night my computer will apparently attempt to start itself but it sticks with just the window icon on the screen. It is frozen at this point and I have to crash the computer before I can start it properly. I have to resort to crashing the system instead of shutting down to prevent this happening each night.

Some Applications Only Run As Administrator

Aug 11, 2015

I got this issue yesterday that some applications in my win 10 pc v10240 wont run until I run them as administrator. I thought I did something wrong because I was messing up with registry entries so I tried googling it but didn't find anything. Then today I decided to reinstall windows and after the clean install now the issue is happening again. I dont know what to do because the apps were working fine a few days ago but as from yesterday they wont even after the clean installation of windows. I have checked for viruses and such but nothing on my end.

Applications Won't Load

Sep 10, 2015

So I was coming from Windows 7, got my upgrade by using the usb method. Downloaded the tool from microsoft and installed W10 over W7. Everything was great, until I noticed every time I loaded Steam, it would show the process how ever many times in my processes, but never actually open. No matter how many times I would reinstall the Steam App or clean my reg and system, reboot, nothing. A friend suggested I do a clean wipe and install so I did.

Formatted my primary SSD drive and left my other 2 hard drives alone. Rebooted W10 and same problem after loading Steam. I tried all the above again, multiple installs of Steam, cleaning the system, reboots, whatever I could think of and can not get it to run. The Steam app will install then start to update and never update and stays running in my processes.

I was wondering if the problem is I am running 3 hard drives, my primary SSD with W10 only, and a bunch of steam apps and files games etc all still on my other 2 Hard Drives. Do I need to wipe my other 2 drives completely, fresh wipe my SSD and install w10 again? Not sure what the problem is. All my other friends with W10 have their steam working. I need to have this app run, as it is the portal into all my games I have purchased to play online. I have reverted to W7 until I can figure out what to do.

Oh and when I go back to W7, the Steam app loads right away and works. So this is a W10 issue.

My system:

Windows 7 Home Premium
Gigabyte Mother Board G1 Sniper H6
Bios Date 06/24/14 Ver:04.06.05
Intel Core i5-4690K CPU @3.50 GHz
Memory 16GB
Directx 11
Nvidia GTX970
Razer Deathstalker Keyboard
Razer Death Adder mouse
Samsung HD50HJ Hard Drive
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120gb ATA Hard Drive
WDC WD10EZEX-00ZFA0 ATA Hard Drive

Selecting A File By Starting To Type Its Name?

Oct 30, 2015

In Windows 7, and before, in Explorer, I could start to type a name of a file that I wanted and Explorer would jump down to that file, but under Windows 10, it automatically starts doing a search of the folder. As such, I am forced to scroll down and find the file manually. There has to be a way to disable the automatic search feature and let it run like before.

Sep 20, 2015

I have a ASUS N53S and after having upgraded to windows 10, I came across a few issues. The update when well and windows 10 is working on my laptop, however, I have an issue where I am presented with a black screen when i start my computer. I do see a ASUS screen and a windows boot screen before it goes black, however after the windows boot screen passes (the one with the blueish window icon) the screen goes to black, but it is still on (meaning the monitor is still turned on just not displaying anything). This issue occur after i restart ( few days before doesn't on the laptop). I try to on and off the laptop for few times but still the same problem and the last time i restart again and left it for a night and it doesn't change which still in black screen. So, now what should i do to let it display with desktop since now still in black screen with movable mouse.

Hard Crash Whenever Starting A Game

Mar 17, 2016

Whenever I launch a game, started with Dota 2 as the only one, now proceeds with The Division and Subnautica (Those are the games i've tested.) it crashes almost instantly, no error reports, no BSOD, nothing, just a shutdown of the power.

Tried forcing -dx11 on dota, which worked for a while, but then it started again. Now, I've reinstalled windows, clean install, still crashes. Tried new CPU-paste, not a lot of work. Tested heat of my CPU, get´s a bit hot, but shouldn't be enough to turn off.

Installation :: What To Do About Existing Applications

Feb 10, 2016

I'm planning on moving from Win 7 to Win 10 via a new install (although it seems I should upgrade first - I'll read about that). My questions have to do with my Win 7 applications...

#1) Is there a list someplace of applications that need to be "de-registered" so they can be registered on the new Win 10 clean install? For example, I'm pretty sure the Adobe suite has to be deregistered - maybe MS Office too?

#2) Is there a way to move an application? By that I mean I either don't have the original install files anymore or in some cases I've found some useful software from [URL] .... where you download the install file but it has to be installed and registered that day. If you wait a day, you can't register it. Any way to "move" these programs? I realize generally you can't just move applications and then the added complication of going from Win 7 to Win 10.
