  1. So do I. One is called Administrator and the...

    So do I. One is called Administrator and the other, at least when Win 8 came out, was identified as Local/Admin (see the OP). As Windows has progressed, I've had to run more and more programs in...
  2. I think it speaks to the convoluted ways...

    I think it speaks to the convoluted ways necessary - or that MS thinks necessary - to improve security. Since it doesn't stop programs with their own installer, it really affects those without,...
  3. Your file organization makes absolutely no sense...

    Your file organization makes absolutely no sense to me. Nor does it have to. But that's not the topic here (and I'm not the type to contort my file organization to avoid dealing with a problem such...

    Win 7. I was an early final Win 8 adopter. About unzipping, I was referring to program updates whose contents I want to put directly into its program folder, that don't install but get copied in...
  5. Administrative rights seem more restrictive as Win 8 progresses

    I've found that as Windows 8 has progressed in versions administrative rights are being asked for more and more, and often denied. Among the areas I've especially noticed are 1) having to set or run...

    Perhaps I missed it, but I don't recall seeing that the OP actually telephoned Charter to report the problem to a real human voice. It's the kind of issue that would likely be forwarded to a tech...

    Turned out I did find the immediate cause: Unplugging the dac's USB power cable from the add-on USB card and putting into an external four-plex, still computer powered but from one of the mobo's...

    After posting here based on four straight clean shutdowns with the value set at 1, there were two straight restarts. So I set it back to 0, had a good shutdown for the night, but this morning a...

    Thanks gang, but I didn't see this going in the right direction, so I posted over on anandtech and the solution (so far) is as follows:

  11. OpenVPN registry error at Win 8.1 startup

    Win 8.1 Pro x64. For the past week, I've been getting the attached OpenVPN GUI error message at virtually every startup. So far I've tried the following:
    - making sure all OpenVPN executables are...
  12. You're of course correct, but how could the...

    You're of course correct, but how could the network module be the cause? The signal to the board from the cable modem is constant. If the integrated network module is malfunctioning, wouldn't that...

    Thanks for the ideas. I woke up this morning thinking it couldn't be the switch, since it's just getting a new electrical signal from somewhere. I haven't changed BIOS settings for awhile, but will...
  14. Anyone run into computer restarting on its own after shutdown?

    Since about a week ago, my computer has been restart sometimes about two to three seconds after it has seemingly shut down (via Win 8.1 shutdown or one of Karen's Show Stopper scripts). When it...

    Converting files to DVD player format

    I'm converting and burning some files (mkv, avi) to play on a DVD player that accepts "DVD format" only. I've been using Any Video Converter and Free Studio, and while I can make the conversions, I...

    Among other things, "KB 2911106 – a rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Win8.1, and Server 2012 R2" provides a fix that supposedly allows Sony DSC cameras to upload/integrate properly with programs like...

    Yeah, once I took C:\Windows out, it took 6 minutes with 100,000 files.

    Thanks. I also use SyncBack (Pro). I like two backups using different time frames and would prefer different programs doing them. Btw, since Win 8.1, I've had to take all of C:\Windows off...

    Thanks for the link. The solution there was to share a drive and then add it as a network connection. What does sharing a drive mean in this case? Mine is a single desktop computer setup.

    If it requires an external drive, why are the two choices showing internal? Read that article again: "There are other choices, but these two [external drive, network] provide the best options to...

    Thanks, but there's nothing new there in terms of what I've done. The answer lies in how Windows chooses which drives are available. Getting a feeling that File History is buggy.
  22. Getting File History to recognize desired drive

    Win 8.1 x64 Pro. In Win 8, I was using Windows backup and restore, but since that no longer exists, and probably wasn't a good idea anyway, I'd like to use File History. However, the HDD partition...

    Fred,
    It appears you are unaware of the in-place Win 8 repair that doesn't lose any third party programs (or virtually any). See...
