  • installed elements 14 on new pc using windows 10 and all the menu commands are grayed out.

    This can happen if you are using the eLive currently.

  • I am not able to open anything that uses Windows Explorer and get the message as Windows Explorer (not responding)

    Original title: I'm not able to open anything that uses Windows Explorer

    I'm not able to open anything that uses Windows Explorer.

    When I try to open: My Documents, Control Panel, any Office application, etc. - the window remains empty and said "Windows Explorer (not responding)."  My desktop icons are filled and I am able to open the Task Manager.

    Any help is greatly appreciated?  Also, I'm not a technology person, so please be very percise.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the help.

    I had installed the update of MS Windows Defender KB915597.  After doing a restore to the point of restoration, taken at the time of the update, I am now able to open Windows Explorer.

    Seems that something in this update does not work with my system.  I have had no other problems with Windows Defender updates in the past - it was the first.

    Thank you.

  • All Windows updates and all the patches and individual installation on my program

    Is someone can you please tell me why every windows update fills up my programs?
    I have about 30-40 on my all programs.
    Can I remove all?
    I don't have this problem on my other pc just this laptop.
    Thank you in advance.


    It seems that no one is able to answer this question here. If you have 2 possibilities:

    -disable the update of windows to avoid an additional installation of new updates and etc...
    -go to "Add/Remove Applications" and uncheck the 'Show updates' (or something similar). This box should be at the bottom of this window

    Otherwise, you should check out other, more associated microsoft forums, or just google a bit around to find an answer.

  • I use Lightroom 5 and all my files are gone.  I have all the pictures, but they are not classified more.  How can I get them back in their cases?

    I downloaded the day before and everything was fine.  Open 5 Lightroom the next morning and all records have disappeared, spill of thousands of photos in "All photographs."  I also can not download for Lightroom more.  I get the message: the following files were not imported because they could not be read.  Thank you for your help.

    A copy of Θcran of exactly what your LR screen looks like might help.

    Do you still have the 'Files' header in the sidebar below featuring "all photographs"?

    What happens if you right-click on the photo and select "go to folder in the library.

    The error message on the new imports you report confusion often really means that LR cannot write where you tell him.

    I changed the HDD with a SSD. Now I want to restore the system (Windows 8) and all the drivers and applications. To do this I use (with DVD) HP Recovery Manager and I choose to install a clean install of the system, drivers and applications. After the copy of the set in the new hd, when the computer is reset, I get the message that there is no system in my HD!
    Why? What can I do?

    Thank you

    Enter the BIOS
    Go to the tab system set
    Scroll Startup Options
    Go to boot order
    Move the current SSD as the first device by following the instructions in the right pane

  • When you use Windows Explorer to view the files and folders, the thumbnails of image files appear briefly then are replaced with the default icon of the image file. I tried the answers to similar problems, but none worked.

    Browse the folders with image files, I cannot see the thumbnail icons for images correctly.  I know, it should be possible, but I can't do it.

    When I first open a folder in Explorer, I see the correct images for a fraction of a second, then all images are replaced by the thumbnail of the image file (which looks like part of a digital SLR).
    I put all folders to display picture to display the preview and the filter, and the "always show icons never thumbnails" is not checked.  Display file icon "on the photos' is unchecked (I tried checking, too, without change).  I also deleted the thumbnails using disk cleanup as suggested on another question, but which did not allow them.
    The result is that, if I want to open an image for editing or downloading, I have to use a third-party application (for example, Pentax Photo Browser) to preview images, and then return to the Explorer window to select the correct file by name. Don't try to difficulty of these things that are not broken.

    You might want to try it and I just did this procedure myself a moment ago and surprising, it worked!  First of all I must tell you that I have Windows Vista, but the information I got was for Windows 7 and it worked.

    First: You must create a NEW FOLDER and put it on your desktop.
    Second: Move or copy the contents of the original file in the NEW FOLDER on the desktop. I copied the content, just in case something went wrong.
    Third: After that is finished and all the contents are inside you.
    Fourth: On the desktop right click on the folder and click Properties at the bottom of the box.
    Fifth: Click Customize tab at the top and then the Middle click on DEFAULT settings for the folder.  Click on apply to, click OK and your done

    NOW! You can move the folder wherever you want by drag-and - drop the folder and when it's done and that's the best part, you should see the thumbnails of the folder on the EDGE of the folder that you just created.  It worked for me and I hope it works for you.
    I have 10 years of experience with my computer and have troubleshooted my friends for viruses and other computer problems successfully.  I'm advanced computer user.

    That this is done, it restores the folder its original settings.  Good luck! Rick

  • Whenever we start to use our computer, the screen goes black and the message 'Auto adjust is in Prgress'. Then, all of our screen is small and all the icons and pages are smaller than before.

    original title: Auto Adjust


    Whenever we start to use our computer, the screen goes black and the message 'Auto adjust is in Prgress'. Then, all of our screen is small and all the icons and pages are smaller than before.

    I tried restoring the system that works and that gets our screen back to normal but every day that this Auto setting is coming and we can't seem to stop it.

    Any help would be appreciated... Thank you

    Try this:

    Go to the Web site of the manufacturer of your laptop computer-graphics/computer card > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > look for the latest Vista drivers > download/install them.



    Change the screen resolution

    Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They appear also smaller, so more items adapted to the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items adapted to the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images may have serrated edges.

  • "wallpaper" and all the icons disapper every time I use the computer.

    the desktop "wallpaper" and all the icons - disappear immediately after the mouse click on anything and does not return... I turn on 'star' whenever I want to change a program.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.
