iMovie starts and disappears instantly

computer iMac (2011) software is up to date. Secure boot is no solution.

Pls someone help me

Try if the iMovie preferences will help the disconnection.

To delete the iMovie preferences leaving iMovie, runs, and then press and hold options and command key at the same time, at the launch of iMovie. Keep now pressed the buttons firmly until you see a command prompt to remove the preference. Confirm.

You have reset all the preferences that have been created from the preferences panel. iMovie will then begin with the Welcome screen.

When I had a similar problem, the only thing that helped was to create an iMovie library.  Probably a corrupted project in the iMovie current library prevented startup.   The problem persists, if you test different library in iMovie? You can create a library for testing.

    Thank you Joel S. Before I could put your advice into practice a friend recommended a friend who advised me to do a system restore, which he said he would be happy to do it for me. So look like an easy option, I agreed. It seems to have solved the problem (fingers crossed), but now it seems that I need to format the hard drive. If you have any tips on formatting hard drive I'm all ears. Thank you Owen

    Your router could be suspicious here, you have successfully updated its firmware as a possible solution? And I would like to
    Update your WiFi drivers on computers. How you are positioned in the router? Are there
    obstacles in the path?

    Actually try updating your driver and disabling the network logon.

    Control Panel - network - write down of the brand and the model of the Wifi - double click top - tab of the driver - write
    version - click the driver update (cannot do something that MS is far behind the pilots of certification). Then
    Right click on the Wifi device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - it will refresh the driver stack.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    Download - SAVE - go where you put it - right click – RUN AS ADMIN.

    You can download several at once however restart after the installation of each of them.

    After watching the system manufacturer, you can check the manufacturer of the device an even newer version. (The
    manufacturer of system become your backup policies).

    Repeat for network (NIC) card and is a good time to get the other updated drivers as Vista like
    updated drivers.

    I would also turn off auto update for the drivers. If the updates Windows suggests a just HIDE as they
    are almost always old, and you can search drivers manually as needed.

    Make sure you know the details of connection to your wireless router - SSID and password.

    You lose connection when you do and have to redo your logon.

    Control Panel - Network & Sharing Center - right, click Customize - page set of network locations.
    lower left click on merge or delete network locations - REMOVE all instances of your network (and the
    others you don't use anymore) - REBOOT. Start - Connect To log on to the network.

  • All program files and shortcuts from the "Start" menu disappeared

    I use Windows Vista Home Premium (SP2) (64-bit).  Two days back, I've updated my windows.  After restarting the PC, all program files and shortcuts in Start menu disappeared.  The shortcuts that I myself had added manually do not work.

    Have you tried to do the restore of the system in SafeMode as stated in my answer 1 to you?

    If it doesn't/does not work:

    If you do not want to repost in the Windows Update Forum (they are the specialists it for the best advice regarding your problem), make this disc Bootable startup repair and use it to do a system restore or uninstall the updates by using the method 2nd in my 1st reply:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

  • Windows 7 on a computer hp laptop, start menu never ceases to appear and disappear if often I can't type on the command line.

    Windows 7 on a computer hp laptop, start menu never ceases to appear and disappear if often I can't type on the command line. I can open Google Chrome and click here to read the games. If I need to type anything it either in the menu popping up any program does not allow me to do. I have it in safe mode to try to run a full scan check but not able to do. Any suggestions?

    Help, please

    You have another keyboard, say a connected USB, try? If this occurs only when you try to type, I was wondering if the keyboard is faulty and its operation to sort of the windows key?

    If this is likely, you can try if you click on the toggle bits.

    If not that, perhaps of possible malware? Can you go as far as to update your antivirus software and then run a full scan to see if it finds problems? When you say "able to do" whats happening?

  • HP Pavilion desktop computer: upgrade to Windows 10 - Start Menu disappeared

    I updated July 29 to 10 Windows using the Windows Media authoring tool.  I was very happy with the new system, everything was working fine until 2 days ago the Start Menu disappeared.  I looked for solutions, as it seems a common phenomenon and Microsoft are aware and working on a fix (this problem occurred with a previous version).  The most popular and apparently successful solution is:

    Open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator) the Task Manager (as a new task) and enter:

    Get-AppxPackage | % {Add-AppxPackage - DisableDevelopmentMode-register "$($_.)} {"InstallLocation) \AppxManifest.xml"}

    This has not worked for me.  After much trial and error I havefound change affected 'Standard' to 'Administrator' account and restart work.  Long term, however.  Someone at - there a better solution?

    Thank you. Unfortunately, I was one of those for whom this solution did not work.  The problem turned in my case to be caused by AdAware 9.0 that was included in the upgrade.  He was using a lot of memory and seemed to be blocking updates.  He was not enrolled in a program control panel, so I was unable to uninstall it.  I tried to replace it with the latest AdAware (currently 11.0) to save the program and then can be removed but was not able to uninstall version 9.0 or (AdAware 11.0 seems to cause problems with Windows 10).  I finally managed using Revo Uninstaller and find the program that even this program has no seeAdAware 9.0 installed programs.  After a complete withdrawal of all remaining files and a few reboots and allowing Windows Update to automatically install updates a backlog of orders, the Start Menu is back.  Problem solved.
