The desktop icons to change the order after reboot

Original title: the icons on the desktop in the Land of window 8

Hello my friends. Before entering my question, I would like to thank all those who more graciously helped me with the many difficulties that I had with my old Dell XPS 8100 Studio, running Windows 7, Service Pack One, who went from the realms of the puffy clouds, halos, and * cherubs Flyin 'around pluckin' at the age of harps. Unfortunately he succumbed to Cyber Devils and digital demons that has infected. Even after the Pixel priest to perform an Electrosisim filled with the anointing of the Holy soldering, the pose of the figures on Ctrl-Alt-Delete, an attempt to restore to an earlier time, the computer was found dead of CPU. So at 2:35 on July-11-2013 with a tear to the eye and a hand shaking, I pulled the plug on my old Dell XPS Studio 8100 paper weight for 3 years and he passed quietly in the mist of the net and internet wholesale in the cloud. :)) So now I have a new ASUS computer and it runs Windows 8, and a few things are not as they were in Windows 7 like the arrangement of the icons on the desktop. Now, in Windows 7, I could resize, change the image and place the icons where I wanted to, and as long as I box unchecked her "snap to grid" in the settings under view they would remain locked in their assigned positions. Good, assuming that the parameters for the icons were the same as they were in Windows 7 in Windows 8, I went to the subject to carefully arrange my icons. When I had finished my task, I went in the view and the box unchecked that pesky 'snap to grid' and everything seemed fine until I had the need to restart the computer. After restart my office came on the screen and I couldn't believe my eyes, all of the icons that I had planned so carefully were in their original position they were before them, I changed? I went quickly into the display and don't you know that the "Snap to grid" box was checked. I tested this confusing situation several times, and any time the results were the same? Now, once more I seeks the advice and wisdom of you Wizards of Windows and Microsoft Magi digital defenders of the net in the hope that you might have a solution to my situation. Sincerely yours, Esq. Tiffany Amber Snow "Help me Obi Wan, you're my only hope"

  • My desktop icon to change their appearance?

    Greetings Windows wizards and warriors.

    A few months my desktop icons have changed their look by themselves? Little normal images are changed to little land and pages with the right corner leaning forward. When it started only affected the shortcuts of the site but since suddenly from affecting the icons of the programs as well. I tried to go into the properties for individual icons and changing images back to normal, but their real images are not available on the selection screen, their not located anywhere at all. Funny enough without notice the icon pictures return just as they disappeared. If any of you very inteligent people have an answer to why and how this happens, and especially how to prevent this behavior, please contact me, ' help me Obiwan, you're my only hope! "

  • ESXi 5.5 build 2456374 is unable to reconnect to the vcenter after reboot


    Have been hitting my head against it for the past few weeks. A host that has worked very well to a previous 5.5 build fails to reconnect to the vcenter after reboot once upgraded to build the 2456374. This also happens to the newly built guest. When a reconnection is started manually, it produces up to 80% (data of the host processing), then dies with a "general system error: internal error. I tried to remove the vpxa account, resetting the config network via the console, Cup NIC of the vswitch, removal of additional interfaces vkernel. The network via the console configuration reset allows me to reconfigure the net and tie vcenter and complete the host host configuration. However, as soon as I restart the host, is no longer, it reconnects to vcenter and I'm back where I started.

    Unfortunately, this is not a 100% event. If I rebuild a host enough times, one of the new buildings will finally works correctly.

    any ideas on how to solve this problem would be appreciated.



    Ok. so that was the easy part. Open a folder with vmware to identify the cause for this. After much digging, friction, pull hair, we found a clue in the hostd.log on the ESXi host.

    2015-04 - T 02, 04: 49:05.481Z [23381 B 70 error 'Hostsvc.NetworkProvider' user opID=HB-host-185064@917-1d029f4d-d2 = vpxuser] an error occurred during extraction of stack instance configuration: incompatible value of ccalgo for the Netstack instance: defaultTcpipStack.

    In my network performance test I did recently, I have significantly improved network iSCSI performance from the cubes NewReno network congestion control algorithm. For each of these hosts, as part of the installation procedure I now set the control algorithm of congestion on cube through the web interface. Finally, it is a little bug with that VMware believed fixed. Is not.

    To confirm doubling you encounter this problem, connect to the host (ssh or remote cli) and run the following command:

    list of esxcli ip network netstack

    You should get a message saying that there is an inconsistency in the netstack configuration.

    To fix, run the following command:

    esxcli network ip put netstack defaultTcpipStack cubic n - c

    the netstack from above list command should now display detailed information and will now be able to connect to vcenter.

    If I understand correctly, an article will be published on this in the near future.

  • How can I keep instances added in the order after the backup?

    OK, so I ran into a problem in my pdf form. I have the button instance to add to the work and with the help of advice here, I managed to add pages in the right order. However, once I've added a few pages and save my work, if I opened the file again pages added are no longer in the order that they are supposed to be in. I have included the pdf file so you can see what I mean. Pdf file starts like 4 pages in the Middle, two being the front and the rear called whats card stat. These two pages must be set to enable printing of the form cover and last page. But once the file has been saved after you added another set of stat cards, then it includes the pages as before, before, before, back, back, back. I can't let it stay that way, if it isn't going to be at all useful to as many people as possible. Please tell me what the problem is with him, and why it does this.

    You have an object called fullform you defined as a set of subform. This change to a subform and it should work fine.

  • SX80 do not pick up the IP after reboot

    After reboot SX80 codec on two of our meeting rooms, no IP address is captured by the codec. There isn't any question on the side of network infrastructure and all ports are tested.

    Tests: Factory reset codec twice, twice the touchscreen. DHCP connection is somehow after the reset.

    Second room after many factory resets, no IP address has been picked up. Decided to downgrade firmware to TC 7.2, problem persisted. Allocated static IP to the codec ( connection made, config pushed through, unit restarted for the objective test and not taken up static IP address. Proceed to another factory reset and added the static IP address and configured. Its form current Sx80 codecs on our site will not receive static or DHCP IP on restart of the codec. I understand that my question may be broad, but y at - it advice or suggestions, I can follow.

    PS I tried other codecs on those ports, all seem to be working like charm, it does seem that the codec SX80 being at fault.

  • Desktop icons Windows 7 converted at each reboot

    Windows 7 reorganizes my desktop icons after each reboot or after coming out of standby/hibernation.

    I am running Windows 7 Build 7100 on a laptop Dell Latitude D830 completely standard (which includes a nVidia Quadro NVS 140 M graphics controller). All drivers are clean windows; I have not replaced all the drivers with vendor-specific versions.

    I'm not using a KVM, I'm not using a projector or external monitor, and I never change the resolution of the screen. It couldn't be simpler: I start, move my desktop icons to where I like them, working for a few hours and closed. On the next reboot half of the desktop icons have been moved. There are no error messages or a warning during startup or shutdown, so no reason to explore should be unhappy.

    Clearly, this is a bug. But what is the workaround?

  • The remote desktop icon - cannot change the settings & only appeared yesterday - have I been compromised


    I had a quick glance around my system because I think it has been compromised. Today, I noticed something I never saw before a "Remote Desktop connection" icon in my documents - time created yesterday - at about 20:00 - 08/04 when I was not on the machine and certainly don't remember updated anything.
    I went into control panel / system/distance and unchecked boxes related to assistance remotely etc. Is there anyway that anyone can access my machine remotely? or how would I know if they have?  The sudden appearance of this icon and the calendar has caused me some alarm. I deleted it + at the present time, it is in the trash. I did it because it gives an error when I try to save changes to settings that do not allow access.
    Someone could give me some advice please on what this could be and how I can assure any remote access to my pc. (Windows XP / wired ethernet via Bt Home Hub connection)  Thank you.
