 :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: Guess who's HAPPY, for a change?  Thaaat's right!  Tony, from the Norton Forum made my Identity Safe CLOUD whole again.  I am freekin' elated!  That Forum is the ONLY thing that keeps their "Support" alive!  Oh man, I'm just 'buzzing' right now and I 've got to get some sleep befor this problem 'harshes' it.  DAMN, I feel good.  Good and tired.  Almost like I'm back at work again!   :smiley:  I' be back after I sleep for a day (at least).   :smiley:  - Art

Well guys I'm back.  Not w/ a vengeance, but with a real problem.  Mr. Machine has been acting flaky.  Blamed it on Norton, but now I'm not so sure.  After I lost ALL 250 logins when their so-called Identity Safe Cloud while changing passwords I have been up for 2 days.  But I think I may have a different, possibly related problem.  Their Forum has been a help, but I haven't had time to address that BS.  I'll complain about it l8r.  [big surprise, huh]

Ran all tests according to procedure.  This is what WR Pro has gleaned for me:
The master file table's (MFT) BITMAP attribute is incorrect.
The Volume Bitmap is incorrect.
Windows found problems with the file system.
Run CHKDSK with the /F (fix) option to correct these.

As you know, I'm lost in the 'brave new SW world'.  This really concerns me.  I know an MFT error is bad, very bad.  As much as I hated to (and shouldn't have), I relied upon Norton 360.  But before I blame this problem on them, I'm going to run my other/possibly better tools as soon as I post this.  So I'll be back soon, (I hope) after I throw 'the kitchen sink' at Mr. Machine.  I hope that you've had some laughs here in my absence.  Is there a new 'class clown' to take my place.  well I'll find out soon enough to check back.  I'll TRY not to do anything stupid ... just Scans w/o actions and report verdicts back.  L8R -  Art

 :smiley:  I want to wish everyone a Happy Holidays' as I am back up and running thanks to Windows Repair (All in One) for repairing my PC.  It was in such a mess, I had tried many things and other "Free" Repair Tools.  I remembered from years ago and discovered Windows Repair through a search.  I wish that I had tried it first.  The other "Free" programs just made things worse, but Windows Repair did the trick.  I was so thankful for getting my PC working properly, that for the first time (other than CCleaner), I had to upgrade to Windows Repair Pro to give thanks for what they did for me.  This Forum is also a great resource for getting expert advise.  These guys know what they are doing!  They don't just send you off after giving you a B.S. line to make you think that you are supported. 

Since then, I have gotten to know several people here that 'have your back' ... for real.  I appreciate that a lot.  So I had to stop by and give my thanks.  I want to wish everyone at (and their Forum) has a great year, and many more to come!  - Art   :smiley:

All I can say is that, the only thing better than Windows Repair is Windows Repair (Pro Version).  - Art

... and for a while, too.  - Art   :smiley:

Boggin says:

"If you had established yourself as a useful member then you may have been given a month's suspension for that, but added to that someone had checked out your batch file and found it to be possibly harmful and all this in your first post (which I didn't see) - you were declared persona no grata.

I haven't had the need to check out your batch file, but just how "rough" is it as Shane has a reputation to maintain and would not endorse anything that could cause harm - but as it is there on the forum for a Google Spider to pick up, someone could come along and give it a try to their detriment."

"persona no grata";  Impressive language, you must be VERY smart!  It's "persona NON grata".  I can become a pain in your ass, too.

1)  Are you trying to turn THIS Forum into yet another 'clique'?  Go away, or I am going to tell my Mommy that you touched me. 

2)  Nothing but innuendo.    ... and coming from YOU, a MODERATOR?!  I ask again, what's your point? 

3)  Your passive-aggressive effort to smear my reputation just put YOU on a list too.  lol

4)  I won't take any BS off of you either, Boggin.  IF you had taken the time to research your baseless accusations, you would either know better, or are just 'trolling'.  Have you found out why "Drew" (your buddy) was banned?  I couldn't find out much ... pity.

Your pal, Art.

I post on the Windows Secrets Lounge forum with VIP status and by pure chance your username cropped up in the VIP section and one of the Mods happened to mention that an "Article_86" member had been banned for posting what seems like the fix you have posted on here.

The reason for the ban was because the "fix" actually disabled Windows Update and was classed as malware.

Comment Please.
That was the excuse that was given, as you know.  But the REAL reason is that I went after THIS Jack-Ass.(BANNED FROM BC):

BTW, you can still find that exact post/upload in the Norton Forums.  Enjoy.  - Art

And your point in asking, Drew?

Hi Julian - 

I am just finishing up with some problems w/ Norton 360, plus a Serif installation.  Let me do that and and run WR Pro twice, to reproduce data.  Thanks for keeping an eye on me.  - Art

Nope, no good.  With that key combination, the context menu offers to "Run as different user".  Being Administrator, I'm reluctant to do that as it could bork my privileges.  Care to see my CBS file?  Is it safe to post in public?.  I've saved all the logs from my past 2 WR sessions.  The large folder log is pretty much a mystery to me ... 'old dogs & new tricks'.  At least I'm smart enough not tread where I'm not sure, generally.  lol  - Art

P.S. -
I forgot that for some reason, I can't invoke Run As Administrator from the Shortcut.  I have to go to the actual file location to do it.  Not a big deal, but maybe it is related to the CBS Duplicate Ownership problems.  - Art

I hope!  lol

That did it, Tim_Tweaking!  Firefox got me there without disabling any security programs.  SOLD!!  Thank you very much.  - Art  :smiley:

I have no allegiances, exept for "The Federation".  lol  I use Firefox normally, but since Norton's Identity safe does not work with newest Firefox I have been using IE.   :sad:  I'll try the site with Firefox in a little while.  Good idea!  Right now, I have a 'bone to pick' with Norton.  Thanks.  - Art
