Title: Captcha and resetting boot up back to normal mode after using W.R.
Post by: Chillyb on August 01, 2015, 07:02:03 PM
I don't know about any other of your members, but I'm finding it a bit difficult to always get the Captcha letters the way it's currently displayed. I'm all for anti-spammers, and I think I saw the option to hear it. But would it be difficult to change the method you guy's currently use to one of the other variations? The one I attached I've never seen before. But one of my favorites is the kind that shows a image with text or numbers on it. It's very easy on the eyes. (and no, I'm not THAT old yet)   :tongue:

Also, and I don't want to sound dumb here, but when I recently used the"Boot to safe mode" button in the app ,and ran the repairs, my system kept booting into safe mode. Which is easily fixed via msconfig obviously. *I think windows 10's slight different version threw me off a bit* But it would be nice to have a button or check box that the user can use to automatically switch back to normal mode once done using the tool.

Just my 2 cents.

You got stuck? Dang i thought it would be almost impossible can you describe what happened when you got stuck? Did it go all the way to the login screen? Or did you have it do a chkdsk before safe mode because the program tells Windows after it logs in to remove the safe boot but that's after Windows logs in to the user.  if you get loop back try running the reboot to safe mode button again while in safe mode let it restart it will put you in safe mode but after you login to your user fully go ahead and reboot and it should kick you out of safe mode. but i'm curious and really want to know the steps so Shane can fix that.

Well, I don't know if it's necessarily a problem with the app.  Yes, I ran the first few tabs in normal mode, then at the chkdsk tab, I did the first button, it told me to do the next button, then it rebooted into safe mode. But what was weird, and again, this may be a Win10 bug, the icons for the sound & network at the login screen were X'd out, as if no network, but once logged in, I had access fine.  Now, after I started the final tab for the repairs, I had to run to the store.  I was back within 20-30 min's tops, and the screen had timed out, but moving the mouse brought me right back to the repair results, which showed it fixed some issues.  So I ran it a 2nd time and no problems were found.  Then I just used the start button to reboot, and it went back to safe mode.  So then I double checked the 2nd tab, forget what that one's for, Parsing? That came back ok, I checked all the settings/options and tabs, looked around the website for anything I might have missed, didn't see anything there or anything in the program to disable safe mode, so I used msconfig and choose the save permanently box, and then it booted normally.   And even thought msconfig isn't that big of a change from the previous versions of windows, I kept choosing "boot normally" on the first tab, it kept hanging,, then ok'd and restarted and it kept booting to safe mode.  (Then i realized I had to use the startup tab to un-check selective boot, saw the save perm. box ,and that's when it started normally.

So, I'm still a little concerned I had some prior windows issues before I upgraded to 10, even though I did everything to prepare for the update, ie: DSIM, SFC, Defragged, and ChkDsk.  Cause now, it seems explorer.exe is crashing and reloading occasionally while opening/closing multiple programs.  No BSOD's or anything like that.  Just my desktop/taskbar icons reloading.    So I've been researching windows 10 issues since then and just saw that MS now not only is offering the Win10 iso to download and burn, but also a USB method.  So I downloaded that and am going to do a clean install in the next few days.   I'm kinda burning out on all this updating my app's that have them, and checking and re-checking drivers and such since Wednesday/Thursday.   

Anyway, I hope that all makes sense, and guess I just forgot that when I used Shane's baby on 8.1, it booted normally after using it.   Thanks again for responding Julian, hope to see you around soon. I'm open to any advice/suggestions you guy's might have for me to try anything different before I do the clean install.   I really am glad I found this tool, because Shane's done more for pesky Windows issues than MS themselves as far as I'm concerned.   Now he just needs to make a Uber version of Windows Repair that incorporates all the windows updates and boot tools like UBD or Hiram's or whatever it's called, so that a complete reformat and reinstall is streamlined and get's bought out by MS for several million dollars and makes the whole Windows troubleshooting, repairing and restoring easier than it's ever been

*Cause he's damn close now*    heh heh.    Now I just want to go pro and get all it has to offer.
