General Computer Support / convert .esd to .wim
« on: July 01, 2019, 05:41:41 am »
I am an average user so find the links to doing the subject difficult. I have watched videos also but they are not easy.
I do have a flash drive I downloaded from the MCT and used to install Windows 10 Pro.
I can only see the files within the MCT when I use the flash drive I made with .esd.
Maybe you could help me do this in steps.
is the first thing I do, install a blank flash drive and save the MCT to it?
Thank you

I run Windows 10 Pro 64 byte.
I like to try new programs and investigate.
I am not proficient enough to run sandboxie or rollbackrx.

I think your program is something I could handle.
Instead of using the lengthy system restore, if I tried a program and did not like it, could I take a snapshot before, then restore to it after if I removed the app I did not like. Will registry restore bring my PC back to where it was or is something still left where I investigated or tried and removed?
I think in terms of Venn diagrams, system restore would be larger than the reg backup. Am I correct so is this the tool I should use for the purposes stated?
Thank you

I have figured out what Comcast never told me and secured the Gateway.
Thank you for the help.

Am I better off with a gateway or a modem with my router? I was dropping off but it may have been my router.
Comcast gave me an Arris gateway and thank goodness I remembered about 'admin' and "password".
After browsing I found the way to enter was http://HTTP://
When entered, it said I have weak security. I clicked upon moderate and it said it does not take HTTP commands.
I also clicked upon the wizard but it would not respond.
Comcast does not know its own product so we are left to figure it out.
Are there any suggestions you can give me to figure this out so I have decent security and a new password?
Thank you

Hi again
I just wanted you to know the issue was resolved but the cause is unknown as a few things were done. The tech replaced the Ethernet plug from the wall and commented that it was shoddy. He replaced the modem with a gateway so I have no need of my router, I guess.
My router light still acted funny so a couple of things could have been wrong. All works well.
Would you add a router to the gateway which is already a combo of modem and router(WPA2, TKIP, AES ?
Thank you for your help?

Yes, trouble shooting by elimination is the way.
The evasion in this issue is the erratic behavior of the symptom. You never know when it drops off as we are not watching the pc all the time nor are we on the phone all the time.
We have a tech coming Th. with instructions to bring a new modem and the ability to install the Ethernet cable from the wall.
I hope I can report back with good news.

Will do,  but I noticed the plug into the modem when wiggled fixes the modem lights when they are going awry. It seems, at least,  the modem wire is faulty if this is occurring.
Would you agree?

Desktop and laptop are similar and run Win 8.
Router is a Belkin and firmware is updated. Router works well in MD and MA for a week in each place.
Comcast ISP has trouble shot the modem and signal strength yet I lose internet and varying times a day.
I have changed channels.
I have exhausted resources over the phone with my ISP and the tech has been here to sate the modem is ok.
We have tried everything to no avail.
Can it be that I am relegated to having an isp where I continue to lose internet?
Verizon FIOS is available and although we could do it, it would be a disruption to my wife's business,i.e., business cards and email contacts.
Do you have any tricks up your sleeve, Shawn?
Thank you

I am uncertain as to when to use system restore or Tweak's registry backup, first.

If you create a point on a day with each, then download a bad program, get a corrupted download or need to 'go back", which should you try first?

Also, if you use one, will it remove or disable the other?

Thank you

Will do. I will just reduce the number of points to about 3%. I will set your as I always do with the task scheduler.

I tried Ccleaner and it read all the points except two that are way back in Dec 12 and Jan 13.
I tried the program that removes them to no avail.

If I ran clean up system files and chose to remove all the points except the last, would it take care of those two stubborn useless but dangerous points. Either that or leave as is.

I was mentioning your registry program in a Windows eight forum and was not sure what to tell them about removing individual points.
Can this be done with your program without hurting the other points?

And Rick, thank you for your help.

I confused my terms.
Windows has a system restore.

You have registry backup.

You advocate using your registry backup but I do not know if I should turn off the Windows system restore to use yours.

Recently my wife's pc had issues and Windows system restore failed.

Is your restore system different to the point where this will not happen?

Unless I hear from you otherwise, I will assume that your registry backup will be more effective than system restore as it handles it differently.
Using your system will allow me to restore the registry when system restore cannot.

I had posted a second time because I wanted to know if I should disable system restore but I guess the answer is yes.

Would you recommend shutting system restore down when we install your registry backup to save space  and avoid conflicts?
Thank you

Hi Shawn
The last updates caused issues that disabled system restore from functioning. It gave a coe I misplaced but had to do with 2 backups trying to work -I think.

If I used your registry backup instead, would I be able to restore my registry if Window files get corrupted?
In other words should I use theirs yours or both regarding restoring the registry   when files get corrupted and the overall ability to restore the registry is concerned??
Thank you

I echo cnnashman's comments.
I have used Shane's products on regular occasions and find them to have integrity - they say what they do and do what they say.
It is of course wise to question something you find suspicious but after looking over all the evidence and knowing the value of the products, it is also, wise and courteous to be grateful for the person who is creating such fine quality work.
My machines work much better since I have had the opportunity to use these programs.

Hi Shane
I guess my lack of skill has caused me to have an inordinate amount of issues.
At present I uninstalled the programs from the pcs.
I hope the invitation to work together to get them up an running still stands until I can get things in order?

I had the portable one installed in the laptop as you suggested because there was no uninstaller. I installed the regular program over it now has an uninstaller, thank you for that.

The desktop is not working as it should as you can see by the log files I submitted.. Can I install the registry backup program over it and see if that would help. This way I won't lose my backups or, will it cause issues?.

I could have mistakenly downloaded the portable one to the laptop as there is no uninstaller and will keep  in mind I just have to remove the folders.
It is odd that the laptop which has no uninstaller is running fine and the desktop is the one  I am sending the logs in that is not running properly. I know there is no correlation.
I could keep the fallback method but usually remove the failed backup and perform a manual one which always works.
