Feedback & Suggestions / Remote Desktop IP Monitor Blocker
« on: October 06, 2016, 12:16:53 AM »
Shane I've had this program for some time.  As far as I know it is working, and I've never seen an IP address pop up, which I guess is a very good thing.  For the 2nd time lately, the program closed, and I didn't do it, or know when it was closed.  I don't know if it is a bug, or what.  I am running Win10 with all updates done.  No av or malware that I'm aware of, and did scans today, it showed nothing.  Any ideas on this, or have you heard this happening at all?

Tweaking.com Support & Help / v 1.9.0 update question (SOLVED)
« on: June 14, 2014, 11:33:31 AM »
I updated last night to the newer version.  I have had excellent luck with this program.  Did you add a guest to the backup in the newer version?  Before it backed up 14 files.  Now it is 16.  I don't use Guest, and now it is backing up guest data. 
C:\Users\Guest\ntuser.dat  (shows size 2mb)
C:\Users\Guest\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Userclass.dat (shows size 1.2 mb)

The reason I ask is I am having strange download speeds the past 3 days.  I am trying to narrow down the problem.  I have used Eset Nod 32, Malwarebytes, and the Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit.  All found nothing.  My ISP tech thinks I have a virus.  So, I am looking for anything strange, or out of the norm.  If you didn't add GUEST in this update, that might be something for me to consider.  I did go to safe mode to do a speed test.  In safe mode it is average speed.  If a guest has been signing on, I need to know about it.  Thank you.

Tweaking.com Support & Help / Used Windows Repair now have issue
« on: January 23, 2014, 08:31:37 PM »
I just used the Windows Repair for the first time.  I had used it because I had corrupted files initially. I was having trouble with booting from anti virus rescue disks.  I also had trouble with backups.  I did a scan with sfc /scannow and it did show it fixed some corrupted files, but some it could not.  So I decided to try the Windows Repair program.  When I first restarted after it was over, the action center had messages.  It said Windows Defender was off.  If you click turn on, it takes you to a System 32 file, with folders.  I have an anti-virus program, and it is running.  (Eset Nod32)  I also have Malwarebytes for a back up program.  This issue of Windows Defender never came up before.  I thought it was off, unless you didn't have an av program running.  If you look at the action center flag, now it shows an X for a problem, which before it has always been white, with no warnings you could see, unless you ran over it with your mouse.  I don't know yet how everything else is working.  I plan to do another sfc /scannow and see what comes up.  Any help would be appreciated. 

I also wrote down the items Windows Repair had checked, before it started to repair them.  I also saved the log, before I rebooted.  I will attach that.

I ran the SFC /scannow  It shows I still have corrupted files, which really didn't surprise me.  But the Tweaking Registry Registry Backup did not start on it's own now.  It comes up, but doesn't scan.  I have to hit the Backup Now button on lower left.  (the gray one)  The Action Center says I have no antivirus installed.  My Dell says the same thing too.  ESET Nod32 is scanning as I type this.  So something isn't right.

Update 1-24-14 I ran a chkdsk /scan, then a chkdsk /spotfix, then rebooted, and the spotfix ran.  It was working on repairing errors before windows booted.  It finished, then booted.  I ran sfc /scannow again.  Still showing corrupted files.  I may have to repair windows with the manufacturer disk I burned.  If that copy isn't corrupted, I might be alright.  This copy was made after I updated at the store from Win8 to Win8.1   I highly suggested making an ISO file and use that, instead of updating at the store.  Windows forced me into the 8.1 update, by graying out everything one day, BUT THE STORE UPDATE.  I hope they have changed that policy by now. I don't know how to do a repair with windows dvd, but I am going to try to find out what I can on it.

Tweaking.com Support & Help / Registry Back Up v1.5.1
« on: January 14, 2013, 05:22:51 PM »
I just downloaded and ran this program.  The first time it backed up fine.  Then I got a message from the newest version of Comodo.  It said vss.bat was suspicious, and not known, and it was putting it in the sandbox.  I preferred the easier older version, as I rarely had alerts, and I did not use sandbox.  I believe this vss.bat is connected to the Registry Back Up..is this correct or no?  This verification is killing me.  I can't read it right, and when I push click to hear, I don't hear a thing.  I decided to download the sound, but then Win8 did not play it, it didn't know what to open the file with, and sent me to the store, where it did not seem like any of those aps ran sound.
