General Computer Support / [SOLVED] Systray customize link not working
« on: December 03, 2016, 07:38:06 AM »
I have a Windows 7 PC that will not allow you to customize the Systray icons. When you either right click on the task bar, select properties, then click on customize button on the new window, nothing happens when you do so. If you go to the Systray and click on the up arrow, then click on the blue link that says Customize... nothing happens also.

I have tried several fixes from the 7 forums but those are not working also. System restore does not work also. Can anyone offer any suggestions to get this function to work again?


I have a Windows 7 PC that has a 1 user and 1 admin account. There are no passwords on any of the two accounts. However when you click on any of the two user account icons you get the following error message: "The user name or password is incorrect". What makes this more weird is that you never get a box to enter a user name or password.

What I have tried the following so far without any success:
1. I have even removed/reset any and all passwords using a password removal utility to blank no passwords.
2. I have done a system re-store.
3. Windows start up repair.
4. Ran Kaspersky system restore ISO CD and it found no viruses.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.  :confused:

I just built a new Windows 7 64 bit PC with two hard drives. Drive 1 is 500GB, Drive 2 is 160GB. Windows installed without any issues but Drive 1 the C: drive only has Windows on it and no System Partition. Drive 2 has a 100MB partition with the System Partition and the rest of the drive is formatted and empty.  What I would like to do is move the System Partition to Drive 1 or Windows to Drive 2, so that both Windows and the System partition reside on one drive. When I try to clone Windows to the other drive it warns me that there is an existing partition that will get wiped out.

Any suggestions on what I can do without having to reinstall Windows again this time with only one drive installed on the PC?   :confused:

General Computer Support / vlc player will not run (SOLVED)
« on: January 29, 2014, 11:41:54 AM »
I just updated to vlc VideoLAN and it installs correctly. However when I try to run it I get the following error:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"

This is bizarre since I'm the PC admin, & I have full rights and permissions.  I ran the Windows Repair (All in One) v2.2.0
and checked every option to do with permissions, files, etc. Every other program that I have installed or updated since this
issue works fine except for this one. People at VideoLAN are not much help with this situation.

I'm running Windows XP SP3 with all the latest patches. Using Avast AV 2014, Private firewall v7 with all updates. Secunia is green
showing all programs are fully patched.  I even uninstalled, ran CCleaner rebooted, turned off Avast and firewall, reinstalled vlc player
with the same results. I'm really baffled by this.

Any help much appreciated.

what tweak shows a monitor icon in windows explorer?

I installed one of the tweaks included in the Advanced System Tweaker that installed a monitor icon in windows explorer that allows you to see the contents of my computer. Can anyone tell me what tweak placed that icon there?
