Same problem with chkdsk/f - only gives option to run on reboot. I already have the Control Panel "pinned to start" - big help. I will check the other things later and let you know. Thanks again

Unfortunately, the problem is still there. I thought I had cured it but it came back up on the next reboot. I am left with the choice of a System Restore or downloading windows install media (I had a look at this and it asks for a key - no key as I updated from windows 7 when the free upgrade was available). I have tried everything including a re-run of Tweaking All-In-One as administrator. I have searched Google/Windows forums and tried everything to no avail. As I am not prepared to do a Factory Default reset, I will have to live with the problem until I change my PC sometime in the near future. I am grateful for your help. Cheers

I've finally given up as nothing I try seems to help. I even ran (as administrator) the tweaking all-in-one repair tool again and the problem STILL persists. I may have to restore  the system. If I don't will this problem with the Windows Security Service Centre harm my system?  Thanks for all help

Many thanks for your prompt reply. After trying a number of fixes for the Windows Security Services non-function, including using msconfig to enable all services (failed), I decided to give up and do a System Restore from the restore point which I created in the Tweaking Programme. To my amazement, the restore point does not exist in system restore and trying to restore in the Tweaking programme just takes me into my System Restore with the same result. Finally, I did a System File Check (again in the Tweaking programme and it appears to have fixed the Windows Security Services problem (hopefully!). I can only assume that I didn't run the programme as administrator and this has caused the problems. I am extremely reluctant to run the programme again!

I am using Windows 10 Home and, as I am the sole user and administrator of my PC, I assumed that I ran the programme as administrator - I could be wrong! In addition the problem with the Windows Security Service Centre has re-occurred when I booted up this morning - I cannot switch it back on. I would appreciate any help  anyone can give with this particular problem. Thank you for your comment.

Used the Windows All-in-One Repair tool today. When i eventually got to the "Repair" section, the screen recommended re-booting to Safe Mode. I did this and, when the new screen was displayed, it asked me to enter my password. I entered my usual password and it was not recognised. I then entered every password I have ever used (I keep a VERY secure record of these!) and to my surprise not a single password was recognised. I had no choice but to restart in "normal mode" and continue the repair.  Everything worked in the end but I am curious to know where I went wrong.  Incidentally, when all was finished a message displayed to the effect that my Windows Security Service Centre was switched off.  I attempted to switch it on and it was not accepted. After jumping through a lot of hoops, I restarted the system and, lo and behold, the problem was fixed. An on-screen warning might help with these problems. This is a great programme - I really like it.

Managed to sort this one.  I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes which found a number of problems which it quarantined.  After restart, my drive re-appeared.  Not one solution offered by searching on Google  recommended running a malware software.  I have (paid for) AVG Anti-Virus (2014) and it didn't make a squeak!!  Thanks for help offered, Shane. Much appreciated.  Greetings from England.

General Computer Support / Missing device - CD/DVD
« on: March 28, 2014, 06:09:43 am »
Today my in-built CD/DVD player is "missing" from my PC.  When I go into Devioce Manager it shows message - "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)".  I have searched for solutions including 1) Restart PC 2) Uninstall device  and restart PC 3) Look for update for driver 4)Using regedit to fix HKEY LOCAL MACHINE etc etc.  Nothing has worked and I restarted my PC after each "fix".  When I insert a DVD the drive whirs etc so I am at a loss to know how to fix this.  Appreciate any help you can give.  Running Windows 7 Home Premium/System Mechanic 12.7/AVG 2014 Anti-virus etc etc.

Thank You

 :cheesy:  Many thanks!!!  Tried for two weeks to install new printer (Epson).  PC refused to install software from CD.  Epson support and Microsoft were no help at all.  Finally found your site and ran Windows Repair Tool  - everything worked perfectly and installed printer without problem.  Have sent a small donation to express my thanks.
