General Computer Support / SFC not working
« on: April 10, 2013, 04:10:20 pm »
Hi Shane

I downloaded the latest Version 1.9.13 AIO Repair.

On the Vista machine the SFC will not work (use to), it asked to press any key to continue as sdoon as the Command box appears, i press any key and the Box disappears.

With the 1.9.13 AIO on the XP machine it goes staight through using all ther repairs, including the RESET FILE PERMISSIONS, just to remind you it was thought it was going around in a loop. Have tried it twice now to make sure and it went staright through, actually quicker 80 minutes instead of 200 minutes.
Maybe with the extra room on the C Drive has made a difference?

Thanks in advance

Hi Shane

Ran the latest 1.9.12 and i had to skip (un tick) the RESET REGISTRY PERMISSIONS although 01/03 went through ok, but 02/03 and 03/03 didn't. It was taking for ever.

Interesting that version 1.9.10 had little problem with this.

Also the Vista Windows Updates seem to be working with no pending.

Thanks again

General Computer Support / Help for Shane and a thank you
« on: January 18, 2013, 06:49:58 pm »
Hi thought i would post this thread for Shane.

Mainly my thoughts are if there is anything we can send, some sort of reports of some sort that would make it easier for Shane (time etc).

Shane is there anything we can send in general that would give you more specfic info e.g. reports from a program.

Registry Cleaners seem to give info errors before the user proceeds with the Clean, would this help?

Thanks alot for your help and fast reponses Shane, really appreciated.

Hi Shane with the new version 1.9.5 (and the last 1.9.4) seems to either go to sleep or hibernation, doesn't wake up with a move of thew mouse or pressing any key, i start it again with the power button.

Freezes early, when i wake it up it seems to have frozen.

Hi i have rebooted and first

1. explorer notice saying to terminate (and something else) i terminated

2. Then no icons, absolutely nothing just the wallpaper with flower

3. Rebooted then says This computer is locked only or an administrator can unlock

Still can't get back the desktop icons, controls, or anything, just the wallpaper with flower

Please help

General Computer Support / All In One Repair & Tweaks
« on: December 12, 2012, 01:26:06 pm »
Hi this is my first post.

I would to start to say thanks to the creator of these programs. I have some questions.

I have two laptops one is XP and the other is Vista.

With the XP machine the difference these programs made was alot more sigificant than the Vista.

Straight after i run the All in One Program the XP machine runs really well (even on dial up internet) but after approximately one week it starts to slow down alot, so i run the program again (same again runs really well) then slows down alot, and so on, and so on.

Is there anything i can do?

I run programs Advast, Malwarebytes on both machines, and scan before i run the programs.

I haven't run the SFC on the XP machine. Which disc and part of the disc would i use?

With the Vista machine the program made hardly any difference, very,very slow. It never use to be.

Thank you very much, youyr help is appreciated.
