Tweaking.com Support & Help / Re: Problem with shopping cart

Good for you.
...especially for my workplace "envirotech": for myself I wouldn't be so eager to use that tool too often, the lesser the better ;).

I've decided to buy a license for the sole reason that it's the only "reputable" repair-tweaking software that was able to fix my Defender Firewall, which would not start whatever I could do! After trying to repair it manually, unsuccessfully following all that's published on the Web in this regard (registry tweaks etc. etc.), no other tool could do the job, not even those bragging about being able to repair a faulty Defender Firewall. I was very surprised (and happy) that your tool was successful. So I then tried different others tweaks and found it to be a nice tool to have. More over, as opposed to some other tools, a complete automatic tweak session - which is not advised - did not throw my PC in a ditch: some manual repair was mandatory, especially deleting /repairing some  links related to  junctions as per reports (along uselessly tightened file security on my user data drive), but overall it did a good job (as specified by Tweaking.com, it's better to use the tool for targeted repairs, but I wanted to see how it behaved as a whole for coherence). Hence, I've decided to buy a license, good job guys. And thanks again for the head up.

BTW - You should have been able to do what I suggested straight away without the need for a shower and overnight sleep :lol
Yes, I just bought a Tech license for Pro  :artist:

I've attached my log from when I ran WR on this machine and you will see I got similar results.

I see a lot of Access denied items scrolling down the screen but they are too fast to read.

In Safe Mode with Networking, Win 8.1 and Win 10 disable wireless but you can manually reconnect by clicking on your wifi icon then on your SSID and select Connect.

Left click away and that will close that pane where you see a full wifi icon.

Losing wifi could because of interference from other local users and changing the channel in the router can resolve that.

Details for logging into the router should be on its rear.

This program will show which channel you are using and using the Link score will help you find the best channel.

https://www.techspot.com/downloads/5936-inssider.html

When the right pane populates, click on NETWORKS and it will advise you which channel to change to for best results.

Most routers channel settings are set to Automatic so it could drop you onto any channel.

I assume you are using Win 10 so open either a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and enter these cmds and then run WR again to see if you get the same type of logs.

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Enter exit to close the cmd window.

You can manually remove temp files prior to running WR and that is to go Start - type %temp% and press enter.

If that is highly populated then press CTRL and a together to highlight then CTRL and d together to delete.

You will need to empty the Recycle Bin afterwards.

BTW - why do you need to remove the laptop battery to boot into Safe Mode with Networking, or did I misunderstand you ?

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it.
I would like to ask for more detailed comment about the repairs that failed and some other items that concern me from the log.
Before I start, I apologise for my ignorance; my comments are based on my feeling that my router/network (home user only, all home machines standalones, no syncing) and trying for several years to correct my assumptions; and perhaps my illogical logic, whilst using Tweaking pro and looking at the logs. THIS is not a criticism of the product, I think it is particularly good, but I am concerned, that some how on my machines, its ability is being degraded. I would be very pleased for your comments, even if they say, ?your being an idiot!?
Let me start about when I boot to safe mode from the application. With this newish laptop, I cannot remove the battery, so that presumably is an issue; however, on both my desktop and laptop, I lose internet connection whilst I am using Wi-Fi. So especially on this machine the laptop (the ones these logs are for), the repairs are done in safe mode but without internet connection. (If I connect to ethernet I do not lose)
Moving on to the logs, as I read the logs there are quite a few repairs that cannot/have not been able to run
1Remove temp files
There are files hear that tweaking could not remove, not system files (?), why would that be?
2 Repair Icons
This is a question for knowledge please, is there a setting where the system can be set to stop producing these icon/thumb caches
3 Repair windows installer
Access denied reason 5, a recurring problem. As mentioned, this laptop had a new SSD last week, no backup files brought on to the disc (all on one drive). I am the only/user administrator. Code 5 as I understand it is an access denied because of lack of authority/status; how is that possible if I am the only user/administrator? I am assuming that this repair did not work (?)
4 Repair Network
Access 5 denial again, so this repair has not taken place (?)
5 Repair print spooler
I regularly lose my printer for no apparent reason, I see two files deleted, just asking is there any significance with these two files, I appreciate this may be a stupid question.
6 Volume shadow copy repair
Service not being able to be started.  Is there any reason? I must admit to not understanding this and particularly storage volumes in device manager, I have volumes but I have a dozen hidden volumes with the message ?currently this volume is not connected to the computer (code45)?
This repair I assume cannot work if the volume shadow copy cannot be started?
7 Repair Windows Updates
Change serviceconfig failed code 5 access denied, repair failed (?)
8 Repair WMI
System Error 5 failed
Just some further information, I have malwarebytes premium (not registered in windows) and malwarebytes VPN on my machines and use windows defender and firewall

I?ve just run the full suite of repairs on Tweaking and in restore default permissions there is an error log and it is copied below
ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\CurrentLanguage> failed with: The handle is invalid.
ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009> failed with: The handle is invalid.
ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\CurrentLanguage> failed with: The handle is invalid.
ERROR: Writing SD to <machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009> failed with: The handle is invalid.
Does this have anything to do with Access 5 denial?

As I say I want tweaking to work, this is all written in a positive vien, to help me and tweaking where appropriate
Many Thanks
Eyeball

When I ran the Pro version on my Win 10 laptop, I got an error in that section but it was for source files not found.

I do initially get an access denied in the Network repair as you do but it also goes on to successful repair.

I also get an access denied in the Windows Updates section.

I'm not sure if this is a genuine query as I've identified you as a spammer.

Looking at the log it would appear (in my ignorance) that many of the repairs failed because of access denied code 5. If this is the case how doI stop this happening.
This is a standalone laptop. I am the only user/administrator. This is a dell vostro laptop. Last week they replaced my SSD drive and the disc was clean, no back up used (everything in the cloud).
Again this maybe my ignorance but I notice my ID on this machine , finishes with 1002. When I've had new machines in the past, it has I beleive always ended 1001, specific to the machine, IF that is the case where/who is '1001'. There is no other user on the machine?
I attach the last log, would you be kind enough to have a look please and advise if there is some serious underlying flawin the system and if so how it can be reolved
Thank you

General Computer Support / Show lingering java error
« Last post by emerrryjones on July 20, 2021, 09:03:43 PM »
Hi everyone,

I restarted my computer because my app (discord) kept showing a long java error, so I hit restart delete all my apps but keep my files. This pop up shows every time I try to load in and it won’t go past it, it says “install windows (X) The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation can not proceed.

To install Windows, click “OK” to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.” And when I click okay it just loads me back into this screen.

Thanks for help!!

General Computer Support / Re: The coordinate regisrty backup ?.

The default setting for Volume Shadow Copy is Manual but not Started.

As yours is showing as Started then the registry backup program could be using it or Windows could be creating a restore point.

No conflict.

How have you set the schedule for the back up to make them ?

I just occasionally create system images onto external media.
