Cannot Change Default Search In Ie8

Every time i open ie8 i get this message "a program on your computer has corrupted your search provider, live search. Internet exployer will now open the search settings where you can change this setting or install more search providers. " I click o. K. And go to manage addons.live search is already enabled. Regardless of what changes i make and close the window, its pops up again ever time i log in and start a search. Otherwise all works well. I have gone to tools, internet options, and tried changing the default, added bing and still it will not change the default and the message keeps coming up. It is very annoying.

Icons Issue When Accidentally Change Default Program

I accidentally changed the default program used to open .zip files under one of my user accounts (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Based on another user account, i figured out that it should be set to windows explorer. Changing it back restored the functionality - so zip files are once again opening correctly. But the .zip files now appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the zip icon?

Can't Change Default Program For Image Files

I have just upgraded from the coreldraw x4 suite of graphics/image processing applications to version x5 on my windows 7 ultimate machine. The new version runs fine, so i uninstalled the x4 version. I then wanted to make photopaint the default program for editing a range of image file formats (i use picassa as my album and right clicking to select the program to edit the image is really great).

For some reason, however, photopaint (x5) doesn't appear in the list. When i 'browse' for it i can find the photopaint .exe file. However, after i select it and click 'open' (and the 'browse window closes) there is no change to the default program. The only correct file:program association i can see is for the native corel image format (. Cpt). What gives?

How To Change Default Audio Output?

I have an evga 790i ftw motherboard and am using the optical connection on the back for sound. It is connected to my stereo receiver. As of right now, i go to sounds, then select digital audio as my output, and go to properties. Under "supported formats" i can select dts or dolby digital, and when i press test, everything checks out. Afterwards, i go to "advanced" and the default format will only let me select a 2 channel, and that is all that plays out of my stereo. How do i go about changing my output to that of 5. 1 or 7. 1?

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Accidentally Set Same Default Program

I was trying to open dell webcam central because it wasn't working. I right click and picked open with, then pick default opener. I did not notice that the box that says something along the lines of "make default for all programs" was checked. Now any time i try to open any program it opens the webcam. I have tried doing system restore, but received an error message concerning a file problem. It said to try turning off my antivirus, which i did and it still didn't work. I've tried to go back and select the default program for each program, but it doesn't change anything.

Default Program / Icon Open Up Issue

My sister recently received an hp notebook as a gift with windows 7 installed on it out of the box. For the first few weeks it was running fine and then sometime last week while uploading pictures from her digital camera on the default program, it did something to where all the icons on the desktop and the start menu are the microsoft office picture manager icon. Whenever you click any icon, say for google chrome, or itunes, it will open up picture manager. The only icons ive been able to get anywhere with have been the system tools and i am not really sure what to uninstall to make the default program go away.

Win 7 64-bit App Installations Always Default To Program Files (x86)

I've just recently installed windows 7 64-bit. When i try installing 64-bit applications such as firefox namoroka or google picasa 64-bit the default is always to install in "program files (x86)". The default should be "program files" for 64-bit apps. Shouldn't windows detect that it's a 64-bit application and default the installation to "program files"?

Do You Want This Program To Change Settings On Your Computer

Do you want this program to change settings on your computer? Yes. You must be an administrator to run this program for the first time. This is my problem when i try to run a game.

I am the administrator on my computer. Geek squad said there is something wrong with the game program. So i exchanged it and it still wont work.

Wmi Provider Host Performance Issue

When i went to the performance information and tools applet from the control panel, under the "performance issues" section, there was a notice that there was a program causing my (relatively new) system to start slowly. Clicking on it, the message on the dialog box reads "these startup programs are causing windows to start slowly. Name: wmi provider host, filename: wmiprvse.exe, etc. " And it also says that the time taken is 23. 3 seconds-obviously a significant cut.

My problem is, i'm not familiar with what the wmi provider host is, so i'm not sure that i want to remove it from startup. Googling it, i can find lots of information concerning it, but very little actually explaining what it is, or if there's any harm in removing it from startup.

Download Programs To Default Folder "program Files" 32-bit Or 64-bit

I have been confused if programs automatically download to the optimum "program files" for 32-bit or 64-bit or do i have to select which if the two program files i want it in? It seems everything has been going into the x86 file. I don't want to just move them all over to the 64-bit file if they really belong in the x86 file, but i am sure my new photoshop programs belong in the program files file yet they seen to have downloaded into the program files (x86) instead. Also, how am i to know which programs are better suited for either folder?

Update: i tried copying the photoshop file and moving it to the 64-bit folder but it won't let me do so, saying a file is in use somewhere. I do not have any files from this open; i even restarted the computer to completely close anything that might be open and i get the same message. Is this maybe because it does not belong in the program files folder for 64-bit programs? Any other hints on how i can move this program, along with adobe premiere elements (for making videos) that gives me the same message? I have been told these programs would work better running as 64-bit programs so that is why i want to move them.
