Add-ons Do Not Work


I tried to go on youtube, but it said i needed to  "get the latest flash player. " To see a video. I clicked the link and downloaded it, and the flash player still didnt work. I started looking at the faq and it said to go to tools and then manage add-ons, and then to enable what i needed to but that didnt work either because the active x was not disabled. Then i went to the internet options and changed all activex settings to enable, and then restarted my computer, but i still cant watch videos or play games that require active x

I have vista, and internet explorer 8

Cannot Get Add-ons Re-enabled

I turned on my explorer yesterday and i had a message that it was running in no-add on mode. I didn't turn it to this it just happened, i didn't think nothing of this cause it didn't effect what i was doing that day. But today i noticed that one of my toolbars is missing and none of my flash works. When i went to download the newest adobe up update nothing happened. I went through the manage add ons and every thing is enabled in the first place, and i went through internet options and enabled things there to. But nothing works, and all my explorer icons still referrer to it as in no add-on mode.

Ie8 Add-ons Not Showing

I've downloaded a couple add-on's for ie8 (like, flashcat). Supposedly, any downloaded add-on should display in one of the bars above the web page, but this does not happen. In fact, after downloading the add-on and re-opening ie nothing is displayed anywhere.

I looked in help; and, it said i should go: menu > tools > tool bar in the browser. . . Except, that there is nothing under the tools tab in my ie8 that says "tool bar. "  Nada.

I've looked in "manage add-on's" and verified that the add-on is indeed listed there. Yet, it will not display in whatever bar that's supposed to be in the browser. I checked the fora and could find no similar issue.could somebody, please, help me with this?

Ie7 - Cannot Manage Add-ons

I have a problem concerning ie 7 add-ons. I can't open the tab that customize the ie add-ons, neither through ie -> tools, or control panel -> internet options -> programs. I just doesn't open up when i click it (no error message, nothing).

My internet browsing works fine, with all add-ons activated, the problem is just i can't see the tab to see what's installed and change their status. I'm on a win xp sp3, mcafee av since a year ago (previously norton av). I don't know exactly when the problem started, but when i installed ie 7 i remember clearly it was ok. I remember my laptop became infected with a pen-drive virus, which was solved time ago.could that have affected this feature?

Add Printer Does Not Work

I recently tried to install a new printer on a laptop running windows 7 ultimate. After attempting this, i can no longer add a new printer nor print to my existing printers. If i try to add a new printer, a message appears that states: unable to install printer. The print processor does not exist. If i try to print to an existing printer, the computer claims that the printer does not exist. Is there any good way to "reset" the windows printing subsystem? 

I'm really at my wits end with this issue and do not want to be forced to reinstall windows to correct this issue. I have checked the windows spooler service and it is running and does not appear to be generating any errors in the event viewer. I have also come across some previous posts that stated you may be able to install a new printer with a generic driver first and then change it, but this does not work either. Any recommendations regarding how to correct this issue would be greatly appreciated.

How Do I Get Rid Of Or Add Notifications?

My new windows 7 professional 64 computer came witth 'trial' software. I removed the software either through an 'uninstall' option or with add/remove programs. Unfortunately the 'notifications' were not removed. How can i remove the notifications for these programs? How can i create my own notifications? (Note: i have extensive experience adding, changing, and removing keys and values in the windows xp professional registry. ) I have already used regedit in windows 7 in an attempt to locate registry entries containing he word 'notification.

Libraries Not Working, Cannot Add New Ones

I just installed win 7 professional (and activated it) and the libraries section in windows explorer doesn't work. Instead of showing the default ones (documents, music, pictures, videos) it displays some links, documents. Library-ms, music. Library-ms, pictures. Library-ms, videos. Library-ms. If i click on them nothing happens. Also these libraries show up the same way in the star menu (as weird links). It doesn't let me add new ones either. If i right-click libraries and choose new, there's no option, it is empty. I include the links to pictures so you can see the problem.

This exact same problem happened when the first windows 7 evaluation copy was released, but it was fixed when the rc came out. But now that i bought the professional edition it happened again. :S

Add And Remove Programs Is Not Working

Suddenly, my 500 gb computer hard drive that had few used space is showing that i have 22 mb left. I can't figure out why. I have noticed that the programs that i have uninstalled in add or remove are still on my hard drive-folders as well as the megabytes they use. I am baffled! Can anyone make a suggestion. I think something is wrong with the windows.

My starry night enthusiast program is taking up 768 mb and windows did not install any of it. The fold er is still there. I had tried ibm lotus, and uninstalled it. It is still there. When i tried to contact microsoft for support, it has expired. That was a shock! It hasn't been out that long! Has anyone else had this problem? Can i just delete the folders since i did the uninstalls?

Add A Printer Error 0x0000052e

Windows 7 doesn't seem to like our environment at all. The latest problem is when i try to add a networked printer; after i enter the unc servershare printer name and choose next, i get this:

    Windows cannot connect to printer.
    Operation failed with error 0x0000052e.

The printer is hosted on a windows server 2003 r2 server, which has not shown this error to any windows xp or vista clients, only to windows 7 rc clients and for all printers. The printer driver is already installed locally, if that matters. I did not attempt to elevate (run as administrator) when i opened control panel->devices and printers, because i didn't see an option to do so. Anybody have an idea what's wrong with this?

Add A Shared Printer On A Network

I recently installed windows 7 64 bit and i'm trying to add an hp deskjet 970cse printer that's been shared on my corporate network. I went to hp's web site and looked for the appropriate windows 7 64-bit driver to download and found there isn't one, that it is supposed to be built into windows 7 and that windows 7 should find the driver automatically when i add the printer, which it doesn't seem to be able to do, at least for this shared printer. I moved the printer and physically connected it to my windows 7 system and w7 was able to install the correct driver.

I then put the printer back on the system on which it belongs and was still unable to connect to it through the network. I went through hp support to try to get them to send me the driver so i could point to it manually to get the printer installed that way but after much back and forth, they refused to do so.

The system on my corporate network on which the printer is physically connected and installed is a system running windows xp 32-bit with service pack 3. On my own w7 64-bit system, i go to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers and select "add a printer". I then select "add a network, wireless or bluetooth pinter". It searches and says "no printers were found" so i click "the printer that i want isn't listed". In the next dialog, i choose "select a shared printer by name", select the browse button, navigate to the system with the printer installed and select the printer. The correct printer share name is then displayed in the edit control and i click "next".

I get a message box with the caption "windows printer installation". The message says "connecting to hpdeskjet on nadpayne" on the first line and "looking for a driver" briefly on the second line before the message changes to "checking windows update. This might take a while. ". It continues for a little bit then displays a second message box with the caption "connect to printer" and the message "no driver found. Windows can't find a driver for hp deskjet 970c series on the network. To locate one manually, click ok. Otherwise, click cancel and consult your network administrator or the printer manufacturer's website. "

Is it possible to add this printer to my w7 64-bit system when it's shared out bya winxp 32-bit system? If yes, how?

Is there a way to add it to the list of satellites in mce or do i have to use terratec's (not as good) software that can find it?

View / Add Printers To Client Pc

We have a windows 2003 domain and a mix of windows xp and windows 7 pcs. I am using a windows 7 pc. I can view a remote machines simply by typingcomputername just fine. With xp machines i can view they're locally installed printers and make changes to them. On windows 7 clients, i cannot. I get "you do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation". I cannot view the printers on any machine nor can i add a printer to any machines.

Once again. Everything works fine on windows xp clients. How can i correct this? I turned on network discovery and file and print sharing. It didn't seem to make any difference. Even when clicking on the 'view remote printers' of any windows 7 client pc, it shows 0 items even though there are 5 printers installed locally. I am a domain admin with local admin rights on all pcs. What is going on?

Add Nas Shares To Index

I have a qnap nas with a number of network shares i'd like to add to the index. Under control panel > indexing options, the nas and any mapped drives are not listed, however an answer here indicates this may be due to an access right issue on the folder. Unfortunately the solution of adding system to the folder permissions doesn't work as the permissions on the nas are controlled by the nas itself (eg. , Adding mynasusername would work, but w7laptopsystem does not).

Is there a way around this? I have seen some symbolic link hacks, but from what i've read, it isn't bulletproof (ie. , Some actions such as printing don't follow the link properly and result in a file not found). I also do not want to make the shares available offline as i do not have the space on my hard drive to cache that much data.

It seems ridiculous that adding network shares requires all this hoop jumping - why aren't network locations available by default in the indexing options?

Unable To Add Bluetooth Devices

According to this article, if i type in bluetooth in the "search programs and files" start menu text area i should see four items under control panel. Unfortunately, i only see three - the one i'm missing is "add a bluetooth device". Any ideas as to what i can do to see it?
 
I also tried going to "add a device" in the control panel, as per this article and was unable to find my bluetooth enabled device, even though it was set up to be discoverable. Any ideas? Before you ask, my computer does have bluetooth installed. Or at least the manufacturer spec sheet said it did when i bought it.

Disable Ie Add-on Via Group Policy

My organization recently began deploying sophos antivirus on our windows 7 32-bit workstations. After deploying to a subset of our machines, we encountered an issue where the sophos browser helper object (bho) prevented certain intranet pages from displaying. Sure enough, disabling the sophos add-on would then allow affected users to view the web page. I would like to disable this add-on on all machines for the time being, with the end goal of enabling it when sophos updates their bho to where it doesn't block content on our intranet.

I have attempted disabling the add-on by using group policy. The method i used is documented here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883256. I've also attempted to disable the add-on by editing the registry per the same kb article, but i haven't had success with this method, either. Do you have any suggestions on what i can do to disable this add-on organization-wide while still allowing the ability to enable it later?

Problem With Office Live Add-in 1.5

Unlike every update i have done when the office live add-in 1. 5 updated i was asked to accept terms & conditions in a window & i did. Then windows defender told me that a program change had taken place. Immediately thereafter my computer started running extremely slow, but ran. I checked for viruses with the programs i had & it was ok. Then i restored to an earlier date. After a while the computer ran normally. Needless to say i again had the office live add-in 1. 5 to update.

I tried again & again the request to accept terms. And again windows defender reported that a system change had taken place. At that point i stopped the update not wanting further problems. I'd like to know why this would happen. I am of course early to make this update & it is still in my windows update file. I run windows vista home edition.

Add Another Computer To Folder Access

I have windows 7 ultimate acting as the "server" on a network. This unit has multiple users on it. In the office i also have additional computers, (different computer names), with the exact same users/passwords setup on them. They match the "server" computer. I am now trying to setup security on the "server". What i would like to do is share a folder with specific privileges that allow/restrict access to specific users. The problem is i can not change the "from this location" when adding a user/group. I need to allow the user serveruser1 and officersuser1, etc. To have specific access to various files/folders. How can i do this?

Add Email To Default Settings

I have a new computer with windows 7. I've installed and have been using "live" as my email account without any major issues. However i do not have any email showing as my default because i do not show mail at all in my default settings. I understand how to get to the default settings, i know how to change existing default settings, what i can't figure out is how to add mail to the default settings to then make my "live" email my default. Anyone?

Media Center Will Not Install Add-in

Very strange problem. I go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-media-center/launch/easylaunch-netflix.aspx to get the netflix add in for media center, already installed it on a different machine running windows 7 with no problem. I get all the normal warning messages, media center finally launches, then nothing, it just sits there waiting for me to do something.

No error messages, no complaints. On the other machine i immediately get a log in screen for netflix and everything works fine. The only real difference between the machines is that this one is a laptop with windows pre-installed and the machine that works is one i built myself. Don't even know where to start looking and don't seem to find anyone else with a similar problem.

Rights Management Add-on Issue

I'm working in an ad rms project with a customer and i'm having issues displaying rms protected e-mails with owa (exchange 2007). We're testing with 3 windows 7 (ie8) machines, and when we try to open a protected e-mail we're asked to install the ie add-on, (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Familyid=b48f920b-5af0-46b4-994f-2f62582cc86f&displaylang=en) which we have installed. But after install the add-on and try to disply the protected message, ie hangs with a blank page. We try this with the 3 machines with the same result.

Any thought on what may be the problem? (Everything works fine with outlook and other office apps) something i noticed is that in the ie add-on download page, windows vista and 7 are not listed as supported o. S. , So is there another ie add-on for win vista and 7.

Keep Getting Update For Office Live Add-in 1.5

Every time my computer restarts it shows there is a windows update that has been downloaded but not installed. The update is the office live add-n 1. 5. I click on the update to install it and it runs for a little while then it tells me that the update is not needed. When i check my installed programs i can see that the office live add-in is already installed. I've tried unchecking the update, but it keeps showing up anyway. How do i get it to stop showing up? 

We use to be able to go online to windows update and stop updates from showing but in windows 7 it won't let me do that anymore. Also, i haven't had any updates since 6/9/10. Just this office live and a net framework client profile that didn't want to install either but that i fixed. Is there someway to figure out if i have all the updates i should have?

Error Message - Windows Cant Add Printer

Error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine". Having upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 bit from vista home premium 64 bit, i expected to be able to plug my epson stylus d68 printer into my laptop and have it installed straight away. However when i tried to do this installation constantly failed. I therefore went to the manual add printer option within the devices and printers menu.

However i was met with this message error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine", after checking existing forums on the issue i attempted to restart it from the services option. However the option to restart was blanked out and when i simply tried to start i was then met with another error message: "windows could not start the spooler service on the on local computer, error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

Additionally when i click on properties for the spooler in the description it says failed to read description. Error code:1813. This is all very frustrating for someone who simply wants to add a printer to his laptop. Can someone please help? Because i am all out of ideas.

Error Message - 0x00000002 - Add Printer

Network printer shows offline after disconnecting from the host machine. Error message 0x00000002 while trying to add the printer. Can't connect to printer in windows 7. I have a shared hp printer on lpt1 of a computer (the host) running windows 7. I temporarily disconnected the printer.

While it was disconnected, someone tried to print from another computer (client 1). I re-connected the printer and it works without trouble from the host computer. It also works from a client (client 2) that did not previously have the printer installed.

However, client 1 showed it as 'offline'. I could find no way to make it 'online'. I removed the printer from client 1's devices and tried to re-add it. I cannot re-add the printer. All i see is "error message 0x00000002". The printer is shared and available - nothing changed and it works from other clients. What is going on? This is ridiculous and extremely frustrating.

Problem - Add Drivers - Installation Failed

Problem: "add drivers - installation failed" in "sysyem recovery options". I am trying to repair a damaged "windows 7: ultimate installation" on a home built pc. The system has an esc geforce 6100pm-m2 motherboard, with phoenix bios, 4gb ram, and two wd hdd's with linux on one hdd and windows 7 on the other hdd. I cannot load windows 7, the original installation was corrupted by easybcd.

So i'm trying to repair the windows 7 installation using a window 7 repair disk. I can load windows from the cd, then go into "system recovery options". At this point it does not show the windows 7 installed on the hdd. But when i try to load the necessary sata drivers (using both usb stick and cd) - i get an error message "add driver: the installation has failed". I can load all the other drivers - no problems. I've downloaded the latest drivers and still get the same result.

Add Local Win 7 Printer To Mac

Before i upgraded to windows 7 i was able to go to the mac system preferences / print and fax and go to the add printer dialog and select the windows tab. Under that tab in the three pane window it would show workgroup/home-pc/printer where home-pc is my machine and printer was the name i chose for the canon mp780 that i shared via windows 7.

Once i upgraded to windows 7. I tried doing the same thing and nothing shows up on the windows tab in add printer dialog. I now have no idea how to add a local printer on my windows 7 box that i am sharing!?

Cannot Add Files On Mapped Network Drive

I am attempting to connect to my server via explorer, yet mapping a network drive isn't working correctly for me. I can delete files/directories just fine, although i am unable to upload any files. The error message i receive is: an error occurred opening the folder on the ftp server. Make sure you have permission to access this folder.

Details: the handle is invalid. There should not be an issue with permissions as i can connect via command prompt without problem, and i can delete files/directories so i should have write permissions. I have never experienced this issue with vista before, and the tech support on my host has no idea either. I'm running windows 7 x64, build 7100. I'll upload a dxdiag if more information is required.
