Website Links Incorrect Operation


I am having several problems with my windows 7 oem on a newly purchased dell desktop commuter and a windows 7 upgrade from vista on a dell laptop. Every time i go to the windows 7 pages and ask a question about one of the problems (like the fact that settings change back to default, sound, mouse, etc. ) I am directed to a page that has answers for windows vista. That does me no good obviously, and so i become frustrated and wonder about the product which will not perform successfully and the proper availability of help.

There Is Not Enough Space Available To Complete This Operation

I install windows 7 upgrading from windows xp. My total hard disk is 500gb. But after installing windows 7 it shows 150gb disk space is unallocated. I tried in disk management i.e right clicking on "150gb unallocated disk" then new simple volume. Then format then next-next then finish and it shows error "there is not enough space available to complete this operation". N haa, i have done system restore in windows xp. Since pc gone slow & with sum problems.

But it doesn't work. Therefore, i installed windows 7 which retain pc faster. I think system restore occupy that 150gb disk space. So it's showing unallocated. How to retain back my total 500gb back. Give me proper solution.

I decided to restore the factory of my asus u30jc laptop but after restoring the last dvd and restarting, the operation has been stopped! It stops on the state in which the word asus is on monitor but doesn't continue! Pressing any key or putting dvd in dvd player, doesn't make any changes on this state!When i put power button it shots down quickly and putting it again make this page displayed. What should i do now? I would add that, before restoring backup, the speaker made some strange noise and when i put my hand on it or around webcam place on top of monitor, it made a voice like screeching.

This Operation Requires An Interactive Window Station

The issue i am having is with installing a driver for my usb keyboard. The wizard finds the "generic usb hub" driver for my keyboard, but ends up with the error "this operation requires an interactive window station". I have seen some of the other forums with similar sounding issue and so i followed the steps of  doing a selective startup, and then doing a system restore, and finally just to be sure i uninstalled mcafee. However none of these steps have worked.

I get this error message when i click on hyper-links in office programs: "this operation has been canceled due to restriction in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator. " How do i fix? I just upgraded to windows 7.

Error Norton - Operation Returned / Timeout Period Expired

I've a new alienware pc with windows 7 ultimate. I put norton antivirus 2009 on it and performance went poor. I uninstalled norton using its complete uninstall utility. I then installed microsoft security essentials. I now cannot get windows defender to run. I suspect norton turned it off & did not clean up after itself.

When i try to start it from the control panel, it reports that it is turned off. When i click the provided link to turn it back on, i am now getting an error code " operation returned because the timeout period expired 0x800705b4" i've searched ms answers on that code without finding any information i could use.

Incorrect Password

Just today, i went a bought myself a nice hp laptop, windows 7, 64-bit operation system, and so on. And after i created the 5 recovery disc's, i restarted my computer. Before i had created the discs, i set up a password and account and such, but when i restarted my computer. It said the password was incorrect, for some odd reason. I am wondering how i could bypass the password? In the old system, all i had to do was go into the administrator account and reset it from there, but i didn't set up the administrator account, and i swear i'm typing in the same password, i even tried using the fn key, and ctrl+shift stuff, as well as caps lock.

Incorrect Network Password

I have recently upgraded to win 7 and have a problem connecting to the password protected part of my file server (hard disk router accessible via network router). After login procedure all i get is an alert box claiming "incorrect network password" (retranslated message, sorry if it's not the literal english expression). From the other two computers in my network, still running on xp, i have no problem to login. If i temporarily discard the password on the file server i have no problem to access my files. So, it seems that win 7 has some sort of problem with sending the password. I have tried every tip and trick in windows help to no avail. What is this, and how can i solve the problem?

The Username Or Password Is Incorrect

I too am, or was, receiving this message as soon as i turned my win 7 hm os on. I bought the pc from fry's electronics and it was an open box - previous display model. Obviously when they put it on display they did the first turn on (and thus i lost the opportunity to go through the orientation/demonstration of win 7), but they also obviously put a password on with the administrator, and that must be what the pc starts to.

I tried following the advice:
  
It's as i expected: you're driving on auto-pilot with an incorrect password. Now do this:
1. Tick the box.
2. Single-click your account name.
3. Untick the box.
4. Click ok.
5. Enter your password (=blank) when prompted.
6. Reboot to check things.
7. If all is well, make a note of the process for future reference.

But if the "tick" means a single left clicked on the "okay", when i did it took me to my user name sign on screen. Seeking to rid the first step, i followed the advise:

It's as i expected: you're driving on auto-pilot with an incorrect password. Now do this:
1. Tick the box.
2. Single-click your account name.
3. Untick the box.
4. Click ok.
5. Enter your password (=blank) when prompted.
6. Reboot to check things.
7. If all is well, make a note of the process for future reference

Now the pc turns onto to my desktop totally bypassing the requirement for me, or anyone who turns it on, to have to enter a password. Can anyone help me possibly returning to the setting when the pc was first turned on out of the box, without a total restart.

Printer Prints Incorrect Characters

Since windows 7 does not display all of the characters i need i used 'eudcedit' in order to create my own. This works great in windows. I have no problem using the characters i create in programs. The problem arises when i go to print a newly created character on my hp p3005 laserjet printer. The printer does not print the characters which i create. According to my hp pcl 5 manual i can create my own characters. Why doesn't the driver which accompanied windows 7 for my printer inform the printer of how to create a character which i have created?How can i solve this problem?Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access

Incorrect Overlay Icons For Shortcuts

I rebooted my computer, and seemingly for no reason, my desktop shortcuts have a little software package overlay icon instead of the normal shortcut arrow. I've not done anything to try to change the shortcut arrow: i keep all the defaults. How can i set it back to the correct icon? Example of the issue: all these icons are shortcuts (. Lnk) files to either websites (redmondpie), programs (ie9 preview) or files (powerpoint file). The file on the far right is the actual powerpoint file (i created the shortcut to see if this issue affects newly created shortcuts, which is does):

Logon Username Or Password Is Incorrect

When i first got my brand new laptop with win7, i thought i would automate the logon procedure. I think i used task scheduler, which looked completely different to windows xp (what i was used to)i managed to get this thing to run every time the computer starts, but ive made a silly mistake. I just put a login name and a password and forgot that windows uses "workgroup" as a default domain (or something like that. Such as alphacomputer/martin as the login part) because of my little error it now gives me that annoying error (the name or pwd is wrong) every time i boot the computer: so i have to type my password manually, each time, which is exactly what i wanted to avoid.

My big problem is i cannot find the little schedule that i put in originally. Please can someone explain how i can search for the scheduled task. It is so different from xp, and there are 225 active tasks once the computer is logged in as me. (I tried a quick fix downloading tweak for win7-which has an auto logon feature- and it fixed the problem, but unfortunately this version of tweak is not free and expires, leaving the original problem).

I can load the home page but when i click to sign in it simply comes back to the home page and i can't get any further.

I have cleared the cache including cookies but still no luck.
I have the site listed in the trusted zone.
I have contacted the site and they say it is to do with ie8 so can't help.

Cannot Access Bank Website

Customer having trouble with our web site after getting new computer. I have a customer that has a new computer and tries to log in with his id and password onto our bank site and an error about his browser keeps popping up and not allowing him to access his account information. He has a dial up connection with netzero. I am at a loss with this and he is able to access his account on his work computer just fine. We have been trying to solve this issue for 2 weeks now. I (he) really needs some help with this before he goes to another bank and experiences the same problem.

Cannot Stay Signed In To A Website

First, my apologies if this takes a while to explain. We have 2 laptops. Mine runs vista and ie8. My partner's was originally running vista when he bought it last spring. He recently had it upgraded to windows 7 (64-bit version) and ie8. There is a website that we both sign on to with the same user id/password. I have no problems. He continually gets bounced out and it acts like he never signed in. He tries to look at something and it says he is not a member and to please sign in. Or it says he has been idle too long and to please sign in again (when he's been right there trying to click on something).

Every time he tries to click on something, it bounces him out. You can imagine the frustration this is causing. He did not have this problem until his pc was upgraded to windows 7 and ie8. Has anyone else experienced this? Just for full disclosure this is an adult website and he doesn't have problems with any other website.

Msn Email Address Or Password Incorrect

Just purchased a new computer that has windows 7 home premium 64 bit installed on it. I use msn as my home page. Every time i start up or reboot the system and try to get to my home page it asks me to put in my email address and password (despite the fact that i previously, and each subsequent time, checked the box to remember my email address and password). Then, to add insult to injury, it keeps on coming back with the error that email address or password is incorrect. I try a few more times with same results and then all of a sudden it works one time. Where do i go to fix this total annoyance?

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Website Blinks When I Move The Mouse

I have ie8 x64, and windows vista home x64. Ever since installing ie8 via windows update, i have had a very annoying problem. Lots of websites, including this page where i am submitting this question, blink or flash when i move the mouse. Just the page and elements on it, not the ie interface or windows task bar. I have read some confusing things as to whether this is an adobe flash player problem with ie8 x64 or just a glitch with ie8, but as it is doing it on this page, which from the source does not use adobe flash, i am not sure it is the problem.

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.
