Cannot Disable Program Compatibility Assistant

I'm hoping someone can provide me with a way to disable the program compatibility assistant. I had this same problem during the beta, but of course during beta testing i was using windows 7 ultimate. First off let me begin by pointing out that i am running using windows 7 home premium.

That said, i realize this means that the most common solution, using local group policy editor to disable the program compatibility assistant will not work, as home premium does not include gpedit. Msc.

Now this is the confusing part, at least for me. I found an alternative solution specifically meant to address this limitation. I was directed to access services, and upon locating program compatibility assistant service, stop the service and then disable it (via properties for that service). I did exactly that. It's stopped and the startup type is "disabled". I even rebooted.

Now here is the part that confuses me. It still comes up. How can it do that when i have the service stopped? Is it another aspect of windows 7 security i'm unaware of that needs to be disabled?

As a note, when i attempted to install the software in question i did choose to "run as administrator", just in case, and that still had no benefit. If anyone knows what i should do, including instructions on editing my registry, let me know.

Computer Cannot Read Camera

I have a sony laptop (vaio pcg-6hcp) running xp professional and a fji fnepix a500 camera. All used to work fine though the camera is not great! The camera still links to other computers ok. Now when i try to read the camera on laptop an error message comes up' g:dcim not accessible. Incorrect function" i presume this relates to some bug that has crept into the laptop setup since it used to work ok but am not aware of any changes made at the time this fault started up.

Have tried reinstalling the disc i had with camera, but i couldn't tell if this had a driver file on it-just seemed to install some photo handling software and nothing changed. Anyone any thoughts on where to look for bugs or what files might be worth seeking out and reinstalling?

Photos Will Not Rotate After Importing From Camera

Photos will not rotate when i copy them from my camera to the computer, however when i open them up in photoshop or other photo editors, the photo is rotated to the correct position already. This problem gives me a different orientation using photo editors and a different orientation using the windows default picture viewer.

Photos taken on the camera are automatically rotated based on how i was holding the camera. Then when i put them on the computer (i don't use an import program, i just copy and paste) they are shown in the wrong orientation (usually vertical pictures are horizontal). Now i rotate them to fix them until i open them up and photoshop and my pictures are actually upright to begin with.

Basically i rotate photos when it is already rotated to the correct position. The problem is that windows vista and 7 always show the wrong preview. This is frustrating because i can't find the correct rotation. If i do ps my photos will always be in one orientation and then when using windows to preview images it's in another orientation. What's the problem? I noticed this happens on my friend's computers as well.

Canon Eos 40d Camera Not Recognised

I am hoping people here can help. I have been trying this all weekend with no success. I have a canon eos40d camera. It previously connected fine with xp, but now, not with win7 (32bit). I have installed the latest canon utilities (but according to them, they do not provide the drivers). They tell me that the camera should work just by connecting the camera to the computer by usb. When i do this, i encounter the error "driver not installed properly".

I have looked to see if it is recognized as a storage drive of sorts in my computer, but it does not appear there either. Canon tells me that the wia driver allows it to communicate with the computer. I have been looking for a win 7 wia driver to no avail. I have searched forums and the net for solutions to no avail. I have even read about changing the communication method to ptp or something in the camera's menu system. My camera does not have that option (or at least, i have not been able to find it).

Win 7 Crash When Disconnecting Usb Camera

Have noticed that several usb connected devices will crash the os if they are disconnected after use. The 'safely remove' option does not appear to prevent this. Problem was first noticed when transcribing video tapes using a roxio vhs connector, but have same issue with olympus camera connection. After use, if the usb cable is unplugged, the os crashes immediately - no bsod or error log entry. All the error log shows is that the machine was powered off incorrectly. Host machine is an acer with amd dual core processor. Issue does not occur with xp on same box.

Vaio Vgn-nw130j Motion Eye Camera Not Working

I upgraded from vista x64 to win 7 x64, everything went smooth except my motion eye camera. For some reason it stopped working, i have tried downloading the and installing the arcsoft web companion software that came with the laptop and also the new software and can't get the camera to work. In device manager the camera is not even listed as a imaging device, it shows as 5u876 device. I tried installing the ricoh 5u876 software for that device and still have the same problem.

I even tried downloading the driver pack for compatibility for windows 7 and also tried running everything in vista compatibility and nothing fixes the issue. I have searched through the forums and tried numerous fixes that other people suggested in other threads, but none of them have worked. If anyone has any other idea i would appreciate the help, my vaio model is a vgn-nw130j.

Connect Camera As Mass Storage Class - Cannot Download File

I have a problem described in microsoft article id: 814390 whereas i cannot download an . Avi file since it is 1. 7gb. The recommended solution is: "you can connect the camera by using usb mass storage class (msc) instead of ptp. Then, transfer large files by using windows explorer. ""Well, that sounds simple enough, " i thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find ptp or msc in the computer anywhere. Even the help and support center (f1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

Cannot Find An Icon

I deleted the icon for ie8 on the start menu and the desktop, not knowing it would cause me not to be able to open it. It seems i've tried everything - i've searched the start menu and i've turned ie8 on and on in the 'turn windows features on or off' section of the control panel. I've also recently checked the program files for it, but the closest thing i can find is a file named iexplorer.exe. Mui , and whenever i try to open it, a window comes up saying it cannot be found.
How can i get ie8 back?

Printer Icon Disappeared

I recently did a reinstall of windows 7 (64-bit) to deal with printer installation problems. In general, the result has been satisfactory. A canon usb printer installed automatically to a usb port. A hp laserjet 5 has been installed as the default printer on lpt1. However, the icon for the laserjet, which appeared when i installed the printer, has now disappeared; the printer still functions as the default, but i can't directly examine its property sheet.

Opening the property sheet for the canon printer and looking at the allocation of ports, i can see that lpt1 is assigned both to the laserjet and to a "quicken pdf printer. " I haven't installed any pdf printer hardware, although i have installed the quicken program. Possibly, the solution is to shift the laserjet to lpt2, but i can't see how to do that.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How To Enable Power Icon?

When i installed windows 7 last weekend, there was a power icon in the system tray that i unintentionally disabled. How do i get it back? There is no entry for power when i click customize on the systray so i can't enable it through the ui. I also looked in the registry to verify that the icon was not disabled there.
 
The ups shows up in the device manager and powercfg correctly identifies it (apc es550). The battery is obviously working because i can unplug the ups and the machine continues to work. It would be nice though, to be able to see the battery status.

I've read a number of messages from people complaining about the power icon but i'd be happy just to see it. What's the secret here?
