Display, Task Manager


Okay, so i somehow changed the look of my task manager and now it doesn't help me with anything. It was the regular task manager when i bought it then one day it was just different. The only thing that it shows when i go to task manager after (ctrl, alt, del) is (headings at the top) user, id, status, client name, session. Thats all it shows as headings at the top. Then at the bottom it has two buttons, disconnect, log-off. When i try and right click to get more options it only shows disconnect or log-off as options.

Task Manager Does Not Start

When i try to start the task manager by right clicking the activity bar and selecting start task manager i get an error saying the taskmgr.exe file can not be found. The path suggested is c:windowssystem32askmgr.exe. When looking in that folder the file is there.

If i do ctrl-alt-delete and select to start it from there i get returned to the previous screen without task manager or error. Ctrl-shift-esc has no effect.

I've tried running a copy of the taskmgr.exe that worked on another computer running 64-bit windows 7. I am running a 64-bit windows 7 on intel core2 quad (q8300) any ideas?

Task Manager Not Showing Options

There is no meters, nothing. I can't check my ram usage or cpu usage or anything. Error messages. I get a pop up every time i restart asking me what program i want to use to open the pop up. So i open it in notebook and it says it's something about my real-tech network device. And something about a loop. Recent changes you made to your computer. What you have already tried to fix the problem. I've tried to reset it following some advice on line but i just get the pop up now and it still doesn't work.

Applications Crash And Cannot Be Closed Down In Task Manager

I have recently upgraded to windows 7 from vista as i bought my laptop about october last year and
Received a free upgrade. It worked ok for 2 days. Now i cannot open internet explorer or windows explorer. Applications crash and cannot be closed down in task manager. Windows will not log off or shut down. This is worse than the early days of vista. This has effectively ruined my laptop. I tried to log on to microsoft for technical help but my product key was rejected and i was asked to pay £46. 00. And i cannot download a compatible version of internet explorer

Task Manager Can't Log Off User

I have windows 7 home premium with three accounts on it. Frequently someone else uses one of two the standard account on it and locks it down, i come along and log in with my administrators and log in and try to kill off their session. When i run task manager, highlight the standard account and then click logoff i get an error message user amy (sessionid=1) could not be logged off. Access is denied.

I've tried running task-manager from the system32 folder as administrator (even though my account is administrator) but i still get the same message. The amy (the standard user account) at this point shows in task manager as disconnected. How can i log of the other two users without re-booting please?

Multiple Instances Of Explorer.exe Running In Task Manager

There are multiple instances of explorer.exe running in task manager (currently 7), each one using between 10-40mb of memory. I've never seen this in any previous version, and it doesn't look right to me. Different explorer.exe processes are using cpu resources at different times. I remember reading a while back that this could be a sign of a virus, but i've done a full scan with nis 2010 and nothing showed up. Can anyone give me pointers where to start investigating?

I did a clean install of windows 7 last friday -formatted hdd and all, so there hasn't been much time for anything bad to happen!

Event Id 41 Task 63 Error

Since installing win7, home premium, 64bit, on a computer (6 days ago) i have been getting this error daily.computer initially used with win xp with no issues-this problem occurred after upgrading memory from 4 gb to 8 gb and installing win7 clean install. Memory passed memory test so i don't think the memory addition is the problem. Early instances involved bsod while running but after running system file checker which found and corrected errors i have not seen the bsod. Now the problem shows up on a cold start after what appeared to be a normal shut down.

Here is data:

Cannot Perform Any Administrator Task

Alright, i am running 32bit win 7 pro os. It was working almost great until now i see these messages everytime i do any administrative action like install, uninstall or run any application. "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect""the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation. ""You do not have sufficient access to uninstall . Application""an unexpected error has occurred. The troubleshooting wizard cannot continue"i cannot connect to the internet.

I cannot uninstall/install any application i cannot run most of the applications. I cannot run regedit.exe. I cannot even run on safe mode (by pressing f8)  i cannot turn on my firewall. I just cannot do any thing. I am in a software jail. I looked many things on the website but could not find anything that can solve my problems. I ran mcafee and everything is coming out clean. I can access my data though. How can i solve these problems without reinstalling windows 7.

Task Scheduler Under Administrator Tools

When i go into the task scheduler a message box appears which states "task background configsurveyor: the task image is corrupt or has been tampered with", when you click on the ok button it disappears, but it is comes up everytime you go into task scheduler. There no error code. I found a blogger who had a similar problem, but the instruction to fix it was for windows vista. I tried to follow the instructions and could not find the 'user_feed_synchronization' so i stopped. Is there a fix for windows 7 home edition, 32bit

Random Bsods - Event 41, Task 63

I am experiencing intermittent bsod crashes. The crashes do not correspond to high levels of activity, high operating temperatures or any other pattern that i can perceive. If anything, they occur most frequently shortly (seconds) after bootup or while the system is idle. The system is not overclocked. I have the latest bios available from msi and the latest optical drive, ethernet, gpu, and audio drivers.

(A side note on the ethernet driver. The latest version available from realtek's website is 7. 11. 1127. 2009.microsoft update recommended an update to the driver which i installed on feb. 6. This driver version was 7. 12. 128. 2009. I have experienced bsods with both versions of the driver. Currently i'm running realtek's latest version as i'm unclear how microsoft could have a more up-to-date version than the manufacturer. )

I have already tested the ram using memtest86. I've run in excess of 16 passes without returning any errors. I've also tested the hard drive using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility and chkdsk /r /f. Hard drive checks out fine. I've stress tested the system using prime95 and seti@home and the system has not shown any tendency to crash during stress testing. I've also run system file checker. It does not return any errors.

I've posted the minidump files here: http://expedientweb.com/bsod-dump.zip

I've posted the event logs here: http://expedientweb.com/event_log.zip

The critical events (which i assume are the bsod events) all run along these lines:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Using Task Scheduler To Send An Email

How to use task scheduler to send an email? I have windows live mail + windows 7 i want my computer to send an email to someone on it's own. I opened task scheduler and created a new task using task scheduler to 'send and email'. The problem is that the program only asks me who it's to, who the email is from and what smtp server to use. It doesn't ask for my mail server log-in and username so in theory it would fail. And when it comes to send the message, currently it doesn't do anything without any error message. I have 2 email accounts setup in windows live mail but how do i tell the task scheduler program which email account to use and how to login to the account to send it?

Scheduled Task Fails To Start Ms Access

I have scheduled task that worked in xp to open an access database. In w7 access starts (shows running in task manager), but will not run the code or interact with the desktop. Tried the following:

Trigger @ 5:30 am, action "start a program" program/script c:projectmiscreports. Mdb no arguments and no "start in (optional)" no work.

Trigger @ 5:30 am, action "start a program" program/script "c:path and name of msaccess.exe" , arguments = c:projectmiscreports. Mdb - no work

Made . Bat file with this code that works when double clicked:

Rem start misc reports

C:projectmiscreport. Mdb

Put this code in program/script c:projectsstartreports. Bat - same result no work

With all tha above, ms access is running in task manager, but will not show on the desktop

Issue: Cannot Perform Any Task Using One Of The User Accounts

I've just installed windows 7 ultimate on an acer veriton m410. When logged in as administrator, the computer works without any problems. If i log in under my user name, there are several problems that take place. The first issue i noticed is i cannot explore "my computer. " I simply get an empty window and an icon indicating the computer is busy. Eventually, i get an error message that windows explorer needs to be restarted. I am not able to check the contents of my hard drive. In addition, when i try to log off from my user account, the computer stays on the log off screen continuously, and never logs me off. Again, if i am logged in as administrator, i have no problem logging off and shutting down the computer. Ny ideas how i can fix this?

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7 home 64 bit a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers not wait for the consumer to purchase windows 7 and have to deal with all the problems!

Power Options Page Doesn't Display "dim The Display" Option

I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and the power options page doesn't display a "dim the display" option, nor do the keyboard commands to dim the display do anything. I am running a lenovo g530 machine and there does not seem to be driver support for windows 7 on their support page. However i downloaded the mobile intel 45 chipset graphics driver for windows 7 and i downloaded the newest bios update; nether seemed to solve the problem.

Ie Download Manager Feature

This might be more of a suggestion for a future feature in microsoft internet explorer, but is there any sort of download manager available in the ie8 browser? Something along the lines of getright, such that it resumes downloads if they time out or have to be paused?

I think it is odd that we have exponential increases in hard drive space and online data storage, but ie still stalls when downloading or uploading files. I am taking an online class through my university but i am unable to download files very easily because ie8 keeps stalling and ending the download early, sometimes also being unable to resume it even when i try to re-download the file immediately. I was hoping getright would solve my problem but my school uses a forwarding procedure to download the videos (e.g. , Clicking the link downloads "download. Mov", which then changes to the actual file link "class. Mp4"). I am unable to find the full link for class. Mp4 and so am kinda in limbo for now.

Does ie8 have any sort of built-in download manager or have one available as an add-on?

Boot Manager Is Missing

I'm having the same problem as others with the boot manager is missing error. I format my hard drive before every installation, but the only way that i can boot into windows is if i keep the system disc in the cd drive. If i remove the disc from the cd drive, i get this boot mgr missing error.

Microsoft has never built an os that performs, is stable, and has no errors. Why is microsoft so popular, when their operating systems quite obviously suck! I have a custom build, can't call anyone for support, and microsoft won't back the garbage that they sell with free support, why, because for one thing, they don't can't fix their own garbage, and for another thing, they are always overwhelmed with all the errors from their garbage. They've been building this garbage for years, when are they going to get one right?

Device Manager Error

A while ago, i needed to check on some drivers for an ir device and opened the device manager.
Sometimes, i have to do this regularly, but each and every time i try to open it, i get a message that says, "navigation the web page was canceled. " Then a message pops up that says mmc has stopped working. I am confused as to what is going because all other options/tools in mmc work except device manager. I have searched the internet all over for a solution, but can't seem to find a working one.

No Monitor Showing In Device Manager

I have a hannspree 28" monitor with an hdmi connection to an asus radeon 4890 graphics card. This set-up works fine in vista ultimate 32 bit in the screens default resolution of 1920 x 1200.
Ever since i installed windows 7 64 bit, in a dual boot scenario, i have been unable to get win 7 working correctly in normal mode, it works in safe mode but only at 1600 x 1200.

If i attempt a start in normal then the boot sequence stalls however i can open win 7 in normal if i remove the radeon 4890 from the display adapter element in the device manager. Win 7 installs the re-installs the 4890 but i can not get the correct resolution. With the latest ati drivers installed in the card there is no monitor showing in the device manager at all.

Flashget Download Manager Problem

I just got a new computer with windows 7 home premium and have run into problems with download managers. I tried to set up flashget but it won't let me drag and drop links into the download manager and when i click on them individually it just bings straight away without downloading the archive. I thought it might be a compatibility issue with windows 7 and flashget but i've tried a couple of other download managers now and faced the same problem. Is there a setting i need to change or if anybody has any advise of insight it would be much appreciated.

Disable Button In Device Manager Greyed Out

I am trying to disable a device in device manager of windows 7 64-bit pro. But the button is greyed out and in the drop down list (if i right click on the device) the option to disable is also not available. Is there a way to get that option back?

This is for the touchpad of my sony laptop. I want to use a little software i found that can automatically enable/disable the touchpad depending on the presence of an external mouse. But this software wants to disable the touchpad. But it can't because the option is missing from device manager.

Hard Drive In Device Manager Can't Be Seen By Computer

Hard drive in "device manager" can't be seen by "computer". I installed a hard drive from a mac as a backup expecting that i could reformat it and it would all work. But, as far as i know, i need to be able to "see" it in computer in order to reformat it. It does show up in device manager. I uninstalled it, rebooted, and it reinstalled automatically, like it should. Still doesn't solve the problem.
