How To Find And Close A Program Using Mirror Drivers?


Aero troubleshooting told me that "a running program uses a mirror driver (a type of display driver) which is not compatible with the aero desktop experience. To allow aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror drivers, such as windows remote assistance and windows live mesh. "

Aero effects were working fine earlier in the day. I had to get help from hp for some printer problems and i allowed them access to my computer and they removed and then reinstalled the printer files and that works fine now but the aero effects do not.

I would appreciate any help.

Close Program Using Mirror Drivers - Aero Effects Are Not Working

How do i find and close a program using mirror drivers? My aero effects are not working because of this. I tried all the steps to remove mirror driver but i still not able to use aero. The device manager -> display adapter does not show any mirror driver. When i run the microsoft troubleshooter for aero it still gives the same error that mirror drivers exist. Additionally, i do not have the windows aero theme at all and the option to choose show window previews in task bar properties is disabled. Can you help to solve this ?

Error Message - Program Is Not Responding Close Down Anyway

Error message "program is not responding close down anyway" while using music programs, playing game and during system shutdown. Audio glitch with freezing - please helpthe other day my 64-bit windows 7 started messing up with audio. The moment i try to play a song on itunes it freezes and stays on the 0:00 time mark. I have to ctrl+alt+delete it to get it to close (it registers as "not responding").

Same thing happens with youtube, and any game i try to play. Even when i shut off my computer it has the "program is not responding close down anyway?" Prompt for the little audio noise when its turning off/logging off. When it has to play a sound for a usb being plugged in, it just plays really low static. Unfortunately, i am an idiot and don't have a full backup, only an online backup of about 2 gigs and i haven't updated in a while. I have a physical external hard drive now and backed it up, but obviously if it now working now, that wont do much.

Can't Do Clean Install - Can't Find Drivers

My sister's computer crashed so she bought a new one and gave me the old one to fix so i can use for my son's homework. It's an hp g60 235dx2ghz dual core t42001mb l2 cache3gb ram320gb hdhad vista home premium sp1 (before it crashed)there is nothing on there i want to save. I want to do a complete clean install of windows 7. I bought the 32-bit version because i was told that would be easiest and most simple form to get any version of windows running again on the laptop.

The laptop won't boot regardless, so i wanted to try the custom install but it keeps telling me it "can not install the device drivers" and asks me to browse for them but #1, i have no idea which ones or where they are to browse-to, and #2, even when i look in the "my computer" area, it doesn't list the 320gb hard drive what-so-ever. Does this mean the computer (and my purchase of windows 7) is a total loss?

Uninstall Printer Software And Drivers / Program

How do i completely uninstall printer software and drivers if control panel uninstall a program utility results in error message? I have a brother mfc-9440cn multi-function printer/fax/scanner.

When i bought my new 64-bit windows pc, brother didn't have any windows 7 drivers, so i used the original (windows xp) software to get the device up and running. It did work perfectly - i could print but not scan. Plus i wasn't able to set it up as a shared printer so other family members on our home network could print to this device.

Now that brother has 64-bit windows 7 compatible software and drivers available, i'm having trouble installing it. When i try to install it, i get the message that "mfl-pro suite is already installed. Do you want to uninstall and then proceed with installation?" I click yes and then within the brother mfl-pro suite installshield wizard i get the message "an error occured during the installation. Please restart your pc, ensure all active applications are closed - then reinstall "mfl-pro suite. "

I have already tried the control panel uninstall a program utility and end up with exactly the same error message.

I have downloaded an uninstall utility from brother and end up with exactly the same error message.

I tried looking under regedit, hkey_local_machine > software > microsoft > windows > currentversion > uninstall for any stray registry entries relating to brother. There aren't any!

I need to find a way to completely remove the now non-functioning mfl-pro suite software and brother drivers so that i can install the new windows 7 compatible version. Can anyone help with this?

Raid 1 (mirror) Across 3 Or More Devices

We have been running a mirrored 2-drive setup happily since installing windows 7. However now that a sale has allowed us to add a third disk we are unable to locate an instruction manual or obvious disk management action to either add a new drive to an existing mirror, extend an existing mirror to a new device, or break/re-create the mirror across more than two devices (the dialogue does not seem to allow multiple disk selection). This is additionally frustrating since every other modern operating system, even free ones, has supported multiply redundant raid-1 storage for a very long time. Windows 7 ultimate surely also supports that solution?

Mirror Drive (raid 1) Issues

I upgraded from windows 7 home premium to windows 7 professional to obtain the ability to mirror 2 hard drives. After i mirrored them, i had an alert icon on the 2nd drive, and then after a time, an alert icon appeared on the main drive. So, now both have alert icons. It says "re-syncing" and sometimes will show a percentage, but never goes all the way through. If i close the window, it restarts the syncing. If the computer goes to sleep, the same thing appears to happen. Is the alert and "re-syncing" a normal part of the process? Do i need to keep the computer from sleeping during the process?

Disable Or Remove Raid 1 Mirror

How can i disable or remove raid 1 mirror in windows 7? I have just bought a new desktop with windows 7. I bought it on-line, and ticked the box marked "raid 1 mirror" without understanding properly what it meant. My machine is now here, and of course one hard disk is partitioned into two, whilst the other is invisible on my sytem and, i assume, just a copy of the data on disk one.

Now that i know what raid is, i realize i don't need it, and would like to have regular use of my two hard discs. I have the 64-bit windows 7 disc so can simply re-install windows 7 if need be, if that is the answer, but would welcome nice clear advice, please.

Using Mirror Volume Of A Basic Disk Without Converting It To Dynamic

How to use mirror volume of a basic disk without converting it to dynamic disk? I have two 500gb hard drive attached to my pc running windows 7. I want the software drive (d:) [in the primary hard disk] should be backed up automatically on the other hard drive. I learned a lot from the internet about mirror volume in dynamic disks. In that case i need to convert both hard disks to dynamic disk.

My question is, is there any other way to make a mirror disk of the drive to the secondary hard disk without converting the primary hard drive to dynamic disk? [I have no problem to convert the second hard disk to dynamic disk, but i don't want the first hard drive to be converted to dynamic. ] If it is not possible via windows, is there any 3rd party software to do seamless backup of a drive to different disk without any dynamic disk conversion ?

Print Problem - Ie Prints Pdf File As Mirror Image

When i try to print a pdf file from ie it prints as a mirror image. I can change this in the printer driver, but the next time it will default to mirror printing again. If i copy the file to the desktop, open it from there and print, everything is. I have asked hp (printer manufacturer) and they say that since it prints ok from the desktop, it is not a printer problem.

Ie8 Slow To Close

I run vista home premium (32) on an hp pavillion dv6809wm laptop, 3 gig ram. I use ms internet explorer 8 and it runs as well for me as for anyone, most of the time- speed ok, page load ok- not too many issues. But it routinely does something that drives me fugbuck. When i go to close it, it disappears from the screen and from the taskbar, but the shortcut on my dt stays highlighted for anywhere from 30 seconds to >2 minutes, during which time i cannot do anything else.

I can't even open task manager to see if something is eating resources. I regularly clean out temp files and other garbage; i am savvy enough to do all the basic things that are usually suggested first. I also do not enable any add-ons except adobe pdf, do not use yahell toolbar or any other tool bars. Doesn't do it all the time, but at least one time in three. Anyone heard of this one?

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close

About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

How do i get my computer to run like it was before ?

Close Lid Problem In Dell Studio 1555 Laptop

In power settings on my dell studio 1555 laptop, i changed close lid action to "do nothing" the laptop still stopped display when i tried to close the lid and use an external monitor only. I found this support forum about windows vista: http://social. Msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/06d8f624-bdd3-4d45-a62a-60c9bcb81f57

Within the thread, i found a workaround which neutralizes the menacing acpi lid driver. So microsoft, please fix this awful acpi lid driver that still screws up laptops that are connected to external monitors! This problem is at least 3 and a half years old.
