Win 7 Freezes Media Programs

I recently installed windows 7 on my laptop. My computer works fine when i first turn it on, but after a while, most applications i have open (usually outlook, windows media player, adobe elements 7. 0 and internet explorer) gray out and freeze. Last night, i could not even copy music from a cd to my computer because the task could not complete and i ended up restarting the computer several times with no success. Skype is also failing and my contacts who are on line do not show as being on line. Do you have an idea of what the problem might be?

Dvd Maker Encoding Error

I'm trying burn some files but the encoding always stops at 0. 6% before generating the following error.

[Window title]
Windows dvd maker
[Main instruction]
Cannot create the dvd
An error occurred when burning the dvd.


A bit more background info:

- I'm running windows 7 pro
- I haven't got any other burning software (such as nero) installed
- There are 11 . Vob files to burn
- That's 106 of 150 minutes
- There aren't any effects or customized menu

Has anyone got any suggestions? Searching on the internet shows that there are people who are experiencing the same problems, but i'm not even sure what codecs are and how to check whether i have the right ones.

Install Screen Freezes

I am trying to install the 64 bit version of windows 7. I have the 32 bit of windows vista installed. I boot from the install disc and get through the language selection screen & then hit the install now button. After hitting the install now button it goes to the "loading set-up screen" and then just hangs. My computer is showing that it is doing something and the mouse still moves around the screen but the dvd drive doesn't start-up. I left it sitting there for about an hour and it didn't do anything else. It just stayed on the loading set-up screen.

I have am running a amd athlon x2 64 dual core processors, 2 gig of ram, and nvidia 8600 graphics cards.

Hotmail Freezes On Screen

I cannot access my email account email removed for privacy as of yesterday 29th july. I access this ok in the usual way and my inbox appears but i cannot access any emails. I notice that there is a new configuration to the email now and wondered if this had anything to do with it. My wife on the other hand can access her email via msn in the usual way. I have closed down my side bar thinking that this may be using up computer power but i don't really think this is the problem as this made no difference. Any answers?

Windows Media Player 12 Makes Screen Flicker In Programs

Windows media player 12 in windows 7 makes the screen "flicker" in some programs. I recently installed windows 7 home premium (x64 bit version) on my main computer, and so far am loving it. Recently however, as i've reinstalled many of the programs i had on my previous xp install, i started noticing this strange white flickering in some full-screen programs which seemed fairly random.

The game space empires: v, published by strategy first, is the most striking example i have found. Changing the program to run in windowed mode fixes the problem, but then i'm stuck with a window at 1024 x 768 resolution (can't be changed), which is a bit hard to see on my native monitor resolution of 1680 x 1050, not to mention aero cuts down on the performance by a fairly large chunk.

The problem seemed to come and go randomly until i noticed one common variable: i always had wmp open and playing music in the background whenever it happened. Closing wmp and running the program solved the problem every time. I've tried reinstalling wmp, reinstalling the other program, trying every graphical option in the program, all to no avail.

I'm using windows media player version 12. 0. 7600. 16415, and windows 7 x64 bit with all updates installed. This isn't the first major problem i've encountered with this version of wmp either, i can count at least 3 others, but nothing as annoying or disruptive as this.

Accessing Internet

On my laptop (dell inspiron 6000) which has windows xp, i cannot access the internet by url icon or hotmail icon. I immediately get an ie error message stating there is a problem and needs to close. The error signature is: appname: iexplore.exe, appver: 8. 0. 6001. 1872, modname: sepsearchhelperie.dll, modver: 1. 3. 59. 0, offset: 0000fbb4.

Although a 'webpage' appears i cannot select 'tools' and when i select 'close' on the error message the 'webpage' closes. My desktop pc works a. O. K. With no problems accessing internet, and likewise with another 'wireless' laptop. I have contacted my url provider but without success in resolving this problem.

Accessing Files From Xp Mode

Who Is Accessing Shared Files?

I run windows 7 ultimate 64-bit on a laptop that commutes with me between home and my office at university. When i am at school, my machine is assigned a global ip address, so i have the network set to "public". Today when i was exploring control panel, i noticed that "sharing" was turned on the "users" folder. When i went to disable sharing, i was informed that a user was accessing a file and would loose data if i disabled sharing. This concerns me because my data should not have been publicly accessible in such a manner. I need to determine who was accessing my files remotely, and more importantly what was accessed. Additionally, why was "users" shared in the first place on a public network?

Accessing Files From An Old Installation

I have a pc that i have just built with new parts. I have taken the hard drive from the old pc and installed it as a 2nd drive. I am now having trouble accessing files. Specifically, i'm trying to get into the local data folder in my old user account to get an old iphone backup. When i try to access i get "access denied" and when i try to change ownership nothing changes.

When i go into security properties and try to remove the listing "account unknown(s-5-21-. )" It says it's receiving permissions from it's parent and to try turning off the option for inheriting options. Does anyone know where that setting is? I've tried searching for it, but with no luck.

Accessing Xp Only Usb Device Seamlessly

Ok, while upgrading a setup to xp-professional, the problem arose that the old scanner didn't have a viable driver for windows 7 64. I just setup windows xp mode, and was able to load it with the xp drivers and an old image program to do the scanning. However when i try opening the program seamlessly, it opens with the usb connection to the scanner disabled, likewise i've had to manually activate the scanner in xp mode every time. Is there a way to change the default usb settings in xp mode so it can automatically claim that usb device every time it opens, including seamlessly?

Speed Of Accessing A Network Server

I have a macbook. It is running os x, and windows xp and windows 7 on the same machine so i feel this is a good comparison. I have an in home wireless network through a usrobotics router. Attached to that router is a 500gb little file server. It's formatted fat32 and it contains many gbs of music. Anything attached to the router uses cat6 ethernet cables. When i attempt to access this server with win7 it can take over 1/2 an hour for it to list the contents.

When i attempt to access this server with win xp it can take only a few minutes. Os x grabs the data in only a few seconds. My questions:1)is there something in win 7 i should be tweaking to get it to access the data faster?2) is there a better way to setup the server for win 7?3) anything else you might think of.

Accessing Network Executable As Administrator Problem

I'm having a bit of a problem with accessing some stuff on our network. We have a network share full of installs for different programs that we use. There's only three groups listed in the security permissions that have access to the folder and all three have full control. I double-checked in ad and verified that i'm a member of all three groups including domain admins.

The problem is that while i'm able to browse the folders, create and delete stuff, whenever i try to run one of the installs, i get:

"You do not have permission to access \serverfolderinstall.exe"

None of my co-workers get this error and can run the installs fine. I used to be able to run the installs, but recently we moved the folder to a server running server 2008 and we all upgraded to windows 7 enterprise. We're all baffled as to what's going on.

Accessing Messages Imported In Live Mail

I am migrating from outlook express 6 (oe6) to windows live mail (wlm). So i changed the location of store in oe6 and imported the folders in wlm. It seemed to import them ok. But i can't access the messages in wlm? I even looked in "imported folder" under "storage folders" but the mail messages are not there.

I tried another thing. I changed the store location in wlm. It gave a message that it is copying 17k messages (which is about what i had in all the folders i had imported) into the new location, so i know they are there.

(1) how do i access those messages in wlm?
(2) i only see edb and some other files in the wlm store location but not the neatly organized folders that i imported from oe6?

Xp Mode - Issue Accessing Hard Drive With Files

So i've had windows 7 for awhile now. This was not a problem before. My harddrive recently crashed so i got a new c drive and re-installed windows 7 all is well except my windows xp mode. Before when i run xp mode i can see both my c and e (slave drive) and access all my files. Now i open windows xp mode and its has access to nothing. This was not an issue before. I can install programs via usb, but i need to access files from my slave drive to use within windows xp mode. So having the programs are kinda pointless cause i can't do anything in them. I have no clue why this is an issue it worked perfectly fine before.
