Unknown Solution In Action Center


My action center keeps telling me that there's a solution for a problem it encountered. When i try to read the solution, it loads for a while, then it tells me that the solution could not be downloaded with missing internet connection being the most likely cause. This cause guess is obviously wrong because i am online. Yet, the action center only names the most likely cause and absolutely fails in further troubleshooting, something it was created for.

Anyway, can anyone tell me how where to get further information on the problem and solution?

Action Center Security

I was a windows xp user until my computer was destroyed by a trojan virus (that mimicked windows. )  This left me feeling a bit paranoid about downloads. Now i'm using a computer with windows 7 and am having a hard time understanding the security features. Ction center notified me that intel active management technology needs a driver for my chipset. It suggests that i download and install a driver from the dell inc. Website.

My virus protection program shows no threat, so i download the driver, but then my computer makes a click sound and it asks me if i want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to my computer. Why would windows suggest that i download something from an unknown publisher? And why do i get the same notice when i try to open my image editing program, which i installed directly from the program's original cd?If someone would help me understand this security feature, i would appreciate it!

Action Center False Issues

Currently my windows action center is showing my virus protection and firewall to be turned off which are both false. I run norton 2010 and it's working fine. When i open the action center and click "turn on now" it opens norton but doesn't remove the issue from the action center.

Everything is up to date and i didn't have this problem initially so i'm presuming it's an issue with a recent install. I installed adobe cs4 on a trial a couple of days ago but after a restart the problem wasn't there. When i turned my system on last night it appeared and i can't get resolve it.

Changing Action Of Media Center Button Of Keyboard

Changing the action of my "start windows media center" button of my keyboard - without drivers! I am using windows 7 on my htpc (home theater pc, if someone isn't familiar with the terminology :)) and i love it so far! However, there is one thing which i'm not in love width - and that's the windows media center.

My keyboard (deltaco tb-220) has a special button from which i can start the wmc, but i'd rather use xbmc (xbox media center). The problem is that there aren't any software from which i can change the function of the special keys!

So, my question is: does anyone know a way to change the "default" media center from wmc to something else? For example with htpc remote controls or keyboards like mine and similar? Perhaps through editing something in the registry?

Solution To Alt Tab Not Working

This is not a question but a solution that took me about a month to find.consistently found alt tab to change programs would not work, and when i hovered over the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, the postage stamp image of the application would flash on once then disappear. Sometimes i could just not get an open application to maximize. Usually use my hp laptop at a workstation but when using it in another location noticed the problem had disappeared.

Figured there was something about the workstation. Tried back at the workstation and through a process of trial and error found it was a logitech skype usb speaker phone. It is a fairly old model - maybe 2007 - which i got as a freebee when i purchased a pc. It doesn't seem to like windows 7. Unplugged it and there is no further problem.

Problem With Nvidia Graphics Driver - Solution Could Not Be Downloaded

I click on solve pc issues (the flag) and it says address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. I click it and it says "this solution could not be downloaded".

Most likely causes: your computer was unable to download the solution at this time. Check to make sure your computer is connected to the internet, and then try to download the solution again later.

I am connected to the internet, and windows update works, web browsing works etc. Why isn't it downloading the solution?

Must Be Administrator To Perform This Action

I've recently upgraded my vista to windows 7. Since i updated, i've been encountering multiple issues. My main issue is with administrator privileges. I am the only user on my computer, yet i cannot perform most tasks because "you need to be an administrator to do this". I first got this problem when trying to delete a folder in program files. I changed the owner in the properties, no difference. I moved the file out of program files, no difference. It just won't let me delete this folder.

Now theres 16 gigabytes sat on my desktop, un-deletable. My second problem is now windows live messenger. I cannot install it because im not an administrator. Please can you help, i thought windows 7 would be better but im starting to hate it.

Unknown / Unexplained Error

I recently have been having an issue of an error box popping up it gives no error code all it it also does not have the appearance of windows 7 looks more the gui from windows xp or even windows 95
Example: after clicking on camspace.exe i get an error box the window's label/name is "camspace.exe-no disk" and in the main body of the window there is a white x inside of a red circle next to that the error message reads " there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive" target drive is "deviceharddisk4dr10".

I post this because i could not find a similar case online and i know that windows always generates an error code for reference, so i am wondering if this is a more complex error not related to windows or if it is spyware/malware.

An Unknown Error Occurred While Printing

My pc started running like molasses earlier this week, and since i got that fixed, it can't print to anything. How can i fix this? I've been using win 7 rc (64-bit) on a new pc (asus m3n78 motherboard, quad-core amd phenom 9500 processor, 4gb pc6400 ddr2 800mhz memory) since mid-july. This is a stand-alone pc connected directly to a lexmark x6170 printer via usb2 cable.

There are no routers or networks involved (other than the internet connection via a dsl modem). However, my firewall (comodo internet security) has reported finding (this week) a local area network at 192. 168. 1. 1.

The pc had been running fine til last tuesday (10/6). Then it started running like it was full of molasses. It would run ok at start-up, but once i had more than 1 or 2 things running, every little action took several minutes to complete.

The action center showed 3 problems, including something indicating that "windows 7 is no longer working" and something else indicating a chipset problem. First, i hit the win7 issue, which thought i wasn't getting updates. (I was, and had gotten an update just a couple of days earlier. ) I ended up downloading an "optional" update having to do with "hd audio". Then i went thru the "chipset" issue and ended up getting several nvidia drivers updated or installed. (I don't remember what the 3rd issue was, but i went thru it as well. )

Since doing all that, the molasses problem is gone. But now, i cannot print to any print driver - either my lexmark x6170 printer or my nuance pdf print driver. (The lexmark is using the 64-bit vista driver from lexmark. )

The win7 printer troubleshooter doesn't find a problem with either one. When i try to print to either one from firefox, i get "an unknown error occurred while printing. " If i try to print from nuance pdf converter pro 5. 1, the print task just disappears. If i try from ms excel 2003, i get either "your file could not be printed due to an error on docucom pdf driver on ne03" or "your file could not be printed due to an error on lexmark x6100 series on ne04"

At one point i found another lexmark driver via the microsoft website, and tried installing it. I think its name was something like "lexmark 5600-6500 series". That driver installed to "lpt1", and printing to it failed as well. I then deleted both lexmark drivers last night, and let the pc find the printer and install a driver on its own today. It found the "lexmark x6100" driver, presumably from my hard disk.
