    when trying to remove orange arrow system is showing black


    I was reviewing the info to remove orange arrows. There was a link to download in order to remove it. I downloaded and restarted and now I get arrow and black screen. I don't know what to do. I get the following error the windows system 32 tries to come up and then shows windows cannot find a file. Doesn't let me type anything in. When I press ok it goes away and it's black screen.

    Hello Leaps, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Not 100% sure what you mean, but it sounds like you are talking about the help tips like below.

    Help Tips - Enable or Disable in Windows 8.1

    If you mean that your whole screen is blank with just the pointer, then it sounds like you may need to either restart explorer. You can do this by pressing the CTRL+SHIFT+ESC keys to open Task Manager, click on File (menu bar) and Run new task, type explorer, and click on OK.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    Yes that thread is what I mean. I downloaded the disable tips. I just tried the task manager and typed explorer. Nothing happened.

    Try a system restore using a restore point dated before what you tried before to undo it, then try the tutorial I posted above.
