    Use disk drive in VMware Workstation

    Greetings, I recently purchased an old game which I sued to play, and it broke my Windows 8 laptop. Don't ask how, I think it was something to do with the boot configuration when I installed it, as the computer needed to restart to complete the installation. I want to play this game so I got an...

    Windows couldn't connect to the group policy service

    Ok, so I found a slightly different registry solution as the above does not work. See: All About Boats... So it goes...: Group Policy Client Services Error Windows 8.1 [FIXED] The video there shows you to do this. At first, everything was fine for me, other than the parameters had a capital I...

    Windows couldn't connect to the group policy service

    So I've just tried to do the registry trick and it hasn't done a thing. I've also uninstalled Chrome (had to do it manually) and this hasn't done anything either. I then ran another sfc scan, and that still hasn't done anything. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do?

    Windows couldn't connect to the group policy service

    No idea how this happened. Just turned my Computer off, started it yesterday, and got this error. Turned it off several more times and back on again and I'm still getting it. Had a look around and found a few potential solutions. I tried an sfc/ scannow but that hasn't done a thing to fix it...

    Unable to delete file - access denied

    Just finished an sfc /scannow command too. It says it found corrupt files but couldn't repair some of them. I've attached the CBS log it produced, but I can't find any mention of the issue I'm having in the log file. I've tried the chkdsk a few more times and tried deleting the folder a few...

    Unable to delete file - access denied

    Ok, a fair response from that. I ran the chkdsk command on reboot and it allowed me to delete one of the logs folder (which I believe was the duplicated one) and all the content inside. When I deleted the folder, all the content was deleted from the original folder though the folder itself...

    Unable to delete file - access denied

    Hi all, Thanks for replying, and sorry for my slow reply back in return. I haven't yet been able to remove the folder(s) and files inside them (they hold identical content). I've initiated a scan (just what MilesAhead recommended, see...

    Unable to delete file - access denied

    As the title states, I'm unable to delete two files on my computer (inside the folder 'logs' in the screenshot below), as I receive access denied errors. I've tried take ownership, through command prompt (as an administrator), Malware Bytes' File Assassin, and all of them say that I can't even...

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    This is the error attached to the message. The video driver problem has been happening all along, it's just got more common in the last week or so. I thought before it was a case of installing drivers which was why I never mentioned it. The wireless problem only started in the last few weeks...

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    Okay, two more noticeable problems. First of all, often randomly, my screen will freeze for a second, and then recover. A few seconds later from the taskbar I'll get a balloon notification saying that the display driver stopped responding and recovered. All attempts to get to the source of the...

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    That's why I outsmarted them - and disabled ALL update availability on my machine ;)

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    I found a folder called CareCenter from C:/oem, which appears to be the problem as I found a load of debug logs from every time approximately it appears on the screen. I found the folder, it's called DriverSetupUtility, it might be from when I auto-detected the product, who knows. I certainly...

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    So basically .... it's a load of rubbish that I don't need. No idea at all how this got on. I can't find this at all in the Control Panel. I've checked the program files folders that brooksndun gave above, and neither even exist. Found nothing in program data or program files (x86) either. I...

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    Well I tried to install both the touchpad drivers you gave on page 2, restarted my computer and nothing changed. All I can say is - at least the original problem is solved. It's certainly a shame - but at least I'm not the only one. The only problem now is the CMD window that keeps appearing...

    Unable to access internet after installing Windows 8

    Yeah - I don't think I'm going to be able to get the touchpad working then .... Also though - any idea what I can do about this popup that keeps appearing on my screen? It comes on every few hours and it's exceptionally annoying. If I'm in a full-screen application, it will minimise until the...
