    Solved Is Intel embedded GPU the same as a graphics card?

    SOLVED: It's the same thing on every forum of the Internet. There are so many times I've asked a sincere question, and everybody considers it answered, but there's no actual answer. So I finally found decent data on this question. When games list minimum system requirements, they will put a...

    Win 8.1 clean install

    Will the installer recognize if the drive is completely blank with no NTFS or any sort of file system?

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    Ya thanks. I've seen it happen in Windows. Like in 2010, I installed Allods, and it wouldn't work until I re-enabled Windows Firewall in Services.

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    Needless to say, this case is SOLVED. CONCLUSION A. To avoid this problem: do not disable Windows Firewall in Services. Even if 3rd party firewall is installed. Windows Firewall being disabled in Services is what causes this whole problem of WinRT apps not functioning in newly created User...

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    So Jesus fixed it. I didn't even do anything. All I did was post that jacked-up image in the previous post. I even tried restarting a few times, and still got that same thing. So I quit. So after quitting, it just decides to work. After restarting multiple times, I move on with my life...

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    But then there's still the whole problem of why the hell did my screen just turn off when restarting explorer.exe process?

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    I did the #5 - restart explorer, it was taking forever, then the screen went blank (turned off). Now the tablet won't turn back on. I'm just going to hold down the power button to shut it off. If this didn't work, I'm probably going to just delete this fourth account that was created with the...

    IE11 Update Error KB2962872 Windows 8.1

    OK thank you very much. This helps a ton because at least we now know what's causing it. I consider this a big step towards a solution. It makes alot of sense because I ran this update with OA installed as well. I had Windows Firewall off as well as disabled in services. However, I did exit OA...

    Can't Disable Defender

    It doesn't matter. Windows Firewall will let anything from MS through no matter what you do. Which is why it's important to always use a third party Firewall that asks you about every single thing communicating with the network if you want to allow/block once or always. That's why Online Armor...

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    I created a 4th account using an MSA instead of creating it as a local account. And it still has the same problem as the third account. Like I said, whether the account is created with an MSA or if an account was created as a local user, and signed into a MSA. It's the same extremely frustrating...

    Can't Disable Defender

    OK. I've been thinking about getting rid of Avast. But I need a firewall to block applications from accessing the internet. Like MS Word or any Adobe will try to access the internet for everything even though I'm doing a completely offline project. If I'm writing a grocery list in Word or...

    Solved Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

    I have checked everywhere online, and I haven't found a single explanation for this. I have 3 user accounts. 1. Administrator 2. initial user 3. new user So the initial user is the one you are forced to create when first setting up Windows 8.1. It's a local user meaning that I set it up...

    How do you move icons from Start to Desktop?

    Wow OK thanks. Because the folders I found didn't have all the shortcuts. That will work, but that's an over complicated way of doing things. How do you fix it so you can just drag and create shortcuts from whatever is in your main App menu under the start menu? Because that area is where all of...
