    The Group Policy Client service failed to start error

    The system log shows The Group Policy Client service failed to start due to the following error: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. That tells me nothing. I can use the computer because I am the administrator, I can access files, programs, etc...

    Alt key codes in Windows 8

    Just wanted to let you all know I figured it out. Finally. It turns out there was software called Multiview, that allowed control of multiple monitors (I only have one) that was installed with the new Samsung monitor I bought. It had taken control of the alt key function. I found it...

    Alt key codes in Windows 8

    I think you misunderstood. I'm in this textbox. I hit alt-0176 and I'm brought to a totally new page, within this tab, with a degree symbol in the Google search box :( I actually use Clipmate, and have for many years. I've got text characters stored in there. I'll end up using them, but...

    Alt key codes in Windows 8

    The key above the 7 on my keyboard is a Clear key. This is not a typical keyboard, obviously, even though it's the basic keyboard Dell supplied me when I purchased this Inspiron 660 desktop. Please understand I am no newbie to computers, Windows, or understanding technology (and yes, I have...

    Alt key codes in Windows 8

    The interesting thing here is I don't have a Num Lock key on this keyboard. The keypad works, but you can't turn it on or off. I guess I'll have to get a different keyboard, it's what came with the computer.

    Alt key codes in Windows 8

    I'm on a new Dell that came with Windows 8 preinstalled, so this isn't an upgrade. I can't use the alt key to get the old symbol/codes. I always have typed 'alt-0176 on the keypad to get the degree symbol - it doesn't work anymore. Can anyone help me figure out what combo works now? When I...
