    BCD Corruption (BSOD related)

    Gator no expert but what you are saying id it is asking for an operating system to boot from so forgive my curiosity but is this a dual boot machine?? Never a fan of either Vista or 8 but is this an upgrade too? as I am also not a fan of that option. If the install was a clean install why not...

    Start Menu - Restore in Windows 8

    Hum have tried both and much of a muchness except one costs the other not. Classic Shell does ok for me when I am using 8 which isn't very often the changing of the start button icon is the only fiddley bit I don't like having to do as I still prefer the 7 flag one and getting one to fit.

    Secure Boot - Confirm Enabled or Disabled in Windows 8

    Ok Shawn now I know the machine has EUFI but I don't know without a quick check - what the seller who installed the 7 on this machine actually set in the BIOS as I am reasonably familiar with the EUFI but this APTIO is not much like the Asus desktop I have with EUFI. Now I just have to look up...

    Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7

    Oh dear I wished I had known about this tutorial when I bought my new laptop with 8 on it as the resulting time consuming, irritating problems including the activation and verification issues I had with the seller to install 7 instead could have been so avoided:(

    Solved MSE on 8

    Am tidying up a friends computer and she wanted the Norton taken off and something free put on. Now I downloaded MSE and when I went to install it gave me a message that it wasn't needed because the Windows Defender was covering the machine. I have not come across this before and am wondering if...

    CHKDSK baulking

    Hello and thanks Mike after four attempts it finally has done a straight chkdsk. Now it is down to finding why the machine is going so slowly, and it is not obviously down to some disk problems - well at least I don't think it is because the sfc came back ok as well.

    CHKDSK baulking

    The laptop has been getting a tad slow just lately with downloads and even clicking on forum links and the post area taking a while to load up. Now I have tried running most of the usual malwares scans Kaspersky, MBAM, SAS and ADW a sfc and then I tried a chkdsk with and without the / f and /r...

    Solved Going mad Browse studio Malware ?

    Ah well I got the 7 running now and my older Toshiba has the 8.1 on it (and it has an SSD) and now the Asus is running at close to the speed of sound ;) so I am going to leave it as is. Asus I suppose really doesn't have that much say over what the stores put in as drives as they did have...

    Solved Going mad Browse studio Malware ?

    Well I got it removed and I think it was ADW but not 100% sure. In any case I have flipped in a SSD and an OEM 7 after configuring the BIOS and the machine runs like a cat with its' tail on fire. What I don't get is the other machines (one laptop and one desktop) with 8.1 didn't have all the...

    Solved Going mad Browse studio Malware ?

    Well I guess you are right Mike but my other two 8.1 machine's never had the problems this 8.1 set up had and I certainly have not seen so much included rubbish on an install. Mind you it could have ben the original installers method I don't know but I still prefer the clean layout of 7 although...

    Solved Going mad Browse studio Malware ?

    Tried it Wolfgang no go:( Have tried all but the Kaspersky rescue disk or just do the install of 7 onto the SSD I suppose. I even found this Uninstall Browse Studio Extension (Remove Browse Studio Malware) and thought I could do it from the registry but it isn't listed.
