    Slow starting PC

    If the hardware-related problems (apparently) disappeared, then yes, the rest may be a result of some OS problems. The most common approach in such case is to use the System Restore, because something may happened after the last OS update or simply after a poorly issued update of anti-malware...

    window 8.1 32bit os to 64bit os!

    If your USB drive with Windows 8.1 installation cannot start, try to check it on a different PC. If all is OK, you will see at least the welcome screen with language selection and some other choices, then you can simply quit without any changes and harm to that PC. If your USB drive works well...

    Slow starting PC

    Please understand that it's not easy to give you any reasonable advice because you mentioned too few symptoms of malfunction. And they apparently don't have any relation to installed OS and are a result of some hardware problems. From my practice in PC hardware, slowing of warm-up may occur due...

    Is there a turn on or off Wi-Fi command?

You can check the name on your machine and...

    Forum styles

    That's right. Clearing the cookies was intentional, I attempted to reproduce the behaviour of completely new browser session (or new unregistered user). Selected style should be stored in cookies for long enough time, but apparently it doesn't happen. Lifetime of the cookie which stores the...

    Forum styles

    I tried EF2018 and EF2020. They are memorised only if I am logged in, then all works well, I can close a browser (Google Chrome 85, no adblock is used on this forum) without logging out, start it again and the chosen forum style remains. However, if I log out, it doesn't remain. I don't quit...

    Forum styles

    I noticed a problem that the selected style isn't remained after a user closes the browser. After some search, I found the possible source of this problem: a cookie from www.eightforum.com, xf_style_id It includes a parameter "Content" which is linked to selected style: for example, for EF2018...

    Problems with DISM

    (My apologies that I answer again, even though my previous reply in other thread apparently wasn't very helpful) As I see from the log, you definitely have a problem with Servicing Stack (CBS): 2020-09-26 09:38:54, Info DISM DISM Package Manager: PID=3580 TID=10468 Error in...

    Downloading Windows Updates stuck at 0%

    I see the extracts from WU log, maybe you filtered out too many lines and omitted some warnings... Anyway, the error is linked to CBS call (component-based servicing stack), 0x80073712 (you can search for this error code). Something in the Servicing Stack doesn't works properly. The common...

    Downloading Windows Updates stuck at 0%

    Apparently you missed an option to look at the last lines of WindowsUpdate.log, they may give some info about failure... As for a link, well, it's about Windows 10 problems, but the list of update-related URLs is common. Anyway, let's assume that your network connection works well, at least...

    Downloading Windows Updates stuck at 0%

    Hello, desbest! If you have never updated Windows yet (after fresh installation), look at this thread: Win Updates runs for hours, finds nothing There are two links to update KB3138615 which needs to be installed manually, for x32 and x64 systems (in different posts). Otherwise, if you have...

    I see this, the previous palette restores if switch to EF2018 style. The more options, the better, thank you!

    Forum styles

    Hello, admins! I see that forum style has been noticeably changed during the past couple of days, including the style of user pictures, palette etc. Some people may heartily welcome these updates, while some others may not. Could it be possible to preserve the previous style(s) for more...

    Screen is fuzzy

    While I cannot help you right now (not a specialist in the GPU and screen problems), but if you attach a couple of screens, it may help other people. For example, a built-in screenshot of Control Panel > Display with its settings and the same photograph of your display using a mobile camera...

    Updates mangled Windows

    Hello! You may look at the recent discussion in this thread: lost among all updates in Win8.1. My own banlist is there too.

    Have 16GB - Bogging down when 1.5gb used.

    If you are concerned about (possible) password leaks and accounts compromising, I'd suggest to use these services: Identity Leak Checker and have i been pwned. They helped me in the past and can be counted safe themselves.

    Have 16GB - Bogging down when 1.5gb used.

    Apparently the situation with Windows Defender is better, but not the best. I can suppose why it may get out of control, there are two main reasons: it is in a permanent conflict with another anti-malware program or it continuously checks the state of one or more too active background processes...

    Have 16GB - Bogging down when 1.5gb used.

    As I see, you have some opened programs (maybe some of them work as background tasks, need to check start-up), but the most voracious is Windows Defender service. It's not normal, maybe you caught the moment of database update, but after that the used memory should be significantly less. For...

    Have 16GB - Bogging down when 1.5gb used.

    Look in the Task Manager (with all processes shown), which programs and processes are the most memory-hungry. It's not a normal situation you described, of course. Maybe you have a memory leak which needs to be fixed, e.g. by uninstalling one component and replacing it with another. For example...
