    Solved Volume shadow copy error

    Haha...I do and have always had a password on both. This is why all has been extremely frustrating. I don't know how it's happening. I'm trying to learn my computer bit by bit, piece by piece, all by taking it apart and piecing it back together. Lessons learned. But yes, it is like a spy novel I...

    Device Associations and 386 virtual device driver

    Hello everyone, I was setting default to file extensions and came across a few in which I have no idea what they are for. I've googled them and all I find is 'malware' removal, and what the extension is, which I know that part, but I want to know what it's FOR. .386 Virtual Device Driver .a A...

    Attempt to disable Hyper V...access denied

    I'm reading about the whole Hyper V and all, in which I don't need, don't use or have any use for. I'm running a Dell laptop with Win 8.1, using wi-fi and don't need any other OS on my computer. However, when I followed the instructions on disabling/enabling, I get access denied via command...

    Solved Volume shadow copy error

    Haha, Okay, thanks. ....I literally have been hiding both every time I leave the room, and being very discreet about it. I am even carrying my USB sticks in my pocket. I'm married to Mr. HJ so it's not that simple. He won't admit that he's doing this but I know he is. When my iPhone4 all of a...

    Solved Volume shadow copy error

    I'm telling you, I know it sounds strange....I read where if someone actually can get into your phone, they can install silent programs that do not show up on the desktop (of the phone). AND, he mentioned something the other day, his words were..."your in the cloud!"....I'm telling you he has...

    BitLocker Recovery Key - Back Up in Windows 8

    Hi there.... I am about to give up on this laptop and just go with it.....seriously. I'm tired of trying to secure things and finding myself stuck. I have a USB stick with my backup files/image in which I encrypted through Bitlocker. I have the passwords, but NOT the key. I saved the keys to...

    Registry Values fEnableRTS and DTR, what do they do?

    I'm still trying to piece together this mystery laptop of mine and am in the registry looking around. (I haven't changed anything yet, don't worry)..:) I'm wondering what these registry keys/values mean and what their settings SHOULD be? I'm the ONLY user ...

    Solved BIOS settings/Network, and domain

    Hi, and thanks. Yes, I've read about the Team Viewer, but I don't think I've seen that anywhere on my system and I certainly didn't download it. But if someone else is operating it....Upon doing the clean install, i went into programs (install/uninstall) and the 'only' thing installed was an...

    Solved BIOS settings/Network, and domain

    Okay....I didn't even bother backing up any data from documents/pictures because I really wanted nothing left from that drive at all. No traces. I managed to wipe the drives, reinstalled on ONE unallocated drive, it installed perfectly. However, I think I goofed because upon installing I got...

    Secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI

    Okay, much thanks. I went in and actually did that 'before' encrypting and then continued to encrypt. So I actually encrypted while it was on, but all security boot keys were disabled.....is this going to cause security issues nowo ? Do I need to go back, disable and delete, and re-encrypt?

    Is it possible for a laptop's network indicator to show 'Not Connected, Connections are Available', but upon opening IE, I have full blown internet service? Just wondering how this can be.....and where I should check to see where the connection is actually coming from? Thanks...

    UEFI option instead of Bios boot

    Okay, I chose the locall account. I set up Bitlocker on my USB sticks I use for backup. NOW, I was connected to the internet for maybe ten minutes total. As i was using Bitlocker on the USB, my computer kind of flashed on/off (not actually off, but just flashed), and I took a peek in my folders...

    How did you setup your Win 8 install?

    Ahh, okay. Got it. Thanks for summing that up. That makes sense and helps me understand a bit more. I wasn't by looking at my UEFI if there was somehow another something attached.....But I think I got it now. :)

    Secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI

    Okay... I have successfully reinstalled a fresh, nice and new Win 8.1 on laptop. All looks good. Strong password. I encrypted (using Bitlocker) my USB in which I used to reinstall. Now, I want to use the Bitlocker on my C drive. But it looks as if you have to be the Admin, in which I am (I...
