  2. Hi Would Running system file Checker help sfc /scannow , note space between c an / , may Help , worth a try ok .. Philip..
  3. autocheck autochk *  is the correct value. If the dirty bit was the only problem, you can turn it off per microsofts instructions: https://support.microsoft.com/fi-fi/help/160963/chkntfs-exe-what-you-can-use-it-for Erasing of restore points is actually fairly easy. All you have to do is shut system restore off and they will all be gone when you turn it back on. Perhaps something in the process you went through did that. You might try downloading and running Windows Repair All-in-one. It isn't a repair install, but it will correct some of the important registry entries in windows.
  4. Ah work was getting the best of me for awhile and life in general. I think everyone knows how that goes. I only learned of CB passing maybe a couple weeks ago when I checked in and I became very inspired to fold again. It's good to see so many familiar people still around the Pitstop after all these years.
  5. I'm just guessing TBH about registry; but you may have changed something by booting to W10 from the USB - It doesn't have a live CD version like Linux does so somewhere it's installed something as you've stated you booted to the W10 desktop. Have a look if you have a "Windows.old" folder on your C drive: C:\Windows.old\Users\your_name If you have then I think you may somehow inadvertently installed W10 as an inplace upgrade.
  6. A full format and install of Windows 7 is what I'm trying to avoid, if possible. How would I know of any altered registry settings, please? And why did Windows 10 delete the existing restore points, is a question I'd really like to know, as I can't imagine any circumstances when that 'feature' (which I did NOT tell the Windows 10 installation to do) would be useful.
  7. Clean install of W7? I'm wondering if some registry entries have been altered?
  8. Apparently I've forgotten how to read english. That makes no sense to me. What are you trying to say?
  9. Last week
  10. Holy cow Tek, where you been hiding?!
  11. There is difference in Android Kitkat and Android Pie if you wants to save hundreds of dollars except the feature of Google Duplex that is about to launch in coming months.
  12. Reminds me of several other failed games based on the Serbia country. There are not enough players to play the games on this kind of topics.
  13. I would recommend Lord of The Rings Online which is a free to play Mass Online Game.
  14. Yeah, people have been liking Multiplayer mod of Call of Duty and also make sure to check out COD Emblems
  15. I would prefer to play CDO Ghost in multiplayer with Xbox Live Gold Subscription - Xbox Live Gold
  16. I will rather buy 1 or 2 games to record gameplay sesions and upload them to Youtube.
  17. Miss ya CB..... here to honor and pick up your slack.....😀.....God bless.
  18. I have a desktop PC running Windows 7, and no other OS, and it was working fine. And since I was going to go down to a friend's house to fix his non-booting Windows 10 PC, I copied Windows 10 from disc to a USB stick (via Rufus, a bootable USB stick creator program), and to test the Windows 10 USB stick was working, I booted up my Windows 7 desktop via the USB stick, got to the Windows 10 menu, and turned off the Windows 7 desktop. I did this because I thought that the Windows 10 installation USB wouldn't actually change anything on the PC until I told it to (which I wasn't going to do, of course, I just wanted to test that the USB stick booted). Anyway, the Windows 7 PC still works fine, i.e. online works, no viruses or malware, every program I've tried works, but whenever I boot it up, the Windows 7 PC ALWAYS runs CHKDSK at boot, then it tells me that CHKDSK can't check the C: drive, and tells me it's because of some previously installed software, and that I should use the system restore to go back to before the software was installed. You'd think it would tell me what software is actually causing the problem, just like you'd expect the Windows 10 disk to have NOT altered the contents on the hard drive, given that I did not tell it to do anything at all, but not. Oh, and all of my restore points have been removed. Googling the problem shows that it's not exactly uncommon, but mostly it's people who dual boot both Windows 7 and Windows 10, and the working solution there is to apparently turn off fast boot in Windows 10, but since I don't have Windows 10 on this desktop (and really really don't want it), then that's not an option for me. I can create new System Restore points (but of course there are none from before I booted the Windows 10 USB stick), but I can't stop CHKDSK from trying to run at boot up, and MUCH more importantly, I can't get CHKDSK to successfully scan the C: drive even when I deliberately tell it to in Windows, then of course it schedules CHKDSK for the next reboot, but on reboot CHKDSK just gives the same error as when it always tries on bootup without my telling it to. Using: fsutil dirty query c: says "Volume - C: is dirty" And via REGEDIT, at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager Then 'BootExecute' contains: autocheck autochk * Any ideas, please?
  19. Hello Patricia and Apologies for the trouble you're experiencing with PC Matic. If you'll open a trouble ticket with our help desk, we can get some more info from you to get this resolved as expediently as possible. You can open a trouble ticket at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ Tx
  20. I am getting an error code when I do a PC Matic scan. The eror code is: The program or feature"\??\C:\ Program Files (x86) \PCPitstop\PCMatic\Non RotatingMedia.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64 bit Windows compatible version is available.
