  1. 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?
  2. Possible Windows 7 No Update Problem Again. I say possible, because I want to make sure before I go and look at the other Update problem thread here. As I said, this is now the 2nd time ( if there is a problem ) I've had this problem this year. I had it a few months back, & used something like Mr Fix It for Updates & it fixed the problem. But before I go look at the other thread about this subject here, I want to know for sure I have it again. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. And was wondering what is the latest/last update others have had to their computers? Mine is showing 8/17 as my last update, and I usually start worrying once it gets to a week or 10 days without one. Never mind 13 days now? So if anyone has a date, more recent then this, please leave a message here for me.
  3. Hello friends, I am having an issue and have tried a variety of fixes with no luck, so I am turning to the Internet. I have tried searching forums for resolutions to my issue, but found only solutions I have already tried or got "it just started working again". I have a beautiful rig I built myself. The desktop is my baby. I've had it for two years now and have yet to have an issue with it. On Wednesday I began to have connectivity issues late at night in the middle of a game with friends. The Internet dropped and would only return intermittently for several seconds before dropping again. I turned off the computer and called it a night, under the assumption the issue was with the router. It has acted this way before and last time it was an issue with a downed wire (though we have switched providers since then). Today I turned on my machine and it failed to connect to the Internet. Upon further exploration, I found that the computer was able to identify our home network, but when I attempted to connect it failed. The issue seems to be between the desktop and the router. All other devices in the household have access to the Internet, including two pc laptops, an Xbox one, and an iPod. Troubleshooting told me it was unable to identify the issue. I reset the router and the computer and tried again without success. I reset the connection without any luck. I turned off the firewall and tried to connect. I made a guest account on the desktop and tried to connect. I signed in to the router settings and checked there were no blocks on my machine (I would not put it past the other members of the household to put some sort of restrictions on my machine while fumbling around in the router settings). I pinged my machine with the router and got nothing back. When I viewed my hardware, the machine said it detected the wireless card and that it was working. The card has a reset button on the back I pressed. Connecting directly to the router via a cable is not an option, as the router and the desktop are on entirely different sides of the house. Signal strength has never been an issue despite this, and neither the router nor the desktop has been moved in the past week. The computer sees the connection and tells me a connection is available. When I try to connect to our network, it gives me an error. I have not made any changes what so ever to my system in the past week. I have not installed or uninstalled any software or hardware of changed any settings. I'm at my wit's end. I'm not entirely computer illiterate, so it is frustrating to hit such a wall. I just want to play games with my friend. Is it possible the wireless card simply failed? It still appears to be working blinking-light and connection-detection wise. Would you have any suggestions on what to try next? Thanks!
  4. Would someone kindly help me with this error message please. When the PC has completed the start-up sequence there remains an error message on the screen. It has the usual white cross in a red roundel....................... There was a problem starting. C:UsersRobertAppDataLocalConduitBackgroundContainerBackgroundContainer.dll..............This started 4/5 days ago for no apparent reason Once I click on 'OK' the error box disappears and the PC runs normally, seemingly without problems but it would be nice not to see the error message at all. Thank you and have a nice day.
