    Windows 10 Exception Processing Message

    There is a lot wrong now - windows update will not update - error message shows, and other things are failing, I recently got a message that my windows 10 was illegal and I needed to buy a copy, in spite of having the 16 digit code and original windows 7 disc. I have a Macrium image from last...

    Windows 10 Exception Processing Message

    Thank you. I have attempted to run the module you suggested but got the message "specified module could not be found c:\windows\logs\DISM\dism.log". I did a scan with malwarebytes and that came up clear - the antivirus is Windows Defender - I did not disable it. I have downloaded the log file as...

    Windows 10 Message invalid Windows 10 product key

    Thank you all for your help - nothing works and I keep going round in circles. Something is corrupt but as the only effect of the non-activation is the corruption of my name on the boot screen I will just live with it. A new computer is not on at 95.

    Windows 10 Message invalid Windows 10 product key

    It is the Home edition. How do I do a phone reactivation. I looked on line and found the following: Free upgrade to Windows 10 If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you should have a digital license instead of a product key. Where do I find the digital licence?

    Windows 10 Message invalid Windows 10 product key

    No - it was Windows 7 and now Windows 10, with all the feature updates. It has been "refreshed" several times, keeping files and programs.

    Windows 10 Message invalid Windows 10 product key

    Thank you. The desktop is 12 years old; the only upgrading has been to replace the hard drive with an SSD, double the RAM to 8GB and fit a quad processor in the motherboard in place of the existing twin – and that was several years ago. The name in the path after “users” remains as it was, and...

    Windows 10 Message invalid Windows 10 product key

    I need to change a corrupted setting in personalisation, but get the message that I need to activate Windows first. My computer started as Windows 7 and was upgraded to Windows 10 using the upgrade option available at the time. I have a Windows 7 product key and a product key for Windows 10...

    Windows 10 Preventing re-installation of corrupting feature update

    The latest feature update to Windows 10, version 21H2, KB4023057, installed on ‎25/07/2022 and took five and a half hours. It messed up my computer in many ways so I reverted to the pre latest feature update (under Settings/Recovery). This feature update is poised to install once more, and...

    Windows 10 Explorer on taskbar

    The latest update has messed up my computer in many ways so I reverted to the pre latest feature update. It took five and a half hours but now works again. I cannot display a "send to" but I can click on Doccuments (there is a Documents as well) and this opens in the desired Documents/Documents...

    Windows 10 Explorer on taskbar

    Thank you for your reply. The first method works but the second method would be quicker, however, I cannot fond a way of creating a shortcut - it does not seem available no matter what I right click

    Windows 10 Explorer on taskbar

    The latest feature update has just been installed and it has messed up my desktop; I have got things back to normal except for the Explorer icon on the taskbar. Previously I had set it - many years ago - to open with Documents/Documents, but now it opens with the Quick Access screen instead, and...

    Windows 10 ODBC32.dll problem

    I know that a full re-install would be the solution and I will have to do it. I have checked and have 56 programs to re-install, although they do not need to be done all at once, and then find drivers for the added video card etc. Would it solve all problems - for instance I have to run chkdsk...

    Windows 10 ODBC32.dll problem

    The computer is eleven years old, as is the laptop (although both have been upgraded with an SSD and extra Ram) - the company is no longer in business. I ran sfc /scannow and no problems were found, I also tried a refresh, keeping apps and files, but after over four hours the refresh failed and...

    I have checked the site and have three versions to choose from viz: ARM64, X86, X64. I am running Windows 10 ver 21h2 (the latest) - I think I should choose ver X64 but would like confirmation

    Windows 10 ODBC32.dll problem

    Further information. I tried to open a PDF on my laptop and it opened in Chrome, I then made Foxit the default and tried again but then I could not access any of my files - they displated but when I tried to open any the message was that the location had changed. I did a system restore but still...
