    Can't disable Virtual Machine Platform


    Hi,in the window "Windows features" "Turn Windows features on or off" I can't uncheck the Virtual Machine Platform.If I do so it loads and then tells me to restart the PC. I click on restart and it restarts two times telling me "we couldn't complete the features undoing changes" or something like that. And if I then check if it works the box is still checkt so it's turned on.Why can't I turn it off I tried with other features and it works there. Have tried many times already as well.

    :)

    BSOD when launching Virtual Machine

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate your effort on this. I understand how difficult it could be when the computer doesn’t work as it is supposed to, we will look into this for you. Please reply with the following details to assist you with the appropriate troubleshooting
    steps:



    • Which application are you using to create Virtual Machine?
    • Does the issue occur only when launching a Virtual Machine?
    • Have you reinstalled Windows on the computer?
    • What is the make and model of the computer?


    I have analyzed the dump files shared by you. Since the issue occurs when you launch Virtual Machine, I suggest you to try disabling the VMWare USB Arbitration Service and check if that helps. Please follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type services.msc and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Look for the VMWare USB Arbitration Service and double click on it to open
      Properties.
    4. Select Disabled from the drop down for
      Startup and Stop the service.
    5. Click on Apply and OK.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

  4. Can't disable Virtual Machine Platform

    Enabling Virtual Machine Platform feature causes screen to flicker post boot.

    Hi, I tried to get help on this issue
    here
    , but at that time I did not know what was causing the screen to flicker. Currently enabling Virtual Machine Platform causes my screen to flicker post-boot. The screen does not flicker when I disable the Virtual Machine Platform feature.
