    Having a few unrelated issues


    I am having a few unrelated issues in that if I click on a mail link for the forum/s it will either go to the next tab from the mail one or open a completely new tab and there have been times when I have gone to close all tabs only to find there are still more open.

    The spellcheck is also all over the place just deleting what has been flagged leaving me to retype all over again and clicking on the spellcheck deletes the word or joining of words completely .

    There are other little things and it is slowly beginning to really irritate me

    Have run sfc and chkdsk with no improvement so any ideas please.

    :)

    I need some help with a few issues I've been having with Windows 10

    None of those seem to apply to my issues. My issues are not every single time I login either, they appear totally random.

    Most of the time when I press ctrl alt del and task manager is opened, task manager never allows me to end a task when an app stops working. Any app. If an app for whatever reason stops working and
    the computer doesn't respond I have to restart the computer to end and close the program.

  3. I need some help with a few issues I've been having with Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description your computer freezes after upgrading to Windows 10. The issue could be if the drivers are not updated or there is some system file corruption.

    As per the issue description, it seems that the issue can be caused due to any third party software conflict. Hence, let's try the following methods and check.

    Method 1: Start computer in safe mode and then perform clean boot.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode

    a. When you hit the power button in Windows 8.1 (through Charms Bar), hold down the
    Shift key when clicking the Restart button.

    b. The next screen will present you with three options. Click
    Troubleshoot.

    c. Next, hit
    Advanced options followed by Windows
    StartupSettings from the next screen.

    d. Your PC will now be rebooted to enable the advanced parameters, which include Safe Mode as well. Once it restarts, you’ll get nine options whereby the following commands apply:

    • F4 for Safe Mode
    • F5 for Safe Mode with Networking
    • F6 for Safe Mode with Command Prompt

    For more information you may refer to the article mentioned below.

    Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)

    Step 2: Perform Clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note:
    Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting

    Method 2

    I would suggest you to install all of the Windows updates and device drivers. For updating the drivers you may refer to the article mentioned below.

    How to: Install and Update drivers in Windows
    10


    If issue still persists, then install the drivers for Windows 8/8.1 from the manufacturer's website in compatibility mode and check if that works.

    Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-8/older-programs-compatible-version-windows

    Reference:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...5&v2h=win7tab1&v3h=winvistatab1&v4h=winxptab1

    Method 3

    There might be a chance that there is some system file corruption. So, I would suggest you to run
    SFC scan and see if it brings any difference.

    System file check is a utility built into the Operating System that will check for system file corruption. The sfc /scannow command (System File Check) scans the integrity of all protected operating system files and replaces incorrect,
    corrupted, changed, or damaged versions with the correct versions where possible.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows 8.

    • Press Windows key and
      X at the same time.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the context menu.
    • In the command prompt, type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.
    • Exit command prompt.

    For more information refer to this link:


    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en-us

    Method 4

    If issue persists try to create new user profile as an administrator and see if issue persists in new user profile. For creating new user profile you may refer to the steps provided below.


    • Press Windows key + R

    • Type control userpasswords2 and click OK

    • Click on add under users tab

    • Click the option, "Sign-in without a Microsoft account

    • Click on Local account

    • Choose a name for the account

    • Add password if you want to

    • Apply and click OK.

    For more information you may refer to the article mentioned below and see if it helps.

    Create a local user account in Windows 10

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

    Regards,
