  1. My computer acts like it is in S mode, but the system tells me its running Windows 11 Home.


    I believe this all started around the time I created a new Microsoft account on this computer or when i updated to windows 11.My computer denies me access to downloading outside of the Microsoft store. So it makes me think that i am in S mode. But every time I go to turn off s mode via the Microsoft store, it gives me the message "You are unable to switch out of S Mode on this version of Microsoft Store. See the links below for more information on how to update Microsoft Store. This device is not running S mode." When i do try to download something it gives me the message "The app you're tryin

  2. Computer Acts Like Safe Mode

    Thanks for the instruction. After following your suggestions, completed actions, rebooted, but nothing changed. All computer action elongated, fonts reduced, screens still looks like running in safe mode, but with normal speed, etc. Any other helpful
    suggestions appreciated.

  3. New FF - passwords

    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM

    ACT Pro 2013 will not open in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    The most likely causes on a standalone are a damaged or invalid .pad file or SQL is not running, or is damaged.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if the issue persists.


      • Click your Windows Start button, choose Run and type in actdiag.


      • When ACT! Diagnostics comes up, click Databases, the Database List.


      • Locate your database in the list, right-click on it and select Detach. Make sure you know the filepath to your database before detaching it.


      • When the database has been detached, open My Computer (or Windows Explorer) and browse to the location of your database.


      • Locate the .PAD file for your database [database name].pad and delete it.


      • Reopen ACT!...you will get a message that the last database opened cannot found, then will be taken to the Open Database dialog box.


      • At the bottom of this box, change the Files of Type to .adf, browse to the location of your database and double-click on the .adf file for your database.


      • You will get a message that ACT! will verify your database, click OK and ACT will reattach your database to SQL and create a new .pad file.

      • Hope this helps.
