    PC works fine but wouldn't do a system restore


    Hi my PC works fine but wouldn't do a system restore.tried DISM tools but fails at initiatilisation. Ran chkdsk overnight no problems, sfc no problems. Last resort used media creation tool as per here. It went right though fine but then said something happened and didn't install. PC boots up fine,runs all programs fine. At a complete loss now.
    any help much appreciated.

    :)

    PC Suite works fine, but now digital camera and scanner don't

    Just an update...

    I finally got system restore to work by starting it from safe mode (press F8 while booting), but still had the same problem.

    But I did find that if you open Device manager and right-click the USB device that is currently working (like the scanner) and disable it (don't reboot), then the other device (camera) will start working.

    Maybe this info will help someone else.

  3. Outlook.com account works fine on PC but cannot authenticate on Win phone 8

    Hello uppityoz,

    Thank you for posting in the Windows phone forum!



    If you downloaded the Authentication app to your phone, you need to link it to your Microsoft Account via a QR code. This QR code is created when tyou set up the 2FA on your Microsoft Account, and is displayed on your Microsoft Account.



    You also need to make sure you have a working alternative email address. because if you don't want to use the authentication app on the phone the 2FA code is sent to the alternative email address.

    If you uninstall the authentication app from your phone, the link with your account is broken.



    But you will still be prompted for an authentication code when you try to log into an MS site. If you can't remember your alternative email details then you won't be able to get a code there either. Thus any change you make, you will have to wait 30 days.



    So, to avoid this you need to log onto your MS account first, and remove 2FA , check your alternative email address and then remove the app from the phone.



    There is an FAQ on the Security Info part of the Microosft Account.

    Have a nice day!

    Hello Barin, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    You might see if doing the repair install with an ISO or USB may work better.

    That doesn't indicate any issues with the hard drive itself.

    I'd give the ISO or USB a try to see if it may be able to successfully finish a repair install if you like. Be sure to use the same edition, language, and 64-bit that you currently have installed.

    Does it give you any more details than that?

    If you have a 3rd party AV program installed, then temporarily disable or uninstall it until the repair install is done.

    Otherwise, you may need to refresh Windows instead.

    Refresh Windows 10

    Norton's self protection setting affects system restore. If you have another AV software they also may have a self protection module.
