    Strange problem regarding a program not opening/loading.


    I have two Windows 10 os boots for different uses and need the program to open/work on windows 10 1 as windows 10 2 is used for other things.


    C: windows 10 1 - gaming/media
    D: windows 10 2 - work related.


    Ive installed a game onto windows 10 1 and when i try to open " settings " which is an application file... it doesnt open or load.


    I confirm this by looking in task manager nothing... i even kept an eye on task manager to see whats happening when i double click and i see " windows problem reporting" pop up for a split second and then disappears.


    But thats it nothing else, i've tried compatibility, safe mode, clean boot, dism, sfc, reinstalling game...everything i can think of outside of doing a fresh windows install or system restore.

    I even installed the game on Windows 10 2 just to see its not an issue with the game and it opened first time with no issues.


    So the issue is not the game files its a setting on my Windows 10 1 Os.


    Any ideas what i can do to resolve this to avoid a clean install/system restore ?


    thanks

    "Open With" context Menu slow to load


    Hi all,

    so when i right click on the file and point to the "open with" menu, it should show the list of programs that the file could be opened. Every time after a restart the "open with" menu would take like 3 seconds to load, and after that first load, it would show the list right away. This not only happens when i restart my pc, but also when I haven't opened a file with the "open with" menu for like 1 or 2 hours and it will lag for like 3 seconds again for it to show the list of programs that it could be opened with.

    I've already tried programs like Autoruns, ShellExView and disabling those context menu would now help either. Also, I deleted the unnecessary programs from the open with list through the registry already and it still doesn't help.

    Any Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Program opening problem

    I am a complete novice with computers and have a great difficulty in opening programs! I download the program , go through the exe and get the program into the computer but each time I try to open it I seem to get the exe again and a window saying " do you wish to remove the program before loading new?" !!! Any suggestions as to what I am doing incorrectly?

    Thank you

    Strange problem regarding a program not opening/loading.

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Strange problem regarding a program not opening/loading. :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
