  1. When I try to open Settings, it opens then crashes


    It's been like this for a while now. I was hoping I could get an official Microsoft solution for this because the new account method and the PowerShell/Command Prompt method aren't working. Does anyone have a useful fix?

    :)

    Hearthstone open beta

    ... is now open!

    No wait, that's not the word.

    The word is ASS.

    Step 1. Download the client installer.

    Step 2. The installer connects to the server, or at least tries to, overnight during which it just stops several times.

    Step 3. Realize the installer is for the Battle.net unified launcher, and not Hearthstone as such.

    Step 4. Install the Battle.net unified launcher. This may take a few hours, even after it's been downloaded as such, it's still just slow.

    Step 4. Install Hearthstone. Wait for the app to crash a couple of times, wait for it to verify various stuff, then wait for the download to start.

    Step 5. Wait for the download to finish. It is pretty quick actually, unless it just crashes.

    Step 6. ASS

    And no, I still have no compassion for the people bitching about EA servers.

    QuickBooks crash while opening data file

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As you have mentioned that after Windows and QuickBooks update whenever you open a data file in QuickBooks, it crashes. We would like to know if any other programs are crashing apart from QuickBooks.



    I suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned below:



    Method 1: Repair QuickBooks



    I suggest you to try repairing QuickBooks and then open data file in it. Please follow the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Look for QuickBooks application from the list, right click on it and select
      Repair.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the repair process.


    If repairing QuickBooks didn’t fix the issue, please refer Method 2.



    Method 2: Open Sample data file



    You can try opening a Sample data file in QuickBooks and check if QuickBooks crash. If QuickBooks didn’t crash while opening Sample data file, I suspect that the data file that you are trying to open is causing the crash. In this case, I suggest you
    to contact the
    QuickBooks support
    team.



    Regards,

    When I try to open Settings, it opens then crashes

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
