  1. Freaking windows 10 has frozen. I can login into my Computer that’s it. After that it stays blank, nothing on the bottom just blank. Tried restarting without closing it down properly because I can’t. This usually puts it into repair mode after 2 times but of course it is not working. Just goes back to normal (blank screen). There is a security app that pops up. But only the top link appears then I get the black background with . Can anybody help me. I have pictures on my phone

  2. Hardware Fail,more than liekly windows deativated, that is what my laptop did, have fune… been their done that

  3. look millions own pcs etc like me not all are pc savvy so this to you may be easy but for me no..i am trying to load my mem stick with music from my verbatim drive but groove says no…and its so slow . i want to listen to 1 track from my external NO …groove takes over ..its useless to me. was happy with media player now this is forced on us..

  4. start powershell start-process cmd -verb RunAs
    or
    start powershell start-process powershell -verb RunAs

  5. in cmd or in start>type THE WORD run and ENTER. PRO TIP TYPING CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER IN THE START MUNU AFTER YOU TYPE WHAT YOU WANT TO RUN EX: START AND THEN TYPE CMD, KEY COMBO CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

  6. As much as I check the install location and retype it, Powershell says the location cannot be found.

  7. Hold down SHIFT+CTRL+ALT as you press enter to launch PowerShell. This will initiate the elevated permissions process as well. No need for context menus or editing Properties. Works in Windows 10, unsure about previous Windows versions.

  8. This happened to me once and my usual trick is to press the Windows Logo+R key to launch Windows’ Run dialog. Now type explorer, press enter and this should launch the taskbar process. Of course you’ll then have to Google for Windows repair options to try and determine what’s preventing normal launching. You’ll likely see search results that require you to use the SFC or the DISM command. These are the tools I usually use to diagnose and repair Windows system problems.

  9. How about dis, launching powershell admin from within powershell:
    Start-Process powershell -Verb runAs
