I just started using Microsoft 2010 and in the Outlook tasks I have created recurring tasks. In the old XP version when I completed a recurring task, the completed task would move to the top of the list. Now, it just puts it below the original task. Is there a way to automatically move completed tasks to the top of the page?

I am using outlook 2003 with an exchange server. I use my task list as a todo list. When I mark something as complete I see it has a strike through. The next day I come to my computer and the item that I checked of and had a strike through is gone. Does any body know where this went? I would like to keep these items as a reminder for when I fill out my timesheet.

thanx

I have thousands of completed tasks in Outlook that are hidden from view. How can I delete them so they are removed? I want to save the disk space they take up.

Thanks,

Microsoft's website says to do it THIS way.

Is that what you were looking for?

Can anyone tell me why my Outlook 2007 send/recieve pop-up box shows strange numbers of tasks completed when i press send/receive ? Before finally showing 2 out of 2 tasks it will show 2 out of 3 or 4 out of 6 etc.

I only have one email account - very basic. I was wondering if this has something to do with the process of setting up Outlook initially when it creates a .pst file which i then deleted and replaced with my own .pst file from my previous computer.

I don't seem to have any problem receiving or sending mail otherwise. Should I just ignore this and disable the send/receive progress box ?

Bindip,

Welcome to TSG!

When the Outlook Send/Receive Progress window pops up, click the Details >> button.

You'll get a window like the image below (email ids redacted) which will give you a better idea of what's going on. As you can see, my Outlook checks 6 addresses. A Send and a Receive is done for each address, accounting for the 12 tasks.

Hi guys,

which is "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\",
then after system reboots, the Vista destop does not show up (totally black) until the task completes (in the notepad case, until you close notepad).

while I can see the explorer.exe process in the taskmanager, it seems to be blocked. However, if I kill explorer.exe and start it again in task manager, the desktop shows up immediatly.

I found this behaviour on all Vista editions,
does vista behaves in this way? if it does, is it documented?

A:RunOnce tasks in Vista must be completed before desktop is available?

Hello Kenny, and welcome to Vista Forums.

If you wanted Notepad to open at startup, then you would need to place it in the RUN key or in the Startup folder in the Start Menu instead. The RunOnce key is usually only used for actions, like Windows Updates, that need to finish running something only at the next startup.

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

I was able to create a subfolder in it and I'm successful in adding tasks to that subfolder, but not in the main Tasks folder.

When ever I try adding a task, I get the following message:
"Please save the task order by clicking Save Task Order on the Actions menu in the "Tasks" folder. The view must not be filtered or grouped for Save Task Order to be available. Could not coplete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid"

I've gone through every possible setting. I went as far as uninstalling and reinstalling Office and recreating the users Outlook profile on the PC.

In Outlook, you can assign a new owner of a task and send them the task notice. When that new owner sends a updated task progress report our original task doesn't get updated to the new completed %. Is this normal or should it update the original task that is still viewed by the originator.

Hi,

She has dozens of active tasks, at certain points; some of these tasks lose a chunk of the messages in the body disappear without any warning. I notice that when this happen, all the tasks that lost part of the original texts all have the same modification dates and the font/size get resetted to "arial, size 10" where she would have used a different font like times new roman.

Hi,

I have a issue with Outlook 2003 and the tasks. For some strange reason, active tasks notes are getting modified by itself and are missing data. For example: If I have notes in the tasks, sometimes it gets modified and a chunk of it disappears, sometimes in mid word or sentence. Sometimes this happens to one active tasks, but sometimes it also happens to a majority of active tasks (All the date all say it was all modified at the exact same time).

I have outlook 2003 and in the calendar screen I selected to also show a taskview. The taskview I have selected is to show all tasks that are up to 7 days out. It shows all tasks that have a due date not just the ones up to 7 days out. HELP!

This isn't really a fix but it does stop this being a problem. Right-click on the TaskPad header in the Calendar window and select Customize current view, then select Group By. Now group by due date. Then select for only the next seven days to be displayed, tasks with no due date will still be displayed, but under a seperate heading of Due Date None.

I am using Outlook 2003 and I have a contractor using Outlook 2002. I have created many tasks for him in Outlook 2003 and assigned them to his email address. This makes them unable to be edited from my end. When he sends them back to me they show up as an email that is unable to be opened and I cannot do anything with the tasks since the last action I did was to assign it to him, and I no longer have control over the task from my end. The reading pane says "this item cannot be displayed in the reading pane. Open the item to read its contents" but I cannot open it, it does nothing when I double click or right-click and select Open.

We are both on the same POP3 server but we do not have Exchange. I am not sure if this is even supposed to work like this, but can anyone tell me whether I should be able to reliably assign and receive updates and completions for Tasks in Outlook? And, is this inter operable between Outlook 2002 and 2003?

Thanks,

Okay, no delegates, but what about other permissions?

Right-click the inbox and see who has permissions AT ALL.

Remove all permissions and see if it continues to happen.

I used to enjoy using the outlook to sync tasks with other users over the internet. It appears this feature is no longer supported on newer versions so I have been hunting for an online version. I down loaded this software call 4Teams. It turns out that you cannot do recuring tasks, so I removed it. Afterwards my outlook was only opening every other time. I reinstall/repaired it with the install disk. Still the program showed the additional 4-team button on the toolbar. And I was still having problems. So I totally reinstalled it, and it still showed up. Now it won't open at all.

By the way, when I use Ctrl-Alt-Del to stop it after it locks up for several minutes trying to load, I see two outlook items, one dim the other normal in the end program screen.

I have sent a support reuest to 4-teams but have not heard back from them.

I am running Outlook 2000 on both my laptop and desktop computers. Ultimately I would like to be able to sychronize the information on both..on a continuous basis. In other words, sometimes I will be checking email from the laptop, other times from the desktop. At this point, I know of no way to keep the information straight, so that it is always in synch.

A:Tips on synchronizing Outlook Email and Tasks

You can, but its a bit of a hack (or very specific configuration) that can be accomplished if you have a cerrtain type of mail service, most of which are a monthly fee but Gmail and now I believe Yahoo (but you'd have to have the paid account), have what is called IMAP email (Hotmail (or Live! Mail) does the same thing though its more proprietary) that basically keeps all the email online the same as always but it also syncs with whatever desktop client logs in and is configured for IMAP mail so no matter what system you checked mail with, you'd have syncronous mail.

The cost? $0 if you use Gmail. You can find more information about configuration from within a gmail account under settings>Forwarding and POP/IMAP. You should even be able to forward your email from your current account to Gmail if its not already and allow the continued use of your current email address as well. I think its very kool and I'm gradually trying to get all my accounts there or Windows Live! Mail is working pretty good for me also since I have mostly Yahoo and Hotmail accounts already. 3 more replies Answer Match 49.56% I am trying to print up my task list in outlook 2002.

Customers send in problems to a specific mailbox, someone monitoring that mailbox generates a task using that email and assigns the task to another user to handle it. The second user accepts the task, adds whatever work they do, and finally sets the status as Complete, which closes it on their end and sends an update to the monitored mailbox for closing it there. 95% of the time, this works flawlessly. Sometimes the second user goes through all the motions and closes out the task, but the monitored mailbox task is never updated correctly to show it as closed. This leads to a minor amount of tail-chasing and finger wagging as people get confused and wonder why something is still showing as active.

Problem: To sync Outlook Tasks to the phone maintaining the sort order of my desktop Outlook. If you sync using Apple's iCloud tasks are placed in the reminder app which does not allow for custom sort and seemingly sorts by the least reasonable measure. I could get tasks to sync using Outlook Connector and (opening an account with) Hotmail. However I can't find a current straight answer as to whether that option falls under$ subscription. Further, even if I did sync this way I don't know if the tasks would still be rearranged by the phone or whether it was the iCloud that rearranged them when I attempted that route.

Lastly, I could (for $10/mo) just have my entire Outlook sync through Rack Space's Hosted Exchange. Apart from getting tasks to the phone this does have another important benefit that might also be achieved using Connector. But if I'm going to pay for this, even if the$10 is double a MS charge, I'd prefer going with Exchange. But the core question remains the same (which I cannot get from RS either). Will the tasks on the phone, after sync, maintain 'my' sort order from Outlook.

A:Wrong forum (but) Outlook tasks sync iphone MS conn vs hosted exchange

Hello,

First, I don't own an IPhone but a Droid, but I've synced and configured Iphones at work thru our Exchange Server. Syncing works very well with the email, calendar and all the Tasks goes under Reminders in IPhone and the sort order in Outlook stays the same as far as I know if not I'd hear complaints from the Users.
But, with the hosted Exchange solution I don't know if it will make any difference. Best thing to do is give it a try for a few days and see if it works for you. Most of the hosted exchange providers should have a free trial.

Outlook 2002 caused me no end of problems for years and I sat there and took it, but finally I decided to get rid of it and switch to Thunderbird. I'm happy with it, but one of the main reasons I stuck with Outlook so long was the "tasks" function, which gave me timed reminders of upcoming events, responsibilities, etc.

Can anyone suggest what I can use to replace it? I imported the tasks into Thunderbird but I have no idea if TB has a similar feature, or whether there is a plug-in of some kind I can use. I want something that will allow me to get reminders all the time about what's coming up...

Note: even though I have tons of tasks already imported, just being able to use these is not a deal-breaker; if there's a great plug-in I can use that would mean I'd have to start over on the tasks, I'd deal with it.

thanks!

A:Solved: got rid of Outlook, now I need a good "tasks" replacement

Good evening..i have just completed the combofix scan on my Openlabs Neko TSE. Which is my music workstation with a built in computer. Please can you review my log for further advice.? I really appreciate you for this. This workstation is the key to all my productions. I have been freaking out all night. Aloha!

Hello,That request about NOT posting CF logs is primarily to keep people from running the program unsupervised.Please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ which explains that reasoning further.Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic.If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.Orange Blossom

Hi and welcome to TSF.

My name is Iain and I will be helping you clean your system.

Please read these instructions carefully and then print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the fix. You should not have any open browsers or live internet connections when you are following the procedures below.

Note that the fix may take several posts. Please continue to respond to my instructions until I confirm that your logs are clean. Remember that although your symptoms may vanish, this does NOT mean that your system is clean.

If there is anything you don't understand, please ask BEFORE proceeding with the fixes.

Please ensure that you follow the instructions in the order I have them listed.
Do not do anything with this yet!

Hello

I needed you to go all the way through the steps. We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting any malware that may be present. As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic (Updated!) IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting A Log, download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your next reply.

Desktop machine.
Windows Vista Home Prem. 32b.

The computer shut itself down a few days ago while it was copying for files.
Then, it behaved abnormally after restart.
A back to the factory status recovery was performed, but it did not complete the task.
The last part of the recovery did not run.
The recovery disks, burned right after the purchase of the machine and used before, were used and they ended the same way.
The last part of the recovery did not run.

There are 3 partitions on the HDD.
Partition 0, 20GB. hidden, keeping the recovery OS.
Partition 1. 223GB. partition C.
Partition 2. 220GB. partition D.

Question:
If partition C is formatted, can recovery OS be installed on partition C ?

Thanks.

A:Recovery can not be completed.

What's the brand name and model name and model number of that desktop?

What's the part/product number and/or service tag number and/or serial number on it?

Finally got my gaming rig built and in perfect working order. Took me a while figure out how to put my two HDD into raid 0. One of the tech support guys at EVGA helped me out and said that HDDs have a hard time going into raid array if they have never been used, which was the case. I just installed some stuff on my two HDDs and reformatted the partition and BOOM it stopped giving me errors, LOL. Anywho here is the finished build:

The Scythe fans sound like a tornado when I first turn on the computer but it gets quite once the bios and PSU start regulating them and you can't notice it when playing games or listening to music. I bought a generic filter for the intake fan and realized that it wasn't needed because the case already comes with filters that you just slide off and wash.

I have a couple of Word 7 files which can't be moved, deleted or renamed. Any attempt results in a message: This action cannot be completed as it is in use by another program. It is not in use by any program I am aware of. When I open the file, it says (Read Only) in the title bar but the properties dialogue boxes are not checked as read only. Of course, I can't save any changes to the file unless I go to 'save as' but that still leaves me with an undeletable/uneditable file. I am using Vista Ultimate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:This action cannot be completed...

Unless you're particularly interested in the mechanics of why this might be happening, I'd suggest booting to safe mode (press the F8 key early during Windows startup) and moving or deleting the files from there. You probably won't have trouble deleting the files that way.

Hi everyone!

Ive just completed my upgrade from an MSI 745 Ulta mobo and ATI Radeon 7000 series 64meg AGP x4 graphics card to an Abit NF7-S mobo and ATI Radeon 9550 AGP x8 256meg graphics card and I gotta say, boy what a difference.

Now I have to save up my pennies to get myself a better processor, I have an AMD Athlon XP Pro 2000 and was wondering what i should replace it with?

There's a fair ammount of choice out there so i was wondering if anyone has any recomendations?

Nice speed jump!
Upgrading always starts with budjet. If you are going to keep your Mb , then simply buy the best (fastest) CPU you can afford at the time.If you are saving pennies you will probably be able to get the quickest cpu your mb can handle.

Hi,

Having successfully performed a 3 hour chkdsk by means of a downloaded microsoft program which did this automatically, the screen is left hanging and there is no option available to exit from it. I tried switching off and then on again but this just puts me back to the start of the chdsk routine which then completes again. So I'm stuck in a loop from which I can't escape !! What do you recommend ?

A:After chkdsk has completed

Hello ,

here is a shot in the dark

turn your system on & then back off

them push your power button as if you wanted to start it and hold it for a count of 10

this will clear the compleat system of power and maybe reset way your system starts / you may want to reset the bios also by crossing the bios jumpers or just pulling the litheum battery from your mother board for at least 3 minutes

you may be looking at wipeing the driver & reinstalling

have you tried to get into the recovery console useing the Windows XP cd ?

Hi, I just built a new computer, and it's running XP Pro 64-bit. It ran fine for the first week, but now I'm getting a problem everytime I open "My Computer". Instead of showing my drives, it does the search animation. After a minute or two, it will either find all the drives, or it will say something like "This operation could not be completed because (something) is being used by another program." and gives me two options: "Retry", or "Switch To". When I click "Switch To" it opens my "Start" menu.

A (possibly) related problem is when I open IE, I get shown a set-up menu, but when I click "Save Changes" the webpage hangs. I can bypass this and use the internet fine though. Also, my computer randomly hangs sometimes when playing games.

I'm pretty disappointed with all these errors on what was supposed to be my fresh computer... Any help is appreciated.

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in but..

Have installed Windows 8 64bit on three computers, all similar spec (amd a8 processors and gigabyte f2 motherboards with 8gig ram.)

Windows seems to be ok in every other respect other than I am getting an error in the metro store. When trying to install any app I get the error:

I have searched the internet for this error, and although I can find similar errors, I can see no one else having the error code with the same scrambled type.

We got around the error by signing in to a microsoft account, but then we are unable to create a pin for said account (the cursor just spins).

This happens on all three computers.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Have you tried copying & pasting the error code in Google ?

I find that helps.

EDIT--

Perhaps this phone number will help.
I've used it & got good help from Microsoft.

Let's see if these logs will show us anything:

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Before doing anything, MAKE SURE that you can keep your computer on (at least until we get it fixed). This infection requires us to detect and remove it without rebooting or restarting your computer (unless the instructions say so). If you can't keep your computer on today, then I suggest that you don't get the logs yet until you are ready. With that said (when ready):

Open up HijackThis and go to Config->Misc Tools and check the first two boxes there. Now click on the Generate StartupList log button. Post that log in your next post.

Right click on this link and choose Save As...Save it to your Desktop. Make sure you have disabled any programs that may block/disable scripts (ex: Ad-Watch, TeaTimer, Norton, etc.). Double click on Silent Runners to run it. This will take a few minutes. It will create a file called Startup Programs followed by your computer name and current date. Open up that file and post all the contents here in your next post.

Download Find-qoologic. Unzip the files to your Desktop. Open the qoologic folder and run the qoologic.bat file. Wait a few minutes for it to finish. When the dos window disappears, go to your C: drive and open up the log.txt file. Copy and p... Read more

I completed 1 RMA with HP and the teleplan service center guys sent me the machine back with the note - no issues found, reloaded OS. This time they loaded the OS with SATA controller as IDE as opposed to the default RAID setting that had come when I had purchased the system.

I let it run overnight hoping for the best but see the BSOD error in morning - I would really appreciate if somebody can pin point the issue so in the next RMA I can advise HP Teleplan guys about it - they seem to not spend great deal of time researching the issue but try to do a quick fix that obviously didn't work.

The action can?t be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program. I suspect that my anti virus, Norton 360, is stopping me from deleting a specific folder, it happens only in one specific folder.
When I restart my computer, it takes time to the regular background tasks to "wake up", so I can delete it once the computer turns on, but then something stops me from deleting the folder. I am not sure if it is Norton 360, or another problem.
Would it be a Malware?

to see if its Norton 360. disconnect from intern ,disable Norton360 temporally ,how to do so will be in the settings of Norton , after its disable try deleting file.

just found this in google ,how to disable Norton temporally .

Try right clicking on the 360 icon in your notification area. You should be able to disable protection features for a specified time. Remember that you are unprotected while doing this, so you should disconnect from the Internet while doing this. Remember to reset the protection when you are finished.

I've run CHKDSK on a couple of laptops today, and in each case, after hanging for ages around 10-11%, the laptop rebooted while my back was turned. (The process was run at boot and the internet was not connected at the time.)

Is there a way to check if the process completed and what it did?

There is a CBS log with today's date, with entries that correspond time-wise to the CHKDSK activity, but I don't understand them. At the end there are several entries like this:

Can anyone explain what this means please, and if I have a problem?

Coincidentally (or not) There are similar 'Failed to internally open....' entries in the CBS log from when I turned the laptop back on later in the morning.

A:How do I know if CHKDSK completed successfully?

Hi, check this tutorials CHKDSK - Check a Drive for Errors in Windows 8 and Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log - Windows 7 Help Forums to see if they will help you.

Good luck, werty

I'll give some background.

I have a tri-boot setup. Windows 8 one ssd, windows 7 pro on a second ssd and ubuntu 13.04 on a partition on a 2 gig raid 1. The boot partition is on the windows 7 ssd. All drives are on the same Intel controller. Prior to the 8.1 attempt it worked. I'd boot the w7 ssd and a black win7 style boot screen would appear with the 3 OS choices. I'd been using win 8 as primary since it's release with no real issues.

I updated through the store early today and the process had a hitch after the first reboot but I rebooted and it completed the install. Windows 8.1 started and walked me though an initial setup. Once in, all looked pretty much unchanged. The only issued was it asked me to reinstall some XLan software.

I rebooted to check my other OS's and the problems began. I boot up, it loaded the blue win8 boot screen with all 3 OS present when I attempted to boot ubuntu it went to a black screen with no possible input. Hard rebooting brought up the grub bootloader (not win8 bootscreen) and I was able to enter ubuntu. Same thing happened with win 7 pro. I soft rebooted and the win 8 bootscreen appeared. Choosing win 7 took me to a hung black screen - hard reboot directly started up win 7. Restarting to win 8 bootscreen again and choosing win8.1 took me to another black screen - Hard reboot from there started up a win 8 repair process.

This is always the case with each of the 3 OS's. I have found that I can get into win8 if I enter through safe mode ... Read more

A:8.1 update completed but problematic

I have the exact same problem. I even had the XLan error you described. Once I restarted the computer, it always go to a black screen. I do not have multiple OS's to boot into, but the black screen always comes up after the little blue windows 8 loading screen.

Update:

When I tried your suggestion of enabling Debugging, it loaded up. However, 1-2 minutes later it would freeze and I would have to push the reset button on the machine. In Safe Mode, I didn't have any of the freezing, but when I tried to uninstall Norton Internet Security, it would freeze. After a restart, I downloaded the Norton Removal Tool, and removed Norton. At this point, starting Windows 8.1 with Debugging allows me to stay freeze-free. However, trying to start up without Debugging gives me the same black screen.

Another thing to note is that when I have all non-Microsoft services stopped, I still get the black screen upon bootup. I'm not quite sure what Debugging mode does in terms of bootup, but its definitely a workaround for now. I used msconfig.exe to keep debugging turned on for now.

Again, if someone figures out the fix, report back.

Hello TSF -

Recently, i have had a problem with my system restore. After i attempt a restore, the computer reboots fine and acts as if it did the restore, but when i sign it, i get a messege saying system restore incomplete, or something along those lines. I decided to check the sr.inf file, right clicked and clicked install, but it said i need a windows XP sp3 cd, and i only have the original SP2 cd, not Sp3. Also i'm not sure if that will even fix the probem, has anyone else seen this problem? any help would be greatly appreciated!

-Thank you.

I had a problem with my yoga 700 11". The laptop freezes every so often (3-6 hours). At first I thought it's the drivers that need to be updated, then Windows 10 updates, then BIOS update.I tried all of that but the problem still persisted. I did the recovery reset but still the same... I created Linux system on USB flash drive and booted the laptop with it. Even under Linux the laptop was freezing.I contacted lenovo support team and they said the laptop needs to be repaired and they send me the return free postage vocher. I put my laptop in the original box and posted it as I was instructed (for some reason it was send to Germany). The company name that issued me with the postage slip was MEDION AG - A Lenovo CompanyAfter 13 days I got an email saying:"...After assessing your device, the repair center has deemed that a repair cannot be completed under the manufacturer?s warranty due the case of the device showing signs of inappropriate treatment. ..." There were two pdf documents attached to the email. one with the detailed photos of the damage ( see photo attached) and the other one, the cost estimate document. In the document I was given two options:1. accept the cost of repair (£54.65)2. not accept and the laptop would be return to me (I would be still charged fat price of £44.07)My reply was that I do not recall the laptop having this damage and I always looked after it.

I got my P50 a few weeks ago and yesterday its LCD went half black. OK, this happens.I turned it into authorized premium repair center and they got LCD replaced (as my P50 is under warranty). No big deal.However, they could not re-calibrate the new LCD screen because I do not run Windows on my P50 (running Kubuntu).It would not be a big deal either (the Panel Replacement Utility they have does not run on Linux, but I can live without that), however there is one worrying thing: by my request, they printed Lenove repair instructions for me where it is stated, that "Failing to run the Panel Replacement Utility program will require another LCD panel replacement". Please note "will require". My interpretation of this statement is that LCD will fail again unless I run this Panel Replacement Utility which requires Windows (not Linux version exists). Repair guys could not comment on that in either direction.REALLY????So, despite the fact that nor P50 user guide nor warranty description limit me from using non-Windows OS, the P50 cannot be repaired to be used in full capacity unless I use Windows.Do I miss anything? Is this an official position of Lenovo on non-Windows OS use on ThinkPad P50?

I am using SQL Server 7.0.
I have databases DB1 (only current values) and DB2 (both current and old - keeps history). When I update (or insert), on DB1, a copy of the row I am working on has to be sent to DB2 using a trigger. What gets completed first? The update process on DB1 or the action started by the trigger? I am asking this because of what I found at this site:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/architec/8_ar_da_1tup.asp

…..
You can use the FOR clause to specify when a trigger is executed:
AFTER
The trigger executes after the statement that triggered it completes. If the statement fails with an error, such as a constraint violation or syntax error, the trigger is not executed. AFTER triggers cannot be specified for views, they can only be specified for tables. You can specify multiple AFTER triggers for each triggering action (INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE). If you have multiple AFTER triggers for a table, you can use sp_settriggerorder to define which AFTER trigger fires first and which fires last. All other AFTER triggers besides the first and last fire in an undefined order which you cannot control.

AFTER is the default in SQL Server 2000. You could not specify AFTER or INSTEAD OF in SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier, all triggers in those versions operated as AFTER triggers.

…..

This statement sounds confusing?

A:Which is completed 1st? a transaction or a trigger?

Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 provides two primary mechanisms for enforcing business rules and data integrity: constraints and triggers. A trigger is a special type of stored procedure that automatically takes effect when the data in a specified table is modified. A trigger is invoked in response to an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement. A trigger can query other tables and can include complex Transact-SQL statements. The trigger and the statement that fires it are treated as a single transaction, which can be rolled back from within the trigger. If a severe error is detected (for example, insufficient disk space), the entire transaction automatically rolls back.
This means that the trigger completes before the transaction, you can rollback a transaction within a trigger as mentioned above so in your case the action started by the trigger completes before the update action.

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Is this re. Windows login ? You can't login to Windows? If yes, I have encounter such a problem once only but was with Win 8. Anyway - if this is a new computer you can revert the software back to factory default settings. Eventually you should create a local account (not login with Microsoft account). At the end, you can always migrate the local account to Microsoft account. If this is not re. Windows login, please provide back details.

Dear Broni and All,

I have completed all steps, and ran the security programmes recommended in this thread:

http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/keep-getting-stupid-shopping-malware-installed.208648/

However, I am still getting pop-ups and adware related problems, which means that the underlying problem has not been resolved.
These are the programmes that I have run (today, 18/05/2015):
-RogueKiller
-Mbar
-AdwCleaner (it removed NickelBlock, AllCheeiaPPPriCe, DowwnSaave, SaVieNeewaApupoz)
-Junkware Remover
-Farbar Recovery Tool
-Farbar Security Scanner
-Security Check
-Tempfile Cleaner

I am currently running Sophos.
My laptop runs Windows 8.1, and Combofix does not support it.
The antivirus that I have is Kaspersky (I previously had Microsoft Security Essential), and Windows Defender. The malware was not detected by a Kaspersky and Spybot full scan a few days ago. However, on the 26th of April, I manually uninstalled some adware, and then ran full scans, which showed nothing.

As you can imagine, I don't think I have many options left, and formatting my laptop is a dreadful prospect. I was wondering if you could give me some advice.
I have kept all logs of the security programmes that I've run.

Thank you in advance, and looking forward to hearing from you.

A neighbor brought over his computer since he knows I help folks with infections.  It appears he already ran and removed infections found with SAS Portable and MBAM.  I can include those logs if you like so let me know.

Hello and thank you for any help you may be able to give. I've gone through the five required steps before posting my logs for help.

I've run Spybot, Adaware and SuperAntiSpyware and can't seem to clear up whatever the issue is.

Following are the required log files (as well as the "extra" text file attached):

G'day, I'm running Windows 7 Home premium on a Dell Inspiron laptop.

When I am trying to organise my music files and folders in my music Library I randomly get this error:

But there can be nothing else open, no media player, (neither WMP or Media Monkey which I usually use), or any other window open at all. This is intermittent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

For example; I just discovered that I have a Chris De Burgh folder with a couple albums in it and another folder titled Chris De Burgh - Greatest Hits. I decided to move the latter into the former and rename the latter to simply Greatest Hits. At first it wouldn't copy into the Chris de Burgh folder at all and the dreaded error came up. I clicked on another folder, went back and tried again and it worked. After putting the CDB-GH folder into the CDB one I tried to rename it, (without opening it).
