Groove Shows Unknown Artist & Unknown Album

Q: Groove Shows Unknown Artist & Unknown Album

I've just installed Windows 10 and experimented with the Groove music player. It finds all the songs but they are tagged Unknown Artist and Unknown Album. The songs appear fine in iTunes with the correct details and album art.

I reset Groove and made it scan the music directories again but the problem remains. Any solutions?

I've been trolling the forums here for a while. Lots of great info but now I actually have an issue where I need some assistance.

When I was booting one day last week I got a nasty BSOD when Windows was trying to load. Then on the next reboot Windows 7 said it couldn't load and needed to do the recovery OS option from the Windows 7 repair on the CD. Well, before trying that I did a cold reboot and it got back into the OS fine so I didn't think much of it. Now, I noticed Ghost shows the C: drive status as "Unavailable" and it can't back it up anymore. It does give me an option to restore from one of my old backups. I'm thinking the MBR got hosed up somehow or something like that. But I'm skeptical to run an MBR repair since I have that 100MB partition on my SSD where my OS resides.

This was about a week ago my Windows 7 started acting up right before the big patch Tuesday. I've been running it for over a year now and it's been solid. When I first set it up I installed it on my SSD (Intel 510 120GB) drive. One of the qualms I had with the install is Windows created a separate boot sector on the disk drive where it stored my boot files. This is known the the "system reserved" operating system files 100MB partition. Apparently the way to avoid this is to use a third party partition tool before doing the windows install. That way it will keep the Boot sector files on the same partition which is how I would of liked it for doing resto... Read more

Background:
Not on anniversary update yet. I was having a problem with the Groove app not adding any Artist art for any of my music on my Lumia 1520. Artist art would not show up at all. I have all the metadata and Album art setup perfectly using a program called mp3 tag. I have the exact same music on my phone as I do on my computer (copied from computer to phone via usb).
I tried the Groove app on my computer once, but didn't turn on the setting to "Automatically retrieve and update missing album art and metadata" because I didn't want it to mess up my already perfect metadata. I did, however, turn on that setting on my phone, but still no Artist art. Troubleshooting and solution:
I decided to turn on that setting on my computer groove app and within a few seconds I started getting Artist art. All but a few were found. I then went to the phone, turned the setting back on and still nothing. I then tried hooking the phone to my home wifi, and within a few seconds I started getting Artist art. I never hook my phone to wifi because I have more data in my plan than I know what to do with so I use LTE exclusively. It seems the groove app isn't capable of, or allowed to, download the Artist art on a data connection, but it does work fine when on wifi. If you're having any issues try hooking to wifi and then open the groove app and let it do it's thing.
Only a few Artist art were still missing so I used a program called Groove Manager. This program was able to find ... Read more

I wanted to know how to change artist artwork in Groove Music. I have a band that does not have the right artwork in the "Artists" category. Any idea how to change this? Or is there no way and maybe the new Anniversary update will fix it?

How do I fix this? Like 80% of the songs in my music library cannot be played by Cortana either by voice or typing a command in (I just get told I need a subscription when I already HAVE the song--only a few songs play properly via Cortana).

A:You need a subscription to play <song> by <artist> on Groove - Cortana

I can't tell by your screenshot what the format of the song is. If it is MP3, you should have no problem. But if you have a file saved in a type that requires a license and it's not on this PC, you won't be able to play it.

Hey guys!! So I know there are quite a few people who want to change most of the images that Groove Music uses as but not limited too Artist Images, Artist Banners, Live Tiles etc. The process does take a while but If you are hell-bent on changing them, or if you prefer another image it is possible!! Groove music stores all these images locally; I am not talking about Album covers.
Programs you need:
Photoshop CC
CMD
Step 1.
Ensure ?View Hidden Folders? is ticked. To do this open start menu and search for ?Folder Explorer Options?. Once opened click View. Under Hidden Files and folders tick ?Show hidden files, folders, and drives?.
Step 2.
Navigate to this address in explorer: (Where USERNAME is you own)
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ZuneMusic_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\ImageCache\20
Step 3.
Back up all these files anywhere, such as a separate folder.

Now inside the original folder it will be filled with blank looking files. The easier option is to use advanced renamer to change all the file extensions to jpgs. Here?s a link on how to bulk change extensions using cmd:

Hello,

I currently use WMP10.

I have ripped music from some of my burned CDs and entered the tracklistings on the occasion where no info shows up. I would have all of my music files nicely organized, named and with pictures of the CD on the folder. This morning when I opened my music folder, I noticed an "Unknown Artist" folder filled with tons of the files that I had just renamed! This happened a couple of times before, but I ignored it and went back to re-typing all the artist info. This is getting very frustrating and only seems to happen to about 3-4 particular CDs that I ripped. It will also take the first track from an Album and put it in it's own folder by itself (titled "Soundtrack")

I'm really confused and frustrated. Any idea on what could be causing this?

That is strange. Can you use the advanced tag editor in Windows Media Player to add details?

Go into your library. Select 'Songs' from the sidebar. Then, right click on a song and select 'Advanced tag editor'. There, you can use the different tabs to add song and artist info.

Hello,

I used iTunes to rip all my cds onto an external hard drive a while ago. I then upgraded to the latest iTunes, and having done so, iTunes reimported my music from the relevant folder. However, a huge number of songs (and I'm talking in the thousands here) are missing their artist and album info. I don't understand why this has happened when I used a previous version of iTunes to rip the cds in the first place. I've tried looking at the tags for these songs, but I don't get an option relating to ID3 tags when I right-click, so I can't manipulate that.

The only way I can see me fixing this is to manually important each album and type in the artist/album info. With such a huge number of songs to fix, I really don't want to do this! Suffice it to say I am not going to update iTunes again, ever!

Many thanks for any help you can give.

A:iTunes: artist and album info missing

I would check the files again with a tag editor like Mp3Tag to see if the data is there or not. If the Artist and Album tags are still there then you should be able to rebuild the iTunes library.

If the tags are missing you might be able to update the tags from the filenames with Mp3Tag if you have a consistent file naming convention.

I have Windows XP Pro, SP2, a Linux distribution and in that I use the desktop KDE.

The only reason I mention these two, is to let it be known that I have experience with more than one tag editor. And the three I'm familiar with have only the fields: Title, Artist, Album, Track, Genre and Comment.

But in Windows Media Player, (WMP), when you right click on a song, on the Context Menu that comes up, you can select Advanced Tag Editor. It's not a real tag editor, because it doesn't make a permanent change. It only changes the way the WMP library sees it. On that Advanced Tag Editor, under the Artist Info tab is a box called Album Artist. So far I've only seen it have the same artist as in the box above, called Artist.

One of the questions are that, sometimes that Album Artist box is empty. Sometimes it's not. If it has an Album Artist WMP will see it as a different album. Even though all the fields in regular tag editor are identical. One of my other questions is: where does it get that information? Can you get tag editors that have an editable Album Artist field?

Thanks,

royeo
 

A:Is there a field called Album Artist available in some tag editors

I looked through my tag editors and I found that TagScanner (freeware) will edit that field. WMP fills in that data when you do an internet lookup from whatever online database WMP uses. Some of those fields are not maintained that well so sometimes there's data in them, sometimes not. Composer is another such field.

The question is do you want use that field for anything? Does it provide any useful information?

Since installing WMP 10, the player will not identify my CD's from internet databases. It just lists the tracks as "unknown artist." All my settings are correct and I am connected to the internet. When I click "find album info" the player will find the album info, but when I click "finish" it still names my album and tracks "unknown artist". Also, when I click on sms.napster to find album info I get a small window that says "This type of document does not have a security certificate". Any ideas short of reinstalling or upgrading to wmp11? Thanks.

When I click on "albums" on my iPhone, it brings up a list of albums separated by artist (i.e. if there are three different artists tagged in one compilation album, all three of them have their own folder). This is a problem for me because sometimes I want to listen to an entire album on shuffle, the same way I'd want to listen to a specific artist's songs on shuffle. Some compilation albums have works from several different artists so each folder has only one or two songs. Is it possible to make it sort only by album, or to just tell it to play several albums at once? I'm not talking about playlists; this is for a quick sort, shuffle, and play.

On my PC I have one directory for all my mp3s. However, on my portable mp3 player (Archos FM Recorder) I would like to have my mp3s organized into folders (i.e. /Artist/Album). I want to keep my PC single all-mp3 directory the same (because if I could have this structure on my archos I would but can't due to a 400 file per directory limit on the archos) but I would like to have Artist/Album directories on the Archos in order to stay under the 400 files per directory limit as well as make it easy to find the files
on the archos.

Is there a way or piece of software that will export my one huge directory of mp3s into smaller folders of artist and album on my Archos player so that I can deal with them easier on the player. I've heard that the program Visual MP3 can do this ( with its MP3 search wizard and batch catalog features), but it keeps crashing on my computer. Are there any other programs out there that can do this?

Also, say I do manage to have all my mp3s in one directory on my PC and get my desired Artist/Album directory structure on the Archos. Is there a program that will sync my PC mp3s and mp3 playlists with the Archos, given the Archos' different directory structure?
Thanks so much for your help!

To do this just make a file in notepad and save it as a .bat file.
Then run it when you need to sort your files.

A:My NETWORK shows an unknown Item 192.168.2.5 ?

Hi Simonwar,
We don't think there is any other client connected to the router. If the computer is both wired and wireless, that might show two different IP Addresses. Make sure the wireless security on your router is enabled, so that no one can connect to your router wirelessly. 192.168.2.5 could be a static ip address also. Make sure the ip address on your computer should be assigned by the DHCP.

To isolate this issue you can login to 192.168.2.1 and check that out. Please follow the steps given below:

1. Open an Internet Explorer and type in "192.168.2.1" in the address bar without any quotation mark and press Enter.
2. Click on Login, by default the password might be blank and click submit.
3. Click on DHCP Client List on the left hand side of the page.
4. You can view the Client name and the Client's MAC Address and the ip address which is connected to your router.

Note : If that is a wireless client, you will have to enable the wireless security on your router. That will automatically get disconnected as soon as you enable the wireless security on your router.

If the problem persists, please get back to us with the following information:
1. Model and version number of the router?
2. Number of the computers connected to the router (Wired and Wireless)?
3. If the IP Address is assigned manually on one of the computers?

Thank you.

I have two services that show up under services in the Computer Manager: Nwcdbh02ist and Udfstapteet

They also show up in the Ultimate TroubleShooter. In that program, when I click on "Explore Services Folder" for each of these services, I get a message saying that the folder cannot be found.

The Computer Management provides no information about either service other than they are both set to manual, local service and that there are no dependencies on them in either direction. Both services are stopped - I did not set them that way.

Any ideas of what these are? I've already searched the file database here on BleepingComputer and got nothing. A Google search also brings up nothing. Given the rather Germanic appearance to the name, I think Udfstapteet might be related to SpyBot's TeaTimer which I had installed for a while, but I'm not sure.

Well, I have discovered one small bit of information. In looking at my HiJack this Log, I have found that Nwcdbh02ist is connected with the NVIDIA Corporation. In googling that company I find that they deal with Graphic cards and video software including software that decodes DVD's for Windows Media player and Microsoft Media Player.

Since my graphic card doesn't appear to be from NVIDIA, I'm left with the conclusion that is related to my media players. I'll have to see if I can play a DVD, and if I can't I'll have to figure out how to get the rest of the software this service belongs to.

Im wondering since i plan to sell this PC at some point if i can edit my registry somehow so it shows the correct CPU? I think ive done this before but its been many years ago.

A:Amd Athlon X2 BE 2350 from Acer Shows as Unknown CPU

Have you checked the mobo's cpu compatibility list? Have you installed the chipset driver for the mobo? Have you tried updating the BIOS?

Hello
I got my 1tB WD external disk and it's not working as it used to. The problem came from nowhere, suddenly, totally unexpected. There is/was my precious data on it which I collected for 10+ years and I'd like not to lose it.

Origin:
It was working fine a day ago, no problems occured. Hasn't been unplugged since then. Has never fallen. Has never had any kind of error. But: I've seen some kind of ".COM not responding" problem on my PC (don't remember, closed it immediately). I believe my laptop is in a good and healthy condition.

So, what my WD HDD does is:
- it can be seen as a device by my computer. I can plug it out safely.
- diode shows that it's working (not showing the data transfer activity)
- nothing else

What I see in Device Management/Storage is (as in the title):
Screenshot by Lightshot

What programs I used to try to restore partition:
- Mini tool Partition Recovery Home Edition (quick and deep scan, no results. Shows disk as a Bad Disk)
http://prntscr.com/2wpy8s
- Mini tool Power Data Recovery (pro, non-free tool, however after scan there was no results)
- Find and Mount (no results)
- TestDisk (quick and deep scan, no results)

What I haven't tried doing is connecting the HDD directly to the laptop.

Any suggestions?

A:External HDD shows as Unknown, Not initialized, Unallocated. Restore?

You should try directly conmcting it. If that does not work, try this: Recover a flash drive turned RAW ? Partition Wizard and TestDisk. Do recovery with partition wizard. (Don't mind the name) But if that does not work, your drive is dead. Like a wise man said, backup, backup, backup!

Guys i have a similar problem but unlike the problem above my partition magic software does not read my external HD.. The device manager shows the HD is working properly.. and the disk manager shows DISK1 unknown and not initialized.. i m giving screen shot for both of them.. My external HD is WD 1TB HD.. it does not matter if i lose the data..but i want the HD to work[ATTACH][/ATTACH]

A:disk manager shows DISK1 unknown and not initialized

I had a Seagate drive fail suddenly last week -- a lot like the situation you described, and neither the Seagate nor the WD drive diagnostics even see the drive when it's in an external drive caddy. When I connect it to an internal drive cable, I get a SMART error and the PC hangs on the boot.

Have also tried Minitool Partition Wizard and some other data recovery apps, which CAN see the external drive, but they can't find or recover any partitions.

Suggest you check with Minitool as they offer a free trial of a data recovery app that might work for you.

This is the first time in years that I've had a drive fail and NONE of the data recovery apps have been able to find anything on the drive.

I've resorted to sending it off to a local data recovery service and am awaiting a quote.

Hi there,
 
First, i'm running 64-bit Windows 8.1
 
My issues is that when i run ccleaner to clean my computer Norton insight alert pops up showing that i'm downloading unkown exe files. This has happend a few times and don't know why. One of the file names was $RZDTPML.EXE. I believe file was downloaded to $recycle.bin but the source of the file is unknown.  When i tried to locate the file after the first alert message from norton insight it states that the file can not be found.  Don't know if this is a true issues or just a glitch with norton insight.  All virus scans (malwarebytes, hitman pro free, norton) show that my system is clean.
 
Thanks for your help!

Installed new hard drive and Windows 7, wireless card shows up as unknown device.
I was having major stability issues with windows. I wanted a new hard drive so i installed it and a new copy of windows. The wireless worked fine before, and ethernet works fine now. It shows up in device manager as other devices, network controller with a yellow exclamation mark. I have gone to Dell to install the driver. It almost finishes then says you do not have a recognized wireless device.

My comp is a Dell Inspiron M5010, I installed windows 7 HP 64 bit same as what was on before. WHDPC, K5Y6D are the numbers I have found for the card. I have tried several different drivers and all have the same error.

Any idea how to get windows to recognize the card so the drivers I install will recognize it? There are many threads about this in various places, but none of the solutions work.

A:wireless card shows up as unknown after windows reinstall

Have you entered your service tag number from Dell.
That should tell you what was installed when you purchased the computer and point to the correct drivers.

I REALLY WILL STOP SURFING PORN NOW

pops up new ie windows (not tabs) that link to random sites, often unknown search engines showing results for last string searched on google, often for other random things (news 6 live, adfat, sals barbershop). seemingly benign.

After some time of this, more serious infections occur, including antivirus soft, many others.

Malabytes will knock out what it brings in, but not kill the initial infection.

have run malabytes in safe mode, safe mode + neworking, and mutiple times after knocking out later more malicious infections in both safe mode and regular. Sometimes picks up a few stragglres, sometimes not. But in all cases I still have the original thing which pops up a new ie window to some odd thing and presumably opens the door for the rest.

Works fine, but suddenly shuts down at times, alert shows battery not inserted (UNDETACHABLE on this MacBook model), won't run without power adapter connected, immediately shuts down when inserting USB cable into 1 of the 2 USB ports, won't detect internet connection, and so on and so on......

That aside, it worked fine until last week.

I was running Windows Update when I accidentally insert USB cable into the wrong port and "forced shut down" the laptop.

When rebooted, I get a flash of BSOD and auto-restart, which leads to startup repair.

From there, I ran startup repair a few times, each time I get the successful result yet Windows still won't start.

Then I switched to Mac OS to use it for some urgent stuff.
While in Mac OS I did went around and did "repair disk" and stuff to the bootcamp.

Next I tried searching for solutions through my phone and did this and that on command prompt.

If I look at the drive in "My Computer" it is full with a file system marked as "Raw" and it wants me to format the drive.I used "Recover My Files" software and it shows some of the documents that are on the drive, but doesn't show any recovery.I looked at some internet post about the message I got and partition and boot problems like I have, but at this point I don't to try any else to make it worse.I would do a reinstall ,but on one of the drives I have some stuff that wasn't backed up.I never thought about backing it up because it wasn't on the C drive.Any help to solve this problem would be appreciated. ..........Kumpie

Then I ran ComboFix and Malwarebytes Antimalware and found nothing. I then used GMER and removed a virtual cdrom that had been sitting on my computer long after Deamon Tools had been removed. 
It is the proxy server that worries me. Doing a quick search of it there does seem to be a Trojan keylogger that will listen on that port.

Hi All,

Maybe I'm just bad at searching the internet, but I've spent 2 days looking for a solution to a pretty major problem, and I'm astounded I seem to be the only person in the world with it.

I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro. On my old box, I had one huge folder with all my thousands of MP3s, which I copied into "My Music" on my new Win7 box.

When I started up WMP for the first time, I set the options to automatically download info from the net, rename files based on tag info, etc, as I had never bothered to do anything like this before to organize my mp3s. Immediately WMP went to work updating my mp3s. Good stuff.

Now to illustrate the problem. Lets use the example of 5 Aerosmith songs I have from the album Get a Grip. When WMP was all done with scanning my mp3s and updating info, everything appeared fine in WMP. That is, I could scroll to artist "Aerosmith" and then to the album "Get a Grip" complete with cover art, and see the 5 songs. Again, good stuff. Then I clicked "Show file location" and noticed something weird...

WMP player had automatically created the folder My Music\Aerosmith\Get a Grip. Awesome. Problem is, the "Get a Grip" folder only had 4 songs, despite the fact that in WMP I could see FIVE songs in the album. I searched for the 5th song and noticed that it was still orphaned in the base My Music folder. Why the hell hadn't it been moved with the rest? When I did some pok... Read more

A:WMP 12 sorts file system by "Album Artist" ??!

The reason you couldn't fix the data with a tag editor is that Album Artist is a field that's only stored on the WMP database and isn't written to a tag, so the only way to edit that field is through WMP.

Whenever you update your music information with an internet lookup the results are mixed, something will always get screwed up whether you use WMP or other software and then to use that data to change folder locations compounds the problem. You should only lookup an album at a time so you can fix any errors manually. I personally never let any software move my files around, it's asking for trouble.

My best advice is to not use WMP to store your music, the only thing I use WMP for is for viewing video. Try MediaMonkey it does a much better job of organizing music. It's also a good idea to use a tag editor so for that try Mp3tag.

Norton also lists this file isn't on a lot of peoples computers, which is a red flag.

I have ran avast antivirus but everytime it does not delete the infected .sys file , as it seems to replicate even if the antivirus deletes it over and over again. In addition, the mail scanner of avast pops up and shows services.exe and svchost.exe sending mail to unknown senders. The computer appears to be slower than usual and often has a hard time booting even in safe mode. the machine is runnning windows xp SP2 and has 256mb of ram. I have no idea how the virus came into the pc as i am not the main user, maybe an out of date java problem?

Hello. My computer recently (less than a day ago) started to display User Account Control prompts whenever I deleted or copied that weren't in the "Users" folder, such as the Program Files folder. I am using an Administrator account, and the User Account Control is set to notify when programs make changes to Windows but without dimming my desktop. Whenever I try to delete any type of file not in the Users folder, the User Account Control prompt pops up like in the attachment. I believe there is something wrong with the "File Operation" program, because I'd imagine it would be signed by Microsoft and would automatically be elevated to Admin status so the prompt shouldn't show in the first place. Clicking on "Change when these notifications appear" doesn't do anything, but I am able to copy/delete files after clicking "yes".

I'd really appreciate help, because it's getting annoying getting this prompt whenever I want to delete or copy a file, and this prompt never appeared before when I was just deleting a file until a day ago. I'm using Windows 7. I'm just using a Windows 8 RP theme. Also, I don't want to disable UAC, since it lowers security.

I feel perhaps something happened to that certain registry key or keys related to it. But I'm not sure.

EDIT: I figured out that something was wrong with shell32.dll, so I replaced it with an unmodified copy of the file from another computer and the prompt doesn't come up anymore.

Win7, latest version of Media Player. I have a ton of music that all of a sudden is shown in Media Player as "Unknown Artist", "Unknown Album". The track names are still OK, and the actual MP3 files are still in the original locations (\\Music\Artist\Album\## TrackName) (where ## = track number).

iTunes shows everything properly, but Media Player is wrong. I've tried a tag editor but even with the correct settings, it doesn't want to re-tag the files - it wants to rename them. The tags within the files are correct.

Wondering if there's a "cache" of some sort, or another way to force Media Player to re-scan my entire library, and update the tags based on the directory structure. Any ideas?
 

A:Solved: Media player shows everything as "unknown"

The basic problem here is that iTunes use ID3v2.4 tags, Windows (and WMP) uses ID3v2.3 tags and can't read ID3v2.4. So if you update the tags with iTunes and then add those tracks to WMP they're going to show up as "Unknown Artist". This is always going to cause problems if you try to use both iTunes and WMP libraries at the same time.

So pick which one you like better to use as your primary library and use the other one as a player only. You can use Mp3tag to take a look at the tags, see which versions are on the files and convert ones that are incorrect.

If you use iTunes as your primary library then I would delete the WMP database. But before you do you should turn off monitor folders so that WMP doesn't automatically add music files to it's library. Here's how to delete the database, ignore the last step:

Hi:

When I click on the wireless icon in the taskbar it shows connected to my home network and an unknown public network. However, in the network sharing center it shows both networks connected to the same SSID which I find strange. How do I get rid of the public unknown network? Also in windows explorer when I expand the 'Network' list it lists my own PC name on the network and also under media devices. Could these be the source of the public unknown network? Although my wireless is working fine,
this thing just bugs the hell out of me .

Thanks in advance.

I think a picture of the problem might help because I'm not completely sure about this.

It sounds like you may have inadvertently set up a wireless guest network when you set up your router.

Sometimes this is automatic on certain routers but there should be a way to disable it from the routers set up page.

Since they are both using the same SSID I'm assuming this guest network is set up outside the regular network so as to keep anyone connecting from accessing your data.

I have quite a lot of MP3 files on my computer and all of them have embedded artwork, some from Amazon and others (because Amazon Cloudplayer can replace the correct album art with incorrect) has been embedded using MP3nity.
 
Until the last day or two the artwork was displayed in Winamp, on the folder containing the album and on the icons inside the folder. I had to reinstall Winamp and since that time the artwork shows in Winamp and on the folder but the icons now have the default display as though the files contained no artwork.
 
I have tried going back to an earlier restore point but this does not solve the problem, I have gone into folde options and checked that "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is unticked but this does not sove the problem. I have run "SFC /SCANNOW" as an elevated command. Nothing works.
 
Does anyone know what else to do, hopefully without having to edit the registry?

I just purchased a Dell Precision 5510 with a Xeon CPU and the Quadro GPU: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291755935648 
I plan on promptly upgrading the SSD to a PCIe NVMe SSD if it does not have one, the 16GB RAM is fine for now but I like that I have the option to go up to 32GB when I choose to. 
I had some questions for anyone who is using this for more intense work in 3D or digital imaging, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information out there except that the Quadro 1000m is mostly better than a GTX 960-970m GeForce card because most 3D software is more compatible with it and it is more efficient in rendering which means better performance overall – is this true or just marketing for a lower powered GPU?  
I mainly use Maya, Cinema 4D, After Effects and Photoshop in my workflow, most of the work is performed by the CPU but a decent GPU helps to boost render times with certain software and plugins for said software.
I read that the Xeon CPU is built for 24/7 high load server work and enterprise solutions and that it is more effective at heat dissipation than a GeForce variant. I really liked the idea of the laptop handling heat and performace better in this workstation type of a laptop, I plan to keep it cooled with a pad because I know that rendering can be a huge task for most laptops. What I gathered from that info is that I could use this for rendering and not really worry about frying the mobo like might happen with an i7 and GTX combina... Read more

Hi,

On a fresh clean Windows 8 image, my software driver (signed) installs fine and shows up properly in the Device Manager. However once i uninstall it , subsequent reinstalls show up as 'Unknown Device' in the Device Manager.

From the device details, I find that it refers to /looks for the .inf file in c:\windows\inf folder but the file itself is missing from the location. The FileRepository has all the required files. But trying to update from there also fails.

Could anyone help me with troubleshooting this problem. What could be going wrong.

This is for Windows 10 mobile. I didn't see a mobile forum and I don't have a 950, so I hope this is the right place to post. I have a Lumia 1520 running windows 10 mobile (not anniversary update).
In the groove player under the Artist category I have no Artist art. Windows 8.1 mobile worked fine, I always had art for the Artists, it disappeared when I upgraded to win 10 mobile. In my attempt to fix the missing Artist art in the groove player I copied music from 3 artists up to One drive. When I do this I now get the Artist art in the groove player for anything I put on one drive. (I'm not talking about Album art, I have all the album art embedded in the mp3's using mp3tag, and they are working fine) Once I put an album on one drive I can then remove it from one drive and copy it directly to the phone and the Artist art remains. I suppose this could be a workaround until Microsoft fixes this awful groove player.
But.... I now see that anything I put on one drive, whether I kept it on one drive or removed it and copied the music directly to the phone, when I choose that artist I now get this advertisement in the bottom of the groove player asking me to Try Groove Music Pass for free. I don't want to try groove music pass, never will want to try it.
2 Questions.....
Is there anyway to get rid of this advertisement? (ads in apps included in the OS are unacceptable)
Anyone know how to get Artist art to show up in the player other than using the method I mentioned above?

I'm running a A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard on Windows XP 64. I didn't know at the time, that there really is nothing that's supported on 64, so I claim ignorance. I need help. Every time I try to install the chipset driver that came with the board, it won't get past the loading bar before logging in upon restart. I have to go back to before I installed it. With that, I can't use my USB ports for anything better than basic keyboard support. Suggestions? I'm dying here...

I was browsing my Task Manager for suspicous processes and I stumbled along one called 'WinStore.Mobile.exe'. Is this usual? I will post a Word Doc which includes screenshots.

A:Unknown .exe?

Hi, there's no such file on my PC.. perhaps it's related to a store app you've installed.

You've probably found a few other references to it on the internet, so it has been encountered by some.

Try rt clicking on it (viewed in task manager) and inspect the properties.

Dearest MajorGeekers,

This thread is a fork of issues which began here:

http://forums.majorgeeks.com/index.php?threads/bsod.301083/

While troubleshooting my machine and all signs pointing to a hardware issue, specifically one having to do with my SSD, an unknown driver file appeared: "qsbnrp.sys." satrow (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/index.php?members/satrow.160999/) suggested I start a thread here to address this. I would have logs to post as per the pinned post (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/index....ide-incl-spyware-virus-trojan-hijacker.35407/) but I can't get through the RogueKiller scan without crashing.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Hi Guys

Just curious, but has anyone come across any of these?

ravemuse.dll
wivovego.dll
bunesufe.dll

All system32 files

I had problems with lots of unwanted popups and was alerted to these as scumware by Security task manager. I duly quaranteed them but as per usual any reboot just brought them back.
In the end I deleted them, which although it did the trick I still get annoying messages concerning these missing dll's on start up.
I have Googled these files, but there seems to be no information on them, and until I can identify what generated them, I cant begin to try to get rid of them.

Any ideas would be most appreciated

Thank you

Something is occasionally taking over my computer. Iexplore starts running by itself and uses all resources on computer. No virus checker that I have run is able to detect problem. It will not let Panda Security run at all. Their tech tried for 1/2 hour and could load software, but wasn't allowed to run it. Here is copy of Hijack this log. This is my first time on a forum, please bear with me.

That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder.

Run HJT again and put a check in the following:
