Q: PLEASE HELP - The action can't be completed because the folder....

hi guys,

every single time I try to rename a folder the boring message "The action can't be completed because the folder or the file is in use" appears even if apparently neither the folder or a file in it is in use.

What I have to do is: Task Manager > Explorer.exe > End Process > File > New Task > Explorer.exe and I am able to rename the folder.

It is a really boring process and I find this process really stupid. The folders I am trying to rename are full of pictures, I think it is something related to the Thumbs files.

Anybody of you have the same issue? Any possible solution?

Thanks

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?

not positive what it could be ,anything knowing computers .
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.

This is kind of driving me a bit bonkers now, as I am trying to organize the files on my system, and am consistently butting heads against this problem. It always seems to be the last file I highlight. In other words.. I have two directories open on the screen, and am simply looking to drag files/folders from one directory to another. To do this, you almost always have to highlight the folder you want to move, and doing this seems to put a lock on that folder. If I highlight more folders, it seems to be ok, except for the last one I highlight will always fail to copy.

Any way to prevent windows from locking files in this way?

When I try to move a folder into another folder (sub-folders into the main "MY DOCS" folder, I get the error message: "The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open. Close the file and try again."

NO, no other folders are open; went to task manager and made sure. No backup running. I've tried a web search others have had this issue. The suggestion was to empty the temp folder, but this didn't help.

Any advice? This happens for ANY folder I try to dump into the main one.

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.

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:

The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.

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). The action can't be completed blah blah blah. Retry doesn't work. This time I had to close windows explorer and open it again and browse to the folder and rename it.

Sometimes it works first go, sometimes you have to click elsewhere then come back to it, sometimes you have to close explorer, sometimes it simply refuses until I restart the pooter. I've tried deleting everything in the temp folder, (%temp%) but there are files in here which won't delete either coming up with the same message. I guarantee that the f... Read more

Recently an issue has appeared on my laptop, an HP Pvilion G6 running Windows 7 64 bit with SP1 and all latest updates with an Intel Core i5 2.3 processor and 4.Gb RAM.
 
Shortly after booting and arriving at the desktop and before opening any programs a dial up connection window opens with no input from myself, prompting me to choose which service I want to connect to followed soon after by anther window with the title ‘Server Busy’ and the following text. ‘This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy Choose ‘Switch to’ to activate the busy program and correct the problem.’ Beneath this are three buttons, from left to right they’re labelled Switch To… , Retry and Cancel. Cancel is greyed out. Pressing Switch To… opens the start menu, presumably to allow me to select the busy program but there’s no indication of which is the problematic program so I just close the start menu. When the start menu opens the Server Busy window closes briefly but reappears after a second and the loop continues. Pressing the retry button makes the window disappear briefly only to immediately reappear. It seems impossible to get rid of this window.

First, a bit of background. I had just recently installed my Logitech Webcam software, and later on today I've deleted the installer to the recycle bin and am trying to empty the recycle bin. When I do this, I get this message:http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/7600/capturerhf.jpgFirstly, why is this happening in the first place? It's simply an installer? The application itself has installed fine and I should have no problem deleting the installer, right?What does it mean, "because file is open in Application Experience"? What on earth is this?Also, why is the file named "lws201_full.exe", yet in that image I have provided, it's called "$RX8JXFZ.exe"? Also worth noting that the file is 0 bytes in the image I provided, yet the original file itself is 114 MB .

Hi,
I have been googling this for days now - trying several different suggestions - but cannot find a fix!

I am in the midst of tranferring data from old computer (Windows Vista) to new computer (Windows 7 Pro) and was placing folders/files on network drive to do so. For 95% of the items, it worked like a charm - I would copy onto my new computer and then delete them from network drive.

However I am left with 5 folders with a few files in each that I cannot delete! Error message is:
The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program. Close the file and try again.

I've tried renaming, Unlocker, stopped windows from caching thumbnails, and a few more than I can't even remember!

I am not a computer whiz by any means and am afraid to attempt anymore on my own in case I mess something up!!

Any help would be appreciated - I am all googled out!!!

Thanks!

Whenever I try to move or rename files (or anything else that would change something about it), I frequently get the message "The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program." The thing is, it's not open in any program.

It usually happens immediately after it was open, though. It also usually happens with movie files. So, I'll watch a movie file, close WMP and try to change the filename, and it'll give this message. I have to wait for about two or three minutes before I can change it. It's very frustrating to have to wait every time I need to change a file. Is there a way to fix this?

Hello Guys, this is my first post... I've tried searching but couldn't find it, so if it's repeated I'm sorry.

Well the thing is that when I had XP I could override the default way that a folder opens (open new folder on same window or open each folder on separate window) by pressing ctrl while double clicking, I've tried to find a solution for this ever since Vista beta came out, now I just realized that the difference is in the default action for the folders in XP, in vista the default action is to EXPLORE not to OPEN, so when right click and then ctrl+Open the magic comes back! so I started to research on how to change that default action from explore to open, but nothing.

Thank You in Advance!

I try to check on that directory I've mentioned, and I see that if I click on the File Folder, then Advanced button, then I see the Action is only having :

2. Open as notebook in OneNote.
There's no option to make it into Open or Explore, I try to make a new command, named explore, but it became even worse, nothing happen.

Okay. When you double-click on your hard drive or any other folders in My Computer, it opens that drive or folder in the same window of Explorer, right?

When I double-click on a hard drive or folder in my computer, it instead opens a search window. I managed to assign a default action for double-clicking that lets me open the folder or drive in a seperate window, but I can't delete actions that I've tried that don't work. So now, when i right-click on a folder or drive, a bunch of different actions (Such as find, explore, and the ones I made myself) pop up. This happened when I tried to change the icon for drives and folders in the same Edit File Types menu.

In the Edit File Types menu, the options for removing actions or setting the action to browse in the same window are grayed out. So now, I can't set an action to open the folder or drive in the same window, and I can't delete actions that don't work.

Here's how I managed to get the action to open the folder or drive in a seperate window.
1. I went to the Edit File Types menu and selected Drive

2. I clicked on Advanced

3. I clicked on New

4. I selected C:/Windows/Explorer.exe as the program used to perform the action

5. I named the action Explode and set it as default
Now, the window will open in Explorer like it should, but not in the same window. Any help would be appreciated!

Windows XP Home.

Someone has been monkeying with the settings and they all deny it, of course.

Instead of a folder opening in Windows Explorer when it is double-clicked, the Windows Search dialog opens--ALL folders are this way.

How do I set the default action on folders to open the folder instead of running Windows Search?
 

A:Set Default Action when Click on a Folder?

Sometimes after adding the right click with the Explorer, the default setting for opening a folder is changed.
To correct this:

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell
Edit the default value to be explorer or none

You can download a reg file to do this automatically at:

I keep a file folder on my desktop (my FireFox download folder) that just started exhibiting some strange behavior. Instead of opening up like a civilized folder, with a listing of the files, it opens up in full Windows Explorer. So I looked at the folder properties, and the first thing listed was "Explore" and then "Open" ... If I click "Open" it opens up correctly; but if I just double click the folder icon, it does the default option and give me a nice instance of Windows Explorer ... and I have to mouse click down the tree to get to my list of files.

This is on my laptop which sports a week-old refresh of Windows XP/Home.

Unacceptable !!

Any ideas ??
 

A:Strange default action: file folder

'Explore' is the default that I always had. Thought that was standard. Aren't the files listed in the right pane?

Want to change it to 'Open'? In Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, File Types. Scroll down to 'Folder'. (Not 'File Folder'). Click, Advanced. Click, 'Open'. Click, 'Set Default'. OK.

When you drag a file to a folder with the mouse, if you are dragging with left button, in one computer it says, copy to "the destination folder", in another computer (one is Home Premium x64, the other is Ultimate x64) it says, again with the left button, move to "the destination Folder.

Is it a difference between Home Premium and Ultimate?
Can a user define which will be the default action when dragging a file to a folder?

P.S. : I know that the right button gives the options to choose.

A:Choosing the Default Action When Dragging a File to a Folder

You can pick the default action...kinda. You simply edit the desktop.ini file in that folder.


Code:
[.ShellClassInfo]
DefaultDropEffect=#
Replace "#" with one of these numbers:
1 - Copy
2 - Move
4 - Create a shortcut

Be default Windows copies to locations in a different partition and moves in the same partition.

I have amassed hundreds of files that I cannot delete. Generally, the ones that have been on my computer for a long time, I am able to move around, but not to the Recycle Bin and I can't delete them permanently. I've read through hundreds of Google results telling me that I need to turn off or turn on User Account Control, or go into the properties of the file and take ownership of it. Sometimes those techniques (and many others, for example, a forced delete through Command Prompt) work, but only on a few files. Sometimes the problem goes away with a reboot. Sometimes it's as simple as moving it to another directory before deleting it. Sometimes it goes away with time or a whole lot of messing with it. But in the end, I go through enough files each week that I'm left with an inordinate amount that refuse to be deleted.

I originally had UAC off. I figured that there was no point in having it off, so I ended up turning it back on. There has been no difference. Files could not be deleted beforehand, and still, I am unable to delete them now. The same errors come up either way. The only difference is that when UAC is on, there is an extra step before the error where it asks me to continue, as is UAC's purpose.

Going to Properties --> Security and then changing ownership and giving myself full control does nothing. I don't see why it should when I'm the sole user of the computer. Still, I keep trying it and I admit that there are times where... Read more

Hopefully this is in the right place...

I've had my laptop for about a year; without fail every time i move, delete or rename a file or folder or try to create a new folder, explorer freezes and I have to go into task manager and end the process/task. The file/folder always shows up where it is supposed to be after explorer reboots itself, but it is so tedious and painful when I'm trying to get anything done. I stumbled on something on some forum that said third party services are causing it, but I have no idea what this means/how to fix it/etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :-)

A:Vista Freezes When Create New Folder/Move/Delete Action Is Attempted

Hi blg25, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might try running a sfc /scannow command to see if it can find and fix any bad system files that may be the cause of this.

Hello:

I am using windows XP pro with SP2 installed.

I have somehow managed to loose the ability to open folders in the Windows Explorer pane by double clicking on them. Instead, a double click opens the Search Files feature.

How this happened was NOT by altering viewing options.

I recently went to support at microsoft.com to add print directory functionality to Windows Explorer. I found article ID#272623 "how to add the print directory feature to Windows Explorer. The url for this article is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/272623/en-us?FR=1&PA=1&SD=HSCH

I followed the instructions as closely as I could although it wasn't exactly the same as described.

That is:
after clicking on 'tools' in explorer clicking on 'Folder Options' then 'File Types' and then 'File Folder' I could not find the edit button.
I clicked on ADVANCED then NEW and found the 'New Action' dialog box.
I entered "Print Directory Listing" in the 'Action' box and browsed until I found the file I had created as instructed by the above article.
I then clicked OK and backed out of the rest of the windows.

I tried to undo what I had done but to no avail as I cannot remove the 'Print Directory Listing' action from the list in the advanced File Folder TAB. The edit button is greyed out as is the remove button.

Does anyone know how to remove an action, and after that restoring the ability to open folders in ... Read more

Action Center on my Win 10 64-bit PC sometimes works correctly and posts messages when an event occurs, e.g. an email being delivered or a USB stick being removed from a port. At other times though, the messages may not be displayed until 10 - 60 minutes after the event.

Also, should displayed messages be retained in Action Center at all? Is there a log?

Can anyone advise?

Last week I found my way here from answers.microsoft.com...cant-turn-on-action-center after unsatisfactory dealings with Dell and McAfee. At least I didn't have to pay McAfee NOT to solve my problem. Many hours and days later, first a thank you to all on this site who posted on the topic in mid-December and whose counsel was invaluable to me watching from the sidelines. That's now a closed forum and I need a little more help.

So far I've followed all of the good advice, ten steps worth, and removed Win32/Sirefef!cfg and Win 32/Sirefef.P along with a Rogue rootkit virus and minor mal/adware. My computer is running faster and better than it has in a long time. The only lingering problem is that I cannot recover Action Center which has been replaced by an also inop WSCS, neither of which can be turned back on again by any of many methods I've tried including turning System Restore off then on again and other fixes, none of which have solved this problem.

I have a line of code copied to my desktop to install in the Registry but I'm uncomfortable doing it (as it's well beyond my experience). That code to be saved in Notepad and merged with the .reg extension is: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellServiceObjects\{F56F6FDD-AA9D-4618-A949-C1B91AF43B1A}] "AutoStart"="" The explanation is that doing this will restore Action Center and all will be well!

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

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.

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 ?

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

What do you recommend ?

Hello ,

here is a shot in the dark

turn your system on & then back off

then un plug your system

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

then try your system

you may be looking at wipeing the driver & reinstalling

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

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?

A:New netbook setup not completed,

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.

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.

Hi
 
Looking for some help resolving this issue. Computer was acting strange. Scanned with Norton 360 and Malwarebytes and found nothing. Ran TDSSkiller, found and removed a rootkit. Now, when I try to  run Combofix, it stops at Stage 48. The hard drive light is solid, so I figured it would eventually complete, but it does not.
 
Can you help?

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!

Hello,

This is a follow-up to my original thread here -

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ease-help.html

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.

Appreciate all your help !

Your dumps indicate conflicts and memory corruption. Uninstall Symantec using this removal tool: Tool. Many third party security programs create conflicts with Win 7 and Norton is no exception. Norton was involved in one of the crashes. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials. It will not cause conflicts. Make sure Windows firewall is turned on.

Uninstall or upgrade CyberLink. Its driver, 000.fcl, Fri Sep 26 09:11:22 2008, is out of date. Outdated drivers can and do cause conflicts and BSOD's.

I find another slightly out of date driver loaded on your system. Update this driver from the link provided.

I apologize if this forum is meant for tech people as I'm a novice computer user, but I really need help.  I have Windows 7 x64 and I used RoboCopy for the first time, and have messed up royally.  I was trying to copy folders and files from my
computer to an external hard drive.  My external hard drive had important files and folders on it already, and I thought that copying more data using RoboCopy would just add to it, but it deleted everything that was on the external hard drive when it
copied the additional data.  
Can I undo what just happened?  Is there any way to revert?  Or maybe there's some way to recover that deleted data?
I used:  Robocopy C:\Users\Name\Documents F:/MIR /dcopy:T
I would be really grateful to be helped.  Thanks in advance.

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.

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.

Hi I just completed my second homebuild, I installed windows 7 pro and have been running it for over two weeks now, (got it pre release from msdna for free, thats right free, gotta love being a student, as many copies of 7, vista, xp and visual studio, and tons of other cool software for nada.)

BUT it only lists one hdd in the my computer section and that is the drive that i installed windows on, I don't know if the other one is formatted or not, I would say not, the bios recognises both of them, but my computer displays only one, i have not used raid in any form. Whats the solution?


Thanks alot, bob.

months ago i downloaded a .exe (then uninstalled) to upload videos on youtube and from that time:

i downloaded combofix and let it run. everything seems worked correctly, but now i don't know how to proceed.

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?

Enforcing Business Rules with Triggers
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.

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'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.

If you get your issue solved, please report back.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I Googled & found nothing.

Perhaps this phone number will help.

I am new user so please forgive if I do not do this well. Problem is in excel I have my formulas entered just fine (simple, like C5*D5). however if I change valu in C5, the correct value is not displayed immediately, not until I hit save. It would be great if someone could explain this. Thanks
 

A:excel- have to hit save to see operations completed

1st aid:
From menu select : Tools -> Options
Select Calculation tab
It should be set to Automatic, and I suspect yours is set to Manual.

And by completed the steps i mean i wasnt able to partially do any of the five steps

Step 1: I cant access the add/remove programs option on the control panel, it comes up with this message.

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel.

Step 2: I cant use email on the computer, keeps saying cookies are disabled even though i put it to allow all.

Step 3: Well i never cleaned the system so why bother trying to install these programs? I probably wouldnt be able to install them anyway.

Step 4: When i go to the update site, it says it cant continue because one of the following programs isnt working
Automatic Updates
BITS
event log
i follow there directions, my computer refuses to allow me to enable automatic updates

Step 5: im not downloading that program because the way it looks im gonna have restore my system

so is my system completly messed up or can you guys help me out?

I am running windows vista and a couple months back I got the Antivirus Action and used the guides here to rid the problem successfully. Twice. Thanks for the guides.

I got Antivirus Scan now and I went through the steps in the guide for this issue. Unfortunately I am still infected. I have tried the process again, however RKill and MBAM find nothing. I am able to run in Safe Mode (which I am doing now). When I first start safe mode Firefox does not attempt to use the proxy (and does not need the setting changed) IE does still require the proxy fix.

I'm hoping to avoid completely restoring the system...any advice? Thank you.

Computer goes through it's diagnostics, Dell splash screen, and finally the complete desktop appears. After 15 seconds, the computer shuts down. The power is still on as I can open and close the dvd tray. After waiting approx. 30 minutes, I am able to start the computer and the same thing happens. I have tried replacing the main power supply and the main fan circulation air over the CPU. Any ideas or suggestions?

When updating to Windows 10 Anniversery Update (1607) everything goes fine till the first restart of the computer.Nothing happens even if you wait for about 8 hours. The screen is blank and the keyboard does not respond. After having turned of the computer and started it again you get the information: "Restore the earlier version of Windows..."  (Windows10 for home use).

Just got this message no matter how many times I ran backup today.

I've run it every Sunday afternoon since June of 2012 and never got the message before.
edit: Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Joseph T. Adinolf\Contacts. ErrorThe system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

Am I just wasting my time?

Using an external hard drive.

I would appreciate your comments.

A:Backup completed but some files were skipped

Hello Joseph,

This error means that one or more folders that you selected to be included when you setup Windows Backup is no longer available to be backed up. Thus, it was skipped while backing up the others.

You can use step 4 in the tutorial below to "Change settings" in your Windows Backup to uncheck any included (checked) folders that have been deleted or moved.

Afterwards, you should stop getting this error.

Backup User and System Files

Hope this helps,
Shawn
