keychain access and icloud not responding

Q: keychain access and icloud not responding

After trying to connect my daughters reminder app to sync on icloud with the desktop entries, the keychain access appeared on the admin user account. The keychain logins keep appearing. I went to system preferences to turn off the keychain. Each time I go into keychain, icloud, or internet access, it freezes. I am not able to pull up safari. I have tried several things with no solution.

We have a Mac desktop on OSX 10.10.5 .

I cannot follow STEP 1: Remove adware and browser hijackers from Safari, Google Chrome and Firefox because safari won't respond. I can't do STEP 2: Remove adware with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac because the desktop won't access safari.

I have no idea if my issue is related to a malware issue. If it's not a malware problem, please accept my apology. I'm really not sure what else to try and thought I would ask here in the event someone knows of a solution.

My boss and I used very successfully for his calendar and contacts, but awhile back when he upgraded he was moved to, and I can no longer access the site from work. It is not blocked by the firewall, and the browser (firefox) works fine going to any other site. The error I get is: The proxy server is refusing connections.
Nothing has been changed on the browser settings and the browser works fine otherwise. I'm lost without access to this site.

A:Can't access

I can get to that site with both my Opera and Firefox browsers but, when I do, it makes it clear that I will need a device (iphone or iPad?) with iOS 5 or a Mac computer with OS X to setup my Apple ID and access it.

I don't know anything about proxy servers but it sounds like it is something your workplace setup or ISP may be using. Is there anyone in your office that deals with techie stuff who might be able to help?

Another possibility is that using the Windows version of Apple's Safari browser might help, but that's complete guesswork on my part; (although it does state that it works with iCloud).

Windows update has not been able to download updates for some time. I am also having difficulty accessing secure websites (on any browser) such as icloud, paypal, and capital one.

I'm having trouble with my photo keychain (from When I plug it in (usb), the software in it should start, so I can up/download photo's. But now it seems to hang. I can move the mouse (with the 'waiting' icon), but the photosoftware doensn't start, or it's unable to. It also has problems accessing certain menu's from Start. I guess because it's busy trying to start the software. In Devices it does ad a usb storage device). When I unplug it, everything works ok again.

I've tried uninstalling the usb driver. When I plug it in it gives messages about installing them again. But the same happens after that.
Also tried different usb ports. My other usb stuff (printer, camera, memory stick) works just fine. It's just my photo keychain which hangs on it's photo software, so it seems.

At work it boots the software just fine. So what could block it at home? Using windows xp.

You need the software for it, originally supplied on a mini-CD with the product apparently, but I can find no place to download it from. I wouldn't be too disappointed though as from what I've been reading, owners are far from impressed with it. Various and numerous issues like software wouldn't install, installs but doesn't actually work etc etc.

A:RED digital photo viewer for keychain

Most small digital picture viewers, like your key-chain one, do not need anything special on your computer. They just plug into the USB port and it appears as an external flash drive. Any downsizing, or cropping, or rotating would be done on another device, like your home computer. You just get the photos you want in the size and other modifications you want and then load the finished files into the correct folder of your plugged in digital viewer.

The more basic the digital viewer, the more you have to do externally.

By the way, SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) numbers are not useful outside of the company that is selling and stocking the device.

The "RED digital photo viewer for keychain" is actually more definitive in trying to find on the Internet, but there are a lot of devices that match that description. A company name and a little more detail would be better yet.

I got one of those keychain sized USB drives that are supposed to be recognized as a removable drive by Win 2K.
I plugged into the same USB port that I download my digital camera to, but my machine will not recognize it as a removable drive. Both camera and drive are Fujifilm brand.
Strangely enough, the icon to remove the device appears on the right side of the tray.

The device came with a CD that is only required for a Win 98 installation - all later versions are not supposed to require any special drivers.

Even more strangely, the device works fine on my machine at work - also Win 2K.

Any ideas?


A:Keychain-size USB drive won't install

You probably have some issues with the USB installation on your machine. One thing that sometimes fixes this issue:

- Unplug ALL USB devices.
- Open Device Manager, and remove all of the USB hub devices.
- Reboot and let Windows discover the hardware again.
- Try your USB device again.

Hi i got a gift....FC digital photo viewer keychain it did not have a cd with it. first time when i connected to the usb and computer it was working and i loaded the pictures then i did not use it for 3 months. now when i connected it with the USB it is not charging and the computer is not even detecting the digital photo viewer. please help

A:digital photo viewer keychain

Welcome to TSG.
If you connected the chain per USB, it will show up in Explorer as Photoviewer. (as a drive in XP) You don't need a cd.
There is a zip file, but I clicked on the Photoviewer.exe file and the program comes up with a panel to move pictures from any folder.
Maybe you have to wait first, till it recharges the built-in battery, see how far the bar is on the viewer when plugged into the computer. I have successfully transferred pictures to it.
When not plugged in, you have to turn it on and push the arrows up or down to see the pictures.

I just received a keychain with pictures already on it of my great grand kids. I want to copy them to my Win7 PC. It wants me to format the keychain first. Won't I lose all the pictures if I format it? Since I don't have the software on my machine already I can't do anything.

A:Digital Photo Keychain Won't Load software

The "Digital Photo Keychain", a pocket-sized digital photo frame, is (or should be) supplied with driver software on a CD when bought new. You need to install this driver software in order to transfer the pics to your PC.

Some brands of photo keychains already have the driver software built-in but it looks like yours doesn't.
Ask the person who gave you it if they have it's software.

Definitley DO NOT format it. That will make all the pictures disappear!

Lenovo Ideapad y560, windows 7
Medialink wifi router, MODEL: mwn-wapr150n
intel wifi link 1000 BGN
I'm trying to connect to a Medialink wifi router from this laptop but after finding and connecting to it, it shows as No Internet Access. When I try to access a web page, it says DNS Not Responding. I have been able to access it before from this laptop. I am currently able to access this particular wifi spot from other devices. I am unsure if this laptop is able to access other wifi spots besides my own.

Things began to act weird after I tried changing the network name from the Network and Sharing Center by clicking on the 'House' icon, changing the network name to something besides the given router name, and pressing ok.

Since then, I have reset the router. I have checked to make sure DNS is automatically retrieved. When that didn't work, I gave it a public DNS to pull from, but that didn't work so I reverted to Auto DNS. I have enabled netbios over TCP/IP. I have flushed all caches. Nothing.

I don't have McAfee installed, only MSE.

I switched from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro, so I could utilize the iCloud that comes with my iPad & iPhone 5. It was said I could sync all the devices; which I can, but the colors invert when I click "Open iCloud Control Panel".
The colors invert after the monitor changes to another phase & the screen flips. I went through the trouble shooting prompts & I thought that it was going to clear up. It didn't.
I know that it wants me to setup Outlook, but I already use Thunderbird?
What advice can anyone give from this forum.
Thanks ahead of time.
And I attached the screenshot to illustrate the color change.
I did try the 16bit setting.

Still no bites?
I went ahead & called the maker of the video card, NVIDIA & they said it was an OS problem. Of course Microsoft said it was Apple's & then not to be the only one fixing the blame, Apple said it was a Microsoft problem.
Anyway, took it to the local computer nerd store & they say that iCloud is changing the resolution. The service tech went right in & adjusted the resolution through iCloud, but when clicked on again, the resolution & the colors invert.
I wonder if it makes a difference of what browser that is used, to download iCloud on?

I'm trying to install iCloud on my Windows XP Pro (SP3) PC. Officially it's supported only for Vista and later, but this hack is widely claimed to work:1. Open iCloudSetup.exe file and unzip its files including iCloud.msi2. Navigate to and open the iCloud.msi with Orca.3. In the left table select LaunchCondition. Then change in the right table ?VersionNT> = 600? to ?VersionNT> = 200? and Save.4. Run modified iCloud.msi and install.5. Run iCloud Control Panel, located in the Windows Control Panel, and set up as you want.I tried that promising solution in vain. It seemed to successfully install iCloud, but whenever I try to run it I get this obscure error much fruitless searching I've not found out how to proceed from there and would appreciate advice please.-- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

I bought a WD My Passport 1TB awhile back, now i got problems. It worked fine until recently and i have tried different compuiters with no luck, and that tells me something is wrong with the drive.

When i plug it in, Windows recognizes it and i hear the sound. The LED on the drive keeps blinking and nothing happens for 3-4 minutes. Then it shows up under Computer as simply "Local Disk (K:)" like this screenshot shows:

Then if i right click on it to get the drop menu or try to open it, the window stops responding. Like this:

Is there a way (when I send a link to someone so they can download my files) that they can download a whole folder, rather than image by image. I've made a folder and put photos in that folder. I sent a link to myself to see how it worked. When the link is clicked, it takes me to the images (rather than just the folder itself). From there, I can only download each one, one by one. This would take quite some time to do as most of what I'm uploading in a folder has as many as 50 images/photos.

I have windows 7 and outlook 2010 on a PC. When linking to icloud and enabling it to synch with icloud, icloud took the contacts off my computer (at least it seems that way). In trying to resolve the issue and talking with Apple and Omnitech, a variety of solutions were tried. I now have all my contacts in the right categories showing up on my PC, but it appears that they are not on the PC but in the cloud. My goal is to copy one of my categories, mailing list, into a  new separate folder in the folder list in order to use it to merge with Word and make labels. In the past, I could right click on the mailing list category and drag it to the new folder that I created. It would then ask if I wanted it to copy the file there or move it. I copied it to the new folder and then was able to merge it with word. Currently, when I try to drag the file to the folder, it indicates that this action can not be done. It appears to me that the reason this is occurring is that the contact file is in the cloud not on the computer.  ?? I would like to create a file with my contacts on the PC with the contacts in the right categories and not duplicating what is currently showing up from the cloud. I believe once I do this I will again be able to copy the category to the new folder.

I have many Access 2003 adp apps that are front ends to Sql Server 2000 and 2005 databases. They are form based applications. I recently got a new Vista 64 bit machine and installed Office 2007. When I open any Access 2003 adp, Access show Not Responding and nevers opens the initial form. If I open the same adp with the Shift Key down (so the initial form doesn't automatically open), then it loads the adp. At this point I can double click the initial form and it will run (most of the time but some times it still shows Not Responding and never comes up). This also happens with very a simple 2003 mdb app linked to tables in another 2003 mdb (I always separate the app from the data in mdbs). When I open with the Shift Key, I open the form successfully. I even converted the adp to an accdb (2007's version) and get the same Not Responding problem. I can't find anything on this on the web. Anyone out there seen this???
Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Access 2007 opening 2003 adp hangs with Not Responding

It sounds like the form or it's VBA was Corrupted during the opening (and Conversion) by 2007. This has appeared on this forum a few times before. I think that the only thing that you can do is Convert the Database to Access 2007 and then Re-create the problem form.
You could also try opening a blank Access 2007 database, import everything form the problem database in to the new one, save it, close it and then Compact & Restore it.
But I wouldn't hold your breath while you are doing it.

I have Pages loaded on my iPad and iPod Touch and am having problems in getting documents to sync between the two devices via iCloud.
Both devices are running iOS 5.
If I create a document on say my iPod Touch it saves the document which I can see ( a blue status bar moves a cross the document) also the top right portion of the document peels back showing an arrow which I assume meant that the document was being backed up to the Cloud.

When I fire up Pages on my iPad however no document is there. I'm not sure what is going wrong. If I create the document on my iPad to start with then,as before, it does not sync accross to my iPod Touch. In addition when saving documents on iPad there is not the blue status bar as there was when saving on iPod Touch.

Is there something I am doing wrong as everything I have seen seems to show that the syncing of documents in Pages via the Cloud should be automatic. I should also say that I have also set Pages to work via the Cloud in the settings menu of both devices.

Yep, looked everywhere on TSG but can't seem to find a suite dedicated to iCloud issues - this is as close as I can get but apologies if it is off subject here ..................... more than happy to move it if one of the Mods can tell me where to go!

Anyhow, just a quick post to express my total lack of understanding with iCloud - part of a big club from what I can see on Google!

I use iCloud for all my calendars and have been using the different colour calendars for specific events etc. such as say "red" for birthdays. "green" for appointments and to date have had no problems.

After a recent windows update (I think) I now find that ALL the colour calendars are visible on the left hand side of the calendar page when viewed on Outlook 07 with every one of the seven colours all having a tick in the box inside them and therefore of course displaying every one of them on the main viewing window on the right side.

I don't even have my default "calendar" anymore though the "anniversaries" calendar shows everything I have scheduled. Naturally, as I "uncheck" each colour calendar on the left, those on the right are removed PLUS their contents from what appears to be my default calendar (anniversaries)

How do I get back to just having the one basic iCloud calendar showing whilst still having the coloured ones in the background should I wish to just pull ONE of them up?

This does not appear a great explanation but hope... Read more

Greetings! I'm a new member and this is my first post - bare with me.

I'm curious if any of you have had issue with Access 2007 on Vista in a multi-user environment. I recently upgraded a clients office from XP to Vista and also upgraded their MS office package to 2007. (They were previously using office 2000).

Their CRM was located within an Access 2000 MDB. Since the installation, the database was upgraded from MDB to ACCDB (2000 to 2007). The database is located on a 2000 server which is a trusted location within the new trust 'feature' of Access. Database size is ~100mb, network is 1000mb.

Performance previously was nearly instant. Since the upgrade, the application will stop responding when switching back and forth between windows (say Internet Explorer then back to Access) for several seconds. Queries that took 1 second now take 45.

I'm kind of stumped at the moment. With one user in the database it works just fine. Performance degrades the more users open the database. I'm sure it has something to do with security settings (either on vista, in the new version of access or both). Please respond if you've ran into a similar issue or can point me in the right direction.


A:Access 2007 Not Responding When Multiple Users In Database (vista)

Jake the problem isn't your access, it is your network. Vista has a dynamically adjusting IP setting. This is a common problem with Vista/2000 Server. Copy to a command file and right click "run as Administrator" or login in as administrator and start, run, cmd. Type in the dos window.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and MicroSoft Office 10 on my desktop computer, use Outlook for email and contacts, used to use the Outlook calendar till I got an iPhone 5S a few months ago, so now my calendar is the iCloud calendar, viewed in Outlook. The notes section of iCloud calendar entries uses very tiny font that is barely visible. I cannot find a way to change the font in the iCloud calendar in Outlook. There is no "format text" tab in the iCloud calendar to choose font type and size, like there is in the Outlook calendar. I spoke to Apple, who said this is a MicroSoft issue. I don't find anything regarding this when I Google "font size icloud calendar". I realize I can highlight the notes and make them larger with the mouse so I can read them on the desktop, but I would prefer to set my default font as a larger size.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate any help I can get.


A:iCloud calendar notes font size

It does seem that this is a problem with the iCloud & Outlook. The forum below discusses this issue & there are no really complete solutions, but there are some work arounds that you could try.

I believe that my Email account is too large in size since and I can only receive emails. I can not send emails. I contacted Yahoo and that is what they think has happened. I tried to find the size of data on my email account with to no avail. I thought that when I download the icloud that it would fix the problem. However, before I do so, I would like to know what information I would loose upon downloading the Microsoft icloud.

Donald B. W. Clark your yahoo email account is supposed to have 1TB storage, so are you sure your storage is full? And you should still be able to send emails. Try deleting some older ones
icloud is a service from Apple, not Microsoft. Can you check what it is that you're actually looking for?

Since I have Office 2013 w/ Outlook installed, I also have the preinstalled basic Outlook that comes to Win 8. So I guess according to iTunes I need to uninstall the generic Outlook, yet I do not see it under the control panel, where you modify or delete apps.

Any suggestions?

I have a new Windows 10 laptop and I have migrated most everything from my previous laptop that I wanted and everything has been working pretty good up to now. I use Outlook 2007 for POP3 email and had installed in on the new LT and moved my PST and all was working good with email, contacts and calendar after much help from here: Yesterday I decided to move my iTunes from the old LT to the new LT and I installed ITunes and ICloud on the new LT and synced it with my iPhone 6. Thought all was well until this morning when I'm checking my POP3 email account. All my email downloaded no problem and I was able to read everything. When I went to send email I found that iCloud had emptied my Contacts and replaced it with iCloud contacts which essentially is the ones that I had on my phone. (My iPhone contacts are still there.) If I click the "To" field in the email it does bring up my outlook contacts that I had on my computer before the iCloud debacle and it does let me select them. However when I send them I get an immediate undeliverable message from system administrator saying:
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

A:iCloud Creating Duplicate Bookmarks - Due to Win 8.1 Sync?

The only thing I would look at is to only use one cloud service if that is your suspect.

I am not hinting to use icloud but that is simple to stop by just removing the application. If you chose to use icloud this is how to disable onedrive.

I disabled a number of Services in Windows 7 as an optimization step using services.msc Doing so stopped iCloud synchronization with my iPhone 4s. Rather than reset them all, I'd like to see if anyone knows exactly which services are needed for iCloud to function. Thanks in advance.

A:What Windows 7 Services are required for iCloud to work?

Bonjour, iPod Service, and AppleMobileDevice. I recommend not to disable Services (definitely not following BlackViper's guide or if you do not know what your doing) it is not safe.

Then click on CCleaner's Uninstall Tab and remove anything you don't need or use. Ask here if you are unsure if it is safe to remove or not, or you could Google it.

I hope I'm in Windows 7 forum.

Like a fool I dowloaded iCloud and sent all my contacts to iCloud. Now, when I open a contact and make a notation then want to enter a reminder, I get the message "the item is in a folder that does not support reminders". Well, something like that. How can I go back to the way it was - without iCloud? I don't want iCloud. All the help is on Apple forum and I own a PC.

Can you help?

I wouldn't mind if all my information were on iCloud AND on my laptop.

I am running outlook 7 windows 7.

In the past, the problem was that the send date above emails in the to send folder said "none" and the email topic was bold faced, and not regular in italics. It will not send.

I resolved this [and SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN IT DOWN] by going to the trust center and I believe disabling the icloud item.

HOWEVER: subsequent to all this, I finally figured out how to sync my outlook calender [not outlook contacts, cloud contacts and iphone5 phone contacts are synced.

HOWEVER, the original problem is back, and windows shows that only calendar in icloud is synced, not "calendar" and not whatever "calendar from icloud in icloud" [just uncheck both and I eliminate dupes]

IF i start screwing around in the trust center and disabling the "icloud outlook ad-in", which I know played a role in getting the send to work, will I eliminate that "calendar in icloud" that continues to works so well? And if so, how do I get it back to sync with iphone 5?

A:How to fix a send issue WITHOUT screwing up my sync to icloud

Like you I am running Outlook 7 under Windows 7, 64 bit, and have version 3, the latest, for the iCloud control panel. And, like you, I have long ceased to attempt any kind of sync for anything other than the calender. If you go into the trust center and disable the icloud add in outlook will cease to sync with icloud. Indeed, only yesterday I ran a test: I added an appointment to my iphone and it did not appear on my outlook calendar. I had disabled the icloud add in before it was the only way to get anything to send from the outbox. As soon as I re enabled it the appointment appeared, only now I had the email issue.

It is interesting to note that when I went into the account settings in outlook to be sure the problem wasn't there, I was able to send the test message without issue, so it have to believe that all my pop server numbers are correct and the problem lies with the add in. Apple support blame Microsoft, who blames Apple. As with this entry, no almost a year old, I have never gotten any answers from this forum.

Should you have learned how to handle the issue, please let me know.

So...I can connect the iCloud account just fine in account settings.  However, it doesn't show up in Calendar or Mail as an account I can view, yet it still shows up as properly connected in Settings.  Suggestions?  A quick google hasn't helped as it just suggested workarounds that result in read-only (not ideal) or things Ive already tried with no luck.

A:iCloud and Windows 10 native Calendar/Mail app

Posting solution here.  If you have 2-step verification enabled on iCloud, you must log into iCloud -> account -> security/password -> generate app specific password and use that for Windows.  It synced immediately after deleting and relinking iCloud account with that new app specific password.
