  1. I recently was forced to install the 1709 Windows 10 Fall Creator's Edition, and ever since then Windows Defender is my main AV. I already paid for PCMatic to be my AV, but I can't somehow make it my default. I cannot deactivate Windows Defender or turn on PCMatic via the conventional method of going in the Control Panel. I see Windows Defender and PCMatic Super shield in the 'Secutiry Maintenance' box but the button to turn on PCMatic is greyed out. I thought WD deactivated itself when there was another 3rd party AV installed. It has worked before and WD was deactivated, but ever since the update, it will not turn off and I think it is slowing my computer down. Thanks
  2. Hi, After from time to time facing and got struggling with the problem with OverDrive, not loading the ActiveX and got stuck on the first blank test window on ajaxscan, here you have some hints to be checked: -> Internet Explorer 11 -> Tools -> ActiveX-filtering -> Off -> Internet Settings -> General -> Browsing History -> Delete (with the first and last setting ticked -> Off(?)) -> Security -> Internet -> Default (Medium) -> Trusted Sites -> www pcpitstop.com -> Add If the above do not solve the problem, you may try also these hints: -> Tools -> Add-ons -> Critical ones -> Off (e.g. pop-up blockers etc.) -> Internet Settings -> General -> Browsing History -> Settings -> Show Objects -> Delete old PC Pitstop Components -> Security -> Internet -> Modified -> Allow ActiveX-filtering -> Off -> Run malware checking on ActiveX -> Off -> Enable pop-up blocking -> Off (seen somewhere lower there) -> Advanced Options -> Set options to default -> Set IE11 into default settings Addition 18.09.2017: -> Disable Virus Scanner and/or Firewall Addition 26.04.2018: For the case ActiveX not coming up for loading at all, it maybe due to, that there is no Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder existing, so, please, -> Add it there, lol ... Good luck on troubleshooting! Best regards, PeteVfi
  3. i was trying to download a plugin for sony vegas, but it gave me an error message saying " C:\Users\Aaron\Desktop\clips for videos\mlg plugins is unavailable " . so i guessed it was a problem with sony vegas. i re-downloaded after effects so that i could use that instead to edit but it gave me the same message. the "mlg plugins" file was a plugin i downloaded for sony vegas and installed, but later deleted the file aswell as the "clips for videos" folder. if anyone could help me out with fixing this error i would appreciate it
  4. Hello fellow users. I have an HP Pavillion with windows 10. last night my pc was running fine and this morning when I turned it on my screen was black and "disk read error, press ctl/alt/delete to restart" was written on the screen. When I do that it continues to return to that page, I am unable to access anything because my mouse is in my keypad and basically it is frozen in that mode. I am thinking maybe the safe mode but how in the heck do I find that in this mode. Also, the Windows icon plus "R" does not bring up the search box or allow me to do anything. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!!
  5. Hello, PCMatic has been running flawlessly, as has the the upgrade to W10. However last night I got this error on the screen; When I clicked okay it had killed the program, so I ran it again and it appeared to start normally. Anyone else run into this ? ________ Dean
  6. I created a new partition, followed all instructions exactly, and got burned a DVD form the .iso. It loads and then when I click Install, I get the error message, "Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the installation source are valid and restart the installation." Googling that error message gives suggestions about how to fix it on a VM. Nothing about installing it on an actual hard drive.
