  1. I had aero glass for win 8.1 installed on my computer, and when I updated my computer to windows 8.1 update 1, the login screen was broken with the message "Your DWM is not compatible with aero glass", making my windows installation unusable. i restarted several times, and windows update finally began undoing the changes made and i could login again. i tried uninstalling aero glass from control panel programs and features but when i run the uninstaller an error message pops up saying "the uninstall log file 'c:/aeroglass/unins000.dat' is in a format not recognized by this version of the uninstaller. cannot uninstall." any one experiencing the same problem? any solutions to fix the uninstaller?

  4. Good Morning all, I'm having an issue with a Win 8.1 box that constantly crashes every few seconds when accessing the desktop, or anything else that needs the desktop to run. The error in the Application log is: Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.3.9600.16441, time stamp: 0x5265dec8 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.3.9600.16496, time stamp: 0x52b3f283 Exception code: 0xc06d007e Fault offset: 0x0000000000005a88 Faulting process id: 0x5bc Faulting application start time: 0x01cf47721bd5b117 Faulting application path: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\KERNELBASE.dll Report Id: 5c05ffbc-b365-11e3-beaf-7054d27f87a0 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: So far the troubleshooting I have done so far is: Restored to an earlier date that did not have the issue. Created a new Windows Profile. Updated the system drivers. So far, no change. Researching the issue online points to analyzing the crash dump. I have uploaded one to the following location: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=807BB7EC55C6E53E!107&authkey=!ACgpngBQ98E7TG8&ithint=file%2c.rar I would be very appreciative if someone is able to do so, I'd rather not keep shooting in the dark if I can help it. Thanks! -Kyle
  5. I tried to go to creativx.net many times but the website is not available! Any ideas?
  6. How do I get rid of the rectangle background on title bar instead of installing Big Muscle Aero Glass?
  7. I'm having weird problems with folder icons. Desktop.ini contains the following: [.ShellClassInfo]IconResource=c41af100-6b25-4a2d-91ac-815a04daf3ea.ico,0The corresponding icon is present in the folder - but the folder icon stays default. The funny thing is, setting the icon with a program (folderhighlight) works, copying the folder anywhere keeps the icon as expected. However, copying the working set of desktop.ini+.ico to another folder doesn't make it display the icon.What am I missing? I tried clearing iconcache.db in my appdata and rebooting, but no change. edit: I really hate it when I find the answer right after asking for help... As stated here, you have to set attrib +s foldername for any folder you want the desktop.ini to work with. edit2: Actually, attrib +r foldername is enough. Interesting requirement.
  8. I keep discovering broken processes in the Windows 8.1 task scheduler. Besides these two the latest one I found is in the "Windows Backup" task folder, using the command %systemroot%\System32\sdclt.exeTo find out if you have this issue, launch Windows Task Manager and see if you have several instances of sdclt.exe that cannot be terminated. This is apparently a known issue with Windows 8.1 that some users have attributed to the Intel Proset network drivers. But my PC had the issue even though my motherboard does not have the Intel Proset NIC. To fix sdclt.exe from sapping my memory, I disabled it: Open Windows Task Scheduler, drill down to the Windows Backup task folder, right click on ConfigNotification in the Task Window, and select "disable". I also disabled the associated Windows Service: "Block Level Backup Engine Service" at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wbengine and set the "start" parameter to "4" to shut it off. Taking these steps will interfere with Windows backup. So I would not recommend it for those who rely on Windows restore functions or whose PC's aren't afflicted by multiple instances of sdclt.exe. But for those of you using a third party backup solution (as I do) and who have the sdclt.exe problem, I can report that my system has more free memory and is a lot more stable after disabling the process.
  9. I need help with this BSOD minidump from my windows 8.1 desktop. When teh system crashed, I think there was a message on the screen about a USB failure, but I don't remember the specifics. Can anyone advise me how to fix this issue? If it is caused by USB, is the crash due to a USB device or a USB controller/driver/software? The minidump information is below and my system is as follows: Homemade Desktop Windows 8.1 ASUS X79-deluxe MB Intel core i7 4790K 16GB ram (Team Extreem Quad channel DDR3 2400mhz) Nvidia GTX 770 Thanks
  10. Well, why repost this when it's available on news sites? Because I want the community here to know. This will be included in the upcoming Patch Tuesday, so you can install it then if you wish. But Microsoft has made the patch available. This is only for Windows 8.1. It should solve the mouse lag issue in Source Games and Call of Duty, and possibly even more games. Cannot hurt to install it, but to be safe, as always have a backup, at least a system restore point. Have fun, guys!
