The Start Up says go to the Task Window...The Task Window does not have a Disable all selection...went back to the misconfig and selected do not use start in a continuous reboot stage with no solid activity drive light...should I just use the Power Off Switch to turn it off?
yes.. but this indicates an underlying problem..

Turn if off, via power switch, than on, and check if the startup items are still disabled please

Yes they all came I have no wifi connectivity and error message says The Dianostics Policy Service is not running?
Go back to MSCONFIG

Are all the Services running as well?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes...they all appear to be running
ok, restart the computer again, does it connect to wifi?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no it did not
ok, than there is a serious issue on this computer due to this problem, SFC and CHKDSK not running

First, press windows Key + R and type in SYSTEM RESTORE and press enter

Perform a restore from the last restore point

Let me know if it does not connect to wifi after doing this please

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I got some real issues...system restore will not start up due to a previous program callled Shadow Portect which is no longer installed on this PC...produces an error window when I go there something about the System Protect and check the log files
yes, lots.

Can we reinstall this computer? It is going to be the long term solution for you.

You will lose all data so you need to backup first.

If you do not know how to reinstall, please tell me the make and model of the computer

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes,,,I was sensing this was coming...possible to do from the Windows 8 CD ROM
yes correct

You put in the disk, and it should than start the process

Let me know if you have difficulties please

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have the pc in safe mode...what can I try here
how do you mean Steve? Is this during the re-installation?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Not yet...there is a way to disable all the start apps in WIN 8 called safe mode which I am in now

We did this via MSCONFIG

Safe Mode is windows without any start apps so you have this done already. This will not resolve the problem, else I would have done this.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Ok...will resinstall windows...unfortuantely my WIN 8 Key is buried in my Outlook pst file and now Outlook will not open up

ok, press Windows KEY + R and type in

outlook.exe /safe

It should open then

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

MS is saying now that Office is not I am running the Repair Again...not sure if this will work

ok, let me know how it goes.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The Repair did not work...will need to move that pst file over to my desktop...working on saving everything I can to my external hard drive...will keep you in the loop

Thanks Steve

Customer: replied 4 years ago. the WIN 8 Pro loaded back up after finally giving up on MS to give me a Key Code and loading up my pst on my desktop...Question...How do I get my pc to be trusted...I see the flag from MS but it makes no sense to me when I click on the link...Please Advise

How do you mean Trusted?

What is the exact message it gives?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

"Trust this PC"...not really an error but a Windows Flag in the action center...when I log into my desktop which is a Trusted PC I can see my laptop listed but regardless of what I do on my laptop the flag never goes away

ok, I would ignore that, I have never bothered with it and no problems.

Unless it is causing you problems?
