Installed an Windows 8.1 update yesterday; Now coputer freezes when trying to print from Adobe Reader.  Can print from MS word

Installed a Windows 8.1 update yesterday; now computer freezes when trying to print from Adobe Reader XI.  Still can print a word document from MS Word.

Was already running latest version 11.0.10.  Tried the re-load fix; tried uninstalling and installing a new one from the web.  Problem still exists -- cannot print any document from Adobe Reader XI.  Computer freezes when the print file is being prepared at 0%.

  • Upgraded to 10.5 on windows 7.  now itunes freezes when trying to download old apps.  any solutions?

    10.5 upgrade erased apps & books from ipad.  itunes freezes when trying to download from windows 7 computer.  Any suggestions?

    I am using Window Vista 32bit and have the same problem. After trying uninstall, reinstall, ccclean registry, over and over again and still cannot install itune 10.5. And finally concluded that this might be a registry corruption problem. The following steps is what I did to fix the registry isssue and get my itune 10.5 installed.
    - Run Window update - and check the history file, if you see some failures in previous updates, there is something wrong with the registry.
    - un-install all the apple related software (itune, safari, boujour, apple update, etc).
    - For Vista 32bit, go to the following link and run the script to clean up the registry. I am not sure if other WIndow OS will work or not.
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Windows-Update-Error-8000FFFF
    - run the Fix-it script. you have to select the Agressive mode (even thou the pop up window advise not to do this)  in order to clean up the registry. When I try without checking the box, and it did not fix the problem.
    - reboot PC
    - Run window update. It will discover a lot of old updates that need to be installed (I suspect that the fix it script delete a lot of stuff in the registry and removed previous updates). I got 53 updates that need to install.
    - run the update and wait for a longtime (mine took ~2 hours).
    - reboot PC
    - run cccleaner
    - reboot PC
    - install itune 10.5
    Now it works. Hopefully other window OS has similar step to fix this. I can only say it works for me using window Vista 32bit. and so far, my PC works correctly.

  • After I installed the windows 8.1 update, podcasts and music won't play

    After I installed the windows 8.1  update, itunes stopped playing. When I try to play, it brings up the  song but stays at 0:00. My subscribed podcasts still download but they  all stay at 0:00 too. I can click on a later point in the song/podcast  and it moves to that point but just stays there as if it is paused but  indicating it is playing in the controls.
    I  have unistalled/reinstalled itunes and have the same problem.

    Hi there Juniorm1,
    Take a look at the article for the current version of iTunes for Windows.

  • After installing mavericks apple id is greyed out in app store when trying to update iPhoto

    after installing mavericks apple id is greyed out in app store when trying to update iPhoto. How to update iphoto?

    You installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
    Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store alert. For example, the App Store may prompt you to update "Angry Birds" or "Twitter," but the hacked app may be something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you must carry out a systematic search with Spotlight.
    1. Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    2. In the Finder, press command-F to open a search window, or select
    File ▹ Find
    from the menu bar. In the search window, select
    Search: This Mac
    from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu of search criteria, initially showing Kind. From that menu, select
    Other...
    A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select
    Raw Query
    as the criterion, then click OK or press return.
    Now there will be a text box to the right of the menu of search criteria. That's where you enter the raw search query. Click in that box and paste the text you copied earlier by pressing command-V.
    4. The search window will now show all the App Store products that are installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
    At least one of the apps in the Spotlight search results is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash, after quitting it if it's running. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
    Quit and relaunch the App Store. Test.
    If you find these instructions confusing, ask for an alternative method.

  • I updated to Safari 6.1 and now it freezes when opened

    Yesterday I updated to Safari 6.1 and now it freezes when opened, although the overall system stays up.  I updated to the latest Java and iTunes 11.1.2 at the same time. When I open Safari now, it pauses for a few seconds without going to the home page and then I get the spinning beach ball.  I get two messages:  One says that the plug-in for SplashID Safe has not been tested with this version of Safari (a message that I had been getting before the update and never caused a problem).  The other message says, "Crash Protection  It appears that Safari didn't quit properly.  Do you want Glims to re-open your tabs anyway?"  It gives me a choice to click "Cancel" or "OK".   I have tried clicking them (before the beach ball appears) and it makes no difference.  The version of Glims I am running is out-of-date. 
    The only available crash report is almost a month old and therefore is of no help. 
    I made a back-up with SuperDuper just before updating and can reverse the update if I do it soon, but I would like to get this working. 
    I would appreciate any advice. 
    Bill

    >>The version of Glims I am running is out-of-date.
    How do I uninstall Glims?

    This sounds different than with my IOS devices, since I am able to see the photos even with a connection to the Internet.
    Do you mean without a connection to the internet? With a connection it's logical you would be able to see the PS.
    The following is from iCloud: Photo Stream FAQ
    Can photos be saved or downloaded from a shared photo stream?
    Yes. Once photos are shared, anyone who can view the shared photo stream can download and keep the photos permanently.
    On a device using iOS 6 or later, you can save photos to the Camera Roll. On a Mac, using iPhoto 9.4 or Aperture 3.4, you can save photos from the shared stream to your local Photo Library or any other location on your Mac. On a Windows PC, you can copy photos from a shared photo stream to any folder. On the web, photos can be downloaded directly to your computer from the detail view of each photo.
    This tells me that the image files are not on the HD unless the subscriber chooses to download them.

    First of all, why did you say yes to Nero Back up before researching what it does with files already on the HDD? When I install Nero, the Back Up is the first thing I disable, it is a nagging pain, there are much better backup programs available. There are several file recovery programs out there to recover deleted files, that is, if that is what happened. Also, if you haven't overwritten the files, so you should be able to find them.

    Hi Coralienz,
    Can you please check the value of the registry entries at the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    In case the values for any of the entries (i.e. Common AppData, Common Desktop, Common Documents etc.) is referencing to E:\, change the value back to look something like below and you should be good to go.

  • After iPhoto update some photos go black when trying to edit them and am unable to edit those photos

    After iPhoto update some photos go black when trying to edit them and am unable to edit those photos. How do I fix this as this is the latest update?

    If I hold down the Option key while launching iPhoto, I get the option to start a new library. Do I have to import all my thousands of photos into the new library?
    In his original post the poster referenced the following. As to the new Library, see the end.
    There are several possible causes for the Black Screen issue
    1. *Permissions in the Library* : Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Include the option to check and repair permissions.
    2. *Minor Database corruption*: Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild.
    3. *A Damaged Photo*: Select one of the affected photos in the iPhoto Window and right click on it. From the resulting menu select 'Show File (or 'Show Original File' if that's available). Will the file open in Preview? If not then the file is damaged. Time to restore from your back up.
    4. *A corrupted iPhoto Cache*: Trash the com.apple.iPhoto folder from HD/Users/Your Name/Library/ Caches...
    5. *A corrupted preference file*: Trash the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file from the HD/Users/ Your Name / library / preferences folder. (Remember you'll need to reset your User options afterwards. These include minor settings like the window colour and so on. Note: If you've moved your library you'll need to point iPhoto at it again.)
    *If none of these help*:
    As a Test:
    Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

    Thanks

    I am having the exact same problem.  But it seems rare since no one has responded to this post.  A web search turns up a number sketchy website claiming that kswebshield.dll is some sort of malware, but there are no results when you search for it on McAfee.com - no results.  But Malwarebytes.org has a couple results, neither of them are helpful.
    Updated 15 June 2011
    OK.... Here's what I found.  An answer to this post describes the solution (http://www.precisesecurity.com/qa/?p=1829) (scroll down to see the answer).  Since Kingsoft appears to be a legitimate company they should be working adobe to figure out why their software conflicts with Adobe Reader (and who know's which other Adobe products).
    None of the following products identified Kingsoft as a problem; McAfee, Malware Bytes and Spybot Search & Destroy.
    To elaborate on the instructions in the email, I did the following:
    1. Disabled the KingSoft service. 
    2. Backed up my Registry
    3. Deleted the following folders and registry keys:
    C:\ProgramData\kingsoft
    C:\ProgramData\WDD
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\Kingsoft Antivirus WebShield Service
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\services\Kingsoft Antivirus WebShield Service
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Kingsoft Antivirus WebShield Service
    * I was unable to use the "Delete With Wiping" feature in Windows 7 x64, even after reboot.  But, when I Shift+Deleted the files they successfully dissappeared.  I'm going to download BCwipe and wipe the slack space on my machine just to be safe.
    4.  Finally, successfully, launched Adobe Reader.
