Hello Experts!

I am new to Windows 8 and yet I am encountering a blue screen error with frowny face on top of the error message. This seems new to me since the old Windows BSOD screen is different from this one. I don't know the cause of this error, the last thing I remember is I updated Windows 8 and then I turn off the PC. When I opened it again this morning, the blue screen error is already showing. Can someone please help me resolve it? Reformatting my whole system is my last option since I don't want to lose my programs and important files.

Here is the image of the error message:

Opening the IO Libraries Suite on my new Windows 8.1 causes an error. It was saying something about DPInst.exe. I think that this is related to a driver but I'm not sure how to fix it. Is it the driver for the IO Libraries Suite? Please send me some ideas.

Hi there,

I am in the middle of configuring my system, I have a windows 8 64 bit, 1GB RAM operating system. The problem is I am not able to set the CD-ROM drive software successfully, it failed in driver installation. How do I set the device? How do I install the device drivers? Thinking of the problem might be the device? Help please.

I am getting this wired error message again and again I think a loop is set in there. When I try to install the parallel tools I get this error almost towards the end. It gives me an options to select don’t install or install any way. I was trying to click install any way option, but this is not preceding further. I tired like couple of times, what might be the problem? I tried this from a licensed website. Help to resolve this error.

Error :

Windows can’t verify the publisher of this driver software.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to use a 30 day trial version of WindowBlinds. I downloaded WindowBlinds640_public.exeand installed it. Soon after installation, when I try to load it, I get this ‘Version Expired’ error shown in the below attachment. Clicking OK takes me to a WindowBlinds purchase only window and I not allowed to make use of the 30 day trial period. I uninstalled WinowBlinds rebooted and then tried proceeding with a fresh download from another site. Here again I had no luck. Does anyone know of a 30 day free trial version of WindowBlinds? Thanks for the info.

Hi All,

I was trying WindowBlinds 8 in my windows 8 laptop. After completing the Installation smoothly, I copied the Keygen(RNDD Repack) into the Installation folder and then ran as administrator. It saved the license successfully but when I tried to Patch I got the error ‘Cannot open file’. I disabled the service and tried patching and still I get the same issue. Did anyone else face this issue? What did you try to resolve the problem? I cannot imagine what more could be done to prevent this error. I am waiting for your responses. Thanking you.

Hello All,

I am not able to create a custom System Recovery Disk (SRD) on my computer that has both Symantec System Recovery (SSR) and PGP Desktop Encryption installed. The creation of custom recovery disk fails with an error message. I am using Symantec System Recovery Trial version 2013 on my windows 7 machine. Does PGP Desktop Encryption prevent the recovery disk creation? I had created a recovery disk earlier for a windows XP machine using Symantec System Recovery Trial version 2013 without any issues. There was no PGP Desktop Encryption installed in that case. Do you have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
