As I have recently upgraded my laptop (Toshiba L875D-S7232) to Windows 10, I went about setting it up. However, I came across some issues.
AMD Quick Stream Licensing IssueEverytime I started my computer, it would complain that AMD Quick Stream could not find its license. Luckily, simply uninstalling the AMD Quick Stream fixed the error message from popping up. I then updated the video drivers from AMD's website that included Quick Stream and I no longer seeing the error.
Touchpad Mouse Scroll IssueWhen I went to switch the two-finger scroll to the scroll zone using Synaptic Pointing Device Properties, the zone would show as activating, but no scrolling would happen. So I went to Toshiba's website and downloaded the latest driver (which was actually a downgrade v19 to 220.127.116.11). But when I went to install it, it complained that a newer version was already installed and to uninstall it first. Unfortunately, when I tried to unistall it, it said that it could not because a DLL could not be found. To get around this I went into device manager and uninstalled the driver. Unfortunately, it still would not install using the install. However, I was able to update the driver thru Device Manager, by having it search for the driver in my User/AppData/Local/Temp folder. And great news, I am able to scroll using the zone! Now, Windows Update wants to install the newer version again, so onto the next issue.
Update: After Windows reinstalled 18.104.22.168, I just had to re-do my scroll settings and it works fine now.
Restoring Control PanelAs I wanted to hide the update to prevent my computer from re-installing it, I thought that I could hide it in the traditional Windows Update. To my suprise, when I went to Control Panel, it was EMPTY!
In order to add the icons back I followed these steps (source):
- Start -> type "gpedit.msc" -> select the program
- Select "User Configuration" -> "Administrative Templates" -> "Control Panel"
- Double Click "Prohibit Access to Control Panel" -> Select Disable -> Click Ok
- Double Click "Show Only Specified Control Panel Applets" -> Select Disable -> Click Ok
- Close any open Control Panel windows
- Open the Control Panel
Start Menu will not openWindows 10, randomly began to not open the Start Menu by either clicking on it or pressing the Windows Key.
To fix I followed the following steps to repair corrupt Windows files (source):
- Open Task Manager (by right clicking on taskbar or pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del
- Click "File" -> "Run new task" -> check "Create this task with administrative privileges" -> type "powershell" -> Click Ok
- At the command prompt type "sfc /scannow"
- Wait as this will take a long time
