Re: A query I meant to post earlier about windows messages


Please don't be scared about icons.

I have a client I service regularly, that said he had a lot of spyware and things on the net told him to download all these programs and buy into all sorts of things which he did, but had a lot more issues and still the same messages.

After clearing his system I got down to all the messages they were his notifications crying out ofr attention, if this is from action centre, opening action centre should list you the notification, where it came from, etc if it needs work it will tell all.

What sort of message and where? An e-mail message? What does it tell you
to do? Without more information this sounds like classic phishing.
Microsoft isn't going to monitor how many millions of e-mail programs and
let users know if something is incorrectly set.

Well Maxy do as it says. Maybe a setting got messed up somewhere. I get
this sometimes and I do fix it. I'm assuming you are using the Mail app?

Along that line I am getting a message every few days telling me that
Microsoft needs to fix my email. My email is working fine. I guess they
never heard the expression, if it aint broke don't fix it. What am I
saying? Microsoft is well known for fixing things that aint broke.

hitting enter on that can help to open it however I don't always trust
windowsaction/ notiffication centre.

For example, during a clock sync the power dropped off and the router died.

I got it back every thing was out of sync, windows was alegal, everything
wouldn't open and everything was screaming at me.

It was waterfox that alerted me to the fact everything was backwards and
pointed me at my clock, which I changed.

Then everything worked.

But the messages stayed, and I had to tell action centre to ignore them
till they died.

On a similar note, notifications can report a problem, but in a criptic way
and after I have found and solved it.

I was upgrading one of my security/ backup programs.

And immediately I got a notification that I was unsafe, recomending a full
reset and reformat.

I was aware the thing was broken, and continued updating.

After this, I had to clear things.

I have had it say for example that I am using pirated windows, and my
accounts are not signing in and that a whole host of things are screwed and
that I should reset or something.

Yet when I have logged into where I need to go to check, not only are they
not showing no problems but checking on the server side shows that they
never existed.

Or existed for such a little time it didn't matter.

The only time that its ever really worked was when I was updating a
business server for my uncle and the system kept crashing, at that time,
windows put up the usual video card issue with the drivers crashing out.

A small note put that it was a bug with the driver, and to open a website
for instructions, where I found the manufacturer had added to the action
note that I needed a new driver and got a direct link to it.

But that was before things got weird.

Now, I do glance at notifications centre just like I would glance at the
paper, but 99.9% of the time I just clear them, in most cases its fixed,
not a problem or if it is, I can handle it without any issue.

In Windows 7, sometimes in the tray icons is one saying you have one
message, basically some kind of problem report. I seldom seem to
notice it till then, so one might be forgiven for thinking that
invoking the context menu and selecting the open for the centre might
just give a clue to what it is.
However normally this opens a screen with things like troubleshooting,
security, maintenance etc, and seems to have no obvious way to simply
view that message.
Am I missing something obvious?
So if there is a quick way to just get to that message wherever it is
and read it it would be great. It normally tends to be something like
Backup issues or some odd crash of explorer or some such, but one can
never find the actual text until you accidentally resolve it by
guesswork and then you can see it in the old archive. Its a bit
pointless then!
