Can't run a lot of programs unless the program is in compatibility mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently, I have been unable to run certain programs like Steam and Skype, and even browsers, without the use of compatibility mode. It has become so frustrating that I cannot run a certain game in compatibility mode because it may seem I would be doing so with ill intentions. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • Can also be 16bit!  If it is and you upgraded it could start explaining some things.

    Information is key. Remember that people are willing to help but are not at your desk with you.

  • Have you recently upgraded windows version?

    Have you used system restore or back-up disk?

    What is your current windows version?

    What operating system is your pc native to?  (32bit or 64bit)

    Can you remember any actions that took place that possibly caused issues?
