Windows 7: Event Viewer Errors & Warnings

I'm back with a red face. Hope I can word this to make sense. I've been reading,re-reading for hours but just wasn't sure I should give up so here's what I've done, found, & need to ask more.

I went back to Services & "Started" VSS at 8:36am. Then more reading,etc. Have been wondering more if my Office "Click to Run" was the problem 'cuz it's always listed in EV shortly before VSS so opened a couple 'doc items'. Eventually back to check EV & found more, so re-read my posts & Jacee's links hence my when I found my 1st flub as seen in my post #3 where I typed "icals" when it should've been "icacls".
Now my questions are: 1.) was I right by typing all that's in 'blue' as seen in my shot at post #1?
2.) when I copy/paste whs's , then I just click enter? I just did it again a bit ago & got the same as my earlier try.
Sorry to make such a mess here, will post a couple more shots for you to ponder on.(if I can find them in my mess)

I found something in a Microsoft forum that kinda confirms my #21 post. Others were having the same VSS warnings & errors but sounds like they were trying to do backups which I haven't. There was talk of the Office Click-To- Run. I've been half tempted for a long time to see about Uninstalling that anyway just because of it's constant filling up of the Event Viewer. I only activated it so I could read a couple documents that were emailed to me, so if I can find a different program for viewing docs will uninstall Click to Run.

Don't know for sure if I should mark this Solved but have only found one VSS in Events since Sun. 5/5 (today's Wed.5/8). Am assuming it's due to the change in Services? Still wondering tho' about the Command Prompts that were suggested, "do they just show something or do they make changes? Should I try them again if I can figure out the correct spacing of the icacls one?

Did you buy the Office Trial bloatware that comes preinstalled on OEM rigs? If not I'd uninstall it, or better yet that is a corrupt install to begin with so most tech enthusiasts will not run it but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to get rid of the bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7.

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware however it can damage system files so is best reinstalled.

Other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to go over your install thoroughly. I resolve all repeat errors over time by googling their text and identifying numbers to see how others resolve them. Takes research.

No,didn't buy anything, just 'started,activated,installed' or whatever the term is, that "Click-To_Run Office just so I could read & save some Word documents that were emailed to me.

I've tried to read all your links many times in the year that I've had this machine but I'm so damn computer illiterate that it may as well be written in a foreign language. PEBCAK
I don't have anything other than some DVD+R discs for any kind of 'Backup'. I did do some discs as suggested by eMachine although it was approx. 2 wks. after I bought it. There's 'Recovery 1,2,3, also AppDrv 1. Also found one that is dated 2 months later but even tho' I have written on the cover,(what it is) I don't remember doing it or what it is.
I'm sure I should probably wipe this thing out & start from scratch but do have some things I need to keep like email but don't even know how to save needed things so I could start over. I'm sure I wouldn't need to worry about keeping 'my settings,configurations' 'cuz that's probably a good share of my problems, "done wrong".

Sorry to ramble on like this, I just feel so stupid! I'm about half sorry I ever bought a PC.

Is it possible to run VEW on just the VSS items in Event Viewer? or would that even show enough info for any of you to help me? or how do I go about getting & posting more info for each of the 3 different ID:#'s if that's what's needed?

I kid you not, I'm trying to understand this stuff but it just won't click with me. My 2yr.old greatgrandson could probably understand it as well as me.

I'm grasping at anything but then don't understand what to do with what I find. (see 2nd shot)

grits it sounds to me that you have the Office 2013 on a trial version and it's time has run out. You have two choices. One is to buy the key so you can use the full version of Office 2013. Two is to completely remove Office 2013. If you choose to remove it and do run this to see if any System Files need fixed.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I also recommend turning vss back on.

System Protection - Turn On or Off

You could also clear Event Viewer and start all over again when done.

If you're using the Office trial it normally expires in 60 days or so. If it's lasted longer maybe you instead enabled Starter which is their previous ad-supported free version which is now being phased out as explained here: Microsoft begins phasing out Starter edition of its Office suite | ZDNet

Either way as Jack suggests you can uninstall Office in Control Panel to use the new free web version of Office 2013 or use the perfectly compatible popular freeware Apache OpenOffice - The Free and Open Productivity Suite if you want an installed program that will open and create your Office files.

If you're not ready to do a Clean Reinstall then maybe we can help you resolve any performance problems you have if you'll let us know the exact symptoms.

Also, would you be able to tackle Clean Up Factory Bloatware steps with our help now? This can help improve performance and help you gain confidence working with Win7.

I'm already late for a supper meeting so will just post a few shots for now, will be back tomorrow. I don't understand anything about Office, just need something to read docs & then forward via email.

Looks like you're using Starter as you can see on the top of the Office Document window. It's being phased out but they may let you keep it since it's not really connected except by MS Update and I doubt they'll bother you about changing to its free successor which is described in the link I provided you.

What exactly are performance problems you're having?
