Windows 7: Yellow triangle in tray: "Solve PC Issues"

15 Mar 2014   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1


You might reread Post #5. I was just providing the OP with the requested guidance. So, maybe, you are not doing that fine.

Perhaps I am just more sympathetic with the OP since I am on Federal Disability and I was also taking care of my 90 year old mother.

I could list 10 programs to run, I also prefer, 1-1 help, But over at PCHF you need to have some fancy "Title" to be able to assist and im not all for that, i understand the idea behind but dont 100% support it.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, service pack 1

Gandalf: Thank you so much for the sentiment. My dad is "only" 87, so you have it harder than I do! And thank you, also, for referring me to the other site. It looks like it would be really helpful so I've saved it with my Favorites. For the time being, I think I'd feel more comfortable trying to fix my problem here. By now, it should be clear that I really am "notta clue." I am not deliberately trying to "disobey;" I just don't know what I'm doing on so many levels, and I am sure that y'all get frustrated with me. I will do my best, even though it might be maddening to you guys who know so much more than I do.

Now I'm going to try to get the TFC situated on my desktop using UsernameIssues' directions.

PS What's an OP?

An OP is forum shorthand.
What is stands for depends a bit on the context:
Original Poster = a person that started a thread/topic
Original Post = the first post in a thread/topic

You are the OP for this thread :-)

I feel so important!
This is what I got from running TFC. I didn't know how to "wrap" an entire window, so I'm attaching results via an attachment. I was not told to re-boot, but I did so manually. The yellow triangle is still in my tray.

Isn't the yellow triangle he is talking about in the task bar with "Solve PC Issues" just part of the Windows Action Center that comes with windows 7?

Yes, but since it appeared in exactly the same place that a fake Microsoft Essentials window appeared, I wasn't sure whether or not it was malicious. Now I know.
