I have two brand new problems, possibly related since they appeared at the same time. The two problems are:
- My computer no longer boots up to the previously normal desktop. It now boots up to the point that the desktop is visible, but shaded, with all icons disabled, and with a message box in the center of the screen. The message box says the following:
“Keep the USB drive plugged in. Only remove it after your PC has shut down completely. Otherwise, your Windows To Go workspace might crash and you could lose data.”,
The message box also contains a “Close” button. If I click on the “Close” button, the computer screen becomes unshaded and the icons and other buttons become accessible to me, SOMETIMES. I just now clicked on the “Close” button and nothing is happening at all. The screen is still shaded. And, all computer icons, buttons, and functions are still disabled
- Garritan CFX Concert Grand no longer loads. Last night it would only load until the progress bar had moved 1/3 of the way to completion. Today it has been moving about 2/3 of the way to completion. When its progress grinds to a halt, the rest of the computer remains disabled. I cannot click the cancel button on the Garritan loader screen. I cannot click the X in the upper right corner of Garritan to close it. I cannot click on any other desktop icon. I cannot get into the Microsoft Start menu. I just have to power the computer down and start over.
Regarding problem 1:
I have never used or attempted to use a “Windows To Go workspace”. I don’t know what this is and don’t know how or why Microshit is inflicting this on me.
I keep this computer away from the internet just to keep the Microsoft child molesters away from my computer. It is a Windows 10 Pro machine and it worked fine upon acquisition, I don’t need the Micosoft vermin to be fucking with it, so I do not connect it to the internet.
The only things connnected to the computer via USB are the mouse, the keyboard, my USB midi cable from the VPC1, the digital input of my DAC, and a separate USB cable to the DAC as its power supply. I tried disconnecting the DAC to see if Windows was interpreting it as the fantom “Windos To Go workspace”, but the result was the same. Booting with or without the DAC connnected made no difference.
I have tried powering down and then restarting the computer with no effect. I have just tried unplugging the computer (while booted) and then replugging and rebooting with no effect.
-My most recent unplugging and replugging and rebooting now has my computer failing to reboot at all. It is stuck in the early stages of booting up, the one where only the blue windows icon appears on the otherwise black sccreen.
Regarding Problem 2:
- I discovered that I can successfully load Garritan if I do the following:
a. click the Garritan icon in the usual way to get the doomed-to-fail loading process started;
b. at a point just before the progress bar reaches the spot where the loading fails, I click the “Cancel” button, leave the Garritan CFX window on the computer screen, and then click the Garritan icon again, thus opening a second Garritan CFX piano. This second piano oftentimes completes loading though the first on fails.
So, right now, I have a computer that won’t boot up. And, if it did, it might or might not let Garritan CFX load
