[Solved] Win8.1 hangs on shutdown with Avast 2015 free


Today I installed the patches from Microsoft together with Avast2015 Free.When I decided to reboot the PC it got stuck in either shutdown, please wait or Restart.

I read an article that stated that Avast 2015 was not compatible with the optional KB3000850.
After uninstalling this patch Avast did run without issues.

Avast has solved the issue. Before installing KB3000850 you should check if
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\aswsnx.sys should has a higher version than 1.0.2208.712
So check this version before installing this Microsoft update

Please try this. But, it can't be guaranteed. 
I tested kernel 3.5.0, 3.6.11, 3.7.10 and 3.8.8 on Ubuntu 12.10(x64).
Please tell me result.

Remove "open with" item from context menu

Sometimes you choose the wrong program and before you know it your right click context menu contains a unusable entry.  Removing this entry is simple if you know where to look.
By no means a new item but just archived because I was looking for it on the web and spent more time than I wished to get the right answer. The solution from HowToGeek did the trick:

browse to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \ Explorer \FileExts\
Here you’ll see a list of all the file extensions that are registered on your computer.

Browse to the file extension you wish to edit, click the white triangle beside it to see the subfolders, and select OpenWithList.  In our test, we want to change the programs associated with PDF files, so we select the OpenWithList folder under .pdf.
Notice the names of the programs under the Data column on the right.  Right-click the value for the program you don’t want to see in the Open With menu and select Delete.

HP Officetjet 6500 E709N, Scan option does not work [Solved by using webscan option]

When you use the the printer scan buttons, the printer's LCD display will show: "select computer" and an arrow pointing to the right, and when you press the right rocker switch to "select the computer", nothing happens.
I tried uninstall and reinstall of thee full software package which is over 300MB and includes a lot of things I did not find useful and the result on the printer's display was the same.

The best thing is , in order to get your scanning working again you don't need additional software.
You only need to enable the webscan option:

Check your IP address of the printer, in my case it was and you add that into your browser and you will be presented a webpage that shows on the left side the option to use Webscan:
