Download all Google Drive, Google Docs

“How to easily download all of your Google Drive files at once?”. This question make many people confused and try to find an answer for themself. This simple article will show you how to do it easily.

If you want to download all your files on Google Drive or Google Docs, there are several different ways in which this can be achieved but the best method is to navigate to http://myaccount.google.com and click on the Control Your Content to create an archive of all of your Google Drive files.

Alternatively, users can simply use select all – Ctrl + A (Windows) or command + A (Mac) – from within their Drive window to select all of their files and then click Download. This method is not as effective, however, because users with a large number of files will not be able to easily select all of them at one time.

The third way to download all of your Google Drive files is to download the local Google Drive app (Backup and Sync) for whatever operating system that you’re using.

You can then sync your Google Drive account with the local app to automatically download all of your Drive files to your local computer.

Again, the most robust solution is to access Google’s MyAccount page and create a Google Drive archive using that.

xinput1_3.dll or d3dx9_43.dll is missing on Windows 10/8/7

If when you try to start a program, you receive an error message This program can’t start because xinput1_3.dll or d3dx9_43.dll is missing from your computer, here is a solution that you can use to fix both the problems. These types of problems mainly occur when you try to start a game. Some game’s setup files come with the DirectX installer file that gets installed automatically along with the game files.

xinput1_3.dll or d3dx9_43.dll is missing

Update DirectX

The leading cause of both of the problems is missing DLL files of the DirectX installation.

If you are using Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 that has DirectX 11.1 and DirectX 12, you should run the Windows Update tool. If any update is pending, do install that and check whether it solves the issue or not.

The way of solving d3dx9_43.dll missing error is exactly same as above. You need to download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer to your computer if you have DirectX 9, or if want to update the existing DirectX installation to v9.0. You need to also run Windows Update.

Update Graphics driver

To fix either of the problems, you may update your Graphics Driver. You can either check out the official website or the graphics card management tool that most of the manufacturers provide with the graphics driver.

Hope these solutions work for you. If not, you can always try to re-install the software after removing it completely.

There was a problem starting C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll error

Whenever there is a major update on Windows, some users tend to run into a lot of issues. Not that the update is bad, it’s mostly because of software conflicts, environmental issues, etc. that these issues arise. Today we will discuss an error that mostly occurs after you boot into Windows: There was a problem starting C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll The specified module could not be found. This could occur after you upgrade your Windows version to Windows 10 or Windows 8.1.

There was a problem starting C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll

This error occurs due to the incompatible version Logitech software, more specifically Logitech Download Assistant. This belongs to the Logitech mouse, one of the most commonly used mouse among the PC users. So naturally, a lot of users have reported this error message. After some research, I found out the way to fix this problem. To resolve this problem, please follow these steps.

Method 1

  • Open Task Manager;
  • Go to the Startup tab and find LogiDA;
  • Right-click on LogiDA and click on Disable;

Now we have temporarily disabled the Logitech Download Assistant from starting with the computer. Now we have to delete the entry so we won’t be bothered with it again.

To do so:

  • Press Win+R and type in regedit then press Enter;
  • Now we need to back up the registry. Follow this article on Backup and Restore Registry.
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run;
  • Find Logitech Download Assistant and delete the entry;
  • Now reboot the system for changes to take effect.

Method 2

If you don’t want to go through the whole registry entry, then I’ll suggest a simpler way.

  • Download CCleaner;
  • Now install CCleaner and open it;
  • Click on Tools → Startup;
  • Now select Logitech Download Assistant from the list and click on Delete.

This process is much simple and less complicated. Once you have done this, you need to reboot your computer to take effect.

I hope you find this article helpful. In case of any issues, please feel free to drop a comment in our comments section. We will be more than happy to assist you.

Program can’t start because d3compiler_43.dll is missing from your computer

Yesterday, after a long time I got some free time, so I decided to try out one of the latest game Need for Speed Most Wanted. I borrowed the disk from one of my friends and installed everything. Since I have bought a new laptop, the configuration is pretty good to run this game. It took around 15 minutes to get the game installed. When I tried to open the game, I received the following error message.

The Program can’t start because D3COMPILER_43.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling program to fix this problem.

My first instinct was to run the game in compatibility mode since it may not be yet compatible with Windows 8/10. So I right-clicked on the icon, went to Properties and under the Compatibility tab enabled, selected the compatibility for Windows 7. I started the game again but sadly got the same error.

I started searching for d3compiler_43.dll and found the file was related to Direct X. But I was under the impression Windows 8 built in the Direct X Runtime components. Anyway, I searched for the missing DLL file which I could install and get it working.

So first I downloaded DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) then downloaded DirectX 11 Technology Update. Once the download was complete for DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010), I needed to extract the files first to a folder. So I launched the downloaded file and got the following screen.

Then I was asked the location where I wanted to extract the files. Apparently, it will just extract the files (then we need to go there and install the application).

Once I extracted the files, I went to the folder location and launched the setup.exe. After the installation was complete, I started the game again. Voilà it launched successfully.

So when you are doing a clean install, and planning to install games make sure you install the Direct X Runtime files before you start the game.

Hope this guide helps you.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them

We have already seen how the System File Checker allows users to scan for and restore corrupt Windows system files. We have also seen how to run System File Checker and more, earlier. But what if at the end of the run you see the following message?

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.

What this message says is that although the System File Checker completed the scan and found corrupted system files, it was unable to proceed and replace them with good system files.

The Windows Resource Protection protects registry keys and folders as well as critical system files. If any changes are detected to a protected system file, the modified file is restored from a cached copy located in the Windows folder itself.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them

If you receive this message and the System File Checker is not able to do its job when you run it, here are a few things you can try.

  1. Boot into Safe Mode, open an elevated command prompt windows, type sfc/scannow and press Enter. Just make sure that the PendingDeletes and PendingRenames folders exist under %WinDir%\WinSxS\Temp. This may help if some start-up programs are creating a problem.
  1. If you wish to or need to, you may run System File Checker at Boot Time. This is one option which may help you as it will run System File Checker before Windows loads.
  1. Use DISM. Open an elevated Command Prompt, type Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command and press Enter. This command checks for component store corruption, records the corruption and fixes the corruption. It may take a while though! Useful if System File Checker is not working.

To perform an In-place Upgrade in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, back up your documents, close all open applications and then insert the Windows DVD in the DVD drive. In the Setup window, click Install Now. Click Go online to obtain the latest updates for installation (recommended). Type the CD key if you are prompted to do this. Next, select the operating system in Install Windows page you want to Upgrade or In-place and click Yes to accept the Microsoft Software License Terms. Next click Upgrade when asked Which type of installation do you want. Once the process is completed, restart your PC.

  1. You may also want to consider this option. Open the CBS.log file and view details of the corrupted files and replace the corrupted file with a known good copy manually. Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS you will be able to see and open the SBS.log file.

Check if it shows some errors or a message. That may give you a direction to proceed. You can get more details on how to do this manually, here at KB929833.

I hope something helps you.
