Invalid security token when updating Windows Media Center

Yesterday, one of my customers called me and told me that he received an error Invalid security token when updating Windows Media Center on Windows.

Use PowerShell to change the number of App Tile rows on the Windows 8

If you are using Windows 8.1 / 8, you should know that the number of lines for tiles on the starting screen depends entirely on the screen resolution or window size that corresponds to your default Windows screen. But sometimes you may want to display a number of tile lines on the home screen, which does not depend on the size of the screen. And there’s no direct way to change that number of rows of tiles.

In one of our previous messages, we saw how to change this with the registry editor. This article shows how to change the number of application tiles on the Windows 8 startup screen using PowerShell Script and VBScript. You don’t need to know the programming – these finished scripts are provided in the TechNet Script Center Gallery. All you have to do is execute the script. We will see both methods, one now and the other in our next post. My PC comes standard with 5 rows of application tiles. What I will do is change it to 3 with Power Shell Script and 5 again with VBS in the next post. read more
