I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Situation: Right now an annual IT asset inventory (hardware only- systems, monitors, printers, etc.) is conducted by paper and pencil. That is then compared to last years records to make sure nothing grew legs.

Desired Setup: Bar codes attached to all tracked parts are scanned once a year and then downloaded into a simple application that can be used to compare inventory year to year. Probably would involve a bar-code reader attached to a PDA or other mobile device. Cost should be minimized and only simple analysis is needed.

Any suggestions?

Hi There,
I'm looking into digitizing and cataloging old dv tapes. I have several tapes to digitize and a mac pro with about 400GB free space.
I guess I'm looking for people who have done something similar and want to share their experience, the workflow they followed, software they used etc...

I'm pretty sure I will need to buy an extra Hard drive to fit all the material in and a cataloging software like catDV...
But I'm not sure if this hard drive needs to be internal, so all my videos are online at all time while I'm cataloging and keywording, choosing clips etc. Or is it better for it to be external, kept somewhere safe and only work with previews of my videos while I log and catalogue...

So please, share your experiences and suggestions on workflows and the best softwares for the job

Thank you

I wonder someone could point me in the right direction.
I am looking for a Asset Tracking Software to track our Desktops and Laptops. 
 
Here's a high level overview of what the software should accomplish.
 
1. User receives asset and logs on
2. User prompted with indemnity for the asset receives and should acknowledge it before proceeding to windows desktop.
3. A record should be created on the back-end of the system with the users details and the asset details
4. User should not be allowed to logon to multiple assets if already allocated
5. If user resigns, asset goes into stock and when reallocated to new user, same process applies from step 1-4
6. All of the above should integrate with AD
7. Back-end of the system will allow reallocation and administering of the asset.
 
Obviously, as we go along - more features will be required.
 
Just want to know if there's an off the shelve software that can do the basics so I can introduce it at my company and the board of directors to approve it if further customization is required.
 
Thanks

I'm looking for font management software. I don't want to fill my windows/fonts folder with my own fonts every time I'm working on a project. I want to keep my fonts separate and only turn them on when needed. Like temporary fonts. Then turn them off again. The windows/fonts folder shouldn't be touched/enlarged, just containing the default windows fonts.

Any advice? I guess it isn't possible to temporarily turn on fonts without installing them in the windows/fonts folder?

A:font management software

That sounds like a good idea but I don't know of anything that will do that. Modern PC's and moder OS' such as Win 7 do not have a problem with a large amount of fonts. And, if you are having space problems on the hard drive, it's really time to upgrade the hard drive rather than limit items such as the fonts.

Hi,

i work for an internet business which sells on eBay. at the moment we take a lot of phone orders. obviously with eBay it keeps a record of the order on there, but with phone orders it involves so much paperwork being produced and filing, so when customers ring up to query something from a while back im having to go through loads of paperwork to find their order.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable piece of software that i can use where i would just enter details of their order, for example name, delivery address, items ordered and price etc etc. It would ideally be so if someone rings up and asks about a previous order i can open this program, click a few buttons and their order is in front of me.

im not fussed about keeping inventorys of stock levels and all that, don't particularly want anything over complicated, im good with computers and quite knowledgable but would prefer something simple.
another way i was thinking was to do my own "intranet" and have a form on there which i fill in and then it saves it on the computer so me and my two colleagues (which will become more as we expand) can view it.

i also looked into using microsoft access but not a fan of it.

any ideas would be much appreciated!!!
many thanks

Hi Arron, welcome to the board!

I would recommend Microsoft Access, especially if you have it. Of course this could be done in Excel (which I am a fan of ) but as you grow and your information grows with your company, you'll be happy you started this in a relational database.

There are many Access guru's here and I'm not one of them. LOL! But you may want to think about changing your thread title (Thread Tools | Edit Thread) to include Access somewhere in there. Your current title is somewhat misleading. Also, you may want to check Office Online for templates, there are many you may find useful.

Forgive me if this isn't in the right spot. I didn't know where to put it.

I'm looking for some software that we can use to manage our printing in our office. We have a couple printers that we print on each day and we'd like to track how much gets printed through there. I've found some stuff, but the main function I'm looking for I'm not sure they offer. We aren't trying to see who prints the most or waste paper or anything (we don't really see that as an issue) but instead we need to track our reimbursable.

All of our printing (for clients) gets charged back to the client. Basically I want something that when you click print on your computer, you have to select what project it's for. Maybe just enter the project number. Then the software tracks how many pages (of both 8 1/2 x 11 and 11 x 17 separately) so at the end of the month we have a total of how much each project requires we print.

Does anyone know of software that can do that?

Hey everybody

Here at the office, we have been using Microsoft Access 2003 to manage our agents. It's worked pretty well, but we need something that will do more. Now, I'm not sure of the extent that Access can go into, so it may actually be able to do everything we need it to do.

What we need is contact management software that will allow us to set everyone up into groups. But we need to be able to set up users for the database. These users would have limited access, depending on who they are in the company. Also, we need something where we can attach resumes, files, etc. to it. We are currently using Access, and about 3 other programs to do various things.

I've taken a look at Act! 6, and it is almost perfect for what we want. The people can be put into various groups, and I can attach files right to those people for easy access. Almost perfect.

The problem is, Act doesn't allow me to set access to the groups. For example, when I was using Act, I would set up a hierarchy, to where the top group is the top guy, and each person under that person is a subgroup. That works perfect, except I need to be able to set it up where only certain people can see these groups. I can't do this with Act.

I've taken a look at some other programs as well, but Act is the closest thing I can find. Does anyone know of some really good Contact Management software that I can use? Or is Access capable of what I need it to do?

Thanks.

It will work the same way with an external drive so long as you set your laptop to run the auto run instead of just opening the drive.
