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.)


Good day Brink, and fellow Windows enthusiasts!

I've been a long time advocate of following a certain routine (using Brink's fantastic tutorials) when Windows' folders start to not behave correctly and remember settings:
1. I reset my folder view settings
Folder View Settings - Reset to Default in Windows 8

2. After all folder settings have been wiped, I next will create a folder template for ALL folders (I like to use General Items, as it is the most common for me)
Folder Template - Set Default for All Folders in Windows 8

3. Then a must for me is to install ShellFolderFix (x64?) to make navigating through Windows much more pleasant.
ShellFolderFix - Manage folder window positions/size - Windows 7 Help Forums

4. My last step had always been to edit the Registry and add a BagMRU Size DWORD value (I guess I should use 64-bit now since I'm running Windows 8.1 x64?) since it was always the thing to do, to use a large number of folders Windows would remember settings for.
Windows Explorer Folder View settings

After only recently seeing this older article targeted for Vista, I see on step #24 that Brink used the number 20000. I previously only ever used 10000.

So seeing this number twice the size I used to use made me wonder if I had set it too low.

Here is (probably) a once-in-a-lifetime question. Have fun . . .

The Scenario: I create applications that provide interactive visual
maps for use with commercial audio CDs. The way the program works is

As the CD is playing, I can "grab" timing points (in millisecond
timings). These are stored in a database that is then used to create
the maps and link the elements to the CD (so that when my students click
on a section of the map, that portion of the piece plays from the CD).
Once the times are captured, I can then edit them, moving forward or
backward by increments of 1", 1/4", 1/10" and frame (approx. 13
milliseconds). These new timings are written to the database.

The Problem: All this has worked fine on my old Windows 98 desktop. I
recently moved to a laptop (a Toshiba Satellite P-15S series). The software does not function properly on this machine (or on a comparable Dell laptop, though it did work on a very old Gateway laptop with 98). In the editing mode, when I ask it to, say, advance by 1/10", it may randomly advance by 1", or go back by 1/4", or anything else. When I talked to Toshiba, I was told that the problem was that rather than reading the disc continuously in real
time, it was actually reading ahead, and converting to Windows Media
Player files for playback. What is not clear is whether this was a
function of 1) Windows XP 2) the particular CD drive 3) Laptop CD drives
(being inherently slower) or some combinat... Read more

I just recently downloaded the IE9 beta. Everything is running well, with the exception that the text is rendering blurry. I managed to overcome the problem by running the browser using IE8 standards (in developer tools).

The issue I'm having now is whenever I open up a new tab it reverts back to the regular IE9 standards, meaning I have to go back into the developer tools to switch back to IE8 standards. Is there any way to save the IE8 setting, so that I don't have to manually switch it every time I open a new tab?

quick question.

I inheireted a dual core amd board with SLI capabilities. I think ive decided what set of cards i will keep my eyes on. However, they dont come with the chip or wire that run between them.

Is there a "standard" in SLI cable lengths? I know at one point the motherboard probably had them, but i just didnt get them. (it being free and all)

on newegg i cant find the "bridge" that connects the two together. If its more than 6 bucks ill be shocked, seems like a cheap part that the cards should come with in the first place.

A:The SLI standards

SLI Connector Issues

All SLI certified mainboards will come with a SLI bridge connector. Each mainboard manufacturer tends to use a different looking connector, but they all do the same thing.

Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer to see if they'll send you one.

Otherwise, you're going to have to buy one and the only one I found costs around: $24.99.


Otherwise you can always try ebay!

Hi all

I am very new to networking and i am currently studying a course in networking and my college is unable to help me with a question i have about these networking standards/guidlines.

These two standards are...."the consolidation point" and the "MUTOA". I read that they are advised when you have a work area that will likely be changed around alot, and the standards are there to help with redundency, in other words not to go over your cable type maximum allowed length, when PC's are being moved around ect.

but i just dont get how these methods (and extra devices) help in any way?

with consolidation point, you run your horizontal from the telecomm room to a punchdown, then run it to a wall jack in the office, then your user has a cable to the PC from the jack. If the consolidation point (the punchdown block) was like a repeater, then sure i get it, but it does not lengthen the allowed run of cable as it is not a repeater or any similar device....so why add the consolidation point?its not gonna have an effect on the length, which is the problem when PC's are moved around in an office.

The MUTOA is pretty much the same, it just has a different device and different specified lengths in between devices, but really i dont see how either of them help. I've found things on the next that show diagrams as well as have text explaining them, but no where does it explain HOW this overcomes the problem of a non perminant office causing ... Read more

Could someone direct me to any standards for programming changes? I'm interested in what would be an appropriate time expectation for changes to a website. i.e. changing control access depending on login id, printing a page in landscape format (rather than portrait) from a control button, toggling between windows, etc.
I've invested in the development of a web application, and the basic database and web display are complete, however, just need a few, what I call, tweaks like those listed above. (the program analyst calls system changes)
Any help would be appreciated.


A:Time Standards for Programming Changes

Hi finhere,

Standards for programming changes usually relate not to time to do a change (which varies according to factors involved in doing the change) - there are many maintenance factors to consider, like language, documentation, testing, knowledge and experience of staff, difficulty of the changes, etc. - but, rather to the coding for the language involved.

Try searching Amazon.com for the book entitled:
Software Engineering Economics by Barry Boehm

That might give you an inkling about software management considerations, scheduling, etc.

Printing a page via a control button requires changing the properties of the printer which can easily be done manually by anyone printing a webpage, but with regard to software certainly sounds like more than just a tweak.

Toggling between windows these days can be easily done by using tabbed browsing, such that toggling is nothing more than clicking on a tab that has the window of interest already loaded.

Changing control access depending on login sounds like permissions to me, i.e. Administrator access vs Power user access vs limited user access. There is always use of the "Run As" feature for a limited user to gain Administrator access, but that requires the use of the Admin password which a limited user would not normally have. Then there are Local Security Policies which could be set with additional rules for executing programs with Basic User rights vs Unrestricted rights (which is what an Administrator needs to do t...

Hello everybody,

I just have a quick query about wireless standards. What exactly is the situation with compatibility between these standards? For example, I have a 802.11a wireless adapter on my games console. What wireless standard router will I have to get for compatability with this?

The thing is, I heard in one place that none of the standards are compatible with each other, however, my previous WAP/router was advertised as being 802.11b/g, but it worked with the 802.11a wireless adapter??? Can someone please clear this compatability issue up for me? I totally understand the performance differences between the four standards, but the compatability capabilites just confused me! I just don't know! It's all a muddled mess in my brain!

A general post about exactly what the compatability situation is (preferably linked loosely with the console adapter and WAP issue described above) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you hugely in advance!

I've got around 10 computers here that are running a piece of software that I'd like to know are all on the same local network to avoid any latency. They are all showing as being on the same workgroup, however the connections themselves are not all uniformly named. I suspect this isn't really a problem, but I would like to know why these connections are named as they are (I wasn't here for the creation of the network) and how I should be thinking about the naming conventions. Dumb questions, I'm almost positive, but I have an itch to understand what I'm working with at a granular level.

A:Network Connection Name Standards

Make sure each computer has a unique hostname (such as pc1, pc2, pc3 etc), and if you're using a workgroup setup the workgroup name on each computer. If you change one of these setting on your computer its best to restart it in my experience.

If you have your OS on one partition and data on another, you can format one partition and leave the OS. If you have only one partition there isn't much you can do other than a delete of folders but they are not really wiped from the HD if someone wanted to go to the trouble of trying to recover them.

Hello everybody,

I understand the general ideas associated with the 802.11a/b/g/n standards. I know that speeds vary across the standards. However, what exactly is meant by speed? If I have a set Internet connection that is set as high as it can be for my area (about 8Mbps download speed I think), then how exactly will having say, the 802.11n standard of devices increase download speeds etc if my connection is already at the max? I just haven't got quite a firm enough grip on how exactly the wireless standards increase, and indeed decrease, speeds? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Wireless Standards Speeds

For an 8mbit connection, the difference between 802.11g (54mbit max) and 802.11n (300mbit max) will be nil for Internet connections. The only benefit of 802.11n on that network would be local file/print sharing.

In general, you'll see about 1/2 the raw connection speed in actual throughput for wireless connections. That equates to 25-30mbits/sec for 54mbit 802.11g connections.

Obviously, if you have a low signal quality or interference and you connect at lower speeds, your throughput will be affected as well.

We all need to support this legislation.

Let's blow up the internet supporting it. Also, I'd like to hear people's thoughts on a class action suit that targets advertisers that support malicious activities, either directly or indirectly. The two propositions:

Advertising companies (such as OPTMD) are negligent by providing money to finance malicious internet activities, including malware, to clients and affiliates who generate income from advertisements that are generated by malicious software. These individuals generate income from advertisements provided by hosts and use that income to develop computer fraud and identity theft software. These advertisers are responsible for ensuring the legitimacy of the clients that use its services.

And why is that a legitimate claim?

A rapacious interest can be reasoned on the part of advertisers who benefit directly from malicious software that increases the visibility of their advertisements. The company has rapacious interest to support malicious software development since a direct correlation can be shown between income and malicious software. In more basic terms, advertisers do not ensure the legitimacy of their affiliates because illegitimate, malicious software that promotes their advertisements makes them more money by allowing more users to see more of their advertisements without consumer knowledge or consent.

It could show both negligence and rapacio... Read more

I'm in need of a new PSU for an older PC. Can't remember the mobo maker (its a compaq presario junk board) but im runnin an AMD Athlon 1.2ghz (Thunderbird). The mobo requires the 6 pin Auxilary power connector. When I started looking for a new power supply and I view the PSU's specs (on outlet sites like tigerdirect/newegg) I cannot find any with the 6 pin Auxilary connector. I read one article which made it sound like the newer 24 pin main power connectors made the 6 pin connector obsolete, and another that made it sound like the 6 pin connector was required to meet the newest ATX standards.

So my questions are:
1. Is the 6 pin Auxilary power connector part of the new standard and should I just assume that even though it isn't listed in the PSU's spec it's still there?
2. Or if the new 24 pin connectors replaced the need for this auxilary connector can I just bypass that on my old mobo by using the 20 pin converter usually supplied with the newer PSU's?

The US National Security Agency (NSA) is in the global bad books again after allegations surfaced suggesting it was trying to manipulate international encryption standards. Reuters reports that it has seen interviews and emails from experts in countries including Germany, Japan and Israel expressing concern that the NSA has been pushing two particular encryption techniques not because they are secure, but because the agency knows how to break them.
The NSA has been gunning for two techniques, known as Simon and Speck, to be included in the International Organization of Standards (ISO). Following the accusations the agency, which says it "firmly believes" the techniques are secure, has agreed to drop all but the most powerful (and therefore less vulnerable) versions of Simon and Speck, but the issue has fostered significant mistrust and suspicion among countries which are supposed to be allies. Speaking to Reuters, Israeli ISO delegate Orr Dunkelman, a computer science professor at the University of Haifa, said, "I don't trust the designers. There are quite a lot of people in NSA who think their job is to subvert standards. My job is to secure standards."

A:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

You can use the InStr function to find and replace punctuation marks, but that requires a little bit of coding.

The simplest solution I can think of is not to use punctuation in your fields, and then create a query in which you use string-conversion and concatenation (the thing with the ampersand--for putting together multiple things, in the above case field values) to create some fields in a query, for example:

Add1Upper: StrConv([AddressLine1],1)
Add2Upper: StrConv([AddressLine2],1)
CityZipUpper: StrConv([City] & " " & [State] & " " & [Zip],1)

Of course, in those examples you'll have to change the field names to match yours, but other than that you can paste this text right into the QBE.

Hope this helps--Let us know.

Hello all, thank you in advance for your help, it has gotten very bad over here.

I have the standard issues only it seems that it's ten times worse than a lot of folks I've read. Ads that pop up in new tabs with music, redirects on searches, constant (5-10 minutes max) freezing and hard reboot, Google Chrome security error, constant blue screens (never the same .sys error).

Here is the information according to the instructions. A couple of notes:

1. I could not run GMER. I'm on a 32-bit system, but every time I tried, it resulted in a blue screen.
2. My copy of Malwarebytes has expired, FYI. If the solution involves that, I don't know if that will affect things.

Thanks again guys.

I'm lost.
The old days with fewer iterations of everything are gone.
I could change a power supply in a Dell even when I had to mod the case.

Now, I'm not even sure which PSU will work, will have the right cables, and will fit inside the desktop case.

Now, before you hit reply, (especially for SpeedStep), and post Corsair CS750M please hear me out.
I've read many threads with various power and Amp requirements:
3.3/5v rail needs 150W
15 to 20W (3 or 4A) on the 5Vsb
9W on the -12V
and the power calculator I used indicates about 600W is needed fully loaded.

Well, I go straight  for the Corsair CS750M, and what do I see in the specs on the corsair site for the CS750M? 
130W on the 3.3/5v
3A/15W on the 5Vsb
9W on the -12v

luckily the dimensions aren't changed.  Still 140mm / 5.5" long

So, I am thinking either the dell Motherboard Specs have changed (?) or the power supply specs have changed. (???)

which? I have no idea.  I am lost.

So, I go looking for PSU that delivers 150W on the 3.3/5v, at least 15W on the 5Vsb and at least 9W on the -12V.

I see there is a EVGA PSU saying it is ready for 4th gen core - 120-g1-0750-XR, but I'm not sure about the dimensions (7.1inches long or 180mm compared to the 140mm/5.5" of the CS750M) and the 4 pin is not a 4 pin.  It is a 2x split 4pin+4pin. 
Also, there is a Thermaltake TPG-750M - with similar specs
150W on the 3.3/5v
15W on the 5Vsb
9W on the -12V
but it is also 7.1"... Read more

I recently installed a new hard drive and the first time I tried to use WMM, (using a WMV file) I got this message when I tried to publish a video.

" WMM cannot save the file to the specified location. Verify your original source files are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free disc space available and then try again. "

I also tried publishing about 15 seconds of it.

Would very, very sincerely appreciate any and all suggestions.

(Our livelihood depends on it.)

A:WMM not publishing...

Did you move any movie files to the new drive?

I vaguely recall having this problem years ago and I believe all that had to be done was to point MMM to the right directory. You can do that by clicking 'View' and click on 'My Videos Folder'. Then go find the folder.
