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.)

WARNING

As I've test the incompatibilities, patches, and scripts on my virtual machine, I have made tweaks to this configuration both concerning system and settings. The tweaks I've made to this system are critical and will cause system instability if not configure automatically. In addition to that, I've made custom scripts made with AutoHotkey to optimize the compatibility of some of my security software. These scripts are unique to each software and are converted to an executable. If you wish to copy my configuration, PM me or do extensive research as the scripts and settings that I made for my configuration are critical to compatibility and optimization.

MY GOAL

My goal is to achieve a high level of security without compromising usability and comfort.

I'm a very avid gamer and I've been trying how to configure my system solely for gaming and I was looking for some help with that such as which services I can stop/disable (so they don't run on startup) and etc. I'm not sure exactly what information I'll need to provide for someone to help me with this so yeah.

A:Optimized for gaming

It all depends on whether the gaming includes internet usage or not?

Plus you can create a batch file to stop the services before running the game and another one to start the services when you have finished with the game...this works out pretty well.

Hi, I would like to know if that Optimized pcie x4 NVMe SSD Bios update will work on my VN7-791G. It's listed for the VN7-792G as well as updated Realtek audio drivers that aren't listed for mine (although same Realtek audio) so I don't see why there would be a conflict. Same with the Synaptics touchpad driver. I'm thinking maybe the Acer update page just isn't up to date on my older Nitro. I can see  how the Intel Chipset driver would not work (I think) since I am running Haswell not Skylake. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, It will not work to be short. The checkum will see that the BIOS is not designed for the 791G and it will not install it. Also from where are you sure that 791G has Nvme support?

Hi all,

I'm looking to build a PC for a friend of mine. He will use it primarily for gaming, but he is on a budget.. would like to play all modern games, but want to keep it under $1000. Last time I built a computer was about five years ago, so I'm definitely out of the loop when it comes to latest hardware... would such thing even be possible?

Any suggestions on configuration? Many thanks!!!

What will be the best configuration for me within a budget of around Rs.30000?
 

A:Best PC configuration for gaming within Rs.30000/-

You will probably have to start from scratch for the most part. You can probably reuse things like: keyboard,mouse,HDD ,monitor and your optical drive. However, to get to the performance you want. You will need a new MOBO,CPU,GPU and PSU. If you could tell me where you would possibly be buying these parts. I could try and help configure the build for you. Since, I am not familiar with your currency. I have no idea where to look for parts for you.

Hi everyone
I'm Indrashis,I live in Kolkata(India) and I want to build a midrange gaming rig for around 26000-30000 rupees.
I have keyboards and mouse and a 16inch LCD monitor so i wont be buying those things and i will be playing Crysis,COD 6,Metro 2033 etc games.
(Also I want to have DDR3 RAM in my rig)
Please suggest accordingly.
 

A:System configuration for mid-budget gaming pc

Hi Indrashis95. Welcome to Techspot.

With a budget of around 30K INR you'll have to make do with an AMD dual or triple core system.

Look into the Phenom II X2 555 BE or if you can find the Phenom II X3 720. Any board with an AMD 770 / 870 chipset should do fine. You might be able to squeeze in the Phenom II X4 925 if you find a cheap enough motherboard.

As you'll be gaming on a 16" monitor I assume that your resolution will not exceed 1280x1024. A Radeon HD 5770 will be more than enough. In fact you could even consider the cheaper HD 4770 / 4850 for your system.

A 2x2GB DDR3 kit will do good. A good quality 450W PSU (with sufficient amps on the 12V rails) should run the system.

Just hunt around for the best possible prices. The vendors here are usually out to fleece you.

Incidentally, I'm also from Kolkata.

OK, I'll give a brief overview of what I'm working with and then describe my problem. I have a relatively new notebook (bought it about 2 months ago, I wouldn't think the exact specs are necessary but if they are let me know), a DSL connection and I have a Linksys Wireless-G router.

I've attempted to play two games online with a friend (Age of Empires 3 and Diablo 2), both of which resulted in nothing by headaches. In both games we attempted to directly connect to each other via IP. He also has a notebook and is using a wireless router. We've tried it both ways; me trying to connect to him and vice versa, same problem both times.

Now, I don't know a whole lot of anything about networking and routers and the such, but I'll put in what I do know. When I try hosting a Direct IP game, both games listed an IP at the top of the screen, but it wasn't my IP, it was what I think is called the local IP? It's 192.168.1.1; now I know that's the address to the router and if I type that in my browser address bar I can access the router's configuration and all that good stuff. I also noticed that if i go to that address one of the options under the router configuration is "Applications and Gaming". When I go there it lists a bunch of stuff about opening ports and triggering ports and some other stuff that I've never heard of.

I've talked to a few people and they tell me that I would need to open certain ports and... Read more

I added the exclusions for Mbam in Avira and for Avira in Mbam, even if I read that there shouldn't be any conflicts between these two, especially with free version of Mbam. I have Avira Pro set to highest detection level, CF configured according to this link (Guide for Comodo Internet Security v8 installation & setting +HIPS enabled in Safe Mode), Voodooshield free with Whitelist Mode-always ON and default setup, Avira Scout as browser and Avira System Speed Up.
My biggest concern is CF, because I use it now for the first time, I read a lot about it, but still have some concerns.
What settins should I make in CF( Firewall, Sandbox, Hips, Viruscope) for these secutity tools to work together without conflicts?
What settings should I do in other softwares for same purpose?
I have installed the setup for a week now and it seems to not be any problem, but I want to be sure.
Finally i want to ask for opinions about setup, what should I add/remove, how strong it looks etc.

There shouldn't be conflicts between Avira & VoodooShield or Mbam but it is possible that there could be a conflict with Comodo IS. If you use Comodo IS primarily for the Firewall then you should be fine but yeah like you said you need to check all the settings to make sure that everything is ok & won't ever conflict. By the sound of it I think you'll be fine. I used to use Comodo IS with Kaspersky IS 2017 & VoodooShield & Zemana. I used Comodo for Sandboxing only though & there were no conflicts there.

I have this setup on two PCs, both with Windows 10 64-bit. My concern is possible conflicts between softwares. I added the exclusions for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in Avira and for Avira in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, even if I read that there shouldn't be any conflicts between these two, especially with free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I have Avira Pro set to highest detection level, CF configured according to this link (Guide for Comodo Internet Security v8 installation & setting +HIPS enabled in Safe Mode), Voodooshield free with Whitelist Mode-always ON and default setup, Avira Scout as browser and Avira System Speed Up.
My biggest concern is CF, because I use it now for the first time, I read a lot about it, but still have some concerns.
What settins should I make in CF( Firewall, Sandbox, Hips, Viruscope) for these secutity tools to work together without conflicts?
What settings should I do in other softwares for same purpose?
I have installed the setup for a week now and it seems to not be any problem, but I want to be sure.
Finally i want to ask for opinions about setup, what should I add/remove, how strong it looks etc.
I added a screenshot of my CF config: Gyazo - 4b9ea71bb8e9757646229a01e5e837e9.png
One last thing, when I want to open a browser in Comodo Sandbox, I have no internet, the page is not loading and the process appears in Blocked Intrusions in Defense+Events section and i don't know why (tried with many browsers).
 

A:What exclusion should I do for this configuration: Avira Internet Security+CF+Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free+Voodooshield

There shouldn't be conflicts between Avira & VoodooShield or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware but it is possible that there could be a conflict with Comodo IS. If you use Comodo IS primarily for the Firewall then you should be fine but yeah like you said you need to check all the settings to make sure that everything is ok & won't ever conflict. By the sound of it I think you'll be fine. I used to use Comodo IS with Kaspersky IS 2017 & VoodooShield & Zemana. I used Comodo for Sandboxing only though & there were no conflicts there.

Googling for 3D games, I stumbled across "*The polynomial*" on
http://dmytry.com/games/
- and fell in love with the screenshots.
So I downloaded and unzipped it.

And got frustrated because I couldn't see it "with depth" - which was why I had bought this PC.

Here is what to do to get it displaying stereoscopically:

Update the drivers: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB1C038G0000R01.htm
Calibrate the display using Windows' Start button, "All Programs", "SuperD Software", "X-tune", "X-tune".

*Now to the game*:
Ensure no external displays are active (use Win+P)
Start polynomial.exe
Press ESC to get to its control panel.
Click Display, "Fullscreen" and "Side by side".
Click "Play Demo".

I get the same picture in the left and right halves of my display.
Now comes the bit I battle(d) with: using your right fore-finger, press the
"3D" button above your keyboard (2 rows above the "Backspace" key).

SuperD Face Tracking should start automatically, and the blue light beside the webcam
lights up. (May take a couple of seconds.)
Unfortunately, Polynomial has thus lost the focus and is minimized.

Does anybody know why? Or how to prevent that happening?

Use Alt-Tab to return to Polynomial. It should reappear in full-screen mode.
If you've still got the 2 similar views next to each other, prod the 3D key again. Wait a few seconds.

Hi

Did you manage to get this online 3D game running in 3D?

From my knowledge depending on game, it does not work with glasses free 3D mode and work with 2D mode.

In your case I would recommend testing the glasses free 3D mode in connection with other games too.

Hi, this is my first entry to this site so bare with me if i mess it up

a few months ago i let my sister borrow my laptop. when i got it back the next day i turned it on and it started up as usual but before it went to the desk-top it came up with-

configuring updates: stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete
please do not turn off your computer

this is nothing new but it stays on 0% for 1/2 minutes then restarts, goes back to this page and does the same again, round and round in a loop.

i left it running like this for a couple of days to see if anything happened but still the same

does anyone know how to fix this?

A:update configuration HELP

Possibly, your sister powered down the laptop during updates. Try system restore from recovery console:If you have Windows XP CD... (if you don't have Windows CD, scroll down)1. Boot from the CD.2. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R:3. You'll find yourself at this screen:4. Once you are at the Recovery Console you will be given at least one choice of Windows installations. Normally the choice you want is the number 1 choice. Click the number 1 key at the "top" of the keyboard and click enter.NOTE: at this point your numbers to the right of your keyboard are turned off. If you insist on using these keys for your numbers remember to hit the Numbers Lock key before clicking a number over there or your computer will automatically reboot and you will have to wait through the previous steps to get back to the console. 5. You will be given a message asking for the administrator password. Unless someone or something has messed with your computer there is no password so you just click the Enter key. 6. This will bring you to a prompt that says: C:\WINDOWS>7. Type: cd \ Press EnterNote: between "cd" and "\" there should be a "blank space" otherwise the command won't work8. The prompt should now say:C:\>9. Type: cd system~1\_resto~1Press Enter.===============================================================================Note: If it gives... Read more

I first had a dial up modem. I got frustrated with that, so I got DSL. I got a virus, so I purchased Norton Internet Security package with firewall, etc. via download. When I attempted to use the Live Update feature, I got this message:

Initializing...
Connecting to liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com...
Unable to connect to host
LiveUpdate could not connect to your Internet Service Provider. Verify
your dial-up information is correct.
LiveUpdate session is complete.

I then deleted the dial-up configuration thinking that it would then recognize the DSL connection. Not so! I'm getting the same message. Any suggestions as to how I can get the Live Update feature to work for me? (Windows XP)

Hi PJ Staley,

Please do this. Click here to download Hijack This. Run Hijack this.
Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

*Note: When you download Hijack This Do Not download it to a temp folder or to the desktop. Create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This and put it in that folder.

Hey guys, I had an Updating issue recently and am still not clear on the best settings for the Update Settings?

I just installed a bunch of Optional and Recommended Updates, but was sure to exclude the Bad Guys for the W10 Upgrade stuff: KB3035583 and KB2952664

So I still don't know if this is the best or not. I was not accepting Optional and Recommended before, but since having this Update issue though I would change my actions.

This is my current setting:
1. ?Check for Updates but let me choose whether to download and install them? Is this good, or should I got with checking for them Manually.

Now wondering what this setting should be:
2. ?Give me Recommended Updates the same way I receive Important Updates?

Can someone shed some light on this for me? Thanks, Nasty7
