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.)


Hi all,

I have 2 adapter, same model same speed. When I use "route print" command to check the table, they are the same metric.

I need to use the designated adapter to connect a server. How can I make sure this adapter is higher priority in the route table. 
Remark: This PC is not allow to set the route table. I have to use the automatic metric algorithm.

I have tried a few different windows images, windows troubleshooting feature, and the latest versions of the drivers.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, disabling and re-enabling, re-imaging, updating windows. None have had the effect of actually making it work. I'm running win 10.0.10240, on dell latitude 5285 and 5289. This is affecting the entire Intel Integrated Sensor Solution Driver and all the included sensors, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope GPS and ambient light.

Lately, I've noticed all of my applications (Word, Photoshop, etc.) use the metric system of measurement. I'm not sure why this started, but I'd like it to go back to the imperial system. Do you know how I can change this default setting? Thanks!


A:Metric system!

I don't know about Photoshop, but in Word you can go to

Tools -> Options -> General tab and check that the measurement units are in inches

Entering "measurement" in Windows Help gained this information:

To change the way your computer displays numbers
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
On the Numbers tab, specify any changes you want to make.
Among items you can change are the decimal symbol and list separator, the format used for negative numbers and leading zeros, and the measurement system (U.S. or metric).


To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.

I'm looking for an solution for an random issue on my clients computers (Windows 7 or 10).
They connected to an business vpn with Juniper network connect.
As usual, to be sure the computer use the vpn network to make dns reolution etc... the virtual network card created by juniper is using metric 1 to have the top priority.
That's working well since 1 or 2 years.
For an unknown reason When they connect to the vpn some computers keep the internet gateway instead of using the one provided by juniper vpn...
The solution we've found is to edit the juniper metric from 1 to 2 and after ipconfig /flushdns the route table is using the vpn gateway..the pb is, juniper create an virtual card each connections, so it is deleted when the users disconnect his vpn session.
I don't know why but the computers seems not update the route table when connecting to vpn..
We tried :
 - changing from ethernet to wireless or 3G/4G internet source
 - change the network card order in advanced parameters from the networking center..
 - route -f is not workingg

Do you have any idea..?

Hey guys,
I am using a 3G modem (Virgin Mobile MC760). In short; I have 2 connections; 1 is wired ethernet and the other is this 3G modem. I want to be able to use the 3G modem in a guest Vmware system while still using my regular ethernet for everything else in the host. (Unfortunately this modem doesn't work in VM so I am stuck having 2 internet connections in Win7 and trying to route this).

I have read up on metric values but heres the problem. I set the ethernet for a metric value of 1 and the 3g connection as 9999, ethernet alone works fine, as soon as I connect the 3g modem it takes priority and changes my metric value of the ethernet higher and creates a default gateway, when my ethernet is The only way around this is if I disconnect my ethernet and reconnect it, it will then take priority and have both be connected and use ethernet.

Is there any solution to this?

I looked forward to opening 'publisher' for the first time to see if I could produce an item to fit into a magazine/newspaper. I made my initial box-size and then discovered that IT'S ALL IN IMPERIAL! Considering that most of the people in the world use Metric and don't mess up our engineering and space stations by making stuff in imperial, why would Microsoft imagine that imperial works here. We went Metric in '71... Put it in Metric and let the yanks find the box marked 'Imperial'...
Anyhoo, I'm looking for the box to tick to choose to have the scales in Metric please, as I can't find it simply. Please may someone tell me...?

A:Changing scales to metric? (Publisher, PPT, etc...)

The horizontal and vertical rulers in Microsoft Publisher 2007 can be changed to display a different type of measurement unit. By default, the rulers in Publisher display inches, but you can change them to a variety of other measurement units.
For microsoft Publisher 2007.


1 Once you're in your document, choose the "Tools" menu, and click "Options" to open the "Options" dialog box.2 Select the "General" tab at the top of the "Options" dialog box, if necessary, to display the basic settings for Microsoft Publisher.3 Click the arrow to display the "Measurement units" drop-down list from the "Options" dialog box. These are the different types of measurements you can display on the Publisher rulers. Choose the measurement you want from choices that include inches, centimeters, picas, points or pixels.4 Click the "OK" button to close the "Options" dialog box and return to your Publisher document. Your rulers will display with the measurement you picked. Use the same process to switch back to the original measurement or to choose a new unit of measurement.

I have had windows 7 for a few weeks and every time the PC is rebooted the Metric for both the Lan (172.17) and Wifi(192.169)goes back to 20, the Lan is set to Automatic and the wifi is set to 10, has anybody seen this problem before?

Active Routes:
Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric 20 20


A:problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

Sounds quite bizzare, Windows assigns a lower metric to the gateway it can communicate the fastest with, but in this case both have been assigned 20.
If you've manually assigned a gateway and metric you should see that in the list of persistent routes.

I wonder if your issue is similar to that in http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/47280-how-configure-multiple-gateways.html

Hi, I'm new to this forum, and hope to solve my problem with some expert guidance.

The problems started with me trying to create a shared file in onenote, which could be edited and viewed by all users of my computer. In the UAC, it asked me about some permission about "INTERACTIVE" and "SERVICE", if I remember right. I allowed it to do so, and hoped to set up the notebook in the public documents folder.

But, since then, the libraries (Documents, music, etc) reported being "Unresponsive" when I clicked on "Includes: 2 locations".

Also, the "See more results" link in the start menu reports an error as in the picture:

I recently installed Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in my computer, and then tried opening it in Guest account, but it just shows the following:


Then it shows:

And then it disappears, and nothing happens. I'm unable to open the software even when I applied read&exec permissions for guest in the folder containing the program. Path: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Architecture 2011 (The folder containing the program)... (acad.exe)

All the other apps like chrome, pdf, etc are running without any problem, as this problem arose after their installation.

The company I work for has recently gotten a new Internet connection at their farm across the street. Originally the time clock was placed there and monitored over the LAN on the computer that I am at right now. Now that there is a new connection I need to know how to connect the time clock on the other internet connection to this PC. Networking has never been my strong suit. any help would be appreciated!


P.S. The time Clock is an anviz EP300 and the PC is running windows 8.1

A:Solved: Connect Bio-metric time clock to another network?

Hi Bumbers, and welcome to TSG.

Does the new connection at the other building have at least one static public IP address? If not, things may get a bit more complicated.

Beyond that, you will need to set up whatever modems and routers are being used across the street to port forward from the Internet public IP address to the private IP address of the time clock on the LAN. Having the time clock use a static IP address on the LAN, rather than get its IP address via DHCP would also simplify things.

It appeared to me that only registered users on the Anviz web site can download product manuals. I have no idea if or how the time clock can be properly configured to use a static IP address, the port numbers used, or the type of security it offers. Once you have port forwarding configured, the time clock will be exposed to attacks from the Internet.

After you have everything configured at the other location, you should be able to use the public IP address of the other location to access the clock from your location.

I have been to the section of Win7 personalization where metrics are stored for text display.

If you look at the window options section for borders and such, and select a metric in ("Change Windows colors and metrics" will get you there in the search box) -- everything seems to be in there except the area called window text. Window text is in the illustrated screen area. I can make a screen shot if necessary.

Going to the selections that default at an item called Desktop then right click to open, Window text is not there. An Item called Window (single word) is.

The goal is to have my files and folders show larger in -- Explorer I guess-- and in the network file folders I have in an old style workgroup set up for the home.

I have tried all of the options at the metrics screen but have failed to get a simple folders and files list to display in a larger font.

I have a question that I can't find the answer for, I've been searching like crazy but keep finding the same responses which have in my case proven useless.
The situation is this: I have one router and one computer, the computer has two network interface cards which are both connected to the router and given IP addresses. I have made the metrics in Windows such that normal traffic SHOULD always choose NIC 1 and I have in the application "Tixati" set it manually to use NIC 2. I have then set my firewall to only allow the application "Tixati" to use NIC 2 while blocking it from using NIC 1. So in theory everything on my computer should use NIC 1 except "Tixati" which should use NIC 2.
The problem: The issue is that for some reason Windows will sometimes think it's a good idea to just straight up switch over to using NIC 2 for ALL traffic, even though it has a waaaay higher metric (static permanent routes) and the firewall is blocking access for the applications on that interface, which results in the applications being straight up blocked. This is temporarily solved by disabling and enabling NIC 1... Until it happens again.
The cause: I just straight up don't know, I do however think it has something to do with Windows probably trying to use a different NIC at the slightest hint of an issue with the main NIC, it often happens during web browsing and I even found one specific website that seemingly caused this issue every time I reloaded...

Hey guys,
How much is a processor worth? The gold I mean. I have some with pins that are tin covered with gold , but some older chips (like a motorolla) are solid gold.
I have a pretty decent socket CPU collection ranging from a very old Motorola chip to AMD64 bit, and other Intel, AMD, Micron, etc processors. I've been doing this for about a year. I pull them from coputers my company recycles to the state (sorry if you bought a pallet full of stripped equiptment).
I have about 150 of them. I only have two of each to show the front and back for display. They were pulled from working machines.

I know recyling computer circuitry is about $2.50 a pound, but a processor has more gold doesn't it? I can't find an answer on google.

Another question is, I was wondering if anyone else does this? I collect wierd things like Pez dispensers, precious gems, coins, and baseball cards (the last two was when I was a kid - still have collections).
I have a S' load of memory too, but my geek factor cannot justify calling that a collection.


A:CPU collection.

The gold on the processor is only 10-20 microns thick, it'll take a LOT of processors to connect any significant value of gold.

I'm not into games big time but the ones I do like , I like a lot.

I thought I'd nothing to lose by installing an old one...Sid Meier's Civil War Collection. It came out in the middle 1990's & has always been my favorite. It never would play right on XP (no sound) when XP was released although there is one XP patch that allows partial sound in the Gettysburg part. The best one though is the Antietam battle but I never could get the sound to work.

Anyway I installed it on my Vista64 & , to my surprise , it all plays great !! I did not even have to do any compatibility setups.

The ironic thing is how the game uses hardware resources. I have a 8800GT GNU & it hardly raises its temp a degree. But my CPU (Xeon E3110 Wolfdale 3.0GHz) gets a real workout.

Don't know why the game works in Vista64 but not XP. I'm just glad it does. So if anyone has some oldie but goodies laying around thinking they'd never work in Vista should think again & give them a try.

Nowadays, how do you guys do that? In the past, the best way to do that was using the command line versions of those AVs. I remember using the KAV 3.0, which was very fast to scan! Since newer versions of kaspersky and another AVs add so much garbage to their logs or can now produce a concise log, how do you even scan your collection?

Anyway, to the point.

Over the past few days (About a week) my computer has been having various problems.

Using XP home edition.

First, it started with random disconnections while torrenting, which would eventually lead to a complete internet loss. I put this down to my ISP throttling my connection due to me 'file sharing'. However, it seems I was wrong from what I have read from other users.

That's been going on for months now. I thought nothing of it really.

However, as of recent, it's moved to my entire connection, even when not torrenting. I disconnect around every hour. Which is annoying to say the least.

Another problem is that I cannot unplug my audio cable, nor any cable from the back of my computer. Doing so results in my computer freezing. Even at booting or in BIOS.

I've also been getting 'Generic Host Service Error's randomly from time to time. This error forces your entire computer to be shutdown, even gives you a count down. I've used system restore. So, as to if that's fixed the problem, I have no idea. It's not happened yet, then again, I've not had my computer on for that long.

At one stage my external hard drive had apparently become unformatted, this was fixed by turning it off ... Read more

I have recently purchased the Mechwarrior Mech Collection Pak.

It has Mech4 Vengeance, Mech4 Black Knight Expansion, and Mech Commander 2
I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to make a back up copy of these cd's. I've tried several methods but so far nothing has worked.

A:MechWarrior Mech Collection

for those who wish to know.

The mech cd's (as well as many many others) copy perfectly with software called CloneCD. I downloaded a trial from

so far, the only game that I haven't been able to make a backup copy of is Diablo 2.

The Cinematics cd, the install cd, and the LoD expansion, all burned fine. The only one that didnt was the play cd. It will say it burns ok, but then it will hang at a certain point in the install.
Other than that i have made backup copies of my Warcraft III, All my Mechwarrior Cd's. Going to try my starcraft cd's next.

The worst thing in the world, is to go to play one of your favorite games and it is scratched so badly that it doesnt work.

This way, instead of having to purchase another copy, you can make a backup and play from the burned cd. Thus keepin your original in mint condition.
