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.)

i have recently bought TV Giant as i fancied a change from the regular type of games i usually play and this caught my eye. installation was fine and quick. the game then started up, got past all the manufacturer screens and got on to what looked like the loading screen, all five icons would light up to say that this has loaded then it would just shut off and go back to my desktop.

Recently my computer has started displaying giant pixels anytime I want to start up a computer game like The Sims or Trickster. For a while I thought it was just 3-d games that were not working but then I tried playing a 2-d pixel game, and I had the same problom, here is a screen cap of what I am talking about.

The computer that I am running is a eMachines T3256.
It has a nvidia GeForce 4 MX graphics card.
Is there anyways that I could fix this with buying a nother card, or downloading something, or will I have to take my computer in to someone to fix it?
 

A:Giant pixels, I need help

Re The Sims (original?) - your card should be able to play that

Re Trickster - your card doesn't support DX8 for 1.1 pixel shaders so probably cannot play that

Re the pixel problem - uninstall your present nVidia dtrivers in Add/Remove programs, reboot, and install the latest drivers.

edit: if the l;atest drivers don't fix it, uninstall them and try one of the 53.xx series - they apparently could, with hardware assisted software emulation, support vertex shader model 1.1.

When I add an attachment, the image appears huge to the receiver. How do I reduce the size of the image.
 

A:giant images

Hi carol, you would need to reduce the image size in a graphics program, like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro. Adobe Photoshop is rather expensive, but Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are arouns $100. There are free image editors out there, I just don't know the names of them, try going to http://www.download.com and look under the graphics section and there should be some editors there you could either download for free or atleast get a free trial to see if you like them. Hope I have helped.

Hi

I have had a virus installed on my computer called rebate giant. It has 2 files on my desktop (one called rebate informer and one called rebate giant). I know how to remove files through the registry editor and was wondering if anyone had the file paths for me to manually remove it??

Beth

A:Rebate informer/giant

I don't think rebate informer/rebate giant qualifies as a virus. It looks as though it installs an Inbox.com toolbar and some desktop shortcuts. Uninstall the applications, and the toolbar, and delete the shortcuts if they are left behind.

There are no files in the registry, but there are references to files. Be mindful of travels in the registry.

I just installed WIN XP on a virgin harddrive. I don't like icons on my desktop so I like to use quick launch for recycle bin. my ISP and Internet Explorer. When I checked quick launch my taskbar grew to double its size. No matter how I moved or squashed it, it was either gone or double, but never the normal size. As soon as I uncheck quick launch I can compress the taskbar back to normal. Ideas and fixes welcomed.

Have you got large icons selected for the quick launch taskbar?

To check, unlock the taskbar, then right-click on the quick-launch bar, and from the popup menu choose view, then large or small icons. Small icons will return the taskbar to normal size if this is what the problem is.

I somehow turned off the giant close button, the one you see in windows explorer, the internet window, and in winmail. The only problem is I liked the giant close button. I think what I did is change the theme to classic, and then back to vista, and it gave me this rounded box as a close button. I was just wondering if there was any way to put it back the way it was. Here is a picture

A:Giant Close button

Hello WeirdFrog, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I'm not sure of what you mean. That is the normal close button in Vista for non classic themes.

You might see if adjusting the size of the Caption Buttons item in the Advanced Appearance settings (step 6) to a large size may help. It will increase the size of the close button.

You can also change what pop-ups are allowed by going to Internet Options > Privacy > Pop-up Blocker Settings. Personally, I block all pop-ups and then whitelist any sites that I want to allow pop-ups from (or CTRL click links to open in a new window and bypass the pop-up blocker manually).

Who in their right mind released that in the year 2019?All the other manufacturers seem to be slowly cottoning on what the market wants (hint: not 16:9), yet here we seem to be stuck with completely wasted real estate on the laptops.It just makes no sense, the market is all about trying to get bigger screens in a smaller device.The easiest way to do that is to put a 14" 16:10/3:2 screen in a 12.5" body. Does Lenovo have any official word on this? They have so many unnecessary overlapping models, yet not a single offering that has what we all want. The XPS13 2-in-1 with the 16:10 screen is going to decimate sales.I've stayed true to my 8 year old X220 which is still going strong, yet unless something gets announced by Lenovo by end of July, it's bye bye lenovo from me.

PC giant warns of hardware trojan.

Computer maker Dell is warning that some of its server motherboards have been delivered to customers carrying an unwanted extra: computer malware. It could be confirmation that the "hardware trojans" long posited by some security experts are indeed a real threat.

News that Dell may have a hardware trojan problem emerged on a support forum after a user was warned by a Dell call centre that the firm's PowerEdge R410 server motherboard contains spyware of unspecified function that a Dell engineer needed to come and remove.

Dell confirms on the same forum: "The potential issue involves a small number of PowerEdge server motherboards sent out through service dispatches that may contain malware. This malware code has been detected on the embedded server management firmware."Click to expand...

Hello,

As you might've read from the title, English isn't my primary language but I'll try to describe it as best I can. I tried looking in the forum archives but had no luck.

I have a large collection of awesome images (photo's, concept art, ...), and while the image in it's entirety is amazing, sometimes I'd love to select a smaller portion of the image and put that as my wallpaper, and I don't think that's possible with Win7. I hope I described it well because I couldn't find the right words to condense it in the thread title. In other words, I'd love to have the ability to select a small portion of a much bigger image (10kpx file) so that this will fill an entire screen. Can anybody help me out?

Thanks in advance!

At some point a few months after I got my Sony VAIO the desktop icons became huge. It doesn't appear to affect working of the computer. However it gets pretty crowded with only two or three short cuts. It looks all kind of wrong.

I have looked for other advice. I have tried the screen resolution etc etc so I am all out of answers. Any help would be fantastic.

Hi KaneBridge
What you need to do is change the icon size from large to small just right click on the desktop view and small icons.

Good day all. Is anyone familiar with IM Giant Instant Messanger? When I researched it, it said that it was a program that can "easily consolidate your Im programs" (AOL, MSN etc.) It appeared on my desktop a few days ago. The kids swear that they don't know how it got there. My computer appears to be running fine.

1. Is it spyware? Spybot, adware, and AVG haven't shown anything out of the ordinary.
2. I would like to remove it. However, I can't find it in the Add/Remove programs list. Also, there is no uninstlall associated with the program. How do I get rid of it? Thanks!

When I attach jpg photos to an email, they show up in the attachment pane below the address. They also show up in the body of the email as super giant pictures. I didn't think that jpg format would do that. What do I need to reset???

My giant antispyware scans files, folders, cookies, etc... When I run a scan it freezes once it gets to scanning cookies. It never did that before & now all of a sudden it does. I was in my documents & files & other stuff like that eraseing some cookies. Is it some thing I did? Did I erase an impotant cookie? Or is it just coincidence & my giant antispyware program is just screwed up? & how can I fix it?

win 3.1 aand xp could not handle it. vista could shut the program down.
win7 64. is worse than 3.1!
it ends up snarling the whole computer and has to be powered down with the power button.
have 2 computers - both toshiba laptops both win7 64. one connects to the internet, the other never has.
both have the same problem.
sometimes they get to the 'logging off' or 'shutting down' screen - but it sits there for hours just showing the words and doing nothing - going nowhere.
task manager is no use here either
other than buying an apple - is there a solution?
thanks

Yes there is. But first we need you system specs, and OS version to start.

I've had my P4 1.7Ghz 256, PC800RD RAM, 64MB GeForce3, 80Gig HD computer for about a year now. Through the year the computer has worked absolutely perfectly. Great speed and performance...

Recently I installed SimCity4 which I discovered to be a game that takes up a lot of rescources... Not a big deal, I thought.. and even though I could hear my system working a lot while playing the game, everything seemed fine when I wasn't playing. The only strange to happen was one time it took almost 15 minutes to save a city I was building and the computer seemed like it was REALLY working hard to process the information

Then I decided to update my Norton Anti-Virus. I uninstalled 2002 and installed 2003. Here begins my own personal hell.

After upgrading Norton Anti-Virus I started noticing the computer lagging. I'd click the start button and the menu wouldn't pop up for 2 or 3 seconds. the Mouse curser would get jerky. and even closing programs and folders became delayed. Also, now after a while the H.D.D. light on the computer's tower will suddenly stay on until I shut down the computer and restart it. This even happens when I have no apps running. I've checked the task manager in XP and the performance tab shows a normal amount of CPU usage, there's no suspicious processes hogging up memory. And yet at times I also hear a sound that sounds like the computer is about to power down for a split second but recovers (kind of like a power skip sound)

I use IE6 and Win98. When I send pictures as attachments with Outlook Express 6, the attachments come through in normal size, BUT the pictures are also shown in the body of the email in GIANT size (only a small portion of the picture is shown). Is there a way that I can eliminate the picture in the body of the email and just send the attachment? It takes a long time to send the message and I assume that sending the picture in two different sizes is part of the cause. I have no problem with the attachments but would like to get rid of also sending the Large picture. Can anybody help? A change in settings, maybe?

I recently purchased Hotel Giant 2 and attempted to play the game today. There were two error messages: "sys3d select display mode error" and "sys3de init driver error". I updated my video driver using the Lenovo website; this made no difference.

I also noticed today that when I attempted to open the ATI CATALYST(R) Control Center, there was an error message. The message was: "Could not load file or assembly 'CLI.Implementation' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.".

Are these two issues related? Another (possibly) related problem I'm having is that my multiple monitor capability has disappeared. My [right click>properties>setting>advanced>monitor] leads to this screen:

Previously, I was able to toggle between different displays, etc.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

I started a new thread as suggested in the other discussion.

I picked up a new HP laptop the other day and the icons in the context menu are giant. I remember HP installed a start menu program or something similar when I first booted up.

But as usual with all non MS Signature PCs, I did a crapware/bloatware cleanup. Deleted every single HP installed program until it's a clean state. (The reason I didn't do a fresh install is because of the beats theme....).

I removed that start menu program but the icons are still giant.
It seems like the system icons are affected but program-specific icons aren't. e.g. Chrome's icons for webpages aren't affected. But pin to taskbar and close window are.

Any suggestions?

A:(Same as Others) Giant icons in taskbar Context Menus [HP]

Read through the other thread. Uninstalled update KB307231 and that fixed the issue.
