Q: New tutorials suggested

Not sure if I have put this in the right place but here goes
1. Browser Choice. In Europe we get this option. But when it is taken (I stayed with IE10) the Browser Choice App remains and I cant get rid of it. There seems to be no means to uninstall it. Tried various sites on the web nothing works.
2. In the useful tutorial on backup using W7 recovery in Control Panel there is an option to backup system image to an external drive. I have one @1Tb but it starts then says cant proceed drive full - when it clearly is not. Any ideas? Is it not possible to backup the system image to SkyDrive ?
3. I do not use the Start Screen (Metro) as such but do put into it useful stuff that I need at odd times eg Administrative Tools. There seems to be no way to resize or recolour the tiles apart from "large" or "small". This is a nuisance as it gets too big to fit the screen. I found a site on the web that says it does this but my Rapport tells me it is unsafe so I have not tried it.
4. Is there a way to sort a block on the start screen(Metro) alphabetically without dragging tiles around one at a time.
5. A tutorial on each of these would be grand. I have found tutorials truly useful generally.

I recommend trying the free service from Zip Cloud. It's currently our users' favorite backup and storage solution and will save you headaches down the line.

You can get it direct from this link http://goo.gl/rFYDxc. (This link will open the Zip Cloud homepage.)


What tutorials do you suggest I utilize for the following?
I want to setup on my home network with full access to anybody that is attached to my network (wired or wireless). I'm not worried about somebody driving down the street and making a wireless connection to my network. I think I have that well protected but I'm open for suggestions. If somebody attaches to my wireless network (I will have to give them the key) or they plug into the Ethernet then I want them to have full access to any of my shared drives without jumping through hoops. Entering the wireless password and mapping the drive is all that I want them to do. I'm totally open for suggestions and guidance. I looked through the tutorial index, but I have no idea which I should utilize.
I currently have one desktop and three laptops, all systems are running Win10 pro 10586.164. I've shared several drives on my desktop with full permissions. After upgrading to Win10 10586.164 one laptop can access all the shared drives and has full permissions. The other two laptops get an access error when they attempt to access any drive on the desktop (I get "You do not have permissions to access (drive). Contact your network administrator to request access.) I've spent hours searching for a solution and nothing I found helped.
My desktop has a clean install of Win10 with the upgrade to 10586.164. The three laptops are upgrades from Win8 to Win 8.1 to Win10 (early versions) to Win10 10586.164. I've been avoiding the cle... Read more

Like many of you...I have never taken the time to visit the tutorials available here at BC which cover various questions/points which some of us have.Until today .http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/...-Z-title-0.htmlI sincerely urge all of you who are not familiar with this resource...to take a few minutes and scroll through the list of topics which are covered. If you see somthing that you feel might be beneficial or interesting to delve into later...just go to that topic and then add that webpage to your favorites.I have an extended list of such references (almost 1,000) which I keep in a folder marked Computer Help in my Favorites and I find that doing this saves me a lot of time in seeking information that might help someone or myself.Louis

I followed the advice in Tutorials "How to update a Windows hardware driver" Using the prog recommended, it showed 41 good drivers and 17 bad drivers.
Using Device Manager I right clicked each item and 'updated drivers'. Every one came back saying ?The wizard could not find a better match?.?
I looked up one manufacturers web site and found updates but none related to my hardware
So the question is. Are they out of date, or not?


Most likely if they are working you shoudn't need to update them. The only reason to update your drivers is if certain components on the computer are not working correctly.

So, I'm a newbie to computer security, but it's definately an interesting subject. I see all of these gurus around these boards helping everyone they possibly can.

So where exactly did these gurus learn their tricks? I don't know, but I'd like to.

With my computer experience in programming and networking I've noticed the best and usually only way is to read, read, and read more. I didn't figure this as an exception. So, I'd like to suggest some tutorials. And also, list books if you can (I'll just read the tut.s to hold me down until I get one).

Here are the subjects I'd like to expand on:

The Registry

Thanks to those that can help.

A lot of you in your searches through the Net have run across this. I think, it should be made Sticky. Although it isn't from TSG, it should be recognized. I think that it would be an invaluable resource for not only the seasoned among us, but for those that are just looking for a, "How-To!", within Windows 7. So My proposal for this Sticky is this:

It's up to the Moderators and the Administrator from here.

I've been looking through the great tutorials here and have tried step by step to rid the computer of malware but no luck. It all started with Total Security. I tried to remove with anti-spyware of different types that I've had good luck with in the past. Now the computer has really gotten infected. I've tried using HJT, Maleware and others as the tutorials have mentioned. When I use them for the first time they will start then get killed off. When try to start from desktop after being saved after first initial setup it comes up error on all the anti-virus, and spyware, etc. that I've tried. Also task manager will not come up stating the administrator has turned off my access but I'm the administrator. Anyone ever heard of this? Thank you in advance!

I've been perusing through all the different topics and didn't see one that would encompass general PC maintenance to improve speed and start-up time? I know in working in the technology field, that is probably the most common question I get from friends and family. "My PC is so slow, what can I do"? I generally advise them the usual of ridding of junk files using the CCleaner utility, un-checking unnecessary items from the startup, and defragging if need be. Not sure if this is the best advice, but a good start nonetheless. Does anyone know if there is a good general PC maintenance tutorial on here or another site that would provide easy to follow steps for the average user on things they can do periodically to help improve the PC's speed on startup and in general?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
