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 created several DVD's from jpeg files for my grandson's birthday usung Muvee autoProducer. Spent several hours on the project. Plays fine on my computer. Took it to the TV/DVD in the living room and the sucker wouldn't play. Went to my son's house, stuck it his TV/DVD player and it worked fine. Same thing happened several times. Can someone explain to me what the difference is in DVD players? or is it the cheap media I bought?Or WHAT??

A:Differences between 8x and 4x AGP

There isn't really much of a difference between the 2. Your 9600 will just run at agp 4x insted of 8x. The performance difference, if any, will be very small. Maybe a couple of percent.

As a pre-afterthought, sorry about the length of this post >.<

I am in the market for a new gaming rig (woohoo) and this being my first real gaming specific build, i was wondering if anyone could help me decide on a CPU. Although i am not on a very tight budget, i would prefer to send less than more, so my question is this: what would be the visible differences between running a AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition, dual core, 3.1ghz with a 7mb cache AND a AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition, triple core, 2.8ghz, 7.5mb cache (45nm construction).

I will be OC'ing and have no qualms about adding extra cooling.

Range: around 1,200$CAD, i will guess that with exchange and other fees that might be around 850$US. 900$ MAX.

Just wondering if anyone has any info on differences that may affect my ultimate purchasing decision. Thanks for taking the time to reply, and i hope to be able to help some of you in the future.

A lot of people seemed to be confused on why IE8 has two versions in the 64-bit version of Windows Vista/7, and which one they should be using. I'm here to make this simple for those users.



How to tell which you are running

To tell which version of IE you are running, you just need to go here and click About Internet Explorer.



The 32-bit version will say something along the lines of Version: 8.0.7xxx.xxxxx.
The 64-bit version will say something along the lines of Version: 8.0.7xxx.xxxxx 64-bit Edition.



Why two versions? We only need one!

A lot of users are confused as to why Microsoft put both a 32-bit and 64-bit copy of Internet Explorer in 64-bit Windows Vista/7.

The reason is quite simple really. While the move from 32-bit to 64-bit is speeding up, there are still addons/plugins for programs such as Internet Explorer that do not currently work in their 64-bit counterparts. A good example for a plugin that doesn't work in 64-bit Internet Explorer is Microsoft's Silverlight Plugin.



Which should I run?



   Warning
This is my person opinion, if you disagree with it, that is fine and dandy. Try not to wage a war about it.


If you need to use Silverlight, or any other plugin that does not have a 64-bit compatible counterpart, I suggest using 32-bit Internet Explorer.

If you do not need Silverlight, or any other plugins that do not support 64-bit Internet Explorer, I suggest using 64-bit Internet Explorer.

A:Differences between IE 32-bit and 64-bit

I don't recommend going 64 bit IE at all, even if you don't care about 32 bit plug ins.

There are big reasons to go 64bit for the OS, mainly to open up the address space, but for applications that don't need multiple Gigabytes of RAM, it really isn't going to matter.

In theory You might benefit from a wider registers, but in reality with most computationally intensive apps being coded in using the FPU or some extension (MMX/SSE/3d Now), so computation benefits of 64 bit registers will be mitigated.

Interesting bit:
I ran Peacemaker benchmark and scored ~20% lower with the 64 bit IE than the 32 bit version(~1000 in IE 32 bit, ~800 in IE 64 bit) . This kind of surprised me. I expected them to be essentially identical. Anyone else want to give it a shot?

Hi, I bought a 19" wide monitor about 3 months ago. ofcourse the manufacture did not put a dvi cable in the box (which it was supposed to come with). So I've been useing the vga cable the whole time. My video card is the GeForce 7950GT. My main question is.... Would there actually be a difference If I used a DVI cable instead of a VGA, and if there was a differnce, is it worth me going out and buying a DVI cable. tahnks alot! -Nick
 

A:vga vs. dvi, what are the differences?

There would be a difference with using a DVI. I'm assuming your monitor is an LCD, in which case using VGA causes the originally digital signal from the video card to be converted to analog, then converted back into digital upon reaching the monitor. This results in a loss of quality.

What are the differences between TS and TSE? Is the protection/signature update frequency different? Is there a firewall (it it's Glasswire, does Glasswire provide better protection than Windows Firewall?)? Finally, how does 360 compare to Eset.

Many thanks and Happy Holidays.
 

A:Differences Between Qihoo TS and TS

TSE is actually all of the basics of 360 TS.

What you do get with 360 TSE:

360 a-v/behavior monitor with all engines including BitDefender and Avira
Sandbox (same as 360 TS)
I think you get the browser protection add on (this is very good in conjunction with the a-v program/includes shopping and banking mode/can be added via extensions also for Chrome, IE, or Firefox)
I think you get patch up, which is an alternate way to get Windows updates. It can be turned off too.

What you do not get with 360 TSE:
Default system cleaner
Default system speedup analyzer
Default 360 Connect (Connect PC to PC with anyone using 360 TS)
Toolbox Registry cleaner
Toolbox Instant Setup (programs like Flash)
Toolbox Game Booster
Toolbox TurboVPN (limited use for free)
Toolbox System Backup Cleaner
Toolbox Firewall-Glasswire free version. Not technically a firewall, although individual IPs can be blocked with free. Excellent monitor of resource usage and by far the best of all free apps I have ever seen for monitoring daily, weekly, monthly net usage. Can be downloaded without 360 TS.
I don't think 360 TSE shows boot times on boot. May sound stupid, but I have seen some switch over this. TS shows boot times.

Glasswire is great if you are resource conscious. One thing about that. You can download Glasswire separately too. Google "download glasswire". With Glasswire, you can see exactly which IPs have EVER contacted your PC and so on. However, no way could anyone ever spot malware a... Read more

This description of AGP is pretty clear:

Accelerated Graphics Port. An interface specification from Intel that enables 3-D graphics to display quickly on personal computers. AGP is based on PCI, but is designed especially for the high throughput requirements of 3-D graphics. Rather than using the PCI bus for graphics data, AGP introduces a dedicated point-to-point channel so that the graphics controller can directly access main memory which ultimately affects what you see and how you see it on your monitor.

Now I have a 2-year old 1.7ghz CPU Biostar computer and the motherboard was replaced the other day. When I got home my XP standby button was grayed out. I reinstalled the AGP file/folder from the company's site (Aopen) but that did no good. I then installed the VGA driver from the CD that came with the motherboard. Then the Standby button was back to normal. Hooray!

So I learned 1 thing which the VGA system on my computer does.

My question is what else specifically, is the VGA system designed to do? It does appear to be rather separate from AGP. And does it run the display on the monitor or does the AGP do that?

I am trying to locate a PCI-X card to be used in a HP Proliant DualCore computer to get higher resoultion on my monitor (not for games).

Some people say that PCI cards will work. Most say that PCI-E will not.

Since I am using Windows 7 and the PCI-X cards are supposed to be the fastest, how do I find a PCI-X card with Windows 7 drivers? I also heard that a card designed for XP might work in "compatability mode", but have no idea how to do this.

Will this whole thing boil down to finding Windows 7 drivers for a PCI-X card?

A:Differences in PCI, PCI-X, and PCI-E for Windows 7

PCI-X (PCI-eXtended) is an out dated, technology based on the old out dated PCI technology. PCIe (PCI-Express) has pretty much replaced PCI and PCI-X. In either case, you don't just throw a PCI-X card into your computer, you need to have PCI-X slots which most likely you do not have. PCI-X never took off in the consumer market outside of servers and mainframes.

I finally updated to 8.1 two days ago and since then I have noticed that there is a difference in the search capabilities.

Basically I'm a contract worker and over the past year I have created hundreds of images, each I named with keywords in the name such as "society-people-crowd" and "pay-stub" to help me pull up the images quickly.

However, after the upgrade, windows 8.1 is no longer finding anything after the hyphen. For example, if I search for "crowd" in the first image named society-people-crowd, it will no longer find it, whereas with 8.0 it would find it no problem.

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but I memorized certain keywords and now have lost a way to quickly bring up images (some I can no longer find) based on my naming convention. Does anyone know of any setting that would fix this? Or would I have to system restore to before installing 8.1? Any help is appreciated!

Isn't a laptop a PC as well? Do you mean a laptop and a desktop computer?

If nothing is displayed clearly on the "PC" and you are using an LCD monitor with it, it could be that the video controller card is not configured to match the native resolution of the LCD monitor. This causes the monitor to scale down or scale up the incoming video to fit the screen. This can cause blurry pixels.

What software are you using to display the downloaded pictures? If the sizes of the software's viewing windows (in pixels) are different on each computer, then the software is scaling the pictures by different amounts to fit the viewing window. This can cause blurry pixels as well.

I have Windows 8 (not 8.1) on my desktop PC. I spend 99% of my time in the
desktop environment since it's non-touch with a keyboard and a mouse. I don't
think I have ever used the snap features on this device.

On my Windows 8.1 tablets, I can snap my desktop screen with any Metro app and
I have done so in the past. So, my wife was on my desktop PC and she had launched
a PDF in one of the default Metro readers and was wanting to view it while accessing
a spreadsheet in Excel on the desktop. I sat down and thought this would be easy I would
just snap the screens. Now, I was using a mouse because again, my monitor is not touch
screen but I could not get it to snap like on 8.1.

Maybe it was the way I was doing it, but I got the impression that Windows 8 won't snap
the desktop and a Metro screen like in 8.1?

A:Differences Windows 8 and 8.1

They have improved the Snap view feature in Windows 8.1, the main problem with windows 8 is that the pixel width was pre defined and one of the sides was very small. with windows 8.1 they gave you much more flexibility.

Hey,
I was wondering the price of a normal P6T is 250 Dollars in my country.
The deluxe is 350 Dollars. And as far as i have seen, there are no real differences between them, except that the normal P6T has 6 PCI Slots while the Deluxe has only 2.

So, i googled it, and they have only fixed some bugs and added one ethernet port. Thats ridiculous! I have paid 100 bucks more for some bug fixes and less PCI Slots?

So i wanted to know, is there really a big difference between them that are worth 100 bucks? Cause 6 PCI Slots are really awesome.

A:Differences between the P6T// P6T Deluxe /// V2

Huh?

The vanilla P6T has three PCI-E X16 slots, one PCI-E 1X slot, and two PCI slots.

The P6T Deluxe V2 has the same number, although the slots are in a different order.

(I have an older Deluxe, which includes an SAS controller, which I'll probably never use.)

I don't see any P6T variants with more PCI slots. Seaching my favorite online resource (www.newegg.com) doesn't return any Socket 1366 boards with more than 3 PCI slots.

The P6T Deluxe has some, er, deluxe features, like 16 phase power. Whether any of these enhance the overclocking ability of the board, I have no idea. I bought the Deluxe because it semed to have better BIOS support. (That doubtlessly guaranteed that it would be taken out of production and replaced with the V2.)

I have not been able to track down if there are any substantial differences between the enterprise and pro versions, but apparently there has to be because our licensing program works fine on the 64-bit Pro version. If nothing else, has anyone found any OS differences in these two?

My guess is it has to be .Net related, because our code is 100% reliant on that to activate our user's software. Any help would be very appreciated! We are stuck.

A:Version differences

This problem is specific to whatever licensing system you are using. It sounds like it may be related to ActiveX or COM objects, which are specific to 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

What licensing system are you using?

What are the differences between TS and TSE? Is the protection/signature update frequency different? Is there a firewall (it it's Glasswire, does Glasswire provide better protection than Windows Firewall?)? Finally, how does 360 compare to Eset.

Many thanks and Happy Holidays.
 

A:Differences Between Qihoo TS and TSE

TSE is actually all of the basics of 360 TS.

What you do get with 360 TSE:

360 a-v/behavior monitor with all engines including BitDefender and Avira
Sandbox (same as 360 TS)
I think you get the browser protection add on (this is very good in conjunction with the a-v program/includes shopping and banking mode/can be added via extensions also for Chrome, IE, or Firefox)
I think you get patch up, which is an alternate way to get Windows updates. It can be turned off too.

What you do not get with 360 TSE:
Default system cleaner
Default system speedup analyzer
Default 360 Connect (Connect PC to PC with anyone using 360 TS)
Toolbox Registry cleaner
Toolbox Instant Setup (programs like Flash)
Toolbox Game Booster
Toolbox TurboVPN (limited use for free)
Toolbox System Backup Cleaner
Toolbox Firewall-Glasswire free version. Not technically a firewall, although individual IPs can be blocked with free. Excellent monitor of resource usage and by far the best of all free apps I have ever seen for monitoring daily, weekly, monthly net usage. Can be downloaded without 360 TS.
I don't think 360 TSE shows boot times on boot. May sound stupid, but I have seen some switch over this. TS shows boot times.

Glasswire is great if you are resource conscious. One thing about that. You can download Glasswire separately too. Google "download glasswire". With Glasswire, you can see exactly which IPs have EVER contacted your PC and so on. However, no way could anyone ever spot malware a... Read more

Hey guys,
 
 
I recently stepped over security matters and some programs which you guys appear to use for cleaning other people's pc's.
 
now i've read somewhere that you HAVE TO use such programs, although obiously you could remove the files manually, it wouldn't be safe to do at all.. but this is where they stopped - they didnt write why these programs - or a non-manually-deleting - is so important.
or whatever would be wrong with just deleting the files manually... where's the difference??? 
 
anyone?

A:differences between deletion

Hello there,When you delete a file (by selecting it and choose "Delete", Windows only removes the reference to the file - the actual contents is still on the hard disk. This makes it possible to retrieve the contents via data recovery tools.On the other hand, using secure delete programs will permanently erase files by overwriting the contents on the disk with zeroes, making it impossible to recover.Hope this helps Regards,Alex

explorer on win 7 (non classic) has changed the address bar so it is no longer obvious
with two windows opened on two different drives which window is opened on which drive and path.
I am not sure of the terminology but I will call it a tree view.
I tend to do a lot of file deletions and copy/paste operations between two drives and not being
able to see the entire path makes me nervous. One aspect for the better though is that
I am now changing some bad habits like using shift delete.

The solution for the address bar issue has been to use explorer++

Also I have to wonder about removing the up arrow?
