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.)

A: Chromebook differences


Looking at the specifications side by side they appear to be the same.

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??

the 9600 will suck bad
is this true?
if so, whats the difference between 8x and 4x agp?
if there is any!
thanx in advance

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.

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?

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.

I have just converted my HP Pavilion laptop to Win 7 from XP and tried to set up the same Documents library on it. However I can't seem to make the Pavilion look like my desktop. One screen shot below is from the desktop and the other is from the laptop.

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

In a different Vista thread, the issue of registry cleaners was the topic. The more senior members advised against using them. Others (myself included) suggested cleaners to use. The dichotomy in response illustrates a plague dogging users from the dawn of the personal computer era.

For some, computer expertise underpins rationale and conclusion. For others, pragmatism and real-world considerations are the underpinning. The release of Windows Vista compounds the dichotomy and complicates some usage issues for the broad universe of users lacking depth in the computer-world.

Vista, available in multiple versions, is preloaded so buyer decision-making is exponentially complicated right off the bat with considerations of machine specifics and operating system features. (Because many buyers are unaware their decision-making has been complicated does not remove the complexity; it only increases the likelihood they will make bad decisions.) Except at the high end--where expertise could be expected to be generally available--Vista doesn't even come with a system restore disk. Again, Microsoft and computer manufacturers are conspiring (not necessarily with sinister intent) to demand users develop a level of expertise that has little or no utility beyond demands to serve malfunctioning machines.

The case of cleaners illustrates the differences in expert and novice approach. The expert knows cleaners can cause damage, some complicated, some expensive, some dangerous.

Windows 2000 Pro is what is known as a client operating system. Which means, it is used for a stand alone computers or on a computer that connects to a network/Server.

Windows 2000 Server is a operating system that client operating systems connect to or authenticate through on a network to share information.

Windows 2000 Adv Svr is the same thing as server but you have the ability to connect two computers together and make them ask as a backup for each other. This feature is called “clustering”

i have Rogers high speed internet. it says its 18 mbps which sounds fast, faster than any other isp i've been able to find. i enjoy the speed but i can't deal with the 95 GB usage i practically use it all in the first half of the month.

i've found a number of isp's which provide unlimited access but they are all at speeds like 3 mbps DL. they are also signifigantly cheaper. if i was to switch to one of these would i notice a difference in speed
btw i live in toronto canada if you know of any isp's the would meet my need please let me know

A:speed differences

Woah, 18mbps? That's faster than you'll ever, ever need. Always go for the unlimited instead. It's a waste to have such a high speed if you can't even download everything you want. Even 3mbps is very fast. The average server doesn't even send information back at 1mbps, only very good ones, so you won't notice any "lagging behind" for a long time. So don't worry, you're find 3mbps.

Hello, a couple of days ago I did some experimets in my LAN. I am using MacBook Pro 13" retina (wireless and USB-Ethernet 100Mbps adapter), small HP MicroServer G6 running Windows Server 2012 (1Gbps network adapter) and Mikrotik RB941-2nD hAP Lite 100Mbps router. The main purpose of my server is network-attached storage using SMB protocol. For some reason I'm getting very low transfer speeds for example:
- MacBook Wi-Fi -> Server in 100Mbps router port - 7,03 Mbps
- MacBook 100Mbps eth. adapter -> Server in 100Mbps router port - 17,74 Mbps
- MacBook 100Mbps eth. adapter -> Server ... both in 1Gbps switch - 28 Mbps

So at first, I don't understand why is Wi-Fi so slow, laptop is only half a meter away from router (Wi-Fi N standard), and second, how is that when both devices are in 1Gbps switch, connection is 10 Mbps faster than they are in 100 Mbps router - USB->Ethernet adapter for my MacBook is also 100 Mbps - why is 100 Mbps on adapter something different than 100 Mbps on router. Thanks for your answer in advance, I am getting crazy of this.

I want to get an upgrade for MS Word 2000 which came on my computer in 2005. I use it sometimes and it's time to really get serious and learn the program's capabilities. I want to use other software that comes in the suite, too IF I can afford the upgrade to them. I discovered this week that MS Office 2003 comes in many different iterations such as the student/teacher edition, basic ed., home office ed., sm. business ed., standard ed., professional ed., plus many, many more of them (including some third party look alikes or add ons). I searched all over the MS website and I found a comparison chart of the 2007 versions, but not of 2003. I want to know what is actually in the box that I'd be buying. Example: what VERSION of Word 2003 it is they're selling in these package? (Knowing the year, version or the release number would be great!). Is the version in the box actually any different from what I already have? Where can I find out the specifics of each of these different items now being sold?

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?

Hey, Guys...I have a question about some USB cords.

I have noticed that some USB cords will not work will some HDDs, or at least not as well. Usually, if one won't work, I have to switch to a larger cord. Usually, the larger the HDD capacity, the more likely that the small diameter cords won't work.

I have one cord (came with a 120GB WD portable HDD) that is a double cord. It has the standard USB plug on the end that goes to the computer, and one large cord with the usual small plug for portable HDDs, and one smaller cord with a standard USB plug (stamped POWER).

I recently purchased a 7" Polaroid portable media player. It came with a large diameter cord, with the standard USB plug on one end, and the same plug that the WD HDD uses on the other. When plugged into the computer, it works for data transfer and as a battery recharger. When first plugged in, a large graphic of a battery comes up on the player's screen, with a representation of power being added to the battery. (A slow movement of a bar going up and down the battery.)

However, when using the large double cord mentioned above, the graphic of the battery filling up moves much faster, and the player appears to charge much quicker. Of course, I am only using the larger cord of the double which looks just like the cord that came with the player...the other smaller cord of the double is not hooked to anything. (as a matter of fact, I have not found any use for the smaller cord of the double yet)

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.

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??? 

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

A:GPU brand differences?

Judging from newegg, it seems to be a matter of core clock frequency, heatsink, and fan included. Faster Core Clock = Better.

The 395.00 ASUS one has a core clock of 350mhz. The 378.00 GIGABYTE has 400mhz core clock speeds. I'm sort of surprised that the GIGABYTE clock is faster, while being cheaper. Also, the GIGABYTE has 2 DVI outputs compared to 1 on the ASUS model. After looking at them both for abit now, I can't see any huge differences that constitutes the ASUS being more expensive. It most likely boils down to the stock heatsink/fan, which is VERY important. You'd have to ask someone who has the ASUS version if RAM on the card is covered by the fan. If it isn't you'll most likely encounter high temperatures. Same goes for the GIGABYTE.

I read the GIGABYTE reviews, and one guy's card came with the full version of Doom 3. That might be a good place to start gaming with your new system. However, if you do get an ASUS mobo, it might be best to get the ASUS version card. There should be absolutely no problems installing the two and getting them to play nicely.

One last thing: If you do go with ASUS, make sure to get the 256mb GDDR3 version, not the 128mb variant. I think it'd make a difference on such a bleeding-edge card.

Is there a difference between these cables? Specifically, if you are looking at them how can you tell the difference? I suppose you have to use them first but there must be a better way of telling. Thanks!

A:USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 cables- differences?

USB2 cables should be marked as such. They will physically interchange but the slower cable will slow down everything.

Last week I emailed MS helpdesk for the first time. I wanted to know if it was possible to vary useful settings instead of just cosmetic settings using logon user accounts.

Instead of answering me, I got a lovely email from the US helpdesk saying that it would be impossible for them to help since there are important regional differences in XP. And that I should telephone a UK helpdesk.

The internet seemed strangely silent as to differences (other than language scripts).

So does any one know of any?

A:Regional differences in XP

I don't really understand what you are wanting. Can you give an example?
