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.)

When I installed Crysis demo, I knew it wasnt going to run great. But when I clicked on optimized settings, it put everything in medium quality. It was slooow. Then I got Medieval War II and clicked on optimized settings and it set everything to high which makes the game very laggy. It seems like no matter what the game is, whenever the game optimizes itself, it always thinks that my computer can do better than it actually does.

My question is this. Is there something I have to change in the setting of my computer or do all games do that? Maybe graphics card settings? I know my computer is not a gamer rig but it can barely play RTS games even though I have recommended system requirements for all of them.

My Specs:

Pentium D 3.4 Ghz
2 GB Ram
250 GB HDD
ATI Radeon 2400 Pro PCIe with 256GB

A:Optimized settings

Dang, if that system can't play games then very few can. You have the hardware, have you checked for updated drivers for the video card? That could help, but I can't imagine it would fix that extreme of a problem.
Have you checked to see if anything else was using the CPU while you are trying to play the game? Are you playing local or over the network? Sorry .... more questions that answers.

I'm a very avid gamer and I've been trying how to configure my system solely for gaming and I was looking for some help with that such as which services I can stop/disable (so they don't run on startup) and etc. I'm not sure exactly what information I'll need to provide for someone to help me with this so yeah.

A:Optimized for gaming

It all depends on whether the gaming includes internet usage or not?

Plus you can create a batch file to stop the services before running the game and another one to start the services when you have finished with the game...this works out pretty well.

Hi,
This is not for Gaming but for Music creation but the same theme applies.

Is there any way to either set up Windows (7 in my case) so that I can instantly have the current drive, running only limited applications?
If I swap USER accounts I will lose administrative and personalised settings.
At the moment I open task manager and manually end processes each time I need to free up resources which is a pain.
If I could set up a preconfigured environment to run at the click of a mouse that would be great!!
Even better would be if, when I launch my Music Workstation it automatically launches this environment.

Any ideas?

Mike

A:Optimized 'template' ?

You can go to Start > Run > Type "Services.msc" and right-click properties on the services you want to halt. Under "Startup Type" change it from Automatic to Manual.
What this will do is not load that service until it is needed.
For example if you set Print Spooler to Manual the only time that service will start is when you open up a Word document and go to print. However once the service has started you'll need to stop it again.

There are programs like Tuneup Utilities which you can select services to be disabled and tuneup will automatically enable the service when needed and then disable it again.
This program is the safe option as it wont allow you to stop critical system services.
Tuneup also has the feature to add programs to the startup list on a Delayed Start to that your system has time to load first, then loads your music program.

What does "Load Optimized Defaults" do in BIOS? I am curious, I have a problem and this might be one of my options.

Thanks

A:Load Optimized Defaults

It loads the default settings...which are supposed to provide the best chance of booting.But...if the system was set up via a network install, then it may make the boot order one that produces an error...as the system tries to boot from a network connection, rather than the hard drive or optical drive.I would suggest to always check what the boot options are...after using/loading the optimized defaults. If the first option is not the hard drive, then I would change it (assuming that I have already installed Windows on a hard drive).More InfoLouis

If HP does not provide XP drivers (have you looked?) for that machine the probability that you can find adequate ones somewhere is low. Rather than buying XP and going through all the hassles of (maybe) finding drivers you would be better off upgrading the machine if it is underpowered and stick with Windows 7. What Windows 7 version do you have? How much memory?

How can I revert back to IE8 that is NOT optimized for msn and bing? I don't use either, I use google. Also, this IE8 is giving my weird issues, for example: when trying to type a post on a forum or on facebook it limits the number of characters I can type in the text field. Once I reach a certain number of lines it just won't display beyond it and I cannot type anymore. I know it's this computer (if not the version of IE8 on this computer) because I don't have that problem on my laptop.

I'd like to try installing the previous un-optimized version of IE8, unless anyone has any other suggestions?

Recentlly uploaded AOL 9.0 SE on Vista, and everything seemed to go fine, but whenever I sign off, I keep getting a message saying do not turn off machine its installing updates. Okay, i've seen this message when I was using XP periodocally, but the process went through quickly and no problems. But with Vista, it seems to be everytime I sign off I'm getting this updating message, and it literally takes about an hour for the update to go through. I've uninstalled, and re-installed the software, but when I sign off its the same problem all over again. Being a long time AOL customer this is very strange, so my question is should I be using a higher Version of AOL with Vista?
Thanks in Advance..
 

A:Problems with AOL 9.0 SE Optimized on Vista

The problem you are having may not be an actual problem or even with your AOHELL software. I have to say this or else I could not go on, GET RID OF AOHELL PLEASE.

Ok now we can move on

Log into your computer as administrator and run windows updates. On Vista it can be found under START > All Programs > Windows Update. Do not worry how long it will take as this is relative to each computer and what it needs. Just install the important/crital updates leaving the optional ones alone for now. Wait until Windows downloads and installs all of them and you may have to restart your computer once or twice.

BTW: Uninstall that software completely from your system. Then create a restore point if you dare to install it again Here are a couple of places for reference.

Hi,
I have been using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit for an year now, and recently noticed that the "Currently Allocated" virtual memoy is 3063 Mb, while the "Recommended" VM is 4594 Mb. I have 3 Gb physical memory installed. Even after I check the "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" option, the VM remains 3063 Mb. What should be the optimal VM setting in Win'7 for me to derive the best performance from my PC ? Please advise.

A:Virtual Memory - optimized settings

Quote:
How Big Should I Make the Paging File?

Perhaps one of the most commonly asked questions related to virtual memory is, how big should I make the paging file? There’s no end of ridiculous advice out on the web and in the newsstand magazines that cover Windows, and even Microsoft has published misleading recommendations. Almost all the suggestions are based on multiplying RAM size by some factor, with common values being 1.2, 1.5 and 2. Now that you understand the role that the paging file plays in defining a system’s commit limit and how processes contribute to the commit charge, you’re well positioned to see how useless such formulas truly are.

Since the commit limit sets an upper bound on how much private and pagefile-backed virtual memory can be allocated concurrently by running processes, the only way to reasonably size the paging file is to know the maximum total commit charge for the programs you like to have running at the same time. If the commit limit is smaller than that number, your programs won’t be able to allocate the virtual memory they want and will fail to run properly.

So how do you know how much commit charge your workloads require? You might have noticed in the screenshots that Windows tracks that number and Process Explorer shows it: Peak Commit Charge. To optimally size your paging file you should start all the applications you run at the same time, load typical data sets, and then note the commit charge peak (or... Read more

I have added in startup parameters in Dayz Commander to help the game perform better, I have tweaked my settings and tried several things to boost FPS.
Is there anyone else that falls victim to this as well? Can someone give me some suggestions on how to increase my performance? And I am already planning on getting an EVGA Gtx 680 2gb for the standalone, but I don't know how much of a performance boost that will be on the mod as it is.
Also, I run Core Temp and TechPowerUp GPU-Z constantly and I monitor the loads and temps on my second monitor. I notice that I rarely ever get over a forty percent GPU load. When I enter big cities with lots of action going on my GPU load goes straight to zero and that's when I get the worst FPS. My processor hits a little over fifty percent load but it varies between cores. It doesn't seem like I am using the most out of my hardware. This is frustrating.

Perhaps as part of the process of installing the new browser, IE8 was set to the current security or privacy settings and they are too high.

If that doesn't fix it, try lowering the security level or accepting more cookies under privacy. Perhaps the "helpful insrtuctions" will provide a clue as to how to change them.

How can this "template" be changed to always include additional columns, such as "Duration"?

Is it possible to edit the Optimized Folder Templates to add or remove columns?

I am very interested to know if anybody knows the answer to this. Thanks

A:Optimized folder templates - editing

Yes, Antonimo, it is easy to add new columns or remove the ones that are already there. You right-click on any column header, choose "More" and then you have a near infinite list of possible columns. You can move them up or down the list, thus changing which column is shown first and so on.

Once you have achieved the set-up you want, you can go to Folder Options -> View and apply the chosen set-up to all folders of the same type. To choose the type, you click on the folder icon, then Properties -> Customize, but that you should do prior to choosing columns.

Hope that helps.

Hi, Is the error code actually:    RU7Q3F-72683G-MFPV61-61T503 If so, it does confirm a failure of the optimized disk self test which basically means that some areas of the HDD occupied by the operating system are un-readable - this may well mean that the drive is failing and will need to be replaced. If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. If you live in the US, contact HP Here. If you are in another part of the world, start Here. If you are out of warranty and as long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after the upgrade from 8.1, you can try performing a clean installation as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: At the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows will activate automatically once the installation has completed. http://www.howtogeek.com/224342/how-to-clean-install-windows-10/ If you still get the same error after a clean install, then the HDD will need to be replaced. Regards, DP-K

hello forum,

all of a sudden my external HDD (USB) is no longer performance optimized.
usually the properties window of the device has a tab "policies" where you can choose between "quick removal" and "better performance".

after recent system changes (BIOS update, windows updates, formatting the external HDD) i observed very poor performance.
i then noticed the following:
1) the device no longer shows up in systray / notification area for safe removal
2) the properties dialog no longer has the policies tab!

so it looks like the operating system has permanently activated the "quick removal" (write caching disabled) now and won't allow me to change it to "better performance" (write caching enabled, systray icon for safe removal).
but why?
and how to change it back?
some additional notes notes:

a) windows 7 is still showing proper behaviour for other removalbe devices (e.g. USB thumbs driver). it seems to be specific to my external HDD.

b) the external HDD is formatted with NTFS.

c) this is a dual boot system (win7 x64, win xp x86). my external HDD doesn't show those symptoms when booting into windows xp. so i can rule out the bios update as root cause. it seems to be specific to win7.

d) my system has 12 GB of RAM. so the full memory is visible to win7 x64, but only 2.5 GB is visible to winxp x86.

A:external USB HDD no longer performance optimized

any ideas how to proceed?

I have just defragged my laptop and in the Optimize Drives it reads that the drive, Windows RE tools, needs optimization. I thought this drive should not be optimized so why does it say that it Needs optimization (17% fragmented).

A:Should Windows RE tools drive be optimized?

You can optimize if the system lets you.. re tools is a few smaller files and a 300mb .wim file

I purchased my laptop computer about 1 1/2 years ago. A few months ago it was running slow so I upgraded the internet explorer (the version that is optimized for Bing and MSN) and now I keep getting these messages that IE is not responding. I talked to Toshiba and the guy said it might be a virus, but since my 1 year warranty had expired, he could only help me if I agreed to a $35 fee. That was out. So I did a system restore with the disks from Toshiba to restore my computer to the out of the box condition. I am still getting these messages and it is getting frustrating, because whenever I try to read my emails in either gmail or aol, it won't load and when I click on it again I get an error message that IE (not responding) I have also noticed that I get a message about a tab being recovered. I don't have a clue as to what is going on and I really need help. I have anti-virus software and I always update the windows and the Norton 360 software. I am getting somewhat frustrated since I have online businesses that I need to check on (some daily), but it seems as though I am spending half my day trying to get the pages to load and refreshing pages and all that. I am on skype so if this is something that needs a step by step instruction, please send me a note and give me a good time to connect with you on skype. My skype name is in my profile. Thanks for your time....

So after a reformat of my computer, anytime I shut the computer off and cut off electrical power from either the PSU or the UPS my system will not load directly to windows, BIOS will come up saying that it has detected changes and offers to load optimized results or enter BIOS, going into BIOS I am able to see that all my custom settings have been overriden and I have to start all over.

I am thinking this is electrical, but find it strange that it happened after I reformatted and cleaned my computer.

The motherboard is an F2A85X-UP4

A:Motherboard trying to load optimized results occasionally

It likely that your CMOS battery (button cell) on your motherboard needs replacing. It's what maintains the BIOS settings when the PC is off.

I've become uncomfortable with the fact that my antivirus (AVG) has so much access to my information. Perhaps I'm a tin foil hatter but that feels like too much for me to trust any one company with, regardless of their reputation or incentives. I admit I don't know the details of how this stuff works, but even the names of my files and urls I visit I consider private and don't wish to share.
Is there an antivirus that is optimized for privacy? One that is structured to make it difficult for the company to violate your privacy, even if it wanted or was being compelled to?
How else can I stay protected from unwanted software without trusting a company to so much of my info?

A:Privacy optimized anti virus options

This article was helpful: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/antivirus-tracking-youd-surprised-sends/
AhnLab and emsisoft send the least information according to them.
Still a lot of trust involved in, I'd rather there be an actual obstacle between these companies and my privacy.

Hi everyone

I'm experiencing several problems with an optimized win7 installation, though that i've been working on this through months.

I've already solved most of them, but there are some that i can't solve, and the system itself doesn't help (The error messages don't match with the actual causes, the troubleshooter doesn't work, etc)

My main problem now is starting some services, such as Windows Event Log and WLAN autoconfig.

All their dependencies are satisfied, all the associated files and dll's are working and registered, but i still get the same message error:
It doesn't specify what is the path that it can't find, but all paths associated to that service on the registry are working, i've checked it many times.

I can't update the system again, but the system was updated in october, and all updates were ok, there were no problems.

I have a single user, and there are no permission issues anymore, all the system and service profiles are also functional, and all drivers are updated and working.

I've also cleaned the registry and scanned for issues, none have been found.

The only other problem i have now is with the Windows Update system, once CBS Manifest is corrupted, and i just can't find a way to correct it (all given solutions on internet fail with me, nothing can correct this, but all files associated to CBS Manifest are ok, i don't know why it says it's corrupted)

So, do anyone know what can i do?

Here are some other screenshots to help:

A:Several unknown problems in optimized Win7 Professional 32-bit

Im pretty sure I ran into this a few months ago when I tried to use optimized mode. try control panel, system and security, advanced tools,open task manager, click on services tab, click on services tab with the security shield on bottom. use scrollbar to scroll down to WLAN Auto Config, right click, open properties make sure the start up type is set to manual unless you are on a Wire Less Area Network then set to automatic. if your system detects disabled it will give you this error. also check dependencies tab and make sure that the services that WLAN depends on and check to make sure they are set to manual or auto depending on if you are wired (manual) wireless (auto) even though i am not on a wireless network I still got the error code and the program I used also installed a floppy drive in my system where I have no drivers or support for one on my system at all and it put it first in my boot sequence. really slows the boot time. the time I spent fixing the problems with the optimized mode was about a billion times the time optimized mode saved me in my daily use. I have tried several different programs and configurations to get the most out of my system and have found that all of these programs do not work. they all take up space on your hard drive and embed them in your startup menu and suck on the efficiency of your system. I honestly spent over 100 hours researching, downloading programs, reconfiguring my system according to the "experts" and un doing such c... Read more

A:Hard Drive Optimized failed DST Check

Jenna, welcome to the forum. I believe that the hard drive has failed.  Here is the Troubleshooting section for the hard drive.  I suggest following the guide on testing it.  If it shows that it has failed, your only option is to replace it.  Here is a guide to help you replace it.  You should assure that the new hard drive is the same size or larger than the existing one. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

As the title says, windows 8.1 reserved partition will not optimize on SSD. Even if you try to run it manually. Have the latest firmware update for the SSD and Trim in enabled. Has anybody else come across this. Have googled it and there's no resolution that I could find. Image attached.

There's absolutely no reason to optimize that part.
