Q: Photo Editors (Moved from Windows 10 forum)

Hi everybody :
I'm thinking about switching to Windows 10. One question I have is.......what photo editor is compatible ? Currently....using Windows 7.....I'm using PhotoShop Elements 12 / 32-bit. But, it seems with Windows 10, the only version of PhotoShop Elements is "PhotoShop Elements 2020", which comes in 64-bit version. But, my System is 32-bit system. Advice ?

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.)

Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 10 can run 32-bit software.

The 32-bit version of Windows would -not- be able to run 64-bit software.

I'm looking for a free photo editor I can download. I've used Picasa in the past but it seems to be a bit over encompassing. It picks out every face within every photo ever taken. I found face pictures of strangers only to find out they were way in the background of the pictures I have taken. I'm looking for something basic, user friendly and does a nice job in correcting sharpness, brightness/contrast, crops, etc., all the basics.

Here's some Image Editor suggestions.

Most Image Viewers can perform the simple tasks you mentioned.

I use Irfanview as my default Image Viewer, then when I need more editing power, I switch to Photoshop
The freeware Gimp would be the Freeware Editor to closest to the power of Photoshop.
There's no sense in using a complicated and possibly slow Image editor to perform basic editing tasks

...and error 6008

I was in the middle of an online gaming session; my system just shut off. Hard stop. No warning.
It rebooted itself and all was fine, in that I could hop into my session and resume. Obviously I lost a great deal of advantage, but operationally everything worked as it should.

I have been in another room and was sure I heard certain sounds that only occur when my system starts up ( my Logitech wheel doing self test for example). It doesn't happen often. But it has happened. And nothing seems amiss.

I am just starting to dig into this to figure our what might be happening, and this was step #2... posting here.

Ill upload sysdump tmo . and will be in a position to answer questions in hope to resolve this quickly.

Hi everybody :
I'm going through my options of adding a second hard drive. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard. Windows 7 Professional-32 bit. My "main" drive is a WD5003ABYX 500Gb Western Digital HD.
I'm thinking about the option of an SSD. I noticed, on my MB, there is a connector for a SSD drive. It's labeled "mSATA". I did a little research on this. Is it still possible to buy an mSATA drive ? I did some checking, and some of the prices on "regular" SSDs aren't that bad....some around $89. I'd post a pic of this connector, but between the size of the photo file, and being able to attach photos in this forum (I don't think it's possible). I know this much, with a "regular" SSD, I'd probably have to get an adapter, so I could use one of the bays in my tower. Even, if it's NOT possible to be able to find an mSATA, it's not the end of the world.

I'm in Engineering and have created an excel spreadsheet that shows information of someone that will be checking out an AutoCAD/Manual Drawing. There are two columns P6-"Date CHECKED-OUT" and Q6-"Drawing Due Date"; the P6 column I tried creating a formula that shows today's date [=IF(B6<>"",TODAY(),""]. However this formula isn't doing what I'd like. If information was saved for yesterday I'd like that date to stay the same rather than update each day. The formula is doing it's function properly, but I need to find a formula that will keep the P6 column on the specific date it was entered and not change the next day. The Q6 column is doing it's function and just providing a date 30 days from P6; that one was pretty simple. But I'm coming across issues with P6 and would love some assistance as the end users are using the copy & paste function to enter data and the P6 column is automatically entered with a date. That date should stay the same from when the end user used the copy & paste function.

Hello

I'm trying to create a VPN, but I'm having a lot of trouble.
I'll tell you what I've done so far.

First, I went to Network Connections, File, Incoming New Connection, Selected my account, "Through Internet", and Allow Access.

Then I went to my reuter's (Thomson TG784n) webpage, Games and Application Sharing, Assign and assigned the PTPP server to my PC (I used the IPv4 IP), ticked the log box and clicked Add.

Then I went back to my computer, to Network and Sharing Center and Configure New Connection or Network (or something like that, my PC is not in English). Then I selected Connect to local workplace, then Through Internet or VPN or something like that (it's the 1st option), then I put my PC's IPv4, the same one I assigned the PPTP server to.
Then I went to the connections and connected to the VPN using my account Username and Password.

Then the problems started.
First, after connecting, the Ethernet connection would become "Limited" and the connection would fail. After some investigation, I went to the VPN's properties, IPv4, Advanced and unchecked "Use preset gateway on remote connection'' and did the same for IPv6. Then I could connect to the VPN. I'm not sure if it worked or not, but my Internet became slower.

I'm not sure if it worked because when I tried to connect my android phone to the VPN, it didn't. On my phone, I went to "Add new VPN", then I put a r... Read more

I was running backup4all but it was idle when I left my pc for an hour or so. When I came back the following was on my screen
"vscsrv2008x64.exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program & notify you if a solution is available."
I did a search for it on google & it seems to be related to backup programs but i cant determine if it is serious.
Any help appreciated.
 

A:What is vscsrv2008x64.exe (moved from Windows 8 forum)

The file is related to the back up program you mentioned. The program is not free. Did you purchase it or download the free trial? If the latter then it's possible the trial has expired and you have to decide if you want to purchase it or uninstall it.

If you purchased it, perhaps some security software is interfering.

Have you ever run it successfully?

What security software are you running?

If so and they aren't there are you sure you're logged in as the correct user who added those sites to your favorites?

Lastly, look in this location:

A:Help with Word (Moved from Windows 10 forum)

Hi, and welcome to TSG.

Am I safe to assume that you are using section breaks to switch between page orientations and also putting page numbers in a header and/or footer? If so, you need to change the formatting of the page numbers in the sections to continue from the previous section, rather than start over. The exact method of doing so will depend upon the exact version of MS-Word you are using. It might involve right-clicking on the page number and selecting the correct format option.

It is a temp file cleaner. You can use it OR use something like Ccleaner [which is what I use]
As for how often to run, that depends on how much you use the system AND how much time you spend online. Once a week should be fine however if you are online a LOT, run it more often.
