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 am using a Lenova Yoga 920 laptop. These problems go away after rebooting the computer, but then re-emerge after using the computer for a while, and persist until I reboot again. It is getting very irritating, and interfering with my work.  - A mysterious floating white circle appeared on my desktop background. I cannot click on or interact with it, and changing the desktop background does not remove the circle. Then, a second circle appeared. Now, there is also a floating white rectangle. The rectangle poses the biggest issue, because it remains on TOP of whatever other windows I have open, constantly obstructing part of my screen unless I reboot the computer. The circles remain on the desktop background. I have attached a picture of these weird white artifacts on my display. Things I have already tried:- Installing all available Windows patches and updates- Updating graphics driver- Checking/unchecking auto-brightness settings

Hi, I have Windows 7 RC build 7100 (x64) installed on an Intel Quad 2 Core Q8200 with 4GB RAM , Nvidia 9400 GT 1GB video card and 160GB HDD. I had to install BitDefender Antivirus 2009 in compatibility mode and it did, however when I try to install weekly.exe manual updates it can`t access BitDefender`s registry keys. I tried extracting from the .exe the .msi file and typed in cmd: "msiexec /i weekly.msi /l* log.txt", the log.txt file shows the registry keys the .msi are trying to access, however they exist and, for testing, if I try to change its values with regedit there appears a message like this: "Windows Security: Can`t change values". What can I do?

Bitdefender is a great program, but with still some cons with it. That's why people started releasing AV with Bitdefender's native engine but with different UI. Most come with dual-engines, one being the company's and one being Bitdefender's. The most popular ones are: F-Secure, Emsisoft, and Bullguard. You might ask, "Hey, but why won't people switch to these instead of using Bitdefender, since they come with Bitdefender's essential protection added with their own security options?" A big con of these alternatives are that they are usually outdated, because Bitdefender updates its own products first, then push it out into the other vendors.
So...
Pros of Bitdefender:
-More staff and faster updates
-Always up-to-date
Pros of Other Bitdefender-Based Products:
-Generally more features
-Generally slimmer (less bloated)
 

A:Bitdefender vs Products Using Bitdefender Engine Explained

BitDefender develops all of its real-time protection features, they only lease their scanning engine to other vendors which is usually an older version but has the latest signature updates. F-Secure, Emsisoft, Qihu 360, Bullguard and others develop their own real-time protection features and implement the scanning engine.

The most bloated part of BitDefender's own product is its real-time protection features that is why other products that using its engines have less bloat and bugs. Just because they use an older scanning engine doesn't mean that the detection is inferior since the signature updates are the same. Newer engines are also much heavier, older engines are more stable.

BitDefender also is known for poor custom support and resolved bugs another benefit for using another product with the BitDefender engine.

Enjoy!!

Microsoft's Windows Server team released a preview of the next Windows Server product, Windows Server 2019, yesterday to the public.

Windows Server 2019 Preview is available for any participant of the Windows Insider program but the post on Microsoft's Windows Server website is unfortunately a bit vague when it comes to actual downloads of the preview version of Windows Server.

The very first thing you need to do is register an organization account or a personal account; Registering in this case means that you join the Windows Insider Program with the account so that you may download and use Insider Builds.

Once you have done that head over to the Windows Insider Preview Server download page and select "Windows Server vNext LTSC PReview" under available downloads. You can download localized versions of the Server 2019 Preview ISO and have 24 hours to download the 4.2 Gigabyte ISO image from Microsoft.

Microsoft plans to release the final version of Windows Server 2019 in the second half of the calendar year 2018. The company plans to release System Center 2019 as well which will support Windows Server 2019.Click to expand...

StrongVPN review :
Originally from California, USA, StrongVPN was founded in 2005. Since its inception, it has become more famous and has become one of the most well-known providers today thanks to its continuous improvements and the enrichment of its features. Like most of US-based VPNs, StrongVPN has faced some privacy concerns from its users due to the severity of the US data retention laws, but its attitude to this issue is very clearly outlined in its privacy policy. The policy in question clearly states that StrongVPN does not store the browsing histories of its users. Otherwise, StrongVPN takes serious measures to protect the online privacy and security of its users. StrongVPN uses AES SHA encryption ranging from 256 bits to 2048 bits compatible with several protocols including OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP and IKEv2. Other features include a fuse, a ?Best Available Location? feature and many others. StrongVPN offers these features on so many platforms that it took us some time to count them.

StrongVPN offers all the above features and more at a very reasonable price compared to its competitors and, although there is no free trial period, users are entitled to a 30-day money-back guarantee during which they can try the entire service and get a refund if they are not satisfied without having to answer any questions.

The only flaw is that when you first establish the connection and create your account, the process can be a little more complicated than for other provide... Read more

Lenovo announced the X1 Yoga 4th gen at CES this January, so let's start a thread discussing the brand new version!  ThinkPad X1 YOGA The biggest change is that it no longer has a carbon fiber body with matte black coating. Instead Lenovo changed the X1 Yoga to use milled aluminum with a dark gray finish. It still looks great though. Available June 2019, starting price $1930.  Comparison with the 2018 3rd gen model: Improved- smaller side bezels, 17% smaller footprint- aluminum casing, which should eliminate issues related to paint flaking issues- the fan appears to have its main vent on the side, better for lap use- Lenovo now supports a Windows Hello IR camera AND the thinkshutter- there's a new combo docking port that has an embedded TB3 port- reported to have better speakers (Dolby ATMOS)- now up to 2TB SSD installed Unchanged- the screen aspect ratio is still 16:9 with large lower bezel- no OLED option- no discrete graphics option - weight still ~3 lbs (reports range from 2.98-3.09lbs)- still no volume rocker (needed in tablet use)- it still can't be opened one-handed (see hands-on video at 0m50s) Worse (personal opinion)- the keys no longer retract (and lock?) in tablet mode- seemingly no SD or microSD card reader Preliminary posted specs:

I just acquired a new X1 Yoga (i7, 16GB, HDR 4k Display, 1TB) and wanted to share my experience. The screen is great but far from balanced. Coming from Dell XPS 15 4k display, and viewing side by side, it's clear the Yoga is far from white. Not enough to be unusable, but very much red tinted when you're used to a good wihte. The picture attached does not do it justice but they are set to very similar brightness levels and the best color calibration I can get from both. Lenovo vantage is installed and I have tried to play with calibration settings and profiles but have yet to find one that can correct what seems to be a consequence of the display pixel profile.  Has anyone else dealt with this yet? I'm borderline returning as defective for another system since I use this for photography. I also can notice the tint when most might not. I'd love to keep the system, it's a great form factor. I feel like it's working as designed but not able to reproduce the right color temperature for white.  Thanks for any suggestions.

The recent Windows Update on Jan 8, 2019 breaks our POS Program Using MS Jet 4.0 affecting hundreds of our customers with thousands of computers. It has affected everyone running
XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10 as well as Server.



This update contains a "security update for MS Jet 4.0" but doesn't seem to replace the MSJET40.DLL. Users of our application get "Unrecognized Database Format" errors when accessing files through our program. Rewriting the entire
application to use MS Ace or something else then deploying to thousands of computers is not a viable solution.

Removing the Security Update for Microsoft Windows or the Monthly Rollup always repairs the issue. The problem is that Windows 10 users are unable to turn off updates and others who forget to are right back where they started when the update returns.

In July, this "bug" appeared in one of our "Windows 10 Insider Previews: for Windows version 1803. It was promptly fixed in the very next Windows Insider Preview Build and I currently have Insider Build 1809 without that latest patch
and everything works as it should. That said, I did have a customer with 1809 who had this issue. I currently have Build 18262.rs_prerelease 181012-1414 from the slow ring.

Hello.
I would like to know if i need a security update or patch to solve CVE-2019-0708 on Windows Embedded Compact V7.0, like KB4499175 for Windows 7 ultimate SP1, or KB4500331 for Windows XP.
Maybe i dont need to install anything because this version os Windows is not vulnerable to that problem, but im not sure.
Thanks in advance.
Yours, Fernando,

hi guys

wasnt really sure where this should go...but since im trying it on a windows 7 machine i thought i would post it here.

i need to convert a windows 98 installation into a vm...the hardware on the 98 is failing and i dont want to lose an application that will cost thousands to replace.

I just wondered what the chances are of converting the 98 to a vm so i can run it on a newer pc
i googled but information looked old and wondered what the chances are of getting something installed on the 98 to to the conversion.

can you convert a hard drive to a vm? as in the system doesnt need to be running? or is there a soft i can use?
any help greatly appreciated
