UPS advice - stepped sine wave or pure?

Q: UPS advice - stepped sine wave or pure?

My APC battery backup UPS needs a new battery, and I'm considering getting a new unit, as mine is approaching 5 years old. I've been reading that standard UPS devices put out a stepped sine wave that can cause issues and possible damage or reduced lifespan with newer Active PFC Power Supplies and LCD monitors. Cyberpower make some that output a "pure sine wave" that is supposed to be better for PFC hardware. Is this really an issue I should be concerned with?

There are 2 UPS units from Cyberpower I'm looking at - 1 has 12 outlets which gives me 2 more than I currently have, which I could definitely use. But it only puts out a standard stepped sine wave. Then there's a similar one with only 10 outlets that outputs a "pure sine wave". Is it worth getting the pure version and losing 2 outlets, or is it not as important as some are saying? I want to do what's best for my equipment of course, especially because I tend to get random power outages for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes fairly often - enough to warrant owning one of these units.

Preferred Solution: UPS advice - stepped sine wave or pure?

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: UPS advice - stepped sine wave or pure?

You really don't need to pay that kind of money. A "pure" sine wave is no better or worse then a stepped sine wave. Not to a properly designed power supply. A properly made power supply filters the incoming power and filters the out going power. In either case the power from an APC is cleaner then what is coming from the Mains directly.

So here is my advice. Forget the sine wave nonsense and get what you can afford that gives you the backup time you need.

I have a Vostro 460 desktop at my office and an OptiPlex 3020 at home.  I want to buy either an APC; Tripp-Lite or CyberPower UPS ~1500 VA; 900 watt unit.  I want to verify if I need to buy a unit with a pure sine wave output to the power supply, or if I can use one with a modified sine wave for either of these computers.  Based on comments from current owners of each, there are some newer computers that need the pure sine wave and they're more expensive.

Has anyone seen an issue in Windows 7 where my CPU usage goes from 0 to 100 then back and forth, like a sine wave? I had no apps running. If I reboot it becomes normal again. Ive tried to replicate what I was doing when I noticed it but nothing was found. This has happened 3 times in the last week. A pic of my Task Mgr illustrates.

hi and welcome to the forums

if you download this program and run it you will be able to see in very concise view all your running processors Process Explorer v15.13 By Mark Russinovich

LINK >>> Process Explorer


Ever wondered which program has a particular file or directory open? Now you can find out. Process Explorer shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded.

The Process Explorer display consists of two sub-windows. The top window always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that Process Explorer is in: if it is in handle mode you'll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened; if Process Explorer is in DLL mode you'll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded. Process Explorer also has a powerful search capability that will quickly show you which processes have particular handles opened or DLLs loaded.

The unique capabilities of Process Explorer make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.

I'm looking at the Resource Monitor, accessed from Task Manager, Win7. I am watching disk activity. I see mostly green sine waves, but one drive also has a blue sine wave. I can't find a key to tell me what the blue wave means.

Blue wave at top of graph, often spiking down to near bottom. Is this i/o errors? Don't seem to see it on other drives.

I am trying to use this device (WD Elements 107C, 1.73tb partition) for my System Image backups, but back up is dog slow. Ran 4 hours over night and only got <100mb of 400+mb. Stopped backup. Ran virus scan and AVG found/fixed multiple occurrences of Tracking Cookie Serving-sys.

I am running SlimCleaner Shred to remove the incomplete backup. It's also running dog slow and seems it will take another 4 hours to complete the wipe. Blue sine wave going nuts.


PS shred done; about 4 hours. Multiple crashes of BSvc Processor
I can't believe it takes 4 hours just to write 100mb of random data to an hdd. I've shredded multi-gb areas in far less time on other hardware.

I just installed a 7260.HMWWB.R in my laptop and getting 866.7Mbps throughput on local network.

As far as the routers I have no experience or opinion on 2nd wave. So new I haven't dealt with it and no idea if one router is better than the other. I doubt I will be needing it for a long time, if ever. I would read as many reviews as possible. I do like RT routers because of the ability to use custom firmware.

PS: Heck I've only caught up with normal dual-band recently, no way I'm ready yet for 2nd wave!

A less drastic measure may have been a better first choice of action, but it is too late now. Trying to stop a factory reset could cause even bigger problems.

Should you ever find yourself in a similar situation, going into advanced options and seeing if there is a choice to repair Windows might be a better first move.

hello everyone I have been working on a program that will display the X and Y coordinates for drilling holes around a circle for my milling machine.
I have the program working over 320degrees of the circle but when I calc the Cos and Sin of an angle that is within + or - 5 degrees of 90,180,270 or 360 degrees the result of either the X or Y answer is not correct. It is way off base to something like -7.567.

In the program I change the angle given to degrees and do the Cos, Sin of the product.

As I said this works perfectly on the other 320 degrees of the circle.

Go to kaspersky.com.They have a comparison chart there that will answer your question.

In the column for Personal & Family Security click on Kaspersky Pure Total Security. You will see a chart with an overview of each of the two softwares in question.

I have KIS and am very satisfied with it. Previously I used Norton which has improved dramatically in recent years and its customer service is the best. After each contact with Norton's customer service they send you a questionnaire asking you to rate the service provided.

I switched to KIS only because its just as effective, IMO, and its much cheaper.

What does "pure server" mean in some games I've seen and played?

I'm guessing it's forcing some of the software into your system that'll make the game run more smoothly.

A:Pure server?

A pure server dramatically reduces cheating in games. Its used especially in tournaments.
It checks your game folder and gives the server a list of the files in it. If it has a file that the server does not recognize as part of the game, it will not allow that file to execute. If it recognizes it as a cheat, you can't join the server. It also checks the filesize, and sometimes the checksum, of game files that never need to be edited unless you are cheating.

Hello TSG! It's been a long time since I found another problem which I can not fix by me self. But now, I have found one that is driving me mad! So I bought the game PURE from gamestop, and installed it on my windows 7 machine. My computer passes beyond the Recommended requirements, so there shouldn't be any problem with that. Anyway, it first took quite a while to install, I'd say about 5-7 minutes installing, and once it was done, I couldn't wait to play because I LOVED the demo. So I boot the game up and it takes like 20-30 secs to load the first loading, and then I get the intro video of the game, then another loading screen with the title, "PURE", written on it. This one takes something about less than 1 minute to load and then it asks me for creating a new sav and all, and once I'm done with that, the game stands on black screen for 1-2 secs then I get the program not responding error. I have downloaded the latest drivers for my graphic card, and have tried the compatibility settings, but none of these seem to work. I also installed the game on my Windows XP partition, but I got the same error. Then after all that, I took the game back to Gamestop and exchanged it for another copy because I thought it was the CD's fault. But no, even after installing it with the new copy, my game keeps crashing after it passes the save screen. I have no idea what could be causing this problem, as my computer is really fast and al my drivers are u... Read more

Hi Craig, I very much doubt if a Windows 8.1 driver is available. Review this post. It seems that this particular tuner was going obsolete.  If you google the tuner, you should find a Windows 7 driver here. That might not even solve your problem.  I had this same tuner card in a VISTA PC and I did manage to get it working with Windows 7. If you search the forum, you will find that some were plagued with problems using the VIxs tuners. The model might be different but the issues could be similar.

Hi, although I tried various antiviruses and I'm considering myself as a fan of this stuff, lately I'm somehow bored and I stay with Windows 10 and its default antivirus, firewall...

Thinking about change for a few weeks already but did not decided yet. Hope I get some inspiration here ;-)

A:Pure Windows 10 problem

Why SmartScreen disabled? It is absolutely recommended to enable it to avoid infections. Windows Defender is improved with the latest version, but I recommend to add also ZAM Free and MalwareBytes.

Add HTTPS Everywhere, add at least CCleaner Free for System Utilities.

Add Macrium Reflect Free or AOMEI Backupper.

I am having trouble with my Internet security, Kaspersky Pure. It seems to have picked up some sort of virus and I tried to use Modify, Repair or Remove to fix it but then it kept freezing and no matter how long I waited it would not move. So then I tried to uninstall and reinstall Kaspersky but the uninstall didn't work properly and now when I try to go into Modify, Repair or Remove it goes straight to installing Kaspersky. This would be fine but it freezes with about an eighth to go.
I have Windows Vista and a Toshiba computer. (not sure if that helps)
What can I do to get Kaspersky up and working again? Thanks

A:Kaspersky Pure Freezing

Most Anti Virus, other than Microsoft Security Essentials gives members problems from time to time. I would suggest that you make a system restore point, uninstall and then install Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebyte for a once a week scan. These are free so you will lose nothing. I use Security Essentials and have never had a problem.

I have had Pure Network Magic for many years since they began. We all know that Cisco has sort-of messed up a very good thing. The last version that Pure had put out for Network Magic was 4.9.8225.0-Pure0, on Platform Version 10.2.8216.0 , I have my own Network License Key.

I lost the the "setup.exe' file for THAT version (4.9.8225.0-Pure0) in a crash. I do not want to buy or update to Cisco, because this version works just fine for what I do (don't fix it if it ain't broke). Is it possible to get that file from the Pure guys, or from someone on the net? After the 'crash' I revived an older laptop, but it has an older version of Network Magic on it ... so I wanted to make it the same as the rest in my little network.

This toolkit is a 700MB ISO image of some of the best applications you can get for repair and optimization of Windows. It's basically like an emergency disc because it has all the big spyware removal tools and has anti-virus and some important Windows updates.

You will, however, need a BitTorrent client to download this. I particularly like Azureus ( *** link removed *** ) Change XX to TT

Here's the toolkit:*** moderator edit, Link removed ***

Mod Edit: I've removed your advertising link to your forum. Also, some of the stuff that you have included on your CD is being illegally redistributed, specifically XP SP2. Microsoft does not authorize redistribution of their patches in this fashion. I suspect other stuff on the CD might fall into the same category. Finally, we don't support P2P applications here.

My subscription to KIS is about to end. I have seen Kaspersky Pure on sale and am considering buying it.

Has anyone here ever used Kaspersky Pure?

If so what are your impressions of it?

Thank you for responding.

A:Does anyone have experience with Kaspersky Pure?

My experience with Kaspersky Pure is good. But I have long since shifted to free software which if not better is just as good. So why should I cough up hard earned money?

I suggest that you do the same. Try out MSE or in case you would prefer separate applets then Avast Free A-V, Comodo Free Firewall and Malwarebytes Anti-malware on your computer.

Best of luck.

I have a nasty virus/spyware thats keeping my pc from connecting to the internet, using any advanced tools, and  utilizing system restore.  I pretty much have an idea why it happened (PSP sharing) and I'm just pissed because it wasn't done by me personally.  I tried to turn the proxy off in my web browsers, restore my computer to a previous point in time, hell I even ran multiple scans with malwarebytes.  It found  something and I followed the instructions to quarantine/delete, but when I reboot afterwards it's still the same stuff.  Also I even tried to make a new admin account( which I was surprisingly able to ) since everytime I tried to log on the original the screen would go to the desktop, flash/crash, and hard reset itself.  That happened every single time I logged on to the old admin profile.  I;m currently using someone else's mac to write this since my computer is not complying.  It doesn't recognize my fios router or wifi and every other device that tries to hookup to our wifi has a problem also.  This computer is hooked into the wireless router by ethernet since its our main computer.  I feel so frustrated and I just want to get this thing off and ban my stupid cousin for this .  Please Please help someone , ANYONE.  it would be greatly appreciated.  Also to note it basically disabled my antivirus and malwarebyes from updating and before the internet cut off I kept hearing ads but seeing nothing...

I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but this forum is the closest I could find to what my question is.

I have got a second internal harddrive to use as a pure backup drive for stuff like pictures, vids, music etc. (no system stuff) and when it asks me to initialize the drive it asks for either MBR or GPT.

To the best of what I have been able too find out so far, the main advantages of GPT are to do with partition size, and drives over 2TB. However since the drive is only 1TB that doesn't seem useful.

However it seems that MBR is more susceptible to boot corruption because the partition and boot data is only stored in one place, whereas GPT has redundant copies. The main issue with GPT seems to be compatibility.

I am really baffled, on the one hand I have seen lots of people say just to use MBT because it is tried and tested and GPT is only useful for drives over 2TB. But then on the other hand since this is a backup drive and I want that data to be safe, does GPT provide any advantage in terms of the redundant partition data, even though it will never be used as a boot drive?

Also I presume that the (non system) files and folders that will go in the backup would be able to be restored from a MBR drive to GPT drive (if upgrading to a new version of Windows in the future) and vice versa? I read that an MBR backup couldnt be restored to a GPT drive, but I am assuming that is an entire system image with the operating system and not just select files and fold... Read more

Whenever I try to run the Kaspersky Pure anti-virus, nothing happens. I tried to uninstall it so I can reinstall it. But uninstalling the program is not possible, too. The window is just there but the green bar isn't moving for hours. So I have no choice but to forcibly close the uninstall window. Help please. How can I make this anti-virus work again? Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hello. I have been having some late problems with the PC Game called Pure. Everytime when I try to start to play ingame, it freezes and I have to exit it. I am running on a ATI Radeon HD 4650 graphics card. I think that my graphics card isn't the problem here...
Can someone try to figure this out , because I can't.

Please and Thank you
This is the game...

A:PC Pure Game Freeze

I dont own that game so dont know it may be a problem with the game itself but you can try this:

1- Make sure you download and install the latest CCC from here: ATI Graphics
2- Install these updates:

DirectX (You need this whether you running DirectX 9, 10 or 10.1)
C ++ for Vista 32 bit
C ++ for Vista 64 bit

Defrag your PC then reboot and try running the game again.

Is it possible to use MalwaBytes Pro with Kaspersky PURE 3.0? I ask this because both programs have real time protection, and some people say that it may cause conflicts. That makes sense, but would it be a problem when using MB and KS PURE 3.0, since they work on 'different' areas?

Thank you!

A:Can I use MalwareBytes Pro with Kaspersky PURE 3.0?

You can but I would use MBAM as an on demand scanner with real time protection turned off.I have a pro license(which I was given free) so thats how I use it.However if you are contemplating buying the pro version I would say use the free version as an on demand scanner with Pure

Hello all
Ihave a Canopus Pure 3D II Graphics card and have just upgraded to windows XP but need the new driver.
Does anyond know where I can get this from and I have tried Canopus.
Thanks Marian

A:Canopus Pure 3D Drivers for XP

Well, Canopus stopped selling consumer video cards in the US a while back, and 3dfx went under before XP was released.

This page might help:

My advice would be to get a new video card, but if that page doesn't work, I have another that might... if it ever loads.
