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.)

Can you tell us which web site and where you find that option? Kinda hard to figure things out without knowing the specifics.

Hopefully there's an answer out there. I'm a long time Firefox user currently using Version 14.0.1 on a PC with W7 64bit.
Since taking the upgrade to version 14, I no longer have the option to pin the shortcut to the task bar of start menu but have to be content with the shortcut on the desktop. When right clicking on the shortcut, I no longer see the traditional option of where to pin the shortcut. I've gone back as far as Version 10.0 but the option is no longer there either.

Any ideas on what's happened or how to solve this mystery?

I tryed to install windows xp proffesional and then changed my mind when it said there is some problem...I have xp home edition..
After that I got two options to chose at the reboot..xp professional setup or xp home..I then deleted the last line at the startup boot options in boot editor - this line was for the xp proffesional setup...

But now the problem is that I still have two options
first is xp home edition and the second is windows default, so I still have the same problem.,
I must choose at every startup xp home manualy, because windows default is not ok..
What can I do so xp home will start normaly like before?
Thank you for your time and help.

I have a checkbox that when checked it makes an Option Group visible. When the Option Group opens (I've tried both check boxes and Option Buttons) but they both have NO checked off when the Option Group opens. I have tried playing with the default for the Option Group Frame. I have tried setting it up to reset to null when the Option Group opens.

From everything that i am reading there is only a yes or no option, there is no null option. How do I make neither button or checkmark checked? I want both boxes or circles left blank until chosen.

my computer did not show the hidden folder i have clean all the virus from my computer but still i am unable to show the hidden file and folder pls help me

A:folder option problem

First (to rule things out), make sure you have "display the contents of system folders" and "show hidden files and folders" checked, and "hide protected operating system files" UNchecked.

Someone had a malware that made hidden and superhidden file settings unavailable a
few months back. I ended up digging out the registry keys and writing a registry script for him.
If you're still experiencing the problem, try the registry script in the other thread.

As a workaround, you can use one of the default power plans and adjust it's settings to what you need and use it instead. Hopefully that will work better for you.

Now bear with me, the computer I wish to upgrade is an E-Machines, yes I know all the horror stories, but this is one of my mid-range machines, used for low-end gaming and MS Office software. I won't be doing anything strenuous with it but I feel the RAM is a little lack-luster in performance some times.

I'd just like to know what RAM I should go with. I'm wanting to toss atleast a 1 Gig. stick in. Unlike my Dell, this E-Machines should I be alright with cheap-o RAM right? Or must I get the high-end/mid-range modules either way?

Also, if someone could clarify what ECC and Registered means, and if I should go with those options I would be very greatful.

Here's the Machine:
E-Machines T2862
2.66 GHz Intel Celeron D 333 / 533 FSB
256 Meg. RAM (Expandable to 2 Gig.)

I would like to up my ram from 2gb to 4gb. I have OCZ gold twin (2x1gb) pc6400 800mhz at speed 4-5-5-15. The company I purchased the machine from over-clocked the ram and the cpu so I phoned up their tech support and was told if I put the same again in the spare 2 slots I may have to go into the bios. I asked a few more questions but as I had found before the tech support from the company was a joke. I only have a 32bit os so I know I wont get the full 4gb but an increase would still be good as I am going to be using the comp a lot more soon. So should I A) buy the same ram as above costing £30 and then if necessary ask for some more help when it comes to changing bios. B) Buy a 2x2gb twin sticks e.g. seen corsair xms2 4-4-4-12 or similar for about £70-£80 take other sticks out maybe get £15-£20 back then would hopefully not have to use bios C) Keep to 2gb total but buy better quicker ram seen some with quick clock speeds but also expensive same price roughly as option B however I don't believe I would gain as much so this is ideally the least preferred option. I'm really not sure how to proceed so any expert opinions would be appreciated.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on my HP 6910p Laptop. The power plan options were working absolutely fine, but suddenly it has started to act weird. When I used to select a power option For instance , when I click High Performance: The brightness used to be full (As I Configured this plan to have max screen brightness) and when I used to switch to Power Save: The brightness used to be lowest (As I configured this plan to have lowest screen brightness)
However, now, when I switch between the plans, nothing happens. For instance, if I click high performance, the brightness remains the same as clicking the power save plan. Also, If I choose High Performance power plan and lower its brightness, and then click on power save the brightness remains same as the high performance. So, Apparently, there is no change.
Can anyone suggest me what to do?

Ok guys I've got a tricky one for you. I've been to alot of other forums with this one and I am out of ideas so I am really hoping someone here is smarter then me which isnt very hard by my experience =)
I am a network admin for a smaller company. One of our sales guys recently started having the infamous "Windows is blocking access to this file for your protection" error when he tries to extract files from a .zip that is sent automatically from one of our sister companies. It says you can go to properties and click "unblock" which of course I did and which of course makes absolutely no difference. When he double clicks the zip it appears empty. When he clicks "extract all files" it gives the old Blocking this file error mentioned previously. I searched around google and read a couple suggested fixs and nothing has worked. I tried a Registry entry that marks certain files as low risk. I made sure he is a local admin of his machine. I logged in as domain admin and tried it myself...same result. I am kind of at a loss here and he really needs to be able to view and extract zip files. Could it be an update he got and installed? As of right now we dont yet have SMS or WSUS so users pretty much get to pick their own updates (I know its dumb but I just started.). It cant really be a group policy because everyone operates under the same policy and it works fine for them. He is running Windows Xp Pro SP2. Any advice someone smarter then me co... Read more

Hello everyone. I have been having an ongoing problem with my computer and I have asked for advice many times, and haven't really gotten any answers. Basically the problem is simple. When I click on a link in firefox, firefox opens it in a new window. This isn't right, it should open in the same tab. This also happens just by pressing the back button. This problem also effects the desktop. When I will select a single program, a cluster of programs around it get selected as well. Today this problem happened again, but I noticed something different about it. When I went to restart my computer (it generally works normally after that) I saw that my usual options of "Standby" "Turn Off" and "Restart" were replaced with "Hibernate" "Turn Off" and "Restart." I'm not sure what it means or if the problem is serious, but it is quite frustrating so if anyone can help shed some light on the issue, please do!

Oh and I was told before that my problem could be that my control key is stuck, but I have cleaned the key and it has been unstuck.

Hello ragavendrang.

I would suggest that after you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media you use Step One of this tutorial at the link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive, running this then using the outline in Step Two #2 to create and format a single 100GB partition using diskpart will get you a clean all and a chkdsk /r for the best possible space to install Windows to.


After you have made backups of everything you care to save and you want to do a real wipe "clean all" to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have a look at this tutorial at the link below, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old Windows drivers, giving you the best possible space to install Windows 7 to; it goes hand-in-hand with a clean install.

I am working on rearranging my network and need some help in figuring out what my best setup option is and how to go about it. Here is the situation -

Networking Equipment:

ComTrend modem (1st Floor) - Receives internet through DSL and has 4 ethernet ports
WRT54GL Linksys wireless router
Belkin wireless router (don't have the model number off hand, but can get it if needed)

I also have a second Linksys wireless router, not sure of the model number though, or even if it works for sure, but can pull it out if I need to.

2. XBox 360 - Wired
3. PC with Windows 7 - Wired (2 ports, if there is any advantage to connecting both of them, though it isn't used for internet/networking much)
4. DirecTV Receiver - Wired

1. PC running Windows 7 - Wired
2. PC Running Windows 7 - Wired or Wireless, but wired preferred
3. Nintendo Wii - Wireless
4. Network Printer - Wired or wireless, but wired preferred
5. DirecTV Receiver - Wired

If you have a wire between the locations, two wireless routers will solve your issue I believe. Setup the primary router connected to the ISP in the standard configuration, then configure the secondary router as follows. This will give you a wireless point on each floor as well as Ethernet ports. You can expand either router's wired ports with a simply switch if you have more wired devices than jacks.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc. Note that you should use the same SSID and encryption key for the secondary router but a non-con... Read more

When I boot up, I get the following message:

Intel Matrix Storage Manger Option ROM v. ICH7R wRaid
Option Rom will not be loaded

I'm also having difficulty accessing the configuration screen on start-up.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Are you using RAID?

It would help to know more about your system.

Just a question more out of curiosity than anything else, a few months ago I changed from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook 2003, as I have got used to using that at work.

Question is (only recently noticed) is that when I send emails that I attach a picture to, when I go to the sent folder (in Outlook Express before the change) it used to put the picture in the body of the email and you could see how the person you sent it to seeís it.

But only just noticed recently that since using Microsoft Outlook 2003 that when I go to the sent folder it shows the email has been sent but it does not put the picture in the body of the email.

Now this is no biggy, but sometimes I like to see how it looks to the recipient, and since itís taken me a couple of months to notice obviously I donít look at this that often.

But I am curious as to if I can have it like that in Microsoft Outlook 2003 also, if so, I donít even know to where to start looking as to where that option might be if in fact its there.

Thanks in advance to any Microsoft Outlook 2003 guruís out there.

first , I have windows XP SP2 if that would matter
and my question is :
in the queue option in IDM there is " download # files at the same time " and when I set the number to 1 it should only download one file then after it finishes that starts downloading another one .. just like queue

is that right , or I'm misunderstanding its function cuz it's not working that way .. it always download everything together unless I manage the downloading order manually

any ideas ??

another question but not as important ^^'

I integrated IDM with all browsers and found out some differences mainly between (FireFox,IE8) and opera:
1- both FF,IE have "download with IDM" option in the right-click options , opera doesn't.
2- both FF, IE when catching an FLV content get the correct file name , opera names everything videoplayback.FLV .

any ideas about that as well is so much appreciated , cuz even though I have like 5 browser but I love opera the most .

thanks alot , have a nice day.
