Preferred Solution: Giant Savings - HELP REQUIRED

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: Giant Savings - HELP REQUIRED

Sorted: C -> program files-> delete 'Giant Savings' (delete recycle bin as well)
Uninstall it in control panel.
Remove extension in chrome.

I have been trying to remove the "Instant Savings App" from my Chrome Browser Extensions with a tremendous amount of difficulty, and without success.

I have uninstalled it via the windows7 Programs and features tab, removed a duplicate copy from Chrome Extensions (how I got a duplicate copy I do not know), removed from Firefox (which I have reverted back to) but have not used this for at least 12 months, searched with what I know from the registry, checked through the various folders for the program, installed the latest Malwarebytes program and ran a full scan, removed whatever file that was recommended, ran CCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool utility.

OK, so this is what I have got: I found that I could NOT remove the duplicated Instant Savings App from the extensions in Google Chrome. There is NO Rubbish Bin icon to do this. I discovered also the app showed it was managed by a company and could not be removed! I sent a message to Google but I do not expect to get a reply, something I'm afraid they are not good at.

What pissed me off was whenever I did a search with Google search, as I read down all of a sudden this App would appear at the top of the page displaying say three further options a prices??? and push the remaining options I was reading down the page. Bloody annoying, and I really have no idea how the App got there in the first place, or when.

I have since uninstalled Chrome, then re-installed it but no, the damb thing is still there. I have uninstal... Read more

I used to have Giant AntiSpyware but it has been taken over by Microsoft.
I downloaded their new version when my subscription expired but when I installed it, it froze my computer?

Recently my computer has started displaying giant pixels anytime I want to start up a computer game like The Sims or Trickster. For a while I thought it was just 3-d games that were not working but then I tried playing a 2-d pixel game, and I had the same problom, here is a screen cap of what I am talking about.

The computer that I am running is a eMachines T3256.
It has a nvidia GeForce 4 MX graphics card.
Is there anyways that I could fix this with buying a nother card, or downloading something, or will I have to take my computer in to someone to fix it?
 

A:Giant pixels, I need help

Re The Sims (original?) - your card should be able to play that

Re Trickster - your card doesn't support DX8 for 1.1 pixel shaders so probably cannot play that

Re the pixel problem - uninstall your present nVidia dtrivers in Add/Remove programs, reboot, and install the latest drivers.

edit: if the l;atest drivers don't fix it, uninstall them and try one of the 53.xx series - they apparently could, with hardware assisted software emulation, support vertex shader model 1.1.

When I add an attachment, the image appears huge to the receiver. How do I reduce the size of the image.
 

A:giant images

Hi carol, you would need to reduce the image size in a graphics program, like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro. Adobe Photoshop is rather expensive, but Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are arouns $100. There are free image editors out there, I just don't know the names of them, try going to http://www.download.com and look under the graphics section and there should be some editors there you could either download for free or atleast get a free trial to see if you like them. Hope I have helped.

I somehow turned off the giant close button, the one you see in windows explorer, the internet window, and in winmail. The only problem is I liked the giant close button. I think what I did is change the theme to classic, and then back to vista, and it gave me this rounded box as a close button. I was just wondering if there was any way to put it back the way it was. Here is a picture

A:Giant Close button

Hello WeirdFrog, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I'm not sure of what you mean. That is the normal close button in Vista for non classic themes.

You might see if adjusting the size of the Caption Buttons item in the Advanced Appearance settings (step 6) to a large size may help. It will increase the size of the close button.

You can also change what pop-ups are allowed by going to Internet Options > Privacy > Pop-up Blocker Settings. Personally, I block all pop-ups and then whitelist any sites that I want to allow pop-ups from (or CTRL click links to open in a new window and bypass the pop-up blocker manually).

When I checked quick launch my taskbar grew to double its size. No matter how I moved or squashed it, it was either gone or double, but never the normal size. As soon as I uncheck quick launch I can compress the taskbar back to normal. Ideas and fixes welcomed.

Have you got large icons selected for the quick launch taskbar?

To check, unlock the taskbar, then right-click on the quick-launch bar, and from the popup menu choose view, then large or small icons. Small icons will return the taskbar to normal size if this is what the problem is.

Hi,

I know that sometimes default settings get changed by accident. If you want you can try and change the settings for the browser. If you hold down the CTRL key and then use your scroll wheel you can change the size of the text on the page. I can look for a more permanent solution for you if this doesn't work.

I am dying to pull the trigger on the new X1Y3, but the price is eye-watering (HDR option).  I have been looking for any savings/sales/promos but can find any that apply. Anyone found anything?

Well now that the time change is on a new schedule, how many issues do you think will come about? LOL And we all know that Micro$oft can't fix this in time, since it takes them years to find fixes.

Hi hello!! Just wondering if anyone knows of a gadget which will just let me set a savings goal(money) and then let me manually tell it how much more I've put in the "pot" as it were.

Here's a rough illustration to show what I'm after:-
Your savings goal
?---------^-----------?
?0_______?______ ?7,000
_________?
________?3,000
_______(I wish lol)

A:Savings Goal Gadget

Welcome
Its almost 10 hours and no replies. Guess none here know of such a gadget. I know that I do not.
May I suggest. If you have excel, you can make up a simple worksheet, showing the information that you need and put a short cut on the desktop.

Hi

I have had a virus installed on my computer called rebate giant. It has 2 files on my desktop (one called rebate informer and one called rebate giant). I know how to remove files through the registry editor and was wondering if anyone had the file paths for me to manually remove it??

Beth

A:Rebate informer/giant

I don't think rebate informer/rebate giant qualifies as a virus. It looks as though it installs an Inbox.com toolbar and some desktop shortcuts. Uninstall the applications, and the toolbar, and delete the shortcuts if they are left behind.

There are no files in the registry, but there are references to files. Be mindful of travels in the registry.

I was super excited to see the 4th Gen X1 Yoga released, but so dissapointed when I looked at the pictures.That giant bottom bezel. What is going on here? Who in their right mind released that in the year 2019?All the other manufacturers seem to be slowly cottoning on what the market wants (hint: not 16:9), yet here we seem to be stuck with completely wasted real estate on the laptops.It just makes no sense, the market is all about trying to get bigger screens in a smaller device.The easiest way to do that is to put a 14" 16:10/3:2 screen in a 12.5" body. Does Lenovo have any official word on this? They have so many unnecessary overlapping models, yet not a single offering that has what we all want. The XPS13 2-in-1 with the 16:10 screen is going to decimate sales.I've stayed true to my 8 year old X220 which is still going strong, yet unless something gets announced by Lenovo by end of July, it's bye bye lenovo from me.

At some point a few months after I got my Sony VAIO the desktop icons became huge. It doesn't appear to affect working of the computer. However it gets pretty crowded with only two or three short cuts. It looks all kind of wrong.

I have looked for other advice. I have tried the screen resolution etc etc so I am all out of answers. Any help would be fantastic.

If I'm not mistaken, daylight savings time beginning and ending times will be changed this year. Am I to assume that we only have to make changes on Servers of which the clients get their time from? Outside of that, other systems that aren't server dependent such as UPS machines and such, will need the time to be changed manually?

Just curious if anyone has already started to work on this.

Sorry if this doesn't belong in this particular forum. Wasn't sure where to ask.

"On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November. The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to resume the 2005 Daylight Saving Time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete."

hi, i have windows vista on a toshiba satellite a305. 
since daylight savings started,  the computer wont keep the hour-ahead time. it reverts back to hour-behind time.
i have tried different internet time servers and going off the sync with internet time server all together.
i have tried manually adjusting the time ,  checking and unchecking the box automatically adjusting for daylight savings.
 
 
and what ever i do, it reverts back to regular daylight time, not daylight savings. 
it usually occurs after several minutes, i come back after a while and reverts back to old time.
 
could it be because the daylight savings time is earlier this year than in past years.
for example in 2006 daylight savings started on april 2. 
if memory serves me i had a similar problem last year, and it went away after a few weeks,
could that be why?
 
any thoughts, let me know

A:wont keep daylight savings time ?

Look in Date and Time in the Control panel and make sure that your time zone is set correctly for your location.
