Hi all,

For the past few days, if not a week now, I've noticed that when I switch to Basic theme for RAM intesive programs like Adobe After Effects, Windows is quite slow, almost running as though my laptop is 1GB not 2GB RAM.
Though when I switch to Aero theme, Windows is only slightly slower with Adobe After Effects running.

My laptop is Compaq Presario CQ56, 2GB shared graphics and I can't explain why the Basic theme is running slow whereas Aero is responding faster, so much so, programs tend to stop responding more frequently on Basic.

I have run MSE, MBAM and SAS (MSE realtime, others are standalone mode) and found no viruses and I update them all either daily or every two days.

I only have Realtek Audio and MSE on Startup so I can't figure out why this happening!

Thanks in advance for any insight as to what's happened/happening

Answer:Windows 7 Home Premium basic theme is slow but aero theme is fast?

How much dedicated video memory does the laptop have?
It's conceivably possible that you are actually dumping more onto the system reserved ram by turning it off If the configuration is sharing ram with your video card anyway.

The "original" theme for my windows 10 when I installed it had colorable innersides, after I went into themes and changed it to "default theme" it got stuck as this "default" theme that is all white with custom color borderline. I've tried changing to the other themes but nothing works, I tried resetting I tried everything. At this point the only option I can think of is to go back to windows 7 then reupgrade to windows 10 again and never touch the custom themes.....

Hey all,

I've seen several tutorials online for installing themes on Windows Vista. I've patched the necessary files using VistaGlazz, and have downloaded themes from various sites. The instructions tell you to move both the folder and the .theme file into the C:/Windows/Resources/Themes folder, but all the file seems to download is the folder. Where would I find the .theme file? All of the tutorials that I've seen just seem to assume that there's a .theme file there, but in all of the themes that I've downloaded (from various sites), there doesn't seem to be one.

Help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

can anybody give me any advice or a solution to my problem? just today i turned on my laptop and it said that windows had changed my theme and colour scheme, then i came to realise that my premium version of vista looked like it was the basic version. switchin between windows no longer provides that swanky 3d view and is replaced by a little box with icons. when i rest my mouse upon my bar at the bottom, i no longer get a little version of the window, i just get a dull beige text box. all these problems are purely superficial but one of the reasons i got vista was because of its style and way it looked. any tips?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Hello. I've recently reformatted my computer and since then I've been having this rather annoying problem. When I select classic theme from the personalization menu then try to switch back to my custom theme, the only thing that changes is the color scheme but nothing else after the "Please Wait" dialog. Restarting the computer is the only way to make custom themes work again.

I've tried running the troubleshooter for aero when it happens but it doesn't find any issues.

Some of my games require transparency/aero to be completely off to reduce input delay/other issues. And since I close/open the game sometimes several times, I like to keep it on classic as long as I'm in my gaming session.

Side question: Does anyone know how to make custom log on screen background stick? Mine likes to revert back to default randomly.

Answer:Can't change back to custom theme from classic theme w/o restarting

Are you trying to use a 3rd party custom theme?

For the logon screen I used Option 1 of this tutorial Log On Screen - Change it have never reverted back.

I had four themes for Firefox, including the default one. When I opened Firefox, I was told that the one I was currently trying, called Midnight Fox, had an available update to install, so I did so. When it was done, every theme, including the default one, was "Disabled for your protection. Known to cause security/stability issues". Obviously, I'm unable to browse using Firefox, now. I managed to somehow reach the add-ons tab of Firefox (via squinting just to see the text) and when I clicked Use Theme on either of the only two available themes I can see (Orbit Orange and MidnightFox), it states that both "Require additional items". What the hell should I do?

Edit: Problem solved. Through rough navigation, I managed to go to the firefox addon page and install a random theme, allowing me to uninstall each corrupt theme.

Hi There

Could somebody advise me how I can change the Windows 8 Theme to the Windows 7 default theme. I cannot seem to find it on the system and the selection Windows 8 has is very limited.

Not very keen on flowers

Regards

Des

Answer:Change Windows 8 theme to Window 7 default theme

You can't. If you want the win 7 theme you will have to go with a third party program or theme (style). You can fine a great many themes for win 8 on the internet by using Google, or there is Stardock's Windowblinds which allows you to use hundreds of different themes (though not all of them are worth having) they do have win 7 themes which give you the look you may be looking for (price $9.95). I use a theme which gives we the look of OS X (to each their own). . .Good Luck.

So, I recently reinstalled my Windows 7 and tried to install custom themepack I had before, but instead of applying it Windows just changes it's theme to basic. Before the re-installation everything worked fine. I didn't even have to patch system files to apply custom theme. I tried repairing Windows system files with System files checker (it found some corrupted files and said they're fixed or something). I Installed UXStyle, neither it helped. I tried to install custom packs with 7tsp but the result is the same.
The fresh-installed Windows is the same that was installed before.

Answer:MS Office 2013 Theme...can we change the color theme?

As far as I know there is no way you can change the colour scheme & I don't know of any 3rd party software to change it either.
I use Office 2013 Pro & while I was not impressed by the colour schemes to begin with, I have got quite used to it. While it is nice to be able to play with colour schemes it does not make it work any better.

I have downloaded an icon theme from www.everaldo.com The icons look great but I have no idea how to apply them. I downloaded it as a .tar.gz and then I extracted it to a folder containing folders with different sized icon, a file called ".dolphinview" and an "index.theme" file. I tried simply opening the index.theme file from "themes" in display properties but it cannot read it. When I open it in OOO and compare it to a theme it looks very different, a theme starts with [Theme] whereas this begins with [Icon Theme].

I thought it would of been third party applications may be disallowing the change(s) from "sticking" so i got rid of McAfee and spy bot temporary just to taste it out but nothing happen.

Question: DVD Creation

I'm sure several dozen threads have banged this topic into submission before, but my head is spinning from all the reading I've done lately... So if someone could just point me in the right direction at 'least, heh.

Mainly, I'm looking for a good tool to create DVD-Rs out of existing video files on my computer (in a way that will allow them to play on stand-alone players), most of the guides and such that I tend to find usually detail the opposite process... That is, how to rip/encode DVDs and other stuff for portable players, HTPCs, etc. From what I understand tools like Handbrake/AutoGK simply perform this conversion...

So what exactly do I need to go in the opposite direction? Do I need to use an authoring program like TMPGEnc or will something like SUPER suffice for a quick burn? To be honest I haven't really dived in and tried using any of these programs yet, most I've done is make backup copies of my own DVDs (or my cousin's toddler's movies) using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink.

I have some files that I'd like to burn onto a DVD... how do I do that? I currently only have Nero, and if it does convert the files into DVD format, I haven't figured it out. Any help? Thanks...
 

Answer:AVI or MPG DVD creation

Burning them as MPG or AVI should be as simple as adding them to a data DVD project in Nero, and burning.

However, if you want to create a DVD that is playable in (non DivX) DVD players, then you will need to convert the files into DVD format first. I've always liked DivXToDVD for this purpose. This will convert an AVI or MPEG video into an ISO file. You can then burn this ISO file as a data DVD project, and it will translate into the necessary file structure (ie. VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS at the disc's root) as well as the correct filetypes (*.VOB).

However, DivXtoDVD has been discontinued, and the SHAREWARE version ConvertXToDVD has replaced it. I've never used this, so I can't comment on what kind of job it does.

Another freeware alternative is AVI2DVD, but I've found that this program often messes up the sync between video and audio.

All these programs work the same... put in an AVI/MPEG, spit out an ISO, then burn the ISO, and you should have a working disc. Let us know if you have any problems.

Question: DvD Creation

I burned a DVD of "Motivational Posters" and some music. It burned correctly and it loads in everything.

The problem is that my DVD player sucks. It only plays the pictures and I can't find any way to play the music at all.

So my question is:

Is there a way I can set up a DVD menu type thing to open up the music folder by folder?

EDIT:

I meant on the same disk. It's a DVD+R. Or am I going to have to make a new disk? and If I were to make a new disk what free software could I use for MP3's? Burner XP is what I used, and Xilisoft's DVD Creator only allows me to work with Videos.

Answer:DvD Creation

The only option for a DVD to play music if it does not support mp3's, is to encode the music into a dvd Movie with either a blank video track or even some of the poster images you have used. Most DVD players do support file browsing for mp3 so try messing around with the menus when you have the disc inserted.

Hope this helps!

That's too vague. You'll need to provide more specifics, especially on if you imagine any part of the website polling a database or external data sources. You'll also need to read up on steps to harden a web server.

Hi All, I want to tidy up the PC and was going to do a reinstall of XP on one partition and all the applications on another, the aim being that I can then back up each drive to an image which will be small enough for a CD. Alternately so I can then split the file over a number of Cd's once I have the 'supposed ideal' set up. Since I upgraded from W2k I thought it would also help to clear things up and improve system performance by reducing junk files and such. Would anyone be able to say how large XP and say, AV program, IE6, drivers and all 'required' files take up as an image? I would do as I normally do and place the applications on another partition. Any help as always much appreciated. P

Question: Reg File Creation

I'm not very good in the area of the registry, but here goes. I know you can create reg files to add certain entries, but how would you go about deleting keys via a reg file? For example, on every XP machine of mine, I always go to regedit, and to the following string:
HKey Local Machine > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version > Explorer > Volume Caches > Compress Old Files
and delete the Compress Old Files key. Can this be made into a .reg file, so instead of drilling through the registry, I can just run the file to remove that particular key?
 

Answer:Reg File Creation

Just add the minus " - " sign in front of the registry key you want to delete:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Explorer\ VolumeCaches\Compress old files]



It works for me all the time

In the "Big 8" hierarchies (comp, humanities, misc, news, rec, sci, soc, and talk), you submit a formal proposal (a Request for Discussion, or RFD) to the moderator of news.announce.newgroups, who then posts it to that group, to news.groups, and to other newsgroups that have an interest in the proposal. The proposal is then discussed for at least three weeks in news.groups. You may need to revise and re-submit the RFD for another round of discussion (or two, or three...).see click here for further information

Does anyone know of a (preferably freeware) tool that can batch create thumbnails of the first page of a PDF document (in my case - the front cover) for use as image links in web pages.Currently I have to view the page in Reader, screenshott it, paste it into PSP, shrink it and finally save it with the tn_ prefix - a right pain.Thankx in advance.

Answer:PDF Thumbnail Creation

I use Adobe Acrobat, which is hardly free, or sometimes GhostScript and The GIMP on Linux.If you are a handy coder and want to play, you could try this rather nice .NET solution: click hereThere are also ways of using PHP, but there isn't enough space in this forum to go through the necessary steps, code and the required PDF server support. You could say that it's a bit involved and, frankly, the return on the time investment is hardly worth it unless you have hundreds or even thousands of PDF files.Off the top of my head I'm taking a guess that Adobe Photoshop could batch process this. Photoshop can open PDF files. You get to select which page of a given file you wantt o view and you can edit it in Photoshop. Note that this creates enormous files by comparison to Acrobat, but it can be done and Photoshop has a very nice batch editor so you could feasibly create your batch process and run it on a directory of PDF files.A friend of mine (yes I do have one!) suggested the Pdf995 Suite to me a while ago but I've not had the time as yet to dip my toe: click hereAside from that, nothing springs readily to mind that would be in any way simple.

One of the first things that I noticed about Windows 8 is that it now has native support for viewing PDF files, like the Mac OS. However, the functionality seems extremely limited. For many years now I have found programs like Adobe Acrobat and Nitro PDF indispensable at home and at work. Adobe seems to have a PDF Reader app for Win 8 but it is getting very poor reviews. Am I right in assuming that Win 8 has no native functionality for generating PDF files? Also, the range of PDF apps in the Windows 8 app store seems very limited. Is it best for now to stick with the old standbys? E.g., Foxit, Adobe, Nitro, CutePDF, etc.?

I will also be able to provide money to go to the support of the antivirus creation but i wont be able to for awhile because i have to get a place to live and a new job. This antivirus will be a pretty good antivirus because it will also be made into a iso which provides a better chance of removing viruses. If you are into antiviruses and things of that nature then you would have nothing to loose and alot to gain from doing this. We could make the antivirus free or cheap or similar to other antivirus prices. If for every person working on this was to add a dollar to the cost then at 1 million downloads we could be millionaires(im not doing this for the money but money will give people more reason to help).

If you can make this into a donation based project kind of open alternative to HitMan Pro/FixMEStick I think allot people would like that. I mean obviously the extra AV/antimalware engines wouldn't be open source but the base could be based off ClamAV. I hope your idea succeeds.

Hello there,

To change the general info on your invoice, click on the "customize" button found directly below the invoice No. in the upper right of the actual invoice. That will open up the customization sheet. In there you can change any of the general things.
After you're done making the changes, click the lock and save button on that sheet to save the changes for the next time you use the invoice.
To close it and return to the invoice itself, click on the sheet tab at the top of the task bar at the bottom of your screen. It will say "invoice"

To change the date, just double click on the date on the invoice sheet and it was become active, thus letting you change it. When you are done just hit enter key on your key board to close it.

Im taking a class on my own on programming... I tried asking for help where Im taking this class but no response... I was hoping to get some help here in learning this better...

Question.....................

You have a database of student records. The database contains the following information:

StudentName

StudentIDNumber

Major Valid data > Business, Math, English, History,

GradeAverage Valid Data > 1.0 to 4.0 in .1 increments

ClassYear Valid Data > 1, 2, 3, 4 - each number represents the class year with 1 = Freshmen, 2 = Sophomore, etc.
Write the pseudocode for a program which will read this file of information and print a letter to each student who is eligible to join the new Honor Society. No students belong to it yet. Freshmen may not join the Honor Society, but membership is open to all other students who have a 3.5 average or above. There is a scholarship available for a History major who is a member of the Honor Society, so all history majors will need a special message (on the same letter is fine) advising them of this possibility.

Im struggling here.... I tried writing some but got confused... Any help here is greatly appreciated!

Hey everyone,

I am trying to look into what software or program would be a good option for a work project that I am trying to help out with.
The goal is to send training DVD's to our customers so that they do not have to come to us or us go to them for technical training on our products. We do not have any videos created for this just yet, but I am thinking that the DVD's will be a mix of video/audio/powerpoint content. Want to be able to skip chapters and have the customer be able to pick sections that they want to view at a time.
Have any of you used DVD creation software like this in the past and what was your experience with it?
Have any of you used Adobe Encore? Would that work for what I am trying to accomplish?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:DVD creation software

I have no experience with Encore, but if I was in a dire situation I would probably take your videos and edit the slideshows into a single video via a program like Vegas Pro. Then I would use CreateXtoDVD to convert it all to DVD format and add chapters in the appropriate places while also making a clean looking menu.

I'm sure there are better ways of doing this, but if I had to do what you're doing right now it's how I would tackle it.

Hi all.
I'm interested in creating a DVD (or series of DVD's) containing multimedia pub quizes. Different rounds of questions on various subjects, some written, picture, music and video rounds that can be played on any DVD player preferably but on a laptop at least. It would be good to be able to (for example) play the intro to a track and ask them to name it then play the same thing again (from the same screen) and have it carry on further into the track come answer time.
Does anyone know of any frontend software that would be good for this? Something written specifically for the task would obviously be best but anything that could do the job and has good online support and tutorials comes a close second.
Thanks in advance
