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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Answer:Kaspersky IS 2017 vs Norton IS 2017 vs Bitdefender IS 2017

bitdefender free+ CF and SAP i think will be good

So today, as usual, i brought my laptop to school and when used it for about 25 minutes. Once i was about to put away my laptop I used my touch screen to sign out It froze on me and wouldn't sign-out. I had to leave to my next class so I just closed my laptop and left./ My next period i wasn't using my laptop at all but it was in my backpack for 90 minutes. Once coming back to my backpack I noticed that my backpack was extremely hot i check my laptop and it was extremely hot. I could not even touch the laptop without burning my hands. I was able to take the laptop out with a paper towel and from there on held the laptop to try and get it to cool down. I opened up my laptop and it was on and still at the sign out screen frozen. I turned it off by holding the power button for a while. I let it cool off and once it was very cold i charged it. After turning it on there is no problems and its not overheating anymore. I don't know if this is a common problem or maybe i just did something to cause it but it isn't currently overheating anymore.

I have just got my Dell XPS 15 and it has couple of issues with the keyboard:
1) The Enter key is not travelling smooth and producing some weird creaky sounds.
2) The right arrow key seems to have some strange defect as it jumps out of the place
This is very disappointing and this kind of issues are not even the case with cheap laptops.
Does anyone have an idea what can be done in this case?

I just bought Dell vostro 15 laptop few weeks ago. It was working just fine. The problem occured few days ago. My laptop was getting stuck and there is no response for mouse click. So I plug out the battery and put it back. But When I power on the laptop just right after, it is not getting on. My AC adapter are working just fine. The white led turn on for few second and goes off. I tried to do what normal people do. I watched the YouTube videos and search for any information in the hope of getting a solution. I didn't get anything useful. So help me sort this out.

Answer:Regarding getting power on for Dell vostro 15(2017)

If the LED on the adapter goes out when you connect the system, there's a short circuit inside the system - start by contacting Dell for a warranty repair.

I just received my new dell 15/5000.  After setup, I noticed that the touchpad buttons are integral with the touchpad itself, meaning that movement on the button moves mouse pointer which is very annoying.  Is there a way to fix this?  Also, while checking drivers for touchpad, it appears it only has the generic microsoft drivers.  Searches on the dell driver download for this model do not show the "Dell" driver or software like seen on other models when searching this problem.  It appears that with the dell software, you can adjust the touchpad area and move it off the buttons.  Please help.

My new 2017 Dell XPS-13 2-in-1 arrived today and just finished testing it with our Apple Thunderbolt Displays & new Apple Thunderbolt Adapter ($29). Plugged it (adapter / mini-dp pigtail) into the LEFT USB-C port and monitor sprang to life without any issues. The LEFT port appears to have a higher class of protocol extensions. The Dell also works in "lid-closed" condition, but requires an "open-shut" to activate sleep after disconnecting.
We also have a Acer R240Hy Usb-C display which works (charge/video) from both ports. The LEFT port is smooth for FHD, but the RIGHT usb-c has drops under FHD.

Hi all,
I recently purchased an Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop from Dell and have encountered a few issues.
Computer Specs:
OS: Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700HQ Kabylake
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB 
Memory: 8GB (1x) DDR4
Storage: 1TB Hybrid Drive
The rest can be found here
Upon first setup there were issues installing the NVIDIA drivers where the install would fail multiple times - eventually I got the driver to install. Then I had some issues with the graphics card enabling when I would play games so I just changed the setting in the NVIDIA control panel to always use the dedicated GPU. After playing some AAA titles such as GTA V and Arma III, I am experiencing what appears to be throttling. On low or ultra settings, my FPS remains around 45-50 (sometimes a little higher before stutter) on most games which surprised me because the dedicated GPU is a 1050 Ti which has higher specs than what the games need. After playing for maybe an hour, the game starts to frequently stutter, dropping frames for a couple seconds then boosting back and so on. I have monitored the temperature of both the GPU and CPU which reach ~56 degrees Celsius and ~70 degrees Celsius respectively. I have also monitored the usage of the CPU and memory during play, the CPU not reaching full usage and the memory reaching about 90% usage. I have also monitored the GPU performance through GPU-Z and will attach the file below. I have virtually tried everything that I can thi... Read more

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

When I use vlc player, it opens the audio file, advances the time elapsed, but the speakers are silent

I ran Windows diagnostics.
Windows diagnostics detected conflict with sound card enhancements, so I disabled them, then rebooted.
I uninstalled the only recent Windows update, which was Feb. 21 windows update of Adobe Flash player.  I re-booted.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Just threw this article together, I want all the brain's in this forum to chip in and if there is anything missing from this article (at all!) let me know ASAP, in this thread.

A top quote :

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

The S10 has been out for a while, yet it is hard to find any retailer that carries it. I like to use Amazon because I get free 2 day shipping from them. The S10 shows up as "Available for Pre-Order" in their website. A little frustrated, I actually called them the other day to find out why it wasn't available yet. They told me that they are waiting to get a shipment from Lenovo, and that the S10 should be in stock in a few weeks. I believe Lenovo have an amazing product with the S10, hopefully they can improve availability so that it is convenient to get one.

Anyone know where I can get a copy of Zone Alarm Firewall (Free) Vers. 6.1.744? I've used ZA for a couple years and had no problems. Decided to update to the latest version (6.5.731 from Maj Geeks). Would never completely load and was using 100% of my CPU, so I couldn't do anything else with the machine. Finally got rid of it (clean uninstall) and went to the Zone Alarm forum where I learned that too many people are having problems with all the 6.5. versions. Current wisdom seems to be that the last trouble-free version was 6.1.744. Can't find it on ZA's site, however, only the Anti-Virus for that version.

I didn't really think internet access would be an issue as this commercial area has been established for 30 years and supports a lot of tech oriented businesses (there is an ISP 1 block away -,-95.383994&sspn=19.40771,19.313965&ie=UTF8&hq=&t=h&ll=44.872994,-93.402886&spn=0.018309,0.027037&z=16).

I've called up ~7 ISP's and the BEST service i can get in the area is a 3mbps DSL line? Apparently Qwest owns the copper in the area and the nearest station is ~11,000 ft away. Comcast owns the cable in the area but they are 1/2 mile away with no intent of moving closer. According to the ISP that is 1 block away Qwest pulled out a lot of the copper and replaced it with fiber, although the fiber doesn't go to our building either. So now i'm stuck with a 3 down / 1 up DSL line or buying multiple T1's which doesn't seem cost effective at all.

Anyone have any ideas of strategies i'm missing? It seems pretty backwards that in this type of area I can't get decent service.

Answer:ISP Availability

As bad as it may be, T1's are still the basic standard for telco connections. Hopefully this changes soon, have you seen if you can get fast ethernet from anyone like Cogent (They may be only in my area). Normally is a T1 services the building you can get some decent connections but they cost a lot.

When you say comcast is 1/2 mile away do you mean their closest cable is 1/2 mile away and they want to charge you to run it to the building?

Question: SP3 availability

Im finding it difficult to locate XP SP3 as a seperate individual downloadable file (so i could keep on disc - for installs). Microsoft give a link for this - but only if you are deploying it via a network. Is SP3 only available via torrents? I take it, that it would be compatible with both Home on Pro versions?


Answer:SP3 availability

The one available for deployment via Networks is just fine to use on a home machine. It is the same thing. SP3 no matter what will always be the same thing. Be it for Home or Pro, via Network or via Windows Update. It will ALWAYS be the same thing. Would be pointless to make different versions cause then you would have to know which version you are getting to make sure that your software was compatible.

Not to mention:

I have been unable to find acurate broadband availability maps for my specific area of Northwest Washington state.
Specificly I need to know aproximatly when DSL or tower (clearwire) services will become available in rural areas of Skagit county. I now use an almost worthless G3 type connection-expensive and s-l-o-w !
Google searches and contractor sites seem worthless.
Any help is apreciated.

Answer:Broadband availability map

Determining coverage for an existing service should be as simple as going to the provider's website and looking at a coverage map or inputting address information.

Determining future coverage also requires going to the provider's website since they're the only ones who know when and where they're planning to expand. They may or may not provide that information.

Clearwire is 4G WiMax with availability in large cities. I doubt they have any rural area coverage.

Networking Problem

I wish to establish a Network of four computers by Direct Cable connection without Internet sharing.
I have two computers connected with the following configuration:

Desktop A
Windows 95
Client for MS Networks
3 Com Etherlink 10/100 adapter
NetBEUI – 3 Com Etherlink 10/100 protocol
File & Printer sharing

Desktop B
Windows 98
Client for MS Networks
Gold Card… 10/100b Card Bus (NDIS 5) adapter
NetBEUI – Gold Card… 10/100b Card Bus (NDIS 5) protocol
File & Printer sharing

The network of these two computers operates correctly.

I have newly purchased two new computers and set up networking on them using the Windows Me Network Wizard.

Desktops C and D
Windows Me

Cnet Pro200WL PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
Cnet Diagnostic Protocol - Cnet Pro200WL …

The network of C and D operates correctly.

The Primary Network Logon for all four computers is Windows Logon.

What doesn’t work is the Networking together of the four computers.

I have made the required Setup Disk from the Windows Me Networking Wizard and run this on computers A and B which have W95 and W98 respectively.

The W95 computers called for the W95 Setup CD but would not read this. As the files being asked for were already installed on the W95 computer I used “Skip File” to Finish. The W98 computer did not ask for the Windows 98 Setup CD.

Answer:Networking Availability

I would first make sure that they were all part of the Same workgroup. I would then install TCP/IP on all of them since NetBUEI is entirely to chatty. You should then configure the TCP/IP with a 192.168.x.x address. Then select the subnet mask usually somewhere in the 255.255.x.x range. THough I can't remember if you are required to add a gateway, you can use the address of 192.168.x.1 I believe, someone correct me if I am wrong.

After you set it up this way, you should be able to see everything.

Hi all......

i reinstalled windows the other day on my secondary HDD (dual boot), but ive just now noticed this ..

''memory remap'' is enabled & ive got the full 8gb accessible on the primary drive..??

any idea where this RAM is hiding.

Answer:Weired RAM availability..???

Perhaps this will explain:

Note When the physical RAM that is installed on a computer equals the address space that is supported by the chipset, the total system memory that is available to the operating system is always less than the physical RAM that is installed. For example, consider a computer that has an Intel 975X chipset that supports 8 GB of address space. If you install 8 GB of RAM, the system memory that is available to the operating system will be reduced by the PCI configuration requirements. In this scenario, PCI configuration requirements reduce the memory that is available to the operating system by an amount that is between approximately 200 MB and approximately 1 GB. The reduction depends on the configuration.

The system memory that is reported in the System Information dialog box in Windows Vista is less than you expect if 4 GB of RAM is installed

Although the article is for Vista, the same would apply for W7.

I am looking for a replacement for my X60s. First thing, that came up into my mind was X201s. I looked at the U.S. Lenovo website and found out that I am not able to order it from there; however, on the U.K. website it is available for order. Then I searched this forum for information, have not found any reasonable explanation. The only thing I found was the assumption that this is because of lack of the i7 processor, but i7 is back in stock, while X201s is not. I continued further my investigation and found post on the forum: ?The entire x201s line is discontinued? They are still available among resellers because there are remaining inventories in the resellers channel. I guess I should have made my line more refined. The x201s has been discontinued in the US, at least. Not sure about other countries?.? Do you have any thoughts on that? Was there any confirmation or press release from Lenovo? They have discontinued X300 series, maybe the author of the post got confused, or we will be left without also without X201s, which I consider as THE masterpiece?

I've I can wait and it isn't too long I just don't want to... Like you said, I think the Samsung Series 5 Slate is available at Staples, but you have to look in-store. Is it OOS at your local stores?
And unfortunately, it seems that most of the pro tablets won't be available until November or later for some reason. One that I do see available though is the Sony VAIO Duo 11, but it's quite pricey because it's Sony and it runs a Core i7 low voltage processor, and it uses a N-Trig digitizer instead of Wacom if that matters to you.
I'm not quite sure what the delay is, especially since a month or two back some of the news outlets were saying certain devices would be released when Windows 8 is launched on the 26th, but now released dates have been moved back to just "sometime in November."

I've been user of IBM computers since long time and i didn't had any such problem of not putting announced product in the market ??anyone can help??

this venue is the wrong place to ask that particular question..
all here must kind of only say what would be approved be the company..
i happen to know a fellow who lives in dubai and gets a new thinkpad every few years..
he is iranian and his mother lives in (or near) nice, france..
so its not an impossible dream, just a little tricky..
what I would do in your place would be to find an online dealer and buy from them and if need be just take delivery to a friend in the USA and have him ship it to you in dubai..
this will raise the cost since fedex or DHL is costly to dubai..
but you will get a new thinkpad and if you get together with your friends you can save on the shipping by shipping two or three..
you MIGHT have warranty issues but thats another story and this MIGHT be the reason that particular model is sold only to large enterprises..

Good afternoon,
I have just come across what I consider to be an annoying problem. I have been using a couple of programme that gave various bits of data ? so it?s my own fault for not having properly looked and understood before!! ? and one of these is the amount of ram available. I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit, and have installed 4 GB of ram. I realise that a fair chunk of it will be used by windows but assumed that something between 2 and 3 GB would have been available to the programmes I run. BUT both of the programmes are saying there is just over 1 GB of ram available. Now I do not have the expertise to be able to work out whether this refers to the amount still available OR is the amount that windows makes available. Can some one tell me how to check out what is available immediately after booting up, when it is only the desktop that is running? I am presuming that as virtually nothing else will be being used this will show the maximum amount of available ram. If there is a way of increasing the amount of available ram, at this point, that would be even better.
Many thanks in advance to all who reply.

Answer:T430 EU availability

Hi Dodger, Most models are orderable now, and I expect my first NL shipment to arrive the 13th of June. You can send me a private message if you would like to discuss the various options :-) Cheers Willem

Been looking at laptops for a while with the aim to get one in December. When I looked before the Y500 looked perfect for what I was after however after realizing they were releasing a new model (y510p,) I decided to hold off in wait. I remember calling Lenono support some time in July and was told the model would be available sometime in August however now in October, it still doesn't seem to be available from UK retailers. I can buy it from the lenovo website however with the estimated shipping time, it's clearly imported so might as well just import it from a US based seller. Anyway, before I go the import route, I was wondering if anyone knew any info on if the Y510p will be available from UK based retailers in the next few months? 

Answer:Y510p UK availability
