Preferred Solution: How do I make a bootabe CD?

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.)

I made a Slipstreamed Windows 7 installation, but my ISO is now 6,7 GigaByte. So it does not fit a normal DVD.

Is there a way i can "burn" that ISO onto a bootable USB and make the install from there?

when opening apps or scrolling down the Start Screen, the top bar is not shown. can i deactivate this feature to make signal strength, new notifications, battery and time always visible?
os: windows 10 mobile @ Lumia 640 xl

Answer:how can i make the top info bar (signal strength, time, battery ...) make alsways visible

While the status bar doesn't hide while scrolling down the Start screen, there's no such option to stop it from hiding on opening certain apps. It's up to the app's developer to decide whether or not to hide the bar. Meanwhile, some apps have inbuilt option to chose to hide or show the bar.

Hi. I just want to know if there is a hack that will make the print spooler start in safe mode. I'm using Windows Vista 64 bit. If there is no hack currently, could someone tell me of an easy way to create one? I know there was one for xp, but it didn't work for Windows Vista. Thanks.

I would have modified my original post to include this info, but a message came up saying that I couldn't edit my post after the first 15 minutes of posting it.

I have recently changed my browser from Chrome to Edge. With Chrome I had a Gmail Notifier icon showing when I opened my mail program. From this I had an option to have a sound play when incoming emails arrived. (Options/Notifications/Default Sound Notification/User Defined Sound/Browse) and then I could choose my sound. With Edge, I cannot see a Gmail Notifier and as a result am unable to set a choice of sound to notify me of new mail. I have downloaded Gmail Notifier but can't find a way around my problem.

In Windows 7 Pro, I want to have a second copy of my userkey.psw Password Reset Disk file, with the same password: one to keep in the building, the other to take offsite.

If I generate a second userkey.psw file using the Win7 utility, will it override an earlier one, even if the password has not changed?

If I make a copy of the userkey.psw file using Windows Explorer and put it on a CD, will it work?

Any links to official documentation on this would be most appreciated.

Previously when I was using Windows 7, the system restore points were created automatically whenever I installed a new SW or made other similar system change. But it seems not the case in Win 8 any more.

I am a SW developer. Although I normally test our SW on virtual machines, but some other time I just install part of it directly on the development machine. The SW of course might have some problem. Today when I tried to restore my system to a status right before I installed the problem SW, I just found out that I don't have these restore points. The system indeed created some restore points automatically, but those don't seem to cover all the changes I made to the system. Is there a way to configure it? Thanks!

Answer:How to make Win8 make restore points automatically

Maybe your restore point disk space allocation is inadequate to hold all restore points that might be created automatically. My record of restore points implies that restore points are being created for all SW installations, but the record does not go very far back in time.

Ghost, let me make sure before I make things worse.

If I add a second hard drive temporarily as a "slave" and use Ghost to clone the master to the slave, am I correct in assuming the following:

if I have problems with the original hard drive, I could reformat the drive add the "ghosted" drive as a slave and with Ghost transfer the "cloned" info to the original HD?

if I had imaged instead of cloned I could do the same as above?

If my assumptions are not correct or if there is a better way what should I do?

Hi,

I have several macros I've written for Word VB, which all work fine. But I would like to make them only affect all pages after page 3 in my documents, so that these first three pages are never affected by all the operations carried out in the macros. So, I want Word to only look at pages 4 up to the document's last page(this number varies). How can I do this be, please?

Thanks,

Answer:How to make Visual Basic Macro only make changes to certain pages

I'm not a word vba'er so I can't be much help past that. The next question would be how to GoTo that page? If you can GoTo nextpage until you get to 4 but you could also loop count and get there? Maybe others can provide better info, this might be enough info to 'Google' intellegently.

im a computer tech in a tiny town. i work out of my truck at peoples offices and homes. i only charge $20 an hour (minimum of 1 hour) for my services. 80% of what i do, is spend 5 minutes installing adaware, and spybot and cleanin up the remaining spyware from the registry.

that 5 minutes makes me $20 (which is a lot for a poor wanker like myself). pretty much i make money because other people are ignorant. i still make it a point to educate them, but there are a bazillion more people in this town i havent educated yet.

point is, spyware is a stupid people tax. they shouldnt make it illegal because its a super easy way for me to make money (besides propogating sasser or blaster or wahtever.... not that i have or would do that....).

id imagine if you read at hardocp then your smart enough to not be snared by spyware, so my corrupt evil ways wont harm you. so anyone agree with me? dissent? neutral? bush? kerry? maddox?
 

Answer:dont make spyware illegal! thats how i make money!!

By the same token, theft and burglary should be legal, as that gives the insurance companies reason to jack their rates higher.

You're welcome to infer my opinion on this.

my hp 6500 officejet is sending out real small type [letters]and numbers. My glasses are strong enough to read what my printer is putting out help needed as usuall thanks for anything. bob s i have the page site type ;increased to 150% but its not printing that size type

Answer:Can anyone tell me how to make too make printer letters bigger

If you are trying to print out something like webpage content, you can change the font size in Print Preview by changing to 150% or whatever and then select the number of pages to view.

Experiment with the sizes up from Shrink to fit then change the number of pages you want to view it in and you will see what the text output will look like in the varying number of pages and then you can select how many pages for what will suit your eyes.

If you leave the number of pages at 1 then it will probably revert to Shrink to fit and so print out in the smaller font size.

Once you are happy with how you think it will print, then click on the printer icon in the top left of the menu bar.

If you are printing a doc from a word processing program, then set the font size and type prior to creating the document within the program, otherwise you will need to highlight all of the text first before you can change to how you want it, and changing those settings after you've created the doc may not stick.

How can i make Windows to ask for admin password when trying to make changes in the computer and when trying to run the installer?
Google does not give me right results.

Answer:Make Windows ask for admin password when trying to make changes

I don't think you can stop users from making all changes. However if the account that they are using is a standard user account then it will ask for a administrator password when ever the UAC prompt comes up for system changes and installs.

Maybe you could take a drive image of the computer when it is in the state that you want it, then restore it when needed

i have a dedicated partition on my machine for drive image files, which are essentially just the same as norton ghost files.

everytime I make some major changes I give it a bit of time to see if everything is fine, then I update the images. I usually keep the image before that as well, so that if something emerges later I can go back to that.

I've seen a single update from windowsupdate.microsoft.com make my machine unbootable; i've seen a single updated driver trash the whole installation.

what you are doing is wise.

Hi.
I have two hdds (500gb 7200rpm) in my laptop and have 260gb of data on the second one. I wanted to create a partition for games at the beggining of the 2nd drive (the left side) as i heard it increased performance to put games in anoher drive and at the beggining of the drive.

My question is:
Will it make difference to make a partition at the beginning or at the end of this drive when it comes to gaming performance?
Will option three help me with this?

My cousin showed me one game in the same drive installed in the 1st of four partitions of a 500gb 7200rpm (the same i have) performing with 3-5 fps more than that game installed in the 4th partition of that same drive....

Any thoughts?

I dont know... any thoughts?, or maybe just a bug in the version installed in the 4th partition?

Answer:Will it make difference to make partition at beginning or end of HDD?

The only appreciable speed difference with OS drives is to upgrade to an SSD large enough to install OS and programs on, link to data on secondary HD via libraries.

Hello Please be patient I know enough about computers but not the terms or anything. I had vista at first then got a virus long story short my uncle removed everything then put XP back on. I dont really understand why its important for a drive to be a certain letter my hard drive H the removeanle disk is C Im working from home and was told I need my internet explorer and certain things on my C drive. First off what is the difference and is this possible Ive been up for hours looking but I am not sure and cant get a hold of my uncle. Please let me know what needs to be done. Thank you all in advance.

Answer:How to make my to make my C which says removeable disk to my H drive?

It's easy to change the removable drive's drive letter name.

Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Managment

Right-click the removable drive's graph and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths" and change the letter.

Do not change the drive letter of your boot drive. If you do, none of your programs will work, your computer may not even boot, and you'll be reinstalling XP all over again.

The time to deal with the boot drive not being C: was before/during the installation. Now it's too late, unless you want to reinstall. It's inconvenient and annoying, but almost everything will work just fine. I've read about some programs not working, but have never seen it first-hand. It's possible it never happens, and the people that are saying this are just repeating some kind of "urban myth".

If you HAVE to change the boot drive, you'll need to reinstall XP.

Hey guys I was gonna buy the Dell Inspiron Slim 530s and give it a new case (you might have read my earlier post regarding that) and, as i said, i was going to trick it out a bit. Here's what i wanted to replace in the system to make it silenter and cooler:

Better Graphics Card (I'm thinking the HIS IcePro Radeon X1650 256MB or better, now that my system has (or will have) a PCIex16 slot -yah!)

Answer:Mod Eye Candy: Will it make the cut or make me angry?

Ok first of all did you buy the dell yet? If you didn't I would suggest not to buy it.
Trust me if you are going to spend $700 on a Dell then do all the upgrades and stuff it would be better just to build a comp from scratch. For one thing as far as I know dell still has the BTX form motherboards and cases and for the most part you can only buy ATX form motherboards and cases. The BTX are pretty hard to find and there is not much varity. So basicly the motherboard isn't going to fit into anything you buy. You can build a comp that is going to be the same price as a dell and it is going to be WAY better. So if I where you do some reaserch on how to build a comp and go that rout instead of buying a dell then getting a case and all that other stuff. Trust me its not really all that hard I just built my fist a couple of months ago and its totally worth it.

Hi,
I heard that you can burn a DVD a similar way as with the VCD.
I have used my CD burner (and Nero) to put VHS on a musc CD, making it a VCD. I have a video card with a coaxial connector and hooked up my DVD player and was able to record and save the DVD clip, and it was captured as an AVI file. When I opened Nero and began the process, it asked if I wanted music, data, or some other form. I chose "other" and then it said it required the files to be AVI. I had that so I thought I was on my way. But, the process stops after that when trying to select the file to be burned, etc. Can this be accomplished using a DVD disc instead of CD?
or is what I heard totally wrong, and you have to have a DVD burner?
Thanks.

I always see job ads that say to send Resum?s as a .Doc format. I can't make one. The best I could do is Real Text Format (.Rtf) or just .Txt.

I am using Windows XP Home Edition OEM. My old computer would let me make microsoft works documents called .Wps or something like that.

So I don't know why .doc is so special. Does it have to do with windows professional? And is .Rtf good enough?

Answer:I can't make a .doc

I believe that you need to be using Microsoft Word to make .doc files.Notepad will open if .txt files and Wordpad opens .rtf files.I hate sending resumes in those formats but since I do not have Microsoft Word and most employers do not have what I do, WordPerfect, I usually end up sending them that way. I usually copy my resume into an email and also send the .txt or .rtf (am never sure which is the better choice) file as an attachment.Sites that let you upload a resume to their site have accepted mine in WordPerfect format (.wpd) though and it seems like they get it just fine.

Try using Nero 6. You can have a full working trial version by downloading this product.... click here for this product. You may also want to install some of the "powerpacks" that will help you create a DVD Menu and that crap alot easier

Answer:cant seem to make a vcd

Is your Autoplay set to open another app, maybe DeepBurner, when you insert a blank CD? Right-click your CD-R drive and select Properties. Click the Autoplay tab. Open the drop-down menu and select blank CD. Below that, Click the button next to "select an action to perform" then go to the window below and select "take no action". Click the Apply button and then the OK button and try to burn a VCD. If that doesn't work, wait for someone smarter than me to give you better advice.

sup people iam new to this website and really excited to do research i have 1 question?
i have microsoft office 2003 on a cd now u guys know that cds get scratch so what iam trying to do is transfer all the contents to a usb flashdrive so instead of me using a cd i could install of a flashdrive is this posible?

Answer:How to make a CD to USB

Not all CD's have the ability to be used on a USB Drive. If you try it you must make sure that you copy all files, including the hidden ones. But for something like this, you would be better off just making an ISO of the disk and storing that on your PC or Backup drive to burn when needed.

Question: Make an OS

I want to make an OS

I have programming experience with:
A little Visual C#, VB, PHP, Javascript, HTML, SQL, ASP, and CSS

Of course, none of those have anything to do with OS develompent

Can anybody recommend some books or websites for C, C++, Assembly, How OSes work, or OS Development

I understand that it will take practically forever to get up to that level but I still want to make a long term plan for myself

Thanks,

Why not just join an existing OS design project.

Go into Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall Logitech Desktop Messenger.

Next, go into the C:\Program Files\Logitech folder and delete the Desktop Messenger folder - if it's still there.

Restart your computer afterwards and then run a new scan with HijackThis and then post the new log here.

(This program is from Logitech and isn't needed.)

Hi people, on my stationary pc i am trying to make my ram fit but it wont, can you help? i will be alivable all day and here is a picture: https://ibb.co/iOxgZQ
I can't close the other yellow clamp on my 2nd ram( i din't insert the first one, the manifacturer did but i accidently pull the other out while cleaning and now i cant make it fit).
 

Answer:Cant make my ram fit.

Try locking in the problem side first and then the other. It seems they are both lined up in the same direction so I doubt you have the stick reversed. Be sure to get the first side in as correctly as possible and press until it locks and then do the other side. Sometimes it takes quite a bit of pressure to get it in, and also sometimes you have to manually push on the tab to make it lock in the sticks notch.

On Sat. I ran a tracert command to google.com. First hop after my router was a US DOD IP address. Checked with friend on same ISP and it is the same for him. Did some searching on this and found out that Rogers in Canada is also doing this. I am on Shaw and I run tracert every now and again and this is a very recent change. Guy in below url with username 'sbrook' claims it is because they need more IP address blocks so DOD allocated IP address blocks to Canadian ISPs to use.

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r26936058-My-privacy-is-being-breached-by-rogers

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/nanog/users/141048

http://www.zoklet.net/bbs/archive/index.php/t-248369.html

This person says it looks "fishy" to him and I have seen others who know a thing or two about networking say it looks fishy and the claim about running out of IP address blocks is a smoke screen because there are other networks they could get more blocks from besides US DOD.

http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread761697/pg1

I don't know what to think so I ask you.
 

Answer:What do you make of this?

Unless the DoD has also issued USB keys to all employees and implemented an "open door policy", I'd say it's just a smidge on this side of "impossible" that a DoD data-center would actually be the first hop on the Rogers network.

In other words - not damn likely, and if it were true, it would be the laziest "spying" in the history of internet surveillance. Really, would you believe the DoD/NSA could not afford a unassociated Static IP - to spy on it's closest neighbor no less.

I also like how your links are like a short waterslide into a pool of paranoid schizophrenic racists.... wouldn't be my first choice for source material.

I know that I have some spyware issues, namely "when u search" and "clearsearch" are wreaking havoc. I am experiencing a high number of pop ups which I never got before and everytime I search I get pop ups with related links. I also notice that websites are added to my IE favorites and also to my desktop. I have deleted the while u search and clearsearch programs twice but they keep coming back.

Here is where I am at now:
I ran a virus scan (norton) and that came up clear.
I ran CWShedder and that found and deleted 11 items.
I ran Ad-Aware which found over 300 objects which were deleted.
I ran spybot which found 30 items and fixed/deleted those.

Answer:How to make a pdf like this

PDFs are strange creatures. Are you wanting to make a PDF like this or get the text from the pdf?

to get the text...Your best bet would be to open it with Adobe Acrobat (not the reader). Another option is to print it then do an OCR scan to capture the text.

I thought I had dealt with it, but every few days AVG would find some new Trojan. That's when I came here. I followed the guide for removing malware, ran all the programs and have saved the logs. Some malware was found. I just want to make sure it's all gone before I toggle system restore as per your instructions, so I've attached the logs.

I am assuming that your mouse and keyboard are USB? Not ps2.
Try accessing the BIOS so that you can change your boot sequence to boot from USB. Most all current BIOS firmware is furnished with USB support and 'should' allow basic functionality. If you're formatting from USB I am also assuming that the USB is home to your Windows 8 install? IF you can access BIOS, set to boot from USB, and boot from the USB drive to complete your Win 8 install. Alternately, if you have the Windows 7 system/recovery disk, you can always boot from it and restore the machine to either try again or at least have Win 7 to work with...

Hi, I recently downloaded a copy of a DVD(legally) and it came in a folder with these files in it:

Code:
VIDEO_TS.BUP
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_02_0.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_02_0.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB
VTS_01_0.VOB
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_02_0.VOB
VTS_02_1.VOB

I don't want to burn it but rather make an ISO, mount it and watch it. What do I do with these files? Cause when I pop in a dvd and explore it, it usually has folders but this is just one folder with these files in it. What do I do?
 

Answer:What do I make this with?

You should be able to just click on the VIDEO_TS.IFO file to play the DVD. No creating and mounting of ISO's needed.

If you want an ISO:

hi, i own a game called Iron Storm. i have to uninstall and install this game a lot and i would like to know how i could take the 2 cds and make them into 1 dvd. it is a 2002 game. this would make it much easier for me to install the game, and also, i like learning new things and i've seen this done with windows XP MCE so i know its possible and i want to know how it is done.i assumed that putting all of the files into one folder wouldn't work, although i havent actually tried this. i've searched the net for a tutorial but couldnt find anything also, i would like to know how i could integrate the one patch for the game into the DVD after it is made so that every time i have to install the game i wouldnt have to install the patch. for this part i have tried a few things. in "Run" i used certain commands using /integrate using the patch name first then the target name, but for the target i am not exactly sure what to do. no matter what target i use in the folder where i copied the cd to my hard drive it extracts itself to a temp then a message pops up that shows me command line parameters :S such as /UM<url to MSI package> yet once this is done there is still no change in any of the files. any help would be appreciated. thanks
 

Answer:how to make 2 cds into 1 dvd?

Why do you think that Iron Storm was made by Microsoft? And even if it was a MS game, why do you think that they would use the same setup mechanisms for their operating systems and applications?

Anyway, this question has been asked before and basically, it all boils down to the exact installer used by the game and whether you an modify the installation routines.

Since you are asking this question here, maybe you should just forget about making a single DVD and use a virtual DVD-ROM drive and CD image files instead?

Hi Major Geeks!

I need you guys to come to the rescue again as you always do! Tim helped me recently on a machine and it was a quick and successful experience. Thank you very much!

This time I'm working on my church's computer. I'm really struggling to with this one. I'm trying to make it through the read me and run me first thread but I cannot even get through that one. The computer won't let me. I can't do a normal startup b/c everything has the computer so bogged down that I can't do anything!!! I try running the tools to clean it and either the browser prohibits me from going to the appropriate website to get the tools or like SuperAntiSpyware, I got it downloaded and installed, but I go to run the scan and after it starts the computer shuts the program down. I need help please.

I'm usually easy to deal with doing all the prereqs etc... but this time I am not getting very far with them. Where should I start?? Thanks guys!!
 

Answer:Can't even make it through RUN ME FIRST

Try using safe mode when needed instead of normal mode to get the scans run and we'll see what gives. Let me know how it's going.

This is a stupid question and I am expecting stupid answers. But I am going to throw it out there anyway cause I am getting pissed off at the limitations of XP's GUI.

Is there any way to make XP's GUI look and operate like the Linux Graphical Desktop KDE? Mostly what I want here is push-button hidding pannels, custom menus, multiple virtual desktops and everything in an easy to get to place.

And before someone suggests just installing linux on this box, it already is. I dual boot. Many things I still have to use windows for and while I am stuck in this POS OS I might as well try and ease the pain a little.

Refer to the attached TXT file. It has the appropriate change. So you can just take the file and do a save as to put in HTML extension.

In your file, you have:
Code:
</html></td>
<td width="5" bgcolor="#000080" bordercolor="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;</td>
<td width="150" bordercolor="#FFFFFF">

<div align="justify"
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<title>Untitled Document</title>

It should just have the following (change in bold and red text below; change is the addition of setting the vertical align in that cell to be top; prior, it did not have a vertical align set):
Code:

Answer:Need to make sure

AGP slot is usually right up under the processor and sometimes a dark color. The slots at the bottom of the board, sometimes white and where you would put in a 56k modem are PCI slots. What motherboard do you have? Maybe we can look it up online and verify the slots.

Hey plaz. Here's a couple of things to try:

Web pages that is. I try to print a webpage but the right edges of the print disappear into the margin. I have tried scaling, fit to page, nothing works. If I use landscape instead of portrait the entire page fits but then the verticle space is lost and the result is more paper use.

How can I get the pages to fit?
 

Answer:How do you make them fit?

WEB pages are not ment to be printed. Some developers build PRINTER FRIENDLY pages so you can print off the information.

I would go tto the page I want go to the menu item EDIT, click on SELECT ALL, click on COPY, open Word or another word processor, menu item EDIT, select PASTE and then print your page. The copy aqnd paste will get rid of most of the transparent characters.

Welcome to the Malware Removal Forum.

Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Pleases follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.
After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
