Preferred Solution: On a lighter note........

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.)

Hello folks, simple question here,
I have one note 2007 installed on my pc and want to just make a small tweak to it that is a nuicannce in my opinion more than an atcual problem. What i want to do is when onenote closes (meaning the main application) i want to have its tray application close itself. Trust me, it is useful and i have been reviewing this application and like it for starting college but find it annoying how i have the tray application open even when the program is closed. If someone could tell me how to do this it would be appreciated. And i do know about disabling the icon but i dont want to do that as the tray application i find has plenty of usefull features.

Answer:Close the one note tray icon automatically when one note is closed

By the way I tried many Linux distros, but none worked well enough due to graphic card issue, SIS generally is not supported in Linux.

Hello there

I make format for my computer and now I need a light and strong internet security for my pc
The internet security must be light and not very strong
What the best




there are no problems from the active and serial

Answer:what is the Lighter internet security

All the ones you have listed are considered 'light and strong'. Just remember, RAM usage does not determine the lightness of a product. If you have an older CPU, you may want to disable scheduled scanning from avast!, Comodo, ESET and Norton (if possible).

Comodo is the most feature-rich suite that you get for FREE. Since version 6, they have increased the amount of processes, which some don't like. It also comes with a lot of bloatware (Dragon, GeekBuddy, Silverlight). So while it allows the product to function better, choosing to not install them, does not affect PC Protection. Tips: GeekBuddy is not required for malware removal upon detection.

ESET is one of the better Antivirus without bloatware, but people complain of it's higher than average RAM usage, but please see what I said before about this.

Avast works for some and not so well for others. Also comes with a lot of bloatware, that does not increase PC security and new components aren't always security-related. Note: During and after (reboot) installation, you'll get prompted to install either Google Chrome and Google Toolbar, these are are not required.

Norton have much improved over the past 5 years, one of the better paid products. Not used the latest, 2014 version. Norton comes with a toolbar with a Password Manager and Web Advisor, that may or not be compatible with the latest versions of Firefox (always had these issues), should work with Chrome and IE9+ if you have Enhanced P...

Hello all, wish all of you have a nice day.
My story: I need a virtualization software to do my Lab at school. I am using VMware WorkStation 11. I installed 4 Virtual Machines on my computer (Intel Core i5 4200U, 8GB RAM DDR3L). I feel some lag on my system when I turn on 4 VMs at the same time (no additional software running except Foxit Reader). If I install 4 VMs by using VirtualBox 4.3, Does my computer runs lighter on resource usage? Do I need to change to VirtualBox?
Thanks all!

Answer:Which is lighter? WMware 11 or VirtualBox 4.3

Well it depends to the RAM assigned consumption configuration (Virtualbox), if its 1GB for each VM then that should not cause any slowdowns. My laptop specification is AMD A8 with 8GB DDR3 I can manage to run two VM (assigned 2GB) with no slowdowns.

The question is in the title. What makes the weight difference between S and not-S T410?

Answer:How is T410s so much lighter than T410?

A different internal design allowed them to reduce the thickness. Different motheboard layout, redesigned cooling system, revised port layout, etc. It is possible to make notebooks very thin, but the processes and parts used to reduce thickness cost more. Sorry I can't really be more specific, there's no "one" thing that was done.

I've tried Googling this problem and couldn't find anything that described it. For a long time now, probably over two years, toward the top of my laptop's screen (a Pavilion dv6), the pixels will display as lighter than they are suppost to. It doesn't seem that they are stuck pixels, as they are not always like this. When I initially turn on my laptop this spot appears normal, but if I leave the window I'm on to something that has a light color (white, yellow, light green, etc.), and then view a different color, these spots then appear as a lighter version of the color I'm currently viewing, with a couple pixels that look like stuck pixels in a few spots. If I then switch to a window/video where the top of the screen displays a dark color, and keep it on that for a while, these spots will display normally yet again. Because of this I always try to keep my laptop's wallpaper to ones that are darker so I do not have discolored pixels on the top of my screen when I go afk for a longer period of time (like maybe 20+ minutes). This happens across the entire length of the screen, but appears more prominately in some areas than it does others. These areas are horizontal and are not very tall (maybe 5 or so pixels), and I'd say they occur maybe 15 - 20 pixels down my 1366 x 768 screen. About where the top of favicons for websites appear when I'm on Google Chome. The most affected spot would be where the first tab's favicon appears, in this spot if I leave a light ... Read more

I have a license for both and am thinking to install Windows 8.1 again on my laptop.

Windows 7 Pro did offer me higher benchmarks, but I don't know, the laptop felt snappier in Windows 8.1 for some reason.

My laptop originally came with Windows 8.1 single Language

now before I format, shall I install Windows 8.1 Single Language that came with my laptop or my own copy of 8.1 Pro?

Is Pro heavier by any chance because it has Bitlocker, the ability to connect to a Workgroup, Hard Drive encryption, etc?

If the performance is the same then I'll install 8.1 Pro but if you think Single Language is lighter, then I'll stick to that

please advice

Answer:Which is lighter, Windows 8.1 Single Language or Pro?

Personally, I don't see a difference between the two (both are Pro versions) except that you have only one language on the OEM version.

There are three versions of Windows 8/8.1; Core (mostly for consumers); Pro and Enterprise (mostly for multiple licenses). You will find comparisons between these versions here: Compare Windows 8.1 Editions

If your system specs are correct, the OEM OS on your laptop is already Windows 8.1 Pro. No need to format and reinstall unless you have a specific need for multiple languages. Further, I'm pretty sure that, since the product key to Windows 8.1 Pro is embedded in your BIOS/UEFI, reinstallation will pick up that key for you and hopefully, you won't have to use your other key.

Also, although you didn't ask the question, if you format/write over your OEM version of Windows and you use the key with your multiple language version of Windows 8.1, you cannot use the OEM version from the laptop on another computer; thus, one license lost. My advice would be that unless you have a need for multiple languages, leave things as they are.

Hello. The 65W charger is only supplied with the non quad core Intel Graphics only models. Your machine has both an i7 quad core processor and the dual Intel/nVidia GPU, and thus it cannot use it. The only adapter compatible for your machine is the 135W, but you can try the 90W adapter while traveling. Cheers!

A few weeks ago, having been given the advice to use canned air for cleaning the insides of my box I went to the computer hardware store I frequent and bought one. Heck of an expense, but nothing's too good for my machine. When I was using it, I noticed the can became very cold after a while. Also, some sort of sedimentation appeared on the sensitive parts I had been cleaning. It was moist - like frost - when I touched it. I looked at the can. It claimed to contain a butane-propane mixture..... now, it DID say it was intended for cleaning sensitive electronic parts, but I wonder.... any surface this mixture hit would get very cold, and I think condensation may have formed on it later - water.... plus, while it was removing most of the accumulated dust, some was made to stick to the surface, mixed with that sediment, which would then dry up pretty quickly leaving a thin, caked film of dust behind.

After cleaning I had problems with my video card - the screen looked jumbled during loading, then it went blank, the little LED light on it indicating there was no signal. I took the card out of its socket and put it back in again, waited awhile (thinking the scary thought it may need to dry up a bit), then turned the computer on, and everything was OK.

So, I'm a little worried (corrosion?) and unsure of whether I used the right product for cleaning the dust out of my computer. I know you can also get cans of simple, compressed air.... why use a lighter-fluid mixture... Read more

Hello everyone!

I have a unique problem, I found a few random posts about it but each one had no replies for support.

After installing the recent fall update for the Creators Update on October 17, my start menu has automatically changed to a very light shade of the taskbar color.

I understand it's naturally lighter, but mine has turned extremely light grey compared to the dark taskbar. Messing around with all the colors and themes does nothing. Changing my taskbar color will then change my start menu the same but it will turn the color to a very very light shade of the taskbar.

It's very strange indeed. Did the creators update naturally lighten up the start menu color? Or is there anyways to manually edit the start menu color only to get close to the same shade as the taskbar? I could try posting screen shots, because normal taskbars are usually blackish while the start menu is very similar, yet mine is now extremely light grey.

Hi all !

Just want to share a successful reflow using cigarette lighter. I used to do oven reflows before, it gave my old geForce 9700 almost 3 years of life extension.. until it had its fourth reflow, of which I mis-set the oven temp and it went down in a blaze of glory.

Maybe this will help those with limited resources like me; after all, a heat gun is not that cheap, and if you're not an electronics technician, it's not a tool that you use daily.

Recently I've been having random atikmpag.sys 0x116 and/or 0x119 BSOD's in my laptop, a (bought used) Compaq CQ42-175TX (Core i5 430M, ATi Mobility Radeon HD5430). Culprit seems to be the VRAM (lots of errors during Video Memory Test [HOME PAGE OF MISHA CHERKES]).

It started only rarely, 1-2x per month, but in the last weeks it became almost everyday. So I decided to do a reflow. After a few google searches, I stumble upon a tip (sorry forgot the original link, but really, BIG thanks to that tip's original poster) which said to test your reflowing method with a solder wire first.

So I went and tried first using hair dryer. Turns out hair dryer is a no-no. The solder simply won't melt. Or maybe it's because it was only a 1000W hair dryer, I don't know though.

So I googled again, and I found several people mentioning cigarette lighters. So I tried one to a solder wire, ... turns out it melts in a mere 2 seconds (yellow part of the flame) and 3 seconds (blue part of the flame) !

After numerous Windows 8 installations going back and forth between 7 and 8 I've finally decided to stay with Windows 8.1 Pro (x86). It feels lighter on the resources and even the gaming performance seems to have increased in relation to Windows 7 Ultimate.

It seems to me like W8.1 is a lot lighter on its feet than its predecessor despite all the hype about the new Metro UI. Once I got used to it, it became a more modern/practical OS to me, and above all significantly lighter/faster than Windows 7 Ultimate (x86).

All I needed were two apps and my 8.1 is just like 7 in the interface department. When I am inclined to use some of the nifty UI aspects of 8.1 I can do so with ease.
I find 8.1 to be the fastest OS Ive used in the past 12 years. I love it. I also find it extremely stable, maybe I'm just lucky.
What annoyances I do find., there is an answer for in here. I wouldn't go back for quids. I will add that I am a very hard man to please, stubborn and anal.

This problem occurred in the middle of me using it so it wasn't a problem wile starting up.My problem is half of the screen is lighter color saturation than the other half. the screen isnt in 2 equal halves the lighter half is smaller but the problem is irritating. The weird part is while on black there is no difference at all and you cannot tell the problem is there but the second its not black or white its extremely noticeable. ive tried restarting updating some things but i dont know what to do.

Question: one note

hi, i have downloaded some of the templates (stationaries) for one note that i don't like and would like to delete. How do I do that?


Answer:one note

Do you have their full name? If so, navigate to that folder, select the file and press your Delete key. Otherwise, I imagine you can go to File | New.., navigate to your templates, right click on your template and select Delete.

Sorry if I'm in the wrong section. (mods please move if needed)

My mother wants to take notes (class she's taking) on her xps 12 using a stylus. She'll be using a capacitive stylus too, so support for that would be a must.

We'd prefer free too but willing to look into paid versions. Any recommendations that doesn't require "cloud" saves is also a must.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: or is it possible to use the stylus on word 2010? If so how do I go about it?

Question: Note to Self


I made a note to myself yesterday to sort out my computer. At time it is tortue to operate this machine. Just the pauses and inconsistency of performance paticularly regarding internet surfing.

Is there any help with using Combofix?

I Think this may help, as my computer bleeps very regularly! I've been putting up with it for a long time.

The normal programs I use are

Super Anti Spyware
Malware Bytes Anti malware
AVG PC Tune Up - 2011
Uniblue - Speed up my PC - 2009

Currently running Comodo Security Suite for Firewall, virus, and spyware protection.

Operating System - Windows XP
Service Pack 2
32 bit
1.67 GHz, 256MB RAM



Answer:Note to Self

You are seriously under - memory. Only 256Mb means that there is a lot of swapping to the hard drive going on. I'd bet the hard drive activity light stay pretty much on.

I would suggest going to at least 1Gb of memory. If you can post the make and model I might be able to be of more help. If it is a no name brand then what make and model of motherboard please.

1.6Ghz can run OK with enough memory.

Also you should be running SP3. Once the memory is upgraded and it is running OK then that should be the next step.

Have you installed a toolbar or something? Some get installed when you installed other software. Also, what browser do you use? And does "" open at startup of the browser?
The pages opened on startup can be easily edited:
1. Go to the settings of your Internet-Browser. Try to find the place where you can select which pages will be opened on startup.
2. Change it.
3. Done! is also not a used domain right now. As you may see; the page tries to sell you the domain. This means that the domain is registered, but not used currently.

Question: One Note

I know OneNote 2k7 used to have a "Print To Onenote" plugin, and i cant for the life of me find this. I've been in need of pulling in PDF's to some of my notes and i cannot figure it out.

Also, how does Onenote react if i move the notebook directory? I want to move it to my dropbox folder (other stuff in dropbox so changing that is a no-go), so i have easy access to my notes on my desktop.

Answer:One Note

When you install OneNote there should also be a OneNote printer driver and you simply print to that. Also a notebook directory can be anywhere, just move the notebook directory to where you want and open it from within OneNote and it should become a tab on the left. In windows 7 I simply pin OneNote tee the tank bar for quick access.

Question: A net for a note

Yes, I, the big shot here, have a question for you. :P

Let's start out by saying, my netbook; light, superb battery life, enough "umph" to run the basics.

The thing that bugs me about it is; The screen being only 10.1", a little small for viewing webpages; It's not like "sloooow", just want it a little bit faster, higher than max 2GB RAM and Atom processor.

I currently run Ubuntu on it, yet it is still a bit slow. As much as I have learned to like Ubuntu, it really isn't working on here. Works great with my HDPC, EeeBox EB1006HB, though.

Can I, perhaps, sell my Eee 1005HA netbook, for ~$100, and give ways some of the money for a new one?

This is what I'm looking for:

At least a 15" LCD
Intel i3/AMD equivalent
Any capacity HDD/SSD
As long as the battery lasts more than 1 hour, I'm happy.
Windows 7 Home Premium is fine.
I think everything else is standard.

Price I'm looking for is max $500. This is not a gaming laptop, a simple on-the-go PC.

Please stay in Newegg.

Also do i need voice recognition software in addition to this and if so what recommendations would anyone have.

I have a laptop with Windows XP media edition so what type of microphone would be good to get that would be good for voice recognition software. I would like something small and compact so it wouldn't draw attention to the instructor.

My PC was running flawlessly for about two months now, and then yesterday I came back to find my computer off. I turned it back on and when it got to the desktop, no task bar items started, and all of the .ink shortcuts on my desktop wouldn't display icons, just the broken icon icon, if you know what I mean. Anywho, when I went to start any program, it would either ask to use the web service to find what to open the exe in, or just open it notepad. Why note pad works and no other exe does, I have no clue. Any ideas?

Answer:Exe's open in note pad?!?!

Right click on the EXE and LNK file association patches on this site, download them to the desktiop and fully unzip them (they will have green .reg icons).

Then double click them to merge them to the registry and see if they resolve some of these problems.

If you get an error, note it exactly. I'ts possible the registry association may be corrupted as well. If it is follow the pages instructions on running regedit and use File > Import to import the .reg files.

Feel the squeeze ladies and gentleman, feel the squeeze.

Time is Running Out for Win 2K users.


Full, free support for Windows 2000 officially ends on June 30th, 2005. After that deadline, the both client and server versions of Windows 2000 will go into the "extended" support cycle, where they will charge for it.

Last year, Microsoft announced that there would be a security-centered update rollup instead of releasing Service Pack 5. The rollup is going to require Service Pack 4 as a prerequisite. The update is due in mid-2005, but so far there has been no news on its progress.

Under the Microsoft's terms of support, they will only provide security-related patches during the product's extended support cycle. Non-security fixes are only available with a hot-fix agreement plan. Anyone without this service will not have access to these updates.

Windows 2000 is still the operating system of choice for many people and businesses. As this product moves into its extended support cycle, Microsoft is urging customers to migrate to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

I have today posted this note of complaint to Oftel click hereI would recommend everyone who has encountered this to post a similar complaint. I don't yet know if they have any jurisdiction, but a large enough volume of complaints may make them take some notice anyway. ------------------------------------------------- AOL have instituted a "SPAM" blocking regime, which routinely blocks legitimate and legal non-spam emails from private individuals and businesse to AOL users. Their policy/technology blocks all emails from specific ISPs when inuse - not merely those shown to be containing "SPAM". I know this to have been applied to all emails from Wanadoo Spain at one time - and have reprots that it has been applied to other ISPs, including UK based ones. I feel this is unwarranted and illegal interference with legitimate communications traffic, and would like to see them told to caese this policy and fix their technology. -------------------------------------------------

Just a note for those who have been having trouble posting headers in C stuff.
If you simply enclose them with the 'less than' and 'greater than' characters from the keyboard the parser here will conclude that they are tags and the contents will not be visible.

So to get something like
#include &lt;conio.h&gt;
you need to type
#include &amp;lt;conio.h>
to prevent this (I also tend to do the closing bracket (greater than) as &amp;gt;
(Don't leave out the semicolon )
