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.)

Other storage in my MicroSD was bigger than my apps. but other storage on my phone still 0, so was on temporary files. it's lumia denim bug? or what?

Answer:How to delete other storage in microSD storage, because "other" storage in Phone can be 0?

The thing with the microSD card is that apart from the apps, you can actually take full control of the data management there.
So, you can either format the thing or manage it from the Files app.

(Dell XPS 8500, 24GB, 1GB mSata system drive, two Toshiba USB3.0 attached hard drives)
I have a storage space set up on my Windows 1607 primary computer. (Storage Spaces is a feature of Windows 8.1 and later and Server 2012 and later.) It is set up with a normal pair of large capacity hard drives and is in two-way mirrored configuration, formatted ReFS. I see the "reduced resiliency warning" but both drives are marked as "OK." What is the meaning of the "reduced resiliency" warning and what is required to remove it"? I get the same warning with a similar storage space configuration on my test box, the only difference being that it is formatted NTFS.

Hi Everyone,
I have setup a storage space in my windows 8.1 machine and I've got a much of disks that I added to the server, and then created the "pool". What I noticed is that each disk say's attached via SATA, but one of them say's from RAID.
I'm not sure why the difference.

I am owner of my Dell INSPIRON N5010 , but i m not from USA , my computer hanged so my friend just restored its BIOS setting( i am not sure if these are called BIOS, but it happened as: he restarted Laptop, pressed F12 and there he restored settings then when it restarted there appeared a black screen in middle of which there is a blue box saying "Insert system password" Now i tried looking over internet all over the place I found out a few reasonable solutions 1- remove a battery with motherboard , but for that you need an expert for which my laptop might have to opened which i prefer not to get opened 2- second provide your service tag(S/N) on but that asks for $35 which i think is just too much! Now I want if the second one can be done for free or anyother viable solution thank you

Hi Guys,
I have faced some issues with Windows 8.1 demo. So i have done a hard reset on my mobile.
I was happy that the mobile came alive and was running cool but then i found that the contacts from my outlook were not copied to the phone as well i was not able to add email accounts to my phone except microsoft's outlook which was enabled during the time of fresh startup. so i tried a lot juggling around it then finally gave up and decided to reset the mobile again.
So here i confronted the issue. I don't see "reset your phone" option under Setting >> about.
SO i saw some other option called "update demo content". i dont know what it is, but just i clicked on it and the phone started updating some stuff and then i came to know that its a retailer's package which make your phone one like we see in the store... running automatic videos and stuff.
i'm totally annoyed by this.. guys please help me ... i'm just freeked out. :(

:( How did you perform the hard reset ? and where did you get that device / software from ?
Google 'Nokia Lumia 820 Service manual' ...
at the very end of the manual, there is a key combination to perform a hard reset. It'll wipe EVERYTHING & start fresh (probably WinPhone 8.1, though) else use NSU to fallback to WinPhone 8.0.

Answer:After Reset, Cannot get past "Link your phone and PC"

Make sure you do not have any external USB Mass Storage drives attached to your computer, like your Phone.
You can download Belarc Advisor or Magical Key finder to view your Windows Product key.
Your product key should be installed in the Bios and you should not need to input it. if you download the Windows 10 ISO 1709 and burn it to a USB Flash drive with Microsoft Media Creation tool or Rufus, in my signature. You can boot from that, choose your Language and choose Repair Your Computer. If that still fails. then you can do a Reinstall.

Hi all,

Sorry to repeat a question I see a lot of instances of, but none of those seem to be addressing my problem correctly.

I have not done anything new to my computer in recent days, so this problem has caught me off guard (I see most instances of this problem come after upgrading to Windows 7, I have had Win 7 installed for a while now).

Here is a summary of my problem:
1) My computer recently got stuck on the "Starting Windows Screen." So I manually held the power button to reboot.
2) On reboot, it said there was a need to run a startup repair, which I did. Everything checked fine, except for the last one which said "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted," which it claimed to have successfully fixed.
3) After rebooting from repair, the system gets stuck on "Starting Windows Screen" for a good 10-15 minutes, after which it runs a registry check. After it completes that I get hopeful -- but the screen then gets stuck on an all black screen with just the mouse cursor and nothing more.
4) Additional note: Attempting to start the computer on "safe mode" leads safe mode startup to become stalled on "DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.SYS"
5) The lastest attempt to repair yielded this message: "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

Answer:Stuck on "Starting Windows", Repair Shows "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted"

Hi Stan, Hopefully I can help you out....or at least lead you in the right direction. From my experience, the symptoms you are suggesting sound like perhaps a dying Hard drive.

1. Do you have the windows 7 boot disks that came with your computer or when you bought the Operating System? If so, you could try and insert one of those and boot from it, and attempt to repair the installation. (this won't affect your data, only the windows system files).

2. If that doesn't fix it, you could try a fresh reinstall of windows 7, and see if that works.

3. If neither of those work, its likely that because of the fact that when windows is repairing itself, it is generally putting copies of its system files in the same physical location on your disk. Because your disk is obviously not completely dead, ie....its still loading to the windows 7 startup screen, its just copying files to the bad sectors on your hard drive and gets stuck when loading. This is especially my guess because you said Safe mode is having same problems, even after attempting to repair. In the past, I've tried and salvage a disk by reformatting it and only leaving on partitions which do not contain the bad clusters. This takes some time, and some guess work.....and really this is only a "bandaid" fix because once the disk has bad clusters, its only a matter of time before these things give out. You wouldn't want to trust your important data on it anyways....

I hope this leads you in ... Read more

Not a major issue, of course, purely cosmetic, but still a minor annoyance none-the-less:

I have a number of card reader drives that I never use (haven't even removed that plastic cover tape from them to help keep the dust out) that show when viewing the "Computer" window that displays drives. Is there any way to hide specific unused drivers from this view? Not remove drive entirely, of course, I may need to use one in the future, but just to hide them so they aren't visible, until I may chose to make them visible again?

Thanks as always,


Answer:Hiding unused "removable storage" devices from "Computer" folder

Hello Russell,

You could check Hide empty drives in the Computer folder in Folder Options to have them stay hidden until you insert a card. When a card is inserted, the drive will display in Computer.

I realized there was a problem when I tried to uninstall some programs and was not able to make a system restore point. I opened system restore and saw that the last restore point was 2 months ago. I tried to make a restore point and I got the message that there was insufficient storage (it was set to 15% of a 465 hard drive with 92 used). I turned off System Restore,turned it on again and the same error when I tried to make a sys. restore point. I could live without it because I have some backup devices but would like to fix this if I could. Any ideas appreciated. (I have the W7 Home Edition, 64 bit).

Answer:File Explorer shows "Working on it..." after Windows 10 upgrade

This appears to be a bug some (not all) are experiencing related to the upgrade. Fortunately I don't..
I guess this is one where MS is 'working on it' - comments suggest updates in Sept.

You do have 10 days to roll back, and if you use Win 10 Pro, you can defer the upgrade.

Otherwise you may wish to use other means of blocking updates.

Meanwhile feel free to try checking for a 3rd party program conflict:
- does it happen in Safe Mode?
- after a clean boot?
- if you disable context menu entries using Shellexview (free) - hide all MS entries, disable all others, noting the 32 bit option which reveals more.

Thus you may be able to solve this.

Hello sattyaji, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It may still be showing if the system image was created as part of a Windows backup. Using the tutorial below to reset Windows Backup should clear it for you, but you will need to set up your backup again afterwards.

I just got a new Hewlett Packard computer with Windows XP. The CD drive is a combo CD reader, writer and DVD. The main reason I need it is to backup my many documents, database programs (RootsMagic family history, Quicken, etc.), photographs and drawings.

What I need is to be able to use a CD-RW as a giant floppy - to add, delete, copy, edit and move files, just as I do on my regular floppies, using "drag & drop" through Windows Explorer, or "save as...".

Hey, I got my computer last September and it has been working perfectly up until last night when I was watching BBC iPlayer and suddenly it froze, Firefox Crashed, then it froze again and everything went black. Now whenever I try to boot up I get a BSOD saying that it failed to reset the display adapter. I can boot into safe mode and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers for my graphics cards.

I was building a new array, using drives formatted with larger cluster sizes to get over the 15.8TB drive limit.
Since you can't 'remove' a drive in the GUI and have everything rebalance, I physically removed the drive while powered down.  Upon rebooting, Storage Spaces said there was a missing drive and I clicked "Remove" so that the repair work would
start (plenty of room since I'd just moved 7TB of data to the new array).

Then disaster hit.  One of my 1TB drives failed hours into the Repair process.
It appears the drive has failed - powers up, spins up but no computer can see it and it doesn't show up in the Disk Management tool.  I may have lost irreplaceable pictures and home movies.  I'd be using mirroring for just this reason.
HOWEVER - the 4TB drive I removed?  Haven't written a thing to it or used it in any way.  When I spin it back up, I get that Disk 14 is Healthy with "Storage Spaces Protected Partition".  Is there ANY way I can "re-attach"
this disk to the array to make up for whatever was on the 50% of the 1TB drive that was mirrored on the 4TB drive?  Only files who were on those two disks and no others would be affected and those are the ones I'm worried about.
Thanks in advance.

I open up Phone companion on my Win 10 pc and cannot sync my photos or copy them to my computer. I get a message that says it cannot locate my phone. However, it is listed in my device manager, devices & printers, and even "This PC" it is listed.
If I try to do the normal copy method of opening the folder, my computer can see a few files(86) and then stops finding any more. When I attempt to copy the folder directly to computer, I get an error message. If I try to CTRL+A and copy to computer, I get 1-2 files and it "freezes" on the copy dialog.
Simply put, WTF do I have to do to take the files off my phone and put onto my computer?

Answer:Why does my 950 not allow my to sync with "Phone Companion" or allow me to copy from SD card?

im running windows 7 ultimate and using windows phone app but i suggest you check your sync settings. i dont understand why its not allowing you to copy and paste directly. the simplest way would be to go into "My Computer" and select windows phone right click open the browse through. if all else fails remove your micro sd from your device and use a card reader should be slower that the cards usual performance but its effective.

My notebook is set to the recommended screen resolution, under display settings that allows you to change the text size indepdenent of the screen resolution, I was expecting to see 3 radio buttons (as per the windows 7 tutorial) but I can see only "Small" and "medium". I haven't played around with different screen resolutions to see if it has any effect.

I wonder if it needs some driver update or related to my screen resolution or whatever? Thanks.

Answer:display settings only shows "Small" & "Medium"

I really don't know, but the Nvidia driver automatically makes some adjustments, depending on what it is installed on. I suspect that they feel no one would want the large text on a small display.

Hi All,

Thanks in advance for any help.

I purchased and installed an Iomega 34766 NAS yesterday. I have three machines that run Windows 7 (2 - Ulitmate 32bit & 64bit; 1 - Professional 32bit) and a Windows xp machine.

I am having trouble getting the Windows 7 Professional 32bit machine to show the NAS as a computer under the network folder. It will show the NAS as a Media Device and Other device. I can access the device as a media device, but when I click other device, it opens a IE browser and errors out. I have not been able to map the device in windows explorer either. This NAS has a print server built in and it will not show the printer either.

My other two Windows 7 Ultimate 32 & 64 bit (Desktop-Windows & HTPC) machines work just fine and the NAS shows under the computer and media device and does not show as other device. The printer pluged in the NAS works like a charm.

The primary computer that I need to work is the windows 7 professional version (LPC-PC) thats not working.

I posted a screen shot of what I am looking at from the computer that does not work and one of the machines that is working.

As a side note, LPC-PC is my laptop and it is the machine that is not working. Desktop-Windows and HTPC are the two machines that it is working just fine on.

I am able to connect to LPC-PC from Desktop-Windows; however I can not connect to Desktop-Windows from LPC-PC.

I recently built a new computer and installed Windows 10 Pro Creators Update (version 1703) and just noticed that I have never had icons for Phone or Cortana in my Settings. These settings are also not available in the search bar within Settings. See attached screenshots below.

Since I've heard of issues like this resulting from pirated software, I'd like to clarify that I purchased and downloaded the OS directly from Microsoft and installed it onto a brand new SSD and have had no issues with the machine once I got the overclock stable.

Thanks in advance for any and all tips!

Answer:No icons for "Phone" or "Cortana" in Windows settings

If you like you can update to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using either Windows Update or Windows 10 Media Creation Tool this will resolve your problem.

(Please tell me if I'm in the wrong area of this board)

But a friend living hundreds of miles away uses XP and ran an "unasked for" Pop-Up utility that said he had computer problems because of malware or spyware some unnamed entity had installed on his computer. Unfortunately he doesn't remember the name of the "so called spyware detector/remover", but he fell for the "Warning" and ran the program to "check" his system.

Of course, as most those unrequested detect/remover programs found many "so called serious" problems. But would Not "fix/clean them" unless he payed for the program.

From THAT point on, his CD-ROM wouldn't work(which it had dependably always before)....the Device Manager that it "is there" and what make/model it is....and also says that it is enabled and working properly(but it isn't working, as before). And the Icon disappeared from from the My Computer folder. I guess that program somehow did something to it, in order to force people to pay for the program to "fix it" and othe so-called problems!

Has anybody ever heard of this?
Can you help me get his CD-ROM accessable and working dependably as before? Please??

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hey everyone, I just got a new Sony SDM-HS75 17" LCD monitor to replace an old 15" CRT for christmas...and i went to set it up tonight and when i did and turned my computer on it showed the bios and the windows XP loading but after it loaded it would go black and show the "No Input Signal" box on the screen and then go into sleep mode soon there after. I rebooted but the same thing happened... i know its not the computer because the CRT monitor has been working fine on it for almost a year now and still is working, but i'm baffled to as to what the problem is... followed the manuals troubleshooting instructions and installed the drivers and set the monitor setting to that of my new monitor, but that didnt work...also tried switching it into "Plug and Play" as the monitor setting but that didnt work either... can anyone please offer me some advice as to how to get this working? any and all help is appreciated... Thank you - Justin

Answer:New Monitor Shows Boot Up But Then Shows "no Input Signal"

Ii's probably this. Boot into safe mode (tap F8 on boot up), and set the resolution to 60-65Hz. Then reboot as usual. The new monitor probably cant handle the res it is set at now.

If that doesn't work, come back.

Hey folks,

My first post on here but I'm in serious trouble. I got a "new" (to me anyway) desktop running XP today and found the audio hardware wasn't working. So I pillaged an old machine for its sound card, and inserted that onto the motherboard. Also connected the Aux and CD lines to the top of the daughterboard.

Since then, to my horror, the machine has failed to boot. All plugged in, keyboard working, screen on and being used on another box for this very post. All I get now is the usual chirps from the internal soundcard followed by a few very low notes, definitely depressing so I guess they're suggesting something's failed. There's no further action from the CPU, the fan still works, but there is no screen output whatever.

Have I fried the motherboard without realising?!

Also, ironically, the last failure tone was delivered by my speakers through the originally non-responsive audio hardware!

I'd love a bit of help on this one, because my knowledge of computers' insidey bits is pretty poor.

Many thanks,

Hi all,

I'm puzzling this one. In the folder options when I choose 'view' the radio button to show the hidden files is missing. I've already checked the registry at the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced/Hidden

and everything seems ok (value for 'Type' is 'group' etc.). Using the XP tweak (Kelly's corner #155) shows the hidden files, but the button still missing.

Another thing that I encountered with was that from the start menu the "Help and Support" not working. Again, the registry seems fine, and the process is activated (started). This came up when I tried to use system restore option - with no success.

Answer:missing "show hidden files" button + "Help and Support" not working from start menu

Ok I found the answer (after quite a lot searching), as follows:

1. for the 'Hidden files' radio button - I used methods 1 and 2 from here-

2. for the helpcenter I just reinstalled it as described here -
note that the file 'dataspec.xml' is needed to be available for this, and it can't be done directly from the XP CD. The thing that worked for me was to insert the XP CD, and use the file that in my computer (C:\) and afterwards another file on the CD.

Again, all this happened with no virus detection, so I believe that there is no infection. However, if someone has remarks on the HiJackThis log I've put, feel free to add them.

Hi and THANKS for being there! This is primarily a term definition question. I don't find any clear answer in my user's guide.

I've got this terrific TV card installed, very fancy, very feature-rich.

I've got this terrific add-on AGP card installed, very fancy, very feature-rich. But I'm thinking that's beside the point. (It's a nVidia Geforce FX 5200)

This TV Tuner/Capture card dates back a ways; bought it for my old Windows Millennium machine and I remember that it worked just GREAT. It has the brand name "Brooktree" but that might just be the chipset or something. Anyway, I abandoned the TV add-on when I upgraded to a newer Windows XP machine in early 2007. I couldn't find the right driver though it worked pretty fairly with the old driver for most TV stations, it didn't work perfectly. I ditched it at the time.

I recently visited and searched diligently and finally did find a perfect driver for that TV card for XP. I am sure it is the latest and best driver available, so that is not even an issue.

Since I no longer subscribe to cable, I can use this old card to watch only channel 3, as output by my VCR. (The card also has FM radio, which works great!)

Here's the thing. A very itty-bitty teensy slight snag. When I initiate the TV Tuner, it always starts up in what they call "Preview mode". There is sound but no picture! No problem, I just tell it to go into the alternate mode, "... Read more

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

I was having an issue with my Windows 7 cursor flickering between 'arrow' and 'working in background' at an irritianting rate and found the following TechSupportGuy thread a couple of minutes ago:

One of the posts in the thread lead me to the solution but unfortunately it seems most people have opted for reinstalling the OS instead!

Given the the original thread is closed I decided to create a new one and post the solution here in an attempt to prevent people from taking such drastic measures to get rid of this (incredibly irritant) issue in the future.

I simply disabled the Windows Search service and killed the process behind it (SearchIndexer.exe) in Task Manager. My cursor is now back to normal

Disabling this service means any new files will not be indexed although you can re-enable it and leave the pc running for a couple of hours every now and again so that new files are indexed. Hope this helps!

Hey guys,

For the past few years I have been running a HDMI cable to my TV. I also have a DVI going to a monitor. I have it so when the HDMI is in, the screen is automatically on TV, if HDMI is out, it will go to monitor - ease of use when watching films on larger screen. Zero issues up until now.

Now though, the HDMI to my TV has 'No Signal'... But it is recognising that there is a HDMI source as when it isn't plugged into my PC it says 'No Cable Connected'

Seriously stressed out over this!

I have tried:

- Other HDMI cables
- Different HDMI ports on my TV
- Plugging HDMI into the back of my Xbox One's 'HDMI IN' port
- Updated my ATI drivers
- Booting with just the HDMI plugged in, no DVI

So PC folk, is this a Graphics Card issue, HDMI port issue, PSU issue, or hopefully simple settings issue?

Specs below:

AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
XPS 8300

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1
BIOS Date: 10/17/11 11:18:49 Ver: 04.06.04

Answer:HDMI not working with TV "No Signal" - do I need a new Graphics Card?

Sometimes TV's wont recognize the connection. Hook up the hdmi like always, with the computer off. While connected, turn on the computer and see if that helps.

Hello, i have a lumia 640 xl and i recently wanted to try on the insider preview builds. So as of the anniversary update the insider programme update is now in the settings. So theres a button "Get started" to join the insider preview so i tap that and wait for 1 minute and every single time it shows the error that my phone isn't connected to the internet although it is as my phone is connected to my home wifi. I restarted it. Soft restarted it and deleted the insider apps and whatever thing that might disrupt my connection to it.
Please help!

I have a fundamental problem and I know I will be told to revert to an older version of Mac/VMWare or just to Linux, but I'm so close to get everything working.

Basically, I just want to be able to do work with assembly language for the Computer Science degree I'm doing at DMU. To do this I have to have installed:
- Kate (KDE)
- Insight
- LD
I have managed to install Kate, GDB and NASM (using MacPorts) with the ability to install Insight if I can get the linker (ld) up and running.

Now, the main error message I got was through following these commands (in the Kate terminal) - my program being "eatsyscall.asm:"
bash-3.2$ nasm -f elf -g -F stabs eatsyscall.asm
bash-3.2$ ld -m elf_i386 -o eatsyscall eatsyscall.o
ld: warning: option -m is obsolete and being ignored
ld: file not found: elf_i386
I ran "-m elf_i386" due to the fact I am running a 64-bit OS and Jeff Duntemann says so.

I did an "ld -v," which gave me:
@(#)PROGRAM:ld PROJECT:ld64-136
configured to support archs: armv6 armv7 armv7s i386 x86_64
LTO support using: LLVM version 3.2svn, from Apple Clang 4.2 (build 425.0.24)

Following this, I basically searched for every MacPort containing "elf_i386" and "i386" and "gcc" and installed every one apart from "i386-rtems-gcc" of which I got an error when attempting to install:
Michaels-Mac:bin michael$ sudo port install i386-rtems-gcc

Answer:"ld" not working and "i386-rtems-gcc" not installing (MacPorts) on OS X 10.8.2 VMWare

Sometime over the last few weeks Google's "More" drop-down and its "Search Tools" menu items have quit working in IE10. The other buttons that let you select web, images, shopping, etc. still work properly.

The "More" and "Search Tools" buttons get focus when the mouse is over them and they animate when clicked but nothing happens. I have Google Chrome and Apple's Safari installed and the buttons work properly on these browsers.

I've googled it but most of the posts found are about a not-quite-the-same problem of the buttons just working momentarily. At any rate, I tried the fix [clearing cache and cookies] that some of the posters said worked but it didn't make any difference.

I've disabled all of the ad-ons and the problem is still there. I re-enabled each add-on one at a time and tried it but none of them had any effect.

I've disabled my Norton Security Suite and the problem still exists.

I've reset IE and, other than losing all of my saved passwords, it too made no difference.

I think this might be a useful clue.

I noticed that for all of the buttons that are working, when I pass the mouse pointer over them it displays a URL down in the status bar. However, for the two that are not working nothing is displayed. It appears that the controls associated with these buttons either don't exist or are being blocked.

Does anyone have the solution for this, or at least and idea of what the problem is?

Thanks in advance for ... Read more

Answer:Google "More" and "Search Tools" buttons no longer working...

Hello Howard,

you can observe one thing here. All the menu items are just links. But More and Search Tools menu items are different. More is drop down menu and Search Tools also kind of drop down but with sub menu items.

So it seems like there are some script errors with your IE 10 browser.

But i am sorry, re installing IE is the only option i can suggest.

Hey, whats up? New here.

Right now my hard drive is split up into two partitions: System and Storage. However, when installing 7, for some odd reason, the installer put the boot manager (I think it is the boot manager) on my Storage partition, when I want it on the System partition. Is there a way I can non-destructively move the boot manager to the System partition and redirect to boot from there, instead of being located on the Storage partition and booting from the System partition. In essence, I want to move it and tell it to boot from itself. Is there a way to non-destructively do that?

Also, according to this tutorial (Product Key Number - Uninstall and Deactivate in Windows) I can deactivate 7. I was wondering, does that free up the install key for another use or is that use of the key permanently lost even though I deactivated 7?

Answer:Moving bootmanager from "Storage" partition to "System" partition

As long as it is not OEM version, you can move Win7 to any computer of your choice as often as you want - as long as it is on only one computer at a time. Just uninstall it first by running from Elevated Command Prompt the command slmgr -upk., or If you don't want the old installation just delete it using the Installation DVD or a partition manager.

Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings showing all columns, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, and we will give you the steps to move the System boot files to Win7 partition.

Ooops, I meant to post this in Hardware...??

OK the box my new machine came in says:

"VRAM: Shared"

I suppose that refers to "Video" memory (?), and relates to the "Intel HD 3000 Graphics" which I also apparently have...or are they one-and-the-same, please?

This is "integrated" (built-in) graphics, yes?

And if I am able to improve upon this (or improve upon these things), what might the "LOW-END" price range to achieve that be, please?

Thanks in advance,

Answer:"VRAM: Shared"? And Graphics "Card" Question

HI Glenn

Moved your thread to hardware for you

Yes you are very correct VRAM is video ram and the shared part is generally for onboard graphics solutions like the Intel HD Graphics, so what it does is have limited RAM on the video hardware itself and then uses a portion of your main system ram to top this up.

Sadly Glenn, updating a laptop graphics is not worth the hassle or cost and in some cases you just could not do it, dependant on model as the space to fit new hardware would not be available

Question what is it you need good graphics for as in many cases for daily usage onboard graphics will be fine (Surfing, Office, Email, mid range image editing and basic games), if you wanted this laptop for mid to high end gaming then always better off with a desktop and good mid/high graphics card, but this depends on the games.

Relevance 77.49%'s an interesting problem:
1) Used to have problems with popups; however, surprisingly enough, they just stopped popping up.
2) Every time I tried to enter a website more than about one or two links in, IE would just shut down on me. I suspect that this had something to do with cookies, because it happened whenever i tried to access any webpage that needed a password or username (it even happened when i tried to view any discussion). However, this has also suddenly gone away, enabling me to post here.

That was a mini-history of recent problems...but here's the problem at hand:
1) The "Back" and "Forward" buttons are permanently shaded grey, as if the current page was the first page in the history. However, when I put my mouse over the "back" button, the little yellow tag still comes up with information about the last page visited.
2) This might be related or not, but everytime i open IE, i get redirected to a searchpage: This is obviously a browser hijack, but I ran Adaware and Spyboy S&D and niether helped. Also, the browser still returns to the correct homepage when i press the "home" button.

[Is this the right forum? I figured the "Security" in "Networking and Security" made it so this would apply here... However, not sure if it just applies to security specifically having to do with networking. If it needs moved, feel free to do so.]

I have been messing around with setting up Software Restriction Policies this evening (no AD currently (that will come later), just a bunch of computers in a workgroup), and I have run into a problem...

Here is what I have: Under enforcement, I have "All users except local administrators" selected, and for the default security level I have "Disallowed." The admin account is a created account, with the administrator account disabled, and it is in the "Administrators" group.

When I set those settings, I am unable to run programs in disallowed locations, whether it be by simply double-clicking, or by right-clicking and selecting "Run as administrator."

However, when I set the default to "Basic User," it behaves as the "Disallowed" was described... Normal users (and admin account before elevating through right-click>run as administrator) cannot run the file, but it can be run through right-click>run as administrator. Is this how it should behave?

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
