Preferred Solution: Disable Creation of old 8.3 Name

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.)

Hi,

I've disabled Circular Kernel Context Logger from Performance Monitor but the file in C:\Windows\System32\wdi\LogFiles is still getting created and the size of it increases over time while using the computer.
I pretty often get errors in Event Logger about it. Like:

The maximum file size for session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" has been reached. As a result, events might be lost (not logged) to file "C:\Windows\system32\WDI\LogFiles\BootCKCL.etl". The maximum files size is currently set to 104857600 bytes.

and

Session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188

How can I disable creation of that log file or how to get rid of the errors?

Thanks!

Answer:How to disable creation of BootCKCL.etl

1st, that isn't really going to do anything as the CKCL perfmon log you see there isn't the same one creating the bootckcl.etl file (just look at the properties of it ), so disabling that isn't going to get you anywhere. Second, the log should stop when the machine is "idle", which should be about 7-10 seconds of little CPU and disk activity.

The real curious bit is why isn't the machine hitting idle or timing out the log? I've never heard of this before, although I suppose anything is possible. Let me ping some people who are far smarter than me about what they think about this - in the meantime, can you gather / upload a boot trace as per this tutorial?

I have a Win 8.1 tablet and I'm the only user. Is there any way to disable the creation of new local accounts?

Answer:Disable creation of new accounts?

Only administrators are able to create new accounts. You could simply just not create them if you like.

Is there any way to disable the creation of the $recycle.bin folder in the root directory of all harddrives? Disable all recycle bin functions globally & permanently?

In the recycle bin properties I've chosen to delete all files directly and not move them to the recycle bin, yet everytime I connect a new harddrive (I've got 8 hot-swap bays), this option is reset for that particular drive and Windows 7 creates a $recycle.bin folder in the root directory. It really annoys me.

To prevent regular installers, just don't make the user member of the administrators group, that denies him access to write to program files and most shared locations. All MSI files require administrators right to run, and "run as administrator" will ask for an admin password in this case (which the user should not know).

Bad title?

Back story: Got a refurbished machine, when to work on it to set it up to work on my network.

Created a new user for the machine.

It's using a roaming profile.

I have no problems at this point with deleting that user and starting again, have not gotten that far into setting things up.

Question is, how do I disable that roaming profile creation?

Answer:Disable Roaming Profile Creation

Is this in a domain or workgroup environment? If a roaming profile I would suspect a domain...

To change the profile simply go to System properties in Windows and then select Advanced System Settings



From here select User Profiles to change user profile settings.



After that it should show all profiles of users that have logged on to the machine. Select the user to change and then click on Change Type...



Now you can select to change the profile to local or roaming...



To apply the changes you will need to log off and then log back in with the user in question.

In active directory you will need to go to the properties of the user in question and disassociate the UNC path to store the profile:



Hope This Helps,
Josh

I wonder if it's possible to disable automatic restore point creation, and ONLY have Windows 7 store on demand system restore points that I choose to manually create at my convenience. If I go to Administrative Tools/Task Scheduler/System Restore I find two schedule triggers. Will disabling those triggers achieve this? Will my restore points be deleted if I do this or just the schedule will be changed to on demand? Thanks

Answer:How to disable automatic restore point creation

You can disable that task. Restore points aren't deleted if you do it. But why do you want to disable it????
Restore points will be created anyway when install windows updates, uninstall/install software.
Restore points are automatically created by System Restore daily (only if no restore point has been created last 7 days) and when System Restore detects the beginning of a change to your computer, such as when you install a program or a driver.

Why do you want to disable it?

Hello, there's this annoying setting that causes Windows 10 to automatically create a desktop.ini file into a folder when I move only pictures in there. I was able to disable this in Windows 8.1 somehow, but it doesn't seem to work in Windows 10. (Here's the link: Nevermore Be Bothered by Desktop.ini | A High-Tech Blech! )

And no, somebody might suggest to turn on the Hide System Files setting. I don't want that solution. I only want that file to never be created when moving pictures into a folder.

Anyone know how to do that?

Thanks

Answer:Disable desktop.ini Creation In Folders When Moving Pictures There

Err ... umm ... It's highly possible that your wish may go unfulfilled. The desktop.ini file actually plays a real role in the Windows file system as explained in this article from The How-To Geek: What Are These desktop.ini Files I Keep Seeing?. Understanding what it does and how it does it, it seems pretty likely that while you can hide this thing (as you noted in your post) you may not be able to banish it completely.

Hi, first, I want you to try an example of what I am talking about, then see if you know how to fix this problem on your end.

Right click on your Desktop and create a new folder. Inside that folder, right click New > Bitmap image. Do the same thing to create 3 more new Bitmap images. Also, right click and create a new folder. (So now you have a total of 5 items: Four empty Bitmap Images, and One folder. In the search bar above, type: Bitmap Image
You will now see the result of the four Bitmap Images. Highlight all of them > Right Click > Cut, press the Back button on File Explorer, open the folder that you see listed above before the images > Right Click > Paste.
Once you do that, a desktop.ini file gets created. How can I avoid that from getting created?
(Note: There are certain projects where I do this process a lot for, and don't want to delete the desktop.ini folders individually, or by doing a search and deleting them, because I need to preserve certain folders' Date Modified.)

I was able to somehow fix this in Windows 8.1, but cannot remember/figure out how to do it again.

Answer:Disable desktop.ini Creation When Moving Pictures From A Search Result

desktop.ini should be a hidden, system file that you don't see unless you have Hide protected operating system files unchecked.

That tutorial is for disabling the lock screen itself instead. The lock screen cannot be disabled if you have the CTLR+ALT+DELETE secure sign-in enabled. If you wanted to keep the lock screen, then be sure to enable it again before doing the tutorial below.

Is microsoft saying "Enabling Remove CD burning feature"?
Or is disable means really disable CD burning feature?
 

Answer:Does Disable CD burning policy at Win 7 means Enable or Disable?

The option is "Remove CD Burning Features" and the selection you want is Enabled which means ""Remove CD Burning Features are now enabled" hence they are removed and burning is not allowed.

Yes, I agree, Microsoft does choose some rather stupid terminology to do some things, especially the file copy/overwrite dialogues which can be truly confusing for some people.

It would have been more efficient and simple to name the option "CD Burning Features" and that is either enabled or disabled, but no... they gotta make it twist in on itself with semantic bullshit.

The whole enabled/disabled thing would be better served with simple yes or no choices.

I'm certain I'm not the only person with this problem.
Bluetooth is installed on my Samsung laptop running the latest version of Windows 10. Here's the problem: every so often a routine Windows update totally disables Bluetooth, or rather, prevents it from being discovered. It's there, but isn't recognised in Settings. It's hidden in Device Manager. So it's gone, dead, unusable, can't be made to connect or even to be visible.
Then another Microsoft update comes along after a few days or a week or a month, and suddenly all is well again! As if by magic, Bluetooth reappears in the systems tray and works like a charm, as if it had never gone away.
This is happening constantly. It's flip-flopped like this about five or six times. Windows update, no Bluetooth. Next Windows update, Bluetooth is back. Another Windows update, Bluetooth is gone again.
This is ridiculous. Windows needs to solve this anomaly. Look online and you will see that many people are experiencing it. Oh, and by the way I've followed every fix, every tutorials, nothing works. The only thing that works is to wait for the next blinkin' Windows update to fix it.
And, since opening my computer this morning after the most recent update, to find Bluetooth has once again vanished, that's what I guess I have to do -- wait for the next update and hope it includes a fix. (Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.)
This is NOT a problem with my laptop or with the driver or anything like that. This is a Windows update problem... Read more

That is not a Windows function so you cannot disable it in Windows without disabling the entire driver, which is not a good idea. Sadly you failed to tell us anything about your computer. Assuming a notebook, you need to look at your key labels or in your manual to see how to disable the pad. It typically is a Function key combination.

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

Answer:AVI or MPG DVD creation

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

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

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

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

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

Question: DvD Creation

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

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

So my question is:

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

EDIT:

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

Answer:DvD Creation

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

Hope this helps!

Hiya

Found this:

just search for jpg.

Ah, here's something.

Use something like BBMPEG and the list option and define the number of
frames to last 25 x the number of seconds you want them to be on screen.
Resize them to 720 x 576 first and output to MPEG2 for best quality.

Resize them to 352 x 288 for MPEG1 or VCD

These settings are for PAL.Click to expand...

Question: DVD Creation

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

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

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

Any software to do that? And is there any software that can export a database into something presentable? (Like does microsoft have any software that syncs like that?)

I guess the most important thing is having presentable pages like frames where I click on a menu on the left and it opens on the right.

THanks for any help.
 

Answer:dvd creation software?

Well there is a wide choice.

If your looking to make simple data disk, Try BurnAware Free Edition http://www.snapfiles.com/get/burnaware.html

or DeepBurner

For DVDs with videos you can play on a DVD player, If you have Vista you can use Windows DVD maker, you'll find it built in.

But what you want i think is something more interactive, Normally you would make a powerpoint presentation, but if you want it on a DVD, im not sure.
You could try Nero http://www.nero.com/eng/nero8-introduction.html

Question: Reg File Creation

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

Answer:Reg File Creation

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

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

Answer:invoice creation

Hello there,

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

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

Answer:PDF Thumbnail Creation

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

I have a very restrictive permission system on my external hard drive, for security reasons (and because the files on the drive are very valuable (to me at least), scientific journal articles amongst other things) I have it set so that:
only one user (an admin, which has full control) can delete, this is further restricted by another permission that disallows deletion (this applies to all users, even 'everyone' group) so I have to make the conscious decision to remove the disable permission, then enter that user's admin password on the UAC screen to delete any files. This is to hopefully prevent accidental deletion of any files and to prevent any malware corrupting these files (I don't ever install using that admin account or use that admin account for anything other than when I am using these files)only my main account (read, write & execute) & that admin account has write capabilities (annoyingly though to rename/move a file the delete permission is used, why is that? Shouldn't rename at least be 'write' not 'delete'?)Only that admin account can take ownership and/or edit permissions, through both the filesystem permission and the 'take ownership' power in Group policy (only that admin account has that ability). Again, like delete, further restricted by a 'deny take ownership & change permission' group which further disallows any other user from making changesevery other user, including the 'everyone' group only has read & execute access

Hey everyone,

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

Thanks in advance!

Answer:DVD creation software

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

I have an excel spreadsheet that I am using with several VLOOKUP values referencing customer survey questions. There are several ticket numbers one one sheet that each have a series of questions asked to the customer, along with a rating of 1-5.

I also have a tech assigned to each of the tickets, so when a ticket # is chosen from the dropdown, the appropriate tech's name is also displayed.

What I am trying to do is have a checkbox, Yes/No, or True/False cell where the tech can toggle the value for each ticket. I know I can create a "third" column for the Yes/No value with another VLOOKUP to tie in to each ticket, but how can I get the value to be displayed based upon what the tech is choosing in the same cell?

I wish to create a .bat file which would restart a particular process, "ObjectDock.exe". It's location is "C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\ObjectDock.exe". I know this is a two step process, first to terminate ObjectDock.exe, then launch it. I've used taskkill but to no avail thus far. Could anyone help?

Question: Error Box creation

Does anyone know where I can pick up a blank error box from within the windows files. Someone is creating a workbook and needs to get hold of a blank Windows error box to be able to type text into.The Laptop is a W98SE, not able to connect to the internet and miles from here so getting one off the internet is out of the question. Just thought there may be a blank template that windows uses and then writes to. Better still, is there a way of producing error messages within windows that would give the required text and such or is that in the programmers area of expertise?Craig

Answer:Error Box creation

I'm not quite sure what you're after. To display an error message in Excel (I presume?) you would use some VBA code likeMsgBox prompt:="Temp outside range 1 to 100", _Title:="Data Validation Failure", Buttons:=vbExclamationIf you are trying to get user input from a box you would use something likeSub InputBoxExample()Dim cellValue As VariantreShowInputBox:cellValue = Application.InputBox("Enter value to go in A3")If cellValue = False ThenBeepExit Sub ElseIf cellValue = "" ThenBeepGoTo reShowInputBoxElse ActiveSheet.Range("A3").Value = cellValue End IfEnd Sub

I am looking for some people who are good at programming. I need some people who can work with me to make a multi engine antivirus, i will not be able to help code (i havent learned how to program yet) but i will be able to provide lots of of information such as viruses to add to the av list of what to quarantine. I will also be able to provide money to go to the support of the antivirus creation but i wont be able to for awhile because i have to get a place to live and a new job. This antivirus will be a pretty good antivirus because it will also be made into a iso which provides a better chance of removing viruses. If you are into antiviruses and things of that nature then you would have nothing to loose and alot to gain from doing this. We could make the antivirus free or cheap or similar to other antivirus prices. If for every person working on this was to add a dollar to the cost then at 1 million downloads we could be millionaires(im not doing this for the money but money will give people more reason to help). If you have ever heard of herdprotect(antimalware) then you have an idea of what type of antivirus im thinking about except it will be a available as a rescue disk. Tell me if your interested at helping at all.

Answer:Antivirus creation.

I'm not a programmer but your idea sounds awesome in fact I had the exact same idea in my head for about two years now although my concept would be based off open source software like Linux and ClamAV but I don't have the resources to make it happen. If you can make this into a donation based project kind of open alternative to HitMan Pro/FixMEStick I think allot people would like that. I mean obviously the extra AV/antimalware engines wouldn't be open source but the base could be based off ClamAV. I hope your idea succeeds.

Question: Package Creation

Hi,
COuld anyone let me know the steps to create a package?I was told that initially I have to create a folder(with the package name), then write a program that starts with "package package_name;", then another program starting with "import package_name.class_name".Im confused abou this because instead of creating the folder/package manually, I had come across something like javac -d java_filename.java or something which creates the package & places the class file in it.
Could anyone let me know the exact procedure?
Thanks.

I want to make a TV Commercial for my DiDA IT GCSE, as I need to promote a company that we have created.
How do I go about doing this?
Also, which software would be best? I don't mind if there trials.

Thanks

Answer:Tv Commercial Creation

I am not an expert in video production and design (more of the graphic design type), but I do have several friends who are into video production. They use and highly recommend Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects. I am a huge fan of Adobe and I use all of their products for my graphic design work. BTW, both of these programs have trial version available.

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

When you have some real details to share, post them. Then PM a mod to move this to the "Webmastering and Programming" forum.

I have a very restrictive permission system on my external hard drive, for security reasons (and because the files on the drive are very valuable (to me at least), scientific journal articles amongst other things) I have it set so that:
only one user (an admin, which has full control) can delete, this is further restricted by another permission that disallows deletion (this applies to all users, even 'everyone' group) so I have to make the conscious decision to remove the disable permission, then enter that user's admin password on the UAC screen to delete any files. This is to hopefully prevent accidental deletion of any files and to prevent any malware corrupting these files (I don't ever install using that admin account or use that admin account for anything other than when I am using these files)only my main account (read, write & execute) & that admin account has write capabilities (annoyingly though to rename/move a file the delete permission is used, why is that? Shouldn't rename at least be 'write' not 'delete'?)Only that admin account can take ownership and/or edit permissions, through both the filesystem permission and the 'take ownership' power in Group policy (only that admin account has that ability). Again, like delete, further restricted by a 'deny take ownership & change permission' group which further disallows any other user from making changesevery other user, including the 'everyone' group only has read & execute access

Answer:Suppress *.tmp creation

There is a Task Schedule event for DiskCleanup which you might be able to adjust so that it automatically deletes temporary files on a regular basis. It's just a suggestion but it might need the help of other experts to set it up for your particular circumstances.

Question: Icon Creation

Hi I needed to create a icon for a Link that were pushing out to our company. I created the link and made an icon picture and it looks good. When i start to transfer it to different computers on the domain it doesnt retain the picture. Would anyone know how to fix that?

Answer:Icon Creation

Well the icons pic. Needs to be somewhere acsesable by the computers in the domain and the pics path needs to be to a centeralized location in the server network so that it can display it. Or you could just pu the pic somwhere on all of the computers that the icon is on.
