Power2Go 7 This is one of the sections, but they all have a similar appearance – note the facility to rip and convert audio files, and also to launch LabelPrint, a companion utility. Power2Go 7 is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and most importantly Windows 7. While working with this program, it is no… Continue reading Cyberlink Reviews
I like to put my computer into hibernation when I am going to be away form it for a while. Most of the time, it goes to hibernate and stays there, but not always. Why is this? The hardware and software configuration never changes. I don’t add or remove very much at all, especially hardware.… Continue reading Hibernation.. no rhyme or reason
During 2006, I bought a 19” 4:3 LCD Monitor. It was bright, clear and offered more real estate than a 19” CRT type. It took up less room on the desk and generated less heat into the atmosphere too. It replaced a seven year old 17” CRT which incidentally still works. It is not as… Continue reading LCD monitor lifespan
Apparently, this file does not exist, even though a computer might tell you that it does. Certainly, I couldn’t find it. I even removed the laptop hard drive and attached it to another system, just in case there was something hiding it in the host OS. From what I can gather, it is a vestige… Continue reading Win32.Patched.gq
DWL G122/132 USB Adapters On the basis of a post in MS Answers.. http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7hardware/thread/8856ddb5-ff72-4f32-9e6d-5d94e6aa5182 . I decided to try out my D-Link G132 on my 64-bit Windows 7 desktop. Surprisingly, it installed and was working within a couple of minutes. Why surprising? Well, it was discontinued in 2007 and there were never any 64-bit drivers… Continue reading Hardware drivers
Why does Windows Update serve these up as optional? I would have thought that updates for any security program like Microsoft Security Essentials would be essential at the very least. Regardless of what some consider privacy issues, updates to anti-malware solutions should be installed at the same time as definition updates. I am all for… Continue reading MSE updates..
I had been playing a game, Zuma’s Revenge, that corrupted after a while. So I decided to uninstall it for a while because I had been playing it too much anyway. It is one of many annoying yet addictive games. Revo Uninstaller I used the advanced removal procedure which claims to to a deep scan… Continue reading Uninstallers
A real joker is this one. The obvious effect of Findgala virus is easy to stop. All one has to do is locate the Windows Hosts file and delete it. No more browser redirection. Yippeeeee. But wait,, the browser redirection ruse is just to let you know that it has infected you. Any attempt to… Continue reading Findgala..
The Intel D101GGC is a motherboard used by OEM computer manufacturers. It has little by way of labels, and I only found out what it was because I installed SIW (the free version). It must have been quite a popular 775 base, ‘must have been’ because it is no longer supported properly. No kidding!!! Type… Continue reading All drivers?
Needless to say, the removal of the Homegroup did nothing to help the wireless cause, and I knew that it wouldn’t. But one has to try these things anyway. This morning, I used SIW to identify the wireless NIC. It is a Realtek 8191SE, and it just so happens that Realtek have a driver for… Continue reading More on the wireless connection..
The wireless connection.. .. to the Toshiba laptop is still giving grief. After a short period of working without a hitch, it decides to hitch anyway after sleep mode or every 6 hours, whichever comes first. I have looked through the D-Link forums, and the latest work around is to disable the Windows 7 Homegroup.… Continue reading Problems Pending..
