First up, make sure that your processor is 64-bit. You can figure that out with Speccy and/or Google. (If your machine isn't 64-bit, you'll never be able to run a 64-bit OS.) Go to the Microsoft Software Recovery page. Enter your 64-bit Windows 7 product key and fill out any other forms it throws at you. It'll download an ISO file, which is the image of the ...

I had the same issue on my machine. Check your Windows Path variable. My path linked Java via C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath and that folder contained symlinks to the actual executables located under C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_45\bin. I deleted the the C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath entry and replaced it with C:\Program ...

It's malware. I caught mine with "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware", once the software quarantined an number of files, my web browser functioned normally again. All those connections are siphoning off your data and files.

After renaming the connection to some more simple name e.g.: "MySite Live" the problem solved.

You need VT-X support for 64 bit guests IIRC, and there's no 64 bit support in that processor

I had to do this too. The way I got around it was creating a symbolic link named Program Files2 through Windows. Switching to Ubuntu, you can delete the Program Files folder and rename the link, removing the 2. This should work for any type of link. Before attempting this, make sure you have a back up, or some way to revert to the old set up. With the copy ...

The standard Office 2013 64-bit install contains no (incompatible ActiveX) add-ons. This is saying that if you have programs in that list installed already (ie: the Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system) then they can/will block your install of Office 64-bit. WLL's are a specific type of add-on, which Office 64-bit does not support.

I had the same problem, and I fixed it by performing the following steps: Go to "Control Panel" → "Power Options". On the left hand side of the screen it should say "Change when the computer sleeps". Click it. Click "Change advanced power settings".  A small "Power Options" window will pop up. Expand the "Hard disk" section by clicking on the + to the ...

No. It would only be a 32-bit system if it had a 32-bit kernel; 32-bit programs; 32-bit libraries (DLL's); and 32-bit drivers. That's pretty much the entire OS. To replace all that wouldn't be much different from reinstalling the OS. In fact, since there are no existing tools for it, it would take longer to do so than to reinstall. (Not sure what meaning ...

I use IrCOMM2k on Windows 7 with a Gearmo IrDA USB Adapter. There's nothing special about the Gearmo adapter--it doesn't normally provide a virtual COM port in Windows 7. However, IrCOMM2k provides a virtual COM port and sends the data out the Gearmo adapter.

as far as I know due to license issues none of those carry native (ootb support) however For Ubuntu /Debian (or based on): its a simple nvidia or edgers ppa add if the "latest" ---while not always best drivers are not sourced by default. For Redhat (or based on): you need to install nvidia-337-* or possibly newer

I just noticed now that there was a 3rd option in many of the updates, it included [for Windows Server 2012 R2] with the [for x64-based systems] and generic [] so they MUST be talking about the OS and not the CPU architecture. So in this case the x64 is referring to 64-bit OS and not CPU architecture.

It's still a bit of a mystery, but the problem no longer exists so I figured I'd better document it in case someone else has a similar problem (and to close it). I found instructions at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/42776-extract-files-windows-7-installation-dvd.html regarding how to extract DLLs from the original DVDs for Windows 7. I operated ...

Run Process Hacker, select the Winamp process, make a right click and select "Terminator": Here you can run several ways to terminate a process.

Some processes show in the Details pane of Task Manager that do not appear in the Processes pane. MS/SysInternal's Process Explorer might provide you with more detail yet; if a process is balky, there's an option under the File menu to restart Process Explorer as Administrator. You may need to kill the process tree (the process and any child process), ...

I agree. The beta keys eventually expire. Did you try Temporarily downloading the firewall? It may require that is installed on a Windows Enterprise System or Windows Pro Operating System. In the future: Short of it being a Work at Home version (Microsoft's Home Use Program) a retail version, (from a store), or an OEM version (pre-installed on a laptop), ...

At the end of the day I did a repair-install of Windows 8 as described here - http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/26095-repair-install-windows-8-a.html and then Windows Update and then installed .NET 4.5.2 Developer Pack. That did it.

I have had the exact same error message for a corrupt installer. An installer that was created for Windows 7 (32bit/64bit) in the first place, got corrupt while being transferred via email, showing this message (on Windows 7 64bit). The non-corrupt file installed fine. So, I suggest you try the installer on a Win XP machine before trying more technical ...

I have tried doing it in another way. Try installing windows XP first in C drive, and then install windows 7 or 8.1 in D drive. The boot menu will automatically do everything and you won't have to do any tweaking or extended settings. Hope this helps.

Every program runs in its' own virtual memory space. These are allocated in 1MB chunks as the program requests memory from the OS. The programs see this memory as one large, contiguous block of memory (the so-called "flat memory model."). This was different than the older 16-bit model "segmented memory" model, where two registers would combine into a single ...

I have been looking around a little on my computer, uninstalling lots of things to look if the cached memory changed. I used to have Panda Antivirus and that little thing was the reason that 28000 MB was cached after some hours, having 32 GB ram (-4 because of rapid mode from EVO840) it would leave me at 0-10 MB free RAM, and that made me unable to start ...

I've done this with a Win 8.1 host, using (at various times) MS Hyper-V, VMware, and VirtualBox. Also MS Virtual PC under Win 7. It "just works". Do it. :)

For first core, look at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0 For example: "Update Revision" = 0xba - current latest microcode (from mcupdate_*.dll) "Previous Update Revision" = 0xb3 - default original microcode version (from BIOS) "Identifier" - Intel64 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11 "Platform Specific Field 1" - 0x80 ...
