If you want to restore uninstalled programs, I think the only way is to do a system restore. Type "System Restore" in the start menu search field to access to the system restore tool and choose the restore point you want to recover. However, it requires that the system restore option for that drive is enabled or you won't get any restore points. Please be ...

Based on the script from Jeremy and Jonas Herdick, I wrote this toggle script, which is localization independent (so also works with German windows) and helps me to disable and restore (to what ever it was before) the lid close action when putting my notebook to it's dock (where the lid needs to closed). And yes, don't forget to re-activate the current ...

If the hardware is too old it may not have available drivers for Windows 8. Anyways, you can still search the manufacturer site for compatible drivers, you are likely to find more info in there. I have a HP laptop (DV6 as well), and I remember when I installed Windows 8 I got the drivers from AMD, Realtek ... sites, and they worked perfectly. If you need ...

With group policy (gpedit.msc), you can prevent a given service from running, making it disabled. The restriction is on the service itself, not on a particular executable file.

I found these instructions on the Microsoft forum, which were posted by Vijay B. I've formatted them in a way that makes more sense to me.

The reason you're seeing blank rows when you use | more is that though the CSV's encoding is ANSI all right, it has extra Carriage Returns as you can see below: If you omit the | more you end up with a Unicode CSV. Unfortunately Excel seems to have problems with such CSVs, in that on opening them the values aren't separated into columns. There are two ...

Give this a shot. You can define where the logs go, what the error code is, etc. Make it your own. If you want to use gmail to send the message, there's a tutorial I saw a while back.

When you can't find the csm, the legacy, if Rufus seems too complicated and none of the other options in the answers listed here suites you... try a reset of your Bios to "Optimized Defaults".

I cannot tolerate existence on a Windows box without Cygwin, so here's the alias I put in my bash profile: alias uptime="perl -e "\''$t=(``wmic OS Get LastBootUpTime``)[1];$t=~s/^\s*(\d{4})(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)(\.\d{6}-\d\d\d)/$1-$2-$3 $4:$5:$6$7/;print$t'\' You can use that Perl example to format the time any way you want.

You can always query the registry values directly: for /f "skip=2 tokens=2*" %a in ('reg query HKCU\Environment /v PATH') do @echo %b for /f "skip=2 tokens=2*" %a in ('reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" /v PATH') do @echo %b

Mmh, might be a bit old but here's what did it for me : Select one of the song in your music folder > right click and chose "open with" > chose default program > Select Windows Media Player > check the box with "always use that program to open that type of file" -- last step not necessary but otherwise you'll have to do this for every song. In short, ...

The error message you were quoting earlier is a grub error message so you did perform a "boot repair" from your ubuntu installation which will repair your ubuntu install on the usb stick, not your windows hdd.

The only other response mentions REMOVING THE USB. Have you done this before trying to boot to W7? If not, I bet if you remove it and then turn it on, it will boot just fine. I have had this happen to me a few times, and at first your heart drops and then, oh ya... Good luck.

The message you describe sounds like the drive was not disconnected "gracefully". Sometimes, information that is supposed to be saved to the drive is temporarily stored and then written later. When you "eject" the drive, it forces any cached information to be written, ensuring everything is complete. If you simply disconnect the drive without ejecting, it ...

With Acrobat XI running, open Windows' Task Manager (Ctl-Alt-Del will do). Open "Processes" tab. Look for "AdobeCollabSync.exe". There should be only one copy running. If there are more than one, end them. Close Task Manager, and see if Acrobat runs OK.

Are you able to enter the F8 list before the windows restart ? If so you can use the "Last known good configuration" option to try a clean startup. If not, I suggest to download a Hiren BootCD from here: http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd and to burn it to a blank CD. It contains many tools that can help you explore the ssd and try to recover files if you ...

I have found a work around on Windows 8. (However still nothing on Windows 7) Where you set the lock screen wallpaper.

The image seems to slightly zoom in and slides image ...

I know the original question was posted back over a year from now , but anyway I would like to share how I could resolve a similar issue: You should first verify that the "Virtual WiFi Filter Driver" is running, as if this driver is stopped, then you'll get the msg : "The hosted network couldn't be started.

You may be nested deeper than you were previously if you are using the Windows user folders under C:\%HOMEPATH%\Documents etc. or any number of other reasons. Flattening your structure with shorter names is really your only option. To clean up the offending directory, make sure you have your files safely stored in a new folder and clean up the old one ...

What you need to do is use the Microsoft tool robocopy.exe. Create a new empty folder, e.g. c:\empty Then copy that empty folder onto the folder which contains the long filenames which you're trying to delete, e.g. c:\myannoyingfolder. Do this like so in the command prompt: robocopy /MIR c:\empty c:\myannoyingfolder

@cptloop Default Audio Changer was pretty good, but annoyingly would not set a device as the default communications device after it had been set as the default device.

NEVER try to install Windows into a non-boot partition, or onto a non-default drive. Recipe for disaster. Either temporarily disconnect SATA1 or else change the BIOS boot order so the empty disk is the first in line. (Better disconnecting as you know that will stop access to the wrong disk) Most computers will boot from USB, but if you cannot, then an ...

You need to use 'tile' mode and create a wallpaper in photoshop/gimp etc which covers both screens, ie add the widths together. As the heights differ too there will be a bit of juggling getting them vertically aligned. One advantage of this approach is that the wallpapers need not be the same.

When it says, "Moving these is also not supported" it is referring to the fact that doing so rarely results in a reliable system, upgrade or no. The problem here is that many programs make absolute references to files inside these folders, so if you move the folder then the file is not found. If you type set in a cmd (dos) prompt and press enter, it will ...

The cool way is called Aero Shake. Use the mouse like you would move a Window, but shake it (move left and to right very fast).

The coolest way to minimize all the windows except the one that's active is to literally shake the window. Yes, as in: click and hold on the frame of the window move repetitively and quickly to the left and right Tada! (Credit goes to 9Gag for this.)

There could be a number of reasons for your problems, and it's hard to say which. My advice when setting something like this up would be: Don't bridge. That is principally for paralleled connections to the same LAN. Use a cheap switch/hub instead of an X-over cable, which is not always reliable. Buy an Ethernet wireless access point and connect this ...

The reason why it doesnt work, is that the virtual machine is using a generic virtual CD/DVD ROM driver. The actual hardware is abstracted from the VM and all it knows is that there is a CD/DVD ROM device is present. The reality is, there might not actually be hardware there. It could just be an .ISO or even another virtual drive. Does this mean it cant ...

Your PC is not accessing the printer directly through the wifi, instead, the traffic between your printer and PC goes through the router first. You do not need the wifi card for your PC at all and that is probably the reason you have experienced a slow down -- because your PC is using the wifi and not the ethernet connection. To get the printer working ...

One way or another, your computer needs to communicate with your printer via your home network. Both devices should be connected to your home router. It doesn't matter if it's via Wired or Wireless; you can mix and match - as long as the router sees both your computer and the printer, you will be able to print. As such, you don't need a USB WiFi adapter ...
