Microsoft offers a tool called Attack Surface Analyzer that you can use to find this out. While it is intended to aid finding security-sensitive changes, it can find others too. It is a free download. I've had the best success running it on Win7, though it should support other OSes too. What you do is start with a clean system (with ASA installed), and run ...

I heard that there is the issue with Adobe thumbnails in Windows 8 to 10. You can use SageThumbs until adobe patches this issue. You may also need to adjust PSD file size in the setting of SageThumbs to make bigger file size PSDs also viewable.

The first thing I would try is the System File checker. From an administrative command prompt run: sfc /scannow More info on it here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_10-update/system-file-check-sfc-scan-and-repair-system-files/bc609315-da1f-4775-812c-695b60477a93

Just as like @TallTed said, the issue is related to the double-version of the ODBC Administrator released in Windows 7 x64 (and above ed.). I personally found great this official KB article that really helped me out to overcome the issue: your specific issue is also addressed in another KB post here. I also tried to summarize this specific scenario here. ...

Finally I found a solution to backup folders settings. When we configure Folders Options and "Apply to all folders" our settings, Microsoft doesn't store them in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\AllFolders, as it would be logical, but in the regkey of the folder we modified (e.g. ...

If you are using Windows 10 File explorer, click on "File" (left top corner) & mouse over "Open Command Prompt". There is an option to run as administrator.

Yes, you should. The Windows Registry allows you to export keys, which means you can right click what you are about to delete, and click export, then save a .reg file. This will save your registry settings (the .psd key and all subkeys). Then, if you do not like your changes, you can simply right click the file you created and hit merge, and you will have ...

I don't have Windows 10, but the free 7+ Taskbar Tweaker is supposed to have this tweak. Set the taskbar properties to "Always combine, hide labels", then in taskbar tweaker set Combining to "Don’t combine". You can also configure this option per application.

Not possible from the registry. This is typically done by using the Local User Manager ("C:\windows\system32\lusrmgr.msc") If you navigate to groups > Administrators, you can add and remove users from the admin groups. You can also Add and remove users from Administrators in a number of ways including the Net LocalGroup command: net localgroup ...

No. But if it were possible, you'd have to have Admin rights to make the change, and since you have these rights, you can look at membership in the Administrators group to determine if a user has Admin rights. For more information look at the net user command.

Yes. Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) and Application Virtualization (App-V) are two tools that monitor and capture registry and file writes on one computer and carefully replicate them on other computers. The result is that an application can be run on the target computer without installing it. This is how a very large number of ...

It is unlikely. Although procmon does monitor everything the application does, you actually have to perform all actions in order to fully get the entire scope for that application. Not performing a certain task may not expose a certain registry key or file that you miss. Then again, procmon does not tell you which dll's it registers. One dll may actually ...

Not for performance. (You might shave a microsecond somewhere, but you've already wasted a million times that by clicking the Clean button.) However, if done properly, it can resolve discrepancies in the system that confuse the user or other applications. To give you a hypothetical example (I can't remember if this is exactly the sort of thing that can ...

Literaly the answer is NO and YES but carefully and only with good justification. Oviously modifications or cleanup to the windows registry haves Advantages and Disadvantages. Im personally against that Registry Cleanup Software which made a one touch registry clean task, without any noticeable warning, you always should keep in mind the scenario where ...

A registry cleaner will not fix crashes or problems of any kind because it only removes entries that it knows have no effect. While a registry cleaner will have a very slight effect on performance, it's generally too small to measure. The registry is a fairly efficient structure, so reducing its size slightly won't make accesses measurably faster. And the ...

Alex, First off, thank you for your answer. I'm new to the forum and I posted a question as a guest. Now, I'm registered but I cannot comment on your answer (until my reputation is 50) I can force Windows to use the second Monitor; that's not the problem. The application will not show video because it detects it's an external monitor. As such, the ...

Assuming you're on Windows 7/8/8.1, hit Win-P, and select second screen only. This will force Windows to use only the external monitor. There is no need (nor any way) to do this via the registry. The laptop has no concept of built-in or external, just a port with a monitor on it.

The hard drive could be packed up resulting in loss of data at the later stage if only repaired... My advice would be to remove that HDD, plug it on a different machine as a slave to perform your backups, then format the entire hard to confirm its consistency, reinstall the OS, then restore your data. If all that fails, replace hard drive

Error code 7b refers to your hard drive and/or controller. Boot from Windows 7 DVD. Choose "Repair my PC" and get the command prompt: chkdsk /R c: chkdsk /R d: chkdsk /r E: Then reboot. If it works, After that you seriously want to consider getting a new hdd and cloning the data over and replacing the drive.

FYI, this does not work via HKLM, in my experience. I had to change this setting on a bunch of Citrix servers. What worked for me, since we wanted to disable this for all users, current and new, was to load the default profile, rather than individual user profiles, and edit the HKCU hive. We also wanted to disable compatibility mode on intranet sites. ...
