It is a shared folder. More info here

It would help if you'd specified which OS you're running (Windows 7, 8, 8.1, etc.)... but... I believe this means that the indicated folder will appear in all users' start menus. I see this on my machine (Windows 8.1), not for that folder, but for %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows - meaning that the Start Menu and everything else under ...

Some ideas: sell it before similar laptop prices on ebay drop below 100-200$ sell it before it fall apart into pieces (I had few Dell laptops and all of them had bad chassis, bad hinges, touchpads going crazy after few years of use etc.) give it to your parents or someone else "laptop crash test" youtube video ;) If your hinges or chassis is already ...

Thats not what readyboost does - readyboost uses local storage, specifically USB or flash based storage as disk cache. You'd need a system that supports target mode to do this, and outside some apple laptops (that did this over firewire, and I think thunderbold), this simply does not exist. As for salvage not terribly much. The Laptop screen is connected ...

First try a normal reset To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. - With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When ...

You can use Event Viewer. Look under "Windows Logs" and "Application" for installation event sources such as MsiInstaller around the time of the uninstallations. This is cumbersome and may not include all uninstallations, but it is better than nothing.

Windows Explorer is located at C:\Windows\explorer.exe

Windows Explorer is 'the desktop' & everything displayed on it, icons, open windows showing folders etc. The only time it wouldn't be active would be if you had manually quit it or it had crashed. Tap the Windows Key or click Start & start typing windows explorer - it will be the first item in the list. Opening it will just show you a new folder ...

If you click on "Use another account", in the "User name" field you can type your virtual machine computer name and use the "\" and then your user name that you would use to log on to your virtual machine. This should change the "Domain: xxx" to the one that you entered before the backslash in the "User name" field. Then enter your password, the one for the ...

Starting with Vista also IO calls have priorities. By default the defrag runs at very low priority. You can use Processhacker, to set the IO Priority of the defrag tool to high: This improves the speed a bit.

To defrag or not to defrag? Do you even need to defrag? While defragging strictly when needed will give a moderate performance restoration, disk fragmentation is rarely the cause of performance issues in modern computer systems - you have to have either a very full disk or a very atypical workload, as Windows, OS X, and Linux all try to avoid creating ...

You absolutely should kill any running processes, as anything writing to the disk while a defrag is occurring can interfere with the process, and make it take longer. Obviously, a faster HDD will defrag faster (with the best choice being an SSD), but you should see decent gains just by closing all other non-system processes.

It seems as if Java is ignoring the settings on purpose (in javacpl.exe), but sometimes this is happening because there are more then one version of Java installed on the PC, so one must change the settings for every version separately. For me the best way is to download Autoruns from Sysinternls and run it as Administrator. From there uncheck Java ...

Combining the answers from Axel Kemper and adding some extra's, here is what I did to make a permanent command that you can give any name you want. First of all I created an extra folder. In my case: "C:\Users\Hansel\CmdFiles". In this folder I created a new text file throught the right click menu -> new -> text document. Edit the text document using ...

I find Process Hacker 2 useful for exactly that. It allows you to alter process priorities (including those of TrustedInstaller.exe) and save the CPU priority setting so it is always used so long as the Process Hacker program is running.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8BQdD985KpbMmFpQk5obERaRzQ/edit?usp=sharing During my research into this, I found this somewhere. It's machine translated, so .... But it's a great resource. Soooo, some services were "gonna get gót", and based on other resource and on Black Viper I eliminated these (48 outta 152 ... well, it aint bad.): Adobe Acrobat ...

One thing to keep in mind is that, the computers you want to shutdown must be in the same Wi-Fi network as the "controlling" computer. There are many solutions to this, I simply chose this one. This is a simple network access issue. You will have access to certain computer some times, but that is not this case. To gain access of another computer for you to ...

Running the Network under Protected Mode worked for you. You discovered that only sites https were those you couldn't access. I am suggesting to check if SSL or TSL is enabled. Renewing any Certificate might be a good idea.

I still use EasyBCD 1.72, which is afaik, the last freeware version. It works under XP, Vista and W7. I suggest this as an alternative. PS. If punctuation really matters to the powers that be, I'd like to point out the following spelling error on the site. It's "I'd like to improve my answer!" not "I'd Like to improve my answer!"

It seems that your boot loader on the hard disk is corrupted. The boot loader is the piece of code that checks the partitions on the hard disk and show you the boot menu. Since all your partitions contains Windows installations, chances are good that if you reinstall the Windows 7 boot loader everything will be well. Try to start the computer from a ...
