I assume your harddisk is working overtime as well ? You can reduce memory usage. Firstly, install a program called CLEANMEM (from PcWinTech) and let the program also collapse the filecache. Reduced memory usage also means that Win XP doesn't need to access the harddisk that often. It improves overall system performance. The best way is to add more memory. ...

To return freed space was held by deleted partition you can either work from Windows with something like Partition Wizard or from Ubuntu with Gparted. Returning space means resize, and often, moving the partitions. The last one is just copying itself. So be ready it may take a few hours. Also you can run Linux's Gparted from Live CD of a variety linux ...

6 gb should be more than enough to hold anything you need in memory. Note that ram differs due to bus speed and quality. My experience has been that ubuntu will out preform xp with the same specs.

Dual booting does not require the use of more ram. You are running one os at a time. If you were planning to run a virtual machine than more ram would be advised. Ubuntu, depending on if your system is optimized should use less system resources than Windows XP, how much ram do you have right now?

It sounds like some sort of corruption. First try accessing it from cmd: dir e:\ If this doesn't do anything meaningful, check for error messages during boot-up. If booting is error-free, right-click on My Computer, then select Manage and in the box that comes up Disk Management. If the E: partition shows as healthy, right-click on it, select ...

Well, partially correct, you cannot really edit the Microsoft Credentials easily, and the command is not rdp, but if you run the command mstsc it will correct the 'save password' issue on WinXP.

The Operating System will always consume some amount of memory to do it's work and reserve some for caching data. Furthermore, any programs that you might have installed and have components that load on startup will consume memory. Eg: Antivirus. Memory is also consumed by the inbuilt graphics capabilities of your processor/motherboard. The total ...

The motherboard might be using some of that memory as well as the onboard video card if there is any solded onto the motherboard

I had a motherboard from ASUS that wouldn't boot from USB unless you went through the one-time boot menu. It didn't matter if you told the BIOS that is was a USB FDD, a USB HDD, or some third "USB" option; it simply never worked. Instead, when you boot, try hitting F12 repeatedly. With some BIOS's, this will bring up a menu to select the device to boot ...

No, you cannot, as the technicality in how the OS works is changed too much. You can, however, go from Windows XP to Vista (if you have the license), then to Windows 7, without losing your data. This Technet page explains all the upgrade paths available to Windows 7.

To edit boot.ini you could try: run>sysdm.cpl On the Advanced tab click Settings and then Edit. This will open boot.ini in a text editor (Notepad in my case). Make your edits and save (having first saved a copy of the original just in case!).

Those "other sub-menus" do not have the same functionality at all. Those other menus are all statically designed whereas the New sub-menu is dynamically generated.

This probably isn't common, but I found that one of the folders full of music had a very long name. After renaming it to something shorter, Windows happily copied the content. I'm curious how I even created the file that way in the first way. It seems odd that it couldn't copy something that I originally put in there. It might not have been length, as the ...

Yes, it can be achieved.

It is not necessary to defragment the RAM. A simple reboot would have the same effect. Programs that defragment the RAM memory are useless or even damage your system.

You can make NTFS junction with special software. I recommend Link Shell Extension (LSE). It is freeware and easy to use. It also has good documentation with screenshots of all steps.

You need to set the VBoxInternal/CPUM/HostCPUID extradata of the virtual machine. This will make VirtualBox report a different CPUID to the guest.

From the message "The Ordinal 325 could not be located in the dynamic link library SHDOCVW.dll", it is possible that this DLL is corrupted, so maybe other system DLLs as well. Try sfc /scannow to see if it finds anything. If it does, you will need an XP SP3 boot CD to correct the errors.

I have done this without affecting my XP licence, using parted on Ubuntu. It's not exactly what I did, but I would recommend using dd to do a disc-to-disc copy, swap the discs, then make sure everything boots on the new disc. Then swap back and use parted to move/resize the partitions on the new disc in order to use the extra space. There are quicker ways ...

This depends on how Notepad++ was set up.

Only a network device can see all users. That means your router. However, most home routers only show the most basic information, who is connected, and sometimes what IP they are connected to.

You could use Clonezilla for this. David Bauer provides a PDF, "Clonezilla fully unattended," here for the automated backup. I haven't tried the Bauer instructions.
