As I know it depend not only on hardware but on driver also. No wonder different drivers give different capabiliies. Beginning with 12.x driver package, the possibility of "spoofing" the MAC address was blocked ... Try Intel driver package older that 12.0. Like 11.x

The display was not set to its native resolution. It was actually 1360x768 and not 1280x768. I checked under 'system' for the specs and it told me what the display resolution was set to, not what it was natively. I finally discovered the native resolution not by looking up the hardware details (as I probably should have) but by poking about in the graphics ...

I may have found a great way. Check your WinSAT (Windows Experience Index) logs. Even Windows 10 still does this under the hood. The logs can be found here C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore Can also be fun to see the history over the years, through many upgrades.

For posterity's sake, I solved this issue by reinstalling Windows 10 after reformatting. This was not preferred but I was unable to find an alternative. If anyone has a possible solution to this problem that does not include loss of data, please answer and I'll set your answer as correct.

I've never seen this behavior. I'm not sure what would be the cause. But usually, it's something in the local profile or due to add-ons in Outlook. It is also possible it could be any anti-malware services they are running. I would run the recovery assistant tool:https://diagnostics.outlook.com/#/?env=ExRCA See if it finds and fixes anything. If it ...

You can also use PowerShell: Get-ChildItem | Where-Object {$_.Name -ne 'Target folder'} | Move-Item -Destination 'Target folder' The first command in the pipeline (Get-ChildItem) gets all the entries in the current folder. The second filters by name, passing everything to the next command except items named Target folder. That final command moves the item ...

If you want to "Updgrade" in the future, I'd go with a different approach: Do a full backup of your current system (using a boot cd, with a program of your choice) and save it external (eg. USB-Stick or DVD). Then, do the Upgrade to Windows 10. Make a backup of this system, too. Then put the first backup back on your PC. As soon as you want to start using ...

You could clone or image your Windows 7 drive, then use one of them for the Windows 10 upgrade. Make sure the new Windows 10 upgrade is validated. Then, that drive can be set aside for later use, and you can slip in Windows 7 or Windows 10 at will.

The "magic" happens while activating it, so downloading an installation disk or whatever is not enough. It has to be installed and activated successfully for you to receive the free upgrade. If you don't activate it before the offer expires, you'll have to pay.

Moving tool inside a Windows version makes them harder to update (part of regular Windows Updates). So Microsoft never bundles tools like Microsoft Message Analyzer or rocess Exlorer into Windows. You have to download and install Microsoft Message Analyzer from the download center.

The shield icon indicates that a program may only be started using elevated privileges (read: administrator access). This is part of the User Account Control (UAC).

Batch Script - Subtracting (or adding) Days from Current Day Simplified You can do this using a batch script that sets the date variable and subtracts 1 day (or any number of days for that matter) from the current date which the batch script is executed.

WinGate will do this, and is free for 10 concurrent users.

For this I would recommend Proxifier. Proxifier intercepts outbound connections made by Windows applications (I think it also supports Mac) and diverts them through a proxy or chain of proxies. It will allow you also to choose which applications to intercept. It supports basic RFC1929 authentication (cleartext) over SOCKS5. It's also in current ...

Here is a proper recursive command line solution using only native cmd.exe commands that actually works.

No you will not be able to achieve that as this would have to be programmed inside the boot loader before any one OS is started, so I don't think that's possible unless you're a BIOS programmer.

The Windows API (which the installers use) has a function which can be used to determine which locale the system is configured to use. The IP address has no role in this whatsoever. Most installers do ask you for language during install if you choose the "Custom Install" or "Expert Install" or something similar. I daresay the program itself must also have ...

Your computer isnt shutting down. It is most likely hibernating, which saves the state of your computer, then turns it off.

This would be an impossible task, power consumption can vary wildly dependent on system load and power saving settings.

ReFS will log an event to the System event log. You can create a custom event view and filter by source, selecting the ReFS source.

Your script sets variable "file" to only the filename (no path). Then you try to open the filename (no path). On my system, I received a "The system cannot find the file..." error. This leads me to believe that in your script, the find file line uses the bat file's current path, but the read file does not. My guess it is because of the "*" in the find ...

Windows considers the clock a high-security setting (due to its use in TLS, Kerberos, and Event Logs) – allowing to change it over the network, anonymously, might not be wise. That said, access to change the clock is granted by SeSystemTimePrivilege, which can be given to arbitrary users via Group Policy or directly via secpol.msc (under Local Policies → ...

If you look at your motherboard specs here, it supports non-ECC/un-buffered DDR3 RAM at 800, 1066, and 1333(Overclocked) speeds with a max capacity of 8GB.

Well, this is awkward. Rebooting solved my problem. It seems like I did the right steps, but without reboot it wouldn't work. Maybe this can be of help for someone else in the future.
