comment In windows 7, is it possible to extend a logical partition using space, freed up from shrinking the windows(primary) partition? If yes, how?
It is possible to use Minitools as well.

comment How can I tell If a DNS server is replying authoritatively?
You could use nslookup tool (available with Windows). It is a command line based tool. Just open a cmd in an elevated command prompt, type nslookup domainname.xxx and press enter. Your DNS server (local) will display the IP address related to the domain. This is the DNS look up method. You could also use ultratools.com (tools provided).

comment Can't hibernate my Windows 8 system (Dell n5520 laptop)
Sorry for the delayed reply: If you still need help please try a diagnostic boot: Click Start > Type MSCONFIG > Press Enter (you could also run it as amin). In the General Tab select Diagnostic Start > click APPLY and OK > REBOOT. It is better if you could send a dump file (uploaded to a sharing site and the link). You could also adjust power options in order to stop hybrid boot if you have not already configured general hibernation. Thanks!

comment Windows 8 Hyper-V Client Backup Solution
Windows 8? Have you tried: hypervbackup.codeplex.com. There are small small issues. You can also try Unitrends (free for 2 VMs). You can collaborate PowerShell with Windows built in backup to take snapshots.

comment External hard drive broke after using on Ubuntu
Did you save any files when using with Ubuntu? Did you run a Windows Disk check? Boot into safemode and plug in the device and run a disk check via Windows explorer (Disk Properties > Tools) or using a command prompt (chkdsk /f /r). You can use something like Minitools for convenience. May be there is an issue with partition table.

comment Adobe Flash fullscreen colours are shifted
5 is just a fail safe option. You can download the same from get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions. The last comment clearly indicates that there is an issue with the Flash Player or browser itself. I also would like you to try the debugger version instead of the regular version. It can be obtained from: download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/11/…. Make sure there are no issues with hardware acceleration (turn off by opening Flash Player settings (left most option). Finally its the time to backup and re-install the browser and test again

comment Cannot Install Windows 7 SP1 (64-bit)
As swapyonubuntu recommended, you should follow the kb and try the update readiness which is vital plus an sfc /scannow with a repair installation. You should also try: support.microsoft.com/kb/971058. During the installation, make sure your Antivirus suite is turned off. An ISO image can also be obtained to try upgrading separately.

comment How do you install .net4 on a Server 2008 r2 machine through psremoting in powershell?
Hope you are using ps 3.0 and server 2008 r2 systems are up to date with sp1. By the way, you can have a look at calegp.com/?p=247&cpage=1#comment-177.

comment Can I select the adapter to bridge separate for every network adapter in VMware?
I apologize for that sincerely. If you already have the vmnetcfg.exe, that's it. Uploaded file is the same. Fetched from VMWare Workstation (both 8 and 9 were tried and found both compatible. Old versions of player could be compatible as well). Corrected the download issue. Good Luck!
