comment windows keyboard language changed unexpectedly
Thanks Elazaron. We deleted the problem language. You might want to change your answer for future visitors to show how to remove a language that isn't needed. This will get you more up votes.

comment External LAN access through 3G modem internet
I think the 3rd sentence needs to be refined: "I want to access on machine of this LAN (my home security cameras server) through this internet point."

comment Hard disk showed incorrect size; chkdsk replaced invalid with default security ID; what now?
You should be able to boot your PC up, and choose to skip the chkdsk, I think. ("Press any key to skip check disk" maybe?)

What machine are you trying to connect to from your desktop? How is your desktop connected to that machine? Is it over a WAN? Is it part of a domain?

comment How can I merge two unallocated spaces?
The Parted Magic ISO is no longer available for free. You have to download it from the partedmagic.com website for $4.99, instead of using UNetbootin, and choose Diskimage instead of Distribution, above.

comment How to improve boot performance of PCs with Windows OS
Soluto is fine. I've been using it for about 18 months without a hassle, and no security issues. Note: if you uninstall Soluto, you lose all the performance tweaks you made with Soluto.

comment Photoshop CS6 not releasing memory after closing open files
Edit > Purge > (all options) are greyed out, except for Video Cache. Choosing this option does not reduce the RAM used by PS. Task Manager shows that PS is using 539MB, while RAM Map only shows it is using 74MB, without explaining where the other 465MB is coming from.

Hi Paul. See this image (i112.photobucket.com/albums/n180/SRD001/screenshots/excel.png). It isn't producing the expected sequence.

Unfortunately No Add-ons results in the same symptom - no address bar, and no ability to select it in Toolbars.
