comment Windows 8.1 app start menu error
Interesting, so is it possible that there is just an issue with msi permissions?

comment Mafia II and Physx woes
I fixed it. Thanks so much. Your post led me to finding this useful article: support.microsoft.com/kb/811881. It mentioned Windows/Installer. I noted that I didn't have the folder. I created it and took ownership. Physx installed straight away.

thanks for your reply. I checked that I have access to the folders and I do. I've updated the original post with a paste of the CCC install log now.

I believe that if you do not activate windows you can not customize things.

Especially when the Wlan or LAN drivers go missing and they turn out to be rare... Been in that spot too many times.

comment How to Add a Context Menu in Windows 7 Library Folders
You could right click > Open folder location before opening console. Kind of a temp solution, but it works.

Sound card onboard or PCI? What software are you using to record?

comment Should I Disable an unused graphic card?
The memory consumption would be tiny as the other two cards are likely the same brand, thus the same driver. There would be not much more overhead on a 3 v 2 card setup if the 3rd is not being used.

comment Could two video cards work at the same time on the same pc?
Yes it can lower your performance, but probably not when plugged in. As it is done to preserve battery life most laptops try to use the internet GPU as often as possible when away from a power source. The internal graphics card will be used when you are doing mundane tasks such as browsing windows etc. Unless it does not recognize that it needs to be switched, which can happen on occasion you will not notice any difference.

comment Is there a way to determine if a user logged in via remote desktop
If multi user remote desktop is setup then you won't get kicked. On a standard consumer PC setup you will be kicked to the lock screen and says "Login in from RANDOM-PC".

comment table of contents in Word not fitting page
Have you got your tabs set on the ruler correctly? Is it a manually created table of contents or one word has generated? Have you got it set as A4 in page layout?
