The driver rtl8192Ce.sys is pointing to a bad virtual address (uninitialized garbage or freed memory) which is causing the crash.

Install latest one (year 2013) from here: Realtek NDIS Driver. I would also update BIOS, ...

A small Windows program which can be used via command line or GUI is ControlMyMonitor from Nirsoft. It sends DDC commands to the monitor and can (depending on the monitor) change brightness, turn off/on, change the input source etc. To trigger commands, I use it in combination with EventGhost which can react to various event sources (including built-in ...

For me it was the following setting in the performance options: "Use visual styles on windows and buttons" After A LOT of trying out of combinations, it boiled down to this one setting. If I disable it, it doesn't matter what else is checked: I get tearing. Sounds strange and I still think it can't be, but it works reliably.

Robocopy will do it with the /A-:E switch (E for encryption "attribute") - but not "on the fly": it does it as an (integrated) two-step process: first it does the copy (or move), then it removes the encryption (sort of like doing a copy followed by cipher /d. So its slow. But I guess you'd spend the time anyway, so if you prefer to do ...

It is in the screen saver settings. Windows sets it to default 1 min. These settings are not readily shown on the new Windows 10 interface. So just hit the windows key and type "screen saver" and then select the 'Turn screen saver on or off' and change the timer and type to your desired setting.

Your harddisk has a real high amount of reallocated sectors (attributes 5 and 196). Modern harddisks have a number of "spare" sectors they can use if a sector goes bad. They do that by reallocating the sector, which means they update an internal map that leaves the bad sector where it is, and uses one of the spare sectors instead. The fact that ...

Windows has no migration structure anything like macOS has.

The Alt key on the right for typing special characters in some languages is called AltGr and is completely different from the normal Alt key.

The answer is no. You can only install a licensed copy of windows in only one computer. Microsoft's privacy policy is quite strict about this. When you install windows with a product key in one PC, the installation will be locked there and pass the lifetime there. So to install windows 7 again, you have to purchase a new product key with a windows disk image ...

This should be closed as 'opinion-based', but before that happens I would like once and for all to say that smart upgrading requires knowledge of what the computer is doing. Use the Task Manager and the Resource Monitor and Process Explorer: See which resources are stretched to the limit among CPU, RAM and disk. Then improve one element only and check again. ...

This may get closed as 'opinion-based' but before that happens - you need both. 4GB RAM is really too small these days, I'd call 8GB minimum & 16 starts to get comfortable. An SSD will vastly improve your throughput, but don't skimp. Get at least 512GB or you'll be constantly trying to figure out which things you can afford to delete. Dual booting has no ...

I fixed the same problem by setting MANPATH to an empty string (MANPATH=) and then troubleshooting its original contents. It turned out that the entry to /usr/share/man started with a double slash. On Unix multipla shlashes anywhere in the path are a no-up. On Windows (and apparently CygWin) the double slash at the beginning of a path denotes a network ...

Based on the ideas in @gronostaj's answer, I just created a small tool for this purpose: Reboot Now! It works by writing the UEFI BootNext variable, and it triggers a reboot. Thus you can easily reboot to HDD2, an USB flash drive, or even to the BIOS Setup, directly from Windows.

If you uninstalled the software, it's not at fault... unless some errant process is still running in the background, perhaps a left-over service or malware, from malicious installation. Use Task Manager to see what is using so much CPU time. Also check for malware with your antivirus suite, e.g. Defender.

BitLocker is too restrictive and problematic. I would recommend using instead a third-party product such as VeraCrypt. You may encrypt the entire disk D, or just a part of the disk in the format of a file, or even encrypt and use what looks like the unallocated space at the end of the physical disk. You can schedule a VeraCrypt mount command for the disk on ...

You need to install Windows 7 from a boot media. While installing, reformat the disk. If you need to save data, use a Linux Live CD or USB to copy away the data before starting. I can't tell you where to find Windows 7 install media, so I hope you still have it.
