Concern #1 - Why is my Network Activity Indicator showing "consistent activity" ONLY when I'm logged into this forum, sitting idle, and/or viewing posts. Does this forum run some kind of background script that consistently attempts to collect data? I see an auto-save notice appear...
The information you have provided is too general to provide any further assistance; however, if you are adament about installing Windows 7, you're going to need to provide specific information on your laptop and the media you are using to try and install windows 7. However, I agree with...
Can you view an image by double clicking on it and using the default Windows Photo Viewer? If not, right click the image and choose/select a default program to view all files of that type:
Now, if the previous suggestion works OK, is it just the Adobe Photoshop that is displaying this...
Thanks for the tip. This is really a great little program and has been a life-saver for me (personally); however, I do have two gripes about the administration of this program and they are as follows:
1-There is a "maximum activation" counter for the number of allowable installs (on the same...
Can you be a bit more specific about what you mean by "open links?" Specifically, where would these links reside (on your desktop?) and where would they point to (eg, internal html files, external internet urls, etc)?
I purchased this flash drive from Amazon am I'm happy with its performance (for the price):
Amazon.com: SanDisk Extreme 16 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive SDCZ80-016G-X46: Computers & Accessories
The manufacturer claims read speeds up to 190MB/s and write speeds up to 55MB/s.

Event Viewer One Click Clear - Windows 7 Help Forums
Some say you should never clear the Event Logs but when "I can't see the forrest for the trees", I run this script (as admin).
All kudos to the author!
I'm not an XBox(er)... I'm actually a PS3(er) but I did find this thread where "refreshing account permissions" has helped at times:

From what I understand, Windows 8 OEM installations do not require a COA label (with key identified) because the actual key is supposed to be embedded in the BIOS so (I'm assuming) there should never be a need (or prompt) for a license key when doing a factory restore.
This information is intended for anyone on a budget. First off, let's take a look at the motherboard:
Newegg.com - ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
This $49.95 motherboard has one SATA III port, multiple SATA II ports, and...
Well, you just taught me that a clean install of Windows 8 (legacy) reacts differently; in that, it can create either a 100MB or 350MB system partition based on unknown circumstances. So, before I go off and try to thoroughly investigate why this variance might happen, please confirm that you...
Just curious as to why you are so intent on recovering a small amount of disk space (100MBs)? Also, that partition in question looks like it was created during a Windows 7 installation (and maintained throughout the Win 8 installation) because a legacy "clean install" Windows 8 installation...
