    How to extend the taskbar onto a secondary monitor with Windows 7

    Have you looked into "Dual Monitor Taskbar"? It's specifically designed for Windows 7 and it's open source. Never tried this application myself, but after doing some research, it seems to do the trick.

    To skip disk checking, press any key in # seconds

    In order to clear the "dirty" message without the use of chkdsk you will have to move all your data from that drive, format it, and then move it back. This is an extremely lengthy process though, and may not be worth it if you're not getting any errors other than the "skip disk checking" message...

    The message you should have received would have indicated that Microsoft (not Google) ended its support for Windows 7. This has been the case for a while now, and if you'd like to update your features, you will first have to upgrade to Windows 10.

    Why don't pop up blockers work anymore??? Any advert blockers?

    Quite true. There will always be some new clever way advertisers use to circumvent blockers. It has created a surprisingly large need for quality ad-block software. In this case, though, a simple ad-blocking extension should suffice in cutting out 80-90% of the ads mentioned above.

    The popup blocker is used to prevent new windows from opening without your permission. In order to prevent the on-page ads, consider getting an ad-blocking extension.

    Missing operating system after rebooting

    How long have you been using this Windows version? Hiren's Boot CD PE is not a general-purpose OS and should only be used for deployment and recovery. It's based on Windows 10 PE x64 which automatically stops running and reboots while clearing all it's data 72 hours after activation...

    Missing operating system after rebooting

    It's likely that this was the result of a faulty BIOS configuration or damaged BCD (Boot Configuration Data). First, try accessing BIOS by pressing your computer's BIOS key during startup (usually Esc, F12, or Del). Once there, find the "Setup Default" option or "Reset to Default", enable it...

    No Longer Record .WAVs

    Hi, Are you recording using an external mic or something that was built-in? You mentioned you can no longer record "on all but one programme." Which one works? Is it possible that your mic properties were somehow screwed up? This would explain why only one program works since the mic may no...
