    Can't Disconnect External Drive?

    The backup has finished and I'm trying to safely remove it. Says it's still in use when I know for a fact it's been done yesterday. Yeah, someone told me an AV is probably the culprit. Darn McAfee, lol. Oh well, apparently unplugging as long as it's not writing does nothing...

    Can't Disconnect External Drive?

    No nothing like that. I used Windows Backup to do it...the default backup software on my Windows 7 computer by Microsoft themselves, which reminds me, I'm putting my system specs in my signature since it'll help people assist me in the future. Can you or anyone else assist me in this any further?

    Can't Disconnect External Drive?

    Why is it that so many Western Digital products suck at what they do? Every time I tried using a storage device by WD it's been acting up. One time a drive wasn't even being detected by a computer (or other computers I've tried it on) and now this new 1 TB external drive is not wanting to...

    Windows 7 Quarantined Spyware.Keylogger

    My Symantec AV has quarantined a file that was a spyware.keylogger kind of malicious file. I know quarantining means to lock up a malicious threat so it doesn't spread, but, in this particular case, does quarantining mean its stopping it from doing what its name implies? Logging...

    Updates on Shut Down

    Why does my “1 of 1” updates take at least 24+ hours to finish? Keep in mind these updates have never finished and I was always forced to hold down the power button to shut off my computer… Also what’s even weirder, is that the one time I shut down my computer and it did this kind of...

    Disable Dell Automatic Software?

    How do I stop the Dell DataSafe Local Backup, and Dell Support Center from always randomly trying to do things in the middle of using my computer? Basically, Dell DataSafe keeps telling me to upgrade when I want it to shut up, and Dell Support Center always tries to run something (a framed black...

    Constantly Backing Up

    I know of the option to back up your data on an external hard drive, at intervals, but in the past few years I've heard of "constantly backing up" which is basically that whenever something is downloaded on your computer, an exact copy is made on the external drive. All downloaded...

    Why Do Half of Windows Updates Fail?

    About that much, seemingly, regardless of the version one's running. So many updates fail on a regular basis it's not even funny. More ridiculous, recently I've been noticing Windows 7 doesn't even automatically check all the updates it claims are important. Yes, I have it set to install...

    CRT Anti-Glare Filters

    Lol @ my Sony 17" Trinitron CRT then. But, if I can use that and save spending money, and not have to figure out where to put it in this small room since I don't plan on just giving it away like that...not my good ol' CRT :(, then I'll just keep using it. Of course, I have my laptop as option 2...

    CRT Anti-Glare Filters

    Well one, I like the look of the monitor in general where it is and it makes no sense to throw it away when it's still good, and I'm not really obsessing about that, since I've been convinced already that radiation isn't an issue. I just asked if that statement above was true. And LCD monitors...

    CRT Anti-Glare Filters

    Although CRTs do not emit harmful radiation (or anything harmful for that matter), is the claim true that, nonetheless, there is more emission from the sides and back of the monitor? I suppose this is so since the glass screen is the greatest shield on the thing, and because the sides have all...

    Ease of Access

    I edited some settings in the keyboard section of the "Ease of Access" area on my W7 operating system. I was wondering how I can revert to the default settings there (since I don't know what they were), even it if means reverting everything in Ease of Access to the default settings, such as for...

    Is This OK?

    I know this is random to a W7 forum, but I'm doing it less often. I'm just used to getting good answers from people here as they're very helpful and nice. :D See, sometimes I'll brush my teeth (and floss) and...I occasionally have this urge to drink some fruit juice afterwards. Now, would I...

    Plug & Play

    Never had problems with Dell and I'm choosing that brand just because my other stuff (mainly computer) are Dell too. I like matching stuff.

    Windows Magnifier Default Options?

    1. What's your view set on though? This isn't in the settings, but in the "view tab" 2. Really? I could've swore only the mouse pointer box was checked, but I'll take your word.

    CRT Anti-Glare Filters

    Wow, awesome response! Thanks for that bit. Before I even read it I was thinking not even dealing with the filters pretty much ( said after 1998? I think this Sony Trinitron was made at around that year, so I can't be sure if it underwent the regulation you speak of. But, it is...

    Plug & Play

    Are mice and keyboards plug-and-play for laptops (automatically detected and ready to use)? Or will it require driver installation of any sort? If it helps I have a Dell laptop and will be buying a Dell keyboard and mice...

    CRT Anti-Glare Filters

    How would that null the point if the filters supposed to be anti-radiation? If what you said was true then it'd hardly be any different than tinted glass. If the filter's anti-radiation, then they make it come with a "grounding wire" (found this out after I started the topic), but I'm not sure...
