    Windows 10 activation error: 0xC004C003

    When I initially tried to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10, I received the same error message. I couldn't figure out what was going on until I remembered that my Windows 7 was a Home Edition and not the Pro version. That's why it wouldn't activate. I was so set on getting Windows 10 Pro that I...

    Windows Store Doesn't Open.

    Mike, you can do a fresh install on another drive if you have already activated your current version of Windows 10. You can download the Windows 10 media creation tool from MS. Download the correct version. (64 bit or 32 bit ) When running the tool you will have to choose what version (Pro or...

    Resolution

    If logging in is the only issue that you're having with ie11, you can always drag'n'drop the logon link into the address bar and load it from there. Another option; you can right click on the login/signup link and select open, copy link location , or open in new tab.

    Technet subscriptions ending

    At the moment the only other less expensive alternative is Microsoft BizSpark, but they don’t allow everyone to subscribe. Microsoft BizSpark

    Technet subscriptions ending

    Well the masses have begun to speak. There is a petition drive on Change.org that is trying to make a little noise. Their petition states: “Continue TechNet or Create an Affordable Alternative to MSDN”. Maybe it won’t make any difference in Microsoft’s decision, but if they get enough publicity...

    Take that Google Chrome!!!!

    I’m assuming that you are referring to your Comcast account. In the Comcast forums, this very issue was discussed. From what I’ve read, there was one interesting comment that may explain why: Re: Windows 8 Email dropped pop service support. O... - Comcast Help and Support Forums Although...

    Take that Google Chrome!!!!

    Mike, is it possible that the AVG toolbar may have been bundled with something else you installed? Nowadays companies have become increasingly deceptive in how they package additional software with downloads. I have enclosed an image from AVG’s site that shows how to uninstall the toolbar and...

    Windows 8.1 Preview now available.

    That did the trick. Thanks. For whatever reason, I've never had to manually turn it on before. I didn't even bother to check it.

    Windows 8.1 Preview now available.

    I can go to the site but all I see is a message stating: “DotNetNuke Error: - Version 04.09.00” I wasn’t even aware of the problem until the site admin stated that the site did not work in IE11. Since it works for you, maybe we’re missing an update or two. As for the Location Sharing popup...

    Windows 8.1 Preview now available.

    I’ve only seen a couple of bugs with the new IE 11 so far. You can’t turn off Location Services. This is the annoying feature that websites use (via a bubble window) to ask if you are willing to share your current location while visiting their site. The other bug is that a few sites that worked...

    Can a Library folder have a background image?

    Maybe there's one tool that will work. It edits many properties of the libraries folder, but there's not a written list of what those are. Windows 7 Library Tool

    Can a Library folder have a background image?

    How about this: Use Images As Folder Background In Windows 7 [Customization] Never mind…I just read on another forum that this does not work on the libraries folder. Sorry, maybe someone else can offer a tip.

    Deleting Files Of A Particular Extension

    That method probably works just as good as any software, only because the files were not in any one specific or central location.

    Deleting Files Of A Particular Extension

    I wasn’t sure if you had those images organized in a particular directory. There is something else that could help as well. Do another search for tif and look at the bottom of the page and click custom. (while the search is still ongoing) You now have the ability to choose every specific...

    Deleting Files Of A Particular Extension

    Once you have completed converting all images, just do a search from the windows explorer search pane for tif. As long as the images are in the same parent folder, explorer will show them regardless if they are in a different subdirectory. Example: if they are all inside of My Documents, they...

    Windows 8.1 Preview now available.

    In the preview version, Internet Explorer 11 has a little known added feature called the performance dashboard. Although not fully functional, it currently shows 4 functions that can be individualized for each open tab: Frame rate (FPS) Memory (MB) CPU Utilization % Paint Time (msec)...

    Video not smooth, choppy

    Have you checked if hardware acceleration is enabled? This would also include your browser settings as well, since you mentioned YouTube videos. Also check the adobe flash player settings as well. That’s all I can help you with. Hopefully this will resolve some of those issues.

    Even though...

    Yeah, that’s one of the minor annoyances of Windows 8. I’m so used to seeing All Programs, Accessories, etc, in the Start Menu. Since Microsoft refuses to do it my way, I decided to add a shortcut on the desktop that essentially does the same thing. However, I may decide to remove it. After...
