    Windows 10 keeps blocking trusted program

    If you browse to the files location in Explorer and right click on the file and choose Properties is there an unblock checkmark towards the bottom of the General tab? If so select it and hit OK, then try running the app again.

    Cant change public to private Xfinity unidetified network

    Comcast guest WiFi has a tendency to .. well just plain suck. The router probably needs rebooted and the guest network will start working for you again, and then stop at some point randomly. Kind of the nature of the beast.

    Adobe photoshop 4.0

    No, Adobe will require more of your hard earned money to get a newer version.

    How to get application to work in Windows 10

    I believe you would have to use some better emulation software than the normal freebies which are Virtual Box and Hyper-V. As @Neemobeer mentioned most issues are permission related, and sometimes simple registry keys that do not exist in Windows 10 that 7 had that simply aren't there and are...

    wdf_violation BSOD

    "Driver Updaters" are generally bad practice to use, and most are a joke. Always get your drivers from your computer manufacturer, or the manufacturer of the hardware in question. Can you also attach the DMP file (zipped please)?

    How to get application to work in Windows 10

    Virtualization was my first suggestion however now that I know more details you would have to have VM software and supported hardware that would let you seamlessly pass through the USB controller I believe for that audio equipment to be happy. I would be willing to help you via Discord (we...

    Windows 7 Compatible Laptop

    You would not want to game inside of a Virtual Machine no, but it's perfectly fine to have on your system for legacy applications and won't affect any apps on your main system. I have VM's for everything from DOS, Win3.11, 95, 98, 2000, NT4, Windows 7/8/Vista. They only use resources when your...

    Windows 7 Compatible Laptop

    If your program is so old it only works on Windows 7, and you plan on using it long term, Virtualization is the way to go. As far as performance, a VM with enough cores allocated will run it better than an old Windows 7 machine ever would.

    Adding a USG (Ubiquiti Security Gateway) to LAN

    Most Comcast devices these days support bridge mode as well, you can enable it (or have Comcast help you enable it), and it will just act as a modem and push all traffic to your USG.

    LAN shares not accessible

    Make sure the network location is set as a Private network: Verify that Network discovery and File and printer sharing are enabled for Private networks: On your shared folder that you want with no password you may need to add Everyone and Guest to at least read access on the share. Even so...

    Upgrading my pc build

    To be honest your GTX 1070 is a pretty powerful card, I would wait until nVidia's next generation instead of buying an RTX card. This way you skip the generation of cards that really didn't perform like everyone thought and maybe they'll get ray tracing performance usable by the next...

    Upgrading my pc build

    It's always good to have more storage, you can install least used programs on old spinner drives along with data like movies, music etc. I recommend sticking with good brands such as Samsung, Western Digital, and even Adata if you want to save a few bucks (I've had a good experience with all 3)...

    Upgrading my pc build

    Also most modern motherboards have multiple SATA ports, and usually only one gets sacrificed when you plug in a nvme m.2 module. Should leave you with at least 3 free, unless you have some kind of odd or low end motherboard. Looks like your motherboard has a total of 6 SATA ports.

    Upgrading my pc build

    Well it depends, what games are you looking to play? I wouldn't be able to give you good advice unless I know what you plan on playing/doing with your system :) Otherwise you would most likely be over/under-spending

    You have a pretty decent system, I'd say an nvme m.2 ssd or better graphics card.
