  1. Hi, If one doesn't understand the individual options, it is best to run it at the recommended settings (see lower-left of view below). Anyway, to provide additional information regarding your questions: Wise Cleaner will empty the recycle bin if ticked to do so. See here for an explanation of Jump Lists: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/using-jump-lists-to-open-programs-and-items See here for an explanation of Sun Java: http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/whatis_java.xml Good luck!
  2. LOL back atcha my friend! I am not a Wise employee (LMAO) and I do not have your problem (ROFL). Good luck.
  3. OK, it looks good on the surface but I suspect there is more to see if we dig a bit deeper! Go to Admin Tools> System Information> (System Summary)> Components> Storage> Disks and provide a screenshot of the results for your 3TB USB drive. Also, it would be interesting to see how your special WD passport controller is identified by CrystalDiskInfo. This is a portable download from here: http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html Shizuku Edition [x64 Beta] (zip) Both of my screenshots are attached below.
  4. UPDATE: Here are two additional images that show an external SATA hard drive in a USB docking station:
  5. Do you have any of the WD Passport Security and/or utilities software installed? Can you provide a screenshot of disk management for the drive in question? Also, from an elevated command prompt (type): diskpart (cr) list disk (cr) select disk x (cr) where x is the number of your external drive list partition (cr) Also, can you attache a screenshot of the above result?
  6. The (unidentified) software you are using is looking for a different .NET runtime version. If you need more help, you'll have to provide a lot more detail.
  7. Agreed! Also check your list of installed programs for anything that looks "new" that you didn't intentionally install. If any are found, uninstall them as well.
  8. I'm guessing malware did it! See if this helps with your regedit issue: http://www.techtipsgeek.com/re-enable-registry-editor-disabled-virus/ If not, go here for guided assistance: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
  9. Please do the following to hide the file type extensions: For Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 Start Windows Explorer, you can do this by opening up any folder. Click Tools, and then click Folder Options. Scroll down and then click Folder and search options. Click the View tab. Scroll down until you notice Hide extensions for known file types, check this line by clicking the check box. Click OK
  10. Personally, I have never seen a hard drive partition "just disappear" without any associated activity in that area. Moreover, some partitions are actually "hidden" from view. An example is shown below where a hidden partition is not shown in disk management but is clearly there when the diskpart command is used. So, what were you doing when the partition disappeared? What was on it that needs to be recovered?
  11. Hi Linkin, Thanks for all those helpful suggestions regarding malware detection, identification and removal. As you stated, they may work or they may not (depending on the severity of the infection). However, the one thing that is the most difficult to deal with is the remnants of the damge left behind "after" the malware is removed. Sometimes, the damage is so severe, it can take many days to uncover and fix all the damage (if that is even possible). With that said, my advice is to create a periodic system image to avoid the need to do a clean install just in case the malware and resulting damage cannot be totally removed/repaired. From my experience, more often than not, the malware removal is the easy part but it may take quite a bit of time to fix all the damage it left behind. Cheers, UCanFixIt

  13. Hello Linkin, IMHO, setting (increasing) the pagefile size does nothing to improve system performance. Moreover, for those who do not understand how the pagefile interacts with RAM, I would recommend they maintain the setting to "allow Win to manage my pagefile" so it will shrink and grow as required by the OS. Now, if you look at my screenshot, you will see that I have done just the oppsite of your recommendation. Specifically, I decreased the size to a fixed 100mbs. Here's why: I have adequate RAM (eg 8GBs) to run without a paging file. The only reason I have it set to 100mbs is to allow crash initialization so I can capture crash dumps (if necessary). I have a small SSD and I do not want to reserve an addition 10 GBs of hard drive space (as suggested) that will never be used. In fact, I have never used a large (fixed) paging file in Windows XP, 7, 8 or 8.1 and I have never suffered any ill effects. In fact, I'd really like to set it to zero but I don't like the Event ID that is generated on startup telling me that my crash dump initialization failed. Thanks, UCanFixIt
  14. Hello Linkin, This delay was introduced (by MS) for a reason that was not discussed in your recommendation. I think the posters would be better served if you elaborated on the following: Why did MS introduce the delay (was this intended to work harmoniously with fast startup)? What is the duration of the default delay (is it in seconds or milliseconds)? What are the risks of disabling this default delay (possible occasional crash on cold boot maybe)? Moreover, I have seen this suggestion before as part of an SSD Tweak utility; however, your suggestion makes no mention of any hardware prerequisites. Any comment to that end? In summary, I am not convinced this is a worthwhile venture for all unless you can explain otherwise by answewring the above questions. Thanks, UCanFixIt
  15. I am not sure if you are complaining about your Open GL version being 1.1 or your Minecraft version being 1.4. Anyway, The Minecraft system requirements are here: https://help.mojang.com/customer/portal/articles/325948-minecraft-system-requirements More information here: https://minecraft.net/download

  19. I can access antenaplay.ro without issue. It could have been down when you tried to access it originally so try again.
  20. You can run chkdsk from the repair area of your installation DVD as well: https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=6565#CD
  21. Translated: Desktop shortcuts cured, but the entire system as it was - and remains Your situation is unclear. Please provide additional detail.
