Bosaldbof reacted to TuomasHeino in How to do Access Database repair?
I have an Access database which was copied to an USB device and has become corrupt. I am getting the following error message: The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'Databases'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly. (Microsoft JET Database Engine). I have attempted to repair the database, run the JETCOMP.exe, import the data from another Access database, SQL Server, Excel; and continue to get the same error. I do not need the forms, queries, reports or macro's, only the table data. I am looking for a reliable company to look at the database and extract the data or software to get the data out. Thanks.

Bosaldbof reacted to wisecleaner_admin in How to speed up your PC
Lots of members ask the same question in our forum - My computer run very slow, how can I solve it.
Actually, it is easy, just run Wise Care 365, and click some buttons.
1) Click Check Up Now to check up your system, then click Fix Now to clean system.
2) Click System Tuneup-->System Optimizer-->Optimize. If you want to restore settings, just click System Default.
3) Click System Tuneup-->Startup Manager-->Startup, disable useless startup programs.
4) Click System Tuneup-->Startup Manager-->Services, in this tab, you will see four suggestions:
Enable - System often use this service, we suggest you enable it.
Disable - This service can be disabled safely.
Keep - Maintain this service current status, you don't need to change it. If you confirm this service is useless, you don't need it, you can disable it.
No suggestion - We don't give any suggestion for third-party services, if you confirm the service is useless, you don't need to run it when PC starts, you can disable it.
Anyway, you can restore your operation in Records tab.
5) Click System Tuneup-->Context Menu, disable context menu of third-party programs.
6) Click System Tuneup-->Disk Defrag, it will spend long time, suggest you just defrag drive C.
7) Click System Tuneup-->Registry Defrag, be careful, it need to reboot your system.
8) If your PC still slow, you can try Wise PC 1stAid, the last one icon "Running speed of PC is too slow", when you reboot system, you will be shocked , your PC just like a new one.
Be careful, before you use this function, you must to read its Notice carefully. Because, this operation will disable most IE plugins/extensions, most third-party services, most startup programs. It means some programs which you installed, will not run well.
If all above steps cannot speed up your PC, I think your PC's hardware are out of date.
In this case, increase your physical memory to 4GB may be useful.
Bosaldbof reacted to Rosika in general question concerning dual-boot WIN and ubuntu
As far as the topic of Linux is concerned I have a question of a more general nature.
I´ve got two computers, a PC and a laptop.
The PC is a Lenovo H520e and the laptop is a medion Akoya E6222.
The PC has WIN8.1 Home (64bit) and the laptop has WIN7 (64bit) as operating system.
What I want to do is turn both the PC and the laptop into dual-boot systems.
The second OS should be Linux Ubuntu, preferably 14.04LTS (64bit).
My question now is:
Could there be any danger or risk for the respective hardware when using a Linux-driven
system on a PC/laptop that originally was sold with a pre-installed version of Microsoft´s operating-system?
I mean is Linux alright for existing motherboard,RAM, fans etc?
I just want to be on the safe side before applying any changes.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Bosaldbof reacted to donut in What Security Measures Are Available to the Average Computer User?
When looking to secure your computer, you'll want to consider a few different factors: the security of your data against malware and hackers and the physical security of your machine. Operating systems come with basic levels of security and you can use free software to add additional security like data encryption and network firewalls. These options are available to any user, meaning you don't need to budget for expensive business licenses and complex installations.
o There are a few different types of security software available to protect your computer against malicious software, or "malware." These programs range from spyware scanners and firewalls to anti-virus programs and full security suites like Comodo Internet Security, ZoneAlarm Internet Security and AVG Internet Security. The suites have many features tied into one program, so one suite is generally enough to protect your computers. If you want to use individual programs for each function so you have more control, you can download any anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall program you like. Many of these options are completely free for anyone, so you don't need to purchase a company version with multiple licenses, which can be pretty pricey.
Encryption and Passwords
o You may know that you can enable a password on your user account, but this only goes so far. You can add an additional layer of security by enabling a secondary password through BIOS. This password will be required even to start the computer and access different settings. Enable this via the "Security" tab of your BIOS. You can also encrypt your data to make it harder for people to access your data. This protects your data even if someone else steals your physical hard drive. Use free software like TrueCrypt, AxCrypt or Cloudfogger (links in Resources) to encrypt your hard drive and all that data on it.
o For any computer connected to the Internet, network security is very important. Enabling your router's firewall prevents incoming and outgoing traffic from being hijacked, and enabling your wireless network passwords prevents random strangers from accessing your account and thus any computers on your network. Access your router's control panel to enable these options. Remember to use a strong password of numbers, letters and symbols, and avoid using any personal information like names or birthdays. You can also use Windows Firewall to select how strict your firewall is depending on what type of network you're using. Alternatively, if you're a little more tech savvy, you can use replacement router firmware like Tomato or DD-WRT, though what you can use depends on the model of router you have. This upgraded firmware has plenty of options and additional security as well as greater end-user control.
o All the digital security in the world means little if a thief can walk away with your computer under their arm. A few methods of physical security exist to help combat or at least deter computer theft. Computer locks make use of a durable cable and lock and vary by whether you are using a laptop or desktop. Laptop locks tend to lock a laptop to a sturdy object with one cable, whereas a desktop lock will let you lock up to three devices -- like towers and monitors -- together. Companies like Kensington and Targus manufacture locks for all types of devices (see Resources). You can also use proximity detectors that sound an alarm whenever your computer is moved out of a specific area without your permission. If there are any lockers in your building you can use them to store your computer overnight when you aren't at work.
Bosaldbof reacted to Linkin in How to Choose the Right RAM to Upgrade RAM of Windows PC?
Instead of buying a new computer, adding RAM is often the most cost-effective upgrade you can make to speed up a sluggish computer.
You may see a lot of similar articles on the internet, but they all seem a little bit complicated for normal users.
Follow the next easy steps to upgrade your RAM:
1. Check how many memory slots the motherboard has
Most computer motherboards have two, three, or four memory slots. Some higher end motherboards have as many as six, or possibly even eight memory slots. This is the total number of slots available. Unless you are using a very old computer, you will have to change the RAM. If there is one more slot for adding one memory, you don’t have to reinstall the system.
2. Find Out the Maximum RAM Capacity for Your System
Determine if Windows is 32-bit or 64-bit. Download Wise Care 365, click Hardware Overview in System Monitor, you will see the info of your operating system.
32-bit can support up to 4 GB of RAM. In fact, 32-bit Windows is limited to accessing 3.2GB of that 4GB).
64-bit can support up to 128 GB of RAM or even more than that.
3. Find Out the maximum RAM capacity for your mainboard
In Wise Care 365, check the Mainboard in System Monitor, you will see your mainboard type. Google it to find the spec of it. You will see the maximum RAM capacity for your mainboard.
4. Find out the right type of RAM for your computer
Call me preachy but please first know if you are buying a RAM for your laptop or desktop. In most cases, they are different. Most motherboards accept only one type of RAM, if you're buying new RAM, you're probably going to make your life a lot easier by buying the exact same model as you currently have in your machine, but they don’t have to be the same brand. Check the Memory info in System Monitor and buy the RAM that has the same speed and memory type so that it will be compatible with your computer.
Bosaldbof reacted to donut in Microsoft Windows Installer Error 1320
The Microsoft Windows Installer Error 1320 may occur when you attempt to install software on your computer. For example, when you attempt to install the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences software by IBM, you may receive an error message similar to "Error 1320. The specified path is too long.
C:\ProgramData\Application Data\SPSS." Several other programs that you attempt to install or uninstall an application may also produce the MSI 1320 Error.
MSIExec.exe and InstMsi.exe Functions
· When installing the SPSS software, the MsiExec.exe and InstMsi.exe functions return the MSI 1320 error if the installation folder named INSTALLDIR is mapped to a network drive.
Path names that are too long will also return MSI 1320 errors. For example, if you work with Visual Studio and you place projects in directories other than the hard drive, commonly "C," this is likely to occur.
DOS SUBST Command
· If you placed the INSTLLDIR folder in a substituted drive using the DOS SUBST command, an MSI 1320 may be returned. The DOS SUBST command is used to associate a path with the letter of a virtual or physical drive. Errors will occur if you use the DOS SUBST command on a network drive.
Temporarily Modify Shortcut
· Modify the C:\ProgramData directory by removing the Application Data shortcut before you install the software. You'll have to show hidden files to locate the shortcut. To do this, navigate to the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." Click "Appearance and Personalization," and then click "Folder Options." Click the "View" tab, and then click "Show hidden files and folders" located under "Advanced Settings." Click "OK." Drag the "Application Data" shortcut to your Desktop. If that's not possible, rename the folder to unlock it first, and then drag the "Application Data" shortcut to your Desktop. Place the shortcut back to the C:\ProgramData directory after you finish installing the software.
Warnings and Considerations
· Some of your settings may not be restored after you remove and then replace the Application Data shortcut. Workaround this by selecting the "Do not show hidden files and folders" option in the Folder and Search Options category. You'll also want select the "Hide protected operating systems files" option to restore your original settings.
Contact the software or hardware manufacturer of the software or hardware you're trying to install to get the appropriate support. Visiting the manufacturer's website and posting a query on a forum may lead to a faster result.
Bosaldbof reacted to MrBill in Two questions!
Both these questions are for my desktop system running the latest Windows 10 and WDC version 8.91:
- One of the parameters in "Common Cleaner" changes the value of the Win10 notification icon in the Systray. Does anyone know which one this might be?
- Often before I shut down in the evening I run the Puran Defrag in DOS mode. One of the parameters in "Common Cleaner" changes some Puran parameter, causing the defrag to completely skip over the "Optimizing Directories" and "Puran Intelligent Optimizer" steps. I've played with this quite a bit but have not been able to pin down exactly which item is causing this problem, although I'm fairly sure the answer lies in the "Useless Files in Computer, Windows System" group. Can anyone help?

Bosaldbof reacted to donut in Computer Freezing: Steps to Fix It
Most "freezes" are just software lockups, often limited to just one program, although they can cause the entire system seemingly to hang. The remainder are caused by hardware. Failing power supplies can cause all sorts of trouble, for example, including freezes. Memory is also a frequent culprit. Reseating the memory module fixes memory-related problems one-third of the time on desktop systems and one-quarter of the time on laptop systems, according to studies done by Microsoft.
Is the Whole System Freezing?
Press "Alt" and "F4." This may close the program without any further problems.
Press the "Alt" and "Tab" keys together to switch to another program. If you are unable to see any change when you press "Alt" and "Tab," then try to bring up the Task Manager by pressing the left "Control" key, the left "Shift" key and "Escape." If that key combination doesn't open the Task Manager, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Del," then press the down arrow on the keyboard four times to highlight "Start Task Manager." Press "Enter."
Determine the problem area. If your mouse cursor moves freely, then you have a locked up program and you need to find the process that's hogging the CPU. If the whole system seems jerky, and you can hear or see your hard drive being continuously active, then you are facing memory exhaustion.
Go to the "Processes" tab. Sort by CPU or Memory as determined. If your mouse is functional, click the headers to sort the appropriate column. Otherwise press "Tab" to move forward or "Shift" and "Tab" to move back through the controls until you get to the header. Then use the arrow keys to select the header you want to sort by and press "Enter."
Select the item at the top of the list, which should be the problem program. If your mouse doesn't work, use "Tab" or "Shift" and "Tab" to navigate to the list.
Click the "End Process" button, or press "Alt" and "E." Then click "End Process" in the confirmation box or press "Spacebar" on the keyboard. If none of this worked, your computer may be totally frozen due to a component problem.
Power down the computer and unplug it from the power source.
For a desktop computer, open up the computer case, consulting your owner's manual as necessary, to locate and reseat the memory modules. Pull the retaining clip back from the memory module and pull the module upward out of its socket. Push the memory into the slot while pulling the retaining clips gently toward the memory until it is fully seated. To reseat it, make sure the notch is aligned with the memory slot.
For laptops, locate your memory, which is usually found behind a labeled door on the underside. Unscrew the door. Pull the retaining clips back from the memory module and pull the module toward you to a 45-degree angle. Then pull the module straight out of its socket. Push the memory into the slot at a 45-degree angle. Rotate the module gently until the retaining clips are securely fastened, and the module is fully seated. To reseat it, make sure the notch is aligned with the memory slot.
Unscrew the retaining screw on the faceplate of the video memory card, if present in your desktop computer, and push the latch at the rear of the card toward the slot. Pull the card straight out, then push the card straight into the slot until the latch reengages. Screw the faceplate into the case. This does not apply to laptops.
Reseat any other add-in cards present in the desktop computer.
Check the temperature. If your computer supports temperature monitoring, use the vendor-supplied utility to check temperatures. Anything above 140 degrees Fahrenheit should be considered suspect.
Identify faulty fans. Any fans not moving under load with high heat showing should be immediately replaced in desktops. If your laptop has a faulty fan, you need to have it professionally serviced.
Add more cooling fans to your desktop computer. Fan width is measured in millimeters. Common sizes are 80, 92 and 120 millimeters. You need to purchase fans that fit into your computer case's fan mounts. If your computer came with a jumper diagram for the motherboard, locate the fan connectors, usually labeled "FAN1" to "FAN4." Determine if the fan connectors have three pins or four pins. Buy additional fans with the same number of pins as those already in your case have. If you can't determine the number of pins, get fans that include "Molex" adapters to connect to your power supply.
Start by mounting fans into the front of the case, blowing toward the back. If the problem persists, add more fans to the rear of the case, blowing outward.
Laptop users can purchase a cooling pad that comes with extra cooling fans and typically connects via USB.
Add a heat spreader to the memory modules in your desktop. This does not apply to laptop users. Open up the computer case, consulting your owner's manual as necessary, to locate the memory modules. Pull the retaining clip back from the memory module and pull the module upward out of its socket. If the heat spreader's manufacturer provided directions, follow them. Otherwise, remove the adhesive backing from one-half of the heat spreader. Apply the heat spreader to the memory module. Apply the other half of the heat spreader, ensuring that the screw holes or the clip slots are aligned. Screw or clip it together. Return the module to your computer case, as when reseating it in Section 2, Step 1.
Ensure your computer is plugged into a high-quality surge suppressor, not just a power strip.
Try the computer in different outlets around the house, especially those on another electrical circuit.
Plug the computer into an uninterruptible power supply, or UPS.
Connect your desktop's internal components to different power supply cables. The internal power supply has several power converters in it, so connecting your computer's internal components to different cables or cable bundles can spread the power load to help avoid under-voltage problems.
Tips & Warnings· Failures caused by mechanical or electrical problems inside the case often lead to random computer freezes and reboots. This class of problems is almost always caused by vibrations. If hitting your desk makes your computer lock up, this is probably the problem.
· Modern CPUs have a thermal cut-off inside them that turns off the computer to prevent critical damage, but other components do not. Video cards, memory and the motherboard control chips, often called the north bridge, can all cause computer freezes. Signs are freezes that occur only when your computer is under high load or during heavy 3-D or video decoding.
· Low voltage, unclean power, and overloaded circuits can all cause temporary, sporadic problems with your computer. Unclean power and overloaded circuits will seem random. Low voltage is usually be tied to specific actions like starting to play games or watch movies. With these problems, your power supply may not be functioning properly. You may need to replace the power supply.
· Never open the computer's power supply. It presents a serious risk of personal injury due to high voltage.
· Do not work inside a computer without protection from static electricity. Get an ESD wrist strap if possible and wear it while repairing your computer. If not, touch the unpainted metal of your case, usually on the rear, while performing the repair. Avoid wearing clothing that attracts static, such as wool, and stand up while working on the computer.
· Wait one minute after turning off the power supply before unplugging the computer to give the capacitors time to drain.
· Hold components by their edges and avoid touching the gold contacts.

FileZilla is a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program that website owners use to add, modify or delete files and directories on their website server. Although many FileZilla users have no problems retrieving their website's directory and files, you may find that Filezilla cannot retrieve your website's directory. There are five primary causes for issues with retrieving the website directory in FileZilla. By going over each possible cause and fix, you can usually get FileZilla to retrieve your website's directory.
o Before you can view or create directories on your website's server, you must first log into it securely with your username and password. One of the first things to check when FileZilla cannot retrieve the directory for your website is your username and password -- if either one is incorrect, FileZilla will fail to log you in and retrieve the directory. Type in your username and password again and this will often fix the problem. If you do not know the username and password for your website server, ask your server administrator.
Incorrect Host Address
o In addition to the username and password, you must also know the correct host address for your website. If you type in the wrong host address for your site, FileZilla will be unable to retrieve your website's directory. Generally, the correct host address for your site is the website address itself, although this may vary depending on who is hosting your site. If you do not know the host address for your website, contact your server administrator.
o To modify or access folders on your website's server, you must have the correct permissions; without them, FileZilla won't be able to retrieve or modify your directories. Directory permissions typically are set up automatically by your Web host, but you can change them as long as you are able to see the directories. As FileZilla cannot retrieve the directory in this case, your best bet is to contact your server administrator and have him give you full permissions. FileZilla then should be able to retrieve the directory.
o FileZilla may be unable to retrieve your website's directory because there is a problem with your copy of FileZilla. You may be able to fix the problem by installing any available updates. FileZilla also may be unable to retrieve the directory because your website's server is down temporarily. In this case, you may be able to access the directory at a later time. Contact your Web host to determine if there are any outages or down times.
