What to Do with a Hung or Unresponsive Windows 7 Program 7 years 6 days ago v.laurie I assume you mean the email that goes out to Gizmo subscribers. I don't see the email but all the links pertinent to tips are in the body of the article. view

New Free Suite of Windows System Utilities 6 years 11 months ago v.laurie Thank you for the useful information about your experience, GraveDigger. Your example with the 1-click function shows again why it is always necessary to go through all the settings first before using this type of program. Even CCleaner or Glary will remove things I don't want them to if I don't configure them first. view
New Free Suite of Windows System Utilities 6 years 11 months ago v.laurie Dangerous they are, but this type of program is very popular and we cannot ignore them. It seems better to try to inform people and point out all the problems. Comments like yours and others here may be just the thing to keep some less-experienced people from blindly using a cleaner. The site also mentions Registry cleaners, which is another category of very dangerous (and IMO almost useless) software. Just because a piece of software is mentioned here doesn't mean it is recommended. view
New Free Suite of Windows System Utilities 6 years 11 months ago v.laurie @MikeR: I appreciate and understand your points. Thanks for your interest in the integrity of TSA and your suggestions. What gets included here is an individual editorial decision and in borderline cases reasonable people can sometimes come down on different sides. This program is new, in a popular category, and has been mentioned in various places on the Internet and that is why it is in Hot Finds. Your concern about newbies is shared by us all and was one of the reasons I wrote about it. Several well-known sources have given this program good reviews and I thought it should be mentioned here so that people would get another point of view. This is not the venue for full reviews but I tried to indicate that it was not a top pick. view
How to Add Your Favorite Folder or Program to (My) Computer in Windows 7 and 8 6 years 11 months ago v.laurie I'm not quite sure what you did.

Eight PDF Files You Don’t Want to Open 6 years 10 months ago v.laurie Any PDF reader with JavaScript enabled might be vulnerable, There are also other possibilities.

Eight PDF Files You Don’t Want to Open 6 years 10 months ago v.laurie Because its software is very widely used, Adobe is a particular target for hackers but any reader can have a security flaw. Alternate readers (http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-non-adobe-pdf-reader.htm) are probably attacked less often but I would disable JavaScript on any reader unless I specifically needed it.

How to Allow the Uninstalling of Programs in Windows 7 Safe Mode 6 years 7 months ago v.laurie I am puzzled. I have no trouble with this in Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I just tried it again. Went into safe mode and uninstalled a program. The msiserver was already running. Here is the REG file exported from my Registry: ---------------------------------------------- Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer] @="Service" ---------------------------------------------- view

How to Free Up More Space on Your Hard Drive with the Updated Windows 7 Disk Cleanup 6 years 6 months ago v.laurie Disk cleanup is not supposed to remove files you might need.

An Important Disk Cleanup Job after Upgrading to Windows 8.1 6 years 5 months ago v.laurie There are several points to make. First, before any upgrade, you should always make a backup of the whole system. So I would hope you already have a backup. However, if you have plenty of disk space, there is no particular need to delete the file. People with an SSD or a small C: partition are the ones most likely to need the space. As to copying the file to another location, it is a hidden system file and copying such files and then reading them, if necessary, can be tricky. I have not tried doing that. If anybody has experience with that, let us know. view

Make Your Windows 8/8.1 Computer Act Like New with the Refresh Feature 6 years 4 months ago v.laurie The system has a record of the path to the refresh image. If you put the image on a removable external drive, be sure that the drive assignment is the same if you plug the drive back in to use the image. Or you can use the command line to reset the default refresh image to a new location. Personally, I maintain a variety of backups with several on external removable drives but I have kept this particular refresh image on a second internal drive with a copy of the image file CustomRefresh.wim on an external drive. view
Make Your Windows 8/8.1 Computer Act Like New with the Refresh Feature 6 years 4 months ago v.laurie I would add that some malware infections will seek out any connected external drives and could possibly infect your backups. That is why I keep a backup drive that I disconnect except when backing up. Some people even keep a backup in a distinct geographical location in case of fire or other disaster. I even have a friend who takes a backup drive to his bank vault. view

Make Your Windows 8/8.1 Computer Act Like New with the Refresh Feature 6 years 1 month ago v.laurie The image can be pretty big, depending on what you have on your computer. I do not recommend placing the new image on your main hard drive. Put it on an external drive. As the tip says, create a folder to hold it. Also, as the tip says, make sure you have room on the drive where you are putting it. The recovery partition on most PCs is really only big enough to hold the original image. Once you start adding your own programs and files it is going to be too small. The command is "recimg" whch I presume comes from "recovery image". view

What is “Freeware”? 6 years 3 months ago v.laurie The PC users group I went to back in those days had a lending library of shareware on 360 KB 5 1/4" floppy disks. Those were the days when people really knew how to code and you could get a surprising number of programs even in such a small capacity. Of course, DOS itself only had 512 KB of memory to work with. view
What is “Freeware”? 6 years 3 months ago v.laurie Although there is some overlap between the freemium and crippleware categories, they differ in how useful the free software is.

Crippleware is generally not all that useful and often has the best features missing. view

All I can say is that it is usually thought that Mobility Center is disabled on desktops. It was missing on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit system and several other desktops that I took a quick look at. Microsoft says "Windows Mobility Center—included on laptops running the Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Windows 7—puts commonly used laptop settings in one spot so you can access them easily on the go."
