I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I take it that's the Multiplayer? if it is, it sure looks a little run-&-gun doesn't it?

I am jonesing for a good fps game.

GPU : GTX 750ti / 750 since this is a value oriented and energy efficient video card ( less fps but saves on power bills ).
Games : BF4 / far cry 4 and multiplayer titles.

A:Which cpu is overall better in value and fps results on modern games , i5 4460 or i5 4690k?

The I5 4690K would be better and should be able to be overclocked if u are interested in that.

Hey guys I shot a short film on DVD PC no footage longer reading in Used a friend s mini-dvd cam as I didn t have my own at the time Edited on Windows Movie Maker and everything was great I still have the same PC but I did install a new dvd cd drive as the old one wore out At some point in there I deleted a lot of raw footage DVD footage no longer reading on PC including this particular film to save space I did make a dvd copy of the original and thought that would be sufficient I m now wanting to post the film online but discovering that not only will the original dvd I made not play but even the mini-discs of the raw footage just sit there in the drive No prompts Nothing If you try to open the drive it just shows that nothing is in there CDs will play Professional DVDs will play But my film and the original footage does nothing I have Windows XP The footage is on mini-dvd-rw And the copy of the edited film is on a dvd-r disc What could be the problem Thanks so much nbsp

Do modern power supplies require any minimum load present on the +12v, +5v, and/or +3.3v rails? I've heard some can become fritzy if there is no load present on one or more of the voltage rails.

If so, what is considered a minimum safe required current load for each of the aforementioned voltages? I'm assuming the +5vSB and -12v rails don't require anything.

Obviously the +12v is easy to load with fans, and the +5v and +12v could be given a load with an old hard drive, but I still wonder what could load the +3.3v rail and if there are any rules of thumb for minimum load vs. output current claimed at each voltage, for example.

Thanks for any help.

A:Modern PSU require minimum loads?

How exactly would you use a PSU in a computer without a load being on it.....?

I've seen charts that indicate that efficiency suffers if the supply is under loaded, but that sort of goes to show that it's kinda stupid to buy a 700 watt PSU for a computer that draws 300 watts.

I am considering a RAID video storage array for primarily read-only use +5v current - modern & high-capacity overall MB's 2.5" hard drives use? As I understand it laptop hard drives use v current Let s assume I am using a modern - w TDP 2.5" high-capacity hard drives & modern MB's - +5v current overall use?

A:2.5" high-capacity hard drives & modern MB's - +5v current overall use?

Your laptop drives shoudl work, regardless. Their power draw is minimal... as they will run on a USB 1.1 or 2.0 external enclosure.

hey guys Just recently i purchased Call of Duty Modern Warfare Now because Modern Warfare has pretty much the same requirements maybe a bit higher then Call of Duty which runs average frames and no stuttering maxed out I figured that Modern Warfare would run very well also I was wrong Whenever i turn the games texture settings up to extra it stutters very badly as if its running out of ram i find that hard to believe ill get to that shortly to the point where its pretty much unplayable Lowering the settings to high makes the game playable but still stutters a bit Normal works fine but to me looks pretty bad Now the reason i find it hard to believe that its running out of ram is because my friend tried it out on his computer We both have 2 Warfare Stuttering Bad in Modern gb ram and the game ran perfectly on his I just cant seem to figure out why it stutters so badly on my system I tried updating my chipset drivers sound drivers and video card drivers all to the latest possible versions but there was still no change Maybe you guys can help me out on this one Anyone else have this annoying issue These are my system specs AMD Athlon x Ghz Ghz OC GB Corsair XMS DDR - Nvidia GeForce GT MB TB Western Digital hard drive These are my Bad Stuttering in Modern Warfare 2 friends specs just incase you need to know Intel Core Duo E Ghz Ghz OC GB Corsair DDR - Memory Nvidia GeForce GTX TB Samsung Hard Drive I know his system is alot better then mine but mine should still be more then powerful enough to run the game properly I dont see how it couldnt be Any help at all would be greatly appreciated Edit Me and my friend are also both running Windows Ultimate x nbsp

I recently bought Left 4 Dead 2 and played that for an hour, but then when I played Modern Warfare 2, the graphics were all glitched up. Basically, there were these random lines popping up everywhere. All over the weapon models, player models, and all over the maps. The weird thing is that this didn't happen until today right when after installing L4D2.

These are my specs:
Windows Vista
Dell Inspiron 1420 Laptop
Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS
Intel Duo Core T5250 @ 1.50 GHz
28.5 GB of free space

I know the graphics card is a little old (I've had my laptop for about 2 years), however, it ran MW2 just fine on low settings. It ran COD4 and Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 just fine as well on fairly low settings. I downloaded the latest drivers to see if that'll fix anything, but it didn't work.

What can I do to fix this problem?

A:Graphics glitching up in Modern Warfare 2 and Left 4 Dead 2

I have nvidia 8400 GS & modern warfare 2 runs fine. Try reinstalling modern warfare 2 or changing the graphic settings of the game.I had some problem with Age of empires III ships looked bizzare i used a patch from the official site & everything went fine.My friend completed modern warfare 2 evrything runs fine.

Thinking about getting a modern motherboard / Intel Quad Core for my Dell 2400 upgrade.

Medium gaming but lots of HD and Blu-ray stuff.

Anyone has done anything on his Dell 2400? Suggestions? Brand names? Hopefully I can score this combo / RAM in this holiday sale.

Currently my Dell 2400 has this set up:

P4 3.06
2 Gb RAM
5000Gb Hatachi ATA Boot Dirve
1Tb WD Green SATA 2nd Drive
22x LG DVD rewriter
8x LG Blu-ray rewriter
1 floppy
Evga 9400GT 1Gb PCI card
ATA / SATA RAID controller
Corsair 550W ATX supply


Dell 2400 mini case

I can transfer all these existing hardware for the new motherboard except the RAM (DDR1 or DDR3) and a better 1Gb PCI Express video card after that.

A:Getting a modern motherboard / Intel Quad Core for my old Dell 2400

Firstly, budget for CPU+mobo? Also, have you made up your mind on Intel? If you're on a constraint you may consider AMD.

As for motherboard brands, Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI are excellent choices. You may also add DFI to that list.

A:9800 GT problem with COD modern warfare 2

I think it's the PSU. Get yourself a decent PSU like the Corsair 450VX at least. Also check the temperatures in your system and ensure that you have the latest graphics drivers installed. Modern Warfare 2 should run fine on the highest settings on the 9800GT. It does so on mine.

My moms friend was cleaning out his basement and gave me a crap load of old computer stuff. One of these things was an external casing by Stream Logic. I was planning on giving this away but I decided to keep it for backup of all my files. I opened the thing up and found two SCSI Seagate ST19171W HD's inside. Now the only problem I have is if theres a way that I could get this hooked up to my computer which is basically only USB and Firewire ports like any other computer now a days.

If anyone would have a solution for this please tell haha. If not I'll be giving this away with a G3 that the friend also gave me which I really have no need for haha.


A:External SCSI on a modern computer..

You could install a pci scsi card such as any adaptec 2940 series. They have a connector on the back you can use to attach to the scsi enclosure. You'll need an external scsi cable of course. If you have no experience with scsi setup you might want to peruse adaptec's (or similar scsi site) site.

Hey guys,

I have a nice pair of logitech headphones that cost me 85.00 from best buy here in Canada. I try to play alot of online games with voice talking and people say I sound like i'm echoing or sound like a robot. I've adjusted sound card settings and also settings within the games I play and nothing helps. I can hear other people fine and clear. I've also tried 3 different headsets from logitech and they are all the same way? Can anyone help me out and explain what could be the cause of this. I've looked at updating my sound card drivers but sound blaster has not had an update for them for a long time and the sound card is about 5 years old.



A:Microphone issues in multiplayer games?

Try this.

Go to your control panel and double click on sounds and audio devices. Under device volume, click the advanced button. Make sure that the microphone is muted, by ticking the little box. Close the volume slider window and click ok, close control panel.

See if that helps.

OK, I've been struggling with this for awhile so i gave up, and now I'm asking for your advice. In Battlefield 1942, its been impossible for me to start my own server(not dedicated, just starting one by going to custom game..etc)

I have cable internet and use a Linksys BEFSR41 router to connnect 3 pc's. I know you have to mess with port forwarding and stuff, and I've tried my best, but have come out the loser... Please help if you can!

P.S. After playing with some of the settings on the router I managed to get it where my friends can see the server, but they are unable to connect to it.....

Hi We have an old CRM system that is modern transition old Web-based more to local CRM Need system an app a to currently local to only a single location and we are looking to transition it to a more modern web-based system with network capability and would appreciate any advice about the best way to go about it Basically we currently have a fairly simple Microsoft Access database system into which customer Need to transition an old local CRM system to a more modern Web-based app information and updates are added and from which regular reports are generated based on that data It is a fairly simple database with only two main tables a customer info table and a transaction table with a one-to-many relationship between the two There are other tables but they are mostly lookup tables used by the input forms and reporting in order to standardize input values The problem is that currently this database is only accessible from one main office location We have four other branch offices in different locations across the state and the process in the past has been for those branch offices to fax daily customer updates to the main office where the data is collected and then added to the database However we want to decentralize and modernize this process by moving the data entry and reporting out of the central office and into the individual branch offices instead allowing each branch location to track and manage their own customer data but we want those offices to share a central database repository between them What I'm trying to figure out is how to migrate the currently outdated system -- which is limited to a single physical location -- to a new web-based system that can be shared and accessed from these geographically separated offices I have looked at certain Full-stack CMS solutions like Joomla or Drupal to create this system but I'm beginning to think going that way might be overkill for what I'm trying to do Basically I need a browser front-end that can be used for data entry from the branch locations a central data repository I'm thinking MySQL where all data is stored network code to communicate between the two across the internet probably PHP and a reporting functionality that would allow us to run aggregate reports on the data inputted We are a fairly small company and I am the only tech-resource so I am trying to scope out this project and decide what technologies would be best to use to accomplish it Any advice links I can look at or comments on things I should keep in mind would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance --eric

Problem seems to stem from the fact that I am unable to replicate a certain "caret" into the command, for example: "Get-AppXPackage -User <username> |  Remove-AppxPackage". I highlighted the caret in red that I mean. It says to open Powershell and at then "Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from the system account", but I tried this but because I cannot put in the " | " in the command it only opens another command beginning, for instance:
PS C:\Windows\system32>
Please help, how do I get this to work, there are tons of apps pre-installed on this windows 8 that I simply do not use, I do not have a disk, it came with windows 8 pre-installed.
thanks for any help with this

My modern apps no longer will run in my windows 8.1 Pro laptop.
The two that I use are Microsoft Solitaire Collection and the Weather app.
I don't want to uninstall and reinstall them (also for the umteenth time), because I DO NOT want to lose my Solitaire collection stats, 500 wins out of 500 plays in Freecell.
What to do!
I know it's just a stupid game, but, still, there should be some way to fix this without having to uninstall and reinstall, again!
Or, if there is a way to preserve the stats in an uninstall/reinstall scenario, that would work for me.  In the past, the stats get reset in an uninstall/reinstall of Microsoft Solitaire Collection.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

A:My "Modern" Apps have stopped running for the umteenth time in my Windows 8.1 Pro

The answer turns out to be quite simple.  When I added the "Authenticated Users" user in the security tab for my Users folder, and propagated the changes down through the directory tree, any folder that had the ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES (or
some other metro based user account) user got hosed.  (The ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES user got dropped).
This, combined with the fact that, I guess, the metro apps run under some user other than the logged in user or depend on a software component that does the same, AND that when folder access is denied to the metro app, the program just closes with no error
message, created the problem.
I understand that the metro app programmers are just too cool to need to bother with such error popups ...
Once ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES is added, the metro apps start working again!

Hello all,
We have some workstations running Windows 8 that we would like to get upgraded to 8.1. We originally deployed Windows 8 using a customized image with all the Modern UI apps removed, e.g. Mail, Calendar, People, Maps, News, Food & Drink, Health &
Fitness, Reading List, etc. I've run the upgrade on a test machine using "Setup.exe /auto:upgrade" as documented at and it works; however, all the Modern UI apps are re-installed. 
Is there a way to perform this upgrade without all the apps installing, or, at the very least, not have the icons appear on the user's Start menu?

I was wondering if there was *some* way to launch Modern apps with the "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center", or whether there's a Modern version of "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center" in the works.

Is there some sort of command or something that can be put into the "Open a program, webpage, or file" field?

If nothing else, is there a program that can be launched that can automatically launch a metro app?


A:Launching Modern apps with "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center"....

I was wondering if there was *some* way to launch Modern apps with the "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center"

The only method that I have seen is using macros.  E.g. find the minimal, most reliable method of using the Start Screen to do whatever it is that you want to do via the keyboard, then express that sequence by a macro and assign it to an "unused"
function key.

Welcome to the forum. The simple answer is to get any pc and then run Vista under free virtual box as this will run any o/s its simple to do lots of support and free so you can have a fast modern pc with latest windows and use it for cad when needed It maybe the only way to do it as you may have problems getting drivers for vista for a modern pc this way its better as you get more power for cad and VB has all the drivers for vista etc.

I've posted this on another forum but would like to get opinions from this group as well.

I'm curious. Why would anyone go to the trouble of developing or updating a Windows "modern" app considering the current environment. As I understand it, the current "Universal" app was supposed to bridge the environments between Windows Phone, Windows RT and regular Windows. It appears Windows RT has no future except for a trivial update that will come in October. Also, it appears that Microsoft is not being fully honest when they promise new Lumia phones, but then fired most if not all of the phone development team. Windows 10 appears to have deprecated touch. So what is left? Where do Windows Universal Apps really fit into the grand scheme of things? Is there any particular reason to develop apps in an environment that is so restrictive?

A:Discussion: Are Windows "Modern" Apps of any value?

My observation, from seeing the changes introduced in Win10 from the Insiders program is that MS is obsessed with the Metro UI -- and wants EVERYTHING to take on that look and feel, period. I don't use a Windows phone and don't have a current Windows tablet -- so I have no use for a one-size-fits-all UI experience. That means, I have no real love for the Metro UI.

Plus, MS is clearly choosing looks over features -- when they swapped out a fully functioning IE browser for a half-baked Edge replacement. And now, other app developers are jumping on the same bandwagon with VideoLAN producing a Store version of VLC -- which, folks have said -- (like Edge) does not have the functionality of its "legacy app" counterpart.

MS's end plan is probably to have everyone using apps from their Store -- so they can control the content, and ALSO, so they can charge folks for new apps and for upgrades. They're pushing their subscription model onto their Office products, wouldn't surprise me if they did this on their Store apps, as well.

One of the frequent questions on the Win10 forums is how to uninstall these Store apps -- and from what I've read, it's very difficult (if not impossible) to do. So, folks end up disabling them, instead.

A:Recording Game Footage

Hello KevinR Welcome to the Ten Forums! (quite a bit late unfortunately)

Recording full screen game play or windowed mode play? is the question of the day! Here the effort to find one besides the Open Broadcaster Software strictly open source pc recorder where you have to add in a source first allows you to live stream or record mp4 files not avi which will easily play back on Windows Media Player as well as a number. It lacks one option however. PAUSE!

When going to pause with most recorders found on the web so far you only see the stop option while several offer hot keys while in a full screen game play to start and stop. Only a few free and paid for seem to include the pause option like Camstudio being a freeware. But when running a Steam title despite the hot keys option being used all it records is the desktop with the full screen game minimized to the taskbar! A spinning wheel where you would normally see the cursor is all you get!

Out of several trials as well as a number of freebies the Open Broadcaster Software program has been the only one that actually not only records the game full screen but allows you to monitor the feed. You can assign where to save captures as well as changed the name for each recording while the game is paused in case of recording segments only or not wanting to see Recording, Recording(1), Recording(2), etc. This one is not only a ffreebie but offers a multiple platform as well as the original where you can choose the OS.

I find when there is a pending update to the modern windows apps they won't work correctly. Then navigate to store and generally can see an update waiting. It then updates and seems to work fine. I've had it before where photos or calculator flash on screen and then disappear. I then see the updates are lurking. So basically a looming update seems to break functionality until you actually go and update.

Is your DNS client service running on your system .

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.In the list of services, click DNS Client.Make sure that the Status column displays Started and that the Startup Type column displays Automatic.If the service is not set to Started or if the startup type for the DNS Client service is not set to Automatic, follow these steps:
Right-click DNS Client, and then click Properties.In the DNS Client Properties dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Automatic in the Startup type list.Click Start, click Apply, and then click OK.

I'm more curious about this than anything because I just wasted and hour to figure it out. If I disable the DNS Client Service on Windows 8.1 it seems to break a lot of Modern apps. If it's set to start manually, some Modern apps trigger it to start.

Do Modern apps make queries directly to the DNS Client Service or something weird?

A:What's the deal with Modern apps and DNS Client Service?

Yeah I came across this just now, and was diagnosing the firewall and know the exact cause.

So when dns client is enabled, all dns requests are routed via it, meaning applications do not need specific udp port 53 internet access.
If the dns client is disabled any internet application that wants to do a dns lookup will need outbound udp port 53 traffic allowed.

Now there is some undocumented behaviour going on.

There is hidden WSH Network hardened rules in the windows firewall, these rules are "always" enabled. Regardless of default outbound state in the windows firewall. (allow rules also wont allow the traffic)
So the default windows firewall configuration is to require allow rules for inbound traffic and allow all outbound traffic.
However there is hidden rules that block certain traffic Microsoft decided to block, and it seems wermgr.exe which is used by metro apps, cannot send out dns traffic, the hardened rules block it.

My gut guess is this is a bug that is yet to be fixed. Because the vast majority of people (well over 99%) will have dns client service enabled in its default state.

Interestingly the hidden rules still kick in if you disable the firewall in the advanced UI. The only way to stop the rules is to actually disable the firewall service which is obviously not recommended, meaning the sane choice is either to keep dns client enabled, dont use modern apps or use a 3rd party software firewall in place of the windows firewall.

In the Sticky Thread quot List of Games working on Windows Technical Preview start Modern 3 Warfare dont 2 and quot people are saying that MW and MW are working on Win But its not working for me After I start the game i get a black screen for a few seconds and then Modern Warfare 2 and 3 dont start i get back to the desktop without any error message or something like that I play many games on Win and every game is working flawless Only MW and MW arent working Both games are using the same engine so i think the solution should be the same for both games I already tried to run the games in compability mode but this time i get the message quot iw mp exe has stopped working quot Also i already tried to run as admin An actual Catalyst Control Center was already included in the Technical Preview I installed a few directx patches but they dont helped me When I start quot dxdiag quot the programm is crashing After a restart I get a message if i want to skip the Direct D Test to avoid another crash After i Click Yes its shows that Direct D Accelerate is not available

I've been reading a lot about archival storage and it's kind of a depressing read At this point in time it appears that just about every archival storage medium has one or several major weaknesses Obviously redundancy can and should be used to supplement Storage -- modern seems like are lacking! It options Archival Data all these inherent limitations but that still is not ideal I would like to know what y'all use for your archival storage I have about GB of data I would like to save to a medium and then lock that medium inside my fire resistant tool resistant and torch resistant safe About GB of this would be considered of greatest importance because it contains pictures and videos of friends family and pet family members that are no longer with me I can deal with losing almost everything else but not this I have also been thinking about just how long I would use an archival medium before transferring the data to a newer technology that may very well be yet to be invented At a certain point outdated storage systems have to be replaced by necessity So I am going to guess this figure for me would be - years It might be sooner if a superior storage technology comes out but it might be later should no better products come to market or should whatever storage medium I select winds up sticking around in the future So here is a list of what I have been reading about and an explanation of the pros cons and limitations of each If I am wrong on any of these please correct me as I want to learn everything I can when it comes to archival storage m-Disk While extremely durable the costs are very high and User Reviews of m-Disk products are consistently poor While rated for years many Users are reporting major issues with burning and reading the m-Disks and have noted that many quot M-disk capable quot burners can be very Archival Data Storage -- It seems like all modern options are lacking! finicky That makes me uneasy given years down the road it might be very hard to find something that can read that m-Disk should optical disks disappear Archival Data Storage -- It seems like all modern options are lacking! completely Verbatim UltraLife DV-R or other archival-grade DV-R While only gb these have superior ratings than m-disk Archival Data Storage -- It seems like all modern options are lacking! and are more affordable While advertised as only th the longevity of m-Disk this is still years and so it's at a point where disk-based media will become completely obsolete long before I face degrades in data quality I mention the Verbatim UltraLife by name because it seems to have the best reputation among all DV-R archival disks and a reasonable price to go along with it As of right now I am leaning in this direction as the best option because I already have several external DVD burners BluRay BD-R amp Future TB Archival-Grade BluRay The and GB capacity is appealing compared to the smaller DV-R as is the intent to take BluRay disks to sizes of and GB and those large sizes will all be archival quality intended to work well for at least years On the downside I would need to buy a BluRay burner and I imagine most existing burners will NOT be able to burn the GB BR disks Further these massive sized disks have NOT been released to the public yet and so there is no guarantee that they will work well for archival storage and until that type of product is formally released there isn't complete certainty about its future MLC Flash media Most of my experience with TLC NAND has left me very displeased and so I have switched to only using MLC eMLC or SLC I have several GB Samsung PRO microSD cards and several Transcend SD cards both of which use MLC NAND and are superior to most TLC alternatives Beyond writing - x faster than most TLC cards I feel the MLC NAND Samsung is using is of extremely high quality tier and will have better reliability and endurance alike The biggest downside seems that without power the data may get corrupted due to a slow loss of el...

Hello all! I have just upgraded to windows 10. A quick visit in the windows store revealed that a few of the apps that I have installed already are also available as modern apps (i.e. QQ, onenote etc.) which makes me wonder if there is any performance boost in using modern apps over desktop ones or vice versa? Thanks!

A:Modern app vs Desktop app

Hello mx900 and welcome to the TenForums

There is no general rule of thumb on this; often the modern apps lack some of the functionality of the desktop apps but this is not always the case. I think you have to experiment and see. I have found OneNote to be good as the modern app, the Dropbox app is not so good for me as it does not sync with my desktop folders.

After rebooting I had the same problem. I checked the Event Viewer and I had 2 Error on Application log for Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost.exe

Anyone has any idea how to fix this?

Had this on my X1C 1st gen and my P70, its a dodgy hotfix not applying correctly from Microsoft Visual C++, stop the windows update service then clear c:\windows\softwaredistribution\download directory, reboot and force the system to look for updates, eventually it will install correctly and the problem goes away.

I have seen a number of posts regarding this problem:  Task Manager shows multiple listings of this item.  It is a memory and CPU hog, but apparently not a necessary system function. I have tried the fix of deleting the files in Windows/Software Distribution/Download, turning off Windows update and rebooting.  Does not make a difference. It does not seem from prior posts that Lenovo wants to take responsibility for this under warranty as it is a "software issue". Does anyone have a solution for this problem?  It makes my tablet nearly useless.

Computer: ThinkCentre M72eOS: Windows 10 After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to 10 Lenovo Companion 2/Lenovo Support apps nagged me to download and install System Interface Foundation (systeminterfacefoundation.exe). Since doing this, I see  Lenovo.Modern.ImController.PluginHost.exe taking 15% of the CPU (constantly).  Aside from uninstalling System Interface Foundation, does anyone have a fix for this? Not sure what the process is doing with 15% of the CPU as it just uses 8MB of memory and zero disc access. Thanks Christopher

Go into your BIOS and turn off anything that says reboot on error.

I can't remember if this is Halt on All Errors or Halt on None or something like that. Your BIOS may not have this option, which would be a shame... but that would at least get us the bluescreen you're looking at which would help us to diagnose your problem.

Hi as part of my IT job I am often to record my work on an issue with Windows Media Encoder I work on a VM with Win SP So far so good except that today I noticed neither of the movies I made was longer than seconds Seems like only the first seconds of footage are saved This is absolutely baffling to me since yesterday I made a minute and a half video that was fully visible - just the last in a long list of videos I've made as part of the job - and I had not changed any settings for the program in the mean time I deinstalled and reinstalled it but that didn't fix this issue also restarted the VM as part of the deinstallation I also had a quick look through the options without changing anything and there's no limit on size the movies are small with the custom compression too that minutes' movie is only MB large Would any whiz please take a crack at this I probably won't need to make any more movies until Monday but once Monday comes this would be an increasingly problematic issue and I don't trust my colleagues to be able to help solve it on time

A:Modern warfare 2 extreme lag, possibly win7 problem.


Set it running (right-click -> run as administrator), then play MW2. As soon as you get a period of lag alt+tab out and see what is using the most CPU/Memory (or the second most after MW2).

Also see if the Physical Memory usage is close to 100% on the overall system performance graph (press Ctrl + I, it's the last graph on the page).

If possible take a screenshot of the System Information window just after the lag has occurred so I can have a look at it.

When I search for certain programs in the modern UI they don't come up, they don't even come up when I go on all apps. The only one I can open them is by going into C:\Program Files (x86) and finding the program in there. Can someone please help me? Thanks.

A:Cannot find certain programs in the modern UI

I know this isn't really helping but in some cases, they won't show up at all. I've been using Windows 8 on my laptops in beta form, RTM for over a year now and the sad truth is the modern UI is broken.
Example is I usually install SQL 2012 first, then VS 2010. There is no amount of searching display the results. In this example, SQL 2012 uses VS 2010 as a shell. Many things do. In order to open it up, I would have to search for SQL Server Data Tools in order to open up VS because doesn't that just sounds like visual studio?
Silly isn't it.

None of my links actually open up to a browser page when I click them in the Modern UI Evernote, Bing Search, XBox Games (including the "Play" link) or any other start screen app that has links. They do work while in the browsers.

I updated from Windows 7 keeping apps and files etc. I had Chrome as the default browser and that basically turned off Modern UI IE, so I made IE the default (and unchecked the use desktop browser to open links) but it still won't open any links.

The little hand over the link just does nothing when I click it.

This is pretty frustrating as it makes my entire start screen sort of "dumb".

At the advice of just about everyone I finally have upgraded from IE which I've been quite happy with but which is apparently quot hopelessly outdated quot so I've been told repeatedly Modern Browser Problems even though it did what I wanted fine Sooo after spending a bunch of time trying to decide which direction to go I've installed both IE and Firefox I didn't even know you could run different browsers on the same PC Well admittedly I Modern Browser Problems just installed them yesterday but straight off they both have problems I don't know how Modern Browser Problems to fix IE is giving me grief as follows One- I'm getting a constant window popping up called quot view and manage your IE add ons quot Every time I close it it pops back up I don't know how to make it go away or what it wants me to do exactly Two- IE seems to have a pop up blocker problem Even when I turn the pop up blocker off it still continues to block every pop up even if I set it to the lowest setting In IE there used to be a handy option allowing you to select quot allow pop ups temporarily quot or even quot always allow pop ups from this site quot just by right clicking on the alert bar IE doesn't have this that I can see It does offer the option quot turn pop up blocker off quot but even if I select this option the pop up I need to use continues to be blocked For example one of my online banking sites security verification measures involves the use of a pop up menu where the user must select security information Well I can't log in to that banking site using IE because it will not allow those pop up menus to execute no matter what I do I even tried to add that site to my quot allowed sites quot but it still blocks all pop ups The wierd and frustrating thing is that it continues to block the pop ups even after I turn the pop up blocker OFF So that's been my experience with IE after my first day with it PS I just tried to select quot instant email notification quot from the menu below and the pop up blocker won't allow the menu to work even if I go and turn it OFF As for Firefox the immediate problems with that are One- it doesn't have a favorites menu It has something else called bookmarks but it changed the order of all my links and folders organizing them alphabetically by default This is not a huge problem of course I could probably get used to it Two- a bigger problem is that I use a program called Roboform where I store all my passwords and such so that when I visit various sites Roboform will pop up and offer to fill in logins and other forms automatically I have come to rely on Roboform to do this task and I rarely have to remember any user names or passwords in particular The handy thing also about IE is that it includes Roboform in the toolbar options so I can have it there handy at all times With Firefox however not only is Roboform not available as a toolbar the pop up function does not work either so basically Roboform appears to be incompatible with Firefox at least at first glance Further to that with toolbars Firefox only appears to have toolbars available Navigation and Bookmarks I've played with the customise feature but with no success as yet But the biggest drawback so far with Firefox is not being able to use Roboform These issues alone are enough to make neither of these browsers attractive to me if they cannot be rectified Any advice appreciated Cheers Kenny

I've been using Internet Explorer 6 for ages and I'm perfectly happy with it, but some sites I visit keep advising me that my browser is outdated and will soon be ineffective on some sites, such as facebook. I keep getting advised to upgrade to a "modern browser" such as firefox or IE8 or some other one, I forget which. Anyway, I don't really know which one I should be upgrading to, having been using IE forever I'm inclined to just get their latest version, but I thought I'd make an effort to look into the alternatives. Soooo, my question is, what are the pros and cons of different browsers and is there one that stands out above the rest that you'd recommend, and why?? Thanks much for any advise or guidance.

Unwired replied to the email saying I have to call them back (bastards) anywho, Both people I spoke to stated that the Unwired modern box dose not store any information, the second one admitted that it could possible be my unwired IP address, which apparently gets changed every couple of days. I asked "so what ur saying it is not unwired what so ever" The first one said "no it diffidently isn't us" (obviously covering his back) and the second one replied with "it is possible that the IP address may have been hacked, If suspicious sites have been visited"

There's an OEM for it for $100 on eBay. (AUD, 72.91 USD) I don't have a paid OS yet (Win10 IP, planning on Linux Mint) I'd like a retail copy of 7 at some point, so I've always got a transferable licence for future systems.
Basically the plan is to have Windows 7 retail dual-booting with XP x64.
But I don't want to waste $100 on XP64 if it's not any good. I love XP, and to be able to use it with a 64-bit CPU and 8 GB RAM is enough to make me want to buy this. I'm just not sure if there will be any major problems with the OS that make it no better than the 32-bit version. (I know of the little glitches already)
So basically, is XP64 worth buying at $100?

A:Windows XP x64 on modern PC

IMO XP is not worth $100 plus it is no longer supported by MS so no updates leaving it vulnerable, I would move to 7 which has support until 2020.  That will give you time to think out your next step, 7 can be bought for about the same $$.

I found that the Windows 'Copy' cmd was unreliable when copying bulk data of mostly folders of multimedia files between external USB HDDs and from internal HDD to external HDDs As the data was massive it is impractical to manually check that each of thousands confirm ? that a 100% modern Seek to GUI uses Verify copy accurate 'Copy' cmd of files is copied without error I since found a number of Seek a modern GUI 'Copy' cmd that uses Verify to confirm 100% accurate copy ? posts confirming Windows 'Copy' is quite primitive and obviously does not use any kind of verification that the copied files are an exact copy of Seek a modern GUI 'Copy' cmd that uses Verify to confirm 100% accurate copy ? the original I seek a modern easy to use GUI equivalent of the old DOS 'xcopy' cmd line copy-with-verification utility that Microsoft included to rectify the deficiencies of 'Copy' in the era before Windows but has since chosen to ignore bit-for-bit Verification should be the most important feature not speed As they say more haste less speed It needs to have at least some form of basic logging of result preferably with choice of summary or verbose logging Although the prime use is for when one does the original copy files folders drives for filesets already copied it would be helpful if it could also do a Verification only pass comparing filesets If poss pls recommend a few in preference order so I have a choice

Whenever I play most multiplayer games such as War Thunder, World of Tanks, or Battlefield, I always get super high ping and lots of packet loss. For example, I am just driving one of my tanks in World of Tanks and my ping jumps to 999 and my tank glitches into the ground and then jumps to where it would have been after I stopped driving. Or in War Thunder, I am just flying around and my plane glitches and in half a second dives down into the ocean or crashes. This only happens on my desktop, not my laptop or any other computer. I have Xfinity and use wireless for all my devices. I even tried on a different network more than 20 miles away and it still happened. This never used to happen. It just started one day a few months ago and hasnt stopped since. Minecraft and Civilization multiplayer is fine though. Please Help me! 

A:Help me with my multiplayer problems!

To troubleshoot this I would go "on-the-wire". You need to eliminate all wireless connections before looking at the tower. I suspect the wireless NIC is starting to fail, however.
