Preferred Solution: What tablet PC do you recommend for the sole purpose of reading ebooks?

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 bought a E5-532 a couple of weeks ago. I know that such computers are slow for playing games but it constantly lags for even simplest things. For example, it may take like 5 secs to load a simple webpage. Or it may take 3 seconds to go to the next page when reading PDF files. Takes a long time to open any programs. Is something wrong with my laptop or it is to be expected for this model?

Hi all,
I'm on the hunt for a cheap as poss Windows 10 tablet that supports an active stylus for a friend who wants to run the StaffPad app.
Size and specs are pretty unimportant, other than the ability to run that specific app, so the active stylus is the only real requirement.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Cheers in advance!

A layered set up is an ideal security solution....with imaging/backup +something like sandboxie/returnil thrown in.

I was advised to use MS Essentials which I am utilizing at present. I am reluctant to pay for an AV right now as I only bought Norton a couple of months ago. I was wondering if MS Essentials offers good all round protection in it's own right or whether it is recommended to use it in conjunction with another form of protection.

it is safe as your surfing habbits ...imho...use it in conjunction with something like
mbam pro or prevx both are paid for though

I like my AV to do a solid job at detecting all forms of attacks, have a decent scan speed but run fairly inconspicuously in the background. I also like to be prompted to do regular updates or have automatic updates, rather than going to a website to search for them.

honestly the new norton line does just that ...but mse is also an unobtrusive... silent..yet effective av with an automatic update schedule

Grab a copy of Malwarebytes antimalware. The paid version has real time protection and is not very expensive. Updates almost daily. The free version has an on demand scanner and free, full updates. Would do an excellent job along with MSE.

A:Win7 Ultimate Sole User Administrator Privileges Not Recognized for Automatic Windows Updates

Hi KiDeb.
Did you have any changes prior this issue?
Could you confirm that Important Updates were installed before?
The possible solution could be this:
Hold WindowsKey + R 
Type: ?regedit?
Hit Enter

Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
Find AUOptions. 
Right Click Modify

You can change the values data from 1 through 5:
1. Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
2. Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
3. Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
4. Install updates automatically / Never Check For Updates
5. Enable the option box to choose manually

If this doesn't help, you can try this method, but make sure you backup the registry files as you are doing this step on your own and I am not responsible for the possible issue -
Backup registry files in Windows 7
Click ?Start? button.
Select ?Run?.
Type ?regedit? without quotes in the Run window and hit Enter.

Navigate to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
In the right-pane, delete these two values ?AUOptions? and ?NoAutoUpdate?.

Then navigate to this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate
In the right-pane, delete the value ?DisableWindowsUpdateAccess?.
Restart the computer and then try to change the Auto Update Settings.

In loading a couple of my ebooks into iTunes, I encountered an irritating problem. In importing the ebooks from CD to iTunes, the tracks get loaded into the Music Library instead of the Audio Books folder. Further more, I have not been able to transfer the tracks out of the music library and into the ebook folder/library. This means that if I play the library randomly, the ebook tracks get played randomly. If anyone can tell me from experience how to organize ebook tracks in iTunes, it would help.

Hey all,

I've read several articles on the registry tweaks to get My Pictures or My Music folders from showing up in the My Documents folder, but I can't find anything on how to get rid of the My eBooks. I know it is part of Adobe, and found a tweak on the internet, but it didn't work. Essentially it had me move the eBook plugin from the Reader folder to the Optional folder, then delete the eBooks folder from My Documents, but it still comes back. Anyone else have any ideas?

A:Adobe Digital Editions Importing Deleted Ebooks again

I was having the same problem with ADE reloading all of my old ebooks.

What I did to solve it was to delete the ebooks from ADE, then go into the "\My Documents\My Digital Editions" folder and physically delete the ebook files from there. That way, the ebooks aren't in the folder to reload the next time that ADE starts.

It's the only way that I found to get around it, other than not use ADE (which is pretty much impossible if you want to buy an ebook.)

It's sad when DRM forces us to use a genuinely sub-par program to download and read legitimately purchased ebooks. You're paying money for the ebooks and are essentially forced to use ADE. You would think that Adobe would at least put some effort into making it work well. But I guess when you're the only game in town... why would they care?

If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

There are a few advantages to using the 64-bit version:Security: DEP/NX is always on for 64bit processes. (Of course, on Vista SP1+, 32bit IE8+ has DEP/NX enabled by default too.)
Security: Memory protections like ASLR are more effective (because the address space is dramatically larger)
Security: Most bad guys only bother to write x86 shellcode, which will fail in an x64 process
It may crash less. (Because most addons don't load in 64bit IE, it tends to be more reliable.)
It may be faster to start up. (Because most addons aren't loaded. You can disable add-ons in 32bit IE if you'd like)

HOW AND WHY WOULD YOU OVERCLOCK! Maybe im being stupid and i should no what this is about but the fact is i dont!! haha. any way somebody please educate me. That would be nice

A:The purpose and how to's of overclocking?

Overclocking means that you make components in your system such as processor or memory run faster than stock speeds. You can also overclock the processor and memory on a video card. The purpose is to save money and get better performance. I got an XP 2500 processor for $65. I overclocked its bus speed from 333mhz to 400mhz. That turned it into a $130 XP 3200. With a good cooler I was able to overclock my video card from 378 core/675 memory to 410 core/710 memory giving me about a 20% performance boost. Not all parts will overclock and if you dont do it right you can do some damage to the parts and possible ruin your system.

I have an HP laptop Pavilion and when I click on "computer" in the start menu, I see four disks listed. They are Local Disk (C), Recovery (D), HP TOOLS (E), and Local disk (Q). I understand Local Disk (C), but what are the others for? Thanks

A:Purpose of disks

What's the complete model number of that HP Pavilion laptop?

If you don't know for sure, advise what the product number(P/N) and/or model number(M/N) on the sticker is.

Did it come with a recovery disc kit, or did you create one after the laptop was initially set up?

If the built-in D: recovery partition gets damaged or if the hard drive needs to be replaced, you'll need the recovery disc kit to get that laptop going again.


The C: drive is the main partition and is where Windows and your programs and extras are installed.

The D: drive is the built-in recovery partition that allows you to revert that laptop back to its original news condition.

What is the reason that volume ID has to change with every format?

Why do we even need a volume ID number?

A:Purpose of Volume ID?

Howdy there Alex Ethridge...

Well from what I can remember, the volume id is basically the volume serial # of storage media...

It created at the time the media is formatted, the reason it changes...

The first part of the serial number is equal to the sum of the time (seconds and hundredths of a second) and the date (month and day); The second part of the serial number is equal to the sum of the time (hours and minutes) and date (year), where all numbers are in hex. For example, if the diskette is formatted at 8:32:43.65 on 7/21/1991, the first part of the serial number will be 2B41+0715, or 3256; the second part of the serial number will be 0820+07C7, or 0FE7.Click to expand...

Copy and paste from here...

The reason it is needed, is that some software companies ( espically MS ) use if for licensing their products...

She asked me to go to my computer and she would direct me to the files in my system that needed to be removed or corrected.

I understand what HP_Tools is for (more or less), Recovery partition is for, and what C: is for, but I don't understand what the 199 MB SYSTEM partition is for.

I'm in the same position. I intend to build Sandy Bridge within a few weeks and want to do some informal comparisons to my current mighty E6600.

SiSoft Sandra used to be pretty good and still may be. I'm not sure if there are both free and paid versions.

3D Mark was a standard benchmark app a couple of years ago.

I'd be interested in other suggestions.

I've read a bunch of Sandy Bridge tests in the last few days, but most had a gaming emphasis, unfortunately.

If I recall correctly, Cinebench is a pretty good indicator of overall strength.

You can always do SuperPi for a raw comparison of CPU power---how fast can the CPU compute Pi to a million or 32 million decimal points.

Here's some SuperPi comparisons, computing Pi to 1 million decimal points:

My ancient Pentium 4 2.26: 78 seconds after a fresh boot

Even more ancient Pentium 90: 35 minutes

Pentium 3.2 Northwood: 42 seconds

My Core 2 Duo E 6600 at stock clock of 2.4 GHz: 21 seconds
PC world record as of May 24, 2006, 11.359 seconds with a Conroe 2.66 overclocked to 4.470; long since surpassed.

I think current upper end Intel Sandy Bridge iron is down under 10 seconds, and around 7 with a big overclock.

Hi Guys,

Any idea about the Main Function/Purpose of this:

1. Transisor

2. Capacitor
thanks for those people answer my question.

A:Main Function/Purpose?

those components can be used in a number of ways - depends on the circutry they are in as to what function they perform

you can get an overview of each component from a google search - but would need the circuit to know what they are doing

A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals and electrical power. The essential usefulness of a transistor comes from its ability to use a small signal applied between one pair of its terminals to control a much larger signal at another pair of terminals. This property is called gain. A transistor can control its output in proportion to the input signal; that is, it can act as an amplifier. Alternatively, the transistor can be used to turn current on or off in a circuit as an electrically controlled switch, where the amount of current is determined by other circuit elements.Click to expand...

Capacitors are widely used in electronic circuits for blocking direct current while allowing alternating current to pass. In analog filter networks, they smooth the output of power supplies. In resonant circuits they tune radios to particular frequencies. In electric power transmission systems they stabilize voltage and power flowClick to expand...

I just acquired an Asus board with a plug marked "PWR_FAN"
I just acquired an Antec Trio 650 PS that has a small matching socket with black & blue wires.
This socket has no markings on it that I can see.

Of course the Antec manual doesn't even acknowledge the existence of the latter, and the Asus manual doesn't specify any particular purpose for the former.

Since I don't fathom the logic where the PS fan takes back input from the mb that it is contemporaneously powering, my question is: Should I plug the damn line from the PS into the PWR_FAN pins on the board? tia

A:Purpose for the PWR_FAN plug on a mb

You should have a multiple fan connectors on the board. One will be labeled cpu fan or perhaps just by number ie fan1, etc. Check your manual as to which one you connect the cpu fan to.
The one you describe is most likely for a power supply fan to read rpm. You can connect it or not it really does not matter.

Not to brag, but I know enough about computers. Yet one of the things that I have never found was the purpose of disk defragmenting. I was wondering if anyone could put it in simple terms for me. Is it reliable? Is there any risk involved?

Thanks and happy holidays!

A:What is the purpose of disk defragmenting?

Files can be stored in pieces all over your HD ... wherever Windows finds available space.
Defragging organizes the pieces in one place .. so your HD doesn't have to look all over the HD to collect the Pieces/Parts

This speeds up the collection of files .. and your computer runs faster.
Yes ... it's safe.

What is the purpose and function of the Microsoft .NET Framework, and which programs use it ? It seems to get fairly many of the windows updates some times. So is that .net framework really needed just for basic every day email and browsing the web?

A:What is the purpose or function of the .NET Framework ?

The framework contains the runtimes for any program written in a .NET-compatible development language. Many new programs (most?) use it since it is such a popular development environment. I don't know of any mail programs or browsers that use it.

If you remove it, any program that needs it will fail to run. If a new program requires it and you do not have it, the setup will usually tell you and ask that you install it, or even offer to install it itself.

Unless you are really desperate for space, I see no reason to remove it. The updates should be automatic and they really are no burden. But admittedly, for the things you mentioned, it is probably not needed.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I dont want to spend the kind of money that the 256 mb ati cost, but wonder if I cant get by with a much cheaper version but still get as good or better results as I did with the 32 mb card which was installed in a pent 3 500mg running 98.

What is the actual purpose of the 'Outbox' file in Mail. Yesterday I sent out about 20 emails, I looked in the 'Sent' file today & only 3 had left, all the others are sitting in the 'Outbox'. Why?

A:Purpose of 'Outbox' in 'Mail'

Mails waiting to be sent or it might be a large email that is in the process of being sent. Once it is completely sent it will move to your Sent Items folder. If it is taking a long time to send it might be a very large attachment or if mail exceeds the size limit, it will be stuck in the outbox.

Just wondering how some of you use this function of some of the newer motherboards. Also, I just built a new system with a 250gb drive and when installing xp pro it only recognized 137gb, so I used Seagate Partition manager to give me a second partition that was about 100gb- is there any way to make the original boot partition larger? or am I stuck with 2 partitions which are 137 and 100.... Thanks!

what filesystem di you format with? how did you partition the drives? from the xp boot disc? if so you can set the partition size from available space. Now you could probalby use partition magic 8 and it would let you mmess around with the drive

I have been pondering for while about leaping into the world of VR. I can't see myself buying a new computer considering that my A730 is perfectly functioning. Does anyone has tried to upgrade any of the A700 series to a VR compatible system. Is it even possible.

I am deploying Windows 7 to multiple computers using one MAK for windows 7. I successfully ran sysprep and created an image. After imaging multiple computers i noticed that the Product ID is the same on all the computers? Is this going to be an issue? I was under the impression that the Product ID would be different for every system i image. Any Info would be appreciated....

A:Product ID purpose in Windows 7?

You should have a MAK good for a certain number of machines. I believe it would only give you problems if you go over that number.

ok, so ive had diablo II for a while now, (snicker all you like) and id like to make an image of it to run from my harddrive, but the program i used to use went out of availability some time ago (clonecd). is there anything else out there for free i could use to make an image of my cd. i know alchohal 120% works but i want something free i can use again and again, (for more than just diablo II)

A:cloning cd's with legitimate purpose

CloneCD 5 is alive and kicking you can get it from you should be able to use ISO buster to create and ISO image of your CD.

there is also an application called game drive which allows you to rip your games to hard drive as images and monts them so you can play them. it isnt freeware but it isnt expensive ( around 19.00 US)
