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 language CD set, and I do like it. The one thing I do not like is using the CDs every time I want to work with it. I have a Dell inspiron mini 10 with the external CD drive. The reason I bought the mini was for portability, but carrying the CD drive negates some of the advantages. How can I load the CDs on the hard drive and work from it, rather than the CD? I appreciate any help with this.

A:How do I save my language CDs on my hard drive and work from there?

This all depends on the software.
Not all programs let you copy the CD to your HD to make it work. If you tell us what software it is, it may help. What does the program access the CD for? Is there an option in the program, of where to look for certain files?

Hi guys, I downloaded a movie (Asterix and the Olympic Games) but found that the sound track was in French. I was wondering if there was a way I could change the language of the track or download either english subtitles or sound track and then combine it with the video.

Thank you.

A:Video Sound Language

You won't be able to combine them. Even if it were possible with editing software (it may be) the timing would be off. You have to try to find another copy in English...

I need to get a new case as i'm moving into water cooling. I currently have a P182 but it has no window

What is your favourite case?


A:What is your favourite case? I need some advice

For watercooling, go for a full-tower ATX case. The Antec Twelve Hundred, Cooler Master Cosmos and Stacker series, and Thermaltake Armor and Kandalf series are among the best choices.

However, for the ultimate in quality, assuming you can afford it, get a Lian-Li case. I recommend the PC-V2000BPLUSII and PC-V2110 specifically.

I have a Toshiba M700 tablet PC running Windows Vista ultimate 32-bit edition.

I wanted to run a program that requires me to have the non-unicode language set to Japanese.
I changed it to Japanese, and then proceeded to try and run the program.
Program runs fine.

I tried to connect my bluetooth headset to listen to my music. No luck. I get an error message about copy protection.

What's odd is that if I change the non-unicode language back to English, the headset connects just fine, and it doesn't complain about copy protection or anything.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.

What are you interested in doing? Making computer programs/apps for an OS like Windows or OS X? iOS or Android? Or programming robots and microcontrollers? Do you want to create a website or blog? Or something else?

I think the best beginner language is Python. Then you can move onto programming languages based on your interests. If you want to code apps for iOS for example, you would need to know Objective C and a bit of Cocoa (specific language for OS X/iOS).

I'm learning how to write websites in HTML and I just learned the <form> command and the different form elements you can use with it. When I set the command to MAILTO:[email protected] it opened up my computer's default mail program. I'm wondering if there's any way to have the information sent to my e-mail without using an external program.

A:HTML form programming

Yes, with the mailto in the href, the client's default email software is invoked, which
exposes the target email address.

The other choice is to send a message to the webserver where cgi programming forms parameters to the sendmail api on the webserver itself. This hides all the email addresses and allows extra data to be inserted in the message.

Instead of an href with mailto, the form action is used to point at your cgi program on the websever to process all the forms data.

I'm trying to learn Assembly language but all the tutorials that I've read on the Internet are so confusing. They just go on and on about registers and bytes and don't tell me how to use them in a real debugger. I want to actually learn what they do in real life as I'm learning. Do you guys know any tutorials that are good and easy to understand? I know how to program in C++, Java, and Basic but I don't think that will help me with learning Assembly.

A:Help me find a good tutorial for learning Assembly Language

Uhm.. If you don't know what registers and bytes are, then assemply is plain useless. You might as well say "I want to learn C++, but I don't want to know about variables or classes".

Also, in 99.9% of the cases you don't need to go to the assembler level in debugging. Modern debuggers are advanced enough to let you step through source code and examine variables at the same time.

You need assembler skills if you are debugging routines with no source available or if you suspect compiler errors.

A:Programming Anyone??

Internet access to a DMBS (eg Access) has this data flow:


the browser[1]
has a web page
usually some < form data >
click submit -------> http GET or POST ---> webserver[2]

---> webserver[2] -- runs the requested CGI program
which accesses the DBMS
reads the query results
formats a HTTP reply
browser[2] <----------------- and writes it to STDOUT

So you need
1) HTML coding for the browser,
2) CGI programming to receive the request (eg PHP,Perl)
3) and an API to connect/query to your Access DBMS
(btw: it needs to be on the webserver, not your pc)

I wanted to see if anyone had an idea as to the most suitable tool required to program a basic macro such as this:

* Click on a Desktop icon
* this opens a pre-defined number of IE 6.0 browser windows (IE 6.0 is the only browser my company has certified at this time)
* each window navigates to a specific site automatically
* macro pauses and then uses credentials to log in to the four windows

Basically, I am trying to log into many load balancing devices at a time thru web-based JAVA GUIs, as changes on these devices are often requested at a moments notice and the process of logging into them all is time consuming.

This seems as if it would be very simple to do programmatically, I just don't know where to begin.

Thanks for any advice.

Easier approach:

Create a HTML FrameSet with four subframes
Each frame contains a description of the target 'attachment'
Each frame contains a LINK
with target="_new" to open a fresh window
and a url to the specific login
​Place the AttachmentCTL.html anywhere you need such access and the desktop
user will still need to login per your infrastructure design.

A:Server-side programming for a c++ noob?

"Serverside"? If you mean active content for web pages, then C++ is not the tool for it. You use interpreted languages like PHP, Perl, Ruby, Python, TCL or such for that. You can also use Java for certain things if you think that everyone visiting your website has a kickass connection and a fast computer.

If you mean UNIX programming, then there's nothing different to it that normal programming. You include the right headers and call the system functions just like any other.

A:Programming Languages

Programming languages are as many as human languages so it's not possible to really answer "What's the best". Like natural languages, program languages (PLs) each have their own advantages and disadvantages (French for example).

I might say the biggest move in general in PLs is Object Oriented langauges (OOL), of which C++ and JAVA are a small part of that set. Another fairly useful, but sometimes "awkward" and "clumsey" OOL is VisualBasic. All OOLs deal with Class Modules which consist of Properties and Attributes, or LET and GET actions. Within these languages you can create an example of an Object (a prewritten class module registered within the language) and then set it to a value from a local or global variable. Or act upon some local or global variable with a LET action.

Anyway it seems you are on a similar track of thinking as you have already identified C++ and JAVA as popular and powerful langauges.

Here's a link to some basics of OOLs:

Hi All !

I bought a Toshiba Dynabook WX-3727 laptop a few days back. It came with Japanese Windows XP Home Edition. I already had Windows Professional (English) Edition with me which I load on the same drive (60 GB came with only one partition) with dual boot option. Now the problem is that I don?t have drivers for the video card (ATI mobility Radeon 9000 IGP) and the flash memory stick reader. So the display is not at all good when I load my laptop in English OS. Also memory stick reader drive doesn?t work with english OS.
I saw on internet that there are some programs using which we can make back up of the drivers in .exe form. So can I make backup of drivers in Japanese OS and try and load the same in English OS ? Will it work ? Are drivers also language specific?Please help me with this?

A:Are drivers language specific ?

Ok I know that I have asked this questions before but when I did a search and I look through my old posts I can't seem to find it. Must have been pruned or something and I can't remember how I did it.

Anyway I was wondering how do you diable the Language Bar from being displayed automatically on your Task bar when you log into windows. I know that it isn't a bit deal to just turn it off, but I would like to disable it like I had before and some how I got it to come on all the time now after installing something.

A:How do you disable the Language Tool bar

I had the same problem, and I disabled it... Unfortunately I cant remember how I did it...

I remember rightclicking on the task bar and then going into properties or something. Im on a school computer atm so unfortunately cant have a look due to the retarded system administrator diabling right click... WHAT A NOOB!

I am considering getting a Lumia 640 as my first smart phone. One of my hobbies is learning a foreign language and the iPad is really helpful for this. It has been often said that Microsoft cannot offer anything like the apps needed to attract mobile customers. That looks to be true and my occasional use of a netbook running Windows 8.1 has disappointed in relation to apps available. Memrise and Duolingo are two apps that I recently discovered on my iPad and they are very good. The former isn?t available for Windows phone. Duolingo is awful on a computer because of problems with sound recording and speech recognition. It works after a fashion with the Chrome browser but the iPad is streets ahead of my laptop.

Has anybody experience of using language apps and feel able to make suggestions? At present a Windows 10 phone is looking much less suitable for me than an iPhone or Android device.

I have inherited an HP laptop installed with Win XP and Office 2007. Problem is the Win XP is in Swedish and according to this thread that is incurable.

My question is, would the same language limitation apply to the MS Office 2007 installed in the laptop?

Note: I do not have any CDs and I can barely navigate on this laptop. Wireless is no go. I cannot even see how to run Windows Explorer!

But I felt that if I could find the product key for the Office package installed I could download it again from MS and install it on my own PC and set the language to English then.

Is that too much to ask?

Hi to all,

Nowadays every skill has a certification, like MCITP, CCNA and so on. What about the programming? For example, apart from the universal degrees, is there any certification on C++ programming language? Someone that wants to be employed in a e.g., company, will need it so much to prove his ability, I think.

A:Programming certification

In the "old days" you could sit for the CDP language and design exams through DPMA but I'm not aware of more modern certifications other than Microsoft's. A CDP certificate was as good as a doctorate to most companies. As it should be--The tests were pretty tough.

Basically what I'm trying to do is somehow automate a creation of a report via excel, first method I thought of was to use macros, but since the data that'll be included in the report will be on a different cell each time, macro might not work as I imagined it to be, then I thought of the IF function, I have not yet tried doing that, but would that work?

Here is a weird one and was wondering what might have been the cause.
I noticed that Skype had changed my language to a language  I could not read.
Unless I hit some weird short-cut on my keyboard to do this it would seem it did it itself.
I managed to change it back to English as I located the Language drop down and set it back to English.
Anyone else experienced this and was wondering if there is any cause for concern?

A:Skype language changed with out me...???

If it only happens the once, I wouldn't worry about it. It could have been some accidental key combination, more likely just a blip in Skype. If it starts happening on a more frequent basis then I would suggest posting a topic in the 'Web browsing and other internet applications' section of BC.

Hello, after getting too many viruses on this EeePc 1001PX Netbook I am trying to do a recovery but not seeing an English language option and even now when I try to go back to the original windows 7 I am still getting the recovery screen to select the language, what can I do here please? I have a win7 disk with Home Premium but this netbook came with "Starter" edition.

A:Eee Pc netbook recovery language problem?

When you get to screen in the recovery process that asks you to select a language, is there not a drop down arrow at the right hand end of the box listing the default language ? If you click on this you should get a list of all available languages. You should be able to scroll down this list to choose the language you want.
If you use the recovery option on this computer you will re-install Win 7 Starter. If you wish to use the Win 7 HP disc you possess then the installation will automatically format your hard drive as part of the install process. You need to be aware that both processes will wipe out your existing data, so this needs to be backed up first.
The complicating factor is that you say your computer is badly infected and the last thing you want to do is to reload any of these infections when you reinstate your data. To get around this, I suggest you use either empty memory sticks or an external drive but get it or them scanned on a known clean computer to verify they are empty and clean. Then back up your data, then scan your data on these drive(s), again on a known clean computer, before you re-install your data.

Are you saying that the language bar no longer shows up in the task bar?

If so, try this to get the language back in your task bar:

In an empty spot on your task bar, RIGHT click, choose Toolbars.

Click Language Bar to check it. See if it reappears.

If that doesn't work, you could try a system restore to a time just before the issue began.

Start menu/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.

Choose a restore point-click Next. Your computer will reboot. After you reboot, you will find out if the restore was successful.

If it is successfully restored, try adding the language bar.

I want to know if there is any method to call up the un-docked Language Bar or language menu pop up with a hotkey or a script, etc? I figure that since windows makes it possible to have the Language Bar undocked and appearing on the desktop, then there must be some code or something to be able to call it up.

Why? Convenience; and the means to quickly target a specific language without having to "alt+shift" and type a few keys to see which keyboard language has been activated until the correct keyboard language appears with the keystrokes.

In our office, we use several languages, and I have the taskbar hidden and am using another 3rd party dock. I would really like to be able to make the language choices pop up and select the language and then minimize the bar without playing roulette with the hot keys.

I am editing and revising documents that need to be in English (Australian).
I am in Australia, working for an Australian company that has set the default language set accordingly by default:

The Control Panel settings for language and keyboard seem correct (English-Australian and Us keyboard):

There was a thread on this forum with useful advice related to this topic here:

The conclusion from Kari, who seemed to have the most in depth knowledge (and performed the most testing) was that the Windows input language overrides the Office settings (not much use for the Office setting!?).

That said, it would seem that my system is in compliance with the best advice from that thread. However,
I keep getting the automatic spell check flagging words as misspelled according to the US dictionary.

I have selected the entire document (Ctrl-a) and set the proofing language to English(Australian) several times, but the problem keeps recurring.

Any ideas why?

A:Word 2010 Proofing language keeps reverting to English (US)

I may have solved my own problem. I went back to take a snapshot of the proofing language setting:

Then I realised I have probably just been selecting OK instead of "Set as Default" !

If I do that:

the message would seem to suggest that the fault may be with my NORMAL template,
and that it will be fixed if I click Yes.

So, I've done that, I will see if the problem goes away ....

That said, it seems unlikely this is the problem. Why would the current document revert to the NORMAL template settings for content revised/added? Wouldn't it revert to the Office (or apparently maybe Windows) default?

Or, if there is a setting associated with the NORMAL template, is this setting carried forward into the document when it is created? This seems possible, and more plausible that that the document would keep reverting to a language from the NORMAL template .... but if so, where is that setting adjusted?

Read on the internet some people that added both language in the keyboard layout, but that's not an interesting solution because first the French keyboard layout does all the English keys and second people tend to accidentaly switch language while typing
using shortcut or whatever

Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated
