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.)

Hi. Im just wondering if ne1 knows the best programming language to chosse. I've tried dark basic to make 3D games. Im wondering is there any programming language that can do everything. Like make 2D and 3D games, have internet commands, registry commands, system commands. I dont think visual basic. NET can make 3D games. Ijust need some suggestions on any good programming languages.


A:Programming Language

You can make games in anything. It just depends on your skills and devotion.

If you want to make a game worth anything you should choose the language you are the most comfortable with. And also try to get a hold of some realism when judging your skills

You don't even have to use a programming language to make a (not so impressive) game.
Have you heard of tools like "Games Factory", "PIE 3D", Milkshape 3D?

what to go into programming which is the best language?

Relevancy 65.36%

I would like to join the up and coming programing revolution - but don't know what programming learn for the future (which would be the easiest and best language to learn ).



A:Which Programming language is best

It all depends on what the application is. In the earlier days and to some extent today - COBOL is for business applications, Fortran is for scientific programming - that's the legacy.

Start with C. Learn an assembler language - Intel would be best. While your at it learn to drive a symbolic debugger for C which can look at assembled instructions, set breakpoints, watch points, change memory, and step through source code statements until the program blows up at the problem in your program - and you can inspect the flow of data in the program to find out how it caused the problem.

As a part of learning C, learn data structures - which is fundamental to programming in any language. Learn about arrays, linked lists, trees and other advanced data structures like cactii and BTrees.

Learn advanced topics like threads and how to synchronize independent data events for parallel programming - that will be the future - check out Intel's Nehalem processor due to debut in late 2008 at Ars Technica web site.

The learn about inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction with private and public classes of instances of objects in C++.

For Artificial Intelligence learn Lisp, or Scheme.

For Logic Programming learn Prolog.

You can learn Java, but it is best applied at the mobile device level - although some corps. use it for applications on the Web which is somewhat top heavy from reports.

If you want to do systems software engineering, learn more about hardware, and study Computer Language Theory, and Operating Systems like Unix/Linux Internals.

Search the Software Development forum for posts initiated by my member name, lotuseclat79, and the keyword Memory - I recently posted links to a series of excellent articles on the topic of what every programmer should know about memory written and posted on another website.

hi guys! can you recommend me some good programming language for beginners just like me? my friend in school recommends Turbo this a suitable language for beginners to learn?

any help would be greatly appreciated..thanks guys...

A:Programming Language

I would suggest firstly is to make decision - what do you want to program, or write code for..? Cause different languages are good for different purposes, for example if you to write for mobile programming then Java would be used... and so on... All C languages are good as well as Java, the principles are mostly the same, the sintaxis are different.
It's difficult to suggest which is the best car..? Since it depends what are you going to use it for..? Same here, do not rush, think what you want to do and then go for it, all languages have tutorials, dedicated to language websites, forums, books and so on. If you love maths and you know it good programing is for you, not much of help though... but...
Good luck!

I have a 15 yo son who wants to learn how to program. He has played with Delphi and lot of the on line games. Unfortunately my experience goes back to the heady days of Pascal , basic and assembler so I can not give him sound advice.

I notice here the two most common "starters" are VB and C++. Are these two good to learn on or should I guide him to another language if these are to hard.

Appreciate the help


A:Programming Language for a 15 yo Son

Leopard is a good place to start. It is a relatively easy language to learn and he can produce his own exe's. It may be too basic for him, but you can take a look at it. And the price is right.

Philosophies vary on whether it is a good idea to learn a language that may be very different from what a full-fledged and more commonly used language is, but the principles of programming are very much the same. My own experience seems to be that learning a language like BASIC09, even though greatly different from later C++, actually informed it and allowed for greater flexibility with the new language.

Hi All...

At work, i've got to write a complicated quotation program.
The catch is that i've already written it - on a Apple II many years ago in BASIC...

Now ive got to do it all over again for the PC...
But i don't know which BASIC program to use - Ive only heard of Visual BASIC - any others out there...

If anyone can remember far back, i'd like it as similar as APPLE II Basic which is almost identical to the Sinclair Spectrum's Basic..

100 ?"Hello"
110 Input a$
120 If a$="goodbye" then gosub 500
etc etc...

I know i could use emulators, but i'd rather not in this case...

Anyone help me??

Hi all,
I am taking college classes, and my first programming experience of any kind was last semester, with an intro to programming class. This semester I am taking the first part of a two-semester class in Java. I am finding it pretty difficult. I am wondering if it is just me, or is picking Java (out of any other language) sort of hard to learn for a first-time programmer/total beginner? Was there an easier one I could start with? I want to go for a BA or MA in Computer Science, and one of the requirements to get into either program is two semesters of java. In addition to reading Java Programming by Joyce Farrell for class, I bought Java For Dummies as sort of a preparatory book. Would anyone recommend any other Java books that they've read?

A:First programming language - Java


Welcome to TSG. Java is hard, right, but that is just at the beginning. After that if you pay enough time, effort and attention, it will not. For an example, when I was writing my first hello world program(one year before), I told my lecturer I am not gonna MAKE IT. I told him I am not gonna make a single WORKING program in my whole life time. But that was the beginning. Now I am on my way to make a program which will work based on the user's voice. See, that is now. At the beginning anything is hard, even the world's most easiest thing. But, when you do it with courage and attention, it will become a hobby and of course easy.

And there is another thing I learn t from my self based experience. That is, do not limit your self to the text book. Learn by searching by your self. Always try to become a challenge to other people by trying to get more knowledge than them (yes, education is a competition). And to be honest, I made contacts with lot of Java programmers in all around the world, and that is the golden knowledge base of mine(One of my friends in TSG was my first Java helper) . Their knowledge always helped me whenever I am stuck. You also do it by sticking up with TSG and other technical forums.

Love your failures, they will tell you where you will get wrong. Never get disappointing by saying that is hard. Whenever you find something new, and if you can try it out, do it. Do not wait until your lecturer asks you to do it.

Help your friends to learn Java. Their mistakes will show you unbelievable nice points! Correct their code for them. Do not wait until they ask for help, just jump and help .

In programming, it is pretty much normal to forget something you have learnt. Who cares, just go through the books and refresh your knowledge rather than worrying about your memory loss. People forget, that is why the books are written.

Create programs by your self. Do not wait until your lecturer ask you to do, because they may never ask! Don't think your homework as a homework. Do it for your knowledge, not because the pressure given to you, do it for your own knowledge.

If you are interesting in Java books, I recommend "Head First Java" book. Buy the latest version of the book (The latest was 2nd edition which covered Java5. Now Java 7 is up, they might have updated the book too. But it doesn't matter, the basics has never changed, and will never change!!). I recommend it because it is written by Kathey Sierra, the Java promoter and Java game developer, who is working for Sun Java Corporation (Now Oracle) and Bert Bates. And it is a production of O'Rielly, who did a good job for Web 2.0.

The other best resource is internet. In most cases I refer, because they have very good and understandable Java examples. Apart from that, use google

If you want to get into "serious" programming you want to learn Java and then move on to C++.

Why Parrot is Important.

Think writing a compiler is difficult? It is—unless you use Parrot, a complete compiler construction kit. With Parrot, crafting a new programming language is as easy as authoring a new website.

Quote Reference: Why Parrot is Important (Linux Magazine)
"Good tools lower the risk of trying out new ideas. Spending 10 years implementing a radical new concept in programming languages, alien to users of existing languages, is a daunting prospect. Spending a few weeks, on the other hand, is quite tolerable. Successful experiments can quickly go on to solve more problems, while the unsuccessful ones can be quickly set aside, applying the lessons learned to the next language."Click to expand...

I have an idea for some interactive "flashcards", an educational program, where you test/educate yourself for vocabulary words.

My question is "What computer language should I try to develop this in?"

I visualize that the program would just be text display text, but it would be nice to display some graphics.

About 30 yrs. ago I did some programming in Basic & Fortran. You can get Basic, Python, or Scratch on-line for no charge. The learning curve would also be less in those languages.

If some publisher would be interested in the idea, would he want it programmed in Java, C++, or Visual Basic? or would Basic, Python, or Scratch be good enough?

I am retired, have a lot of time, but few financial resources, and this project is a labor of love rather than a professional move.

Any advice will be appreciated,
Thank you

A:Programming "Flashcards", in what computer language?

Microsoft gives several compilers for free, in my opinion, since you know BASIC, then develop the application with Visual BASIC. Personally, I prefer the C languages, such as C++ and C#, since I find the syntax quicker to write than BASIC.

Python and Java are based around C and C++ too.

Personally, from developer forums and Q/A, I've seen most people develop in C# or C++.

I installed Windows 8 Pro and installed an additional language(let's say it's B) pack, changed system display language to B, and system locale to B.

And I got infinite BSOD after installing some drivers(not related to language pack, just I made mistake installing old programs), so I 'refresh'ed the system.

Guess what, after the refresh, system display was set to English(united kingdom, which is default), AND system locale remained as language B.

This is the problematic part;
1.I CANNOT change system display language to B, it says it's unavailable.
2.The system regards the language pack is already installed because I can still use B as system locale.
3.I cannot reinstall or remove the language pack. LPKSETUP doesn't detect B.

SO i'm pretty much stuck, and I don't want to reinstall just to change the system display language.

Is there any solution to this(removing/reinstalling language pack)?

Basically, post what's your favourite browser and why.

I have firefox because I love the way it's set out and all the add-ons that can increase the speed, for example fasterfox.

A:Favourite Browser - Post your's here

Opera 10.5x for me. It's fast, it's rendering engine is great and it has so many features.

Like for example:
- Opera Turbo
- Opera Link
- Mail Client
- Torrent Client
- Opera Unite
- Widgets

And of course the very useful 'Click to login' button to log in with one click on websites.

The UI and all the themes are appealing aswell.

Recently, I upgraded my browser from IE6 to IE8. Now it takes FOREVER (> 1 minute) for the Add Favourite box to come up when I click on Add to Favourites, especially when adding the first favourite from a new window, or when browser is first opened. I am running XP with Service Pack 2. My husband is running IE8 on his laptop (Vista) and on his desktop (XP), and doesn't have this issue. We have compared all our settings, and I've changed mine to correspond to his, but I still have the problem. I'd just dump IE8 and go back to IE6, yet that's not really a viable option, as several websites I visit frequently -- primarily YouTube -- say they will no longer support IE6 in the very near future. Any ideas? Thank you in advance for any and all help anyone can offer!

A:Adding Favourite in IE8 very slow

Hey, this is Feran with the IE Outreach Team. Try managing your add-ons or even running IE with add-ons disabled. To do this go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) and let me know if that helps. Or in IE you can go to tools ->manage add-ons and try manually disabling add-ons (such as those with more than .2 second load time).

Hey all,

I've been playing more and more BF2142 lately, and have noticed myself with a distinct preference to playing on the EU side. I just find the weapons and vehicles to be 'tougher' and 'meaner' if that makes any sense. This got me thinking, 'is there a division among BF2142 players towards one faction or another?'

Let's find out what players think of the game!

BTW - if you contribute to this poll, post your favorite weapons, etc.

A:BF2142 - Your favourite faction?

I've only just started playing 2142 as I've been playing BF2 for the last two months, and I can't get used to it! I've only just got the hang of BF2 and there's a big difference IMO between the two. I don't like the idea that you have to unlock the defibs; if you're a medic you should have that kit already.

Maybe I'll like it the more I play it. Who knows?!?!?!

This seems to be a peculiar problem. There is a financial site I use and whichis important to me but I can hardly ever login successfully. A few weeks ago I wrote to the CEO to ask if someone would fix it for me and he was great and for a while I was able to login. Now its no go again.
Can anyone suggest what might be causing this. I have no other login problems with the many sites I use which require it. I don't think itis anything to do with cookies as I have checked this and all seems well.

Yesturday I found out my laptop had the everyones favourite virus.. Its Ramnit A virus About a month before this I had gotten a windows command processor virus which I thought had been deleted as my computer was no longer slow or had any popups and did not detect any further viruses My computer has been fine since then I havent Its everyones favourite virus.. noticed any chances however yesturday I decided to download ESET online scanner just to make sure everything was still okay I have AVG but I dont exactly think much of it Anyway ESET reported that I had two ramnit Its everyones favourite virus.. A viruses and adwares which I quarantined and deleted However from what I gather about ramnit is that its pretty much the big cheese in viruses and that it replicates so that when you delete it it reappears And the best way is to get rid of it is to reformat the laptop Is there truely no way to get rid of it completely without reformating Also sigh I used my USB on my infected laptop which I then used on another computer I read the virus can transfer to computers this way I checked the computer with ESET which I used the USB on and it did not report any viruses do you think it is clean or is the virus hiding Should I no longer use the USB just to be sure Once I found the virus on my laptop and deleted it I turned off internet connection and shut it down and have not booted it up since and if there is no cure im going to reformat it but I dont have the time to do that right now but I need to get some documents from that laptop how can I do this without using USB Is the laptop safe to use without internet connection I just need to read through some word documents I dont use any bank information or any other important stuff on that laptop Ive read some stuff about the virus but im not sure if it deletes documents or corrupts files the longer it stays on the laptop Im not sure how long its been on my laptop if it installed with windows command processor then probably about a month but it hasnt done anything yet Wow this has gotten long but I also wanted to know if anyone knows why AVG did not detect it at all And if reformating what files can I take from the laptop Im not sure what exactly is corrupted Thankyou and sorry for the essay

A:Its everyones favourite virus..

Try reading this article on the limitations of anti-virus.
"pretty much the big cheese in viruses and that it replicates so that when you delete it it reappears?"
This is pretty much true for all viruses, and replication is how they are defined.
If a process is running actively in RAM, it can create multiple copies of virus files, so the process needs to be stopped first. Most removal tools will do this, or you can use a tool like rkill for this.

Hi i hope you can help me with this problem.
my son plays runescape or something,but for 2 days he gets an error message which reads-
The instruction at "0x10094c3b" referenced memory at "0x00dac3d8".
The memory could not be "read".
click on ok to terminate program.
thank you in advance.

A:Son Can Not Play His Favourite Game

We'll need a bit more information. The exact name of the game would help - as would the make and model of the system that he's using.

Often these problems can be solved by uninstalling and then reinstalling the program (game). Make sure to get all the updates for the game also.

If that doesn't fix it, then there's more troubleshooting that's needed.

I like Office XP the best, i didn't like 2003 because it's too blue, the toolbars well it kinda look like an ocean. with icons. i like the toolbar 3D look, but just too blue. I know you can change the colour to green or silver, but it'll then be too green or too silver.

Mine is without a doubt IE I value my privacy and I do not trust ANYTHING NEW especially from Microsoft They have become quite intrusive The only difference between IE and newer IE versions is the newer ones understand more CSS thats it You can have IE in quot protected mode quot version? Whats favourite your the same as the newer IEs if you want by changing your security zone setting to HIGH thats what the newer IEs do for this so called quot Protected mode quot Its funny how they say quot LOOK THIS NEW SECURITY FEATURE quot Protected mode quot Whats your favourite version? quot WHEN IT FACT THERE IS NOTHING NEW ABOUT IT AT ALL I currently use MyIE for general surfing as MyIE is even prettier then IE It has tabs etc I dont use IE directly very often but IE in my opinion IS THE LAST GOOD VERSION OF IE The newer ones are not as customisable are more ugly and i dont think anyone can say FOR SURE that it doesnt spy on you I am quite big on privacy

A:Whats your favourite version?

You're apparently very blinkered in your opinions. Since IE6, successive versions have greatly improved page-loading times & much better security even without the protected mode being enabled.

Not to mention tabs. IE6 doesn't have them. As far as I'm concerned that alone is reason enough to hate it.

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 can t download updates etc on the software that is quot language quot aware NOTE I have called Logitech who didn t have anyone in their support area who could help me We found one older version of the setpoint software that was showed up mainly in English although a few of the choices for location etc were displayed in a Russian language drop down list even then I am guessing that there is some registry entry etc that the logitech and some HP software look at in order to provide a universal install program and the techs I talked too didn t know about Any help would be greatly appreciated nbsp

One of the features I like in Windows 7 is that I can customise the Favourite Folders that appear in the save options. For example I can in include any folder in the save list for most applications. This works for microsoft Word, IE etc. However some applications like Adobe reader and a few others do not have my favourite folders when I go to save. They just have the basic: Recent places/Desktop/Libraties/Computer/Network. Does anyoner know of a way to include my favourite folders in the list for Adobe reader and these other applications as well?

Kind Regards

Hey, i've recently been playing around with the "Favourite Links" in the navigation pane of Explorer and adding quite a few shortcuts etc.

When i try to add a link to a program it works, but the shortcut dissapears off of the navigation bar. Interestingly enough if i open the folders panel and then click "more" under the favourite links the shortcuts are displayed. What i want to know is; is there a way for me to keep program shortcuts on the favourite links pane?

I've attached some screenshots to illustrate the situation.

Rename&Media Converter are both utilities i only ever use when browsing files, so it would be nice if this worked.

A:Program files folder is in different language than display language

It seems to me that it would have to stay English (or the language the coders named it) as the programs look to those folders and their exact names/wording for files to use. If someone made for example call of duty then translated duty to Greek and the code looked for duty, it would only find the translation and it would fail to find the thing its looking for.

I have no info to back this up but its my theory as why things like documents can change but not program files folder names.
