  1. Hi Brownhornet , Early morning this way , 2.30 am , can't sleep , on Zoladex for my Prostate , hot flushes-full on too , no fun lol , anyway , Wondering which Core 2 Duo you pulled , wouldn't happen to be a E8400 by any Chance , and you'd sell . Reason is Lynne has my old pc running E6400 @2.13 with win 7 iffin my memory holds , thought i may give it a Boost an the E8400 would sure fit the bill , guess i'd be up for a Reformat , no problem there . Lots of Q's , thought i'd ask ok . Regards Philip .
  2. Terry1966 .. Thanks for that , pays to make sure what i can do on the Drive , as i stated i Don't defrag to often , don't see the Need , an Only Run CCleaner/M-Bytes Premium/Superantispyware about every 2 weeks or so , so i'll stick to that Regime , Your Knowledge Appreciated . Regards Philip.
  3. 1966Terry , Thanks for all the info , i'll look more into it later ok , by the way it's win 7 64bit Os ok . This from Toms Hardware last December what i Mentioned before , Yes, you can defrag a SSHD. Your O/S and data are written and stored on the HDD portion of the drive. The SSD portion of the drive is only used to cache the most frequently used data to speed up performance. That Said , Maybe i'm just better off Not to Defrag at All , as i Stated i don't do Very Often Anyway . More the Issue is I Do Run CCleaner Once a Fortnight as Normal , if i leave it in Default Mode Would that be Quite
  4. terry1966 . Terry , Question was a tad about all with SSHD Drive , Sorry for Poor Question , Yes , about Defrag as Well , as i found on Toms Hardware they say ok to Defrag as long as not the Cache , as that's on the SSD part of the Drive . Sort of why i said i was a Tad Confused ok , i just want to get it Right for the SSHD Drive ok . Regards Philip.
  5. terry1966 . Thanks for the reply , your right , all i do is run it in it's Default Settings , no driver wiper-reg scans ect , though i have done a DNS Cache Clear on the odd time , maybe i should give that a miss from now on then , your thoughts Appreciated . Regards Philip .
  6. Hi , I Cloned my 500gb Seagate to a New 1tb Seagate ST1000DX001 Drive , all Good , i believe i can Run Defrag , which i don't do that often anyway . What i am worried about is Running CCleaner , did quite a bit of Google Looking , i find it's a tad Confusion , so i thought i'd Ask here , so i Know Exactly what i Need/Don't Do , any Help Appreciated . Regards Philip .
  7. I Agree with kburra post 3 , Do a System Restore and see if that Solves all this Drama which has Annoyed you over a Week . Then , if all good , get Ereader from Somewhere Else . Philip.
  8. Only last week i had a simlar problem on reboots on this my win 7 64bit pc , drove me mad , first thought a virus , all good there though . Turned out to be a Broken Wire right where it Joins the Power Switch on the front panel on my Thermaltake Wing Rs Tower . Regards. Philip.
  9. I thought a Checksum Error was Related to a Bad Motherboard Battery , i'd Check the Time/Date just in Case ok . Philip .
  10. Not the Sharpest Tool in the shed this way , but if i had to Reinstall windows 7 for a 4th time in 30 Days , i'd be sure Looking hard at the Windows 7 Disk , maybe Scratched or Corrupt or such , or maybe even a Bad Hard Drive . I remember having a Similar Problem on an old XP machine 2006 era , be alright after a fresh install an then Problems would Restart ,turned out to be the Hard Drive .. Just a Thought ok. Regards , Philip.

  13. Thanks for all the tips ect , i tried till i'm blue in the face , still won't open Maximized , so i've gave up an Reinstalled Firefox on the new format , so at least it Opens Maximized . Regards.Philip..
  14. Back 3rd May i asked on this Problem , i never solved it then , from Quick Launch it Does Open Maximized ,Now , i decided after 3 years i'd do a Reformat , so i Wiped the drive an Reinstalled Win 7 64bit , have not installed Firefox , and i Still have this same Problem . Last time i followed TomGL2 advice , with no luck doing the Registry change , i've rt clicked ie in programs an Properties an selected Maximized , no luck , i tried what used to work on XP , select Maximized , then go File an click Exit , it don't work . I've Dragged it full , then Maximized , close , reopen , from Favourites/
  15. Hi TomGL2 , All i could find for this , 32-bit — en_windows_vista_sp2_x86_dvd_342266.iso , was a Torrent download , so i gave that a miss ok .. After running SFC /SCANNOW Thursday , an it showed it fixed some problems , an couldn't fix others, i decided to rerun SFC after it had been rebooted yesterday , an it gave the All Clear No Problems , is it Possible it needed a reboot so it Could Fix the Remaining Problems ... So i think i'll hold off an see if further Blue Screens happen then take it from there , as i have a Spare Win7 64bit OEM unused here and i may decide to go that way , but i am
  16. Hi , I was reading a post by Fred Langa on doing this with Win7 , my question is , i have Vista 32 bit , with service pk 2 Installed , my oem disk has Service pack 1 on it , do i Have to remove service pk 2 from the pc before i can do the Nondestructive Reinstall . Reason i ask , he mentions if the disk you have don't have service pk 1 on it , then remove it from the pc before you start , so my thinking is it's the same with Service pk 2 on my Vista . I'd like to find a Full guide on doing this with Vista , but so far i've not been lucky ,all i find is for win7 so , do i just follow
