  1. That's one of the keyboard shortcuts listed here, http://forums.pcpits...ortcuts-for-cp/ I updated it last week to reflect the Alt + F4 shutdown option.

Open "My Computer" either from Programs or Windows + E 2. Right click the drive you wish to check and click on "Properties" 3. Click on the Tools tab, and click on the Check button under Error checking. 4. If no errors are found, you can either "Cancel" (close) or scan the drive anyway. 5. If errors are found, click "Repair drive"
  4. Just an Update; Works for the Release Preview too.
  5. If you Google for Windows 8 Consumer Preview watermark removal, you'll find plenty of sites that tell you how to do it by downloading a patch file, renaming the shell32.dll.mui file and replacing it blah, blah, blah. I ran across this one that takes less than 2 minutes and it works perfectly on x64. http://www.my7apps.f...hp?do=file&id=7 Once downloaded and opened, click the box @ "Remove All Watermark" Then click "Apply New Settings" Then just reboot and change the desktop background. Watermark-be-gone.
  6. This guide contains Registry changes, PCPitstop and I are not responsible for registry changes you make to your machine. Do so at your own risk and back up the registry before making any changes. First thing to do is make a new folder for your icons in a place of your choosing and name it "HardDriveIcons". Next, collect your icons and place them in the "HardDriveIcons" folder. Note; All icons should be 256x256 in size w/ .ico extension. Now, open "Regedit" and navigate to; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes Expand "Classes" and scroll down to "Applications" (if that key does not ex
  7. I'd be willing to test it, if still available.
  8. As far as I know, no you cannot send a fax through a wireless connection, due to the fact that a fax requires tone, which would require a dial-up modem. There are however E-Fax services for hire. Hope this helped.
  9. Great Defragger Been using it for a while now.
  10. Yep! Leave it to Symantec/Norton to try and sell you more junk. I don't pity the people who fall for this either.

  14. (Quote) "How to defragment your pagefile in Vista By opening a Command Prompt session with administrative privileges, you can use the defragmentation program with various command-line options. (For details, type defrag /? at the command prompt.). In addition to enabling scripts to incorporate defragmentation tasks, the command-line approach offers an option to analyze and report on the fragmentation status of a disk without actually carrying out the defrag operation. Type defrag c: –a –v, for example, to generate a verbose report on the condition of drive C. (You can add >%temp%\rep

  16. If you have tried M1918A1's suggestion and it didn't help, give this a read; http://www.pchell.com/support/aboutblank.shtml
  17. If I may suggest, you seem to have 6 or 7 old JAVA updates which should be removed, you can remove them manually through Add/Remove or you can install JavaRa, which will remove old versions and install the most current JRE6 Update 12. You also seem to be running System Mechanic by Iolo which is also listed about 5 or 6 times, I would remove this program, from personal experience and from others, I have found that this program does more harm than good. I would also remove TweakNow and RegAlyzer, not needed since you have CCleaner. For all around system maintenance, might I suggest, Advanced S
  18. Here you go lugnut; http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-22_11-5928902.html Hope this helps and as duanester pointed out, the raid drivers on a flash drive won't work as you need an installed OS to recognized the mass storage device/USB device. You can use the same slipstream method to integrate all your drivers in to one bootable CD or USB Flash Drive. Another point I might add is make sure your motherboard supports booting from a USB device, should be located in the BIOS under boot device options.
  19. First, you get PCTools confused with PCPitstop and now your confusing Browser Defender with Cyberdefender. I have posted links from both Browser Defender and McAfee Site Advisor which support my claim that a few of the sites that you recommended, contain and/or have malicious and/or unwanted downloads, you, on the other hand, have not. I'm not a "self-appointed forum policeman" I just wouldn't have posted links to sites with questionable downloads. So, as far as I'm concerned for your links. I'm done here. typo
  20. I think you have that confused with PCTools.com. MSA did agree with Browser Defender as freewarefiles.com as having malicious and/or unwanted downloads. http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/freewaref...;os_ver= As for the other 2 sites, MSA did say they didn't find any significant problems, they also did not say that they were safe sites. No red flags, but enough yellow ones to make you stop and think. http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/sixfiles....;os_ver=
  21. Once you've completed the test and are on the Summary page, copy the URL in the browsers address bar and paste that in your reply here.
  22. Don't take it personally, it's not against you. I'm just rebuking the web sites you posted as having potentially dangerous and/or malicious content. I trust my security programs and have never had any spyware, malware or viruses in the 15 years I've been using them and I plan to keep it that way. Thank you
  23. No, I'm not wrong. Have a look at the following links, http://www.browserdefender.com/site/freewarefiles.com/ http://www.browserdefender.com/site/sixfiles.com/ http://www.browserdefender.com/site/techsupportalert.com/ You should be a little more careful about posting links to sites that contain potentially dangerous downloads.
