  • System Specifications:
    ECS A790GXM-A Mobo, Phenom X4 940 (OC 3.2Ghz), 4GB Kingston Hyper X 1066 RAM, Dual Raptor X HDDs, SoundBlaster X-fi Fatality Sound, Sapphire X1950GT 512MB Video.
  1. Didn't seem to do anything at all for me. I installed the x64 version since that is what I am on and I couldn't notice a difference at all. I use a lot of raw images so this would have been great but I think I will just remove it since it did nothing for me.
  2. Is this only for people who are working without a connection? I guess I just don't understand why the problem would occur to begin with or why you couldn't just go to adobe.com and get the latest version installed and move on.
  3. This is actually more specific to your sound card. The extreme cards had drivers issues in 7 right from the start and there are solutions for this. You could head over to www.sevenforums.com where others with the same card as you have found ways to make it work properly. I use the Fatal1ty series SB and had no trouble.
  4. I agree it is interesting. However if you read what the guy is saying then it really is true that you cannot use over 4Gb in 32bit because of possible driver issues and also because no one operation can go above the amount you would be limited to under 4gb per process so you would still need 64bit to handle more memory in a single process. What that really translates to is that while it is possible to address over 4Gb in 32bit it is limited per process and could cause a driver issue. Also note that when enabling PAE you are warned of possible driver issues and this is exactly why. So your limited in 32bit even though you can go around the limit because going around the limit has it's issues.
  5. If you want to share files between other computers on your network and you are having issues accessing those files. You most likely are having a permissions issue. To allow full access to files you are sharing you will need to follow these steps: 1. Right click the folder you wish to share and choose "Properties" from the list. You should see: 2. Click the "Security" Tab You should see: 3. Where it says "Group or user names:" If you DO NOT see "Everyone" in the box you will need to add it. (If you DO see it you need to modify it Skip to Step 5) You should see: 4. If you DO NOT see "Everyone" listed you will need to click the "Edit" button under the "Groups or user names" box. Like this: In the next box that pops up click on the "Add..." button. Like this: Where it says "Enter the object names to select (examples):" Type "Everyone" without quotes. Click "OK". Like this: 5. Back under the "Security" tab in the "Properties" dialog. Under the "Group or user names" box click the "Edit..." button. In the box that pops up click on "Everyone" and then check the "Allow" box for "Full control" Click "Apply" then click "OK". Like this: 6. Now your Permissions are set properly you can set the folder to be shared. To do this you will need to click on the "Sharing" tab in the properties dialog next to the "Security" tab. You should see: 7. Under the "Network File and Folder Sharing" box is a "Share..." button. Click it. Like this: In the box that pops up type in a name for the folder you are sharing. Click the "Share" button. Like this: In the next box that pops up click the "Done" button. Like this: Your all set. All users on your network can now fully access all files your sharing from the new shared folder.
  6. That is exactly why I posted this. There were so many people including myself who had this problem and I thought this would be a great place to post the answer
  7. For those of you who want to record what you are hearing over your speakers/headset. You will need to un-hide and enable recording options. If you are using a Creative Sound Blaster sound card this option will be called "What U Hear" if you are using another audio device such as Realtek on-board or generic sound devices this option will be called "Stereo Mix". For the tutorial I am going to show how to un-hide and enable the "What U Hear" option. The same steps may be followed for the "Stereo Mix" option also. First open your audio options. "Start/Control Panel/Sound" Now go to the "Recording" tab. You will need to right click and check the following options: Now that the hidden options are visible you can change the settings to enable them. Right click on the "What U Hear" option (Stereo Mix for non Sound Blaster devices) and Set the device to default: Once the device is set as default you will be able to use the "What U Hear"/"Stereo Mix" option in your applications to record the audio you are currently hearing over your speakers/headset. If you wish to record from the mic or use it in a game you can come back to this tab in the audio options and right click the mic and set it as default again. I am sure there is probably a way to use both the "What U Hear"/"Stereo Mix" while still using the mic but I have not gotten that far since I only need to record audio once in a while. So I generally just leave the mic default until I am ready to record audio then I switch for that operation. I hope this helps all of those who have had issues recording audio being played back over the speakers/headset.
  8. This is also exactly what I do. You should set your PF to 1.5 times the amount of ram you have installed as a fixed size set on a separate drive from windows and then defrag it once. After that your set until you reload your system again.
  9. Nice attitude there champ. But hey just so others can make a decision for them self. This table is a test conducted with various compression tools and it shows the results for compression ratio time taken and so on. This list shows many many compression tools not just the common tools most know of. Link: Compression Tools Test Results KGB ranks 14th with a whopping compression ratio. Funny enough the top couple of slots on this test are actually newer variations of the KGB compression tool. You should not be so quick to claim something is junk or spam until you have seen the same results on everyone else's system and not just your own. I found this program to have the best compression of all tools I tried. And you also took my thread topic extremely literal. I could have made the topic "cram 10 pounds of crap in a 1 pound bag!" for all it matters yet you decided to take it so serious and literal...
  10. Try it with a large video file.
  11. Glad to hear you were able to find the problem. It's always a pain when you have to wait for things to become compatible with the latest versions of what your using.
  12. This is not a change to internet explorer it is a change to the explorer shell in windows. If you had a crash with security in internet explorer then it might have been due to any number of things from compatibility to a bad install. The changes suggested above cause the explorer shell to run in it's own process and by separating it from other processes helps keep it from bringing down the rest of the system with it if it locks or crashes. So you might want to start digging around for an answer to why internet explorer had an issue you might be able to fix the problem easily depending on what caused it.
  13. I'm actually surprized at your results. I used to use 7zip because it had the best compression but this actually worked better for me much better for what I was compressing. What types of files did you test this with?
  14. You can and that has a similar effect but it is not the same thing. I would recommend doing both for the most benefit.
  15. Anyone using windows has probably experienced a crash from explorer failing to respond. You can avoid the entire system locking up by making a simple change in the way explorer is handled. What you will do is make explorer run in it's own process. I would not recommend this for an average user with an older computer. This would be recommended for those with 2gb or more ram multi-core processors help a lot also. This will not kill your system performance but since you are adding stability at a slight decrease to performance you would not want to do this unless you have resources to spare. Anyways if you have plenty of ram and a fast processor you probably won't see any difference in performance just a more stable reliable system. So here it is. Click Start/Run and type "regedit" Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced Look for the value "SeparateProcess". If available set its value to 1 (If you do not see it read on) If the value did not exist then add a DWORD key by the name "SeparateProcess" and set its value to 1. This will run Explorer in a seperate process and if explorer stops responding or crashes out you can just hit "ctrl alt del" and shut the machine down normally from there. The advantage is that your computer will not lock up or crash just because explorer did making the system a bit more stable. But like I said you will use a little more resources since explorer is a process of it's own. Those with modern systems would not even notice a difference in performance though.
