  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
  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:
  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
  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 th
  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
  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.
  16. Are you trying to upload a .zip to online file storage? Are you trying to cram all you can onto a small flash drive? Want to email some huge file quickly? This tip should help you then Anyone who frequently archives files or sends things around is familiar with the various compression tools used such as WinZip WinRAR 7Zip ect. These tools usually get the job done reasonable well. However there are some files that will not compress much at all or that are still to large even once compressed into an archive. The solution is a better tool to compress with. Yeah I know your probably think
  17. So as I sit here planning out another outrageous system I find myself stuck while choosing ram. Now I have been at this for a while and I have an idea what I am looking for but the problem is that I cannot make a decision because there are a couple of questions I need answers to before I can make the decision properly. So here is what I have already come up with thus far. 1. Your choices in ram are limited when looking for something really really extreme. 2. The configuration your planning can easily limit choices further. 3. Unless you have a money tree in your back yard y
  18. No idea I do not use Vista. I can however dig around and see if there is a utility for Vista that does this. If I find it I will post it in the Vista tips section.
  19. While manually setting the page file initially defrags it because it is empty it will still fragment during use. But as I also mentioned running page defrag does more than just defrag the pagefile it also defrags the registry which can make a lot of difference depending on the system and how large your registry has gotten. I always recommend setting the pagefile manually to start because it helps lock it in place. After that defragging is recommended as well because even setting it manually can leave it in more than one place on the drive at times. Rare as it may be the last couple of time
  20. I would recommend defragging the pagefile and hard drive both in either order. You can defrag the files as normal then run the pagedefrag or you can run page defrag first and then run a normal defrag. Page defrag only defrags the pagefile and such while a standard defrag is for all your files such as windows and installed programs ect. Remember that page defrag will also defrag your system registry which is a real good thing. It does not defrag normal files though so you must also run a standard defrag with it to completely defrag the system. Also about compatability. This does wor
  21. Yeah I was actually expecting something that would speed up the time it takes to buffer the video.
  22. Yeah I really don't get this. Can't I just let the video buffer out then move the slider on the movie around to get the same basic effect?
  23. I also like mediafire. http://www.mediafire.com/ Fairly unlimited and you can upload pretty big files now. I think the only actual limitation is the file size. You can upload as much as you like though and store and share it and also have unlimited number of downloads for your files. Oh yeah and no signups or external programs required. I actually considered getting the pro account of this one.
  24. Yeah it does work. I just tried it and i notice a pretty significant difference when loading large pages that I visit on a daily basis.
  25. You can visit this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb897426.aspx And download PageDefrag v2.32 by Mark Russinovich Run the program and tell it to defrag on next boot. Restart the machine and before windows loads you will get a blue screen with the defrag message. At this point you can simply hit Esc to stop it or let it do it's thing and defrag the PF. Defraging the PF does a couple of things. For instance today when I went to defrag the harddrives I noticed that the PF (That green block of unmovable files when you defrag a drive) was split up into 2 blocks
