    Computer running way too slow and hanging up

    Look at your task manager. Where is the bottleneck? What's sucking up all the resources. Is it CPU cycles, drive activity or memory usage (which I doubt if you have 16 GB installed) Do you know how to check that stuff with the task manager? It should tell you everything you need to move on and...

    Windows 10 Adobe Acrobat PRO DC 2020.009.20063

    Honestly I have been pretty busy lately which given the last 10 weeks isn't a bad thing. If it is calling home that's a fairly easy thing to check. Bring up a CMD prompt , start it as an admin. and at the prompt enter "netstat" <no quotes> while the program in question is hopefully starting up...

    Windows 10 Adobe Acrobat PRO DC 2020.009.20063

    It's not the first time I have said this. From the info I have been able to gather if you have installed any (I'm guessing any, the correct word might be some) free Adobe products something is loaded that prevents the normal cracks from working. odoneout's experience along with other's seems to...

    Best Version of Office?

    Just to throw my 2 cents in I avoid Office when I can, but I stumble across it all the time. So other than the 2007 enterprise, VLK or whatever else you care to call it, it's my understanding all you can do with later versions is fool the activation module for another trial period and the crack...

    Best Version of Office?

    OK for those who have had some long term experience with Office they have found, what's the best version to just install and doesn't require constant fiddling around with? Something you could install, is permanently activated without any recurring activation fixes. Does such a thing exist in...

    hard drives

    Since we are on the subject Asus has been on a long slow decline for quite some time. When Asus wouldn't warrant their mobo guarantee when the electrolytic capacitors swelled and failed blaming it on the caps manufacturer they fell out of favor with me. They also began to assume a position like...

    hard drives

    Take the cmos battery out for ten minutes (the round button battery). That will reset the BIOS to defaults. You will have to set the date and time again but leave everything else alone and see what happens. EDIT: If the above fails you might want to head over to 1337x and have a search for...

    VMware vCenter Converter Standalone

    "which is useful especially for software testers " lol I guess you could call us that. This program can save some of you a lot of heartache and hair-pulling.

    Robocopy data that is in use

    That was my point. Windows is not going to let that happen, period. I am wondering if there's a way to access those files using another O/S running concurrently with Windows but that's way, way beyond my skill set. We have some pretty clever members here. Maybe someone might jump in with a...

    Own an iPhone? Better Listen Up!

    I wonder if the luster of the iPhone will ever wear off. Just goes to show you what a marketing genius Steve Jobs was. He may be gone but his memory lives on in this special edition iPhone. LOL Seriously I can't think of one thing an iPhone does that a premium Android phone can't equal or exceed...

    Robocopy data that is in use

    That is one very unique and confusing set of conditions. So let me get this straight. Are you exchanging data real time between both systems while they're are both online and active? It doesn't sound like a simple back up. If open database files are in the mix you should already know the answer...

    Nice work Klemc. It's amazing what springs out of a mind that is forced to idle. Keep going and keep sharing. Thanks.

    Anybody Else Get This Email From Linksys?

    Well that's the rub. This is a centralized hub used to access all your devices with limits. It has no bearing on an individual device. And yeah you right that WAP54G was a favorite target. That lost Linksys a huge chunk of cred. I have one of their super models I got for free from work that's...

    FDM the best IDM alternative

    Torrents? What torrent is seeding at 80MB/s? I have 1 Gigabit Fiber to the premise nutty low latency and my ISP has me 10% over-provisioned. If I get 3MB/s from a torrent I celebrate. That's if the asshats aren't holding the torrent to 97% for days. Exactly how long have you been around the Net...

    FDM the best IDM alternative

    My old Usenet group turned to garbage. In our heyday this was copying a dbl sided DVD and compressing the video to fit onto a single side DVD-R using Pegasys video encoder. The only other alternative at the time was DVD Shrink which was a POS and produced choppy pixelated video that was at the...

    Mobilism vs. LuluBox

    Well I got a redirect to https://www.slant.co/topics/2175/~best-google-play-store-alternative#1 I wouldn't suggest anybody running over there with their phone looking for treasures for all the reasons I stated. I have a Chromebook and a couple of hacked Android devices that Google Play isn't...

    Anybody Else Get This Email From Linksys?

    It's legit. It's very scary that this would happen to a company selling a product like Linksys. It's a legit email, I checked before clicking through. This is what happens when some computer savvy people get bored. It doesn't say that anything malicious was done other than the entry. In my day...
