I can't figure it out but for whatever reason, my computer won't read any disks other than music cd's and movies. I spent over 2 hours trying to install TurboTax onto my computer the other day only to find that I can't load ANY of my cd-roms.

Hopefully it's just something wrong with the settings but I can't tell.

If it helps, when I open Device Manager, I see this:

I have never had problems with XP until I bought a PC (HP) which came pre loaded with XP. I ran it before but it was a comp that I built. I think due to the settings that HP has in place I am having trouble changing a file for a program that I installed so that it is not read only. I have half a clue about it but not enough to go into things and make changes. The tech rep from the software co said that I need to load safe mode to make the changes that need to be made.

Most people may think I'm crazy, but why can't I read my own usernames & passwords on logins when I type them--or read them on the program auto login when I enter so I can remember them?

Somebody watching over my shoulder? Why should my computer care if I am an imbecile? I'm perfectly capable of making sure no one is watching in whatever environment I'm in. If I make bad decisions, then that's on me. Frankly, I seldom have anyone in my home who might be watching my logins. And if I should have someone in my home office and they want to steal my login info on my subscription to the NYT or to NBA. com, big deal. Most of my logins have nothing to do with any serious websites where I might use a little more care--but that still should be my decision, not the damn computer's.

And finally, If even I can't see what I'm typing, then I can't get into whatever program I'm trying to open if I make a typo, eh?

A:eazy vcd program cant read my dvd..??

Try reading a disc that you have already successfully read on the other computer, there is something about CSS that the one you are trying to read now might have and that the others didn't.

For more info you can goto PCMAG's site. It is under Solutions; Software; Copy DVDs.

Content Scrambling System. The program that deals with it is DVD-X-Copy, and another that can read from them is dvddecrypter @; it is freeware. Hope some of this helps....

BTW: Is the ASPI the latest version? Is the Software the Same version on both PCs (Not windows updates, but the DVD Copying SW)? There have been legal battles about the CSS decryption being used in software, DVD X-Copy is I think the only one still using it and still fighting for our right to make legit back-up copies of DVDs we buy.

Could also be the DVD-ROMs or DVD-R/RW that you are using, as a good quality one will deal with errors better and a poor quality one won't..... Learned that from game back-ups...

Ok I just went to modify a text file in 'Program Files' and realized that its read only..

This is something that just 'turned on' within the last couple of days, as I have modified files there quite often in the past without having to get around the 'read only' BS.

Ive found the easiest way atm to get around that is to copy>paste the file to another folder outside program files, edit, and copy back over, but that can get quite annoying when I have to do little 'micro edits'

The actual program files folder is write protected like so:

Gyazo - 4420eaadbf896f6fc57c2c1977d247a1.png

I've tried turning off write protection for the files in question, and then the folder containing the files, but niether option worked, so I was gonna turn off write protection for the entire program files folder, then realized that will take a good half hr to process. (yea my computer is slow)

So will that actually turn off write protection for everything?

And while im here.. Why did it suddenly turn on write protection??? I have not turned it on, nor have I created any user profiles on windows (I'm admin, only user)

I was reading on this for windows 8, which seems to be a huge PITA, but I havn't found much relating to this issue on windows 7...

btw this is on windows 7 ultimate, 64 bit.

thanks. Hopefully it can be turned off. I hate being restricted on my own PC.

for exemple if there is 4000 entries or cards... that have an information regarding schedule and time of operation and non operation... the database will be able to sort or signal the entries that are suposed to be ON at 3 pm, 30 mns before, for exemple in function of there field of activity or location or any other details.

Just mainly the database should be able to run automaticaly with the clock and sort differently in function of the present time or another detail.

I was wondering with newer SSD's if it is correct or not that programs can read the temperature of an SSD.

Like you can with a HDD.

I am using a program called AIDA64 notice at times my two internal SSD's read 44c.

Two i have are:
Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive
Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive

Most say they do not get too hot or not really hot at all, due to no moving parts and less power consumed.
Never remember my HDD reaching past 37-38c

2.5" to 3.5" bracket i have fits 2 SSD's and makes them sit close to each other, one above the other in a 3.5" bay.
Pretty open around it, i have two case fans, nothing else it getting too hot, but it is summer time here and i do notice a difference compared to winter with rest of the components.

A:Can software read temps on SSD

They have a sensor built-in like HDDs that software can read. Speccy reads my Adata SSD. Always seems cooler than my hard drive, does warm up a tad if doing some intense read/writes. As long as S.M.A.R.T. reports it is within tolerance then shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Hi, can anyone link me to some software that will read my GPU's temp as i'm gonna overclock it and need to know when enough is enough, lol.


A:Software to read my GPU's temp????

if you're overclocking your GPU you're best to see when it starts causing screen artifacts not by how hot it is. Motherboard Monitor might be able to read the GPU temp if it has a sensor but it really depends on whether the plugin has been coded & whether your GPU has a sensor on it.
Also it would help to specifiy which card you have or even if its a Radeon or GeForce based card.
I use ATiTool for overclocking my Radeon. It is very easy to use & has some very good features (like Find Max Core & Max RAM speeds) and it has a built in Artifact Tester.

This program, Tortoise SVN, worked like a charm before I decided to install the latest version. When I had installed it though, I noticed it wasn't in the context menu for windows explorer when you right-click, or whatever you call it (this is the place you're supposed to use it from). So I tried to repair it. Well, it turns out the folder and everything in it is read-only. I tried turning this off, but they wouldn't have any of those shenanigans. I tried to make sure that every file was "owned" by me (I'm the only user of this computer), that I had administrator priviliges and stuff like that, but seemingly to no avail. I tried turning on the administrator account or whatever you call it, so that when you log off there is an account that you can log in to which is simply called "administrator" and where you hopefully can do stuff like that, but the files in those folders were still not impressed by my priviliges.

I tried using CMD for Subversion (SVN), but that doesn't work now either (I'm pretty sure it worked before I installed Tortoise SVN again). It recognizes the command ("svn"), but it simply says something to the effect of "acces denied" or "no access". Maybe Subversion itself is also embeded in Tortoise SVN? I do have another Subversion program installed, simply called Subversion. This doesn't seem to have the paranoid read-only troubles, so maybe I could set the environment variables for CMD or whichever to point... Read more

A:DVD will not read DVDs or DVD software but will play CDs

Do you have a Windows Vista or 7 install disk? Or even a restore disk if its a branded PC. All of those should be DVDs, so see if you can boot the computer from that disk (you won't actually go through any of the install process, just see if it boots from the disk). This will ensure that your dvd laser didn't die. The laser for cd and dvd reading are different, so it is possible that one could die while the other is still good.

You may be exactly right with it being a registry thing, but if you have a bootable disk that is a dvd we can easily rule out a hardware issue.

Hello and thank you beforehand.

The story goes like this: once I had to submit a school project and required VMware to emulate Linux (since I was given a Toshiba laptop with the condition of not messing up with it beyond installing programs), and first VMware DID NOT work at all, and then the CD/DVD drive stopped working. I know it has to be VMware because I installed it in a desktop PC and the same thing happened, that, until I uninstalled the damn thing (which turned out as such a blessed remedy!). When I tried to uninstall in the Toshiba laptop it won't allow me to do so. I even entered into safe mode, but as you may know, Vista does not allow permission to use the uninstaller... in safe mode.

I've been trying everything, but I can't mess around in the system since it's not mine. By the way, if this helps as a hint: every time I get a disk into the drive, nothing happens until I reboot, kind of like it only reads BEFORE Windows is fully running.

I've had this read-only problem before but this is different.

Usually turning off the UAC does the trick

This time I added Phtoshop Lightroom to my system. For a couple days everything was working fine.

For some reason today when I went to use it an error screen appeared saying it couldn't use catalogs that were in folders that are read-only.

Since then I've tried everything under the sun to get them to not be read only but nothing works.

The frustrating thing is that people keep saying that it doesn't matter that the folder is read-only because the files are not read only. This is true but as long as Lightroom thinks it is it won't load.

What do I do? Why would this happen suddenly? Do I change the folders? If it's a problem with LR how do I get around it. It just won't load without a catalog, and all of my folders are the same (read only).

Thanks in advance.

For some reason, my cd/dvd player has stopped working. Now my dvd player had always been finicky about which things it liked it play--after several years i found the need to reinstall windows, and then i installed the latest firmware from sony style, and, presto, everything worked fine.

i was able to install adobe creative suite no problem. that was a few months ago. in the meantime, i can tell you that i had a nasty hacktool.rootkit infection--which i seem to have gotten rid of. although i still have some issues (such as my symantec antivirus is running but wont show up in the taskbar, and i don't always get the required pop-ups when putting cds or usb drives in). i've also recently installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled iTunes.

so since i noticed yesterday that out of nowhere my cd/dvd drive wasn't working what so ever, i checked the device manager. no problems. i then uninstalled the hardware, and scanned for hardware changes. that led me to the yellow exclamation point on my cd/dvd drive, and this message:

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

Hi, have an almost ridiculous problem involving all my storage discs, internal and external. Found a suspicious Permission on one of the drives that started with an S and included a long string of numbers and other letters. (Sorry, I didn't write it down.) So deleted that permission and scanned the drives with both Avast and Malwarebytes. Avast found three "threats" on the drive first infected and I deleted these. Not everything works fine.....I can write, delete with no problem. Even SyncToy will write and delete with no problem. But all of my storage media, both internal and external list their properties as Read Only. When I open my desktop 3tb WD hard drive I get a message "No writable paritition found" even though I can write and delete whatever I wish.

I've tried everything, including the Chkdsk procedure (all the drives are listed as read/write and the delete write protect doesn't help), and changing the Registry StorageDevicePolicies key WriteProtect to 0. Nothing has changed the Read Only designation of the storage media. The permissions are all good. Further virus/malware scans have turned up no further defects.

I use Win 7 64bit on a Dell XPS 8700 with a Samsung 128gb SSD and 24gb of RAM.

Any suggestions for reliable software that find and delete malware/viruses that cause Write Protect for storage volumes? Please?

Hello everybody,

I have a problem with the C:\Programs Files and C:\Program Files (x86) folders under W7 RC 64bit:
these folder have the read-only attribute set on and I can't unset it.

Whenever I tried to unset this attribuite even if W7 seems to comply the folders actually remain in the read-only mode.

Is there a way to unset this attribute?
I need to do that at least for a subfolder, since this contains a program which modifies files every time you open it.


A:How do I unset the Program folder read-only attribute?

I think this is s security setting and cant be changed.
I would give the program that keeps changing things Admin rights when it runs inside of the compatibility tab and see if that works before removing the read-only attribute in the Program folder.

Hi, Hope someone can help. I've spent about 3 hours (and a hundred bucks) on the phone with HP support, with no solution.

I have an HP Pavilion laptop, running Vista 32 bit, SP2. My optical drive, a DVD/CD read/write device, has worked fine for the past couple of years. Tonight, for the first time in a couple months, I attempted to watch a DVD. The DVD would not "load"--that is, when I put it in the drive, the drive's light flashed, and I could hear it spin--but nothing happened. The auto run window did not pop up. I then tried an audio CD--with the same results. I then tried a program disc (a card game)--and while it appeared a bit slow, it loaded and installed the software just fine.

Device manager says that everything is ok with the drive. (See attached screen shot). I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver--to no avail. Vista says there is no updated driver available, and I can't find one on the HP web site.

Searching the web, I found several posts relative to deleting the upper and lower filters in the registry. I did this (and unfortunately screwed up the registry back-up)--it did not resolve the problem, but broke my iTunes program. (It complains that these settings are missing). I ran the Microsoft "Fix It" tool found at:

It said it found problems, but could not fix them.

A:Optical drive won't read CD or DVD, but is OK with program discs


It was, believe it or not, just cleaning the lens on the drive. After just about giving up, I thought, as a last ditch try, to very gently swab the lens with a swab dipped in alcohol. That worked like a charm.

I don't understand why the software disc(s) read ok, but not the CD or DVD. If anyone has thoughts, I'd like to understand it.

So i've just changed my cpu cooler and thermal paste from the ocz tempest to the zalman cnps 9500 nt with some nice smoooooth as5. Before my readings in Nvidia's "ntune" were 51/52c were all i got out of it, i tried "Everest" it reported the same, i then checked the readings in bios, this revealed my cpu was actually running at a much more believable 31c. I failed to realise it could have been a software problem.

Now that i've changed my cpu cooler, the software still reports the same 51/52c reading but the bios reports a more nicer figure of 25c...what's going on? is it a software problem? if it is what can i do about it? how come the bios reads a more believable figure? thank you for any help provided.

A:software failing to read cpu temps correctly

Sounds like the software to me. One logical explanation is that while your OS is loaded and lots of processes are running, your processor would probably be doing a lot more than it does while in the BIOS (when no OS is loaded). However, twice the temp is definately a big difference!

Hey folks,

So many devices these days come with a driver on a mini-CD. My laptops (Acer and Toshiba) take forever to access them, then think they're blank and ask to format them.

In Googling this I found a guy who said he fixed this problem by reinstalling Roxio. Said his computer came with it but he'd uninstalled it cause he never used it. That it must "turn on" a feature in W7 or something, cause after he reinstalled it, his computer could read mini's.

When I got both my laptops I wiped all partitions (including the hidden "recovery" one), re-partitioned the way I wanted, and reloaded all drivers and W7 (64 Ultimate). The DVD players in both laptops have a central spindle, so they are designed to read mini-CDs. They DO detect them, but again, think they are blank.

Anyone heard of Roxio or other software being required to read mini's? Thanks much.

PS I have a lot of media software installed but not Roxio. (Nero, ImageBurn, Handbrake, Ashampoo, etc.)

A:Is Media Software Required to Read Mini-CDs?

Windows should be able to read your mini-CDs . You might want to eject the CD and place it in the middle . It will take a few seconds to read the disc due to it size. I never had an issue with mini-CDs being read.

installing a reputable software app failed and now my c drive is read only and although i can use most of my original programs, i cannot change anything, cannot choose a restore point as it say the administrator (me!) has stopped me doing this.

I cannot start my acronis to get my latest backup (on external drive), yet i can access my email and other programs.

The windows system is actually on a small ssd drive for speed although my C drive is on my normal harddisk.

i get the fault code 0x800704b3 when trying to access programs such as Wise 365.

My Hyper drive manager will not work either

I can copy and paste and am copying all of the files in My Documents to an external hard drive (where all my Acronis backups are.

I have a sinking feeling that the only option left to me is a complete reinstall somehow as all the options seem to be blocked to me (Restore, Refresh etc)

Getting C unlocked would be a bonus.

I know it's a long shot, but if anyone can help i would be grateful.

Thanks in advance


A:C drive read only after software install fails

Ok lets give this a shot...

disconnect from the internet

disconnect the external harddrive

uninstall the software that started the problem

if you are unable then reboot and start the computer in safe mode then uninstall that program

restart the computer with internet and external harddisk disconnected

do you have access to your system now?

Create a restore point

reconnect to the internet

reconnect the harddrive if you wish

Check operation of your system, make sure everything is ok now..

If you want to try to re-install that software, go ahead.

Hi. I'm trying to clean up my little brother's computer. He has a fairly new Windows 2000 computer. The problem is that he has gotten spyware so many times, and has installed shareware from the internet so many times... that he now has strange error messages popping up at system startup and shutdown.

I ran the standard disk check / defrag / virus check and cleaned up all that crap. But still these things happen:
At startup:
1) An error message says "Error: Program execution failed."
2) The recycle bin opens (???? I know eh)
At shutdown:
3) Some unknown program freezes and I have to click "End Program"
4) There is a file "sbw9xup.exe" on the desktop that refuses to be deleted or moved... it says "There has been a sharing violation." so its stuck there.

I have attached my HiJackThis scan below. Can somebody PLEASE PLEASE look at this and tell me what might be the problem(s)? Also I don't know how to get a list of the startup programs in Win2000... I used to just go to msconfig.exe but there seems to be no such thing in Win2000.

I have a uses about .5 MB when resident but not doing much. When it actually starts processing it reads somewhere between 50 and 70 files (depending on what it's going to do) and grows to about 4 GB. This period of reading files takes about 25 seconds on Win7 and about 5 minutes on Win10. The Win7 box is a bit more powerful - i7 4771 @ 3.50GHz vs. i7 930 @ 2.80GHz. Both read from SSDs, but the Win7 box SSD is has a SATA-III connection while the Win10 box SSD has a SATA-II connection. Process Explorer shows long periods when the application is not reading anything but shows a nearly constant 12KB/sec "Other" I/O activity. The Win10 system shows nearly constant reads (like around 50 MB/sec, but it varies a lot). I have tried using Resource Monitor but it seems to show I/O activity averaged or accumulated over a 60 second window. I can tell what files have been opened, but not which currently have activity. Somebody on suggested it might be paging activity that is delaying the program, but I have 12GB ram (vs. 16GB on the Win7 box). I don't think that is the problem. Can anybody suggest what I should look at to diagnose this? I really don't want to upgrade my current Win7 system until I understand what is going on.

I have a CD-RW that is formatted for the InCD program that is bundled w/ Nero... it formats the CD-RW so I can add, move, and delete just like a floppy disc. I was mvoing some files off my HD onto the CD-RW -- it moved the 1st file and most of the 2nd file. Then it stopped and said it couldn't find the correct path for the 2nd file. It looked like the file had already copied to the CD, but it was also still on the HD. So I assumed it had a problem deleting the file on the HD after it was moved.

When I tried to access the files on the CD-RW to make sure they were both there, the computer crashed. I rebooted, and now it won't read any of the files that are on the CD-RW It appears to be a blank CD. When I try to open it thru InCD, all it does is ask me if I want to format the blank CD. So my guess is that the program isn't reading the header on the CD becuz the header was corrupted when InCD was trying to re-write it after adding the 2 additional files.

So how do I gain access to files that are on the CD-RW? I had a lot of stuff on there I don't want to lose... I'm sure it's all still there, it's just a matter of getting the program to recognize that the files are there.

A:InCD packet-writing software from Nero won't read CD

ISOBuster may give some access to the CD, but this is one reason why you should never use packet writing unless the data is of no consequence.

It is the most unreliable form of data storage, one for which the CD was not originally designed. A CD-RW means ReWritable (erase and re-use) not Read-Write. They are OK in that latter mode generally.

I suspect you are quite right in your diagnosis that the TOC is corrupt, which means there is now just a heap binary data on the CD with no easy way of determining the start and end of each individual file.

Hey, I'm looking for a software that does what the task manager in Windows 8 and 10 does for monitoring disk activity which is basically just to break down disk read\write or i\o usage down by the individual hard drives.

I spent a while searching for such a software on google and downloaded and installed over 10 applications including Microsoft's Sysinternals Suite, Crystal disk info, IOmeter, OpenHardwareMonitor, Process Explorer, and several more, and none of them seem to have this function. I was surprised that I wasn't able to find any such function over many google searches but it's possible I was just using poor search terms.

Does anyone know such a software\program\utility that will monitor my disk read\write usage and break it down per drive so I can monitor it during backups, transfers and other disk operations?

I am wondering if there is any software which will process scanned, hand written documents into typed text.

A:Looking for a software program...

Not for the PC, handwriting is so varied, a database for it would be huge!
I would imagine the postal service would have some form of OCR for postcode or zip code handling but this doesn't help you much!

presently I am not on my own computer so I haven't run TSG Sys Info and included info of my system. I will do so if needed including my printer.
My inquiry is about having a photocopied sheet (from previous work from an older computer which died) which I can scan on my printer, I then want to transfer that info (lots of typing and some sheets have info in table format) onto my present computer and be able to edit or change the layout if necessary. There are lots of sheets so it would be too time consuming to retype. Is there a suitable program I can install to do this? I once heard of OCR but not sure if this best or if there is something better or newer on the market that I can use?
Thanks in advance for your input.

I cant get help from this forum because I cannot even download any fixes (heck I can't even get to this forum using my son's infected computer - right now I'm using my daughters computer.

Infected computer is a Dell desktop - tried using ctrl F11 to reach recovery partition. Did not work. Probably since I had already re-partitioned after another nasty infection. I'm just not computer savvy enough to even try (nor undestand) how to use dsr fix. I see it I have only a few more options left.

I do have the reinstallation disk - could go that route, but again, I'm not sure I will do it correctly - or - Is there a decent software program out there I could purchase that would clean this mess up (suspect it is malware since I am getting re-directed and cannot run security programs (heck can't even get to to install megabytes malware - and if by chance I do, it does not run.) Reluctant to even purchase anything since I'm worried that whatever is on his computer won't even let me run any software I might purchase.

I even tried downloading megabyte to a disc (from a clean computer,) but this darn nasty infection would not let me run it that way either.

Any suggestions - I know you are all very busy (as evidenced by how many requests for help you're getting). Thanks for any help you can give.

A:Is there any software (program)I can buy to fix this mess

Problem fixed, I did a complete new re-install of windows XP. downloaded all the usual security programs, including AVG, Spybod S&D, Spyware Blaster, Megabytes Anti-Malware and thoroughly scolded my son. If it happens again, he can kiss his computer goodbye.

Thanks. Everyone here does a super job. I only wish it were'nt so hard to fix things when they get so out of hand

p.s. - I'm pretty sure he may have downloaded something via youtube. so to all of you out there, be careful.

I just got hired by a company and it is an accounting firm. They currently do not have any way of pushing updates out to there users. They make instruction for them and tell them were the exe is located. We all know how that works, people don't do the updates and then are behind 5 or 6 versions. They use WSUS for windows update. I am not familiar with any software distribution packages that are out there. Can someone help me out.

Can anyone recommend a free program uninstall software please. I started to un-install my Sunbelt firewall via "add/remove programs" when after about 2 mins my PC crashed. When I re-started it, I went to "add/remove programs" to continue the un-install and Sunbelt wasn't there. I went to "Control Panel>Security Centre and there was Sunbelt apparently still working. Sometimes the icon appears in the system tray, sometimes it doesn't, but in Security Centre it always tells me it's on. There is no un-install exe in the program folder. So I need un-install software that is known to work. Thanks.

A:Program un-unstall software

Before you try uninstall Sunbelt go to Taskmanager and make sure all Sunbelt services are stopped then try uninstall it. I use Ccleaner to uninstall any software I don't want.

I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction of how to UNBLOCK a program and allow it to run using Win7 Home premium. When I click to start the program I get, "This program is blocked because of compatibility issues". I tried to run it in the three compatibility modes "XP, Vista, Win7", no go. I disabled "Application Experience Service & Program Compaitbility" in services no go. I then enabled these services. Still no go. So, is there a way to unblock a program so it will run?


A:How to unblock a software program????

No way. You tried all you could. Keep that AE service enabled or you will run into errors when deleting files, eventually. They will re-appear.

At least this happened in our beta testing. Unsure how it is now since I never tried disabling since.

What program are you talking about?

I had to buy a new computer that is running Vista Home Premium, 64bit, SP1.

I have a program from back in the Win95/98 days that I would like to continue to use. It is no longer supported by the maker. This program runs fine with XP and Vista 32bit. (I can run it on my laptop), but it is not compatiple with the new Vista 64bit.

Is it possible to run this program with the new operating system?

Thanks, JSawyer1

If it is a 16bit program, then no, it will not run on x64, they removed the 16bit subsystem in Vista x64.

You may be able to run it using DosBox.

I have an Dell Inspiron Computer running XP Home. I do not have a problem with Windows programs but the one program I need most - Business Vision Encore 3.2 has all of a sudden become unresponsive.

I can get into the program - no problem but once in it just hangs and finally a message comes up saying " this program is not responding ".
I do not understand what has happened. This occurred on Dec. 18/11
and I have tried everything I can think of but still no result. Since this is
an older version of the software the manufacturer will not offer any help.

I tried reinstalling the software and then adding the data files but this hasn't changed anything either. I also tried " system restore " but apparently it does not work on my computer . Perhaps if I could correct that problem - it would fix this one . Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Software Program Not Responding

Hi Mistyblue22,

Try un-installing the software again and this time, also delete the registry keys that deal with the software in the registry. When you do this, make sure to make a backup of your computer registry. Then, try re-installing the Business Vision Encore 3.2 software again and see if it will work for you. How much would it cost for a software upgrade, if you don't mind me asking?

Where can I download a software program that can check to see if I have any bad sectors (I'm not sure of terminology) in my RAM? I'm having a problem with a Dell 8300 where it just shuts down during operation. Screen turns blue and I get a message that says "drivers not equal" and some other crap. Sometimes happens several times a day - sometimes not for several days. Seems to only happen when I am active on the Internet either with Windows Explorer or Jukebox. Dell says its probably something I loaded causing it but I have reverted several times to my configuration the day i bought it. A tech friend told me this is a common problem with Dells and to look for a software program that can detect if I have a RAM memory problem. Help please....

Does anyone know how one might go about doing this? Instead of installing the program to the hdd from the disk, install it so that it would run from a cd? I was just wondering if this was possible. Thanx


A:Ok, how to install a software program to cd?

I think the only way is to go to your HDD first,,I always click save instead of run from the current location and I save it to my desktop,,Then when I get ready to put stuff on a cd I copy the program from there.

Hope this helps

A:Question on a software program

A popular one in this forum seems to be the free Ccleaner:

You can go through and set all the options. The one recommendation I have is that you uncheck the cleaning of Windows log files. It seems to delete install.log files and prevents some programs from being uninstalled.

There are plenty of these things, so I wouldn't spend any money on them.

I can capture vhs tapes and make a mpg file on my hard disk. Once it is a mpg file, I can import in into Pinnacle Studio 10.8. I have on my motherboard firewire input/output capability but even though it sees my Panasonic dvr, I get the yellow "i" and it it is looking for a driver which Panasonic doesn't supply. I prefer using my external dvr recorder not my internal dvd writer because on this Panasonic DMR-ES25, I have the ability of getting almost dcvd quality in 4 hr. mode and I would like to combine many vhs tapes to make 8 gb files before burning.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Just leave a reply if you would like something made.
