  1. One of the challenges in this scenario is that you might need the drive letter to always be "G:\", but if you could permanently assign that drive letter to the USB drive and then insert it into another host computer that already has a "G:\ drive, then your USB drive would not be recognized. Windows XP does not support relative paths. I'm not sure what the ultimate goal for the drive letter needing to fixed (static) is, but you might want to check out the portability features of XYplorer. The Standard License is $30, the Lifetime is $60, and you are allowed to install it on as many devices
  2. Ouch, I see what happened. It sounds like not only is PP6.5 not compatible with Vista, but neither is its uninstaller. I recommend that the first thing you try is if you have System Restore enabled in Vista, I would try going back to a previous restore point. Otherwise, it could be very time consuming to research and crawl through every registry entry and directory that the PP6.5 installation tried to write to. I have used Revo Uninstaller (freeware) to uninstall stubborn applications in the past. I did have one program that could never completely get removed and I ended up doing a reb
  3. Even for programs that are not free, you would most likely be disappointed with the results. With the conversion back to PowerPoint, the slide is treated like an image, so modifying the text and the sort is really not there. Recreating the slide manually is the least expensive, and the most flexible way to work with the slide content.
  4. Good question; and well, no; the varying versions of MS Office Suites I use are not all on the same machine. I have 6 physical machines, and around 3-dozen virtual machines. Some type of Office application is installed on about 95% of them, but they are different versions for the most part. The machine that I use the most has Office 2007 and OpenOffice installed. I switch back and forth between the two office suites when I need to do something and (1) I want to see if a particular routine is available or (2) how simple it is.
  5. I usually don't explicitly share my "C:\" drive, as it is already defaulted to be a hidden share. Using the "Run" command on a remote computer, you can enter "\\ComputerName\C$" (the dollar sign means it's hidden) and you should be able to access it whether you explicitly share the "C:\" drive or not. You just need to enter the login for a computer account that has permissions to that drive. By default, all of the files and folders on "C:\" inherit the permissions of the root share (in this case, the "C:\" drive), including "My Documents". The default workgroup name for Windows XP Professi
  6. I think it all comes down to preference. I actually use Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2003, Office 2007, and OpenOffice 2.4.1. Out of all these, I personally like Office 2007 the most. The Building Blocks feature in Office 2007 save me loads of time so that I don't have to keep entering repetitive information, and I also like that I can hover over font setting and preview the what the document will look like before applying the change. The "ribbon" was easy for me to get used to, and it made it easier to find features that were always in earlier versions of Office but they were hard to fi
  7. I'm guessing that the source of the PDF file that needs to be adjusted did not originate from a word processor file that was converted to PDF, but rather it was a scanned document saved as a PDF. My experience with PDF files is that brightness and contrast are actually not PDF attributes in the same way that say bookmarks and encryption are, but rather are more image file attributes, such as JPG and TIF. Most scanned PDF documents are an image file (TIF) surrounded by a PDF wrapper, and that's what makes this operation challenging. The PDF would need to be converted to an image file, and t
  8. When I was in Jr. High School, all of us in computer class learned how to use computers on the Macintosh Classic. 8 MHz Processor 1MB RAM 40MB HDD I swore back then that everyone in my generation would buy an Apple. I couldn?t have been more wrong. Dare I say...? We have evolved into a Windows world, and you really have to consider that there are all types of people from all walks of life that use computers. For example: IT supporting thousands of domain users concerned about information security (BitLocker Drive Encryption, Hundreds of new Local Secuirty Policy and Group Secuirt
  9. Hmmm, I've installed CCleaner hundreds of times on multiple machines and I have never run into anything like that. Forgive me if you have already looked into this, I can't help but wonder the following: Are there other applications besides the command-line that are also running slow? Is anti-virus software installed and is it possibly doing a scan? Is a hard disk being defragmented? Is CCleaner processing while you are using the command-line? I would check to see which Windows applications, processes, and services are currently running. Also try booting into Safe Mode so that
  10. Keeping the Windows Firewall is as light as is gets. A firewall really does nothing more than block TCP/UDP port traffic to and from the host, and that's exactly what the Windows Firewall does. Using a hardware router's integrated firewall provides a zero-footprint on your PC, so I agree completely 1984. Online-Armour is a firewall indeed, but it has other things that really are more in the anti-virus /anti-spyware space. I personally use Windows Live OneCare on my home PCs. In terms of the firewall, it adds a little more firewall user functionality, such as easier firewall setup for t

    I couldn't agree more that CCleaner is the best! There is beauty in simplicity. I have used Defraggler for over a month now, and I have to say that the single biggest benefit to using it is defragmentation speed. Defraggler's defragmentation occurs with just the fragmented files or selected files. Now, I like and use the Windows Defragmentation tool as well, but with that we're talking about the entire drive. Hooray for Defragler!
  12. OK, the best game that has ever been written (in my humble opinion) is Gran Turismo for the Sony PlayStation. I am not a gamer, but this game is addictive! I spent many nights and weekends with my PS2, Gran Turismo 1, 2, 3, & 4, bags of salted-snacks, cases of canned cola, you get the drift. So, ever since I completed GT4 a few years ago, I have been waiting with anticipation for the next GT installment. Early buzz about GT5 revealed that I would eventually need to get a PS3. "No problem", I tell myself, "This game is awesome!" Then the PS3 units were launched in 2006 for $60
  13. With Windows Vista, being logged in as a Local Administrator does not mean that the system is constatly being run with eleveted priviledges. As a time/click saver, one thing I did when I installed CCleaner on Windows Vista is: Right-Click on the CCleaner shortcut on the desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Compatability Tab. Check Run this program as an administrator. Click OK. When CCleaner is launched and UAC is displayed, click Continue and the priviledges to run CCleaner will be elevated.

    I say there is no need at all to be concerned about System Volume Information not defragmenting. System Restore data is stored here and is constantly being written to. One could go mad and insane trying to keep it defragmented because as soon as defragmenting is complete, it can become fragmented almost instantly. System Volume Information can absolutely make this folder heavy, especially if your system has been in use for some time. Advanced Windows users concerned about disk space could manually delete Restore Points or turn off System Restore.
