  1. Re-apply new thermal compound! Search YouTube on how to do it.
  2. Hmm, let's make a Paraprosdokian out of this for the fun of it:
  3. Yes it's easy to make on your own if you already have a portable version to copy from. But they might consider posting that info as an illegal means of doing it or some form of circumvention. At least that's what I've been told previously by another moderator when I posted those instructions and promptly deleted the post I made. The moderation team was told years ago that they'd phase out the portable versions, maybe they're doing that now, but I've no ideal and can't speculate because they haven't told the moderation team anything either.
  4. Sometimes with Win10 restarting the computer will cause it to refresh the icons.
  5. YouTube in the original Edge browser for Win10 was usually the only smooth experience for low-end hardware like entry-level budget laptops since there were fewer issues like dropped frames, even Chrome wasn't as good for it. Don't know what low-end hardware will use with Edge Chromium taking over as the main Win10 browser. Firefox on YouTube has never been a smooth experience for me even on good hardware, it's always had some slow loading lag (supposedly induced on purpose by Google/YouTube if we are to believe reports), whereas in my preferred SRWare Iron (based on Chromium) it's a compl
  6. PicPick Portable URL: https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/picpick-portable License: Freeware (Personal use) / Paid (Business use) Supports: Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 ---------------------------------------------- Edit - some annoyances it has: * It can be tricky to get sized correctly with its awkward GUI design. * It stays running resident in the task bar when you think you've exited out of it, so you have to manually close it using the task bar icon (near the clock). * When manually closing it in the task bar it will sometimes cause it to throw
  7. Rant: The change log states they made some GUI corrections but it still isn't usable for me at all because in order for the GUI to be visible and fully on screen I have to scale the display too small and the font is so small it's too difficult to see. Looks like I won't ever get past v2.2.1. I don't know why they're having such issues making a proper GUI (hell even v3.x had GUI issues with messed up scaling on Win10) that can be re-sized, and with a scrollbar to see what would normally run off-screen -- same goes for Samsung Magician v6 (which I've uninstalled) and a host of other progr
  8. That doesn't always work and can open a can of worms. Case in point I did exactly that on a hard disk and the performance of it afterwards was horrible and nearly unusable. The only solution I had was to use the old discontinued free JkDefrag I had archived locally and play around with the command line to have it sort with "-a 7" which restored the performance on the disk.
  9. Removing duplicate program files and/or system files (.dll, .exe, ocx) is asking for nothing but issues, i.e.; breaking the program resulting into having to repair/reinstall. As you elude to some of the names are different, therefore they aren't really dup's then regardless even if they have a matching MD5/SHA-1/SHA-256 hash. From the screenshots: * As for removing dup's in an antivirus that would never be a recommendation, ever! Although most AV's have tamper protection. * Improperly cleaning Microsoft Office clutter with cleaning tools can/may/will break it! Deleting its program fil
  10. If it's a bought raid NAS setup that came with it's own "OS" or software one would think it would have the necessary defrag tool built in to it (if that's even a thing they bother with) to do it on a schedule or even automatically. Unless of course you're using a homebrewed setup. One thing is for certain Defraggler is slow, but any defrag tool is going to seemingly take an eternity attempting to fully optimize such a massive amount, I'd personally be very apprehensive attempting to fully optimize a drive with over 1TB of data let alone up to possibly 29TB. Plus as long as it would take I
  11. These are the only two "delay" items in my portable version (I don't use any delays so they're set to zero - all configured via the GUI however): DelayRB=0 DelayTemp=0 DelayTemp is obvious, I'm thinking DelayRB is for backing up what the registry cleaner removes but I'm not sure.
  12. It's stressing the hard disk, and that's one reason alone to not use it all that often.
  13. When I received my new M.2 SSD on Jan 2 along with an external M.2 enclosure that was defective I had to do a clean install of Win10 on the new SSD (then later restore from my disk image backup), the option was in there using the latest ISO for an offline account. Edit: And I was online!
  14. Guess Microsoft really wants them to "upgrade" to Win10 by not letting them shutdown or restart. Pulling the plug Nukecad could have other consequences though. Strange bug nonetheless.
  15. See here if any of this helps (it's for Windows but hopefully it's the same for Mac users) - i.e.; it's two posts one by Sandra CCleaner and Dave CCleaner: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/56722-ccleaner-registration/?do=findComment&comment=314922
  16. All the more reason to not have a Microsoft account to use your damned computer. Wonder if one day it will be mandatory since they do have it in our faces allot with "login to your Microsoft account" when doing mundane s**t, in that case they could loose users in droves.
  17. I wonder if Microsoft is perhaps using any "push" updates, i.e.; they fix it without the user having to download anything, and it isn't shown in Automatic Updates. I know some antivirus vendors have used that in the past.
  18. If you changed Windows 10 default behavior (default is to have System Restore/System Protection turned off) and either turned on/enabled System Protection or even if you manually and regularly make a Restore Point on your own that's another avenue to undo the damage since Restore Points can also restore the registry undoing damage. Since you're on Windows 10 it's recommended that you completely abandon cleaning the registry. Microsoft recommends not using registry cleaners, as seen here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-clea
  19. My search box works (the one that's supposed to be Cortana but I turned her off so it's just an old school search). Now what's still broken is for instance go into your Documents folder, now the search in there that they supposedly fixed so we could right click in the search box is still broken after they supposedly fixed it with that optional update seen in Automatic Updates - don't care though since I never right click in search anyways. Scratch that, now it's working today. Gonna need to play around with Linux Mint again and see if I can ditch Windows or not.
  20. Something crashed on your system and created a memory crash dump. Sometimes it can happen if you have outdated drivers, for example outdated graphics drivers.
  21. If using any non-Microsoft disk defrag software that automatically defrags disks that might cause it - if that isn't the issue please ignore this. If your OS drive is an SSD and by looking at your screenshot you're using minimal space why not regularly (daily or weekly) use a disk imaging software that can make smaller incremental backups of only the changes taking place since a full disk image instead of relying upon System Restore which is obviously failing you for whatever reason.
  22. They've been investigating the issue with Microsoft Office for awhile now. Here's a post about it with an official statement acknowledging they are still investigating the issue.
  23. Although I have very little trust in System Restore (I trust verifiable disk images instead) I did enable it last year in Win10 v1803, and now that I'm on v1909 it's still enabled. Win10 has never disabled it from what I see for my C:\ drive and it reports the space it's using which grows slightly daily.
  24. Here's a search for the file name you posted: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06PHQGHUMEAYLNLFDX Possibly created by a program, possibly malware related, who knows. Personally I'd just delete them (or format the flash drive) and do a full virus scan of the whole computer and that flash drive. Edit: Do note that flash drives are susceptible to getting corruption on them, and if that happens weird looking file names can be left behind.
  25. Could make a difference upon how many physical files regardless of filesize exist in the system temp folder (assuming this is C:\Windows\Temp), and especially if on a hard disk drive instead of an SSD, although too many files can even be bothersome for an SSD. A ton of tiny files could take a long time but not hours which is unacceptable. Since you're already looking in that folder if there's a ton of files being created it could be from a program you have installed. I've personally never seen Windows (any version over the last 22 years) cause issues on its own in the system temp folder.
