  1. Well, he actually has a point: Many are out there actually having the extension ?.divx?. I seem to remember they recommended that a few years ago, and I actually also used it, for a while. (Before switching to .mkv containers.) Adding it might be no harm. Still it seems the zombies have gotten his Shift key, hee hee.
  2. Cheers for taking the time and effort to always keep us up-to-date, Winapp2.ini! Happy holidays everyone!
  3. Hee, hee. Indeed! Thanks for sharing your solution here for others to find!
  4. Maybe you could lend a spare drive from a friend (or another computer) to verify if the drive is defective? Sounds a bit like it. I also lately had an LG drive that suddenly wouldn?t burn CDs anymore (behaved normally, seemed to ?write? to the blank CD, gave error upon the following verify, using ImgBurn). It was actually the drive and I had to replace it. Another idea: Do you have DaemonTools or the like installed? I experienced problems with (older versions of the) the SPTD driver (SCSI-Pass-Thru-Driver) they install on some machines.

    Good question, no good answer. Because one cannot know what might have messed it up. Maybe the devs can help. In the meantime, if you are a little computer-savvy, you might want to try checking the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Wbem\Scripting key in your registry, using a tool like RegEdit. It usually (on WinXP) contains something like: (Standard) REG_SZ (no value) Default Impersonation Level REG_DWORD 0x00000003 (3) Default Namespace REG_SZ root\cimv2 These are the name, type, and value of the registry entries given. If your registry contains something else, let us know. If the k

    Looks like the namespace for a Windows Management Instrumentation call isn?t found (or corrupt). Accidentally modified/deleted HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Wbem\Scripting? (The default namespace is usually ?root\cimv2?.) Was something about ?SWbemLocator? mentioned in the error message you got? (Apparently Speccy tried to read out some information from the system using WMI, Microsoft?s implementation of the WBEM/CMI standard, which failed. WMI is used to as a more compatible means for (hardware) drivers to supply the OS (and applications like Speccy) with information about the hardware,
  7. Odd. Maybe Vista? FYI: Windows? Recycle Bin is physically kept on a ?per drive?-basis, while the desktop icon shows them ?all together?. On older FAT file systems, the folders were called RECYCLED (or Recycled), on NTFS file systems (NT, 2k, XP) RECYCLER. With the advent of Vista, MS decided to rename it yet again, to $RECYCLE.BIN (the internal format has also changed then). Same is still valid for Windows 7.
  8. Just a side remark (maybe off-topic ? if so, sorry!): You did try cleaning the SD cards connectors and/or did try another reader? I?ve had a similar problem once; fortunately, everything worked again after blowing out the camera?s card slot and cleaning the card?s contacts (carefully!). Phew. Just sometimes it?s only the contacts, or a defective card reader. If you?re lucky. To easily determine if your camera or card reader is broken, you can test with another (empty) card: Format it in the camera, take some dummy shots, and try reading those into your PC. If this fails, try swapping t
  9. ? or maybe you used Windows 7 just once on the drive(s) in question. I noticed the additional (hidden) $RECYCLE.BIN appearing on my portable USB drive after using it with Windows 7 for the first time. Now I have two Recycle Bins on it: RECYCLER (used by Windows XP) and $RECYCLE.BIN (used by Windows 7). I decided to just leave them as they are, because they?re empty anyway. I?m a notorious ?Empty Recycle Bin? fanboy, and always empty the Recycle Bin before removing the portable drive. The stored information would be of no use on another system anyway.
  10. Seems to work okay here (WinXP+SP3 German, avast! 5, Speccy 1.07.205 Portable): Operating System MS Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3 Installation Date: 18 October 2010, 17:20 Serial Number: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX Windows Security Center Firewall Enabled Antivirus Antivirus Enabled Company Name AVAST Software Display Name avast!

  11. Just because I cannot readily find the info under "Recuva Features": Will Recuva work reliably when trying to recover accidentally deleted digital camera image files on an exFAT-formatted CompactFlash card? I.e., does it fully support exFAT? I would be using Recuva v1.38.0.504 under Windows XP+SP3, KB955704 installed. I?m asking this for a friend who is photographer and deleted some important images. Fortunately, he switched the camera off after recognizing his error, and immediately removed the card. We?re assuming exFAT, because the card is 64 GB and his card reader could read it
  12. Hazelnut: No, I understand your point of view. I?d probably also be a little suspicious when a forum newbie came up with downloadable stuff in one of his first posts. Then again, I always somehow assume that everyone knows that I?m working with EDP (what nowadays is IT) since 1976 ? I was just assuming that someone (a mod) would have a quick peek over it, see it?s okay, and leave it. The main reasons for the ZIP were not to have a "clickable" (and thus executable) VBScript on the page, be sure that everyone could copy it over unmodified (copying from forum posts can be quite erroneous
  13. Andavari: Good point. About in the Eighties, I swore never to touch BASIC again and, frankly, don?t like Microsoft?s BASIC variants at all, so I tend to forget about these things. So if CCleaner somehow executes wscript.exe (or whatever equivalent function) when encountering "ScriptKeyX" (instead of just hoping some kind of shell will do the job), Howard could still reach his goal this way. A little clumsy, perhaps, but possibly working. One might have to try this out.
  14. Cheers for the answer, Winapp2.ini! Up to (and including) Vista, the above should be sufficient and give usable results. The same holds for Win7 (as far as CSIDL goes), but from a programming point of view, I?d use an OS version check, and if we?re on Vista (or above), use KNOWNFOLDERIDs in addition, to get all the extra ones not (yet) addressed by my stuff, like, for instance LocalAppDataLow PhotoAlbums Ringtones PublicRingtones Games GameTasks RecordedTV RecordedTVLibrary SavedGames SavedSearches Just to mention a few right from the memory ?
