  1. Have been usingCC for years and never noticed that! I was referring to Applications>Windows>Windows Backup (18 up from the bottom. At least with "enhancer" installed). What does it remove? One of my three imaging applications is W7's. Of course the image is stored on a different drive. Would CC be removing the archive referrence? Thank you!
  2. Is this the "Windows Backup" attribute? If not how do you enable it? If my PC is working perfectly, before I image I run CC then I run Windows Cleanup as Administrator so I can remove all but the last restore point. This would save me from even having to take that step. Thank you!
  3. I'd stumbled upon the thread after the first release when it was considered grossly dangerous. Realizing one must still be cautious, how is it functioning? Thank you!
  4. Although strictly in lay terms, allow me to relate my experience. I updated to the new version earlier this week. I was most curious how effective the dupe cleaner was so I used it. The next day or so the PC experienced BSOD. I built this PC in May and have never had a serious issue. From safe mode I just used W7s System Restore and all was good. I never associated it with the dupe cleaner so I re-installed CC and tried the dupe cleaner again. After lunch today I woke the x64 W7 SP1 PC from Sleep and my 120gb SSD had gone from 87gbs of free space to a few MBs. I now suspected it had something to do with the duplicate cleaner, of course I still don't know for sure. I restored from my weekly Paragon image I made Saturday (I also image with W7s backup which is very good too.) and every thing is back to normal! Also, why doesn't Cyberfox's spell check work here? That is kind of dangerous for me. lol
  5. Thank you for the quick reply and the link hazelnut!
  6. Haven't been able to get on all morning (1:07PM now). Thank you!
  7. I've been using CC for years and yesterday stumbled upon this part of the GUI that I'd never seen before. I googled and came upon this thread (may be more recent) and am more confused. By default, Normal file deletion was checked (good) and by default, Wipe Free Space drives © and Wipe MFT Free Space was checked (not sure good or bad). I've unchecked both the C MFT. The thing is I'm running a SSD so I need to know what I should do. Thank you!
  8. So indeed, under advanced power settings and USB there was a "Selective Suspend" setting that was enabled. I've disabled it and so far so good, although it's hard for me to believe that an active port would be involved. I also read where fans can interfere with the connection. There are three plus the CPU fan. If it occurs again I'll try a M to F USB cable and put the dongle up on the desk, away from the case. If that fails I'll try the same with a powered hub as there like five bucks on ebay. I love this mouse. It's big and it doesn't have a segmented scrolling wheel and that is the reason I bought it for the old XP machine. It is a little harder to middle click admittedly. I still haven't checked the BIOS yet. It did work fine the first several weeks so perhaps it is dying as Andavari suggested!
  9. Nice reply. Especially like the Power Settings! It is 64 bit Windows 7.
  10. I don't see a peripheral categorie so here I am! I've built a desktop with an Asus P8Z77-M Pro mother board, a Core i5 3570K CPU and a SSD. I use an Asus VE 228h LED monitor. After a week or so with the dongle in any given port, the cursor becomes erratic and eventually it will actually freeze. Sometimes a change of ports rectifies it, other times only a reboot. Definitely not the batteries or drivers. Well I guess you can't always say definitely not the drivers. Any theories? Thank you!
  11. At the grand old age of 64 I built a PC (Went pretty flawless actually, although I was scared to death!) with Windows 7. My old XP machine has these really neat arrow cursors I downloaded years ago but I can't find a matching program on that PC. When I search for it on the www there are dozens and dozens and dozens but I can't find the ones I have. They are in the mouse options on the XP PC, is there a way I can find that file and import it to the new PC or does anyone suspect they know which app I'm looking for? Thank you! Found their name: alphablend, may still be around!
  12. No one knows (except Brad, the devepoper) what is going on. Apparently it's getting the feed from The Weather Channel again. As you recall, back in October Brad posted on his site (The story) (Not sure why the WOT flags it red but it is safe!) that TWC was now charging a monthly fee, so with WP being freeware Brad had to stop using them. It is still the best and the most amazingly configurable weather app ever!
  13. My wife wanted a spring theme so this was it but it doesn't show the orange mulch at the base of the tree in the forefront, which actually makes the image look better imo. Upon boot, the taskbar is loaded and the full (and correct) image is visable but as soon as the icons load it ends up like this. I've tried numerous resolutions but nothing works. Thank you for any suggestions! Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  14. Thank you for the reply! I hijacked a thread and asked there and received a reply. The submit a link is what got me. I thought it literally only meant that.
  15. I'm logged in but can't find any kind of a tab to start a thread or topic. This PC build site really seems to get a lot of informative traffic, although the server seems a little slow. Thank you! http://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc
  16. For those of you that were helping me, I have a little update. I discovered that there is a "fool proof" (at least it was for me) three application system to add the Vista Side bar and it's gadgets to XP. Apparently it's been available for quite some time. I installed the three apps and added the weather gadget and all is well! I'm including the link if anyone cares to play with it. Thank you again! http://joshoon.devia...6472?loggedin=1
  17. Wow, that was really nice of you to do! I'll mess with it over the weekend. Also, relative to changing the code, that is what happened in my original thread. It didn't exactly paste correctly. Thank you again and have a good weekend!
  18. Thank you for the replies. The best weather app was WeatherPulse. It included a desklet for the desktop. It could be moved around, you could change its transparency and with earlier versions even change its color. Unfortunately weather.com no longer is providing free feeds to it. I actually have a weather station and am always just one click away from from the temperature and/or forcast but it was also just very convenient seeing the temperature in the system tray and on the desktop when not having any programs or browsers open. I'll paste the code again, not sure why it is not rendering properly. I'm just trying to get rid of the "large" white box. I'm also not sure how to get it on a particular area on the destop but that is just an inconvenience. Here also are the XP directions: Instead of copying all of the code, copy only the URL for the image file. This can be found in the image source tag which starts with < img src="http... Copy the text within the tag starting with "http" and, for Classic stickers, ending with the "gif" or, for New stickers, ending with "ForcedState=". For Windows XP: Right click on your desktop and click "Properties". Go to the Desktop tab, then click the "Customize Desktop..." button. Choose the Web tab, then click on the "New..." button. Paste (Ctrl+V) the URL for the Weather Sticker into the Location box, then click OK. Back in the Desktop Items window, the URL for your Weather Sticker should show with a checked box next to it. Click Apply then OK, and it should appear on your Desktop. <span style="display: block !important; width: 180px; text-align: center; font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12px;"><a href="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=zmw:16354.1.99999&bannertypeclick=wu_blueglass" title="Titusville, Pennsylvania Weather Forecast"><img src="http://weathersticker.wunderground.com/weathersticker/cgi-bin/banner/ban/wxBanner?bannertype=wu_blueglass&airportcode=KFKL&ForcedCity=Titusville&ForcedState=PA&zipcode=16354&language=EN" alt="Find more about Weather in Titusville, PA" width="160" /></a><br><a href="http://www.wunderground.com" title="Get latest Weather Forecast updates" style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12px">Click for weather forecast</a></span>
  19. I installed this WeatherUnderground widget with the following html code but it doesn't render properly. Also, I can't figure out how to set the location on the desktop or move it. This is on an XP system with a 1600x900 resolution monitor and the actual code added to the destop is in blue. The border you see is actually just part of the wallpaper. The issue is the large block of white instead of just the widget!

  20. Cleaning it regularly does seem like a good idea!
  21. Actually it's pretty clean. I was just throwing it out here in case it would get really bad. I love it to much to ever take the chance!
  22. So most of you are probably are aware that it is "supposedly safe" to clean a keyboard in a dishwasher. So humor me and assume that it is for a normal non-illuminated one. I use a Logitech illuminated keyboard. Do you think there would be greater risk involved putting it in the dishwasher, e.g. damaging the LEDs or whatever they use to illuminate the keys? No jokes please and thank you!
