  1. MAIN SYSTEM: Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate - mouse or explorer.exe hands up system completely odify Hi - You guys helped me some time ago with W7 crashing on this machine. Thanks for that. Now, the MAIN machine has not had that problem but recently the mouse (or maybe it is explorer.exe) freezes the system. What I mean is that the mouse and keyboard become unresponsive and whatever programs are funning just stop processing. I installed a new Logitch driver and Setpoint thingie, but they have not helped the situation. Sometimes, I notice it when I I grab windo
  2. On my SECONDARY SYSTEM: I used CCcleaner and now Windows 7 is not genuine. What to do about this?
  3. Thanks, Alan, for you comments on 2013 09 20. Very helpful. sorry that I did not thank you when I read it. Happy New Year!
  4. Thanks, nukecad. I will go there. Did not know they had a forum. So, what exactly does CCleaner do?
  5. [Windows 7 64b Ultimate on Dell T7500] I ran MalwareBytes (machine became very SLOW) and found 627 PUPs. One of them was flagged as serious malware I only choose this PUP marked serious and told MalwareBytes to quarantine it. MalwareBytes said restart of machine necessary to complete job. I rebooted. And, after that on restart Windows "desktop" came back but it is totally black. Mouse moves around screens. Did restart a second time. Same thing. So, I restarted in Safe Mode. Same thing. Mouse moves. Black desktop. So, John_C told me to do F8 "Use
  6. Hi again - I am not sure what size I will change to with the re-partitioning yet. But, I was poking around my C drive and was wondering if someone can tell me if I can delete (or is there a program to do it) any of the attached files in SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION folder that are older than the date of my last reboot. I used Ztree for this list and sorted by size and then by date. Thanks again.
  7. Thanks much for all the great information Alan_B and eL_PuSHeR. I really appreciate it, very, very much. Best to you both.
  8. OK - thanks dvdbane and Derek891 - I understand that defrag will not help me. Maybe you know of a way to identify what is out there so I could take it off independently and, then, make my image. I can not really zip things as this is OS volume and contains only OS and programs. I have already deleted all the temp Internet, etc stuff. - Thanks for your help.
  9. Hi - I have a C drive (Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit) that has only 435 used Gbytes on a 2 TB drive. I am attempting to use an image backup to restore to a 1 TB drive. But, after defrag, the image is still over 1 TB. How can i shrink it further so I can restore to 1 TB drive? Thanks.
  10. Hi Haxelnut, login123 and Alan_B I am learning (sort of) Linux Mint Olivia, and, as I said, I like it. But, I have noticed that Olivia 15 will only be supported until Jan 2014 and Maya will be supported until 2017. I am wondering if I should switch to Maya and what I would be missing if I did. In February 2014 would I have to do a new install of LM 16? I am not a typical male and do not look forward to changing my woman each year. I would appreciate any thoughts And, BTW, I got over the boot problem,etc. with help from "programming is hard blog" and I have described it here
  11. Howdy Alan_B, Thanks for the suggestion. I will add it to my list and definitely check it out. My list is long and I want to shorten it before I waste peoples time with my blather. Thanks again.
  12. Hi login123, Thanks for the comments. Backup and Protection: Well, what I have been doing for a long time was having a RAID1 C drive and a RAID1 D drive. For protection, I use 4 Hitachi 2TB Deskstars (same drive model that I have been using in my Synology NAS [ for"]http://www.synology....+&lang=us]��for almost 6 years with no problem); and for backup I had been using MS Image Backup that works with stand alone MS boot disc. I (half-ass) tested it once by adding a 5th drive and watching the restore perform. The 5th drive then booted up. I was (dumbly and ignorantly) happy.
  13. Great to see hazelnut, Alan_B and login123 are following and interested in what the future holds for my quest. I have not yet gotten into application comparing, etc. In addition to this forum, I have to say the Mint forum is fabulous also. It is really, all of you people. I owe it all to you. Thank you, peoples, one and all! FWIW, you might like to know I am doing this on two levels. Level 1 - Dell Optiplex - Mint and VB installed and working with first guest XP pro 32 bit SP2 Since the Optiplex has COA for XP I have contacted MS to use that COA for the XP guest; they
  14. Installed Virtual Box and it is going very well. And it is all thanks to Hazelnut and login123! Thanks very, very much .
