  1. I am sorry to eL_PuSHeR and to hazelnut. i did not intended to create another discussin here, since i was not the original question. It is just sometimes i get carry away. Will try not let that happen again. Cheers.
  2. I am glad you are ok. Firefigthers are heros that not always get the fully deserved recognition, but still are alway there for us, and our homes. +1 for them. Cheers.
  3. Hello DennisD, and thank you for your inputs. You are absolutely right about every thing you mentioned, and i think it will help a lot of people to finaly realize that backup is not a hidrance, but instead is really a life saver. It hurts nothing to be cautious, like they say: Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Not to mention, a lot, and i mean a lot of people that at least in my case, come to me complainig about the loss of important data, or the curroption of their pc OS or even the dead of they hard drive, and if they had made a proper backup of everything, not just the photos
  4. I didn t use the site for a couple years now, so i really don t remenber exactly how it looked before, but i went to look now, and i think that is clean, well organized and easily useable.
  5. Tasgandy, I looked at Macrium Reflect that you mentioned and, it looks like a great piece of software. I will take a time to test it and study a bit, but from what i am seeing right know, almost certainly will start to recomend the free version, ( i do not work right know with companies, on this moment only with home users) to my clients, well, at least to those ones who are open to the idea of backup. Thank you.
  6. Hello Tasgandy, i make mta words, my own. I never really had the unfortune, (thankfully), of loose my data, at least the really essencial one, but i am from Sao Paulo, Brasil and i lived a couple of years in Rio de Janeiro, and so i lived, as well as many of my clients, with the reallity of floods. I have seen litterally, people (clients), that i have become really good friend of, crying, (note, that i am not exagerating, i assure you), not because of the fact that they lost their computer, but because of hundreds of their family fotos,videos, some of them of dear people who had already past
  7. Yes you are right to. But what i meant was if generally is not good to have 2 antivirus, them why do it at all? Even if it there is a reasonable easy fix. And by the way, several people,not all of course, but several people, likes to play with system restore and disable it because of some trashy tweak they see on the internet, that tells them it make the pc faster, lighter etc..; Ok. What i mean is this: you know you can most of the time solve the issue. But if it is simply not right to do it, unless perhaps, the way eL_PuSHeR mentioned, then, why do it at all and have all the hedache? Unle
  8. Ok. I am sorry. Really i never heard or seen that software. So i guess you right about that. But what i meant was something like running security essentials and avast for exemple, is really bad. And in that point, do not come tell me that i am wrong because i already had duzens and duzens of clients who made that mistake and they OS whent straigth to garbage.
  9. Ok. I am sorry. But, i wasnt trying to help in a "tecnical way", since everyone said that avast was the problem, i merely made a sugestion to quicky solve the problem. Like when you cannot take coffe with sugar then you simply take it with sweetener....just sayin.... Sorry again, don t speek no more.
  10. Hello. I am new in here, but i searched on this forum, and forgive me if i am mistaken but i did not found anything concerning to backup habbits. So therefore i decided to say something about it for people to better understand the concept because many of my clients simply do it so wrong. Feel free to agree or disagree. 1- Most people, and i say again, MOST PEOPLE not everyone, tend to just copy and paste their files to another partition or even another hard drive and then delete the original ones, and think they have backed up their files. But that is just wrong, i mean, a real backup is w
  11. I have to agree with Derek and Loguin123, duplicate files, unless you really know what you are doing should not be messed with. Just like the registry. But then again, we only really learn with the mistakes we make, so if you really want, go ahead and play with it. Cheers.
  12. Avast is a nightmare. Just use security essentials if you have xp or seven or windows defender if you have windows 8. Much more lightweith on resources, and much mor problems free and it does the job perfectly. Cheers.
  13. Brad405red. If you dont know yet if your hard drive is damage, then just download this sftware HDD Regenerator, just google it and you will find it. I assure you. It is the best hard drive scanner software you can find. Burn a cd, then restart, go to boot option chose start from cd and scan your hard drive. If it is really damage it will show as B as in Bad Sector. I apolagize if you already have solve this problem, it s just i got to the conversation to late now and honestly didnt had the patiance to read all the replys. Anyway just trying to help. Think there s no harm in that. Cheers.
  14. Nergal is right. You can safely remove those via ccleaner. Just in case, do the backup option. Just to be safe. Cheers.
  15. mta is tottaly right. the pro version is the same or at least almost the same as the free version. And about the 1 GB left, well, i thingh mta is right again. check those options he mentioned and i thing you will be ok. at least i do select those options and everithyng works great for me. Cheers
  16. have you guys looked to see if it is not a problem with the windows task scheduler? i only say this because one time i tried to schedule a task for another software and it never really recorded that task. i searched and shearched and i found out that somehow i did something that screwed up the windows task scheduler. Cheers.
  17. Hello everyone. Assuming that derek891 and Juice really checked the three boxes in the advance tab like Juice said, i think Derek is right. I dont tweak my pagefile because i only have 4 GB of RAM and from my expirience tweaking doesnt do anything whort it for me. But like i said i tend to agree whit Derek. On the other hand i once defragged my pc and after that i still had not 8 but 5 GB of fragmented files. I then ran boot time defragg and after i analized it again the hard drive was almost fully defragged. So, i think Juice, that you should try to follow this two advices and supposedly yo
  18. PICNIC factor (Problem In Chair Not In Computer) :lol: :lol: . Nice one. Liked it. Cheers.
  19. Hello. About the defraggler. you can run and pause/stop and run again as you will it will not hurt in any way. About the overheating, well, whether a desktop or a laptop, try to remove the cover and see if it is to much dirty/dust. Sometimes is just that, other times can be a capacitor somewhere, but most likely near the processor or the BGA that either is blown/open or is in the process of being damage. If you are using a laptop then i sugest you to buy a....; i am sorry i don t know how to say in english; a base/support with coolers to put on the bottom of your laptop. Believe me, people
  20. Congratulation Piriform. Keep up the excelent work.
  21. Yes you can go ahed ad do the wipe. It will work.
  22. Registry cleaners for those who really dont now how to use them are just a horror movie, they should run from them like if they were running from the Devil itself. So my advice: Do Not Run The Registry Cleaner Unless You Really Know What You Are Doing It. Cheers.
  23. Hello. First thing you should try, is to do a system restore, back to the days or weeks before you started having problems. If you cannot make that for any reason at all, well, then i have to agree with hazelnut, about install windows 7 again. There are ways to get back your pc without reinstall the system, but honestly is just to much of a headache. It would take so much time and pain. About the registry. Well, registry cleaner in ccleaner is one of the most, if not the most safe cleaner on the web right now, but what most people still don t understand is that cleaning the registry, do not r
  24. Well i don t have really nothing to help you with your problem. Unless to say that i have been using ccleaner on all my machines as well on the machines of all my clients and it never gave me any problems at all. I am not sugesting that is your direct fault. But from my experience, whenever something goes wrong with a pc or a program, usually and generally comes from us who are using it. I mean, sometimes we pc owners do something on a program and we do it blindly without really knowing exactly what we are doing. And sometimes by doing that we delete someting we shouldn t or we select sometin
