    computer freezes then recovers without crashes or error messages/logs

    Thank you for your suggestions! drivers: I'm a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" kind of guy, so I never update any software that works fine, including drivers. Most people encounter issues because they always mess around with their software environment, always updating everything 'just for...

    How to make GPT volume bootable

    Have you tried booting your windows installation media with the original drive inside, selecting "repair your computer" then using: bootrec /fixmbr bootrec /fixboot bootrec /rebuildbcd ?

    computer freezes then recovers without crashes or error messages/logs

    I consider myself an IT professional, but there is this issue I can't figure out, because no actual error message is associated with the occurrence. Sometimes - unfortunately more and more often, which prompted me to write here - my explorer just freezes for 10-20 minutes, then recovers and...

    Pin a .jar to the taskbar (read post for specifics)

    Yea, I ended up with a similar solution. I just pinned javaw.exe to my taskbar, and I'm accessing the jar file through its jump list.

    Low memory warning with plenty of free RAM left

    theveterans I guess I have no other options, I consider this however a by-design fault of Windows, and a major inconvenience. Shawn Thanks Shawn, that was quite a read, and helped me to understand what's going on. :) After reading pretty much everything in your links I've come to the...

    Low memory warning with plenty of free RAM left

    What I see this message with It happens every time I reach 6-5 GB left, and pretty much 80% of my applications (including svchost) drop dead once I reach the 4 GB mark. Whenever I get low memory warnings, Windows suggests me to close the one software with the highest memory consumption, and...

    Low memory warning with plenty of free RAM left

    The picture says it all. Usually when I have as "low" as 4 gigabytes of free RAM remaining (25% of my total RAM), that's when Windows starts crashing programs all over the place (no blue screens, just application crashes), to the point where I have to restart my computer. I would really like to...

    Change Notification Area Icon Size (Larger)

    Well, if there is no way to change the notification icon sizes specifically, I'm tempted to address the issue with a 3rd party tool to replace the taskbar entirely, with something that offers actual customization options, and doesn't waste 40 pixels of vertical space on a single row of 16 pixel...

    Well, the thread is old, but I'm looking for the same thing, and see no solution. Anyone?

    Pin a .jar to the taskbar (read post for specifics)

    Yes, that is the problem. I can only pin executable files to the taskbar, and a java app is not an executable per se. I even tried an exe wrapper, but that doesn't really solve anything, since the wrapper extracts the jar file first, then runs it, so in appearance it's not any different than...

    Pin a .jar to the taskbar (read post for specifics)

    I'd like to pin a .jar file to the taskbar, but in a way, that the pinned icon doesn't open a new instance of the program on the task bar, but uses the pinned icon itself as the application taskbar button. javaw.exe -jar "C:\path\to\executable.jar" cmd.exe /c "C:\path\to\executable.jar" both...

    Solved Can i disable minimize windows on taskbar thumbnail hover

    Curious. Would have never expected that doing what appears to be the same thing, just somewhere else would be any different. :) I already had aero peek disabled at the taskbar months ago, but disabling it now in visual effects as well resulted in the exact same thing I was looking for! Thank you!

    That was my first guess too, but it's already turned off.

    Solved Can i disable minimize windows on taskbar thumbnail hover

    I want my thumbnails, how else would I identify my windows? What I don't want is Windows switching to the window I have my mouse hovered on, and dropping every other window. I don't want to have any window switching (i.e. previewing the window) prior to actually clicking on the window's...
