    How to remove extra space in taskbar pinned items?

    hey guys, Is there any way to remove the extra gap/space of pinned items in the windows 8 taskbar? Right now I'm using a program called "7+ Taskbar Tweaker", it has an interesting option "Remove Extra Gap" of pinned items. I'm using it for this specific option and it works fine however I have...

    Frequent BSOD

    It could be the driver code is just not compatible with Windows 8 or in some cases the driver is buggy and tries to access memory space it's not supposed to causing the BSOD. You have to try and make sure all drivers are compatible with windows 8 to dismiss that possibility and then you can move...

    BSOD Issues

    I think your BSOD is caused by drivers simply because there are simply because of the out-of-date drivers on your system, I saw some go as far back as 2007. Your laptop is not really meant for Windows 8 if I'm truthful, I say this because when I went to the manufacturers website all I could find...

    BSOD Issues

    Hi there are some drivers on your system that are out-of-date, please update these drivers or remove them if un-needed. Since I can't find Windows 8 drivers for your system I suggest un-installing them, it's possible Windows 8 will have it's own versions of them: rixdpx64.sys, rimmpx64.sys -...

    Solved Disable UAC But Still Use Windows Apps?

    Thanks Brink, seems that I have found a good balance now with the aid of that file. Here's what I did: 1. Enable UAC via a tool called TweakUAC which has a "silent" UAC mode. 2. Run that reg file. 3. Took full permissions on my C: drive. So far everything seems to be working ok and I can run...

    Solved Disable UAC But Still Use Windows Apps?

    I can't really remember what I was trying to copy but it was something from my downloads folder into another folder, it wasn't windows or any other "protected" folder. Eventually I just set permissions to allow the files to be copied, but I really didn't want to have to do that every-time I...

    Solved Disable UAC But Still Use Windows Apps?

    I didn't really want this thread to become a discussion on how effective UAC is or not when it comes to security. I just don't like a "choice" being taken away from me or forced into doing something. Microsoft can't or shouldn't assume all users need protecting from themselves, I can see the...

    Solved Disable UAC But Still Use Windows Apps?

    Thanks for the information. While I agree with some of your points I'd still like the option to do so. I've never relied on UAC for malware detection, I use an anti-virus program for that.

    Solved Disable UAC But Still Use Windows Apps?

    Hi Guys, I have been using Windows 8 Pro 64bit version for a few months now and after a few teething problems I love it. I have disabled the UAC via the control panel, registry and the Local Security Policy editor etc... so now I don't get any popups at all. It's come to a point though where I...
