    Whats the best free registry cleaner?

    Even the SFC Scannow that Brink posted failed. It found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them!

    Whats the best free registry cleaner?

    OK I ran CClean and fixed 363 issues with the registry but it didnt fix the problem. I could not find anything else being reported thru Google. How can I really be the only one with this issue? Only thing I can think of now is to uninstall one program at a time although if its just that folder...

    Whats the best free registry cleaner?

    I used Microsoft Defender and MalwareBytes. Sounds like I should create a Restore Point before performing the CClean. I just cant think of what else could be causing this. It also creates a second Downloads icon in the left tree below (but not in) Network section. Strange... and only started...

    Whats the best free registry cleaner?

    Hi, something wacky is going on with my Downloads folder in Windows Explorer... opens every folder within it as duplicate, if I try to do renames, sometimes hangs and crashes. System was scanned and is clean so I want to check the integrity of the registry. Whats the best free tool to do this?

    Subfolders in Downloads opening DUPLICATE windows

    Um, no. I even tried opening by pressing Enter key after selecting the folder. It also only happens to the Downloads folder.

    Subfolders in Downloads opening DUPLICATE windows

    I've noticed in the last week that whenever I double-click a sub-folder in the Downloads folder, it opens TWO identical new windows. It's super annoying and wasnt happening before. I scanned for Malware AND ran MS Defender. Both came out clean. I should add that my Windows Explorer also now...

    Can a Monitor be connected to 2 computers at the same time

    Approaching This from Another Angle Hey Guys, I think I have found another way to approach this. I noticed from my research that there are a ton of HDMI splitters out there and they are way less expensive than KVM switches or DVI splitters (which are hard to find and very expensive). So...

    Can a Monitor be connected to 2 computers at the same time

    Maybe I should ask, will the VGA signal be less crisp than the DVI? Im sending a laptop thats 1920x1080 to a monitor thats 1680 x 1050. Just using its VGA port would be more simple but if the signal will be less crips, then maybe its worth the expense of getting a monitor switch where I can...

    Can a Monitor be connected to 2 computers at the same time

    Actually, maybe i did not explain myself properly. My monitor has 2 ports: 1 VGA. 1 DVI. I have 2 computers I would like to share it with. Ideally I would like to use the DVI as I believe it would give me a better signal. Or would it? Is there proof of that? So I could plug this device to...

    Can a Monitor be connected to 2 computers at the same time

    I cant believe I had not heard of KVM until today! Well to tell you the truth Im a bit weary of using the VGA output on that monitor..isnt that Analog? Wont be as crisp as the DVI will it? I guess in an ideal world there would exist a DVI splitter (like a Y adapter where I could have 2 incoming...

    Can a Monitor be connected to 2 computers at the same time

    I have a Menu item called "Auto Source". When I go in, I can select "Auto" or "Manual". It was set to Auto so I tried Manual and nothing happened. I wonder if its because it knows that nothing else is plugged in. In the meantime, I read about something called a KVM switch. I dont know if that...

    Can a Monitor be connected to 2 computers at the same time

    Hi, I have an extra monitor which I mostly use with my desktop thru its DVI connector. However I would like to use it also as an extra monitor for my laptop which sits on my piano. In this case I would use the extra monitor's only open port, which is VGA (which I would connect to my laptop...

    Cant get Desktop and Laptop synced with a custom theme!

    Hi, I made sure that both machines are logged in under same account and set to sync everything. Desktop machine is the Master, so to speak. The wallpaper files are actually physically stored on this machine but not in a library. I created a theme called Jetsetter and it links to those images for...

    How to make Folder Icons stick in OneDrive?

    I like to use custom icons for my folders, but noticed that whenever I wake the computer up from sleep or do a restart, all my custom icons assigned to the OneDrive section have all reverted back to the default icon. Does anyone know if this is a bug? Or otherwise how to make the icons "stick"...
