    Do you plan to use third-party antivirus and firewall?

    Comodo Firewall + Avast Free + Malwarebytes + Common Sense.

    Solved Auto Launch?

    You're very welcome. I'm glad I could help.

    Solved Auto Launch?

    Open up a File Explorer window (a folder, My Computer, etc.), and paste the following into the Address Bar: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\AutoPlay Make sure "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices" is checked at the top.

    3.79 gig usable from 4 gig installed memory!

    "azasadny" is correct. The system is using that 'missing' memory for the onboard graphics chip and possibly other things like caching the BIOS into memory.

    Solved Performance Lag Spikes, CPU Usage Decreases

    Sounds to me like your CPU is throttling down for some reason, which would likely be because of it overheating. According to your system specs, I'm assuming you're using a laptop. If you're able to, go into your BIOS (usually by pressing 'Del' or some Function key like F1, F2, etc.) and see if...

    Solved Alt+Tab out of Games = Bad

    I found another thing that's causing the alt+tab problem: MSI Afterburner's OSD. Disable it and you're good to go (sucks though). @ briente - I don't know of any other programs that do that. Try searching around and you might find one. Good luck to you.

    Solved Alt+Tab out of Games = Bad

    It appears that the Hot Corners on the Desktop are what's causing it. Since I'm using Start8 from Stardock, I'm able to disable those and so far no issues.

    Solved Alt+Tab out of Games = Bad

    All day today Smite has been alt-tabbing itself. Nothing running in the background or anything. I'm going to switch back to 7 asap. Screw this garbage OS.

    NetLimiter VS NetBalancer: Which Is Better?

    You have a good point with the support issue. I don't know of that personally because I took the route of 'trying before buying' with NL, though I never bought it. On the other hand, I don't really need it either so it's been long gone from my storage. Either way, I would suggest to keep looking...

    NetLimiter VS NetBalancer: Which Is Better?

    I've used NetLimiter and it was pretty easy to use (I didn't use the built-in firewall though since I use Comodo), but I've never used NetBalancer. When running torrents I'd recommend using the program's bandwidth limiter (uTorrent's is good).

    Solved Window 8 Store Not updating

    Make sure you have Windows Firewall on even if you're using another one like Comodo - otherwise it won't either. (I know, it's retarded)

    Solved Programs not opening on startup

    Already tried disabling Fast Startup - didn't work. Thanks though. I just started using Task Scheduler and that works fine (make sure to set it to 'at log on' as any user or it won't work. @ bwood720 - I'd rather not rewrite my programs just to change the registry key. I'll just stick to using...

    Solved Programs not opening on startup

    Again, no. They do not. They all must be started manually.

    Solved Alt+Tab out of Games = Bad

    I've found that if you alt+tab out of games in Windows 8 Pro, you can't tab back in to it and have to open Task Manager to force close it. When you look at the game while doing this you'll usually see that game is not responding. Just wondering if there's a way to fix this or should I just wait...

    Can anybody help me with this?
