    BitLocker - Turn On or Off for OS Drive in Windows 8

    Hi Shawn, Been a while since someone posted on this topic, but I am keen on using Bitlocker and giving it a go for its simplicity as an encryption tool. My question is, if I encrypt, say a Thumb drive or external HDD using Bitlocker on Windows 10, would I then be able to go on to another...

    LMB morphed into RMB,scroll wheel began zooming - Help

    Hi Guys, This problem I'm about to describe has happened to me on 2 separate occassions, once about 3 months ago and last night. I was just doing some surfing and "using MS Word" [could be part of the problem] when all of a sudden weird things started happening. My Word doc started to zoom in...

    EUESU folder with lots of small files. Was in my 'startup'

    Hi All, I noticed today a strange entry in my startup list. I often check to see what is there just incase there is something I don't need starting up with the system and can disable. Today I noticed an entry called "Start.vbs" in a folder called "EUESU" in my Users directory...

    My Windows 8 Laptop does not see My Windows 7 Laptop

    Thanks guys. Have done all those check points and then some. Yes it does work when typing in the actual IP address at the top in File Explorer from the Windows 8 Laptop, but in reverse it does not work from the Windows 7 laptop, so technically I guess it somewhat solves the problem when at...

    My Windows 8 Laptop does not see My Windows 7 Laptop

    ATF Cleaner

    Just ran ATF Cleaner after using the standard CCleaner [without CCenhancer] and it found an additional 38 MB of crap. Not much I guess but it doesn't hurt to run ATF Cleaner, it's quite quick.

    delete recovery partition

    I think DELL's purpose here is since they no longer ship most laptops with an OEM DVD of the OS [but for an optional fee they will :p], they ask you to create your own recovery disks using their pre-installed DELL backup and recovery software already on the system when you get it delivered which...

    delete recovery partition

    thanks guys @ theog - I created the Recovery partition on 3 DVD's as per Dells included software and since I now have the OS a new drive, I don't mind reclaiming an extra 10GB of space. The reason I am keeping the original drive [its a 1TB HDD] with the OS still on it, is that I heard...

    delete recovery partition

    I am just curious about the part he asks: "Is your recovery partition before or after your windows partition?" He gives details on if its before.. what if it's after if that makes any difference??

    delete recovery partition

    Hey Brooklyn, I am basically in the same situation as the OP, I installed an SSD and put windows 8 on that and moved the HDD into the second drive bay of the laptop [it has 2 drive bays], but left the HDD as was, it also has WIndows 8 on it, thats how I got it from DELL, meaning I didn't delete...

    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    Thanks Brink, however I guess I still don't know why [1] The Disk cleanup keeps pausing 2/3 of the way through when cleaning the System Restore and Shadow Copies option and [2] why it did not respond when I ran DISM /Scanhealth command. I think I may leave it for now and not worry about it too...
