    Anyone using Windows System Control Center (WSCC) ?

    I just wonder why I see new releases of programs by NirSoft and SysInternals but when I check for updates in WSCC it only showed new utilities available once after installation. Seems weird. They do not have a dedicated forum on their web site or I would ask there. I am using it "for private...

    Solved ToolWiz Time Machine anyone using it?

    I am reading a forum from when ToolWiz Time Machine was in beta. The reaction of most of the people trying it was very positive. Since my Restore Points almost never work I was thinking of using Time Machine in tandem with Macrium Reflect. Also I think it may have embedded the ToolWiz Time...

    Select only what I want to keep in Start Screen?

    There seems to be no "toggle selection" so that I just just tag what I want to keep in Start Screen and reverse it then unpin it. Anyway know a trick? Delete all would look too lame. And I need to keep Desktop anyway. So I may as well leave one or two like Weather. I just don't want to...

    My CPU runs cool enough it seems. But I notice Flash Player and just about everything else uses a lot of it. Also when I toggle the Firefox browser to "use hw accel when available" I can detect no difference. I suspect this GPU is not capable of it. Anyone know for sure? Here's what Speccy...
