    computer freezes then recovers without crashes or error messages/logs

    I consider myself an IT professional, but there is this issue I can't figure out, because no actual error message is associated with the occurrence. Sometimes - unfortunately more and more often, which prompted me to write here - my explorer just freezes for 10-20 minutes, then recovers and...

    Low memory warning with plenty of free RAM left

    The picture says it all. Usually when I have as "low" as 4 gigabytes of free RAM remaining (25% of my total RAM), that's when Windows starts crashing programs all over the place (no blue screens, just application crashes), to the point where I have to restart my computer. I would really like to...

    Pin a .jar to the taskbar (read post for specifics)

    I'd like to pin a .jar file to the taskbar, but in a way, that the pinned icon doesn't open a new instance of the program on the task bar, but uses the pinned icon itself as the application taskbar button. javaw.exe -jar "C:\path\to\executable.jar" cmd.exe /c "C:\path\to\executable.jar" both...

    Solved Can i disable minimize windows on taskbar thumbnail hover

    Sorry for the barely understandable title, I couldn't fit my entire query within the character limit. Basically what I want is to disable the feature, that minimizes/hides all other windows when I hover over a taskbar thumbnail. It's extremely annoying when I hold meetings and presentations...

    Solved How do I read _application_ dump files?

    Hello! I've done a forum search before opening a new topic, and the solutions I found in other topics are for reading BSOD minidumps, not application dump files, so for example BlueScreenView won't do me any good. I have a 3rd party application that crashes frequently. The last time I created...

    stackhash crash with DEP turned off

    I have been told stackhash crashes are 99% DEP (Data Execution Prevention) related. I have disabled secure boot in my UEFI to be able to disable DEP using the command "bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff" in the command prompt, I verified after a reboot in the system settings, that DEP is...

    Where to add startup entry for earliest possible execution

    Hi there! I need to add a batch file to startup, but it needs to execute soon enough, so its results can already be used at the user login by several applications that have autostart enabled. Where would i need to add such an entry for the batch file? Adding it as a Windows service maybe? I...

    Is there a way to always trigger the "open with" dialogue?

    Hello! During my everyday computer use i not only view, but actually edit content. Having a file type associated by default with a viewer/player application is very counter productive for me at times, because i have to use the right click menu every single time if i want to open a file for...
