  1. If the power supply device fan works properly, computer overheating is usually due to dust accumulation. To withdraw this dust you may use your domestic floor vacuum cleaner, as follows: 1.- Switch off your computer. 2.- If you use a desktop remove the covers of the mainboard space and apply the tip of the suction hose to every place where dust accumulation is seen and also to the back side of the power supply, so that all the dust is sucked. 4.- If your computer is a laptop you only need to apply the tip of the suction hose to each and every hole at the bottom of it. The reduced dimensions of the inner space considerably increases the strength of the air vacuum. HTH

  6. Hi, Virtual machine is of course the best option to run Microsoft and Linux together. You must mind nevertheless that the amount of memory needed for the guest OS will be taken away from the host machine and presented to the guest operating system as virtual computer's installed RAM. Since this moment the memory you give to the VM will not be available to your host OS while the VM is running. The VM may not even be able to start if that memory is not available. If you only run different Microsoft OS types you have the possibility of using the whole memory at any of them by installing each one at a different drive unit, choosing at boot the one you want from a boot list. As an added advantage you are able to modify anything or to install permanently any new application or update at each one of them.

  10. The easiest way is to deploy the Windows 7 install DVD .iso image using i.e. 7-Zip into a previously 4 GB (at least) FAT32 formatted pendrive to build an install Flash Pendrive. You may do the same for any other Microsoft OS, using of course always a different pendrive for each version.
