    Windows 7 Uptime

    Decided to turn off my main Windows 7 PC at home. Task Manager Up Time on the Performance tab has it at 703 days.
  3. I am helping with a project that is currently in the brainstorming phase, and I am not quite sure what kinds of terms to be using for searching. I am looking for some examples of solutions that can accomplish this goal. The basics of it are, there are multiple computers that have the same folder and file structure. There is a master location and child locations. When a file is added to (or updated on) the master location, it needs to be copied to the child location. The other requirement is that files need to be enabled for transfer, so that the child locations do not get updates that are not approved. For the network relation, the systems (master and children) are all on separate subnets and on different domains. The individual file sizes can range from 1KB to 10 GB. All of the servers are using (at least) Server 2008 R2 Standard. If you know of any programs, products or services that can accomplish this task, feel free to post them here. Links to paid products can be posted by established forum members only.

    Just How Much Does Google Really Know ...

    @Monroe be aware that since the European Union passed their Copyright Directive last month, posts like this with full text from news websites will not be allowed to be posted into the forum. This will be a blanket rule (unless IPB has a version with upload filters) once the Directive gets adopted by the EU member state(s) that this site operates under. In other words, get out of this habit now.
  5. KB link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4490511/windows-7-update-kb4490511 This update is in the Feb, March and April update rollups and at least one user has reported that it causes installation of MSI files to fail. Ref: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/45b92c66-deb6-4625-b1d4-95c6787850c8/february-and-march-rollups-break-windows-installer-junction?forum=w7itproinstall If anyone has installed this update, are you also experiencing this issue?

    Blue Screens around the world

    Not quite a blue screen, possibly one happened but was missed. Here we have a large building offering the choice to boot into Safe Mode.
  7. If anything, there are some issues with this ROM that the OP is using. It has an RSA cert on it, so it cannot be modified like that, or (from what I understand) it can, but can brick the system when flashed, if the flashing util even allows it. However, that link has lead me to this other thing that may be useful instead, without having to actually hack the rom (or fd) file itself. https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-READ-FIRST-Access-Advanced-settings-through-EFI-shell?pid=56913#pid56913

    NT 3.51, the unknown MS OS

    The notebook I had in college, a Compaq LTE 440 CX, had NT 3.51 installed.
  9. These Insyde BIOS are a real pain, there doesn't seem to be anything I can do with this as I do not have the tools. Everything I know about it involves hex editing and unfortunately there is no "key" for what is what.

    Can't delete "SOME" icons and pictures on desktop.

    I would try to delete them using an elevated command prompt.
  11. What BIOS do you have? Is it actually Insyde?

    Setup was unable to create a new system partition

    This is the modern internet, everything is instantly old! I try to use VisualStudio as little as humanly possible.

    Selling computer, need suggestions

    Yes the Windows 10 DVD should be able to do a clean install. The surefire way to make a local account during Windows 10 setup is for the computer to not have internet access. On a notebook it may be difficult. If you have a physical wireless switch or Fn button combo to turn the wireless off, do that. If you can't, make sure there are no open wireless networks around if within your power.

    How to backup up windows for a drive replacement.

    I had to use one of those (which has a free, which has a trial?, I forget, I think I used the one with the trial version) to do a spindle to SSD clone when Ghost couldn't do it. Ghost is usually decent enough for cloning between PATA/SATA spindle disks, but apparently some SSDs it can't do.

    @Willy Gee Thanks to you, this old thread is moving into Funny Farm. However if you post trash like this onto any other thread outside of Funny Farm, you'll be on permanent vacation.
