Download and run JDiskReport.

There are a number of things you can do to- temporarily - free up disk space.  The only real solution, however, is to get a larger hard drive.

  • You can run Disk Cleanup (start > run > cleanmgr > OK)
  • You can reduce the size allocated for the restoration of the system to about 1 GB (right click on desktop > properties > system restore > settings)
  • You can disable hibernation (if you don't use it) (right click on an empty spot on the desktop > properties > screen saver > power > Hibernate)
  • You can disable the indexing of the drive, which will also speed up your computer a bit (http://lifehacker.com/031440/turn-off-indexing-and-speed-up-windows-xp)
  • You can reduce the size of your Internet browser cache (depending on the browser that you use)
  • You can remove most of the $NTUninstallKBxxxxxx files $ following the directions here: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/Hotfix_backup.htm (read the warnings in the gray box first)

But none of these answers you will earn really large amounts of space for very long.  The term solution time is a bigger hard drive.

In the meantime, download and run JDiskReport, that will show you graphically what files take up more space and seem to so indicate what files to delete or uninstall applications.

    keimanzero,

    Comcast of Norton Security Suite version is installed? If Yes, who and perhaps malware is most likely to cause questions you have published, in particular the failure of the restoration of the system.
    First, configure the system to boot - How to solve a problem by performing a boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    NOTE: Start-up mode minimum state all the 3rd party firewalls will be disabled. Open Control Panel > Windows Firewall to make sure that the native firewall of Windows 7 is now on.

    Download and Save the update system (or CheckSUR) tool. You will need to download the specific Version of CheckSUR corresponding to the architecture of the system to Windows 7. If you do not know the architecture of the system, and then click the link that says "Click here to show or hide the instructions step by step with images" under method 2: download the update directly system preparation tool from Microsoft Download Center .
    Description of the preparation tool system update for Windows Vista for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

    Once the download is complete, close all open programs and browsers. Now, run CheckSUR with the system connected to the internet because it will download the .cab for system files. Reboot once CheckSUR is complete.

    Secondly, I suggest that you run the File Checker system while in the same clean boot state.
    To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start and type cmd in the field search programs and files .
    2. Right click on cmd.exe in the programs of list, and then choose 'run as administrator '.
      If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click on continue.
    3. At the command prompt, enter the following line exactly as written including the space between thec and the/and then press ENTER:
      sfc/scannow

    When the analysis is complete, test to see if the problems facing the system have been resolved.

    If they are not, you will need to contact Norton support for the version of Norton Internet Security Comcast to get help, or just uninstall NIS, run the Norton removal tool (right click Norton_Removal_Tool.exe, choose "Run as Administrator"), reboot and then check to see if the problems are still occurring.

    The less you have to run all the time, most things you want to run will perform:

    Use Autoruns to understand this all starts when your computer's / when you log in.  Look for whatever it is you do not know using Google (or ask here.)  You can hopefully figure out if there are things from when your computer does (or connect) you don't not need and then configure them (through their own built-in mechanisms is the preferred method) so they do not - start using your resources without reason.

    You can download and use Process Explorer to see exactly what is taking your time processor/CPU and memory.  This can help you to identify applications that you might want to consider alternatives for and get rid of all together.

  • How can I find and apply a new CSS rule

    I want to edit a css rule that currently leads the majority of my pages. The current rule is called ".twoColFixLTHdr #mainContent. The property I want to change to the new pages is the left margin of 250 pixels. I want to copy all the properties of the old rule and the new left margin change and apply this new rule CSS for only new pages.
    I was able to reproduce the old CSS rule and apply the change to the margin and rename the rule «.twoColFixLTHdr #mainContentArt» How can I find and apply this new rule to the new page?
    Thank you
    Lou

    First of all, it is always better to provide a link to your page, so people can see your code and CSS. Screenshots are rarely useful.

    If you double-click on the name of the file in the window Style CSS (you provided a jpg of it), it will bring up the interface and you can make changes to them here. If you click once, then right-click and select go to the Code, it will open the file in DW.

    I want to emphasize that these are "classes", and to apply you must identify them as such, for example

    So if you want, you can add the new class and apply it to the pages you wanted.

    I very strongly suggest you play with the code view, it will put things in a new light that makes life easeir.

    What is "Sea Hero Quest" - it does not resemble music, kind of Apple's music is not relevant here. If it's a game, which is what it sounds like, then the version in the App Store does not on anything other than iOS, or in the Mac App Store on something other than a Mac.
