How can I find what firewall is running on my computer? I have used norton, mcafree, avg in the past. All have been removed through programs removal program. I turned off my windows firewall and Security Center says I still have firewalls. I can't access itunes store or download programs (such as the overdrive media). I don't have a router, but have tried that disconnect and connect the computer directly to the modem. Still have the problem.
Security applications - especially those of McAfee and Norton - cannot be completely removed using the control panel > Add / Remove programs.
For McAfee, see http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=1033&id=TS100507 which explains how to use the McAfee Consumer Products Removal (that you can get the link in this article).
For AVG, see http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities
If for some reason you want to reinstall everything before (that I do not recommend), don't forget to make a record of your license key before uninstalling. The links above should explain how to do this.
Some motherboards with nVidia chipsets include a hardware firewall (nVidia ActiveArmor). I'm not positive on how to determine if you have this or not, but I suggest starting with a glance at the "network adapter" section of the Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK).
PS: even if you're experienced, do not use your router. It provides a layer of protection between you and the Internet, if you connect with all firewalls disabled.
I have an account with several licenses in an office. I can't find a way to know which computer is using this license. Is it possible to access it through my account while logged in? If this is not the case, can I access it somehow by being physically to each computer?
Since the fair administration Console you have assigned seats, according to me, who will provide you with the information on the machine of the assigned.

How to find what processes are running on my computer and use it from memory?
You can press Ctrl-Shift-Escape to see which processes are underway and those who is using memory (and how much they use). Although the memory usage is not as important as how they use lots of CPU, which is what can make your computer slow if there are too many programs use the CPU at the same time. For memory, even if she says that he uses a lot, an inactive program ' pages on "memory to the hard disk and it frees room for other programs to use, is not as important as the CPU generally (unless you are very very low on memory).

Worth the read as:
"How to optimize Windows 8.1 for a desktop PC.
" " Performance & maintenance"
And I would check to see if it has damaged system files.
Each method/step below progresses to another if the first does not all corrupted files which are, etc..
«Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files»
And these eightforums.com tutorials are very detailed for the problems resulting from Scan SFC:
"How to run the command" SFC/scannow"at the start or in Windows 8 and 8.1" . "
Read it in conjunction with the rest of the information they give link above.
If SFC could not fix something, then run the new command to see if it can be able to next time. Sometimes, it can take by running the sfc/scannow command 3 times restart the PC after each time completely fix everything what he is capable of.
If this isn't the case, then run Dism/online/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to repair any corruption component store, restart the PC later and try the sfc/scannow command.
If still no, then try using ONE OPTION above to run the command sfc/scannow at the start
If still no, then you could do a Refresh of Windows 8, or run a System Restore using a restore point dated before the wrong file occurred to fix. You may need to repeat doing a restore of the system until you find a restore point that is older that may work.
If not yet, then you can use the steps in the TIP box in the section THREE OPTION to manually replace the files SFC could not fix.
"How to update windows 8 and 8.1" . "
Refresh your PC goes like this:
- The PC starts in Windows RE (Recovery Eenvironment).
- Windows RE scans the hard drive for your data, settings, and applications and puts them aside (on the same drive).
- Windows RE installs a new copy of Windows.
- Windows RE restores the data, settings, and applications, which it set aside in the newly installed copy of Windows.
- The PC reboots into the newly installed copy of Windows.
"How to reset Windows 8 and Windows 8.1" . "
"When you reboot your PC, the drive will be completely reset and all your applications and your files will be removed it." Windows 8 will be reinstalled, and you need to change any settings, and then reinstall all the apps you want to come back after the reset. If you know if all the files you don't want to lose, then you must back up these files before you start resetting.
See you soon.

My computer with two hard drives and 2 starting systems has the car crash in the solid state. When I got the new drive and tried to restore from time capsule, I lost some data. How can I see what backups are on the time capsule? My laptop is also saved to the time capsule. Everything is in 'Data' when I look through the Airport utility.

Time Machine backup to a sparsebundle.
The sparsebundle will use the share name of computer. So, it should be obvious who is your Macbook and that is your Macpro.
Open the sparsebundle in Finder and keep open the subfolders until you get to the backup of each separate hard drive...
You has of course set the exclusion in Time Machine?
By default, Time Machine will exclude your second drive unless you have included it. Did you?
Once you get to this level during the backup, you can do a full restore manually whenever you want.

If I get a data execution prevention message, how can I find which program has been interrupted?
Usually the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) automatically monitors Windows programs and services. You can increase your protection by having DEP monitor all programs.
For the program being stopped by DEP, you will receive an error message indicating the cause of the stop and the name of the program.
For more information you can consult.

I. Suuresh Kumar - Microsoft technical support.
I have a multiple basic computer, except a very processor that is only designed to run on one heart program (maybe you have heard of him; Dwarf Fortress. Otherwise, it is not really necessary, but good). Now I wonder, how can I set the program to run only on a single heart, whenever I start it? I have a shortcut on my desktop, so if it is not possible to change the parameters of the program or other stuff like in Windows itself, I don't have the ability to change the shortcut to make it work on a carrot.
Thank you for using the Microsoft Windows Vista Forums.
Since given as each program/software is configured differently to work on mulit or transformation of a nucleus there is nothing that Vista can do to change that. You need to change something in the formula of the show itself. I enclose a link below which talks about this issue. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
