Is it possible to change sequence settings after you start a project? Also, how can I know what sequence of parameters are best for clips that I have?
The clips I have are HD and .mp3. MTS files.
In the latest version of Premiere Pro, it is possible to change the settings for the sequence.
You know what settings are best knowing what you are doing. (Personally I'm fan of formal education for this.) I know that sounds sarcastic, but, there is no right answer to the question whose parameters are the best. There are many variables here, then... you really need to know what you're doing.

I think I have a virus. I see on my computer a few applications with and installed as of 2004. The computer was purchased in 2007. When I run it in safe mode, it works fine and all applications have a date of 2007 or newer. Should I delete the programs of 2004? How can you know what is safe to delete?
This is not an indication of malware. Could be those are placed on the
computer by the manufacturer of the system and that was the date that firstly, they prepared their
for massive installation, or if they did not set a date and be used arbitrarily.

Original title: completely clueless
I'm totally clueless when it comes to computers, but I try very hard to learn. I am using the help section a LOT, but I can't seem to find an answer to the only thing that makes me crazy. How can you know what drivers and programs are essential and those that can be deleted without harming my computer? I have a very basic net accountant I learn on before I screw up a portable more expensive and I do a cleaning on my C and D drives to improve performance because it runs so slow but it tells me I have the drivers who slow down Windows. I would greatky appreciate any assistance from someone who has the patience of a saint and is willing to take the time to explain it to me, in terms laymans. Thanks in advance
Drivers: you should know what you bought (in your machine) and what * you * want out of it. If you want stability and things work properly - let alone the drivers. If you want more performance check (and other games) in the drivers of motherboard chipset and video network from the manufacturers Web site... For more stability stick with the OEM website (HP, Dell, Lenovo - the assembler of the whole machine) and slightly more performance/push the limits (even if they want to work too - so still some stability) - access to websites of its components manufacturer.
With regard to the programs: you can decide what you use and do not use. If you are not sure, look it up (Google) or ask.

My Adobe Flash Player keeps crashing. I just downloaded Flash Player Plugin from 14 and noticed that I have 5 other Adobe programs on my computer. How can I know which ones I need to keep? Those I have is:
Acrobat.com installed 7/03/2010; Flash Player 13 Active X installed 5/14/2014; Flash Player 14 Plugin installed 7/09/2014; Reader X (10.1.10) installed 5/19/2014; and Shockwave Player 12.0 installed 9/16/2013.
Given that you list the plugins installed below, any information about those do not necessary would be useful.
You don't need everything! But if you don't there is the 'stuff' you won't be able to do on the internet or read when you download a file that needs an Adobe program or plugin.
Flash Player 13 Active X installed 14/05/2014; = is for Internet Explorer
Acrobat.com installed on 03/07/2010; and Reader X (10.1.10) installed on 19/05/2014; You can display the same type of files - PDF - except the old plugin for Acrobat don't is not "seen" by Firefox, maybe an IE-only to Acrobat version?
Shockwave Player 12.0 installed 16/09/2013. = is not used too much more - I got rid of him (as) 5 or 7 years and don't even Miss
I have a number of computers dell, optiplex 380. 780 and 7 optiplex 760 upgrade the processor with four cores, if possible, but I find that each model has 2 motherboard ' possibilities, how do find out what motherboard, I have the service tag, and if they can take the quad cores. As I understand it a motherboard can take single core dual cpu and motherboard, it is possible to upgrade to a quad core cpu
There is no such thing as serial number based on the motherboard. Serial numbers are unique.
SFF and USFF power supplies tend to be too small.
The NDP or DELL of the Board part NUMBER is on THE Board of DIRECTORS and is not connected either to the
SERVICE TAG which is the same as the serial number.
Carrots or not is TOTALLY NOT related to the service tag Associates to the power supply and other factors.
I got a 2T HD connected to my AirPort Extreme to use as a Time Machine backup - the HD 2 t was too small for my home network, so I've upgraded to a hard drive of 6 t. Now I can't connect to my drive 6 t of Time Machine to back up. I read a support link that says the time machine backup only works with a model AirPort Extreme 802.11ac only. How can I find out what kind of AirPort Extreme I have. If my AirPort Extreme is "outdated" upgrade to the 802.11ac will allow me to use my HD external 6 t?
On your Mac...
Open AirPort Utility (Finder > Applications > utilities > AirPort Utility)

Have you actually installed an antivirus application?
Look at the system of Notification area (next to the time display). Place the cursor of the mouse on each of the icons (make sure to click the chevron pointing to the left if it is present to display all icons). Each icon should have a pop up balloon, explaining that it is.
If one of the icons associated with your antivirus application, right-click and you should get a menu that includes an option to turn it off temporarily. If a right click does not work, [to the left] double click it.
If none of the icons seem to be an antivirus application, follow these steps:
1. open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
2. type the following lines in the black command prompt window and press ENTER after each line
Tasklist/SVC > '% userprofile%\Desktop\MyTasks.txt '.
3. go to your desktop, then double-click on the MyTasks.txt file
4 copy the contents of the MyTasks.txt and paste into your answer here
You can remove MyTasks.txt after you copy and paste its content in your response.
I tried to free up space on my hard drive and I went to disk management and discovered that I have a FAT32 partition. This partition has a capacity of 2.9 GB and is currently greater than 90% full. How can I find on which is stored here? Is there a reason that this partition is necessary? I've certainly not implemented (at least not on purpose). I use Windows XP.
The best thing to do would be to consult your computer's documentation and see if there's information to the service partition.
You can watch the partition with disk editing tools such as Acronis Disk Director or you can use a partition simple editing tool like PtEdit32 from Symantec to change the partition type and you can then watch the partition with Windows Explorer.
Make a note of the type of partition until you change it so that you can then set it back as it was. The partition is probably a hidden type 1 c, if you want to change for a type of 0C to view it. A reboot is required for Windows see and mount the partition to make it available to Windows Explorer or disk management tool.
Slippery fingers or user errors when you use the drive or the partition, editing tools can lead to the loss of all data on the disk! To aid PtEdit32 is quite easy and simple, but it requires a little knowledge and understanding of (or a willingness to learn) how partitions are organized and identified. You can download PtEdit32 from the Symantec FTP server, which is easy to find with a search on the net: http://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=A0oG7mbsbOxMsWcBUlZXNyoA?p=ftp.symantec.com+ptedit32&fr2=sb-top&fr=yfp-t-501
You can look, but don't delete or modify files inside the service partition, if you do the restore process may fail when you most need!
I have a T60 laptop and have had problems with the wireless is disconnecting even with intense beep. Sometimes, after that it disconnects, I select the repair for reconnection. When I do that, I get a crash with blue screen.
