Mr. VMware


The memory consumed, it's affecting the VM (memory affected by the VM, more general memory pages), i.e. "the memory usage. Active memory is usually much lower and calculated by the hypervisor using a mathematical formula.

    How can I determine which program opens a file or another program?

    I constantly get the message that xxxxx will not open this file. / Select a program to open this file/etc.

    Hi marco47,

    You want to get this prompt either if there is no program installed on the computer that opens the file type or you have not associated any program to open this type of file.

    See the link below to find out how to associate any type of file or Protocol with a program to open the file.

    Change the programs that Windows uses by default

    See the Microsoft article below and run the fixit tool to reset the associations of files on the computer.

    When you run an .exe on a Windows Vista-based or Windows 7 computer file, the file may start another program

  • How to determine which account is used on my ipad

    I did an update on my IPAD AIR for the new software. After the instalation, I step into my icloud account. What I have tried is the same that I use on my Iphone, but it does not work. I probably did another account that I don't remember now. I tried million of recovery options there but the result is zero. Is it possible to contact apple support by email and confirm my identity and the serial number of my camera just to prove that it is not stolen device.

    If you can't find your id, and if you were the original purchaser of the iPad (i.e. he not was purchased used) then you could try to go to an Apple Store (make a Genius Bar appointment if you do) or try to contact iTunes Support Online ( and see if they can remove the iPad on the account - they are likely to want to see proof of ownership before they could help by example an original receipt with the serial number on it

  • How to delete the process and free up memory?

    Hi - I have 110 processes running, using the memory of 78%.

    It started quite recently and I had the computer a long time.  I have a JPG file with a list of processes. I don't know how to tell which I can remove.  And, since I don't know how they all got here in the first place, I don't know what to do to avoid this problem in the future.

    I use WebRoot, which always has me protected in the past, so I'm not sure it's a virus.

    I would appreciate your help.

    With all due respect, you should have mentioned the 'insufficient memory' message in your initial post. He told respondents much more than your question rather generally on the liberation of memory.

    'Insufficient memory' usually means that you have a request for misconduct, one causing "a memory leak" by requiring increasing amounts of memory until none is left. You could easily find by clicking on the working set column heading so that the application to memory greater demand floats to the top. Observing this display for a few hours, you will soon know where the leak occurs.

    1. open the case and disconnect the power cables of all readers but

  • How to determine which software performs HTTPS scanning?

    In my work computer, Firefox has always gives the error "sec_error_unknown_issuer" and only on HTTPS sites.

    I browsed the forums and understood that it is most likely caused by software that scans of HTTPS. (See [this] ( and [this] response (

    However, I don't really know what software is running exactly the HTTPS protocol scan.

    Is it possible that I can determine what software did the sweep of HTTPS so that I'll be able to add its certificate to Firefox and so be able to use Firefox properly?

    Thank you very much in advance


    Apparently, the proxy server that uses the KFSCaRoot certificate (which does not much research) is imperfect if it allows some sites around.

    Try using Chrome for this next step, which is to display and export the certificate signature, assuming that you trust little matter it is to read all your traffic.


    • Open a secure chrome site and click on the padlock icon in the address bar. Click Connect to find the link to display the certificate.
    • In certificate Chrome display, switch to the Certification Path tab, click on the cert you want to export and use the button view the certificate to open directly. (This isn't the site's certificate, but the certificate used by the proxy to sign certificates fake site.)
    • Click on the Details tab, and then click the Copy to file button. This will start the Export Wizard. Use the DER format and save to a convenient location.


    • In Firefox, open the Certificate Manager using the: button menu '3-bar' (or Tools menu) > Options > advanced > mini-onglet Certificates > "view certificates" button.
    • Click on mini - the References tab, then on the 'Import' button and find the DER file. Note: I suggest allowing the certificate for Web only, unless your IT suggests otherwise.

    I enclose a few screenshots for reference, obviously not with your actual proxy...

  • How to determine which application has focus in Windows

    Hello all-

    I'm trying to work around the "Labview freezes when there is big data in the Clipboard, known issue" ( and a thought is to try to determine if Labview has the focus, and if it then clears the Clipboard.  If Labview has focus, and then let the user use the Clipboard.  It would be a good work around, because it would let users paste the screenshots and notes files and would not risk a nasty Clipboard / menu / gel-crash.

    My initial search for determining windows application focus, came so empty.  This old thread (from 2005) covers pretty well:

    The "is more"property disobeys.»  I must determine if Labview has the focus, as opposed to Windows, Notepad, firefox, etc.  I also looked at command prompt commands and found nothing immediately useful here either.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you
