  • Having a problem with Windows Live Mail lock up shortly after the start.

    Having a problem with Windows Live Mail lock up shortly after the start. When I start the Task Manager to end the process, it sometimes freezes and the only way to solve the problem is to disconnect which forces the profile to close. Assuming a corrupted profile, I followed the instructions of Windows support to fix a corrupted profile and copied all the files except ntuser.*. When I try to paste them into the new user profile (all profiles are admins), I get the error message asking if I want to leave to proceed. When I click on continue, all THE files in the profile block "corrupt" to the new one, including ntuser.*, that I was not choosing. Why? If the files are rewritten empty? Tried 3 times, same result. Please notify.

    I think I found it! I went in the Windows Live Forum and found a thread that looked like my problem. He suggested going to msconfig and take off Live Mail list start. I couldn't find it on the list, but the top element was "" default EXE"something of an unknown manufacturer. I took it out of the startup list, and Live Mail works again! Thanks for your help!

  • I am having some problems with Windows 8 randomlly slow operation.

    So the other day I was looking through internet and suddenly my computuer has been very slow, almost like the FPS lag in games. When I turn it on and it works normal for a little while then becomes slow. I tried a lot of things like CCleaner, Defrag, Malwarebytes, for turning on and off and some commands cmd, but I can't remember which. Can someone help me with this problem.

    The problem with cleaning products, is that you are 100% guarantee that your computer will be slower after use.

    Here's why: your computer has cached information it needs (creates a temporary copy).  When you use a product cleaning, you delete the cache (temporary files) and it has rebuilt their brand new from scratch - which is slow (it's why he tried to cache if it didn't build them!) and your computer to get slower and slower, causes each time that 'clean you '.

    I'll stop run the cleaners and stop all the caches of compensation.  You need people.

    The real cause of a slow computer, he is busy running a process (like reconstruction of a cache that you have deleted or deactivated).  Or it could be another process which is busy.  So to remedy this:

    1. Press Ctrl-SHIFT-ESC to display the Task Manager.
    2. Disable everything under the Startup tab, then restart
    3. Leave the computer and idle for a little while if it can end all caching for the indexes, superfetch and more.  You can use it during this time also, but it will end sooner if she is not alone.

    Then, if the slowness is returned, follow these steps:

    1. Press Ctrl-Shift-Escape again and look at the first tab.  Find something that uses a lot of CPU resources.  Programs that use the most CPU are programs causing the slowness.  Now, you know what programs are causing the problem, and you can quit the program, turn it off or do other things to speed up the return.

    At the time current Windows 7 in any version is not supported by Apple on the Boot Camp partition, nor is it supported in any way under Fusion.

    Although it is not supported, it will work however it depends what Guest select you when the virtual machine based on the creation of a regular file.  I don't got no problem using Windows Server 2008, when the virtual machine based on the creation of a regular file.

    On your Boot Camp partition was a clean build or you have an existing Boot Camp partition previously Virtual Machine.  If you had a Boot Camp existing partition previously Virtual Machine then try the following.


    Note: These senses are different which have already been posted so read and follow through... Note: These steps assume that you have a single Apple to default installation of Windows on a single Boot Camp partition and Boot Camp of VMware Fusion single default partition Machine virtual (without a snapshot *) and if you have changed the partition Boot Camp Virtual Machine to add additional hard disks to be virtual or RAW disk then do not use these instructions unless you backup the Boot Camp partition the Machine package virtual first. * Also note that Fusion 2.0.0 may accidentally have a snapshot with the virtual partition Boot Camp Machine and it should not have, then you should check to ensure that the condition does not exist as well. (With merger closed if the partition Boot Camp Virtual Machine package is over 1 MB in size, then you might have a snapshot in place and do not continue with these instructions.)


    1. If the merger is open, close it.

    2. in a Terminal (/ Applications/Utilities/Terminal) copy and paste command, as the following and then press Enter and it will delete the partition Boot Camp Virtual Machine of the metadata and the Virtual Machine to help.

    Note: This does not affect the Boot Camp partition install windows in that it does not remove it.  Also be sure you copy all the command line below, as well as, "RM" at the beginning of the ' (quote) after the s in the Machines. "

    RM - dfr "/Users/$ the specified item was not found./Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Helper/naos-1.0.vmwarevm/vmware.log ' ~/Desktop/Helper_vmware.log


    I tried implementing VMWare using Vista and Windows Server 2008, 1280 MB RAM and 3D on and outside.  Any ideas?

    VMware is a company so I doubt that you have implemented the company however, your statement is a bit ambiguous because it is not clear if your always talk your partition Boot Camp Machine virtual matter in Fusion, you tried to select each of them as an OS on the entrance of Boot Camp partition on the Virtual Machine library and it didn't help the Boot Camp Virtual Machine partition number or to be issues with creating virtual machines with these operating systems.
