  • I updated my drivers and now my computer runs very slowly. How to solve the problem?

    I've recently updated my Intel graphics driver and my drivers Nvidia because they were terribly outdated. As a result, I am able to run some games that I couldn't run before, but my computer became very slow. Now, the startup time is significantly slower, and the worst part is that the actual performance of the system is slower. I checked in the Task Manager, and my physical memory constantly rotates between 40 and 60% (I have 8 GB of RAM, Windows 7) without any game or program being open, except the web browser and Skype.

    What is perhaps the reason for this problem? Is certainly the problem in the drivers? How to solve the problem?

    "My graphics card is GEFORCE GTX 660 M. Is it compatible with the latest driver? »

    Ah! A laptop computer. With laptops, it is generally better to download the driver from the mfg, not Nvidia.

    This is because the computer laptop mfg bring changes that can make the improper generic Nvidia driver.

    and while I always count should not slow down the system... You never know.

    "What services I need to run.

    Just to keep the correct terminology-

    Services is the area where you stopped the service of bitlocker.

    The start is where you keep things from loading when you start in Windows.

    -Most of the time what's in Startup deactivation is something personal need, but there are some things that

    I must be on the left.

    I leave the Intel common user interfaceand Installshield update service, mainly because I don't bother

    Discover what they are doing.

    I also let anti-virus, Realtek audio, software profile keyboard and a few other things active.

    I don't have Adobe Flash loading with Windows, but I don't use it a lot, and when I do the software that

    uses it it launches automatically.

    The bottom line here is that if you have software that you use all the time, it is more convenient to have it start with


    -Concerning the Services. This also has to do with personal preferences to a certain extent, but most things can be left alone.

    I do not use the Services tab in the Configuration of the system, because I think it's only a one time adjustment.

    (Clean boot, linked earlier, is the best tool for the verification of conflicts with Services)

    To stop or disable a Service manually, tap - services.msc - in the run command to open

    the main window of Services.

    There is an Adobe Flash update in Services that should be kept, but when Adobe makes an update

    I select the option notify me, but not to install it automatically.

    I always preferred this with any updates, including Windows updates as there is less chance of a corrupt

    Update If you're aware, it happens and do not do something intensive system while the update is being installed, particularly when an update requires a restart to complete.

    -Registry. In the control run, type - regedit - and browse the registry with the file path in the

    previous post and follow the instructions. You can save the key you are modify if you wish, that the use of the

    backup to change the value to what is current would be faster than navigating to the key again.

    -When playing around with things you are not familiar with creating a System Restore point before you

    making these changes is a good insurance policy.

    If you don't know how to create a system restore point - time to do some research.

    In fact, all of the above is covered by tons of tutorials out there in the www.

    SSD vs HDD - the specifications of the system for you the machine should be in your user manual or on the

    MFG web site.

    Prefetch is useful with HARD drive, because it improves performance somewhat, but read-ahead is not really necessary with SSD.

    and can reduce the life expectancy SSD a bit (there is debate on gravity)

    More research for more details. D

    -If you use a HARD disk and that you have enabled Prefetch, the Prefetch will be rebuilt over time, if you delete the files.

    -Here's another tip for when you are not sure of the impact of deleting files.

    Rename file/folder. You can do something like add another couple of P to the front, or a 1a which will move

    the file to the top of the window. If nothing is wrong in the next few days, you can delete the folder.

    This method protects to empty the trash accidentally and lose the file/folder.

    -Speaking of deleting the file. A great TEMP folder can slow things way down.

    Run Windows, Disk Cleanup . This will remove many files in the Temp folder.

    Or, for a full, clean, go to the - your User\AppData\Local\Temp

    Open the Temp folder and delete anything that can be deleted (impossible to delete the files that are used).

  • Where can I find documentation on how to get the VCS - C and VCS-E to Exchange presence information

    I turned presence on my VCS - C and VCS-E, but depending on whether I am VPNed or not, I don't see the State of the presence of my side of the firewall.

    I checked for x7.1 Administrator's guide, I looked in the guide of authentication devices, and I'm at a bit of a loss.

    Is what I'm trying to do as possible, and if so, what do I have to do to make this work?

    I have a pretty simple setup - that works very well, could give you some ideas;

    Two VCS - Independent C (soon to be clustered) and a VCS-E;

    all internal clients of the JabberVideo register with a VCS - C, and when external registers with the VCS-E (all of my users of Singapore recorded with the VCS-E).

    Authentication is directly with AD and is made on the a WHAT VCS - C regardless of the user is registered with the VCS - C or the VCS-E.

    PUA and presence disabled on VCS-E and activated on the VCS - C, which is used as SIP registrar.

    Authentication on VCS - e:

    Default subfield "do not check".

    Default zone "do not check".

    Traversal server box "do not check".

    Authentication on VCS - C:

    Default subfield "audit powers.

    MOVI area 'audit powers.

    Point final SIP registration box "treat as authenticated.

    Course customer area 'audit powers.

    Authentication works well, the users cannot sign up for the VCS-E with the wrong password or user name, and presence works well too - both inside and outside.

  • HELP: I was told to uninstall my photoshop cs2 and now I can not reinstall it - also cannot access my adobe account and it is the United States no. CS plus.

    Told me to uninstall my photoshop cs2. My macbook pro went repair and I had to restore from a backup, after which I got this error message when you try to use photoshop: a license for this product has stopped working: restart the computer and try new blah blah blah error code 150:30. I uninstalled stupidily program on the advice of someone in adobe CS in India and now I can't reinstall. Can someone help me please? I am not interested in buying a newer versioin of adobe cs photoshop or cloud or none of this. I'm pretty happy with it, I just want to come on my laptop. I also run on my desktop computer. Also, I couldn't access my original account due to be told that I had to change my password. An e-mail was sent to the e-mail address associated with this account, but I have more access to this email. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH ADOBE AND THEIR SUPPORT MOSHE. We spend hundreds and it's the support that we receive?

    I oringinalyspent about $4-500 on this program and I would like someone to tell me how to get this back up and works without licensing issues and spend thousands more please. Agent original CS, I spoke with after waiting on hold for more than 1/2 hour was immediately rude to me and told me that I was tyring to understand something, when in reality he was not listening to a word I said to my questions. I am more disappointed, I'm DISGUSTED. I really wish I had not uninstalled it because I fear now, as I suspected, that I will never be able to get it back and I will be FORCED to spend more money. This is ridiculous. I wish I never sent my laptop for repair. I took them several days to understand this bulb and some cables have been damaged, and there is no real reason to wipe my computer everything. I wouldn't have to deal with all of this if I didn't have and that the original problem is still there, when I opened the laptop, screen out draft and it takes a minute or two to start the operation, but it is another matter.

    I tried to access the chat 24 hours again, but that doesn't work more or the other.

    Can someone help me please? Thank you!
