Will using the Comet plc ruin my laptop media because they have been deemed counterfit?

Original title: the so-called knockoffs of windows Comet plc, if used will save this prog disk ruin my laptop / pc, because they have been deemed counterfit?

With the news that Comet save copies of discs are supposed to be/false Testament disk spoil my pc/laptop should ever need to restore.

The recovery disks that Comet sold appear to be copies of the recovery disks from the manufacturers that have created you yourself. In this case, they should not cause a problem. You can create your own recovery discs if you make yourself when you configure the PC and you have doubts.

The problem is not so much that these discs are fake but that MIcrosoft argues that their production on behalf of customers and charge for them, copyright violations.

  • We have an oem vista and you have purchased an upgrade to windows 7. This will improve the vista or it won't work, because we have an oem version?

    We have vista oem

    Bought a pack of upgrade
    Worried it does not level as we have oem
    Will I buy a new oem version of windows 7?

    All editions of Windows Vista are eligible for licenses for the Windows 7 upgrade, there are a few flats according to the architecture and edition of Vista you are running and which edition of Windows 7 and you intend to move to the architecture.

    When important changes to your computer, for example an upgrade, it is always recommended that you back up your system before installing a new version of Windows. In your case, you can upgrade to Windows 7 depending on the edition and the architecture of Windows Vista, you have installed. If you are running a 32-bit version of Vista and upgrade to a 64-bit (Windows 7 edition) version, you'll have a pure make install, it is the opposite case.

    If you are using Windows Vista Home Basic or Premium consumer editions, you can only upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate. In addition, you can make downgrades, which means, if you are running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition now, you cannot downgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. You perform logical upgrades:

    Windows Vista Home Basic > Windows 7 Home Basic, Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Edition Home Premium > Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Professional, enterprise or ultimate edition

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Enterprise

    Windows Vista Ultimate > Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Hi Jer9009,

    Welcome to the Microsoft answers site.

    ·         Could you give the exact error code or error number you get?

    To connect multiple computers, install a network adapter in each and run a network CAT5 cabling to connect each one to a hub (and thus the other.) The computer that will serve as a transition will have a standard network card for wired and a wireless network adapter that will connect to the wireless (WAP) access point or gateway on the second network.

    A network bridge is software or hardware that connects two networks or more so that they can communicate. You can create only a single bridge network on a computer, but a bridge can handle any number of network connections.

    Hi eriko25354860, hans

    I'm sorry, but Acrobat 7 is quite an old version and no more Adobe supports the same.

    Also, for Acrobat 7 activation server may not be available.

  • Ray-Tracing on GPUS requires a graphics NVIDIA and CUDA 5.0 or later approved. For now, the ray-tracing will use the CPU.

    I just got my Macbook Pro w / retina delivered today 15 ".

    I installed CC After Effects and received this warning message:

    Ray-Tracing on GPUS requires a graphics NVIDIA and CUDA 5.0 or later approved.

    For now, the ray-tracing will use the CPU.

    After installing CUDA 5.0 or later, restart your computer.

    My mac spec is:

    Processor: 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7

    Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB

    -

    I have absolutely no idea what the implications are for the AMD graphics card instead of the NVIDIA one card, no one knows what effect this will have on my mac when you use CC After Effects? I've never had this warning on my iMac 21.5 "...

    Is there something I can do?

    Thank you very much, Harry.

    The only thing THAT AE really use the GPU is obsolete ray-traced rendering engine. Very few people use the ray-traced rendering engine. I wouldn't worry about this at all.

    More info here: features GPU (CUDA, OpenGL) in After Effects and here: http://motionworks.net/after-effects-3d-future/

    Now, some third-party plugins (like element, 3D Invigorator, transmutation, etc..) Make use of the GPU, but they will work with the AMD cards and have nothing to do with this warning of CUDA, you want to come. Check that the requirements for all you plan to buy.

    You can confidently check the option do not show this message.

  • Installed windows 7 and windows live mail. now I want to import my messages from windows mail, and they will not matter. I really need the messages because they have a lot of important information in them.

    Would be really happy for any help.  The application tells me that they have been moved to the storage area, but they are not there.

    Help.

    Is your username mentioned in the tab security for storage files and all subfolders, and has 'full control '?

    If these files are really empty then the transfer/import routine failed for some unknown (to me) reason.

    Have you tried to copy all old messages from the Windows.old folder, put in a file in your user name for example Documents and then import from there?   It is perhaps necessary to remove to another location in the current storage folder in Windows Live Mail rather than simply delete before rerunning the import program.

    Have you tried to temporarily disable your anti program virus and other security programs to see if that blocks emails appear?

    Try running ChkDsk to check your drive for errors. Right click on your drive icon / properties / tools / error checking.  First try checking not be (read-only) to see if it reports any problems file or hard drive.  If this is the case, start by checking the two boxes, in no other rerun.

  • I can't stream videos until they are fully buffered, or see files download/download/in my records, until they have been completely downloaded so in the background, why is this?

    A week ago, I could not start the viewing of videos until they had been fully in memory buffer or files downloaded / see them being downloaded until they had been fully downloaded in the background somehow. I know that this is not a problem with my internet because I tried watching a video and download on my phone and Tablet and they had no problem instantly streaming videos while they have been buffered.
