Slow booting - where to look? by Jason[_21_]
I recently replace a failing hard drive in an HP laptop. I had good partition image backups, so I restored the system to the new drive and all was well. ...except that now the system takes far longer to quiet down when it boots before I can do anything with it. I have updated everything - the new drive is the same brand as the old one, but a newer model so there were some driver updates, but...

Absurd alledged disk writes when running backup by Lieutenant Scott
I wanted to see how fast I was backing up to my USB portable drive using EaseUs backup, so I looked in the task manager, see: http://www.hucker.plus.com/temp/backup.jpg It appears to have written 2.6TB in a few minutes. I know it hasn't, it's only a 500GB drive. It claims to be writing about 10GB per second which would finish the backup in 50 seconds, but it takes a few hours. Any ideas...

Vista won't shutdown by Otis
I have windows vista home premium edition. Recently, and I am guessing after an update that was automatically downloaded, I can no longer shutdown without manually shutting it down. When I click the icon to shutdown it goes to the screen that says windows is shutting down but never does, even after several hours. I haven't added any drivers or peripherals. Any ideas?

Workarounds for viewing FF on an extra large monitor by Mint
My son-in-law is a gamer and he is using Vista with a large monitor. I can't view an open FF window properly without sitting back about 10 feet. :-) Is there a way to get a full size open window to be a proportion of the screen size? I hope that made sense.

computer freeze by justenuff
So, my computer w/ Vista (came loaded) has froze up 13 times in the past three days that I have had it. I'm not using it for games, just several, regular applications. When it freezes, I can't ctrl+alt+del to get the taskbar. The mouse also freezes, so I can't get to the taskbar to activate task manager either. I think I ran across something that concerns a Windows auto repair problems...
