What's changing the archive attributes? by Bill Bonnet
I am becoming frustrated. I have over 800 personal files on my PC, some of which are updated nearly every day, about 10 on average. Each day I run an Incremental Backup (Roxio's Backup MyPC). I now find that on some days most of the files on Drive 'C' have had the "File is ready for archiving" attribute set 'ON', the letter 'A' is displayed. This means that my incremental Backup covers over 800...

OS is too fast. by alfonz1
Hello. This is not a joke:)In normal circumstances i would be happy,but in my case the whole os is insanelly speeded up.The minute in system clocks is like 4 seconds in normal time. The video and music playbacks are also speeded up,so video goes speeded like when the fastforwarding option were selected which surelly isnt. The text editor pointer is flashing maybe even 10 times faster...

UAC Prompt Very slow to display by sf322
Hi, I have been having this problem for a number of weeks, and it started about the second day after installing Vista. My UAC prompt takes between 10 and 15 seconds to display. I have turned off the change to secure desktop, but it made no difference. I have also noticed (I do not know if this is connected) that when I want to preview an image it takes the same amount of time for the viewer to...

Slow Reads on HD in Vista by [email protected]
I haven't been able to find a post that describes my problem, and it's a strange one. I've got a problem with disk READS on one of my hard drives in Vista. It popped up seemingly out of nowhere. My system drive is on a separate hard drive and it seems unaffected. My D: drive (data drive) is where the problem lies. Folder-to-folder copies are taking about 4 minutes for a 700 MB file.

My screen saver doesn't work, I didn't do anything to prompt it to not work, I do not use any mouse other than my touch pad. I use Windows Vista Home Premium on a Dell Laptop. I have tried to read other people's posts and either can't understand them or they don't apply to me. I can't even preview the screen savers. Please help. Thanks!

Poor Performance With 4GB Memory by Akumajou
I recently added 2GB of memory to my P4P800 for a total of 4GB, and immediately began experiencing visible performance problems most noticeably in games. After much troubleshooting, I discovered that setting Maximum Memory in System Configuration (msconfig.exe) to 3300MB (I didn't test every 1MB below the limit, by the way), down from the limit of 3328 (using 1 or 2MB less than this still...

Vista x64 RAM usage? by Anfy
Hi all, I am new to this forum, so bare with me if this has already been discussed... When I first start my computer (Vista Ultimate x64), on 4GB of RAM, the system uses about ~36%. This gradually increases to ~40% later on. The problem is, when I leave the computer on for extended periods of time (a few days), this "idle" RAM usage goes up dramatically, to 60+ and sometimes 70+ %, with VERY...

Sound Problems. by Concern1
I just recently upgraded my computer to an HP, model M8400f, running Windows Vista Home premium. Since I bought my computer I discovered a little annoying quirk: I often don't get sound when I connect my headphones to the jack on the front of the computer. This is not my 1st computer, and, of course, I made sure it was not on mute, I clicked on the icon for sound and toggle to its highest...
