Scheduled tasks delayed in W2008 SP2 by Verky
Hi, I have some scheduled tasks in my W2008 server SP2. Last day, two of them started half hour late. I don't find any log that tells me why windows didn't start these tasks at the right time. I've found this bug in Windows 2008 SP2 Task Scheduler (http:// support.microsoft.com/kb/982341/en-us?fr=1) but I don't have any delayed task checked.

regedit by dido22
hello, I am in serious danger of having to make a minor change to the registry, and am a bit nervous. I know that there is 'regedit' and I know how to start it. I will read some on-line articles 1st. Are there any 3rd-party progs which might be safer / easier to use ? Thanks

Vista Defragmenter and ReadyBoost drive by Derek
Hi, I noticed something funny on my laptop last night. I have a 2GB SD card which I use for Vista Readboost. My laptop is scheduled to perform the Vista Defragmenter at 22:00 each Sunday. At exactly that time, the light for the SD card started flashing a whole bunch. To me, this appears like the defragmenter had kicked-in and was trying to

Disabling write caching for eSATA drives? by Russell
I'm using eSATA drives store images (I'm a photographer) and swap drives according to client. I'm running Vista64 with lots of RAM. Problem is that the file transfer progress bar will show that data transfer is complete when in reality it's still being transferred from the cache to the target drive. If I remove the drive I risk interrupting the transfer and get corrupted files. I currently...

USB error message by Ret.[_2_]
I keep getting a window popping up on my Vista laptop telling me that "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognise it." If I click on the window for more information I get another window stating that "The location of the device is shown in bold type". There is then a tree headed 'USB Root Hub (6 ports) and the 'problem' port is number...

PC Goes Of For No Obvious Reason And Then.. by El.Plates
I have Vista Home Premium which inadvertently switches itself off and I have to go through about 7 or 8 manual boots under 'choose repair option' which repairs a little, switches off, I reboot, it repairs a little further, switches off and so on until I get to 'will start up at a point. Any ideas as to why this maybe ? The PC has Norton 360 on it... TIA

Server's SSL certificate was rejected for the following reason: by [email protected]
Certificate Error: Cert Chain not trusted. Do you want to trust this certificate in future sessions? Then, there's a page or so of data which is indecipherable to me. I've seen this a few times and it always comes up under all my other open windows. Does anyone know what it is and what I should do about it?

Taskbar doesn't always hide by [email protected]
Frequently, my Taskbar ceases to hide. I think it might have something to do with open apps needing attention but I can't prove this and I'm not even sure it's true. I am using Windows 7 now - BUT I have had this same problem with Vista, XP Pro and OS's before that. It's only now that I'm searching for a fix (guess I was very lazy - sorry!!!). Can anyone help me? The only thing I've been...

OS on a logical drive by itself? by [email protected]
I've often heard that the OS should be on a drive (logical drive) by itself so that, when it gets a problem, you can just re-install a new copy of the OS on that drive. However, isn't the OS modified when you install programs? Where would you install them? Can someone explain the procedure for this and how it works? It has always confused me and, if if works as I understand, I'd like to try...

Lost Performance Score by brbrown
When I first had my Vista Home Premium laptop, I was able to access Performance Information Tools via the Control Panel and the page would show the "Rate and improve your computers performance" at the top with the performance details and score below together with the "Update my score" button at the bottom. Suddenly, all the performance details and score, together with the "Update my score"...

Can't open files by John[_72_]
A friend left a garbled message on my telephone answering machine asking me for help but I don't use Vista or iTunes, so I'm hoping some kind soul on here can help. Basically any file he downloads (it may be a photo of his grandson sent as an email attachment in jpg format, or a program such as skype.exe, or a pdf document) cannot be opened. When double-clicked, any downloaded file opens up...
