Your favourite programs for Windows (one for Martyn,Brian,BMSteve,Brindabella :)
Permalink  
 


Hello to all you TT-R250 & TTR-250 (for the older models) fans out there smile

 I kinda figured we have some geeks on this site that we all could learn from. I am no computer teq but i do know the basics. Where i need help is for example: Converting xps files to jpeg. What program do you use (if your a bit geeky)? I have done this in the past but cannot seem to find a suitable program for this now.

Also if everyone can pitch in & tell me what programs are your favourite. Any program that may be usefull that is free or doe'snt cost much & worth paying for.

For example my favourite programs are CcleanerYoutubeconverterRevo for my Contour cam Storyteller , Norton websafe 

When i remember more i will upload them.

 

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Disclaimer: The programs i use may or may not be safe for you to download. I have tried & tested all programs with no trouble but that's not to say you won't end up with porn pop up on your main screen & groaning noises as it starts up hahaha (seen worse on a mates computer :)

.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

Your favourite command prompts would be helpfull also. Here are mine...

 

For flushing the cr@p out of your internet connection....

.................................................................................................................................

C:USERS\COMP NAME> Command: ipconfig /flushdns 

Very good one

 ........................................................................................................................................

 

 

 

In elevated mode for Windows 7


This is to fix errors on the selected disk

..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Sources\X: Command: CHKDSK /F

............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................


This is to zero the configuration of the selected disk.

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

   Sources\X:> Command: diskpart  ......... On computer ##### C:\USERS\COMP NAME\DISKPART> Command: select disk 0  .......... disk 0 is now the selected disk. DISKPART> Command: clean all

Doing that you will lose everything but will be a clean install. I only use that before reinstalling windows to make sure alls well.

......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

 To make a recovery partition in Windows 7:

Boot from Window 7 disk....

At the language screen press shift+F10

Go to diskpart: Command: diskpart

Now that your in diskpart.....

  1. list disk
  2. select disk 0
  3. select partition 1
  4. delete partition 1
  5. select partiton 2
  6. delete partition 2
  7. list partition
  8. create partition primary size=4096
  9. create partition primary
  10. list volume
  11. select volume 0
  12. assign letter=f
  13. select disk 0
  14. list partition
  15. select partition 2
  16. format fs=ntfs quick  (use the ''quick'' only if you think that the disk is okay)
  17. assign letter=c
  18. select partition 1
  19. format fs=ntfs quick label=recovery
  20. assign letter=d
  21. active
  22. exit

Leaving diskpart.....

X:\sources:

  1. xcopy f: d: /h/i/s

Wait..........

870 files copied

X:sources:

  1. f:
  2. cd/boot
  3. bootsect.exe /nt60 d:
  4. exit

Take cd out.....reboot........boot  from cd.......& install on partition C as usual. (not on the volume labeled recovery )

To access this after windows is installed press F8 or F12 on start up.

...................................

 

Jarrah.

Allway Synch.jpg

Allway Sync is such an easy (and fast) way to take back ups that I find that I do actually back up my files regularly to an external hard disc drive biggrin
