I spaced out the other night and shut off the power as my computer was shutting down.Everything else seems to be fine, but the minimize, tile, and close buttons in the upper right corner are enormous now. How do I make them smaller?
I have tried everything and exhausted my knowledge when it comes to hardware, my computer starting giving me random BSOD's, it only works in normal mode, and safe mode with networking for a short amount of time, but works perfectly fine in regular safe mode, I also let it sit in CMOS for about and hour without any reboot, I updated all my drivers which inherently has made things slightly worse (i.e BSOD's are more frequent) and it keeps spitting out different error codes the most recent one is the title and the only other one I can remember involved a "BAD_POOL_HEADER" or something along the lines of that? Also though I have manually backed up my data and have made Norton Ghost Images I would prefer not to reinstall unless someone knows how to restore just my files and programs but not the OS state. And I could not include a system health report as the Performance Logs & Alerts Service fails to run in safe mode but I have included my latest mini-dump files in the zip file attached.

Recently resolved for the second time however on an entirely different machine, an issue wherein Windows Update without any clues refuses to work -- the problem this time was fixed by uninstalling the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.The first time (again, on another machine altogether) it was fixed by installing the Intel Rapid Technology drivers.However now, I am unable to install the latter drivers (the installation throws a nebulous error message about my laptop (a Thinkpad T61p) being incompatible and exits).In other words -- I am unable to install both the Intel Matrix Storage Manager (which even is in the the "auto update software" driver list provided by my laptop manufacturer (Lenovo)) AND the Intel Rapid Technology software this time. will having none of these installed this have a notably negative impact on the performance of my system?
I have been at this for about 3-4 hours trying to decrease the boot time of my computer I was able to get it from 10 minutes down to 5-6.I biggest thing I noticed is the time between the Windows animated boot screen and the actually blue login screen just shows a black screen about about 2 minutes or so. Anything I can do to decrease this? Logs, etc?
This tutorial will show you how to increase or decrease the height of the Start Menu in Windows 7 without displaying recently opened programs and without displaying sub-menus. Many users would like to change the height of the Start Menu in Windows 7. There are many reasons for why a user would want this. My personal reason is so that all the programs in the All Programs list of the Start Menu will display without my having to scroll up and down the list. The problem is that the Start Menu is dynamic and, it would seem, cannot be manually sized. Two existing methods of changing the height of the Start Menu are to 1) display recently opened programs; and 2) display the sub-menus that appear on the right side of the Start Menu, such as Documents, Downloads, and Games. However, for those who would rather not display recently opened programs and not have some useless sub-menus displayed, a third, more flexible way exists, and this tutorial will cover that method.
I want to record Hedgewars, an open source 2D game. I discovered an open source alternative to fraps called Taksi. This seems like a very good option to use, but I cant play/record with it without encountering a significant amount of lag. The game itself though is virtually lagless. What is the best FPS rate/ settings for this, and is there anything else I can do to the computer to make it lag less?

I need a way of monitoring if performance cpu stuttering is going on. It seems like it is as in games the screen stutters when it was smooth before. How can I monitor this or check for this? What is causing this?
Whenever I redo my windows, the overall volume is greatly decreased and I mean with master volume of the windows maxed out. After a few days or weeks the volume gets back up where you can actually understand a songs lyrics.
There must be a simple keystroke or two that helps increase or decrease the font size of everything displayed on the computer, right? I am on the internet or other software programs and cannot access dropdown options etc. because the font size is too large.
I have a ACER D255 netbook with intel atom N550 (1.5ghz, 1mb L2 cache) 1gb DDR3 memory and 250 gb hdd. lately it has been a tad slow and freezing up will using google chrome. my task manager says right now that CPU usage is 4% but Memory is at 75%, sometimes up to 90%. it also says that i have 89 processes running.
I recently bought a new laptop and I installed Office 2007 on it (it had already been installed on other computers before). However, pressing Shift + Tab in Word doesn't decrease indent (It does so on PowerPoint). This does so on my other computers, and I assumed it was a default function in Word 2007. I tried to customize the keyboard shortcut for it, but Word wouldn't accept Tab as a suitable shortcut key (instead of registering Tab as part of the shortcut key combination, it performed the normal Tab function and went to the next gui object). Is there any way to fix this? I can live with it, since all I have to do is make a shortcut without Tab, or just simply click the respective buttons, but the Shift + Tab shortcut is ingrained in my memory and will be hard to unlearn, especially since any other computer I use with Word will use the default shortcut.
I have had my laptop for around a year now, and it's always been pretty fast for a cheapish laptop, It's an advent modena m100 in blue, but recently it has started getting real slow, like my CPU Usage is at 100% all the time and my Physical memory usage is running quite high aswell, without even having any programs open.
When I first boot up the machine and start using it (win 7 ultimate 64bit) the memory usage stays arround 40%. If I keep using it, the memory usage will slowly increase until it reaches 99%. If I boot up the machine and just leave it there for a couple of hours, the same happens.I try to restart (via windows), it logs off, shuts down the system, the coolers keep spinning, the motherboard lights are still on, but it doesn't boot up again. It remains like that. I have to restart via reset button or power button.
If I am surfing the net or looking up something on the net, my computer will almost come to a stop and get very very slow, when I go to the task manager, I find the CPU usage at 100% and just stays there. When I look at the processes there are several that are high (DWM.exe (20-23%, Taskmgr.exe, FireFox.exe
I am using windows 7 ( 64 bit ) my cpu usage is now 100 % and memory usage is almost near to 2 GB..I installed Avast months back.now i have newly installed Microsoft Security Essentials ..
1) when i try to uninstall Avast there is no uninstall option even in Add/Remove program it does not show up in list.
2) When i try to end process of Avast it shows me message ."Access Denied " although i am administrator and only single user
3) What i want just to keep my CPU Usage down ( almost 5 to 10 % Max )because i have not installed any thing to use CPU usage like 100 % I have visual 2008 with Sqlserver 2005 and office 2007, like these
My Audiodg.exe process is currently using 2,786,070 kB (not just normal bytes, kilobytes) of Ram. 2.66gb+ of Ram! I have searched the web as well as this site for any problems. My audio is working fine though... I have no idea why this using so much ram. Im guessing a memory leak of some kind... I restartand it starts off at a normal pace...
Ok so my computer is acting up , at first i thought it was a ram issue , but when i am only use 1 gb of ram ( i have 2 gb) my cpu usage goes to 100 then drops to 30 then back to 60 and so on , even on start up it goes to around 50% without anything opened. So i tick the show all process on my task manger and i see alot of svchost , more than 6 running, should i be worried, i heard some of them could be a virus and i also MsMpeng.exe running and it uses 50,000 usage, it uses more memory than google chrome. both svchost and MsMpeng.exe worries me , iknow svchost is safe but it also good be a virus.
My Windows 7 laptop has recently been through about a half-dozen supposed "fixes" to malware and registry repairs. It is still running high CPU cycles. How can I fix it (preferably without paying for anything)? I have AVG and will purchase their PC TuneUp when I get a chance, and I just bought SpeedyPC earlier tonight.So, I don't want to spend more money. I have tried Spybot, Malwarebytes, and another one (can't remember).
A month or so ago my computer was fine. Gradually, slowly RAM usage has been going up. I used to be able to run multiple aps at once, no problem. Computer has gradually slowed more and more. Can't run more than a couple aps at once without it slowing to the point it is useless. At start up with no aps launched RAM usage is 83+%. What is going on now that was not a couple months ago? I have poked around in Task Manager but do not really understand what I am seeing there. Windows 7. I updated to IE 9. I have Norton Internet Security. I have run Malwarebytes, Smart Defrag 2 and Advanced SystemCare 4.
Whenever I am on my computer My RAM usage is really high. More than I think I could ever use up! When I am not on an App/ Browser my RAM Usage is still above 50-60%. I also think my internet connection has something to do with it because when ever I try to load a video/website it takes more than 10minutes to load a 30 second video!
