  1. Hello, I have Windows 10 on my Dell laptop computer. Sometimes when I click on a folder to open it, it opens half size. Of course when I click on the maximize icon on the top right, the folder increases to full size. But I was wondering how I can make my folders always open to full size. Thank you
  2. Hello, I have a HP Pro Book 6555b computer. A AMD TURION II N530 Dual Core Processor 2.50GHZ 32 bit OS I have 89GB free of 232GB on my hard drive. I haven't had a chance to download winpatrol.com yet. I did run CHKDSK and DEFRAG and it does seem to help somewhat. Thanks for all of the information!
  3. Hello, I run Windows 7 on my HP laptop. My computer used to run rather fast, but now it runs really slow. A blue light comes on indicating that something is going on in the background. I just ran SFC /scannow in the command prompt as Administrator, but it found no errors. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why my laptop is running so slow? Thank you
  4. Hello, I run Windows 7 on my laptop. I was just wondering, is it possbile to reload Windows from my disc without losing all of my data and files? Thank you
  5. I followed your suggestion and ran sfc /scannow but I still have the problem. But thank you for asking.
  6. Hello, I am running Windows 7 on my laptop computer. The background color on my desktop is black. I right clicked on my desktop changed the background color to blue and saved the changes. But when I restart my computer, the background color returns to black. I have done this several times. How can I permanently change my background color to blue? Thank you
  7. Hello, I run Windows 7 on my HP laptop. I guess that I must have accidentally clicked a setting with my mouse or something. Normally when I open a folder, it opens to 100% screen size. But now when I open a folder, for some reason it only opens to about 75% screen size. Is there some way that I can correct this and get my folders to go back to opening 100% screen size? Thank you
  8. Well, if they retired Picasa, have they come up with anything better?
  9. Thanks for the info Bonzai Soup, I will download Gimp. BTW, when I took a closer look at the previous files that Picasa did scan I noticed that they were all jpeg. And when I looked at the files that Picasa would not scan, they were all png. So I converted the png files to jpeg and guess what? Now Picasa scans all of my files.
  10. Hello, Google's Picasa photo enhancer has a "Fill Light" tool that I really love. But lately Picasa won't scan my new photos. Is anyone aware of another free photo enhancer that has a similar Fill Light tool? Thanks
  11. Irene, Thank you so much! My volume icon is back up and working.
  12. Hello, I am running Windows Vista on my HP laptop. My sound volume icon has disappeard from my row of icons on the bottom right of my screen. The icon is not among the hidden icons. I must have clicked on something by mistake and the icon was removed. Is there any way to get it back? Thanks.
  13. Thanks Belatucadrus, originally I was having problems getting my PC to start up, it would just stall. But it seems to be working OK now. Thanks!
  14. Thank you for the post Pops. I will definitely follow your advice. Would you mind giving us an example of how one could junk their box if they are not careful? Thanks!
  15. Thanks POPS, I do have CCleaner and I will take a look at "Aanalyze" mode. I had heard that if you are watch a video on the Net, say a news video, that the video is at least temporarily downloaded to a temp file. And that if you wanted to save that video, you could just save the temp file to your hard drive. Is that correct? Thanks!
