As the experienced Windows user you are, you are familiar with the Computer view (previously known as ‘My Computer’). This folder contains the (physical or virtual) drives connected to your computer. But that is not all it is capable of displaying.
Should you ever want to customize the content of the Computer Folder, then this is how:
We have all done it, from time to time; accidentally deleted a file we thought we didn’t need, or a file that ended up as collateral damage in a file deleting frenzy. The good news when you delete a file is that it is not actually lost forever, it’s just marked as “over-write-able”. And even if Windows should happen to overwrite your file it may be recovered.
There are literally hundreds of programs out there, promising to UNdelete or recover your lost files, some of which actually work. Usually its the ones you have to buy that gets it right. There is however a free option if you are using Windows 7 (and Vista).

A common problem for many Outlook users is that new emails seem to be stuck in the outbox. To get the emails sent, you then have to press Send/Receive (F9) button. Most users (me included) prefer to have the emails delivered as soon as we press Send, not collect them and send all later on.
Here are some things to try if your sent mail is getting stuck in the outbox (depending on our Outlook version, these may vary):
Some readers that tried to set up their computer as a Wireless Hotspot reported that the service fails when rebooting the computer. Some reported to get an error saying something like “The hosted network could not be started”.
This error may also occur in applications using Microsoft’s Virtual Wi-Fi technology on a Windows 7 machine.
Hopefully we can now deliver the solution…
Microsoft recently released a rather interesting beta the other day, called: Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Tool. This is a tool designed to rescue and fix computers that cannot boot into windows. These days, many viruses, malware and what not target the boot sector of your hard drive, rendering the computer unbootable. And in many cases also unfixable to the windows Startup Repair Tool found on the Setup disk.

Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Tool
Have you ever thought about how fast things in the world of technique are developing ? It’s not that long a go that cell phones had a shoulder strap, and TV’s was as thick as it was wide. I remember when the first “flat screens” came on the market. A “Flat Screen” back then ment that the tube had a flat front, no distorting curves. And let’s not forget about storage space. My first hard drive was a staggering 40MB!! And then a while later I got one with 80MB capacity. I thought, MAN, I’m never gonna be able to fill that… yeah right
A while back I was wandering down the memory lane, talking about RAM (Read it here). This time I thought I’d talk about storage space.
