But where did I store that serial ??
Did I keep the email containing it ? Where’s the original package? Where’s the Cover of which I’m sure I wrote it down on? Do I have every single serial I need before deleting everything ??

Hardware is by far the ugliest part of a computer because information on this subject is obscure and difficult to find.
For example, imagine you need to know what kind of RAM is installed or whether or not you have free slots on your motherboard: you’ll have a hard time finding an upgrade. You need a free slot to install new RAM, and you may need to use the same type of RAM on all slots.
Windows has an information tool, to see it press WinKey + R, type msinfo32.exe and press Enter. But the information is not exactly what you are looking for.
The device manager also has a lot of good information but sometimes you may need something more sophisticated.
A few weeks back you got to read about a small utility that allows you to lock your keyboard and mouse when leaving your computer on (Read here). And a while back, I told you about Predator which allows you to lock your Computer using a USB Flash Drive (Read Here). This time I\’m bringing you a way to lock single applications, so that you can leave your computer on for others to use, and at the same time protect running applications from tampering or accidental shut-down.
We have all come to expect our computers to be sluggish or unresponsive at times, for no apparent reason. Sometimes it’s because Windows is set to load tons of unneccessary drivers at boot up, other times it’s an outdated driver or some applications you weren’t aware of was running. And sometimes it’s your expensive valid software that’s taking all your resources.
Unless you’re a real techie… looking at the Task Manager isn’t going to do you any good. so why not try something new ?
