Selecting start-computer-properties, I get a System rating of 3.6
What is that and what does it mean?

On wopr's front page, it says check out new "w3t" Lounge and I see the cgi-bin directory is named w3t so... what does it stand for?

This may sound trivial to some folks because I know it's been written many times that the OS and Data should be kept separate from each other. But what does this really mean? I'm building a new system and I want to do just that with a new Windows 7 install. I have separate physical drives and I'd like to install Windows 7 on one and data on the other. That being said what are the OS components and what makes up the data? I know that I should install Windows 7 on one drive and data such as pictures, music and documents on the other drive. What if I install Turbo Tax or other applications that have both an application and data component. Do I install the application on the same drive as the operating system and point the data storage to the other drive or do I install Turbo Tax totally on the separate drive? I guess this is my basic question. How do I install an application if I want to keep data separate from the OS. Would this also hold true for Utility Applications such as Nero or Photoshop Elemements. Is it possible to totally keep data separate from the OS? Thanks for any help.

There is this one newspaper site I read every day and recently I am getting the following pop-up warning..
What does it mean ???

Thanks guys...

This week on What The Tech: Paul Thurrott checks in from the Microsoft Build Conference. Paul shows off the first Windows 8 tablet from Samsung. Is it going to be an iPad killer? If so, what does it mean for Android tablets? Andrew and Paul also discuss Skydrive integration in Windows. Andrew asks Paul about how the Metro UI will work for power users that may not need, nor want the interface. And when can we expect to see Windows 8 launch to the public?

Windows 8 was the revolution that wasnít. But donít count Microsoft out just yet. In a lot of ways, the boring, button-down software giant was just a little ahead of its time.

I have a statement in the afterupdate property that says

Private Sub Searchbox_AfterUpdate()
End Sub

My intention is to force a subform (which displays search results in a datasheet) to requery in order to display search results based on value of Searchbox. I get a msg saying Access cannot find the form "PROSPECT_LOOKUP" referenced in VB code.

I KNOW it is spelled correctly so what am I missing? the form Prospect_Lookup is a subform of Form_Query_input, The serchbox is an unbound textbox control.

When showing a userform, I received the message below. Anybody have an idea as to what it means?

(rant on)

Recently I was in the OpenOffice word processing program and saved a file. It saved to this location automatically:
C:UsersGeneAppDataRoamingOpenOffice.org3use rgallery by default.

Later I wanted to find this file and used the search function built into Win7. No problem.

My question is this. Why on earth is a file saved in such an obscure place? Who created the folder called "Roaming"? Not me. What does it mean?

Why does this path start with a Users folder and then find it necessary to have another user folder near the end of the path? Why so many freakin' users? Can I get rid of some of them?

Why is there a user folder called Public? I deleted it and now some programs are complaining. I don't want it, don't need it. can't (apparently) delete it.

There are NO USERS!!! Just me, dammit. Can't I simplify this folder structure?

(Rant off)

On the topic of PC133 RAM, I have seen two different CL numbers, 2 and 3. What does the CL number mean and how does it affect stability and performance?

On "Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsEase of Access CenterMake the computer easier to see", and under "Make things on the screen easier to see", there is a checkbox labeled "Make the focus rectangle thicker". What is the "focus rectangle", and what does it mean to make it "thicker"?



Another question regarding upgrading from XP to Win 8.

There is a point in the upgrade process where it asks what you want to keep -

Just personal files

What does "nothing" actually mean? What I mean by this is, does "nothing" format my C partition and leave the rest alone, or does it nuke everything it sees? The upgrade process is very good at providing no information on what it's actually doing behind that blue screen.

What I ideally want is a clean C partition with a new install of Win 8 and for it to leave my other partitions and drives alone.

On the flipside, what does "Just personal files" mean? Does it just install Windows 8 into a new C:Winsomething directory and not touch the rest?

Would be nice if Microsoft actually published what these selection actually do rather than assuming they know what's best and we really don't need to know.

Thanks again,



This has been bugging me for quite a while now. Since the developer preview, I have been noticing "Windows 7 File Recovery" to be sitting in the control panel. At first, I thought it's just there because it's in the testing phase. But now, it's still there in the RTM build (Build 9200). What does this mean? Isn't the RTM build nearly final (if you ignore a few patches that might be coming) ? If this is not by design (and I wouldn't want to think that it is), how did this get past the testing phases?

I put two HDDs on GA P55A-UD4P motherboard in Raid1 type array (on Intel SATA Controller) and they were working fine for quite some time (2 weeks or so).
One day, after Windows started up, I noticed a blue icon on Intel RST manager and it says that the array is initializing. What does it mean? Will it delete the data that is stored in there already ? As far as I know, initialization is needed in Raid5 type arrays, where parity needs to be calculated. Raid1 is a pure mirror so what would be the need for initialization right now with data in the array already ? Any hints would be helpful. I am really worried since it was supposed to be the safe data storage solution ...
Thank you


1) If when dragging a window you bump the top edge of the screen it will make the window full screen. Since I never like to use full screen this is very annoying. How I turn it off?

2) Sometimes when attempting to move the cursor the screen will scroll instead of the cursor moving. What causes this and how can I turn it off?

3) Sometimes a spiraling arrowhead will appear near the cursor. Sometimes it spirals right and sometimes it spirals left. What triggers it. What does it mean and what are you supposed to do with it? Ho do you turn it off?

4) Sometimes a bold with arrowheads above and below it will appear. What causes this. What does it mean and what are you supposed to do with it and how do I turnoff.

Thanks Larry

Okay, let me start by saying I don't have a great deal of experience with computers, so you may have to "dumb it down" for me.
The icons on my desktop keep going to the left side of the screen. I have unchecked the option to "auto arrange" several times, but it keeps moving the icons to the left side of the screen anyway.

Are there any alternatives for me having quick access to the programs, folders etc that I use on a regular basis other than putting them on the desktop as shortcuts?? I may or may not be using some of these terms in the correct way?

Can I move them down to the task bar? How many icons will the task bar hold? Can I have multiple task bars? Will this slow down my computer?
What does it mean to create a library for shortcuts?

One last question; why do some items appear under the start menu and others dont?

Thanks for your h elp

what does it mean when there's a little shield on an icon?

Probably an odd question, however, i'd like to know the answer. It's to do with that svchost.exe thing that's running. When I typed svchost.exe in a search engine sometimes it'll say something like 'svchost.exe -k netsvcs' what is the meaning of '-k'?

I like to know these things! lol!


I booted up the .iso DVD that I have and notcied that Windows 7 automatically moved itself to the D: drive. It will not run at all. When I press F1 to boot the hard drive, they keyboard stops working. If I delete the partition does it keep the 1st one with Windows XP or does the Windows.old folder still exist? Plus what does it mean when Windows XP is in NTFS? How do I change that, is that gonna be a problem if I remove the Windows 7 partition?

Hi there! I know it's kinda random to ask this question. Is anybody know what does it mean custom locale here? Control panel > Region and Language. And what is the usage? Thanks for your thought.
