Windows-8 coming in 2012

It appears like Microsoft is keen on keeping up with its Vista amends, and the company’s latest roadmap confirms this. According to the roadmap, the OS currently referred to as “Windows 8” should arrive in 2012 and Microsoft is keeping up with its tempo of 3-4 years per major release.
Judging by the roadmap, the company doesn’t expect any delays. This could be due to the fact that Redmond is diligently working on it, or that the new OS will just be a 7 with a few new wallpapers, useless graphics-hog eye-candy and a reshuffling of all your familiar settings, so that you have some “fun” while you’re at it.

GTX 580 launch rumors and leaked pics!

News and rumor site Fudzilla is reporting that Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 580 videocard is going to launch in November, probably before AMD’s Cayman architecture. If true, look for the GTX 580 to show up around the middle of November.
Of course none of this is confirmed, but according to reports, Nvidia will likely target a $500 price point for its upcoming GPU, depending on how AMD’s Cayman cards perform and how AMD chooses to price them.
In related news, a forum member on Chinese-language site PCInLife.com posted a couple of pics of what he claims is the reference design for Nvidia’s GTX 580 part.

How to stop windows shutting down automatically

  Windows XP is very reliable and very stable to use. But some times we face a common problem all the time which is nothing but a sudden shutdown. We wont even have a chance to save our work and this is really annoying to most of the windows XP users. So we can over come this situation in by doing so trouble shooting steps which are very useful.We will see some of the basic troubleshooting steps of windows XP auto-restarting now.
1) Windows XP refuses to shutdown:- The main problem for windows XP which wont shut down will have mainly below sources: Bios problem, Software problems, Recovery settings, Automatic update problems and lots of junk in HDD. So how to overcome this problems??

Bios Problems: The system restarting continuously some times may have a bios problem in it. so its always a better option to update the drivers whenever the manufacturer realeases the updates. We are lucky now-a-days systems since we they are automatically updated by the manufacturer.

Software Problems: Most of the problems restart problems occur due to the junk files which corrupt the registry  and make the system to  get into fatal errors which are very problematic and also the system drivers will make a hell of a problems to us, so we get these fatal errors or BSOD errors which has to resolved. and its always a better option to check the system for errors by using some of the best tools like CCleaner and Registry cleaner.System restore is also a good option to load previous settings.

Recovery Settings: When ever system occurs a fatal error we observe that our system automatically restarts. If the fatal error occurs when shutting down the system, the system restarts automatically. We can stop this by changing a small setting.
1) Click start button and right click on my computer and click on properties.
2) Now click on advance tab.
3) Now go to Startup and Recovery and click on settings, which will open a start-up and recovery dialog box.
4) Now uncheck the last option Automatically restart and click on Ok.
5) Restart the system to make effective changes.

With the help of this setting you will atleast know what the error which you are getting when system restarts with a blue screen error page.

Automatic update problems: When ever we install any automatic updates in our system we always get a pop up menu that we have to restart the system and it really annoys me and we can fix this problem if we want.
1) Click start button and right click on my computer and click on Automatic Updates tab and check the second option Download Updates for me...........and click on ok.
2) Now make a group policy settings which will stop annoying messages from popping up. To do this just open Run (ctrl + R) and type gpedit.msc  and open it.
3) Open Local Computer Policy --> Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Windows Update and double click on No Auto restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installation and select enable and click on Ok.

4) If you dont want to edit the registry and stop the message of automatic update restart the you can use a small application called Leavemealone which will stop windows form nagging you to reboot after an update. But remember this is just a temporary application which will stop windows restart popups so when you restart the windows will again show the popup button so changing the registry is best option.

2) Problems with windows xp sp3 while installing the OS.
This is a major problem where the system hangs and reboots every time when windows is loaded after the windows XP sp3 installation and i have a solution for this problem.

Blue Screen Problem (BSOD)
Mostly this problem will occur when we upgrade our system to sp3 from sp2 or sp1. To over come this problem just restart the system and follow these steps.
 1) Start the windows with the help of a safe mode.
2) When you are in the desktop just open (ctrl + R) and type REGEDIT.
3) There you can see a list of HKEY_ files and from that open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SYSTEM -->CurrentControlSet -->Service--> Intelppm or Intelide.
4) In theright menu we can see a START file, just open it by double clicking.
5) Change the number to 4 and click on Ok.
6) Shutdown the computer and restart it again.

This will fix the problem and this is also can be done when we are having problems while we are installing the windows XP in any SP.

Tips for Faster Internet Downloads

 Are you feeling that your download speed is too poor...
Then here is a good tutorial on how to speed up those downloads.. Though the speed of internet connections continue to rise in line with new technology when we go to download files and WebPages the speed of these downloads is sadly not as fast as advertised it seems and we wonder why faster internet downloads elude us. The reasons are many but there are a few things you can do to increase your download speed quickly.

1. Get a Spyware Remover

One reason you may have a slower than expected internet connection stifling faster internet downloads is spyware. From browsing and downloading you can pick up nasty little buggers called spyware or malware which runs in the background of your machine feeding information back to their masters and slowing things down when browsing. Spyware is a sad fact of the internet and while we can take precautions by using safer browsers like firefox and being careful where we go and what we download we will always attract some. There are many spyware removers on the net you can download however and I suggest you get one to clean up your PC!

2. Change Your Firewall Settings

Many people have firewalls that protect you from unwanted intrusions by hackers and while they can be good things they can sometimes lock down your PC so hard that it throttles back your connection speed to prehistoric levels! Every firewall is different, some are software driven some are stored in your modem or router  and you may not even know it is there but by lowering some of the security levels you can increase the speed of your downloads without any significant increase in security risk.

3. Stop Background Programs

Another issue that slows down download speeds and often the entire performance of your computer are programs that run in the background taking up computer power and sometimes are downloading or uploading data as well. Some are more visible than others, if you look at the bottom right of your screen you can see little icons showing some necessary services but if you have a lot there you may want to turn some off like virus checkers, and especially if you do not know what they are! You can also press ctrl-alt-del and go to the "processes" and you will see a large list of programs running. Most of these are essential but some can be stopped to free up your connection for faster internet downloads and computer performance (do not do this unless you are sure of what you are stopping!)

Top 10 Tips to Improve system speed

1.Let your PC boot up completely before opening any applications.

2.Refresh the desktop after closing any application. This will remove any unused files from the RAM.

3.Do not set very large file size images as your wallpaper. Do not keep a wallpaper at all if your PC is low on RAM (less than 64 MB).

4.Do not clutter your Desktop with a lot of shortcuts. Each shortcut on the desktop uses up to 500 bytes of RAM
5.Empty the recycle bin regularly. The files are not really deleted from your hard drive until you empty the recycle bin.

6.Delete the temporary internet files regularly.

7.Defragment your hard drive once every two months. This will free up a lot of space on your hard drive and rearrange the files so that your applications run faster.

8.Always make two partitions in your hard drive. Install all large Softwares (like PSP, Photoshop, 3DS Max etc) in the second partition. Windows uses all the available empty space in C drive as virtual memory when your Computer RAM is full. Keep the C Drive as empty as possible.

9.When installing new Softwares disable the option of having a tray icon. The tray icons use up available RAM, and also slow down the booting of your PC. Also disable the option of starting the application automatically when the PC boots. You can disable these options later on also from the Tools or preferences menu in your application.

10. Protect your PC from dust. Dust causes the CPU cooling fan to jam and slow down thereby gradually heating your CPU and affecting the processing speed. Use compressed air to blow out any dust from the CPU. Never use vacuum.

Pc Maintaince

Maintaining your computer is the key to keeping it healthy and fully working and of course, fast. Windows 95 has most of the tools for maintaining your PC, but Windows 98 extends the possibilities and makes it even less of a hassle. If you follow the list below and run the programs listed frequently, you will be guaranteed to have a maintained computer at no extra cost. There are, however, other programs in the market with stronger engines, but then again, they're not free (stop smiling...)
Most of these programs can be found under the StartProgramsAccessories,System Tools folder.

1. Disk Defrag: It is advisable to run Defrag under Windows 95 once a month or when you add/remove programs. However, under Windows 98, you can run it every week if you want because it has a new engine, which means that the more you run it, the faster your computer will get. What happens is that your programs are placed on your hard disk in a way so that the ones you use most often are easier for the hard disk to find and run. Make sure that the 'make my programs run faster' is ticked in the 'Settings' window in Defrag.

2. Scandisk: Running a thorough check is good once a month in both Windows 95 and 98. Run this once a month if you feel that your hard disk takes a long time to load programs. A standard check is very fast and checks for basic disk problems concerning files and folders and lost fragments. It takes an average 2 minutes to complete so try running it often.
3. Disk cleanup: This one is good for seeing how much disk space is being used up by unnecessary files that are in the recycle bin, temp folder, or in temporary internet folders. You can then remove them!

4. RegClean: A simple but effective piece of software this is. You can download it for free from Microsoft's web site. It is also available on many magazine cover disks. Reg Clean takes about a minute to check the registry. Then it asks whether you want to clean out redundant or orphan file. This usually helps the computer to get rid of files that have been left behind by uninstalled programs.

5. Windows update: It's a good idea to use Windows Update to make sure your computer has all the latest fixes, patches and updates. You can do so by clicking on its icon in the Start Menu under Windows 98.
6. TweakALL: A very handy program that allows to change settings, which cannot be changed using Windows alone!

Speed up your computer Using Notepad

If your computer become slow, when you are working with many programs. It may be due to RAM because at that time RAM is full of remaining progress pieces which you are working with and you do not need them any more. So, if you can erase or delete those unnecessary pieces of information, your computer RAM will be cleaned and your computer will be speed up.

Cleaning RAM is very easy task here are steps for it, just follow them:

1). Open notepad.

2). Type FreeMem=Space(64000000).

3). Save file with name "CleanRAM.vbs".

4). Close it and run the file.

It will free memory in RAM, if you want to free more memory than you can write following command in notepad instead of what given in step 2.

FreeMem= (256000000) for 256 mb
FreeMem= (128000000) for 128 mb 
FreeMem= (72000000) for 72 mb 
FreeMem= (64000000) for 64 mb 
FreeMem= (32000000) for 32 mb 
FreeMem= (24000000) for 24 mb
