Hi chaps, I have a Dell XPS17, dual booting with Windows and Ubuntu on it. I have to give it away and therefore reinstall windows. Usually, I'd format the whole HD and reinstall Windows, but I don't have the Windows CD ā€“ it wasn't dispatched with the laptop unfortunately ā€“ so I'd like to try to do everything with the Recovery partition. I checked and it appears to be there. Now, can I format the whole HD except the Recovery partition so that I reinstall windows and remove Ubuntu with some Windows' utility rather than manually formatting it?

Hello All, I have an issue with Windows 7: sometime the copy paste doesn't work and when this issue appear => the only way to remove it is by rebooting my pc.

And also I'm unable to copy folders and files from one location to another !

Hello. I have a project to develop a tool that reads Windows 7 raw memory dump. My lecturer says that he'd rather we use python or c coz that's his specialy but we can choose whatever. We chose python (bcoz i feel like its an opportunity to further learn about python) but what do you guys think? what language would be a good choice? then theres the whole GUI thing to think about, if we use python we gotta find a GUI framework etc... Anyway, so this tool is suppose to get the network packet from a memory dump file …

Accidentally downloaded an update for adobe flash. Moments later, Bytefence installed itself onto my laptop, as well as an app called 'weatherbuddy'. My browser was also hijacked by Palikan. Finally, I was able to restore my default browser and I installed Malwarebytes and ESET. Both had found and deleted files relating to these apps, but they are still running in the background and appear on my taskbar icon tray but cannot be found in the control panel. Thanks for your help!

Hello, I have my "old" windows 7 machine that I would like to maintain as much data and programs as possible. I bought a new Windows 10 machine and noticed that Windows Easy Transfer is not there. I have seen various post online about upgrading to the same machine but they don't seem to apply when dealing with two different machines. Any suggestions?

I got a new laptop and I didn't have enough money to buy Microsoft Office so I got Kingsoft Office instead. I'm trying to copy and paste a questionnaire that I completed online for a quiz for class. The questionnaire has the question and a box where you select true or false. I was able to highlight it all and copy and paste it into Microsoft Word on my old computer and the question and answer would appear. With Kingsoft when I paste the questions and answers it only displays the questions. Any idea how I can paste it so …

While trying to log in to my BBC Store account on my wife's PC, somehow I ended up replacing my wife's name as User at login (the only account and therefore admin) with my own name and Hotmail address. The named Documents folder has also changed to my name. I have no idea how this happened though it has something to do with me logging into Hotmail on her computer. But how do I rectify this and return the computer to her User name alone. My wife's PC runs on Windows 10 Home.

Hi! I have a problem with Reimage Virus being very active on Google Chrome. I have tried to find it to get rid of it, but do not know enough to be able to locate it. I even did a restore point to try to see if that would fix the problem, to no avail. It keeps popping up. I switch to using Internet Explorer but now it is freezing it, and I am having to use Firefox. Whenever I use Google Chrome, the virus opens pages with commercial sites all the time and doesn't let me do hardly anything. …

A Win7 Pro workstation was joined to a domain and the admins installed some Global Policies that block local administration. It can no longer connect to the PDC and we want to disjoin the workstation from the domain. Will the Global Policies from the PDC survive or not? There are policies that prevent Windows Updates, etc, etc, and we need this workstation to revert to a local-only status. Will those policies be removed if the PC is disjoined from the nominal domain? Thanks...
