Hi. I wasn't sure which topic this falls under as it sort of concerns both OS and this is, I'm sure, a **really noob** (I want to start learning linux) question but can i use one pen drive between the 2 different OS's? Earlier I was using my pen drive which is a SanDisk Cruzer Pop 4GB between my Windows 8.1 laptop and my recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 laptop and it was going well. On both laptops I safely removed the pen drive before unplugging it but now the pen drive can't be detected. I've tried it on both laptops …

Hello. I was just checking up my devices and on Intel(R) Display Audio and Intel(R) Dynamic Platform & Thermal Framework Driver there is an exclamation mark which indicated that the driver software needs to be updated. but i updated it using the "search automatically for updated driver software" and windows says "windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date" but still the exclamation mark is still there. I even used Driver Booster 2 to scan an update and the drovers are up to date. should i just ignore the exclamation mark then? because checking drivescape.com …

Lenovo Y480, Win 8.1. Last month a Malware Bytes update started cannibalizing my system, quarantining over 600 driver files, .dlls and assorted stuff. (Earlier part of that story [here](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/threads/481460/mbam-blocked-and-cant-scan-cant-upate-cant-install-it-again#). I tried to undo everything, and in the process uninstalled MBAM, thereby deleting the quarantined files. My system is full of holes, and won't do odd things, like recognise external USB hard drives or thumb drives. There are no system restore points prior to the problem. This is a problem for me, because my laptop came without a system restore disc. I took the precaution of making a system restore image …

Should i remove C:\Program Files (x86)\Speedial ? if not then why is it listed and what is it for? Also another : C:\END <- what is that? C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins\Ask.xml <- i dont really use mozilla although it is installed is this file needed? What about conduit? what is it?

Hi all, I have spent a long time on this problem and trawled all the forums. Much of the discussion is old. I have two Windows 8 computers, set up for file sharing, but the process is not exactly even, perhaps becuase the desktop is a private computer and the laptop is a work one, or more likely because there is something wrong with the permissions on the desktop. That would be easy to tease out if someone knew about it. I have looked at all the links, and tried numerous solutions, though. On the laptop, I can open the …

I've spent a good deal of time now looking for and equivalent to the previous service pack network install model for updating Windows 8 to 8.1. While I wouldn't expect to see this for the RT version, which is web-centric, I'm concerned not to see it for other non-enterprise versions. What is Microsoft signalling to users who do not (and in some cases, cannot) have the speed the make updates like this viable, or organizations that are not large enough to use WSUS but are concerned for the bandwith cost for updating multiple machines? If anyone has found a download …

My wife just booted up her Win8 computer with Start8 to find that the desktop looks completely different (personal photo gone, generic Windows photo now), files she was working on yesterday (TextEase) seemed to have disappeared but were in the Recycle bin, and the metro interface only has about 4 tiles on it now rather than a screenful. All her photos have gone from the MyPhotos folder, and her music has also disappeared. As she has to get her work done tonight, we have decided not to do a System Restore or Last Known Good Configuration and I will try …

I've been trying all day to find a way to duel boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu. None of the google links I read seem to work on my computer. My computer has two internal hard drives, Widows 8 is installed on the first drive c:. The second hard drive has two partitions, one for use with Windows while the other partition is where I want to install Ubuntu. The links I have read say it's quite simple, just tell Ubuntu to use the partition I want. But neither Ubuntu version 12 or version 13 recognize the two partitions on the …

We use CodeIgniter custom session data to handle our login (among many other things). Our settings are as follows: $config['sess_cookie_name'] = 'danisession'; $config['sess_expiration'] = 0; $config['sess_expire_on_close'] = FALSE; $config['sess_encrypt_cookie'] = TRUE; $config['sess_use_database'] = FALSE; $config['sess_table_name'] = 'ci_sessions'; $config['sess_match_ip'] = FALSE; $config['sess_match_useragent'] = FALSE; $config['sess_time_to_update'] = 300; ... $config['csrf_protection'] = true; $config['csrf_token_name'] = 'csrf_token'; $config['csrf_cookie_name'] = 'csrf_cookie'; $config['csrf_expire'] = 7200; We used to have `sess_match_useragent` set to true, but had to change it to false because it was causing issues with certain useragents that were giving different useragent info on each page load. Now, we are experiencing the issue where a …

Hi there, I have a machine with 2 harddrives. One has Windows 7 installed and the other has Windows 8 Consumer Preview installed. Since my Win8 is my primary, it starts up into windows 8 without even showing the bootloader. Is there a way for me to go add the other HDD that has win7 installed to the win8 bootloader so that I can choose between the 2 OSs when starting up? Thanks in advance!

How will Microsoft differentiate Windows 8 in an already crowded Windows OS user space? How about, for one, with the use of a photographic gesture security system for logging in? The idea of using a photo to identify and authenticate the user is not without some pretty obvious problems (ambient lighting, bad hair day, forgetting to shave could all screw up your chances of using the computer that day) which is why Microsoft developers have thought outside of the box on this one. [ATTACH=RIGHT]23386[/ATTACH]The important part of the 'photographic gesture security system' can be found in the gesture bit. Instead …

Hi guys :D I have a windows 7 touchscreen tablet and I would like an ubuntu partition. The issue is that the bootloader that comes with windows 7 doesn't support touchscreen input so i will not be able to select which OS to boot into. I understand that the windows 8 Developer preview uses a bootloader that works with touchscreens, so my question. Is it possible to use the windows 8 bootloader without using the OS to select between a win 7 and ubuntu partition and if it is possible, will it cause problems? Thanks :D
