    If you want a one-click utility to just do the updates in one fell swoop, try Syncback Free. It's highly configurable, so you can do a backup (A->B or B->A) or synchronization (A<->B), and even pick...

    My favorite tool for figuring out what's eating disk space is SpaceSniffer. It's got a beautiful graphical display of nested boxes that lets you zero in on which folders look too large relative to...

    Glad to hear you got it all sorted out.

    You shouldn't expect any problems getting rid of "Win 7 Old".

    When you do get around to eliminating "XP" and converting to a single-boot system, that's...

    Yep, known issue. As I like to say, your copy is suffering from schizophrenia. It sees it's own {boot} partition as I: but contains countless registry entries and config files expecting to find...

    Any decent partition manager should work. My preference is for the Partition Manager in Terabyte's Boot-It Bare Metal, but the freebie Mini-Tool Partition Wizard should work adequately, as well.

    It should, but test it to be sure. After you make the CD, boot from it with your external drive plugged in and see what you find.



    They are. If you're really interested--and at the risk of...

    Based on the message from Acronis, it sounds like you got suckered into setting up your dualboot using Microsoft's sloppy, pseudo-multiboot method. (With a true multiboot, each OS would have been...

    I used to have 120GB and even 160GB IDE drives running in my old C600 Latitudes, which was a close cousin of the Inspiron 4000. You should have no trouble using a 80GB IDE drive.

    However, note...

    Me too! I still multiboot a DOS partition on every one of my own machines because there's some stuff I do regularly that's always been just plain faster and easier in DOS. Windows has its place and...

    In your post you seem to suggest the problem started with some updates ... Windows Updates, perhaps? Do you have it set to install all updates or only critical ones?

    Both your screenshots are consistent and show the same thing, Tom.

    Your hard drive is 250 decimal GB--aka 238,000 binary MB or 232 binary GB. It has only two partitions: one large one for the OS,...

    I'm confused by the contradictory statements, "Bars are not there in the original video I downloaded" vs. "Bars show when playing downloaded file"?

    IAC, I think ultimately your goal should be to...

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but I'm not sure it's been established where the gray bars are coming from. Are they embedded in the video itself? Or are they being added by the player because...

    Sounds like you don't have the Dell Touchpad driver installed. Without the driver, Windows sees the touchpad as a generic "PS/2 Compatible Mouse". Visit the downloads section for your Inspiron at...

    I don't use LastPass, so take this with a grain of salt. I've noticed similar behavior on other sites, so my guess is LastPass may be using scripting to control which folders are open or closed. ...

    That's correct--the Dell/Symantec PC Restore only applied to systems that shipped with XP. Dell's Vista and Win7 recovery systems are fundamentally different. (The link Clint and Joe pointed you to...

    Yes, you're on the right track, except as F.U.N. said, make the switch another router. You need three routers in a "Y" configuration. (You can't use a switch for the first router because something...

    That's long been a problem with RA. If she's behind a router RA picks up the internal IP her router assigns her, not the router's WAN side (public-facing) IP. And even if you figure out her public...

    ZTree is the successor to XTree. For your deja vu moment of the day, take a look at ztree.com. (It's not free, but ISTR XTree wasn't free, either.)

    AeroAdmin sounds a lot like Teamviewer (which is what I use), so I was curious enough to go take a look. It's from a website in Russia. That should raise some alarm bells.
