While visiting another forum I noticed some rather long-winded or 3rd party utility based suggestions to keep malware from replicating via flash drives. I was then reminded of a very old and lost blog entry I should repost. Malware can spread to flash drives in several different ways from an infected system, but you really […]
Founder and Developer - After over a dozen years "in the trenches" as a computer repair technician specializing in malware removal, I came to focus on a software development hobby. Initially I created tools to assist technicians like myself with the inefficient, repetitive, and mundane tasks PC techs face daily, in order to provide a far more efficient means of getting the job done. Later came an interest in using my development skills and tech experience for prevention of malware...
So you’ve wiped your laptop, installed Windows 7, or whatever… but you forgot to backup your MS SBA company file. That’s easy to do since it only reminds you to back up the file when OPENING it, NOT while closing it when it makes the most sense (like, after you’ve made the changes, ahem… good […]
I am one of the MASSES who suffer from the WHS backup issue where WHS Connector puts my laptop back to sleep (which is probably caused by not getting an IP quick enough via wireless.) This means that when I turn on my laptop in the morning it goes RIGHT BACK INTO STANDBY until I […]
It seems a little of everything is in Windows 7. It is a jack of all trades, but as usual no matter how hard they try, Windows 7 is a master of NONE. Start > Search > system repair disc will bring up a utility to burn a custom WinPE type environment meant for fixin’ […]
PSR.EXE aka “Problem Steps Recorder” is a sweet Win7 addition for those of us who don’t know exactly what our client (or our mother) is doing to produce that whacky problem. Enter PSR. Click Start > Run (or ahem, the search box will do) and “PSR” no quotes, of course. Hit the Start recording button, […]
How to fix? Import from a backup, of course.. ugh, why would any respectable tech backup his own stuff? (like, my old blog, man… or this one for that matter!) Well I hear the rules may be in an original copy of the PST (Not a backup/exported PST) and that re-opening the original PST will […]
Ever found out your WHS connector software was missing? I mean, from the server side! Well normally it would reside in \serverSoftwareHome Server Connector Software, aka http://server:55000 — but sometimes not. At least not for me when my laptop was nagging me for a connector upgrade that simply wasn’t there… It seems some users have […]
WMS Idle ending program dialogs at windows shutdown… NOT the same old problem! I’ve been seeing this a lot lately on new system builds. All of the research I’ve done has pointed to it being an issue with MS Office/Outlook, some involving Communicator, many listing other similar errors on just about all 9x/NT versions of […]
Here’s a tech blog for other techies, primarily centered around the experiences and observations of a seasoned Windows tech. Sometimes you just gotta share what you learn, and that’s what this is all about. Have a strange problem? Maybe I have a strange solution! There’s a lot of that going around in the Windows world. […]
