Time to update your CD burning software. CDBurnerXP is a free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs.
And it also comes in a “portable” version!
Oh, and it’s FREE!
Have you bought a new DELL laptop or PC lately? Notice that you didn’t get any CD’s with it? And you aren’t sure what to do with the annoying DELL Backup and Recovery software pop ups?
If you haven’t run the DELL Backup and Recovery software to create re-install disks (rescue disks) for your computer, I suggest you do. I recently had a 3 month old Windows 8.1 PC corrupt out and the only option was to re-install the OS.
Of course, there was no rescue disks for that wayward system, but I did find this option. All you need is the Service Tag number and a system still under warranty. (Typically less than a year old)
Click on this link and follow the steps to order your recovery media.
(Received the install CD the next day and fixed the system)
Microsoft Fix It Solution Center will automatically diagnose and repair common software problems in Windows, Internet Explorer or other Microsoft products.
I have used it numerous times since it’s release in 2010 to fix printer issues, CD/DVD not found, and Internet Explorer issues just to name a few.
1. Click here to download Fix It portable. (Provided by Microsoft)
2. Run the MicrosoftFixit-portable.exe file you just downloaded.
4. Once the download completes, you will find a folder named Fix it portable.
6. In the ‘Fix it portable’ folder, there will be a file ‘Launch Fix it.exe’. That’s your Microsoft Fix it portable edition.
Copy that folder to your USB flash drive and keep it handy for the next Windows issue you have.
OutlookTempCleaner 1.2 has just been released. The main new addition is that it now also supports Outlook 2013, including the Office 365 editions of Office 2013.
OutlookTempCleaner is a free support tool which gives you easy access to the Temp folder that is being used when you directly open an attachment from Outlook. Under certain circumstances, this folder can become “full” and you are unable to open the attachment.
Aside from easy access to the folder, it can also report its size and gives you the opportunity to empty it. It also supports command line switches which allows you to automate maintenance of the folder via Windows’ Scheduled Tasks or logon/logoff scripts.
