  1. If you see this error message here is a fix for it. Update failed (error: 7)An error occurred while checking for updates: Installation failed. Please try again. Error code = 0x00000000. Got a fix guys, if you're on Windows, go to task manager => processes and look for googleupdate.exe and kill all google update processes and then go back to chrome and check for updates it should be working like honey and jam! (note) You may need to look in the Task Scheduler Library. Credits Joe Chahoud
  2. You typically use the sandbox on exe's that you want to protect the system from. However there is a trick/tip that actually will allow you to install software directly into the sandbox and execute that sandboxed software inside of the sandbox its self with the latest version. That way you can try and experiment with software and not have any risks or end up having to load up resource hoggy VMWare environments etc. This video explains the procedure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dN3SAF_K98Q Credits: Morthawt.

  5. Firefox may give you a "Warning: Unresponsive script" prompt that says "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete." This article describes why this could happen and possible solutions and workarounds. This error is telling you that Firefox thinks that a script may be running out of control and would make Firefox hang if nothing is done. The script could be something on a web page you're accessing, in an extension you installed, or even Firefox itself. Type about:config in the address bar.Ignore warning and click I'll be carefulType script into the filter boxFind dom-max_script_run_timeDbl click dom-max_script_run_timeNew window will openEnter 0 for integer value OK

  7. Seriously, the insert key, unless you’re doing stuff in linux, is such a :filtered: waste, mine is so close to the backspace key and it’s SO annoying getting in overwrite mode and typing over a bunch of stuff. Luckily there’s a way to get rid of, modify your windows registry! Here’s a .reg file to do it for your automatically in Windows Vista (probably xp and 7 as well) kill-insert-key.reg Just run this, restart your computer, and cross overwrite off your baggage list! credit: dirk and dirk
  8. If you're using Windows or Microsoft Office and you'd like to extend the activation period to the maximum 120 days instead of the usual 30-day period, it's possible if you use Windows Vista and Windows 7 and you're the administrator of the PC. Simply click on the Start button and in the search window, type in cmd and you'll see the Command Prompt at the top of the page. Don't press Enter yet — instead, right-mouse click on the shortcut and select Run as Administrator. Now, after the Command Prompt loads up, type this: slmgr.vbs -rearm and the hit Enter and reboot. That's it. Tip credit belongs to Mark Saltzman
  9. If you want to customize the icons size, for example, to set them larger than the default large size ?? well here is a hint on how to set the icons size to any size you want: Using the left click of the mouse, click on an empty area in the desktop. This step is to make sure that there is no application selected/clicked on. Using your keyboard, press and keep holding the CTRL button, then using your mouse wheel, roll it upward to make the icons size larger, or downward to set the icon size smaller
  10. To add the toolbar back, you’ll want to right-click on an open area of the taskbar, and choose Toolbars New Toolbar from the menu.

You should probably also unlock the taskbar at this point.paste the following path into the location bar %appdata%MicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick LaunchMake sure that the location bar shows the full path, , before you choose the “Select Folder” button.You’ll immediately notice the Quick Launch toolbar on the taskbar, but it’s all the way over on the right, so you’ll want to click on the dotted lines and then drag the toolbar all the way to the left (which is slightly tricky sometimes). Note that you’ll need to right-click and unlock the taskbar before you can move the toolbar.
  11. Even if you remove the software from the computer, in IE it will still let babylon search as the default site for new tabs in the browser. I don´t know if it is possible to find it in any menu in IE (at least I didn´t), but you can change it in the windows registry. Open a dos shell, or execute "RegEdit" through the launch menu. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftInternet ExplorerAbout URLsTabs and change the entry that points to babylon search, to the one you desire (be it google, bing, or whatever).
  12. If Windows XP restarts because of a serious error, the Windows Error Reporting tool prompts you to report the problem to Microsoft for troubleshooting purposes. Windows may prompt you to report this information every time that you restart the computer, even if no error occurred during the previous session. After this problem begins to occur, you are prompted to send the information after every restart, even if you do not send the information.This problem occurs because after a Minidump file is written, the paging file continues to have a flag set that indicates that a Minidump file must be written. To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows XP. You can solve this problem by recreating the pagefile. Click start Right click My Computer Click Properties On the advanced tab,in the Performance section click settings In the virtual memory section,click change For paging file size for selected drive,click no paging file,and then click set Click yes after the following warning appears If the paging file on volume x: has an initial size of less than xx megabytes then the system my not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyway. Click system managed size Click OK four times,and then restart the computer when you are prompted.

    If you've ever felt the need to get rid of MS Messenger, heres a trick that will let you do that, and so much more.
