System Utilities are a type of system software used to support the computer infrastructure, distinguishing it from application software which is aimed at directly performing tasks that benefit ordinary users. Commonly used utilities include password managers, disk managers, system monitors, data synchronization tools, security and antivirus software and editors.

Undetected application removes startup items that are unsigned on my Windows 10, periodically. My guess, about once a week.

I put them back, then after a while they disappear. Those items are internal software that should have nothing to do with any machine cleanup.

I suspect Defender Cleanup, but cannot be sure about that. Maybe some setting?

Where can I find an updated Nvidia graphics driver for an HP Elitebook 8540P?  We recently upgraded from Win7Pro to Win10Pro and the laptop keeps having issues with the multiple monitor set up.  We use a "Plugable" brand USB adapter for one external monitor and the VGA port for another external monitor.  Two of the screens will randomly go black. If we restart the laptop, it works fine...for a while.

I did go to Plugable's site and downloaded their updated driver. I went to HP to see if there are newer drivers, but their site said there are no newer drivers.

Also happening with this laptop, the VPN connection keeps disconnecting. Will do it like 10 times a day. We are using the built in VPN connection. No other computers in this office are doing that, only the laptop and only since we upgraded to Win10Pro.

Hi Experts,

I'm sort of running out of server space.

Would like to know if there is a way to determine what has caused the latest decrease of free space, as last few days there was over 15 GB used up...

Thanks

Hi Experts,

I usually work remotely from home PC to my work PC using GoToMyPC.

Many times I need to copy a screenshot from my home PC and paste it somewhere at the work PC, usually in MS Paint.

What I do is paste and save them locally, then use GoToMyPC transfer file utility to save that at the work PC.

Wondering if there is an easier way to accomplish it?

Thanks

Is anyone familiar with Binary Fortress  Software? We're thinking of rolling out their TrayStatus utility across our company, and want to make sure the company is legitimate.

They're based in Canada and make utilities like DisplayFusion, TrayStatus, iTunesFusion, etc.

I'm trying to run the firmware update on a Microsoft Surface Dock. the Surface is running Windows 10 and is up to date.

I installed Surface_Dock_FwUpdate_1.42.139_Win10_17134_19.084.31680_0.msi on the Surface Book, no issues with install, rebooted, but I cannot find the dock updater listed under programs.  I can't find it anywhere.  Does anyone know where the .exe is for this program?

Thanks,

Hello.

Some time ago I tried to clone the main SSD disk and the only partition where I'd installed Windows 10 to another disk / partition using this tool :

https://www.miray-software.com/products/applications/hdclone/basic-edition.html

So,I chosen as target the disk and the only partition that was there (it is solid state disk) and as a target the only existing partition on the destination disk and I started the process. After some time Windows 10 started to working bad,I saw that the icons on the desktop gone away and nothing worked anymore,so taken by the fear,I stopped the operation. I must not do that,really. All the informations stored on every disk and partition (USB and SATA) attached on my PC was gone. I still don't understand why it deleted all the partition tables of every disk NOT involved in the operation. I lost everything in every disk. Maybe that tool has some kind of serious bug. I don't know. Fact is that I found another case like mine.

After some day I tried to recover the data lost with this tool :

https://www.ontrack.com/it/

and I have seen that all the files that have been deleted by that cloning tool are still there,saved on the disks,with the same organization structure. Now,I think that the Miray hdclone basic edition removed the first track of the disks and their partition tables. I would like to know if …

Hi Experts,
What is the easiest way to search for a word within the contents of files in a specific folder, including sub folders?
Would prefer not to install software or change pc settings, as this is needed for a one time only.

Hi Experts,
How can I get to see the latest file I downloaded?
When I sort by date modified, it displays all folders first and after that many files, not necessary in order...

When I attempt to log in to my iSeries server via Putty (Port 22) - I am connected to the server, but when I attempt to log in, I get "Access Denied"

I compared my SSHD_CONFIG to other systems and everything appears to be the same.

I verified that other users get the same thing - so this is not related to any specific user...

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

I have an HP EliteDesk 800 G3 small form factor. It has a solid state hard drive. I need to wipe the hard drive, so I'm using "SystemRescue CD" (it's a Linux distro). I boot from the CD and then I type:    shred -v /dev/sda.
     I've used this method to successfully wipe a previous PC, but on this PC it won't work. On this PC it says "no such file or directory."
     I tried several variations on this command (shred --v.....     shred -verbose.....     shred --verbose.....) but it still won't work.
     So then I typed:   fdisk -l   and I got the following:
          /dev/nume0n1p1
          /dev/nume0n1p2
          /dev/nume0n1p3
          (etc)
     I've never seen this before. I thought I'd see something like:
          /dev/sda1
          /dev/sda2
          /dev/sda3
          etc
     So then I typed:   shred -v /dev/nume0n1p     (as well as the 3 variations of this), but it still won't work.

-Anyone know how I can wipe this PC?
-What is "/nume0n1p"?  Is that the solid state version of "/sda"?
-Are the "v" switch and the "verbose" switch one and the same thing?
-Does it matter if a Linux switch has one dash (-) or two (--)?

We have Users who connect to our site via VPN.Some users have poor internet connection and usually end up mailing us that the VPN is offline even if its not.
So i would like to know is there a way to insert ping in BGinfo? That way the user can see the average ping so they know its not the VPN but the internet connection.

Looking for a freeware screenshot capture program for W7 / W10 to:
  • Capture entire screen upon Print Screen button
  • Automatically Prompt the user for a comment, such that they don't have to bring up an image editing program in a UI
  • Then save to disk (jpg, png, etc.)  upon completion of the comment.

I'm attempting to collect feedback from a large number of employees about issues they have with a particular program.
All the machines are cloned and set up identically.
I anticipate writing some light code to then FTP (or maybe programatically email) the file once created.

The old ScreenPrint32 did the comment capture part perfectly for prints (but wouldn't capture this for saved files).  It just popped up a fill in the blank box upon the trigger (Prt Scr button) and as soon as the user hit the OK button on the comments, everything was done.  No more interaction.  Unfortunately, ScreenPrint32 is a little flaky under W10 even when run in compatibility mode for XP sp2.

Something like Greenshot (my fav) saves it nicely, but you have to interact with an image editing program to add a comment.  No bueno.
Thanks.
