Either the article or the comment by Jerry Frey is wrong.
The article describes that split created one file with items hit by the filter condition, and the original PST left as-is, and that definitely is no split. A split creates at least two files, all with unique content, which can be merged to get the original PST without any duplicates.

Hi,

In case of Split pst by size it Split one PST file into multiple PST.
In case of By Date, By Mail id, the software creates a new PST file as per the size or as per mail id selected.

Hope this clears your doubt :)

Speaker unmuted and muted
In a question here at Experts Exchange, a member was looking for "a little app that would allow sound to be turned OFF and ON by simply clicking on an icon in the system tray". This article shows how to achieve that, as well as providing the same OFF/ON audio muting toggle via a single keystroke.

A simple method to resolve a "keyboard not working" problem by modifying the Windows registry. This issue can often be encountered after using the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Agent to perform a Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) conversion process.

Jackie,

The short answer is yes, but there is really no need.  Hackers are more likely to use lockers than rootkits on androids. Due to the need to elevate privileges to properly execute a rootkit,  the target for such an attack would be more limited than standard lockers.

Speed up a Slow Computer
There are many software programs on offer that will claim to magically speed up your computer. The best advice I can give you is to avoid them like the plague, because they will often cause far more problems than they solve. Try some of these "do it yourself" tips instead.

GetTickCount64
The Windows functions GetTickCount and timeGetTime retrieve the number of milliseconds since the system was started. However, the value is stored in a DWORD, which means that it wraps around to zero every 49.7 days. This article shows how to solve that problem by using the GetTickCount64 function.

I have a procedure that I documented for my junior techs that follows close to the same sequence as yours.
We use it not only when Win7 updates are not working, but also during Win7 reinstalls.  Gets us past having to download and install quite so many updates, right out of the box.

Prerequisites
A) You must have SP1 installed before installing these updates.
B) Ensure that your system time has the proper timezone and that the time is correct.

1) Change Windows Update settings to 'Never check for updates'
2) Reboot your PC
3) Install KB3020369 - April 2015 Servicing stack update ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369 )
4) Reboot your PC
5) Install KB3125574 - April 2016 Convenience rollup update ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3125574 )
6) Reboot your PC
***NOTE: If Internet Explorer 11 is already installed, skip to Step 9.
7) Install IE11 - Internet Explorer 11 Offline Installer
 ( 32-bit = http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/2/F/92FC119C-3BCD-476C-B425-038A39625558/IE11-Windows6.1-x86-en-us.exe )
 ( 64-bit = http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/1/7/7179A150-F2D2-4502-9D70-4B59EA148EAA/IE11-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe )
8) Reboot your PC
9) Install KB3172605 - July 2016 update rollup ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3172605 )
10) Reboot your PC
11) Change Windows Update settings to whichever setting you prefer
12) Check for new updates.

At this point, the update process should be working properly.
Well, as properly as Windows Update ever has... *grin*

Additional notes:
It is not *strictly* required to reboot after each change, but if you want to be certain that you only have to go through this process once,
it is safest to just reboot when indicated.  Changing the Windows Update settings to 'Never check' as the first step will alleviate a lot of the headache that an out-of-control update service can cause, and will let you install the updates without having to stop the service each time.


I welcome any comments or constructive criticisms.

Windows 10
When you start your Windows 10 PC and got an "Operating system not found" error or just saw "Auto repair for startup" or a blinking cursor with black screen. A loop for Auto repair will start but fix nothing. You will be panic as there are no backup of your document. How can you fix the problem?

In addition, the first thing that you should do is chkdsk c: /r
and let that scan. Usually the damage is from windows shutting down incorrectly and corrupting the hard drive or files on the drive. The rest if that may not be necessary. If that fails, then proceed to the mbr repair.

On a sheer hunch (and desperation) I selected Show Important Updates.  I unchecked all of them... scrolled down to the bottom of the list (where the earliest updates where.  I clicked the last three which included:

Definition update for Windows Defender KB915597
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 KB 890830
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64 based systems KB 976932

They installed cleanly.  I then selected the next 10, and they installed cleanly. Then clicked the balance, and they also installed cleanly.

I know... I earlier said the disk I used was a Windows 7 Pro SP 1 disk.  Double checking now, that is what it reads.
I also know that I checked Computer | Properties and it showed Windows 7 SP 1, as that was a requirement for one of the KB's you suggested.

So when is SP 1 not SP 1? I don't know, but that, or one of the other three listed above was the problem blocking the downloads.

Rindi, thank you very much for sticking with this thread. I hope the notes I added here will help others.

I use WSUS offline (wsusoffline.net).  After installing the update to Windows Update that you linked first, this will download all updates and install them in a cmd window.  Working at a school, I cannot have a computer take all day just to install updates.  This has cut the time down significantly, and I can make one offline install package to deploy across many computers.

Thanks! My first attempt was using Windows Update. I should make a quick edit to specify that. I went through all the usual measures and they all failed until I removed NetMotion. I wasted a whole afternoon on that machine!
