  1. I’m donating an HP G60t-200 notebook with Windows 7 (HE) and want to reset it to original factory condition. HP Support page says do the following to access the Recovery Manager: - Click Start, type recovery in the search field, and select HP Recovery Manager to run recovery from the D drive. - Turn on the power and press F11 to run recovery without starting Windows (on some models esc key and then F11 key ). - Insert the customer-created Recovery disc in disc drive and turn the power on to boot from the DVD disc. - Insert replacement the Recovery disc purchased from HP, and turn the power on to boot from the DVD disc. The Recovery Manager is supposed to look like this: https://support.hp.com/doc-images/36/c03573444.jpg The problem I have is I can’t get to the Manager. Also, I do not have any of the discs they mention in the 3rd and 4th steps. I thought I could simply do a reset using the Recovery partition that came installed in the HD. But how do I access it? Thanks, Steve
  2. Psst, so is anyone home? It almost doesn't look like home, it's been so long. Well, I've managed to get myself into trouble. I pulled a hard drive from a Core 2 Dou and put it into a (Sandy Bridge) Core i5 computer, swapped out Win7 product keys (I think), upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, tried to change user name and related registry settings, and Windows 10 then wiped out all of the user's data . So I have a few options: 1. Cut losses and move on. 2. revert/restore back to Windows 7 (using an available HDD) 3. try to recover files from previous folder/file versions option (I now know where to go, just not sure how to extract the "shadow" copy) 4. make full raw copy of HDD (prior to reverting back to Windows 7) -a) what's a good means to make full raw copy of HDD commercial or open/free options? DriveImage XML, Acronis, etc. I learned the Ghost 15 doesn't/didn't work well with EFI/UEFI based systems, which is what I'm working with.

    ReactOS 0.3.16 review

    http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2014/02/06/reactos-0-3-16-review/ It ain't windows or linux but I thought it might interest those poor folk who have to use windows programs.
  4. I have a Windows 7 (64 bit) Dell Inspiron One infected with the "FBI lock screen virus (REloadit Pack Scam)" I'm unable to boot into Safe Mode. When I hold F12 on boot up I get the following boot options: - Hard Disk - DVD/CD drive - Diagnostics - BIOS Setup None of those help me. (The "Diagnostics" option results in the Dell "ePSA Pre-boot System Assessment" which simply checks all the hardware (cables, OS Boot Path, drives, video card, CPU fan, processor and memory) with no outlet to a Command Prompt or anything . . . so useless.) So the problem via this method is getting to the desktop which I can not due. I ran Windows Defender Offline on the infected machine. It found 7 problems but not the ones related to the FBI ransomware because upon reboot the same situation existed. My safe machine is my Windows 7 (32 bit) laptop. Next I found HitMan Pro Malware Removal tool which specifically mentions the FBI ransomware. My problem now is how do I make a USB stick for the 64 bit infected machine from my 32 bit safe machine? (This is my actual question) Any other ideas on how to get this bugger out? Thanks, Steve
  5. HP urges consumer customers not to downgrade new PCs to Windows 7 - Computerworld BOLD emphasis mine You are responsible for getting the downgrade media from your OEM computer manufacturer and doing the downgrade yourself. For consumer grade computers, you can upgrade to Windows 8 Pro to be able to obtain downgrade rights, but HP charges $70 for the move from Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro.
