    The .exe means that it's an "execute" file. That means that it will run something. It could be beneficial or it could be malware. I'd bet on malware of some sort if you don't know the person who sent it. Best bet ... delete the email from your inbox and then delete it from your Deleted folder also.

  • Will my build have enough power?

    Well budget or no budget is not a good idea to not plan for the future. You sound like someone who is at least fairly computer literate so here's my advice. If you cannot afford to buy at 750 or 800 watt power supply then don't buy anything else until you have the money to do so. More than likely, in a year or two, you'll be looking... show more

If you cannot afford to buy at 750 or 800 watt power supply then don't buy anything else until you have the money to do so. More than likely, in a year or two, you'll be looking at upgrading a Mobo, CPU, GPU, etc., etc. If you under buy now then you'll have the 550W sitting in your closet doing nothing, and will be buying a more powerful one anyway. My recommend buy the higher wattage power supply now.

There are some good buys available for CPU's and you should also take a look at the MoBo and CPU combination packages. The second thought is that if you need storage space opt for the primary C:\ drive to be an SSD of say 240 GB, and make the 500 GB HDD the D:\ storage drive. The SSD's are much faster than HDD's I saw an ad this morning for a 240 GB SSD for only $65. So shop around. A good place to start is to search for the various components you want on amazon.com. Just do a search for each component you want to buy. Hope this helps.

  • There was a question 7 years ago about someone not being able to eject a disk from their iMac. Anyways thank you for an easy solution to it?

    CD/DVD's drives all have a small hole in the face plate just below the close/eject button. Take a large paper clip and straighten out the first bend in it so you have about a 2" straight length.

Just push straight back and it should release the tray lock and will open the drive about 1/2" or so. You can now simply pull the drive tray all the way out and retrieve the disk. This should do it. Hope this helps!

  • If I reset laptop to factory setting will I lose "windows"?? It came with the PC. I have already backed up my documents etc.?

    Resetting your pc to factory defaults will not lose Windows but it will erase all of your documents, photos, music, and videos, favorites, etc. Make sure you've backed everything of value to you. Normally, the way you do a "reset" as you call it is to perform a RECOVERY. Go into the Windows Control Panel and find the Recovery icon... show more
    Resetting your pc to factory defaults will not lose Windows but it will erase all of your documents, photos, music, and videos, favorites, etc. Make sure you've backed everything of value to you. Normally, the way you do a "reset" as you call it is to perform a RECOVERY. Go into the Windows Control Panel and find the Recovery icon and double click on it. It will offer you two options. A full Recovery or an opportunity to RESTORE it to an earlier date and/or time, and the restore function does not affect any of your personal files.. Normally you'd do a Restore to take your computer back to a time before you started having problems if that is why you want to "reset" your computer. So think twice and make sure you know what you want to do before you just go ahead and do a Recovery. Hope this helps.

    You'll probably damage your urethra and you're not going to like that because it will be quite painful and will last several days. A foley uses a "water balloon" on the inside of your bladder to hold it in place. If you try to pull that through your urethra you likely do some severe damage either to the urethra or the sphincter muscle that holds your urine in your bladder. I would even think that on the severe side you could cause yourself to be incontinent permanently. It's simply not worth trying. I had to wear one for a week once and they are not fun. However, enduring the period you doctor recommends is the best policy.

    Nope! Had you brought the computer back to them and it happened then they obviously would be responsible. Since you decided to do the RAM install yourself you removed any responsibility from them. Your only recourse with them would be if you can show that the spark that occurred was because of something that they did wrong and not from your being careless or inept at computer repair and/or upgrade. If the spark was powerful enough to "nearly kill" you then there should be burn traces inside the computer. The location of burn traces may prove that they built the computer incorrectly, it was a faulty component they installed, or it may show that you didn t have a clue about what you were doing.

  • How to get Peach mush out of laptop?

    Buy a can of compressed air and blow the "mush" out of the connector. Do it until nothing comes out anymore. There is no place for the mush to go but out since the connector is dead-ended at the wire so don't be worried about it gunking up the connector. Hope this help.

    You cannot. Ethernet is the default if a cable is plugged in to the 10/100 connector. Ethernet is faster than WiFi.

  • I got a HP notebook for christmas. It is extremely slow in all that it does. I can't find the problem. I am not a computer genius but?

    I'll speak to what I feel are the two most common causes of a slow computer. (1) When the manufacturer or you install software, the software will generally install a small file that gets placed in the Start Up menu and it sits there and runs all of the time unless you turn it off.

    I'll speak to what I feel are the two most common causes of a slow computer. (1) When the manufacturer or you install software, the software will generally install a small file that gets placed in the Start Up menu and it sits there and runs all of the time unless you turn it off. As an example: if you have MS Office you'll probably find that it has a file running in the Start Up menu. All these little files actually do is help boot the program up a little quicker if you run the program by clicking on an icon. It's safe to turn off most, if not all, of the software other than your antivirus or anti-malware programs. These are the files that I allow to boot at start up: Norton Security Suite, Advanced System Care, and a CPU temperature monitoring program. I don't allow any other software to boot up. So here's how to do it: Right click on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Click on Task Manager. In the small window that opens up click on the Startup tab at the top of the window. On a program that you don't want or need running simply disable it. To do that click on the software name once to hilite it. Now look in the lower fight hand corner of that window and click on Disable. Repeat this procedure for all software that you don't want to boot at start up. (2) The second item is if you have an Hard Disk Drive (HDD) an not a Solid State Drive (SSD). The data on an HDD gets very fragmented under normal use. A HDD should, in my mind, be defragmented at least two to three times a week. Summary: Clean up your boot/start up items, and make it a point to defrag your HDD at least a couple of times a week. A good little program to defrag you computer is on download.com and it's called Smart Defrag. Get it, install it, and use it regularly. The more you use it the more organized your HDD will remain. Hope this helps.

    Solid State Drives (SSD's) are substantially faster than the typical Hard Disk Drive (HDD's). I'm sure that is what he was referring to.

Once I do that, I have two files with exactly the same name but with different extensions. One is .doc and the second is .pdf I personally don't know of a way to convert a .jpg or .jpeg to a pdf file. Hope this helps some.
