Windows 7 in Axioo MNC016

Today I’d like to share with the readers about my first look about Windows 7 that already pre-Order with about $50 to upgrade from windows XP or Vista. Since Windows 7 into the pre-beta, Microsoft revealed a second lot about how Windows 7 will be better than the various versions of Windows earlier. In the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC), Microsoft explains how Windows 7 is designed to complete the boot / shutdown faster and consume less power than the Vista operating system even though they actually have the same foundation.

windows7_beta_boot_screenWindows 7  boot and shutdown faster is just one of many aspects of performance improvement which already promised by Steve Sinofsky. Microsoft can reach the boot time faster through a variety of ways:

  • Reducing the number of system services
  • Reduce power consumption CPU, hard disk (HD) and system memory required service
  • Optimization drivers
  • Starting some services and drivers in parallel
  • Optimize prefetching for HD or SSD

Although we have previously discussed how Windows 7 will be more power efficient, WinHEC conference provides lebh detailed information about how Microsoft achieve this. Some of them are power consumption less when using a wireless network and some kernel optimization that allows the CPU to operate in lower frequencies and have a longer idle time. The end result is the battery life is better than 11% to 15% better than Vista – Windows 7 pre-beta, the final version would be even better.

Solved: Cannot Start Windows XP Firewall

In the first day at work after my long year end holiday, one of my client could not share his printer to the network, but his PC was noticable from the network. It also could not be pinged but it could ping other PC on the network.

The firt step I took was opening the Windows Firewall, but it gave me a notification that the firewall service was not activated and asked me to start it. I did it, but it gave me a warning that the service can not be started.

I found an easy solution from this forum. I just need to run this command:

netsh winsock reset

and then restart the PC.

Done.

That’s all. The problem was solved.

StaffCop, Where nothing to hide

StaffCopAre you a CEO, Manager, The Owner of a company who need to spy your employee. I give you the perfect software to spy and monitoring all you employee and the name is StaffCop. According to my opinion, when a CEO or Business Owner cannot trust their own employee, I think you should fired them, not by spying and monitoring their work. But, if you want to develop your employee to become a good worker, yes this software was match for you.

What CEO need to monitoring the employee, I give you some parameters :

  1. To know what programs they use.
  2. When they opened the application and what they do with it, including time tracking how they spend their working hours.
  3. Internet activities.
  4. Remote their screen.
  5. What’s inside their chat log.

Personally, I like this software because it can installed remotely and hide from user by default. This features makes me easier to install to many client, because it takes a lot of time and client will know if I install a spy software in their PC or laptop. As a admin I can manage all of the PC at the office by using single PC on my own PC at my desk.

All of the needed has already full fill by this StaffCop software. The second problems is about the price,I think it’s reasonable because StaffCop has several grade and of course whe you bought more license then the cheaper price can take. It’s all your choices, have a nice try. You must try it first before you decide to bought software.

[Resolved]: Can Not Run Any Windows Command Prompt

Last day I got a problem with my laptop. I could not run any windows command prompt, such as ping, nslookup and tracert. I restarted it and gave no solution, the problem was still remain.

Command Not Working

I found this page on Google. It told me that Windows can not resolve the %SystemRoot% Environment Variable that can be checked by running “path” command. It returned:

%SystemRoot%system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%System32Wbem;C:Program
FilesATI TechnologiesATI Control Panel;

To solution for this problem was founded here where the step by step is instructed below.

  1. Go to: Start > Run > Regedit
  2. Check: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerEnvironment
    Make sure that the registry key holding the path is of Reg_Expand_SZ type rather Reg_SZ type
  3. If the holding key is Reg_SZ change it into Reg_Expand_SZ by:
    • Double Click “Path” and copy it’s Data Value “…%SystemRoot%system32;%SystemRoot%; …” to avoid to rewrite it again
    • Delete the “Path”
    • Create New > Expandable String Value
    • Give “Path” as the name, double click it, and Paste the value copied in the previous step to the “Value Data” field
  4. Close the Regedit window and restart the laptop

Once the Windows is finish from loading, the command prompt works again.

Command Works Again

Norton Ghost 2003 and SATA

I just installed a new PC (with Windows) and wanted to backup the C (System) drive using Norton Ghost 2003. Don’t ask me why I am still using the old version instead of the new one, since this is the only one I have in my hand. The installation was just fine as well as the backup setting, then it asked me to reboot the PC. OK. Click and reboot..

After the blank screen, the ghost process notified me that there was an error and can not continue the task. It asked me to run “ghreboot“. No doubt, I run it and nothing happened.

Norton Ghost help on the web returned me nothing, except that the problem is caused by a virtual partition created by Norton Ghost as an active partition. I contacted my old friend asking for this problem and gave me a direction.  He said that Norton Ghost 2003 is not compatible with SATA devices.

Here is how to solve the problem if you face it.

  1. Boot from any bootable CD from where you can run fdisk
  2. After it give you a command prompt, run: fdisk
  3. Choose to display partition and you will see a partition labeled : —VPGHOST
  4. Delete this partition
  5. Activate your Bootable Partition
  6. Exit fdisk
  7. Reboot

Voila. You should notice your Windows loading screen. Then you can install the new version of Norton Ghost :D

Warning:  Use it at your own risk. I used Windows XP and Windows 98 for the Boot CD.
