Always Start Task manager in admin mode

April 20, 2014 1 comment

Scenario : You start task manager by right-clicking on the taskbar or by pressing Alt-Ctrl-Del but it always starts in standard mode and does not show processes from all users. You have to click on the button to make it show all and that too, you want the setting to be retained every time you start Task Manager.

Solution : By default, Task Manager does not start in admin mode. When you launch it, it usually starts as shown below and you have to click on the ‘Show processes from all users’ button to show all the processes. While this does work, it does not always start the task manager showing these processes so what do you do ??

September 9, 2012 4 comments

Scenario contd… : You have obtained the highly anticipated game : Batman Arkham City. It is over 14 GB’s in Size. You have fiiiiiiiiiinally downloaded it. You install it…which takes a looooooooooong time. Finally it’s done!!!! Now you try to run it…and what’s this ?? A Message box pops up saying something like “Fatal Error”. Its Hellish, ain’t it ??

Solution contd…: This is the follow up to my previous post. While the above error appears when you try to run the game, sometimes the error pops up after you have properly run the game and completed a fair percentage of the story-line. You have gone through my previous post but DirectX is already updated and the solution does not work. so what do you do ??  Unfortunately, the answer is simple but not easy.

Scenario : You have obtained the highly anticipated game : Batman Arkham City. It is over 14 GB’s in Size. You have fiiiiiiiiiinally downloaded it. You install it…which takes a looooooooooong time.

Print Locked PDF files

January 11, 2012 2 comments

Scenario : You have downloaded a file from the internet and you liked it and want to print some parts of it. But the print function has been disabled. You try copying the text but even copying is disabled. What do you do ??

Solution : You know how it is, when the pdf files are just about 10 or 15 pages long, you go ahead and print them out to read later on.(That’s a bad habit btw, save paper)

However many times you find that the print function has been disabled. You see, this happens cos the person who created it has password protected the document to disallow certain functions like printing copying. Don’t you hate that ?? I mean if you can open and read the PDF, then you should be able to print it for reference later on. Right ?? (Answer: Right!!! Be with me guys…)

So when I received such a PDF last week that was like this I was determined to find a way to get around it.

Here’s what I found…. Read more…

MultiColor Screen of Death

July 7, 2011 1 comment

Time for Some fun ?? Ok ?? What is the thing which scares even the most hardcore Windows users. It tends to appear at the worst possible times, and whats worse is that, the explanation for its appearance is so obscure that i’m sure that even the people at Microsoft do not know what’s going on. That’s right, a windows users worst fear, i’m talking about … the Blue Screen of Death (commonly known as BSOD).

True, that appearance of BSOD has so much as minimised in Windows 7 but it still does happen. In this tutorial, I’m not going to teach you how to avoid it but turn your BSoD into a RSOD, GSoD, YSoD or pretty much any SoD you wish. Yes, any color you wish.

Why? Just for fun. Read more…
