Computer Help / Re: Paged Pool used 9 GB RAM all time!
« Last post by Angelika on June 14, 2020, 01:14:36 AM »
Generally, I don't have problems with Chrome if I set up a huge swap file.
For small SSDs, setting a large virtual file will run out of space for other programs and files.
You can have up to 32 / 64 / 128 GB RAM, but Chrome will still need to set up a huge swap file. Implementation of separate memory processes means it uses lots of memory when you open many tabs. This can cause performance hiccups for users who donít have enough PAGE FILE on their computers. So if the page file is so slow, why even have it? Without a page file, your applications will crash or seriously malfunction, as any additional information that needs to be stored in RAM will simply be lost. Having a bit of slowdown to handle peak RAM demands is better than having the system go down as a whole.

IE is an outdated browser and most sites that I use no longer support this browser and will not open the page!


All extensions are very bad because they add the extension address to the address and modify it, you don't know exactly what the address is.
And no automatic loading when you click the tab.
As I need freezing, not suspend.

Computer Help / Re: Replace damaged files in Windows 7
« Last post by Boggin on June 13, 2020, 02:11:03 PM »
It's unfortunate that you don't have a Win 7 install disk as you could have booted up with that and performed what I call an offboot sfc /scannow where it checks your system files against the install disk.

I could send you a couple of install disks but because I live on my own and currently have severe back problems, I would be unable to get to the Post Office.

However, if you say which version of Win 7 x64 you have and PM me your address, I'll see what I can arrange.

As things stand though, the only other option you have if you are using a branded machine would be to factory reset after backing up your personal stuff onto something like an external HDD or suitably sized USB flash drive.

If I can get those disks off to you (one spare), I'll post details in your thread for how to perform an offboot sfc /scannow.

I don't suppose you know anyone who does have an install disk that you could borrow ?

It doesn't have to be the same version as yours as long as it's a higher version - a Win 7 x64 Pro version will repair a x64 Home Premium version.

The Win 7 x64 ISO I have is that for Pro but by removing the eicfg file, that converts it to an universal install disk where you could perform a clean install of all x64 versions.

With that you can also perform a repair install which doesn't affect your personal stuff or installed programs, but if you are using a branded machine you would have to change the product key to what is on the sticker as you are prompted to enter the product key, but as machines age, that can become faded - I made a hard copy of mine while it could still be read.

You can change the product key by pressing the Windows key and r together then type Slui 3 into the Run box and press enter where you will be presented with the format to enter the key which should confirm that it has been registered.

I think I'll leave any investigations until I install it again, but it hasn't appeared in updates yet.

Computer Help / Replace damaged files in Windows 7
« Last post by pin12 on June 13, 2020, 08:19:20 AM »
Hello!!  :cheesy:


I love Windows Repair software and I usually use it when I have an internet connection problem. Today I used it to repair Windows 7 safe mode. It did perfectly. Thanks for this excellent software.

I have Windows 7 SP1 x64 installed on a Toshiba notebook, but I was having a problem, because it seems that some malware or virus damaged some files. I ran sfc/ scannow several times but it resulted in unable to repair some corrupted files.

What I need is software that verifies absolutely the entire system, every file, even the registry, and replace the damaged components with intact original components. Even if I could get those components from an online database it would be great, since I don't have the Windows 7 installer disk. Ok, that's the idea.

Thanks for any help about it. :smiley:

Program & Site Requests / Re: CLEANMEM program update
« Last post by Willy2 on June 13, 2020, 08:07:58 AM »
@Boggin:
- I know that there is a version v2.51 of the CLEANMEM program. Where has that version gone ? Because when I download the program it tells me "v2.50".

(More CLEANMEM suggestions will follow, when time permits)

This machine while being updated from Win 7 has worked well on Win 10 until this latest update.

When I earlier updated through the MCT I don't think I had any problems but didn't have it on long enough to find out before I restored back to 1909 because of the reported bugs.

This didn't start freezing until the day after, so I don't know what brought that on.

It seemed to resolve for a while after I performed a Start-up Repair but it started to freeze again, even though I had time to run the Windows Memory Diagnostic on both RAM sticks separately.

I checked Device Manager for an update but it said the latest one was already installed, even though it's dated 2011 which is when the machine was bought.
I think i desactivated the onboard(MB Asus Z87Pro ) Realtek integrated audio/Drivers when they were not anymore so often updated( perhaps in 2019)
when the Microsoft Drivers had to be WHQL certified to run on fresh install of win10 (by Windows Hardware Developer Center Dashboard ) had been put in place by Microsoft in a purpose to avoid interences between old/not often updated corrupting the kernel
that kind of worries(french version) : https://support.microsoft.com/fr-fr/help/4529832/updating-to-windows-10-version-1903-on-devices-with-some-driver-versio
