    Hi,

    Troubleshooting Windows 7 freezing and being slow is quite different. Is Windows 7 freezing (becoming unresponsive) or just going slow?

    If it’s just going slow, is it during the use of certain applications or as soon as you boot up Windows 7?

    Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Esc to show theTask Manager and clicking on the Performance tab. Do you have issues with CPU, RAM or something else such as disk or network?

    If you have CPU or memory issues, you can use the Processes tab to see what process is using all the CPU / memory and troubleshoot the application at fault from there. If it’s just generally slow, maybe you need more RAM or a faster computer?

    If this doesn’t highlight the problem you can use perfmon to see other performance counters to help you troubleshoot the slowness.

    If Windows 7 is freezing, what’s freezing? Is it when you run a particular program or as soon as Windows boots? Have you recently installed a new driver, piece of hardware or Windows update?

    Hi Prncaggarwal,

    Welcome to IT Support Forum!

    So you want to secure your WordPress installation from hackers? That’s quite a broad subject as there are many different types of hacking out there.

    First of all, getting the right host is the most important. This not only effects the speed of your WordPress website, but also your security. If your host isn’t patching their servers or isn’t configuring their firewalls correctly, then your WordPRess website is not secure against hackers. I highly recommend Fast WP Hosting, they’re cheap, fast and secure.

    Secondly, there are plugins you can get for WordPress security, such as Better WP Security that can secure your website or Limit Login Attempts, which protects you from brute force attacks.

    Thirdly, you should ensure that you update WordPress so you’re always running the latest version.

    Finally, you need to ensure that you install WordPress with the correct file and folder permissions.

    These things should help to secure your WordPress website from hackers.

    I suppose if the battery wasn’t connected properly, you would have other problems than an alert saying that the installed battery may not be properly connected to the computer; The computer would be powering off, failing to charge and all sorts…

    If you don’t get any issues with the battery, perhaps it’s a broken sensor in the laptop / battery (warrantee repair?) or the ISB Utility is just rubbish :p

    Thanks for sharing the fix, Jonathon 🙂

    When I type the new Directory Services restore mode password, nothing comes up. Is that normal?

    It’s also best practice to run the Database Upgrade Adviser against the database you are migrating, if moving to a different version of SQL.

    If your TMI.cfg file specifies:

    CFG_DM_DB_DSN=Server=<>

    Then you need to change the parameter to the name of the new SQL server as well.

    You can not verify self-signed deployment rule set jar when you don’t have the certificate installed, that was used to sign the jar file. Install the cert to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities and you will no longer get the error.

    For me, the best CPU is the fastest all rounder. I guess what I’m asking is what’s the fastest CPU of 2014 and why?

    Turns out that this is caused by the Long Time not being set to display AM or PM in the Control Panel -> Date and Time settings. Changing this fixes the issue.

    in reply to: How To Backup Printer Installer (Printer Logic) #150

    Here’s a script that I use as a scheduled task to backup the Printer Installer database:

    del "D:\Backup\backup1.sql"
    move "D:\Backup\backup.sql" "D:\Backup\backup1.sql"
    cd "C:\Program Files\mysql\mysql server 5.5\bin"
    mysqldump --user=root --password=InsertYourPasswordHere --single-transaction --add-drop-database printer_installer > D:\Backup\backup.sql

    You may wish to change the settings to reflect your database (How to get your Printer Installer password and other database settings)

    I schedule this to run every day. It keeps the last two backups (the idea being that at least one days worth of backups will the kept on tape, in the instance that it’s being backed up while it’s being written to tape and therefore avoids locked file / corruption issues.

    You also need to backup the wwwroot folder on your Printer Installer server. I take a copy of the produced backup*.sql files created by the script and the wwwroot folder to tape.

    Thanks, it seems that Windows 7 crashing on the startup logo screen was caused by an update to my graphics card driver. I booted to save mode and reverted the driver – everything works fine now 🙂

    I don’t have System Protection set up.

    Yes, it boots past the logo screen in safe mode, but crashes without safe mode.

    in reply to: What Is The Best SEO Plugin For WordPress? #82

    My favourite SEO WordPress plugins are:

    • All-in-One-SEO-Pack
    • Google XML Sitemaps

    All-in-one-SEO-pack is brilliant, it lets you set WebMaster Tools and Analytics settings for your WordPress site along with default settings for meta tags or specific ones for each page. What more could you want?

    Google XML Sitemaps is also brilliant, it automatically builds a new sitemap each time you create a new post, gzips it and informs all the major search engines that there’s an update.
