How To Delete "autorun.inf" Virus?

Autorun.inf is the file that tells the USB what do when you plug it into the computer. (like a CD when you put it into your computer). Try having a look at hidden folders and files and stuff. You can try to use microsoft security essentials. I scanned one of my pendrive and it detected the autorun.inf virus from the pendrive and asked me to clean my computer so i clicked it and i think it removed it but if it is quarantined you have to go to the history and removed it from there.Microsoft security essentials detected the autorun.inf virus in my pendrive... but in your friend's hdd maybe it should detect it too... so i guess that you should ask your friend to try to use microsoft security essentials to remove it. One simple tweak you can try: REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf] @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"
That simple registry tweak will prevent a similar file from ever triggering again.
Or you can try some software's:

  • Malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/
  • Combofix: http://www.combofix.org/

Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate showing 3.24 GB Usable Memory

Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate showing 3.24 GB Usable Memory


According to Microsoft's own knowledge base article 929605, all 32-bit versions of Vista support up to 4GB of memory, but the actual usable address space will be less than 4GB. The reason for this is that a section of the memory is set aside for memory map interfaces. This is generally a space that is set aside to ensure driver compatibility and the amount used will vary depending upon the devices installed in the system. Typically, a system with 4GB of RAM will report only 3.5GB of addressable space.

If a computer has many installed devices, the available memory may be reduced to 3 GB or less. However, the maximum memory available in 32-bit versions of Windows Vista is typically 3.12 GB.

This same limitation apllies to Windows 7 32 bit

But this is not the case for the 64-bit flavor of Windows 7. The Home Basic and Starter SKUs can manage up to 8 GB of RAM, with Home Premium taking the limit to 16 GB. The Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate versions of Windows 7 will support as much as 192 GB of RAM.

  • A 32-bit OS can only address about 3 GB of memory. You need to install a 64-bit OS if you have 4 GB or more of memory! 
  • You can use 64-bit OS with less than 4 GB of memory, just need to make sure your processor is 64-bit compatible. You need to get 64-bit Windows
  • There are some hacks that claim to make 32-bit windows use more than 4GB RAM. I have never used them but you might want to take a look if you don't wish to use 64-bit OS yet.
  • Technically, a computer supporting hardware-enabled Data Execution Prevention (DEP) can use more than 4 GB by utilizing the 36-bit physical addressing mode (PAE) while running a 32-bit OS.
  • The type of processor needed to support the Physical Address Extension. ("a computer supporting hardware-enabled DEP")
    Using the PAE mode kernel on systems running 32-bit version OS requires a processor with an architecture that supports hardware-enforced DEP such as the Intel Pentium Pro or later.

    You are referring to the unrelated software-enforced DEP which is a memory protection feature that is built into the Windows OS.

    In addition, it is only "flaky and unworkable" if one doesn't make sure that the drivers and devices are not set to be compatible; which I pointed out, as well as added that it is far more advisable to simply use a 64-bit OS.

    Furthermore, all of this was in response to the following quote to show that it is possible (although not viable) that a 32-bit OS can break the infamous folly of the 4GB memory limit.

    "A 32-bit OS can only address about 3 GB of memory. You need to install a 64-bit OS if you have 4 GB or more of memory!"

Possibility to selectively pass connections through VPN?

Possibility to selectively pass connections through VPN?

I have been trying to find a way to selectively pass connections through VPN but so far haven't found a way.
Certain sites (ie some filehosts, imagehosts etc) are blocked were I am. I use proxy servers in conjunction with Foxyproxy to selectively pass these through proxies.
I do not wish to go through proxies for ALL my connections for the reasons of speed and security.
I can get a VPN account but.....is there a way to the same as above with a VPN connection?

How To Download Videos From 4oD ?

I have tried using IDM but it can't 'grab' the videos form 4oD
www.channel4.com/programmes/4od 
 but you probably need a Url catcher to see what the Url of the video is, then a stream catcher recorder software to record it with.

How To Recover Data From External Hard Disc (hdd)

How To Recover Data From External Hard Disc (hdd)

How To Recover Data From External Hard Disc (hdd)

I've tried easeus and stellar pheonix data recovery programs neither works. I perform the longer scan and when it's done there aren't any files displayed just a blank list. It's a wd 500gb passport. When I can get the hdd to connect it says its unallocated, most of the time the drive won't even show up in device manager.

1. This recovery app:

http://www.rmp2.com/fosidir/temp/fo-e621.zip

Use the RawRecovery method, No need to let it scan for hours if not needed, Just follow
the progress, If you see it doesn't find any files after a few minutes, Abort. Do note that because
this method ignores the file system, If it'd be able to find your files, They won't have their original
names.

2. As I previously suggested, Buy the same external purely for enclosure swapping purposes, Yeah it's
not a sure thing as we don't know whether the enclosure or hdd itself are at fault,But it's very affordable and might do the trick,If that won't work, Buy a set of TORX screwdrivers and swap the PCB's (electronic board) T9 in specific is used on HDDs,If still no goes, Maybe a fully identical PCB will help, Will cost you some money but not too much, Ask for it here::
http://forum.hddguru.com/hard-drive-market-f15.html

You should include the following details in your post:

1. The full model name (I.E WD2500BMVU-11A04S0)
2. P/N or R/N numbers (whichever available)
3. DCM
4. The PCB's serial number (appears on a sticker on the electronics side)
How to install Windows 8 Dev Preview on VMWare Player?

How to install Windows 8 Dev Preview on VMWare Player?

Just downloaded Windows 8 Dev Preview (32 bit). I don't have an extra box, so I figured I would just install it under VMWare player. Using the Win7 option in VMWare was a no-go, and when I tried to install as an "other" OS, it failed. Any idea if it's possible to install under VMWare Player? Or maybe another virtual machine software running under windows 7?

You should either go with Oracle VM VirtualBox (as recommended by Roberto) or VMWare Workstation.

I know people who have installed Windows 8 on both of those VM's.

For the most part, VMWare Workstation is probably a better product, mostly because there is paid development behind it, but VirtualBox is open source software and works pretty good.

If you are just looking to play around with VM's, VirtualBox is a good choice. I have used both. I made the switch to Oracle VM VirtualBox when Ubuntu 11.04 came out because VMWare had a bug with Unity in their VM that VirtaulBox did not.

Checksum Error-  "The Witcher 2 Assassins of King

Checksum Error- "The Witcher 2 Assassins of King

I have downloaded the game and mounted the ISO on daemon tools.
So after installing for around 25 minutes, it gave me an error message of "Checksum Error".
So I copied the data of ISO file on my Hard Disk and then started the setup from there.
But then again I got a new error as "some alien language. then Unarc.dll, then Error: file write operation failed."

The Witcher 2 Graphics and Requirments


I have a GT 520M at 1 GB, a 4 GB RAM and a core i5-2410M at 2.3 Ghz, but it boosts to 2.9.

Now i know if u never tried this card before and just read the reviews about it you'd think it's a ~love~ card, i thought so when i bought it and never had gaming in mind. but believe it or not, it can run assassin's creed 1 and Mafia 2 on highest settings at 1366x768, i can run Crysis 2 at advanced which is medium in the Crysis world, as well as GTA IV on medium but i turn the resolution on to the max.

Now the question is, at what settings exactly would i be able to play the witcher 2, and would it look god or would it be ~love~ and not worth the time downloading it?
