Windows 7 history and other things need help

June 20th, 2018

Hey all.
I’m using windows 7 64bit pro edition and i’m having some queries about it.
First off, i would like to know how to erase the history on the top right corner, where it has a search box in ‘windows explorer’. I do not want to disable the funciton completely, just the easier way to clear its history.
Secondly, when i press “down” arrow into the address bar of windows explorer (when its an empty field), i get a whole drop box of things i don’t want to see at all. how do i erase this from showing?
Also, when i goto start>run, theres a history in there, and when i press , say the letter d it’ll show a few paths starting with d:/ and i wish to not have this.
Lastly, when ever i type somethign in the start menu to search for programs, its brilliant i love it. But how do you control that it’ll just search for programs and not pictures, files and etc? It is abit annoying having to type “J” or “IMG” and all your pictures comes up.
Sorry if i was not clear enough :S Thanks for help!

Hey , you could try Ccleaner. Just google it and try the first hit. Just download it. It’s total free ware which empties your bin, cleans your history and search results and stuff. Before using it try checking if the correct configuration is set. Like incase you don’t want it to clean your bin.
Although, for some reason I can’t get it fully properly working on My pc with W7. It doesn’t fully clear my internet history, but all other things it does.
Ohyeah, it also is updated with W7 stuff, it also cleans jumplists. If you don’t want it to do that, untick the box.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the quick response man!
I will look into that program really soon. But I (being a curious one ) would like to know how to do it manually. Especially since some folders i have it NOT indexed it still shows up on start menu search

Offline Intel Utility

June 20th, 2018

Hi. I have been looking for an offline Intel Update utility. I have googled as well as gone to the Intel website. I have not found one yet but I do know that there is one available. Have had to recently re-install Windows and I don’t have the driver CD anylonger. Am looking for the utility that would tell me what graphics drivers I can install as well as what wireless drivers to install. Will then be able to download from alternate operating system, transfer .exe files, then install on current off-line (recently ree-installed )Windows 7 64 bit. Would like to know if anyone has been able to find this utility as I have not had much success. Or perhaps I am just not seeing it correctly while googling. Thank you in advance.
Answer #1
Seeing as you have internet access you can always go to your motherboards manufacturers website and download the latest drivers for your motherboard from there.
Though sometimes the manufacturers website could be outdated with the odd chipset and graphics driver you could install those 1st and then you can search for the latest chipset and graphics driver you need.

excellent info
to find out what is in your computer usr the model number or
click the start button and type this in the search box
system information
it has a computer icon …click on it and you will find out what hardware is in your computer
next just follow Lord Alibask’s advice and get the drivers from the manufacturer website
Answer #3
Thanks guys. I managed to get most of the drivers installed including for internet, synaptic pad drivers, and one or 2 others. Actually had to go to the ACER website to download those. Completely forgot about the fact I had to go there.

Seeing if hard-drive or SSD was ever used

June 18th, 2018

so I’m in the process of buying an SSD from a buyer who claims that its never been used and never been plugged in even (although opened). being the paranoid tech that i am, the worst case scenario would be that he planted a keylogger on it of some sort and hid it (in a undetectable partition?).
now i know that storage can almost never be completely erased so is there any way to check if this ssd has truly never been used?

Answer #1
http://www.ghacks.net/2008/06/29/how-many-hours-have-your-hard-disks-been-running/
Will tell you how many power-ups it’s had and how many running hours.
They might be there, if it’s been factory tested, but power-up should be no more than 2 or 3 and running time less than 1 hour (the minimum recorded, I think)
Answer #2
Yes it is in the S.M.A.R.T information that is read only stored in the drive itself.
Another app that can read it is Hard Disk Senti.
A handy app for checking your disks and doing tests.

Answer #3
You could use a Recovery program as well e.g. “Ontrack Easy Recovery Professional”.
You will be able to recover most of what was on the drive even after most formats!

Answer #4
I just look through Google. I have a bookmarklet that opens a dialog box and then goes off and searches for that mp3.
javascript:void(qr=prompt('Mp3%20Search%20Indexer%20-%20Type%20any%20Music%20or%20Album%20Name:%20',''));if(qr)location.href='http://www.google.com/search?&num=100&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&btnG=Google+Search&as_epq=parent+directory=&as_oq=mp3+wma+ogg+anonymous&as_eq=module+modules&lr=&as_ft=i&as_filetype=&as_qdr=all&as_occt=any&as_dt=i&as_sitesearch=&safe=images&as_q='+escape(qr);void%201
Copy and paste that into your address bar and press enter.
