    Windows 8 "full screen browser" no maleware and spyware?

    What's the best way to disable scripts in Chrome? I use Firefox sometimes with noscript. The problem is I go to so many sites that it's useless since almost every site doesn't load properly and it ends up wasting a lot of time (especially if it's for work)

    Windows 8 "full screen browser" no maleware and spyware?

    Is there any reason why someone can't write an app to be more like Windows 8 mobile or any other mobile OS where that can't happen at all? It would be nice to be able to have some family members only browse with that web browser, so there are simply no infections possible short of actually...

    Windows 8 "full screen browser" no maleware and spyware?

    If you are using Windows 8 in the full screen side and running the Chrome app, or Explorer app, etc. Is it not all integrated like the regular windows side, so it's more like Android, Windows mobile, and iOS, where you don't get infected by maleware, viruses, spyware, etc? Or since it's...

    New Laptop Win 7 - Cheapest way to get Win 8 on it?

    Is $139 the cheapest way I can put Windows 8 on my new laptop since Microsoft no longer is doing the update? I mistakenly ordered my Alienware m14x with Windows 7 instead of 8! :( It should arrive in a day or 2 now. If the laptop is good, I don't want to send it back and wait another 3 weeks or...

    Windows 8 Pro - Bitlocker vs TruCrypt office desktop?

    I have windows 8 Pro running on my desktop in my office. I'd like to encrypt the drive as I am going to be switching my client medical records to digital and I don't want anyone who steals it to have access to my stuff. The motherboard doesn't have TWP (I didn't think about that when ordering...

    Motherboard is an ASRock H77M and video card is a Power Color 7770 Ghz edition My budget got cut so this is what I have to work with for a processor. I have plenty of power from the PSU in this one. 600Watts and only a single HDD.

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    I will try it in the computer tomorrow when I get to the office. I'm going to hope it works. It was only $40 dollars which wasn't to bad. I'd like to have another name brand one, but I do need the computer up and running to deal with clients. Music in the office is also controlled by the...

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    ASROCK H77M 2 boards ASROCK H77M ITX 1 board The thermaltake fit onto the board just fine. The only issue was with the fan, but this isn't a power build. It's for spread sheets, scheduling, web browsing, facebook, etc.

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    the plastic is to large and doesn't fit into the holes into 3 different mother boards. It's effectively useless so it's going back to Newegg. I did manage to get it to fit one older board by taking a piece of plastic and a 2.5LB weight and hammering it on for fun. It took off the connector from...

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    I have a Corsair CX series that the 24pin doesn't fit motherboards because it was made out of spec. I still have to send that one back to Newegg.

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    The Geek squad guy told me he has seen his friends light on fire of that model! :O Maybe this is a common problem with this model? I picked up a cheap Dynex 400W and saved $11 haha I'm only running an i3 8GB RAM, 1 HDD and 3 case fans.

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    This is a new PSU I got from Best Buy after the one I purchased from Newegg was out of spec on the 24pin so it wouldn't fit onto a board properly. I'll see what else Best Buy has as I need one. This is currently to loud to have in my office.

    PSU is loud. tipping it makes it quiet for a few minutes, then it gets loud again?

    I have a Thermaltake TR2 430W. The fan on it is very quiet, but then it gets very loud. tipping the case to the side makes it quiet for a while, but then it gets loud again. Is this a bad PSU?

    ASROCK H77M help needed

    Another friend came over with another PSU to test it. We've verified this is now the 3rd H77M that isn't working. I will try to exchange this one more time, then I'm going to switch Mobos.

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    Yeah, I checked several times to make sure it was the correct set of jumpers. I decided to return the case and motherboard. I'm just going to buy an ITX size case and Mobo after that. This case was larger then I wanted anyways. It won't give me 2 separate UPS printouts and of course I don't...

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    I tried the new PSU and it works the same as the first one it seems. I can very rarely get it to boot with the screwdriver by the + - for the power switch. The only way I can always turn it on is by removing the clear CMOS jumper and using the screw driver on the reset far right and middle...

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    If take it to a shop I might as well spent more money on a prebuilt. I didn't see what I wanted though. Ill figure this out I hope. Ill try PSU first and Mobo after that. Now I'm afraid to do an RMA with newegg after seeing things all over the web about them claiming damages. I wish I saw that...

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    What would cause the Mobo to lose its settings without the use of the jumper? This is the first time I've experienced this before.

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    The mono also seems like it is bent down on the far left side. When I was pressing down on the 24 pin I did put cardboard under it so I wouldn't bend or snap the Mobo. When the pc was running it ran perfect. It did turn on most of the time but now I can't really get it to turn on. For the...

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    i have the mobo on cardboard with only the RAM, CPU, and HDD hooked up. Using a screw driver I was able to make it turn on once, but I haven't been able to get it to turn on a 2nd time.

    Computer won't turn on sometimes, sometimes BIOS reset?

    The 24pin is something I am having issues with it. It goes in so hard that I can not push it in with my bare hands.I can push it 95% of the way onto it, but getting the snap part to go over just isn't working. I have no way of telling which is out of spec though. It's definitely not going...

    Vista to be discontinued in 2008?

    People have wanted 64bit software since windows 2000 64bit. Then it was Windows XP, now it MIGHT be Vista. Whenever I hear the 64bit guys I have to wonder when is it actually going to get here.
