Usually we access different networks in our Local Network in the office. Not only local networks, but even web sites and programs that stores our login credentials. For the easy access sake, we usually select the “Save Password” thing so we can access to that network easily the next time we visited it without prompting to enter another username and password.

But what if you have the need to clear these kinds of things, lets say, if there is some changes on the access level that needs to change your restriction. How can we reset it to prompt its Username/Password window again? It’s easy! Just do this step below and you’ll be entering the new username and password in no time.

  • Click START
  • Go to RUN
  • Copy and paste this text in the textbox without the parenthesis (rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr)
  • Click Ok

You should already saw this picture below. Click on the address that you wanted to edit or delete. Or you can manually add another logon credentials in this window. Goodluck! 🙂

It came up to my attention that my hard disk is nearly out of space so i need to check up my unused files and delete it permanently so i can save some space. Then after setting my folder options to see all things that are hidden, I have found out that there is a file named “hiberfil.sys” in my C: drive that took up 2gb of my hard disk space. Until i researched, what does “hiberfil.sys” do?

Hiberfil.sys “is the support file for the hibernation feature in Windows. When your system goes into hibernation, Windows writes a complete copy of RAM to the file hiberfil.sys.” – http://ask-leo.com

So basically, you will be needing this file if you are fond of using the hibernation feature of Windows. In my case, im not… so, here’s what i’ve did.

cmd

Accessing the command prompt as admin

* Click Start;
* now find your command prompt (cmd.exe) on your list of programs;
* and you must run it as the administrator. (In my case, i was the administrator, BUT still as a USER on my system) so i need to right click the cmd.exe and select Run as administrator;
* (or if you are the admin, you could just type the cmd in the RUN)

* while you are on the cmd prompt window, just type in “powercfg.exe -h off” (without the quotes) and click enter.
* the effect cannot be seen until you restart your system. After you have restarted, the hiberfil.sys will be gone and olah! free spaces for your drive c!

If you are wondering where the hiberfil.sys is located, there is another system file that is as BIG as much as hiberfil.sys right? It is the pagefile.sys..

Well to describe what is a pagefile.sys is, taken from Ask-leo.com – “Pagefile.sys is the Windows paging file, also known as the file that Windows uses as Virtual Memory. Virtual Memory is simply disk space that Windows uses when it runs out of physical memory or RAM.”

It means that if your PC has no virtual memory, PC applications that requires more memory than your actual memory have installed, they will just crash and fail.. Well, I don’t have any complaints on what virtual memory does to my system since it HELPS.. so i will leave this at ease. (Don’t wanna crash my pc applications just not having a virtual memory..)  🙂

Have you experience using a computer then suddenly a blue screen appears with various texts, including a sentence that says physical dumping of memory.. and such? This error only appears at computers running in a Windows environment. Tech people usually call this the “BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH” because when the error occurs, the display will turn blue, the PC will freeze and will require rebooting. Making you lose any unsaved work. Your PC could be suffering from RAM problems or registry errors.

 

Prescription:

–          For the employees who are working in a company, call your IT support. They work great on these. 🙂

–          Run a full scan to check for any conflicts in your PC. Corruption of your registry is a possible reason.

–          Regular defragging and reformatting can also help in preventing this from occurring.

–          You might want to try to use a tool called ‘registry cleaner’ to go through your system and fix all the problems that are in there.

–          For individuals at home, before taking you computer to the computer technician, take note of the texts on the screen and browse the Net for other possible solutions.

1. The default speed of the Start Menu is pretty slow, but you can fix that by editing a Registry Key. Fire up the Registry Editor and navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop \ MenuShowDelay By default, the value is 400. Change this to a smaller value, such as 0, to speed it up.

2. If your confounded by the slow speed of the Start Menu, even after using the tip above, then you might try the following: Navigate to Display Properties then Appearance then Advanced and turn off the option titled Show menu shadow . You will get much better overall performance.

1. Click the Start button, click Search.
2. In the Search Window, click All file types.
3. Then type *.scr in the search input
4. Check Local Hard Drives. ( Drive C or the drive where you have system files stored on your computer)
5. Click Search.
6. You will see a list of screensavers in the results. Pick a screensaver you want. You can preview it by double-clicking it.
7. Right click on the file, choose Send To, and then click Desktop (create shortcut).
8. To activate the screensaver, double-click the icon on your desktop
