A Sampling Of Some Of The Most Popular Articles At What’s On My PC — and MORE GREAT GEEK SQUEAK STUFF (#2016-03)

A Sampling Of Some Of The Most Popular Articles At What’s On My PC – Each week on the blog I try to provide an array of topics through the Geek Squeaks’ theme. This week I was brain dead and for the life of me nothing was jumping out to get my juices going. In an effort to give myself a jump start, I decided to list some of the most popular articles at What’s On My PC. This not only got my juices going; but, it made me come to the realization that I need to re-think how I am titling my blog articles and still keep within the parameters of my Geek Squeaks’ way of life where I post multiple topics (with one main topic as the attention grabber). As a result, I am going to implement this change to see where it takes me. To get started with this week’s post, I changed the title format; and to get my juices going, I have listed a sampling some of the most popular articles at What’s On My PC. Always remember, you can perform a search to find various topics, software, etc… In the 8 years that I have been blogging, there is a good chance that if you are looking for something, I have covered it in some form or another.

Symptoms of a Failing Computer Power Supply – I discuss some of the symptoms you may experience that could indicate that your power supply is failing. This article was published back in 2010, which seems like yesterday, and much of what is reflected is still applicable today.

Shutdown, Sleep, Restart or Logoff Your Computer Using the Keyboard – Here I did a post about the built in keyboard shortcuts that you can use to shutdown, sleep, restart or logoff your Windows computer. This article is applicable to Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 users. I still get a ton of hits on this one.

Locating Your Software License Keys – Did you know that if you do a complete reinstall of the software on your PC, you will need the product license keys (or serial/registration information) for the software that you had paid for? If you did not know this, then this article will guide you on the various software options that are available that will help you out.

An Easy Way to Get the Serial Number and Disk Drive Information of Your Computer – If you follow the command prompt steps that I have reflected in this article you can get the serial number and disk drive information of your computer.

Get the last FREE version of FastStone Capture – If you do not know what FastStone Capture is, then you are missing out on some good software. This screen capture program, at one point was freeware; however, you now (current version) have to pay for the software (shareware). This is one shareware program that I recommend buying. If you do not wish to buy it, you can still grab the last FREE version.

What does the “G” represent in 3G and 4G? – There is a high probability that you own a cell phone. If so, you have probably questioned, “What is all of this 3G and 4G talk about?”. This article will help you out with this.

MORE GREAT GEEK SQUEAK STUFF

A Package Of More Than 180 Portable Freeware Utilities (for Windows) – If you are the techie type, you probably have heard of the NirSoft utilities. Did you know that these utilities can be downloaded as a package and conveniently launched using what is called the NirLauncher. The NirLauncher package includes variety of tools that you may need for your daily computer use, including utilities to recover lost passwords, to monitor your network, to view and extract cookies, cache, and other information stored by your Web browser, to search files in your system, and more… This is a “must have” for the tech toolbox.

An OS That Will Turn A PC Into An Android PC – I came across a new open source OS (operating system) that can be installed on a compatible PC or run from a flash drive called Remix OS that will turn a PC into an Android based PC. What this means is that you can run the same apps through the Remix OS that you do on your Android based phones and tablets. I will be keeping an eye on this…

Video – How To Install The Remix OS

Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – If you do not own a wireless bluetooth speaker, you do not know what you are missing. Today, I came across an Amazon deal for people like me who is rough on things. It is the Photive HYDRA Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, that is shockproof and waterproof. At the time of this posting, the pricing was unbelievable ($39) with great customer reviews.

Have It All With A Solid State Hybrid Drive

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Have It All With A Solid State Hybrid Drive –  If you have an older PC and you are looking for a performance boost, that gives you faster speed with capacity, you may want to take a look one of Seagate’s Solid State Hybrid Drives.

Seagate’s Solid State Hybrid Drive

The good about the hybrid drive is that it is less expensive (see sample pricing) than solid state drives, yet gives you the kick and speed of the solid state drive (see customer reviews).

The hybrid drives by Seagate set aside approximately 6GB’s of ultra-fast NAND flash (same as used for SSD technology) to store the most frequently used data.  What this means is that, as you use the computer, the hybrid drive learns what data you use frequently and stores it on the SSD side of the drive. As this happens over time you will notice that the load times of those frequently used application are greatly reduced.  System boot times and system responsiveness are also noticeably improved using the hybrid form factor.

The Seagate® Desktop SSHD is designed to work in any standard desktop system. Unlike other hybrid solutions, there are no special drivers or software to install and configure. It installs and works just like a hard drive – only faster!

A “Must Have” Portable App Suite for Techs

If you have geek in your blood, then I am sure you have heard of the utilities developed by Windows Sysinternals and NirSoft . If not, below is a description of each:

The Sysinternals web site was created in 1996 by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell to host their advanced system utilities and technical information. Whether you’re an IT Pro or a developer, you’ll find Sysinternals utilities to help you manage, troubleshoot and diagnose your Windows systems and applications.

NirSoft web site provides a unique collection of small and useful freeware utilities, all of them developed by Nir Sofer. Nir Sofer is an  experienced developer with extensive knowledge in C++, .NET Framework, Windows API, and Reverse Engineering of undocumented binary formats and encryption algorithms.

The tech utilities maintained by these two sites are phenomenal and are utilities that every tech should have available on their flash drives. As a matter of fact, there are so many of them it is a chore to keep them up to date or remember what task each utility actually performs; HOWEVER, there is a solution to this problem.

Today, I want to show you another utility called WSCC (Windows System Control Center) that will bring the Windows Sysinternals utilities, the NirSoft utilites and your Windows based (built-in) utilities together as a software suite.  WSCC is FREE and is a portable app.

Screenshot

WSCC

WSCC is a free, portable program that allows you to install, update, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites. WSCC can install and update the supported utilities automatically. Alternatively, WSCC can use the http protocol to download and run the programs. WSCC is portable, installation is not required. Extract the content of the downloaded zip archive to any directory on your computer.

WSCC is a must have program for techs.  WSCC serves as the gateway to downloading all of these utilities in a batch, will allow you to perform batch updates of the utilities and the best part is this; WSCC defines what the utility actually does.  There may be many utilities that you do not need, but I am telling you, this is the way to go.  This program will keep everything nice and organized (and up to date).

IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT:  When dealing with utilities such as these, it is not uncommon for your antivirus software to detect these  type of utilities as being a bad guy (or what is called a False Positive). In this case, any of the utilities developed by either of these parties are the good guys and you can tell your antivirus software that it is OK to let them through.
