    Windows IE10-For Windows 7?

    Windows


    A Microsoft spokeswoman today confirmed that the company is committed to producing a Windows 7 edition of IE10. But users want to know more, including when.
    "I do have the latest Windows 8 Release Preview but I am wondering what is taking so long for IE10 to be available for testing on Windows 7," asked a user earlier this month on Microsoft's IE10 support forum.
    Last November, Microsoft said it would ship beta and RC, or "release candidate," builds of IE10 for the current OS. "We will release an IE10 Beta and Release Candidate on Windows 7 prior to IE10's general availability," said a commenter labeled as "ieblog" -- presumably Microsoft itself -- in a Nov. 29, 2011, blog post by the team.

    Windows Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) is the next version of Internet Explorer currently being developed by Microsoft, and the successor to Internet Explorer 9. On 12 April 2011, Microsoft released the first "IE10 Platform Preview", which runs only on Windows 7 and later;. While the second platform preview was also available for Windows 7 and later, subsequent platform previews run only on Windows 8. The release, only four weeks after the final release of Internet Explorer 9, has been noted as a fast release cycle in the context of the new browser wars. IE10 expands on Internet Explorer 9 functionality in regards to CSS 3 uptake, hardware acceleration, and HTML5 support.

    Get Back Your taskbar has disappeared


    The taskbar is that horizontal bar at the bottom or your computer screen that displays open programs on your desktop. The taskbar also contains the Start menu, which allows you to navigate to various programs installed on your computer. In many ways, it's your command central.
    Thus, there's nothing more frustrating than going to start a program, only to find the taskbar gone. A computer without a taskbar will bring you to a grinding halt.
    The good news is that the taskbar never disappears—it just hides. It may be hiding behind other open windows, or at the top or side of your screen. You can also (unintentionally) make the taskbar so thin that it seems invisible.
    The following are possible reasons why your taskbar has vanished, as well as solutions to keep your taskbar from ever running away again.

    Solution 1: Find your taskbar behind other windows

    • If you don't see your taskbar, minimize all windows on your desktop. See if your taskbar is hiding behind your open windows.
      Examples of maximized window with taskbar hidden and minimized window with taskbar visible.Finding your taskbar behind maximized windows
    • Set your taskbar so it's always on top of all desktop windows:
      1. Right-click the taskbar, and click Properties.
      2. Select the Lock the taskbar check box.
      3. Make sure the Auto-hide the taskbar check box is not selected.
    Taskbar page on the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box. Under appearance, the Lock the taskbar checkbox is selected.Locking and keeping the taskbar on top
    Now your taskbar will always be visible, no matter how many windows you have open. Locking your taskbar also keeps you from accidentally moving it around.

    Solution 2: Find your taskbar elsewhere on your screen

    If you have tried minimizing all windows on your desktop and you still don't see your taskbar—perhaps it has been moved. Maybe you've moved it yourself by accident. Or, perhaps someone's playing a practical joke on you. Regardless, the following will help you get your taskbar back to its proper size.
    1. As you did in the previous steps, minimize all windows on your desktop. If you don't see your taskbar at the bottom of the screen, perhaps it's hanging out to the side or at the top of your desktop.
      Example of the desktop showing a taskbar that was previously hidden.Finding a hidden taskbar
    2. Click-and-drag your taskbar back to the bottom of your screen.
    3. Right-click the taskbar, and then click Properties.
    4. Click to select the Lock the taskbar check box.

    Solution 3: Thicken your taskbar

    You can make your taskbar a thin line—so skinny it's hard to see. To see if you've done this unintentionally, perform the following:
    1. Minimize all windows on your desktop. Look at each side of your screen. If you see a thin strip, that's the taskbar.
      The Windows desktop with the taskbar showing as a thin line.Finding a thin taskbar
    2. Point your mouse at the strip. It changes into a double-sided arrow
    3. Click-and-drag the mouse toward the center of the screen to thicken your taskbar.
    4. After you thicken the taskbar, you can drag it back to the bottom of the screen by following the steps in "Solution 2" above.

    How To Remove "your system is running low on virtual memory" message


    Perhaps you're more than familiar with this scenario: You're working on your PC and notice performance getting gradually slower and slower. Programs become harder to open and close. You wait forever for Web pages to be displayed. And then, you get some serious-sounding "virtual memory is too low" message, like the one in the following graphic.
    Don't worry: This message isn't as scary as it sounds.
    Example of a Virtual Memory is low message.Virtual memory low message
    Virtual memory is the space your computer uses when it's short of RAM (Random Access Memory), which is the memory used when running programs like Microsoft Office Word or Microsoft Office PowerPoint.
    So what can you do to correct this problem and prevent this message from coming up in the future? The following are some solutions to keep your computer from displaying the "virtual memory minimum is too low" message.
    Solution 1: Bump up the virtual memory size on your computer
    The first solution is to increase your computer's virtual memory settings. To do so, you first need to determine how much RAM you currently have.

    Windows 7

    1. On the Start menu, click Control Panel, then click System.
    2. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    3. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
    4. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, click Change.
    5. Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.
      Example of the Virtual Memory dialog box with the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box cleared.Clearing the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box
    6. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
    7. Click Custom size, type a new size in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, click Set, and then click OK.
    Note Increases in size usually don't require you to restart your computer for the changes to take effect, but if you decrease the size, you'll need to restart your computer. We recommend that you don't disable or delete the paging file.
    Solution 2: Add more RAM to your computer
    If you keep getting that dreaded "Your system is running low on virtual memory" message—even after you increase your computer's virtual memory—then you may need to buy more memory for your computer. To really work well:
    • Windows 7 needs at least 1 GB of RAM to run. See more system requirements for Windows 7.
    • Windows Vista needs at least 512 MB of RAM to run, but for some applications (like gaming) 1 GB or more of RAM is recommended.
    • Windows XP needs a minimum of 256 MB of RAM.
    The more RAM you have, the better.

    Find out how much RAM you have in your computer

    1. On the Start menu, click Control Panel, then click System.
    2. Under System, next to Installed memory (RAM), you can see the amount of RAM your computer has.
      Note In some cases, Windows reports both the amount of memory that's installed on your computer and the amount of memory that's usable. If you're using a 32-bit version of Windows, the amount of usable memory might be less than the total amount of memory installed.
    If you're at work, contact your company's IT administrator before updating the memory on your computer. They may have some memory available and can help you install it.
    If you do need to purchase some more memory, stop by your local computer shop. You can probably buy memory from them, and they'll probably install it for you. Or, you can buy memory online.

    Basics for safer downloading


    Whenever you download a file—whether you open a spreadsheet attached to an email message, grab a cool little screensaver or mouse cursor from the web, or download music or video files from someone else's computer—you could be putting your computer at risk.
    You can take some basic steps to protect your PC and your company's network:
    • Set up your computer with security protection. When you upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows XP, you automatically get a lot of security protection built right into the system.
    • Increase your awareness of attack methods so that you can be on the lookout for them.
    • Use tools to remove unwanted software that has been downloaded to your computer (despite your best efforts to prevent it).
    Here's how:

    1. Get ready: Strengthen your computer's defenses

    Start by checking with your system administrator to find out about your company's security tools and policies. Read the articles Understanding security and safer computing and How to boost your malware defense and protect your PC to get an overview of the kinds of threats that exist and what you can do to defend against them. Because new threats are identified every day, remember to keep your security components—including those on the following list—up to date.
    • Firewalls. These include hardware or software that checks information coming from the Internet and either turns it away or lets it pass. Firewalls are built into Windows XP Service Pack 2 and all later versions of the Windows operating system.
    • Antivirus protection. Viruses, worms, and Trojan horses are programs that use the Internet to infect vulnerable computers. Microsoft Security Essentials offers free, real-time protection for your PC against malicious software. Or choose an antivirus program from a list of Microsoft partners who provide anti-malware software.
    • Spyware protection. Spyware can display ads and pop-ups, collect information, and change your computer settings or default home page without you knowing about it. Use Windows Defender, which is available as a free download for Windows XP Service Pack 2 and is built into later versions of Windows. Or install your own antispyware program.
    • Software updates. Regular updates to Windows help protect your computer against new viruses and other security threats. Be sure you're using the latest version of your web browser, and turn on the browser's security features.
    • Email spam filters. Microsoft Outlook includes a junk email filter, as do many other email programs, along with additional features that can help block unwanted messages, disable links, and warn you about threatening content.

    2. Download with caution: Think first. Click later.

    With your computer's defenses strengthened, the rest is up to you. Here’s what you can do to protect your computer.
    • Beware of fraudulent email messages. Don't click links or open attachments unless you're sure of the source. In pop-up messages or warnings, click the Close box (close box) instead of OK or Agree to get rid of the box.
    • Only download from reputable sites. Be cautious about downloading from unknown sources and from sites containing objectionable material or too-good-to be-true offers. Microsoft Download Center, for example, is the best, safest source for Microsoft products. Bookmark it in your browser’s favorites, and check it out to find the most popular downloads, free trials, and newest software available from us.
    • Install and use file-sharing programs cautiously. When you use file-sharing programs to trade music, video, or other files on the web, you make some of your files—or even your entire hard disk drive—available to others using similar software.
    • Save files for safer downloads. . If you’ve decided to download a file from the Internet, save the file first to your hard drive. Then, when you attempt to open the file, your antivirus software can check the file and delete it if it detects potentially damaging code. To do this, in the File Download dialog box, click the Save button instead of the Run or Open button.

    3. Remove malicious software

    Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you may download a program you don't want. If this happens to you, here are some ways to get rid of it:
    • Run antispyware tools. Windows Defender, which is built into Windows Vista and Windows 7, reduces the likelihood of downloading spyware in the first place. If you are using another antispyware program, make sure it is up to date and then scan your system, following the instructions for removing suspicious software.
    • Run the malicious software removal tool. Users of earlier versions of Windows who suspect that malware is causing their computers to slow down or fail can use the Malicious Software Removal Tool to remove the malware.
    • Disable add-ons. Web browser add-ons can display things like toolbars and stock tickers but can also install spyware or other malicious software. In Internet Explorer, you can disable add-ons from the Tools menu. Click Manage Add-ons, select the one you want to disable, and then click Disable.
    Due to the changing nature of potential attacks, preventing malicious software from damaging your computer takes continuous vigilance. However, by installing and updating protection tools and by using caution when you work, you can help minimize the

    How to make a computer faster: 6 ways microsoft to speed up your PC


    By following a few simple guidelines, you can maintain your computer, help increase your PC speed, and help keep it running smoothly. This article discusses how to use the tools available in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP Service Pack 3 to help make your computer faster, maintain your computer efficiently, and help safeguard your privacy when you're online.
    Note: Some of the tools mentioned in this article require you to be logged on as an administrator. If you aren't logged on as an administrator, you can only change settings that apply to your user account.

    1. Remove spyware, and help protect your computer from viruses

    Spyware collects personal information without letting you know and without asking for permission. From the websites you visit to user names and passwords, spyware can put you and your confidential information at risk. In addition to privacy concerns, spyware can hamper your computer's performance. To combat spyware, you might want to consider using the PC safety scan from Windows Live OneCare. This scan is a free service that helps check for and remove viruses.
    Download Microsoft Security Essentials for free to help guard your system in the future from viruses, spyware, adware, and other malicious software (also known as malware). Microsoft Security Essentials acts as a spyware removal tool and includes automatic updates to help keep your system protected from emerging threats.
    The Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool is another utility that checks computers running Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 for infections by specific, prevalent malicious software, including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom, and helps remove any infection found.

    2. Free up disk space

    The Disk Cleanup tool helps you to free up space on your hard disk to improve the performance of your computer. The tool identifies files that you can safely delete and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.
    Use Disk Cleanup to:
    • Remove temporary Internet files.
    • Delete downloaded program files, such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets.
    • Empty the Recycle Bin.
    • Remove Windows temporary files, such as error reports.
    • Delete optional Windows components that you don't use.
    • Delete installed programs that you no longer use.
    • Remove unused restore points and shadow copies from System Restore.
    Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.
    To use Disk Cleanup:

    Windows 7 users

    1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.
    2. When Disk Cleanup has calculated how much space you can free up, in the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.

      Disk Cleanup dialog box
    3. Clear the check boxes for files that you don't want to delete, and then click OK.
      • For more options, such as cleaning up System Restore and Shadow copy files, under Description, click Clean up system files, and then click the More Options tab.
    4. When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the specified files, click Yes.
    After a few minutes, the process completes and the Disk Cleanup dialog box closes, leaving your computer cleaner, performing better, and potentially increasing your PC speed.

    Windows Vista users

    1. In the Start menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.
    2. In the Disk Cleanup Options dialog box, choose whether you want to clean up your own files only or all of the files on the computer.
    3. If the Disk Cleanup: Drive Selection dialog box appears, select the hard disk drive that you want to clean up, and then click OK.
    4. Click the Disk Cleanup tab, and then select the check boxes for the files you want to delete.
    5. When you finish selecting the files you want to delete, click OK, and then, to confirm the operation, click Delete files. Disk Cleanup then removes all unnecessary files from your computer. This may take a few minutes.
    The More Options tab is available when you choose to clean files from all users on the computer.

    Windows XP users

    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.

      Disk Cleanup dialog box
    2. In the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.

      Disk Cleanup dialog box
    3. Clear the check boxes for files that you don't want to delete, and then click OK.
    4. When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the specified files, click Yes.
    After a few minutes, the process completes and the Disk Cleanup dialog box closes, leaving your computer cleaner and potentially performing better.

    3. Speed up access to data

    Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk as a file is opened (to piece it back together). The response time can be significantly longer.
    Disk Defragmenter (sometimes shortened to Defrag by users) is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end to end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.
    When to run Disk Defragmenter
    In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals (weekly is optimal), there are other times you should run it, too, such as when:
    • You add a large number of files.
    • Your free disk space totals 15 percent or less.
    • You install new programs or a new version of the Windows operating system.
    To use Disk Defragmenter:

    Windows 7 users

    1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.

      Disk Defragmenter dialog box, with the Configure schedule button selected
    2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment, and then click the Analyze disk button. After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears, letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.

      Tip: You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.
    3. To defragment the selected drive or drives, click the Defragment disk button. In the Current status area, under the Progress column, you can monitor the process as it happens. After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.
    4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.
    5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.
    6. You can also schedule the Disk Defragmenter to run automatically. (Your computer might even be set up this way by default.) Under Schedule, it reads Scheduled defragmentation is turned on and then displays the time of day and frequency of defragmentation. If you want to turn off automatic defragmentation or to change the time or frequency, click Configure schedule (or Turn on Schedule, if it is not currently configured to run automatically). Change the settings, and then click OK.
    7. To close the Disk Defragmenter utility, on the title bar of the window, click the Close button.

    Windows Vista users

    1. Open Disk Defragmenter: Click the Start button, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment and then click the Analyze disk button. After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.

      Tip: You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.
    3. To defragment the selected drive or drives, click the Defragment disk button. In the Current status area, under the Progress column, you can monitor the process as it happens. After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.
    4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.
    5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.
    6. You can also schedule the Disk Defragmenter to run automatically. (Your computer might be set up this way by default.) Click Modify schedule....
    7. In the Disk Defragmenter: Modify Schedule dialog box, choose how often, which day, and at what time of day you want defragmentation to occur, and then click OK.
    8. Click OK again.

    Windows XP users

    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.

      Disk Defragmenter dialog box, showing possible disks to defragment
    2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment and then click the Analyze button. After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears, letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.

      Tip: You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.

      After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.
    4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.
    5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.
    6. To close the Disk Defragmenter utility, on the title bar of the window, click the Close button.
    Running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter on a regular basis is a proven way to help keep your computer running quickly and efficiently. If you'd like to learn how to schedule these tools and others to run automatically, please read Speed up your PC: Automate your computer maintenance schedule.

    4. Detect and repair disk errors

    In addition to running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to optimize the performance of your computer, you can check the integrity of the files stored on your hard disk by running the Error Checking utility.
    As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.
    If you use your computer daily, you should run this utility once a week to help prevent data loss.

    Run the Error Checking utility:

    1. Close all open files.
    2. Click Start, and then click Computer.
    3. In the Computer window (My Computer in Windows XP), right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
    4. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
    5. Click the Check Now button.
    6. In the Check Disk dialog box (called Error-checking in Windows 7), select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.

      Check Disk Local Disk dialog box, with the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box selected
    7. If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
    Tip: Only select the "Automatically fix file system errors" check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.

    5. Learn about ReadyBoost

    If you're using Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you can use ReadyBoost to speed up your system. A new concept in adding memory to a system, it allows you to use non-volatile flash memory—like a USB flash drive or a memory card—to improve performance without having to add additional memory.

    6.  Upgrade  to  Windows 7
