Windows Msconfig tool

Hi everyone.. Today we are gonna use a very simple tool in windows calles MSCONFIG. One of the things it will help you to do is to prevent any program that you don't need to start automatically with windows, so if there are some programs that just start themselves every time you login to windows, you can use it to stop these programs.

Go to Start menu, then choose Run :



Now type "msconfig" without the quotation marks as in the image above, press Enter.

You will see a window like this one, choose the Start up tab:



This contains all the application that start everytime you start your computer. Some of them are windows components so you just leave them alone. Uncheck any program that you don't want to start with windows. If you don't know some of them don't do anything, just leave them, check/uncheck only the programs you know.

I hope that helped :)

seehcri.sys Error problem caused by Sony Ericsson PC suite

Many people have encountered problems with error messages saying that this file: seehcri.sys has caused an unexpected error and it also makes some of your USB ports not working. The program Sony Ericsson PC Suite, specially the live update service seems to be controlling the USB controllers somehow by creating a virtual one "Sony Ericsson seehcri Device Driver" ; or that is how many people understand the problem.

Let's talk about some solutions available, some of which I tried and worked. First thing to do is to uninstall/delete these device drivers from your device manager, right click on My computer then choose properties and then you will find device manager on the left.

After doing that, many people found that the problem is solved by only deleting the "update service" that comes with the PC suite software. You can find it by going to Control Panel > Programs and Features and then look for "update service" and uninstall it. No find the seehcri.sy…

How do I take a screenshot of my desktop or running program?

It's very simple in fact. You can do it by your self or download a little program to do it for you.

The first method:

On your keyboard look for a button called Print Screen or "PRTSC" you will fin it in the upper part of the keyboard above the numbers and to the right of the F12 key in most keyboards.

Now the image is copied to the clipboard. Go to any image editing software you use (photoshop, painshop, etc) or just use "Paint" which comes with all windows versions :

Press Crtl + V or Choose "Paste" from the "Edit" menu in Paint or in photoshop.
