Where is My Background Located?

PROBLEM: You want to find the file of your desktop background.

SOLUTION:

  • Right-click on desktop.
  • Select PERSONALIZE.
  • Click DESKTOP BACKGROUND link.
  • Right-click the image.
  • Select PROPERTIES.
  • Highlight the information next to LOCATION.
  • Copy.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Paste and ENTER.
  • Document should be located at:
    C:\Users\Spielmadchen\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Desktop Background.bmp
    where Spielmadchen is replaced with your username.

NOTE: I am assuming everyone uses their C drive as their local disk.  If not, then you are really smart and should be able to convert these instructions easily to find the file.

Windows Activation After 30 Days

PROBLEM: Windows Activation has expired after 30 days.

SOLUTION: Expand activation to 120 days.

  • Start --> All Programs --> Accessories.
  • Right-click on Command Prompt and got to Run as Administrator. (You might need to know a password to go beyond this point.)
  • You should default to the following folder: c:\Windows\system32\
  • Type in slmgr -rearm
  • Hit return.

NOTE: This is not a permanent solution. You will have to do this three times a year. Owning an illegal copy of Windows is breaking the law.

NOTE: You cannot do this after 3 times so you need to reset the count of the times you have done it.

  • Start --> Type regedit in the open field.
  • Do a search for SkipRearm.
  • Change the value to 00000001.
  • Repeat the steps above. It should accept it and then restart quickly afterwards.

Skype Turns Down Volume

PROBLEM: You receive a phone call and pause your music player. When your call is complete and you unpause, the volume has been decreased.

SOLUTION: Right click the speaker icon in the bottom right-hand corner and go to SOUNDS. Click on the COMMUNICATIONS tab.  Select DO NOTHING and then click OK.

WHY: Skype is automatically decreasing the volume so you can hear your call.  It does not recognize that you have paused your music.

Error: 0xC004F025 Access Denied

PROBLEM: You are trying to use cmd prompt and you get the following error:

Error: 0xc004f025 access denied: the requested action requires elevated privileges

SOLUTION:

  • Go to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories.
  • Right click on Command Prompt.
  • Click on "Run as Administrator."

This will allow you to use cmd prompt fully.

WHY: Windows does this to protect several functions from idiots who don't know better and try to mess with things that result in their computer going kablooie.
