  1. I'm having a problem with my Windows 10. Lately, the little corner icons on my desktop's thumbnails (the ones with the curved arrows that tell you they are shortcuts) change, for whatever reason, into different icons. I had installed Folding@home before that happened so I presumed that might have caused it. I removed it but the problem persisted and, one time, my keyboard layout even went messed up. A good reboot did get rid of the problem but only temporarily. I figured it might've been malware, so I decided to wipe my hard disk drives, using DBAN and reinstall Windows 10. But just today, I experienced the problem yet again! Please see the attached image. So what it actually going on? Has anyone else experienced this issue before? I'll be glad to answer any questions if it helps get to the bottom of it. P.S. Thankfully, I'm not the only one who has this problem. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/the-shortcut-arrow-on-my-shortcut-has-changed-to/e7760508-a44b-412a-9e03-85b52ec35a22
  2. Is there a render client for Adobe Creative Suite CS6? Forget about CC, I like to save my money as long as I have Adobe full stop.
  3. Lately, I've been interested in building my own server and have been looking into the things I could use it for. One use that caught my eye was using it as a render server for your 3D and video editing. So yes, this is a noobs question but when I'm doing all my work on my main desktop, how do I get a separate server machine to do all the rendering work for it? Thanks.
  4. Okay, so I downloaded the offline installer from SourceForge. However, whenever I tried to install it, using the .exe file, I keep getting this error message. An error occurred while installing Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 ************Please try again************
  5. Long story short, I set up my copy of Windows 10 without installing .NET Framework 3.5, thinking I didn't need it. I found out I was wrong when I tried to boot up a favourite game of mine that actually needed it installed and I set up my OS and firewall in a way that I cannot simply download .NET so I'm dead in the water... Unless there is a way I can download all the files I need from the browser (instead of through a downloader started by an .exe file) to install .NET Framework 3.5 OFFLINE (and safely), right? If there is, I'd like to know. Thanks.
  6. I just read that article. Even though it is vastly outdated, it's given me something to think about.
  7. I'm looking to put together a computer with a lot of storage drives for RAID with a multi-boot system that includes Windows, Linux and BSD. However, I want to know if it is possible to create RAID arrays on all three of these platforms and RAID's, in general, are cross-platform. For example, if I make a RAID array in Windows, can I use that combined storage space in Unix-based systems and vice versa?
  8. Really? I watched a video on Youtube, showing how the GeForce series are more suited for performance in gaming while the Quadro series are more geared for precise computing work. https://invidio.us/watch?v=XMTe9DZeukU
  9. I'm investing in a high-end machine that'll have two Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080Ti blower GPU's linked together along with a Nvidia Quadro RTX 8000. The idea is that I would use the former two cards for gaming and the latter for rendering and other productive apps (i.e. Adobe Creative Suite). So I wonder if it is possible to get specific apps to use either one or the other for their graphics processing in both Windows and Linux (as I'm also looking to make it a multi-boot system). If so how? Thanks.
  10. Hi. For a while, I've been using Linux virtual machines for the majority of my browsing and other online activities but I've recently heard about the Xen hypervisor, which VirtualBox apparently, doesn't include so I am eager to find a way to use Xen-based virtual machines on both Windows and Linux. So far, I came across XCP-ng but it requires you to install it as an OS in a server machine before accessing it online on your main computer. Is there a more straightforward way to make and use Xen-based VM's, particularly on Windows like how you do it on VirtualBox with a more regular hypervisor? Thanks.
  11. As a bit of a fanatic of preserving my SSD, I am well aware of the benefits of RamDisks since I used one to store all my temporary (Temp folder) files. But after having used BleachBit for a while, I know there is a lot more in Windows I could clean on a regular which I believe ought to be stored in a RamDrive too such as the Prefetch cache, MUICache, Logs, Memory Dump, Recycle Bin and more. There has to be a way to move these folders into a RamDrive just like the Temp folder, right?
  12. Because last time I checked, an account on that site is only for use in America. I live in Europe, unless that has changed recently.
  13. Lately, I've been researching prepaid cards to see which is the best one to use for anonymous online spending. So far, the supposedly best one that's available is called Pockit. https://www.pockit.com/ What it offers sounds too good to be true but as I went through the customer reviews on Trustpilot, I often found reviews consistently claiming that Pockit froze customer accounts, often with their money still stored, and asked for personal information to verify them (i.e. Where they got the money from?). The company's responses to those complaints were always uniform, saying it was necessary to verify their accounts and such. All the responses were pre-written, which didn't help things for me. However, the majority of reviews were positive and they didn't report having that same problem, leaving me confused. So I wonder if anybody knows enough of Pockit from personal experience to clarify this. Thanks.
