Hi All and especially the techies here.
I have a few questions i am hoping for some others have experienced.
1) Is anyone experiencing issues with windows 7 lately.
For me all was fine when i first got my machine setup on it but just the past month i am losing usb connections to all sorts. Items like my usb phone for skype, then my scanner and then my usb card readers. Not only once did this occur. Windows trouble shooter could not throw any light on it so i simply uninstalled the software for the device and reinstalled the whole device again.
2) Anyone use a particularly good registry editor to clean up the registry?
Any recommendations in this regard.
3) How many of you have way more than one machine.
I am thinking of breaking up my computing needs across several machines to partition functional use.
Example .....Email/contact management communication and accounting on one machine
Media work like video and photographic manipulation on another (new hot rod i am looking to purchase)
Weather station software and security camera on another (using a older XP machine) dedicated role and connected to the web.
Any thoughts on this.
Being a one man business and a higghly self reliant character i cannot afford for the tech interference or distraction in my schedule and am beginning to think this is a way to ensure certain functions dont get affected by others.
I often try and buy new small utilities say something as simple as a duplicate file finder or some converter and i fear that all these little extras one accumulates over time are having an effect on my computer.
By the way if there is anyone out there that is running adobe premier and wants to get a handle on what it takes to make it really breeze then there is a great benchmark site that a number of users have setup for the various CS versions of Premier. Pm if you like to know there are too many to link to all of them. One thing i noticed though is while we keep buying new processors and machines, the guys with fast hard discs and loads of memory find that even lesser processors do better than a hotrod processor and less memory and slow discs.
Not having dipsticked the tech component market until recently i was not aware of the increase in speed of the hard discs available and not for huge dollars either.
Any comments on multiple boot platforms with win 7.
anyone tried to use the temp install concept on win7 apparently it has a feature where one can try software out without it neccessary being fully integrated to your machine such that if you decide it aint for you then you can ditch it without the pollution being left behind.
Anyone have any experience comment with the following Asus motherboard going to be building a new machine and make it dedicated to media getting in as high as economically practical to me and cruise down the decay curve a little longer this time.
Thanks for any and all input.
