I am writing this question with great pain as I all time favorite desktop computer has started troubling me in my exam time only. It is good thing because of the fact that I won’t play games, but it is also troubling because, whenever I start to study I think about computer. I took it to service person also. He said, he wants to install new OS for which he needs to format my hard disk. I cannot agree because I have only import and documents, videos and some college materials in C drive. Can anybody help me to recover the data? I am worried.
I want to automate changing the repeat interval of keys. Presently I am doing it on login every time. But it goes back to default and hence I have to set it on next time log in. Which is the registry in the system which holds the value of repeat rate? Can I change the registry key using some kind of C program? Do I need to also use batch file to run automatically on startup and change the keys repeat rate? Are there any other precautions I have to take while manually editing the registry? Can I edit text file present in HKCU/Control Panel/Keyboard to update the new value and commit? Is there any simpler ways of doing this?
I am using windows 7 in virtual machine. Is there any issues in using windows update for OS installed in Virtual Machine? I am trying to enable the automatic update on but whenever i try to do, the internet page laods and take me into a help paeg of microsft where it says how to enable it.

I have this personal experience of speeds. I bought the laptop which came with windows 7 basic home edition. I got used to it and it was innovative, smart and stylishly good to see. But it was slow, booting was taking about 30 to 40 seconds but I got used to it. Remember that four colorful windows come together and slowly show some animation? Now I have got windows 8 in it and surprisingly windows 8.1 is fast. Now, laptop boots with in 8-10 seconds. Is it that efficient? Or over a period of time this slows down? Whatever, the speed is really exciting.
The PC I use has seen multiple OS starting from windows 7 to windows 8.1. The performance good and has never given any problems. I know there is a feature called disk defragmenter which helps in keeping memory contents together (I hope). I need your help in knowing whether this tool is now obsolete or is it really required to run manually. Does the OS runs this app regularly? I have never run this application. So, just want to know if this is something we can ignore because the OS is smart or still this is classic way to do manually
It’s been a quite a long time after the release of Windows 8 operating system for desktop users. I am trying to collectively understand the vulnerabilities, weak points, flaws in windows 8 OS. How was the performance as an OS compared to standard bench marks? Were the fire wall and internet safety features were more sophisticated? Can anybody compare the pros and cons of the windows operating systems? I have been using Windows since 2000 and gave always amazed to see that there is substitute for window OS. Thanks for your help in advance.
I am broke virtually. I have lost so many reading materials which I had printed into pdf, many freeware, and least importantly songs and other downloads. It wa all fine last time I turned off my computer. Now there is nothing other than sample pictures and music. It looks like I have created a new user account. Can anybody seriously suggest me to recover the files at least? I am really worried because the lost data included my brother's thesis input data as well. He had stored a few hundreds xlsx documents and are now under threat. Can anybody soon throw us some help light?

What are the effects that it might brought once a disable this function with my system? Can you give me insight what are the best options rather than this? Thank you!
