Korleis få Windows Media Player i Windows 10 med K og KN versjonar (EU)

Denne oppskrifta gjelder kun for dei som får feilmeldingar når dei prøvar å installere KB3099229. (mediapakken for K og KN versjonane)  Windows 10 hadde en tidleg feil som låg i en mediapakke som heiter KB3010081. Denne vart fasa vekk ganske tidleg med Windows 10. (nov.15) Men den forsvant ikkje heilt. Pga. system tilhørlighet, så ligg den der forsatt. Det må gjerast nokon små justeringar for å få installere med «nye» mediapakken.

1:
Ã…pne fila som er vist under i Notepad++. (med Administrator rettighetar)
C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-MediaFeaturePack-OOB-Package_Wrapper~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10586.0.mum

Om du ikkje har Notepad++ så lastar du det ned gratis herifrå:  https://notepad-plus-plus.org/

2:
Gå til linje 4.

Problem med Nvidia GTX 760M grafikk kort

Ha en Asus N56JR med GTX760M. Grafikkortet fungerer godt nokon månader, men så slutta det å fungere. Fekk feilkode «…error code 43» når eg sjekka ut egenskapene i Enhetsbehandling. Etter x antall timar lesing på nett fant eg denne banale løysninga.

Gjør dette:
1) Avinstaller Nvidia driveren i Enhetsbehandling («Driver manager»).
2) Skutt av datamaskinen.
3) Koble ifrå strømkabelen og ta ut batteriet.
4) Vent 5 min. (grafikkort må «resettes»)
5) Sett i batteriet og strømkabelen.
6) Start datamaskinen.
7) Gå inn på http://www.geforce.com/drivers og laste ned den nyeste driveren.
8) Installer. No skal alt være i orden!

Problem med å installere VirtualBox?

Eg hadde problem med å installere VirtualBox. Skulle bruke den for å teste ESD versjon av Microsoft sitt nye operativsystem, Windows 10.

Her er løysninga:

  • Uninstalling Virtualbox
  • Going into the registry at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Network
  • Changing «MaxFilters from 8 to 20 (decimal)»
  • Rebooting
  • Installing

Microsoft WorldWide Telescope Penumbra

 

What is WWT?

The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a Web 2.0 visualization software environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope—bringing together imagery from the world’s best ground- and space-based telescopes for the exploration of the universe. WWT blends terabytes of images, information, and stories from multiple sources into a seamless, immersive, rich media experience delivered over the Internet. Students of all ages will feel empowered to explore and understand the cosmos using WWT’s simple and powerful user interface.
The mission of the WWT is twofold:

  • To aggregate scientific data from major telescopes, observatories, and institutions and make temporal and multi-spectral studies available through a single, cohesive Internet–based portal
  • To stimulate interest in science among younger generations, providing a compelling base for teaching astronomy, scientific discovery, and computational science

How do you start exploring with WTT? Upon first opening the Home screen, you’ll find a dialogue box that tells you how to navigate in the WorldWide Telescope. Follow these instructions, and then, after you’re familiar with the controls and features, click the Guided Tours tab. Now you can choose from a growing number of guided tours created by astronomers and educators from famous observatories and planetariums. For example, you can join Harvard astronomer Alyssa Goodman on a journey that shows how dust in the Milky Way Galaxy condenses into stars and planets. Or you can accompany University of Chicago cosmologist Mike Gladders two billion years into the past to view a gravitational lens bending the light from galaxies – a phenomenon that allows you to see billions more years into cosmic history. Feel free to pause a tour at any time and explore on your own – you can later re-enter the tour where you left off.

Utilizing the Microsoft® high performance Visual Experience Engine™, WorldWide Telescope allows you explore the universe as never before. It enables you to seamlessly pan the sky and to zoom in on celestial features, including stars, nebulae, and planets. For every object, you’ll find multiple information sources at your fingertips, just a mouse click away.
To understand the full power of WWT, bear in mind that celestial objects radiate energy over an extremely wide range of wavelengths, from radio waves to infrared, optical to ultraviolet, even x-rays and even gamma rays. The physical processes inside these objects can only be understood by combining observations at several wavelengths, and herein lies the beauty of WWT. It brings together many impressive archives of celestial objects – collections painstakingly constructed from observations by such instruments as the Hubble Space Telescope, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS).
While each of these archives carries interesting and important information about the nature of celestial objects, the comprehensive analysis of observations requires combining data from multiple instruments at different wavelengths. WWT facilitates such analyses, providing free, public access to astronomic data from a variety of temporal and multi-spectral studies and literature. With WWT, you’ll view the sky from multiple wavelengths: See the x-ray view of the sky and zoom into bright radiation clouds, then cross-fade into the visible light view and discover the cloud remnants of a supernova explosion from a thousand years ago. Switch to the hydrogen alpha view to see the distribution and illumination of massive primordial hydrogen cloud structures illuminated by high energy radiation from nearby stars in the Milky Way. These are just a few of many different ways to reveal the hidden structures in the universe with the WorldWide Telescope. Pan and zoom from aerial views of the Moon and selected planets, and see their precise positions in the sky from any location on Earth and any time in the past or future.

The data in WWT is not only readily accessible; it is presented in a form that facilitates integrative research, thereby helping to bridge the gap between cutting-edge research, education, and public knowledge. WWT represents a major step toward the democratization of science, and it has turned the Internet into «the world´s best telescope»â€”a veritable supercomputer at your desktop.
Microsoft Research has dedicated WorldWide Telescope to the memory of Jim Gray, releasing it as a free resource to the astronomy and education communities with the hope that it will inspire and empower people to explore and understand the universe like never before.

Repair MBR To Restore Windows 7 To Your Multiboot Options

My friend called me yesterday to help him in getting back Windows 7 in the boot menu. What he did was, repair his Windows XP installation and now after repair he cannot find Windows 7 in the boot menu. Now, he was having a dual-boot configuration with Windows XP and Windows 7. The problem that he was facing is very common and every user who is having a similar dual-boot configuration also faces this problem when they try to repair or reinstall an older Windows version.

If you install Windows 7 or Windows Vista as a second operating system on a computer system where Windows XP is already installed, the Windows boot menu incorporates the options from the older boot menu. But, let us suppose, if you install a fresh copy of Windows XP or on a system that is already running Windows 7, Windows will overwrite the MBR with the old one that doesn’t recognize the Windows 7 boot loader. Each time you install any version of Windows, it rewrites the MBR to call its own boot loader.

But there is solution available to repair the MBR damage. Follow the steps below and you will be able to get back the MBR settings that was lost. (This guide will work for Windows XP, Vista, 7.)

After booting into the older Windows (in this case Windows XP), insert your Windows 7 DVD. Now, open Command Prompt window (type cmd in the Run dialog box and press Enter) from within the older operating system. Run the following command from the Windows 7 DVD, substituting the letter of your DVD drive for x here:

x:\boot\ bootsect.exe /nt60 all

Now, after you restart your computer system, you should see the Windows 7 boot menu. But, wait a second, what happened to the entry to your earlier operating system? Well, don’t panic, to restore the menu entry for your earlier version of Windows, open an elevated Command Prompt window (right-click on cmd in Windows 7 or Vista, select Run as Administrator) and type this command:

bcdedit /create {ntldr} –d "Menu description goes here"

Substitute your own description for the placeholder text, being sure to include the quotation marks. The next time you start your computer, the menus should appear as you intended.

An even easier solution is to use boot-editing utilities like EasyBCD that supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2003 or 2008. EasyBCD can also be used to switch quickly from a Windows XP-style boot loader to its Windows 7 counterpart and back again.

Gratis antivirus er best – Antivir fra Avira slår alle betallingsløsningene

Rapport viser at gratisprogram stopper 99,7% av alle truslene.

Det er gode grunner til å installere et antivirusprogram på PC-en din, som oppdaterer seg selv og som også stopper andre trusler enn virus og ormer. De fleste som kjøper ny PC i dag får ett eller annet prøveabonnement med på kjøpet, som slutter å oppdatere seg etter at prøveperioden er over. Da må du ut med penger for å få videre sikring.

Men det er ikke sikkert at det behøver å være noen dårlig ide å kaste ut det medfølgende prøveprogrammet med et helt gratis alternativ. Det finnes mange å velge mellom, og noen av dem er faktisk like flink eller flinkere til å avsløre og stoppe ondsinnet kode enn programmene som koster penger.

Antivir er best

Det er i hvert fall hva testerne hos den uavhengige organisasjonen AV-comparatives.org har kommet frem til gjennom flere år med analyse og testing av antivirusprogrammer. Aller best ut kommer gratisprogrammet Antivir fra Avira, som skal være i stand til å avsløre hele 99,7% av alle truslene, i følge organisasjonen.

Det er godt foran betalløsninger fra Kaspersky (97,1%) og ESET NOD32 (97,6%). Ikke nok med det, Antivir viste seg også å være blant de aller raskeste programmene, og blant de beste til å oppdage mistenkelig kode som ikke var direkte definert i viruslisten.

Gratisversjonen av Antivir stopper også spyware, men mangler imidlertid støtte for virussøk i epost. Det behøver ikke å bety så mye, for den vil uansett stoppe forsøk på åpne infiserte vedlegg.

Gratisversjonen har også et litt irriterende vedheng, nemlig en reklame som popper opp hver gang virusdefinisjonene er oppdatert, men dette kan i følge vår kilde Freeware-genius enkelt fjernes.

Antivir kan du laste ned herfra

Browse3D v3.5 (Freeware)
Browse3D is an IE based browser interface that offers 3D style page navigation, that enables you to display up to 4 web page snapshots at the same time. The snaphots are not live, but clicking on one will bring the actual web page to the foreground.

You can hold down the CTRL key when clicking on any link, and it will be added to on of the 4 window panels, allowing you to pick links and then preview and browse them. The program makes a nice toy browser, but has probably little real-world value for most, especially as it does not support live page displays (unless you purchase a Pro version). The toolbar icons appeared to very unstable during our review and disappeared frequently.

Kidz CD 1 – Surf Station is a web browser interface for young children (6 years or younger) that allows them to access popular internet contents in several categories including Games, Stories and Television. It offers a very easy-to-use and kid friendly interface that uses the entire screen and also prevents casual access to the desktop (you have to press CTRL+L to exit) while it is running. Furthermore it also disables the right mouse button preventing confusing dialogs from appearing. Even though we did not like the fact that the parent cannot add or remove any sites, the selection provided by the software is very extensive and includes all the popular characters like Dora, Barney, Bob the Builder, Blues Clues and many others. It allows you to let your young kid play on the computer without having to supervise every mouse click.
