The place where you can learn the truth about processes running on your computer.

September 12, 2009 Leave a comment

While trying to help a friend find solution to his slow machine, I discovered so many processes were running in the background (many of them are strange). In an attempt to know what these processes are, I tried to goggle them.

To cut the long story short, I found this website, File Inspect Library, very useful.

In case you ran into similar problem and want to find out whether it’s virus, worm or something else that’s eating up your memory, the best place where you can learn the truth about processes running on your computer is the above link.

However, that might not eventually solve your computer’s problem, but at least you are well informed about what is going on in your system.

If you discovered it’s a virus problem, the solution would be to kill the process(es) first, install/update your antivirus and perform complete virus scan on your system.

Hope you find this useful.

Cheers

Understand Accounting Terms First

September 9, 2009 1 comment

For someone that wants to start learning Microsoft Dynamics NAV, especially with a background like mine (non-financial, purely science), it is necessary to first understand some accounting terms and principle. Hopefully, the following would do a lot of good to such people.

Accounting reform
Accounting reform is change to accounting rules that goes beyond the enforcement of standard accounting practices and the elimination of “creative accounting”. It is advocated by those who consider the present standards and practices of the profession wholly inadequate to the task of measuring and reporting the activity, success, and failure of modern enterprise, including government. “Accounting”, says Baruch Lev, a notable proponent of such reform, “is about accountability”. He notes that the present regime of accounting rules dates back about 500 years to Renaissance Italian practices.

Accounting software
Accounting software is computer software that records and processes accounting transactions such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll and trial balance. It may be developed inhouse by the company or organization using it, may be purchased from a third party, or may be a combination of a third-party application software package with local modifications. It varies greatly in its complexity and cost.

Accounts payable
Accounts payable is one of a series of accounting transactions dealing with the paying of suppliers to which one owes money for goods and services. The average household performs this task by writing checks each month to such suppliers as the electric company, telephone company, cable TV or satellite dish service, the local newspaper, and so on.

Computer Suddenly Slow – My System is Slow, How Can I Fix It

September 8, 2009 1 comment

Have you been wondering – “Why is my computer suddenly slow?” This probably happens to most of us at some point. What was once a very fast computer can suddenly become bogged down and act sluggish. Well my first recommendation when asking “why my system is slow”, is to not automatically assume you need to get an upgrade or buy a new system. This is the biggest mistake I see folks make. They trash their current computer and spend hundreds even thousands on new equipment.

Well it is very possible to fix a suddenly slow computer. You can even make your computer run like new. What you need to do is perform some speed tweaks to fully optimize your system.

Why is my computer suddenly slow

  • You have too many startup and other programs running in the background. What this will do is eat up valuable RAM. Many of these programs run silently and can cause sluggishness without you knowing. Cut down on these programs by using the MsConfig command or installing software to get rid of them for you.
  • Not utilizing the disk clean up and defragmenter. Microsoft recommends you run each once a month to maintain system performance. What these do is clean up valuable space and speed up the way your computer accesses information. You can run these programs yourself or use software to automate the process for you.
  • Too many errors and corrupt files in the registry. The Windows registry is the most important area of your computer when it comes to performance. It controls information to run all software and hardware on your system. Unfortunately it also gets congested with errors and corrupt files which will make your computer suddenly slow.

If you are sick of asking why my system is slow, then perform these three tweaks to speed up your computer. You can attempt to do them yourself, or if you are lazy like me simply download software to do it for you.

Fortunately we can now repair most Windows Vista Errors quickly without spending so much money. Just by using a Windows Registry Cleaner program you can scan your computer for errors and repair them on a regular basis.
Currently some of these programs are equipped with system optimizer to bring your computer speed back to when it was new. They are also able to protect your privacy by erasing tracks of your information in your computer when you want them to.

There are just so many things that could go wrong with Windows Vista and repairing them all at the nearby computer shop could just be too expensive. I bet you would have seen one or some of these examples with your Windows Vista operating system:

  • Your Computer starts up and shuts down slowly.
  • Windows vista keep reporting errors.
  • Your PC keeps freezing randomly and your Computer runs gradually slower.
  • You keep getting Physical Memory Dump or Blue Screen Error.

According to Computer professionals, all these problems are caused by windows registry. Registries are the core files of your Windows Vista which controls everything inside your computer. Your programs, devices, settings, and all the things you do with your computer. Windows Vista cannot repair registry automatically.

Only professionals are able to fix registry manually and they need a lot of time to fix each of them. Do not attempt to modify or repair your vista registry by yourself, one mistake can lead to a total data loss. Your best bet is to get software that can help you repair your registry.
