    This will depend on what computer software you wish to create.



    You need to first clarify what you want your program to do.

If you want to write Windows software, you'll need to pick up something like Microsoft Visual Studio 2000/2005/2008. If you're a student, many colleges offer this at a huge discount.  If you want to write software for mac, you'll need to get a copy of XCode from your Mac install disk 1.  If you want to write software for Linux, it's already included.  -------- In any of the above cases, you'll need to learn a programming language like c++, Java or Python. Beginner frequently start with C++, as do many college computer science curriculums. Either way, get a book on your programming language from your local library.

    If you look at the curriculum for any college's Computer Science department, you'll see that they always start off with either C++ or Java. I recommend starting with either you'd like. But asking which programming language to start with is kind of like asking if they prefer coke or pepsi. It's highly dependent on a number of factors including which operating system you'd like it to run on, as well as if you'd like it to interface with any external hardware. 


    Long story short, start with c++. But you've got a big learning curve in writing full production quality software.

Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk to Reset Windows 7 Password Easily


More and more people today tend to forget or lose their Windows 7 password under such a high-pressure society. Then what would you do to handle with that should you experienced the same trouble? Actually, all you need is only a "password reset" disk. A Windows 7 password reset disk could help you to reset Windows 7 password and regain access to your locked Win 7 PC. Here we will share two methods to create such a disk with you. So let's roll it.

Method 1: Through Windows 7 operating system

Requirement:
1. Be able to log on Win 7 operating system with the password
2. A USB flash drive is required

Windows 7 was designed to be able to create Windows 7 password reset disk without any other third party tools. So if you forgot the password for your user account and was unable to log on, then you could use the disk to reset Windows 7 password. Now you could follow these simple steps to create one.

Step 1: Start your computer and log on Win 7 operating system
Step 2: Insert an USB flash drive into your computer
Step 3: Click Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Accounts -> Create a password reset disk
Step 4: You will see the welcome screen. Click Next
Step 5: Select your USB flash drive. Click Next
Step 6: Type the login password in the password field. Click Next (now Windows 7 operating system should automatically create the disk for you)
Step 7: When the processes finish, Click Finish to exit

Now you have successfully created a Windows 7 password reset disk. And you will be able to use this disk to reset Windows 7 login password by following the whole processes of Windows 7 password recovery if you forgot Windows 7 password.

Note: One disk can only work for one account. You could not use this disk to reset the password of another user account.

Method 2: Try Windows 7 password reset software

Requirement:
1. An available computer with a CD/DVD burner
2. Windows password recovery software
3. A blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive

There is plenty of third party Windows password recovery software on the Internet. All of them were designed to create a Windows password reset disk. If you forgot to create a Windows 7 password reset disk when running Win 7 operating system before losing your password, then you may have a try on this method. The benefit of this method is that you could create the disk any time and do not need to know the Windows 7 password. Here we highly recommend Windows Login Recovery and will take it as an example to explain the procedures.

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery and install it onto an available computer
Step 2: Run the software and use it to burn a Windows 7 password reset disk (you could burn the file onto a blank CD/DVD or an USB flash drive)
Step 3: Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the optical drive
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and reset Windows 7 password

If you do not think these steps are distinct enough, you could also view the detailed user guide at recover the forgotten Windows password. By the way, the disc created through this way can reset the password of all the accounts instead of only one account.

Forgetting Windows 7 password is really a problem. But now you needn't worry about that any more. You could easily reset Windows 7 password with your Windows 7 password reset disk in the future.

Is there any driver, program or software fix that will allow me to load my "Intel Create & Share Software on my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 530?


The Intel Create & Share was written for Windows 2K and XP and not updated. The workaround is to use a computer (second machine, dual boot or virtual) with XP installed.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or update to one of those versions, you may be able to run a virtual XP computer for free. Download from Microsoft and install in order the Virtual PC program and the XP mode software. Install the Intel Create & Share program in XP mode as if it is your only OS. (Note: you can't have hardware installed on the virtual and real computer at the same time. To share files you will need to save them to external media (USB or optical disc).)

Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. For the other options, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

I am the administrator and every time the computer reboots it dumps any new files...need to update security files, etc??? what do I need to do?


it depends on where the files were created . To be exact , were they created while using the Internet , or while offline using program software on your computer's hard drive , such as a word processor program or some type of integrated office software . If it was on the Internet , you will change your Internet history settings and / or file download save options . Furthermore , to save online files to your computer without being dumped at reboot , a specific folder must be created on your computer for them . Basically , a root folder , and within it , sub folders for each file you wish to keep .
