How do i use compare it


Total Commander (www.ghisler.com, ex. Windows Commander) is a popupar two panels file manager. If you are still using Explorer for your routine tasks, you should definitely give it a try. TC has built-in file compare tool, but it is limited to standard features and does not allow merging.
Using new features of TC 7

Among new features of v7 in TotalCommander we can find an ability to define external compare utility, which TC will use instead of internal tool. It gives us 2 main advantages:

  • CompareIt will be used from internal Folders comparison tool (useful if you are not using our Synchronize It!)
  • Now we can quickly compare 2 files, selected in same pane!
  • Compare It can be used to compare files within archives
Using this nice feature requires a bit of manual work:
  1. Find wincmd.ini file - it's location is listed in Help>About
  2. Open it in any editor and find [Configuration] section
  3. Add this line under found section:CompareTool=c:\Program Files\Compare It!\wincmp3.exeOf course, change CompareIt path to what you have in your system
  4. Save file and restart Total Commander.
  5. To ensure that everything is working properly, select 2 files in same pane and choose File>CompareByContent command from menu. CompareIt should open with your selected files.

We will use button bar feature of TC - basically this is toolbar with shortcuts, used to quickly start applications with parameters from current panes.

To add shortcut to Compare It!, simply drag it and drop to the button bar. New button will appear, you can try to start application by clicking it.

Now we have to change parameters in order to compare files currently selected in left and right panes. Click our new shortcut with right mouse button and choose "Change..." to access button properties dialog.
We are interested in Parameters field, fill it as shown: art_tc2.gif
Quite a lot of variables can be used in parameters. But we will use only these (excerpt from TC' help file):
  • %P causes the source path to be inserted into the command line, including a backslash (\) at the end;
  • %N places the filename under the cursor into the command line;
  • %T inserts the current target path;
  • %M places the current filename in the target directory into the command line.
So %P%N becomes full path of current file in active pane, %T%M - full path of selected file in second pane.

Tip: Since Compare It! supports zip archives, you can also use created button to compare file with it's zipped version. To do this, select file in one pane, and archive in second one. Note that file to compare can reside deep in folders within archive, Compare It! will find it anyway.Using FileName Auto-Complete featureBut you can get even more by using unique Compare It! feature, designed especially for this case. Add to button bar another shortcut to Compare It!, and change parameters to these: art_tc3.gif
To use this button you don't have to select required file in second pane - just select file in active pane, and change your second pane to show folder were another file is located. This single button will save you several minutes every time you need to compare files with same name.

How to give command to check virus


You have to open your anti-virus software, whatever you have installed on your system, and run a scan of the computer. (Go to STart>All Programs>choose your AV or internet security suite>Computer Scan). The AV program is not a part of windows, so each one has a slightly different user interface, but what you want is to do a complete or in-depth scan.
If you suspect you have a problem with malware, I recommend you follow at least the first four steps of this malware removal guide.
Using MBAM to scan your system will often detect and remove problems your AV may have missed. It is one of the front-line tools in the parasite fight, used by experts and novices alike.
If you have any trouble, write back with the details and we'll be happy to walk you through it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

I am having trouble running setup on my desktop


To resolve this problem, replace the missing or corrupted Ntfs.sys file:
  1. Use the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD to restart your computer.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted, and then press ENTER. If no administrator password exists, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command): cd \windows\system32\drivers

    ren ntfs.sys ntfs.oldNote This step renames the corrupted Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old. If the Ntfs.sys file is not found, the file is missing.
  6. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: copy cd:\i386\ntfs.sys drive:\windows\system32\driversWhere cd is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD, and drive is the drive where you installed Windows XP.
  7. Remove the Windows XP CD from your CD-ROM drive, type quit at a command prompt, and then press ENTER to quit the Recovery Console.
  8. Restart the computer.

How to install raspppoe connection in vista


Hi,

The trick with XP also woks eith VISTA too.
Try the following in vista, you will succeed.

If you're using a RAS / PPPOE connection for Internet, and wish to automatically connect to your ISP at startup, you may use Rasdial utility which is built-in.

Usage: Open a Command Prompt window and type:

Rasdial <connectoid> "username" "password"

This would initiate a dial-up/PPPoE connection to your ISP.
You can create a batch file with the above parameters and place it in your Startup folder, so that vista dials to your ISP automatically at every startup.
If you don't prefer to enter the password in the batch file, use the following command-line (vista will prompt you for a password - secure)

Rasdial <connectoid> "username" *

NOTE: Type Rasdial.exe /? in the Command Prompt to learn more about this command, it's other parameters.

Hope my info helps you,
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

Run as not working


Unfortunately XP Pro doesn't have a fully functional Run As command. If you try and make a request for certain system functions it will always authenticate as the current explorer user. The solution is rather odd and cumbersome. Say I was logged into Arthur but wanted to run control panel as Keech then I would follow the directions below.
1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\ and Run As cmd.exe as Keech 2. Open Task Manager and kill the process explorer.exe 3. In your command window type C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe and press enter 4. Open control panel normally
5. All done!
