Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

DSL USAGE After changing over from windows xp to VISTA recently, DSL usage billing has increased tenfold suddenly. My usage pattern is the same as before. Why is this? Are there automatic downloads which may not be needed by me and which are being billed? What is the solution? I do not want to pay more and I do not need too many downloads and updates. My needs are elementary

Make sure u disable automatic windows updates and several other auto updates of different programs which may periodically check for updates (e.g. antivirus software). Also, disconnect your internet connection when you are not using it to avoid conflicts ;)

How to enter my bios and how to change my SATA mode to IDE because i want to migrate windows 7 and install xp pro 2005 and my installation did not work untill i downgrade my current (windows 7) os to xp...


Accessing the bios, read this Link

As for your installations, do you meant that you want a "Dual boot on your system" ie 2 Operating Systems on one PC? Win 7 & Win XP on the PC?

If you wish to know more on "Dual Booting" for your PC read, LINK1, LINK2

Before getting started, make sure your PC hardware must be Win 7 compatible? This type of installation & usage is not meant for the non savvy users, because "bugs" errors! usage after installation.

Hope it helps.

Unknown file


In software Svchost.exe is a generic host process name for services that run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) within the Microsoft Windows operating system.
At startup, Svchost.exe checks the services part of the registry to construct a list of services that it must load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services permits better control and easier debugging, but it also causes some difficulty for end users wishing to see the memory usage or vendor legitimacy of individual services and processes. End users in Windows XP Professional (and derivatives, such as Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP Media Center Edition) can run the following command at the system prompt to get a breakdown:
tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" (NB: This command does not work in Windows XP Home.)
Due to being widespread among running processes, svchost.exe has long been a common disguise used by malware to hide its presence from the user. (One of the common trojan horses deceptively uses scvhost.exe). Users may then run tasklist with no arguments and match the reported PIDs with the previously shown Svchost instances. If memory usage appears abnormal, the user can look up the service names shown by their command on the internet to see if it is a known service or malware.
The Svchost.exe file is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder. The main registry key involved at bootup is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost (values in this key will show the user at least a partial list of the actual processes behind instances of svchost).
The 30 April, 2007 release of WSUS 3.0 led to reports of svchost.exe issues, including 100% CPU usage, memory hogging, and excessive laptop fan/power usage.[1]
