The fasted way is to simply disable the Windows Search service. Run
Services (just type “Services” at the Start Search bar), right click on the
Windows Search service and select “Properties”. Then choose “Disabled” for
the start type. Afterwards, you have to stop this service by right clicking
on it and selecting “Stop”.

How to play mope io game?


Mope io is the best io game in the game's world. I like io game and this game is very interesting and colorful, so I always played this game only when I was feeling bored. It is very easy game. Mope.io the goal is to eat as many circles as possible while keeping away from the other players. You are able to move along the plants constantly as you eat enough of the circles. Once you started to run from the larger mice and shrimp who are trying to knock you out, then you try to save yourself. The more circles you eat the larger you become. I hope this post is helpful for you.

Hi There , I Bought a PM8M-V Motherboard cause my old mb died , aand im having problems with this! Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz MB ID - P4M800-8237-6A7L6009C-00 MSI PM8M-V H (MS-7104 v2) 512 MB PC3200...


When it gets slow, start the Windows Task Manager.
Click the "Performance" tab.
Check what percentage of the CPU--power is being used.
Check what percentage of the RAM is being used.

Click the "Processes" tab.
Click the 'CPU' column-heading *TWICE* to sort the processes,
so that the "big" users of CPU are listed at the top.

Scan for computer-viruses.

Uninstalled the camera but the "vm_sti.exe" is still eating my cpu


Hi,

Your post ..."C:\WINDOWS\VM_STI.EXE...clean this from my pc..." would mean remove/delete.

Initially, pls try to:
  • Uninstall the Philips SPC 200NC;
  • Run in Safe mode and delete C:\WINDOWS\VM_STI.EXE;
  • goto Start, Run, type "msconfig", click on Startup, uncheck reference(s) to C:\WINDOWS\VM_STI.EXE;
  • open Windows Task Manager, Applications (or Processes), highlight VM_STI.EXE, click on End Process button.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I am trying to run tekken 5 on pcsx29.4 will it work.


I would have to assume since you didn't know how to setup a bios correctly that this is your very first emulator and this is the first time you've tried to use one. Go .::HERE::. and read Solution #2 . Read all of solution 2 please. Next read this page, all of it please, .::HERE::.

The reason why I sent you to those two pages is because one or all of the following things is true about your problem.

1.) You're using the wrong country BIOS for the version of the game you are playing (example you're trying to use a japan bios to play a USA game)

2.) You're using the wrong .EXE as your main emulator. (PCSX2.EXE is for Pentium 4 processors, PCSX2T.EXE is for AMD processors.)

3.) You didn't even bother to configure PCSX2 with video card settings and processor settings you left them all at default and tried to run PCSX2.(will 100% always result in a game crash lol.)

4.) Your computer does not even meet the bare minimum system requirements of PCSX2.



Every single thing here you could have avoided if you have read .::HERE::. always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always always
read the HOW TO or GUIDE of the person who made the program before you ask anyone any questions. Saves us both time. So please read that guide first (because I know you have not) then I'll be more then happy to help you further.
