I have noticed that MPC (= KLCP) in many situations is very modest. For example extension icons are not always changed when MPC becomes default - sometimes but not always. At least not on my PC.

@ jgpaiva, do you use BSPlayer for all the (common) video file types? I suddenly realize that I don't know what the text should say, if I try to change it - as I don't use BSPlayer. Does any of you guys have K-Lite's Media Player Classic as your default player, and care to tell what the text in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > .avi > Data > Default is saying?

 tellme

Edit: I already know that, don't I. My screenshot is telling the answer: KLCP AVI File

- well, it has been a long and stressfull day. Hope you will forgive me. But of course, I have not yet tried to change the text, so I don't know yet if I am in the clear or not. Talk to you later!

This is hard for me to believe and just as hard to tell: I have done it again!

Well, not really "me", but Miro. The final version 1.0 is on the street and I just had to give it yet another try. But Miro is still far too sluggish for my weak and unstable XP, so I removed it again after a couple of hours, and Bang, there you have it!: All video file types are again miro.1 !!  wallbash

- and this time my "reset-trick " didn't work. The file types are still wrong.

The problem:

When uninstalling Miro 1, it did not change the file types back to what they were before Miro was installed. [Edit: .divx was and is okay because Miro does not change the divx type]

The problem now is not the file associations, but the file types.

The extension is right, but the description is wrong. In the Explorer column type, any .divx video is listed as a divx video file, and any avi file should be listed avi file, but is described as a miro.1 type.

I can right-click any video file and say "always open with X-Player", and X-Player will open it and play it, but that will not change the "perceived" video file type; it will still be wrong (miro.1), (except for .divx)

-  and the video file will just open the text editor when double-clicked.

 tellme
... Should the above fail, you could try to open regedit and under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT locate the extensions you're having problems with (like .mp3, .mp4, .aac, .mpg etc.). Each of these keys should have at least two string values that are important here:

PerceivedType = Should be either video or audio, depending on the filetype.
Content Type = The files mime type. For instance, AVI files should have video/avi, MP3 should have audio/mpeg etc. Just google <file extension> + mime type and you should have no problems finding the correct ones.

Now this might not work ...

In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT the "problem" seems to be the first key listed, "(Standard)", which Dirhael did not mention. The data in the key named (Standard) is "Miro.1" - but should of course be something different, as I don't have Miro on my machine anymore. Please take a look in your HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > .avi and tell me exactly what (Standard) says!  tellme

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > .avi > (Standard) :

... Startup Monitor has saved me more times ...

It is good to realize that Mike Lin is still working [Edit: or is he?]- I used a lot of his programs in the previous century. Do you use the Startup Control Panel, as well?

I'd never actually been the victim of a trojan before.  I felt so *dirty*.  Are feelings of self-loathing and humiliation in the wake of such an event normal?

It is common for victims by rape to feel dirty afterwards. I guess the priciples are the same if you are rap.. ehh infected with trojans or the likes. You have taken pride in having a clean machine, but this 'person' (animal) treated you and your pc like worthless pieces of trash.

Try again, the link is right.
5083  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: BruteKill hotkey on: November 11, 2007, 05:30:43 PM
Hmm... 1) There was no installation, so when I run the ShutdownNow.exe from Start, there is the usual security warning box asking if I want to execute this unknown program. It would be nice not to have to answer this question at every startup.

2) I guess the hotkey was taken, or something, because there is no action at all when I run the program or when I press the F12 hotkey - and there is no response to see in the task manager.


I don't know what to do with the ahk script, and of course >ShutdownNow: press hotkey< must be different from >Shutdown: db'click icon<, but you made Shutdown.exe work so nice and easy (and with an installer and all [Edit: No, "installer" cannot be the right word, but I don't have to understand anything to make it work]) Thmbsup  so maybe you can make this one work just as smooth?

The combination Win+M/Ctrl+M/Ctrl+Shift+M (etcetera) followed by Alt+F4 is suspended / elegal. But it doesn't really matter, because I have found ClickZap. [/IDEA]

Thanks for trying, Ralf. Ctrl+Alt+Delete will of course eventual bring up Process Explorer, BUT I will then have to click "File" and wait forever for the what-do-you-call-it to roll down and give access to Shutdown, and THEN I will have to click Shutdown AND THEN wait forever and ever for some stupid box to appear and ask if I really want to shutdown. It is not posible when the CPU usage is 100% and everything is a mess. It is 100% imposible. So there I don't go.

Edit: I've found a brandnew emergency task manager: AntiFreeze, I will try out.

Alt+F4 brings up the shut down menu. Then ...

Thats one of the reasons I asked for the hotkey to be editable. Alt+F4 brute-kills the active window. I don't remember which program gave me this feature.

That's easy!

Well, jgpaiva, it was easy... to read!   Grin

What an earth are you talking about?  embarassed  Where and how do I change settings for a F button? Or were you referring to Shutdown.exe ?? or..??? Forgive me for being such an ignorrant on IT.

BTW: Shouldn't it be 24 instead of 13 ? Its for emergency 100% CPU-usage situations.
5088  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: BruteKill hotkey on: November 11, 2007, 02:32:15 AM
My XP is getting more and more unstable, and The End is near, I am afraid. But meanwhile I would like to be able to still use it to some degree... Right now I am in the need of a hotkey version for the force / brutekill feature one can have in, say, jgpaiva's Shutdown, so I will be able to shutdown my computer even when the taskbar is unreachable and CPU usage is heavy. The hotkey must be editable.

On the other hand, if money is no problem, I will recommend the pro version of the first one you mentioned, the $40 Natural Reader Professional (Basic)

If money is an isue, and you think you can live with commercials nag messages, then you should (also) try out Cepstral's Callie. Normally it is $30, but with (oral) ads it is gratis.
5091  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Searching for the best read-aloud software on: November 10, 2007, 10:08:34 AM
My experience is that it is far more important what voice you purchase. Forget about free ones; they stink (compared to $$ versions)!
5092  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Small program i could run to restart a stubborn service? on: November 10, 2007, 03:06:35 AM
@ Grorgy: Did you try to merely raise the CPU priority of the service in question?
- this methode helped a weakling of mine - but it wasn't a service, though.

If it is stolen anyway, it would bee good if LocatePC already was installed.

Quote from: LocatePC
If the worst happens to your computer and it is stolen then usually there's no way to track where it is. That's where LocatePC comes in.

LocatePC sends you a secret email message from your computer containing vital information that can help you and law enforcement track a stolen computer, and eventually return it to you.

LocatePC is free software, and runs unobtrusively on your computer, with no icons, popups or saved emails. If your computer is stolen then the thief will not even know that LocatePC is running, and as soon as they connect to the internet a secret email is sent to you containing the details that you need to track your hardware.

5094  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Spartan Multi Clipboard on: November 09, 2007, 05:37:38 PM
I have been running the M8 Spartan clipboard for a couple of months by now, and I like it a lot; I think it is worth the price. Only one little feature bothered me: Spartan has an activation button which will pop up whenever the mouse pointer reaches the pre-selected edge of the screen. But this would also happen in the corners, meaning that the button in my setup would get in the way when I was trying to close a maximized window. So finally I pulled my act together and wrote M8 and asked for option not to activate in the corners. 50 hours later I recieved an email from John Turnbull telling that my feature request had been met, and the new version was ready for download.

In merely 50 hours! Fine service!!  thumbs up

"of its time"????  I still use TClockEx 1.42 today - it is installed om every PC I own!!

Why? Didn't you upgrade to XP or Vista? I don't think TClockEx looks good on XP (so now I am using BetaClock from AlfaClock. (Hmmm... I see there is also a version that comes with "a loader" - I haven't noticed that one before. I think I will try it now!).
5096  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Perfect Software? on: November 09, 2007, 12:00:34 PM
... a question: does anyone know of a software company that said at some point, "this thing we make is as good as it needs to be, so we're not going to improve it anymore?"

A perfect program of its time was Dale Nurden's TClockEx 1.42

Also, Alexander Davidson's MetaPad 3.5, as mentioned on page 1.

... TIMEOUT.EXE on your system, ... can be had as part of the Server 2003 Resource kit.

Were you referring to Timeit.exe , not timeout ??
- I don't see any timeout.exe at the page you linked to.

I think of wide screen as ten thousand old wallpapers that will no more fit the screen.

And as letters and documents looking different on the recievers screen, from what I intended them to.

Edit: BTW:
My LCD is from before LCD was invented, I guess; it is from the previous century. 786,432 pixels.

"Unread Topics" is listing 25 threads I am supposed not to have read, but I know for sure that I have read 5 of them. It seems not to be too accurate. Of course there are hundreds or thousands of topics I haven't read. Anyway, I have never before used this feature, and I don't think I will again.
