Customize your Windows right-click menu
Who doesn't love to right-click, especially when browsing the Web? Whether saving images we like to our local drives, copying HTML links to send to friends, or scanning downloaded files for viruses, the right-click has become an essential part of most users' computing lives.

Yet how many times have you right-clicked on a file in Windows and then painfully scoured a long list to find the only option you need; sometimes it's the only one you ever use. Wouldn't life be much simpler to have only the items you want in your right-click menu? Well, for Windows Explorer, it's mostly possible, and the free utility FileMenu Tools makes it rather simple.

Looks like a keeper to me!

I need an expert from out of town. Hell, maybe from out of the country?

"As of 2007 onwards, Samsung Semiconductors is expected to use its proprietary “Through Silicon Via” (TSV) with an all-DRAM stacking configuration – "................

The above line is from the website Memory Secrets.
I've downloaded the site and trying to edit out all extraneous script, etc., so I can compile it into a .chm file. That site is in the UK and I can't figure out how to clean up the formatting when I edit and save in Notepad ++.
There are several options for different formats such as Windows Format, Unix Format, UTF-8 with BOM, and more, but I still wind up with Greek in a saved file. Quotation marks and apostrophes seem to be the biggest offenders.
Am I making any sense and can anybody help? I'm too old to cry!

There's a passel of powerful memory information available at this site. The article is now up to four parts and every one is a keeper.
There is a list of Related Info links at the bottom of each page for those with a lust for this stuff!   8)

Ryan Leng is an independent technology consultant and auditor for corporations in computer systems involving hardware, software, networking, security, IT policy formulation and training.

Originally trained in Computer Science and Economics, he has since worked in many fields relating to computer hardware integration, software design and engineering, surveillance systems, advertising, multimedia production, user-Interface engineering and graphic designs.

Ryan approached bit-tech with his unpublished book on DDR technology a short while ago, and when we read it we were greatly impressed with the depth and attention to detail, as well as being able to convey complex ideas in an easy to understand manner.

Whether you are adept in the knowledge of memory technology, it’s still an interesting read for a fundamental part of a PC architecture. We’ve cut his work up into several parts, the first of which we’ve published here covers the basics. The information published here is merely an excerpt of a much larger document.

I thought maybe BigJim was getting antsy to get on the road?

I'm finding some answers. The problem is not in or filenoter.exe. The problem is Avast. I haven't heard from them yet but I removed Avast from the XPPro machine and installed AVG. The filenoter.exe file is unlocked, the context menu works as designed. Filenoter, filenotes, Universal Viewer are all back and working fine.

Unfortunately I can't say the same for XPPro64. Reinstalling filenoter doesn't help.  The upgrade from Moon Software that BigJim mentioned earlier is available for download so I installed that but there's no change in the context menu so the corruption persists. I'm going to try a repair install now and see what happens. If push comes to shove I can do a clean install to a new drive, identical to the drive that's in the machine.
