You can use Process Explorer, also from SysInternals, instead of Task Manager. In Process Explorer, Chrome has a "parent" process and each opened tab appears as a "child" process of this "parent" process. You can completely kill Chrome by killing the "parent" process. There is also an option, "Kill the Process Tree", but it seems it is not necessary in this case.

Ok, I don't have any more ideas.  :(

Does anybody know a tool for this task? I know that for Linux there are a few good ones...

I think it may not be able to run from command line, probably it only works on XP.
But a useful think I discovered:


"A Data Collector Set can be created and then recorded individually, grouped with other Data Collector Set and incorporated into logs, viewed in Performance Monitor, configured to generate alerts when thresholds are reached, or used by other non-Microsoft applications. It can be associated with rules of scheduling for data collection at specific times."

How you tried Windows 7 Resource and Performance Monitor? From what I know, you can make it monitor all the resource elements that you want and save all the data in a log (for this I think that it may be necessary to start it from command line, but i'm not sure about this). From what I know, Process Explorer from Sysinternals cannot save data in a log file.

Here are a few sites I found when searching it on google:


Living Room / Re: Help? Learning how to drive...
« on: August 24, 2009, 01:59 AM »
As an ex-beginner, I have 3 recommendations:
- practice: practice as much as you can, before and after you get your license; after you get your license, travel as much as you can on different types of road, from city-center at rush hour to mountain roads
- if you make mistakes, don't loose your confidence; it is just the normal process of learning
- if you find yourself in a situation when you have to make a choice (e.g.: an intersection), and one of the alternatives would put you into a dangerous position, don't do it; do just what you are confident you can do, even if the other drivers start to car

After 3000-5000 km you will become very confident into yourself and will know very good the car's limits. Be careful when changing the car. Every car behaves differently and the type of the motor (diesel or gas) as well as it's power are very important. If you plan to drive in Europe, it could be necessary to learn how to drive cars with manual transmission, as there are few cars with automatic transmission here.

Good luck and drive safe!

It also happened to me, on Firefox 3.5, but on the Yahoo webpage, 1 or 2 times, but I have never saw it on DC. I have also seen it on previous versions of Firefox on the Yahoo website (and in other websites too). As Mouser stated, after a refresh (F5) the page turns to normal. It appears very rarely and I am not annoyed that I have to press F5 once in a while.

Do you get this often?

Living Room / Re: Giampy... how does it sound?
« on: June 29, 2009, 09:30 AM »
In Romanian it resembles a little with "geam", which means window. And in English it reminds me of "jump" (the way these 2 are pronounced is more or less similar).

Find And Run Robot / Re: Faster startup by disabling plugins ?
« on: June 29, 2009, 09:26 AM »
I have also noticed this issue. The first time when I open FARR, after the computer boots, it searches for plugins for between 0.5 and 1 second.

Developer's Corner / Multithreading tutorials
« on: June 23, 2009, 01:47 AM »
Hello to everyone,

I want to develop some multithreading skills and I was wondering if you could recommend me some online tutorials (or books) with some theory and/or with examples in C/C++/MFC.

Thanks a lot!

Living Room / Re: ExtremeTech website closing
« on: June 23, 2009, 01:33 AM »
This is sad news, indeed.  :(

Will the articles that were published until now still be available?

C and Perl here.

Another free, portable and very nice application: Scanner

I think Curt's complaint with swreg is that they don't indicate the price with VAT before the final checkout screen - this is a bit misleading.
You are right. But if the company is not in EU maybe it is not obliged, by the law of the country in which it operates, to show VAT until checkout.

Is the site (or the store) in the EU? The only EU countries that have a VAT of 25% are Denmark and Sweden. If I am not wrong, any site/store sells with the VAT and obeys the rules of the country in which it resides.

DC Gamer Club / Re: 30 PC Games to Play Before You Die
« on: May 04, 2009, 02:34 AM »
I highly recommend Rome: Total War and it's successor, Medieval: Total War II (and even Empire: Total War, but after the bugfixing is over). These are some great games!

There are 3 reasons I like them:
1) History: the games are inspired by our own history. The game developers tried very hard to respect the historical past and the geographical truth, and in most cases they succeeded. So you play and, at the same time, you learn history and geography. Isn't that great? (my sister got an 10(= an A in USA) just because she played this game and she knew how to answer a question in the class)
2) Strategy: you have to think like a strategist. You must make very good thought decisions in order to expand your territory and manage your towns and cities.
3) Tactics: you command armies on the battlefield. You must know the weaknesses and strengths of each type of unit and use them accordingly.

Who wouldn't like to be a little virtual Cesar (or Alexander Macedon, or Hannibal or...)?

From Wikipedia:
"A service is the diametrically opposed non-material counterpiece of a physical good."

For example: transportation, healthcare, education are services while a good is something material that you purchase: a car, food etc.

Is there any economist that can explain better?

Living Room / Re: Best programming books ?
« on: April 24, 2009, 01:15 AM »
At the beginning I recommend this one: C Programming Language by Brian W. Kernighan and Dennis M. Ritchie

And then, for C++, see this topic (the books recommended by mouser):

This is very interesting. Thank you!

Here is an Audio Slideshow from BBC, that presents approximately the same facts:

Living Room / Re: Should I switch from xp to vista?
« on: April 09, 2009, 02:23 AM »
So, when will we see 128 bit PCs? Are there any 128 processors on the market, for servers (and OSs)?

Find And Run Robot / Re: Alias For Dictionary App?
« on: April 09, 2009, 01:59 AM »
I know how to create an alias:


but not how to pass the word to sage.

Can somebody help?

From what I have heard, Windows 7 will be the last Microsoft OS that will have both a 32 and a 64 bit version. The next one will be only 64, probably.

If I were in your place I would do what sgtevmckay suggested: wait for Windows 7 (the 64 bit version ;)).

Find And Run Robot / Re: Need some help here
« on: April 08, 2009, 04:21 AM »
Ok, I found how to do it.  :D

1) open FARR.
2) open the options.
3) in Lists, go to Aliases/Groups.
4) from "Select Aliases/Group file to configure" select myaliases.alias
5) right click in the empty space and choose "Add new entry"
6) in the "Group Alias Name" enter utorrent (or what you want)
7) in the Results enter the path to utorrent (or click the open folder icon from the bottom and go to the executable)
8) click OK. the next time you search utorrent in FARR, it will the first option

FARR - it is a GREAT program!

I think this is down by using aliases, but I do not know exactly how to configure it. Hope a more expert member will lighten us.

I have the same problem with this program, but I search for "torrent" to open the program.

In Access it doesn't help.
