Disabling Superfetch in windows 7 and 8

You know, when you open task manager, in performance tab, you’ll see a new line than in windows xp, there is “cached memory”.
This is supposedly so when you open the application again, it will be faster, but the side effect is that it eats up your RAM, and disastrous result in low physical RAM since it will drive your free RAM to 0, thus snailing your computer.
So to disable it, it will makes your system lag a bit, but at least your RAM will not be reserved for cache…
There are two steps, first is editing the registry and second is disabling the service.

WIndows Phone 8 Blue Screen of Death

This Just happened to my newly bought Nokia Windows Phone 625H.
I used to put the phone in my pants pocket along with other “debris”, just like my old Samsung S2 phone in other pocket.
One day, when I pulled up my WP out from my pocket, it dead, so I start it up, and in continue to restart and showed blue screen for a time before it dead again.
Thing happened like my old android phone, so looking for solution, I look on the internet on how to factory reset WP, and different than android, here how to factory reset it, do it sequentially, not all at once:
– Push power.
– Immediately push and hold volume down key until you see ! (exclamation point).
– Then you push Volume Up.
– Then push Volume Down.
– Then you push Power.
– Then you push Volume Down.

If you do it right it will reset the phone to factory reset, and please immediately update the phone to the latest build.
And there I need to download my applications again, what a bummer.

The picture is too large and will be truncated

There is an error that microsoft seems to happen that not related with the description it is thrown:

This error: “The picture is too large and will be truncated”
It was triggered in my case when I copy (ctrl+c) a column in excel, which was contain only text/number, no picture.
After researching in the internet, I find that this error is triggered because of some conflict with the clip board.
So there are two things that can modify the state of clip board: the memory manager (RAM cleaner) program that can erase/optimize memory.
And program that share clip board, like remote connection program Teamviewer.
For the first cause you must terminate the program while you using Office.
For the second cause, just turn of the option to share the clip board
For example with Teamviewer: you go to Extras>Option>Advance>Clipboard synchronization and uncheck it.
