For the past few days I was experiencing a rather strange issue on my computer that made the mouse double-click sometimes when I did a single left-click. While that was not a problem all the time, it sometimes broke my workflow, for instance when trying to select a folder or deleting tags here in WordPress. The result was a different action than intended, the folder for instance was opened instead of selected.I suspected that it could be caused by two things. First a setting or driver issue,...

How To Fix Aero Issues In Windows 7

I received an error message that Aero was not enabled the first time I tried to install the custom Mac OS X theme for Windows 7.

After switching to full Aero with a right-click on Personalize and the selection of an Aero theme in the themes manager, I received the same error message again.Something was not working properly, which made the theme installer...

Use TeamViewer for remote Linux support

Have you ever been asked to do any Linux desktop remote support only to find out the client didn’t have secure shell (so no tunneling of X) nor did they have a vnc server setup?

When the machine would boot the CPU was pegging out at 100%, causing the GUI to be nearly unresponsive. I attempted to run AVG, Avast, Malwarebytes – but all for naught. The machine was so slow it seemed as if installing a simple anti-virus tool was going to take me an entire 40 hour work week. So I opted for a different approach. Instead of allowing...
