Talking I Need Vista Tips :)

Hello,

It finally happend last night! I switched to Vista Ultima 64 bit from XP
Cant say that I'm really impressd, but having something new to play around is defenatelly a benefit.

Everytime I try and open some programs "Vista needs permision to continue" "Microsoft Management Console" how do I disable this thing? Its driving me nuts!

Also if u guys can provide some tips to improve my experience with Vista plz do so, all tips and trick are welsome.

Thanks

i havent used vista in awhile, so this might sound a fuzzy.
to disable that "permission thing" i think you go to the User Account option, then there should a option in there which allows you to disable the "permission" thing, and after disabling it, it should tell you to restart.
sorry if that sounds a bit confusing, but play around in the user accounts

I have vista my tweaks are recommend by myself LMFAO

Here:

Right click my computer, properties/advanced system settings/advanced tab/settings on performance: choose Adjust for best performence.

Looks slacky? well it runs faster.

as for that thats all I have.

lol nah google it man you'll find lots.

also you cant see run? right click start, properties, customize and go down the list and tick RUN

anyway in regedit theirs lots, I figured a way to make windows shut down fast and start faster, I found these tweaks on google.

I don't know why everyone is complaining about UAC. People said they wanted security from a Microsoft OS, well with Vista, they've got security and they complain about it!

The annoying part about UAC is the fact that it pops up for any program imaginable. More security in my opinion would mean preventing unwanted programs, viruses, etc from starting themselves on the computer.

In my opinion, UAC is there for the ultimate newbie who just bought his FIRST computer.

Four months strong on my computer with absolutely no problems.
Seven months strong on my laptop and absolutely no problems.

I don't see a problem with turning off UAC as long as you're sensible while surfing the web.

Ant, with all due respect you just love to assume things you *hear* from others.

I download dozens of files every single day on this computer. I visit countless websites, deal with many programs at the same time, and sometimes they are from untrusted sources/etc. I exercise caution when surfing the web, and if I absolutely HAVE to visit a website or download files that might be dangerous, I take major precautions to prevent anything.

To this day, Spybot, Avast!, AVG, Norton, McAfee, Adaware, and Kaspersky have not found ONE problem on my computer. Not ONE. Just because your computer (or your friend's) has had problems without UAC doesn't mean others will definitely have them, too.

I spend 4h yesterday with this guys helping me to calibrate my sensors. There were some impovements but the difference is still kind of big... This guys has a GREAT guide on how to calibare ur sensors using "SpeedFan" (see 4th post in the thread link) here is a thread of my progress.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/25...450-high-temps


Ambient Temp = 21c

Idle:

CPU = 23-24c = (24c)
Core 0 = 24-25c = (25c)
Core 1 = 25-26c = (26c)
Core 2 = 32-33c = (33c)
Core 3 = 30-31c = (31c)

Load:

CPU = 28-31
Core 0 = 29-35c = (32c)
Core 1 = 30-35c = (33c)
Core 2 = 34-39c = (37c)
Core 3 = 34-38c = (36c)

I think its a big progress considering the difference in temps b4 was about 13c! My PC been only "Alive" for 2 days (not used much coz of work) so the temps will still change a bit, ac5 needs time to sink in.

Those are some amazing temperatures. Is that with 100% load? ANd what program are you using to test?

These new chips look pretty promising as far as overclocking might go. Oh, and your temperature range between cores is quite normal now. I wouldn't worry about it any further at all.

Thank you for encouraging words I'm still very new when it comes to stress testing and OC, I'm reading OC guide at work right now ( only if they new ) The program was Prime 95 small FFT's (I don’t think it was 100% load)

Hm, well Prime 95 is a great program to use; I use it for my overclocking tests, too. However, you're running a quad-core (right?) and I believe there is a way to have the program run FOUR worker threads in order to max out the CPU. When you open up the Torure Test menu, you set the threads to 4 instead of 1.

O geez u right! That’s my noobist knowledge for u there. Now I will need to bother that guy again to help me calibrate the thing once more! I literally spend 4h last night doing that lol, well now that I know what to expect I hope the process will go quicker. I just hope he will decide to help me do this again lol.

Also there is an option in the P95 for available memory to use. It refers to the RAM memory right? I have 4g what should I set it to, 3g?

I've never actually tried a custom test, and therefore haven't touched the memory settings for P95. Do you want to specifically test the memory or are you just curious about the setting? I'd leave it alone for now, or just do a Blend test so it tests some of everything.

And also, why do you have to mess around with the calibrations again? I don't see how it would make a difference? I think you'll be fine by just setting your torture threads to (4) and observing temperatures.

Well because the difference betwin cores 0,2 & 3,4 was about 14c Cores 0-1 were 32c and Cores 2-3 were 46c (about)
