Deepburner

Last week I felt the need to burn some information on to DVD and having just recently formatted my hard drive and installed Vista I found that I didn’t have any recording software apart from the fairly basic functionality built in to Windows. Thinking this wasn’t a problem I headed to the Ahead website [...]

DBAN

My business partner at our webdesign company Refresh Creations recently started talking to me about wiping all data from a computer that I was set to sell on eBay. The computer in question had a fair amount of sensitive information on it and he seemed horrified that I was just going to wipe the hard [...]

DriveImage XML

Many times in the past I have been guilty of having a ‘do as I say and not as I do’ attitude and this is especially true when it comes to the subject of backing up. When I used to fix computers for a living whenever a hard drive issue was encountered I always said [...]

Kubuntu

Last week we talked a little bit about Linux and I introduced you to a program called Slax which served the purpose of being a perfect introduction for those new to this Operating System. The big downside to Slax was that it wasn’t really designed for installing on to a hard drive and so didn’t [...]

Slax

For a while now I’ve given readers free access to an archive of old Herald Express Click articles online at the website address www.computerarticles.co.uk.

My original review last year focussed on the [...]

Happy Birthday Windows

It’s a month full of birthdays as not only 24 years ago this week was yours truly bought into the world but it is also twenty years this month that the first copies of Windows began shipping onto the market. I thought to celebrate we would take a quick look back over the Windows history.

Digital Cameras

A scary realisation hit me a few weeks back when a relative asked if I had a photo of myself that they could have to add to a family album that was being prepared as part of a birthday present for my Granddad. After around ten minutes of looking I realised that [...]

Readers suggestions

Once again I’ll take the time off this week to help one of my readers take care of their computer woes.

I wonder if you could help, I am looking for some free software which “undeletes” pictures from an SD media card. I accidentally (believe it or not) deleted [...]

Windows Power Options

One of my loyal readers Ian McMillan suggested that perhaps I should focus an article on the power options available in Windows as the most people won’t get any further than using the ‘shut down’ option when they have finished using their machine and there are some potentially more useful options available to users of [...]
