« Last post by JDBush61 on Today at 01:57:01 AM »
Bob and Ted decided to start a new holiday business. They would buy spruce Christmas trees for one dollar each from a woodsman in Maine, then truck them to New York City and sell them for one dollar per tree.

After a few trips...

Bob: "Hey!... we're not making a lot of money."
Ted: "Yeah, I know. We need a bigger truck!"
Jokes / Maine Ice Fishing
« Last post by JDBush61 on Today at 01:50:48 AM »
One cold January day, Bob was riding his snowmobile across a frozen lake in Maine when he spotted his friend Ted sitting in the snow at the side of the lake, repeatedly casting a fishing lure out onto the ice and reeling it back in.

Bob: "What the heck are you doing?"
Ted: "Huh? I'm ice fishing, can't you see?"
Bob: "That's not how you ice fish! ... hop on the back of my sled and we'll troll."

Defraggler is a free file defragmentation tool from Piriform, the company that brought you CCleaner and Recuva. It differs from other defrag tools on the market, by enabling you to quickly and simply defrag the files you want to, without having to process the whole drive. Simply run it, select the file and defragment in seconds. No more struggling with the Windows defragmentation tool! And like all Piriform products, Defraggler is completely free for both corporate and individual use.

Defrag Individual Files or Drives
Most defrag tools only allow you to defrag an entire drive. Defraggler lets you specify one or more files, folders, or the whole drive to defragment. Pick the trouble spots on your hard drive - like your favorite videos, your business software, or your Web browser. Defraggler does exactly what you tell it to.
Interactive drive map
At a glance, you can see how defragmented your hard drive is. Defraggler's drive map shows you blocks that are empty, not fragmented, or needing defragmentation. To see the files on an area of your hard drive, click the colored block. Or, view all of the files on your hard drive sorted by size, path, or number of fragments. Want to save the list for later? Defraggler has a report option which lets you save lists of all or some files to a text log.
Defragment free space
Most defrag tools only defrag files on a drive. Defraggler goes one step further and defragments the free space, too. If your free space is defragmented and all chopped up, new files written to that space will end up defragmented right away. Defraggler can defragment free space so new files are automatically all in one place, making your hard drive run faster and Windows work more effectively.
Move large files to end of drive
Hard drives are fastest at the beginning of the drive and slowest at the end. If the files you use most often are at the beginning, your PC will run faster. You can tell Defraggler to put your large files (such as archives, videos, or backups) at the end of the drive and it will automatically put the smaller, often-used ones at the front. The result? More efficient use of hard drive space and faster computing.
Defragging in the background
Don't waste precious time. Defraggler runs in the background so you can continue to work, play, and have fun. It's small and uses few system resources, so you won't experience any slowdowns in the process.
Scheduled defragmentation
Defragment while you sleep - and wake up with a faster PC. Set Defraggler to run daily, weekly, or monthly and be assured that it's keeping your hard drive speedier, more reliable, and more efficient.
Portable version
You never know when you'll be asked to fix a slow PC. If you're the tech guru in the family, you may be called upon to help while visiting your favorite uncle…or the neighbors down the street. Defraggler's portable version is self-contained and fits on a USB drive, so you're always ready to help.
Multi-language support
No matter what your native tongue is, Defraggler speaks your language. It currently supports 37 all major languages, including English.
Runs on Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003 and 2000. Including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

  • Click on Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next.
On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

  • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.

  • In the command window type e:\frst.exe (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
    Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive (which F may be the assigned number for the device)
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the flash drive. Please copy and paste this log in your Topic.
Please keep me informed if you have any troubles.
