As we all know it is very easy and fast to blog with help of Microsoft’s free tool Windows Live Writer. But when it comes to formatting or reformatting operating system, there is a chance of loss of WLW data. But Now you can move securely to upgrade or format Windows, without worrying about your Windows Live Writer’s information stored. Whenever you format your PC/ Laptop, it is required to re-install Windows Live Writer, and all the previous linking database is lost. Scott has come up with a solution to this problem. He made a small program know as Windows Live Writer backup hosted at codeplex. You can download this here.
Basic Requirements to run this release are-
- You must have .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.
- If you’re running Vista or Win7, to run the program you will require elevated permissions(administrative). Unfortunately, this is only required for restoring a backup.

Windows error reporting is made to support Microsoft to improve the bugs found in OS, but sometimes this error reporting causes annoyance. This problem I was facing for last so many days…, getting error report message whenever I exit from my favorite DOS based game Dave. It also happens with some soft wares too…. So, I got to remove this and used my ultimate tool “Google Search”
I found that there are two methods of removing the Annoyance caused by error reporting, the one is Registry Editing Based (Advanced Method), and other is Non Registry based (Easy Method). I’ll explain the easy method first-
- Right click on My Computer Icon on desktop.
- Click Properties.
- Click on Advanced Tab in System Properties page.
- Then click on Error Reporting.
- Select Disable Error Reporting to Disable it
- Do not select notify for critical errors if you do not want to see error reporting message, ever again…
Other method of getting rid of this Windows Error Reporting is use of Windows Registries directly, I’ve made a registry file, which when added to registry, will disable Error Reporting in Microsoft Windows XP, click here to download the registry file (ErrorReporting.reg).
Just double-click ErrorReporting.reg and click on yes to merge the registry information, and you will be free from Windows Error Reporting message.
From Saturday, June 13th, you will be getting a unique usernames just like other sites such as LinkedIn. This will help others to find you easily on Google or other search engines. Earlier the profile is identified by the unique number that it has at the end of the url of the pages you visit. The URL was just a randomly assigned number like "id=592952074." That soon will change. When your friends, family members or co-workers visit your profile or Pages on Facebook, they will be able to enter your username as part of the URL in their browser. This way people will have an easy-to-remember way to find you.
Facebook usernames will be available in basic text forms, and you can only choose a single username for your profile and for each of the Pages that you administer. Your username must be at least five characters in length and only include alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), or a period or full stop ("."). While usernames are currently available only for Romanized text, we’re looking at how we might support non-Romanized characters in the future.
Think carefully about the username you choose. Once it’s been selected, you won’t be able to change or transfer it. If you signed up for a Facebook Page after May 31 or a user profile after today at 3 p.m. EDT, you may not be able to sign up for a username immediately because of steps we’ve taken to prevent abuse or "squatting" on names.
I am using windows operating system for last decade and also sometime install Linux based distributions for testing purposes, this time I’ve found something really amazing to test operating system on my PC, and this amazing thing is React OS. It is Windows NT based open-source operating system, which supports Windows binary (exe) to run in it.
React OS is still under heavy development and is in alpha stage of development. The developers itself recommend not to use for daily purposes, till some more improvements are made; but if you are a computer geek and love to try out different OS, then you may give it a try. You can download React OS by various means-
- Download React OS as Installation CD, Live CD
- You can also run it virtualized using VMware virtual machine or QMenu
- You can also get the source code of React OS
You can get to downloads page of React OS at here.
Please give your valuable reviews about this OS in comments section.
