Enable Windows System Restore To Avoid Any Corruption

You may not strange to Windows backup anymore, but maybe you don’t know that Windows OS also has the system restore function. This feature allows you to generate snapshots of your Windows system and will restore it when any error occurred.

When you choose to enable this feature, Windows OS will automatically create snapshots of the system and save on your hard drive. When something goes wrong with the Windows OS, it will use these snapshots to recover the computer.

For example, if you face the DPC watchdog violation issue, it will turn the whole computer to a blue screen immediately. You won’t be able to open the computer as well as access it. But if you have enabled the system restore function before, there are however a few good restore points that you can roll your Windows computer back.

In fact, these restore points aren’t a complete backup version. It’s just a snapshot of your Windows OS, but can help to revert any wrong on your computer.

To resolve the DPC watchdog violation issue, you may try the above method or need to download the latest version of the firmware on your solid state drive and update it to the most recent one. By that, the problem will be automatically resolved.

Two Methods To Force Quit Mac Applications When They Don’t Respond

Many users are now using Mac OS X computers nowadays, and maybe you too. But do you know Mac OS X is one of the fastest operating systems?

I’m using Mac computers (both Mac Mini and Macbook Pro) for years, and both machines are working fine for now. But sometimes, a few apps didn’t respond to my action, and I need to press hard the power button to force the computer to shutdown and start it again.

After a while of doing it, I realize that there is an easier way you could get your Mac computer back to normal without restarting. When you get any app that didn’t respond to your action and command, just use “Force Quit Mac Applications” function to force that app to close immediately. By that, your computer will be release and no longer frozen.

If you are using a Mac OS X computer and don’t know how to launch the Force Quit Mac Applications, just press Command, Shift, and Esc keys at a time. A new and small window of this tool will be opened and allows you to select and close any application.

You can also use Activity Monitor, aka Task Manager for Mac OS X to find and force that application to quit immediately. To open the Activity Monitor program, open Spotlight by pressing Command + Space and then search for the Activity Monitor.
