Can I remove the USB Drive directly from the system without using the "safely Remove Hardware icon" from the System Tray?

I found this is a Very Common habit of all of us. Once we connect the USB Drive in to machine and after completion of work sometimes we forget to use the "Safely Remove hardware Icon" before disconnect the USB Drive.
If you want that this should not harm on to your machine and the USB Drive, We can Use the Option "Optimize for Quick Removal".
Right click on the USB drive icon in My Computer.Select the Hardware tab.Select your USB drive and click on Properties.Now click on Policies tab.Now Select the "Optimize for Quick Removal".

How to backup Vipre Database and Policies?

Hello Friends,

We are Going to talk about the Process of Taking Backup of Settings and Configuration of Vipre Database. We should be having that data in Our Hand (Remote Location or on Backup Server) so that whenever the Vipre Giving some Problem or Some Settings has been changed, We can restore it from somewhere.

There are 2 Scenarios :-
1) Vipre Database with SQLLite
2) Vipre Database with SQL

1) Vipre Database with SQLLite:-
To check whether your database is with SQL Lite, Check for the Services > SQL Server (Sunbelt).
If this Service is not Listed under Services it means your database is running via SQLLite.

In this Scenario, If you want to take Backup of Your Databases/Configuration, You have to Visit at Below Location of Your Machine/Server in which this Vipre installed:-
XP and 2003
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GFI Software\VIPRE Business
Vista Win7 or 2008
C:\Programdata\GFI Software\VIPRE Business

From above mention Location You have to Copy the SQL Lite and Con…

Error:8193 Source:VSS

We have a terminal Server with windows server 2008 R2 Standard. We found that we keep receiving the Error 8193 with Source VSS.

The error (Event 8193) is: Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine ConvertStringSidToSid. hr = 0x80070539.

As I never like any Error in the Event viewer so I searched on Internet.

According to the research, the issue may be caused by an invalid entry inside the following registry sub tree. Please open the registry editor with regedit. Open this Key. HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList Expand and local to the subtree, check if there is an entry that has a ".bak" value or ".old" appended. If so, this may be cause the failure when trying to resolve the SID of the writer. Please backup the registry key first, and then delete that entry with the extra ".bak" and ".old". I rebooted the problematic server to check if it the issue can be fixed.

and the magic happen..!! …
