Speed up copying of Large files in Windows Vista

You may have noticed that Vista has a tendency to take time calculating the size of the file when copying. This is caused by a new 'feature' called Auto Tuning which by default is set on by Microsoft.

To disable this feature, do the following...

1. Open up a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges
2. Type in ... netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
3. The prompt should read... OK
4. You may have to restart the PC for the effects to take hold.

If this does not solve your problem, the autotuning feature can be re-instated by typing...

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal.

Windows 8 Store Not Working - Here's how to fix it.

Windows 8 Store for the most part will work without an issue, however, there are times when an app that is being installed may be stuck or if you lost connection during the middle of an install, the installation may become corrupted. So, how do you fix this... Microsoft are obviously aware that there is an issue here and they provided an APP troubleshooter to the effect... Go to the Microsoft page " What to do if you have problems with an App " and run through the troubleshooting process.
