ScreenRecorder

Upon doing some research for a screen recorder to do some tech support with, I came upon a program called, ScreenRecorder by:  Burak Uysaler, whom I do believe works for Microsoft as a Technology Specialist.

This Screen Recorder is just about as easy to use as you could ever ask for. It records the file in a .wmv format, and also works well on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, ScreenRecorder will work with 32 and 64bit Windows. The program comes with 64 and 32bit installers along with the WMEncoder.

Install Instructions:
Just download the program and choose the 32 or 64 bit version to match your Windows OS. Click on the setup.exe.

Download Link:
Click here to download ScreenRecorder

Usage Instructions
1.     
Select either Full Screen or the program window from the drop down list that you want to record, you can also check the audio box if you want to record audio narration with it, and then click OK.  
I do not believe that it works well in Full Screen mode with Dual Monitors! If you want full screen just set your display to a single screen mode. Program windows in dual screen work fine.

2.       Just click on “Please click here to specify filename” to give your video a name then save, when ready click “START” to begin capturing. Screenrecorder will start to capture your chosen screen to the video file of the name you specified earlier. You can also pause/resume capturing at any time. When you click “STOP”, the “PLAY” button will be displayed at the bottom right. Just click it and your captured video will be played by your default video player for .wmv files. That’s all folks enjoy!

How to delete ICONS from the Games menu, in Vista or Windows 7 Menu folder that will not delete by right clicking.

Have you ever put ICONS in the Games menu in Vista or Windows 7 that don’t work and will not let you delete them? Here is how to delete them from within the Registry.

Say you want to delete the Xfire ICON, but something happened to it that it is broke and does not work or give you a right click menu to delete or remove it from the list, well the only way to delete it is from the registry.  Below is the process that will show you how!

Warning:

Do not mess with the Registry if you do not know what you are doing, removing or making changes incorrectly can cause severe problems with your Windows Operating system. I will not be responsible for any damage or lost programs, files or data.

  1. Go to Start Menu, type regedit and press <Enter>. This will open the Registry Editor.
  2. In the editor navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / Software / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion / GAMEUX. There are several long numbers (also called GUIDs) listed under GAMEUX.
  3. Click on each one until you see the info on the Right side of the window.
  4. Once you find the key info that contains the name of the ICON you want to remove, just right click on it and delete that registry entry folder.
  5. By deleting the one I have highlighted yellow and circled in red it will delete the ICON called XFire.
