Don't be fooled by Google's personal search results

My site ranks on page 1 of Google, I just checked it. No it doesn't, the search term you are typing has millions of competitors and your own web site doesn't even have keywords in the title. That was my thought after speaking with a client when reviewing their site.

Another site to check rankings through private browsing is Starting Page.

If you know of any tools which do the same please share them. Scroogle was an excellent tool for this but it was recently shut down. We'll see how long Starting Page stays with us.

CD/DVD Drive Not Recognised In Windows

Is your CD/DVD Drive missing in Windows? Thinking of phoning tech support to get a new one?

Try this first it may just fix it. Some CD & DVD Burning software installs filters within the Windows registry.

You can delete the Upper and Lower Filters which cause this problem of the drive not being recognised or missing in My Computer.

Fix:

  1. Click the Start button, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:
  3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
  4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  5. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
  6. Click Yes when prompted to delete the registry value.
  7. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
  8. Click Yes when prompted to delete the registry value.
  9. Quit Registry Editor. To do this, click Exit on the File menu.
  10. Restart the computer.

Hope that helps!!!
