5. This will open a dialog box as shown below. Select the options you want ans click ok.

6. Now as you can see the ubuntu disk is mounted and ready to be used.

7. Open the disk and run wubi.exe. As you can see there is no option for installing ubuntu alongside windows 7, Because it has been disabled in the new versions of ubuntu.

8. To enable this feature. Press windows+r. This will open the run dialog box. write “cmd” and press enter. This will open command prompt. Now write “V:/wubi.exe –force-wubi” and press enter.

9. This will also open wubi. But this time it has one more option in the middle: Install inside windows. Click on it.

10. Now select the drive where you want to install ubuntu. I recommend using C drive because using other drives sometimes end up in errors. Choose disk space(Recommended: at least 12 GB). Choose your username and password and click install.

11. Now let the process complete. After completion of the process restart the computer. Now your computer will automatically boot into ubuntu and installation process will start. Installation process is pretty straight forward so I am not going to talk about it here. The installation process can take 30-60 minutes. Depending upon your pc. After the installtion you will see 2 boot options: (i)Windows 7/xp/vista (ii) ubuntu. Select ubuntu.

If you get stuck at any stage while installing ubuntu just leave a comment. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I know that most of you must be using vlc media player as your primary video player and most of you haven’t even heard about kmplayer. So today I am going to introduce you to the best video and music player. Kmplayer can play every single video format out there. It plays every video that can be played by vlc media player.

KMPlayer Features:

1. The amazing start screen:

Kmplayer has some cool apps on its start screen. Screen shot of some this apps is shown below.

Billboard:

K-Pop hot 100:

3D Movie Plus:

This is the best app of kmplayer. We can find new 3d videos using this app.

2. KMP 3D:

The best feature of kmplayer is it can play 3d videos. It doesn’t even take much of your memory. So your pc doesn’t slow down.

3. KMPlayer music player:

Kmplayer music player is also better than any other music players out there.

4. Easy shortcut keys:

Vlc media player shortcuts are really annoying. You have to press ctrl+right/left/up/down keys to control forward/backward or to control volume. In kmplyer you don’t need to press ctrl just press right/left/up/down.

5. Start up time and cpu/ram usage:

Start up time when playing a high defination video:

vlc: 5 seconds

kmplayer: 1 second

cpu usage:

vlc: 17%

kmplayer: 10%

ram usage:

vlc: 60 mb

I recommend that you try KMPlayer for sometime. When I started using kmplayer it was only secondary player for me, the primary player was still vlc media player. But after using it for sometimes now I only use kmplayer. I haven’t used vlc media player for almost 3 months. So download KMPlayer and enjoy its amazing features.

We all hate windows search for being too slow. Sometimes it takes 10-15 minutes just to complete a search. Windows search indexing also eats away your memory and slows down your computer. Here I have searched for the word “hello”. It took 10 minutes to finish.

 

Don’t worry everything is here to rescue you. It is just a 334 kb file. It is amazing how a small software like everything can do so many things. When it start it makes a database which usually takes less than 2 minutes. After that whenever you search from everything it instantly shows the result. First time when I used this software its speed was unbelievable for me. Just after using it for the first time I realized that I will be using this software for the rest of my computing life.
