Solution: Google Earth: ‘DirectX’ mode not supported

I’ve been using Google Earth on various computers and laptops until i installed Google Earth on Fujitsu Lifebook S6421. The problem doesn’t lie in the proper drivers that are not installed or directx 9.0c. It should also affect: Fujitsu Lifebook S6421BW, S6420WS.

I even went to install DirectX 10 on my Windows XP. But it still fails.

– Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings tab
– Click ‘Advanced’ button, ‘Troubleshoot’ tab
– Under ‘Hardware acceleration’
– Move the lever to Full
– Check ‘Enable write combining’
– Press ‘Ok’

Now try Google Earth again!

Solution: Uninstall/Removing TrendMicro OfficeScan Password

I have been searching everywhere on removing Trend Micro OfficeScan pre-installed on laptops bought in SMU matriculation. I’ve successfully uninstalled it, here’s the solution if anybody is interested.

Necessary steps:
#1. Change Registry Keys
AllowUninstall value to 1
NoPwdProtect value to 1

#2. Disconnect from the Internet / Disable Wireless/LAN Adapter

#3. Modify certain values in C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\OfcScan.ini

– Change the Keys to these Values

Save Ofcscan.ini, Uninstall. It didn’t prompt me for a password, but if it did, enter “1”.
* if it doesnt work, restart the laptop/computer, disable internet connection, then uninstall.

I’ve installed ESET NOD32 over this.
