Problem while installing Windows 7 in VirtualBox

If you want to install Windows 7 via Oracle VirtualBox, you could get a error message like this:
Status: 0xc0000225
Info: An unexpected error has occurred

The installation stops and you have no idea what's going on.

The solution is quick and easy:
  • Shutdown the virtual machine
  • In the main menu choose "System", click the Mainboard / Motherboard tab
  • Check the "Activate IO-APIC" Box. 
  • That's it! Save it and install your system.

How to fix your Windows XP MBR (Facebook Virus)

I created this video, because a new "facebook virus" (Better: A virus spread via FB) prevents your system from booting.

This is a quick solution to fix the boot-problem. After that you should update your Anti virus and do a full system scan.

I will update this post, if I find out more about this virus...

How to fix the double-click problem (Roccat Kone)

I have to say:

I just love my ROCCAT Kone mouse. It's big, it's heavy and it glows. That's all a mouse should have these days. 

But, like ~5 mice in my life, it recently had a big problem: 

If you clicked with your left-mousebutton (LMB) it will perform a nice double click. 
 At first i wanted to send it back to amazon. Then I decided to check it by myself 
(OK, the fact that i didn't had any warranty helped a lot)

Below you'll find the steps taken, but you could also just watch my video.

So here are my steps to bring it back to life:

Step 1
  • Lift the four glider-pads so you can get to the screws. 
  • You could use your hair-dryer to soften the glue a little bit.

Step 2
  • Open it carefully. I didn't had any problem opening it, but be warned.

Step 3 
  • Clean the inside (optional, but highly suggested! ) 
  • Cut out two small adress-label stripes and put them on the small "plastic part" (As shown blow)

That's it! 
Now your Roccat Kone [+] or other mouse should work just fine.
Please let me know if you have some suggestions and if it worked for you!

Another video shows how you might fix it with some oil. I can't tell if this works or not, but the comments seem positive.
