Remove hiberfil.sys

The hiberfil.sys is created and used when hibernating in Windows. Sometimes can be needed to help shrink the space on a drive.

Launch a command prompt with administrator privileges.

You can hit Windows Key + R, type in cmd, and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter together. It’ll ask you to verify that you want to launch it. Hit Yes.
Alternatively you can search for the Command Prompt, Right click on it and Run as Administrator

Turn Hibernate off

powercfg -h off

A reboot should remove the file. If not you should be able to delete it. It is on the root of the drive, but you’ll need to enable hidden files and disable the “Hide protected operating system files” to see it.

You can turn it back on by changing off to on

powercfg -h on

Unable to access old HTTPS login for WiFi router

Part of the reason some of the older sites do not work is due to insecurities in older SSL protocol’s. Some of the older versions are disabled in newer browsers thereby keeping someone from accessing the device.

Unsupported protocol

Work Around

Internet Explorer will let you change the security settings to allow older security protocols to work. Chrome and Firefox seem to have issues letting you do that.

Open Internet Explorer and then go to the Internet Options and find the Advanced tab. Scroll down and locate the “Use SSL3.0” option and enable it.

Enable SSL 3.0

You may also need to modify the Zones.

Change Internet Zones

You should now be able to accept the Security Certificate and log in.

Proceed to login page for site

This should only be done if absolutely needed and only on sites you trust. It would be a good idea to change the settings back when finished.

Unity Game Scene tab flickers during game play

There appears to be an issue with HDPI displays and the Unity Game tab while testing the game in unity. Have had issues where the UI elements will resize and not work correctly. Issue seems to be with how Windows scales the screen.

Dropping the scaling to 100% and/or the resolution down to 1920×1080 seems to resolve the issue.
