  1. Hello again. I have found a program that was adequate enough for my purposes. It is Steve Gould's "Windows Clean Up". It was sufficient enough for my purpose. I gave my computer to a lifelong friend whom I trust. If I was selling or giving my computer to any other person I would have wiped the hard drives. I would suggest "Clean Up" to all of you, it has many settings for the amount that you you wish to clean your computer. I have been using it for about five years and it has worked wonderfully for me in keeping my computer in good working condition. Try it, I'm sure that you will be satisfied
  2. Hi. I really did not want to go to all of the work to "Wipe" my PC. I was hoping that there was some sort of appreciation that I was not aware of to clean the computer. But, if it is necessary to wipe it, I am able to do it. Your response is appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Hello to all of you good people. I have an old PC that I want to give to a friend. I want to clean it up w/o wiping the computer. What application will do this but still leave me with a usable computer? Thank you.
  4. Well enough then. I just read the thread. It is hard to tell with some people whether they are serious or not. No offense taken and you have my sincere apologies. btw, I am not one to report. Not my style. btw, even though i have been at the Pit for 6 years, things and people have changed, so I don't know the people, as many are new to me. I am laid up due to a surgery, and it gives me something to do. I'm going crazy!!!!
  5. You are right KD. The English sure are touchy about their sports. Your also right about trying to nip this in the bud. I have seen films of the riots that occur when they have matches. In fact it is probably more dangerous in the stands than it is playing. One thing though, I believe that anyone that weighs 300# and can run a 4.6 100, hits you, you would want to have some type of protection. An American's Football player's average career is 4 yrs. Their life span is shortened by 20 years (on average). Those are terrible injuries that were posted and I could show some fairly graphic injuri
  6. Not knowing a thing about Soccer or Football as you call it. Please explain what you are saying. I know that we both speak the same language (well sort of) but I do not understand a word you guys are talking about. How much does a good Soccer (Footballer) make ? Soccer has just recently started to become big in the States. I guess that parents don't want to see their children get hurt or something. Soccer to me is like watching golf or a chess match. There is simply no excitement. I don't mean to offend anyone, I just don't see the attraction of Soccer. The Soccer "superstar" that came over he
  7. "Narrow Minded'' This animal was a known pedophile! If you would know the damage that that can have on a person maybe you would not be so naive. What I do "understand" is that no more lives will be ruined.
  8. From what I have been reading and watching on TV, it appears that Jackson was not as well liked as what is being reported. I can remember very clearly the deaths of Elvis (whom I was not a big fan of but I did see his obvious talent) and John Lennon (where I have not seen mourning of its like since J.F.K.). Jackson was never told no and I am sorry but even if he himself was abused, it is not an excuse for him to continue. His bizarre behavior foretold his end, such as his constant plastic surgery and his skin bleaching. I feel no pity for a man who was able to reach such heights (in some respe
  9. Michael Jackson was no musical genius. An example of musical genius's ......The Beatles,Mozart, Beethoven etc. Michael Jackson was a pedophile and the world is better of without his likes. He could dance well though.
  10. Thank you for your sound advice . I shall look into them and apply the ones I am comfortable with. Again, thank you! "Peace"
  11. Sorry for my vagueness. C.C. is called Crap Cleaner it is an app. that cleans up your registry,cookies & temp. files. As I have already stated, Vista is new to me and I like to keep my computer (laptop) operating as well as possible. In the past (O.S.'s) I always used the following applications; Spyblaster,AdAware,Spybot S&D & Steve Gould's Windows Clean-up. I would like your advice on what are the best applications to keep my computer clean and operating as well as possible. I believe the people at this forum are among st the best so if you would be so kind as to give me your ad
  12. Hello. I am new to Vista and would like to know what applications i.e.; Ad Aware, Spybot S&D etc, would be good "Freeware" to use. My I.P. supplies McAfee as a anti-virus. I currently only have "C.C." but I would appreciate any other advice in what else would be prudent to use. Are programs like Ad Aware, Spybot still as helpful as they were with older O.S.'s? Thank you for your time and expertise, it is appreciated. "Peace"
  13. Kenny Wayne Shepherd ----- Ledbetter Heights good blues
  14. The Beatles.........."Love" George and Giles Martin are genius.
  15. Hello Juliet. I have done everything that you instructed and I certainly notice a difference in my computer performance. I was even able to d/l Ad Aware, I had tried to update it before and it put my computer into a sort of "Safe Mode" and froze up. I thank you for your time spent and your knowledge. One thing though, you may want to check out your link to ATF Cleaner, no biggie, I was able to locate another source easily enough. Once again Thank You !! You may certainly mark this as "Solved", since I am not able to locate that icon.
  16. Hi, here are the "Logs" you requested. Again, thank you.

  17. Thank you Juliet. I will do as you suggested and Post back when completed. I appreciate your time and knowledge.
  18. Hello. I have been ill lately and when I felt like using my computer again, I updated everything first. I had trouble d/l Ad Aware, It seemed to put my computer into sort of a "safe mode" then I would get messages that there was a problem and would "shut down" , so I tried again with the same results. This time when I removed Ad aware I went into "REGEDIT" to make sure I had cleaned up all of Lavasoft's items. While in the registry I noticed quite a few items that should not be in there. Since my computer is acting sluggishly,I was hoping a Hijack Log may be necessary. I would appreciate any h

    Pete Rose

    Rose stated he never bet against the Reds and that he didn't bet on them every game . Wouldn't that be sending a huge hint to others about how he felt about the Reds chances of winning ?? So isn't that sort of the same as betting against them ? It sure would tell me that if the Manager isn't betting on them that game , I'm going to bet against them. Just a thought.
  20. Deuces ; I was 3rd Marine 1970 - 1972 eighteen months of @#@$ in the NAM. Will that do ??
  21. Hey Packer ; see how easy it is . There's the excuse . If we can't find one , we'll make one up. I certainly didn't mean any offense to you . I'm sorry if it sounded offensive . I was Just trying to make a point . But, if I had family in Syria or any other Mid East country , I would try to get them out of there a.s.a.p. Peace
  22. You are missing the whole point . So what if other countries have weapons? Why shouldn't they be allowed to protect themselves ? Is the United States the only country allowed to completly obliterate others ? What made us right and others wrong ? I thought it was Al Queda and Bin Ladin we were after! What did Iraq do? It's been almost one year now and no WMD have been found , the C.I.A. has established NO links with Al Queda. So what was the purpose of going into Iraq , it wouldn't have been a personal thing , would it? We seem to pick and choose those we feel need punished for having weapons
  23. DD ; We used to have a saying in Vietnam, I'll share it . It don't mean nothin' You see, it got to a point that you'd see so many of your friends get completely blown away , that if you didn't shut down your emotions , you'd litterly go crazy. So every time you see or hear of a friend dying or a village getting wasted , you'd just say "I't don't mean nothin' " Sorry 'bout your dad. PEACE By the way the Aussie's were fantastic militarily , and the greatist partiers !!
  24. Hey , great news , ikebut , now we can go kill some Syrians too . Goodey, Goodey. Maybe if we're lucky we can find something in Saudia Arabia , Iran ,Jordan , Palestine , Qatar , Kuwait , or any other non-Christian country. Why are you so afraid as being seen as weak ? That sounds like some kind of school yard stuff that gets people killed.
