    http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/915...lyam_2010-02-11 Tuesday's security updates from Microsoft have crippled Windows XP PCs with the notorious Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), users have reported on the company's support forum. Complaints began early yesterday, and gained momentum throughout the day. "I updated 11 Windows XP updates today and restarted my PC like it asked me to," said a user identified as "tansenroy" who kicked off a growing support thread. "From then on, Windows cannot restart again! It is stopping at the blue screen with the following message: 'A problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.'" From another source.... If you're experiencing the above-described problems after installing Tuesday's bundle of updates, follow these steps, which a number of affected users have said seem to fix the problem: 1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console (see this link on how to use recovery console) Once you are in the Repair Screen.. 2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165$\spuninst 3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt 4. Type this command: systemroot 5. When complete, type this command: exit
  3. Thanks all for the Birthday wishes. Been real busy here, The owner of the computer store I work at is selling me the company and I am looking at finding some more wholesale contacts in between my regular grind of removing the garbage off my customers computers.
  4. I have a 600m sitting right here in my shop that I just removed the drive from to place it in an external case. The drive is a 2.5in IDE hd. Just get this 80 gig one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822148128

  7. When I get unexplained errors I get out a spare HD and do a fresh install of Windows and see if the problems continue. Kinda of extreme but sometimes can save some headaches.
  8. Superantispyware "had" issues with 64bit vista and do not know if it was worked out yet. I have not taken the time to look into it again. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware paid "protection" is not compatible but the free scanner is.
  9. I toss and ban them all the time on another forum. It is never ending.
  10. Replace the Hard Drive. It does not work that way.
  11. I make them all the time. But it is kinda hard for me to type it out and explain. Posted this a while back http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showtopic=160360 Drivers are not hard to add. We could work something out.
  12. While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher whose hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Palin and her bid. The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Palin is a 'Post Turtle.'" Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle.' "The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, and she doesn't know what to do while she's up there, and you just wonder what kind of dummy put her up there to begin with."
  13. First an Intel chip will not work on an AMD board.
