  1. Nahhh not offended at all. If we can't poke fun around here..there's no sense in being here. Bruce to be honest..most of the phones I've owned have been good ones except for the one I had before this iPhone. It was an HTC HD2. The wife and I both had this phone and both had numerous problems. Her's was replaced 3 times and mine twice. The problems never went away...so I was glad to get this iPhone. Oh...and Bruce..well he's the resident pokester! :clap:

  2. I just had the same problem on one of my 3 external LaCie hard drives. Nothing I did could recover the files....if I was able to run anything on the drive. The drive started doing that on a hard power shutdown..(power went off in the whole building for a few minutes) Upon restarting my computer...that one drive was slow to respond...almost like a hung browser page. The drive was then listed as "raw" format. Nothing I tried worked to recover the files. I even used a Ubuntu Live CD. Windows continued wanting to format the drive for me....so I said ok...let's format it.....NOT..Windows would not format the drive....it would act like it was formatting but it would end in a error...to "try again" or "the disk is inaccessable". That drive is now sitting on a shelf...not used. I know my post don't help your problem but I feel your pain! Sorry.

  3. I downloaded a free red cursor set for my XP laptop. I'm sure they are available for WIndows 7 too....just be careful you don't get any "added" spyware with it...read the installation screens closely to see what is checked to be installed.

  4. You can shut it down through task manager then uninstall it. Control-Alt-Delete key to bring up task manager. Look for Itibiti.exe running under the processes tab. Highlight it and click the end task button. That should shut it down. Then you can uninstall it. You can also do a System Restore to the computer back to a time before you messed it up. You will only loose any "custom" system settings that you made after the restore point. Personal files won't be lost.

  5. This may be a long shot but look in "services" and see if the "Remote Procedure Call" (RPC), "Remote Procedure Call" (RPC) Locator, and "Server" services are running. If not, right click the service and start it or restart them then reboot the computer.
  6. For starters, check to see that the "use proxy server" is not checked. Some viruses and malware like to change this setting. To do that right click your Internet explorer icon, select properties. Click the connections tab on the next window that opens. At the bottom, click the LAN settings button. Make sure there is a checkmark in "Automatically detect settings and no check mark under the Proxy server. If you have to change one, exit out and click apply-ok. Next click on the start button and select run and type in the box "CMD" without the quotes and click ok. In the black box at the blinking curser type "ipconfig /release" without the quotes and hit enter. Then type in "ipconfig /renew" without the quotes and hit enter. Both these commands have a space between config and the / . After doing this check your internet. Hopefully that is all you need to do.

  7. Wow...I had trouble getting in this morning. I entered my user name and password..then clicked on "user to user"...but it never did load. After a minute and 10 seconds I closed my browser and cleared cookies. I tried again and still took about 30 seconds to open the user to user section. Somethings still not right.

  8. In device manager, scroll down to "Universal Serial Bus Controlers" and expand. Right click "USB Root Hub", select properties. You will have a "General" tab, "Power" tab, "Driver" tab, "Details" tab, and finally a "Power Management" tab. Click the power management tab and uncheck the box that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". I am looking at the XP screen on my second computer as I type this. Yours should be the same. :) There should be similar properties for that PCMCIA card somewhere to make the changes.

  9. In device manager, right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Properties." Click the "Power Management" tab and then un-check the check box labeled as "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." Maybe that will fix the problem. ;)
