  1. Some people like AOL.....some don't. I have removed AOL junk from computers plenty of times....as Joe says...it's like a virus, it's everywhere. True, it is everywhere but there is no need for a "uninstall code" from them....it can be manually removed without it......takes a little time but it can be done.
  2. Don't give Brandon the "big head"! Just kidding...he's a good guy! Here's another free one to try!
  3. Could also hold down the "alt" key, type "64" and release the "alt" key.............................complete list here.
  4. I remember a while back, folks were having trouble like this after removing Easy CD Creator from XP. Their fix was to delete the upper and lower filters in the registry. Don't know if this will apply to your problem or not but here is the link from Microsoft. Good luck.
  5. He's probably talking about the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. Neat little program. Check out the LINKY
  6. Microsoft has a rather lengthy fix for your first problem..........take a look here.
  7. I don't think a scanned document can be saved as a Word document unless you paste the scanned item into Word and then save it. What are you scanning.....a letter?
  8. One other thing to mention............if you are running XP, be sure to turn off system restore before you scan . It may be too late now, but if system restore is on, you will just put the viruses back on there when you reboot the computer. To turn off system restore, right click "my computer", select "properties", click the "system restore" tab and put a check in "turn off system restore". To turn it back on....remove the check from the box.
  9. Dickster, I have W2K running with a Phoenix Award bios. If your bios is the same, Look in the bios under "Advanced", "Advanced Chipset Features", and see if the "USB Controler" is "enabled". That's what mine is set to. I have no problem with USB. If yours is a different bios, look for something similar.
  10. Well, if you're not seeing a fax icon in the control panel, something must not be installed correctly. If the fax device (modem) is not present, there will be no fax icon in control panel according to MS. Linky Quoted from the above site: "You must have a fax device (such as a modem) installed for the Fax icon to appear in Control Panel."
  11. In control panel click the fax icon. You will have to add a fax printer...configure the settings. When you need to fax from the computer, open the document, select print from the file menu then select fax instead of your printer. That should do it.
  12. Y'all are crazy.....I'm goin' to bed now and it better be fixed when I get up in the morning. (4:00am) I'll be checkin' in on you.
  13. What the h... is going on in here! I see my name all over the place! Now somebody has really got some explaining to do! R A D I OOOOOOO what happened? I just asked a simple question Hummm I got my eye on all you people......can't turn my back one minute. And....and....and...I didn't break the board....wasn't my fault!
  14. Here is where it began........... http://pcpitstop.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=107217
  15. If you have a CD burner in your laptop then yes, you can burn it to a CD. Only problem there is if the laptop boots straight from the hard drive, you will have to go into the bios and set it to boot from the CD rom drive first.
  16. Hi Bruce......learn something new everyday! Now, what in the world do you use all those ports for?
  17. I may be wrong here but I think you have to disable the onboard network card in the bios first before installing a PCI network card.
  18. Dickster, since you had a crash, check in the bios and make sure nothing has changed there...(auto detect)
  19. If you will open control panel, look for the mouse icon...double click it...settings for the wheel and buttons will be in there. On the wheel tab, tick the one that says lines at a time....not screens at a time. See what happens.
  20. Could be this. In addition to dickster's recommendations, I would run a online scan from Trend Micro here. Be sure to turn off system restore before scanning. Let us know how you do.
  21. Don't know if this will help or not but may be worth a try.
  22. Did you do what Stormy suggested. Those files are in the "restore" points. Turn off system restore to get rid of them.
  23. Do a online scan here and see if it finds anything. That looks nasty to me but I can't find much on it. Maybe a Spybot scan and a Hijack This scan might shed some light on it. I read some post on another board and a suggested download of Ewido here and update it and run it may help. I'm running out of options
