  1. I downloaded Kodak Easyshare in order to have some online photo printing done. I then noticed that there was a heavy drain on my RAM (I run Freeram XP) so ran a Spybot check. Sixty, yes 60, BackWeb items in my registry. Needless to say, I got rid of them. No longer have to keep freeing up RAM every 2 minutes So much for Kodak's friendly image.
  2. Hi, Julie. Dad here. Looks like Nero problems run in the family See you later. dad
  3. Volt. My deepest sympathy. I am dreadfully sorry to hear of your untimely loss. God bless and comfort you and your family. d0nut
  4. Y-kawika. Just had a look at the 'Editing hosts' page. Absolutely fascinating. Thanks. d0nut
  5. Thanks for the input, John. Just wish I'd been born a genius instead of so damned good looking........er, and modest of course
  6. Problem solved! I unticked the read only boxes in the program. Works OK Thanks again, everyone d0nut
  7. Let me go over exactly what I did. Might help I opened Crossword Cracker as usual, and ZA came up and asked did I want to give permission for it to access the Net. I ticked the 'No' box, forgetting that for some of the functions the program has to be online. C.C then shut down and when I attempted to open it again, all I got was the runtime error 75. This is what I posted earlier: RUNTIME ERROR 75: "Run-time error 75: path/file access error." This error occurs when a program is installed on a network and the user does not have rights to the program directory. For the program to work properly on a network, users must be given rights by the network administrator. When I checked, my PC was set as 'network'. I reset it as 'desktop' and rebooted, but still the same problem. The answer, I think, lies somewhere in the administrator bit, but I know nothing about networking. Hope this helps, and thanks for your time, guys. d0nut
  8. Cutloop. When I right click on icon, I get this menu. Engage internet lock Stop all internet activity About Buy Restore Control Center Shutdown ZA _________________ No applications
  9. Cutloop. Have already done that. Nice ticks in all the boxes. Despair.
  10. Cutloop. When I right-click, there is no 'Applications' facility shown.
  11. Remo. I must have a different version to you. Mine is free, but has no 'Option' tab or button. I tried it with ZA uninstalled, but it still didn't work. However, the reason I blame ZA was that everything was OK until I clicked the 'No' button. After that, it didn't work. Have to leave, now. Be back in about 12 hours. Many thanks. d0nut
  12. Does this help? I copied it from a web page. RUNTIME ERROR 75: "Run-time error 75: path/file access error." This error occurs when a program is installed on a network and the user does not have rights to the program directory. For the program to work properly on a network, users must be given rights by the network administrator. When I checked, my PC was set as 'network'. I reset it as 'desktop' and rebooted, but still the same problem. d0nut
  13. Thanks to both of you. Remo. I have already done what you said, but to no avail. Can't understand it. d0nut
  14. I recently switched from Black Ice to ZA (ver. 4.5 ) and have been OK until today. I accidentally clicked 'No' for internet access on a program and now all I get when I try to open it is 'Run-time error '75' Path/file access error. I have tried everything, including reinstalling ZA, but the program (Crossword Cracker) won't work. There is nothing relevant on the ZA Instant Help forum. Anybody out there can help, please? d0nut
  15. Thanks, bear (again!) Is the splitter inserted on the output side of the modem, or do I need two modems?
  16. Is it possible to run two PCs at the same time from one cable outlet?
  17. Good luck, Volt, me old china! If you don't return from this mission, well erect a cyber memorial to you d0nut
  18. The one point about Cyber friendships that makes them different from other types of direct contact friendships is that you get to know a person from the inside out. This isn't necessarily a good thing. However, eventually, I think you can usually get some idea of a person's character from their general manner of posting. Unpleasant people pretending to be something they are not, will usually show their true nature sooner or later. I have seen it happen in my case, where I have observed something in a post that has made me change my opinion of someone completely. Could be anything, maybe inappropriate language, a snide remark, or something that shows a lack of integrity. I know, deep down, that that sort of person is not someone I would normally choose as a friend. I just phase them out at that point. As for not knowing what we look like, a visit to No Mercy's picture gallery at http://68.118.239.11/pcpitstop/page1.htm should help. By the way, we could do with a few more photos up there. (Hint to Volt ) Regards to all. d0nut
  19. As probably one of the oldest on this forum, (no, I'm not telling!) I suppose I could go anytime. Of course, if I fell seriously ill I could arrange for the gang to know. Getting hit by an express train would throw a slightly different light on things Don't forget: Death is Nature's way of telling us to slow down
  20. A voltage drop usually indicates that the component involved is drawing more current..........Ohm's Law d0nut
  21. The usual taciturn Volt I've sent my opinion off d0nut
  22. Take a look at the Pitstop Gallery hosted by No Mercy http://68.118.239.11/pcpitstop/main2.htm Hopefully, there will be more pics up eventually. d0nut
  23. Er...............how do I know if it's not working?
