Newbie (1/14)

  1. I'm better off just sticking to Windows XP, right? Intel P4 HT 3 ghz, 800 fsb, 1 mb l2 cache 1 GB PC 3200 RAM (can max out to 2 GB) 160 GB 7200 RPM HD Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (865g chipset) ... up to 96 MB shared VRAM (no AGP expansion slot) That system is great for XP and great for my basic needs - browsing, IM, office tasks, dvd watching, internet radio, itunes stuff .... and while upgrading would be great, that video card more or less kills that idea, right? If anything I might get Vista Home Basic, but that might even be a bad idea.....
  2. Well I've been a FF user since 0.9 and Opera since it's gone free.... just wanted to fool around with IE 7, but it seems like it's got a long ways to go. I'll hold off.
  3. A) Is it stable enough to use over IE 6 right now? B ) When the final version is out, will I need to uninstall beta 3 or will it still appear as an auto update?
  4. Junk? How are those things seen as junk?
  5. Anyone here buy the new 3-disc Wizard of Oz DVD? I know it's on TV a lot, but this set is awfully tempting because of the better-than-ever print, and the never-ending list of extras... including several reproductions that perk my interest 34.98 at amazon.

  6. One program that consumes a lot of memory, hmm, like Firefox? But anyway, 256 wasn't enough, as almost anyone says 512 MB is the sweet-spot these days. Going a tad over that def won't hurt.
  7. If 640 resulted in "ew," then you must have been puking at the sight of 256. Scoring higher than most, eh? That's interesting - wonder why? I haven't done much to this, other than install Intel Application Accelerator and repair/optimize with Advanced Windows Care.
  8. After a year of procrastination - and two faulty modules from Crucial - I have finally given this laptop a much needed memory boost. Had 256 MB in here before - two 128s. Took out one of the 128s and stuck in a 512 MB Kingmax, bought at New Egg. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=UWJANWY1VYCSUCGU 256 just wasn't enough, even for the minimal things I use this for (browsing, email, IM, word processing, mp3s) .... hope 640 is enough.
  9. Call me bias, but the guy that does WinPatrol supposedly lives in Scotia NY, less than 10 miles from me. Gotta root for local guys like that.
  10. MS-AS is just too bloated. WinPatrol will monitor the same stuff, also in real-time, and it's significantly better with resources. www.winpatrol.com
  11. This is the first time I've heard of Limewire users being sued... usually its Kazaa etc WASHINGTON (AFX) - The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has filed a new series of complaints against US-based users of peer-to-peer software distributors Kazaa, Grokster and LimeWire. The move came two days after the US Supreme Court ruled networks such as Grokster may be held liable for infringement if they encourage people to make unauthorized copies of copyrighted songs, films or other content. Some 784 users were targeted in the RIAA's complaints for violation of copyright. http://www.forbes.com/work/feeds/afx/2005/...afx2117273.html
  12. Good point, mate. But I've never heard of viruses that leave RANSOM NOTES... that is absurd!
  13. WASHINGTON - Computer users already anxious about viruses and identity theft have new reason to worry: Hackers have found a way to lock up the electronic documents on your computer and then demand $200 over the Internet to get them back. Security researchers at San Diego-based Websense Inc. uncovered the unusual extortion plot when a corporate customer they would not identify fell victim to the infection, which encrypted files that included documents, photographs and spreadsheets. A ransom note left behind included an e-mail address, and the attacker using the address later demanded $200 for the digital keys to unlock the files. MORE http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7961600/
  14. http://www.my-etrust.com/microsoft/ Don't waste your time with faulty free A-V tools. Get this, and it's free for 1 year as long as you have windows.... but you have to do it before aug 31.... it's protected me much better than the free ones out there.
  15. Good for them, but MS A-S is easily the best free anti spyware app out there. Spybot is 2.
