  1. IntelGuy, I will do as you suggested and give any user who has issues with the 3D Test the link you provided. I will not bother with additional tests on this computer, this is a workhorse and sooner or later I will put it out to pasture and saddle up the new Dell setting beside it. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help Phil
  2. Thanks for that feedback, the computer was purchased in 2003 and has been tested with no issues many times. I would have to assume then that the tests have been changed, the display adapter certainly has not. I'll post that information asap and if I run the tests in the future I will bypass that particular test. I am considering now if I can continue to suggest the tests to folks at other forums? I am really interested in trying the test on my new Dell to see what happens... Appreciate the time you took. Phil Skelley

When I noticed the website changed and decided to update my directions, to do so I tought I would scan one of my computers. I run into the issues at the 3D Performance Test. MSN Explorer and Internet Explorer, with both browsers I get a message that a problem has been encountered and the browser must shut down. The file being s

  17. I You might try making sure it is running and then run MBAM again, it scans all hard drives so it should scan that one. You could also use Symantec, you should be able to choose just that drive but it would not hurt to update and scan the system. Not if you followed the instruction to delete the folders later, It is always best to use the programs uninstaller if one is available. O4 - Global Startup: GStartup.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\GMT.exe <<< this is still in the log, make sure that folder in red has been deleted. You don't, I do not open file attachments. R
