  8. Hi ,, Thanks once again for all the tips/advice, i run Sygate firewall on an old 350mhz pc and fine it works fine for me so i installed on this pc as well. No problems with Avast Antivirus Download on here, updates went smooth to boot. I found my resourses are up about 10% after boot from when i had nortons installed , Actually the reason i reformatted in the first place i was having difficulty opening web pages ,they'd wouldn't fully load , i use ie6 with updates , after format i find i'm still having a bit of a problem doing the same thing , i'll wait till i go online on one of my other pc's

  13. simonc ,, Don't know if you've tried the regedit.exe change yet, i run 98se as well so thought i'd follow dough's tip from coyote.com , went into regedit and followed the instructions given. I right clicked ,chose String Value , and the little box popped up showing nu 1 , i'm just not sure how/where i type AlwaysUnloadDll ,or do i have to open a second box, Also from the coyote.com web site it mentions to make sure too add capatils as shown. I've just done a fresh install of 98se so i don't want to make a mistake,never touched the registery before so i want to get it right the first time,, Ro
  14. I was reading somewhere a few months ago a similar discussion on the pros an cons of shutting down or leave running,, if i remember they said new pc's were built to withstand about 40 0r 50k shutdowns . For me i usually go online once a day but shut down completly and then off at the wall, if storms are about i then unplug from the wall both pc an modem ,, ross.. :beer:
