  1. I've been using it for several weeks now. No problems. Except with PCpitstop forum, the ad at the top of the page is never in the center of the box. Half of the ad is covering up the user options links..
  2. Thanks for the help guys. I've read about AVG too. Don't know why I picked Avast, other than several here on the pit also use it and seem happy with it. I heard some on the pit complain about AVG's constant nag about updates.
  3. I now have CA Etrust anti-virus, but the subscription is going to expire soon. And instead of spending $$ to renew I have decided to switch to Avast free. I have read good things about it here on the pit forum. But I wanted to know if there are any settings I should use or not use?
  4. Mine seems to be working fine. I Like it a lot. Uninstall it and use something else if you don't like it.
  5. If the prints come out with lines that could mean a print head misalignment.. Did you run the alignment test when setting up the printer? Do the lines still appear if you print a picture on plain paper?
  6. It should be reconized as a 200gb drive if you are using Windows XP with service pack 2. What OS are you using? Are you setting this drive up as a second drive for storage? OR as the main drive with a fresh install of the OS?
  7. I think I would look on Newegg instead of ebay. All of their systems come with the OS. Also you will have Neweggs return policy in case of problems. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16883102681 Heres one with a quick look on Newegg..Windows XP media edition included..
  8. No opinion about hard drive fans? Are the case fans the only ones needed?
  9. Have you ever run this computer thu the PCpitstot test? If you can run a test and post results you might get more detailed help. What brand of hard drive is it? Most hard drive mfg. have diagnostic software that can test the hard drive.
  10. My computer has only one case fan and the fan in the power supply. But lately since the weather has cooled I have shut off the house AC. Now I noticed the temps of compo nets have gone up a few degrees. I don't know if I should install a case fan in the front of the case to suck in fresh air. I was also thinking of using these: http://cgi.ebay.com/Supper-quiet-New-HDD-F...1QQcmdZViewItem Has anyone used this kind of fan before? Are they noisy??
  11. 128mb memory + spy ware = Low performance.. Memory upgrade will help tremendously. But also get rid of the spy ware programs too. Fix the problems that are yellow flags in the PC Pitstop test..And things should improve!!
  12. Don't mess around in the registry unless you know what you are doing. Even then back it up before you go in there...
  13. If everything else is running fine you could remove all your system restore points. The system restore points use up a lot of disc space, unless you already have it set low or off.
  14. I thought of another way. If both drives are IDE type you should be able to install the old drive into the new machine. You will have to set the jumpers on the old ME drive to slave and install on the same cable in the new system. I guess if the new computer has the new drive's jumpers set on cable select you could also set the jumpers on the old drive in the cable select position. But this all depends on if you think you can do this yourself. If you use the ethernet line like richard_etchell suggested you will still have to go inside the old system to install the ethernet card.. The good thing about installing the old drive in the new system is that will cost nothing. I like FREE
  15. Does it have USB port? Do you have any external USB drives? Like a flash drive or external hard drive. This one will hold 4GB of stuff. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820233027 And this one holds 40GB and is cheaper.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16822154624
