  1. My wife would string me up if I tried that trick on her Bruce.............are you really that brave or have a deathwish ?
  2. I don`t know if your program allows for it, but if you can export accounts, try exporting a working account and adding it to the problematic computer ?
  3. Try setting the settings for smtp to one of these ? smtp .mail .wideopenwest.com smtp.mail.wowway.com
  4. Does your computer function as you`d expect it to ? If it does then why update drivers at all ?
  5. You are most welcome.
  6. Do you mean a DSO exploit ? http://www.derkeiler.com/Newsgroups/micros...04-08/0737.html
  7. Have a read here: http://www.iseriesnetwork.com/isnetforums/...ead.php?t=43509
  8. Yes, and if it is a performance issue you are concerned with and chkdsk finds no errors, try defragging the drive. Open a command prompt window (Click Start > Choose Run > Type 'chkdsk x:' (where x: is the drive letter of the USB / 1394 drive). If chkdsk reports any errors then read the suggestions provided.
  9. I`m glad to hear you are sorted. I recommend a weekly scan from Trend here as well as a second defence from viruses. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ It`s free.
  10. After following the instructions you did, you need to also edit the registry and then reboot immediately after doing so. 1. Click Start, and then click Run. (The Run dialog box appears.) 2. Type regedit Then click OK. (The Registry Editor opens.) 3. Navigate to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 4. In the right pane, delete the value that refers to the file that was detected as the Trojan. 5. Exit the Registry Editor. Ensure you save a backup first: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...id/19976238261
  11. This is the first "old topic" I have posted to in all of my 400 plus postings to this site and as the thread is "open" to posting, why do you have a problem with me posting to it ? If you feel a topic shouldn`t be posted to, then might I suggest you close it so that I don`t have to have a Moderator make sarcastic comments at me.......or have you got nothing better to do.
  12. You are still missed Ax. You, Volt and Bruce made me feel very welcome here.
  13. OT: Waah, when did I miss you not being Admin anymore Ax ?
  14. Surely if people are running a legitimate copy then they have nothing to fear or worry about ? I don`t think there is much wrong with a company who provides updates, from scanning and once seeing that a pc is running a illegal version of it`s software, from taking action and adding a warning every so often about it. It`s the responsible way to let people know who may not even realise that they are running illegal windows versions and a nag warning will sure get them on the phone to any unscrupilous pc builders who may have put a pirated version on a computer without the buyer knowing ?
  15. Sorry Bruce, feel free to delete this topic then.

  17. You can also get the disks you need here: http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm
  18. What connections are shown on the printer ? It sounds like you have a parallel version instead ? Do you have a digital camera to take a picture of the back of it and let us see it ?
  19. What is the make, model of your computer as usb sockets, will often be found on the back or the front of different systems ? The usb socket/s will look like this : http://www.cyberwalker.com/connectors/usb.shtml
  20. This link may help you decide. http://www.wilders.org/firewalls.htm Zone Alarm here : http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/comp...reeDownload.jsp HTH.
  21. I`m not sure I fully understood the post really, ie what it is you wish to do ? Do you have access to the bios section of your pc and isn`t there a flash upgrade available via the normal route as I have an Intel board and it`s peazy to perform a flash upgrade, but all to easy to end up with a dead mobo if it fails for any reason such as a power surge. Can you tell me exactly what it is you wish to do ?
  22. Have you installed the latest direct x from Microsoft to certify the installation ofyour drivers ? If notgo here : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.aspx Ensure, if not prompted,that you reboot after updating. Let us know howyou get on ?
  23. Memtest86 is a thorough, stand alone memory test . Run several passes to eliminate whether the memory is faulty or not. http://www.memtest86.com/memt30.zip http://www.karlsforums.com/faq/faq_memory_errors.htm Let us know how you get on ?
  24. No worries, glad the memory is okay.......now let`s test the hard drive if you like ? Prepare/format a blank formatted disk ready and download this program to your hard drive then run it to extract to the prepared floppy disk : Don`t just copy the downloadable file to the floppy disk as it needs to be run from your main computer to extract the files in the archive to the floppy to prepare it with system bootup files and the necessary program to run. http://www.ontrack.com/freesoftware/DC500.exe Power off your computer after completion then run ALL the tests that the floppy does a
