  1. Once again you guys came thru. Applied uninstall link and reinstalled Active X. Works as advertised. I still wonder if this is something I did to foul it up or was it a system glitch? If you can answer this I would be grateful.
  2. Attempted to run Pitstop in both Beta and original version with same results. Program looks normal until PC Pitstop Tests: Analyze Add/Remove Programs List - Checking Signatures. No error messages, it just hangs up. Can't think of any changes I have made that would have caused this, but I did have the same result yesterday. I thought I would wait and see if anyone else had the same problem on forums. I did see one report but they said they got an error message.
  3. did everything you suggested (twice). The page size still remains small. I do notice that a few pages fit the screen but the vast majority don"t.
  4. Close all IE windows. Open a new IE window, then press Control+N to open a second one. Copy & paste this command into the address bar of the second window java script:window.moveTo(0,0);window.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight) Press Enter. The window should fill the screen. Click the Close button while pressing Shift. Paste the command into the first window's address bar and press Enter, then click the Close button while pressing Shift. Tried this as sent. Worked up to the finish as advertised, but when I finished and then tried to open a new window it was still small. Then I tried plugging in my resolution setting for the avail width and height but that also failed. My resolution should be 1680x1050 and I don't know what to enter in the move to (0,0) box. I know I am missing something.
  5. Just replaced my 19" box screen lcd monitor with a 22" wide screen lcd monitor. when i go to explorer to open a web page it appears as a smaller box within the screen. I have tried maximizing and drawing the page out utilizing the page to fit the screen. It works for that time but when I go out and come back the page still appears small and I have to maximize it again. When I go to outlook express, my main mail program, it loads and covers the whole screen. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Also it appears all pages are not designed to display in the wide angle resolution. Is this true.
  6. Thanks for the tip on deleting the page file. It fixed the problem. What will Disk MD do for me? Is it basicly a disk deframenter that I can schedule on a regular basis? Will it discover problems on the Disk?
  7. I probably didn't explain my problem clearly in my initial problem. I too was running smoothly, so I thought until about 3 or 4 weeks ago when the test told me my disk was fragmented. I defragged with windows and when that didn't work I went to forum to see if others had the same problem. I saw where the fragmentation might be in restore and followed the directions for disabling restore , run disk cleanup and try again. No luck. I then decided to try Disk MD. I purchased it today, ran it twice and tried pitstop again. I really figured that Disk MD was made for this kind of fix. Did I waste my money or did I miss something?I have been a member a long time and a subscriber to PC World for years. The computer runs very well and all other facets are good. Can anyone help?
  8. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=C6QNSWWJKQVSFFLG I purchased Disk MD, Disabled System Restore and ran pitstop. Still shows Fragmentation. Help!!!
  9. I too have the same problem.I followed your instructions and ran the test again with restore off. The test saw that it was off and I turned restore back on and set it at 3%. I ran the test again and the test said I had it set too high and to set it to 3%. I double checked the setting and it was 3%. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=HM0PFWRWZVWSJYDW Any help for this? It appears to be a glitch in the test program.
  10. I had the same problem and if you check your specs you'll see that your video card uses 64Meg of RAM
