  1. I recently downloaded IE 9 32bit and ran PC Pitstop with no problems. I got an update for IE9 64 bit and I downloaded that because my machine is 64 bit capable. I now have IE9 64 and 32 bit versions. I ran Pc Pitstop in, IE9 64 bit to see if it affected my computer, but I was unable to download the utility. I tried rebooting and lowering my security from med high to med, but it didn't work. Is Pitstop not 64 bit capable or am I doing something wrong.
  2. I had exactly the same problem as the others. I applied the fix you gave and the program ran as before. I then ran disk cleanup and the problem came back( I had the downloaded Program files checked) .My question is why this has suddenly started. I have always had that box checked and I have never seen this problem before this past week. I will now go back in and apply the fix, but that, Downloaded Program Files, fills up fast and I really don't like having to go back in and apply this fix every time I use it. Any chance of reviewing your changes in the last week or so and try to find out what
  3. Purchased optimize and it has done nothing to improve my system operation. It did make adjustments to my internet that degraded it by about 25%. I consider my purchase of Optimize as payment for my many years of utilizing pitstop.Cannot recommend this product, based on my results.
  4. I've got almost the same system as you, and had the same problem with uncached as you. Now I'm not getting the flag either. I think KRAM has the right answer or the administrators have updated the test parameters. If you noticed when the flag first started showing up your total test score was only degraded by the 10 points for the flag. That led me to believe that nothing big was wrong.Heres my latest: http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMSAPU3
  5. These are all the stats on my harddrive. Overall rating 78 Street price when ranked Inexpensive: $90 (5/29/03) Cost per gigabyte $1.13 Tested performance Very good Windows, copy files and folders (seconds) 86 Windows, copy large file (seconds) 66 McAfee virus scan (seconds) 156 File find (seconds) 266 Documentation Fair Features Fair Rotational speed 7200 rpm Buffer size 2MB Interface ATA-6 Installation kit contents No kit Support polici
  6. I don't know the buffer size, but the drive speed is 7200 RPM. When this flag started poping up I noticed that the score stayed about the same as it was before with the exception of the 10 points for the flag. It doesn't appear to effect the Computer speed. I have checked around on non raid computers and I have never seen a score of 12 or even one over 5. Could anyone shed some light on this?
  7. I'm still getting this flag. I have checked other systems with the same approximate cpu as mine and their uncached speeds are close to mine with no red flag. Any help? http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMSEZC3
  8. I've been getting the same flag with mine for about the last week. I have checked around with other people who have the same size and speed of my harddrive.They are not getting the flag. It only cuts my score by the 10 points for the flag and the administators replied that they were working on it. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMS4PJ3
  9. I've got almost the same setup as you. As you can see I'm scoring about 60 points higher on my video. I don't know whats wrong but you can use this as a quasi benchmark. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMSN0G3
  10. Dave, I ran the feature tool you suggested and and found both the cache and acoustic were enabled. I disabled the acoustic and rebooted. I then shut down all the running programs that the OS would allow and reran the test. It didn't make much difference with my cache. I don't really know exactly what I was doing when I ran the features tool on the HD. I think it is a program for enabling and disabling features on the HD. Any other ideas? http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMSLY93
  11. Got rid of those processes's. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMSLY93
  12. I just got this computer and since Sunday I have been getting this red flag about my cache. Anyone else experiencing this? http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...R4FAW1SMXMSLY93 It is showing this red flag and the 10 point deduction, but my score is reading about the same as was before the flag. Could this be a glitch in the test? I have run this 3 or 4 times and keep getting the same results.
  13. Just got this and I can't believe it. 50% higher score then my 2Meg, 512. The video card helped alot. Any suggestions? http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?i...7WHAW1SMXMSTVL3 :
