  1. Be cautious when purchasing apparently bargain priced ddr ram. Some low priced RAM is "high-Density" which will not be recognized by most computers. Check out this : http://reviews.ebay.com/Myth-Low-Density-v...000000001236178 and always read the fine print. If the above link doesn't work for you just google "high density ram".
  2. I have used the free version of AVAST on several computers for the past couple of years. I have also recommended it to many friends. It works fine with the default settings. It has saved me from many virus attempts. AVAST requires that you reregister annualy. Not a big deal.
  3. I use the latest free version of ZA with the latest version of Avast on ax XP machine and also on a WIN_2000 machine with no problems. I've also used AVG with ZA on the same machines with no problems. I have heard of conflits but have not experienced them. However, don't have more than one Anti-Virus program installed. Occasionally one will find quarantined files in the other program and put you in a nasty loop. I find Norton Ghost to be a very useful utility for back-ups and disk images. Check local advertising and web sources for the best price. It tends to be heavily discounted.
  4. If you don't already have a recording program to do the job. I have used "Total Recorder" for tapes and LP's. It works just fine and it's only $12 US. Here's a link: http://www.highcriteria.com/
  5. You can usually put your account (Cox) on "Vacation hold" for up to six months for a very low fee. This keeps the email address active during the vacation period. You can then continue to receive your Cox email until you have time to notify everyone of your new email address with your new provider. I do this all the time with Comcast and Adelphia. They each charge $5 per month.
  6. I notice that you have 256 Meg of RAM. Win-XP is a bit resource hungry and 256 is minimum. Win-2000 pro is not quite as hungry. Then again you could add memory. It's inexpensive right now. I use both with minimal problems.
