  1. This forum seems to have two sides to it. Some things done by certain members are acceptable, but if done by others, aren't. The Pit has changed. It was never like this before. I have a whole laundry list of reasons why I don't care for this place anymore. The whole atmosphere is different now. That is why I haven't been around as much. It all changed for me the moment Ax Slinger accused me of things I never did nor said, then locked the thread. Dave was gracious enough to unlock it, so I posted a rebuttal to Ax calling him on his falsehoods. He never replied. Way to admin a forum. O well. Enough is enough. Things change and time goes on. And so do I.
  2. About 2 nights ago, I watched it but it was on Discovery

    x5dr, I agree the manufacturer's utility is not quite the same as a third party app, but as far as the actual formatting is concerned, it does exactly the same thing, writes 0s across the drive.

    The only way to guarantee that no one can recover sensitive info from a drive, is to destroy the drive A low level format will prevent the average user from being able to recover data with out using expensive software, but will still not completely wipe all traces. The Department of Defense recomends overwriting a minimum of 7 times. If there is data that you absolutely cannot let anyone have access to, just buy a new hard drive for the PC. Otherwise, a LLF should work just fine. x5dr, a low level format is just writing 0s across the drive. Technically, it's a mid level format. It is not possible for an end user to do a *true* low level format.
  6. I primarily use IE for everyday things. I've been using Mozilla Firebird more though, great browser. The others I keep around to check how web pages render in different browsers. I have multiple partitions; on one I keep all my alternate browsers, among other things.
  7. I've never had conflicts, and I have 5 browsers on this PC.
  8. You have a trojan. Update your anti virus and scan, or follow the manual removal instructions here: http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_100719.htm I see you have PCCillin, here is a link to the updated pattern that will remove this trojan: http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/pat...tern/lpt644.zip
  9. The reg key I inquired about will show whether or not it is that trojan
  10. So do I, that's what it should be
  11. Do either of you have this registry key? HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ Tcpip\Parameters "DataBasePath" = %SystemRoot%\help
  12. This sounds like it may be the new Trojan/IE exploit maybe? http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_100719.htm
  13. I got the last stick at my local Office Max today. Had to go to Best Buy to get another 256MB stick though for $25 after rebate, still a good price. The stick I bought at Best Buy is 2100/2700, it even says it right on the stick itself; on the package though, it says pc2700. Thanks for the heads up Dickster, this deal wasn't posted at any of the hot buy forums I frequent.

  15. Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into
