  1. 15 strokes and it pulled up my neighbors house across the street from me.
  2. If I recall, all you have to do is change the computer name. Remove the new RAM and place the old back in then change the name of your computer and run a new test. You should now have what you're looking for.

  4. Sorry guys, I haven't checked back in a few days... BB, I don't think she has gotten spammed or her contacts but she did mention the floating cursor when she types. She said she will be typing away, then all of a sudden it will start to type in a random area which I think I can fix by setting it to hide the cursor while typing. I know that is a common problem with some lappys.
  5. Thanks Tx, that's kind of what I was thinking too but I wasn't sure. I did a search for it and appears a lot of people have had the same problem. Most of which were blamed on being hacked, and all with a Yahoo account, but I really couldn't find a definite answer.
  6. I have someone who has a Yahoo email account on her laptop and when looking at her log in history there are several log in's she does not recognize. One in Colorado, several from Texas, sometimes in Ohio and New York (She hasn't left Fl.). This is happening in both her personal and business accounts. She has changed her passwords multiple times and it continues. I'm not familiar with Yahoo email, is this something to be concerned about? Should she set up another account with a different provider?

  7. Based on what you want, you might be spending your entire budget. This is where I would start: http://www.newegg.co...ame=1920 x 1080 I have an Asus 17.3" w/2 500 Gb HDD's (G73J, a couple of years old) and love it. It's built like a tank and it's great for gaming.
  8. That's just the way my day has been going.... But here's what I've done, switched all of the ram sticks around into other slots and it took it from 2.99 usable to 1.99 usable I took them all out and tried each one, one at a time and they each booted up and each one showed the full amount usable. I put the 2 original sticks in, booted up and they showed to be operating as they should Then I added 1 stick at a time of the additional I'm putting in, booting up each time I added one, and what do you know....it now shows 100% usable.... What a pain in the Thanks for hangin with me C_B

  10. Sorry for the delay caintry, I just can't seem to get a screeny for ya. Still too new to w7.... It's showing installed memory (RAM) 6.00 GB (2.99 GB usable)
  11. My sons rig: http://pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=24995823
  12. I'm not quite ready yet caintry...I increased the amount of ram and have a new cpu cooler to put in but I have to take it all apart to install the cooler mounting bracket on the back side of the MB. I'm not sure if I'm up to doing that this weekend....I'll see how things look tomorrow...I got the Corsair H80. While I got ya, I took 2 of the ram sticks in my rig and put it in my sons rig. He had 2 x2 Gb sticks and I added 2 x 1Gb sticks. Overdrive sees all 6Gb but windows is saying there is only 2.99Gb usable. What gives with that? I'll put up a test link in a sec.
  13. Thanks caintry, I completely spaced that one....
  14. Since I put W7 on this rig I have not been able to run Overdrive except for one time. What I've done: Right click on IE icon and set to run as administrator Gone through the trouble shooting tips and made sure activex settings are correct. Deleted previous downloaded PC Pitstop utilities I still get this page......I'm not sure how I got it to run the last time Any help? PC Pitstop utility did not load NOTE: If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, or later, look at the top of this page and see if the yellow Information Bar is displaying a message about PC Pitstop. If so, click the Information Bar and select "Install ActiveX Control". We were unable to install the PC Pitstop utility. Here are the most common causes and solutions to the problem. For more information, see our troubleshooting page or ask for help on our forums (free; separate registration required). Security certificate: You may have answered NO when you were presented with the security certificate. You must accept the certificate so that PC Pitstop can diagnose problems on your PC. Internet Explorer security settings: Your IE security may be set so that you cannot accept ActiveX controls. IE's default security settings ask if you want to accept controls, rather than blocking them. To restore the defaults in Internet Explorer, follow these instructions. Web proxy issues: A web proxy or other "web accelerator" may have an old copy of our utility in its cache. If possible, disable any proxy settings in IE (Tools | Internet Options | Connections | Lan Settings) and clear your cache (Tools | Internet Options | General | Delete Files). If your ISP requires a proxy connection, try visiting in a few hours to give the proxy time to load the most recent version of the utility. Old or incomplete PC Pitstop utility: You have an earlier version of the PCPitStop utility, or one that is not installed correctly. You will need to delete the control and reinstall it. See the frequently asked questions section for instructions. Try rebooting: Sometimes, the tried and true reboot will set everything right. Reboot your PC, then browse back to the test page and try loading the utility again.

  16. TomGL2's suggestion should work for you due to what you have in your address bar is exactly what his steps will clear. My suggestion does the same but with no additional steps once it is set up. Then there is always this: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
  17. Open Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Scroll down below Security > Place a check mark on Empty Temporary Files folder when browser is closed. This will clear the address bar each time the browser is closed.
  18. IE8 works with XP, give it a try. http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=43
  19. If you go with that one you'll need an 1156 socket mb.
  20. Yep, runs like a champ. That sure was a booger and had me scratching my head. Thanks for asking Andrew!
  21. By George I think I got it. I went to C:>Documents and Settings>Administrator account>Local Settings>Temp. Then deleted all MS Word Documents that were shown. So far so good, no errors or pop ups and MS Word is much more responsive.
