  1. I want to add this here? Juliet will always be my sweetness for the Help she freely gave so many times, she is a Gem in the Pit's Crown, Mates! I hope there is more to come.
  2. Danger, Danger!! Once you get hooked into the Pit like Caintry Boy and I you can NEVER leave, Mate!
  3. As a normal Member here for many years, Mate, I can assure you that the Pit does not collect nor sell Information in anyway to my knowledge! I come here to relax, I suggest you do the same? Just so that there are no misunderstandings? I meant that you can come to the Pit and just Relax, knowing you won't get heaps of Spam, Malware, Spyware or Viruses. We all are dedicated to stamp out that Garbage, Mate, from the lowest to the Highest. All you will ever get from here is Help when you ask for it and interaction with some of the Nicest People on the Planet. Please join in and Help if you can, or just enjoy a Nice Place.
  4. I don't think I can help you out to recover them, but can say this for the Future? I am not sure of your System or what HDD Space you have? I have a 200G Western split into 5x40G Partitions. If you don't have that sort of space, I would suggest adding another HDD as a Slave to give you more room. You will be Surprised at what you will get for well under $100, then Split it into Partitions. Each one becomes a separate Drive. If I want to work on a CD/DVD, I never add onto the old one. I save it into a Folder on one of the other Drives and call it, for example, "My Program New" then add all the rest that I want to burn onto that same File. Then go into Nero and Burn it. If something goes wrong, it is still there and the Original Disk is still intact. It just increases your chances if it is critical Stuff? If it is successful, burn a second Copy, file it and then delete the File. Using rewrite on Disks is just as chancey as on Floppys, Mate, some times it works, most times chancey! If you own a Computer, get used to doing Back Ups on Critical Stuff, Mate! You can Back up so much on your HDD as long as it is seperate to your Operating System in another Partition.
  5. Try running a Test on it? Look up the Top and on the left in yellow is TechExpress Help? Click on that and follow all instructions, then after the Test Post the Results, also found under Tech Express there, back on here. Then we have an idea of your System to be able to Help you. It is safe and non intrusive.
  6. I just might have a break through. My Neighbour was here today and I showed him the Problem. Straight off he said it was Telemarketeers. I have a feeling he is right! My Phone is a silent Number and should not be available to Telemarketeers, so I never thought to look that way. This is the Log now, the 08 numbers are Telemarketeers. I think Iprimus has some work to do now to block them from this Number that we pay a Fee each Month to ensure Privacy. 7 Jan 15.22 from 464466 8 Jan 11.02 from 7774747777 8 Jan 11.02 from 777777777 8 Jan 11.02 from 777747 11 Jan 15.31 from 777777 21 Jan 16.01 from 77777 31 Jan 9.08 from 888888888 2 Feb 18.45 from 7777777 4 Feb 12.10 from 54550 4 Feb 13.22 from 0894244700 4 Feb 14.23 from 0862102300 4 Feb 14.23 from 7 5 Feb 14.24 from 0893274128 5 Feb 16.35 from 5555 6 Feb 14.53 from 77 7 Feb 10.09 from 88788778788 7 Feb 10.09 from 88 7 Feb 10.09 from 787888888887888 7 Feb 10.33 from 0893274024 7 Feb 10.33 from 97 7 Feb 10.33 from 87 7 Feb 10.39 from 78887 7 Feb 17.41 from 77777 It could be that our previous Phone Supplier has sold this number to Telemarketeers! If that is the Case they are looking at a Massive Fine.
  7. Juliet's Help is greatly appreciated by me and I know by all she has helped. This one has got up all our noses because it is really sneaky? The Pit has the Greatest Think Tank on the Planet about Computers and my Plan involves using that Think Tank to find this nice little thing before it spreads! I am a Think Tank Believer, used then right through my Business Life. Some of the Solutions have came from the lowest Employees, just because the Answer was so simple? I have had ill Health, so not able to put the Plan into operation just yet, I certainly want to Nail this! Can we all apply this to this Problem? Just throw Ideas into the Ring? If we can Nail this it will be a Great Feather in the Pit's Cap! Update? Juliet mentioned about Cell Phones with Internet access to me that at first I thought diddn't apply. My Daughter was here yesterday, with a Cell Phone, then rang me today,, I received three of the funny Calls today. When I cvhecked it out with my Daughter, she does have Internet Access. I am working on that with Juliet's Help. What a Nice Lady that goes the extra mile to Help. I commend a Lady that really Cares!
  8. Actually Juliet has worked so hard, Mate, but them Calls keep coming in. Juliet is like most of us, just wants to see it resolved. My plan will resolve it one way or the other, I think? The Original will still be there for testing, later, rather than just throw it away. As said right from the start, this is unusual, so let's work on it?
  9. In all seriousness, this is my Plan? Please Comment on it and Advise me? I have a Spare 80G HDD, what I plan is to remove the 200G complete and reformat the 80G and Install Windows XP Home on it, I have 2 OEMs, so setting them up later as Master and Slave won't be a problem. Each will have a different Number. I plan on leaving the 200G completely out of the System for a month to resolve this. Watch the incoming Calls on the Phone and report them. BTW, I will drain the CMOS to drain Upper Memory. That should leave it squeeky clean? This is right up my nose. Any other Ideas?
  10. BTW, I have never Banked over the Net, after this, I doubt if I ever will? This thing has more Heads than the Monster Hydra, the one that Hercules faced? Thank God for the Call Display! Today at 12.10 I received a call from 54550. Yet another Funny one. Then at 14.23 I received this from this Number, 0862102300, (I show this because they were up to trying a Scam on us..) I am going to report it. It was supposedly from Telstra, our Phone Supplier from nearly a year ago, informing us we had a $70.00 Credit, from the old Account, that they wanted to reinburse us with. I said, "Fine, as long as we can do it nicely, you realise that you are ringing into a Private line, any Problems I will report you!" He then went into rapid fire talk, saying it was being recorded to ensure we got our Credit. I am a little hard of Hearing, due to Industrial Problems, but am not Deaf, nor Stupid. I just said, "Slow down, Mate!" "Are you trying to sign us up to your Company with this?" "Only way to get your Credit." was his reply. I will not Post the Language, from Building Sites I used back at him. Needless to say he went away with tail between legs! Makes you Wonder? I am still working on the rest, Mate!
