  1. I DID IT!!!!! 1,040,725 Credits as of now, 9:16 AM - PST on 1-9-2016!!!!! TL
  2. I'm 37,993 credits away from reaching my first Million Credits on [email protected]!!! (1-8-2016, 11:40 AM - PST) TL
  3. Just wanted to update, (though this is overdue), that Prometheus is NO LONGER a Pentium E-5200 system. Thanks to Guns, it is now a QX9650 Quad Core system. I did transfer the GTX-750 TI SC to it from the E-5200 MOBO. Been crunching SETI for awhile now. Unfortunately, SETI is currently out of GPU work. I have already switched Exeter, (my GTX-760 rig), to [email protected] Prometheus will follow suit tomorrow morning. Fold On everyone!!!!! TL
  4. SEE EDIT 3 In last post... Got it to work!!! Very finicky though... TL
  5. I CAN get into the BIOS... NO Safe Mode exists.... Unless I force it with msconfig.exe. TL EDIT: Two of the three Win 7 systems are HP; so, it could be that HP has had MS disable getting into Safe Mode, BUT I doubt it. The third Win 7 system is Guns' old Core 2 Extreme on Gigabyte MOBO. The two HPs are Win 7 Home Premium x64, and Prometheus, (Guns' old system), is Win 7 Pro x64. EDIT 2: Just tried rebooting Prometheus. Hit F5, and it worked. From there I hit F8 for Advanced Options, and got the Safe Mode Boot Menu. So, one system out of three works. Don't know why the HPs
  6. Nope, no luck with F5; either, system ignores it and boots to main login. There seems to be NO WAY to manually boot to Safe Mode in Win 7 x64. I assume that if there were a problem with normal boot that the system might then give the option of booting to Safe Mode; but, since all three of our Win 7 systems are fine, I have no way to confirm this. TL
  7. Will this method work in Win 7 as well??? I have found recently that Win 7, also, will NOT boot to Safe Mode using F8. TL EDIT: Just tried it in my Win 7 Pro x64 OS, and it DOES NOT work... Did some research and found that this same command works for Win 8/8.1; but, for Win 7 we all must use "msconfig.exe" in normal mode and select Safe Mode properties there, and then reboot into Safe Mode... Once in Safe Mode, and finished doing what needs to be done, you must then run "msconfig.exe" again and deselect the Safe Mode options and reboot back to normal mode. VERY disappoint
  8. UPDATE: The O&O software seems to work. I just recently completed a Cumulative Update for Win 10 which required a reboot of the laptop. Upon reboot and login, I went back into Win Update and checked settings there. The O&O restrictions were still in place. Cortana also remained disabled by O&O. I will keep monitoring dad's new laptop with Win 10 Pro and the O&O security software installed. If things change, or Win Update gets around O&O, I will let you know. TL
  9. The same NSA Anti-Privacy software in 10 is now being pushed through Win Update to Win 7, 8, and 8.1. Quote from Cosmic Ocean at [email protected], Number Crunching, Win 10 Yea or Nay Thread: "Add these two to the recently re-quoted list:: KB3075249 - adds telemetry points to consent.exe (sends your UAC decisions back to HQ) KB3080149 - UTC update for "down-level" devices (??? whatever that means. It's a 16mb update and modifies a LOT of files), but also, it says right on the MS page that it adds telemetry and tracking to help with the upgrade process. My friend that just decided to g
  10. The [email protected] WOW Contest is almost over. Then I can dedicate some GPU time to [email protected] I haven't forgotten you all, just been distracted for awhile. TL
  11. One thing to note using a DVD created with Media Creation Tool. Should the system in question be completely wiped, or if installing clean, then there will be no prior Windows Key for 10 to grab onto for "upgrading". In which case, the "clean" install will require a new purchased Key from MS to activate Win 10. This is being discussed by people in [email protected], Number Crunching, Win 10 Yea or Nay Thread. Many at SETI have already upgraded to, or installed clean, Win 10 and are using it without much issue. A couple people decided to Roll Back their install to the prior Windows Version - 7,
  12. If it turns out that your Win 7 H.P. system is in fact upgradeable to Win 10; make sure that when you install you choose "Custom" and NOT "Express". If you go "Express" it turns on ALL features; MOST of which are security hazards. Choose "Custom", and answer the questions it asks of you one at a time. MOST IF NOT ALL your answers should be "NO" to protect your privacy, stop ads, etc... I am a member of [email protected] which runs under BOINC software. The guys in Number Crunching gave me the above tips. They've been discussing Win 10 for a few months; some of them have been Testers for Win 1
  13. Thanks Guns. Yeah, boy HOWDY, do they ever!!! Can't wait to see what a week's worth of Folding will do. (The 760 in Exeter isn't really "new", though... It's solely been crunching SETI for a year. The 750 TI in Prometheus; however, is new to me, I got it used from another SETIzen.) TL
  14. Sorry, I haven't been keeping up with all the Threads, and I missed all this until now... Very sorry to hear about your ails, CB. Hope you get better soon. I have severe asthma; so, I too know what it's like to not be able to breathe. I'm on 12 meds, (NOT all for asthma, but many are), a month... (Well, actually, thanks to Medicare Part D, I get them filled on a 90 Day Supply.) Been on SSDI since 2008; back dated to 2004 which is when I originally filed. About $450 of what I get from SSDI goes to Medicare/Supplement/Part D/Dental Insurances. So, I don't have much left to have a plac
  15. Thanks, I will Fold On!!! However; I have to be careful with the electricity used... The bill is NOT mine, it is my dad's... So, no Folding tonight, nor tomorrow. I will be Suspending BOINC for next week, and will be Folding Monday through Friday; then, switch back to SETI the next week, and so on. This way I get to crunch/Fold for both projects. TL
  16. 139,000 Credits earned in three nights of Folding!!! Web Control currently shows 199,088 as of 12:45 PM - PDT, 6-20-2015. Now folding on Exeter with a GTX-760; and, on Prometheus with the used GTX-750 TI. TL
  17. Brian, We too were impressed with the way PCMatic runs and keeps the computers running. We went "Evergreen"; $150 in one shot, never need to renew, again... All five PCs running FANTASTIC, here. One XP Pro x64, three Win 7 Home Premiums, and one Win 7 Pro. All four Win 7 systems have been displaying the "Get Win 10" icons for over a week, now. I will be upgrading them; but, I'll probably wait until December when they've ironed out most of the bugginess that it's sure to have. Oh, and our previous Anti-Virus package was Kaspersky Pure 3.0... Three year license was a little more than
  18. Have TARDIS, will travel.

  19. I'm still folding the best that I can on a slow CPU. Wish I could win the lottery so that I could support my computer habit...
  20. I fold to be part of the Team, mostly. I hope that my folding actually contributes to finding a cure, (or cures), for disease. I wish I had LOTS of money to bring more computers online with powerful NVIDIA cards, (GTX-780, and 980 cards.) Right now, I have two computers; Exeter, (AMD A6 with NVIDIA GTX-760), dedicated to SETI and Einstein, and Prometheus, (Pentium E-5200 with GTX-275), dedicated to SETI and [email protected] [email protected] crunches on CPU on Prometheus while the 275 crunches SETI and Einstein. I'd like to get Exeter crunching on CPU; but, with the GPU crunching multiple WUs at a time
  21. Rob, We are paying $61/month for 45 Mb DL and 6 Mb UL with U-Verse. However; we have TV bundled in. Our total monthly bill is $148 for both TV, (U-300), and Internet. I highly recommend U-Verse. We are in Danville, CA; Texas has even higher speeds available with U-Verse. I believe Texas is just now rolling out Gigabit Internet on U-Verse; but, they've had 300 Mb DL there for a LONG time now. 75 Mb may be coming to my area, soon. TL
  22. I just got an e-Mail update from Rob in Support. He told me how to adjust the Tray Icon settings. I have successfully turned off the notification on software updates on the Win 7 systems. For my XP Pro x64 system, (Exeter), Rob wants me to wait until the next Firefox update. Once I get the C++ crash message; he wants a copy of the Log File from Exeter. It may be awhile before I get notification about another update; but, I will follow through. Thanks IntelGuy, and thanks to the Support Team. TL
