    ZoneAlarm problems/questions

    Thanks for the link hewee - that helps alot. I also think I'll change from ZoneAlarmPro (had a free trial for that) to the regular ZoneAlarm, which seems less complicated but just as good.

    ZoneAlarm problems/questions

    Just installed the ZoneAlarmPro firewall and it seems to be working too well - when it's turned on I can't access the internet , and then when I turn off the access part I can't send e-mails. I try to follow the settings tutorials but I'm a little confused between the trusted sites, network...

    Internet Explorer/Roadrunner connection problem

    Still can't connect to Roadrunner. Everything pings fine (4 packets sent, 4 received). Have reinstalled Internet Explorer 6, used the winsock fix-it tool, deleted SP2 (as the problems seemed to start after this was installed), run ADaware and SpyBot. Even just installed FireFox as another...

    The Sims/sound problem

    Tidus - I'm still a little reluctant to download some new codecs as it seems I should be able to fix it with some other setting (but maybe not!). As for the memory, the PC is a Pentium 4 and the new memory I put in was PC2700 DDR as recommended for my PC by Crucial.com. I haven't tried too...

    The Sims/sound problem

    Tidus - I added 512 MB to the 128MB that came with the PC - that should be enough to handle the audio isn't it? And before I download those codecs - what exactly are they and what do I do with them?! Thanks.

    The Sims/sound problem

    Thought most of my gaming problems were solved after upgrading the RAM and graphics card on my Dell Dimension 2400 with Windows XP. Just installed a Tornado GeForceFX5600 graphics card and have 637MB or so RAM, but when The Sims (Deluxe) starts playing, the game crashes to the Desktop. Have...

    Help setting up wireless RoadRunner

    Okay - first set of problems/stupid questions: I've got the wireless PCI adapter installed using the disc that came with it - took only a few minutes, now I have no idea what to do next. I then put the CD that came with the router into the PC and it told me to hook the router up...

    Help setting up wireless RoadRunner

    Thanks for the reply Stump - I went ahead and picked up a Linksys wireless-G 802.11g router today (WRT54G) and a Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter, so we'll see how it goes. And just to clarify, I won't be working wth AOL - I plan on getting rid of that as soon as the RoadRunner is up and working.

    Trying to do some research before going out to get a wireless router and ethernet cards, etc. so I can set up wireless Roadrunner. I really need simple specifics on everything, as I'm getting very confused after reading so many posts on this and other boards! Here's what I have -...

    Windows 98SE problem after re-install

    Thanks - I'll go ahead and do that, and I'll keep an eye out for the full 98SE disc just to keep around - it sure would have come in handy when I was trying to re-install all this.

    Windows 98SE problem after re-install

    Thanks to help from the forum I got Windows 98SE re-installed on an old Gateway PC. Briefly, I had to re-install Windows 95, then Windows 98 over it, then upgrades to 98SE (mainly because I didn't have the full Win98 disc at the time to start with). Now it starts up fine, but after...

    Windows 95/98SE re-install problems

    I did come across some mention of Himem.exe somewhere - how do I check to see if I have it or where do I get it from if I need it?! Thanks.

    Thanks again for all the suggestions - I'm going to give them all a try and see what happens. ohheck - I think you're right about the FAT32 file system - when I checked my partition wth the fdisk options it does show that I set it up with the Fat32 system, and from reading these threads I...
