    What is the purpose of this file?

    Recently viewed files as far as I know. I always delete them at close of each day as I really have no need for them and they do take up space. John

    Dachshund AntiCrash

    Can anyone tell me if this program lives up to its claims? Norton was a disaster. But this is claimed to be a lot better. Thanks John

    BIOS Printout?

    Thanks for your reply, am going to try the digital camera and take a shot of each screen. It doesn't look like there is software that will do the trick! John PS I have tried the camera and it does work but images slightly blurry as the camera has difficulty focussing on the screen. But it does...

    What is the easiest way of getting a copy of all the bios pages. I know it can be done with a parallel connected printer but mine is via usb. Is there a program that will make copies? Thanks John

    Floppy banging away!

    I thought I would let you all know that the floppy banging has now gone. I found it was caused by Zone alarm.If I disabled it no banging! I then tried an upgrade to the program and that was no better. So I uninstalled it, took a long time as there were a lot of registry entries to get rid of. I...

    Uninstall of ZoneAlarm Problem

    I use a program called "Registry Crawler" and that finds all entries in one go, makes it very easy, but you pay for it. Another good program to find all entries in one go is Karen Kenworthy's "Reg Ripper", a bit slower but really excellent. John
