    win 7 to win xp file share issues

    Hello again. I've recently put together a new win 7 machine and I wanted to setup a little network to get some file sharing going on but I am at a loss. My knowledge of networking is way too old, like ipx/spx netbeui old.. Anyway, this is where I stand. Computer 1, win 7 home premium...

    redirected search results

    Bump, of sorts. I see you folks are pretty busy these days :) Since I didn't get any responses I dug in and found a post close to mine. I used the combofix.exe solution along with Trend Micro's house call, along with AVG finding stuff after, and Ad-aware is now working again.. I am posting...

    well crap. as soon as I felt it I knew I caught something. I was searching for metaverse worlds and clicked on a link for hipihi . the link was caught by my script blocker but being an idiot I thought all was fine and clicked okay. Zonelabs finds nothing, I can't update the files for Ad-Aware...

    OK to add key to RunServices?

    I think what willyboy is asking is how to have ZA start earlier in the startup process. I notice network connectivity before ZA launches and it seems that ZA appears to be the last thing to load. Curious if that is a hole or not. Perhaps this is a good reason to have a hardware firewall?

    end program dialog at shut down

    I'm getting a slight hang on shut down. It happens so fast I can't catch what it is. I get a program not responding message but I can't tell what program or what could be causing it. Is there a step by step shut down process I can run? Anything to point out what it is? Virus and adware scans...

    revisiting an old post... So what I have here is a HP zt1130 1.1 ghz intel celeron, 512 megs of ram, 20 gig hd, dvd drive. It has the original HP disks, XP Home. I blew out the heatsink (full of this crappy city dust), opened it up and everything looked clean enough. It was full of...

    Firefox and this web site

    more to add. it's weird. Some sections of the web site are storing my information correctly, like the main page, the main forum page, sometimes looking at threads. Some pages show the last link I clicked highlighted as usual, but some pages look like I've never been here before, just right...

    Firefox and this web site

    for some reason now I cannot cache my password with this web site. Everything I want to do requires me to re-log in. Using the current version of Firefox, XP Pro.

    hello again.

    I know this. I don't store anything in any folder that is a legitimate windows temp folder or temp folder created by any applications. What I *do* create are temp folders within my music archive where I store raw recorded vinyl albums, before any processing. That's what died. I am irritated but...
