  • According to the home page for Free Download Manager that application is meant for Internet Explorer. I recommend going to the Firefox extensions site and use a download manager designed for Firefox. Click here. Dexter...
  • Good article, Kwitko, thanks for sharing. My wife posts on a scrapbooking website which has a photography section, and this topic has come up before, it's often a source of confusion, people have been told they cannot take pictures in a mall, etc, …
  • I am skeptical of any software that claims to be able to do this, because it is a very tricky process. Sometimes it ends up muting the audio too much and you lose some of the music as well. Other times the vocals remain with some odd distortions. …
  • (Quote) Ah, I see. So you give a really crappy explanation of your problem, and that makes me clueless. Your writing style is like that of a junior high-schooler writing in her diary making it hard to follow, and lacking in any technical details …
  • OK, I'm a little confused. Please clarify: - how was she getting into your e-mail account? Did she actually guess your password, or find out your password somehow? - have you changed that password? If you change it, she should not be able to ge…
  • Dude, you if think it's slower now....wait till you have kids ;D Dexter...
  • Many BIOS menus have an option called Restore Power After AC Loss (or something similar.) It is usually under Power Management Options (or similar name, depending on your BIOS brand and version. In the event of a power failure, it is designed to a…
  • Best definitions of viruses, worms and trojans is here: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/security_risks/virus_worm_trojan_horse.html (Quote) Now this is where it gets tricky. Note the lasy sentence of the Trojan para. a Trojan can d…
  • Happy Birthday Lin, hope you had a good one :) Dexter...
  • Read this. Follow those instructions, post an HJT log in the SVT forum, and wait patiently for assistance. :) Dexter...
  • I just downloaded it on someone's computer the other day and had no problem. Please try again. If you still have problems, then you can download it from dozens of different places. Dexter...
  • Click the link in my signature that says Security Downloads Page. You will find Hijack This available there. Also download Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06 and Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4 Then follow the first 2 posts of this thread: http://www.sho…
  • (Quote) No. You are having a problem with either your graphics drivers, or your graphics card. The rebooting is what XP does instead of the "Blue Screen of Death." Update your drivers for your graphics card. If it continues, try a dif…
  • Assuming you are using Internet Explorer, check the following: Tools -> Intenet Options -> Advanced. Scroll down to Security. Look for Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0. Make sure both are turned on (have a check mark beside them.) If they do n…
  • Let's get some more artsy pics going here folks! This one was taken way back in Feb 05, and I just happened across it again as I was scrolling through some old pics looking for something. My wife took this, downtown Vancouver, near her former offi…

  • Can you post the report with the cookies data? I'd be interested to see it. I just cleared cookies in IE, and then duplicated your process as best I could, but I had to make the following assumptions: 1 - as you just re-installed everything, I as…
  • That's beauty work, RWB. :) Dexter...
  • No, not too much to ask. Someone was even willing to help you. You just chose to display a poor attitude in response. If someone is willing to help you despite that, and you are willing to be more sociable in return, then I will re-open the thr…
  • (Quote) Pilotwings, if you want help from people, you should consider not being snotty about it. You are likely to get more help that way. RWB asked a legitimate question: is this a paid job? It would not be the first time that someone was gett…
  • Would you throw in the bottle of frappuccino to sweeten the deal....? ;D Dexter...
  • Just click on the message and then hit the Junk button. Hotmail will remeber the addresses and or title info, and control it for you from there. Messages more than 5 days old will be automatically deleted from the Junk E-Mail folder. Review the me…
  • I like the Cruzer, it is reliable (mine bumps around in my laptop case every day) and stylish. I like the sliding plug on those new ones, looks nifty. Enjoy. Dexter...
  • Like Enverex said, they are pretty similar, with just some varying design elements. I can tell you my experience with 2 different models if it may help you. I have a Lexar Jumpdrive 512MB which is mine personally, and a SanDisk Cruzer 256 MB that …
  • Congrats DH! May you have a lifetime of happiness together! :thumbsup: Dexter....
  • Bump. You posted this in the wrong forum. I have moved it to the proper forum for you. Please let us know if you still need help with this. Dexter...
  • From that image, two of the "numbered" folders have this after the string of numbers in {curly brackets}: _is1 They may be the culprits. Try this. Run Regedit again. One at a time, right click these and select Export. Save them to .R…
  • If you are running XP, I found something that may work. Start -> Run type in regedit <enter> Navigate (click the + signs to open sub-keys) to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ Click the + sign the…
  • Ok, that looks clean. If you are running Windows 2000, you may want to try the fix in this Microsoft Knowledgebase Article: (Quote) There is a detailed fix at the link. If you are running XP, see my next post. Dexter...
  • Hmmmm, $1200 bail, with $5 donated so far..... You're screwed buddy! ;D Seriously though, good cause and goon on you for doing this. :) Dexter..
  • Click Here for instructions on how to download and properly install a program called Hijack This. Do not follow the rest of the instructions on that link, as I do not want you to post a regular HJT log. After installing HJT, I want you to do this:…
  • (Quote) It won't "hurt" your computer. It just collects some anonymous internet usage data, and reports it back to Incredimail. It is pretty tame as far as spyware goes. Your choice. :) I'll close this thread, if you have other questi…
  • Sorry for the long delay in replying, the staff have been having trouble keeping up with the demand lately. I do not see any signs of HSA in your log, but there are a couple of items you can clean up. Are you having any specific problems or just …

  • Messenger Plus is not spyware, however, if you do not pay attention to the installation, it will install spyware on your system: http://www.short-media.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19537 Like many small software programmers, the programmer of Messen…
  • (Quote) Well, as long as I gave you a chuckle, as was the intent. :) I actually keep a fluorescent light on the floor under my desk at work, because I often change out circuit boards and a/v cables when I am testing gear. We had a spare fluores…
  • (Quote) It's pretty much like plugging a cable into any other port. I prefer a nice firm grip on the cable, either right on the head of the plug, or about 1 cm (1/2 inch) back from the plug head, depending on the type of cable. I am right handed…
  • (Quote) NOTE: BEFORE YOU DO THIS, MAKE SURE THAT LIMEWIRE IS NOT RUNNING, EVEN IN THE BACKGROUND. IT JUST OCCUURED TO ME THAT LIMEWIRE COULD BE HOLDING ON TO THIS FILE, WHICH MAY BE WHY YOU CANNOT DELETE. DISABLE LIMEWIRE FIRST. Easiest thing t…
  • Try Killbox and HJT in SAFE MODE. If they fail, you may have to shell into DOS and try to delete the file from the command line, try an ATTR first to change any permissions like Read Only. Do you know how to do thoat in DOS? Dexter...
