    Removing Factory Installed Programs

    I would not remove languages because you do not need it, but software compiled my need it.. as for software just drag to the trash from applications.

    Hooking Mac Mini Into Surround Sound

    I understand the frustration... but remember its not that they are not allowing... you must have a HDCP approved Codex to do 5.1 (or better) and that is a licencing fee. My Dell does not do 5.1 either with out a plugin the same as the apple. it says 5.1 on everything.. but does not put it out.. I blame the MPAA and RIAA for all of the copywrite protection. but frustration noted and I believe Apple should have a help on their site that tells you how to do this.

    Hooking Mac Mini Into Surround Sound

    PCM is RAW... Also you have to set up audio on most DVD's to do 5.1 as they revert to stereo for default. also are you sending this audio to a TV then to a separate audio system.. if so under HDCP processing stereo is all you get.

    I may have good stuff.. I don't have it.. the second edition has out dated stuff, but the concepts work.. it teaches how to exploit and keep your system safe down to the software level. for example, to hack a web server it first teaches you how to write code for a web server so you can see how they parse HTML tools like nmap and http://www.openvas.org/ are very useful

    Antivirus 2009

    ok I have a neighbor who has been infected with at least antivirus 2009 The issue, Malware bytes will not install, it comes up with the choose language and a splash of the next screen before it is is killed. Jeff recommended that and I followed the site that rename malware bytes install, and runs some batch files,, but still no joy, no joy in safe mode. I have tried hijackthis.. no joy can't install even when renamed. Cdrom does not work in safe mode, when you try to explore it takes you to My documents. This is a nasty little bugger, and I am ready to just format and start over, but its not my computer and they have not backed up.. I can install http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/ but they want $30 to remove it, I have no real issue, but I do not trust programs that will cure for a cost as that is same tactic that antivirus 2009 uses. so any suggestions are heeded. Thanks

    Setting Up A Ubuntu Webserver To Test Wordpress

    there is no difference in the server version and the desktop version, except the GUI (server version has non by default). The only reason there is a Server version is because some people can not get out of their heads that they should be different. under system --> administration --> services you can set if a service starts or not at boot.. of wordpress it would be apache.. but as JCL stated.. both apache and mysql take almost no resources unless you are accessing them..

    System Guard 2009

    has anyone ran into this, and how to remove it.. I have deleted all of its files, and its registry keys that I can find.. This is a continuation of the last.. I removed the anti virus 2009 but this new one is worse..

    Antivirus 2009

    Thanks, its not up to date.. It is still service pack 2 XP and what ever other rootkit is with the trojan is really hampering effects.

    Which Laptop Cpu?

    for most uses you will not notice any difference.. the intel may have better battery life, but there are other factors that may keep the AMD at a par for battery life.. I would use the AMD if you are not gaming (your video chip has way more impact on most games anyways) and get more memory for the money
  23. I have tried this, no joy, malware bytes and hijackthis will not install.. sad... god I wish windows had a way of booting from a live cd so a app could fix it.. has anyone tested this as a cure http://www.freedrweb.com/livecd
  24. if you have another computer on that network you could http://homepage.hispeed.ch/py430/knoppix/index.html boot knoppix or any other bootable cd from grub, but you need another system with tftp
