  1. I think you're correct there. I had that problem with Acronis True Image 9. Thank you all for the advice. I think I'll just leave well enough alone.
  2. I just bought a new laptop computer & have a couple of questions about my HD. I've never owned a computer with a recovery partition before. First off, here is what I have. Gateway P-6860FX Laptop running Vista Home Premium Local Drive Volumes c: (NTFS on drive 0) 304.24 GB 228.44 GB free d: (NTFS on drive 0) 15.83 GB 8.56 GB free Now, for the questions. I used MaxBlast 5 (Essentually the same thing as Acronis True Image 10) to do a complete backup of my C: Drive onto an external HD before I uploaded any software. So, the backup is straight from the factory. Can I just go ahead & delete that D: Drive now or does it contain my operating system that the computer uses, on it? If that isn't possible. I have the ability, in Vista, to shrink that D: drive but when I do that I wind up with 8GB's of unallocated drive space. How do I allocate that to the C: drive? Something like Partition Magic? Something free if at all possible.
  3. I use Winamp, & yes, it is hard to tell the difference between that and any other player. I just downloaded this music enhancer the other day. You can get a plug-in for Winamp, WMP, Musicmatch, & others. It seems to work pretty well. There's a free version & a Pay version. I just got the free one because....well I'm cheap. It's worth checking out. DFX 7
  4. Is it just me or does anybody else think it's rather ironic that her post came up twice?
  5. If your just getting a 1:1 transfer, I'd say something is amiss. It should be a lot faster than that.
  6. Macromedia Flash Player 8.0 will not function if the Adblock extension is installed and OBJ-TABS is enabled. Workaround: Disable OBJ-TABS until an updated version of Adblock is released. Tools>AdBlock>Preferences>Options Make sure OBJ-TABS is unchecked. By the way that thing is a little freaky!!!

    Yep, if you were to number them 1 to 7, this is how it goes. Click on 5,3,2,4,6,7,5,3,1,2,4,6,5,3,4
  8. I like to check out a lot of help forums. Just to learn from other peoples mistakes & this is by far the best site that I've been to. So welcome & enjoy
  9. It's been a long dry spell!! Set me up a couple of Miller High Lifes, The champagne of beers ya know.
  10. Hey, Thanks everyone for the info. It's greatly appreciated!!
  11. A friend of mine has a Dell computer. It only came with 256 MB of Ram. So I DL'd Everest Home Edition to get her specs. Motherboard CPU Type Intel Celeron D 320, 2400 MHz (18 x 133) Motherboard Name Dell Dimension 3000 Motherboard Chipset Intel Morgan Hill i865GV System Memory 253 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM) BIOS Type Phoenix (11/08/04) Communication Port Communications Port (COM1) Communication Port ECP Printer Port (LPT1) This is the pertinent part of the specs. So when I'm looking for more RAM do I just look for PC3200 DDR SDRAM & that will aotomatically be compatible? Other than opening her computer up, where can I find out if I can just add another stick of RAM or if I have to replace the one or two that are there. Sorry, I didn't even think about looking inside her computer before I left her house. Or do all computers come with 4 slots? If she has 2 sticks of 128MB, do I have to get 2 more sticks of 128 or can I just get 1 stick of 256MB? I'm trying to obtain 512MB by the way. Any help to get me started would be greatly appreciated.
  12. My first thought was, with the electronic door. What happens if the electricity goes out. You'd be stuck in there with no video, no music, & most importantly, no ventilation!! But, otherwise it would be pretty cool.

    Could somebody check this for me. I removed the infamous Vundu trojan using the Symantec cleaner. Then I ran spybot S&D, came up clean. Then I ran A-Squared which found 6 things that I deleted a couple of which were trojans(apparently). Now I just need to see if there is any thing in this log file I should be concerned about.

  14. I actually have no need for this program myself. I have a friend who doesn't know much about computers that could really use something like this. So I thought I would check it out for her. Oh, by the way, I don't a heck of a lot about computers either!! I downloaded from the link you gave. Everything seemed nice until I clicked on the "Start" button. The second I hit that button my cursor dissappeared. I am using Stardock's Cursor XP. Does anybody know where the connection to these 2 programs might be? The only way for me to get my cursor back was to boot into safe mode & uninstall "File Sharing Sentinal". Do you think it would of done this if I wasn't using Cursor XP? It really sounds like a good program, I just wish I could trust it. P.S. While I was in safe mode I ran Spybot S&D. I found this. Smitfraud-C. It was in my temp. files. Never seen it before & Spybot usaully comes up clean.
