  1. Here are two programs that are small and easy to use. Myabe you will consider adding them to the list. System Specs-A Portable Freeware System Information Utility Ver. 2.65 What is System Spec? A Utility to produce a specification of your System's hardware and software. With System specs you can see, save and print a completespec of your PC. This standalone system information utility can also perform various windows functions. Additional advance info includes CPU, Drives, Applications, Display, Memory, Networking, Internet, CD/DVD Drives and more. Download on bottom left of page. Installs on your desktop. Choosing a multimedia player used to be a real no-brainer. However, during recent times the raft of new features and updates added to classic media players like Winamp, Windows Media Player, and even iTunes have left the apps increasingly bloated. Far from being the slick, well-oiled machines they once were, these programs have been stuffed with so much that they are in danger of ending up like a sluggish, overweight athlete still holding on to past glories. For those looking for a fresh alternative to these ballooning apps, The KM Player could be your ticket. The application has a small desktop footprint and its minimalist interface, somewhat akin to the original Winamp 5, means that access and playback are quick and hassle-free. Like Winamp, the interface is fully skinable, and there are some nice aesthetic touches, such as the changing of colour on the player with every new track. There are all sorts of options to help you pimp your player, such as visualizations, plug-ins and playback options, but the beauty of KM Player is that these are turned on at your request rather than being forced upon you at the outset. The application handles both audio and video, and supports a wide range of different formats, meaning that once installed, you should never need to touch another player. Video playback is particularly impressive thanks to the range of processing tools available that allow you to sharpen, change picture properties, apply filters and even make video captures from within the program.

  2. Thanks novi, This mouse only cost about $10 or $15. There was no cd with it. The web site says no driver is available. Guess it just uses a generic driver. Guess this computer doesn't like a usb drive left plugged in the computer. Thanks for the advice.
  3. Thanks jimras, I went to the bios and the only thing I saw was "Legacy USB Support" that was set to auto. Did not see anything relating to mouse. Thanks anyway.
  4. HP Pavilion XE783 WXP home SP3 FF 3.0.5 Hi Everyone. Just got back from spending Christmas with the grandchildren. They gave me a Gear Head mp2000wu wireless mouse for Christmas. This computer only has two usb ports. I use one for the printer and I have a 4-port usb hub hooked up to the other. Never had any problem using two or more ports at the same time on the hub. Last night I hooked up the wireless mouse and it worked fine. Nothing else is on the hub. I shut down normally and this morning when I booted up it went to the first screen that says: HP INVENT and would do nothing else. No beeps or anything. Removed wireless drive and rebooted and still just the same screen. Waited several minutes and shut down. Removed 4-port hub and installed old mouse with cable and rebooted. After about two minutes it started to boot and now the computer is working fine. Is there something I need to set to get the wireless mouse to not lock up the computer on boot up? Thanks.
  5. Themes: Walnut For Firefox 1.8.43 Extensions: Adblock Plus 1.0 All-in-one Gestures 0.19.1 ChromeEdit Plus 2.7.2 EbayNegs! 0.7 FEBE 6.0.3 Image Zoom 0.3.1 Nightly Tester Tools 2.0.2 Password Exporter 1.1 Print 0.3 So far the Bookmarks menu is still working right after I re-cloned the Hd.
  6. It's warns me -- and by "warns" I mean "displays an error and exits". AFAIK that's been the default behavior for years. I have at one time or other have clicked on the "X" instead of the "-" sign and then when I restart FF it says there is another FF running and to close it first. Pete_C's post explains why I have at times got that warning. Thanks Pete. However my original problem started after the computer had been off all night.
  7. I also like FF because I can customize it to my preferences which are most likely not the same as yours. I closed out a web page and then shut down the computer as I always do. Maybe it is a glitch or a bug in FF. So far everything is working fine. Thanks for the info.
  8. I don't know of anything that updated. This is the first time this has happened since I have been using FF. I'm sure someone, somewhere has had this problem and solved it. I have yet to find anything. Would like to understand the why and how of it though. Appreciate your tip and will keep it handy along with my cloned HD's. Thanks.
  9. I have fixed my problem but have not solved the "WHY" it happened or how to correct. I keep spare Cloned HD's that I clone every week or so in case I have a problem. I can not find anything to help me solve this problem even though I also posted on the MozillaZine forums and tried a search on their forums. Probably wasn't wording the search right. so I just cloned my spare Hd back to my main Hd and now the links and sub folders all open to the right side again.
  10. Windows XP Home SP3--Firefox 3.0.4 Last night when I turned off the computer everything was fine. This morning I turned on the computer and went to Firefox Bookmarks and clicked on the file for Newspapers. The folder where I have several links opened on the left side of the dropdown menu. It has always opened on the right side. I did a restore where I knew it was working and that seemed to fix the problem until I tried to open another newspaper and the folder opened on the left side again. IE favorites opens subfolders on the right side. Can anybody tell me how or what I need to reset so Firefox bookmarks subfolders opens on the right side and stays there? Thanks.
  11. Bubba Bob there was so much to digest standing on the porch in the cold that is is hard to remember everything. But depending on how and what I choose it could save me $20 or $30 dollars a month. Like I said in my edit above will have to wait and see the package.
  12. Thanks for replying Bubba Bob. Yes, it is their new fiber optic network. They will be signing up customers the 22nd of Dec. It sounds good with the phone, cable and internet from one source and the rebates for signing up. Will have to check the "Welcome Package" out when it arrives in the next few days. :) Forgot to say they will be sending me a modem to hookup and check their internet speed against comcast at the same time. Also the modem is mine free of charge as they will not be renting any equipment once it is in the house. Lot to check out.
  13. I just had a visit from a representative of AT&T informing me about their new Internet and TV service is starting in my city the end of this Dec. They said their service is faster and cheaper than Comcast. Also I could pick and pay for only the TV channels that I wanted. I am interested in saving any money that I can as I am on a fixed income, if I can maintain my current level of service. Do any of you have any information about AT&T's new cable service? Thanks.
  14. Priceless .. Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement and when his Plane arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home. As he prepared to get into the limo,he stopped and spoke to the driver. "You know" he said,"I am 87 years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?" The driver said,"No problem. Have at it." Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off down the highway. A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap. The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone. The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo and he got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure of writing the driver a ticket. The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to see who was driving. He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor. He told the supervisor ..., "I know we are supposed to enforce the law....,But I also know that important people are given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person." The supervisor asked, "Is it the governor?" The young trooper said, "No, he's more important than that." The supervisor said, "Oh, so it's the president." The young trooper said, "No, he's even more important than that." The supervisor finally asked, "Well then, who is it?" The young trooper said, "I think it's Jesus, because he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!" Smile - God loves you! I ask the Lord to bless you, as I pray for you today; to guide you and protect you, as you go along your way God's love is always with you, God's promises are true. And when you give God all your cares, you know God will see you through!
