    Sell Xp After June 30?

    So.... Does that mean the open key I have for Professional, that I never used yet is going to be worth something. Let's start the bidding.
  2. Another thing would be to try the routers Setup Wizard again. There might be a change in how the old settings are compared to new upgrades and the old settings are not allowing you permission with the new upgrades.

    Lag From Keyboard

    I would not be the one to answer which in using different keyboards in this situation. But have you tried going into the keyboard properties and adjusting the speed and response times?
  4. That is all typical of Vista. Yes there are allot of processes running in Vista, But no harm is done to performance. And having numerous svchost,exe processes running in the background is also normal. It seems everything depends on it now. As for your Hard Drive going crazy all the time. Vista is learning how you ...... Do things, How you operate. It learns your computing habits. It might takes months before it calms down. And on top of that. Vista is always moving the programs you use more to the faster part of the platter. So if you are into gaming now, And playing different games. Vista is going to try to keep things as fast as it can. If you get tired of playing games and start making..... movies. Then it will relearn your new habits and try getting things working as fast as it can for the programs involved. On top of all that. Vista is then in turn defragging itself to keep things neat and clean. Or more to the point kinda doing mini-defrags on it's library and on the prefetch area during slow computing times. If you only do a hand full of things on your PC it will slow down in a month or two. Give it more time if you do allot of things. Or if you all of a sudden start doing new things. It will start relearning and trying to figure out what your up too. Everything you asked about is normal with Vista. If you have a fair to good amount of RAM installed. Then you have nothing to worry about. Vista is running like it was designed to run.

    Sp3 And Ie7 Question

    Once you upgrade to SP3 if you are running IE7. You will not be able to revert back to IE6. The only two ways to revert back to IE6. One is to be running IE6 when you upgrade, Or remove SP3, revert back to IE6, reinstall SP3, and then upgrade to IE7. If you have IE6 and upgrade to SP3, then upgrade to IE7. You still Have the option to down-grade back to IE6. But if you have IE7 and install SP3. It removes any option or settings to revert back to IE6.... And removing SP3 is the only cure....

    It's Power Outage Season Again!

    Lets see.. Thursday and Friday..... Big spring blizzard. Power on and off all night and day. Sometimes on/off minutes apart. And it took power out just north of me for all this week. Some still with no power. Now to plan that spring reinstall to clean everything up. How about inbetween that big storm on Thursday and the one Friday they are telling us to expect.... It never seems to fail that one will hit when I try to do a big system cleanup....
  14. Do you think there are to many toolbars??? Toolbars
  15. Hi Chris. My thoughts would be for a larger Hard Drive if your going to have it all redone. And a fresh install of XP would really clean things up for you. Taking it to a shop and having them save what you have on your old drive, such as pictures and e-mail accounts and so forth would be no problem for them. And with a larger hard drive will give you a few years to fill it up. But that is an option for you. As for the 6 or 7 Guest reading the posting. Some of those people might not even be registered to post here. They can just be others reading through to see what they can learn, or to find a topic that might help them out with a problem they have. Or just curious of the answers to questions. And some have more of a expertize in a different area. Or might feel those answering are doing fine and don't need any help. But most of the time a "Guest" is someone not logged in or more so, just visiting the forums and has yet to join.
  16. Well, I would go with what TheTerrorist_75 posted. He has sound advice for the problem at hand.
  17. As asked by TheTerrorist_75. How many partitions show up in your computer? Just your C:/ drive, or do you have more. Not counting your CD drives.
  18. Hi Chris50 Just about anything could have caused the two installs to start showing up all of a sudden. Most likely some updates from Microsoft caused changes the system brought this about. Here is how to make a copy of your Boot.ini file to post How to Save a Backup Copy of Boot.ini 1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. -or- Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK. 2. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery. 3. Under System Startup, click Edit. This opens the file in Notepad ready for editing. 4. In Notepad, click File on the Menu bar, and then click Save As. 5. Right click in an empty area of the Save As dialog box, point to New in the context menu, and then click Folder. 6. Type a name for the new folder, for example temp, and then press the ENTER key to create the folder named temp. 7. Double-click the new folder named temp, and then click the Save button to save a backup copy of the Boot.ini file. Sample Boot.ini File This is a sample of a default Boot.ini file from a Windows XP Professional computer. [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file with a previous installation of Windows 2000 on a separate partition. [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect If you can make a copy of what your Boot.ini looks like and post it here. That would help us work on this problem.

    My Pc Crash's

    I would search and update any drivers for hardware you have. Starting with your sound card drivers and moving to graphic and motherboard drivers. Vista has a habit of updating the system and system components, thus making the hardware drivers needing to be updated. Everytime I see a problem starting on my build. It's usually soon after some MS update/upgrade, and a new set of drivers for the graphics or sound takes care of it. But also make sure the motherboard drivers are up to date will also help.

    What's The Different Between....

    LOL!!!! Hit the nail on that swing...
  22. Just exactly which website are you trying to find this info on? And just which files are you trying to retrieve? Most files loaded on a site will have links somewhere to the info. New or old. If it's spiritual stuff, surly it can't be this much of a secret. If you trying to break into the Scientology`s website. Anon has been doing a good job of that allready.

    Windows 7 Performance Information

    But will the average consumer go for Windows 7s platform. Keep in mind that Win7 is going to be a fully modular OS. Even more so then Vista. Vista is just the kick-off of modular systems. Meaning you buy the basic system. Then add the upgrades you want. For Vista. If you want security, you choose the business edition. If you want the full AERO desktop and Media Center, you choose Premium. If you want the basic PC for e-mail and surfing the net. There is the Basic Edition. If you want it all there is Ultimate. And by buying a lesser version. Using the same disk you could upgrade to a better version. Windows 7 is even going to be more modular in it's prime. In the e-mails from MS I get through TechNet, Connect and MSDN. Right now some of the speculation is the big possibility of releasing to everyone the core system. And everything you will want will then be added in the form of module add-ons. If you want internet and e-mail applications. You will need to buy a module. If you want Media Center, another module to buy. How about all the fancy desktop goodies. Another module to buy. But this kind of system works. We use something like this in the gaming industry called the OASIS System. We use it to monitor the machines, do the accounting, doing the players club, support in PR, and many other aspects. You buy the core of the system, then add what you want from there. I'm sure it will most likely sell more like Vista when it is ready. But this looks is now going to be the future of Microsoft Systems. Look at all the flak Vista is getting over it's release in so many flavors. If Win7 is even more broken up into a core system with modules to add to get it the way you want. Is that going to chase off the average user. Time will tell.
