Can one slow usb 3.0 port be river related?

Q: Can one slow usb 3.0 port be river related?

I have four usb 3.0 ports, one of them has max speed of 35-41 MB/s, tested with two different usb 3.0 drives.
Could a driver error cause just one port to be slow?

Core i5 3337U 1.8
Chipset Intel HM77 Express

Preferred Solution: Can one slow usb 3.0 port be river related?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Can one slow usb 3.0 port be river related?

Hi there
some of the passport / other self powered UBB3 drives aren't particularly fast - although faster than the usb2 disks. There is still an issue with Native usb 3 drivers for windows 8 -- maybe latest version of 8.1 might have fixed these.

Note also a lot of mobos that don't have native USB3 ports won't give you very fast usb3 speed with a pci extension card - bus speed isn't fast enough for true usb3 speed.

New laptops fitted with usb3 ports should provide full usb3 speed provided your device can handle it.

Note it's possible that your "Slow" usb 3 port is not a "powered one". Otherwise sounds like a defect - all 4 should have the same characteristics unless the manual says the spec is different.

I purchased the student offer version of Windows 7 yesterday top up grade from XP, as for ?30 I thought I couldn't go wrong.

So there I was this morning thinking I could set a side a few hours to get it all up and running but 11 hours later i still dont even have all of the first .box file downloaded!

I live off campus (in the UK), but still have a cable broadband connection and can usually expect file download speeds of 300-800kb/s as reported by the windows download window.

Now I know that there is probably high demand on Digital River's servers at the moment, but still... My download has only managed 40-50kb/s on average with a couple of short peaks to 70-90kb/s.

At this rate it'll be tomorrow evening before I get to a point where I can install.

Anyone else having this problem, or ideas of how to speed things up? I ask as i can't find anywhere else which mentions this problem, only people talking about creating .iso files as if their download flew by and now they're installing.

I'm trying to setup a multifunctional laser unit via parallel port on a PC running XP Pro and is unsuccessful in getting it to print.

I have put the LPT ports into SPP and ECP modes with no luck. (have not tried EPP although I should as its bi-directional) I have also tried different parallel cable, different versions of drivers, tried printing from DOS using "dir > lpt1" and still no luck. The LCD on the unit says "waiting" then goes back to "ready" with no output.

I have connected the unit to my laptop running XP Pro. The LPT is set to ECP. I can print from windows with several versions of the drivers as well as from DOS without problems.

I also have a HP A3 Bubblejet that has a monitoring toolbox. This unit is connected via USB but also has Parallel support. I have removed this printer and toolbox software believing this toolbox was locking down the LPT port and still no luck with printing to the laser unit. I have connected the HP Bubblejet via parallel (with no toolbox software loaded) and also got no print.

Lastly, if i remove the LPT1 port in Device Manager and rescan for hardware, the PC detects the LPT port and the attached device.It installs the driver for the attached device and indicates all is installed and ready to use. but printing fails.

Thus I believe there is something going on with the PC not the printer units. However, I am still unsure if it's software or hardware related.

Any help would be much appre... Read more

Hi, as the title states I cant play online games. Such games include Dawn of War: Dark Crusade and Age of Empires: The Conquerors, I also cant play LAN. Its odd because 2 weeks ago I was playing AoE lans with my friend and now they dont work. Same goes for DoW, last year I had no problem playing but now I do... When it tells me I cant connect in DoW it says something along the lines of this; "Unable to connect to host, please check your firewall/port/router blah blah" etc. I read in the AoE forums and people had similar problems playing online, and they said to port forward. So I got PFConfig and my port/router yoke wasnt listed, and I cant update the list so I really cant do anything. Who can help me, please?

We have a large monitor (Dell 3007wfpt) connected to a Dell Precision M4800 laptop. The large monitor only works with DVI-Dual Link so we have a Display Port to DVI-D adapter (Accell UltraAV DP to DVI-D). The user of this machine was working in Outlook on this external monitor right after a fresh boot and noticed the mouse cursor was moving very slowly. Eventually the external monitor froze completely and the laptop monitor showed a BSOD whilethe external monitor showed the same frozen static windows/outlook image. I checked the crash files and noticed two dumps (although he only noticed one crash). Both dump files seem to point to a USB device. This Accell adapter uses displayport and usb (for power). Could someone check and confirm if this is the case through the dump files?

The only other USB devices is a Logitech wireless receiver and a USB hub/card reader that is built onto the Dell monitor. This usb hub on the monitor does not have anything plugged into it.

Thoughts? Could it be the monitor usb hub/card reader? Or the displayport adapter? If it's the adapter, then would an external powered usb hub be a fix for that? Thanks!

A:BSOD usb related, monitor hub or display port adapter?

Hi Rogue75.

First of all, Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs. Otherwise, stop 9x9F cannot be successfully prevented.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus and the touchpad "Apoint".
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Next come to the BSOD. Do you use the webcam?
(c:\program files (x86)\dell webcam\dell webcam central\webcamdell2.exe)

Better you disable the webcam in device manager. See how it goes. Observe if there is any more BSOD after freeing up the startup items and disabling the webcam.

But, the webcam might be necessary for you. Search for any possible updates in Support | Dell US for your Dell Precision M4800. If any update to the webcam is there, apply it.

Report us for any further BSOD.

Hi there sorry the notifications about this post have been buried by the mailbox and I forgot to respond. 
To answer your last question. What I meant by sometimes was that, sometimes Windows loads normally without BSOD. Anyway this issues seems to have disappeared now. Laptop runs a little bit faster but not much. Website are still loading very slow (even the major ones so it's not a problem with UE on their end, and loads much faster on my desktop). Explorer folders sometimes don't load icons and menus, preview of media takes ages sometimes causing crashes of the application, applications like skype, xlite and office are very slow and are getting stock/becoming unresponsive.
Thank you for your help.

A:Slow browsing and very slow explorer and disk read write related processes cont.

Quick update of things I've noticed. 
1. When searching for things on Google after typing the query and pressing enter/clicking search the page is stuck I can see it's loading at the top (Tab spinning circle) and the search page results are blank white, buttons are responsive etc but tit doesn't bring up any results. Then if I press search (enter or click the search button it displays the search results.
2. Sometimes there is a huge delay in typing. You can type a full sentence and it will display the letters/words slowly on the screen (letter by letter steady pace first and sometimes at a fast/semi fast burst of typing) but not at full speed. 
3. Sometimes when I open spreadsheets or other documents in office it says that someone is currently editing the file but this is a standalone laptop that is not part of an intranet and there is no one else who is viewing these files apart from me.

Hey, basically computer's been a bit slow and tried clearing some stuff and done other things, but still no luck, to make things worse internet's been a lot slow and when using either firefox and internet explorer. For example when going on youtube some videos would freeze in the middle and i would have to reload the page, and sometimes takes ages to load a page.

Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here.

I know a lot of people post about slow shutdown, I've searched for it, but nothing quite matches the symptoms I have.

I select start->shutdown, and it starts to kill apps and services, but then it gets stuck at some point. I can continue to choose start->shutdown but it does not push things along. At this point, I can't run task manager because of a dll not running error, I believe it is already dead. Same with some things like desktop properties, running explorer, etc., the dlls required to run these have already shut down.

I thought maybe it was network related but if I disable network connections it does not alleviate the problem.

Once it finally closes out the desktop and taskbar, the window hangs on things like "playing shutdown sound" but I have that turned off. It hangs and goes slowly on other shutdown related messages, eventually I have to just hold down the power button and kill the laptop.

However, if I shutdown the computer right after it boots up, the problem does not exist. So I feel it has to be app-related, but it seems to get hung up before, during, and way after the apps have been killed.

I tried checking the system event log and I can see some errors in there during the shutdown time period, but none of the information is specific enough to point to a particular app.

I know this isn't enough information to pinpoint it, but any advice? Thanks!

A:XP slow shutdown - maybe not app related?

Go to Start\Run and type in msconfig. Change msconfig to not use Start up programs. See if that makes a difference. That should help verify if it is a application causing the problem.

I beleive a faulty device driver can cause the shutdown problem also. Check Device Manager for any problems.

Good Luck

Hi, I could really use somebody's help!! I hope I am posting in the right place - I tried looking around in here, but my pages keep freezing up, so I will be lucky if I can even get this post in! Anyway, my PC was just fine and has been for a long time. Several days ago, my brower started hanging up .. so much so it was worse than dial up. At first, I thought I just needed to clear everything out and restart .. but no luck, the slowness was here to stay. I uninstalled Explorer and reinstalled it. I did all kinds of virus scans, defrags, analyzers .. nothing is helping. A friend told me to try something called MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware .. the problem with that is it won't run all the way through .. it keeps getting stuck half way through, and won't finish. I am at the end of my rope, I can't stand this .. I can't get my work done!! Any help would be most appreciated!! Thanks.

Okay, i accidentally pulled the usb cord out of the computer while it was connected to my Iriver. The computer then proceeded to pop up with a message saying "Files may be lost" i looked on my Iriver iHP-120 and there it said 0 files, 0 folders, and 0 memory. I tried to hook it up to another computer and it would not register as an external harddrive and has yet to. I spent a fair chunk of money on this and i would hate for it to be broken after only 8 months of use. Please help, Firmware 1.3, Windows XP Professional.

Hi all,

My computer has been acting crazily for the past three days. All my internet-related processes are extremely slow:

-Pidgin (AIM messenger program) freezes every minute or so, but remains working after 30 seconds being frozen.
-Mozilla Firefox shuts down after I attempt to click anything on my home page (Yahoo) or type anything into the web browser.
-Internet Explorer just freezes and barely works.
-Opera freezes immediately after opening it.

My computer is just awfully slow in general. Startup time is horrendous, and it takes about 15 minutes for my computer to boot up. I have used "Disk Cleanup", "Disk Defragmenter", Spyware Doctor, Spyware S&D, and BitDefender.

I have also recently had the Win7 Security virus, but I have removed that fully and it has not been on my computer. However, it is only after I removed the virus that my computer has begun to act slow.

Hi guys,

Im running windows xp on my Dell inspiron 1525. A few days ago I had a lot of problems with a software (iTunes) and add/remove program wouldn't let me uninstall it, so following an advice I downloaded a software called revo uninstall and used that to uninstall iTunes, then reinstalled it manually. While that problem was solved, around the same time my comp started moving extremely slow. I'm only using half the memory I have and according to my performance on task manager I'm using less than half of my RAM. I'm using malawarebytes and avg anti virus and both show no threats..
But it's so slow it's almost impossible to use it. Even just a virus scan that took an hour or less before, can take 14 hours now!!

I did uninstall revo uninstaller since but still the same..

I wonder if it's possible I accidentally deleted files or something along the way that could cause this.
I don't want to have to format my computer or reinstall windows xp (as I have no idea how to do it and no clue where the install cd is).

:( help please.

Hi, just to outline my problem more, my computer slows down for increments of 30 seconds or more, before returning to normal. At first I thought this was a gaming related issue, as I first encountered it playing a game, where my fps would drop dramatically and become unplayable. In fact, I just had "lag" for lack of a better term, just occur typing this post. I've spent several weeks checking possible fixes, and I can say it doesn't have anything to do with either my OS, Windows 7, or hardware, driver or heating issues. Thanks in advance for the help!

P.S. I was unable to run rootrepeal, because I run a 64-bit OS, so I'm not including a log of it. I can also supply a MBAM log if needed, but it wasn't able to find anything.

I don't even know what the conditions are, but after using windows for awhile (about 0.5 ~2 hours), everything window-related things becomes slow to... everything, like:

1.When I click on a menu of charm bar, it just freezes and doesn't show the submenu.
2.When I right-click on task bar or background, it doesn't show the pop-up menu rightaway, but it's delayed to show it for about 5+ seconds(it becomes more severe as time goes on).
3.The delay even applies to "Shut Down Windows" window. Clicking on drop-down menu becomes also impaired.

And I found those:
1.Other not-windows applications(chrome, photoshop etc.) are not affected.
2.I ran RAM diagnostic tool and it showed no error.
3.Anti-virus and anti-malware programs also found no problems.
4.A temporary fix to this is rebooting pc or restarting explorer.exe. After restarting explorer.exe, the problems are gone.

I'd just love to reinstall Windows if I could, but I have no time for installing all the apps, and the repair install doesn't somehow work for me (it only shows "keep personal files" option). Can anyone help me with this?

Can anyone help me with my laptop problem? I've had a Toshiba laptop for about 2 years. Lately (past 3-4 months) it has been really slow! It seem to have started around the same time I purchased and installed software for my HP Officejet 7300 all-in-one printer. The processing speed seems to fluctuate (sometimes its really slow sometimes its fast). I've tried adware, registry cleaner, defrag, disk cleanup and virus check, and add/remove programs.

There is no trial version of Win7, only a 30 day grace period before you must activate so you can decide if this is an install you want to keep. You should already own a license. If so then read carefully over the steps to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7. It discusses in Step 1 how to find replacement media.

In our household we have two students, and so ordered a copy of Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Home Premium in both x64 and x86 versions - a total of 4 products from Digital River.

Having used their download manager to download these files, I now have 6 files: 4 .exe files (as expected) plus 2 files named setup1.box and setup2.box.

The .exe files are, however, only just over 70KB each, setup1.box is almost 3GB and setup2.box is 163KB.

Running the Home PRemium versions fails immeditaely, saying it can't find the required files. Running the Pro x64 .exe file starts to build a .iso file ("Unloading the box"), but then fails with an unspecified error.

Any ideas?

Hi all,

What a nightmare!!!

I have just had an email from Digital River, that I will be getting a full refund for the Windows 7 upgrade within the next 30 days, for the problems caused. I haven't even emailed them to complain (yet!)

The email also states that if I ordered the backup cd's these would still be dispatched.

Happy days - sort of!



A:Digital River refund

Ok, I know some have cracked it, and others haven't, but I thought I would share this one with you.

I am running a MacBook Pro, and had Windows XP running under bootcamp. Downloaded from Digital River and had all the problems. Finally got it to boot, but wouldn't install due to unable to create folder.

Scrubbed bootcamp partition and tried using Parallels. So far so good, but not for long. Won't take my product key as I have the upgrade product 32bit, but at least it got that far.)

Now, reloading windows XP on bootcamp, and my XP disc has a scratch on it and can't be read

Ah well

Any help would be great.

You can do it. See this DR help link:

Step 2 ? Download the ISO Image of Windows 7
Please obtain these links by contacting Digital River customer support. The Windows 7 ISO file is large (>2GB). Please verify that you have sufficient hard disk space to download this file and install Windows 7. Approx. 20GB will be enough for both operations.
Download the Windows 7 ISO image and save the file to a location you can remember. The download may take a considerable amount of time on slower internet connections.

I've been following the above thread where a guy kept trying to download a Windows 7 iso from Digital River, and it was wrong size/'not an iso' etc. Even though I don't need any iso's myself, I thought I'd have a go at downloading one to see what the OP's problem was. Sure enough I had the same result - 2.49GB (not 3.09GB for x64). Twice in fact.

That was browser download, so I tried 2 separate download managers. Seemed fine at first, but both stopped at 99.9%. Curious . . .

I'm starting to wonder if Microsoft are playing the old 'poison torrent' game - record labels sometimes release bad torrents of music CDs into the wild and fans download them (illegally) but are disappointed when it's a fake. After a few more useless attempts to get the CD, the pirate gives up and buys the product (well that's the theory).

Pretty soon all computers on sale will be Windows 8, and a lot of folk will buy one but want to downgrade to W7. MS seem to be moving the goalposts on that scenario, but no probs - we can just get a W7 iso from Digital River. Or can we ???

Just like the 'poison torrents', after several failed W7 Digital River downloads I guess MS expect us all to give up and buy into W8 (and buy their video's + mp3's).

A:Something wrong at Digital River ?

You can remove your tin foil hat - sort of.

I used Pale Moon to download the ISO mentioned in the thread and it was fine
(e.g. I could mount it via Virtual CloneDrive and look around at the files...
...I could also build a virtual machine from it via VirtualBox.).

I also downloaded two other ISOs at the same time. One was fine, but X17-59465 was weird.
The last ISO in the screenshot above should be that same size as the first ISO.
X17-59465.iso looked fine.
I could mount it via Virtual CloneDrive.
I could even start the OS install process, but it barfed:

Notice the size being reported during the download.
That download was the 3rd try.
The completed download below it was 2nd try.

And these two download attempts were via another ISP:

Both of those downloads were via IE10. Both claimed that the download was interrupted. I looked at the file size of the ".partial" file before hitting the Resume button. The ".partial" file was the same exact file size (2.619...) shown in the first image of this post. Pressing Resume started the download all over again - but the "resumed" download made no claim of an interruption. Each second try just gave me the 2.619... file.

How odd.

PC Details:
- Windows XP Pro, 2002, most recent updates all applied including service packs
- AMD 64 X2 Dual (5600+)
2.91 GHz, 2Gigs RAM

The computer has been protected since last format and reinstall with Avira Anti-Virus and Spybot S&D. It is regularly kept updated and scanned. It is defragmented regularly.

Basically, I am having about a 5 minute start-up. It has been this way for some time, and it is difficult to see what is causing it. I have stripped down the start-up items with msconfig to the basics, and still the problem persists.

Everything seems to load within the first minute or so, but the delay seems to be caused in waiting for the wireless icon to show on the taskbar. The internet connection goes live, as I have Skype starting up and it shows as online within the first minute or so. However, the icon takes until the very end to load. In fact, all of the desktop icons do not load until the OS is fully booted.

I have done some searching in this forum and elsewhere and managed to see some posts about conflicts with wireless cards and WZC, but none of these have applied to my card (Dynex Wireless G Enhanced - DX-WGPDTC) and specific situation (as far as I can tell). I have tried updating drivers for this card and no luck.

But again, this is just a suspicion which I have not yet been able to confirm. I also do not suspect malware/spyware, as I generally keep my PC well protected against these sorts of things.

I have Windows XP Home - sp2 with Office 2003, Acrobat 7

My computer works like a dream but the following things are unusually slow:
- Opening documents (.doc, .pdf, .zip, .rar, .ppt, .xls) is extremely slow, taking about 30-40 seconds
- Right clicking on documents (not folders, shortcuts etc, only documents) takes 30 secs to get the menu
- Copying / Cutting documents takes 30 secs to do the initial copy / cut, quick to paste though

Despite this, the following things relating to documents works at normal speed:
- Opening the documents' program (word, acrobat, excel etc) from a shortcut is normal
- Opening a document from their respective programs' "open" function works normal

I am currently connected to a LAN, and when i disconnect the cable, everything i have said about the documents above works fine and dandy

I have run almost every conceiveable spyware, adware, virus, parasite, registry etc etc program i could find, but nothing seems to fix this problem, i am thinking it is obviously a network problem.

Hello everyone, first time post here. I will make every attempt to make it brief.

A 500GB external drive failed on me and I needed to restore all the files (mainly JPEGs) from Backblaze.

I was in the process of downloading the 143 GB compressed file to my Win7 machine and saw that my download speed was only 2.5Mbps. According to Verizon FIOS my internet speed should be 10/2. I added the Firefox plugin "Internet Download Manager" to try to speed things up.

If you do the math, the download would take well over 15 hrs. In the middle, there was a connection problem and I needed to start ALL over. Besides upgrading the FIOS speed, is there anything I can do on my computer's end to speed up the download? Hardware, software, tweak, plug-in, etc??

In another possibly related issue, I was transferring a very large 40 GB file from my external HD connected to my Win Vista machine to my Win7 machine's internal HD and it also had a transfer speed of about 2.5Mbps.

The external HD on the Vista machine is connected by USB 2.0 and the network is through my Verizon FIOS wireless N router. The Win7 machine has a brand new DELL network card.

How can I fix or speed up these two problems.

Thanks so much for your suggestions.

A:Two (related?) Issues: Transfer Speeds VERY Slow

The slow speed sounds like some sort of hard drive speed issue to me, but I'm probably wrong.

Regardless, here's a few ways to speed up your internet speeds.

1) Use a download manager that supports pausing and resuming downloads. This allows you to resume a "broken" download on most servers. My favorite download manager for Windows is Flashget 1.9. I don't particularly like the new version (3.5), but you might want to try that as well.
FlashGet(??)-Best Download Manager

2) Make sure that your download manager knows to use multiple connections. This simply causes the download manager to download multiple parts of the same file at the same time. It can speed up certain connections. This is automatically enabled in most download managers.

From what I've seen, USB 2.0 speeds when not using a system cache tend to average around 22-25 MB/s on my computer. In other words, you should be able to transfer a 1GB file in a bit less than a minute. Extrapolating onwards, you'll have over 60 GB in an hour and so on.

Downloads using a 10/2 internet connection such as your own should average to around 1.25 MB/s. In other words you should be able to download about 75MB a minute and 4.5 GB an hour. 150GB will take about 33 hours to download. If your download said 15 hours, you're downloading at approximately 2.5MB/s.

Keep in mind that your rated line speed is measured in Megabits per second and your actual download speed that you see is rated in Megabytes per second.

My specs are:

I7 8700
GTX 980ti
Cosair 2x 8gb ram
Windows 10

I have a fast internet connection, I dont speak megabits so I download at around 27megabytes per second when wired. I have been forced to move my PC so bought a wireless PCI card which has a bandwidth of 450Mbps. It will only download at around 2 megabytes per second. I tried on another of my PCs running windows 7 and it worked fine appearing to download around 17 megabytes per second. This made me think it was related to windows as it was a windows 7 PC. Here are things I have tried to troubleshoot it:

I reinstalled windows 10
I installed windows 7
I made sure all drivers on motherboard were up to date
I swapped the PCI slot
I tried a USB wireless dongle (also didnt work, same behaviour roughly 2megabytes per second and yet worked on my other PC)
I tried turning on and off location in windows 10
I am at a bit of a loss as to what is causing this and how to fix it. I play online games sometimes and i get rubber banding. Downloads are slow when I pay quite a lot of money for a fast broadband connection. I can only assume it is related to the hardware and perhaps a setting in the bios may help but i cant see anything obvious. Does anyone have any ideas to help please?

Basically, I have an XP machine that was acting up. For some reason, WIN98 was loaded onto the machine by someone else (XP was originally what came on the PC). A new harddrive was also installed at the time WIN98 was loaded. So brand new hard drive, with bare bones WIN98, running unbelieveably slow. Did some basic troubleshooting, didnt seem to have any viruses or spy problems. Everything worked but it was ridiculously slow loading programs, opening windows, even just responding to mouse clicks. Long story short, formatted the drive, and tried to install XP.

The XP install also ran extremely slow, you could watch it copy each individual file! Machine is an HP Pavilion XT938 desktop, has 128MB memory, 80G hard drive, 1.3AMD Athlon processor. Should be plenty to run WINXP with no problems. I let the install run all night. After finally making it through the setup/configuration, it wouldnt boot past the welcome screen. I let it sit all night again just to see if it would go past, but it did not.

Tried another hard drive, tried other memory, same results. I am NOT very good with hardware related issues, but Im convinced this is hardware related. Where should I start troubleshooting from this point? Possible motherboard issue?

Thanks for any help.

A:Xp Machine Running Slow, Hardware Related?

Has it always had 128 meg of ram? That is way low for Win XP, it will run, but at a crawl. 256 is good, 512 is better. RAM is very cheap these days, I would try that and then go from there.But, if the computer has always had this small an amount of ram, and has gotten slower, there may be other problems.You could go to pcpitstop.com and try their diagnostic program, it will give you some hardware information.If you hadn't changed the hard drive I would also suspect virus or spyware and unless you are 100% certain the second drive was clean I would run and post a Hijack This Log. Especially do this if you go to pc pitstop and they say there are problems in this area.

Check the time of your movie, and calculate the bitrate with the bitrate calculator that comes with DivX or with my bitrate calculator from my site if you are using DivX5.11 or earlier.

If the bitrate goes under 600 kbps, resize down to 320/240 or so.

But if it's not allowing Product Keys from COA stickers then it is another ridiculous attack on the ability of MS customers to get the best possible install of the OS they bought with their PC even after over a million consumers have done so following Clean Reinstall Windows 7. I honestly thought we were beyond this, but apparently not.

I'm going to wait a day before bringing this up to the MVP forums to see if anything changes.

There is a problem with the page you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed. When the Web server (while acting as a gateway or proxy) contacted the upstream content server, it received an invalid response from the content server.

Many many years ago (decades) before most of you were even born, there was a game called River Raid on Atari which we hooked up to our TV at home.

I am wondering if there is such a version that I can play on my laptop?

Of course I would have to buy a joystick and would very much prefer the very simple, single calibered joysticks that we used to use (OLD BLUE) that will connect to my Windows XP.

Any opinions, or suggestions please?

These days, I am feeling very nostalgic (not to mention, old and weary), and I do miss those good old days where life was much simpler.
