Preferred Solution: interesting question i was asked..

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A LOT. Searched this forum and have read countless entries. HOWEVER, I take the term "Newbie" to a new high (or low) and it's too advanced for me to understand.

Have Nero Express 6.3.1.15. Want to burn AVI files so I can watch on my DVD player. I KNOW Nero can't do this (right?) and it needs to be converted to MPEG. Questions:

1) What is the EASIEST (and free) way to do this? I know there's TMPGE and others. Smart guy but NOT AT THIS!!! VERY stupid. Which option do I go with and is there a "Super dummies" guide on how to operate it?

2) What's the difference between MPEG1 and MPEG2? I've seen this mentioned a few times but don't see how they differ.

Is it possible to send a fax over a cell phone? Hubby posed this question today. I can't think of a way it could be done, but promised I'd try to see if anyone here had ever heard of it being done.
 

A:Interesting question

A quick google search

Question: How can I send faxes with my cell phone?

Answer:
Our fax software can send faxes with cell phone modems, as long as your modem can be seen from a COM Port on your computer, and your cell phone carrier supports this. You may need to call your cell phone service provider to ask if faxing is supported.

A:An interesting question

The laptop screen is hard wired (digitally) to the laptop motherboard.

It's a proprietary digital interface that differs between makes and models.

It's not therefore "available" to use as an external monitor, even if you were to disassemble the laptop.

Hi,

I was wondering if the following is possible or not.
I want to put a message box on certain folders. To explain, when the user opens a certain folder, windows puts up a message on the screen with a message like "This folder is out of date, please use folder 3." or something along the same lines and then open the folder when they click "OK".
I don't want to restrict access, I just want to give the user information when they enter a folder.

I have searched about a bit but I don't really know if it is possible and what to search for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They didn't, the problem was created by an outdated file located on the Microsoft Update servers.
 
When the Windows Update Client on your computer tries to update, first it check if there is a new version of the client on the server and during that check it downloads a file that didn't pass the validation check because of the expired date.

Is there a way to block someone from booting up a computer?

(I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this question.)

I have an individual who frequently spends time at my house, and I do not want her to have access to this computer. I'm sure there is a way to do it, but I don't know how. I've tried going to the CMOS screen on start up and setting a password there - It didn't work. I can't remember if there is a password command that can go into a DOS .bat file.

I have an Intel Pentium III, 500 MHz processor. The "brand" name is Pionex. I'm not sure of the motherboard type.

I would appreciate any insite on this problem. Thanks in advance.

one of the mucky-mucks got a new laptop today, imaged it, installed his custom apps, copied over his profile, installed all necessary software for his various apps, and the only problem I am having is that he wants his custom dictionary imported. Now, I know that with word it's normal.dot; I know this as I tend to have most of my office suite products pretty customized and back up the toolbars rather frequently, as I don't feel like re-adding a few thousand entries into the custom dictionary.

My question, however, is is there a place where office stores ALL of the custom dictionary stuff, as when he opens outlook all his custom entries are popping up in spell checker, and he understandably doesn't want to rebuild that.

I had thought that by bringing over his profile it would solve that issue, or rather had assumed it, as nobody has ever voiced that question before in 5 years of doing this.

So is there a central repository that office dumps stuff in outside the profile that I need to bring up to his new machine?

I connect to a hotspot with a USB dongle. I want to connect another machine, a Wii to be exact, in another room but it can't recieve the signal from the hotspot. I was wondering if there was a way to use the wireless router I have, which only has one input and that is ethernet, to somehow extend the signal to the other room? I have no way of plugging my USB adapter into the router. Can the router plug into the ethernet port on my computer and transmit what is being received via the USB dongle? Thank you guys so much.
 

A:Interesting USB adapter / router question.

Bridging wireless connections with a pc

Short answer yes.
I currently have a DLink router in one room, a gaming bridge in another room and a USB wireless adapter in a third room. The internet connection from my cable modem service is being bridged to the usb adapter which relays all the internet to the router. The router also communicates wirelessly with the gaming bridge passing along all that traffic.

If you can connect the WII to the router/gaming bridge(one ethernet port makes it sound more like a bridge) then connect the router to your pc using the ethernet port. Finally there should be two connections under "Start>settings>network connections" (assumes windows xp). Select the two connections (holding ctrl while clicking) then right click either and select "bridge connections". That should pass all traffic from your wireless USB adapter to the ethernet adapter.

I don't have a WII but for the XBox 360 bridging was prefered to Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) as it blindly forwards all ports and eliminates the need to specify what ports are necessary for gaming.

Good Luck

On discord, its not uncommon for me to come across "Cursed MP4 Files" with strange properties.

I'm incredibly interested how the creators of these files were able to get their results and mostly I want to make my own "cursed files". Some of the properties I've seen are video lengths upwards of 13,000 hours long, yet still being 1 MB. I've also seen videos that have negative video lengths and videos that display the video length as 0, yet still plays a video.

How were some of these made? I can file share the specific MP4 files in question

this is going to sound bizarre, but i need the info...i have been sending my husband nude photos to his mediacom email account. i asked him for his password and he freaked out and said i couldn't have it. it seems silly, but why would he say no? anyway, i don't want his password at all, i'm just wondering if someone can verify something for me...my husband claims that he cannot give me his password because i won't be able to see any emails, as all his emails sent to the mediacom address are forwarded in 15 seconds to outlook express on his work computer. he claims that i cannot have his password because the mediacom email is for work, and others in his store have access to the address log in, but he says they cannot see my photos because they are going to outlook. how does this work? sounds odd to me. basically, even though on my home computer i can go to the mediacom website and technically log in to his account if he gave me his password...but i wouldn't see any emails?
this is what hubby says...and is outlook truly this amazing

mediacom doesn't delete the messages, outlook express takes them from mediacom, and delivers them to my inbox....It is amazing when you think about it.
 

A:question about outlook and mediacom mail communication...interesting story at least

If he has Outlook Express set to check for new mail every 15 seconds and to delete downloaded messages from the (Mediacom) server immediately then what he says is true. I've never used OE, but I doubt that you can set it to check for mail more frequently than every minute.

Hello!
Like so many others before me, I have an issue and want help... And I’d be very grateful to anyone who can help...

So... yesterday, I believe, I was browsing around the internet... and I got the typical "This page cannot be displayed" error when I attempted to go to one of my heavily frequented websites. I refreshed a few times, as I thought the error popped up a bit quickly (and everyone knows that IE will, on occasion, toss that error at you for no good reason -_-)... but to no avail...

I shrugged, and went off to another of my regular websites. Same error. Now this struck me as odd. I refreshed a few times... both of these websites are LARGE websites... and generally are not down... one of them can be slow and sluggish on occasion, but very rarely down... Perhaps there was something wrong with my net connection? A few other clicks around the internet revealed that some websites would still load normally as though there was nothing wrong... So maybe just those websites, then?

I sent links to a few friends of mine over Yahoo!... all three of them said that the two webpages that would not load at all loaded fine for them... ...Even odder.

After a bit more experimentation, I discovered:

I am so sick of viruses and crap :(

I have been having probs with my pc for awhile now, i tried like 10 anti virus programs and it seems they all are crap now days and keep showing different results.

Latest one I tried (and is installed currently) is Kaspersky and I keep getting virus pop up notifications out of the blue unlike any of the others I have tried.

Anyways, I used to go to the Windows Live Safety Center and it would detect 0 viruses, now when I go there and scan even after I just scanned my whole pc with Kaspersky and it supposedly killed like all the viruses, it is showing I have 11 viruses and 234 detected items..I get the feeling I have got a bad one and am going to have to do a reformat of XP :(..


I used to use Panda but it has degraded in quality over the past few years and dosn't seen very effective anymore..anyways, sorry for making this such a long beginning...what I wanted to ask was if someone could check my HijackThis log and let me know what they think?

Hi there,

Truely, i know about that this is a often asked question,
but I dumbass did trap on it and im not able to fix it.
Ok, lets talk a bit more in what ive got.
I am Developer of a Half-Life Mod, and im working on
this computer really long time - without problems.
If there were some, i did fix them.
But now im stuck.
After getting the PC-Game Diablo2 from a good friend,
i did need a NoCd-Crack.
I searched on some sites Im always using for getting them.
I found one, downloaded, and i had a Self-Extracting Archive.
After extracting, a black windows-window appered and
it did execute 3 files which got extracted.
And then everything happened fast.
Bam! Popups, faked Virus Warnings, and my PC got hell slow.
Then, Antivir did react.
"C:\WINDOWS\System32\mllmm.dll" - A trojan Virus.

The most things what happened I forgot.
The main thing is, i tryed to google for a good way to fix this.
Ive tryed "Vundofix", but it stuck at deleting the file \system32\dlkms.dll or something,
i dont remember. It couldnt delete it.
So finally, I searched help at this Forum.

I am trying to decide between these two processors...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103546

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103547

The only real difference I can see is in the L2 cache...since I use my rig for hardcore gaming, I'm not sure which one is worth it's weight in gold. Is the larger L2 cache really worth the extra $100+, or is the performance difference so small as to make it worthless?

Also, i'm planning on sticking with the nforce4 mobo's for this new setup(dual-core). I don't plan on using the usb for more than mouse/keyboard and maybe a card reader, so will I still be having trouble with the nforce boards, or is the usb issue the only big one plaguing everyone?

Not sure what I got...

A:Well I was asked to post it here so...

Hello and welcome to TSF.

Tetonbob asked you to post all your logs. All I can see is the extra.txt here. Please post the main.txt too.


Quote:




Don't forget to post the main.txt from DSS, and also give some more information in that new thread, for whomever happens to pick up the thread. A link to this one would be fine.

The other needed log should be located at C:\Deckard\System Scanner\main.txt

ok, so i know i shouldn't have forwarded a couple of ports (6881-6883) around Windows' firewall, but i just "had" to try a big BitTorrent download. 3 open ports overnight = my PC is chock full of problems.

Least of which is this PowerScan and Bargain Buddy??

I'm sure that there is most likely more, so if i just go ahead and post my HijackThis log, can someone take a look and tell me what to get rid of??

Hi

I have Win 2000 which keeps asking me for drivers on startup for a CD Rom and Ethernet controller which I keep reinstalling and Device Manager says they are ok, but on every restart, it asks for the drivers again.
I'm puzzled
 

A:Drivers keep being asked for

Try getting the special drivers that come with the OS for doing a clean install of the OS. They usually come on one of the recovery disks and are for the chipset, buss, network, audio, video and others and have to be installed right after the install. You can get these drivers either from the manufacturers web site for the computer or the motherboard.
