Cute robot - will this work for me?

Q: Cute robot - will this work for me?

Hi all ...

I found this cute robot to plug into my Android phone (supposed to work with any smartphone, incl. iPhone)
Do you think this will work with my Galaxy Spica? It's kind of a slow phone - what do you think? The website is www.wiserbots.com

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.)

Windows XP Home SP2
Cute ftp 7
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4 (paid)
I recently upgraded my Java to jre1.6.0 and removed all my "old" java versions.

Today I tried to upload my web site using Cute ftp. It uploaded fine but when viewed on the Internet I got an "Internal Server Error" #403 and/or #500

While researching this problem I came across several mentions of Java, as well as other possible explainations.

I just ran CCleaner and in the "Issues" section there is a long list of ActiveX/COM items that look like this;

Problem: ActiveX/COM Issue
Data: InProcServer32\C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\ssv.dll
Registry Key: HKCR\CLSID\{761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43}

In my Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall 4 (paid) I have ActiveX checked so it can't run.
Is there a connection between not being able to see my web site and this list of ActiveX issues, or the new Java? My web site has a few forms on it that use Java.

What is the best way to configure Cute ftp in the Kerio firewall so it is secure, but still works?

Am I even asking the right questions? I hope you can see something that might provide a clue.

Thanks for looking

Just a little reminder for all the members and visitors. The holiday season is here, and we are all thinking about our families, friends, and loved ones. Unfortunately, there are some evil people out there, who are not thinking about love and family. They are thinking up new ways to infect our computers and make our lives miserable.

If you should receive a nice invitation to open a Holiday Card, from someone close to you and who you trust, resist the impulse to open it. It is not that difficult for "the bad people out there" to steal the contents of "Mom's" address book and send a card with a bad virus in her name.

Furthermore, I will not even tell you to call first to make sure who the card is from. At best that "cute" card" will be the cause of your email address to be sold to others, until eventualy "they will get it".

In any event, I am not trying to dampen your holiday spirit but rather make sure it is a happy one.

Happy Holiday All

Hi,

We have had Cute Writer working perfectly for a number of years. Last week it starting to print with no text. Images and table structures are fine, just no text.

I have now installed the latest version and updated Ghostscript. I have also followed the instructions on the CutePDF support pages:

Text characters are wrong or missing in generated PDF file.
On Win2000/XP boxes, select CutePDF Writer properties in the application print dialog box and click "Advanced". Select "Download as Softfont" (default is "Substitute with Device Fonts") on TrueType Fonts setting for font embedding.
On Win98/ME boxes, open the property of CutePDF Writer and change the Fonts setting to "Always use TrueType fonts".

BUT ... still no text whatsoever.

This is on Windows Server.

Anyone else had this problem, and how the hell did you fix it?

Thanks.

OK, so yeah, I was working on an old HP, it had aol for years, it was 7 years old, still dial up...yeah...time to get a new one!

So I did! I thought it would be the end of my problems, but OH NO, of course not.

So three days ago, I got a new gateway 505GR, awesome cpu, actually probably TOO awesome, since I don't game, and I just like to surf, watch movies, and listen to the radio. The monitor is an upgrade...TFT-LCD Flat Panel, FPD 1750. I thought I was going to have an awesome picture quality, but there seems to be a lot of pixelation, some graphics on websites won't load, basically everything looks smudgy. Very technical word, I know.

I tried updating my graphics driver, I tried changing the resolution (they recommend 1240 by 1086) but since I am illiterate, I am afraid to do too much. Also, I am still on dial up since my DSL has not come yet, and I have a free month of Juno. Could the internet provider be the problem? The bad pictures and graphics and texts only show up bad and smudgy when I am on the Web...

Any help would be awesome, I appreciate it, and thanks for the site!

Robot City is an old '95 game. Nevermind why I'm wasting my time with it..

I can load the game just fine and everything works except for a small glitch in the display. When I move the mouse it leaves a large square trail behind it and distorts the screen turning it black.

The help file mentions this and I am running the game in 640x480 and 256 color just as it says I should.

Any ideas?

Here is the section of the help file that mentions it:

****************************************************************
7. Video Display Problems
****************************************************************
Robot City requires 256-color mode
Robot City is an 8-bit, 256-color application. In order to view
Robot City, you need a video card which supports at least 256
colors in 640x480 resolution. Robot City requires you run in 256
color mode. Other modes will cause colors to appear incorrectly
and may cause streaking or trails on the screen. If you are not
in 256-color mode, a warning dialog will appear when you launch
Robot City telling you to correct the problem, exit and restart
Windows.

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio laptop and recently whenever I use YouTube, Spotify, Netflix, stream or play audio/visual content anywhere the sound freezes and makes a robot noise constantly.

I am a dummy with computers and technical stuff but from what I have read on the web regarding this matter it could have been something to do with drivers, too much stuff on the hard drive, flash and/or java needing updating etc..

I have done all of these things (I think) and it still hasn't done anything! Could someone plleeassee advise me what I need to do to sort this out.

Also, my fan is very hot and sounds like a vacuum cleaner (I have tried cleaning it, I think I need a new fan) but could this be affecting anything?

edit: I use latest internet explorer, and sometimes chrome but it is the same on both of the browsers, and besides it happens with spotify which is downloaded?

It does sound like something having to do with your sound card drivers. I would go into the device manager which is in the system tab of the control panel and completely uninstall the sound card and any other related components; reboot; then let windows hopefully re-detect and reinstall the sound card and its associated drivers.If you need more info on anything just ask.

Hi there

The problem is definitely a software one, because you said you tried another sound card and the problem persists.
The problem is most likely coming from your codecs/filters.

If you have codecs installed, uninstall them and try playing again.
Still not working, uninstall all media players. Re install VLC and try again.

Last ting I can think of is that you download and install XP codec pack.
Just Google it, you will find it.

Hope this helps

- Purchased the WD15 and TB15 docks
- I work at a high-tech company, one that designs and works on PCs, laptops, and desktops.  I have a degree in EE.  So I am very very technical.  
- OS is Win10 Enterprise x64 with my company's standard IT bundle.  
Problems:
1. TB15 does not work.  USB devices will drop after 5 minutes and DP / HDMI will drop a few minutes later.  Tried all the drivers and BIOS updates.  TBT utility will fail to detect the dock even if connected. Updated TBT FW to NVM16.  It is only good for charging the battery.   
2.  WD15 partially works.  USB and DP work >80% of the time, but highly disruptive during the work day.  Decided to use it just for charging as well.
3.  Called Dell TS multiple times on the TBT problems above, and had MB replaced twice.  Problems remain.  I've just given up because their TS people have no clue about they product they are supporting, or just were not given any alternate path / options after replacing the MB twice.  I can attribute problems above to Dell's faulty TBT implementation.  
4.  Most annoying is the random, robot-voice, mouse/kb slowdown occurring a multiple times an hour.  I hear it when on Lync calls, watching videos, playing music, etc.  I tri... Read more

I've never heard of the 'Abuse Team Robot' but i jsut got a message that says, "Our robot has detected an abnormal activity from your IP address..probably connected with last epidemic of a worm which does not have official patches... we recommend you to install 'this patch' to remove worm files and stop e-mail sending. Otherwise your account will be blocked. Abuse Team Robot.

This sounds scary. Most of all, I have no way to verify whether or not it is true. I have not done anything yet. Anyone have any similar experience and advice? Thanks so much. Geranium.

Hello,

Here is my basic goal: to have a self-contained robot (computer) that can be added to most any wireless network (tcp/ip) and be found and recognized via the Internet with no additional set up. That's the ideal. To try this I'm using a Linksys router on a small LAN with Windows computers.

I note that Dell can remotely service a computer on a LAN. After giving Dell a code number on the computer, they can call a LAN, locate the computer and work on it remotely. This seems like a very good way of doing things and I'm wondering what they do and how they implement it?

Or, is there a better way? I've been looking at ARP a to find IP to MAC address mapping, but I think this is only useful from within the LAN and not from the Internet.

I gather there are two fundamental ways:
1> Port forwarding, which requires router setup.
2> Calling out to a server on the web, which then sets up a bidirectional connection. This would require an outside server.

Is that exhaustive?

I've been mining for information on this problem, trying to find good solutions.

Thanks for any feedback!

...John

Avast takes a look at the hacks from season one of Mr. Robot and explains what businesses can learn from them.

Season one of last summer?s hit new TV show, Mr. Robot, was filled with interesting and, for the most part, accurately portrayed hacks. The hacks were carried out by the show?s main character Elliot and hacker group fsociety. Their goal throughout the season was to take down the multi-national conglomerate, E Corp.

Although the hacks on the show were rather complex and to a certain extent elaborate, there are a few things SMBs can learn from them.

Hi.

I have built a web cam robot that you can control from any pc in the world.

I have equipped it with paintball and laser dome weapons and a red dot aim.

http://media.putfile.com/Tank_paintball_1

Do you think it would be interesting to have a Internet game with real webcamrobots in a paintball/laserdome battle and be able to hunt real people with the robot?

--------------------
Scandinavia and north of Europe get a delay/lag around 0.3-0.5 sec.
The rest of the world get a delay/lag around 1-3 sec because they have a satellite link.
Some few people get lucky and don't get a satellite link from USA or Australia and then get a delay/lag around 0.5-1 sec.
I will try to upgrade the web camera robots, so they will be able to compete against real people on a paintball/laserdome arena/field.
--------------------
