  1. So mta are you saying that my speed is OK ?
  2. Hi mta Is that a mobile speed test ?
  3. I wonder if anyones emailed this joke to samsung
  4. Hi guys Since I don't have a fixed Internet connection "no land line" I rely on a mobile broad band router> (Netgear Nighthawk M1) my ISP is Telstra they are the only ones that have this mobile router. This hot spot wifi device is rated as the fastest and most up to date device of it's type on the Australian market. So I'm wondering if any of you have and use mobile Internet connections "full time or part time" + what sort of speeds are you getting? Here's my test results. The Melbourne server is about 300km from my place.
  5. WOW! That reminds me of a old PC game called "Road Rash" for obvious reasons
  6. Yeah it's a bit of a merry go-round I don't update via "CCleaner" I just go here > http://www.piriform.com when CCleaner notifies me of an update. I'm not saying it's the best way... It's just my way;) EDIT Even better > http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds as Andavari & mta have said
  7. Yes I noticed that clicking the update link in CCleaner takes me to http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/update and from there if you click the no thanks button you end up here > http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download?upgrade
  8. Hi TommyRay Try here > http://www.piriform.com
  9. Hi legendsofbatsman I have the same issue occasionally and in my case it's a program (itunes) that causes a huge memory dump when I close it. Windows pops a message up about Data Execution Prevention bla bla... If you right click "System Memory Dumps" in the Analysis list and view "Detailed Results" you can see what program has caused this. Not saying only itunes dose this... just an example' and maybe you have a different problem.
  10. And the dogs & pears lived happily ever after.................. But where's Wally or Waldo ?
  11. Hi Andervari The current driver for this card has been installed and running with no problems for age's As for the card starting to die ? well I got 6 years out of my old original ATI card before the fan on the card failed... apart from the fan' the card still worked... until the temp got to much for it Anyway thanks all for the suggestions I think I've got just got to bite the bullet and get a new machine... had this for 8 years... so bye bye Vista ! and hello Windows 10
  12. Hi mta I'm using Nvidia's Driver version and the Geforce gui states that the driver is up to date. The card is about 2 year's old and I'm running "High performance" power settings in Windows > No Sleep, No Hibernation, etc. Windows Device Manager reports that (This device is working properly)
  13. Hi guy's This has been happening a bit lately Basically I get a black screen for 1 or 2 seconds and then a pop-up message from windows saying that "The video card driver stopped working and has now recovered" I have the latest driver for this > NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 (MSI) card + I'm running at default settings... no over clocking bla bla bla on this very low grade card. I'm wondering If my power supply might be failing ? This card only draws 30 watt' however this black screen issue only happens when my PC is doing very little or at idle ? If I'm watching full screen HD video or playing a 3D resource hungry game it's ok Oh yeah I'm still using Vista Any ideas, help... Craig
  14. Hi missminerva With speccy I can see my neighbors wifi info as well' and can also see their network in the list of available networks to join via Windows "Network and Sharing Center"> if I had their password I assume that they can see my info too. Keep your network security enabled ! And make sure a password is needed to join your network !
  15. The link for "Windows Installer Cleanup" opens a page with 404 not found
  16. Look's a bit like Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland I haven't been there yet' but I hope to some day
  17. I'm no moderator and the standard link also works for me "Piriform site"
  18. I just read an article about Kodi getting a bad rap ! https://www.howtogeek.com/290346/kodi-is-not-a-piracy-application/
  19. Also work's in chromium based browsers
  20. Clicking my center mouse button "wheel" lets my scroll without scrolling Just move my mouse in any direction. /\ \/ < > UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT
  21. Thanks razz Although I knew how to do that' I found some other interesting reading on that site
  22. Ok thanks for the info Will be having a chat to my ISP soon since my 2 year contract with my 4G device is almost up.
  23. Hey Dreamcookies I'm using "Windows Vista" so the steps I did in the post's above worked for Vista. For Windows 10 or any other Windows OS' I don't know ? AS for finding the missing GB's maybe give WizTree a go... the results may be different ?
  24. Hi Tasgandy Pomonal ! Yeah I know where that is ! And I know the Grampians like the back of my hand I actually went to school at Halls Gap when I was a kid ! many many years ago. These days I live in Hamilton. Now when you say "fixed wireless" do you mean "FON" or "Telstra Air" or am I barking up the wrong tree? My downloaded movies from Google Play are only playable on an Android device' or a Chrome Book' or through Chrome Cast to a TV That's why I'm considering Android on my PC.
  25. On an android device you can drag down the notification bar and access settings... so I wonder if ( can't open it via "top line notification" nor can't cancel it though it's been offered. ) is what rattazong is saying ? And as for "Smart Manager" ... on my Samsung Tablet I have to manually use it's features > in this case the RAM TAB which then gives you a choice to ether end all app's or selectively end only selected app;s.
