  1. Thanks for the info Dennis I might give it a go... and as for wifi... well my desktop machine like all my other devices connect to the net via a wifi 4G hot spot device Got no phone line for ADSL out here in the wild south west of Victoria
  2. I"m assuming that I can download my purchases "movies" again to > android on my PC. So I might wait and see how it go's for you 1st Dennis
  3. Has anyone here tried this ? https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/22665/run-android-on-your-netbook-or-desktop/ I have a bunch of movies on my Android Tablet that I purchased from Google Play, anyway I thought this might be worth trying so as I could watch them on my PC.
  4. Thanks mta No Win10 here And my XP machine was recycled and turned into a washing machine year's ago To do the change with "Vista" I had to follow the directions in my post above... #23 Any way I decided to let System Restore have 5GB max instead of 90GB that was allocated!
  5. Isn't ticking that setting in DF going-to avoid the issue of Windows "jinking around" ? I"m navigating to System Protection the way you have set out in your post' but when I'm looking at System Protection tab there is no "Configure" button ? so no "Max Usage slider" to use ?
  6. Thanks mta all is good again Now about "reduce the amount of % of disk space Restore Points take up" or just do this> https://forum.pirifo...showtopic=35459 ?
  7. Thanks mta Will try what you suggested 1st I found this posted on tom's Hardware site > Deleting some system restore points will not give disk space back as windows permanently assigns some hard drive space for system restore, you can reduce the disk space assigned for system restore, try the below steps. 1. Click the start menu 2. Click on All Programs, and then Accessories 3. From the accessories menu, right click on Command Prompt and select "run as administrator" 4. Type vssadmin list shadowstorage into the command prompt 5. The results should tell you the amount of storage used and the maximum amount allotted 1. Type vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=[your hard disk]: /On=[your hard disk]: /MaxSize=[how much space you want to allocate] 2. For example: "vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=2GB" 3. You should get a message saying successfully resized the shadow copy storage association, and you should have more free space on your hard drive. The disk defragmentation might have taken up hard drive space if there are errors on the drive. But I will go with your advice Thanks Craig NOTE! The steps above work for Windows Vista!
  8. Hi mta and happy easter Just ran wiztree and... I'm suspecting this ? > Been thinking about using my last restore point that was created by Revo uninstaller An hour or so before running DF Would this help ?
  9. Hey guy's I'm having the same problem ... 77 GB of free space has been used up some how? after running DF Cant find any additional Restore Points... and as for Shadow Copies? well I don't know where to look for them? I also had "Stop VSS when defragmenting NTFS volume" un checked. Have run Windows Disk Cleanup & ChkDsk on restart etc. Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2
  10. If you use Avast AV > Avast safe-zone browser has a built in video down-loader extension that works well with youtube video's > (mp4) 720p HD
  11. Thanks for the info guy's I'v done the same as Andavari
  12. Been thinking about stopping windows from checking for updates since it has sp2 and theres no more support for vista anymore The only thing is windows security center is going to complain every time I start my PC! Is it worth keeping windows update enabled ? just to stop the nagging ?
  13. Yeah I had one but my dog did an unmentionable thing to it... Then buried it!
  14. Nice one mta According to the map above I'm living right on the border of Texas & Louisiana
  15. Australian attractions Well if anyone is planing a holiday here in my country here are some suggestions "click the link below" http://www.australia.com/en/places.html Some stats > Heap's of space here > Australia is 7,682,300 sq. km; England is 244,820 sq. km; so, Australia is approximately 31 times bigger than England. Australia's Size Compared. Australia is the planet's sixth largest country after Russia, Canada, China, the USA, and Brazil. At 7 692 024 km2, it accounts for just five percent of the world's land area of 149 450 000 km2, and although it is the smallest continental land mass, it is the world's largest island ! BTW Beware of drop-bears, gundiewolups, and buryakas! OK theres no such thing as a drop-bear! A drop bear (sometimes dropbear) is a hoax in contemporary Australian folklore featuring a predatory, carnivorous version of the koala However! BEWARE! of Gundiewolups & Buryakas!
  16. Murphy's law! If it can happen it will Like the back hand action in that video but I thought he was a goner when his foot went in the hand basin
  17. "Exactly what I thought and I now have an image of an Australian guy chasing after a spider with a thong!!" ​I reckon in a pair of foot wear thongs & "G" type string thong chasing after a spider with a firm grip on his thingy > "Dyson Stick Vacuum" "Huntsman spiders aren't venomous?" well just a bit. But if it ain't gonna kill ya it ain't that bad
  18. Isn't that the same link Dennis ?
  19. I think it's a world wide epidemic
  20. mta Do you mean foot wear "thong" or "G" type string of thong ?
  21. A few year's ago I was chatting on team speak with an American friend and he was checking out some site about Australian spiders... Telling me witch ones were dangerous and not dangerous... He see's a pic of a Huntsman and say's wow that thing looks like a Tarantula but it say's that Huntsman's are harmless... I said that's not right ! break down the name ! "Hunts - Man" They DO bite ! but there not venomous... they luv apples!
  22. Thanks razz One issue for me to do with Dropbox! Well I can't remember the last time I used it so I guess I should close my account? Dropbox: In mid-2012, Dropbox suffered a data breach which exposed the stored credentials of tens of millions of their customers. In August 2016, they forced password resets for customers they believed may be at risk. A large volume of data totalling over 68 million records was subsequently traded online and included email addresses and salted hashes of passwords (half of them SHA1, half of them bcrypt). Compromised data: Email addresses, Passwords
  23. mta I luv it and I'm betting that you do to!
  24. Well mostly people with an RC addiction They need what ever it is> race truck, drift car, plane... to perform for longer (just go fast!) Plenty of videos on youtube RC addicts don't just live here in OZ! It's world wide! Just like the use of Apple products "Oh yea, this topic is about Apple" Yeah I'm an RC addict
