  1. One of those Advanced cleaner settings removes the Quick Launch bar without the ability to have it stay re-enabled after cleaning. I don't know which one it is though since I quickly restored the registry to get the Quick Launch bar back.

    real player

    Reinstall whatever version you were using followed by a system restart, then try to uninstall it again. Note: Make sure you exit any Real Player components that may automatically start when your system does to better aid in it's removal. If you're using a version no longer supplied by Real you may be able to find it at http://www.oldversion.com/. After you remove it you may realise that you do need the ability to play Real Player files audio/video, the solution is to download Real Alternative.
  4. Sound's like some "professional" has been telling you some b.s. The only install "problem" would be the detection of adware/spyware infested programs that should have been scanned in the first place. Of course MSAS or any other good antispyware program with real-time protection is going to halt something when it's detected, it isn't called real-time protection for nothing. Agreed!
  5. Now that you bring that up it does make perfect sense. I'm almost thinking that law enforcement would be the only people who would have any real usage for such tracking capabilities, it would surely help them in finding counterfeit rings if they could back trace conterfeit paper money to a particular printer and person.
  6. That'll work unless you go to a store such as Radio Shack, they require name, address, and phone number even if you're paying cash. However I suppose one could refuse to devulge such information -- what're they gonna do not sell the item.
  7. I will personally continue to use MSAS as long as it remains freeware. The reason I'll continue using it is because on my previous XP install I ignored what I thought were two constant false positives: An MSIE restricted website registry key, and a VISE uninstaller .exe file. I'm now thinking MSAS was correct in finding two infections. Now after the fresh XP install MSAS didn't detect anything even though I'm using the same software, drivers, etc., except for the OEM installed crapware like AOL, Music Match Jukebox, etc. Although it hasn't found anything as of yet on this fresh install
  8. ROFL I'm completely allergic to beer, after drinking just one (can, bottle) I've always felt like I had the flu. I'm not allergic to harder liquor like scotch, etc., however I choose not to drink and haven't had any alchohol beverage in eight years.
  9. It's like an old relic from the Win9x days (or an OS flashback), that would commonly have various programs that wouldn't allow a system to shutdown without forcing the program to exit. I've only seen it twice within the last month, and it's no problem to click the End Now button to force it to exit, but like I said it's only occurred twice.
  10. What's even more revealing without needing some decoding routine to figure out what printer was used is: When printing with certain Microsoft programs it puts the file path on the printed paper.
  11. You can use your forum account for attaching images, etc., however I think there's a 500kb limit. There's also two sites which many forum users use for hosting images (they even include the code already made for you for posting images): * http://www.imageshack.us/ * http://xs.to/
  12. Well I suppose it wouldn't hurt to verify my new install is clean.

  13. CCleaner is a safe registry cleaner. You can always create a backup of the entries CCleaner finds for later restoration, you can also create a System Restore point if you're using WinXP or WinMe. Edit: I meant to say: You can always let CCleaner create a backup of the entries it finds.
  14. I suppose you'd need a HJT log for a proper analysis, am I right?
  15. Lol that's a no b.s. kind of answer. Straight to the point.
  16. I have an Audigy2 and some good Altec Lansing dolby surround sound speakers with a powerful subwoofer, and believe it or not my music is more enjoyable using a pair of Sony headphones I bought from a local drugstore for under $10 USD. However for a movie experience the speaker system is needed. Although the Audigy2 line of sound cards is good the software created by Creative is slow running crashy bloatware. My reason for primarily using headphones is because I'm constantly dealing with background noise from the refrigerator and freezer in the kitchen, and the constant noise of the fan run
  17. Unlocker can remove them followed by a reboot. With Unlocker you're going to have to manually right click each one and select Unlocker from the pop-up menu.
  18. Has anyone else had any shutdown and restart issues with Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta 1 installed and resident with its Real-time protection. I've noticed that my system is taking longer to shutdown and restart if the Real-time protection system tray icon is loaded, manually closing it however resolves the issue with gcasServ.exe. It's also the first time I've seen WinXP display a message about a program not responding during shutdown and restart.
  19. That is strange that it's only antivirus products that won't update. Are you sure your system is currently clean without any hidden malware infection stopping the updating process? What version of Sygate are you using? I ask because for many months they had a very buggy v5.6 available which many people couldn't install because the installer would fail (according to their forums). Hmm something strange, just noticed the last version of Sygate I used was v5.5 now it's the same with ZoneAlarm again another v5.5, all due to bugs though.
  20. 160 GB, which is a pain with so much lossless music. I'm planing on building a system for only playing music with a small LCD screen somehow mounted to the case or embedded into it for my entertainment room. It won't have any Internet, browsers, av, firewall, basically no b.s. to slow it down. Could just be your hearing, not everyone can hear a difference however you'd have to conduct a double blind ABX test to disprove or prove to yourself that you can't really hear a difference. I've completely given up on PC speakers altogether and now very rarely turn mine on which was a waste
  21. I'm saying it has some bugs that make it rather difficult to put up with on a daily basis, whatsmore I watched it slowly rot and reveal even more bugs on my WinXP system and Win98 system. ZoneAlarm isn't perfect, it does contain bugs of its own however if you use ZoneAlarm version (forget version 6.x) the bugs it has aren't as annoying as those in Sygate. Well to install eTrust EZ Antivirus you must first have an open Internet connection because parts of the program and the signature files have to be downloaded during setup. I'm not sure about having two trial licenses, I don't
  22. I'm thinking it's just Sygate -- if it isn't well then it's something else that's the cause. No other firewall I've tried has ever had such a behavior which was present on both of my systems. If you're using Windows XP make sure you enable the Windows Firewall for testing purposes to see if the updates will work, it's too risky to be unprotected without firewall protection.
  23. This is just temporary until all of Opera 8 is added into CCleaner. Instructions: 1. Open Notepad and paste the below text into the empty window: [Opera 8 (Single User)] LangSecRef=3027 Detect=HKCU\Software\Opera Software Default=True FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\profile|COOKIES4.DAT FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\profile|cookies4.dat.sbsd.bak FileKey3=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\profile|GLOBAL.DAT FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\profile|OPERA6.ADR.SBSD.BAK FileKey5=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\profile\CACHE4|*.* FileKey6=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\profile\cacheOp|*.* 2.

  24. I dealt with that behavior of it for over a year with Apple QuickTime (now using QuickTime Alt), when trying to access the Apple website, and some other websites such as Staples Rebates website. I had originally thought it was just a problem on my WinXP system until I dusted off my old Win98 system, installed AVG and found via SPF's logs that it was blocking AVG from updating, so I removed SPF and put good ole ZoneAlarm on the system for an instant cure.
