  1. To find your amount of installed RAM you can also right click My Computer and select Properties->General, it will be listed at the bottom along with other system info. Your slowdown can also be the cause of a fragmented system registry, which is something NTREGOPT or RegCompact.NET can take care of. There's many reason a system can slowdown, however the usual culprits to look into first are running tasks and disabling unnecessary ones such as an IM client, media player, etc., which is a first step to take. If all else fails upgrading your RAM by installing more will help significantly if you already don't have enough. WinXP does need a minimum of 512 MB RAM to run smoother, however more ram than that will help even more.
  2. One bug I encountered is when updating the definition files it will sometime's crash when trying to apply them or initiate them (unsure which one it is), however that rarely happens.
  3. That feature has already been requested many times. For now you can use NTREGOPT, or RegCompact.NET.
  4. As always thank you MrG!
  5. You're correct I was wrong about CCleaner removing the cookies4.dat file, I totally forgot that I added Opera to the winapp2.ini file a long time ago. To clean the cookies, etc., you can add this to winapp2.ini: ---- [Opera 8] 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|opera6.adr.sbsd.bak FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Opera\Profile\Cache4|*.* ---- The .sbsd.bak for filekey 2 and 3 remove two files Spybot SD creates when scanning Opera.
  6. I haven't had any problems like that and I've been using Opera since v5.xx.
  7. I was wondering where this Wilson WindowWare comes from since I've never installed it myself. I viewed the info on their website however that didn't explain as to how it's on my system, unless of course Microsoft uses it as a needed Windows file. The registry has this info: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wilson WindowWare] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wilson WindowWare\Settings] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wilson WindowWare\Settings\WWWBATCH] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wilson WindowWare\Settings\WWWBATCH\DllUsage] "WB32I"="WBDBR32I.DLL" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wilson WindowWare\Settings\WWWBATCH\MAIN] "STATIC"="23" The C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WBDBR32I.DLL file has this info: File version: 2.6.2.18 Description: WIL Script Processor DLL Copyright: Copyright © 1988-1998 Wilson WindowWare, Inc. All rights reserved. ProcessLibrary.com has no info on WBDBR32I.DLL. Also it's not infected according to Jotti's malware scan.

    Yes, I've seen some forums that use it however I don't recall ever being a member of a forum that used that as the forum software. Sorry I didn't know Invision Power Board wasn't free.
  9. Are you talking about CCleaner, or Opera's built-in Delete Private Data feature? Edit: CCleaner does take care of the cookies, just run Analyze and it lists cookies4.dat. Also Opera's Delete Private Data can be customized by clicking Tools->Delete private data->Advanced. Opera will remember the advanced settings.
  10. They always have been! I upgraded from a licensed v7.23 and wondered what the heck was going on, but after a few minutes I adjusted. At least v8.xx loads faster than the v7.xx series, seems to run smoother as well. Anyone who is using Opera remember to use Spybot SD's Immunize feature to enable protection in Opera, you have to manually enable it under 'Permanent Opera immunity'.
  11. Never tried them, however I know two people that use them and they swear by them. However they also said they can get messy I don't remember the website address, but there's a company that sells already refilled Inkjet cartridges with their brand of ink at about 50% lower than the retail price of the brandname competition.
  12. I did it early in the morning, so that may explain it.
  13. Congratulations rridgely!
  14. Oh well, I'll just stick to what I already have. Thanks for saving me the download time by telling me that! When you state Avast can block sites, are you talking about the free Home Edition or the commercial Pro edition?
  15. Have you tried to reinstall Nero, and apply the latest updates or patches?

    You could start by visiting the Invision Power Board.
  17. If you use Opera and notice that forums, etc., that quickly have page changes aren't getting updated when you visit the main page you can change a setting in Opera that will force it to always check the document for changes. Screenshot (click to enlarge):
  18. Talk about fast, they emailed me back within a few short minutes. Included in the email was the registration for the following systems: Windows, Linux Intel, Linux PowerPC, Linux Sparc, FreeBSD, Solaris, Mac, Epoc/QNX, OS/2
  19. This is cool and rather strange for commercial software, but hey I'll take strange if they're legally giving it away for free.
  20. My only real gripe about Norton is the amount of stuff it installs. When I used it in my Win98 days it didn't hog resources on my old system although it did have a slow loading GUI after NAV 2000. I've never tried it on my WinXP system and never will.
  21. @ englishmen That's very impressive with it blocking worms! Can you input your own things to block into PeerGuardian, such as websites, images, IP addresses, and IP Ranges? Also what is it's format for blocking, is it at all anything like what CookieCop and WebWasher can do with wildcards, which looks like this? *badsite* *.badsite.* *.badsite.com
  22. Yahoo! Konfabulator, info about it is in this thread, get it while it's still free.
  23. I was watching the news and they showed footage of so many people whom didn't or didn't have the means to evacuate standing in line to enter the SuperDome shelter, however the good news was they reported a figure of about one million people who complied with the mandatory evacuation orders. I witnessed a tornado a few miles away from my location on an Illinois highway some twenty-five or so years ago when I was with my grandfather however at least there's a chance to get out of their path if you see them, I couldn't image a hurricane and don't ever want to experience one.
