  1. I agree about the "blood stuff" and am not at all interested in those kind of games. 20 plus years in the military gave me all I wanted or more! I do like some games that are not so complicated. Had a Need For Speed and enjoyed that. Won't run on this machine for some reason. Will try the new card I ordered and see. Everyone that replied to my post, thanks very much.
  2. To be honest I don't have the knowledge to determine what is better than the other. I assume two guys that have the posts and reputations you and Andavari have the best ideas. So I did go with the 5570, just ordered it. Sure glad I found this Forum. Haven't got a bad recommendation yet. Thanks in advance,
  3. After reading some of the reviews, I've decided that this is not the card for me. I don't mind paying for a medium sort of card, so price is not a final factor. This PC has been a good one and although it's 4-5 years old I'll keep is running for a while. Will you suggest a couple more from New Egg that are somewhat better. The fact that this one doesn't have a cooling fan turns me away. If you have time, would consider it a great favor if you could help me with this. I know nothing about hardware. Regards,
  4. The separate Video Card GeForce 7650GS gave up on me after running hot so long, I think was the problem. I noticed one day it was running a Temp of 197 F. Shortly after that, nothing. I unpluged the DVI cable and am not getting the one that is on most machines like mine, again I think! It shows a INTEL ®83945G Express Family on Speccy. First thing I did was search for the 7650GS and I was surprised at the result. See Attachment. I'm sure there is another card that will work but I don't know how to look for something that is right. Would appreciate some guidance here. Gateway Vista Home Service PacK 2 Model GM5446E Processor CoreTM 2CPU 6320 1.86 1.87 GHz Memory (RAM) 2.00 32Bit System The above may not be necessary but included for you information. Another Post long ago I complained about not be able to use Windows Media Player and found out it was because of the bad Video Card. The VGA is sure downgrading from the DVI I had. I have now found something that might help you to help me. See the other attachment.

    How old are you

    Glad to have you here. I think I was the Senior until you came in. I'm nearing 77 and lost my seniority. Thank you!!! Good people here and they know all you will ever need to know about Computers. Just ask them and see.

    Registry Entires

    Well cleaning batch files sounds like what I'm looking to do, like a bunch of junk by Google. Is this, cleaning batch files, something an old Brain can do? I'm not very technical but can still follow direction fairly well. I spent almost an hour yesterday deleting them one by one, using Reg "Find Next" way. That gets old quick and the movement of the bar showed little progress. Thanks for the information.

    Registry Entires

    She meant well on what she did. I didn't realize that some Google entries were necessary, Believe I will install Google Toolbar and Google Updates again as recommended and then delete. Don't know how she did it all, with the program missing from REVO and IODeleter as well as Control Panel and yet it was still in the Registry. Thank all of you for the reply. This Forum is tops for me. Never have asked a question that I didn't' get answered. Redhawk, Alan_B and Aethec, thanks.

    Registry Entires

    While I was away for awhile my wife did me a favor, sure she did. While updating CC Cleaner she allowed Google and many of Google children into system. Realizing what she did, ran the uninstall from Control Panel, rather than the REVO program. She told me about it and I searched the Registry for GOOGLE and there seemed to be hundreds of entries. I know how to delete them one by one. Is there a way I can talk to the Registry to delete all Google entries? This one at a time stuff is tiring. Mudd
  9. Use Google Chrome when you wish,but I think I remember someone saying that IE had to be set as your default browser before the link in mail would work. Try and see if it helps.
  10. And I'm going to pretend that I'm an Old Man and believing that all this over and over, and more than over stuff is real. I deleted every thing that looked like JAVA based on what Andavari said many posts ago. Nothing bad has happened, have yet to have a failure with anything. You guys are confusing me!
  11. I was concerned as when I saw the total. Almost backed out. I use the iobituninstaller and it give you a total of the entries uninstalled, unlike Revo uninstaller. I saw the iobit mentioned on the forum once, think it was here, so tried it. For example I used Revo once to clean after a reformat and thought all was well. Once I got iobit I notice that Napster was still on my system, or an entry was still there. That convinced me to us iobit. Thanks for all the information you have furnished about this. Regards,
  12. For what it's worth, uninstalling JAVA cleared 2,056 entries from Registry.
  13. Thank you Sir. I will do exactly that. I don't use Open Office.org. I'm sure as I don't know what it is!!
  14. Butting in to ask about Java. Taking suggestion to uninstall JAVA, I find two entries: JAVA 6 update 24 and JAVA TM SE Runtime Environment 6. Should they both go? The two of them consist of 190MB. So, if not useful I'd like to do away with them. Am I safe in doing so?

    Ma'am, I know nothing! Just happened to hit upon another guy's problem. Thank you for all your help and the time you spent with me. Sure appreciate it. Sincerely,

    No problem with that. I have found the critter in the hen house, I think. I'm going to try to post a text from from notpad to explain better than I can. To you and all the good people out there that has tried to help me with this, a Big Thank You. Sure some of them must have a little Texas in them!! My Graphic Card burned couple weeks ago, and the machine reverted to the Generic Graphics. That answers all my questions. After you read the attached, (if it gets attached), you will see what I'm talking about. Again, thank to you and all the others. For sure the attachment was not originated from me. Got it from a Forum.

    It indicates "Started" and "Automatic." This was the first suggestion about the Services. Thanks, that eliminates a possible problem. I'm not going to quit. May not live long enough to find the problem but am going to look.

    I didn't know until you asked. I found some and NO they don't work with mp3 either.

    Associated AVI with QuickTime, Windows Media Center,and back to Media Player for each one. No change. As I mentioned to earlier, clicking an AVI file gives nothing. Right click and can open in Irfan Viewer which is fine. Just rather have it work like it is supposed to. Thank you.

    Been there, done that. No help. I just now uninstalled the Fix-It site. Thanks anyway. Still believe it went belly up when I was restoring.

    Went to the URL and checked as directed. My association for WMP is correct for AVI files. So something must be wrong with the WMP itself rather than the associations. And you said that WMP cannot be uninstalled. Maybe I'll try Microsoft. Hope they still offer support on Vista. They are such a hassle to work with but usually they work problems out. Earlier I mentioned that I had did a Factory Reinstall from a Partition on this PC. Prior to that WMP worked. Maybe during the reinstall something slipped. I'm not going to do that again. It take to much time for the Windows Updates. 111 to start with, then Service Pack 1 bring about 50 or so more. Service Pack 2 does the same. Only take about 15 minutes to restore but much time for the rest. I do have a good broadband download of 7-9 GB, still it's to much trouble just for one program. Thank you and all the others for the helpful hints and suggestions. Sure a great bunch on this Forum. Appreciate y'all!

    Yes Ma'am, I saw the window and it does not appear as mine does. I'm trying again to send a copy of it. Version is 11.0.5002.18311.

    Something is wrong. I have replied to your post twice and it's not posted. Maybe I'm impatient?
