    Faulty LAN Settings

    Hey all. I might be searching incorrectly on the web for answers, but I am having a problem where everytime I boot Windows (Windows 7 64-bit professional), it defaults my LAN settings to proxy server. I am at home on my personal computer and I'm not on a network. I uncheck that and check...

    Need advice on new processor

    Music and video editing software. I'm doing a lot of projects for my school in my leadership project. I'm hoping I can just drop a couple hundred bucks or less instead of buying a whole new laptop

    Need advice on new processor

    It's been about 4 years since I bought my laptop and I'm looking to upgrade it since I'm using more and more brand new applications that are starting to stutter. Does anyone know if the Sony Vaio VGN-FW390's processor is upgradable at all? I currently have a t9550 processor installed and would...

    Virus change reversal

    Thanks. That worked, but after further digging and research, I figured it was best to bite the bullet and just reformat. Thanks, though.

    Virus change reversal

    I got some sort of virus on Tuesday. I ran a few virus scanners in safe mode and they caught about 14 different bugs/registry hacks so I think it's all quarantined. One of the changes the virus(es) did was that every file and folder is set as "hidden". Is there a registry setting I can change to...

    Laptop CPU

    Hi all. My sister gave me her old laptop so I can use it for school work. I would like to see if there is a better CPU, but I don't know anything about laptop CPU's. The model is a compaq nc6000 and it has an Intel Pentium M 479 1.6 GHz processor in it. Can I upgrade?

    super slow down

    Oh yeah, I never have any programs running if the defragger is going. I worked at a helpdesk for 2 years so I've got a good grasp on all the basic cleanup rules and what not, but this wildcard problem has stumped me.

    super slow down

    Well, this is a 40GB hard drive, so I haven't even used 20GB of space. I mainly use it to complete my Master's assignments/MS Office applications, so I don't use up much space. I would agree with the majority at this point and say I just need a defrag...

    super slow down

    How much space is left on your HD? Low space can cause slowdowns. Reformatting is sounding more and more likely... I have 26 GB of free space left.

    super slow down

    I noticed that Firefox is the slowest, even with only one tab going, it just comes to a halt. I haven't been running anything that would require a RAM or hard drive upgrade and up to a couple of weeks ago, it was running smooth as butter. I will run those extra programs and see what happens.

    super slow down

    I have a laptop that's several years old now. It has Windows XP Pro SP 3 on it. It had been working just fine until a month or two ago, but just recently, it started slowing down so much. I've run several spyware/virus programs both in and out of safe mode. They've found a few things, but it...

    DDR2 1066MHz or DDR3 1066MHz?

    Btw, can I just point out have futile it is to say any computer hardware is "future proof"? There is no such thing anymore. Only future resistant.

    Do you understand this graph?

    I really like the look of the graph, but it is quicker to digest in a 2D format, much like majestic12's above.

    Windows.old

    I upgraded my OS to Windows 7 from Vista not too long ago. I have copied over all the files I need from the Windows.old file already. It's big file (~55GB). Would it hurt anything if I go ahead and delete it?

    My thoughts on Win7

    I think you have a very unfortunate situation. I haven't had a single gripe with my Win 7 after turning off UAC. I like the new OS just fine =)

    Is the temperature of my CPU ok?

    These temps appear normal for stock cooling. Of course, every computer will show a different temperature because there are SO many variables to consider (ambient temperature, airflow in case, temperature of all computer parts, type and amount of thermal paste applied, etc., etc...) so your...

    Prince of Persia Trailer.

    I like the movie, too. I was very impressed. I thought it was just going to be another cheesey game-to-movie adaptation, but it was actually an entertaining and fun movie.
