    external dvd rw

    Ok, i have an opportunity to purchase an external dvd burner-still in box, never used for 40 bucks (canadian). Made by comstar, 2.0 usb dvd+/-rw double format (+/-), dual layer (8.5gb) dvd-rom 12x max cd-rom 32x max dvd+r 2.4x dvd+r 8x dvd+rw 4x dvd-r 8x dvd-rw 4x cd-r 24x cd-rw 16x 8x what do you think, should i get it? Its not hot, and not faulty.
  2. so it is run and then it automatically gives you the headers explaining them and if they are safe to remove? thats what i am getting out of it.
  3. What exactly does your "HijackThis Converter v0.43 Beta" do?
  4. Tarun what is that program you post with for log cleaning? :w00t:
  5. I bought my computer 4 years ago, and am looking to build one in the next year or two, so am starting to do research on what exactly I need, and what is good. I want to be able to play some higher end games, i do lots of word processing, use publisher, store a lot of music and movies and want to be able to burn them onto disks. I also want to hitch the pc to my tv to watch stuff on it-which i currently cant do. I currently have a web camera and headset, printer, the speaker system, a lower end sound card, and an external harddrive (wd-7200 rpm, 250gb.). I am torn between keeping thi

    PDF Reader

  11. Any suggestions to a simple, freeware antivirus? I need a simple version that wont slow down my computer much. Something that doesnt expire if it exists. And a link would help me too. Thanking you all in advance!

    PDF Reader

    Hello, I am looking for a PDF reader-something that will automatically read a PDF when I click on it. I want the least bloated and most simple download that wont slow down my computer. Any suggestions and a link for a freeware version? I dont need anything fancy, just a simple reader. Thanks!
  13. thats a great question. i only use IE. I will switch to firefox for today and see what happens. Well, I tried virtually everything I could think of. I finally had a buddy come over and he reformated my computer. Got rid of all the junk and it now runs real smooth and fast. Thanks for all the help everyone. :D
  14. Is there such a thing as a self help kind of tutorial to teach people to read their own logs? I would love to learn to read them. Would it be a lot of time to learn? House, work, kids, all kind of bite into the extra computing time. Maybe online courses with support forums? Just some thoughts I was kicking around in my noggin. :D
  15. alright, i downloaded that. problem persists. anymore suggestions on what i can do? :( heres a new hijacklog: Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1 Scan saved at 9:00:36 PM, on 10/2/2005 Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180) Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\brsvc01a.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\brss01a.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\LEXBCES.EXE

  17. My windows is up to date and my video card is the one that came with my computer which i have never updated. I am not sure what else to do. I dont know if this helps or not: here is my belarc advisor printout: Computer Profile Summary Computer Name: XXXXXX (in MSHOME) Profile Date: Sunday, October 02, 2005 4:10:55 PM Advisor Version: 7.0l Windows Logon: XXXXXXXXXXXX Click here for Belarc's System Management products, for large and small companies.

  18. as i was going to another site things froze again and i had to go to standby mode and back to get it working again. Arrrrrghghgh! things seem to be a bit faster though. :D
  19. alrighty! i did what you said and a thing popped up saying it couldnt find 'del'. I removed that word and retyped the rest of the line and up popped an avg window saying a virus was in the file. i deleted it (as it gave me that option). any idea what that thing was? i have to wait awhile to see if that was my problem or just something else. will keep you updated. and thank you for all of your help. :)
  20. Ok, here is the deal. I ran trend micro anti virus-no problem, and avg-no problem, and then symantec found : C:\WINDOWS\tqp.exe. I also reran everything and it all looks clean. Here is my new hijack this log: Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1 Scan saved at 10:38:36 AM, on 10/2/2005 Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180) Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.
  21. Wow that was fast! LOL! I ran all of the anti malware package. Microsoft anti spyware, spywareblaster, spywareguard,avg, spybot, adaware, cwshredder, ccleaner, cleanup!, diskcleaner, diskdefragmenter. everything is up to date, and my windows xp is a legitimate version with sp2 and i always upgrade all of my programs.
  22. Well, I hit the link you gave me and there was a download link. I downloaded it and saved it to disk. I read the instructions, and basically I understood (hopefully correctly) to turn off computer, put disk (floppy) in A drive and then turn computer on. It then "booted" the disk and started running the tests automatically. It ran 6 tests and then started again. The instructions state that if it doesnt find anything the first run through, it wont find anything, and I can either turn computer off or press X to stop test. Since it didnt find anything, I turned the computer off, and here I a
  23. Hello all, How does one go about getting an avatar on a forum site? Is there a freeware site that has them to choose from? And how do they get from a site or my computer to the forum? I am completely in the dark here so a very basic step by step answer would be appreciated. THANK YOU!
  24. Hi Tarun, I ran (after finally figuring it all out ) the windows memory diagnostics a couple of times and it didnt find any problems. Any other suggestions? And is there anything I can remove from my log to make things faster and more efficient? As well (sorry for all the questions), when i start my computer quicktime and Microsoft anti spyware both load, but they arent in my startup list (msconfig thing that i check). Why would that be? Thank you. sorry, I should have read the heading and posted this as: Lordoftheweb HijackThislog - 01. Oh, the link on the
  25. Hello, My computer screen freezes in the middle of applications fairly often. I use zonealarm, avg antivirus, spywareguard, spywareblaster, spybot, ad-aware, and keep them all up to date and run them at least once a week. I also defrag, and use ccleaner and Cleanup! to keep things smooth. I have also cleaned the registry since this started, but it didnt help. I have a Pentium 4, 2000 mhz, 40g hard drive, 250g external hard drive, 768 ram, and the computer has been doing this for about a month or so. The computer is 4 years old. For whatever reason, when i hit the power button manually
