  1. Fixes for beta products should come from their originators Contact Microsoft. You'll eventually learn that beta + Microsoft = devastating hell :huh:
  2. I've never used SAS but I hate Windows Defender. I was told by a former Digital Doctors tech that SAS can remove a few things that none of the other stuff that we used could remove. He gave it two thumbs up, and I trust his judgment, so I'd say what the hell... give it a shot.
  3. I have had several Gigabyte motherboards (among other brands) that always POSTed with the message "Check System Health!". It turns out it means nothing! I've never noticed a single issue on any of them.
  4. Damnit, and here I was installing update 5 all week. Stupid Sun, constantly patching Java. I have to keep removing 40 versions of Java to install the new one (thanks to JavaRa this is now easier) because modern malware often gets in through Java exploits when all the IE holes are closed or you're using Firefox. Yeah, Firefox isn't safe at all if you have Java. Did you hear about the Flash exploit that works in IE and Firefox using the same .swf? It appeared in some ads rotated by major, major websites (the main one I read about was USA Today).
  5. Oh god damnit, I needed this tool today and searched everywhere for it and forgot it was right here at Lunarsoft. I knew I'd seen it somewhere, I had just forgotten its name.
  6. People who use canned distributions (Debian/Ubuntu, RedHat/Fedora, and so on) are left until a lot longer than patch Tuesday as it takes quite a while between distro releases, and that's just in reference to everyday packages. This is the kernel, which isn't a lot of fun to work with as an end-user, especially if you had to go through the trouble of recompiling a canned distro's kernel to get something working. Now you have to start over and/or wait until your canned distro comes out with a new release or easy-to-implement patch. Remember, it's not just nerds using Linux... everyday people

    One tool

    Spybot Search & Destroy. (For a second tool I guess I would want Autoruns.)
  8. If you're tech-savvy (or brave) you can use Linux and ddrescue to make an exact clone of your current drive to the new drive. I recommend that you stop using that computer altogether until you have both drives in your possession. The new drive will need to be exactly the same size as (or larger than) your current drive (in sectors/LBA). You can read this article I wrote which shows you how everything works: https://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Data_Recovery It's not very well-written or end-user friendly (yet) but it gets the point across. Don't forget to specify a log file parameter
  9. Open Source does not mean free as in beer. You are able to sell GPL'd software.
  10. I haven't watched the video (will when I get home) but the comments to the article are quite surprising: not only are they not retarded comments (like found on YouTube and most sites) but most of them have a point (many had quite a few points, such as CBC bias). Anything you get repaired has sectors of the industry like this. A few companies suck and a few companies don't.
  11. Although I have a utility called Dial-a-fix that helps with these kinds of issues, it probably won't solve this one. I suggest starting at the Office 2003 Solution Center (which is quite good) : http://support.microsoft.com/ph/2488 Specifically, this section: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304498 That article is a bit much, but we can walk you through any steps that you don't understand. If you have any questions or comments about your Office issue, make a NEW posting in the appropriate section of the forums (probably one of these: http://lunarsoft.net/forum/index.php?showforum=14)
  12. I fully misunderstood this to mean that 9999 million people turn it off. Never mind. :cool:
  13. Care to cite your sources on this or do you just always work from a fully-engaged shotgun of hyperbole? Correct. I'm not expecting users to do anything with them except send them. The memory dumps that CCleaner cleans are crash dump logs from blue screens of death, not AOL Instant Messenger or some such. Blue screens of death, like kernel panics, need to be fixed immediately or data/computer loss occurs. If you don't send the reports and/or just delete them, your problem never gets solved. Since end-users don't know what "memory dumps" are and probably won't even notice that CCleane
  14. Just to throw my two cents in, I've absolutely never ever been able to get a Linksys wireless product to work in Windows Millennium. Ever. I've tried. A lot.
