  1. Alright thanks, I don't know of any other firewalls and most people seem to use Comodo anyways.
  2. No popups now, weird. I cleaned out the temp folder on here and no problems yet.. everything seems back to normal. I think I might try out Commodo Firewall that you guys have posted up here, it seems to be pretty decent and should help tighten security rather than using the Vista built in firewall.
  3. This is not a license subscription or anything, it is a corporate version apparently, I forgot where it said it though. I didn't have to enter any keys. I already deleted everything that I could, I found traces of limewire in there and deleted those instantly.
  4. I've never had any of those problems for nearly 3 years.. so I really don't know, but I'm going to delete the temp folder now. It says some files can't be deleted because they are being used by another program.. weird.
  5. Actually Symantec works fine, it's Norton Antivirus that I don't want. This is very low profile and seems to work great in finding things, either way. I went looking for the file, and it isn't there, I guess it was deleted. So is it safe to clear everything in that temp folder at that path?
  6. My computer Says that Symantec found a Spybot Worm thing named W32.Spybot.Worm - rBot.exe one month ago.. Symantec on my other computer found it too, it came from limewire.exe or something, i haven't used limewire in a million years.. so it must be from some old hard drive I had around. Here is some pictures of what I am talking about: Any help is appreciated, I am pretty scared as I have a lot of important passwords and things that I do on my PC.. really seeking urgent help, thank you all. Sorry If I leave out information, I am really stressed out right now and don't really know what to do, if you need any more info just ask me for it and I'll provide.
  7. I know nothing about either of those cards, but I would be inclined to say that if the card is newer, then it might do you better. I just know that if it's a ''PCI'' Graphics card then it is old, but yeah try and see what results you get.
  8. Not much of an upgrade, runs CoD with X4 AA better though, and the defaulted settings were all set to max opposed to the 8600, FPS increase in Guild Wars is 0, 8600 performs as good as an 8800, but Guild Wars is nearly a 3 year old game now and even the old 7 series of Nvidia cards would dominate that game, so yeah. Gonna test more games later and see what I come up with, but in Call of Duty 4 I get better performance for sure. Card Idles at about 60-65C, under load it gets 70C as far as I've seen. 8600 would idle at 50C, under load it got 60C, but that is only expected as the cards are much different in respects. Being worth it, not really, probably gonna use the ''Step-Up'' program to trade it in for the 512MB 8800GT, cause this card has a huge cooler that takes up too much room, and 512 > 320. ___ Update: Runs crysis with all settings on ''High'' and the Shader Quality on Medium and doesn't lag much, this is all without X4 AA, starts lagging with high quality Shaders so I'm not even gonna try any AA.
  9. Where do I go to change fan speeds for things like video cards or system fans? I heard of people doing it but I have no idea how to. Also on my 8600 GT I used to be able to right click the desktop and go ''Properties > Settings > Advanced 8600 GT tab > Advanced settings on that, and I could monitor the cards temperature, change AA settings from 2X 4X 8X etc and all the other good things, now I can't do that on my 8800, it makes me go to some craptastic Control Panel thing where I can't do anything, it says you can ''Change Settings'' in it (And I'm in advanced view) but I can't do specific things, like I said it's craptastic. The 8600 Also had that panel, but I didn't use it, just used the method I mentioned above, so how do I get that back?
  10. 8600 GT is an amazing card, runs most games on max settings without any problems at all, exempting Crysis and a few others. Guess I just wanted more power and stepping up to any 8800 model is undoubtedly going to be more power. And about selling it; I know that I won't get very much for it, but my brothers don't have an SLI motherboard so I can't give it to them so they can SLI it with theirs. So It's basically just going to collect dust if I don't get rid of it, at best I'd just find a new use for it later.
  11. It uses a 6 pin, and the box comes with a little converter so if you don't have a 6 pin it's no problem. If this card suits me well then I'll sell off my 8600 GT, you only live once!
  12. New question! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817371004 Can this power supply power this card: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx...N82E16814130082 I realize that card is getting ''Outdated'' and the 8800GT is ''Better'' now, but if this card sucks when I get it then I'll send it back and get a different one, it's not much of a problem.
  13. Well this is a Logitech Gaming Headset to be more precise, so technically it is a computer part, but yeah I test my luck with mouses, and my keyboard I already knew what it was like, so it's ok to order it again online.
  14. Yeah well for a stock heatsink it was better than most, but not the best for sure. Apart from that I can't get it to sit snug and tight into its native motherboard, we put my old computer back together (with some crappier parts, gave some away) and yeah, just need a crappy power supply for it. Probably have one lying around. So far the only things I've ordered off the online stores are my case, my mouse, my microphone, and a few other random things, but if I plan to buy any bigger parts anymore I will order them, very cheap online. Should probably just start a new random hardware talk thread or something if there isn't one, now we're just talking lol.
  15. Yeah I shop online too always, but wanted to go to a store for this part because it was urgent, it couldn't wait. Newegg seems to have some of the best prices I have found, and sometimes they have good deals like free shipping, discounted items, or rebates. And I always buy the parts separately and stuff because you can find any variety you want, though I don't know where my old heatsink came from, it was off a computer that I had back in 2005, it was made of pure copper but it didn't have very good features or design over all I guess, just cant keep up with todays needs.
