towardme
which free firewall for PC Windows is better? :P
ajavid
bob barker should die.
towardme, windows 7 firewall is excellent
towardme, for vista or earlier, sygate personal firewall
towardme
Might be. But I am looking for XP
ajavid
ok
muddd
towardme, xp's default firewall seems to me to be good enough
ajavid
meh
its crapola
IneptMofo
as long as you have a decent router
you will be fine
muddd
you can change alot of stuff and its functional
towardme
muddd: If I have believed in it I would not have sought other third-party firewallsw
ajavid
its ok
no harm done
check out sygate
I been using it for YEARS
but with windows firewall and a nat router you're firewalled
towardme
ajavid: It is no longer free for a long time
ajavid
every nat is inherently a router
er..
every nat router is inherently a firewall
I need tea.
towardme

Comodo is free and lots of people swear by it
yeah, I would go with Comodo
towardme
wow
ajavid
I should have thought of Comodo earlier
towardme
I saw Zero Knowledge Firewall :)
what a nostalgia
ajavid

freysteinn
Hello. Do you know if it's possible to mirror the display in Windows XP?
And if so, what would I need to do it.
jeffmr
I think you can do that automatically
just connect a vga or whatever cable to your computer
go to display preferences
freysteinn
jeffmr: Just be clear, I don't need a mirror screen with two monitors, I need a vertical mirror of my display on one monitor. :)
jeffmr: That should have been: Just to be clear, ... sorry. :)
jeffmr
I'm not sure about that. What is a vertical mirror on one display?
freysteinn
jeffmr: I want it to look like it's a reflection of a monitor in a mirror.
jeffmr: Flip might be a better word.
ajavid
hi
freysteinn
jeffmr: I know I can rotate the image, but I need to flip it.
jeffmr
I'm not sure about that

I'm trying to figure out win7's solitaire, since it apparently became accessible. How do I use it?
kn100
So I installed WXP on a spare drive, it installed fine, worked fine, and then I formatted one of the partitions on the drives, which somehow destroyed the MBR, and now the disk refuses to boot, and I can't repair the MBR because the recovery console is not there for some reason, what do I do?
ajavid
what happens if you turn off UAC slider to all the way down?
is that bad?
it is less annoying, but does it sompletely turn it off?
PureEvilGeek
ajavid: if your still around. i believe in win7 if you turn UAC all the way down its less annoying but not completely off. there is a way of turning it completely off though. note that if you only have one application that is annoying you through UAC then you can set that app to be excempt from the security
any one ever used a NAS drive that had POE support?

I just accessed the XP recovery console to do this, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 and got a BSOD about a buffer overun. Rebooted, and the console didn't prompt for my installation/password
trying to cd to windows gives me access denied
the bsod happened after I copied the \repair\software folder over, and hit "up" by accident
rewt
sproaty, just start over with the last set of copy commands
conb123
Hiya which in your opinion is better for oc stability testing, prime95 or occt?
rewt
make sure you're booting from the cd though
sproaty
rewt, i'm using a usb recovery console, damn netbook has no CD drive
rewt
ok, then make sure you're booting from usb
sproaty
and I can't get access to windows
yeah, I am
I can get into the recovery console, but it just puts me into c:/ right away
sorry, can't access the WINDOWS folder
sha
hi. i want to install winxp and win7, starting with winxp right now. the partition which i've created for winxp gets recognized as "J:". i can install in this partition, but winxp won't boot (says it misses some files). what can i do for, that winxp recognizes the partition as C:? and, how should i make this win7? when they both need C:, how should i partitioning the drive?
sproaty
reinstalling might be an easier fix, bugger it
sha
yes, sure i want to reinstall it. but, what do i need to do, that winxp "thinks" the partition is C:?
or, is it not failing because it's J:?
sproaty
sorry, I was talking to myself, there :p
sha
ah ok

ElllisD
how do I disable a device from safe mode command prompt?
kronix
ElllisD, no GUI?
Can't you just launch devmgmt.msc from CMD?
ElllisD
as soon as I start safe mode in gui it tries to install a video capture card & freezes before I can even tell it to leave the device uninstalled
rewt
ElllisD, take it out
and then turn on the pc
ElllisD
Freeze when drvinst.exe starts...
is it possible to install the right driver prior to adding the card?
card is way too hot
bad bad bad windows
rewt
yes, some hardware requires that drivers be installed before it's physically connected
what does the installation instructions say?
ElllisD
no instructions- box says win & mac supported that's all- looking up website now
rewt
no piece of paper, or a cd included?
Cpudan80
hola amigos
ElllisD
nope- ebay auction- this might be due to my having added 2 cards at once...
