  1. Thanks. I didn't think so and I felt stupid asking, but better safe than sorry. Thanks again.
  2. This may not be in the right forum..... I bought a SATA HD (WD3200AAKS) and an Antec MX-1 enclosure to use for back-ups of data. Will I need to load SATA drivers in order for XP Home to recognize and format the external drive? I plan on connecting it via USB to an old Dell PC with only PATA drives, (mobo based on 850 chipset; NO sata drivers came with it).
  3. Can someone please tell me what the difference is between the English USA and English Extreme USA versions? I have scanned several pages of this thread but don't see an explanation. I really didn't want to read all 12 pages of this thread.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. I ran process monitor, but I wasn't sure how to read & use the info it gave me. Ayway, I started playing around with various settings under Tools / Internet Options and the problem disappeared. Stupidly, I didn't test after each change I made, so I'm not quit sure which one did the trick. The bottom line is....problem resolved. Thank you all for your input.
  5. I didn't have any other browser installed, so I installed FF. I've never used any other browser and never tried FF when I read about the memory leaks, since I only have 512 megs of RDRAM - you read that right. I'm using a 5 year old Dell machine that uses Rambus memory. During the installation of FF I elected not copy over anything (i.e. bookmarks, etc.) from IE. Result: No problem access the MSFN home page with FF. But I'd still like to figure out why I'm having the issue with IE.
  6. No joy. I was able to access those sites linked at the URL you provided. This is getting very frusting! Any other thoughts? Anyone?
  7. But I'm not trying to download any file when I get this. All I'm doing is typing "www.msfn.org" in the IE address bar. I get the same dialog box if I click on the RSS feed links I use on my Google home page. But if I type "www.msfn.org/board" I can access the main forum index page without any such problem. I even put msfn.org in the Trusted Sites in IE's Internet Options /Security tab
  8. I can't figure this out. Nothing I've done helps. cache cleared cookies deleted Windows firewall: OFF (disbled from install) NIS2007 firewall turned off I have no problems with forum URL, but I can not access the home page Oh yeah, using IE 6
  9. When I try to access the msfn home page to check the latest news, I cannot access the URL. This behavior started about a week ago. Instead I get a 'File Download - Security Warning' dialog box asking: Do you want to save this file? Name: msfn Type: unknown file type, 17.7 KB From: www.msfn.org SAVE CANCEL I haven't change any of my firewall settings lately (I'm using Norton Internet Security 2007). In fact I have the same issue when I temporarily turn off the firewall. I have no problem accessing the forums, as I am using the same PC right now. Anybody else having this problem? Any ideas?
  10. Thank you, all, for your thoughts. I'm sorry I haven't had the opportunity to respond before this. I thought I might save a few dollars in getting CS 2 and save some hassels (as some have reported with CS 3). But I guess I might as well just go for it and get CS 3.
  11. I have been using Photoshop CS (a.k.a. v.8.0) on a company issued laptop and now want to buy my own license (full version, not upgrade) for my home PC. So I was going to get CS 2 but then CS3 came out. (I do have Elements 3.0 on my home PC and now find it totally inadequite. Does Elements qualify me to purchase an Upgrade?). Anyway, can anyone here substantiate the complaints and issues about CS3 found here? Am I better off purchasing a copy of CS2 and skipping CS3? Your experiences and insights would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
  12. First, I'd like to say thank you for such a detailed explanation. That's a lot to ponder and i'm way too tired to contemplate at the moment; going to sleep now. I'll re-read your post tomorrow to make sure I follow it all.
  13. Can I install it on a machine running XP Home, to test an unattended install of XP Home? The system requirements mentioned on the MS site refer to XP Pro; no mention of XP Home, whichleads me to believe the answer is 'No'.
  14. Please explain, by example if you can, what that means; how such independant sensitivity would benifit working in photoshop.
  15. I'm greatly confused with respect to the effect of the dpi settings of the mouse's software and it's effect on precision movement. Like I said, I'm not a gamer and have no experience to draw on, though I'll use some gamming refernces vs. photoshop references). Perhaps you can spell it out for me. Does higher dpi of mouse = greater precision, accuracy; or does higher dpi of mouse = lower precision, accuracy? Is this correct? higher dpi setting of mouse (i.e. 2000 dpi on the G7) = faster, less precise movement of cusor (i.e. turning around quickly in FPS game); hence, less accurate movement (i.e. moving a duplicate layer exactly 4 pixels for certain effects If the above is correct then a mouse with a maximum of 800 dpi (like the MX Revolution) would be good for detailed work in photoshop; and the lower dpi settings of the mouse would provide precise, accuarte snipper targeting.
