  1. malwarebytes get rid of it .. i think every vista laptop i worked on in the last 2 months has got that just do a full system scaN with it.. and it will have to reboot to get it off there good luck
  2. the only way to make a upgrade disc of xp not check previous version is to mod the setupp.ini file and thats not legal thur microsoft or msfn hope this answers your question
  3. google peid program it should help with the switches you stated above plus others and the msn.exe has to be extracted once more use winrar or 7zip to extract to a sub folder and then pick out the windows live.msi
  4. i know what your saying.. been there before.. but i never had any trouble just installing the new ones over the old ones i got a ati board also and i never have any problems doing it either .. and i play onlines all the time but you might have to delete the nldrv folder in your windows folder.. to get rid of them for good.. thats where windows looks for the drivers in a nlite install
  5. i have had a couple pc's were the south chipset went bad and it only locked the pc up when i hooked a device to it that i tranfered large files like hooking usb flash drives and external harddrives... most cases it done it when i first plugged the device in and if it didnt it would later while i was transfering files.. both were nf4 chips.. 939 socket asus and dfi boards hope it helps
  6. i've heard that cleaning out your prefetch folder fixes that... windows/prefetch
  7. i have installed a vlited vista ultimate on a 1.3 celeron socket370 512mb memory and it booted no slower than my dualcore... but it runs slow as a snail so i couldnt think of it on a pII... of course i have seen pII run a bit quicker than a pIII celeron.. for basic tasks
  8. i use w2k8 for gaming and i love it compared to all other os's i use... only reason is that in w2k8 alt-tab is almost instant and the game play is much smoother than vista... meaning it doesn't get laggy after couple hours of online game play, plus it boots much quicker
  9. you can intergrate ie7 with nlite as a hot fix.. but you cant remove anything before you intergrate as for the dx9 .. get the new updated june dx9 file and unpack it with winrar or 7 zip and use this switch in the nlite addon ...DXSETUP.exe /Silent but you should always check the nlite section of this forum.. alot of great info in there too..
  10. I right clicked and save target as.. and it downloaded fine looks real nice
  11. I like the media centers on the windows products like vista ultimate and media center xp 2004-05 but i am using this product as of now. its open source and it supports all the big tv tuners.. i truly like it... mediaportal hope this helps
  12. i know exactly what you mean... i dislike the program menu also and i dont like the classic view of the start also i went back to xp cause it takes me longer to get a simple task done in vista, cause of the personal menu setup and tring to find a different folders, other than the personal download folder during a download. i found my self making 11 or 12 different shortcuts to program folders and and document folders. maybe some it will be fixed in the performance fixes in sp1.. i hope anyway i have already got to the point of liking vista even know its a memory hog.. but my computer rate 5.4 on it but the menu really gets on my nerves
  13. i had the same problem with vista doing that... but it turned up being the crappy nvidia graphic drivers... on about 11 different systems after the first install and then it was raid drivers on 3 of the the intel boards i put in... finally got got some updated drivers a month later and was able to sell the rigs but i know your dealing with a different os so i wish you luck.... cause anything could cause that problem , mb , memory , psu... i even had a dvd burn trying to hang at shutdown and cause the weird problem good luck
  14. i try to only buy really good stuff thanks to the reveiws on most websites, it make things a bit more easier to buy i usually dont have much problems with memory or hard drives i bought some asus barebone cases last year (mb , case) wont do that again everybody used to bring me there asus graphics cards after they would stop working..like the 6800gt's and 6800ultras you can flash them and they work for a couple more months of course i was flashing the gt to a ultra...lol it got so bad with the 6800 series that newegg would replace them with xfx brand ah... i hate computers ps. and cars
  15. yeah we test all products that people say is bad.. alot of times the problem is that people think they know how the adjust memory timings and cpu thru clocking software that comes packaged with the product.. like asus and msi do but those numbers above are rough and true... but i buy stuff in volume packs like 20-50 mother boards together... but atleast i can say i never got a bad cpu and i can buy 60 sticks of corsair value memory and never get a bad one but i buy some highend memory and get two bad sticks in a row
  16. the asus is 1 out 10 are bad... dfi is 1 out 40 or so... abit is 1 out 30 but it is usually something like sound or enet goes out so dont really count this since most gamers add there own sound and enet cards biostar micro boards are usually 1 out of 60 or more foxconn 1 out 40 jetway 1 out 40 ecs 1 out 30 pc chips 1 out 30 evga 1 out 50 intel 1 out 80 gigabyte 1 out 40 epox 1 out 40 asrock 1 out 30 msi 1 out 20.. and i think all of them lost there onboard sound after awhile aopen 1 out 40 luck has it, i deal with newegg.com so life is good.. they replace it fast and sweet
  17. we started last year just using only dfi and abit and biostar with very few come backs the biostar board are the one that have the intergrated video and the the other two is what we use for gaming rigs. the abit over clock more but the dfi is more stable for a standard gamer but i will never buy asus boards or msi psu's again got two bad msi psu's in a row but the bad parts are from 7 different stores ,we do public and ebay sells 1200 boards sold per quarter of year in each store, sold one store last year oh, i got two 6 year old asus graphics cards that have done very well over the years and i got one test card that is a asus ti 4200 i got no luck with asus but i know some people that love there stuff
  18. i know people that love there asus stuff and had good luck with it also ... but my self i have changed 36 asus motherboards last couple years and 12 graphics cards and still got 3 boards that asus had repaired and said there good but wont boot at all... and msi boards are right under asus in my book... 3 bad dvd drives, 2 bad psu's ,9 boards ,6 bad graphics cards and i never had a msi board that had the intergrated sound last longer than a year so i am a big dfi fan, weather it be intel or amd
  19. i call it a flash drive cuz that be what the market tell us they are..lol
  20. if you wan to buy some upgrades it will be fine like another 512mb ram and a good video card most pc's that i tried vista on used around 460-490 mb in memory
  21. i was playing around wit the new home server beta a while back and the first thing i noticed was that it has the vista setup... and the server 2003 running gear after install that might help you try the process if you really want to do hope it helps
  22. i installed the 165 opteron in a friends pc and its a big step above the 3200 venice he had before... he loves it for playing his online games and stuff.... i intalled it in a dfi dagf board which loves it with cheap 2gb dual channel memory
