  1. Can anyone explain why I keep getting a "Disk Read Error" every time I turn my computer on after I have turned it off. I keep having to unseat my HD and reseat it. I haven't been able to figure out any other way to fix it.
  2. Service pack 3 was released in April of 2008. The Conficker worm patch was MS08-067, from October 2008. So where is the patch? MS08-067 is a Security Bulletin not a patch.
  3. Was the patch is SP3? http://www.microsoft.com/security/worms/conficker.aspx http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS08-067.mspx I slipstreaped sp3 into my XP install disk.
  4. This tool did the trick. I reformat AT LEAST once a month.
  5. You gotta give me a direct link to the download. Remember I can't access their website? Again I can't see that link. No I'm not attached to this installation of windows. I reformat AT LEAST once a month.
  6. The direct link with the IP did not work. As for the second link I might have this if the website is accurate. = Possibly Infected by Conficker A/B variant
  7. I did everything the PDF file says. Everything works fine. I have tried about 10 different internet connections and ALL of them are working perfectly except on Microsofts website.
  8. I can ping every website i try but microsoft. C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ping google.com Pinging google.com [] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from bytes=32 time=24ms TTL=53 Reply from bytes=32 time=25ms TTL=53 Reply from bytes=32 time=21ms TTL=53 Reply from bytes=32 time=21ms TTL=53 Ping statistics for Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 21ms, Maximum = 25ms, Average = 22ms C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ping microsoft.com Ping request could not find host microsoft.com. Please check the name and try ag ain.
  9. Could you please describe the symptoms? Examples -- Clicked on "Windows Update" and got message/screen "yadayada" - Tried to go to MS-dot-COM and got message/screen "yadayada" Please clarify ( never heard of MS "blocking" an IP )... http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh133/C...SF/sypmtoms.jpg Every microsoft website does that to me. There isn't much else to say.
  10. I've tried FF, IE, and K-meleon. How would I resolve my DNS? XP.
  11. I'm having problems accessing Microsofts website. I have tried everything I can think of to fix this problem. At first I thought I just had a virus on my computer so I reformatted my computer. Then I thought Microsoft may be blocking my IP so I changed my IP. I'm out of ideas. What else could possibly be blocking Microsofts website? Any ideas and thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  12. What are the pros and cons of these video formats (MPG vs AVI vs WMV) vs each other?
  13. Where is the K-lite and media player classic settings info stored? I checked the appdate, registry, program files folder, and ini files that sounded important. Where else could it be?
  14. Does anyone have an updated 7zip Silent Installer?
  15. What is everyones favorite firewall? Zone Alarm used to be my favorite firewall until they added to much crap to it. Now it is just bloatware that slows down your computer. Here is a new poll to replace the old one:
  16. How do you do that? That sounds like fun to try .
  17. Here is some good info if the normal way of show hidden files is not working. http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/03/01/t...ers-in-windows/ Yes I know to go to folder options and look in there. Sometimes you get a virus that messes it up.
  18. Just convince yourself that your external hard disk is inside the PC, and treat it exactly as you would an internal one. The good ol' way is always having one primary and one Extended with 1 or more Logical volumes in it. But since you are going to encrypt a partition, I would create two primaries + the extended, this way you can easily make the second Primary bootable if needed. I would personally suggest to make a greater number of partitions/logical volumes in the extended, a 995 Gb partition is biggish and any operation you may later need to do on it (defragging/imaging/data recovery , etc.) will take AGES on an external (I presume USB) bus. jaclaz Could you explain the difference between all the partition types. If I do two primaries and one extended which one would be best to use as my encrypted partition? I did discover that having a massive partition is a bad idea. Truecrypt crashed when I playing with it cause the HD is so big. It has USB and ESATA. I specifically got this one cause I know ESATA is way faster than USB. Best way to do this is to use disk management gui inside windows. Start > Run > diskmgmt.msc If your HDD already has a single large partition (i.e. store bought USB drive) you will need to first delete all partitions on the drive. (back up any data first) Right click the blank HDD, create a new 5 GB partition (NTFS should be default selection), then repeat the process to create your second partition. That's it. Pretty simple huh. What partition types do recommend I use? Yep it is .
  19. I want to set up Multiple Partitions on my external HD. 2 partitions to be exact. Its a 1 TB HD. I would like one partition to be 5 GB's and the other partition to be the rest of the HD. The 5 GB partition will be private stuff so I wanna use trucrypt to protect it and the other partition will be everything else. Since I use windows it needs to NTFS format. What is the best way to do this? I'm not sure what type of partitions I should make. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. Please go step by step since I have never done this on an external HD before.
  20. I used the VERY extreme method of DBAN and it did the trick. http://www.dban.org/ Is diskpart anything like DBAN. Usually anything you have to do in DOS or with command prompts is the most extreme method possible. Sorry I didn't do that earlier. I don't have the ability to show it anymore since I used DBAN.
  21. It doesn't think a partition exists, so it can't delete anything.
  22. My drive got messed up by truecrypt and now I can't even start over and format it. Any ideas?
