  1. Your mixing up to terms MB/s and Mb/s they are diffrerent by a factor of 8. 1.5 MB/s is shown as the speed ur downloading , that is equal to 12Mb/s which is 12% of your 100Mb/s connection to your rotuer (NOT to your ISP), which is then connected to your ISP There will then always be other bits of trafic flowing which will effect the speed a bit, but there is nothing strange happening here
  2. Can i just check something, when it slows down your connection, is uTorrent downloading something and what speeds does it go at?
  3. Dude whats your problem? nLite is perfectly safe, if you do not like just do not use, don't post your fudge here. BTW, learn to speak English. Cheers Just what he said, if that really did happen to you then it wasn't from nlite.
  4. Well i've found the information http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa373208.aspx going to have a go at implementing it, if anyone has any better ideas, then id love to hear them
  5. No thats not the problem, i never said it was doing it when media players were running, i just want to be able to achieve that feature and i used them as examples so people would know what i meant. I'm looking for how these types of applications prevent shutdown/standby etc so that i can recreate that effect.
  6. Thanks, but as i tried to explain in the post "This has to be done without changing power plans" I'm sure everyone knows the implementation of this in media plays and download managers, it requires no changing of power settings, it simply prevents it from happening, I'm guessing either by pretending the computer is being used or intercepting the signals.
  7. Is there a built in app/command that stops a computer automatically shutting down after a period of time, i'm talking about the feature you have in most media plays so that when your watching something and don't interact with the computer it doesn't shut down, also get it in download programs. This has to be done without changing power plans. So any ideas? Thanks
  8. Never used this to submit a file, however when a user had a problem i found this site as it had a detailed breakdown of everything generated by the virus that had infected their system, including, files, registry keys, registered services, ports opened etc http://www.threatexpert.com/submit.aspx or http://www.threatexpert.com/submissionapplet.aspx (SITE: http://www.threatexpert.com/) Here is an example output http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?ui...3a-204688078f8e
  9. I use Handbreak, which i find very effective http://handbrake.fr/
  10. Could do as described http://www.msfn.org/board/Bat-file-help-t115393.html Modify Yzöwl's code to check for CD-ROMS @Echo off&Setlocal enableextensions For /f %%# In ('Mountvol^|Findstr [d-z]:\\') Do ( Fsutil fsinfo drivetype %%#|Find "CD-ROM Drive">Nul&&( If Exist %%#KNOWNFILE Set "CDROM=%%~d#")) If defined CDROM Echo:%%CDROM%%=%CDROM%
  11. Would very much love this, especially as now can't do it on x86 with SP1 (well without disabling driver signature enforcement on every boot)
  12. Yeah you can do that, or you can use GimageX or WIMMASTER etc to mount it, as vlite has already installed the wimfilter and contains the file needed from WAIK, all you need to do is dump GimageX into the vlite programs folder and run as admin. (the file needed by GimageX is wimgapi.dll and is the same version that you get from downloading the 1GB WAIK (i've checked so i dont need to download 1GB next time its updated for a 320KB dll), so you can make your own folder with GimageX/WIMMaster and wimgapi.dll) Also yes just noticed a reference to yet another Wim tool, "Wim mounter" although ain't tried it myself, however i do like GimageX Edit: Didn't realise you have imagex, however wondering why you don't mount it in read/write mode, and then make the changes (imagex.exe /mountrw /?)
  13. Firstly vista comes with windows mail, not outlook express. i see no reason why outlook won't work fine without it as its completely different software. As for IE, well there are bound to be some really badly coded apps out there that demand IE, but its unlikely it will cause a problem, also you won't be able to use the IE tab extension to Firefox if you come across a old, fussy and crap website requiring IE to work, but that's very unlikely, i would consider keeping it if this computer is used in a work or academic environment, they seam to cling onto strange IE related things, we had to do work using a macroware demo written by a rather past it lecturer for IE only, although most people now make sure they work on Firefox.
  14. Yeah this would be very nice to have a clean way of doing this, maybe with a script at the end to enable aero? Btw is there a way of editing .wim files without downloading the whole 1 Gig WAIK?
  15. Hi, Just realised what you ment, dont know why you can't use the site, but google still has a cache of it Here is another link to it aswell (found by searching for the MD5 Hash) http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?ui...eb-7fed27a95a4d Id suggest saving a copy of this website to your desktop.
  16. Hi, can you run an administrator cmd.exe (type cmd into the start menu then right click and do run as admin), then type sc query and scroll back up the list till you find the window dns service then run sc delete "SERVICE_NAME" (rather than the display name). if you scroll back and can find the service on the list as its been written over then run sc query > C:\services.txt, then open you c drive and run services.txt, (you can delete it after (note it will have admin rights, dont worry just acept UAC promt)), that should remove it the service properly. Second thought, you might have to run net stop "SERVICE_NAME" to stop the service befor you delete it, cant remeber though) After than, simply go to program files directory and delete the complete Outlook express folder as its all not sposed to be there. Ignore IEFRAM.dll thats supposed to be there. Just find the link in the post and the go through deleting everything it says has been created as you would with any normal file. (clean out recycling bin to save the space after)
  17. Yeah, you need to go through the steps of using the list on threatexpert to delete the registry entries and files that were created, also check your firewall settings to get rid of the service that is running, you might have to stop it first by using task manager, going to process view, then from the view -> select coloum menu, scroll down to command line and tick that box, then you should be able to sort the running processes by where they are executing from, (if you can't see C:\program files\Outlook Express\scvhost.exe in the list, make sure view all processes are running and go through the UAC dialogue. You can then right click on the process and click on end process. This will then allow you to disable it. I would then advise running an anti-root kit tool aswell as spyware, as the initial problem seams to be this scvhost process which has then silently been downloading and installing other crap on your system which might be hiding. I would remove everything you can then run hijack this again to see if things have re-appeared in the list. If your unsure on how to do anything just say and i or someone else will give you more detailed help.
  18. And after a quick google for Window Net Dns (MyDNS) you get this http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?ui...a1-246acf70b258 it was from your keygen, and firstly before you do anythign else, at the bottom of the page * The following port was open in the system: Port Protocol Process 1039 UDP svchost.exe (%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\svchost.exe) * The following Internet Connection was established: Server Name Server Port Connect as User Connection Password cpk.easy78.cn 80 (null) (null) I would close that up NOW
  19. I may be wong, but didn't you say your running Vista, yet you have. O23 - Service: Window Net Dns (MyDNS) - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\svchost.exe Firstly i've never seen svchost.exe running from anywhere other than system folder, and secondly, Outlook Express isn't on Vista, 3rdly why would a DNS service run from outlook express? If it was me, thats where i would be looking. I'm thinking it was designed for XP to hide itself and by calling it Window NET DNS it would be allowed by through firewalls by people, now its on vista its trying to access a .dll and vista is stopping it.
  20. Did a simple test of copying rasphone.pbk then deleting the VPN connection from network connections and deleting the phonebook. Then confirmed i couldn't connect Then restored the phone book and the VPN connection re-appeared automatically under network connections although it lacked the username and password that i had saved for it previously, it was fully functional under rasdial where the username and password was specified which is what is required. So see no reason why the method i described above wouldn't work correctly. I assume by your Super Moderator status you have no problems writing batch scripts, however if you want a suggestion i will be happy to help.
  21. Hi, Well a little look into is shows that under vista the VPN data is stored under C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\rasphone.pbk (Program data if its shared i guess) and XP C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\ (May also be in per user basis, dont use xp anymore so dont know). I dont have time to try it atm, but this is my suggestion: Include with your script rasphone.pbk, which would be created when you set up a vpn connection on the base machine Then in your script, Set working directory to a variable name so you can return to it Move to the directory where the phonebook is stored using variable names based on the user profile (use cd /d LOCATION, as /d will change drive if needed) (%APPDATA% will get you as far as Roaming under vista so %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\, to see available variables type SET under cmd.exe) test that the phone book is there, if it is, rename it to rasphone.pbk.bk, then xcopy from the script location (as saved in variable) the new phone book, to the new place, then connect when ready, disconnect, and overwrite the phone book with your settings in with the original file if is there, else simply delete the phone book. [Editing the phonebook seamed to work without any problems] Let me know how it goes
  22. Um... where does it fail? What does it tell you all i use is rasdial "University Of York VPN" "%USER%" * University Of York VPN is the exact name of my VPN connection which is already set up and working, and USER is pre-set and then it prompts me for a password. it failed for me everytime at username if i didn't include one as it seams if you save a password into the VPN connection, rasdial can't access those details when run from a command. the output i get in command prompt from typing "rasdial "University Of York VPN" "%USER%" *" is: Connecting to University Of York VPN... Verifying username and password... Registering your computer on the network... Successfully connected to University Of York VPN. Command completed successfully. If you tell me more about what your doing and what it tells you i will try and help.
  23. Just incase anyone wanted to do this and finds this in the future, you can use rasdial.exe from command prompt to connect to a VPN network ie rasdial "VPN NETWORK NAME" "Username" * it will then prompt for a password, else you can use "username" "password", this is however less secure,
  24. Installed and worked fine on Vista SP1 vlited Last_Session.ini
