  1. Right now we are loading AVG 8.x on machines that are not quite built to run this program (too slow). What is a good free antivirus that would run well on something like 1.0ghz 256mb (or something that is 6 years old)
  2. thanks for sharing that back with us mike. i personally have never used any covers for cd's or game's but a friend of mine say they are a life saver. also to anyone else that reads this there is a service that guarantees their work although i have never used this before i have herd that they are really good a "fixing" scratched cdroms and games including wii games. ebay - cd cleaning service
  3. glad the problem was fixed. i also herd about this too... lucky you
  4. i would pick up the game then... Portal and TF2 were really good games, Portal will stump your mind, and TF2 gives you a new shooter to play if your burnt out on the current ones or just want to do something different. I really enjoyed both games alot..
  5. http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDet...roduct_id=60820 I play on console.... i LOVED Portal that is a really good game. And if you play on PC and want a different FPS try Team Fortress i give it a 10/10 for the price! btw i think that is the price you listed on steam?
  6. just a quick run down, have you tried reinstalling that version of firefox, what about in safe mode w/ networking, viruses (maybe?). what about opening another tab in IE7 does it do the same thing?
  7. Device Fetch Devices Exposed (you could do some good graphics with that name ) Driver Fetch Driver Direct just throwing theses out there, will be looking forward to this growing.
  8. sorry took a bit of time to get back. what i did was make a timer so that it calculated everything without a button but here is what i did. Public Class Form1 Dim intNum1 As Integer Dim intNum2 As Integer Dim intNum3 As Integer and so on... and so on... Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) If TextBox1.Text = "" Then TextBox1.Text = "0" If TextBox2.Text = "" Then TextBox2.Text = "0" If TextBox3.Text = "" Then TextBox3.Text = "0" If TextBox4.Text = "" Then TextBox4.Text = "0" and so on... and so on... intNum7 = TextBox1.Text intNum8 = TextBox2.Text intNum9 = TextBox3.Text intNum10 = TextBox4.Text and so on.... and so on... (reason for that is if you deleted the number 0 out of the textbox before you typed in it the app would crash ) TextBox33.Text = intNum1 + intNum2 + intNum3 + intNum4 + intNum5 + intNum6 + intnum25 + intnum26 + intnum27 + intnum28 + intnum29 + intnum30 TextBox34.Text = intNum7 + intNum8 + intNum9 + intNum10 + intNum11 + intNum12 + intNum13 + intNum14 + intNum15 + intNum16 + intNum17 + intNum18 + intNum19 + intNum20 + intNum21 + intNum22 + intNum23 + intNum24 and that last code was a part of the math that i needed in the app so just ignore that, that is only for ref to someone that needs help in how it works . hope someone eventually finds this helpful r3incarnat0r and gunsmokingman thank you both for your help on this issue !
  9. very new with the 2008 vb lol... but lets say i have textbox1 textbox2 and textbox3. I type in 2 into textbox1 and 13 into textbox2, and i want it to add them together and post them in textbox3 as 15. How do you do this? Im getting alot of mixed results on google lol
  10. thanks for the reply, im currently on a xp sp3 machine but we require a very very small app here at work and decided to power up the vb6 engine to see if it would still work haha. will update my system/software to a newer environment that is more supported. thank you. lol i had too look twice and see how you knew that, but it has been a long 10+ hour work day. thank you again.
  11. each time i try and launch VB6 i get this error.
  12. contacted the customer and told them the situation and we were able to get the My Documents folder (which that was basically what they were most concerned about), then we formatted and reloaded and copied over the My Documents folder for a sorta fast fix. cluberti, submix8c, GrofLuigi, thank you for the help on this topic
  13. Found what i needed locally in town. 3.5mm Male - RCA Female HDMI Male - DVI Male iamtheky, thanks for the help and research online
  14. We have 4 ps3's and no tvs. What we need to do is hook up the ps3's to 4 lcd computer monitors and also need sound. The monitors have built in speakers (and we have standard desktop speakers) and DVI / VGA inputs... moneys not a option (and we dont have tv's here so thats not an option). We have a best buy, office depot, super walmart etc. in town. what do we need lol? im stuck at work and no idea right off hand.
  15. im currently running a hard drive scan to see if i can find any bad sectors that needs to be repaired >.< lol i think i might be SOL like u said....
  16. I had a customer come in today with a ton of viruses on her computer. She asked "Please i dont want to loose any information" so i told her that was no problem etc. etc. So i took the hard drive out, hooked it up to another machine as a secondary hard drive and ran a few virus scanners such as Malwarebytes and Spybot. It removed around 500+ viruses and spyware. So i put the hard drive back in the machine and it blue screens each time i power the computer on. I though wow this isnt good lol.... so i poped in the XP Home cd and attempted a windows repair (pressing R on the last screen instead of esc to install from fresh) and it loaded the files up and right before it hit the part where it restarts to the Windows GUI 39mins part, it blue screens again with this error. REGISTRY_ERROR 0x00000051 (0x000000004,0x00000001,0xE11187E8,0x003D8CE0) And now im stuck lol... how to i get this machine back up and running without loosing any information?
  17. i guess i could make a private video on youtube then post it on a forum and see how many views it gets?
  18. say if i was to post a youtube video on this forum somewhere, and 10 people watched it from here, would that count as views on the YouTube site as well?
  19. yes, it came with the other computer and i transferred it over. Edit: Took the card out and it worked fine. I dont know why i didnt think about taking the card out, thank you go6o_kara for the solution and others for the help
  20. na, it happens when the computer past the part in the bios where it detects the hardware and seems to go to boot to the hardware (cd-rom or hdd) .
  21. i would place my bet on either ram or processor overheating.
  22. had a customer with a bad motherboard, i replaced it with a new socket 478 mb. she wanted to do a fresh install so i booted to xp disk, deleted partition, and continued the process and got the error "Unable to partition hard drive" so i though maybe swap hard drives with another one and see if it works with installing windows on it, and i would just ask the customer to buy a new hard drive if it does work. Well i installed the new hdd and went to power on the computer. The bios detects the hard drive and the cd-rom, but i went to "F9" to select boot option and got the error "Missing User-ROM?" . Figured ok i'll pop the hard drive back out. Same thing. I unplugged the hard drive, cd-rom, and cleared the bios via removing the battery, same error each time. Everything worked good until i changed the hard drives out. This is about a 4 year old machine. What i have tried: Installing a new hard drive afterwards, unplugging the cd-rom, changing cd's i was using, swapping ram a few times, clearing the bios via removing the battery.
  23. That sparks a few ideas i will share with a fellow worker and see what we come up with.... we might can work around the permissions thing ^^btw thx
