  1. Never heard MMC for Win98. Must b the program you are trying. I would recommend you go for SmartDefrag from iobit.com. It runs silently in the background and starts automatically if your computer is idle for few minutes. Just install, configure, and forget about defragmenting your HDDs. -- Best Regards, DreamsCentral Twitter: @DreamsCentral Signed: Sunday, October 18, 2009, 5:39:53 PM IST
  2. Hi Vinifera, Your logic is not wrong at all. The prefetch is just a one of the many gimmicks that MS shows off to make it seem the best thing. You must how noticed the accelerators in IE8 (http://bit.ly/5QtpG). How many of us use them? And are they really accelerators? For example, the email accelerator just takes you to your email provider - but still ppl think that IE8 is gr8. Your email client is more faster than those accelerators. Same logic with prefetch: Showing off something that is not really useful. Logically thinking, it is an added process to further slow down the functioning of machines with lower memory. Another similar process is the Settings Transfer Wizard. It never worked for me. Neither did the Windows default Backup in System Tools. Software Biz also needs to show off as with anything. Anything claiming to offer more - sells more. Microsoft is not the same as it used to be. With Allen cornered and Gates surrounded with stupid advisors, they are ruining a hard built company (The complete story of MS minus its negatives: http://bit.ly/rmj47). I was surprised to see that IE is not their own product nor was Basic. They did work on Basic but IE, they literally stole it from a third party vendor. Guess, m going off-topic. Keep me posted... would like to hear more on MS issues that are growing day by day. -- Best Regards, DreamsCentral Twitter: @DreamsCentral Signed: Sunday, October 18, 2009, 11:35:27 AM IST
  3. This is a typical issue. I guess we should wait for experts to interfere. -- Best Regards, DreamSkape Twitter: @DreamsCentral http://dreams-central.com/testimonials.htm Signed: Sunday, October 11, 2009, 8:40:03 PM IST
  4. Hi, As per your figure, everything seems fine. Just check and see if the Broadcom Network Adaptor is enabled in the Laptop you are trying to connect. In case you wish to configure this again, select "Setup a Home office/Biz Network" in Network Connections then select Next and Finish. A new Wizard will appear that will guide you setup a new connection. Still, I guess there might be a problem with your Broadcom Adaptor. Please let me know if it helped.

  5. Thanks a lot. I will check this out and get back to you. -- Best Regards, DreamSkape Signed: Tuesday, September 15, 2009, 5:32:28 PM IST
  6. @ekasol: Does that answers my question or the above one? -- Best Regards, DreamSkape Signed: Monday, September 14, 2009, 11:58:14 AM IST
  7. Would like to know if there is anyway to display my own logo upon startup w/o having to reinstall XP again... Just finished with reinstallation and networking... so don't wish to spend anymore time again on installing using the above method. Thanks! -- Best Regards, DreamSkape Signed: Thursday, September 10, 2009, 10:30:09 PM IST
  8. Hi All, I use a HP notebook that has both WLAN card and a switch that I suppose employs LED signals when on, to connect to wireless networks in range. The HP notebook runs on Windows XP SP2... This one is set with a wired broadband connection. I also use a wireless USB broadband when roaming. Occasionally, I have to bring in my office's TVS laptop to home (contains XP as well). I cannot install the USB broadband on this one due to user permissions. The only way is to plug in the wired broadband into this one if I need to access Internet. So far so good... The problem arises when I need Internet access on both computers. Though I can use the USB on my fixed system, I still wish to know if both laptops can be connected through this LED Wireless on HP computer. I tried to create one using the Wireless Network Wizard but it won't boot saying some file is missing. I had to log in to DOS and restore my system! Any ideas here? Thanks! -- Best Regards, Arun Kumar M. Signed: Friday, September 04, 2009, 8:17:52 PM IST
  9. Hi, As far as I can go back - to the times when I was working on DOS based machines, it should be FAT only and NOT FAT32. MS DOS could support only upto 16 bit so FAT32 fails if you run MS Windows 3 and sometimes Win 95 too. You can easily use FAT32 for any Windows OS after 98. BTW, why would you require this information? Just curious...
  10. I dont think you need to download any third party. After I recommended COMODO in the second post, I did some research and set my PC so that it automatically goes straight to the desktop without any login screen. The command is "control userpasswords2". You can use it to disable other accounts too, but it is not advisable to disable admin account (the first one from top). I also wrote a step by step guide to the process that can be found at http://www.brighthub.com/computing/windows.../42774.aspx?p=2 Hope this is what you are looking for. -- Best Regards, Arun Kumar M.

  11. I guess something went wrong when you installed MOZY. I used on my XP based computer with only 512 RAM - for more than three months without any problems. Later, I switched to Idrive as the latter is more faster than MOZY while restoring files. Check it out. -- Best Regards, Arun Kumar M. Signed: Monday, August 24, 2009, 9:44:38 PM IST
  12. I used SP3 for few days - experienced some good problems - removed it. The SP3 creates conflicts with some processes of OFFICE 2007, especially OUTLOOK 2007. I was not comfortable using it so finally removed it and came back to SP2. Also, one of the issues with SP3 is that you won't find some MS progams in ADD/REMOVE if you had installed them before installing SP3, example IE versions above 6. So if you wish to reinstall IE 8, for example, you will have to remove SP3 before it appears in the ADD/REMOVE for uninstallation... Pretty time consuming... Eventually, I felt that its better to stick with SP2 rather than going on to SP3 to keep on facing regular problems... You may find some good comments at http://www.reviewsaurus.com/tips-tricks/wi...stall-problems/ Also, check out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950717 . You can understand how many problems it can create. -- Best Regards, Arun Kumar M. Signed: Sunday, August 16, 2009, 2:02:39 AM IST
  13. Check out the DOS based bootable FDISK program, a bit outdated but I still use it. It wont accept NTFS... so the best method is to delete all the partitions, create primary and secondary partiions again in FAT32 system, and activate primary partition where you intend to install your OS. It will also format your HDD. Once done, you can convert the partitions to NTFS as you load Windows, where it asks for format... a quick format with NTFS will be enough. Later you can create and format the logical partitions using the Disk Management. -- Best Regards, Arun Kumar M. Signed: Sunday, July 05, 2009, 9:33:27 PM IST
  14. Got the resolution. I just went to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat 7.0\PDFMaker and saw two folders saying Mail and OFFICE. Assuming this can give me relief, I created a system restore point and then deleted both directories. They contained some WORDPDFMAKER.DLL files and similar files that gave me the clue. Sorry for wasting your time. And if it helps, send me a message... Enjoy the weekend! -- Best Regards, DreamSkape Signed: Friday, July 03, 2009, 6:41:37 PM IST
  15. Hi, Ever since I installed Adobe Acrobat, my computer slowed down. I was cleaning and removing junk and registry assuming they are problems. However, last night I opened the task manager to see how memory is used when I use different programs. The major portion of memory was allotted to Outlook and F-Secure. Studying the usage further, I saw that the memory usage of Outlook increased when I am performing any action on it. Furthermore, I saw that Acrobat also consumes considerable memory. And when I opened more programs, the memory usage of F-secure increased. This was made more clear as I kept open the task manager while opening and closing programs. The deductions: Outlook already has several unwanted add-ons and the Adobe options are making it use more memory. Also, F-secure's usage of memory depends on the number of programs opened at a time. I don't understand the logic behind F-secure's memory usage. Anyways, I removed most of the optional components from OFFICE and thereby OUTLOOK using the Change Option in Add/Remove Programs. So that decreased the memory consumption to some extent. However, I guess if I am able to remove the Adobe menu from it, it will decrease considerably as Acrobat is also a good RAM occupier. Now I need to remove the Adobe Menu that automatically came in to OUTLOOK and several other applications. Is it possible to remove the ADOBE option without having to uninstall the Adobe Acrobat. I need Acrobat 7 to convert files to PDF format and for the Adobe printer, otherwise I would have used older versions that don't force other applications to include the Adobe option. I removed it from IE using "Manage Add-Ons" but I could not find a way to remove it from OUTLOOK. BTW, I installed the Acrobat using the Adobe CS2 CD, if that makes any difference and it is OFFICE PRO. Any workaround will also help a lot because I need to keep my OUTLOOK running. I also hate the spam filter button that came in via F-Secure. Thanks! -- Best Regards, Arun Kumar M. Signed: Friday, July 03, 2009, 6:18:30 PM IST
