  1. Hi click the start button right click computer on the right pane choose mange. Next choose disk management right click the c drive and choose extend volume. You may have to shrink the E partition first.
  2. Hi I have been looking for a pc txt to phone solution and finally found one Pinger Text Free works great you can receive text msg also http://www.pinger.com/tfw/ and it is free the best part hehe.
  3. Hi yes I am still on version 7.0.1474 . Today for the first time I got a avast popup asking me if I wanted to see my virus count on the last 1200 pages I looked at LOL, so they must be tracking every web site you go to. I find this funny because if your going to track people where they go why tell them about it. Time for a new Antivirus solution I guess.
  4. Hi I am just here to say that the new Avast Antivirus program free or paid for requires you to agree to allow them to collect data from your pc. Of course they say they wont use the data so why do they want access to it. We have all heard this before and your data gets sent to whoever they want.
  5. Hi is there any way that you can disable driver signing for the f6 or load driver button when install a f6 controller driver. In windows 7 the f8 on install gives you a menu to choose to disable signed driver. Thank You John
  6. Hi well older cards get nothing from new drivers to start with. Also on every driver release from ATI or Nvidia they have release notes I suggest reading them if they contain nothing for your card then dont update the 12.6 was really ment to fix problems with the 7000 series. If in reading these release notes there is something for your card but you dont have that problem dont update it example they put out a fix in the driver for people that the game wow crashes, if you play wow and it does not crash why update it. The crash is caused by certain configurations in hardware if you dont have that you dont need the fix. Most people update to the new drivers just to say they have them although they do no good for there cards or make them run worse.
  7. Well I live in Canada so our internet just sucks LOL. I use sympatico as I live in a small town cable has just arrived here but its so poor its not worthwhile. I am on a old account the ultra one it is unlimited downloads you cant get that here anymore but I get 6 meg down and 64k up for 81 $ per month now that sucks LOL. But I remember dialup all to well so it helps to think what if I had dialup.
  8. Hi I dont know if any of you have started to receive these emails from a friend on hotmaIL, The email only has a link in it it may say you have reveived a private message from who ever sent you the email. If you click the link you go to a virus site. I am only mentioning this as 10 or my customers have gotton this in the last week. Most use some crappy password like there dogs name with no cap or numbers. Just for a bit of humor when I tell them they have to change there password its but I like this one and dont want to change it LOL.
  9. Hi I see the one I use not mentioned so I will now hehe, I put it on many customers pc's. StarBurn its free nice interface does all the regular burn stuff iso or what ever. I still use imgburn for iso's though
  10. Hi yes I agree most people should stay away from the auto fix it tools. In just one case a customer was going from a nvidia card to a ati card once you remove the N drivers reboot and run jv16 reg cleaner it finds a lot of nvidia stuff still in there to make sure it does not interfere with the new ati install I remove them so yes there are cases when it is good. But for the general public no. For a pc guy thats in the business it comes in handy. All I think jv16 does is check for dead entries and you dont have to hunt for things to remove so its a little safer hehe and we all know to back up the registry before we play with it.
  11. Hi there is one program I use to clean the registry like if you remove a program it will leave all sorts of junk in there ie norton . JV16 reg cleaner I have used this for over 8 or 9 years you dont have to choose anything and it has never messed up a registry on me.
  12. Hi well lets define friends a friend is someone you can count on that enjoys your company and you do things together. I myself am a loner now as I am old so I have about 2 or 3 friends left that i see but when i was biking I had more friends and the others are just people you know most of them have died now as we lived the hard life hehe. You cant replace a friend you have had for 30 years. This facebook thing I am not involved in nor would I be you never get to really know the person and never do anything together ie fishing camping or what ever and they post everything they do or about themselfs. Just because you know a person that person is not really your friend he would be a acquaintance. I know with the online friends sites ie facebook many people consider this there spot to make new friends and are actally addicted to it. Real friends are hard to find they are trust worthy and would not do anything to harm you, very hard to find these days. If a person is suicidal you quiting facebook would have nothing to do with it. People like that, and I know you always say tomorrow will be better they cant see that they only see there problems or the bad situation they are in and feel there is no way out. I know about this as a few of my friends have done that, its a block they hit and cant get over beleive me I have tried to help them even move them into my house to be with them and give them support but in the end they just cant get over there problems and it happens you cant blame yourself as its a problem they just cant get by and has nothing to do with you. I feel really bad for them but I have also found out there is nothing you can really do when they hit that mode. If you are alone myself I am I have 2 hounds they give me great company and they get you out of the house.
  13. Hi well the hosts file and firewall can take care of any reporting or there are other ways to do this I wont mention them LOL. Once again I am not talking about peoples home pc's as I dont see a home user spending 2500 $ or so for cs 6 as they would have no need for it. All Corel software runs a similar program and there are other programs that report on you as well.. As for win 7 not being compatible I can put a cd in with old games on it like hexen earthworm jim click the exe and the game opens and runs in win 7 64 bit.. Also some people just like to stay with what they have but there is no real diffrence useing xp or win 7 you access things almost the same control panel and other settings. I also realise that not all are the same, to me a new os is great I get to learn it, some people dont want to learn for some reason, as for win 2k or 98 sure its fine if you dont want to play the new games or run new hardware. As for sticking with old stuff I know old guys that wont use the net there still on bbs and dialup LOL but thats there choice as long as your happy thats the main point, and no one should tell you what os to run, use what suits you and your hardware and programs. Well thats all I have to say I bet your all saying tg hes done LOL.
  14. Hi now your being picky LOL. If only part of it is going to work why buy it would you put out $2,599 and have half the programs work but only parts of them no of course not. Remember photoshop is only one part of cs6. Anyway its only a example things change .I would not want to try and setup my 2x vid cards in crossfire on win 2k it was never ment to do that. Now if you say you can your not useing ati drivers and maybe theres a work around but I dont want to play with stuff to make it work I dont have the time.
  15. Hi so what would you do tell all your graphic people they can only use part of the program. Once again I am not talking personal pc's it maybe fine for you at home to use part of a program but if your in business doing graphics it is not acceptable to turn out work thats halfway there when others in business are useing those features. And this is one program there are other programs and things that just wont work well. I am just useing cs6 as a example.
  16. Hi I never found win 2k advanced server really simple but it was fun. And If you are Running Windows XP, 3D features and some GPU-enabled features are not supported, as per the technical specifications of cs 6. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/979969?tstart=0 at least thats what Adobe has to say. And im sure everyone will agree this is a trend and will continue if you want to use the newest software and hardware there is only one choice. I am not saying xp or 2k or win 98 is bad its just a fact. If you are only talking about your home pc's thats fine but I cant see a IT pro trying to setup 100 xp or 2k systems on a network and then try and get a program like cs 6 to work properly.
  17. Hi I never really get attached to an OS well maybe windows 2000 hehe, I never change the desktop picture once I have it setup I never change anything. I run win 7 64 bit I really cant see running the programs I use in win 98 or xp the new cs 6 wont work no gpu acceleration no 3d and adobe says xp is not supported. I use ssd drives like it’s even hard today to get a sata 2 drive there all sata 3, ssd drives yes in xp if you want to constantly play with them to keep them working and no I dont have any ide drives. I remember programming in access on win 98 I would get out of system resourse please reboot again like every 30 min. Removed 98 went to win 2k never reboot. I suppose one of the reasons I use new operating systems is to learn them so I don’t look like a fool servicing them. As for needing a big system to run win 7 64 bit that is false my internet home pc is a amd athlon 64 bit 3400 + socket 754 3 gig ram and I don’t even get the please wait on boot up. My gaming pc has 2 7970 cards a ssd and 2x 600 gig raptors in raid running win 7 64 bit 16 gig ram photoshop loves it. So I don’t really think upgrading an os if you are in the pc business is your choice it’s a must just to keep up. But I think anyone should run the os they like and get the most performance with and also will run what programs you need to use. For me that leaves out win 98 and xp. I am not to sure about win 8 though I am not sure I even want to know how to use it LOL. But again if you dont all new pc's will have windows 8 on them and you wont know how it works. This is why I started in computers its always changing I get bored very easy if its always the same of anything, Computers always somthing new to learn very nice..
  18. Hi well I have seen laptop drives destroyed in 4 months. The ones that do park the heads if you just nudge the table it will park the heads so thats not much of a bump at all. I feel alot of the damage done to laptop hard drives is people walk around with them running doing a task. Its like oh look at this jump up run accross the room to show your Mum or what ever lol. On a train well I have not been on a train in years but 20 years ago I would not use one. But they are alot smoother now and you should have no problems just dont run to the washroom with it running.
  19. Hi well you need to make sure you have room for a good card example a evga 560 sc is a nice card and would do you well price is around 220 $ and the 600 watt psu would run that as long as the psu has at least 24 amps on the 12 volt rail. These new gtx cards are dual slot cards meaning it would cover your pci slot just underneath the card. Also the cards are much bigger today that 560 is 4 inches in hight and 8.25 inches in length. So you first need to choose a card then before you buy make sure you have room to install it. Putting it in a small case with not very good cooling the card will run hot.
  20. Hi give this a try just right click a blank part of the taskbar and choose properties. Click the customize button and choose restore default Icon behaviors at the bottom of the window hope this works lol.
  21. Hi the sticks where corsair flash voyager 16 gig usb 3 running on usb 2 but i tried two other no name 16 gig sticks and it was the same.. This was a customers pc and over the years customers using things like usb powed scannners web cams some people need to run 10 usb things for some reason, and I have always pointed those people to use a powered hub rather than adding usb cards. As you say it could be motherboard but I have seen it on older usb pc's so I always thought why try and run 12 things from a pc motherboard when you can just use the powered hub.
  22. Hi again this happens on a socket 775 p5q turbo asus board it has 12 usb ports. But I do remember that some manufactures ie - hp and others have said in there pc pdf information you will not beable to use all ports at once I will have a look around and find that statment.
  23. Hi well to usb it makes no diffrence if you have a 1000 watt psu usb uses 5 volts. If you really want to test it plug any 16 gig usb stick into one of your front usb ports it wont work they will ony run about a 8 gig. Plugged into the back port you could run one 16 gig stick if you put in 2 you would get the Window's message everytime, the "Hub power exceeded" warning, on any connector. Using a powered hub, everything's fine as it supplys all the power to run the devices.
  24. Hi well Corsair will not guarantee that mixing ram will work. Each of there ram chip's can have up to 8 diffrent kinds of memory chips used they go by the ic number, they say to buy a 2 gig set or 4 gig or what ever. Next your motherboard runs in dual channel mode which is what it is doing with the 2x1 gig sticks, now if you add one stick or ram it will not run in dual channel anymore, your board supports up to 4 gig or ram but unless you are running 64 bit windows it will only see 3 gig of it.
  25. Hi as your pc is older running a large amount of usb off the mother board is not a good thing. You can buy a 7 port usb powered hub for cheap works alot better.
