  1. hi, I found one named TextAloud, which is available online via dit torrent downloader
  2. Hi, All, I would like to know some of the best text-to-speech software which read texts out of webpages or texts. Cound anyone suggest to me any? Thanks
  3. Usually, clicking on the "draw table" button (which is the icon that is a pencil with a line) in Word and release the click and move the mouse, the mouse pointer will change into a pencil. I recently found that after clicking on the "draw table" button, the pencil pointer only remain for less than 2 seconds, then disapears. So I could not even fix the point where I want to draw a line before it actually disapears. Does anyone have the same experience? Could anyone help me out please? Thanks.
  4. @all ---- thanks and, forgive my inaccuracy: Zone Alarm sets pagefile size at each reboot, rather than locking the pagefile size. I've checked the date info of the pagefile and found it matched the time as the win os completed booting up (the above content was posted about 30 minutes ago) I'm now using the tools you (Cluberti) suggested monitoring system activities. I've been wondering how antivirus/spyware software functions and controls system activities but only got the faintest idea. now, sysinternal utilities suggest somewhat how. Also, I've been collecting infomation on process injection and hijacking. (whisper: I want to be a hacker)
  5. thanks for your precious and efforts
  6. @ Cluberti--- Just as you said: it's AV software that did this. After a whole day's trying and searching, the bad guy finally revealed itself: Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite though all Zone Alarm related services are disabled from starting at boot up, it still changed the page file size to system default by dumping extra needed memory into the page file on the very first reboot after its installation, as any antivirus software always does, and lock the pagefiles size. Most uses would not notice this subtle change. I chose "Diagnostic Boot" and "Safe Mode", both of which made the pagefile size intact. Yet I still didn't know which application changed the size. then ghosted my backup os (without any anyvirus software installed), the pagefile size became again manually controllable thanks again for your help and suggestion. Now I'm trying to solve this problem and further suggestions, if any, will be appreciated
  7. @Cluberti: thanks for your consistent help. there're 3 cases: 1> Check "No pagefile": then the system won't create a pagefile 2> set pagefile size manually: 2.1> in Normal and Safe modes, the reg value remains the same 2.2> in Safe mode, the actually pagefile size matches the value set in reg 2.3> in Normal mode, the actually pagefile size matches 1.5 time the ram size I've searched online again and found posts saying that some had this problem before, yet none gave a solution. only your suggestion gives an inspiration. I'll post progress.
  8. thanks for all your help but none worked there must be a ghost in my os
  9. no optimization tools were used. I've searched online for relevant information, but none gives a solution.
  10. Thanks, RMS and Cluberti I've tried "No pagefile" option and set pagefile size via registry both in normal and safe modes, the pagefile size still goes back to 1.5x RAM. I've also checked services and applications listed in Startup panel via msconfig.exe, only mandatory system applications and services are allowed. items of win.ini wer also checked. No antivirus software are allowed to startup when system boots up (ZA, F-secure), all av software services are set to start manually. The registry value at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management Paging Files C:\pagefile.sys 400 460 remains unchanged but the actually page file size is 761m. Weird enough. Why does this happen?
  11. thanks but i've done this carefully it automatically reset the size
  12. recently I was troubled by the automatic change of pagefile size, each time I set pagefile size manually, the system will change it to 1.5 times of the size of the total memory size after reboot. OS spec: Win Xp Pro Sp2 Lenovo any help Thanks
  13. thanks for all your replies indeed unix/linux has an ip mask function that hides ip from a requesting webpage.
  14. say, when you open a webpage, your ip address will show on that webpage. then, how to hide your ip address?
  15. it's well known that Unix/Linux could hide the ip address of a pc by "mask" its ip. but how could win xp manage to hide ip address without using a third-party application. it seems that most such applications will use a proxy scheme, obviously such scheme will slow down surfing speed if the target proxy does not have a broad band to share, is there a more direct way? thanks
  16. @ Rudi1: so glad this helped. have a nice day!
  17. if ghosting fails, hope this might help. 1. try a PM8 for dos and boot from a dvd-rom with pm8 for dos. the reason for this is that: operating system is UNABLE to check HDD geometry if the OS is bootable and running. I mean, if the os could obtain its boot code from the mbr, then it goes without checking HDD geometry. even if it could not, it will noly show you simple, uninformative errors. Run pm8 for dos to check whether the boundaries of your two partitions are overlapped or whether the boundaries of each partitions goes wrong. If I remember correctly, the error code for partition boundary problems is 114. Once this happens, you could not extend any of your partition. If the boundary check returns no error, then go on. 2. Now, check your file system on your HDD, you can't use PQ8 to merge or extend any partition marked with a NON-WIN32 file system, eg, ext3/ext2, swap, as far as my experience could tell. Check this out. 3. your scheme "Delete the second+ extend the first " should probably be carried out thus: delete the second, this will result in an unallocated disk space, better reboot. then run PM8 in dos or xp again, create this unallocated one into a new partition whose file system is the same as the first one, then check whether you have a total unoccupied space enough for your data to hold, this total unoccupied space should be caculated on the whole disk, now merge the new one into the existing one. reboot. make sure you are DELETING (in partition size) A SAMLLER PARTITION AND EXTENDING A LARGER PARTITION TO OVERLAP THE SMALLER ONE, or, you are MERGING A SMALLER PARTITION INTO A BIGGER ONE. else, you operation may fall into error. 4. if all fails. you should remember each partition size in its CHS value, then set manually your partition geometry parameters. in such operations, DON'T CHANGE ANY BOOT RECORD ON ANY OF YOUR PARTITION, RISKING SUCH CHANGES WILL RESULT IN An UNBOOTABLE OS IF THE MAIN MBR IS CHANGED AND FILE ALLOCATION TABLE LOSS ON PARTITIONS. step 4 is the last resort and should be carried out with expertise. if further assistance is need, please let us know. we'll try to help
  18. Gizmo requires free call active user status, so Gizmo was deleted. since it's unwise and stupid to make an 800-** /888-**phone number active user when this number is an automatic service number. I've searched online and found the solution: 1. obtain a recorder 2. in "record control" switch, choose "Mix", stereo or mono would do. tune every source indicator to its maximum volumn. 3. start recording The method is posted in: http://www.skypejournal.com/blog/archives/...l_recording.php and the original words are: Most of the modern sound cards have option to record mix which will capture output signal from wave channel AND input signal from microphone channel. Just select "Stereo Mix" or whatever mix option you have and record with Cooledit or and that's it. Tried it, it works perfectly when levels are all set properly. You might want to turn off mic boost if there is any and raise the level on the "Record" panel and then lower the level on "Volume" panel so there is no microphony / echo ***** works really thanks for all your help
  19. Thanks Nitroshift. Yet, you must have a good sense of Chinese Actually I would like to obtain an english version of PowerGram, since all my softs on PC are english. the official website of PowerGramo seems to have gone dead to http connections. I've tried Gizmo for free calls, but Gizmo has even stricter client restrictions and once you tried a phone number then you can't try for a second time. though it has an integrated Recoder.
  20. 1. I have an Advanced Mp3/WMA recorder, how could I use it or is it able to record Skype voices/sounds ? Should I choose Linein/ Aux/ Microphone in the Record Control switch? it's said that powergramoinstall.exe will do this job, but it's hard to obtain this exectuable. (i've tried) could anyone send me one to chee-chen@163.com ? 2. Where does antivirus database of Kaspersky Antivirus reside? in %systemroot%/common files or somewhere else? Thanks
  21. thanks yet, is there such a clock for win xp?
  22. Recently I've been bothered by switching the clock on the pc between different times: pacific std time, eastern std. time, ... , all of the being time zone in USA. Could Someone introduce to me a round-faced desktop clock that has at least 3 mini-clocks embraced, so that I may set one to show Beijing Std. time, another Pacific Std Time and one Easter Std. Time? Thanks
  23. and now we're enjoying............. So glad that it's realized. Still I would appriciate being told things deeper about Digital Signature
  24. To AlYum: last night I searched the net for digital signature and was guided to MS site After reading the articles there, I'll have to stop right at the verification process. Signature is the destination
