  1. there is no way to do a low level format of a hdd other than taking a magnet to the drive, and that is definitlly not recommended, you could use the hdd manufacturer format/setup disk, if they supply one... for instance, WD supplies data lifegaurd which can be cd booted and then used to format the drive. but it sounds like formating isnt your issue, i would definitly try boooggy's suggestion though, you might have a corrupt ram modules... it would also be interesting to see if perhaps the problem is that the proc or one of the bridges is getting overheated, make sure you have proper cooling and ventilation
  2. personally i use PGP Desktop from www.pgpi.com, and i like it. not only does it adhere to the DoD standards, but you can use it for almost all your security needs... PGP does drives, files, floppies, whatever you want, and it can do it auto... its free and open source as well, although, if you want PGP Disk, you do have to pay(though im not sure its possible anymore NAI was doing something to it back in 2001...)
  3. well, if your c: and d: drives are on different physical drives, remove c: and see what happens... also is your d: where the MBR is stored, if it is, its possible winxp altered your boot.ini, autorun.bat, winboot files, so you could look around in sysedit and see whats up... else, dont know, dont run win98 anymore
  4. you cannot stop FrontPage from creating _vti_cnf, _vti_txt, _vti_log, _vti_src, _vti_pvt, ect files... the reason being is that these folders are part of and needed by FrontPage Server Extensions. The only way to get rid of them is to delete them every time you create a new web (dont delete if you are using FPSE else your ent app wont work)... same with IIS... alt you could just use another WYSIWYG editor like Dreamweaver...
  5. what is this in relation to, its just a simple reg entry, nothing special really... where did you find it, and what are you trying to do???
  6. can you give us more info first... is it a local printer, or a network printer? what type of printer is it, eg: epson, hp... how have you connected to you printer, eg: USB, parelell... you do have the most recent drivers? can it print a test page? is the problem appearing only with one app?
  7. well, thats very strange, have you tried installing it on a completly different computer, it might be a mobo problem... also, its easy to overlook this, but have you done a Full NTFS format of the drive your installing to?
  8. you could, and this is a strange answer to a strange question, just use the arrow keys to nav up and down... still, there is a reason that windows allows you to type in 's' 'e' 't' 'e' it works a lot quicker...
  9. well, i dont know the specific reason its not working, windows can be persnicity on networks, but you could try with terminal services, see if that works...
  10. As of the most current build, yes it is a known bug in WinLonghorn... I guess you'll just have to wait till they hotfix it, or release the public beta...
  11. The generic way of doing it is via the GP, but you could set the users as part of the 'user' group, this, by default removes those permissions... then all you would have to do is give them more rights via groups, or user management in the GP. There are specific settings in the GP, but you need to search for them, and its slightly a pain to configure to specific machines, nonetheless you may edit the GP by either logging into the domain controller of a network with domain admin privs, or locally, by typing in gpedit.msc in the run menu providing you are running winxp with admin privs.
  12. Ne'r the less, you should be able to view the access permissions to the share visually via the security properties of that folder... unless you have some really wierd system for allowing access to shares... Ussually group membership is how its done, but how exactly do you have the permissions mitigated to users, via groups, or do you manually add them to the share? there are different ways for both, and they both require at least basic vb skills, perferably c++... do a search for user enumeration on shares or something on google, you'll most likely pull up something...
  13. hmm, whilst im not an expert at Win2k3 server, it should be installed automatically, else it is available on either the install cd or via the microsoft website for win2k3 server... search around for it...
  14. Hmm, im not sure about it not being able to conenct to domains, depends on if they based it on xp home or pro... still, you are correct, whilst the terminal services network is pretty much only applicable to domain based computers, or at least those connected to a Win2k3 or Win2k server..., web client network is applicable to non-domain based workstations, but i've never actually seen anyone bother to hook up an active directory and/or vpn to use it outside of a organisational network...
  15. are you sure that your bios is set to boot from the hard disk? sometimes it gets switched... also, to reinstall windows, my recomendation is to delete the C:\Windows directory, and the C:\Program Files directory, that should free up some space and wont delete any personal files...
  16. interesting, it happens on one of my computers too... don't know quite what causes it, more research is required... *delves head back into the dusty dark bowls on winxp* [edit] i think it might be caused by the .NET framework not being installed, it updates the ms script host... so that might be part of the problem, do you have it installed on your comp?
  17. well, that looks good, but if you want to use a script based approach, i finally got mine to work! Add the reg keys to your registry: REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\NetMapHere] @="Map Network Drive Here" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\NetMapHere\command] @="WScript.exe C:\\Windows\\System32\\MakeNewNetDrive.vbs "%L"" Place the MakeNewNetworkDrive.VBS file into your C:\Windows\System32 dir, and there you go! MakeNewNetDrive.vbs
  18. pass the name of the remote computer through to the batch file useing %1 at the end of the reg key, and then in the batch file: net use [driveletter] %1
  19. well, i've got the script to work, i just cannot get the registry to send it the UNC path, this requires more investigation... if you can work it out, heres the .REG file im using and attached is the script... REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\NetMapHere] @="Map Network Drive Here" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\NetMapHere\command] @="C:\\Windows\\System32\\MakeNewNetDrive.vbs "%L"" MakeNewNetDrive.vbs
  20. im working on a script for it... because the problem is, what drive is free... so you need to ask the user... thus, you need a message box which are not available in batch files...
  21. well, i dont know the exact reg keys you would add, and im too lazy to analyze the 'open command prompt here' code... however, you're welcome to do it, the string you would want as a command would be "net.exe" use \\computername\sharename\ [\code]
  22. make sure that the proper drivers for the burner are installed, you might need to manually install them... also, there might be an update out there pertinent to your problem, check out windows update...
  23. hmm, well, yes that it is true that msoft will be able to choose what software will be installed, but thats already the case, anyways heres a kb article that might help, else, there are hundereds more on google... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875351
  24. unless im mistaken, every user on a windows system has read/write access to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive by default, i change my registry settings all the time in this key at school, and im only a user there... have you tried actually changing the key in user mode? also, are you sure its the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive you want and not the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive?, HKEY_CURRENT_USER only deals with the local user, and it is supplied with the profile, whereas the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key is specific to the machine and never leaves... if it is the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive you want, then you will only have to change it once because it gets saved with the roaming profile on the server...
  25. You could use LogonStudio by stardock... http://www.stardock.com/products/logonstudio/
