  1. Hi. I registered years ago. Though I havnt posted anything until now because I thought I had nothing to add and also I found the forum a bit unfriendly and threatening. Hopefully I can help people out or atleast add input somewhere.
  2. There is no #7 on the list. Also if you mean Vista, as far as I know it runs like crap on pretty much anything less than that unless it's something very fast and with tons of memory.
  3. I wouldnt bother with any of Microsoft's other editions of Windows 7 unless I had a faster computer. I'm not upgrading until they pull the plug on support for Windows XP. Otherwise it just seems like a massive waste of time to me.
  4. All I know is what works for me. Here are some simple ways you can speed up your computer. 1. If you use an OEM machine, uninstall the massive worthless bloatware they have a tendency of installing. 2. Install all important Windows updates. 3. Defrag your PC at shutdown. If you dont know how to do this, it's a google search away. 4. Disable services you dont use at all or ones that dont do anything, such as the defragment services. If you dont use wireless disable the wireless service. Just dont disable anything until you know what it does. The services applet can be found holding the windows key and hit "R" and typing in "services.msc" double click them and if you feel safe disable one click the drop down box and select "disable" 5. using the run menu open up msconfig. In start up, check off boxes of things you dont want starting up. 5. Dont use Internet Explorer since it's poorly programmed and runs very slow no matter what you do. I suggest Firefox, it's a much faster browser and more secure. 6. Make sure you have more than enough memory for your Windows OS. Windows 7 needs atleast 1 GB, Windows XP needs atleast 512 mb. Windows vista atleast 2gb and upwords. Not sure if this helps anyone. Though I know it helps me.
  5. A very simple way of doing this is put this in the head of your HTML file <style> body { text-align: center; } </style> It should align all the elements on the page. This should help you if all you're looking for is to learn the basics.
  6. Currently dual booting Windows XP pro and Ubunto 11.10.
  7. Windows 7 Starter was alright. Though I downgraded to Windows XP because it was too bloated and it lacked simple features. I like how Windows 7 is more stable and gives me more options for network diagnostics, but otherwise it's a step backwards in terms of Windows.
  8. I always use Windows updates. It saves me a lot of trouble and headache.
