    Don't use it, Don't need it. Seems pointless to get a service pack when the systems runs just perfect without it. Hence the words (SERVICE PACK) to service people having issues. Well I don't have issues.

    If you go back to the days of XP you will see how much turning unused services off really helps. I cut my XP's RAM from around 75 down to 50 or even 35 with the right knowledge on what does what. I have 3gigs of memory now on my win 7 pc, but I don't let the usage go above 30% when Idle. Right now its at 20%. I am strict on RAM usage even if I have plenty I never like wasting it. This is what works for me I do have firewall and Microsoft security essentials for protection, and have disabled Windows Defender. I just go about doing my tips everyday and maintaining my pc, and it ru

    Here is some useful tips, By Using These Tips You Can Save Alot of RAM and Have A Smooth Fast System 1. Turn off Windows Update. You can get the updates you need, but after that it is wise to turn this off. It uses RAM alot and can also give you pointless updates. over 300 can slow a system down (300 being a rough number, I know theres alot of updates just like vista had). They can Also Install Silently without you knowing. 2. Turn off Windows Features you don't Use. Under Programs and Features you'll find this on the left hand side. Turn Off as many of
  4. a mix of music and music vids. Thank god for youtube, I get all my favorites there. Just think about if I had an Ipad, they'd charge me to to just verify my age. I wont go down that road again lol
  5. lmao Yeah, geez she just makes herself look stupid in everything she does
  6. left blink to click, double blink to double click, right blink to right click lol. Only thing im concerned about is watching videos, will the mouse follow where I look and get in the way ?
  7. Oh and by the way, VLC chokes at 720p, it will start to freeze and studder. I learned this from trying it and reading on the web about it. Same video at 720p works perfect on windows media player because it takes advantage of cpu power better. I still use VLC for 480p though Also try Smplayer, its nice and is built on VLC code which both of these are built on the Mplayer code.
  8. As far as a multi-media entertainment system I see no reason why Windows 7 should'nt be the winner. I have had no problems using 7 on my acer apire 5253-bz893. Dont be fooled by these newer computers at your local wal-mart or other stores, You want good performace just check and see how much graphics it has before you buy it. Mine has 256mb, I went to walmart in hopes of finding a laptop with better graphics and was very shocked to see what I found. Newer acer's there only had 128mb, and the newer dells only had 64mb. Other brands were set to not allow you to view the gpu properties too.
  9. I'm sorry but its too late, I decided to reinstall windows 7 and not use sp1 or the new updates. But not to worry I have great protection and I'm running normally again. Thank you for telling me about other people that run sp1 without any problems. When issues came up, I googled sp1 and found places where people had problems, below is from windows 7 forums where people say they have problems. ----- it crashed my laptop,and locked up the hard drive.i tried to reinstall winmo7 but its telling me i need drivers to run the set up.so i gotta go thru all that --------------- Just inst
  10. I have recently tried out Sp1 and It made my comp run almost at 100% cpu usage all the time, it gave me a loading icon by mouse arrow and when shutting down it would take a long time. I could'nt believe how many pointless updates microsoft tried to force on me, 105 total, 30 a day. My pc became so slow it was unbelievable. I have a good fast pc with AMD graphics and dual-core. I tried uninstalling it and it said it was gone but I knew parts of sp1 still remained because my pc ran the same, crappy. Cpu usage was never an issue untill all those pointless updates and sp1 was installed
  11. "COFFEE SAID" I see, Sorry for the confusion. I think was alittle mislead by some of the youtube videos out there showing you can do alot of the same stuff as win 7 on 8. Most be fakes then
  12. I would hate to see that day, im on win 7 now and I can do just about anything I can think of, my wife on the other hand has an ipad 2. And I know some people like it but i just cant get into it. I dont want to pay for things that windows offers for free. Im not really into apps either. I run windows 7 for games, music, videos, just about anything. But when using the ipad it can be very restricting for me to do those things. I have done the work arounds to unlock things but it always comes down to having to pay. In a lighter note I would like windows 8 on a touch device to insure my freedom
  13. I think the problem with windows 8 is that microsoft had success with 7 and they dont know where to go from there. Instead of improving certain areas in win 7 they abandoned that idea and instead took a more easy route to make money. When Vista came out they knew it wasn't ready but knew people would still buy it. They did not care but only wanted money. After that they said, "oh we're so sorry, we'll fix vista and require the right ram and cpu before shipping." Hence, the first pc's with vista had only 1 or 2 gigs of ram which was not very good. Then came windows 7, But they still ke
  14. This is sad, Im a huge 98se fan and if there was a patch or mod out there for multi-core then I'd use it. Of course after fixing that there is another problem. Newer comp are built to support the newer systems of windows. If we want more people to switch then we would have to find a way to port drivers back to 9x. Graphics and all, KernelEX dosen't support driver emulation so we need a driver emulator to fix this problem cause its no use without drivers either. We got the style down good though, I like revolutions pack. It can look and feel like a modern windows without the bloat. Thats good
  15. Oh my, what a nightmare you've got on your hands, I feel bad for you but may I ask some Q's. This may help others to help fix your problem. 1. You have any live cd OS's to which you can run from cd 2. If so maybe run a virus scan from the cd and check your HDD 3. Can you over install 7, which means that if you run the install disk and dont format the drive, windows will ask you if you want to move your files to a folder called windows old. Thus saving everything you worked hard on and restoring th
