  1. Does anyone have any ideas how to remove this hack? Quite frankly I'm just tired of it and want my computer to go back to normal. Thanks.
  2. modernize ie 6?

    What happened to the google sign in page? I tried deleting temp files, cookies and history. Nothing worked.
  3. Gpu for 250w psu?

    thanks for that info! The stuff about the 2 gb of ram was confusing, some said it works fine with 2, some said 2 slows it down, others said it wouldnt work at all. Thats why when i ordered the ram a few months ago, i just got 1 to be safe. So heres my current plan: - pentium 4 3.2ghz - new 400w psu, most likely will get in a few months - new agp graphics card, unsure what to get but still researching. Another thing is that my grandparents are going to be getting rid of their old 2009 dell inspiron, its either 2008 or 2009. Anyway, when they get rid of that, they’re going to be giving me their old system. Which means that i might be able to take the psu and gpu out of that, and upgrade mine! Seems kind of stupid, but my old dell holds alot of emotional value, im pretty motivated to refurbish it.
  4. IE 8 in 2018?

    well never mind, looks like i dont have tls 1.1 or 1.2. I guess I only have AES
  5. modernize ie 6?

    So now that I am back to using ie6, does anyone have any suggestions for the old browser? BTW I am using google chrome frame. Its awesome!
  6. IE 8 in 2018?

    So now I'm back to using ie6, and everything about the ms update problems have been solved. Although I notice that after all the posready updates have been installed, the browser, (along with ie8) will take hours to finish checking for updates, so I only installed the ie updates, which is really all that's important to me anyway. Also about the tls 1.1 and 1.2, so I noticed that after uninstalling ie8, that I can no longer check the tls 1.1 and 1.2 boxes in advanced options, but they both are still functioning, I deleted the keys in the registry that would fix this but no luck. Is this because of ie6 I'm guessing?
  7. Gpu for 250w psu?

    Since i have a dell dimension 8200, im not completely sure if its compatible with 2 gb. Anyway i just upgraded the ram a few months ago. And i have a single core cpu socket 478 if that helps with the cpu problem, all i can find is a pentium d. Would that even be worth upgrading? On top of that my computer uses rdram, which is more expensive and rare compared to any other types
  8. Gpu for 250w psu?

    I will be upgrading my psu, but in the meantime, any other suggestions?
  9. Gpu for 250w psu?

    Forgot to mention i only had an agp slot! Also one other thing this card cannot be over 35$ And im also using a dell dimension 8200 if that helps. Mind as well add some other things about my computer: - 1gb ram - 160 gb hdd Hopefully that helps.
  10. Gpu for 250w psu?

    So at this point, people are probably tired of helping me out, but ive been looking into a new gpu. Ive been doing some research on these for a few months, have found some decent ones, but need some recommendations. So there are some limitations, 250w psu, pentium 4, and windows xp. I currently have the geforce 3 ti 200, which is 16 years old. Some needs for this gpu is that it can atleast play 360p or 480p smoothly online. My current gpu cant play 360 or 480p at all on sites. However it plays fine offline, in wmp that is. Another thing, my current gpu cant play over 720p at all online or offline. Anyone have any suggestions? Also please dont say upgrade your psu because im not spending the time to do that, thanks. some gpu options i have in mind: -geforce 6200 -ati radion 9600 - geforce fx 5200 ultra (cant find any of these on ebay though)
  11. IE 8 in 2018?

    Reinstalling xp now, thanks
  12. IE 8 in 2018?

    Actually I was doing research for hours last night about it. Its also not the desktop, ie and firefox are the only programs I've noticed so far that have a weird bold italic font. My guess is that system restore somehow deleted some font files. For example, even on msn, Microsoft website, and the about:tabs page, The Font looks like this. Sorry I wasn't specific enough in the last post, if it were the desktop that could easily be fixed.
  13. IE 8 in 2018?

    Sorry i have to keep asking for help but after doing the system restore, the font has changed on my computer, ie and firefox, how do i fix this?
  14. IE 8 in 2018?

    Ran Ccleaner and another registry cleaner. And yes I use the administrator account, its the only account on the computer at the moment. System restore has also been disabled, thanks for the heads up. Looks like I found out system restore really is that bad the hard way. UPDATE: It worked! thank you so much! never doing a system restore again!
  15. IE 8 in 2018?

    And now i have another problem, error 2203 when i try to install certain things. This also caused some of my updates not to install. Anyone know anything about this problem?
