  1. Anyone know the whereabouats of MSNWar? He's not been heard from in a month.
  2. Control panel\ folder options\ view tab\ apply to all folders button.
  3. I'm on dialup. Plus ca change... So am I. Thanks for all suggestions.
  4. I copied the wmaccess.inf from windows\service pack files\I386. Then I got the same message, but for wmpcoem.inf. Did the same for that file. Now, when I go to add\rem windows components, I don't get the component tree. It goes directly to "setup is inspecting your configuration and installing the components you selected". And I still can't access the list.
  5. When I try to open the windows components tab in add\remove, I get the following error message: Setup was unable to open information file wmaccess.inf. Contact your system headministrator. The specific error code is 0xe0000003 at line 0. Same thing happens when I try the setup CD. I'm running SP2 RC1.
  6. Snow globe, with heavy precipitation predicted. This is an MS Release date.
  7. Do a KB or Google search for the error number. My guess? Switching progfiles to D:\ is the culprit. Default for windows update is C:\Program Files\Windows Update. Maybe put that directory back whence it came?
  8. Try http://www.virtualplastic.net/. If it can be done, they'll know how.
  9. The perfect gift for the frat rat with everything. ;-)
  10. How did the imsomniac agnostic dyslexic spend his time? He lay awake all night pondering the existence of Dog.
  11. Right-click a blank spot on the taskbar and select properties. Then: Start menu tab \ customize button \ advanced tab. That should provide you all the above options. Also, search Microsoft.com for XP power toys and download TweakUI.
  12. An association with the practice of 'cloaking' has cost WhenU its links from major search engines Google and Yahoo. Adware company loses its links about time.
  13. http://www.allsci.com/parallel.html ...and Case-Western physicist style: Keeping Your Keg Cool Sans Ice from the technology-you-can-use dept. http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/05/14/129217 "Case Western Reserve University is reporting that first year physics graduate student Adam Hunnell has come up with the idea for a [3]Keg Wrap, a thermoelectric sheet that will be able to maintain a full keg at 32-35F by running off of wall current or even a car's cigarette lighter. The funding for this project is coming from the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance, which has provided Mr. Hunnell with a $20,000 grant. Serious stuff - I'd rather see this than another few million dumped into quantum computing." http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=04/05/14/129217 http://www.case.edu/news/2004/4-04/keg.htm
  14. There's a KB article that deals with this behavior. Don't remember the number, also check your outlook express and internet explorer settings. MSKB: http://support.microsoft.com/search/
  15. Task manager\ processes tab\ explorer.exe\ end process\ new task\ run\ explorer.exe. Or log off\on.
  16. Desktop icon, shortcut icon or the one embedded in the executable?
  17. or in their cases, rolling on the floor drunk.
  18. That would include this forum's founders.
  19. Kinda like a traffic accident: EVERYBODY slows down to watch.
