  1. Have you tired to ping the router from the w9x machines, and have you tried to ping the vista machine from the w9x and vice versa? Vista's firewall may be blocking everything. Also make sure that vista is set to private network not public.
  2. Please bear with me as i a total newbie when it comes to servers. I have recently been given a old server that has WinNT4 Server. I want to know if it can be made to share my internet conection. I know I have to pop in another NIC so that there is one for the incoming Internet connection, and one for my LAN. It's current internal LAN is set to 10.x.x.x Can I simply configure a router to the same 10.x.x.x and have the router do all the work? Will it work this way? Or do I have to let the server handle it? Any help would be great Thankyou for your time.
  3. Have you tried liteshell? it's the smallest shell i have ever seen. I've used it on win9x machine with less than 32mb and it works great! http://www.labyrinth.net.au/~mosses/rob/liteshell.html check it out, you might like it. Here is a quick description from the author "LiteShell is a replacement shell for Windows. LiteShell is a minimalist's shell - no screen space is occupied by the shell. When you right-click on the desktop or press a hotkey, a menu provides access to your programs, documents, tasks and anything else you wish. LiteShell provides support for "hotkeys" - key combinations that, when pressed, can perform actions such as running programs. Any system capable of running Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 or XP is able to run LiteShell. LiteShell requires less than 500kb of disk space and will run on systems with 4mb RAM (and possibly even less)."
  4. http://www.free-av.com/en/tools/11/avira_n...s_personal.html Has anyone ever tried it? I stumbled upon it while looking for a decent free anti virus. According to the docs http://www.free-av.com/documents/products/...dos_pers_en.pdf It says that it can be used in a dos box in win 98/me. I wanted some feedback on it if anyone has tried it. Thanks
  5. Have you tired removing the hard drive,putting it another pc, formating, transfer sys (sys a: x:) , then copying the windows setup files to it? x: should be the letter that the drive is assigned on the other pc.
  6. You could use the following program http://www.blueorbsoft.com/scandefrag/ Here is a screen shot http://www.blueorbsoft.com/ScanDefrag/ScanDefrag1.jpg The readme is here http://www.blueorbsoft.com/scandefrag/Readme.html it can run both scan disk then defrag before the windows shell load, that way you can avoid defrag restarting all the time. It also has more agressive modes that prevent other programs from loading on boot, this way defrag will not have to restart. Once the defrag is done, the pc will reboot in a normal mode. The readme explains it better than I have.
  7. For NOD32 there is a option to turn it off, go to NOD32 system tools, then into NOD32 system start up. Click on setup, you should see a option to turn off the splash screen. As for outlook express a quick google search will help you there.
  8. Thankyou for your help, while this a quick of getting there it's not quite what i was looking for. this solution takes 2 steps, I was looking for a direct way of accessing it.
  9. Is there a way to quickly get to the Vista Network Map like a shortcut?
  10. Greetings all I was hoping on some insight. Here is the little annoyance. When I open the "My Pictures" folder every now and then I get a pop-up ad in IE. I have run Spybot S&D, it did find some things and removed them, I ran it twice more, as well as Windows Defender. After the first time nothing else shows up but the popup still appear only when i open "My Pictures". I notice that ther is a bit of a wait when i open the Pictures foler. Has anyone heard of this before? Also can anyone recommend a program that show me what is going on when i open that folder, I want to find out what is being run when i open te folder either program or script. Also hijack this shows me nothing supicous Any help would be great
