  1. My computer was infected last year with this specific virus because I ran peer to peer application without an antivirus, I learned my lesson My personal analysis with this virus is: it infects ALL executables (exe, com, dll, ocx, etc) on ALL drives after initial infection, it downloads its main program from total-secure2009.com What I did was: deleted ALL executables on ALL drives (I was left with only image files (jpg, bmp, etc) docs (doc, xls, mdb, pub), and mp3s :angrym:) install from uninfected CD installer and placed this on my HOSTS file "127.0.0.1 total-secure2009.com", this prevented accidental infection again in which I did, really, this time it tried to download from total-secure2009.com but now can't download its main prog from there
  2. "only when programs try to make changes" for me, I'm surprised most turned it off... Microsoft should never have put this on to begin with
  3. Me too, I also miss the old explorer and the classic search on Win7/Vista It is more productive working with the old search and explorer.
  4. me too, starcraft 2 and it seems that i have been waiting for eternity
  5. You cant... I have been infected two times for the past years, first was when I was infected through peer to peer, it was a tough virus because it infected every .exe and .com file in every partition or drive in my computer. All I was left was my jpgs and mp3s + full format and install, no antivirus there. The second time was just last March, the virus installed itself on other drive (in my case it was drive E:) and it made detection more difficult because I just scan system drive. Because of the above-mentioned, today, I do not go online without firewall, activeX control (spywarebalster) and antivirus...
  6. I have been using Limewire ever since...
  7. try here: MSFN's Unattended Windows Installation it specifies the folder you have to use during installation so that your programs will be copied to the new installations
  8. Welcome wizzy2k5 :) to MSFN, have a good time here!
  9. edit WallPaperDir from this registry location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
  10. I did not use any third party program to integrate service pack 2 to Windows 2003. I just used the /integrate switch and it worked perfectly for me.
  11. You can also add *.dll, *.ocx, *.vbs, *.shs and *.chm

    netmon and nlite

    Go to Control Panel => Add or Remove Programs => Add/Remove Windows Components, under the components Management and Monitoring Tools, click Details and there it is, check the box Network Monitoring Tools then click OK to install.
  13. Thunderbird all the way, I am using the portable one and I placed it on a removable media (Flash Drive).
  14. I have been using 2003 since it came out up to this time and it is much better than XP in most ways except, finding an antivirus for it. Most antivirus that we're comfortable with does not install on Server OS. There are ways around this though and in my opinion, that is the "not better" part of using 2003 as desktop.
  15. Just ENABLE video and sound hardware acceleration, DirectX's DirectDraw, Direct3D, etc. and your games are good to go. Include sound hardware acceleration, Run =>dxdiag go to Display and Sound tabs, enable all accelerations. I'm using Win2003 Enterprise SP2 and I am playing Civilization III & IV, Command and Conquer, Starcraft, Sims, Grand Theft Auto, Windows Solitaire, Winmine, etc. Nintendo emulator ZSNES, etc... etc.
  16. In the Control Panel, go to Windows Firewall then just click ON then OK. ...or Start => Run => services.msc, go to the process Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) configure Startup Type =>Automatic and Start the process. I am not sure but I think you should have at least Service Pack 1 installed for the Win Firewall to work, but it would be best if you install SP2.
  17. First, windows 2003 has its own built in firewall. Second, if you don't want the built in firewall, I would suggest comodo.
  18. Me too Common sense, I think, is most important element I second... oops, third that. 2003 fw, hardware router and common sense. Never had a problem with it.
  19. What is the CPU speed and how much memory do you have?
