  1. Depends how he/she got in. It also depends on what kind of software you are running; as far as firewall and what not. If they got in physically, you should have used a stronger password and disabled the guest account. You could also have made your My Documents private. That way, not even an admin can access your stuff. Of course, they could either take ownership or backup and restore your files somewhere else. Best thing you can do is download Microsoft's Private Folder. It's a password protected folder that can't be accessed by any means unless you know the password, IIRC.
  2. The AND'ing only means that the e-mail will be moved when, and only when the stated conditions are met. So if you set up a rule to have e-mail from sent to a specific account, with a specified domain, and with the sender being in the address book, THEN move it to a folder. If you want to have emails sent from a certain domain put in a specific folder, just do what I had posted earlier. If you want to have emails sent from certain users, it's better to create a distribution list. Then in the conditions dialog box, check the very first option, from people or distribution list, and select the list you just created. I personally would rather keep rules simple. A simple AND, THEN thing. So to recap, the AND simply means that if: condition 1 AND 2 AND 3 AND 4 pass, THEN move it to the folder. If one of those conditions do not meet, than the email stays in the inbox. There's nothing wrong with making conditions, it let's you be specific in how you want your emails filed. BTW: You should seperate your rules based on who or what group sends the emails and what folder they will goto. You don't really need to add "on this machine only". That would cause issues IMO.
  3. Here's what you have to do: You don't have to be in safemode to run this. What he means by "gone" is that when you reboot, it will run chkdsk and you can't use it since you wont be in windows. That's all.
  4. BTW, you can also run chkdsk from the recovery console. Pop in your xp cd and go into the recovery console. Enter your admin password and enter the number for the drive that you want to check. Type chkdsk /f /r.
  5. Try running checkdisk set to automatically detect and repair any errors. If that doesn't work, restore should work.
  6. You should also check the event log for any problems with services starting up. Have you been reconfiguring any services?
  7. I had a problem like this. Turned out my firewall was hosed and it would block ip renew requests. When ever I disabled it and let the modem renew it's dhcp lease, it would work again.
  8. Do you have the drive shared? What drive are you trying to access? Are you prompted to enter a username and password? Have you tried connecting to the administrative share?
  9. Try running detect and repair from Outlook.
  10. Ok, go to tools>rules and alerts>new rule>select start from a blank rule>next>scroll down the step 1 box until you see "with specific words in the sender's address" and check it>in the step 2 box click the highlighted phrase "specific words">enter a domain name like @whoever.net and click add>next>check "move it to a specified folder" and then click the highlighted word like in the previous step>next(twice if you don't have any exceptions)>verify that the rules are how you want them and hit finish. You can also check run this rule now... but that's up to you.
  11. You're going to have to remove all non-essential parts from your system and see what the problem is. In you have onboard sound and video, switch to them and pull out the sound and video card. If you have two optical drives and/or harddrives, pull out one of each, leaving the master on. Sounds like some bad hardware is causing setup to get stuck.
  12. Flash drive here, cuz they are oh so fast.
  13. Try turning off simple file sharing. Also, keep in mind that in a workgroup enviroment, the security is handled on a per system basis.
  14. Do you have vista transformation pack installed on your system?
  15. Here ya go zxian: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
  16. I think what rendrag was asking is if the old network adapter is still in the system.
  17. Well I don't know much about circuitry, but I am pretty sure that some that should stay relatively cool and quite, SHOULDN'T be making any noise, nor getting very hot. You should replace it before you fry your laptop.
  18. The hospital where I work at has replaced about 300 mobos on the 270s. Good thing dell extended the warranty till next year.
  19. If you don't know the password, get your hands on a windows 2000 cd. Go to the recovery console from there.
  20. The monitors basically work one way>monitor a port>log what is monitored. They may have temporarily taken the monitor offline, they may not be monitoring port 80, or maybe the software was reconfigured; or more unlikely, they are not limiting your total bandwith. There's a couple of reasons. The way I seen it, if you stand on the benefit side, keep quite and ride the bandwidth train until it lasts.
  21. but he only has to do that if he's going from outside his firewall to inside his firewall... if both computers exist inside the firewall, that's not necessary. the avg home firewall does not block internally routed traffic Oh, I actually meant software firewall on each system. I've only gone through 3 firewall software but they all semi-blocked internal traffic. But it was probably because I restricted my firewalls so much.
  22. Also, how are the IP addresses assigned, statically set on each PC or dynamically via the router?
  23. The router is the DHCP server right? And both PC's are in the same workgroup? Do you have a firewall? If so, you need to add an exception to allow all traffic from whatever range internal IP address scheme you have. Most firewalls have a little wizard that will locate your internal lan and allow all traffic within it.
