  1. i got a 4GB usb drive. Would it be faster to format it as FAT16 or not? And if it is not possible, how would I use the FAT32 driver from Win2k which is much faster?
  2. Hello! I brought my home computer here in the student hall. It runs Windows 2003 Standard Edition. At home we had an ADSL connection and it used the RASPPPOE client which I uninstalled now. Here in the student hall we each get an external static IP and the speeds are about 5MB/s. The problem is that when using Internet Explorer or Firefox or even WU the speeds start at 12KB/s and then it lowers to 2KB/s or sometimes even lower. But uTorrent works without problem with the speeds of around 400KB/s. What is the problem? The computer is spyware, virus free and fully updated. SOLVED: I changed the adapter from force 100full duplex to auto negotiation and upon restart it started to download normally and the connection is 100Mb full duplex.
  3. Mael Win7 build 7000 does not have the taskbar. they took it out. if U really want it back you would have to replace some files using Vista's files. Can give you a tutorial if you want?
  4. Maelstrom what about gadgets, do they work?
  5. wraith that it is the same that I said only a bit more friendly
  6. am not sure but I believe that I have read somewhere that if you turn down UAC then sidebar is broken
  7. On my home lan I have 2clients plus a server running Win2k3 where all of the needed files are stored. Lots of times I bring home computers which need fixing and it is annoying to having to always input the username and password to access the network shares. Is it possible to modify Win2k3 so that it doesn't need a password/username for the network shares? ps. I know this is possible in linux and since Windows also uses SMB I hope it is possible in Windows also.
  8. Hello! On my server which is running Win2003 with 512MB ram I would like to set so that Firefox would not get swapped like you can do it with the kernel files(disable paging executive). So that after 4days when I will re-connect to the server via RDP and maximize Firefox I will not have to wait for the data to be read from the page file. And the task manager says that about 300MB of ram is still free
  9. S3 mode works fine with a startup time of about 4s. BUt hibernation startup is a b***h. During start up 3/4 of time the disk will not do anything. I attach a picture from what bootvis gathered: What could be the problem? Using WinXP SP3
  10. cluberti will go to the library today, hope they have it
  11. cluberti I also ran this on my main machine with 2GB of ram where I loaded a handful of application together with Windows and Linux running in VirtualBox both set to use 512MB ram. Here are the numbers in MB Available Bytes 47,6640625 Cache Bytes 166,828125 Pool Nonpaged 21,16015625 Working Set 409,2929688 sum 644,9453125 2048-sum 1403,054688 So what does this number tell since since it is so much bigger than the one measured on the server?
  12. but what does this difference even tell me? and what variance do you talk about? this is how my latest attempt looks like. in MB Available 335,3359375 Cache 38,50390625 Pool Nonpaged 14,0546875 Working Set 122,3046875 sum 510,1992188 Ram-sum 1,80078125
  13. cluberti I see the error now. But what I do not understand is what does this ~8MB mean? Does it mean that only 8MB of RAM is left for the machine or what? ps. If I also launch Firefox, uTorrent, Excel than the number comes down to ~1MB.
  14. I did this: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=729331 but the figures are strange on my Pentium 3 1Ghz 512MB ram with Windows 2003 Enterprise running DNS,DHCP,RRAS(for internet sharing 3 client PCs),FileZilla FTP server without any open programs. Look: Available Bytes 361000000 Cache Bytes 42000000 Pool Nonpaged 15000000 Working Set 110000000 sum 528000000 512-sum -16000000 What am I doing wrong?
  15. I do not understand Windows XP memory management. 1.In TASK manager under the MEM USAGE if I were to sum it all up and then subtract it from 2GB of my RAM I should have much more RAM free than it says under the Available Physical memory. 2. What is the system cache also in the task manager? 3. what is the peak mem usage also in the task manager?
  16. first I had Win XP x64 installed and after that I installed Win XP SP3 x32 on the second partition, cos I needed to work on some 16bit apps for school. and for a few days both OSes worked normally. But since yesterday the Win X64 OS will not boot giving me an error: <windows root> System32\NTOSKRNL.EXE missing or corrupt but the Win XP 32 works normally. boot.ini: [boot loader] timeout=3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional x64 Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect These are the boot files: 25.03.2005 14:00 47.772 NTDETECT.COM 25.03.2005 14:00 47.772 NTDETECT.COM.orig 25.03.2005 14:00 295.536 NTLDR 09.07.2008 12:21 295.536 ntldr.orig I have done everything that this guide suggest but nothing has changed: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314477 and also have overwrited the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from my XP 64 CD to C partition, and ran FIXMBR and FIXBOOT from Win 64 recovery console.
  17. in that case would it be ok if I were to delete the partition where Win x32 resides and also delete on c partition Windows folder, Programs&Files, Docs&Settings. And then put a a Windows cd in and install it to this partition?
  18. cluberti so the only good way is to reinstall Win32 x32?
  19. I thought of that but I really would like to get back to Win x32. Would it be possible with the above method? ps. I already do have win x32 installed
  20. Hello! I've been using Win x64 as my main system for about 4months now. And even thou drivers are all 64bit compatible for my system I have to go back to Win x32 simply because I need access to 16bit application which I cannot run in Win x64. These 16b application I need because our college for Computer and Science uses them alot. This is the situation: on my main partition C I have Win x64 installed. And since I needed Win x32 for school I installed Win x32 on the second partition which gets the letter F. here is the boot.ini file: [boot loader] timeout=3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional x64 Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer /sos /numproc=2 multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect now I would like to delete on C partition Win x64, Program Files, Docs&Settings and using Acronis Disk director join the two partitions. 1. how can I do that since Win x32 thinks it is installed on F and also all the shortcut lead to drive letter F? 2. is there a better way of doing this? 3. is it even possible?
  21. the only .ini file is called layout.ini and that one is full of strange code.
  22. bootvis does exist but only works in 32bit Windows XP. ps. how do I check the log of prefetching?
