  1. I had to split this into two packs because deviant art doesn't allow uploads over 80mb. Both packs together are 145 png and icons. The png's are 713 x 713 and the icons are 128 x 128. Anyone who can use the pngs to make higher pixel icons should do so and tell me and I'll include them in the pack. I used a gimp template that was ported off of this photoshop template. [link] So huge amounts of credit goes to Manicho. Pack 1 is Movies whose titles begin with A-L Pack 2 is Movies whose titles begin with M-Z Pack 1 Pack 2

  3. 1. Open the computer, take the hard drive out 2. Find another computer and swap the hard drives, does this still cause a problem? 2A. An alternative to swapping the hard drives (if you don't have an extra computer) is to buy the following equipment from newegg, and attach it to another computer via usb. Does it show up? If the hard drive doesn't show up after option 2 then try option 2A, and recover the files you wish to recover and then reformat your harddrive by right clicking the removable drive and click format NTFS (not quick). After the reformat try putting it back into your comput

  5. OP needs to get his internet working properly on his wireless router. To do so he has to set his modem into bridge mode, thus OP is working with his DSL modem and his wireless router. Below you may find some information that is helpful and may provide insight as to how your personal solution may not be the only solution available and that you in fact do not know everything there is to know about DSL routers connecting with linksys wireless internet. I too have a DSL router and as it happens the same model of linksys wireless router. I have to set up PPoE and had to put my dsl modem into br
  6. "The modem has to use PPPoE. OP doesn't seem to working with a modem." How can you not work with a modem? I've heard of not having a router? But not having a modem? Even if OP wasn't given a modem by his ISP (ridiculously unlikely) then even still, his wireless router will act as his modem. Whatever the case is, he'll still have to setup PPOE on his router if he has DSL. "You don't need bridging if you have multiple "smart devices" on a network. If you connect the routers in the obvious way -- WAN port on the 'inner' router to a LAN port on the 'outer' -- they'll work as you'd expect, if n
  7. EarthLink DSL requires PPPoE authentication for internet access. I fail to understand how setting a router to bridge mode if it is a PPPOE connection between a DSL modem and a linksys router depends on the network.
  8. I still have a few questions. 1. Is your provider a DSL provider? If so you actually want to properly setup your router in PPPOE mode. Additionally you can have both PPPOE and DHCP. DHCP is not a replacement for PPPOE. DHCP means Dynamic Host Configuration Proctol. Basically it means that an internal IP address is assigned to your computer before getting online. DHCP is an alternative to a static IP configuration, wheras you have the same static ip for your router. PPPOE is Point to Point Over the Ethernet, and it is used by DSL providers who require a username and password on startup.
  9. First I'd have to see what your local settings and what your router settings are, you could be telling your router to be DHCP but you could still have a static IP configuration on your local TCP settings. Try going to network connections, right click Wireless local area connection, click properties. Highlight TCP/IP and click properties, does it say "obtain an IP address automatically" or is one assigned? The same thing for your DNS servers. You may want to try assigning a new DNS server. OpenDNS is always a great choice. Get back to me, and i'll troubleshoo
  10. Did you try adjusting your wireless settings (securing it, changing the SSID, adjusting the MTU)?
  11. Post in the Malware Removal forum, personally i think that the problem is that you may have some very nasty rootkits.
  12. Can you go to event log, then clear it, reproduce the problem twice, then download the following tool. Go to file ---> create report file --> .txt then upload the text file and i can help you further.
  13. You could read that EULA two ways Pete. 1. What you said: if you get paid, you can't benefit from it or use it. 2. The way I see it: If the machine you are using it on aids a business, you can't benefit from it. I believe it can be used on personal machines, no matter what the person using it is getting paid. It's not the software the customer is paying for, it's the knowledge of that software and the knowledge of how to use that software that the customer is paying for. How would you view this situation Pete? Situation: Lisa pays John 20 bucks an hour to instruct her how to clean her ma
  14. I still don't get what he means? @related note that is a registry entry that you can change, just google it, but why even use IE cancer when you can have firefox, it's far superior.
  15. I really don't understand what the OP is trying to get at. Use Add/Remove programs Delete any orphaned startup entries using autoruns Type services.msc into the search/run box and turn off any networking services, or services that relate to software that you don't want running. Basically just google the service and do some research on it. The items in the device manager are drivers that correlate to hardware.

  17. Decided to go with a Hand Drawn theme. Tell me if you like.
  18. @ Jc53 I need to know whether your OS is XP or Vista before I can give you the proper advice
  19. Check your services. Go to start Run type services.msc Are both Automatic Updates and Background Intelligent Transfer Service running? If so try restarting them both and redownloading your update.
  20. If you don't have the OS disk there's very little anyone can do to help you. Once you get the OS disk I can help you fix your booting problem. Until then you're out of luck.
  21. Was curious as to whether BestTechie will be joining BleepingComputer and Geekstogo?
