  1. Have a great birthday, Matt!
  2. Are the two devices physically connected to the same IDE channel? If so, utilize the second IDE channel (if you have one). Attach hard disk drives to the primary IDE channel and optical drives to the secondary IDE channel. Devices at the end of the IDE ribbon are usually considered "Master", whereas those in the middle are considered "Slave". If you use the cable select jumper setting on your drives you do not have to worry about which position you attach to. However, if you specify "Master" or "Slave" in the jumper settings then you have to attach them to the correct position. Next, you shoul
  3. You may want to post this in the Malware Removal section of the forum. One of the mods might move this for you if it is noticed in time. But first, read the instructions on How To Post A HijackThis Log. You should be using the latest official version of HijackThis.
  4. Are you referring to the Windows boot manager screen or GRUB? What is the error that you are getting?
  5. In Photoshop I just go to "Reset Brushes". Don't know if there is a similar option in Photoshop Elements.
  6. I do not have experience running WordPress on a local server, but I do have it installed on a web host. In the shared web hosting environment our database names usually look like this: account_database And the database user usually looks like this: account_user Where "account" is the name of the shared hosting space and "account_user" has permissions to access "account_database". As a result, when it is time to specify the database and user in wp-config.php, here is what we must enter: define('DB_NAME', 'account_database'); define('DB_USER', 'account_user'); Also note that you must also enter
  7. Hahahaha! Enjoyed that, especially the last clip!
  8. Here is where you can download the full SP3 installer. Downloading SP3 through Windows Update does not give you easy access to the installer and, furthermore, most slipstreaming tutorials will ask that you download the full installer. You can store it wherever you want. Renaming does not interfere with the installer's ability to work. Whatever suits you.
  9. If your laptop cannot support 3.0Gbps transfers it will only drop back to the 1.5Gbps speed.
  10. Open MBAM, click on the 'Logs' tab and open the log you wish to view.
  11. Happy birthday, 'CurlingSteve'!
  12. Is the ATF Cleaner similar to the Secure Shredder built into Spybot S&D? As a side note, I use CCleaner and have yet to encounter a problem with it on Windows XP Professional SP3 (32-bit) and Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (64-bit), and that goes for whether I'm using the file or registry cleaners. However, it is not a piece of software I would go insisting everyone use because I blindly believe that it is 'perfect' and will never cause problems. The fact that persons do have bad experiences with it obviously proves otherwise.
  13. I thought the maximum number of connections to establish in IE was recommended to be 10. Your internet connection might be fast but increasing this value has the effect of putting more stress on website servers that you visit thereby inflicting some performance issues. As a matter of fact, some sites can detect too many concurrent connections from a single source and will block the source.
  14. Happy birthday, Marty! Have a good one!
  15. Didn't know if this was posted before, but thought it was pretty cool to share. If the embedded video does not work you can always view via the link:
  16. I found this piece of news via gHacks.comp. Check Point will be giving away free copies of the ZoneAlarm Pro firewall application on Tuesday, 18th November, 2008 only.
  17. You do not necessarily have to get rid of them. You can simply reset them to the defaults and load the others only when you need them. BTW, brushes are stored in the Adobe > Adobe Photoshop > Presets > Brushes folder.
  18. Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex, GNOME 2.24.1, conky, Ubuntu Dust theme, hydroxygen icons, AWN
  19. UPDATE: I was finally able to get the audio to work after reading this bug report. It turns out I only had to add "options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1" to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and reboot! BTW, everything in the 'Sound Playback' sections of System > Sound was set to "Auto Detect".
  20. That would be the day! AMD merged with ATI. Just try visiting the ATI website and you will see AMD's brand all around. ATI is now AMD's graphics hardware division. I haven't heard about Intel merging with nVidia, but that would be something to behold. I know that they do work together on a lot of hardware especially when it comes to chipsets and SLI, although ATI could get a close-to-equal partnership with their own chipsets and Crossfire.
  21. Just something I threw together in Photoshop with some stock resources. The wallpaper can be downloaded from here (1440x900 res. | 6.32MB | PNG | 300dpi | 16-bit colour).
  22. OMG! I hope he's okay! I don't want to sound uncaring or anything, but now he has to find a lot more change to pay for his hospital bills.
