  1. Inpaint Available Again

    Inpaint is again available for free today from Giveaway of the Day.. This is a great little app for removing unwanted items from a photo.
  2. can't watch some videos on youtube

    To see if the Hosts file is the culprit, there are other ways to do this as well, but there's a simple little batch file utility called RenHosts (Rename Hosts), that once installed, allows for quickly renaming the Hosts file just by double clicking the shortcut. http://winhelp2002.m...sfaq.htm#Rename
  3. can't watch some videos on youtube

    BTW. . . still using XP SP3 here and it works just fine.
  4. can't watch some videos on youtube

    Are you using any programs that block scripts (e.g., NoScript)?
  5. Adobe Flash vs. Shockwave Flash

    I just discovered that I have both Adobe Flash and Shockwave Flash installed on my XP system. Do I need both of them or do they do essentially the same thing?
  6. Firefox Problem

    I have a little Firefox issue I can't figure out. I frequently visit a "news" site that just recently changed its format, layout and overall appearance. This particlar site has a lot of small photos -- often with a caption and a sentence or two of text under these photos. It appears that I have some sort of rendering or registration problem with this particular site. When I access the site, what I get is a lot of blank boxes with the photo above the box (photo should be in the box). I've tried clearing both the browser cache and cookies, but that doesn't fix it. Any other suggestions. By the way, I don't have this problem with IE7 and the it seems to be isolated to this site using Firefox -- and I didn't have this problem until they redesigned their site about a week ago.
  7. Firefox Problem

    Firefox 11 -- Windows XP SP3
  8. I have a number of frequently accessed folders on my desktop. Inside those folders are program shortcuts set to display as Icons. I've noticed recently since version 3.22 that every time I run CCleaner, they get reset from "Icons" to "Details." I may have something improperly checked, but I can't seem to figure out what is resetting them. BTW, I've even tried running CCleaner repeatedly until there's nothing left to clean. Then I've gone back and reset everything back to display as Icons, run Analyze in CCleaner (nothing shows up) and then run Remove. When I go back to those folders, they're all been changed from the Icon format to the Details format. Any thoughts? (XP SP3 - also running Winapp2.ini).
  9. CCleaner Changing My Folder "Views"

    I found the culprit. I had checked the [Windows XP Shellbags*] -- whatever they are .
  10. CCleaner Changing My Folder "Views"

    That's not it Alan, but I still haven't found it. One other thing that's happening along with changing ICONS to DETAILS is that the window size itself is also being reduced. I'm not sure what you call it, but it's the size between Maximized and Minimized.
  11. CCleaner Changing My Folder "Views"

    I just disabled the Winapp2.ini file and ran CCleaner -- no problems at all. So it's definitely a setting in Winapp2.ini. Now it's just a matter of trying to figure out which one.
  12. CCleaner Changing My Folder "Views"

    I think the icons might actually be there or are being rebuilt because when I go into one of these folders -> click View -> click Icons it changes them from Details to Icons just fine. And they seem to be staying that way until I run CCleaner again. BTW, are all of my checkbox setting choices stored in the winapp.ini file? .
  13. BufferZone Pro

    Anyone have any experience with BufferZone Pro on an XP XP3 system? Would love to hear your comments - good and bad.
  14. BufferZone Pro

    Still 32bit here, Andavari, so that's not a problem. Guess I was a little more concerned with how well it performed, resource usage, how much of a system slowdown there was (if any), etc.
  15. Toolwiz Time Freeze

    Anyone successfully using the most current version of Toolwiz Time Freeze on a XP SP3 box? I had tried an earlier version which worked very well, then updated to a later version that ended up being a disaster in XP. That problem, however, is supposedly corrected, but I have been a little afraid to give it a try.
  16. Toolwiz Time Freeze

    Thanks, Login, a very comprehensive review and analysis indeed. This helps a lot. As I mentioned previously, I had v.1.6 installed and it worked well. But when they released 1.7 -- Whoa!!!! (at least on XP). I had some serious BSOD issues that took hours to correct. However, it was reported that these were fixed in a subsequent version. But after my BSOD experience I've been very reluctant to try it again. Anyway, thanks again for your all your help.
  17. Freeware Rebooted

    One small additional feature is that you can highlight multiple files simultaneously, right-click for Properites, then the checksums for all of those files are displayed in the Checksum tab.
  18. Freeware Rebooted

    Here's another one (HashCheck), somewhat similar in function to HashTab, but very light and very fast. http://code.kliu.org/hashcheck/
  19. What Anti-Virus do you use

    Does Panda Cloud also provide e-mail protection (attachments, etc.) when using an e-mail client?
  20. Don't know about Chrome, but have used LastPass for quite some time with Firefox -- and, of course, CCleaner. Have never had a problem of any kind.
  21. Macrium Image Restore?

    I just saw this today over at Wilders and it kind of scared me: "Today i tried to restore a macrium reflect image and when i get to the macrium rescue wizard at boot up it will not recognise or display my external hard drive at all so i could not restore an image." This is exactly what I do -- backup my Macrium Reflect Image(s) to a Western Digital USB external HDD. I don't believe this person mentioned which version of Macrium they were using, but their comment sure concerned me. All along, I've assumed a restore would work if it were needed, but now I'm wondering. Anyone know anything about this or have a similar experience?
  22. Macrium Image Restore?

    Good point.
  23. AppGuard

    Anyone have any experience with Blue Ridge's AppGuard -- pros/cons??
  24. Macrium Image Restore?

    Thanks for the help and reassuring comments. And, Dennis, thanks for the DiskRestore suggestion. Actually, I'll have to check, but I believe I might already have a copy of that little app. Currently, I'm running Macrium version 5 Pro. With that comes the ability to create a Windows PE rescue CD, which includes "Disk Restore" as a menu option on that bootable CD. By the way, for anyone having concerns similar to what I expressed yesterday, I contacted Macrium support and here's what I heard back: "Macrium Reflect itself has never had any issues when restoring from external USB hard drives. Some customers in the past have had hardware issues (such as faulty cabling, degrading hardware) which can contribute toward restore issues. Other issues have tended toward newer USB3 hardware and driver support."
  25. Returnil and other drives protection.

    So how do you set that up, Dennis? Do you just string the drive letters together with commas? Or to be specific, what would be the nomanclature for adding two external usb HDDs? Disregard, Dennis, I figured it out.
