    Haven't been on here for years, but my heart sank when I saw the news. I am glad to see you are still with us, caintry_boy. Stay strong.
  2. Also try running and installing Microsoft Security Essentials - usually finds most fake antivirus programs. Chances are it's a .exe file in your %Username%/AppData/Local/Temp folder (Vista and Windows 7) with a weird name like 1e12e1uurdrna8123.exe (or folder name).
  3. They could, but honestly what do you expect them to do? The only thing they can do is completely 100% redo their operating system to like, Linux or something, which would completely screw over old/current software companies, and even then, viruses would transition to the linux-based operating systems. The only reason they make viruses for windows-based operating systems is because there is a profit to be had. Either way Microsoft goes, they can't really avoid viruses. The only thing they can do is put out a solid protection program to defend/remove the viruses, and they did that with Microsoft Security Essentials.
  4. Have you even tried Microsoft Security Essentials? Don't judge a book by it's cover.
  5. Do you guys need a Core 2 Duo rig?
  6. Logic board. Not the whole HDD itself.

    Vista 64 to W7 34

    For starters, there is no 34bit version. It's 32bit and 64bit. I've noticed NO problems running the 64bit version of Windows 7, but to each his/her own. You'd have to do a fresh install to go to Windows 7 32bit.
  8. I'm talking "Custom PCs, case mods, overclocking" forum standards, mayng.
  9. Well yeah... 550w is actually kind of low for today's standards.
  10. To each his/her own, I suppose. I guess also working in Corporates back yard doesn't help, but probably around 90% of the employees I've met are very competent. There is maybe one person out of our 12 employees that I wouldn't trust. I've also been to a lot of other stores around the areas and they've all been the same, with very competent employees.
  11. Thanks guys. I actually work at Geek Squad. It's funny how every single one of you think that the Geek Squad is FULL of idiots, when it's only one or two here and there that can make a whole company look bad. A high amount of us are certified. I know my . I've also been using a Rocketfish 700w PSU for over a year now with no headaches.
  12. Don't mean to be a jerk or anything, but your location says that you're in Sarasota, Florida. They have to atleast have DSL there. Why not take the opportunity to ditch outdated technology?
  13. When doing that, I get this: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done ubuntu-restricted-extras is already the newest version. The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: nspluginwrapper Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. ian@ian-desktop:~$ Edit: Firefox seems to freeze once it starts transferring data from googlevideo.
