I attend Grade school online, you know like that collage thing that keep advertsing on TV, But only for grade school. It's a local charter school.
And they have up on their site that I can't download anything UNLESS
it is tottaly needed. like Paches for viruses and loop holes.
They should know, unless they are completely ignorant about typical MS Software, that unless you keep your system up to date and patched your
system is going to have problems. It will have glitches, security holes and a whole array of other 'user un-friendly' things that NEED
Well in the case of that happening they just take the easy way out....get a new computer....but I also have this problem where I have my extra
curicular activities stored on this computer and I have no CD burner......so I try to work around stupid glitches and problems. because we can't even
take it to the local computer repair shop because they won't alow it.
You should verify if it's ok to Update your machine from the Official Microsoft Website. If they say NO, tell them you have a friend who is a
certified tech and network administrator who wants to know WHY you aren't allowed to update your system. Trust me, this is a totally valid question
to ask, since it's recommended that you keep your system updated for every other computer in the world, so it should be the same for you.
Well for one I have no 'friends' that are computer techs that live close. exsept for the computer guy from the local repair shop wich we can't go
to. So you see I'm in a rut here.....
You're probably right. If it was a problem with winsock, you'd most likely be having other problems as well. Since you can't update either, this
problem would have always been happening since winsock would be the same now as it was from day 1.
What kind of problems. I have this problem where I can't clean out my cookies, when the guy programed it the physical memory wouldn't hold squat,
and now it is taking longer and longer to get stuff to load! It could just be the memory, I don't really know. Because I can't even get a new video
or memory card, I would have to get a new computer if I wanted more memory! :bnghd:
CTRL+C copies and CTRL+X cuts. I don't know if that was what you meant or not, so I thought I'd throw it out there just in case.
I knew that alredy. I just like to use Cut and Paste instead of copy and paste....easier to remember.
It is possible that damage from a virus has been done and is causing your problem. If the virus was effectively caught and removed by
antivirus software when it originally hit you, then you should be ok. If it was allowed to infect you and then removed later, some kind of damage may
have been done already. Removal of the virus then may or may not fix all of the damage. All the more reason why you NEED UPDATES.
Yeah...I also had this worm that the programer guy put in when he was installing everything (He used copies). but I walled it off. so no harm
There are some additional steps I could recommend but I don't know how well you know your way around the Operating System itself and how
comfortable you are with checking services and stuff. But if you'd like to try, let me know.
I know it pretty well. I just don't want to mess with the regstry or any vital files because I don't want to make a mistake and erase my whole
