  1. OMG... Im so sorry I never replied to your messages before. Dont want you to think I was ignoring you all. But I have XP Home and AVG anti virus with windows defender spyware remover. I have been through my services recently and i have upon boot 18 processes running. that includes my avg too. Sorry again for taking ages to reply.
  2. cool thanks for the replies. Have a good christmas everyone. :):)
  3. So it is an absolute lost cause then?? DAMN Oh well. I will try my other idea then. How about Ubuntu?? Will it accept wireless internet and be able to run all of my stuff? By this I mean is it quite easy to setup? Just pop in CD wipe the dark side off the HDD and BLAM its running?? I know I need certain drivers but am still a Virgin in knowing which ones I need. Let me know please.
  4. Right here i go... I want to get myself a copy of Windows 3.1nt. You may say why oh why. But I have a good reason for this. I have learned that this is actually a 32-bit OS so what I want to do (if you see where I'm going) is get this version of windows on a spare computer and Pimp the hell out of it, virus protection, usb drivers, basically all the stuff i need for a normal person to have going on in XP. You know the basic set of services like I have running now (ooh 19 ) So basically I want windows 3.1nt to run Broadband, USB devices and be cool again. I need to know if any of this is actually possible. Or I'm sure you legendary techies at testmy.net would be intrigued to see if it works you'll steal my idea i don't mind. But I feel like it would be an absolute beast in terms of speed and performance as its size is pathetic and uses hardly any resources to be honest. If you can help me with your advice or any sites you know that have done or are doing this could you let me know please?? Thanks Matt. :) Merry Christmas
  5. Okey dokey, I may sound a little dumb at times but I've never really had the opportunity to work on computers, but in regard to the processes how do you know which ones to stop?? I have 33 processes running and 7 of them are SVCHOST.EXE whatever the hell that is???
  6. Damn. Oh well i will have to give myself stacks of RAM then instead... Hopefully that'll sort the issue out. Do you have any decent tips for speeding up the computers performance??
  7. Thank You dlewis23, its nice to be welcomed. I also have another niggling question to the forum if i may.... How easy is it to upgrade a Laptop??? And how easy is it to Overclock a Pentium M processor??? (CPU1) Intel
  8. Right i know before you read this you'll be all like how slow is that etc etc. But before i did this test My Download Speed was 839kbps and My Upload speed was 100kbps, but i read the article about the tweaks you can install and done all the bits as told and this is the result: :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 1186 Kbps about 1.19 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB) Download Speed is:: 145 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 161 Kbps about 0.16 Mbps (tested with 386 kB) Upload Speed is:: 20 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1) Test Time:: 2006/09/09 - 7:58am D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-R9MP5018L U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-EVZA5ORNY User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; (R1 1.5); .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727) [!] So thanks to VanBuren and the other people who helped me in that Post...
