  1. I just bought a new computer that has vista. It came with a Vista cd. Now can i use that cd to upgrade my laptop. I tried to install it but there was a screen that said that i cannot go from window xp media center to vista home basic. But there was an advanced option that could click on, but that would clean out my laptop, which i dont want to do. Will the cd work? I'm willing to clean out my laptop if i have to.
  2. whos over 90? Thats gotta be a joke. I may beleive that one old guy but two. Do those people even know a a computer is?
  3. I use bitcomet and use torrentspy.com.
  4. my isp is my phone company. i got there high speed dsl. its only 1 meg down and .5 up. but where im located i can only a max of around 100 Kbps down. My p2p speeds vary from 5-50Kps. I just think either my router is set up so it slows it down, or my isp is just shit(and it is) we've had so much trouble with it. It seemed like dial-up was more reliable. I dl torrents using bitcomet. my limewire runs fine i can get 100Kbps with it. Im not to sure on how port forwarding works.
  5. I was wondering if you guys know of any sites for a WRT54G linksys router, to make my p2p downloading faster? The dl speeds i get are very slow compaired to my DL speed. I think the router is not set up for a p2p dling.
  6. If you cant take it back, then you should be able to call compaq. I think they will send you a box so you can send it in and they can fix it. It may take a while to get through to someone. And if you can live with out it for a while. I have a compaq presario v5000. and the ram didnt work. So i called them and they sent me a box for the comp. but i didnt send it in because i just bought a new ram. but later on they did send me another ram but that one didnt work either.
  7. why would you need speeds that fast? how often do you dl that large of files. Dont you have any patients. If you do dl like that all the time, you better have one hell of a large hard drive.
  8. I think i found the problem. there was a program that i found under the add/remove program. I deleted it and i havent had a pop up yet. It been a couple days so i think it worked. But I think i still have some kind of spyware. But atleast the popups are gone.
  9. i downloaded "malware bot" and that found a lot of stuff that i think might be the cuase of my problems but you have to buy the full version to delete the files. Do you guys know of any other malware remover that will delete the files for free. one of the files was limewire so ill delete limewire to see if that will help. another one was zillabar and wildtangent. If you guys know anything about these let me know.
  10. Le_murphant some of the popups are images but most are just regular websites that pop up. I do have limewire and bitcomet but there not running. would those give me any problems?
  11. I appreciate the help guys. I went to that popup tester site and there is no pop ups when i do that. Theres not much i can tell you guys becuase it just happens randomly. Its not that big of a problem because it doesnt happen all the time. how do i do a screen shot? maybe that might help.
  12. i got windows live onecare. i cant get windows defender because i have onecare. i didnt find anything with it. I also got the spybot that found a few things but it didnt fix the problem. you guys got anything else i could try.
  13. i spoke to soon now im getting pop-ups again. its mostly CID or adult friend finder. if i cant get rid of these soon im thinking about just reformatting my hard drive. Everything i got on my comp i can get back easy enough.
  14. I just got Maxthon and i havent had a pop-up yet, but that might change. i wouldnt mind a popup once in a while but not all the time
  15. im using IE7. but i think i dl something with adware or gone to a website that gave me it. and now i get pop-ups. now im just looking for something to help stop them. but most things i find you have to pay for the full version. now if i switch to firefox would that stop the pop-ups. Ive tried firefox before and i just didnt like it, because you have to dl add-ons.
  16. Ive been having a lot of pop-ups lately, and i was wondering what you all think is the best free pop-up blocker?
  17. yeah everyone phone in the house has a filter on it.
  18. hi, I have been trouble with my dsl connection. It seem to disconnect whenever the phone rings, but it only does it when im playing a game. It only does it my my laptop. It never did this before. My ISP says that there is no problem on there end. What are some reasons for this and how do i fix it?
