    Asp.net problem

    I'm having a few things happen on my computer that I'm curious about. I'm not sure if it's a problem, but it's arroused my suspicion. Recently, I've noticed that when my pc goes to a screen saver and I move the mouse to use the pc again, I have to click on my account again to log back on. I'm...

    AOL dialer

    thank you dduardo. I've looked over the site and it looks good. I'm going to show my parents and see if they like it.

    AOL dialer

    I absolutely hate AOL. I currently minimize AOL on connection then use Opera as a browser. I just don't want to run aol's software at all other than for the connection to a dial up server. If I had my way, it'd be cable internet, but broadband won't be available in my area for a couple more...

    Opera browser

    I'd like an opinion on the browser, Opera. I happen to like it, but I'm wondering how good it actually is in your opinions? If Firefox has any significant advantages? I have dial up, so I don't have much bandwidth.

    AOL dialer

    I've heard of a program that comes with aol called aol dialer or something like that. From what I hear, this program comes with aol and allows you to dial up without using aols ****ty software. I want to use the dialer to get internet connectivity and use opera as a browser (which I am using...

    Mouse causing noise

    wow, I rerouted the mouse wire and the noise stopped. It was all wrapped up in the speaker wires. problem solved except for the booting without the mouse working problem, but that doesn't happen too often.

    Mouse causing noise

    My mouse is causing noise in my speakers whenever I move it. I can't exactly explain the noise, but it's quite and wouldn't be noticed if perhaps the television was on or I had an mp3 playing. I tried muting the speakers from the volume control panel in windows XP, but I could still hear the...

    IE and spyware

    Does your dad know how to backup his documents and such? or does he lose all his personal files everytime he does it? I would also like to add that I recommend Opera. I would if I didn't have AOL. Unfortunately though, I do (I want to switch, but other dial up ISPs suck almost as bad). I...

    Network question

    Thank you anttech. That cleared up the main thing I was wondering about. As for the other, I'll figure it out myself.

    Network question

    I think I was a little misunderstood. I have a 10Mbps network running from NIC to NIC that is actively running on this pc as I type. I was just wondering if there would be any unforseen problems with switching it over to 100Mbps. However, I already tried switching to 100Mbps and it didn't...

    Network question

    A cat-5 cable would require a hub or router though.

    Network question

    I just set up a 10baseT LAN between 2 pcs with an ethernet crossover cable. It operates at 10Mbps, half duplex. I know the ethernet card in this pc supports 100baseTX, and I'm pretty sure the NIC in the other pc does as well. I'd like to set them to 100baseTX and full duplex to try to get a...

    Closing IE with game running

    thank you for specifying, Dduardo. I closed explorer.exe, lol. I see that's now a good idea.

    Closing IE with game running

    question. Is it a good idea to use ctl+alt+del to shut down Internet Explorer while running a video game? The intent would be to save system resources. If it matters, the game is Fallout Tactics and I run windows XP. I tried it and it worked, except for the fact that I couldn't restart...

    CAT5E and T568A vs. T568B

    although I don't follow you completely, I would like to specify a couple things that confused me. t568A and t568B are 2 different wiring standards used in cat-5 cable. Normally, t568B wiring is used, but t568a wiring also works. If you use a cable with t568B on one end and t568A on the other...
