Re: Damn Computer. Nerds Unite

Look into Panda instead. Spysweeper has been useless for me. I ran a scan with Spysweeper, Adaware, and Panda's free online scan...Spysweeper and adaware found nothing other than a couple of cookies....panda found 12 REAL applications...but I couldn't fix them.

Down side...you can't run panda with other competitors products. Check out their website though and run a free scan and see what it says.

Panda ActiveScan – Free online antivirus to combat viruses, spyware and other Internet threats.

The free scan is that animated thing in the middle of the screen.

I'm a big believer in occasional formats/reinstalls. Whenever one of mine starts acting up, I've found that it's quicker and easier to do that than it is to diagnose and fix the problems.

I agree. I pretty much rebuild mine every 12-18 months. However, now that I have a non-hacked version of XP...I will be creating a ghost image of the computer once I have the OS's installed...and then after everything else is installed so it will just take a restore to fix it in the future.

You have to buy panda to do it unfortunately...

Now, run spysweeper and/or adaware and see if they find any of it other than cookies.

I know i will be reformatting in a few days, and cleaning both of my mass storage drives of everything but what i need most (Quake4, BF2142, 3Dmark06, MP3's, Adobe CS2). x64 has gotten really slow on me during the past couple months. I just gotta find where i put that dam usb thingy with my x64 on it.

How do you like 2142? I'm about to make some game purchases, and I was considering that one.

Re: Damn Computer. Nerds Unite

eh, im not a big fan of the series. its fun, for a few minutes. graphics are decent, i have it turned up full and not really impressed, its always seemed like a "Flat" game to me. i guess its better in multiplayer, but i hate playing with people so eh. im glad i didnt spend money on it thats for sure.
