for days I've been having probs with Norton AV 2004, had to manually remove it on the HardDrive and from the registry, I have deleted a few other things by mistake, now WIN+E doesnt work and when I click on a folder it opens the search window instead of opening the folder, I dont want to reboot just incase if I cant get in, the PC loads up loads quicker now that I am using Avast, and only using 10% of RAM instead of 35% at idle.

other stuff that I have got rid off and now using 3rd Party software

MSN

IRC

Kazza

Outlook

XP Pro(will upgrade in a few weeks)

Access (will upgrade to Oracle)

yeah since 2002 (i think) norton AV got REALLY bloated.

i had an older version that i'd had installed previously that used up hardly any resources that was compatible with the latest AV updates so all was good, cept i lost the disc, lol

hrm what else?...

latest zonealarm is bloated too, older versions used much less resources. its the new "skinning" engine that they use, pity u cant turn it off.

as for outlook, NEVER used that. its pants... heh

as for the search window problem have a go with ol regedit.

u cant do too much harm in there (just make sure u backup any keys prior to editing).

I think this' the branch that u'll need to edit as somehow u've messed up either the default action (open) and set it to serch. either that or deletd the open cmd.

..\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder

in case u need it here's mine exported as a reg file m8.

u can just click on it to merge it, and it should correct the actions.

FOLDER.reg

same here, i stopped using it this year. 2004 AV was way to slow and caused my pc to lock up a few times. Ive got a Dual pentium 3 box running at 800mhz, it took it 10 minutes to scan 2 50kb emails before sending them out.

ok, what should I use instead of zona alarm, the PCs, are networked x3, and only the main server is connected to the net (the other PCs uses the server as a proxy) the server is a FTP, IIS, Storage, and Games Server

well tbh as must as i dont like the fact zonealarm is a little heavy at times it's a must imo.

functionally its spot on and the advanced settings r second 2 none!

so i'd suggest u install that neways !

then the best thing to do is use something like this:

to get ur configuration started, then u'll be practing safe internet browsing. its all about safety nowdays! :thumbsup:

i used cleansweep to do this ages ago. not really had a need for something like this recently. i'm sure a quick google search will bring something decent up.

Do u mean on the desktop? :unsure:

with the 1st reg file it Renames "My Computer" and "My Network Places" to "Folder", messed with the Registry and now they both say "My Computer" how do I give My Network Places its own name?

can't u just rename it on the desktop?

as for HAL basically is just some drivers winxp needs for base stuff such as for ur bios. depending on ur bios on install xp will usualy select the correct one for u. in my case w. my bios being acpi compatible it selected ACPI Uniprocessor PC. u can change it to Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC if ur feeling brave, but i was lazy on the current xp install. heh

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
