That little tast bar along the bottem with all the stuff next to the clock, how do you change the tasks that run there casue my computer is really slowing down XD Help please

What do you mean? If you don't want the programs there, then right click and close them. o.O;

And have you run a spyware/adware check for the slowness?

I think you can go to Start -> Run and type in "msconfig". There should be a Startup tab or something there from which you can choose which programs to load when you start your computer.

Of course, I have close to no idea what I'm talking about, so... if it doesn't work, ask someone who does know. <_<

Well, glad to see that you've got most of your problems
dealt with. I was tampering with an old ASM program made
by myself, but I couldn't remember what the program does and
couldn't interpret the source code itself! So I messed with it a
bit, compiled it and then it releases a virus on my system.
Then it says "Remember not to tamper with stuff you don't know!
By, *my name*"
Anyway, got to sort that out now.

LOL, teaches you not to play with viruses right? XD

Maybe you should comment your code next time... it's odd, I have things I programmed three years ago (I was really good at it back then) and now I look at them and I have no idea how I did them XD. I comment everything now XD.

Oh, and Greg - here's a cough drop.

Hey thx Lightning! I might be able to stop my Firewall from running!!!!!!!

Or maybe it will block my connection with the internet *checks it out* O.O

EDIT: No no naaaaaw ;-;

What happened to your firewall? XD

July 22nd, 2004, 5:44 AM
I can't conect to the internet if I disable the Firewall =(

July 22nd, 2004, 3:39 PM
Uh... great. A software firewall shouldn't do that, should it? Might be spyware of some kind...

Goten Shy, regarding your first problem with the programs along your taskbar, you can try Lightning's suggestion with the 'msconfig' utility. Also, I would suggest you removing the programs that you don't use. If you find yourself closing the same programs over and over at the taskbar, perhaps you don't have any need for it anymore.

Tig, what firewall are you using? You could try uninstalling it, or disabling it. It depends really what firewall you use.

*notes that Tig said she can't connect if she disables the firewall*

Is it something to do with a proxy or something?
