Hi folks.
Looks like a worthwhile forum where semi-techies can discover solutions.
I have a few friends who had the spyaxe problem and the solution here worked very well.
I support a few people who are not computer literate and it is becoming increasingly obvious there is a need for a few more of us semi-techies (know enough to fix standard problems and to know where to go for expert help).
I had my first hard-drive failure (on my Centrino laptop) earlier this week and was able to re-install everything in 24 hours. I did discover hard-drives can be poor or quite good. The Toshiba drive (80GB and 4200rpm) for my Centrino laptop was only 12 month warranty. The replacement (80GB and 5400rpm) cost $190 CDN (including taxes) and has a 3 year warranty. It is not Toshiba!
One thing I have not been able to do is completely network my XP Home desktop with my XP Prof laptop thru my SMC2804WBRP-G router. After my OS re-install on my laptop, I can now see the desktop shared files on my laptop but not the d-drive or c-drive.
Since i re-nstalled XP Prof on my laptop, I can now printer share my Lexmark x1165 all-in-one printer via my router from the desktop.

BTW, if you are thinking about Cable vs ADSL, it is a no-brainer with Rogers here in Ontario. I am getting over 600 download speeds (Rogers Extreme Cable) vs the 200 I was getting with ADSL at the same monthly cost.

My biggest concerns are spyware now. Most of my computer challenged friends don't understand what is required and I am trying to install free tools that are automated and it is working quite well. There really is no need to buy software with the excellent anti-virus, anti-spyware and registry cleaners available. I have been using them for some time without any problems or infections.
If you would like to know the best of these, drop me an e-mail.

Welcome to BC!
User knowledge is the best first defence against spyware, and all the great applications is the second.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
