  3. These are just small things you can do to speed it up a little. 1. Clean up your hard drive files. Double click on Computer Icon on your desktop. Right click on the C: drive. Select Disk Cleanup. Select all the boxes. Then select okay. This gets rid of a lot of junk you don't need. Especially all the error files and temporary internet files. 2. Speed up your graphics and imaging. Right click on Computer Icon on desktop. Lower left corner select performance and tools Select Adjust visual effects Under Visual Effects select Select Custom then select the following options. Show thumbnails instead of icons. Smooth Edges of screen fonts Use visual Styles on windows and buttons Restart system and you will see how much faster it is. Then Defrag your drive. I like using Defraggler. It is free and works great. https://www.ccleaner.com/defraggler Now for security. Make sure your AV scans for rootkits and make it get rid of PUPs.

  5. Two Truths and a Lie

    Racist ! Why is it always a big fat lie? What has being fat got to do with lying? Do all fat people lie? Maybe I can sue over that statement and get millions of dollars for hurting my feelings
  6. You may laugh at the heading but for the last several months I have had this argument with my wife. One day, my wife is watching DirecTv on her TV and the screen screws up and then there is no picture. I am in the back of the house in my study, when she bursts in and starts yelling at me about how my computer is screwing up her TV show. With my mouth agape, I try to calm her first, then explain that the two are not connected together. She is not tech savvy at all. So I go out and reset her DTV receiver and the picture and sound work fine. Then she says this, "stay off the internet when I am watching my program!" (Dr. Phil) I hold my tongue and go back to my study. The next day she is still crazy about this. So I sit her down and show her how the two are not even connected with each other. (Except for my DTV Receiver is hooked to wifi, which I don't use.) About a week goes by and again her STB screws up and I have to reset it again. (It died a few days later) She starts her tirade again about MY internet messing up her TV. So about 3 days later a new STB DVR arrives and I set it up and everything is back to normal. She only watches 8 channels, so, her favorites is easy to do. While I am doing this I take her to the garage and show her how the cables are run around the house to the different STB's. Then I show her how the CAT5 for the internet is run around the house. I think she finally gets it. But.....then the rain starts. Last night we had a terrible storm go over us and it really rained and so the DiTV went out of course. I thought I was in the middle of a cat fight and getting the worst of it. But I explained, again, how the rain affects the signal dish outside. After 30 minutes or so, the rain quit, TV came back on, and it was peace in the house again. Until this morning. I am in the study reading email and texts and running the internet for news, when she comes storming into the room yelling about her TV again. She says, "I am going to cancel that damn internet, if you don't stay off while I am watching my shows !". So, I took her outside to the internet box and I unplugged it. Then we went back in to the house and to her TV and it is going fine. Before I could explain that the internet didn't mess up her TV, she says, "SEE that is what I am talking about!" "Stay off the internet when I am watching my shows!" I slowly crept back to the study, went outside and hooked up the internet cable again and went back to reading the news on the net. She has been happy since then. But I needed about 15 Diazapam® to just get my heart back under 200 BPM. About an hour later, Frontier FIOS calls me and says that I lost connection with them this morning and they are sending someone out to check our lines. Why NOT. Ah the life of old people....it ain't all sitting on the porch drinking Maitai's.
  7. Every time I start getting into a space show, they cancel it. Dark Matter was a great show. It was like watching "Serenity" again. Bad guys in space also doing good. Great actors and dialog. So I guess we get another evil satanic POS show to take it's place. The show went a little awry with the advent of the other people coming into our space-time and screwing things up, but the writers should have gone another direction. I wish Netflix would pick it up. It's a good show.

  9. Skorpion fix ?

    Here is what I found on the internet. I don't care CoD4 is an old game, the Skorpion is a legit problem with the rule set at the moment with nearly 7-8 people using it in a lobby. It's an SMG with the capabilities of an AR and more reliable than a scope (especially if one bullet on the scope is missed, it's long range abilities when tap fired are bullshit). You're right, it was never an issue in the past because only 1-2 people used it in games, but now it has replaced every single role in the game with it's ability to have decent short range, amazing long range (even being used a pre-sprays these days) and great medium range with up to 8 people using it.. The silencer does not decrease it's range one bit, or its damage. It is a god like gun. There was enough interest for the SCAR-H to be banned, and there has been way more interest for this to be banned by majority of the COD4 community. I don't know how many of you making the decisions have played CoD4, but I've nearly been on it every single day playing customs and the gun is legit f***ed. If you haven't jumped on CoD4 please reconsider your stance, things change and this is as Dsav would say 'ruin the comp'. No SMG, no matter what, should x-map people. Please don't ignore this, there's a reason a thread was made. Actually listen like you did with the SCAR-H. These decisions don't put people OFF, if you haven't realised that now, then christ. 'omg banned skorpion not playing in cod4 comp' <--- would never happen, 'skorpion is banned thank good decision, and was the right decision based on how bulls the gun was'. It'd just make for a more ENJOYABLE, and skillful ruleset. I don't believe someone with an SMG who put themself in a bad position should be able to cross map people with a gun having the capabilities of an AR. I mean,why ban the M8A1 and FAL on BO2? Because their influence in 5s, along with how quick it kills and decent short range which can outgun SMG's is why they're banned (i'm assuming). Please, for the sake of the last CoD4 competition ban the Skorpion, it won't deter ANYONE.
  10. Skorpion fix ?

    A player asked if we had fixed the "Skorpion silencer problem"? Supposedly there is a selection error when selecting the silencer. It makes the gun inaccurate. Anyone on here heard of this? Smoke

  12. A big thank you to our COD4 admins...

    I would like to thank =F|A=Shoes and others who re-set the server and made it run smoothly again, and, also to Shoes for rotating the maps. Thank you !
  13. Xernicus is correct. That software was the precursor to the hidden partition re-installation program that is common today. You should be able to find the key combination that will load the rebuild software and re-install Windows to a factory default. Use the name of the product and factory reset to find it on the net. It will be something like <ctrl+r> or something like that.
  14. Good Old Games

    I like to play the single player games of MOHAA, but recently I turned the "Windows Update" feature back on and it downloaded about 151 updates** to Windows 7 that I run. After that, MOHAA would not start up. It supposedly comes from a security update that is also used in Windows 10. It is DRM or something like that, that causes the old games not to work. Well, I was furious. Then I found out, on the web, that I am not alone. Hundreds of thousands of people had this happen to all kinds of old games. Some said it was put in there to make us buy new games, but I don't know. Others said it opened up Windows to attacks by hackers. All of this made no difference to me. I just wanted to play the game again. So I kept reading and trying all the work arounds that people had come up with but it never worked. Then I saw where several people mentioned this website called GOG (Good Old Games). They had taken these old games and revamped the code in the start-up and setup files to not do anything about the DRM system in Windows. That way Windows would not stop the playing of the games. So I bought MOHAA War Chest from GOG for $10. I downloaded it and it is playing just fine. There are some problems with the config files that won't allow certain buttons on the Numlock keypad to work which is aggravating because I have to use other buttons for reloading and selecting a weapon. After 20 years of playing in a certain location on the keyboard it is difficult to change. But I manage. I am just glad it is playing again. I noticed on their website that there are other games from 10 to 20 years ago that are available for download. The company is based out of Warsaw, Poland, but I found no problem with them at all. The VISA card was adjusted for EURO and there was no international costs for buying in Poland. If you like Wolfenstein, but it won't play, they have them all. Just thought I would post this here so others may find it useful. Smoke **I don't need Windows security updates because I use Malwarebytes® as my antivirus and it plugs all those problems by itself.
