  1. Anyone grab Wordpress 3 yet and get it going? So far I don't see all the fuss with the upgrade. I upgraded my blog and things are looking fairly normal still. Anyone having issues with any plugins so far?
  2. Yeah, you cannot format your system drive. it would delete the format.exe command your using to do the format! (and the GU you launched the format from). I think the worst thing you will find is if it's the physical drive that is giving you issues, a close of the drive is not going to help unless you image it and put it onto a new drive.
  3. Now that is pretty awesome. 50 Gigs! LOL that's crazy... Never thought you could install that much software on a SINGLE BOX!!! LOL... my boss is gonna freak when he see's this lol.
  4. you and about a million other people.... nice story tho! google/google-voice-invite-request-t95844.html
  5. I think I would play with ie9 but I'm actually having a good time recently with Chrome. I know it's google but, it's actually really nice....

    Hero's Thread

    oh great. Silar is do powerful now so what do they do? They make him a GOOD GUY. Yeah... that makes sense. Sorry to say but that show is heading down the tubes.
  7. I'm guessing yes.... They just released an update for Word 2010 so I'll bet another one for outlook is coming (i hope).
  8. Yup yup.... I've got the same issue as well.. Will just need to upgrade LCS to OCS 2007.
  9. Yeah, i've seen that before but only after like 10+ people in under 5 minutes. I think it's a way for Facebook to keep spammers from sending friends to all 400+ million people using the service. I think it's actually a good thing.
  10. Heya Rusobr2! I've tried every search engine but I can't come up with anyone who is having the same issue. So with that said, what I would do is go grab Revo or another Uninstall utility here: hardware-software/java-problems-t95758.html?hilit=uninstall#p96586 And do an uninstall of the Bing Bar. Be sure to reboot as well. You might also want to run CCleaner also after using Revo then reboot. This should clean everything up. Once that's do, try the install again. Also, make sure you are downloading the right installer (32-bit vs. 64-bit). Let me know if this helps!

    is there a new heros tonight?? it seems to be picking up.
  12. Groove master sweet! I'm just a contributor :(
  13. Ok, you should be able to get into your local group policy by clicking the Start button, and type gpedit.msc Now, navigate to the following location: Local Computer Policy -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Defender Once you Click Windows Defender on the Tree on the LEFT, on the right you should get all the Group Policies. Look for "Turn off Windows Defender". I assume that's the key you need to set it so that it's Disabled or Not Configured. Here's what it says when I clicked on it: Keep us updated here!
  14. So you need to make sure your DNS is able to resolve your VPN Host server. If your connecting remote (Off network over the internet) your home computer will obviously not be able to resolve DNS for the VPN HOST server if your forwarding the posts through your firewall and into your Windows 7 host on your internal work network. What I do is my firewall at home is configured with DNS This allows me to resolve my VPN client to my home firewall. My home firewall then forwards the packets to my Windows 7 box which is hosting the VPN host/connect STUFF etc.. From there I'm good to go. Now, in regards to your VPN connection not being able to browse locally... This is normally called "Split Tunneling" which is the default for most VPN systems. Most security corp dudes dont like you to be able to connect to the VPN work network and browse the internet at the same time. To limit this they dont allow you to surf your local network or the internet the same time you connect into work with the VPN. By default Windows 7 actually is configured to ALLOW split tunneling so I'm surprised your having problems. Are your machines that your running VPN on attached to a windows domain? To verify that Split Tunneling is in fact ENABLED for Windows 7, you need to login as Administrator to the PC and type gpedit.msc into the start menu. This will open the local group policy editor. From there navigate to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Connections -> Windows Firewall. Now under the settings (RIGHT) windows, be sure the setting: "Route all traffic through the internal network" is set to "Not Configured" or "Disabled". Here's what it says regarding this setting: So I think that's the setting for this. I'm guessing this has become enabled on your PC somehow???
  15. Tested this with my iPhone. Here's what I found. 1 - Created a new contact. a - Entered first, last and company b - Clicked Save Company Exchange Outlook Updated 2 - a - Added Mobile number b - Clicked Save Company Exchange Outlook Updated Wow... I had no idea it was updating on the FLY. That's suprising.... I tried to keep this from happening by turning off "PUSH" under the Mail settings however even this didn't fix it. My guess is your out of luck. Sorry man.

    VPN on Windows 7

    I've been watching this thread and unfortunatly I'm not any help. Sorry paul. I have a laptop and a PC at work. I'm plugged into the same network switch. It's working for me no problem...... Sorry man
  17. lol - speak of the devil: ... er_attack/
  18. Saw it on the Seattle Times - local MSFT paper: ... cation=rss At least you can install the boxed copies on 3 computers. kinda sounds like FAMILY pack I guess...
  19. blah blah blah!! and you call yourself a geek!!!!
  20. Yup same issue. I thought the MAC connection might have been the answer cause we have a few MAC's in the office. I had the guy send me emails in plain text, rich text and HTML and all 3 mails crash me. I then started crashing from another co-worker. She's running office 2007 sp2 w/windows 7. Cant open any of her emails either. GOING CRAZY!!
  21. Ok.... I lied It "is" possible. I just played with it and here's the story: PERFORM THESE STEPS ON THE REMOTE MACHINE Step 1: Copy the following code into a txt file and rename it to LOCK.vbs. Personally copied the file to c:\scripts\lock.vbs however it can live anywhere. On Error Resume Next Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") objShell.Run "%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation" Step 2: Create a shortcut for lock.vbs on your desktop Step 3: Assign a shortcut key(s) for the file. In my example I used CTRL+SHIFT+L FYI - I stole the code from the scripting guys blog: ... cript.aspx Enjoy GoLfie!
  22. You can look but it's not possible. You cant lock the screen with a shortcut key in Windows 7 (not out of the box anyway).
  23. I've not even installed it yet. I don't like beta software personally... not when I need to get stuff done anyway. That being said, there were a crap load of updates released yesterday. Were you having the issues before patch Tuesday?
  24. Bluehost isn't that bad if you have just a small site. Anything big shouldn't be on a shared service anyway.
