@ AcroLiminator
Will you please consider to add option to change hotkeys? For seven years I have been using Ctrl+Shift+S to activate my screensaver - I am not likely to change that.

@ Loki15
I think you are underestimating AcroDictionary. It is a very fine glossary, but should really be a part of large all-round Dictionaries / Encyclopedias / Glossaries. I know I would love to have AcroDictionary as an integrated part of my Babylon! Please have a look at Babylon Glossary Builder. It would be such a waste to allow your fine glossary not to be used.

Head up, Walt, you have done a very fine job on AcroDictionary, don't let it be wasted! Go another mile, please!

Thanks, Phil, for taking the time to supply these links. I should say that I really like the look of these text icons, but I don't think I am going to use them myself, because I remember pictures, places and stuff, but it is seldom that I can remember a name.

Yes, I know what you mean, Brandon. My kid sister grew up here in Copenhagen, when I was raised in the other end of the country. When I joined my Copenhagen part of the family as an young adult, I immediately started to explore the "big" city, and very soon I knew more about it than she did, though she had fifteen years in advance.

Yes, it is beautiful. I think it is so beautiful that I am trying not to see it too often (but only during startup), in order not to get so fed up that I wouldn't appreciate it anymore - if you know what I mean?

I cannot give you the widescreen version, because Webshots then will force me to let it replace the one I have, but here is Shafts of Light, Arizona, 1600x1200:

Wow; Dirhael, this surely must have taken you quite some time to do!

I don't think I will be able to reproduce it at my desktop, because I am using Earth Watcher which is not a common wallpaper, but places itself on top of the actual wallpaper from Webshots - (so I would expect it to hide some buttons as well, but I have not yet tried this, so I really don't know - we will se later on) - :

I don't understand this. I have tried again and again to download this 'WUD' setup, but every time I am redirected (?) and getting http://wud.jcarle.com/Dow....ashx?type=prog&id=23 which is similar to the front page "about": http://wud.jcarle.com/Default.aspx

What?  tellme

Edit: Strange; I got the file the first time I used Firefox instead of Maxthon. Problem (sort of) solved.
5309  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: download all updates for XP in one go? on: September 01, 2007, 05:42:29 PM
.. I actually prefer a small utility called "Windows Updates Downloader". ...
Looks good, Dirhael. Thanks for the link - I'm checking it out. ...

To my understanding one page is saying I will need a fourth party program i.e. nLite to install these WUD (Windows Updates Downloader) downloads, but another page is saying that I don't.

So I ask you guys: Do I need anything more than WUD  to install / update?   tellme

I know it has been mentioned here before (but not in this thread)

Startup Delayer (http://www.r2.com.au/soft...age=2&show=startdelay) gives control over the startup process - you can delete entries you don't want, add new entries and also time the startup of applications so that you can introduce a delay during startup if you have a lot of apps trying to load all at the same time.

 thumbs up Yes, Startup Delayer is soo easy to use:
Click the green plus, navigate to the program file, click OK. End of story!

Edit: Startup Delayer is offering: "Pause Startup Delayer until this application has closed"
5312  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why choose XP PRO (NT 5.1) over XP Home? on: September 01, 2007, 02:54:39 PM
Hmmm; wonder why he said the other thing. Well, maybe it was a mutual misunderstanding; we were talking about several operating systems. But we were not talking about Media Center (MC). Do you think XP Home will consider a MC installation CD to be an upgrade, and accept it? Maybe the reason my XP is unstable is not a hardware issue but a registry thing, so maybe I can save the 400 apps from my (unstable) Home constellation by upgrading to MC - hoping it will become stable this way??

So, do you think XP Home will consider a XP Media Center installation CD to be an upgrade, and accept it (of course keeping what is already installed)???
5313  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Why choose XP PRO (NT 5.1) over XP Home? on: September 01, 2007, 01:18:33 PM
Thanks a lot for the link to Paul Thurrott's winsupersite - I had long forgotten about it.

In the end of the article it says that it is posible to upgrade from Home to Pro. My dealer said it isn't. What do you say; can I upgrade my XP Home version to XP PRO ??
5314  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Why choose XP PRO (NT 5.1) over XP Home? on: September 01, 2007, 12:24:21 PM
I was running Windows 2000 Professionel for more than six years, so when I was looking for a new PC  I said to the dealer that I of course wanted a PRO version again; this time XP PRO. But the only reasonable priced PC he had was OEM installed with a XP Home version, and any Pro version would be a full price disc on top of the >PC + OEM XP Home< price! I didn't have the money he asked for, so I said Go Home...

During the following six months I have eagerly been waiting for the weaknesses of my XP Home to show up, but have not yet found any (except that my PC is unstable, but that may be some hardware problem), and now I am wondering why any private single home user would choose XP PRO (32-bit NT5.1) over the much cheaper XP Home?

What am I missing, that I have not yet discovered?  tellme

PS: The homepages for XP have almost been deleted, they are nothing but adds for Vista!
- can you even buy a new XP disc?

Wow; 9.6 MB - this new baby sure is "not tiny"! However, the first time I clicked this link I was taken to Windows Live which required me to tell when I was born and where I live, so it should not come as a surprise if someone will cancel the download, leaving you with fewer testers...

-

I have been puzzled by the buttons EasyChat and EasyHold, and more, but so far I have refused to push those buttons, because I know no programs with such names. Now I see that your new DC signature is linking to those programs, but maybe you should tell a little here about these apps? Edit: I for one will never follow a link unless some text first made me interested.

@ Carol, Oh, I would really like to have a Pioneer drive... oh yes! However, the  DVD RW  that came with the machine half a year ago, is (was) of reasonable quality (though made in China). I guess I will save my money and go for a new duo/quad core PC.
5317  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 29, 2007, 09:33:05 AM
No, at least five persons have to block a mail before it is blocked in general. And then they may still recieve it, but in the SPAMfighter folder, so they can accept it (or not) if they want to. You cannot block me from mail I want to recieve.
5318  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 29, 2007, 01:30:35 AM
You can bet that I will let you all know....   Cool

But it all begins with repairing the CD drive. A CD "exploded" while playing, and there are thousands of little pieces of the disc preventing the door from closing - and so far I haven't had the courage to open the tower, in order to fix it.
5319  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 06:36:19 PM
I was merely referring to the installation CD's folder, C:\WINDOWS\I386
- which I used to reinstall SP2

CPU Name : Intel Celeron D (Cedar Mill-V)
Vendor String : GenuineIntel
Name String : Intel(R) Celeron(R) D CPU 3.33GHz

Thanks, Darwin, for hoping  Wink
5320  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 01:44:33 PM
Yes, you are right, Darwin, your memory serves you well. I bought this machine February the 24'th, but from day two I was disappointed with it. However, I expected that I had installed too many programs for the memory to handle (150 apps on the first day), so I delayed my reactions, thinking that the problems would go away when I purchased and installed some more RAM. As time has gone bye, I have come to realize that memory alone will not do the trick. There is something basically wrong with either the hardware or the i386 (reinstalling XP didn't help), but I haven't got a clue of what it may be - I can only tell about the symptoms. The situation has of course been worsed by my poor understanding of secure behaviour for Windows users. You know; "do you really want to delete this backup file?" and such. Well, I didn't actually delete a backup file, but the principles are just about the same, I guess; very often I am too hasty to act, and too slow to react (sorry): too slow to undo, and such.
5321  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 12:19:52 PM
One other thing I did when I got worried about security/fed up with spam was switch from Outlook Express to Outlook. It's not to bad a learning curve and I could never go back now. I dimly recall you talking about having switched in the other direction, Curt, ...

Yes, I have been forced to replace my darling Outlook with Outlook Express (my Office 2003 will not repair / re-install) until I manage to repair this XP or get a new PC.

I have been told that the auto-preview is a security risk?? For this reason I only had the feature enabled in subfolders (in Outlook), and don't use it in Outlook Express. But I do miss it, along with a lot of other features...

As for newsgroups, I was using RSS Popper in Outlook, so I never needed Outlook Express.

The problem is that a number of legitimate and useful newsletters are sent from different email addresses for each issue

- that would of course be a problem. Only, I have never heard of such newsletters. Are they for some closed circle only? Sorry for asking, it really is no concern of mine.
5322  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 11:18:46 AM
  - don't waste your time trying to stop this at the source as you will be wasting your time (sorry, I realise that this sounds defeatist!) -

I "SPAMfighter-blocked" the spam mail (from the initial post in this thread), and then tried to send a mail from me to me. The first one was blocked by Outlook Express (OE), so I told OE to mark mails from me, and then I send off another mail from me to me. This one went all through. But I will of course have to wait and see if "he" (the guy I wanna hurt) ever sends me another mail (from "me"), before I know if the trick has worked the way I am hoping.

Thank you all for the advices!  thumbs up
5323  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 10:55:00 AM
I don't know what app you are referring to, Carol, but it is not SPAMfighter. Once you have clicked "allow", the sender will never be deleted no matter what others may think of it.
5324  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I wanna hurt this guy! on: August 28, 2007, 10:33:35 AM
To classifiy SPAMfighter as "useless", is not being serious.

SPAMfighter is of course just another anti-spam filter -
(and I really don't know or care what technique it is using):

Quote
When a new e-mail arrives, it is automatically tested by SPAMfighter. If it's spam, it will be instantly moved to your SPAMfighter folder. ... >

 - but SPAMfighter is firstly and most important a community:
Quote
> ... If you receive a spam mail that is not detected, click on a single button, and the spam mail is removed from the rest of the 3.739.694 SPAMfighters in 217 countries in seconds.

- and if the anti-spam filter is saying "this mail is spam" and you think 'not', then it is extremely easy for you to get the mail anyway: just open the SPAMfighter folder and have a look! Many of the apps recommended here will not give the user any chance to evaluate the mail that has been rejected by the filter - and I find such behavior unacceptable.

Darwin, your post confused me. I have Secunia running ("Secunia PSI is monitoring your software"), and I also have 1 'end-of-life' program installed. Secunia will tell me when I ask it, but it has never been "botherin me to uninstall".
