General Software Discussion / Re: The Best Browser? With Roboform?
« on: February 22, 2007, 01:42 PM »
To cut to the chase, all I really want is to place a single button on the navigation tolbar which opens in a new tab.  I don't want the bookmarks toolbar showing all the time.  One can move the whole of the bookmarks to another toolbar but not just one at a time.  It is just a matter of personal preference.

Thanks for your responses.  Any further ideas would be welcome.  I have searched extensions for this functionality and found a few work arounds but I thought there might be something especially designed to do this.

tinjaw, that worked for me, but what I would really like to do is put a button for the website on the navigation toolbar rather than the bookmarks toolbar.

Hello everyone. 

I have just reloaded Firefox after a few months using IE.  I had to reinstall Windows so it's taking me some time to get everything bach the way it was.

I am looking for an extension that will link a web address to a toolbar button ie I want to click on a button (icon) to open a new tab and go to or

Can anyone help me please?


I thought I might run more tests using a "virtual machine".  Now have I got this right - I would have to pay for VMWare, I know the player is free but can it be used for this; MS Virtual PC requires XP Pro (I have Home)?  Is there another alternative?



f0dder, do you use nLite?


Hello I'm back with a fresh installation of Windows.

The verification failure was right at the end of the burn process.

I reinsatted using nLite with some unattended options and RyanVM update pack.  The main problem was it installed a new copy of Windows in addition to the old one which is not what I wanted.  I thus reverted to the RyanVM XP+SP2+updates version and eventually got it sorted.

Both installs stalled at apoint where it was asking for a missing file "nhelper" but I was able to click through this and get the install started again.

The install also missed a .ocx file which I needed to run a program.  I was able to find it elsewhere on my hard drive and copied it over which worked.

The installs left two flash files in the WINDOWS.0 directory which I can't get rid of but I'll sort that later.

The other main impression I had was that the install was relatively slow compared with what I remember from previous occasions.  Might have had something to do with the larger slipstreamed install disk.

That's it.  I doubt I'll ever do this again as I suspect I will upgrade to Vista after it's had some history.

I did a RyanVM combining XP, SP2 and RyanVM updates.  Appears OK so far.

I then did an nLite disk combining XP, SP2 and some unattended options.  Came up with a verification failure message at the end.  Otherwise appears OK.

I then did an nLite disk combining the first one with RyanVM updates.  I watched the burn closely and it came up with a verification failure message again but I couldn't see where it actually does this verification.

I'll now try to use this last one to reinstall XP.  I'll see you when I'm finished and have reinstalled my video drivers, printer and so on.

If I don't return it's been nice knowing you and come on down MS Vista.

Happy New Year.


Well, johnfdeluca and all, I must have done something seriously wrong there.

I was impressed with the ease of setting up a slipstreamed disc and the amount of information built into the program.

However when I rebooted from the disc it did a lot of thinking and occasionally telling me things, only to stop at a screen with a small amount of garbled data on it.

To my surprise it doesn't appear to have damaged anything.  I must have done something wrong, perhaps in burning the disc.

I don't think I will try that again unless I can get an English language help document first.

I'll try the RyanVM solution now.


Thanks for the help.  I look forward to trying out your suggestions.  I did manage to slipstream XP and SP2 using the advice on site but I will try the other methods too.


Let's start at the very beginning.  It's a very good place to start.

In the early part of any instructions I have read it says Go to Start... Run... type cmd.  When I do that I get a cmd is not a valid Win32 application?  I also note that my computer does not have a system32 folder under c:\windows.  Only a system folder.

Any thoughts?  I'm running Win XP SP2 Service Pack and all critical updates.


I'm wondering if I can get some guidance from members as to a good guide to slipstreaming my original Windows XP with SP2 and susequent Windows XP updates, perhaps using nlite.

It doesn't have to be super simple but preferably reasonably thorough, especially with respect to nlite if included.

Any comments?

I didn't see the above warnings before I was also caught by this scam.  And boy didn't they come on all sweetie pie when they responded to my complaint, including the offer of two CD's ($150 value) for nothing and postage free.

I cancelled via their website and now all that is left to do is to carefully consider the words I am going to use when I reply.


I sent it to you.  Let me know if you didn't get it.


Carl, it closes today, US time, so we will have to move quick.


Carl, could you please PM me an email address for you and I will forward the email I got.

;D I like it.

I've always wondered.  Given the mass of it which exists in the North how come it the stuff doesn't float down to the bottom where it would then be down under and not on top?

Here I am.  From Kingaroy.

So did I.  Send me a PM and we may be able to work something out.  It will have to be first in first served I guess.



Hi I have found in google this thread, because I search also a protection for using in PC without Admin permission.
I have tryed also some application, yes JeffK, its true most of them need a admin right's!
Now I have read the whole thread and my english isn't so good to understand what actually you prefer.
Did you use now "Blowfish Advanced CS 2.57", or did you have found a other solution?

Thank you in advance for any answer!


Elena, my apologies for not replying sooner.

I never did find a solution which would work on another computer without admin rights.  However I do use Blowfish Advanced CS which I find very good for my purposes.


I decided to ask the Australian distributor of Ragtime for the price of version six.  He said, about $AU1,350.  I'm down at my work's medical centre now after falling off my chair.  I'll look elsewhere.

Very funny

It's funny to watch her if you don't put anything into the search box.  It's pretty hopeless as a search engine though.
