    Word of caution...make sure you get the correct one:
    It's called Spybot Search & Destroy and it's found here:

    http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html
    (it's free)

    There are imitations with somewhat the same name on the Internet that either does the same job but requires you to pay, or worse, contains spyware themselves.

    Happy computing

    guy i faced a similar situation as 299 on my client PC.. i tried all safe mode and last known good configuration after pressing F8 the computer still restart.. can i conclude that the HDD is crash ? cau i can;t use chkdsk to see if this hdd got any bad sector unless i install on another pc..

    Or is there any chances that the OS causes safe mode and last known gd configuration not able to work?

    When you pressed F8, were you presented with a menu that allows you to choose from many different options, such as to boot into Safe Mode?

    Or are you saying you indeed chose "Safe Mode", and when you did that, it immediately rebooted the PC?

    ================

    My guesses to your problem would be:

    1) User has bought hardware from a store (and its driver) which
    ........ a) somehow made Windows misbehave
    ........ b) isn't made for that version of Windows but user has forcefully installed it into the computer anyways

    2) Something's very wrong with your OS...a file(s) that maintain the proper working condition of Windows itself happened to be missing, or corrupt.

    What a computer technician would usually do is to either:

    1) Find the root cause of the problem and disable/remove it using various XP diagnostic tools -- if the cooperative user knows what he did before something went wrong with his PC

    2) Head to last resort: repair the Operating System, or reinstall.

    ================

    Granted that I -- and any computer experts here -- care about all of your PC's, we'd recommend you seek professional help if you are not comfortable toying around with the underlying workings of Windows, and the tools used to troubleshoot the problem (eg. Safe Mode, DOS, XP diagnostics, etc...)

    once in a while i've been getting this display 'no video input' on my screen even my pc is on. i have to do a force shut down resulting my HD to crash twice. once i sent it to a shop who can't seem to find the problem, it behaved well in the shop. right now, i got this problem haunting me again. i have the habit of leaving my pc on 24/7 even i'm not around. just now when i returned home going to the pc, it was in the usual stand by mode, all i have to do is to give the mouse a shake to wake the whole thing up but to no avail. the pc was still on. i off and on the monitor and it came back to life. about 5 minutes later, the screen went blank. did another off/on and the screen was on but only for about 10 secs. tried my best to do a proper shut down and restarted the com and up to now, my monitor just show me 'no video input'.

    anyone knows what could be wrong? AGP card problem? i forgot what kind of Nvidia card i'm using but it's about 2 years old. or could it be my Philips 17" 170S LCD monitor problem?
    help appreciated.

    yeah i chosen safe mode n last known gd configuration.. once it goin appear in xp loading screen the pc will start to restart .. i chk with them if they install any new driver or software n they said no .. jus told me that it happen when they workin during 8pm it pc suddenly had tis problem ..


    so from ur conclusion is OS problem ..

    thanks anyway .. i still learning on troubleshooting on hardware .. which isn;t my pro ..

    Nah, think it's just the nature of the Internet and the "spamsters" that roam it.

    Try to expose yourself less to the internet "world" by not revealing too much about your online identity (ie don't disclose e-mails openly on pages, only sign up for stuff or join groups that you absolutely feel is important to you, etc.)

    "Leave a small footprint about yourself" -- that's the word that I like to use and am trying to remember when I go online.

    As for your Grand Theft Auto install, are you installing via a CD-ROM?
    If it's not a CD-ROM but an installer on your hard drive that you are trying to run, have you tried running it "as Administrator?"

    chances are that your DVD drive is dead.

    Err...it's still in the Control Panel all along....

    Start Menu
    --> Control Panel
    --> Regional and Language Options
    --> "Keyboards and Languages" (tab)

    Click the [Change keyboards...] button.

    When the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box comes up, click on the [Add...] button.

    Another dialog box should come up with a whole list of languages, including the various Chinese input languages that you can pick from.

    Let me know if you don't see em.

    P.S.: This applies to the ability to insert Chinese characters, not to change the user interface language. (ie. Menus, taskbars, dialog boxes)

    If you see a message appear at the bottom right side of your screen as you plug in your thumbdrive that goes something like "USB device not recognized", chances are the circuitry in the thumbdrive has malfunctioned (entire thumbdrive spoilt). That is, even if you're sure it's plugged in and seated nicely into the USB port of the computer.

    If you don't see that, but you do see that Windows has assigned your thumbdrive a drive letter under "My Computer"...for instance, drive [G:] etc, try to access it. Are you able to go in or do you see an error?

    I only know the booting part
    As long as you have a BIOS or EFI (read: newer computer) that supports USB booting off of a hard drive.

    Operating-system-wise: I'm not so sure. But it's most probable that you have to install the operating system of your choice first -- doing this while it's plugged inside your computer via SATA or PATA/IDE, or if you have VMware to perform this neat trick.

    Like choosing a bike, the first question you will need to ask yourself is, what do I plan to use my next computer for? Net surfing? Work? Games?

    From the specifications listed above, this is a PC with moderate performance, more than enough for daily tasks, and enough to be used for slightly powerful games.

    Did I mention that at $1500, it's cheaper than other Core 2 quad PCs out there too?

    any recommendation for parts for a 1k rig?
    basically my aunt tasked me to build one for her, but i'm out of action from SLS for some time.

    mainly use for light gaming. kids playing maplestory.
    and light usage like MS office and net surfing.
    with option for future upgrades as well.
