ketchuplover: Thought a while aout that and am still not sure what to think. Because it feels right what you say, but I am asking myself how to handle for example books. Lets say you sold a book about chess strategy one day and twenty years later you do not agree with yourself any more. Do you have the right to make all owners of your book put it into the dustbin?
What is with newspapers and any printed item in the worlds archives?
MadMonkey: did you try a different software? You should be able to export your office-files into a .pdf for example and then open and print it using the adobe reader (or better adobe acrobat if you have this commercial software). And then, of course, you should try it on both printers :-D
if the problem isnt solved or at least concretized, i would suggest also to check if the paper tray is adjusted correctly...

The IPad is not a laptop.
And it is - right now - poorly equipped!
There is no camera, no card-reader and not even an USB-Slot in it!
Right now, its just an object of prestige, an adults toy.
As a professional creative, i am using apple products for over 25 years now,
and i agree in the superb quality of the hardware, and the better stability of the operating system.
But as far as the IPad is concerned, i can tell you all to wait at least one year from now on if you think to buy it.
It wont push any laptop of the cliff (neither apple nor non-apple laptops) as long as the multimedia-abilities are that poor.
The apple leaders dont put a memory-card-reader inside to avoid storage-extension. It comes with a poor amount of GB though. If you, for example, simply want to import the pics of your non-apple digital camera, you need to buy additional adaptors cause there is no serial USB slot. You cant use videoconferencing cause there is no camera..... .
The touch-screen-technique is innovative and enjoyable. Not more.

MadMonkey:I am using Avira AntiVir personal (the free version) for a couple of years. And i am happy with it. The update-server didnt work well for 2 or three months, but thats time ago and now everything works well.
you may try an uninstaller like "ashampoo uninstaller" or "absolute uninstaller" (just google for it). its mysterious, indeed, that it occurs on a new drive, but with uninstaller-software you can not make something wrong!

rabbitoid:why not test a virus? on a virtual system??? ;-)
By the way: any recomendations for the following task: after installing a fresh system (xp pro sp3), all the drivers and a couple of daily used programs i want to save the whole thing in order to make it easy to re-install the complete thing.
I found "paragon hard disk manager" but even the trial-version does not allow me to do this. Are there other recommended programs?
(V):That sounds interesting and ill go and prove it - as i experienced the bug on an xp- _and_ a vista-computer... browsing through all the firefox-chatrooms i meet some people who have the same probs... but one user even under linux... this would mean the bug has nothing to do with the MS updates - but well, ill give it a try anyway!

Hello everyone - i experienced an inability to connect with the internet after upgrading to the latest firefox-version and the same happened to a couple of other users here on Lanzarote. The Internet Explorer still worked "fine" (the word "fine" shouldnt be used cause after working with firefox for a couple of years the work with IE is like an essential downgrade...) and in Firefox the warning "internet connection does not seem to be working" appeared. Turning firewalls off didnt help (this was suggested by the official firefox-help-site), only deinstalling the browser and installing an earlier version.
Somebody experienced similar things and/or knows whats behind this?

Strange thing, now happened with several USB-Storage-Devices:
Normally after connecting the USB device, the autoplay-option (if used) shows a window asking you how you want to open the content.
For some time now, on various computers with vista or XP, some of those devices aren't recognized any longer as devices with content, but the Operating System asks, which program i want to use to open the _file_.
But as if there are a couple of files on the device, this is not what windows should ask.
Formatting the device solves the problem, as well as right-clicking it and choosing "explore". But what i wanted to see is a possibility of resetting the device without formatting it (its okay for some GB sticks, nut not really helpful for a 250gig external hard disk ) or - of course - changing some registry-values (i already tried some, but this way it does not seem to work).
Binabik: a firewall is a useful thing... . turning the windows-firewall off means you do not have the control over the progs using the inernet - including possible "bad" ones. its a good idea for sure to install another one, but step by step. first you should solve your virus-scanner-problem. as soon as you got one working fine on your computer, you may try to install a firewall, too. if zoneAlarm didnt work well, try for example keryo... .
Binabik: Its good to use an anti-virus-prog (e.g. AVG, Kaspersky, Norton, BitDefender etc.) AND a firewall (ZoneAlarm, Keryo etc.). WIndows XP and vista both have an integrated firewall. People say that this integrated firewall is causing conflicts, so it can be turned off in the security-center of the xp-control-panel. If your conflicts with AVG continue, the program should be uninstalled completely. You might use a registry-cleaner (e.g. RegCleaner 4.3) to erase all AVG entries within the registry in order to make sure there will be no conflicts any longer.
itunes isnt able to find the songs on the path that was defined before. there is a function in itunes to search for all available data on your disks ans put it into the library. this could solve your problem - if the songs can be found somewhere on your disk(s).
i am running out of suggestions now. just one more hint: depending on the mainboard it may take up to a whole year until the power/data gets lost after the removal of the battery. maybe you can find a nice place on your shelf to store that laptop for the next months...
in fact, ive got no idea why this may happen, except firefox being damaged in certain way (probably by using it too frequently, it simply wants to retire in honour), but obviously there are no system- or hardware-problems on your CPU (why should IE run that quickly if you had some...) and as it seems to be a firefox-problem i would recommend to deinstall and reinstall, maybe even an older version of firefox.
