  • 1. CAble Modem/Speed
    I recently upgaded my service to a 20 Mbps cable speed through my provider. Realizing my old modem was only DOCSIS 1.0 compatible, I went out and got a new Motorola SB5101 modem than can handle DOCSIS 2.0 and upstream speeds of 30 Mbps. I can only seem to get a maximum speed of 7.2 Mbps. The cable company says an acceptable level should be around 12 Mbps, and after calls to their tech support line they cannot seem to figure out why I can't connect at a minimum 12 Mbps. They said the connection is excellent with no packet loss. I do have a router, but when I hook the cable modem directly to the computer it gives me the same max speed of 7.2 Mbps. I also turned off Zonealarm, my Avast Antivirus, Winpatrol, Windows Defender, and two other things that were running in my taskbar, with no changes. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what I can do or settings to change to get me to the higher speed? I am running Windows XP SP3, Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 128MB Nvidia 6600GT video card. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  • 2. Desktop theme - icon back color settings
    Once upon a time my desktop icons had no color background for names so the text appeared to be floating on the wallpaper, rather than on a solid color (Appearance/advanced/icon - both item and font color were grayed out) I only want a color back for selected items. Is there a reg key that will reset it? Thanks

  • 4. Icon Problems
    I recently installed Netscape 4.06 to see how my websites looked and worked on an old browser. It changed all my .htm amd .html icons to the communicator lighthouse and ships wheel. I went into folder settings\file types and reset them both to IE. IE now opens all .htm and .html files however I'm stuck with the lighthouse as an icon on everything in "my webs" and if I use IE for ftp instead of getting the "E" as an icon (for .htm and .html's) I get a blank "DOS" square with the file name correctly displayed. System restore couldn't deal with it. Any ideas appreciated, everything works, it's just annoying. Thanks Kevin
  • 5. How to Print a .gif file From a Batch File
    I have a .gif file which, when "dragged", to a printer prints correctly as an image. When I attempt to get the same result from a batch file using: "print /d:printername file." I get garbage output. When I omit the printer name argument I get a dialog asking several irrelevant things. What I want to do is accomplish the same result as the drag-and-drop operation did in a batch file (i.e. the correct printing of the .gif file as the image it represents).

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

I selected scandisk to scan each of my partitions while I was in Explore.  
Windows says it can only do it when it restarts so I shut down and let it 
restart.  Now the scandisk starts on the last partition first and when it 
gets to the next one it crashes and restarts the computer.  The whole thing 
starts all over again and keeps rebooting.  I need to stop this loop.  I can 
get access to the hard drive files using another windows install so can 
someone tell me what file to delete to kill the scandisk request???   I am 
using Windows XP Pro on my system. There must be a way to just kill the 
scandisk request before the Windows startup.

You might try putting your computer in Safe Mode and then selecting "Last 
Known Good Configuration" and see if this will get you out of the loop that 
you are in .Go to  http://www.**--****.com/

I had to do a deep scandisk con WIN XP HOME and it asked for next time

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.
now I can't reboot the system, it always write the CONTROL IS DONE.

shutdown the DEEP CONTROL in SCANDISK, but the system can only boot, and
start again the HDD CONTROL.

You must schedule the task under the Task Scheduler
and use an account that has sufficient privileges to do
the job. Try this in order to find out what's going on:

@echo off
echo %date% %time:~0:5% User=%UserName% Path=%path% > c:\test.log
net stop "Some Service" 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err

Now have a look at the two log files and all will become clear!
