There's a high chance I could find one, whether it be one of the University's or a friend's.  Can you give me an idea of the specifications of the computer needed (if it has to be windows or mac will work, etc..) and how long it will take?

This computer doesn't have a CD drive, so it doesn't matter if I can find a burner.......the flash drive, on the other hand, can be done.  Does it have to be empty, or no?  I have an empty '1GB' one, but in actuality it's only around 800-some MB.

Current News / Change in approach for Pale Moon web identification
« Last post by Bugbatter on October 22, 2014, 06:01:56 am »

For those of you using Pale Moon browser:
One of the impacting changes in v25.0 of Pale Moon has been the removal of the "Firefox" portion from Pale Moon's user agent.

Although this is generally considered in the developer and power user circles to be the right thing to do, because of the inherent problems attached to "lying about which browser you are", the problem of websites not using current-day capabilities detection methods and falling for "assuming capabilities based on an arbitrary ID string" is more widespread than anticipated. This includes big sites like Google, Apple's iCloud, Netflix, internal company sites, banking sites and even embedded web administration pages in routers :!:

This is one of the points where the interests of the general audience and the desired direction of software developers clash - and I will personally continue to work in the intended mode (non-compatible) with a small handful of workarounds on a domain-by-domain basis for the few problematic sites I visit, but will change the approach for a default installation of Pale Moon to include the "Firefox Compatibility" mode flag as enabled again (with a simple checkbox in Options to switch it off and on).

Current News / Microsoft Delivers First Update to the Windows Technical Preview
« Last post by Bugbatter on October 21, 2014, 06:32:40 pm »
Delivering on its promise to provide Windows Technical Preview users with frequent updates, Microsoft today provided the first new release of this pre-release Windows 10 version, build 9860. The new build includes Action Center (the Windows 10 notification center), new animations, and a way to more easily move apps between multiple monitors.

More details:
Do you have access to a clean computer with broadband connection and either a CD burner or a 1GB (or larger) thumbdrive?
Well, after some time of running in the clean boot, assuming that the clean boot remains in effect until otherwise changed, as I have restarted some during this time period, here are the results.

Search messed up again, though it wasn't as extreme as the previous mention, and it fixed itself without my interference.  I do have a picture.

My display driver crashed again, same message as previously mentioned, and I'm not sure if we're counting this amongst the problems, but I'll mention it anyways. 

The extreme issue, disappearing background and unresponsive explore, has not occurred again, but as previously said, I've had much longer intervals between issues.

Recently, I've noticed a plethora of 'broken image' icons while exploring on Chrome.  Not sure if it's important, but I remember reading that certain malware can cause it, so I figured I'd bring it up.

Also, there are two buildings on campus that always throw me off the internet before giving me problems reconnecting.  I don't think it's a problem on my side, because it's always those two buildings, but, again, I figured I'd mention it. 
Don't worry about my time, I actually have plenty of it. I am disabled and retired, so this is my "Work" . If you are willing there are a few more things we can do, it is always worth saving a computer if it is your only option. I know about running out of cash, and I also know in this economy, it may be a while.

Please download and install Speccy. Once that is done, then start it up. Once it is done analyzing, click on File and then on Save Snapshot. Save the snapshot to your desktop and then right click on it and select Send To and then Compressed (Zipped) Folder. Upload the log to the same place you uploaded to before.
I  am   just going to leave this junk alone and let you get back to helping people who really need it  I went to all the system restore points and one had 2 toolbar virus's in it and I don't want them back,  the rest say critical updates, and I will loose the updates, so I just put these stupid file cabinets in a folder, knowing they will be ok there

As for the games it seems something went wrong there not sure what, so I will wait till I get out the good computer out of hock, I just don't want to waste any more of your time, as I read on the forum people need your help with more pressing matters then this,  I want to thank you for doing all you have done though, you are really great people.    albert60    thanks again hoov   
We can get this one to work, but it is up to you. The restore point will be to one before you did the update and had the problem.

As for uninstalling active x, all we can do is uninstall Active X components.

Let me know when you have the system restore done.
