    Ports blocked but NO firewall/router?

    Windows XP, no router, no network. When I use laptop it's ok. So it sounds like something to do with the Windows on the desktop? and no, it's not Windows Firewall, that's disabled.

    Ports blocked but NO firewall/router?

    Hi, my computer seems to block all ports even though I have no firewall or router. I can do things like IRC and web browsing but I can't receive DCC in IRC or use file share programs. I can send with DCC though. When I do online port scans all ports seem to be closed/blocked. Any ideas?

    Safely Remove Hardware

    Bit off topic but my external HDD *always* says Windows is in use when trying to safely remove it? I just have to make sure it's not working and unplug it anyway.

    Intel's answer to AMD's HyperTransport?

    *bump* Anyone heard anymore? :confused: With Dell's decision about AMD it looks like Intel can't afford to delay or scrap their "CSI" and need to bring it out as soon as possible. Will Nehalem have CSI ~2008, or? :confused:

    Woodcrest 6/25/06 product availability, Cloverton Q1'07

    I think Clovertown is a glue job of two Conroes while Kentfield is native quad core.
