    Nasty New Malware - Anyone seen this one?

    Danit, I have this right now!!!!! I googled "Fable 2 The Bargain" and clicked one of the links. The next thing I know, my printer started making sounds like it was being activated and my computer restarted. Now, I have an annoying red X in my tray telling me that "windows" has found spyware, it...

    Is it difficult to secure a MySQL database?

    I wouldn't say so. Just grant each user only the access they require, such as SELECT, INSERT, etc. If you want to go even farther, only allow the user to connect from a specific host, instead of just using wildcards. Set your firewall to only allow connections to mysql from the outside IP that's...

    Where is the cookies.sqlite file in Firefox?

    Well, mine is in "C:\Documents and Settings\Jay\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\breyuxok.default\". But the folder in the Profiles folder, aswell as your user folder, will be named differently.

    How do websites identify you? (besides ip)

    Flash cookies are probably exactly how they do it. I'd bet money on that. Southern Bank has something similar, where if you select that this is a private computer, it will remember that until format, no matter how many times my public IP changes (it's changed a few times, unfortunately) or I...

    Oh Mr. MSG, where'd ya go? (MSG command doesn't work)

    I would be too but I don't know how it would, without a service running to receive messages from the network.

    Oh Mr. MSG, where'd ya go? (MSG command doesn't work)

    Well, if the services are disabled, it will say so. This is saying that the command is not found. Would I be able to copy it from my XP machine (which has it) and it work right and receive messages from other network machines and all?

    Oh Mr. MSG, where'd ya go? (MSG command doesn't work)

    Well, I've read that 'net send' was replaced by 'msg'. Well, on my Vista machine, I can't find 'msg'. It says that it's not recognized as an internal command, blah blah blah. Is it not included in some distributions of Vista? The comp in question is running Home Premium.

    I'm going to keep this short and simple. I have two servers here, both Windows Server 2003. One has been settup with the role of VPN server, and the other has been set up to connect to it. The client is using the regular windows client, the one that's set up by going to network connections, add...

    Help! Added a switch to my router and now all traffic is being sent to the switch.

    This probably doesn't help, but I have the same router, WRT54g and I bought that same switch for the exact same reason. :) I have my computer and my xbox hooked up to it. Both of them are static ips for various reasons but they work with dhcp. I'm not sure why your having this problem but mine...

    Social Networking

    I hate myspace. I use facebook. But everybody at my school seems to use myspace so I just have to learn to like it. People put some much flash and flashing things on their page that it would lock up my old 256mb-o-ram computer. My suggestion would be to use php, just because I find it easy to...

    Making network think router is a computer?

    Couldn't you just turn off the wireless? They said you couldn't have a wireless network but just because you have a router doesn't mean it's wireless. They probably caught the other guy by walking through the halls and scanning for networks.

    Strange Problem - Can't connect to some sites...

    Can't find site? That means that it couldn't take the domain name and turn it into a ip address. In other words, it is a problem with your dns settings. Try another server, like open dns or the easy to remember '' '' '' servers.

    Have a server at and want

    True dat. I don't know about his situation but I couldn't bookmark my ip since I have to access it from different computers at my school's network and else where. That's why dns comes in handy for me. I assumed that he knew that he didn't need dns. But we all know what assuming does.:rolleyes:

    Have a server at and want

    Wait a minute stonecat, maybe you could help me understand this better. I thought cnames pointed to A records. Why would you use cnames in this situation? I've always used A records for stuff like this. I would understand if you had multiple names pointing to your home ip but for just this one....

    Have a server at and want

    I'm not the best with it either but you're gone need an A Record. Make it and point it to your home ip address. This will work assuming you have a static ip address.

    Hosting files on my computer with limited access to router

    Haha, I know what your going through. My dad's satelite internet has this problem. They must block ports in the NOC or something. Even connectly directly to the modem, I can't download from limewire or anything. It sucks. And now, they have a limit thingy where he only has so much bandwidth a day.

    wireless network keep dropping signal

    Quick question on the same topic. Will changing the channel stop the microwave from making the connection drop? The microwave is right in between the router and my laptop and every time I cut it on, it makes the connection drop and it won't return till I stop the microwave.

    Q-Flash won't read floppy

    It must be the floppy disk. The other computer can't format it. It just ways windows can not complete the format. I'll have to go find another. Those things are so ancient, I don't have but one around that I know about. EDIT: Nope. I got a new floppy, formatted it, put the files on it, and it...

    Q-Flash won't read floppy

    I just got finished building a computer and hooking it up. Everything runs smooth (a little louder than my dell but still smooth) and I went in the Q-Flash menu of my Gigabyte DS3L rev. 2.0. I hit update bios from disk, it acted like it was doing something, then said "Invalid MBR" or something...

    Which MOBO do I use?

    That's the mobo I'm getting with that processor. And I don't know about the memory but if it doesn't, I'm in trouble cause I ordered 800. But I think it will still take it. You can probably only use a max of 1066.
