  1. Microsoft annonced that they would stop supporting Windows XP on 31 Jan 2009 but was changed to 31 July 2009 which I think roughly is when Winodws 7 will be released. But Microsoft said that they would stop supporting Windows 2000 in 2003 but to this date they still provide security and hotfixes for the operating system which to me indicates Microsoft will continue to provide updates but won't provide support over the phone etc. Microsoft also annonced that retailers that provide Vista Business and Vista Ultimate Editions on there systems can also provide Windows XP free of charge to the custo
  2. Linux is a very good operating but isn't exposed as much as Microsoft for its faults and security problems. Maybe because this is free to use. Apple also boast about their operating system and how it doesn't get infected by viruses etc. Most people make viruses for Microsoft Windows because its the most common OS used by home users so it makes it easier for hackers to get hold of people bank details etc. It took me 5mins to create a simple code to corrupt Mac OS X file system. Linux is a good operating system if you are wanting to hack another computer or wireless network as most programmers
  3. Windows ME was an abhorration that never should have been created. Windows ME was released on 9th June 2000 - it was released after Windows 2000. As you all know Windows 2000 is more of Network Based - so Microsoft release ME for home users and was something like Windows 2000 but caused alot of users so many problems. My favourite fault in it was: Memory Management rating on a scale from 1 - 10 = -99999999999 It also is meant to have Multiuser capability but when you have more than one user account with different profiles it messes up the whole operating system. Its support for Windows 98 dri
  4. ip address is dynamic so its not possible to use ip address but their is a way to bypass this.
  5. easied way to enable (super) adminstrator account on all windows vista versions is by doing the following Go to Command Prompt in the start menu but before opening it, right click it and click Open With Administrator Privliages. Once command prompt has opened and you have typed in any passwords for the normal administrator account type in the following: net user administrator /active:yes This enables the master administrator account and does not contain any UAC.

  6. I use Windows Remote Desktop Connection alot in my house to connect to the other computers in my house but I was wondering if there was a way to connect to my PC's from a computer that is not connected to my house but only using Windows Remote Desktop Connection. All my computers are connected to a router and still havent found a way to bypass it as all computers ip address would be set to 192.168.0.x which is local host on the router so you can't type that in on Windows Remote Desktop Connection off my network. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. yeh i know that Windows 2008 is Windows Vista but windows 2008 is the server edition. I would prefer to use to Windows 2008 and just enable the servie that i need to use - its alot faster. but just now i would like to continue using windows xp on all my pcs apart from the pc that i do all my testing on.
  8. IT'S HAPPENING ONCE AGAIN - BUT THIS TIME IT HAS COST HOME USERS AND BUSINESSES A FORTUNE. As you have all proberly heard, Windows 7 is going to be released next year - so does it look as if history is repeating itself. When Windows ME was release there was so many problems with it the following year Windows 2000 was release. Then fastly Windows ME disappeared. Microsoft realised that they made a big mistake. Have they finally realised that Windows Vista is a big mistake. Many companies refuse to deploy Windows Vista on there systems as it is a major security risk. Do you blame them? Windows
