Is there a simple way I can password protect a htm web page I own? So you can't view it without entering a password I'd give you? It's hosted on godaddy if that matters.

Godaddy tech support might be able to help.

Do you want to protect one page on a site, or the whole site ?

I have a Segate 2TB Replica backup drive. It backed up all my files so I have them still after my computer crashed. I got my computer back up and have been restoring some of my files.
Here's my question................. I am going to buy a new computer soon. When I do I will transfer only the files I want to the new computer. After I do that, how the hell do I delete files from the backup drive that I don't want? It's got a lot of shit on it that I don't want to save. If I highlight a file and hit the delete key it won't delete. If I highlight a file then go to the "Menu" the delete option is "Grey-ed" out. Are they trying to save me from myself

Usually, backup drives like that come with a formating software. Did you get any software when you first bought it?

I usually use external drives as just a USB hard drive..

Plug it in, it shows up in windows as a harddrive, use it just like any other, unplug it.. If you're using the special back up software that came with it, then there's probably a lot more steps in there..

assuming you are using the software that came with`the drive just hit F1`and type delete into the search when the help opens.


Is anyone using newsgroups/usenet?

It came with a disk but the disk has "Only to be used for full system recovery" printed on it. I think I should have not installed their software and just used it like a big flash drive. I was just hoping that I could transfer only what I wanted to a new computer, delete the rest and then start new again with their automatic backup software.

I've created my own PDFs before, no problem.

Of course, I don't remember what software
I used to do it.

Did Adobe change their stuff around, so it won't
do that for free any more, or what ?

I want to create a new PDF, then drag and drop
pics and text. Sounds easy enough.

Not having any luck.

Someone got into my yahoo.com mail account today and sent a URL to every one of my Contacts.

The DHCP IP Table lists our three computers, the Tivo, and "Eat-My-Ipod-D" (MAC address 00:26:BB:AA:C7:30) - maybe I shouldn't stereotype, but I suspect that last one logged in through our wireless router.

Today I set a WPA password and when I tried to use the netbook, it asked for the password, then let me on. Is that all I need to do to keep neighbors and/or drive-by hackers off our network?

Thanks,

pretty much, yeah..

I normally set my router to broadcast openly, but require a WEP or WPA password and more importantly, only allow connections from specific MAC addresses.. it can be a pain sometimes to initially set up, and I often forget when I get a new device and can't figure out why it won't connect, but I feel better knowing that even if someone can hack an encrypted password, the router won't let em connect unless it knows their MAC..

Who/what assigns a MAC address to a device? I believe it's Comcast in my case that assigns the IP address, but do they or the device manufacturer (or the user) assign the MAC address?

MAC addresses are permanently assigned to a device during manufacture. It is something that will never change, kinda like a VIN number for hardware.

Can anyone suggest a good freebie CSS editor type program.

Needs to be intuitive, and WYSIWYG.

And free.



My sites are on Godaddy, I use their site building software,
but their templates are kind of limiting.
Obviously, I'm in over my head, but that is what software is for.

Should be able to do what you want.

Website Tonight is an extra-cost product that I don't pay for. Thanks for the idea, though.

And TPariah, thanks for the MAC explanation.

Maybe you have a higher level of hosting that includes it, but when I sign in and go to the WebSite Tonight page, I get this:
"Choose your plan
- Economy $4.99/mo
- Deluxe $8.99/mo
- Premium $14.99/mo" [three month minimum, cheaper on an annual plan]

". . . * Page-level password protection = Deluxe and Premium plans only"

I spent this weekend hooking up the old system, dumped a bunch of old programs no longer useful. I even finally got the SP2 update to go thru. So my ? is, Where can I find a good free security program that will still cover WIN XP home, version 2002, sp2? AVG won't. I dumped the avg 7 that was in it and tried to install the AVG 8.5 I have on this system, it loads then says, 'this system is no longer supported'. And only thing they offer now is AVG 2011,it won't work either. I don't understand why the 8.5 works on this comp, WINXP Pro version 2002, Sp2 and not that one.... wth?
Avast was on it and made it a slug.

I run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Spybot Search and Destroy on my computer, but I also have Vista as an operating system, so I don't know if these all work with yours... but I know they are very effective in protecting my system.

Since I installed both MS and Malwarebytes I have not been attacked with that stupid Windows Security bug that installs itself on your computer and takes over. I had it twice before and it's a bear to remove!

I have Malaware bytes and super anti spyware installed on it now. I just don't understand why I can't transfer my avg 8.5 to it and have it work. These are basically the same systems, just pro vs home.
I had avast on it, it took 5mins to come on. Soon as I took it out and restarted, it was up in less than 2. Maybe the new avast is faster, I just need it to scan pages, downloads like pics and keep the bugs out. No email, no music, no extras.
I'll keep looking ~

Does anyone have any experience with, or know anything about "WinBorg XP"?

All I know about it is that it's a pirated version of Windows XP that often times comes with pirated versions of about 20-30 different high end software programs (i.e. All Adobe products (photoshop and whatnot), dvd burning software, "anti-virus", and misc other things.. And when I try to google information, all I get is page after page of links to torrent and "warez" sites..

really? warez? god I haven't seen that word since aol hacking was "cool"...

Anyway, reason I ask is this:

My girlfriend had a friend clear a ton of cookies and crap from facebook programs off of her system because it was seriously bogged down.. I suspect she clicked some dumb links because she's not tech-savvy and just didn't know better..

He installed this WinBorg crap and when we moved the Riverside and I set her system back up, I saw it and said, "Hell no, that is not going on the same network as MY computer, I paid for a legitamate copy of XP Pro, I'll install that on there instead."

So I saved her photo's and documents, a total of about 200MB worth of stuff, threw one of my old hard drives in it (her drive was like 60gig, I had a 250gb sitting on a shelf..), formatted in and did a fresh install of legitamate Windows XP Pro..

At some point in the last 24 hours, WinBorg reinstalled itself

I opened the Event Viewer and it's missing a LOT of events..

I talking it looks like this:

03/01/2011 2:36:18 PM

to the next event reading:

15/05/2011 12:31:31 AM


Not only did it lose 2 months worth of event viewer data, it erased ALL backup save points..

that SCREAMS virus to me.. but I don't know shit about this WinBorg crap.. My solution is to reformat the drive, fuck backing up ANY of the images or documents, and re-install legit XP..

Anyone have any ideas or knowledge?

Hey folks, some where there is a link posted here that is infected. It's not affecting VR itself, but another member here just let me know it infected them sometime last week. Their tech traced it back to a link he clicked on here, says need to be weary of c/p'ing links to some of these funky sites. I know we all find funny sh!t in strange places and want to share but be careful what you follow. If you get redirects or pics with funky symbols instead of pictures, unplug , restart to safe mode and start scanning asap!

And for those in facebook,
You can't find out who saw your profile. You won't see what you'll look like in the future. You won't know what that man saw when he walked in on his daughter. There are no free iPads and you can't see the video of Osama's death... Not on Facebook. Please stop clicking the spam links and exposing yourself and friends to virus risks. Thank you.


Just beware~


btw, Steve is aware of the member being hit, but his scanners are secure so it's leading to some where else~
