Thanks again!!

Question: What's up with the AVATAR's? Looks like they've been clipped.

Many thanks,
Mike

Not sure what you mean by clipped. The new version of the forum may be making them all the right size. There also may be a glitch in the software causing it but i''m sure the admin team will take a look at them.

I'm only seeing 20% of each Avatar when I look at each of them on this page.
The top 20% only the rest is white as the background, so 80% of the complete avatar is missing.
This is the same with yours and mine. This is nothing new because it was first noticed on my Sept 22 message to you.
Thanks and have a pleasant Sunday!!

Hmm strange as i just checked my avatar I have saved on my hd against the one that is showing and they are the same. I'm not sure what that is caused by but it must be a setting of some sort on your side. I will check into it and see what I can find.
Sent a request for update to other techs and admins.

What browser are you using IE or FireFox?
If IE what version 6,7 or 8?
If IE please check to see if it is possibly running in Compatibility Mode
If all the above is fine then please try changing the skin you use here at GTG to either Clean Cut or IP.Board
Check the bottom left of window to change the Forum skin you are using.

If using IE another suggestion is to try FireFox and see if issue resolves with it.
You can download it from the link in my signature below.

Hello,

I'm using IE 7 but there wasn't a problem before, this is why I can't understand why there is one now.
This seems to be the only board I'm having a issue with.....strange isn't it.
Not sure if this site's been upgraded or what. It's really not an important issue but I thought I'd ask anyway and are there others that have asked the same question.

Regarding the Toshiba (reason for the OP), it seems to be running "hot", very warm and the user periodically is receiving a low memory (41%) warning when System Mechanic is engaged. This can be optimized and is but remember we triple checked this earlier without any problems. RAM 512 X 2 sticks....but not running anything that would take intense RAM to operate.
Any idea on this one. I would hate to spend $$$$$ to upgrade to the max have something else blow out (caused by the original problem). What would you suggest for these 2 new questions.

Many thanks,
Mike

For the Toshiba please do the following
Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.

Hello,

I have the problem "Toshiba" here with me but I've had trouble starting through the boot sequence. Once I ran System Mechanic the virtual memory was down to 38% and the clean-up allowed me to proceed.
Attached it the TEXT file as requested.

Now if you want to hear something strange, here goes.
I clicked on your link on my own personal Dell and went right to the message above. However, the Toshiba did not and the last 2 messages were NOT there.......
I even went back to sign in again and they were missing (mine and then yours).
How is that possible? The Toshiba is one wild animal!!
I had to save the TEXT send to the Dell and now attach to this message.
The devil is at work!!!

Never a problem with the specially custom built Dell.....upgrade processor, buss and long life battery. Not the best on the market but the Vostro is a business work horse with the right programs (I purchased later) to fight off 99.5% off the problems out in the jungle. Malware is becoming so advanced (root kits) it's getting scary out there.
It all depends where your surfing takes you and what e-mail we open.

If there is a problem reading the text file please let me know!


Thanks again,
Mike

OK autoruns don't look bad but I'm posting further instructions that I would normally post on the second step of the autoruns.




Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged

Hello,

All is done and I'll let you know how the long term effects are.
Or is there anything else I need to do?
Thanks again for your assistance.

Hello,

Sorry but I had to give it to a friend to test because I require my own for work. But the good news is that the Toshiba is not as hot and running much cooler.....so it worked!!!
Good work and many thanks for a job well done.

I will update you on the performance (the original post) as time goes on.

Many thanks and have a great weekend.
Mike
