    People should post problems here, and other's can offer solutions/advice. I've seen quite a few threads posted asking for help, so this is my effort to centralize any kinda similar request.

    I believe rip said Counter Strike was messing up after he played for a bit. I'd say, update video and sound drivers. Use Windows Update to get the newest service pack. Also, if you always play in the same server, see if the the same problem occurs when playing in another server. You should do a full system virus scan using up to date virus definitions. Defrag your hard drive(s). If all that fails, re install Half Life and Counter Strike. And if that doesn't fix it, go vegetarian.

    virus scan, use a firewal to block all but the necessary incoming and outgoing portsl.... if you were really hard core, and you found that there was a lame hacker tool like a trojan sending information from your computer, you could submit a complaint to the assailants ISP. Violation the TOS in the billing contract, let alone federal law violation, is enough reason to have termination of service and charges filed. Alot of times there is an "[email protected]<domain>.com" that is just for these types of occurances. Alot of overkill, but I said, "If you were hardcore."

    zone alarm is decent even more decent due to the fact that one of the versions is free or you can always go for the posh "platinum gold alpha mega pay version" or however they refer to those ones where they make you pay.,,,,weed

    I have windows xp and when it starts up it doesn't go through BIOS. It's like a mac, it just shows a loading screen. How do I reformate my harddrive from this point? Actually how do I format my hard drive in general?

    Pantelones: if you're trying to do the bios's "low level format" you could try pressing the delete, f10, escape, or f1 key at that boot screen. I'm sure there are other combinations of keys to get into the bios for different computers. One of those up there *should* work though. If you have more than one HD in your computer, and the one you're trying to format is not the one that your winxp is installed on..... you can either right click on the HD in the "my computer" folder, and select format..... or you can go to the dos prompt and use the "format" command. Do "format /?" if you don't know the correct parameters.

    Xbox: I don't recognise ".r", but if it was an archive, you can try win rar.... I'm not gonna stop ya.

    Mang: Your welcome, and that zone alarm is real good.... I'm sure that pay version could be found on kazaa.... kazaa lite of course.

    how come when I'm writing a file without a set end point to a certain workspace on the fiber channel array, it assumes that the file will
    max out the entire workspace? Is this just a problem with my mediaNet,
    or can this happen to other people.

    You're currently doing somekind of download or render or whatever,
    and it's writing to a partition of you drive. But then you try to copy a
    large file on to the same partition, and the computer wont let you do the copy
    because all of the hard drive space has been allocated for the download/render/whatever.

    I mean I'm sitting on a terrabyte here, why wont you let me copy an mp3 ?

    uhh... thanks but no.

    The issue is that a file is being created on a workspace (drive set),
    but the computer thinks that the file being created will use up every bit
    of space on the drive, so it wont let me put other things on the drive.

    but seriously, dont rack your brains about it, I think that it's a much
    nigger fix than something I could fix. I'll need the next server update.
