None in the last few days or so, as I had to replace my motherboard /cpu on the 25th May 2006

Do you mean myself personally or the ones I fix during the day for clients?

02-06-2006, 02:31 PM
None, only opportunities.

Define "problem" within this context first. Internet browser "hung" for no reason while playing a flash game?

Cheers :)

If you mean Windows crashing, then i wouldnt have that many, problems usually occur after my pc has been on for more than a month, so a restart fixes it all.

I have noticed that my pc is more stable since obtaining XP Pro.

Nought: but then I use Windows XP!

If you mean PC problems. I don't really have much except servicing every week. I am Administrator of my home computers, my parents don't even know how to fix them, I'm not a kid any more. When I was a kid my parents always sent the computer to the PC repair shop because I deleted the system file that was the problem because you're a kid and you know nothing much about computers that time.
When I first starting to fix PC on my own the only thing I know is reformating the whole HDD when without Norton System Works that time. After purchasing Norton System Works my computer performance can last a lot longer. And now I hardly even reformat my HDD. I guess this is the years of experience.:thumbs: Everyone learns from mistake, no mistake no success. Am I right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

If I count suffering through posts like this then yes I have 13+ problems per day.....

??? I don't get it. Really my Windows XP Pro OEM have been running fine for years, except few problems in the year and less than 10 problems in the year except hardware damaged.

Really??? My 15 odd years of experience working with computers has taught me to stay away from Symantec software. The only one I use is Ghost, but then Symantec didn't write that one :thumbs:

None,XP is beautiful.

03-06-2006, 02:59 PM
??? I don't get it.
I'm using XP too and have no issues with the PC at all - the only issues are the ones I read on the screen.....

Same here.

Well I'm not using Norton System Works anymore but still using Norton GOBack for just in case of virus attack beyond the anti-virus control.

I have had no problems with Windows itself in any way. I have had problems with some software amd just recently my motherboard wentmad and would not let me do much except crash. That was a matter of trial and error to work out what was at fault because sometimes it worked and others it did not.

A 'problem' means something like a forced reboot or a virus, NOT Firefox crashing. (I've had that a few times.)

05-06-2006, 08:09 PM
lol. Not me. I told you I got servicing software for Windows. No lagging, No Virus, No Spyware. I guess there is some virus and spyware depending how good the product is.
