View Full Version : Sir Speedy: Please Tell Me What U C Here...OK?

12-01-2008, 04:33 PM
I don't find much wrong here...but this is running so slow...let me know if you see anything..I surely don't.....one that makes me suspect a problem...if there is one..is this: MSASCui.exe.

I know it's a start-up program...but should it not shut off or go away after up and running?

It shows in my Task Manager...but I don't see why it can cause any trouble here. :groan:

Looks ok to me.

I've never used Defender, so dont know what it does after it runs on startup

These dont have to be in startup

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_03\bin\jusched.exe"

If Googledesktoptop is like Google toolbar and indexes files, this can slow things down. Its similar to XP's indexing service, and Windows Desktop Search.

If you didnt set these, I would tick these too

Kinda what I thought..I'll clean out that Explorer stuff and see what I got.


12-01-2008, 06:58 PM
Hmmm..I notice that in UBUNTU...my dinosaur is missing and so are the little marks to tell me that I have posted in certain posts...that's strange...and maybe another reason to not get to liking UBUNTU too much.

ALL avatars are actually missing...double hmmm.

12-01-2008, 07:20 PM
I think it is to do with a missing cooky.I had the same problem and just put the Avatars back while using Ubuntu.

13-01-2008, 04:43 AM
I wonder what UBUNTU calls a cookie?


I also wonder where the setting is to keep the font size set to where I want it...every new page I display has to have the font size jacked up two CTRL+ clicks. Every reboot, UBUNTU forgets what I wanted.

Too much clutter.
I'd get rid of INCD.
And Teatimer on SPybot.
And Google Updater.
And Bonjour for windows.

I killed TeaTimer.....
I never used INCD...so it's going away too.

Here's something interesting....

Once I killed TeaTimer, I noticed that I can spool/stream online radio and now when I click around on this F1 site I don't get the "broken record" or "skipping needle" effect on the stream. I guess that's a RAM situation...but thanks for that TeaTimer idea. I'll just stay further away from IE now.

I wondered about Bounjour too...let me Google it and see what it is...BRB...

Hmmmmm..will I lose the network-ability of my networked printers (3 different Canons)?

I see Bonjour is an Apple-thing and also ties into the LAN..but it's really unclear if I need it or am even using it. I DO have a few networked devices and wonder if they'll lose connectivity if I kill Bonjour?

Its probably because teatimer can block programs adding their entries to the registry.

And if some program is failing to work properly, (or it may not install properly), teatimer if its running maybe the problem / cause.

Right now, after SP-2, I am downloading 192 updates to Windows XP...and it passed the WGA this time.

Funny thing is that I got an error message, it told me that I had to remove data.dat in Documents & Settings\All Users\Application Data\Windows Genuine Advantage\data to get it to work.

I had NO Application Data entry under All Users, so I got a little confused at first.

I just hit the "Retry" button and it went OK from that point on.

Maybe we should be aware of that glitch in the future...as I've never seen it before.

This is on the Dell which failed the WGA last week and I quickly stuck UBUNTU in it to keep it running. I'd like to keep UBUNTU with this XP....possibly just to punish myself when I feel all smart and assured of my abilities.

Linux can cut me down pretty good.

PS: I am writing and posting this from my SOYO right now...just to confuse things. The Dell with the new XP installation and the COMPAQ and another Dell are all running fine right now on the LAN.

Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. In order to provide a true zero-configuration experience, Bonjour requires that devices implement three essential things. These devices must be able to:

* Allocate IP addresses without a DHCP server.
* Translate between names and addresses without a DNS server.
* Locate or advertise services without using a directory server.

13-01-2008, 04:31 PM
So...once I've discovered all I want, can I delete it or does it need to stay to run the LAN-ed stuff?

13-01-2008, 05:34 PM
Look in the event viewer see if bonjour is crashing. It was crashing and causing problems on a machine i fixed recently. It Caused the machine to get bogged down due to heavy Cpu Usage. Locked up IE as well

Oddly, I don't see Bonjour running in the Task Manager...but it IS in the list of programs in Add/Delete.

Maybe it only gets called upon when there's LAN activity such as the wizard trying to install the PnP hardware?

14-01-2008, 06:12 AM
Bonjour requires Windows 2000/2003, Windows XP or Windows Vista
