    • You still shouldnt say that all Arab guys dont speak English, just because of one bad encounter. I know alot of Arab guys that speak better English than I do sometimes.

    • Our art class computer at school was running so slowly that it could only have one window open at a time. Also, the entire desktop was full of shortcuts to random pictures on the internet. Literally, the entire desktop. So after cleaning off the desktop I checked the cookies, they hadnt been cleaned since 1996! Now that is bad. [Edited on 6/10/2004 9:20:54 AM]

    • hey i have a question...i will pm you! [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] klurejr [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ajenteks It's not just corporate bufoons, sadly. One day on my home network my brother told me to access some file in the shared folder of thte system he was using. I open that folder and my AVS goes off, which surprised me because at the time I was using McAfee and I had set it up on that system to do scans everyday and auto-update, probably six months before this happened. So I get on that system: Auto-updates, disabled. Auto-scanning, disabled. So I auto-update McAfee. There was upwards of 70, seperate, viruses on the one PC. After that I install and run spybot, not quite 3000, but 1500 different registry entries, cookies, and .exes. There were probably 8 different phoney pop-up blockers and 15 "searchbars" installed, along with a whole myriad of other -blam!- freeware programs. After all that, I was surprised when, the next day various siblings started complaining that they couldn't install files anymore, and that they wanted admin priviliges.[/quote] Dang.... gotta watch the kids too... I had to sit down and teach my wife to not just accept cookies from all sites, no more downloading whenever you see the box.. etc But her PC was not that bad, it only had like 140 spyware detections.[/quote] hey i have a question...i will pm you!

    • It's good times. Some of the commands even I forget from time to time and I've been using it since I was 9 or 10. I still prefer windows for obvious reasons. Now, if SunMS added their 3d desktop to Solaris, I would most certainly run a two-OS system without a doubt.

The process to which Microsoft shares it's folders and the details are different, obviously, I was just referring to the idea of folder sharing in general. The 'built-in' shared folder's permission can even be altered. I, in fact, do it because I dislike network creeps thinking there's something in it. Just right click, select the sharing tab, and your options. There you go. It still uses the methods you and I proposed to solve though ;) [Edited on 6/9/2004 9:38:46 AM]

    • Actually it goes all the way back to the old Unix permissions :-p. But, aside from that the owner (user who owns the folder) must give you a permission or passworded enterance to allow you to access the folder. Or, just make the folder public to everyone. Pain in the butt, but that's how security goes these days.

    • Find a way to get logged onto an administrator's account and then access either "Control Panel" or "Set Program Access and Defaults" from the Start menu. You can then alter your account. Maybe if there aren't any passcodes installed to prevent you to, you could do it from your profile. Good luck! I used to have the same problems as you at one time with this blasted Windows XP.

    • Well, If you do not have a Administrator or Power User account, yes you will be limited to what you can do. If the person who has the other account drags the files into the "Shared" folder that will allow files to be shared between users. There is no way around the security, Microsoft builds the OS that way, goes all the way back to Windows NT 3.5.
