Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Slow computer...

We run Windows XP...home version. I have had the computer up to the pace where we had it built and purchased. They cleaned up, removed the 'bugs' etc. But, it is still slow, pauses often and so on. Is there a way to do a slef clean, fixup with out having to go back to these guys, not cost an arm and a leg and truly see what is going on.

I susbscibe to Adware and AVG Security. What am I doing wrong.

Many thanks,

Marykran

Defragging hard disk drives drives frequently, getting rid of unneeded startup items, etc. can help. (The startup items are often things which run in background and use up computer resources. Some are not really needed, and some others do not really need to run as soon as computer boots up & can instead be run manually when you are ready to run them.)

What are the computer specifics and how old is it?

We are using Win Xp, home edition V2002, Service Pak 3. Our email is Outlook Express.

The computer is maybe 3 - 4 years old. It has as AMD 64 Athlon X2.

I reularly do a disc clean up as well as a defrag.

What else can I do?? What other info can I send to you? It has only been a month?? since the computer ws serviced at the retailer form whom we purchased it.


Many thanks for your advice and time.

Try this:
Go to LW's menu bar, Tools -> Options -> Advanced, Performance tab. Then check to disable both Ultrapeer and TLS abilities. These can both have an effect on system performance.

You may also wish to limit both your up and download speeds to 10-15% below present settings for both regular Gnutella files and torrents: Tools -> Options -> Transfers, Settings button. Check the limit up and download bandwidth options. Example: if present upload or download speed is 100 KB/s, then change to 90 or 85 KB/s. Do this for both.

Default Cleaning and Speeding up Windows XP

marykran

I am also an XP user (XP Pro SP3) and I have also used Windows95, 98 and XP Home in the past and the one thing they all have in common is that they all need regular housekeeping (cleaning, both registry and HD) to keep them at peak performance.

But first, you need to know which applications that start up when your windows starts up, i.e. the more that start up the slower your PC.

In order to control these apps I use a little free utility called Startup Control Panel, using this utility will give you the control that WinXP doesn't readily give you.

Secondly, you should also have in your arsenal Periform's CCleaner, this free app will clean out all the text and log files that various apps (including windows) seem to create all around your HD.

Next, you should clean up your browser, you see all PC browsers pick up cookies and other debris during a browsing session and in some cases this rubbish never gets deleted, although if you get CCleaner you wont have to worry about this particular point.

Most browsers will have Options/Preferences under the Tools menu that will allow you to delete Internet rubbish your browser has picked up.

Finally, you will need a registry cleaner, I have found that when using most windows applications they tend to have a detrimental affect which, in turn, slows down your machine. In particular, Limewire usage tends to tear up the registry settings leaving it with loads of incomplete endings.

To sort this out I use Norton Utilities, which I believe has replaced Norton System Works, there is a 30 day free usage period on this application and I would strongly suggest you give it a try.

Once you have done all of the above you will then find that your regular defragging will be more beneficial than it currently is.

Hope this help.

Here's a sample image example of CCleaner, which btw can also clean registry: CCleaner sample image ie: First tab for general cleanup. Second tab for registry cleaning.

It is a free utility application as ukbobboy01 suggested & can be obtained here CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

If it's a laptop (you never mentioned the make and model) this the issue could very well be cooling related. Also somewhat if it's a desktop, but not nearly as important as with a laptop.

If it's a laptop, did the service include the cleaning of the airways and fan(s), applying new thermal grease etc.?
