I had been using a Samsung SyncMaster 213T with my older Vista (32-bit) desktop and nVidia GeForce 7600 graphics card (DVI port) with no problems. So my old system (mobo) decided to finally die, and I got a new desktop system and a new Samsung SyncMaster 2494HM widescreen to go with. The desktop is from Dell, running i7-920 and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and nVidia GTX 260, which has two DVI ports.

I have been using Sygate SPF Pro for 5+ years. Since Symantec bought them out last year, and pretty much killed it, I am looking for a new firewall. Free or not, I'd like something as stable and easy to use as Sygate was. I would appreciate any recommendations, oh and (obviously) Symantec products are not an option. Thanks!

There is an old WB skin that I love dearly, however, it's a bit antiquated (circa 2002). Is it possible to update it in Skin Studio, to conform to current WB versions? If so, how can this be done?

I have already contacted the artist and requested (begged) for an update, but that was a long time ago, and so far nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.

For several weeks now, whenever I turn on my PC, it freezes up during the boot process. Not always at the exact same spot either...blue welcome screen, black screen, or just as my desktop starts to load. I'm forced to do a hard shutdown...then it usually boots up okay after that. It only happens on a cold boot (after it's been off for a while). I've had a couple of different techie folks test it...first one had it freeze up just trying to get into BIOS settings, he eventually replaced the proce...
