I’m no expert in operating system but i learned something new today while attempting to troubleshooting for my problem. my windows media player has been popping up every time i turn on the computer. i’ve been ignoring it since it didn’t really hurt anything. but just recently another software named “sychost.exe” under systems32/helpefa starts to load during my windows xp start up too. the annoying thing tries to connect to the internet so i get my zone alarm alert and a prompt for internet connection every time my windows starts. what’s worse? sychost.exe doesn’t shut down when i shut down the computer so i have to click on “END PROGRAM” pop up every time i shut down. i still haven’t figured out what is it for. i finally got fed up and decided to figure out a way to stop my windows from loading it at start up.
here’s how you do it. there are many “unknown” programs gets loaded during your window start up. to test if it’s ok to NOT load one of them during your start up. go to START -> RUN and type in MSCONFIG. in the new screen, click on the start up tab and uncheck the programs you don’t want your windows to load during start up. exit and restart.
view my screenshot of MSCONFIG
i didn’t get any error when i’m back after i unchecked media player. so no idea what it’s like if you do XP. anyway when you are back, you should get a warning about how the windows is running under “selective startup” mode. click ok and then the start up tab again. on the screen, find where the particular software is located in your registry. most of them would be under
but somehow mine is under HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS NT/CURRENTVERSION/WINDOWS weird! (btw, “HKLM” stands for “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” and “HKCU” stands for “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” if you haven’t figured it out)
now go to START -> RUN and type in REGEDIT, browse to the place where your software is located and delete its value on the right.

that should make the program disappear in your msconfig window. and next time you start your windows, the software should not be loaded any more. at least it worked for me.
good luck trying it out if you have similar problems
digging is one of the many differences that separates cats and dogs. bubo will have to demonstrate it for you. cats dig in their litter box. dogs dig for absolutely no reason. behold here (6.7M) LMAO
Why do dogs dig?
Because they are dogs. Because it is pleasurable and fun. To relieve boredom, stress and loneliness. To get away, or to get into the house. To get cool.
while working on my new store script, i learned about inverse color. The inverse of a color is the most contrasting color of that color.
[geektalk] Mathematically, it’s the complement of current RGB value of the color. On the web, each color is represented in either a HEXCODE or its RGB (red, green, blue) form. The hexcode is a representation of the color’s RGB value. Hex means base 16. It’s consisted of 1-9 Plus A-F. Since two hex code can represent up to 256 decimals because 162 = 256 (representing 0 – 255), the first two digit of the hexcode is the color’s red value. The second is the green value and third is the blue value. So after we convert the hexcode representation of the color to its respective red, green and blue values and substract each from 255. Then convert them back to hex and concatenate them. We get its complement color or inverse.[/geektalk]
Either way, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, just take a look at this example. You will get it.
i just realized today that amazon is not only a good place to buy books but also a good place to sell them. andy ordered a toyota manual that he didn’t turn out to need. it’s brand new wrapped in plastic. it would be a total waste just sitting around. no one here really needs it. so i thought i’d give it a try by selling it on amazon. amazingly it got sold in 2 days. of course i priced it extremely low since it’s my first sale. i have no idea how to price it. so i priced it $5 lower than the lowest price for a new copy listed on amazon. amazon doesn’t charge you for listing. it just takes a percentage of the profit when you make a sell. i guess now i know where i should sell all the textbooks i no longer need.
continue from here what a dis! i only asked them to ask the owner to remove the pixel. they deleted the whole site. well i guess that’s a win for us
Dear FreeWebs User,
This site has been deleted for some time. Contact us should you be finding the site pages on the net still.
Thanks for the support
hi, i accidentally bought an extra copy of Scourge of Worlds – A Dungeons & Dragons Adventure so i’m selling it on ebay now for cheap. starting at $1.5. this is your opportunity to get it for yourself or a gift for someone else
description of the DVD:
If you enjoyed those ‘Choose your own adventure books’ when you were a kid, or your kids read those now, and you like fantasy, this dvd is for you.
As far as games go, its very simple. You watch a small cinematic and then choose what you want the group or character to do from a given menu of options. That’s really it. Don’t expect more than that.
Supposedly there are 990+ combinations of stories. I have not, nor will I ever see them all. However, that isn’t such a bad thing as I can come back to this DVD time and time again and the story will probably change every time.
It’s a nice thing to have for game night as it provides a short break from what ever games your group normally plays.
continued from here (still hasn’t taken my work off her site. no response from the webhost – *big surprise*)
whoever impersonated me posting on her doddle board. i do not appreciate how you impersonated me but i find what you pointed out very interesting. apparently this girl gave very good web tips
The number 1 main rule about content is that you NEVER EVER steal content from another site and call it your own. Not knowing how to make your own stuff is NOT an excuse. Learn how to. Read a tutorial or two, look up a guide on a search engine, do something to educate yourself so you can make your own content. That’s how we all learned, and so can you. In addition to that, you don’t redistribute other people’s things on your own site. I know that any webmaster out there would agree with me on that one. If you do take from other people, you will probably end up on their Wall Of Shame or other “bad people” list and other people will see you as disresectful and rude. It’s ok if you take something from someone else’s web site, upload it onto your own web space, and put a link back to them so you’re not claiming it as your own. The exceptions to that rule are if the webmaster/mistress has his or her own rule that says you can’t do that, and the other one is that you can’t redistribute content and then say you got it from a certain site. However, if the owner of the web site tells you it is ok, you can. Just remember that since it is THEIR site, you have to abide by THEIR rules.
well said! except you aren’t doing it even after i TOLD YOU TO TAKE OFF MY WORK ON YOUR SITE.
smart huh? wonder if she took this tip off someone else’s site too. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
btw, here’s freewebs info. maybe if we all write to them, they will respond.

but not chinese teens. this article makes me laugh so hard.. OMG
Huamei, a 4-year-old panda, is pregnant after she learned something about sex from videos of mating pandas given by veterinarians.
But Chinese teens aren’t educated this way.
The US borned panda came back to her motherland early this year, but she knew nothing about making a panda baby. After seeing the porn videos, she became pregnant by natural means and is due in Sept.
Chinese teens are not so lucky: no way for the educators to show them videos about sex to know themselves and the opposite sex naturally and scientifically. In Chinese middle schools, teens have course on sex, but teachers just skip that chapter.
“You are supposed to study this chapter back home, ” teachers tell us over the generations.
How do they learn sex anyway? The best way is word of mouth in the past as my generation did. But now, there are more channels. Porn magazines, porn videos , and of course textbooks.
porn was abolute poison in china. i think it’s still true.
ok this person has displayed my pixel “little peach head” on her site without any crediting. she allows others to adopt it too from her site. i’ve kindly asked her to remove it if she doesn’t want to just adopt it. guess what she said? “look lady this is a small insucifnigent site only my friends vist cuz they bored ok why not put a lilt joy into it huh?”
so apparently if you don’t make much money with your business, laws don’t apply to you.
can you reason with her? i’ve reported to her host. hopefully they will do something.
