    OSNN Firewall Poll

    I used to use Zone Alarm, but after a while it forgot ALL of it's settings and refused to remember them ever again. Unistalled, and I just sit behind my Linksys router/firewall now.

    Alternative to Ad-Shield for Opera?

    I've recently switched to Opera for the tabbed browsing capability. I hate all those IE items on the taskbar :/ I've really gotten used to using Ad-Shield to block banners/ads & servers at will, is there a way I can do that with Opera? Loading banners etc. is making it slower than IE +...

    File & printer share refuse to work over network

    I only included what was going wrong, since everything else works... LAN games, internet access, etc. Plus, I didn't think they had any effect on this particular feature of windows networking.... In other words, try to avoid writing an essay on the subject. Router: Linksys...

    Minimize to Active Desktop

    Yowch, that's a stinker lol Try asking in the programming section too, I'm guessing you'd need a language such as Visual Basic 6 or higher, or C++ to do that. I don't know of any "web" languages that can do it, but then again I don't really "know" any web languages :p

    XP (sometimes) fails to use a re-dialled connection

    OK, like many UK 56K-ers I'm on ntlworld 'cos it's cheap. Annoyingly, it has the 2-hour cut off. This usually just results in a quiet curse and a click of "re-dial", but recently it's caused XP to fail to access internet resources after re-dialling. Not ONE BIT of data will be transferred no...
