    Help! More Hard Drive Woes

    I had some hard drive troubles a few months ago after my power supply died and it turned out to be a pretty easy (yet time consuming) fix thanks to the help from people on these forums.

    I used proxomitron for a long time but it tends to block too many things that aren't ads. Then I switched to the Meaya pop up stopper and it didn't catch a lot of the ads. Now I'm back at the proxomitron and becoming frustrated again because its blocking normal content. Any suggestions?

    I'm fine tuning a bit on my active desktop and was wondering if anybody can show me how to open a folder using explorer.exe instead of internet explorer.

    quick html question... scrolling="no"???

    Ok I'm making an active desktop and I'm trying to get a sliding menu from the right side. It works fine on the left, but when I put it on the right it makes scroll bars which I don't want.

    explorer taking up too much resources in xp

    I've been running XP for over a year now and I haven't had too many problems with it other than what is to be expected in that amount of time. In the last few days I've noticed a big slowdown in performance on my machine. I checked the processes tab in task manager to check what was taking up...
