A few small yet annoying problems



Hi all maybe you can help me. These aren't HUGE problems, but they are annoying still.

1. RoadRunner Medic (RRMedic) - I got this app from RR when I signed up for cable. The problem is, it doesn't detect my NIC. It used to under Windows 98SE and it's a handy little program that I would like to be able to use. I know my NIC is totally fine and working because I am online. :) It is a Linksys LNE100TX(v5) Fast Ethernet Adapter. Yes, I have the latest drivers for it.

2. MusicMatch Jukebox - Another "it worked in Win98" deal. Song title doesn't appear when minimized to taskbar. It just says "musicmatch jukebox".

3. I have no idea what caused this, but when I log on to xp, my floppy disk light flashes and I hear it looking for a disk. Annoying and slows down my boot time. This started when I disabled a bunch of services. Any idea which service would cause this to happen when disabled?

4. I am using the switches /e, /n (C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /e, /n) in my Windows Explorer shortcut so it goes to the root dir rather than "my documents" It works fine but it says "C:\ - Microsoft Internet Explorer" In the title bar. Strange. If i use C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /e, /n c:\, it does something similar to problem 3 where XP looks for a floppy, which wastes about 15 secs. Annoying.

Thanks to anyone who can help me get rid of these annoyances. Appreciate it :)


ps- Im running XP Pro


well thanks for the response zman, I don't have an anti-virus running @ startup though. I guess everyone else is stumped.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
