Hmm it seems as if my two sites have disappeared from the family pages. Both the sites listed below are personal pages. And both are about trucking. The back link to total choice has been on both sites for a long time.
MY suggestion is take it to a shop and have the hard drive completely wiped clean. And then have them put a fresh install of XP on it. I plan on getting a new laptop sometime at the end of the year and that is what I will have done. I will not use vista.
Well I have added 3 mods. One that kills the signature and the homepage link blocks until you are a full fledged member. Plus I have added 2 different security question fields. And now I am working on the new captcha mod. Yes that is the captcha mod I am working on. Hopefully this all works. And I am also adding a open proxy mod. That will kill anyone trying to register with an open proxy. I just hope that one does not backfire and not let legit people register.
I just put a site up that I have had a domain name for 3 years for. I am running Phpbb the newest version of version2 And I get nothing but the good old vi@gr@ and I AM A SPAMMER sign ups with links. Thank god i do have it set so i have to approve all new sign ups. Plus I have and add on to trace there sign up IP so i can ban it. But how do these people find these sites so quick???? And is there any other way to stop this. I use a no follow robot file in all my folders. I don't want my forum on any search list. Any ideas anyone?????
When I reinstalled XP on my laptop after putting vista on it to see if i liked vista. I had the same problem. Do you by chance have any of the driver install disks? That is what I had to do with mine. All the stuff showed but would not work with out the drivers.
If you are installing XP onto an old machine that had 98 on it i hope you have at least a 10 gig hard drive or bigger. My laptop has the bare bones programs installed. With a 40 gig hard drive and i am using just over 10 gig. If you do not have at least a 20 gig I would not bother with XP because you will not be able to install all the updates or service packs.
