Spot the Problem

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Every now and then a mate of mine will call to say that there is a problem with his computer. Usually there are rogue applications running which he “knows nothing about†or his browser is defaulting to a site which he’s “never seen beforeâ€!

    The latest problem is Outlook Express not being able to locate “msoe.dll†despite it being in the correct folder – a quick scan of his registry revealed over 800 errors...

    There is a pattern to these problems, they usually occur when his wife has been away for a few days. Any ideas? :wink:
  2. I know of some reliable sites he could someone at work told me about them..never looked myself :oops:
  3. DNS poisoning - eww - reset router to factory defaults
  4. I've bought him a pair of boxing gloves - should solve the keyboard snags and... Damn they're rather supple leather! :D
  5. Bit over the top for most but,every three months or so I do a full backup and a format,clears all the crap out and the machine runs like a train.
    It's pretty quick to reload and transfer the important files after a while.
    works for me.
  6. Hows about getting to know the neighbours wife - that should clear it all up.

    If he asks for a cuppa sugar during the working day, all the files will be available.
