Comments on HowToSpeedUpYourNetConnection: Easy peasy questions today! 1) Yep, css supports layers. You can use the /position/ tag to place any element anywhere, including above and below . . .

It’s a lot better than Plusnets shitty DNS, that’s for sure.

Question Time…
1st
Is there anyway to create a “layer” effect justing using ‘div’ tags?

So you can display one image “on top” of another.

2nd
I have a laptop which was given to me as my mate has bought a new one. Its a cool Sony Vaio…Pah!
Anywhooo, thinking I’d got the deal of the century (a free Viao, the price was right) I soon realized why he had given me it…

It has a fault on it…

Explorer.exe failed to initialize error number was all zero except the last 2 which was 22 (something like 0x0000000022, or whatever)
Anyway, after searching numerous sites the most I could get was that it referred to a security issue and that explorer.exe couldn’t run because the right privilages were’nt set. Which is crap! Another site mentioned the MSVB????.dll, which is basically a visual basic 6 runtime file, or commonly used as that anyway.

Anyway, you can access everything, barring anything which would require a “window” to open (obviously)

I can’t do a system restore, I can’t reinstall SP2 as the Cryptographic service isn’t able to run without the running componant explorer.exe provides.

How the hell do I sort this little problem out.

PS. I can’t even boot into safe mode either. Even if I use the good old method of pressing F8, it just resets itself, doing via msconfig doesn’t work either, it bypasses the instruction and tries to boot into normal mode…

Help

Cheers

Easy peasy questions today!

1) Yep, css supports layers. You can use the position tag to place any element anywhere, including above and below other stuff. See this page for details.

2) Rule One of getting a second-hand computer is always wipe, wipe, wipe. The OS is badly broken, so probably spybotted and virus’d to hell and back. Sound like a good candidate for Linux :) If you decide to install Windows (a clean install), grab the drivers for the vaio first onto your own computer and copy them onto a pendrive. It’s much easier that way.

If worst come to the worst, it’s a dud hard drive though – try a clean install first though.

Let me know how you go on.
