Hi, Detron.This is a great, great thread; and just like to step in and thank you for this selfless contribution to help and share many cool wares.1) A while ago, I was also look a freeware to monitor a few in-home ip cams, I paid for an apps on my android phone called 'ip cam viewer' which does work wonder(very simple to set up, pretty much just choose the right model, type in the ip address and password, and it will work itself out)I browsed thru the FAQ for Zoneminder, and it seems like it will work on linux, but anyway this or any recommend wares would work on PC as well? Anything simple that a layman like me can figure it out?2) I had been using a 1T backup removable harddisk to backup different data from different sources, and somewhere I probably copied some old, old files that is causing some disk problem--now everytime I plug that into an usb port, the PC kept reminding me:"Do you want to scan and fix XXX HDD?There might be a problem with some files on this device or disc. This can happen if you remove the device or disc before all files have been written to it.Scan and fix (recommended)This will prevent future problems when copying files to this device or dics.Continue without scanning"However, if I choose "scan and fix", the little program just kept on running for a long time without ever coming up with an solution. Anything you do recommend to fix possibly broken files/folders in a removable harddisk?Thank you in advance!
no problem, the Scan / don't scan does not bother me, because 95% of the time I am in Linux, and it does not complain, and everything works as it should
I inherited a Gateway NAV50 that had the "Internet Security" malware on it. The previous owner had no idea what was wrong and could do nothing with it. After some research I used the Windows System Restore and thought that was easy. However now the Windows 7 Starter software is not working right. It is extremely slow and the WiFi internet connection keeps dropping and it will not update when it does connect. Any ideas?

OK, I am looking at this but the biggest first hangup is I have no disk and the NAV50 is a net book type device with only USB port, and Ethernet port and some flash memory card reader. I have tried System Restore in safe mode and regular mode but each time now it fails. It still boots up but Firefox and Chrome does not work. IE works. The WiFi seems to stay online now. Know any place online I can get it scanned for free? What else to do?
Well I spoke too soon. The windows operating system reinstall failed and now the unit will not even boot up in any mode. I am looking at making a boot-able USB drive that will assist in reinstalling the Windows Operating System again. Really sick and tired of it right now so I will mess with it later this weekend some. Maybe I should think about turning it into a Linux box.
