comment Windows XP System Has Limited Connectivity With Multiple Routers
Thanks for the suggestion. We tried this and it didn't seem to work. At this point I'm wondering if the driver is corrupt or if there is malfunctioning hardware

Thanks for the prompt feedback. I'd prefer not to use NMAP. If possible, I'd like to use the stock commands in Windows CL (windows server 2003/2008).

comment How can I determine what is causing my hard drive to become busy/stuck?
Thanks for the feedback. With regard to your questions... 1) Yes, I have both Symantec AV and Adaware running, I'll try disabling adaware and see if that helps. 2) I think I have enough RAM (4 GB). I usually only use the laptop for internet and email. 3) I'll check out resource monitor.

comment How can I tell how many bytes a block of text in an email takes up?
@Amazed so if I were to take the raw MIME source and paste it into notepad++, the number of characters would roughly equate to the size? What about the empty space? like the spaces in a sentence?

@IngmarHupp Thanks for the suggestion but how would that tell me the size of data?

comment How can I determine why exactly UAC is blocking an app from running/installing?
Thanks. I'll check it out. What I'm noticing is that some workstations will have problems and others won't. Not sure why.

comment Can I use an old sempron stock heat sink with a Phenom II processor?
@Journeyman Geek I bought an OEM processor that didn't have a heat sink. Oh well. I got a coolermaster. Not worth the risk.

Thanks. Can you recommend an HDD-Stress-Test? Would I use the dd command in Linux?
