Octalforty Exile is an open-source password manager, definitely not spyware.

comment How can I rename the Bookmarks menu in Firefox?
@sleske: I'm helping an older gentleman who is in the early stages of dementia with his computer. I switched him to Firefox because his eyesight is poor, even with his glasses, and the zoom feature on IE is terrible. I wanted to rename the Bookmarks menu to Favorites because that is what he is used to. The plugin I found adds a Favorites menu, which is even better in this situation because then he will have two paths to find what he is looking for.

I am a software engineer by profession, so that may be an option. Do you have any pointers on how I can get my hands on Firefox's source code?

comment How do I reassign conflicting IRQs?
About 25% to 75% of the time when I boot my computer, it blue-screens (attachments.techguy.org/attachments/162503d1262669945/…). There are also other times when the computer seems to lockup, sometime after booting, for no apparent reason, which, just as hunch, I think is related to the first issue. The Event Viewer shows only DCOM errors, which, as I understand, doesn't mean anything.

Here's a link to a screen capture of my Device Manager showing the current IRQ assignments: attachments.techguy.org/attachments/162339d1262368313/…

Hello Molly. Yes, the Device Manager does report no conflicts, but viewing the IRQ assignments tells a different story. Here's a link to a screen capture of the Device Manager: attachments.techguy.org/attachments/162339d1262368313/…

The DCOM service doesn't appear in the list. You could be right; just prior to this I also installed a bunch of Windows updates via their new "Microsoft Update." Do you have any ideas on how to launch System Restore without going through help? Thanks.

Unfortunately, dialog boxes are no longer working, so clicking on Properties isn't doing anything. Any other ideas? Any thoughts on how to get to System Restore without going through Help?

comment How do I plug more that two monitors to my computer?
Just FYI, VGA is an analog video interface standard. Using an adapter is still a good idea, though.

comment Windows is shutting down screen takes a long 20 minutes
Basically, I just kep turning off services and disabling startup items until the problem went away. It seems that there was a Cisco VPN service installed that was causing the hangup. I couldn't figure out how to disable it, so I just uninstalled it, and the problem went away. Thanks again!

Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm really more interested in solving the problem, rather than just masking the symptoms.
