    Default Grimtuna's Games OOC

    Having computer issues - constant hangups, had ti remive a trojan as well today and am now on the tablet on which -i can barely type with my clumsy fingers and bad eyes.

    As this might happen in one way or the other I made one thread to inform all instead of having the trouble to c/p and repost with only a pen to help.

    I am currently not able to do anything requiring map manipulation or map chosing. I'll be abke ti do most else

    I have no idea what this darn machine's base issues are. I thought it might be the energy management as it kept crashing at night or when I was away fir a bit but now that it is deactivated, it keeps happening and now also when I use it. It jut freezes up and no hint of overheating etc.

    Could be a windiws 7 issue but I think it's rather a different thing,

    Are you sure it isn't overheating? It won't necessarily feel that hot if it is, as it only takes one or two very small components (processor, especially) that also produce a gargantuan amount of heat to hit their red zone to cause a crash or shutdown.

    It's also possible your power supply is starting to show its age, and the cheapest/safest/easiest solution is to buy a new one that's either a duplicate or has a higher wattage. If you're using a laptop, you could probably find a duplicate cord online and be safe in assuming it'll work. If it's a desktop, even though it's usually cheaper getting a new brick online, go to a store (Fry's, if your area has one) or order one through a store's online catalog. Speaking from experience, even if you're a total tech wiz, get it installed at the store so they're liable if something goes wrong

    subbed and watching

    Regarding computer issues and trojan, I would suggest you download Hirens Boot CD, and then you can run Malwarebytes to scan you computer (or download from here)

    You may have to disable your antivirus when doing this, as a lot of those tools flag some antivirus utilities.

    Once downloaded, disconnect access to the internet, and then scan, if you have Hirens downloaded, literally try every utility under Programs>>antivirus/spyware, until you have exhausted all resources.

    After that, clean up your computer with CCleaner (on Hirens as well)

    And then cleanup all extensions on Chrome/firefrox/IE, many malware attach themselves via extensions by automating a navigation path to a bad sight. These are both installed on the computer, and browser, so if you find one, then look in Control panel>>Uninstall a program for the same name

    EDIT: if all fails, revert to a previous version of a good windows install, which may remove issues, have you made any changes to your machine recently? new hardware, new software, new website?

    I got rid of the trojan, that's one thing I am good at, virus removal.

    Yeah the computer got new SSDs, and now that I think about it, thr problems did start after.

    So is this a communal OOC for some of your games Grimtina? I'm kinda wondering where all these people came from.

    Yeah, this is for global announcements. Actually a really good idea, since she seems to enjoy GMing 20+ games at a time. Something comes up, she only needs to make one post instead of 20+.

    Sorry to hear about your computer woes. Glad you're on the road to getting it sorted out, though!

    And here's Abasi Huridah, from the underloved character class game.
    I have been suddenly forced to move to a new home. Expect shaky contributions for the next week or two while I deal with this process. Thank you for your patience!

    Why yes, stalwart stranger, I did miss the fact that there was a slightly-too-small character limit on user names before I activated my account.

    Solid-States? Those things are pretty swanky, good purchase. I retract my estimate of power failure, unless the two SSDs replaced a setup that used less power, in which case they still might be overtaxing the power supply and/or cooling.

    I'm holding out for the drives based on glass prisms being developed: Scratches that would be crippling to an HDD disappear with a little bit of resin, a relatively simple spherical design (still a prism, though, with a great many faces) can hold tens or hundreds of terrabytes of data, and they're estimated to have lower production costs than a standard HDD. Very cool, in my opinion.

    Hope your computer gets better, soon!

    Well that wasn't it.

    Husband says we'll do a mem test this weekend, and if that's not it he'll "Take the (censored) thing apart" to see what's up with it this time.

    My guess is I took the drawback "computer bane" at some point, as it is always my machines developing weird issues.

    So, it's slightly better, however, I still crash a few times a day. At least I am not stuck to the tablet most of the time anymore.

    Due to some of the games I started not moving forward thanks to lack of player posts, I now require new players to red the About Me to make sure we're on the same page regarding how a game should move.

    Thanks for the patience everyone.

    Issues are getting worse. We narrowed it down to it likely being my old board being incompatible with the SSD as I get controller- and HD response time errors. Tonight my husband will switch discs to see if it helps, if not - new machine, here I come.

    Wahoo! New machine. *drooool* For the sake of your sanity do not get a Windows RT rig. Trust me, I work in tech support. You might be fine but the average "grandma needs a computer" person is outright paralyzed. Also the dumb thing has program compatibility issues. Like every program. Ever. Written.

    I have a windows 8 and I don't hate it. It's not as good as 7, sure, but it definitely doesn't deserve half the hate it gets. The part of 8 that most people bitch about is something that is almost entirely optional. The whole "metro" interface doesn't have to be used at all other than to start up the desktop. After that it's pretty much just a different looking start menu. I have heard that it slows down the computer, but I haven't really experienced that at all. I'm also not amazingly tech savvy. I know more than most people software wise, but much less than anyone who knows anything about the hardware or has any kind of job or passion for technology.

    Current Characters:
    Evan Therioux, an evil Nobleman Bard

    Scrubble, a Goblin Alchemist ... and I just realized both of my current characters are evil.
