1281  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Change File Associations in Vista on: April 01, 2009, 10:49:35 PM
Victory!

After two days of searching I found a program that does exactly what I needed. Once I could add the programs to the open with list all the associations fixed themselves.
For anyone else who has this incredibly annoying problem check out OpenWithAdd v1.2 for Windows® XP/Vista.

Big thumbs up to Author of this little piece of software.

1282  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Change File Associations in Vista on: April 01, 2009, 01:23:52 AM
I recently upgraded my adobe suite to CS4 which is great but it broke all my file associations. I can open all my files manually but I can’t click on a file and have it open correctly. Choosing the “Open with” option does not display the correct programs and even if I navigate to the location it won’t let me add it to the selection. Same thing applies for going through Vistas "set associations" program.

I’ve had this problem before when I updated Word and managed to download a program to fix it but I can’t remember for the life of me what it was.

Any Thoughts?

There is some combat, or at least there was in the first one, but it’s handled in a more reserved fashion than most FPS.  No guns if that’s what you’re looking for but I remember being able to set enemies on fire in creative ways.

1297  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 Video Stuttering Bluray on: February 10, 2009, 11:25:45 PM
All other disks read fine that’s really the reason I am puzzled.  The strangest difference is I have a couple TV shows on bluray and they don’t have the problem but all full length movies do.  I don’t know how blurays work…do they switch “tracks” half way through perhaps?
1298  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 Video Stuttering Bluray on: February 10, 2009, 08:01:31 PM
No switcher, plugs directly in.
1299  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS3 Video Stuttering Bluray on: February 10, 2009, 05:27:07 PM
This is a problem I’ve started to notice more and more now that I have more Blurays.  About once per movie the video in a movie will slow down and move at about 2/3 normal speed.  This usually goes on for about 5-10 seconds and then is fine.  The problem only happens with bluray movies, normal DVD’s and games are fine. 

I tried searching Google but I couldn’t find mention of this anywhere.  Does anyone else have this problem?
1300  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Computer Responding Extremely Slowly on: February 09, 2009, 04:27:30 AM
Well the problem returned.  While the Trojan probably wasn’t helping I don’t think it was the cause.  Thinking about what Scraper said I opened up the computer and tried starting with only the main hard drive plugged in.  Doing so everything was running fine so I came to the conclusion that that drive is failing. 

Funny thing is when I plugged it back in restarted to finish backing up and everything is running great again.  Now I’m not sure if it was just a loose connection or if there is a more serious problem.  Does anyone know a good testing application to tell if a drive is failing?
1301  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Overlord 2 on: February 08, 2009, 08:12:24 PM
Glad to hear its coming.  I hope they don’t make it too dark though.  The silliness of the original is one of the reasons I loved it so much.

Is anyone else to the point where screen shots don’t do much for you anymore?  It seems like ALL games look good now and everything looks about the same.  Makes graphics less meaningful to me.

1305  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Penumbra- any impressions? on: February 06, 2009, 08:08:15 PM
I played the original and I have to say there is a creepiness to it that I haven’t experienced in many games.  The way you interact with the world adds a lot to that.  In most first person games opening a door is just clicking a button and it magically swings open.  Having to stay there and push or pull them makes you feel vulnerable especially when you never know what’s on the other side.  The same goes for every other aspect of the game.  Most of the time the enemies aren’t that bad, it’s the anticipation for them that gets you.

It was Trojan-Clicker.HTML.IFrame.dn

Technical details

This Trojan opens web links without the knowledge or consent of the user. It is an HTML file. The file is 483 bytes in size.

Not sure why that would cause the problems it did but they seem to have stopped now.
I use Nod32.
1307  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Computer Responding Extremely Slowly on: February 02, 2009, 07:27:00 PM
Thanks guys.  The Kaspersky found a Trojan that everything else had missed.  Everything seems to be back to what it was, I was able to start TF2 and the program lag is gone.  I’m going to run SuperAntiSpyware anyways just to be sure.


Malwarebytes found three tracking cookies and two registry entries.
1308  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Computer Responding Extremely Slowly on: February 02, 2009, 07:27:47 AM
Thanks, I ran the program and it did find a couple files.  The mouse sluggishness has vanished but programs still seem to be running slow.  Also, Steam games still won’t launch.
The only thing I’ve installed recently was the demo for Drakensang.
1309  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Computer Responding Extremely Slowly (Updated Problem) on: February 02, 2009, 05:09:33 AM
This problem first popped up yesterday but at the time wasn’t causing many problems so I thought it would just go away.  Anyways I first started to notice sluggish responses from games on Steam; my mouse would often take a second or two to catch up.  Today the sluggish mouse has returned, I can’t start games on Steam at all, and normal applications are taking upwards of 30 seconds to start. 

I’ve already run my own virus scanner, ad aware, and even tried submitting a hijackthis log but nothing has shown up as being wrong.

I’m running Vista 32 bit and have never had a problem like this.  Any ideas?

Yeah I played it while I was working for longer than I should admit.  I love the way the grapple movement works.  Once you get used to it you can get anywhere on a map without ever having to stop moving.

1314  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Velvet Assassin? on: January 29, 2009, 09:12:36 PM
Every once in a while I see an ad for this game and today I saw it listed in Steam as coming soon.  Does anyone know much about it?  I haven’t seen any real coverage but it sounds interesting.
From what I gather its a 3rd person sneaker where you play a female assassin during WWII.  I believe that it’s supposed to be based on a true story as well.

1316  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Disable copying of images in email? on: January 28, 2009, 11:29:15 PM
This is a long shot since I don’t believe it is possible but does anyone know a way of disabling images from being copied in emails?  I was given the task today by a client but I’m not optimistic.

I’ve even tried “disable-right-click” scripts, which I know don’t really work, but they don’t work at all in email it seems.
1317  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin on: January 25, 2009, 07:47:49 AM
Maybe I’m remembering wrong but didn’t the original have lean left/right options?  As I was playing not being able to was the thing that bugged me the most. 
Pretty impressive overall though.

1319  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dawn of War 2 - [beta impressions included] on: January 23, 2009, 06:38:40 AM
Some additional Eldar impressions.

Initially I wasn’t impressed with what had become of my Pointy Eared Friends but after experimenting I’ve learned that Farseer Map Reveal + Webway ability = really annoyed opponents. Eldar are actually even better at hit and run attacks now, although people are going to consider the play style incredibly cowardly. Basically the key to winning with them is to only stay in a fight long enough to have enough points to open another Webway. It amounts to killing one squad and then running. If you keep it up you can bounce around the map capturing victory points indefinitely.

I’ve also come to the conclusion that rangers are the most important unit in the Elder army. Rangers instantly suppress squads and can hold off large numbers by themselves. The only weakness to this seems to be Tyranids and jump troops.

I’ve won my last three games since figuring these two things out. Works especially well if you have two ally meat shields that can hold a line while you’re out pestering the enemy.

StarCraft
Fallout 2

Console games would be something like:

Beyond Good and Evil
Super Mario World
Mario Kart
