    I, Robot

    Isaac Asimov turned androids into pop culture icons - and invented the science of robotics in the process. Now his classic I, Robot hits the big screen. [ 1 ] A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. [ 2 ] A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders conflict with the First Law. [ 3 ] A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. film by Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) official website: http://www.irobotmovie.com ++++++++++ I can't wait for July 16th.. check out the trailers: Apple - Trailer #1 Apple - Trailer #2 Apple - Trailer #3 Yahoo - FILM CLIP #1 - "Dr. Lanning's Lab" Official Site - Mock TV Spot Apple - FEATURETTE Intl.

    Programs Needed: Reglite.exe (available at “ http://www.resplendence.com/download/reglite.exe ”) Microsoft Recovery Console (an option available on your Windows CD or root drive) run “X:i386winnt32.exe /cmdcons” where “X” is either CD drive letter or is “C” for your root. HiJackThis.exe (available at “ http://download.com.com/3000-2144-10227352.html”) There are two application extensions (.dll) files that Need to be deleted. One is hidden, one is detected with “HiJackThis.exe” 1) With “Reglite.exe” find name of hidden file: Double Click on “AppInit_DLLs” located in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindows” The “value” window reveals the hidden file name. (mine was “hlpl.dll”, yours may be different!) In this example let’s call it “hidden.dll” 2) Rename the hidden file: Close Windows and reboot using “Windows Recovery Console” Go to “c:Windowssystem32” and do two things. Change file from read only by typing “attrib –r hidden.dll” Then rename it (I don’t know why, but this procedure did not work until I renamed it) type “rename hidden.dll nasty.dll” (and remember that “hidden.dll” is for this explanation only use the name you found earlier) Type “exit” and reboot to Windows. 3) Edit registry to remove hidden file Run “reglite.exe” again. Double Click on “AppInit_DLLs” located in “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindows” Delete the file in “value” window, the “size” window changes also. “Apply” changes and exit “reglite.exe” 4) Edit registry to remove the second file Run “HiJackThis.exe” and scan the registry. Check the boxes to remove the following entries: “R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Bar = res://C:WINDOWSSystem32jheckb.dll/sp.html (obfuscated) R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Page = res://C:WINDOWSSystem32jheckb.dll/sp.html (obfuscated) R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSearch,SearchAssistant = res://C:WINDOWSSystem32jheckb.dll/sp.html (obfuscated) R1 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Bar = res://C:WINDOWSSystem32jheckb.dll/sp.html (obfuscated) R1 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Page = res://C:WINDOWSSystem32jheckb.dll/sp.html (obfuscated) R0 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSearch,SearchAssistant = res://C:WINDOWSSystem32jheckb.dll/sp.html (obfuscated) R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,HomeOldSP = about:blank” (as you can see my second .dll was called “jheckb.dll” yours may be different) For this example let’s call it “obvious.dll”. Finally delete the two .dlls (“hidden.dll” and “obvious.dll”). You should be running again. Be careful.

    Topic Suggestion

    Hi, How about a "Jokes/Fun" category/topic? Maybe it would cheer up the moment when in need to vent... or laugh together on a joke/story ? i.e. I wanted to share my collection of Bumper Stickers for this year: "We are Microsoft. Resistance Is Futile. You Will Be Assimilated." "I souport publik edekasion" "I love cats...they taste just like chicken" "Laugh alone and the world thinks you're an idiot." "I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather.... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car...." "Your kid may be an honor student but you're still an IDIOT!" "Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?" "Give me ambiguity or give me something else. " "A flashlight is a case for holding dead batteries. " "Lottery: A tax on people who are bad at math. " "Where there's a will, I want to be in it. " "What is a "free" gift ? Aren't all gifts free?" "If you can read this, I can slam on my brakes and sue you!" "Forget world peace. Visualize using your turn signal." "Visualize Parking" "My Hockey Mom Can Beat Up Your Soccer Mom" "BEER: It's not just for breakfast anymore." "So you're a feminist...Isn't that cute." "Don't drink and drive...You might hit a bump and spill it." "Always remember you're unique...Just like everyone else." "As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools." "Circular Definition: see Definition, Circular." "I'm just working here until a good fast food job opens up.... " "And your crybaby, whiny opinion would be ... ?" "Hang up and drive." "All that glitters has a high refractive index." "A day without sunshine is like, you know, night." "Atheism is a non-prophet organization." "I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian." "It's as BAD as you think, and they ARE out to get you." "All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand." "Taxation WITH representation isn't so hot, either!" "Gravity- It's not just a good idea, it's the LAW!" "My other vehicle is a Romulan Warbird!" "It works better if you plug it in." "Kiteboarding has been cancelled" LOL

    U.s. Bank Account Update!

    it takes a lot of resources to track>prosecute who does that. Best will be to protect yourself and be aware of at least the most common scams. Try to learn what the security requirements, privacy policy, personal account management are of the company/organization you deal with. ex: web address of eBay sign-in page begins ONLY with http://signin.ebay.com/ for more info on eBay stuff go to: http://pages.ebay.com/help/confidence/isgw...heft-spoof.html http://pages.ebay.com/securitycenter/index.html be careful.
