Help for Halfwit, please

#1
I've just bought a PC from a friend to replace my tiny minded, snail paced laptop and all is well except some things are being blocked when on line - the avatars and background colours on Arrse for example.

It says Windows 2003 on most things so I assume that is what it is using, is there a simple filter or something I can turn off?

Mllaaarrr

You see, you've done me already. It uses word 2003 but I suppse that isn't relevant is it?
For the net I'm using Google Chrome.

well, if you cant even tell people what OS you're using, with the best will in the world we're going to struggle.

if you go to the Start icon in the bottom left of the screen, then click on 'control panel' and then go to 'system' within that that should say what you're using and what you have there.

Sounds like you have brought a right lemon! I'm not sure Windows server 2003 is still supported by Microsoft.

Best advice is use your laptop and plot your revenge on you friend.


If you have a spare £230 you should buy yourself a netbook and download Open Office.

Microsoft Windows XP, Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2

Hope this helps

From albimangles:
"First download Windows XP Service Pack 3"

Seconded. Plus get every hardware and software update you can find for your kit. And some biccies and a brew to tide you over while you are waiting.

For the bolded bit above; you haven't accidentally clicked on the 'work safe' mode on Arrse have you?

That blocks the avatars and makes the background white.

hey i was just wondering if any could help me with this. Im from Australia and want to join the army but because of the few postions available and large amount of people applying for the position it iits pretty hard to get into or if you do there is usually a long waiting line. What i want to know is if you guys think it would be a good idea to try out for the British army?

Albi,

If you check out the thread title, I think you will find he has selected the most appropriate place to ask his questions.

I am currently living in Australia and i am 16 years old. When i finish school i am very interested in joining the army. However due to very few positions available as a soldier and large amount's of poeple wanting to join it has become quiet a challenge to get accepted and if you do it takes up to several mothns possibly a couple of years to start military training. I have been looking at the British army website and i was reading that their is a shortage of soldier's. So here is my question to you guys, do you think i should have the option of trying to join the british army and how long does it usually take to get accpetd if do so.

Thanks

Loc_Noc,

You are not likely to get much helpful advice in here as it is the Online Gaming and Computer Advice forum.

Look through the Joining Up (Regular) forum first http://www.arrse.co.uk/Forums/viewforum/f=113.html and if you don't find the info you are after, post your question in there.

Good luck.

Shiny.
