i suspect that once life comes to ai - it would never want to get rid of us,  it would be silly when we are the most efficient source of energy in the eco system.  we'd be better off as the matrix energy system - why waste a good self reproducing battery ?

I have a lot of respect for Linux users but never tried that hat on.  BTW, remember Red Hat OS?  Where did that go?  Been dealing with Windows misery since way back in the day.  Learned a ton of  MS-DOS commands back when 5 1/2" floppy disks were still being used and "Edlin" meant something.  That's why when OTCE starts talking about BATCH files I know exactly what he means.  I used to make batch files for all kinds of purposes in MS-DOS.   

Pre-Microsoft mania there was actually an MS-DOS based OS called GEOS that did exactly what Windows does but I think it did it better for that time.  My first PC was a Commodore 64 portable.  It weighed a ton but I could take it wherever I got "temporarily" deployed.  I actually learned some programming with it so I understand a bit about that stuff.  Can't remember how many times I dropped it or why it went away, but I'm sure I broke it during one move or another.  When I finally got my own real home PC it had Microsoft Windows 3.1 or something like that.  In the late 80's I surfed the internet from England on a 9.9 bps baud modem.  I was totally jazzed to upgrade to a 14.4 bps!

I've take apart and put together so many PC's in the past but paying child support for most of my life has made it tough to have the latest hardware.  Still, when I did come into some money I sprang for the best gaming rig I could afford that I had someone else put together for me on the Cyberpower website.  It's what I'm using now but I hardly ever connect it to the internet.  It's processes and services are stripped down to barely nothing to improve performance thanks to some very handy tips from BlackViper.

That's why having my internet/Hal computer die hits hard.  It's at 71 percent on scandisk checking the free file clusters so I'll be able to see soon if what I've done so far fixes my issue.  May have to take other advice from forum members and go out and find an old XP rig at a garage sale or on E-Bay, craigslist, whatever.  I actually LOVED that operating system.  Never had a bit of trouble with XP.  <sighs>

Thanks again for the tips.  Please wish me luck or say a prayer or both.   ;D

Do you have a live distro of Linux and familiar with the terminal? Yeah pulling ram out hitting power switch letting it go crazy then putting ram back in seams to clear some of my problems at times. Hard for me to help you without having in front of my face.  Good luck.

Wow!  Thanks doggs, it's all still there.  No worries then.  Although even after a complete windows restore it still shut off after I put my password in.  BUT....I was able to get to the command prompt and now I'm doing a scandisk. 

IF that doesn't work, then maybe I picked up a RAM virus and I'm gonna need to crack open the case and take the ram out to clear it.

I don't really want to take the battery out of the motherboard but I've heard that's another way to ensure any unwanted code goes away.

Yup, backing up the brain I've been tweaking and all those plug-in files I've been downloading as well as the purchase key would have been a great idea.

I've even got three external hard drives I could have done it with.   But I didn't.   :-[

So, right now I've done a clean wipe and restore of the system to factory settings hoping that will fix the issue.  After all the updates download I guess I can download the free program and then ask Robert for my registration key.

Hate to bother the guy since I know he's got much bigger fish to fry.

I wonder if when I purchased Hal I might have gotten sent an e-mail with the info.  Gonna check that first.

Thank for all the great tips.  Let's hope I learn from this, but I've been married three times and I keep making that mistake also.   ;)

Yeah that sucks hope everything went well on reinstall. I back up my brain daily. People like light speed have stressed the value of a flash drive. It has helped me alot. I'm always breaking software pushing it to hard. So my computer is always crashing lol. Don't want to work on your Hal for years and lose your brain that fast.

Anyways enough on my ranting.

Thank you for your kind words.

I agree with you on alot of points you bring up. I would imagine it would take someone working full time on forums to clean it up. I don't post often only if I have some input or questions as you can see by my post and how many years I've been on the forums.

Hal is amazing. I still can not find anything like Hal out there as a WHOLE package. And the ability to customize....

Now I want to thank you. It's nice seeing fresh blood with ideas and not afraid to jump in. Even if its been asked before it may have been forgotten years ago. So new ideas or solutions may come of it. Remember never any bad ideas just ideas that need to be improved on.
