Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 nForce4 Ultra Motherboard Review

Over the course of this review, PCstats will explain the attributes of nVidia's hot new nForce 4 Ultra chipset, the benefits of this technology, and how it application on the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 motherboard performs. As the nVidia 'CK804' chipset soldered to this board is an engineering sample, there may, or may not be a bit of latitude to the results against that of a retail bought solution. In any event, the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 is bound to be a favourite solution, for not only does it incorporate the all important PCI Express x16 slot alongside an Athlon64 64-bit processor, but it also features a remarkable array of goodies.

AOpen EX915 XCube SFF PC Review

Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs have advanced in leaps and bounds since they were first released by Shuttle a few years ago. PCstats recently reviewed an attractive SFF kit from AOpen, the EX915 XCube. This is a 'barebones' kit. AOpen's XCube is easily among the best looking SFF PCs available, and AOpen has been extremely quick in getting the latest technology into their systems. Who else has an 915G Socket 775 Pentium 4 board available in a SFF system?Continue Here>>

Albatron GeForce PC6600 Videocard Review
Based on the highly successful NV40 architecture, the small 0.11 micron manufactured GeForce 6600 GPU only has half the rendering pipelines of the 6800GT/Ultra, but still packs quite a powerful punch. PCstats will be putting the Albatron's new GeForce PC6600 PCI Express videocard though its paces in this review, so let's get started. Using the NV43 GPU, the Albatron card is backed up by 128MB of 5ns Hynix DDR memory. Not a lot, but it should suffice for the average gamer. The Albatron GeForce PC6600 supports dual monitors, which means this card can be used for work or business purposes, as well as gaming.Continue Here>>

PCstats Weekly Tech Tips: Scheduled Tasks

It can make life easier for admins to set up scheduled tasks, like running a virus scan every Friday at lunch, or scanning for spyware Monday mornings. Though sometimes a few PC's might not run the scheduled tasks, even though they have administrative access to do all the processes. Frustrating as this may be, the fix is quite easy.

First load up Windows Explorer (Right click on the My Computer icon and go to explore) and follow this path Documents and Settings -> All Users -> Application Data -> Microsoft -> Crypto -> RSA->S-1-5-18, please note these folders are hidden by default so you'll have to enable the Show hidden files and folders option. Once you're in that directory, delete any file that's inside, the scheduled tasks will recreate anything that's needed.

After that's done, the scheduled tasks should run whenever you set them to!
