Default Login Timeout.

How long is it? I wandered off a while and it reset me. It does that quite often as I'll go to look something up and the 350 or so new posts will not show up in new posts... Is there some way to set the time out to like an hour, or just teach me how to get the stupid search to show me everything posted in the past day?

Sounds like a cookie issue on your machine. I never have to log in on my home machine, and only have to log in once a night here since I wipe all the cookies when I get in.

Do you have any sort of cookie software installed??

We don't even want to start on the old man and his "Norton systemworks rocks" BS.... Since my AMD overheated all he can say is "If norton is so bad, why does my PC still run and yours not?" He'* thick headed and believes marketing... Cookies are why I can't login to hotmail, but with Norton set on "Retardedly High Blinking a stupid popup or light every ten seconds" and the old man convinced it'* doing something, I need a way around it. Anyway, Is there a way I can use the search function?

No way to search by time that I can find. Just gotta do what I do when work causes me to close the window, just browse all the sections that interest you and see what'* at the top of the list. Sorry....

there are ways to tell SystemWorks to chill out, too.

For On line Manuals:

http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/consumer.html


pick the product and click on product manual on the next page.

Um, I am the online store that sells them....




They ain't all bad, but they also aren't the Be All End All of protection software some people seem to think. Personally, I think anything more than AV and a firewall is just too much protection....

I don't know about clean install every month, but evry 6 or so, but yeah, most Utilities programs I have tried have been over kill and memory hogs.

Simple things like knowing how to use the built in WIndows tools (and Safe Mode), how to clear cookies manually, and maybe a simple registry cleaner seem to do a better job of keeping a computer ru8nning well than sopending money on redundant tools that just sit there and suck up valuble memory....
