i have geeforce4, all the utilities installed and i know that nvsvc32.exe is nvidia graphic card service

but there should be no nvxvc32.exe in drivers (you wrote there is in first post), like i said, i use nvidia graphic card too

btw i have nvsvc32.exe(the real utility) disabled. its something for desktop support and realy not necessary, iam living with the process disabled and have never ever had problems or anomals with graphic card :angel:

I have been looking for those rams all this time in the wrong directions. It seems that I can get them from one shop near my pad for 265Lt (35Lt. less than the others had wanted). I will probably get them this week - whoopee. I will need them though, cause my new Norton2k6 eats rams like crazy. A fun fact though - I have a subscription to 2012 LOL . That's 2128 days left - :roflol: ...

I've heard that the new Windows Vista will eat over 1 Gb on its own, apart from the programs you'll be running, even the ones everybody has residing in memory like antivirus, firewall, etc. It was estimated that 50% of the computers wouldn't be able to use it, and I bet that most of the remaining 50% would run it slowly. I... I think this tendency's just crazy. Don't you?

I took a course in computer architecture design, and in the first lecture the professor commented that the demands that the software makes on the hardware increases by fifty to a hundred percent, per year, and added "Someone must be punished.". The reason being that code bloat is nearly keeping pace with the advance of hardware performance, so wordprocessing in MS Office12 is not much faster than word processing with MS Word 4.0 (but you do have more fonts and features).

This is also part of the unholy alliance between Microsoft and the big hardware manufacturers. Nearly everyone will have to buy new computers to run Vista. The hardware manufacturers are hoping that people will upgrade, but it is equally likely that people will just keep hardware and migrate to linux (If Vista does not run your old programs, and you have to buy new computers to run it, you may as well migrate to an OS that allows you to keep your current stuff).
