    Internet really slow on Windows?

    For some reason. downloading files on Windows is horrifically slower than any other operating system via my Nexus 5 tether. Why is this? Liam

    'Select Network Type' window always shows?

    For some reason, whenever my computer connects to my WiFi (Nexus 5 Tether), the select network type always appears. The network name on the dialog has an increasing number after it, starting with no number, then going to 1, 2 etc. Liam

    HP is selling computers preinstalled with Win 7 again.

    Can't get better than that, should've been like this from the start.

    gradually a dead town?

    It does look a bit bare, but hey - people have lives, and @Ian is correct - people are moving to Windows 8 (my school has upgraded to Windows 8!). Liam

    What's up with the generic replies on the official Windows help forums

    I like stake exchange, you just need to know which questions are going to be deleted. Most newbies don't know that a question isn't a good fit for the network. Source: I'm a member of a stack exchange site with more than 5k rep ;) Also, to be on topic, I've never really used the Windows help...

    Forum Upgrade

    Thanks :) @Ian some smilies are now just text, as they aren't default in xenForo... Could you install one (or more) or the smiley packs? Two reasons: It'll probably mean that the missing smilies in posts are no longer missing [AND] People have more ways to express their emotions ;) Liam

    What's up with the generic replies on the official Windows help forums

    Macros (or canned replies depending on what you call them) are useful when used correctly ;) However, in this case they really aren't useful, and people just use them to quickly answer as much questions as possible without actually caring about the asker's issue. I'm a Super User on the...

    SOLVED Account lockout question

    OK, I've managed to lock myself out of my laptop due to too many password attempts (the system was set to Dvorak layout, I typed QWERTY). So, I'm now locked out for 45,60 or 120 minutes (I can't remember what I set it to). What I'm wondering is, will the timer start again if I type my password...

    Hmm, I still can't see the Gravatar option in the Avatar setting overlay: Comparing it to another xF forum: (I personally love the fact you can paste images directly. Cuts out a step when using the snipping tool ;))

    New Forum Software

    Oh yes, don't get me wrong on that. I'm just saying some sites are using vB5 :) I've been using xF for a while now, before that I was on vB4. I got vB4 when it had been out for a while already, so I didn't know about anything else...
