Re: Networking

OK I have used a cross-over cable and done all of the IP stuff but it's still not working which is annoying cause I followed what everyone had said to the letter.

Increase Performance

Hi all,
I use my PC for games and internet mostly, but it has become rather slow recently. I run Game Booster but that doesn't seem to last long. Can anyone recommend a piece of free software or any other way to boost PC performance??

Re: registry issue

Not sure how to restore a registry but C Cleaner or Glary Utilities might work and for the drivers I have something called device doctor, which might help and all mentioned software is free.

Hope this helps and if not now, in the future

I don't want to use a router or wireless just one plugged into the other. I know it is possible but I...
