I had evil thoughts...

Whilst rummaging through my collection of NirSoft stuff, I thought how easy it would be, when you were helping to fix someone's computer, to make off with all their passwords, &c. if you kept the NirSoft stuff on a USB stick and used it.

 ;D ;D ;D

Hmmmm, I withdraw my request (which I haven't made yet) for you to do some fixing on my computer.... :o ;D

But I had to look up NirSoft, and it seems rather usefull, as some times on a fresh install, I can't remember a password etc.

USB stick you say......sounds handy, since it won't get deleted on a re-installation.... :hat3:

You can get the whole package, in one hit, along with a launcher, which gives descriptions of what each does. You can even include the SysInternals suite, to go with it.

I will........or break something..which I learnt how to do with Win98..... ;D

The delete key was always my enemy, and then I find I have no registry, and cost me a tenner to have windows installed again.
I did learn......eventually......honest ! :blush:

 Yep, happy days of trying to work a computer, and exploring what things do.... :yup:
Then costing me a tenner each time I screwed it up and had to have windows installed again by a friend who knew about these things
.
But, the last time he did it, I carefully watched what matey did, and then had a go myself the next time I broke something..............and to my surprise I actually managed to re-install windows myself !
Happy Panda !.

You were a great help back then............what was it, around 2000 or thereabouts ?

I have thankfully progressed since then to building my own, and helping a bit the family by building PC's for them, and then trying to fix them, which usually worked.

Now I have a broken PC which I can't be bothered to fix - I think it is the PSU gone U/S - but I need to take the case apart a bit to fit the 8 pin CPU cable as the socket is right up in a corner to try and plug it in.
I got the old cable out, but it was very difficult to do so.

Part of me wants to try and install the spare PSU, involving a lot of faffing about to see if if the PC will boot up and work, and the other part of me just can't be bothered.  ::)

Anyway, thanks for all your help over the years, and I am pretty sure I have stuff on a CD/DVD somewhere with fixes for windows 98 -SE and perhaps XP.
Memories......... ;D

More than likely......and thanks to him I got a disc with XP Pro Corp. on it, and still have.  :hat3:
