Please please can everyone be aware when they have sheds & garages open on hot days during the summer cats & wildlife may wander in & curl up. Always check in case something is sleeping inside before shutting the door again & accidentally trapping them for what may be several days before your return. A friends cat went missing on Sunday evening & returned very severely dehydrated & in shock on tuesday afternoon barely able to walk or make a sound. He had obviously been accidentally shut in somewhere stifling during all that heat on Monday & had been suffering until his chance release midday tuesday. This was barely two days without water but left any longer in the heat & he would surely have died. Lets all be vigilant as even non animal lovers cannot wish to inadvertantly cause such suffering.

What's the point of cats anyway? Apart from catching mice and rats, they contribute nothing to mankind apart from providing solace to bitter old spinsters who like to say that 'Cats are better than men!'
They're only out for what they can get. If they dare to enter my shed, then tough.

I can see both sides to the arguement, on one side there is no need to cause suffering to any creature, unecessarily, and it doesnt take much to be vigilant, on the other, cats are inquisitive animals, mine especially, and can be a pain, my cat gets everywhere, in everyones house down my road, delivery vans, cars with windows left open, she's even taken a turn in the tumble dryer, and i dont like other cats in my garden, but you can deter them, they piss up your door FA because thats all they can smell, you obviously dont clean it well enough, a good tip is to keep a bucket of water, and chuck fag ends in it, they hate the smell of tobacco, just chuck the water round the garden, they wont come in, fair enough you dont like cats, but there is no need to cause unnecessary upset to innocent animal lovers just because you dont like them. Doom merchant sounds like the typical person that would have a pitbull or rotty at the end of his lead.

I agree cats & wildlife can be a complete & utter pain mainly because unlike dogs they dont seem to be able to comprehend that its ok to crap on the pavement & public places but not in private gardens. Also where dogs happily crap in front of their owners & leave it to them to choose wether to clear it up cats cant seem to grasp the need to leave some form of identification when they do their business. However wether you are cat lovers or haters I dont believe anyone wiould deliberately want to cause any animal to suffer a slow and agonising death unless they are sicko's. There are plenty of ways to deter or even vent your dissaproval to the individual cats that are a nuisance to you personally without condeming them all. Simply shooing or frightening them them out of your shed or throwing water over them from close range might actually be enough to deter them from returning anywhere near your home anyway. All I ask is that people be aware that animals can get inadvertently shut in places & in the hot weather with no water this can quickly be lethal, hopefully with a bit of forthought we can all avoid this potential suffering. Thanks.

FA, Lord Pike and Super K - I'm with you on this one.
However, I am a spinster (hopefully old and bitter too) and I loathe cats. Therefore I think Lord Pike's statement about the vile creatures providing solace to bitter old spinsters is grossly incorrect.
Any suggestions as to how I can lure pussy cats into my shed?

Just wanted to share my new experience.
If your Windows XP fails to run due to an error related to missing HAL.DLL, invalid Boot.ini or any other important system boot files you can repair this by using the XP installation CD. Simply boot from your XP Setup CD and enter the Recovery Console. Then launch "attrib -H -R -S" on the C:\Boot.ini file and delete it. Run "Bootcfg /Rebuild" and then Fixboot

That's me again.
This time we will learn how to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair often startup issues in Windows Vista.
You can use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and fix the following items in Windows Vista:
-Master boot record (MBR)
-Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store
Note: When you are troubleshooting startup errors by using the Windows RE, you should first try the Startup Repair option in the System Recovery Options dialog window.
If the Startup Repair option does not repair the mistake, or if you must troubleshoot more steps manually, use the Bootrec.exe utility.
To run the Bootrec.exe utility, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:
1.Put the Windows Vista setup disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2.Press a key when you are prompted.
3.Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then hit Next.
4.Click Repair your computer.
5.Click the OS that you want to repair, and then hit Next.
6.In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7.Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
Good luck with your Windows Vista, since with this OS your still need it.

Windows vista is also causing lots of boot issues, so I often get questions like this:
I have a Dell Dimension, which wont boot to Windows (Vista), and none the repair options work:
Startup repair: Reports fix fail due to problem with registry
System Restore: Reports no restore points available
Windows Complete PC Restore: Reports no backups available
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool: No memory problems
Cant think of any appropriate command to use here.
So I booted with the system DVD (as one would with XP) but the upgrade
option has been greyed dont want to do a new setup. I want to fix existing
What should I do?
And here is the answer:
You can't do a 'repair install' because you need to launch the Vista DVD
from within Windows, not, as you have been doing, booting straight from the
DVD; that is why the 'upgrade' is greyed out.
If you cannot launch Vista and none of the fix options will work a new
install is the only other option.
To save problems in future it is actually a good idea to image the hard
drive, using program like True Image. What I do is install operating system, download all updates, check system I working okay for a day or two, activate system, then image the drive/partition. Any time I get a problem I can re-image the drive/partition quickly and be up and running without much trouble. And minor repairs are done by using any registry repair utility, there are plenty of them on the market today.

Note that this is for Intel based systems only (mainly laptops) and you would be well advised to image your disk BEFORE YOU TRY THIS just in case something happens and you cannot load your Vista (IMAGE, IMAGE, IMAGE!!!)
Once you have your disk images precede with the following:
Backup your registry or make a restore point just in case.
Under search: regedit
Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\
Locate: folder "iaStor"
Under "iaStor" you will find a folder named "Parameter" > delete this folder
Locate: folder "iaStorv"
Under "iaStorv" you will find a folder named "Parameter" > delete this folder

This post opens set of articles devoted to computer security.
At first, I would like to give some basic definitions for variety of modern computer threats. All these threats are currently known as Malware.
Malware ("malicious software") is any application or file that is harmful to a computer or computer user. This would include, computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, adware, spyware, keyloggers, web-page hijackers, driveby downloads, and any programming that gathers information about a computer user without their expressed permission.
6 years ago, the most security threats that most people came across were Viruses.
This is no longer the case!
There are new threats out; and they take no prisoners, no longer is an anti-virus application sufficient to stop the invaders, the web is a complex place and the technology is getting so advanced that you need to act now to protect your machine and your private\personal data.
A quick overview of some of the more common malware that you might find, sorted by level of threat:
Spyware is any technology that aids in gathering information about a person or organisation without their knowledge. On the Internet (where it is sometimes called a spybot or tracking software), spyware is programming that is put in someone's computer to secretly gather information about the user and relay it to advertisers or other interested parties.
Trojans are malicious programs often used by hackers to attack target computers, usually to provide a backdoor into the system but sometimes just to cause destruction. Remote Access Trojans (RATs) are the most famous class of trojans and they usually come in two parts - a server that is sent to infect the victim, and a client that the hacker uses to connect to the server after the victim is infected. There are many ways that hackers can use to infect a target with a trojan, and careful security measures aren't always enough - a strong anti-trojan program can easily detect tens of thousands of trojans that would otherwise be near-impossible for a human to find.
An application or piece of code that is loaded onto your computer without your knowledge and runs against your wishes. Viruses can also replicate themselves. All computer viruses are manmade. A simple virus that can clone itself over and over again is relatively easy to produce. Even such a simple virus is dangerous because it will quickly use all available memory and crash the system. An even more dangerous type of virus is one capable of transmitting itself across networks and bypassing security systems.
Worms are in a similar category to viruses. Usually spread by email and containing their own email engine, they attempt to spread themselves to all the people in your address books, impacting greatly on network traffic on the web. Sometimes you will find viruses also contain Worm code so the virus is able to mail multiple people using its email engine, whilst infecting the machine with a specific virus, making the sender of the virus hard to find as it looks like it has come from someone you know.
A keylogger is a program that has been dropped onto a PC that actively monitors all your keystrokes and mouse clicks to try to capture both personal data, passwords, and browser habits, it will also capture any data entered on any web site including secure sites like online bank sites. This data is then stored in an encrypted text file either on the machine or sent to a pre-defined server for the sender of the keylogger to access at his discretion.
Adware is any software application in which advertising banners are displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen. The justification for adware is that it helps recover programming development cost and helps to hold down the cost for the user.
A hijacker is a expression used to explain a registry entry on your machine that has been placed there to re-direct your browser to another site, usually ad-purposed. These are not normally harmful for the machine, other that the fact that it will stop you from getting to the web site you wish to visit. It is more of a frustration than a security risk; however, some Hijackers will attempt to redirect you from Hijack removal sites.
Hope you like this article. Next time I will write about tools used to prevent of/remove particular threat types listed here.
