  1. except this computer is a latitude D430 with intel onboard video, no nvidia drivers, could it be a similar issue then ?
  2. and today it's back again along with the audio icon, weird... but now they menu's are also visible on all windows, annoying !! i'm seriously considering formatting this and moving to CentOS with good old fashioned gnome.
  3. yeah i wonder too as i cannot re-enable the 3d/compiz whatever now whatever i try, i think some update killed it and i'm forced to use the classic interface just noticed my audio button has disappeared from the systray and in accessories/advanced settings no Shell is listed (everything else is set to default)
  4. well i rebooted and it was back but at the login screen i can now choose either classic or the new gnome, at the moment i'm using classic. perhaps this is an update ?
  5. thing is, i dont want to switch back, not right now, so i'll leave it the way it is and see what happens
  6. I did an update today on my fedora 16 laptop and after a reboot i noticed that Gnome is not looking like it has since well.. since they changed to the new format. It's actually refreshing to see that it's usable again, i can minimize windows and so forth... so does this mean that Gnome is listening to people or is it just a quirk in the update i got ? see screenshot..
  7. nowadays I use Microsoft Security Essentials, its quiet, does it job and works very well, I uninstalled AVG as it just got extremely annoying with its' never ending popups which were as annoying as virus's themselves

    Hi @ all

    welcome to linux-noob.com !

    well welcome to the site, we are all noobs, or at least, I am :-)
  10. ok upgrade to F16 and now the gnome bar has returned at the top of FireFox and all apps, do you know if there's a fix for that also ?
  11. updating f15 now to f16 will report back later
  12. added it, wow what a difference, thanks a million !
  13. well i think something must have changed recently i notice the 'issue' most in my hotmail, when trying to read mails there the Flash/shockwave/whatever advertisement on the right side of the page causes firefox to slow to a crawl and it becomes pratically unusable until i either kill npiviewer or lower the quality of the current ad from high to low.. very very annoying at the moment,
  14. i guess i'm 32 bit then, i've checked the flags (lm) in cat /proc/cpuinfo and they exist so the hardware is 64bit capable am i screwed then ?
  15. that link doesn't work for me dave, am i runnin x64 i'm not sure, [anyweb@localhost ~]$ uname -ar Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Mon Jan 23 15:44:18 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
  16. i've always noticed npviewer.bin causing my browsing to become slow but its getting worse and worse lately, today for example the cpu usage was at 181%, i mean how can it get so high and that process is using all the bandwidt showing nothing but ad's, aside from blocking ad's is there a way to improve this at all ? i use fedora 15.
  17. yeah happy belated birthday ! how old are you ?
  18. this webserver is running Centos and will stay that way for as long as I can forsee, I like working with RPM based distributions, always have
