Re: Install Freezes, help please

I thought about that but I am a linux newbie and didn't take any time to research 32bit vs 64bit. I thought there would be a memory limitation and I see that PAE will go up to 64gb. Is there anything special that needs to be done to enable PAE in 32bit? Even I am an end user. I do not know any spec...

Re: hard drive is not accessible in booting via usb

Try this link.

Re: Install Freezes, help please

Most of the time, the culprit is graphic card.

Each kernel version handles hardware differently. Also keep a note that sometimes 32 bit might work if your are getting skeptical ;)

Risk while using Image Search - QuickHeal Article

Hello,

I use Quick Heal Internet Security on my office XP machines. Recently I got a notification about 'Malware Alert! The risk of image searches on Google and Bing'

Is it to be taken seriously or is it a marketing strategy.

Any thoughts about it?

Thanks
