I guess this would be a correct thread to put this in:

I have been having trouble burning music onto blank CDs. Not sure how this really started being a problem since I barely burnt anything the past 3months or something. Before I got rid of iTunes, I used that to burn music. After I got rid of iTunes and all my music, I burnt every last favorite album using Windows Media Player which worked great as well, no issue.

But I tried burning 1-2 albums recently and it won't work at all. I drag the entire tracklist onto the "play list" thing to burn, but nothing really happens at all when I pop in the blank CD. At 1 point, i thought the CD was messed up, so I kept trying out a few more (no I didn't throw them out lol), but still nothing.

I dunno if there's something wrong with the drive? Anyone?

the aolload.exe is for any aol software including aim. Try going on task manager (right click your windows task bar, select task manager)- processes. Then find aolload.exe, right click it and select "Open File Location". It will take you to the folder. then delete it.

Have my first project for my intro C++ course due Thursday. I think I'm understanding it though, it's not hard at all. I just have to look online on how to get certain things to output, but it's alright. Got the skeleton of the thing ready and put in most of my constants and equations and whatnot. Just gotta test it out and get the output to match the format. Yahoooooooooo

Cool, I'll definitely hit you with a PM or something in the near future. This stuff isn't so complicated as it is tedious so far. Just a whole lot of using the textbook as reference when actually typing up stuff.

Bookmarked, thanks dude.

Hell no. Norton is crap. It's the scum of internet security and paying for any type of anti-virus/spyware etc is not necessary.

Norton causes more harm to my computer than some tracking cookies would.

^ what harm has it caused? because ive been using norton internet security on my laptop since 2009, and its removed viruses on mine + my sisters laptops whenever (if they ever) came up, so i dont see an issue with norton

also, how is paying for security unnecessary? there are free alternatives out there of course, but for the most part, to put it plainly, they dont really work

I've only used free software for the past 5 years. My current PC has been in use since 08 and I've never had any issues whatsoever and I'm downloading random crap from all over the internet. Avast is all you need.

Norton gets in there and screws with the firewalls and the port forwarding. It's bloated and is a much larger program than it needs to be and can slow down the computer. Constant reminders and pop ups and the hogging of the PC's resources. Try uninstalling it and see how difficult they can make it.

Microsoft Security Essentials does the same thing, if not better and is free, same with Avast.

^ i never experienced any of the problems you've posted..i run two different operating systems on my laptop (one uses norton, the other doesnt), and for the most part, both consume about the same amount of system resources, so i dont think norton is the cause of any bloating

and regarding avast, all im going to say is, theres a reason why devs offer free and paid versions of the same software..one of the versions isnt going to offer the same features as the other

so its good avast is working for you, but theres a reason why devs offer free versions of software
