Question: Will Microsoft ever implement Smooth Scrolling?

Hi all, new guy here....

I was wandering, will Microsoft ever implement (maybe upcoming SP?) Smooth Scrolling to Windows Explorer, in other words, windows and folders have jerky scrolling and i think SS would be nice!?

Preferred Solution: Will Microsoft ever implement Smooth Scrolling?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello SputnikNYC and welcome to the Forum. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your question but isn't smooth scrolling a mouse or touchpad function? On my laptop I have a Synaptics touchpad and it supports smooth scrolling in Windows 7.

Answer:scrolling is not smooth, how to fix?

Do you mean in your Browser, if so which one are you using?For IE here is how to turn off smooth scrolling, so you put a tick in the box rather than unticking it.If it is general issue maybe your mouse drivers need to be re-installed.IMPORTANT - Please come back and let us know the outcome.

Question: Smooth scrolling

Hi folks, a small problem you can maybe help me with.
On my XP computer I upgraded Internet Explorer from version 6, to IE8 a few days ago. Everything went fine, however I instantly noticed that web page scrolling has been affected, and is now very jumpy. Using the mouse wheel, the page scrolls in several jumps even after I let go of the wheel.
In IE I've looked at tools> Internet options> advanced, and under the browsing list have made sure that "use smooth scrolling" is ticked. Also in control panel mouse properties buttons, autoscroll, scrolling size is set to one line, and "use MS office compatible scroll only" is ticked. However, when I close the mouse properties box, I get a warning .... Run a DLL as an app has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.... Not sure what this means?
Funny thing is, I also runs Firefox on the same PC, and scrolling web pages on that is absolutely fine, perfectly smooth, no jerks, and one line at a time. So it's definitely IE8 related
As always, any help proffered is gratefully received.

Question: Smooth Scrolling

G'day, mates -

I canna get my browser (Firefox)to scroll smoothly..... every time I scroll up and down on a Web page, the image jumps, making reading text almost impossible. I've tried checking Smooth Scrolling under the Advanced tab (Tools/Options), but to no avail. I'm running XP HE (SP1) on a 1.8 GHz machine. I just re-installed XP, along with Adelphia's Freedom Security package, after wiping my hard drive clean to get rid of some remarkably persistent malware.

I've been into internet options on the control panel and smooth scrolling is enabled and it is also enabled in the registry- 0x00000001 (1). Has this happend to anyone else before?

Question: Smooth Scrolling!


I have Internet Explorer 6 and i got problems scrolling.

I can scrool and all with the scroll on my mouse but it seems to scroll like 5 lines at a time. And instead of actually scrolling the page, it pauses then moves 5 lines down.

I want smooth scrolling instead of skippign those 4 other lines it actually shows them but passes them quickly

Answer:Smooth Scrolling!

This is actually a hardware problem, I think. At least it was in my case. I had to install the graphics driver for my video card and one for my monitor. And all my scrolling problems went away.

What kind of video card do you have and what kind of monitor? If you don't have a cd (which I didn't in the case of my monitor), go to the web site and download the file. The only reason I had the cd for the graphics card was that my husband had just bought the same card for his system. Liz

Again, it sounds like drivers. Make sure the motherboard drivers are installed and up-to-date - espcially if it's a Via chipset board - and make sure you have the latest drivers for the graphics.Slow scrolling is almost always down to a system that can't cope with the load - your basic specs should be more than adequate, but drivers and other applications/viruses/Anti-Viruses/etc can slow things down.

My apologies if this has already been answered somewhere, I did a search but could not find it....

I have smooth scolling enabled for my web browser and it is nice, however for local windows when working on my computer I can't seem to make it happen. I found something called tweak ui that was suggested on another forum but it's "enable smooth scrolling" feature does not seem to affect local windows. The default "jerky" scrolling is just plain frustrating when scrolling through a long list of files looking for something in particular. When the list moves in large jerky increments it's very difficult to keep track of where you are in the list.

Is smooth scolling possible in all windows, not just web browsers???

I was wondering if there is any way to enable this behavior in the current driver. Also, is there any way I can change the amount of lines scrolled by the trackpoint? Changing the windows setting only seems to affect the touchpad, not the trackpoint. Perhaps there is a registry setting or something?

It's a waste for me to have 120hz monitor when I can only trully enjoy it during gaming or dragging and dropping files, icons, active windows etc.
When I scroll down using the mouse button or just dragging the slide bar, I get this very jerky motion, which is really annoying especially when you want to scroll through lines of text while trying to read them at the same time, looking for specific word.
I googled the problem but no solution came up. Luckily for Chrome I did find an extension called "Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller", its made by the same people who made "Yet Another Smooth Scroller" for Firefox. This extension works flawless and exactly what I wanted to achieve. Unfortunately now when I look at the rest of my desktop, scrolling through Total Commander, IRC, Foobar2000 makes it really painfully obvious how shitty the scrolling in Windows is.

Hi all

I like to work on my Word docs zoomed to 74% so I can see two pages at once, but very annoyingly Word decides that it would be just too easy if I could then use smooth scrolling when dragging the scroll bar! It reverts to a state of me dragging the scroll bar and seeing no change until I release the scroll bar. Very unuseful.

I'm on windows 7 Home premoium 32-bit, in case that matters. And I'm on a laptop so not using a mouse and its scroll wheel, and the scroll on the trackpad isn't working at the moment.

Surely there's a simple answer! But neither Word Help nor google revealed anything.

First of all, I'm not sure which forum I should use for this question, so if you're a moderator, please move it to the correct forum if appropriate.

Fortunately, I am able able to engage a form of smooth scrolling by clicking on my scroll wheel (I am a Windows 10 user) . It changes the cursor indicator to show that the "smooth scroll" is now engaged, and to initiate the scrolling I just move the mouse slightly. Acceleration, deceleration, or stoppage of the scrolling is accomplished with the degree of movement of the mouse (not the scroll wheel, in other words).

My neighbor, who also uses Windows 10, does not have this feature when he clicks on his scroll wheel. To see if it was an issue with his mouse I transferred my Logitech mouse and receiver dongle to his computer, but it didn't work either, so the smooth scrolling feature is apparently a software or perhaps a driver feature, but not a mouse hardware issue.

Does anyone know how to engage, enable, install (or whatever the appropriate term is) this form of smooth scrolling on a/any Windows PC?

I didn't find a good answer to that question by Googling it, even though I found one posting on how to engage an experimental feature by Google for the Chrome browser, which both my neighbor and myself use. I would think there's a broader, less specific and risky application available somewhere, somehow, but I haven't found it thus far.

I have this problem with my Tecra 9100 that after moving my cursor for a few seconds it 'leaps' to whatever direction I was pointing to. This is very annoying. Aswell as this, when I scroll, it is not smooth at all but like the cursor, it 'leaps'. So when I try scrolling down a page I've gotta be careful because it might just leap to the bottom! Thought I should also mention that dragging Windows is jumpy too.

I am almost certain that these three problems are all related to each other.

Before, my laptop was fine with none of the problems above. This was until error messages saying 'Delayed Write Failed' popped up out of the blue. Such errors I have found to be related to the hardrive not functioning correctly.

Optimisticly, I formated Drive C and put a fresh installation of Windows on to see if this would fix my problem. Surely it would?... Nope. How about I download the MouseWare driver that my laptop came with?... Still doesn't fix the problem.

I've run out of ideas and don't think a software update will fix my problem. I believe it's to do with my hardware (namely speaking, hard disks). I've got 2 hard disks. Coincidently, 'Delayed Write Failed' error messages shows up on both my hard disks.

Please reply, thankyou.

Answer:Tecra 9100: Jumpy cursor and scrolling not smooth.

Yes! I have finally distinguished what is causing my problems! After all the trouble I went through I have just discovered that a Video Card driver update is what fixed it! It's not perfect but atleast I can scroll alot more smoothly! :)

Used IE11 a small amount and smooth scrolling was working.
I Installed all cricitial and reccomended updates via windows update. Included was also a nvidia driver update. Rebooted of course/
Now in IE11 the smooth scrolling is always off, even with the box ticked.

I tried toggling the tick.
Tried using the reset settings option in IE11.
Still no smooth scrolling.
This is a clean install, no 3rd party software, no imported data.
No customisation of the ISO other than to add a EI.CFG to disable the requirement of a key.

While smooth scrolling works fine with my Chrome browser when I engage it by pressing down once on my scroll wheel, my neighbor, who is also using Chrome (We both use Windows 10 also), does not get smooth scrolling when you press down on his mouse's scroll wheel. Is that possibly because of his mouse's features /capabilities, a Chrome issue, or something else?

Thanks for looking

Answer:Pressing on scroll wheel does not engage smooth scrolling

Pressing the mouse wheel enables scrolling by moving the mouse (notice the mouse cursor changes). It's a Windows function and should work in all browsers. If it's not enabling, it's most likely a mouse issue. Could be a faulty mouse, or there is mouse software installed and the mouse button has been remapped.

The latest system update installed UltraNav driver of 4/6/2012.  This apparently implements smooth scrolling which is very nice to use BUT it significantly reduces my battery life.  I'd like to optimise battery life and return to my previous scrolling functionality.  I'd appreciate advice on how to determine which version of the driver I was running before this update, and how can I restore that version of the driver.  (I tried using the roll-back function in Windows Device Manager but that installed version of 7/6/2007 which disbaled scrolling altogether.) T617658CTO Windows XP SP3 

Answer:Restoring previous UltraNav driver to disable smooth scrolling

I stumbled onto the Fn-F8 facility for managing UltraNav and realise that I was confusing the smooth-scrolling function introduced in recent versions of FireFox with the EdgeMotion function in UltraNav which was presumable introduced on my system when I upgraded UltraNav from to  I have disabled smooth-scrolling in FireFox but enabled EdgeMotion in UltraNav which seems like a nice compromise between convenience and power consumption. I still have minor quibbles with UltraNav, specifically, when I try to scroll within drop-down boxes in my usual Web applications (like Redmine, for example) the drop-down pane immediately disappears.  I have to drag the pane control on the right (sorry, don't know the correct name for this) to find the option to select.  Before the upgrade I could scroll within dropdowns on the trackpad.  I also have a little block with up and down marks appearing to the left of the pointer arrow when I scroll which wasn't there before.  I'd appreciate any advice about addressing these issues.

BUG: hitting CTRL while the window is still scrolling zooms it
...I am now posting here as it turns out to be a driver related issue.I am running on a Y580, Win 10, got Lenovo Touchpad drivers installed via Windows Update.This has bugged me for a veeery long time and I finally figured out what causes it.The problem is this:
In any application where I scroll content, the "smooth" scrolling of the touchpad makes the display scroll even after I am done performing scroll gestures. In itself that ain't a bad thing, if only the application wasn't thinking I am still performing the gesture. Well, they all do. And that is a problem, because the second I touch the CTRL key, and I do that often, a ZOOM-EVENT fires and so I am constantly forced to reset the zoomlevel.Note that the current driver ui doesn't give me an option to disable smooth scrolling.In general, on the level of touchpad drivers, there needs to be a clear difference between "user is actually performing a scroll action" and "driver is still busy firing scroll events thanks to some smoothifying algorithmagic".
I now disabled scrolling in the driver settings alltogether and use TwoFingerScroll to do the scrolling; it allows me to set scrolling to "compatible" rather than "smooth". Scrolling now feels a wee more staccato but seeing an end to all the unwanted zooming that ain't a bad thing, at all.~FWIW, apart from some more tou...

Answer:Y580 - Problem: leftover momentum of "smooth" touchpad scrolling triggers zooming

I had this same problem when using Google Chrome on my T440s (under both Windows 7 and Windows 10). The continual zooming had been annoying me for months, until yesterday I figured out that I was pressing the control key while there was some still some scrolling momentum. Thankfully in my case the fix is simple: I have turned down the "scrolling intertia" in the Synaptics control panel, and I am no longer experiencing unintentional zooming.

Smooth Key Scroll - Chrome Web Store

My new Samsung 850 ssd scrolls too fast with the arrow keys on my keyboards, Samsung says noway. No matter what I try to adjust on my computer or ssd, it scrolls/jumps too fast and gives me headaches. My WD and Toshiba Disk drives are both normal scrolling speed, and fairly smooth with a little stutter. After three days of frustration I finally found this little app to control the scroll. I rarely use a mouse, just keyboards, one is wired and one is not. My computer must be weird, because as soon as the ssd goes in the scrolling becomes painful to look at. Plus I still get a some jitter just as I press the arrow key, then it smooths out, I have no idea what that could be.

Answer:Have you tried "smooth key scrolling" yet?

Interesting Web extension, although I find it funny you think the SSD had anything to do with chrome and its scroll speed.

I was playing GTA 3 without any problems on my old system, then a got a new one and well the game goes smooth, then its jerky and then all of a sudden its smooth again.
I use the games capability to play MP3's during game play that my old system never had a problem with, but with the current one sometime the audio (even the games built-in ones) goes a bit funny and skips like a scratched CD. (the actual CD is fine)
My old system was:

AMD K6-2 500MHz CPU
384MB-RAM (PC133)
Gigabyte GA-5AX Motherboard
nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 Video
Creative "Something" PCI sound
Windows XP Home

My current system is:

AMD Duron 1.3GHz
256MB-RAM (DDR 2700)
MSI KT3 Ultra2 Motherboard
nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 (the same card)
on board 6 channel surround sound (all but the front channels are disabled)
Windows XP Home

On both systems I am running GTA at: 640x480 32bit as thats all the old system could handle. I assume the new one should be able to cope with a lot better, but it doesn't.
Of course on the new system everything is cleanly installed, so I don't know where GTA is getting this problem from.

Hi guys n girls,

This is so annoying as it has happened before but I cannot remember how on earth I fixed it!!

I have a Microsoft wireless mouse (mobile mouse 6000), had it for 2 years and it's worked fine (except this issue once before). All of sudden tonight the mouse centre wheel starts zooming in and out instead of scrolling and left click is opening everything in a new window. My trackpad on the laptop is working fine.

Sony Vaio laptop, Win 7 Home, 64bit.

No software or hardware updates have happened, nothing in particular happened, I was scrolling through eBay and all of a sudden it stopped scrolling and started zooming!

My keys are fine, the ctrl keys are not stuck down. I have reset the mouse to default, re-installed the mouse, sworn at it, threatened it with violence, nothing, still the same.

Oh and my trackpad is doing the same thing, swiping it is zooming and when I try to left or right click it just freezes.

I have Googled the issue and all I can see is people giving stupid responses like changing things in the registry which I am not going to entertain, clearly this is something 'simple' that has happened so I am not going to mess up my laptop and start re-writing things on it!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I know it was something simple before but I really am so frustrated because I cannot remember what it was

Recently bought a MS mouse.

Have found that when I move the scroll wheel up or down more than really slowly
a little round icon appears with an up arrow and a down arrow. If the cursor is
above the icon, the page automatically scrolls upward without stopping, and the reverse for the cursor being below that icon. It starts without warning and always goes farther than I want and it goes so fast it's difficult, at best, to react to it before I'm way past what I want to see.

When I click, the thing goes away.

Any way to totally delete this annoying feature other than throwing the mouse away and
getting another Logitech?

Hey guys, my dad's laptop is having issues with scrolling when using apps by Microsoft. He stated that he first noticed this issue when he tried to play a game of Solitaire on the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app. The game would scroll the screen down all the way to the bottom of the main menu, making it very difficult to scroll back up to select a type of Solitaire to play. Fiddling around with the apps on his computer, I noticed that other Microsoft apps like Edge and the Windows Store displayed the very same behavior: automatically scrolling the screen or page down to the very bottom. No other programs like Firefox or other games have this issue. I tried different solutions like scanning for viruses/malware and reinstalling the apps, but with no change in their behavior after doing so. Can someone please help us out? We would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

EDIT: I just tried changing the touchpad settings and tried plugging in my wireless mouse to the laptop while the touchpad was disabled, but nothing seems to fix the issue we're facing.

Good morning.
I use a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard(900) & Mouse (1000) combo, purchased in same package with a single transceiver. All operations work perfectly on these wireless devices on Windows 10 except one.

When I am in anything "Microsoft", e.g., All Programs listing, MS Edge, etc., the scroll wheel function will not operate. I must use my mouse pointer to click and drag on the scroll bar. Drivers and compatibility are fine according to Microsoft online resources.

So, I tried using a Logitech wireless mouse and transceiver. Unfortunately, I had the same problem and could not scroll through All Programs or MS Edge. (Wheel works fine in MS Office Suite programs).

Has anyone had and solved this issue in Windows 10? I did read on a MS Win 10 FAQ page that other people have had scrolling / wheel issues. MS response: not all programs are created for use with the wheel.

I appreciate any responses in advance.

Hello guys, I was hoping you could give me some help.

Today my computer let me know I had to perform some updates, so I left it installing those updates since I knew it would shut down after.

I come home from work, and now whenever I use the scroll wheel to use smooth scrolling (clicking the scroll wheel) it is incredibly laggy in certain websites, it will not move at all unless I keep moving the mouse, but that is not how it should work. This only happens in ''intensive'' sites and when a video is running the video will stop until I stop trying to smooth scroll.

The only difference from happening minutes before the updates and right now... are the updates.

I don't know which ones were installed, so I guess bad me for not keeping track of that, but is it even normal?

Thanks for your time.

Answer:Latest Microsoft Updates messed up Scrolling

Okay, just found out what the issue might be, and it's incredibly stupid.

Whenever I zoom in a page with firefox just one value higher than the default zoom, scrolling will be incredibly laggy, but if I go back to default zoom it's fine again.

This is incredibly stupid to be affected by a windows update, but this did NOT happen before.

Did you implement a RAID storage technique -- which one?

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Drives) is tempting to many who get enticed by
the seductive list of benefits. IMO, the issues they create outweigh those benefits for
the average home user and just complicate systems management (ie: backup/recovery).

For those that have implemented RAID, please share with us the benefits and how you've measured or justified RAID.

I would never use any kind of fakeraid (read: the SATA crap you get with your motherboard) solution for the very reasons stated above.

what i don't understand is the difference 'tween "EXTENDS" and "Implements"

i understand you "extend" abstract classes as a way of code resuability (i.e. not re-inventing the wheel" and i understand that you "implement" interfaces for the same reason except that an interface reuses code for things that are similar but still different (eg. paying an invoice and paying an employee's salary - both are payables)

This question is for you VPN experts out there...

I've got a customer who is starting a small business. Initially, they will have a XP Professional desktop system (acting as a "server") and two XP Professional laptop systems. They plan on sharing communications for their DSL Internet connection via a NAT router. They will implement Windows Workgroup for networking the systems. The laptop users will also need to access their network from home via a VPN connection. So my question is this...

What is the best + easiest + most cost effective way to implement VPN for their small business? I think that they could use the XP Professional desktop for VPN, but I think that this would only support a single VPN connection. Windows Server's VPN is out since they don't have a Windows Server.

I have looked at the Linksys 10/100 4-Port VPN Router (RV042). Would this be a good way to implement VPN for a small business? If so, what VPN client software would you recommend?

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Answer:Best Way to Implement VPN for Small Business

This is kind of off track since you are on the right track with a VPN box at both ends. However, DSL providers in this area run through PSTNs ATM network.
If you don't ever plan on using your DSL connections for internet access you can set up an ATM end to end Virtual Connection through the ATM network and not hit the internet at all taking that chance of denial of ping out of the picture.
You'll need to check with your service provider to get connection numbers and details.

I currently have a network that has pretty much grown as required, and now I'd like to add some partitioning and management capability.

I've been discussing VLAN capability with zx10guy behind the scenes, and I thought I'd just jump out here and see if anyone has anything to add.

Right now, everything works and all machines and other IP devices are on a common subnet. The goal is to segregate the network so that some of the resources are protected while still allowing management and access to the whole network from a common point. Since this is my personal money, a major issue is the cost of doing this. Obviously, the switches will have to be changed to managed switches at the least.

Since I'd like some flexibility in managing the network, I'd like to do this with dynamic VLAN technology that controls access by MAC address rather than physical connection. I'm not entirely sure that this is practical given my cost constraints. I don't necessarily want all the workstations in a given location on the same VLAN.

Another goal is to allow at least one of the workstations access to the entire network to perform a management function. Again, I'm not sure exactly how I'll accomplish this across the VLAN boundary.

Another wrinkle is there are a group of NDAS disks that don't use TCP/IP for communication, and I'm not sure how the VLAN capability deals with that issue.

The switch family that seems to fit within my budget is the... Read more

Quick question and hopefully someone can give me some guidance. We currently have a single pix firewall as our main firewall. We decided we need to have redundancy so we have a second one now to do failover with. However it's also been decided to go to the newest software version(7.04) at the same time(we have the memory upgrade). The only thing I'm wondering is would it be better to do the failover FIRST and then the software upgrade or do the software upgrade individually and then do the failover.
I have been told to do the failover first but I don't exactly trust the source of it.
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Pix 7.04 Upgrade, should I implement failover before or after?

Just taking a guess, I'd say you'd want the latest and greatest software installed before making the failover change, in case there are improvements in the software to handle the failover. I've been too leary to update my PIXes to the 7 code after hearing a horror story or two about the upgrade killing a PIX. Let us all know how it goes.

Answer:Scrolling with Ultranav int+ext / Scrolling stops working after Reboot (T400 Win7 64bit)

When it stops working, look in Processes under Task Manager (show processes from all users) for the following three programs:- SynTPEnh.exe- SynTPHelper.exe- SynTPLpr.rexe

Greetings CH!What i have is a pentium series machine and its certified to run on windows Vista. Im trying to re install the OS on it (Acer Aspire AM1641). The issue im getting is the face that im in the installation screen and then it asks me and quote "a required DVD/cd device driver is missing. if you have a CD DVD floppy disk please insert it now" Is it asking for a chipset driver. If so i did use nlite to implement a CHipset driver into windows XP but it wont work for vista. the odd thing is that this machine is certified for vista. Any idea where to start? The machine to be more specific is a Acer Aspire AM1641-E3750 (M1641). i found the driver on acers site and burned it to DVD but that didnt work this is the page. but i got a feeling that the url ( ) nwont show the drivers to my machine.. how else can i get this sucker to work?

Answer:implement AHCI into vistas installation

You'll ideally want to get the Geforce 610i SATA/RAID drivers on a USB stick, which you can then insert when it prompts you for drivers and load them off that during installation.  It's a bit of a pain being an Nvidia chipset, but the way I would do it is as follows:Download the 32/64 bit drivers from here or here respectively.Save the file and then use a tool such as 7 zip to open it as an archive.Navigate to the IDE folder, then WinVista64, and extract the contents of the sataraid folder to your USB stick.  You might want to also grab the contents of sata_ide just in case - it can't hurt.Now, boot from your Vista disk, and you'll be able to load the drivers from your USB stick and hopefully continue the install.Let us know how you get on, hope this helps

Well it's time to remove the Linksys WRT160N from full-time operation as the main internet router. For some reason, the router will not open and sometimes close ports anymore. It is becoming quite an issue for me.

Long story short, I want to continue to use the Linksys, but only as a wifi hotspot around the house. I have a rack of Cisco routers and switches that I study with and one of the spare 1721 routers will become the main internet router. The ASA 5505 will be brought into the picture to provide firewall and port-forwarding services.

I'm looking for someone to provide a few "best practices" when it comes to properly implementing the ASA. Where do you place the firewall, in front of or behind the main internet router, etc.?

A little run down of what I have on our network. The DSL connection feeds the Linksys, and to the Linksys, I have one desktop computer, a Cisco Access Server for the rack, a D-LINK NAS unit, which I use with the built-in FTP server, and a web-power switch which I use to remotely control the power to the Cisco rack.

Ultimately, I want to be able to open ports to allow for RDP, FTP, as well as to be able to SSH into the Access Server for when I do studying remotely. I do not want to the rest of my internal network exposed to the outside, which I know can be taken care of with the ASA. As long as I can open ports for the programs that I need internally, I should be fine.

Any help you can give would be greatly ap... Read more

Answer:Implement ASA 5505 into existing network

The firewall goes on the outside of the router.

You should not open RDP to the internet. SSH and FTP....depends on how that machine is isolated and authenticated.

You probably should use the ASAs VPN capabilities to remotely access the network.

No one can even think of offering you specific config advice until you tell us the ASA software version. The syntax is different depending on the ASA software version.

I'm replacing my old computer with a new one, but using the same hard drives (2 Seagate Barracudas in mirror array). What I want to do is keep the operating system (WinXP Home), all the programs etc, files, pictures etc and just drop the hard drives into the new system (without wiping the hard drives).

Is there a problem with simply assembling the hardware as is, booting up, then uninstalling the old mobo driver and reinstalling the new one?

What's the right way to go about this? I'm totally confused and want to protect my investment in pictures, files, programs etc.

Answer:How to implement new mobo/CPU with same hard drive(s) ??
