Orbit Downloader recently brought our LAN to a halt.  Where we should have been getting 2.2 mbps, we were getting 0.15 mbps.  I eventually performed an isolation test along with some bandwidth tests.  As soon as the offending PC was plugged into the LAN, the internet speed immediately dropped for all LAN users.  Very nasty.

To turn it off, open Orb preferences and untick this box:

Alternatively, just uninstall Orbit altogether.

What is Hash or MD5 checking?
A cryptographic hash function is a deterministic procedure that takes an arbitrary block of data and returns a fixed-size bit string, the (cryptographic) hash value, such that an accidental or intentional change to the data will change the hash value. The data to be encoded is often called the “message”, and the hash value is sometimes called the message digest or simply digest.

Basically, when you download something important off the Net, it lets you know that the file has not been corrupted or modified in some nasty way…

I have been experiencing some Event 1030 errors, and the ‘Details’ tab in the Event Viewer shows the following:

ErrorDescription Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.           following asf

To correct this, I have tried removing the stored usernames and passwords (on Windows Vista), using this technique:

  • Type Control keymgr.dll and hit ENTER
  • The Window Stored Usernames and Passwords opens, this is we’re you can edit, backup or remove them easily.
