    I am currently having difficulty with right clicking on the desktop (any program, file, folder, etc.). Once I right click it doesn't do anything and just freezes. I have control of the mouse but I cant click on anything. I have to hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and end ctfmon.exe and then log off my account and then it asks to end explorer.exe and then I can log back in.

    I have recently come across Shell ex view and when I disable a couple context menus it seems to fix it, SOMETIMES. I disable these two context menus;

    1. nView desktop Context Menu
    2. NVIDIA CPL Extension

    I am currently using a HP dv2000 laptop w/ Windows XP.

    Any laptop gurus out there?

    sounds like a corrupt profile or a good chance that is what it is. The best thing you can do is create a second account with admin rights rename the old profile then logback in with the account and you will have to copy over your favorites and any files in my documents which is why I said rename and nor delete it. The quick test would just to create a new login ID and if you have no more issues you have your answer so it sound more like an OS issue not a laptop issue

    The Nerd Herd would have charged you a good 100$ for fixing that, you know? :D

    While let me know if you need any pointers on print servers or IIS servers; heck I can help some on VMware as well (give me a year and I will be able to ramp up even more knowledge on VMware as we implement it)

    :)

    I am not a nerd just a proud Geek :p:

    I have our entire data center 90% virtualized now, running ESX 3.5 and preparing our upgrade to vSphere 4.0. Vmware is probably the best product I have ever worked with in my entire career. It most certainly is the coolest.

    We have 5 ESX servers and 60 production/dev and test vms running in one virtual dc and we only use about 30% of our environment.

    10 CPUS and about 640 gigs of Ram. We run this off our a netapp 3140 w/ 15 TB of raw disk w/ redundant iscsi/fiber backend. It is...well it is ..I love it. :D

    We just started implementing it; I changed job roles like 6 times in the last 1.5 years. I was on VMware off due to organizational change and now back on :D Which is what I wanted. I just went to vmare 4.0 training and in January going to start studying for the cert my manager wants me to get; so I am going to crank it up after the holidays.

    We will upgrade to 4.0 end of next year most likely !

    Have you looked into the Enterprise plus licensing for the vDS and also getting the Cisco 1000v api plugin to go with it that stuff will rock and keep the networking guys from complaining anymore and give you better network troubleshooting.

    NO ISCI for us we are a direct fiber channel shop fiber and we currently are pushing 750 physical servers and three building coming on line in the next two-three years so it will take us a while to migrate the servers. We are using it as part of the life-cycle of the hardware to make it manageable

    Ok we just made a couple people heads explode and eyes glass over

    What a perfect scenario to implent vmware for. I love P2V moves. They are a kick in the butt when things are working properly. It appears you have many in your future.

    I read an article just the other day using the same scenario you have here to maximize a customers udp performance on their network.

    Im going to look into this. :D
