I recently downloaded Windows Defender. The only problem I have with it is that the darn thing will not stop updating. I have to turn it off to keep it from updating the same definition over an over. Any one else run into this or know how to fix it?

Has anyone run across this little problem? It just started happening on my PC.
Err Msg: "Cannot Open the Volume for Direct Access" When You Start ...

I can no longer check for file system errors. I looked through Microsofts info, and the only dirext reference to it I could find concern win200, or virus or disk monitoring software, neither of which I have changed recently. I have run all my adware/virus scans and done all the usual stuff you would do, but I am simply locked out of this tas...

Why aren't the animated gifs that are posted in the forums 'animated' when I use Firefox. They're animated in WC Browser and IE. Is there a setting I am missing or is this just FF? I have FF 1.5.

Also, I really like FF but am confused with 1.5. I saw in another post that it has reached 1.65??? and mine doesn't seem to be updating automatically like it should...or has there been no updates?

I recently created my first DesktopX Object (link below)


Now I would like to animate it. I have done all the work as far as Photoshop and Imageready. I have saved it in several formats (Gif, png, animated layers in both..) but I can't figure out how to save it in DesktopX as an animated object.

Some facts;
a. I have 57 files for the animation. (too much?)
b. It's not a simple 'resizing' animation. I have 'Fella' blinking and a couple other things.
c.I have read over the...
