I have three AOL 9.o security programs on my computer. They each use up about 85mb. One is labeled just AOL 9.o, another AOL 9i.0a and a third AOL 9.0 b. Can I safely delete two of them? I need the space.

I am running out of ideas on what is wrong with my K 3500. The truck is overheating and I can't figure out why. I have changed recently the starter, alternator and tensioner system. It has a new belt, which I have rechecked to make sure it is routed properly. The last oil change was done at the time it was overheating, and the oil pan was dropped at this time, I had no water/antifreeze in it so I don't believe it is a head leak. All the hoses are new and are not cracked so I am not leaking there. And I have just put in a new performance thermostat. I am running out of options and I do not want to pull the engine and start from scratch. I wasn't planning on pulling the engine for at least one more year. Any help on why I am overheating? It has me stumped. Thanks.

Without seeing it for myself I can only make suggestions here. The fan should be of the correct size and in balance. The fan clutch must have slight resistance but room for free rotation at stop. There should be no play in the water pump and no weeping or noise, if it is doing this, it's time to replace it. If you have leaking, it is very difficult, but you will have to locate the source with mirrors, a good flashlight and have the ability to get under and around the engine. Sometimes the location of the leak may not be the source since it will travel with the fan running.

The fan shroud should not be improperly installed, missing or damaged. If you have no leaks whatsoever, isolate your heater core and run the engine to see if it gets too hot. You can do this best by bypassing the heater core or just turn the heat(and blower) wide open and see if the engine temperature regulates. Look to see where the heater core hoses join the engine. Some mechanics put too much sealant around the fittings and it tends to clog the connections.

OK, so far no results? Now it's time to take the radiator off and take it to a shop that can rework it. When you get it back you should flush the whole system. We're not done yet............check all hoses visibly and internally for obstructions, heater hoses radiator hoses, etc. Replace them accordingly. When you are finished, put the correct ratio of antifreeze to water mixture back into the truck. 'Water only' will not work because it can hide other problems such as the one you are having with this vehicle.

All of this is assuming that you have already replaced the thermostat. The vehicle may have a large obstruction of deposits in the engine. This can be from incorrect gaskets restricting the flow or an attempt by a previous owner to cover up an existing problem before selling it to the next poor soul. Keep trying and let me know what you find. If I can't help you I will find someone who can. Good luck.

Thanks, I was thinking of the water pump myself. It is the only belt driven part I havn't replaced. It doesn't seem bad though and I had no idea where to look next. Now at least I may be able to fix this problem and still be able to finish upgrades for the car show season.

There is no sound from my PC, all audio settings are correct. What can be wrong and how do I fix it?

Discuss this question

Question found in Software
Check your sound card by using headphones. If you have sound it will be the speakers power or connection. If not, it is most likely an incorrect setting or worst case, the sound card may be defective. Most PC's have a on/off setting in the BIOS. Check your manual for this and it will guide you in troubleshooting it as well.

I want to lose some weight by eating healthy & exercise, my only problem is the I have a real sweet tooth & just love chocolate & biscuits with my cuppa. I've tried many a times & gave in to my cravings. Please help! What can I have instead of chocolate? If only some-one could invent healthy chocolate.

This may sound corny, but I recently bought a fresh pineapple because of my sweet tooth and the curiosity of wanting to grow my own. I ate the whole thing and actually will be adding more to the very few fruits I do keep at home. It is much better than I remembered and I can't think of anything I've tasted so sweet in a long time. It has curbed my appetite for the chocolate that I know is waiting for me in the kitchen. I actually look forward to the next one which surprises even me.

I have a very damaged back and neck but I also have an energetic German Shepherd who loves to walk. Although it hurts me physically every time to do this, I will take her for walks at least twice a week. As a former lineman, my legs require activity but cannot handle too much so I also bought another motorcycle after 12 years of not having one. The purpose of it is for increased balance and strength, increased heart rate, adrenaline and blood-flow to my legs mainly. It's a cruiser but heavy enough to slowly introduce me back into some kind of exercise.

These are just some ideas but everyone has their own methods for doing this and maybe it will help you. Good luck to you.

I am told electromagnetic waves have two components at right angles - a magnetic field and an electrical field. I was always told that an electrical field is created when a current flows-say within a wire. So how can a wave have an electrical field when no particles such as electrons are present?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
Your answer will still always be the amount, type of, or the presence of resistance. Electrons and the change in their environment, for example, lightning and the path followed, determines the amount EMF generated. Read a little about the shadows created from the atomic blasts in Japan during world war 2.

Should all countries be allowed nuclear weapons?

Discuss this question

Question found in Cultures In General
Absolutely not. Imagine that if Hitler had succeeded in his nuclear program, and he would have, or if Japan did during the 2nd war, (they were working on one too), and if the allies were not able to prevent it? We would be much like Russia or North Korea but the whole world would be under those types of governments.

Iran's government leaders are an outstanding example of this. Picture in your mind of how we will provide for our families when there is no oil, gas, electricity, jet fuel or diesel fuel for trucks, ships and trains to haul food. All because one religion hates the others. Do you know how to grow food? Can you do your job from a bicycle? This will be much like the wild west but we will also be under strict religious rule, probably a radical element which will opress women, and will be mob rule and no court system. Do you think that if we stand by and allow these countries to test our resolve but do nothing that they will go away?

I used to be unconcerned about these threats but not so much now. Someone will use a nuke to prevent a global nuclear war. It is a hard fact and we will see it happen within 2 to 5 years. It's like having a loaded gun without a safety. You never know at all times if it is being pointed at you by an idiot or a country in unjustified fear. In either case, the gun will always be fired and we all hope it is not us being targeted.

I was arrested for DUI. I was not mirandized ever.. also, the officer did not sign the Pre-booking & cite information.... Do I have a case? and what should I do?

Discuss this question

Question found in Human Rights
Miranda applies mostly if you are arrested and detained pending a preliminary hearing for bail. An officer cannot write a ticket that you aren't present to sign. You have a case if you were written a citation after you have left the DUI stop and field test, did not know about it, and did not examine then sign it, and then receive a copy.......usually in that order. If you are charged for additional offenses, then he is required to inform you while in his presence. His id number is required, but not his signature on all documents.
