Wink Re: "My name is Markus"...

I hear ya Jer

Just reading the Cad-ad ... and wondering why the Cad. SRX crossover only has 265HP when my 2010 Traverse LTZ has almost 300 with the same drivetrain
It also isn't availble with a trailering package
And weights over 400 lbs more
They don't look like they stack-up well compared to the Chevy/Buick/GMC offerings
Glad I didn't wait for them to come out like the dealer recommended

Sorta at work today ... could you guess

Re: "My name is Markus"...

It will only get worse as predicted. I thought as paid members you weren't suppose to get ad's? I am leaning toward not renewing my membership next year if this keeps up.

Re: "My name is Markus"...

I just performed Ron's fix and there are no more Caddy's on my page..so nice!

https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...57#post1343957
or...

A) Download file http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.zip
B) Unzip it!
C) Find the mvps file- double click on it..it will activate and send to the correct place here are the instructions if you need them- http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/readme.txt
D) My XP puter ran slowly at (Camaros.net) so....a large HOSTS file (over 135 kb) tends to slow down the machine. This only occurs
in 2K/XP/Vista. Windows 98 and Windows ME are not affected.

To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor"

Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)
Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: Properties
Click the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"
Select: Manual, click Apply/Ok and restart.

Ditto. The folks that are regulars here are still good people to talk cars with, but since we see a new ad or contributor to the site daily, why do they need my money? Heck I don't charge for advice I give, good OR bad...

Re: "My name is Markus"...

The hosts file trick should work on all windows platforms including win7 where you will find "hosts" and "lmhosts.sam" living in "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC" just like vista and xp...
