    Get this once in a while on certain sites, has something to do with their site needing to use flash player, sometimes I'll let it update so I can use the site other times the site works without updating. Don't think it's a problem really, just some sites still use the older flash player. Nothing ever shows up when I run scans after updating it.

    Comcast Modem Replacement

    For the price Netgear is always good price vs speed, just make sure it's compatible with comcast. The speed depends on how much you want to spend .

    Why all these similar items?

    +1 on ir's post, I removed them all but the latest a few years ago and half my programs quit working or giving errors and had to reinstall them all eventually, if it ain't broke don't try to fix it.

    Thermal monitoring

    I've been using hwmonitor for years , still works good .
  7. Should be safe, fsb does not effect voltage as far as I know, worst that can happen if too high pc will not boot or will bluescreen during use, then it's time to lower it.

    Barton 2600+ 50oc Idle Temp?

    It's hard to give advice on a 18 year old cpu, I had one back in 2002 and if I remember correctly it oc'ed best by uping the fsb until I had issues and then backing it off to stable, as far as temps I hope your talking F and not C, if it's F you are in the right ballpark.

    Upgrading Laptop Components

    No, laptop graphics are soldered to the mb, the most you can upgrade on a laptop is memory and maybe an ssd hard drive, if you want better graphics buy a gaming laptop with better graphics on the mb.

    2 TB hard drive problem

    occ rules, I believe after 10 posts you will be able to post anytime you want, keeps the spammers out.(sometimes). I don't know if I would put any more money into that drive, if it's clicking the problem is more than just a circuit board replacement and it most likely won't last long even if you do get it to read and write. Those 2 tb drives are very cheap to buy brand new and ssd's are also less expensive in the last year.

    Single player games

    Played the first Watch dogs and enjoyed it but got about 1/3 of the way threw the second one and gave up on it.

    2 TB hard drive problem

    I'd use linux to run a hd test on it, most likely it has a hardware problem, if possible remove it from the usb3 case and plug it into a sata slot on the pc, that will tell you if it's crap or not.

    laptop for normal gaming?

    I still can't see getting a gaming laptop for $250 even used, maybe $500. But then again I'm in Canada, you guys in the states get everything cheaper than us,lol !
