  1. Sorry I didn't read this thread until after I'd updated. Started getting numerous "site not loading" results from OpenDNS. Disabling Site Advisor fixed the problem. All I can say to McAfee is "Bah Humbug" for destroying such a wonderful program. Merry Christmas to All.
  2. Thanks davey. Yep I'm using Vista Home Premium. WMI tracing logs are turned off, but according to link "The system will create the file for it even if disabled, it just won't write events to it and make it bigger than 16MB." This seems to be how my system works anyway. Even if CCleaner deletes the file it just comes back. Ralph
  3. You're welcome davey. Apparently Windows just recreates this file if you delete it. So I just added it to CCleaner's exclusions. Problem solved. Ralph
  4. I have the same thing happen with files deleted exceeding the analysis by about 16MB. This is the file that does not get analyzed but gets deleted: C:\Windows\system32\wbem\Logs\WMITracing.log 16.0MB. Doesn't seem to cause any problems though. Ralph
  5. You might be remembering some of my old posts. Unfortunately, I'm becoming somewhat of a one-trick-pony on this issue . Although the link doesn't seem to be relevant it does work, at least with XP.

  7. Shot in the dark but you might try Display Properties>Settings>Advanced> and make sure DPI=96 (Normal).
  8. Good point. Personally I've tried a number of HIPS and Firewalls with HIPS. As a rule of thumb if I find I'm clicking on the "Allow" button without reading the prompt, then I'm getting too many prompts and the "Protection" afforded by the HIPS is purely illusory. I'd probably automatically click "Allow" if I got any malware. Others may be more conscientious with prompts than I am. Different strokes for different folks.
  9. I take it all back. Lusher was right Defense+ became unbearable pretty fast. TryingOnline Armor Free. Promising.
  10. Hooray, I'm above average. Only HIPS I've used before was Process Guard which generated a prompt if you picked your nose. Comodo HIPS certainly not as quiet as the developers led us to believe. For me uses about half the resources of v2. Still I don't think I would recommend it to someone "average".
