  1. Slowday . . . are you using AYRecovery? Does it also have its own defrag system -- and a "suspend" feature like Rollback RX? After doing some reading about this stuff, I was of the impression that the built-in defrags for these programs were more about defragging their snapshot tree images than about defragging your system hard drive. However, I'm not totally sure about this.
  2. The one downside I've found (which, of course, makes sense) is that once this rollback software is installed, you can't (or shouldn't) defrag your system any more. This seems to be true for all of these apps. However, RollBackRX has a suspend feature which allows you to use a third party defragger, but even that has a downside. You can read about it here.
  3. Everything you said, fireryone, was spot on -- problem fixed. Thanks so much for the help!!!
  4. I'd love to know too, Dennis. I haven't been able to find too many reviews for any of these products, and I don't know much about them.
  5. The "graphic" portion of my external hard drive icon has disappeared. I don't know where it went or why it's been lost, but it's no longer there. Any thoughts on where to find it or how to restore it. As I said, not a terribly important issue, just curious.
  6. Here's what it says: "How do I disable this? I wouldn't recommend disabling it, but if you must, you can do this by right clicking the MBAM tray icon, and unchecking "IP Protection"." I have done exactly this, but with every reboot, the IP protection is reactivated.
  7. When using MBAM commercial -- and running it active, is there any way to disable just the "IP Protection?" I've tried, but every time I reboot, it comes back.
  8. Is it fairly typical for the temperature of an external hard drive to run on the hot side?
  9. I don't really know. I'll have to check that.
  10. I currently have it set to Manual, which I believe is the default setting. However, I have also tried Automatic. Interestingly, it seems to respond about the same either way -- not much difference.
  11. So, Andaravi, can I interpret your statement as this is not particularly unusual behavior for VSC? Thought maybe it was just something on my end. It doesn't happen all the time -- it's sporadic. Your backup suggestion is a good one, but I use (and like a lot) Macrium Reflect, which uses VSC -- and also another program that backs up to an online server -- it also uses VSC. Seems like VSC is the "Service" of choice for these backup utilities.
  12. Exactly the way I have it set. For some reason, sometimes it just acts like it's not real stable.
  13. From time to time, I've noticed that my Volume Shadow Copy doesn't always activate when it should for a couple backup programs I use. After a reboot or two, it seems to "come alive" again, but that routine gets a little annoying. Any suggestions? Could there possibly be some settings that might need changing?
  14. My setup is a little different, but from my experience with Sandboxie, you should have no problem at all.
  15. Would it be possible to add and display on the GUI the last defrag date? EDIT: Sorry, this post should have been in Defraggler Suggestions.
  16. I've used SAS for a long time. I don't run it resident -- just use it for on-demand scans. It seems like launching the program itself -- and getting updates -- both take forever. Does anyone else experience this?

    need advice

    I've used it with both Firefox and IE7 with no problems. However, I'm not using it now with Firefox because I'm using FF portable on my HD and Key Scramble won't install due to the fact that FF is not in it's normal program location. There's probably a workaround, but I just haven't had the time to fiddle with it.
  18. Yes, I did buy the Pro version. Because of the amount of e-mail I receive on a daily basis, it was worth the investment to me. Regarding "previewing" the e-mail, I do that only occasionally anymore -- only if I'm absolutely not sure. MailWasher color codes the incoming mail, but I'm to a point where I can usually confirm the type of e-mail (spam or legit) just by quickly looking at the Subject line and/or the e-mail address of the sender. This approach is not fool-proof either, but it works for me. Like anything else, MailWasher is just a tool -- and I'm sure everyone comes up with a way of using the "tool" a little differently.
  19. I've used MailWasher Pro for several years -- wouldn't be without it! I get tons of e-mail -- much of it legitimate -- but this helps me sort through the pile very quickly. It does have a "training" component to it, so you need to give it a little time to learn what's good and what's not. Like everything, it's not 100% accurate, but it's amazing how well it does.
  20. The thing I don't like about most third-party pdf viewers, is that many don't seem to render the pdf image as well -- or as accurately as Adobe. Obviously, that's not too much a problem for the casual pdf user, but if you're a pdf "power user," it does become a more significant factor. And, by the way, you can also consider Adobe Reader Lite.
  21. That's good to know -- I'll check it out.
  22. How is the resident version on resources?
  23. I might as well get another opinion . . . do you think Malwarebytes Pro is necessary with AntiVir Premium (resident)?
  24. So, Andavari, are you saying you don't actually use the commercial version yourself -- or feel it's necessary?
  25. Thanks, Hazel. Can you really run Malwarebytes resident concurrently with AntiVir Premium -- or could it cause some conflicts? Better yet, is it even necessary?? For some reason, I thought AntiVir included some malware detection stuff of it own.
