  1. There's an old baseball saying I heard once that stuck with me I calls it how I sees it! So if you see it different then use what you sees.
  2. http://blogs.usatoday.com/technologylive/2...ers-poison.html Search Engine Optimization http://www.securityfocus.com/brief/701
  3. I haven't run Spybot S&D for ages so I'm not worried.
  4. Did your great grandparents run in the streets waving a red flag in front of the then newfangled thing called an automobile?
  5. My bets are on Sunbelt Firewall. How are you connected to the Internet and what is the modem make and model?
  6. I agree. I use MBAM and Windows Defender updated daily from its portal. Close Windows Defender then go to its portal then select 32 bit and Run it then restart its display interface so that you see the wall with the green check mark on it in the Taskbar: http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal <== current level v1.55.293.0
  7. I'm using AntiVir 9 Premium on my XP Pro 2.8GHZ P4 system with IE8 and its just as snappy as ever. What other applications are the whiners running that they don't complain about? The XP Pro system with 768MB RAM runs WinPatrol and Windows Defender resident and Malwarebytes MBAM on demand plus I do not use a software firewall as I use Windows firewall behind a hardware firewall.
  8. I have IE8 on XP and Vista and it is discussed in topic: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=21016 It seems that those systems that are a bit long in the tooth might have a bit of a problem with slowness of it and I am running it on my old 2.4GHZ P4 with 512MB RAM and it works fine. All of the systems have IE7Pro but the Vista system needs to have Show IE7Pro icon in the icon display area (*) in Preferences selected. The Firefox fanboys will be running around jumping up and down beating their chests uttering things like "Firefox rulz" or "IE sukz" or other juvenile words. There it no "Best" or "Secure" browser just people that know how to "Surf Safe" and enjoy "Safe Hex".
  9. Windows Defender is good and its the best application for monitoring the HOSTS file for modifications that the latest malware is choosing to infect. Close Windows Defender then go to its portal then select 32 bit and Run it then restart its display interface so that you see the wall with the green check mark on it in the Taskbar: http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal <== current level v1.55.276.0 What is the HOSTS file: http://accs-net.com/hosts/what_is_hosts.html Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
  10. I found that the advice Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference works well and they are of the Ferrous Cranus type of troll: http://redwing.hutman.net/~mreed/warriorsh...erouscranus.htm
  11. If you are that paranoid why are you using a computer?
  12. With Mute selected its good to fall asleep with though if the volume is turned up. Helps to block out the beeping horns, partying neighbors that don't invite you to their party and construction trucks I was going to insert the one that begins with "a" but I thought better of it. I prefer the sounds of waves gently breaking at the beach lounging in a chair with a cold beverage on a table beside me.
  13. The problem with that is that index.dat files can grow to a huge size as Windows never bothers to clean them out only re-create them at reboot if missing. How do I know? I have worked with Steven Burn the author Index.dat Suite to get it working on XP when XP came out: http://support.it-mate.co.uk/?mode=Product...=index.datsuite I haven't tried it on Vista yet. Steven is the author of hpHosts file as well.
  14. Welcome Steve. Have a look at the following discussion: CCleaner and Cookies http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=114838
  15. Do you have the latest NVIDIA drivers for Vista installed? Running Vista with only 1GB RAM must be slow? RAM is real inexpensive and the best investment you can make. I have 4MB RAM on my new Vista system and loving it.
  16. Thanks. Its in my Favorites now.
  17. I only use Defraggler to to defrag files that I frequently use. I never let it defrag the System Restore files as they are huge and can take a long time especially if you have System Restore set to its maximum 12% size. I rather use Windows defrag to defrag the whole hard drive and I only do that once per week. On Windows Vista that is the default and its set for Wednesdays if I remember correctly.
  18. Gates is a marketer and probably hasn't programmed a thing in his life.
  19. eBay should have Caveat emptor on its main page
  20. That's why we all help here. By the way, I can not do the same procedure on my Vista system as I can not get the authority to Documents and Settings Folder thus presenting another challenge.
  21. Resurrecting this old topic as I was having a problem of having to log in again after reboot. IE8 cookies are in C:\Documents and Settings\{User ID}\Cookies\index.dat and needs to be excluded.
  22. I'm puzzled as even on my old XP Home system it starts and works about the same as IE7 did? It is only 2.4GHZ P4 with 512MB RAM
  23. Have a look at PureRa: http://raproducts.org
  24. I hate imageshack as it takes too long to display and usually takes 3 clicks to see the pic. The History pop up flashes so quickly that if I blink I miss it. Un-check it if you don't want the History cleaned. Re: Yo Yo Ma! I don't play the Chello but I have been known to fiddle around with things: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZn_VBgkPNY
