  1. Latest spam scam http://www.sudosecure.net/archives/508
  2. Tom the Newbie, how did you remove Norton? Did you use Add/Remove Programs or Norton's un-install application? I think it is going to be confusing with two Toms with the IDs so close.
  3. I'm not sure what Andavari uses but I use Paint.NET to do things like that: http://www.getpaint.net I import the image into Paint.NET then manipulate it with its tools like Circle, Rectangle and Text input. It takes a while to get used to but it is fun.
  4. index.dat files for both IE7 and IE8 are special Windows files and are locked for its use. You will notice after a CCleaner Run that they are marked for deletion after a reboot: Marked for deletion: C:\Users\{User ID}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat After a reboot Windows re-creates them so it appears that they have not been removed but they will be compressed.
  5. Looks good but I miss the SiteAdvisor or Web of Trust (WoT) indicators.
  6. I use FileHippo.com Update Checker! beta to keep me aware of updates: http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker I like watching the eyes pop open while it checks to see if the system is up to date then disappear if it is.
  7. I like Event Log Explorer? http://www.eventlogxp.com <== it requires a Free license to use after 30 days It works on Vista.
  8. Un-check it. Hide or Unhide Notification Area (System Tray) Icons in Windows XP http://www.xp-tips.com/hide-system-tray.html <== works the same way for Vista Scroll down to PastIconsFlusher: http://raproducts.org

    memory extension

    That means that your system runs at that speed and DDR 800 modules can run up to 800MHZ. The RAM they quote is the cheapest they have on hand so that is why I recommend taking the system to a local PC shop for the upgrade as they will install the RAM and check for compatibility and give you a Warranty and probably match crucial.com's price. At least phone a local PC shop and give them your system specifications and ask them how much RAM upgrade will cost. DDR2 SDRAM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR2_SDRAM
  10. Nope I don't have a pornograph but I do like to look at Newest Rogue Threats to see what nastiness may come my way: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showforum=30 I like a Layered Defense and seeing as how Vista firewall has the built in capability for outbound protection that I have paid for I might as well use it.
  11. You three: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=130823
  12. I am using the Free version and its adequate for me http://www.sphinx-soft.com/Vista http://www.sphinx-soft.com/Vista/order.html <== download
  13. Watch out for Heracles and the Ides of March.
  14. I do not have UAC disabled and it is not a good idea to disable it. UAC is frustrating at first but I have learned a lot since using it and how to elevate the programs that I trust. I am relatively new to Vista so maybe one of the Vista veterans can assist with this.
  15. I would not do that. I Export my Windows Mail messages on the Vista system and Import them into Outlook Express on the XP Pro system. I sync My Documents Folders and IE Favorites as well.
  16. You would know it as it would begin to act really strange. Internet Explorer 7 is many more times secure than 6 and it has many nice features like ActiveX opt-in, tabbed interface, phishing filter and many more: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/...e/features.mspx I like it with IE7Pro: http://www.ie7pro.com
  17. Welcome LIL NOOB Windows Service Pack 3 has several Critical Security updates and has been available for almost a year now with a few updates in between delivered on Patch Tuesdays which is the second Tuesday of the month. Have you heard of the Conficker trojan that infected 10 million systems? http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=19870
  18. That's very strange as I don't have that problem on my Vista system. Have you reviewed all the Power Option settings?
  19. I installed O&O DiskImage Express on my new Vista system and let it make an image on my 80GB hard drive I salvaged from my dead PIII and put in a USB hard drive enclosure that took about 15 minutes but I hope I don't have to use it. The enclosure cost about $40 but It is well worth it to me as I keep things synchronized between my XP Pro system as I don't want to get into file and Folder sharing and revert to good old SneakerNet.
  20. Note: I noticed that PayPal is accepted through Visa or MasterCard but isn't that a two step process? I have to have a PayPal account to transfer money into a credit card account.
  21. What is wrong with using PayPal? I have a PayPal account but not a NoChex account. I generally do not like doing on-line transactions but the dealings with PayPal that I have had have been fine. By the way, if PayPal was accepted then I will make a small donation that I can afford. My durn Sciatica is acting up so it is going to rain or snow or even worse freezing rain. So much the the Golden Years I heard about:
  22. I don't have a problem installing Windows Live Messenger update but to not get Regcure from ParetoLogic as it has been known to produce False positives and will only remove them after purchase of their application. See negative comments: http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/regcure.com
