  1. One billion downloads means that there are alot of happy users that keep coming back for more. Let the hard working people at Piriform have their moment in the spotlight.
  2. An American Billion isn't quite worth what it use to be. Thank you for keeping our computers free of useless files. I'm looking forward to the upcoming details on the Cloud and Mobile products. Congrats!
  3. This is also a useful tool from grc.com to help one choose. The fastest servers may not be the safest. https://www.grc.com/dns/dns.htm
  4. urlQuery.net is a service for detecting and analyzing web-based malware. It provides detailed information about the actions a browser takes while visiting a site and presents the information for further analysis. http://urlquery.net/...rt.php?id=77737
  5. No problem saving or deleting an exclude entry to registry. No problem saving an exclude entry to the INI file. The problem is deleting an exclude entry in the INI file whether using Vista or XP. The entry remains in the INI file after deleting and resets the entry after restarting Defraggler.
  6. Settings saved to INI file. I removed one entry from the exclude list as follows. 1) Highlighted file path. 2) Clicked on delete. 3) Clicked yes 4) Clicked OK If I click on the exclude tab again, the entry is gone. If I close Defraggler then re-start Defraggler, the entry returns. If I repeat steps one through four, then save the settings to the registry and then back to INI file the change is remembered. v2.11.560 Vista sp2 XP sp3
  7. Since I started using Defraggler in v2.10.424, I've always had these three options enabled . I still get alot of fragmentation when using the normal mode of defrag freespace.
  8. It does seem a little slower than 2.10 but I would need more runs to confirm this for sure.
  9. I noticed that as well in the normal mode of defrag freespace. I start out with no fragmented files then end up defraging from the file list afterward. It was also present in v2.10.424. No big deal here, but it would be nice to see it do better if possible. Vista sp2 XP sp3

    Updating drivers

    Is there a trusted program to identify outdated drivers with links to downloads?
  11. It calculates your disk performance and shows a result like "Random Read Speed: 2.52 MB/s ". I would think it could be used as a before and after defrag comparison. I'm not sure about its full use but that's the basic function.
  12. I'm not trying to convince anyone that you should remove the program names. It was unnecessary to list them in my case because I have no desire to learn how to test my WiFi via one of these programs. If I'm doing all I can to secure my wireless network, that's all I want. I'm comfortable with what's been said here regarding how difficult it would be to set up a program to decrypt my access point password or captured packets. Thank you
  13. @ Super Fast I fully understood your intentions were to help educate and not to encourage the use of such network protocol analyzers for malicious intent. I think its ironic that there are such programs that can be used for education and other legitimate uses on one hand, and malicious intent on the other. ShieldsUP for example is a great way to test your firewall but it doesn't show you how to bypass a firewall. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I thought it would be best to leave the cookie in the jar rather than put it out on the table. ShieldsUp https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2
  14. :lol: Thanks to both of you!
  15. I didn't include the names of the programs I saw because I don't want to encourage anyone to learn how to do this. Feel free to remove the names of the programs you listed. If I have a hacker neighbor or a drive by hacker, can they get information like destination ip addresses and passwords. I've taken all of the available steps to protect my connection and I have a long difficult password. Don't they need my password to decrypt the packets? Would it be recommended to do such business as banking on a wired connection only?
  16. I read that there are programs that have decryption support for WPA2. Does that mean that someone can grab your WiFi packets and decrypt them? If so, what information can they get from them?
  17. According to filehippo.com the latest version is... http://www.filehippo...gler/tech/8084/
  18. Please take a look at the first picture and you'll see that I made defraggler look like yours... http://postimage.org/image/ok20larur/ If you move your mouse over the areas where the red arrows are pointing, you'll see arrows like the black ones. when visible, left click mouse (hold) and drag up or down to resize window. 1) Resize drive window. 2) Resize the square boxes (files) window. By left clicking mouse (hold) and dragging down, I made the window look like this... http://postimage.org/image/4d990vin9/
  19. It looks like you just need to adjust Defragglers view of the files. There are two points on the GUI that you can left click and drag to adjust the window.
  20. After excluding a 120 MB antivirus database file, it still shows up in analysis results. 1) Analyze 2) Defrag all files in the file list (antivirus database not listed) 3) Analyze (file list shows no fragmented files) 4) Analysis results under status still shows 1 fragmented file (120 MB) (antivirus database) Defraggler v2.10.424 XP sp3 & Vista sp2
  21. After analyzing then viewing the file list, having the ability to right click and add to exclude list would be a nice feature.
  22. It would be great to see this as well as the total time elapsed for an action.
  23. I'm just going to use Analyze then defrag from the file list (check all) then Defragment Freespace in Normal Mode (weekly) and see what happens. I agree that the regular defrag can be time consuming and not to mention the wear and tear on a hard drive.
