  1. http://imgur.com/t1GtCFt I'm sure it's nothing, but I'm a little paranoid, so I thought I'd ask. It says that remote desktop is disabled, but why is console active?
  2. I personally double checked and it seems that defraggler keeps switching my free space and used space, sometimes just getting both completely wrong. They reset to normal again after a few cursory defrags. Is anyone else getting this problem and/or know how to fix it?
  3. Ah, I see, thanks! I was just checking the box for drives, I didn't see the option at the bottom of the cleaner screen. Sometimes your system doesn't actually "delete" the files that you tell it to; wiping the free space ensures that you're using the maximum amount of free space on your drive(s). The cleaner writes a large file (or chunks) as large as the free space your computer has (the real physical free space, not what it thinks it has) and then deletes it.
  4. I know that there's a checkbox for it under the Settings tab in options, but how do I actually make it wipe the freespace?
  5. I don't know how to solve your problem (sorry), but I will say this, I had to reformat my computer because I somehow became infected by "virtumonde" which avast just let right in through a torrented photoshop install. AVG on the other hand gave me a warning about the install and even told be what it was infected with; I've been clean for a while subsequently. Avast's free version seems like something they cobbled together to look altruistic - AVG's free version is on the same par with its 'pro', albeit missing a few valuable features. I'd recommend comodo firewall as well, but I had some gaming issues with it and online gaming protection programs (xtrap, gamegaurd, etc.); if that doesn't worry you then it's one of the best firewalls around.
  6. I use fire fox 3 on XP and my mother uses it on vista and we've never had any problems. It may be because my mother is a very a novice user, but if it get pasts kaspersky antivirus and the plethora of add-ons she's trawled over the years, I don't see why it shouldn't work for everyone. None of the new features are really all that useful, and firefox didn't hog resources before (it supposedly takes up less now); I would have much preferred for them to spend their time working on a new GUI tat isn't just splicing the back/forward buttons together and dwarfing the other icons.
