  1. Sometimes the firewall GUI will automatically open after Log On, sometimes it won't. There is no notice whatsoever!!!
  2. The CCleaner Forums were running very slow earlier today, therefore it most likely isn't a SpywareBlaster issue.
  3. Exactly, and it can also be made into a scheduled task using Task Scheduler, it can be ran as much as needed.
  4. Wouldn't defragging the hdd place other data in the particular disk clusters to make the removed data non-recoverable? With the size of current hdd's I can only imagine how long it would take to just do 1 pass of overwritting with an erasing program let alone 3 or 7.

    .ogg to mp3

    Yup. I only wish people would learn that trancoding is evul, it introduces more artifacts, and the diminished quality is a nightmare! The .ogg can also be played back in the free player Foobar2000 http://www.foobar2000.org
  6. Here's some information and a warning for fellow ZoneAlarm (Free Edition) users, I hope this keeps you protected! ---------- Version: ZoneAlarm Firewall (Free Edition) 6.0.631.002 OS: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 ZoneAlarm Firewall (Free Edition) v6.0.631.002 has an reproducible error which is: Log Off -> Log On -> System Error within ZoneAlarm (Free Edition) The system error is severe in that all protection components aren't active. The only solution is to reboot when the error is encountered. To stop the system error from occurring don't Log Off, hence the firewall may not function correctly when you Log On again. Note: Although the behaviour is reproducible it doesn't happen 100% of the time. Screenshot:
  7. TUGZip could really shine as a good freeware archiver if only the programmer would fix some obvious typos in the program.
  8. He's talking about layering to detect more malware, when in honesty a great majority of people are already layering their protection and detection by using a multitude of programs. It's been known for years that using one security program (antivirus, antispyware, etc.) can't be fully trusted to be 100% effective all the time, however even using one program (free or pay) is better than nothing at all.
  9. Change it in "Tools->Folder Options->File Types"
  10. DL'd from http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/ZoneA...ee/1023831973/1 since the Zone Labs website is a damn mess to find anything on. I wasn't aware of the spyware blocker being only in the paid version since it installed the spyware.dat file with the free edition.
  11. Try this: 1. Close Firefox. 2. Run Foxit Reader, and click: Help -> Set to Default PDF Reader 3. Close Foxit Reader. 4. Start Firefox and run a PDF from a website to see if it worked. If it doesn't work you may need to manually set the PDF MIME type in Firefox. Here's some instructions to do just that: MIME Type: application/pdf Description: Adobe Acrobat Document Extension: pdf Open with: The path to FoxitReader.exe, e.g.; C:\Program Files\Foxit Reader\FoxitReader.exe It should something like this (screenshot taken from Mozilla Suite):
  12. It's alright on my end. The only problem I had was trying to use my v5.5 configuration, it caused a load of problems therefore I completely uninstalled it and started fresh. It does have some extra defenses such as built-in spyware protection (even the free edition) via: "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ZoneLabs\spyware.dat" which isn't exactly a small file at "546 KB (559,170 bytes)."
  13. Excuse me if this post of mine is stupid! What do you mean by open in a tab, a tab what? "In a browser tab," or "something else."

    New Record?

    Now that's a good deal!
  15. Thank you, that'll stop me from having to manually remove it in order to get a clean install when a new version is released. I'm too lazy to make another home-made script to remove it.
  16. For Internet Explorer I know of none since the installation requires Active X, whereas with other browsers an actual setup file is needed therefore one is provided. It can be automatically updated by running (note: the updater may take several minutes to display a dialog): C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\GetFlash.exe

    New Record?

    It's easy to tell if a system is well overdue for a cleaning just how it performs, and how the hard disk trashes. I remember a companies computer that had WinXP Pro which was acting really strange and super slow due to the fact it never had any junk files removed, and was never defragmented.
  18. Years ago it went from "download.com" to "download.com.com" and typing in download.com would take you to download.com.com, now they've reversed it. Someone on that site is smoking something.
  19. "C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile Name\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player" Of course this is where it stores stuff from Mozilla, and Opera. I don't use Internet Explorer so I'm not sure if IE's stuff will go there or in the Temporary Internet Files.
  20. I don't know what it's trying to do, however I did have to add the application data folder where it puts its junk into the CCleaner Custom Folders in order for the junk to get deleted.

    Along with antivirus software that's easier on the system the slowdown can also be the result of not defragmenting your hard disk often enough, or not at all. You can defrag your hard disk from: Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Defragmenter
  22. For Internet Explorer it'll be easy to detect from: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\Flash.ocx For third-party browsers that's where things are going to be tricky, hence any one can change the installation directory. For Mozilla Suite (default install directory): C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\plugins\NPSWF32.dll For Opera (need to detect where it's installed via the registry since Opera Software likes to put version numbers in the install directory name): HKCU\Software\Opera Software C:\Program Files\Opera ###\Program\Plugins\NPSWF32.dll
  23. In the registry it'll be here: FlashPlayer: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macromedia" Not sure if this is a part of the installation or not: Shockwave: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Macromedia" On the hard disk it'll be here, this is the location it stores stuff you've viewed from flash enabled websites: "C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile Name\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player" Note: In CCleaner's winapp.ini file it already detects this stuff, the only way for it to clean Flash is if you actually visit a Flash enabled website that puts stuff in: "C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile Name\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player" Of course if the stuff in the Macromedia\Flash Player folder isn't getting removed you can always add it to CCleaners Custom Folders option.
  24. Good info. I check for a SpywareBlaster update everyday yet I completely forget about it's Tools section. 1. Only download Flash Player from macromedia.com, you may need to invoke the installation by visiting Macromedia's trigger page: http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/downlo...mcom/flash.html or by visiting a website that requires flash such as the automobile manufacturer Ford: http://www.fordvehicles.com/. For Firefox, Mozilla Suite, and Opera you can download it at: http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/downlo...=ShockwaveFlash 2. I used to know how to uninstall it many years ago, however I deleted the script. The only thing that's really necessary in making sure you're getting a "clean install" when installing a new version is to delete "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed" followed by a reboot, and then install the new version. This will allow you to only have the most recent version installed. 3. The settings can be changed when you're visiting a flash enabled site, just right click mouse click when you're at such a site to change the various settings, etc.
  25. I forgot to mention that some commercial programs also require it, as do some audio CDs that have music videos.
