  1. Cool. I just checked out that Leaktester results. Those were pretty nice, and all in favor for Kaspersky.
  2. Wow, Miranda IM looks pretty sweet. Do you think it's better than Gaim? (Link) ~Ron
  3. Both hardware and software firewalls. Hardware Firewall: Alpha Shield Software Firewall: Kaspersky Internet Security
  4. I just found the best firewall ever! Kaspersky! Their main website is here. http://www.kaspersky.com Kaspersky Firewall is excellent! Norton, McAfee, ZoneAlarm, BlackIce take up sooo much space and ram on your computer and takes around 20 or 30 seconds to load (on my computer) but unlike kaspersky, it's not a resource hog nor slow at catching/blocking unwanted data. My Task Manager: Is your commit charge as low as mine? I'm running two programs in this picture other than the firewall. I'm running Spybot's TeaTimer.exe, uTorrent.exe (a BitTorrent program), and of course, Mozil
  5. Would you really want to risk your computer? Especially when firefox is pretty similar to IE and has so many extra features. I heard IE 7 Beta 2 has a lot of the same features, but it's huge! I have clicked on a link once (with javascript to not let me see where it was going) and when I clicked on it, it took me to a crack website. I thought I was going to get spyware, you know? I didn't, I checked my computer with norton, mcfee, spybot, spyware blaster, and everything else on my computer. I talked to my friend about it, since this link was on ebaums world, and he said he had clicked the s
  6. I never said they never updated. I said Hardly ever updated. Looks like crap was just my opinion, you can have your own. Andavari, Oh I didn't know that. I knew about the IE tab, just never really bothered with it. I'll edit the first post though.
  7. Here's a quote I found funny. "Fat people are brilliant in bed. If they are sitting on top of you, who's going to argue?"
  8. How about CCleaner acting like an install manager. Let's say... you downloaded a .exe file called uhh Spybot.exe or something and had it in C:\Downloads\. Then you right click on spybot.exe and click on Open With CCleaner and CCleaner will scan the registry and files and folders on your computer and then install spybot.exe and then scan the registry and files and folders again and next time when you want to remove spybot from your computer. All you do is open up CCleaner and uninstall it. This will uninstall it completely. There is a program called Total Uninstall 3 that does that, but
  9. Most people get viruses from Internet Explorer. Why keep using it? It has terrible security, crashes many times, and pretty much to sum it up: It blows. So why not go and use other browsers such as Mozilla Firefox. Look at these positives and negatives of each browser. It's amazing how bad a browser can suck when there is even a smaller browser that came out in 2004 (firefox) which is about 1000x times better. Firefox + Very easy to customize and style + Internet Options very simple to manage + A nice Bookmarks toolbar + Able to install many many extensions which are on the mozill
  10. I know lol. It's a google joke. They don't like him and most people don't like him either. I guess you do though.
  11. Go to www.google.com and type in the word "failure" without quotations and then click on "I'm feeling lucky". See what you get.
  12. More flaws in Window's Security!? lol. I'm glad I switched to linux. Ubuntu Linux rocks.
  13. Hello all, I have BitComet running on my computer, and when I run ccleaner (usually daily), I keep seeing that the extension .torrent is not used and it is used lol. Well the first time I found it, I 'fixed' it. Then rebooted, ran ccleaner again and it found .torrent file extension was not being used.. again. It was found in this registry directory. HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.torrent It's not that big of a deal, but it is a little annoying. Thank you. ~Ron
  14. Oh sorry Humtpy, I guess I didn't understand what you were saying. Really WinXP doesn't back up eevrything in registry? Aww that's a shame. What about System Mechanic? It backed it up for me, so I don't know lol. Cool Erunt is freeware and I'm taking your word for it that it fully backs up registry. Thank you Andavari. I'll add it to the tutorial. Tarun, why do you want this thread locked? As you can see we're making progress on how to make it better. Do you not like me? ~Ron
  15. Humpty, That is the point. If something messes up, then the registry back up will restore it to the point before this tutorial. Let's say the person editting the registry screws up on adding one of the D_WORD registry entries and puts it into the wrong place and somehow stops them from connecting to the internet or something. So now they can use their registry back up to get back to that original state. If you would like, I could just add some freeware software links to help people who want imaging/cloning software. Thanks for bringing it up though. Lordoftheweb, what's wro
