  1. One of the greatest pieces of software in existence. Was super happy to see the update on MajorGeeks!
  2. --- Alex Jones is rude- he disrespects (on a personal level at times, too) a lot of people who have taken the time to interview him or debate him. --- He does not know how to politely debate or politely disagree (I don't expect people to be all *angelic* with their discussion, but basic, civil manners is not much to ask for). --- He is not fair in his back-and-forths with people. He steamrolls people with his rants, accusations, rallying cries (stuff he's totally allowed to say, but not when someone else wants to get a point across). --- He often throws out unbacked numbers or out-of-conte
  3. A software update cannot modify silicon. Updating the "processor microcode" is akin to firmware updating. So it only changes the upgradeable ROM on (or the chips associated with) the processor (or a piece of the processor that's available to overwriting- by design). I don't know much about the process, but perhaps the updates are digitally signed by the manufactures (or, by Intel/AMD themselves) which would prevent a fraudulent/malicious microcode installation. Digital signing is virtually impossible to spoof and would require code-espionage and stealthy implementations to avoid detecti
  4. It's only CCleaner. (the leaner CCleaner) (which fits the way I actually pronounce the product in my mind- "CC leaner")
  5. You win "strangest thing I've seen today." How... unsettling.
  6. Oh, if it's just a single registry key entry then that's super viable and would be a good consideration. (pardon my ignorance)
  7. As a college student, I dropped $400 (special student pricing) and got the following (CS6) Adobe products right before school: (yes, some of these are the "Adobe freebies") *After Effects *Audition Bridge *Encore ExtendScript Extension Manager *Flash Professional *Illustrator Media Encoder *Photoshop Prelude *Premiere Pro Speed Grade (* = I actually use this program regularly for school and personal enjoyment/jobs) ----- Now, if I was going off of their Creative Cloud subscription plan @ $20/mo (for students), I'd spend more than $400 in less than 2 years. Since I nabbed P
  8. Heck yes, that'd be a fantastic addition. ----- ----- @ Hazelnut First of all, hi! I've always appreciated your input on the forums across all these years! -No, I don't have a business license. I'm presently out of the professional computer repair game (gettin' a degree!) ----- ----- I get where you're coming from. But this thinking (hesitation, as to protect users from themselves) has poisoned/delayed/stalled the introduction of software features throughout history. Again, I know why you suggest such a thing (and I'm not saying it's bad) but anyone digging around their registry
  9. My suggestion: the ability to search the Registry Cleaner "found issues". There are several occasions where I'm considering looking to remove registry keys associated with certain programs. So, instead of me looking through a large list of keys---- CCleaner would be incredibly more useful to me if it would allow me to search the results of the Registry Cleaner scan. For example: I presently have CCleaner offering to "clean" a program that doesn't exist on my computer (whether due to an bad uninstall or upgrade, I don't know.) I know that removing a few registry keys will addres
  10. Your score: 65 "News Skimmer"
  11. Congrats on finishing the test. Your score: 36 Leave the IT department immediately in case you're contagious. Go to Men's Wearhouse. Buy a suit and apply for a job in marketing. ...awww
  12. Sweet, thanks for the cool links! Awesome!!!
  13. Not to be a downer (I only read the first two posts on this topic, so I don't know what's been said throughout the post). But Spybot Search & Destroy and Spyware Blaster are relatively incompatible with each other. Not saying that they are bad programs, I LOVE them both, but I work in a computer service/DELL representative shop and throughout our first year of using the two programs together there were odd problems when cleaning and using other programs on the computers. -and their bad-stuff blocking conflicted on occasion, a VERY RARE occurrence- The problem could possibly b
  14. Anybody know who to switch from the dell wireless utility to the windows wireless utility (vista). We try to connect to a router using the dell wireless utility, but it only lets us view or monitor the available connections. (I work at a computer tech store, and this is driving me nuts! I really dislike Vista at this stage it's in) So we hypothisize that if we were able to view the available connections via the windows wireless utility, we woll be able to connect. [it seems one out of every 5 Vista systems that come to us for support have thi sproblem!]
  15. Not being picky or anything, but above Andavari said "without any trees on the planet there wouldn't be any cows let alone people because trees produce the greater majority of the oxygen we must breathe." Plankton give us more oxygen than trees do, but indeed we do need trees for a healthy planet. (I'm no tree-hugger or an extreamist-environmentalist, but we have to take care of our planet. And if the cows already dead, might as well use the skin for something! ) -I'm totally not trying to be smarter than Andavari, because I know I'm not- just a little tidbit of info- (I respect you hea
