Question: The Demand for GPU's 2016-2017

Hey guy's this post is to get information and thoughts about the current GPU market

#1 I find it highly ridiculous the new GPU's released are so hard to get in retail it's making me wonder why it's so hard ?
A: Are Vendors purposely messing with stock ?
B: Is this newer GPU that worth it to get or is next Generation a better choice TI on up
C: Does anyone with a G-sync monitor feels there wouldn't be any difference from your last years flavor 970,980 980ti

#2 How much are you willing to pay and what brand you prefer ?

#3 Last question do you feel Nvidia will stop improving Maxwell based on Pascal being a main focus ?

Thoughts and sorry for the massive Novel

Preferred Solution: The Demand for GPU's 2016-2017

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:I dont think so demand for aftermarket stuff is massive founders edition cards are pretty easy to get though , and apart from poor cooling are actually tending to clock higher (NVidia cherry picked for founders)??
B:For me with a 980TI no , im not pay700 quid for 25% increase in fps when its mostly over 100 already waiting for TI
C:I have the same monitor as you , but i dont understand what your asking?

EVGA and ill see how the aftermarket ti's price after launch

Just threw this article together, I want all the brain's in this forum to chip in and if there is anything missing from this article (at all!) let me know ASAP, in this thread.

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

My Windows Office 2016 subscription expires this month.
I need to renew but I was wondering when 2017 is going to be released.
I searched online but I found a lot of stuff on 2016, but nothing for 2017.
It probably won't be released this month but I thought I would check, because I don't want to buy it this week and have a new version come out next week.

I don't think MSFT does this for Office like they do for Windows 10, but if we purchase an Office product and there are changes during the year, do they issue updates? I don't recall any.
If they issue 2017 after I buy the 2016 version does it get updated when they release the new version? I don't think they do, but I thought I would ask.

Many thanks!

Answer:Windows Office 2016/2017

Office is not updated to a new version every year - for Windows was 2010, then 2013 then 2016.

If you get a subscription now you will get 2016 (plus latest updates) and it will automatically update to latest version whenever it is released (assuming your subscription is still valid).

Again, not sure why Lenovo is so hard headed? Resuing to listen to what the MAJORITY of people want. * No OLED displays? How long do we have to wait for this? 2020? * SD Mini slot in the back? Very inconvient. No one is going to use it. (regular SD card on the side works better).* CTRL and FN button still in the wrong location. Why again do we have to fix it in bios when Lenovo can easily make it right? No SD card on my 2015 is the most annoying thing ever. Yes I have a stupid USB SD reader but c'mon. What's the point of thin and light if we have to carry a bunch of add-ons. Especially when the SD card slot doesn't even take up any space. Stupid move. Lenovo is losing sales and customers and it's due to them being out of touch with consumers.   

Answer:The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop. When will the 2017 ...

The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop for Lenovo? I doubt that. I think it sells very well for Lenovo. You say the majority of people want an SD card reader? Many mobile systems don´t have one anymore, and they still sell. This is a niche requirement, and Lenovo, who is a company with a wide lineup, has other models to fullfill that need. Aka the ThinkPad T460s, which is dimension and weight wise almost exactly the same as your X1 Carbon 2015, but with an SD Card reader, Ethernet, upgradeable RAM etc.

Source: Firefox Roadmap for 2016/2017 - gHacks Tech News

Mozilla updated the official Firefox roadmap entry on the organization's Wiki website recently, highlighting major plans for the browser in 2016/2017.

The information highlight some of the features that Mozilla has in store for the next four stable versions of the Firefox browser (Firefox 48 to 51).

The organization lists three main areas of improvement: foundation, customization and context graph.

Foundation refers to improving the browser's responsiveness, reliability and polish. Customization primarily to extending the Web Extension API, and Context Graph to a new recommendation engine Mozilla plans to deliver.

It needs to be noted that the roadmap does not highlight all new features or improvements of the next four or so Firefox releases. Instead, it highlights Mozilla's focus and strategy for those next releases of the web browser.

Firefox Roadmap for 2016/2017
Features that were delayed several times, multi-process Firefox and add-on signing, will find their way into the stable version of Firefox.

Discovery and recommendations seem to be a strong focus going forward.

Chronological Firefox roadmap
The following information lists Firefox versions and the new features Mozilla plans to integrate in them. Target milestones may change however so think of this as the earliest possible version shipping with the feature:

Being on the fast ring for Windows 10 updates, I was frustrated that Quicken 2017 and TurboTax 2016 would not work due to a net.framework.4.6.1 error preventing them from running or installing on version 15002. Windows had updated the net. framework to 4.7 and Quicken and Turbo Tax would not recognize it. With the newest 15007 version AND these instructions from the Microsoft web site:

I got them to work. NOTE: you HAVE to change permissions for FULL and CLIENT before you can modify the two version settings by doing this:
1. Using the registry editor go to the Client folder, right click and select permissions. Click on the advanced button. At the top, click on the OWNER change link. In the BOX, put in your user name that is all in caps under the users selection from the previous little window.
2. Once changed, click on the Users (YOURNAME/Users) principal in the box below. Click on Edit. Click on full control box to check it and click on OK and then click on APPLY. It should go through without errors.
3. Do the same thing for the FULL folder.
4. Now you can do the two changes that Microsoft has written up in the problem part of the web page above. Right click on version and click on modify. Change the number from 7 to 6 in the value box and click OK.

Microsoft confirms no more Windows 10 feature updates in 2016; two coming in 2017

Microsoft published a TechNet blog post on Tuesday regarding what's new in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the article, the company confirmed that it has two feature updates planned for 2017, but no more for this year.

Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.

The news is right in line with current rumors. Tuesday's Anniversary Update would be the one feature update for this year, and Redstone 2 - the codename for the next major Windows 10 update - isn't slated to arrive until April 2017. Redstone 3 is rumored as well, but without any release timing, so with today's news, it's presumably late 2017.

It's also in line with what Microsoft has already said. Back in May, the firm said that it would be pushing two feature updates for Windows 10 every year.

The obvious question that you're probably asking is, if Microsoft said that it would release two updates per year, why would the company only release one this year? Well, when Microsoft says the word 'year', it could mean a calendar year, or it could mean a fiscal year, which would be over at the end of June. With that in mind, the firm has released two major updates for Windows 10 every year, and is on pace to do so, even with Redstone 2 coming in April.

I purchased an active stylus and after being unable to get it to work was told by tech support that the stylus is not supported with the new 13inch Spectre? Are the advertising pages on shop.hp.com incorrect or is there a stylus which works with the new Spectre?

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Answer:Avast IS 2016 / Panda IS 2016 / Bitdefender IS 2016

What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.

Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Answer:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!
Thanks

I've just got a new desktop (Jan 2016) with windows 10 pre-loaded and I installed office 2010 - jump lists didn't work - so I thought I'll uninstall and install office 2016 64bit - jump lists still don't work arrggggg!

But they work for IE and notepad and file explorer but not for firefox or photoshop elements.

I've tried deleting the files from:

Hi there!

Well, after reseting the PC to factory settings and reinstalled my drivers, I'm encountering a nasty problem... I?m just unable to install office 2016 in Windows 10, just when it's about to finish, stops, reverts all and says there was an error installing the suite...

I could install this in build 1511, no problems, but here this happens... I tried compatibility modes, using the office cleaning tool, but no avail, I even have all the VC runtimes installed... I'm tryinto install 64 bit version.

Please guys, any advice on this? I really need office for doing my job!

Thanks in advance

Try installing 32bit option - you really do not need 64bit unless doing some mega powerful stuff.

I have a new pc. Dell Inspiron 3650
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.41 GHz
16.0 GB (RAM)
64-Bit Op. Sys. x64 based processor
I installed the office pro plus 2016 with a key from seller.
It installed fine on 12 7 16 then today 12 8 16 none of the office programs will open.
The home and Student 2016 also does the same thing. I installed the pro and the home and student does the same thing.
The pc came with Win10 home I purchased from Dell Win10 pro. I called Dell support and they helped me to install pro from the usb.
One thing I never activated the home and student before downloading the purchased office pro. the office pro key worked so I didn't think I needed it.
After all the trouble with the pro I uninstalled pro and tried to use the home and student. the product key worked on it also. but the same thing happens
I get the error box
Microsoft Word has stopped working
windows is checking for a solution to the problem
then it changes to
Microsoft Word has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
needless to say I have heard nothing.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions?
Thank you.

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender
So my question is to know if it is a good idea to replace BD by KIS on my config ?

I was wondering if any one had advice on which laptop offered the best overall performance so someone who is a casual gamer but also wants to use the laptop for practical things like Word/Excel, streaming movies, and listening to music. I've a budget of £1000.
Narrowed it down to the new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop (2016 model) and the hp HP 15-ax003na Gaming laptop (2016 model).
Not a serious pro gamer but I do enjoy playing Total War games etc. on my laptop with OK graphics.
I can't seem to find any information on the new Dell as it always refers to the 2015 model.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

A recent cumulative update for Exchange 2016 was intended to add support for Windows Server 2016. But, after numerous reported issues, Microsoft has acknowledged a problem exists.

According to the release notes?

If you attempt to run Microsoft Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016, you will experience errors in the IIS host process W3WP.exe. There is no workaround at this time. You should postpone deployment of Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016 until a supported fix is available.

Once again, Microsoft?s testing of its own patches seems to have taken a backseat to accelerated release deadlines.

Question: Install on Demand

I have noticed quite a few referances to "uncheck" install on demand in IE. I have unchecked it through tools-options-advanced. Would someone take the time to tell what this feature does and what will I lose by unchecking it? FYI for some reason I could not un-install AdWare ver. 5.71 so I just installed 5.8 over it and all seems well. Thank you very much for all the help in the past. This is just a GREAT site.
 

Answer:Install on Demand

#2) There could be a number of reasons you were not able to un-install the app. If it's working now I wouldn't worry about it.

#1) You will sometimes browse a Web-site whose pages have features unusable on your system. Install on demand tells the browser to automatically attempt to download and install the software need in order to use these features. If it is unchecked your system should prompt you whenever it encounters one of these situations. You may then authorize or refuse the d/l/install - but at least you will know what is going on and why. You really don't lose anything except convenience by un-checking the option,,, and you keep better control of your system.

btw- If you go back to where you un-checked the option... click the question-mark at the top of the box... then single-click directly on ANY option you will get a brief description of the option.

How can I add a screensaver shortcut to the quick-launch bar? I always have the screensaver disabled on my PC, and I usually turn off the LCD if I'm not going to be using the PC while it's working (like encoding video, for example). But there are times when I'd like to be able to have a screensaver on demand, one click and it's running. I'd like to stay away from any 3rd party screen savers if possible; if I could just launch the generic Windows XP screen saver with a single click from the quick-launch bar, that would be fan-freekin'-tastic!

Thanks!

Just a point that may interest some users.

For a long time I have used ZA Free FW, until for some reason it started to give trouble logging events.
My loading from start-up and general responses have been poor, but I have put up with them. I often got the reply that I have too many add-ons and auxiliary programs and that is why my loading is poor. I understand the theory, but never believed it was causing my slow responses.

Queries to the ZA Forum were a waste of time, it was always my fault or my crappy old PC that did not suit their beloved FW.

I finally dumped ZA and installed PrivateFirewall. Amazingly, the loading from start is now infinitely better and subsequent responses no problem. The situation is so consistent that it cannot be imagination.

My conclusion ? ZA must impose a much heavier demand on PC resources than PrivateFirewall does.
The difference in performance is so staggering that it is hard to believe, but I am now thoroughly pleased.

Has anybody any comments on the apparent vast improvement made by this change in FW ?

If you are talking about a malware scanner, then MalwareBytes and Super AntiSpyware are the two best. If you are talking about Anti Virus, there are a lot of good ones. Norton is fine as are most other "name brands". Personally, I use Kaspersky on all systems as an AV solution with MalwareBytes for occasional supplementary scans for malware.

I'm currently doing my general degree, bachelor of arts, in political science at a university which I only took because I wanted to learn something different and to pretty much say that I have a degree. However, I'm a computer a nerd and was always interested in networking and security. I want to take a short cert program for network security after I get my degree, but times' changing and would like to know what the demand is in this industry sector. What is the average pay? and how easy is it to get a job?

I'm interested specifically in forensics IT and network security.

Any information and help is appreciated. Thanks
 

Answer:Demand in IT Industry

i would say, even with your non i.t. related degree, you are probably going to be looking at starting at the bottom of the ladder... particularly when it comes to security/forensics as these are areas that require a very good understanding of most of the areas within i.t. which can only really be gained through years of experience.

also a cert imo is something that furnishes years of experiences. put it this way - would you employ a 22/23 year old fresh out of uni with no experience who had crammed on some books over a couple of months and somehow blagged an mcse to design your new multi million pound network for you? no, i didnt think so!

i dont mean to sound harsh, but if you think you can take a short cert program and then walk into a forensics/security job then i think you are sadly mistaken.

what skill/experience do you actually have other than being 'a geek' who is 'interested' in networking and security - if you tell us this we may be able to give a more accurate idea of where you should be pitching yourself.

I'm currently using a single pc for my online banking and other $$$ transaction needs... I only have Audio and Video Drivers, Windows 7 Operating System, EMET, NIS 2012 along with KeyScrambler Premium loaded on system... I also utilize On Demand Software (CCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Hitman Pro and Bootable NPE), but do not have them resident on my PC... I only run On Demand Software as portable, or in the case of of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware I load then Uninstall after Scan...

I've generally approached the issue with the assumption that 'Less is Best' which provides efficiency with NIS Scanning and other chores the PC performs... I've also had situations with other infected PC's which disable Resident Security Software and make it difficult to uninstall and re-install... I've had 'luck' loading scanning security software (provided the USB/DVD drives haven't been disabled) to fix issues... If not, a Clean System Image is a 'Miracle Drug'....

Well, a lot of verbage to ask a simple question of the forum... is it your opinion that On Demand Security Software is better as Resident or Non-Resident ??? or, possibly both depending on situation ??? Sorry for lengthy introduction... and thanks, in advance, for this forums thoughtful insights.... !!
 

Answer:On Demand Resident or Not ?

I don't think you need to spare computer resources if the PC is only used for banking. And it seems that Windows needs an active antivirus according to most people. The banking PC is probably connected to the same network as other PCs in your house so a worm might spread to it in a worse case scenario. Or why not install a Linux distribution on this banking PC?

Hello , I am talking here about the scans you can perform by clicking "Perform full system scan".I mean , in my opinion , there is no interest scanning this way , because you have a real time scanner that analyses every single file that is being read.I mean that if there are any malicious activities in background or not , your real time scanner should intercept it.However , I know we can discover infected files after a manual full scan.My thoughts :1-If we do have infected files after a manual full scan (not detected by real time scanner) , it can either be a remnant (registry key/single file) of a previous eradicated malware OR a non-active threat (the file itself is infected but is not doing any harm to the PC , ex:Random infected EXE).2-But in every case those files are UNACTIVE , meaning that they're not running.(Because your real time scanner would be showing up something if they ware active). What are your opinions ?

Answer:"On demand" Scans , why ?

A real-time scanner generally is less thorough than a full system scan in its analysis of files and registry entries. Most realtime scanners will skip files which are unlikely to carry an infection (like files ending in .txt for example) and don't perform the full battery of analyses that the scanner engine is capable of.

In a sense, realtime scanning can be thought of as a security guard whereas a full system scan would be a SWAT team.

I downloaded 4oD two days ago, since then I have experienced multiple problems. 1 can't do system restore. 2 unable to receive any messages via outlook express, error message ox8000cccof appears after a long delay 3 slow download speed on internet explorer. I found a solution on the web to download KCLEAN and run that - this removed the file khost but has resolved the other problems.
I run Windows XP with service pack 3 installed, I also use Norton 360 as my antivirus software.
Please help.
Thanks

Hi everyone,

I was wondering, which out of Ad-aware 2007 and Spybot S&D is best for on-demand scanning.

Thanks!

Answer:Spybot Or Ad-aware As On-demand

Spybot S&D.Although it has a new look, Ad-aware 2007 does not seem to offer much in major improvements with its scanning.mvps.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D due to poor testing results and no longer recommending Ad-Aware due to the ever increasing amount of problems. See here. (scroll down to the note)

I was a bit careless in the recent past and got infected numerous times with numerous things. The infected hard drive was the final straw, so I upgraded my PC. I am now running Vista 64 on a quad-core with 8GB RAM (not bragging, just letting folks know that I have a lot of available resources).

My recent experiences have left me believing that no single product can catch everything. So I want to run AntiVir as a real-time AV, but would also like to have 1 or 2 on-demand scanners to make for a layered defense - particularly when I'm playing with software of dubious origin.

But which on-demand scanners are the ones to chose? I can only find 2 that are clearly on-demand and clearly don't have real-time components that are forced on. These 2 are BitDefender and McAfee Command-Line Scanner.
Are there any other on-demand AV scanners which people can recommend?
Am I making assumptions about other AV scanners? That is, is it possible to install 2 real-time scanners but disable the real-time engine on 1 of them, but leaving it's on-demand capabilities around? (This sounds unlikely, but I have to ask.)

Thanks in advance.

MWClick to expand...

no, it's a very bad idea I would say
BD free is very likely to conflict with your current AV
furthermore, BD free doesn't have the latest signatures compared to BD's paid products. BD free will install some drivers and files which will cause conflicts
I would suggest you to use emsisoft emergency kit and hitmanpro because these 2 also have BD signatures, at least more updated than BD free. zemana free portable may also use BD signatures but it's not confirmed. All these 3 have significant faster scanning speed than BD. with the same amount of time, you can finish the scan of these 3 compared to 1 scan from BD
BD free has cloud feature but I found it's very bad and doesn't work with on-demand scanning, only on execution

After some research I finally figured out what a VOD was. At least I think I do. I wanted to set up a VOD that can be accessed via the web and the mobile platforms as well. I know that this is easier said then done, but what would I have to do to create a platform that is similar to netflix or youtube? (wouldn't Netflix be considered a VOD?)

QUESTION:is there a program available anywhere which i could install on my computer (?????)which i could store in the 'open with' file or 'send to ' file(????)(possible?)
to scan occasional things which i may encounter (occasional downloads or e mails).for viruses,worms,etc.

i am verynew with 'all things computer"..But i understnd that installing full antivirus programs,sometimes causes problems in computer workings...

i have a used Compaq Presario (3 years old)with windows 98,which was installed by my local computer shop.

.I had previously Windows ME on the same computer,but i found that since i was so new to computers,i caused the thing to 'seize up' OFTEN..especially when i downloaded new programs or tried to have more memory installed..,or tried almost any new(to me) application.

if you need any more information on my OS,to answer my question above,i have' belarc advisor ' onboard..even if i do not know what everything in the analysis means,at least i can refer to it if need be

.summary of questions-
#1. ls there anantivirus program available anywhere which can be used for 'as required' applications????

#2..can i save it in 'send to' or 'open with'?

#3.how?
 

Answer:software available for 'scan on demand'?

Most Virus checkers do what you want.
I and many people recommend a free (at the moment) one called AVG. It uses very little resources, scan incoming Mail, files read etc. You can get it to scan all downloaded files and you can right click on a file/folder and get it to scan it.

Yeah Beta is right you can watch after a couple of seconds of downloading but won't have the forward on ability yet as it will still be downloading. it should normally promt you when your program is ok to watch and when it has been fully downloaded.
I think its great to be honest, there's some really good series in the library section of it.

Answer:sky go, on demand football service

I believe that as long a you have a paid subscription for sports the on-demand service is included free. I do know that matches are only available for between 2 and 14 days so perhaps this is why you cannot find them because they have expired.
I suppose that you have set it up - see here.
