Do you trust WOT again? - 2017

Question: Do you trust WOT again? - 2017

Here is a Best Answer from a google product forum:

"When a Chrome extension is removed from the store, the developer of that extension can then submit a new version that doesn't violate the Chrome web store terms. If that new version is ready, they can submit it on his store dashboard page. However, because they violate the Chrome web store program. This extension will also get a manual review by a Google employee, to check if they meet Chrome web store guideline (that takes 48 hours). If OK, then you see the Chrome extension back in the store.

So the Wot Chrome extension is now safe."

Preferred Solution: Do you trust WOT again? - 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.)

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?

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?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

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.
FACEBOOK
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

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
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.

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​

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.

But when I use LDN by itself it goes through. And after the setup is done the whole FQDN is displayed if I try to verify I get the same message about RPC. Thank you for the help.

Question: WOT (Web of Trust)

I originally ended up here in Techguy looking for info concerning an article I read, and in reading various threads concerning that and other threads that piqued my interest, I noticed that WOT is rarely mentioned here.

Is WOT not as recommended as other security programs? Or is it just not as widely known? I would think it would be a top program to mention in order to prevent us from accessing the bad sites most likely to cause us harm. And since I rarely see it mentioned here, I'm now questioning its integrity, lol.

For anyone who hasn't heard of this browser extension, WOT (Web of Trust) keeps track of websites and lets you know which one are trustworthy with a colour-coded system.

It bases the "trust system" on user experience who then rate the sites using the rating system built in the program. The ratings are from millions of users and trusted third-party sources.



You then know which sites are safe due to the "reputation icons" which are the coloured circles beside each website. They show up for search engine hits, social media platforms, online email, shortened URLs, and many popular sites.

So what are your views of this extenion? Is is not quite on the up-and-up or just very underated?

Question: Don't trust others

About 2 weeks ago, i formatted my computer. After finally getting what I wanted back up, my computer was faster than ever. I left, only to come back to my much older(about 20 years older) cousin on my computer. I let her check her e-mail and whatnot. Soon she was doing things randomly to pass time.I thought, "Why is she waiting? My computer isn't that slow!" When I got on the computer, it was freezing nearly constantly, and I spent a good 4 hours attempting to fix it. Now, I had to delete nearly 2 gigs of programs just to get it salvaged again. Now she is blaming it on my games. Could someone diagnose this please?

Long story short, I was using eTrust EZ Anti-virus for a long time, and it worked very well. but it did not detect a kakworm that Symantec's site did detect.

So I took the plunge and installed NAV2002 last night and scanned my system with it. It found 2 kakworm files. So I downloaded the removal tool for it. BUT... that tool said there is no kakworm on my system.

So who can I trust? The eTrust AV is very good, and never let me down (I got infected with klez this week due to my own ignorance). And eTrust never detected a kakworm, but NAV did, but their removal tool says it isn't there.

Well, in November of 2003 I built what was then the ultimate gaming machine, it has worked wonderfully except for burning up a power supply once. But about a month and a half ago it started giving me an audio notification of an error (the MB says specific phrases according to what is wrong). Now since I have surround sound with a subwoofer I'm not sure I understood what the voice said, but it seemed like it said "System failed VGA test" I could just simply turn the machine off and back on and it would usually go through without doing it again. VGA failure would mean a problem with my graphics card of course, BUT, my question is if the CPU was burning up or let's just say reaching the end of its days, could it cause strange things like that to happen? BECAUSE, now when I turn the machine on I get nothing on the monitor, and within a few seconds it begins to repeat the phrase "System failed CPU test" I'm positive that is what the MB is saying this time because I've had numerous people listen, turned down the bass on speakers and all, I just hope that I misunderstood her voice the first few times it happened.

Both displays on each computer use small icons and limited text to maximize the viewing screen. Tried to move the larger WOT icon from the 2nd row to the same row as File/Edit/View, but cannot. Thought it was a Toolbars Locked issue but isn't.

Recently I have had assistance from the Tetonbob, and on completion have installed WOT as he advised.

As he is very busy I dont want to bother him about something very small, so here I am.

WOT has installed a new toolbar across the top of the screen for just its one icon, If this continues I will have all toolbars and no viewing area!

Is anybody able to give a master class on organising toolbars please?

I have tried but with no luck.

I think I am running IE7 on windows XP SP3.

I posted here as on searching TSF TheFANforRPM looks to have had the same problem - Only no one has helped him in 7 months, which has not been my experience with TSF so far , perhaps it is something that cannot be solved? Perhaps I just need to buy a much bigger monitor?

Regards PC Numpty

Recently, for about a few weeks now when I go online with my Mozilla browser a window pops up claiming to be from Microsoft. In the upper corner it says Microsoft Internet Security. Then warns that my browser is in high risk for infection unless I give permission to install Online Protection Tool by Microsoft Windows. Has anyone seen this before? Is this legitimate software from Windows? I tried asking the people at windows directly and I am still waiting a week later for a reply. Help! if you can, greatly appreciated jhonni107(Moderator edit: Email address removed to prevent spambot harvesting and for privacy protection. Post moved to more appropriate forum. jgw)

Answer:To Trust or Not to Trust

Read this link - Online Protection Tool, fake pop-up alert that looks like a Windows warning:http://deletemalware.blogspot.com/2010/03/...ction-tool.htmlYou could try to resolve the problem with Malwarebytes - if the problem persists,report back and you can get help from the more experienced members of this Forum.

Sorry this is going to be a long one.

OK here is the scenario. To access my mail I log into my ISP and click on a link which is placed on my home page. So this morning - like any other day - I did just that.
Wham!! Big warning from my antivirus software (Kaspersky). Telling me that the file I was trying to open contained a trojan. Remember all I have done so far is click on the link - I have not yet even go to the screen containing my mail. Clicking on deny access I am informed that if I think that there is something wrong I should contact the ISP.
I made a note of the URL given by Kaspersky and sure enough it was the URL for my ISP's mail server. Ok I thought they have a problem (Note I say they not me). I rang them up and was politely told that their mail serve does not have a virus. So I asked the rep to link to my pc so he could see for himself what my antivirus was telling me. Oh - I also informed him at this point that I was running Windows 7 with Kaspersky as my antivirus.
He agreed - took a look at the message and agreed it did look as if it was on their server however it was likely to be an email I was trying to open. (Remember what I said earlier - I havent got that far yet!!).
Anyway he told me he would ask one of the technicians to contact me. However he did tlell me that there would be little they could do for me as I was not running the antivirus software provided by them (more on this later).

Add-on companies are selling the browsing history of millions of users to third-parties according to a report that aired on German national TV.

The data was collected by companies that produce browser extensions for various popular browsers such as Chrome and Firefox.

Here are my 2 questions

1st) I bought a computer directly from the HP company and on the box It says the RAM is 256mb pc2700. Then I used PC-Doctor ( Runs tests to see if parts of computer are working right and gives system info ). Anyways it says the RAM is 256mb pc 3200. The question I have is does it matter what kind of RAM I buy for the computer or does it have to be PC2700 or PC3200 specifically? If it needs to be the specific type should I trust what the box says ( the hp website too ) or what the PC-Doctor says?

2nd) I have 2 memory slots with 2gb available memory ( 1 slot has 256 and the other has none ) so I can take out the first slots 256 and then place a 1gb RAM in both of the 2 spots right? ( just making sure so I dont mess nothing up )

If you know this stuff plz help and if not thanks for reading the thread.
 

Answer:Who/what can i trust more?

1 )
None. Check on the memory stick itself.
Download sisandra from SiSoftware and do a memory bandwith test. If the numbers are in the 2000's it's probably pc2700, if it's high 3000, low 4000, it's pc3200.

Dell might have put a 3200 because thats what they had in stock. If so, cool for you.
PC-Doctor might get some wrong informations. A hardware's bios might be wrong or simply PC-Doctor can't find a perfect match for the product and theres some sort of deductive code that matches it with the closest match it has in database. Which would be the pc3200 it's displaying.

You can never be 100% sure. I had a celeron processor that showed up as a p2. I had a video card with an r480 gpu core, but it showed up as r423.

You have to check on the piece of hardware itself.
Benchtests can also give you an idea .. but you can't be 100% sure with them.

2) Yes.

Question: who to trust?

Have a PC here that needs a memory upgrade, I have downloaded Everest Free Edition onto the machine and it is reporting that the PC takes DDRSD RAM PC2700...but Crucial is tellin' me it's DDR PC2700 ..not a whole lotta difference I know...but I don't want to make any stupid mistakes here before forking out on non compatible RAM.

How can I be absoultely certain about this before purchase...or...do I just trust Everest?

Thanks
Emms
 

Answer:who to trust?

All memory is SDRAM, just like all cars are vehicles.

SDRAM = Syncronous Dynamic Random Access Memory

Your computer takes DDR SDRAM, which means you want Double Data Rate SDRAM. So the difference is just in the label, much in the same way I refer to my 1994 Nissan as either "my car", or "my Pathfinder".

Makes sense?

Answer:Can we trust the Web of Trust (WOT)?

It's up to you whether or not you uninstall it, it would not be removed/disabled automatically from your system. You can be aware that
    Your Internet Protocol Address;
    Your geographic location (e.g., France, Canada, etc.);
    The type of device, operating system and browsers you use;
    Date and time stamp;
    Browsing usage, including visited web pages, clickstream data or web address accessed;
    Browser identifier and user ID;
may have been sold, and so may any of these in the future. This could be valuable information for targeting attacks against your machine, but there's nothing you can do about that now apart from uninstall the plug in.
 
Personally I never liked the plug in as it was reputation based blocking rather than fact based. Though others seemed to consider it valuable.
 
You may consider installing things like AdBlockPlus, NoScript, Ghostery, Disconnect and Privacy Badger to increase your browser security rather.

Question: who to trust

Hey everyone,
I have been using Ccleaner for about six months and until now thought it was great. Yesterday i came across Registry Booster. Well immediately after running Ccleaner Registry Booster says it found 350 registry problems.
Now do i trust that Ccleaner did it's job or do i get rid of it and trust Registry Booster. Any comments on either program welcome.
Thanks,
Dan

PS I did not remove the entries that Registry Booster found. I am very apprehensive about messing to much with the registry.
 

Answer:who to trust

It seems OK. I use CCleaner in conjunction with RegScrubXP. I looked around on Google for reviews and Registry Booster has good reviews all around. Also, it is a pay program so unless you decide to buy it, I'd stick to CCleaner because you'll have to get back to using CCleaner anyways.

Has anyone tried Web of Trust? It's a rating system for websites that's on Mozilla's recommended list. Works with IE too.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3456

Free Internet Security | WOT Web of Trust

Answer:Web of Trust add-on

Using it now - since it is end user based (primarily) you have to take a lot of what users rate with a grain of salt. For example, many user have rated BroSoft, a downloader hoster for app developers, as a bad site because of a particular problem they may have had with *one* program - not understanding that this site only hosts the download for the app developer and has nothing else to do with the development of the app that they used.

For more accurate results I'd go with FinJan and SiteHound as well (and possibly RobotGenius).

Here is a Best Answer from a google product forum:

"When a Chrome extension is removed from the store, the developer of that extension can then submit a new version that doesn't violate the Chrome web store terms. If that new version is ready, they can submit it on his store dashboard page. However, because they violate the Chrome web store program. This extension will also get a manual review by a Google employee, to check if they meet Chrome web store guideline (that takes 48 hours). If OK, then you see the Chrome extension back in the store.

So the Wot Chrome extension is now safe."

Answer:WOT ( web of trust)

Hi

What Windows version are all the PCs and especially the one thats not displaying the feature as it should?

What Browsers are you using on these PCs and is the same one using the addon and displaying correctly on some and not on the one in question?

Are all PCs upto date with Windows and updates for browsers if 3rd party is used?
Do they all have the same security apps and if not list each PC with what Windows version, browser and security apps they have and highlight the none compliant one?

Troubleshooting is never easy and worst still remotely via the web so many questions and answers are needed to find a commonality then the non conformist part that could be the issue.

Here's my problem - a while ago I started getting tabs opening redirecting to 'terpoy.com.', which quickly became annoying.  This is an adware problem (?)
 
I run a paid AVG subscription on my computer, which didn't pick anything up.  I downloaded and tried a few free spyware/virus detection packages, which didn't find anything either.
 
I then downloaded Spyhunter4 which then found about 395 threats from both MySearchDial toolbar and Speedial Search!
 
I tried looking on the Control Panel to uninstall these toolbars, but I can't seem to find them!
 
Is Spyhunter legit?  is it really possible for a lesser known spyware package to find nearly 400 threats that all the others can't, and how do I get rid of this f****** adware?

Answer:who can I trust to fix my computer

The best way is by personal recommendation. If you have any particularly sensitive files, I'd save them to an external hard drive, then delete them from the PC. From then on, only save sensitive documents to the external drive. Then, if it goes wrong in the future, not only is the technician unable to see anything you don't want him to, but also your documents are safe.

I am worried about my IP address being viewed by hackers.

Thanks,

changintimes
 

Answer:Should I trust this site?

In the end, only you can decide.

I assume this is the part of the Registration Agreement that concerns you;

"The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of Phrasebase forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempts that lead to the data being compromised."

To me this wording looks fairly standard. It doesn't even include the proviso that they will pass info to any authorised law enforcement agency that demands it, possibly because that can be implied (or it might be on the page I didn't read!). I'm no expert on these documents though, because I don't register at that many sites, I tend to 'lurk'!.

I understand that the bad guys have tools that can collect the IP's of active computers from our browsers without having to break into databases to get them. Someone with more technical knowledge may be able to shed more light on this point.

The good news is that Phrasebase are using Apache/Unix, not MS, servers, so that improves their chances of avoiding getting hacked.

Have any of the Forum members purchased products manufactured/marketed by Trust International? click hereIf you have I would appreciate your comments - good or bad. I have searched the web but have found very little in the way of reviews of Trust products.Thanks in advance

Answer:Trust International

I`ve used their keyboards and mice and there`s no problem. Their products are stocked by many multiple retailers and these tend to be at the cheaper end of the market in my opinion. Their latest products seem to be designed a lot better.What were you thinking of buying?

Sorry guys, I'm kind of new to VPN and want to know more about it while asking some questions.

I know VPN has tons of benefits when it comes to connecting to internet, but since we're connecting a VPN thru a server, how do i know that server is not keeping track of my stuff? And also, how is my connection encrypted?

Answer:Should I/we trust VPN services?

Well, You need to know that you can really trust the VPN company! Next investigate if they support different types of encryption.

But as with all software you can never get a 100% guarantee. This was reported recently:

To start with, I inherited this PC with 2 SATA drives and 1 IDE drive. Jacked up from the beginning as it naturally boots off the IDE master then has to search out the primary OS partition on SATA 1, but that's not my real problem since it boots ok.
The problem is a 320gb drive on SATA 2, which recently garbled its boot sectors and crashed. It's now been reformatted as a single partition and seems to work ok again ( of course almost everything was lost) but my question is whether there is anything I can do to to protect it from crashing again?
I don't think there's anything physically wrong with it, it always showed in Bios just couldn't be accessed by windows. I edit video and use this as a cache for ginormous raw files which can't be backed up anywhere else.
I feel like I caught a really hot girlfriend who got drunk and started messing around with somebody else, you know? How to restore the trust....

Answer:HDD crashed, can I ever trust it again ?

Hello there, did you wipe the HDD and align it?

Search for CMD and run as administrator...

*If there's a better place for this thread I ask for forgiveness
So we all know the woes of using Windows Phone; Other platforms have all the fun when it comes to games and apps. I thoroughly enjoyed Plants vs Zombies and really wanted to play the sequel. I did an internet search for Plants Vs. Zombies 2 windows phone and found a page that claims you can download the .xap file and install it on your phone, bypassing the windows phone store. Seems essentially similar to the methods for installing applications that are no longer available in the store for whatever reason (such as the awesome MyBucks Starbucks app).
My gut tells me, I probably shouldn't trust some sketchy website offering an application in .xap format that has never even been in the windows store in the first place. Then again, it could be that a dedicated PvZ fan who happens to be a developer, ported the game and made it available in this way to dodge copyright claims. If the later is the case, I'm all for it since the copyright holder hasn't bothered to make the game available. What are your thoughts Windows phone community?

Answer:Should I trust this .xap download?

Nope, nope, nope.
If it never existed for Windows Phone, there's no way some random dude just ported it or whatever. It's possible, but not very likely at all. I bet that site has a bunch of surveys between you and that alleged game.
You're welcome to try, but its only your PC's safety on the line.

I am currently using Outlook WA which is located within the DMZ. My Exchange box is located with my NT4 domain. I am received an authorized login message when trying to authenticate the username and passwords which are members of the NT4 domain.

I believe that I need to create a trust relationship between the NT4 PDC on the domain and the PC on the DMZ which has the OWA client loaded on it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I Have A Dell Inspiron 2650 And I Dont Know What My Bios Password Is And I Tried Everything I Could Find (killcmoss.com,ibios,etc.). So I Called These Guys Who's Website I Found And They Sell Replacement Bios Chips. I Offered To Pay For The Chip And Have Them Tell Me Which Chip It Is And Just Short It On Start Up. The Guy Says There Is No Way To Do Such A Thing And That By Purchasing This Chip I Will In Turn Recieve A New Chip And The Location Of The Chip To Replace.
Now My Question Is Should I Just Go Ahead And Do This, Or Should I Do Soemthing Else? I Am 4 Days Late Of My Deadline And If I Order This Chip It Will Take A Week To Get To Me. What I Dont Understand Is Why Do So Many Others Have Success With Those Cmoss Destroy And Whatnot Programs But I Dont??? And Yes, I Called Dell And They Are About As Helpful As A One Legged Man In A Two Man Soccer Tournament....

Any Ideas????

Question: MS Anti Trust

I read somewhere that Win7 is going to be required to include Firefox and Google Chrome browsers in addition to IE8 as stated by that whole anti trust thing years ago. Does this strike anyone as not "right"?

Let me give an example of the same thing but for let's say a car manafacturer and that would be to tell Chevrolet that they had to include a Ford and a Honda radio in the trunk in case you would prefer to use one of those instead of the one that came with it. Another example would be to tell Intel that one of cores in it's I7 CPU must be an AMD core. Telling Dunkin Donuts that 10% of the sprinkles on their Donuts must be half Krispy Kream and the other half Donut Connections's sprinkles.

I could go on and on but this is government overstepping their boundaries once again.

Answer:MS Anti Trust

I?m not sure that?s the case. These browsers aren?t usually installed on Windows machines. Users have the ability to download them if they want, correct?

Cheers,

I just received a laptop from my school. I teach here. And here happens to be in China, whereby not all that should be legit is necessarily so. Along with my Dell laptop I could see Office 2010 Pro had been installed and, having installed Avast antivirus, it detected and took care of "AutoKMS.exe" A search shows it to be a hack tool in some cases and perfectly legit in other cases. For the time being I have uninstalled the Office 2010 (If it is a legit copy I could always have it reinstalled--I would assume), Anyhow, though the 'exe' has been quarantined by Avast the folder, found in the 'Windows' directory, along with 2 files still exist. One file is 'AutoKMS.ini' and the other is 'AutoKMS.log'.
So is it legit or what? Meanwhile as I wait for a reply here I am upgrading my laptop's OS to Windows 10.
Thanks :-)

Question: Trust 320 spacecam

Hi all,

I obtained an outdated Trust 320 spacecam webcam from my parents, who, in being the great IT bods that they are, have lost the driver disk. No problem I thought, but installing the driver I can find on the net does not provide an active webcem for skype or anything else. Any ideas on how I can get the original software or an alternative for my cam to work in Win XP (SP 3)?

Ok, I put a 500GB Western Digital (Green) HDD into a custom built system, running Windows XP Home Edition (SP3), to replace a dying Western Digital 160GB HDD. Both drives are SATA drives.

When I first got the 500GB drive, I put it in the system and ran Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test tool to test the drive to make sure it was sound. DFT gave the drive a thumbs up. (I ran the advanced test). I transfer the data from the old hard drive to the new one and get everything up and running. Cool.

I go to defragment the new hard drive and the system reboots itself. I try again, it works. Fine. I run a "chkdsk c:" command and it reports finding some errors and wants me to run the "chkdsk c: /f" command. I do so and it wants to schedule it to run at the next system boot. Cool.

I reboot and get a "data read error" and the system doesn't boot. So, I test the hard drive with the Seagate SeaTools HDD test utility and the quick test checks out fine but the extended test finds a failure. I then try the Hitachi DFT and the quick test checks out fine but the advanced test finds a failure. I then try the Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic tool and both the quick and long running tests pass cleanly. I reboot the system and it boots normally and runs the "chkdsk c: /f" command I had scheduled.

Two of the three hard drive diagnostic tools I tried found issues with the drive but the Western Digital tool didn't.

Would you trust the drive... Read more

Answer:Would you trust this drive?

Personally? Nope. I've yet to find a hard drive that will go and have bad errors magically fix themselves. IMO, they will only get worse. I may use it for temporary data storage of stuff I already have backed up, but other than that, I'd see if I could return it.

Peace indeed, good buddy.

Looks like my registry (Vista Premium) is due for a good clean, but I'm not sure which reg cleaner I should trust to do the job.I've heard various people recommend WinASO, Registry Mechanic, Eusing and RegCure and I have trial versions of them all - they all tell me between 500 and 800 errors to clean, but is one noticeably better than another ?(I also have CCleaner, but it tells me only around 100 entries to clean).Any advide around which to use / avoid would be very much appreciated.

Answer:Which Reg Cleaner to trust

most of the errors that are said in the trial are made up to make you buy the product. CCleaner is the best program i have used to clean my registry, and i have used quite a few, and it also works well on vista premium.
