  1. Split from Problems with computer. For continued discussion about firewalls, faults of specific firewalls, and/or which one to use please use this thread.
  2. If you're using a software-based personal firewall what is it?
  3. Can you give a better explaination for that statement? It does a good job at blocking incoming traffic. Although it doesn't do anything to block outgoing traffic. After putting up with bugs in Sygate Personal Firewall for years, and recently ZoneAlarm (free) I've found that Windows Firewall is the only firewall I've used in years that hasn't given me any noticable problems. It also passes the ShieldsUp test as TruStealth at GRC.com (Please no grcsucks.com links).
  4. Does it happen when you are online, or offline? Are you running a firewall? If it happens when you're online, and you don't have a third-party personal firewall installed at the very least make sure you enable the Windows Firewall. The reason I say this is because years ago my system would occassionally freeze, shutdown, and reboot due to not running a firewall. I believe that behavior is an outside attack called BootPC which comes in on TCP ports 67, and 68, albeit I don't know if that's what's causing your problem.

    Java (Sun)

    I personally have never liked using Java based app's because they always seemed rather sluggish, of course that was based upon my usage of them on my Win98 system. I also don't like .NET app's especially after using ATI's display drivers that have the ATI control panel which is .NET based. Since I know how it reacts with my system I now only use the standard Windows GUI styled ATI control panel driver. The sluggish performance seems as if it'll bring my WinXP Pro system to a halt, even though my system has 1 GB Ram & a 3.2 Ghz P4 w/HT, hence the reason I avoid them.
  6. @ Tarun: You want a good laugh; I had already edited that sentence once. It originally read "You English if very good!" @ Tandem21: I'm from Iowa, in the United States.
  7. I don't think Spybot SD is getting behind its competition. Look at the tools it comes with, which in my opinion are pretty robust.
  8. Perhaps it's because the cookies were deleted, try this: 1. Open CCleaner 2. Disable/Uncheck Cookies under the CCleaner tab Windows->Internet Explorer

    Since allot of us post images in many forums I've began to notice that allot of bandwidth can be saved if some images were saved as .png image files instead of .jpg and then optimized. advpng http://advancemame.sourceforge.net/comp-readme.html Recompression utility for .png files. Comes with the advancecomp package.
  10. I must admit I use allot of apps that don't even touch the registry and run strickly from an .ini file, or a command line driven. Here's my list:
  11. Highly and very remotely unlikely that CCleaner will mess up the registry. It's the safest cleaning tool available!
  12. Take a look at this thread: http://forum.CCleaner.com/index.php?showtopic=801
  13. I second what DjLizard said! CCleaner is a safe cleaner, having it mess with whole profiles or windows backups would make it an unsafe cleaner that the average user would eventually make a grave mistake because they wouldn't know what they're doing, hell even an experienced user could shoot themself in both foot. I can only image the complaints that would spawn up all over the forum with people saying it deleted a profile, it deleted a Win backup and now a service pack can't be removed, etc.
  14. Don't know if this will work or not, since it's for forcing defragmentation on low disk space. Command Prompt, type in: defrag -f c: replace c: with the drive letter you want to to work with.

    ...unless it removed so much junk that the disk now needs to be defragmented.
  16. Nope, no automatic registry backup in NT based versions of Windows, you can read about it in erunt.txt: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/erunt.txt
  17. I've been getting false positives for months now about some CoolWebSearch sites I block in the HOSTS file.
  18. There's a Nokia (don't remember model number) on a T.V. commercial here in the U.S. that supposedly has it.
  19. I don't know what 139.com tries to do or not and ain't to interested to find out, however it started showing up a few years ago in my firewall log's. I've been blocking it for many years now via Internet Explorers restricted sites, and via the HOSTS file.
  20. Read erunt.txt, pay close attention to what's in Introduction.
  21. CCleaner doesn't touch or mess with with: C:\Windows\System32\Shell.dll C:\Windows\System32\Shell32.dll
  22. Below listed in the code is what Mozilla Suite does. Its the default cache files only, if you download file(s) for instance a setup file it will create one especially for it. C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\User Profile\*.slt\Cache_CACHE_001__CACHE_002__CACHE_003__CACHE_MAP_ It also doesn't save files as people are used to in Internet Explorer, they have no extensions. This could possibly be a reason why it's more difficult to get virus, and spyware infected via Mozilla Suite, and Mozilla Firefox.
  23. Has anyone else seen this TeaTimer GUI bug? Notice how the action buttons are only about 10% visible.
