Re: What is best Anti-virus, spyware, malware?

Well, if you keep every application you use in your sandbox, you depend on the sandbox. In case something damages the sandbox, you simply don't want to recreate it from stratch. :( Hmm, i didn't explain this complete enough. What i meant was that every application gets its own sandbox, similiar to ...

Re: What is best Anti-virus, spyware, malware?

There is one badly overlooked way to avoid damage caused by malware: backups. My way to back my data up is quite extreme: I use Clonezilla Live to create complete disk images of my system every week. Look, unless you are an experienced expert of your O/S and quite skilled, you are likely not to even...

Re: Observations and Questions about RAM usage

As explained in what I linked, it's only trimming of a working set, not swapping memory out. Windows (or any other reasonable OS) never swaps memory out unless it's necessary, MS programmers are not that dumb. Sadly, thats not what i see in practice. Neither on my machines nor on other's machines. ...

Re: Console Calculator

Did you know you included your 'CCalc_functions.txt' file in the archive? The original archive (3.0.1) only contains the program and html help file. Oops. :oops: I thought CCalc_functions.txt is there by default. I should have actually opened the file... I'll re-upload the archive after several hou...

Re: FAT32 or NTFS ?

Heh. Just because something is popular, doesn't mean it is good, or even works properly. The general public respond remarkably well to marketing, especially the ignorant ones when it comes to IT matters. There are many examples which I will not mention, this topic already seems to be a little hosti...

Re: Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI)

And I got 1 browser insecurity: Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.x... Insecure, no solution. Well then... I guess it's saying not to use IE?

Re: Too many updates

My proposal for the problem would be this: Normal maximum update-rate per application is once per month. However, if an app updates less often, it can accumulate a buffer of up to 3 updates. Thus, an app that does not put up an update for 3 months, would be able to trigger 3 updates in quick succes...
