  1. Miss-iformation...... it seems you are falling on the same fault after all Ad-aware blocks everything it can, but only if you have the pro version with the Ad-Watch module, I think you never tryied it... Norton, poor? Not so much after all. Bloated, for sure. Antispy, yes it is, it has an additional module since the 2005 second edition (antispyware edition) spyware blaster BLOCKS so it is perfectly legit here, as the poll is for BLOCKERS, not for only findng or removing that stuff Spybot has many more functions you seem to know, first a double blocking module, one integrated in iexplorer, and the second as a real time check program, simple but effective; then it can handle the autostart programs, immunize your computer, using restricted site lists, it can compile automaticly your precious custom host files (actually only one with everything to block inside....) and it needs no work at all because you can simply check some radio buttons and it will keep itself updated and self check your computer at will. you can even use peerguardian to block spyware, simply activating the browser block and loading the spyware list....... so there was some miss information on your side too mate........ by the way custom host files are not absolutely safe/working and they slow down a bit browsing experience, as they have to be checked again and again for every page you visit...... have a nice day you all
  2. I use the same set of tools plus MS antispy for real time control, never ad any problem with spyware since adopted
  3. One of the programs you may use to enable an usb key as access key for your computer is on this site and you don't need any other devce to make it work.
  4. For sure they are all working a lot on marketing, probably more on it than on their scan engines/features, but for compressed viruses to be found by norton the option has to be switched on. By default it is off and norton doesn't scan compressed files... it works perfectly with zip and rar files, but I didn't check with executable-compression tools modified virus files
  5. I checked out many, but always reverted on norton products....
  6. Nvidia hardware firewall (but you need the right mobo) and Norton Internet security suite is just fine
  7. Yes, maxthon. Growing better every time.
  8. Used Edonkey and Edonkey2000 a while, but now Ill' stay with Emule-Morphxt version, full featured with all you need, even peerguardian protection is integrated and auto updating... For the rest of the task ....winmx.
  9. DiskKeeper 9 pro. has double set&forget schedules, mft & pagefile optimization and boot-time systemfiles defrag, wich are workng fine finally, and is less resouce consuming than in the past editions. Tryed norton speed disk but is not as good as before with the old fat systems (it was the best on them), on ntfs it simply can't stand diskeeper. perfectdisk and O&O defrag are not bad probably the first one is better out of this two, but not as good as diskkeeper is.
  10. Yes, and after that check out what was the last thing your friend did before having the problem, o/c? New Drivers? sw install? and try to revert that last action, may be you could use F( option "last known god"
  11. German and Italian (double mother language.... Had a smart father) But use english for my jobs and online, understand and speak a little of a ancient catalan dialect used in my town in sardinia. french and spanish are going to be the next ones to be learned
  12. Used nvidia up to now, now I'm waiting for a new radeon x800pro card....
  13. You can give a try to UnattenXP by Maxxpsoft it integrates almost all you need, applications too. UnattendXP web page You need to register to have access rights to download section, new version is coming out.
  14. Well, good luck then.... hope you'll make it to get the piii running
  15. There are many, and many are out of production, you can find for sure something at you local seller, I use an asus p2b (slot1) and have a PIII 650@866 ovorclocked for 2 years and works perfectly, no crash at all, you'll probably have normal sdram modules wich will fit in almost every mobo
  16. I don't know where you got this datum but if you check this link Gygabyte pentium 3 600 cpu support mb list you'll see that your model is missing, probably it cannot support that cpu... And if you che the multiplier it supports maximum 5.5x on the mobo specifics page wich means 550 with a piii 100mhz fsb... Ga 6bxe needs some more investigation on hardware related forums.
  17. Did you update the bios to the latest version available for your motherboard before switching the PIII cpu? Check on the Official site and look for the version number need by the mb design (usually MBs are serialized like programs = board ver.1.0, board ver 1.2, etc) and bios revision to have that PIII cpu to work with it, and if you need a newer bios, the put back the old cpu download bios, boot , update, switch again cpus, reset cmos, and let it run for another try. hope it helps
  18. I used all windows products from starting with an olivetti m24 and dos 3.3 and for sure i got something more from every release of e new product, so now my chose is XP, and waiting for LH. used beos and linux too. It's simply a matter of viewpoint, if you share the same viewpoint then you understand each other position. From the viewpoint of somebody in need of loosening a screw, a knife could be fine, a screwdriver perfect, if you have to unlock hudrets of them, you will certainly look for an electric tool, Seems you are trying to compare dimentions wich are not so easily comparable without to account the use you have for them. millimeters and kilometer are comparable but wich one are you going to use to measure a street. You alll know that you can tweak XP to look/feel/behave very similar to 98, to be faster and so on, but there are really persons not needing the change at all and learning to tweak is too much, they have other interest/hobbies, and probabli they are never getting a crash from 98 because they are not putting it to its limits, I got a crash from 98 10 times a day, 8 with 98se, 3 with winME and with XP next to 1 every few weeks (my computer runs 24h/day). so simply lets see how many "screws" you have to work on before telling everybody an electric tool is better.... MTVento Excuse me for my "whaky" english, just to throw my 2 pennies
  19. Ok, solved downloading of pdf. As "save as..." didn't work, have checked browser and download manager settings.... flashget was not sending refferer, enabling it seemed to solve, now downloading... did you change anything on the site? MTVento
  20. I use Maxthon, edless functionalities, free/custom plugins for every need and skins too... Hightly recomended
  21. Same Problem.... links me back to index.htm.... Don't know why no FW and cookies accepted
  22. funny story... It was almost done last night....then people reported errors Perfection is a limit to tend to,getting every time closer to it, but never going to be reached... So we'll wait a little bit more for that. However you're doing great on all this. thank you
  23. That was a Big job. I didn't test all of it, are you going to update the downloadable pdf version too?
  24. Norton cannot work as it installs system services and drivers written only for win32...... probably they are going to update them onl official launch Symantec is making money from nortons name and they definetly will follow using this "gold mine". But what about nlite, xpcreate, maxxpsoftunattendedc., an xpize, flyakiteosx etc.? all the hard work of people in this forum, they all need to be updated, for sure many of them.
