    I had similar problems with Avast recently. Avast have taken a tumble with quality in recent months / year, since v7. They have focused more on pretty (useless) GUIs and adding extra products to get...

    Still no compelling reason to "upgrade" from Win 7 on my laptops and desktop. I'll be on 7 until support runs out in 2020. Otherwise for my tablets and mobile devices I use Android and all are...

    I personally don't see Mulally as being the right CEO for MS, unless Bill Gates steps back into a much more dynamic engagement with the company. Tech companies need tech visionaries as well as...

    Well said. MS consistently reject compliance with web standards and I find that aspect of what they do to be one of the most despicable tactics.

    Well said moss, but I will probably go for Linux Mint or similar, it truly is excellent and the learning curve from Windows 7 is far less compared to trying to figure out the Windows 8 mess. However...

    Will compressing the Win 7 OS on an SSD affect the system response time? I can't believe there will be no noticeable impact, does anyone have experience of doing this?

    The most obvious issue will be that when you open a windows file it may be infected and you would not know. It would not affect the ubuntu system which will not be affected by windows malware, but...

    A lot of the Russian cash probably went into gold which then got hit with naked shorts of staggering proportions orchestrated by the Fed and their friends. The Fed and the Troika are doing their...

    For a desktop Win 8 makes no sense. Switching to mac might make sense for some, but i will not lock myself in to them. I have installed Linux Mint on several PCs and laptops and it is great. I do...

    I was surprised not to see Hitman Pro. It is a free tool which scans using MULTIPLE AV databases from several respected companies, so the user is not left to the hit and miss approach of just using...

    This proves without doubt that all our personal data and images are routinely scanned assessed as "appropriate" by someone or something. It seems this used to be reserved for countries like China yet...

    Hardly surprising that you have a clash between any good AV with it's own in-built banking protections and something like Rapport. They basically clash because they are performing the same functions....

    Good point, and the answer is surely that it's short term thinking and not wanting to pay a little extra to avert disaster.

    Several years ago I wondered about the wisdom of data centers being in Manhattan when they could be not too far away on higher ground or upstate and perhaps have a hydroelectric source of power.

    This guy is irrepsonsible to say the least. A firewall is ESSENTIAL as part of a layered approach to security.

    Each layer is not going to be perfect, as he does point out, but collectively all the...

    Microsoft are already in a hole, and with this kind of nonsense they are just diggi.ng deeper. I want MS to succeed, but they won't if they keep on ignoring real users who matter.
