    Keeping secure connections in an XP/Win7 net


    By Fred Langa

    Can a secure Windows 7 computer safely share an Internet connection of an unsecured Windows XP computer? The answer is yes, if you're careful and use the correct settings.

    This is my first time posting a reply to a column in the WS Lounge & frankly I find the UI unusually awkard & difficult to use. This is from someone who has been an avid FL follower since the good old days.

    First, my post has nothing to do with the main article, " Leftover software setting causes trouble" but a 'sub-article' (should have been separate in the first place, entitled "Leftover software setting causes trouble". Fred takes the submitter of the question in the article through several painstaking, time-consuming, & uneeded steps (all IMHO!). All the individual has to do to complete the task he inquires about is to very simply download a free copy of "Revouninstaller" & have it take care of all of the manual steps automatically in no more more than 5-10 minutes, if that. I'll gladly stand by my suggestion 100%. Sorry Fred...

    Yes and no. The free edition is nowhere near complete in its system cleanup (especially on 64-bit systems even for 32-bit programs). And it doesn't uninstall 64-bit programs (which are few but growing in numbers).
