Windows 7: Polling the online activities of the 'digitally active'

Polling the online activities of the 'digitally active'

PC Tools recently commissioned a survey investigating online habits, to ensure we’re providing relevant products, services and information to you - our ‘digitally active’ customer.

The results are nothing short of surprising. A staggering 57% of people surveyed would give up alcohol before giving up the Internet, while 11% would give up their job and 8.6% would go without sex to stay connected!

What would you miss most if you didn't have Internet access?

Social media ranked first with 68% of participants responding that socializing with others would be the hardest Internet activity to give up with increasing numbers turning to the Internet for love. A revealing 30% indicated that one of the hardest online activities they would have to sacrifice is sexually related content!

Our survey also reported a solid 29% considered work-related information difficult to part with, with the remaining 28% claiming that losing news and celebrity updates would be the hardest.

No matter what your activity of choice, it will come as no surprise that cybercriminals will continue targeting the most popular online activities in 2010 with malware, viruses, spyware and more

It is amazing. Even with those cars, you know at first glance which is the Ford and which is the Chevy.

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

To be honest, I am not surprised. My wife has become obsessed with Facbook. There are times I would have gone nutts if I didn't have Internet access to news while at work. As far as going without sex - is anyone even doing that anymore?

How to increase USB polling rate?
I was able to increase polling rate for my USB mouse very easily (but just downloading and running a program) in Windows XP, but from what I've read on the net, changing the USB polling rate for a mouse in Windows 7 is much more involved. Does anyone have any info on how to go about doing this?
