I agree Tews,, some people will never get it.

But this debate will go on for a life time,, just as the debate of PageFile sizes etc. What services to disable or not. What the Take Ownership tool should really be used for.

I challenge those who think it is useless to prove it. Not through "I have anti-virus therefore I am safe" statements. Prove how it is useless and back it up with facts.

What I'm missing in these kind of posts is the words "In my opinion". People tending to forget them, stating their objective opinions as subjective facts are normally those "Of course I know this better than you" types whose advice can in some cases really destroy your computer.

My mind is made up. Don't confuse me with facts.
