Windows 7: My Windows 7 Journey

My Windows 7 Journey

Hey all! I just recently went from XP to 7. I have a desktop with Pro and a netbook with Ultimate. I came here back when I first got the two pcs and had a lot of questions and got priceless info. After research and experimentation this is what I settled on.

I already had the lifetime paid versions of Malware Bytes and Super Antispyware. I am running both of those in real time and with daily scans, alongside the paid version of Avast Security. The only reason I paid for Avast was because of a 2 year special that they were running. I have Avast setup in real time with daily scans.

I have had absolutely 0 conflicts whatsoever, and all 3 are running great!!

Thanks again!!

Jack

Hello jack 1953,

Might I suggest you consider SpywareBlaster too.{ free & paid versions available}
It will give you another layer of protection also.
Read about it here...

SpywareBlaster® | Prevent spyware and malware. Free download.

BTW. What firewall are you using?

Thanks JMH, I will check it out. I am using the firewall from Avast. I got a deal on Avast Security System for 2 computers and 2 years.

Downloaded and installed SpywareBlaster. From what I can gather, it has no scan feature and the free version has to be updated manually in order to keep protection up to date? Is that pretty much it? Getting the paid version gives you automatic updates?
Thanks,
Jack

You're right.
There's no scanning involved.
SB puts a ton of known bad sites in IE's Restricted sites and in many other Browsers too.
Just check for updates once a week.

How does SpywareBlaster's protection work?

Similar to how one might plug the leaky holes in a ship, SpywareBlaster secures your browser against potentially unwanted software and sites - preventing the installation of spyware and other potentially unwanted software, exploitation of security vulnerabilites, and much more. Most importantly, however, SpywareBlaster works without interfering with the good side of the web.

SpywareBlaster provides protection for your favorite web browser(s):

Internet Explorer
Mozilla Firefox
Netscape
Seamonkey
Pale Moon
K-Meleon

and browsers that use the IE engine, including:
AOL web browser
Avant Browser
Slim Browser
Maxthon (formerly MyIE2)
Crazy Browser
GreenBrowser
I already have an anti-spyware program. Why do I need SpywareBlaster®? - Kayako SupportSuite Help Desk Software

The only thing I don't see that would be nice is if it was designed to protect Chrome. I use IE on my netbook, but chrome on my desktop. I guess I could import bookmarks into IE on the desktop as well!

JMH, what is the benefit for the paid version of SB?

Disregard, I located it: SpywareBlaster® AutoUpdate

I have never used this product before. I'm going to try it out.

Update: I went to download the SpywareGuard companion and got this warning:

Hi, BugOutMachine.

That is a false/positive by Comodo. The http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/ website is safe.

The journey of a UPS package
Hi everyone. Don't you guys think it's funny when you track a package that you're expecting from UPS or FedEx? Right now I'm waiting on some parts from Newegg, and these are all the places the packages have gone through: 05/23/2011 23:10:00 IN TRANSIT TO MADISON HEIGHTS, MI, US ...

The CPU, a small journey
We all know what the CPU is, some of us know how it works. To me it is a bit of a mystery how it does all it does. Here is an old AMD Athlon64 3500+, 2.2Ghz and it is about 1 9/16th" square. A pretty tiny device containing millions or billions of transisters, memory controller, instructions, and...
