That would be nice, though I know both FF and Chrome do this automatically.

I too would enjoy a link. Does anyone know if this will work with Avast!? It would be nice to use both. If no one has, then I will try it and let you know.

Anyone have a light firewall for Seven that is effective and simple (with out lots of pop ups)? I should put one on my laptop.

I should scan it when Firefox creates the file

It should work with both, it might slow your system down a bit with two applications scanning all your files though

I dont know what Firefox really scans on downloads but it defiantly aint for Virus's, It does it on systems that have no AntiVirus

I don't know either....

And Avast! is taking up less than 2 mb right now........... and Adaware is using less than 1. So I think another won't bother me.

Link?

I have run a series of applications through their paces (Photoshop CS4, Lightroom 2.4, Canvas 11, VMware 6.5, all MS Office applications, Firefox, Opera, IE8, Quicken, and WMP 11, and there has been no problems as of yet, and hopefully never.
Memory use ... on my lappie with only 2GB (x86, 7229), MSE takes about 2.5MB.

On my desktop (i7, 6GB, x64 7229), MSE takes up about 30MB.

So, what's the difference? The lappie still has the pagefile.sys enabled whereas the desktop doesn't. It would appear that MSE pages out a lot of stuff that it doesn't need all the time, if the pagefile is enabled. I don't know this for a fact, it's just a guess.
