Probably because Bonjour is Steve's way of finding out what you're doing on your PC. Apple TV afaic is spyware, and undoubtedly the biggest resource hog has got to be any build of Nero.

All Steve needs to know is that I'm not using a Mac

Nero Suites are shocking. Nero micro ftw

And with this new version of Windows, why would you?

I get Solitaire going before I start a burn, simply because (1) I'm so used to Nero taking up resources when it starts any assigned task, and (2) Nero eats up so much it's a killer to do anything else but play Solitaire!

Does anyone know when Daemon Tools will release a build that is compatible with Win7?

Hi, just adding my 2 cents worth, itunes, yeah its a pain, but the latest version works fine (using 7077 build), also the latest daemon tools FINALLY works in windows 7, for all you that don't know this.

Correct - So, swarfega, remove it *and* Alcohol from the list.

Hi all, I'm using Smart Defrag across all my drives with no problems that I can see. I also used it in optimizer mode and it's done wonders for my Vista x64 install. Hasn't made much difference to W7 7100 but that's new anyway so shouldn't be in too much of a mess yet
Also I've installed and run SUPERAntiSpyware with no problems.
I am having difficulty with MediaPortal. It's not doing any harm but just won't configure properly.

Best wishes, John
