  1. Review - UnHackMe Beta (Jun 19, 2017)

    No comparison to Malwarebytes. Interface looks old. Scan was much slower than MWB.

  2. Review - qBittorrent for Windows

    3.3.13 (Jun 1, 2017)

    This is my everyday torrent client. Works well, nice interface, no spyware.

  3. Review - K-Meleon

    76.0 RC (Dec 15, 2016)

    It's usable, but not impressive one bit. Everything seemed to be excessively slow. I was viewing the same site on 3 different browsers and K-Meleon was the slowest. Probably downloads chrome or firefox really well.

  4. Review - Plex Media Server for Windows (Apr 8, 2016)

    Been using this for years as my media server for the house. Then use either Roku or chromecast for receiving it. Works perfect.

  5. Review - Microsoft Snip

    0.1.5119.0 (Jan 29, 2016)

    It's not bad, and it's free. However, it lacks most of the features that some of the larger capture apps have. But for a simple app to grab a quick screenshot, its quite effective. This should be part of windows.

  6. Comment - Dell promises to protect business customers' right not to use Vista

    I agree with you to a certain point....

    Yes, if Mac is on top, there will be more focus to exploiting it, however, due to the way that the mac os is designed (tis unix after all), there is less of a threat than there is in XP/Vista/2k. Unix by its design is much more secure than windows. Been working in both environments for about 10 years, and I cant remember ever having to clean a virus or malware from a linux box or a mac system...ever. least a few times a week. Maybe unix/mac users are a bit more savvy not to click on the banner offering them free sex at 3am...but I would put my money on the OS. If MS used a unix kernel on win 7, then they might have a winner. It worked for mac. Unless you were a mac fanboy from years past, the macos got solid once it was based on bsd. I truly hated the macos until it hit osx.

  7. Comment - Dell promises to protect business customers' right not to use Vista

    Have you ever used Vista? Or even better...have you had to support 200+ workstations? We do not want Vista in there at all. Why? Because its not about "moving on"...its about being able to keep business as usual. Vista is inferior to XP in the business arena, and in the business world, as I am sure you are aware, is about money. Personal users want to "move on" then thats fine. But in the business world, you cant just "move on". Because in "moving on" it could involve hundreds of man hours, and not to mention, tons of money having to replace hardware and software that is in the business world that wont work in vista. Try getting a job in IT schmuck and you will see that the world doesnt revolve around revolves around whats best for the users and the company. If we upgrade to Vista...we HAVE to upgrade all of the hardware. Suddenly, the cost has tripled, the time investment has tripled...just to install an OS that isnt ready for prime time.

  9. Comment - Death Knell Sounds for Nullsoft, Winamp

    0.1.5119.0 (Nov 11, 2004 - 1:32 PM)

    I, for one, will miss winamp. Until recently (started to use media center from jriver) its been my only media player. I remember dumping winplay (circa 1997) and going to winamp and never looked back. However, media center came to v. 10 and it just kicked ass. So winamp, old friend, you will be missed.

  10. Comment - Microsoft Reissues DirectX 9 Update

    0.1.5119.0 (Mar 26, 2003 - 7:48 PM)

    I am glad to see that this update came out. I have an ATI AIW 7500. I had just reinstalled Windows 2000 and decided to install DX9 and the newest catalyst drivers. After that, my TV capture would not work. I always leave contacting support as the last result, but after I tried everything I could think of, I emailed ATI, and got the lamest canned response that I have ever seen. It was just a set of links to their basic installation. I even took the time to email them my whole sysinfo about my box and all the details. No wonder end users lose their minds, you have to be quite skilled with PC's to be able to solve half the problems that arise. Since tech support for most of these companies are a joke. I can say that since I work in tech support. Heheh...
