  1. Review - Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (Dec 17, 2016)

    Running Win10 64, Malwarebytes 2.1 Premium. Anti Exploit installs but shuts down IE browser. Edge seems to work but I still like IE. I tried running Malwarebytes 3.0. Same thing, it killed IE. I think this version of Anti Exploit is built into MB 3.0. The other thing I did not like about MB 3.0 was the orange pop up menu in the right lower corner of the screen, activate protection every time you restart.

  2. Review - Core Temp

    1.1 (Jul 4, 2016)

    Well done, ver 1.1 works great, all info for my setup is correct and settings are saved. 5930@4114 Great little utility.

  3. Review - avast! Free Antivirus

    12.1.2272 (Jun 23, 2016)

    I can find no fault with Avast. I am running Win10 and it has performed perfectly. The logo in the tray flashes when it is scanning, checks Email scans at boot, web pages, I like it better than the stock Win Defender.

  4. Review - Zoom Player MAX (Beta)

    12.1 RC1 (Jun 18, 2016)

    I tried the latest and could not get it to play a Blue Ray from a folder. I don't think it even played from the drive I liked the interface of Zoom but I went back to VLC which runs perfectly. Win10 64, 5930, 1080 SC.

  5. Review - nVIDIA GeForce Drivers for Windows

    368.22 (May 24, 2016)

    Running a 2011-3, 980 and Win10 64. I just ran a quick test with FM 06. Used DDU to do a clean install on each driver. 365.19 worked better for me.

  6. Comment - Target to Push Blu-ray Over HD DVD

    368.22 (Jul 28, 2007 - 11:25 PM)

    It has been debunked, Sony once again dumped a bunch of BS. HD will continue to be sold at Target.

  7. Comment - Vista Premium Requirements Detailed

    368.22 (Jun 17, 2006 - 10:34 PM)

    I have been using XP64 with great success. I have tried both versons of Vista, 32 & 64 bit, and have to take a wait and see position. Right at the moment I don't think the developer support is there.

    This is my experience with Vista Beta 2. All installs were clean on a separtate hard drive.

    Intellipoint 5.5, failed to install on 32 bit would work on 64 bit.

    Creative X-Fi drivers, installed on 32 bit but not on 64 bit. (drivers are beta and still rough) Realtek onboard sound drivers work.

    Raxco Perfect Disk 7.0, fails to install on 32 or 64. Version 8 will be out the first of the year.

    Acronis True Image 9.1, installed on 32 but not 64.

    Zip Utilities, Quick Zip worked the best, many others failed.

    One of my favorite file mangers, Drag & File, was marginally stable on 64bit

    Nvidia Beta Video drivers worked but also are still rough on the edges.

    The Nvidia NF4 chipset drivers have no install other that using the .inf files. I think Vista natively covers some of this.

    Printr /Scanner drivers, I only used the built in HP 4 Plus drivers in Vista, which worked OK. I use a Canon 8400F Scanner and an Epson 200 in XP64, should have tried them but I gave up at this point.

    Overall Vista is pretty, it seems a little slower than XP, either version. (probably related to drivers) Maybe after the first of the year.

  8. Comment - Problems Installing Windows Defender?

    368.22 (Feb 18, 2006 - 7:54 PM)

    I installed the version for XP64 (three times) and also found it would not update, it left the little exclamation mark on the tray icon and left the warning that my definitions were more than 20 days old when the program was opened.

    I also liked the extra tools for cleanup that version 1 had, now removed. Like the Ole, Ball Game, three strikes and your out, but then that's why it is BETA.
