  1. Review - Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater (Mar 16, 2011)

    ESET pick this up as a Virus / Malware threat (Below). Good idea, but seems to be Malicious.

  2. Review - Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack

    1 (Feb 22, 2011)

    ISO is not for most users, If you are using Windows 7, simply use the "Windows Update" Feature.

    If you insist on the ISO, rather then burning (Wasting) a DVD install "Virtual Drive Clone" (http://fileforum.betanew...CloneDrive/1224002998/1) this will make a Virtual CD / DVD Drive and you can "Mount" the ISO image and install from there. (This utility is also handy for mounting Game Images)

    More info and Documentation on SP1 is here:

    Note: Installed SP1 on two (2) systems (Newer) so far, no issues.

  3. Review - USBDeview (32-bit)

    1.77 (Sep 12, 2010)

    I have nooooooo clue what "Sweathog" is talking about, but this is an essential app if you are an IT Tech. It's great to pull up the entire tree of what USB Devices have been connected over time and serves an excellent if nothing else way to clean out all that which is no longer connected and may never connect again.

    My only complaint of this is I wish I had it years ago!

    NirSoft has a bunch of useful application, check them out!

  4. Review - CCEnhancer

    1.3 (Aug 9, 2010)

    I know it's an "Enhancement", but be careful if you use it. For instance, it has an option to clean up "Outlook". One of the files it searches out is the .NK2 file. This is BAD to delete.

    This file holds all the email address information of your frequently typed / used addresses. It's not the address book, but deleting this will start that process allllllll over again. For someone who is used to that Auto Filling and may have hundreds of names / addresses built up, this would be a loss.

    Before using, open the INI file it creates in the CCleaner install directory (winapp2.ini) and browse the file for a few minutes prior to using.

    It does add some nice other options, but use with caution.

  5. Review - Spyware Terminator (Aug 26, 2009)

    I have been using this for years and even with this update, I was not "Forced" to install anything.

    If you do the "Advanced Settings" button @ the start of the install, it lets you choose what you want and don't. You should always do a "Advanced / Custom" setup with ANY software package you install.

    Also use the Direct / Offline version of this Install:

    It's still an effective tool and gets: *****

    And NO "Some Guy" I am no programmer. If fact I am a Desktop Admin that in my 15+ years doing this have learn that becasue a Toolbar is now part of the install does not clarify it as an "Update".

    The Crawler NEVER installs under the Advanced Setup. If you open ST and click that you want "Real Time Protection" and tell it you want it "Enabled" then it will start to download the installer. By Default, the Offline Package (Link above) does NOT include these features as default. You most likely used the Installer provided here which is the "Idiot Proof" one for people that can't be bothered with making their own decisions.

    Uninstall the version you have an use the Offline Installer (Link Above)

  9. Comment - Report: Sony Ericsson prepping 'PlayStation phone' (Aug 13, 2010 - 9:07 AM)

    Lets look into the futre for a sec. Lets "Assume" that this device is built and with success, does that mean we will see an Android Based PS3 or PS4 in the Furture?

    Granted, us PS3 users had our Linux option taken away recently, but imagine your PS3 running Android!

  10. Comment - Apple should sue Gizmodo over stolen iPhone prototype (Apr 21, 2010 - 8:59 AM)

    How about: Apple Employee's / Engineer's given next generation devices should not take them to a PUBLIC place, throw back a few and leave them @ their bar seat.

    If Apple wanted to keep this under wraps, they should have made these people with the new Phone turn them in @ the end of the day. I have been on Contracts that I had to turn in my Badge each day, new technology of this form should be treated the same way.

    The only thing GIZMODO did that I don't agree with is the Teardown, they should have been happy with getting to see / play with the new IPHONE, but they got greedy and like any of us (Including you BETANEWS) you would have done the same thing,

    Plus, if Apple was smart, they would have suspended the service on this one the device was discovered lost.

    Betanews, you just seem mad that you are not getting all the publicity. Stop crying and kissing Steve Job's ass.
