Security Software Programs / Windows Vista Firewall
« on: January 18, 2007, 02:46:23 AM »
Just wanted to let everyone know a little bit about Vista's new Firewall.

Do not be deceived by the Firewall in Windows Vista.

 It is a fully configurable firewall with plenty of power. And highly configurable once you enter it's Enhanced Interface.

 Note: The firewall in Vista is set by default, half disabled.
You should learn about Vista's firewall, and set it up to fill your own needs.

Here is a link that should help you learn and configure Vista's Firewall to receive the best protection for your system.
It's a bit lengthy, that's why the link

I had a problem and was recommended to Lanzdown because they were understanding of newbies questions. By the time I did eventually get here the problem had been fixed but thought I would join anyway.   Imagine my surprise when I got a Welcome post....simple but oh so effective -made me want to continue visiting.

Then........GR@PH;<'S and ripley started giving me a hard time so just had to stay :-)))

That's what makes it so great here. :D

Here's a party favorite.

Beer Can Chicken

Q) Why did the chicken cross the road? A) Because it couldn't remember where it left its beer

1 (4-pound) whole chicken
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons of your favorite dry spice rub
1 can beer

Remove neck and giblets from chicken and discard. Rinse chicken inside and out, and pat dry with paper towels. Rub chicken lightly with oil then rub inside and out with salt, pepper and dry rub. Set aside.
Open beer can and take several gulps (make them big gulps so that the can is half full). Place beer can on a solid surface. Grabbing a chicken leg in each hand, plunk the bird cavity over the beer can. Transfer the bird-on-a-can to your grill and place in the center of the grate, balancing the bird on its 2 legs and the can like a tripod.
Cook the chicken over medium-high, indirect heat (i.e. no coals or burners on directly under the bird), with the grill cover on, for approximately 1 1/4 hours or until the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F in the breast area and 180 degrees F in the thigh, or until the thigh juice runs clear when stabbed with a sharp knife. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

It's taste great. At least after you gulp half the beer :hammy:

I started my site three years ago. I did it to see if I could. Had no Idea what I was doing but I got one up and running. Boy was I happy when I got a couple of hits on it at the time. With-in the first year I was surprised by how it took off.
 Not bad for a first try. I haven't changed it at all. Just keep adding to it. Tho some have said I should change the appearance. Why mess with a good thing I allways say.

Here is my site, Which is also my sig.

I've been playing with the "Prefetch" for years. I'll let it go for months and months without touching it. Then clean it out weekly to see the differences. (Have been playing for a long time with it)

If you clean it out. You will lose startup time for the first couple of reboots. I recommend rebooting three times to get things back to a normal startup. And on the average, only gain a couple of seconds startup time by cleaning it out.

The prefetches "layout.ini" file will rebuild itself. (rebuild really isn't the word) every three days. But the files in the folder will always stay there. The "layout.ini" file just reworks itself to change the priority of the files it prefetches. If you have a program you only used once. It will give it a low priority and not waste time fully preloading it up on a bootup. On the other hand, a program you use allot will get a high priority and be more ready to act when you need it.
 I have found really no real bases to clean out the prefetch folder, except maybe on a yearly or maybe bi-yearly bases. And that's if you use or more-so remove numerous different programs.
I have seen the differences to cleaning out the prefetch folder. And like I said earlier. If you haven't removed a whole bunch of old programs from your PC. Then cleaning it out is a waste of time. And will slow things down a couple of seconds for the first couple of bootups. But after that you will not really notice any difference.

In my opinion, Just leave the prefetching alone. And let the system handle it. It takes care of itself just fine and dandy.

skittle, Sad story.
Sounds like they didn't have everything lined up when they replaced the serpentine belt. And with everything in the wrong spot when they started it up. I'll bet they knew right off the bat what the deal was. And tried to hide everything. That's the problems it would cause if they did.

Merry Christmas Everyone......   O, Hee Hee. Good things always make my happy and wanting to shout.
Welcome Back!!!!

Don't know how many people have tried Netscape. But their newest build 8.1 has a new Security Center that has an extensive scan built into the Adware part of the center.

 The other day I was playing around with IE7 Beta, and came across a questionable site. As soon as I hit the site, something started to install itself. Tried 3 times to stop it before I thought I got it.

Since I was testing IE7 Beta out. I then tried the same site with Firefox. Same thing started to happen. All of a sudden something started to download itself to my PC. Well since I have been playing with the newer browsers. I brought up Netscape 8.1 and once more hit said site. This time Netscape's new Security Center caught and stopped the download and asked what I wanted to do. So I am highly impressed with Netscape 8.1 new Security.

So now to find the downloaded culprit. I used all my favorites. Adaware, Spybot, Ewendo, a2 (or a squared), Bazooka, M$ Antispyware and Avast. Everything came up clean.
I figured it should. I ran scans the night before and everything came up clean. I also used the Spyware-adware scan from Netscape earlier.

So I thought why not try it for this scan. Lo and behold, this time it found an installed keylogger.

So as I said. I am highly impressed with Netscape 8.1. Now I'm not telling everyone to get and use it. But I now do recommend at least the use of it's Ad-Spyware scanner. And when I go snooping around the "other side of the tracks". I will use Netscape because it security. I figured IE would have problems, but Firefox kinda let me down for security.

 BUT don't get me wrong.......I'm using Firefox right now. It's still my favorite browser. But for snooping around "The Dark Side", I'll use Netscape.
