  1. ha, i just uninstalled ad-aware a few minutes ago and spybot too. they're not what they used to be in my opinion. thanks for checking over my log!!! i guess i'll have to check out that antisuperspy thingy again. i remember 2 years ago when it was first introduced i had it for a week then i tossed it out. it was hanging up when i was scanning.
  2. this log is for these issues posted here Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 3:55:08 PM, on 9/1/2008 Platform: Windows Vista SP1 (WinNT 6.00.1905) MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6001.18000) Boot mode: Normal Running processes: C:\Windows\system32\taskeng.exe C:\Windows\system32\Dwm.exe C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe C:\Program Files\Hp\QuickPlay\QPService.exe C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Quick Launch Buttons\QLBCTRL.exe C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Wireless Assistant\HPWAMain.exe C:\Program File
  3. nice! i didn't think i would have so much java junk left over from the last uninstall when i upgraded to a newer version on my vista machine.
  4. lurking around the CrapCleaner forums, i think Tarun was a Moderator there at the time and had a link to here in his signature or something like that.
  5. Holycow! that has me all excited to build a desktop.
  6. ahh! i misread and didn't understand your question correctly. the best possible security is you. knowing what you download and staying away from bad sites is the best possible way to maintain a good and clean OS. i wish there was an all in one security application that has it all and be effective. currently i have my router firewall, Comodo Pro firewall, Avir AntiVirus, and Windows Defender. to have one single program that does everything would be great.
  7. duh..he seems to be still stuck from the year in which WinXP first came out
  8. first thoughts when i read your question is that we are pretty much always bombarded with having safe internet practices such as don't open email's that have attachments form unknown names or sources, don't visit porn sites etc. etc. the emphasis has been if you have a good layered security system that includes firewalls, anti-spam, anti-virus, and the like, the OS will stay healthy. you can visit literally a hundred different forums and you will find most will have a greater emphasis on security related topics rather then topics on how to maintain a healthy OS. when a forum is found specific
  9. I always had the impression that making a "backup" copy of a CD or DVD was legal as long as it is not used in any type of sharing.
  10. you may have this story confused with Jammie Thomas was who ordered to pay $220,000 to the big record companies a few months ago. That's $9,250 for each of 24 songs she was accused of sharing online. apparently the above law suit is based on this... "The industry's lawyer in the case, Ira Schwartz, argues in a brief filed earlier this month that the MP3 files Howell made on his computer from legally bought CDs are "unauthorized copies" of copyrighted recordings. "I couldn't believe it when I read that," says Ray Beckerman, a New York lawyer who represents six clients who have been sued b
  11. The Recording Industry a**. of America (RIAA) has began a legal spat with a man who copied CDs he had bought onto his computer. Jeffery Howell of Scottsdale, Arizon has taken his case to court after he received a letter from the RIAA, reports the Washington Post. The RIAA, which lobbies on behalf of a music industry hammered by tumbling sales as fans increasingly turn to free downloads and file sharing for their listening pleasure, insists that it is illegal for someone who has legally bought a CD to transfer that music into his computer. And, it seems that Howell is the latest indivi
  12. nice! and like what DjLizard mentioned, reading the comments said a lot about the story.
  13. welcome Happyface, i think you will learn a thing or two here at Lunarsoft, enjoy!
  14. i usually use Avast but now and again i'll try something else for a bit but always i'll end up with Avast. and thanks for looking at the log
  15. just wondering what everyone has and how much you like it. as for me, i have the Sandisk Sansa e280R and i love it. i guess originally i was interested in the iPOD cuz basically just about everyone has em. after some research i decided that i didn't want to be restricted to iTUNES so i ended up with the Sansa. i also use MediaMonkey to manage my music library and to convert my music to MP3 and FLAC formats. good stuff.
  16. originally i was going to do a clean install of Vista in order to get rid of the excess and unwanted programs that came pre-installed. but i was told that the restore disc's from HP will only put everything back as they were, so i'll have to remove things manually. more time consuming but oh-well. already i see quite a few things to remove.

  17. Is aMSN worth the download? At this point I'm looking for an IM service to install onto my new laptop with Vista. I have several IM applications on my old laptop including AIM/adHack which I used the most, I wonder if that is compatable with Vista?
