  1. I like SpeedFan

    SpeedFan is a program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures. SpeedFan supports SCSI disks too. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some hardware (but this should be considered a bonus feature). SpeedFan can access digital temperature sensors and can change fan speeds accordingly, thus reducing noise. SpeedFan can find almost any hardware monitor chip connected to the 2-wire SMBus (System Management Bus (trademark belonging to SMIF, Inc.), a subset of the I2C protocol) and works fine with Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista and Windows 7. It works with Windows 64 bit too.
  2. Thanks for the response but i think Hostsman is more complicated.

    Please read:

    Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File


    It works with all browsers. :)

    Just broken

    Broken. If you have more than 9 sites listed, so that the input window has to scroll, it starts blocking everything.


    Firefox add-ons are much more complicated to maintain and some conflict with each other.

  3. @YK1: Speaking of 300 baud modems, I've been searching for years (yes I *am* persistant) for the actual, written statement by the Ma Bell engineer who said with all his 30 years of telephony experience, "Twisted copper pair phone lines would NEVER support more than a 300 baud signal. 300 baud was the ABSOLUTE limit!" I'd have loved to have seen the look on his face when he saw the 56K baud modem at work.. on twisted, copper pairs.. :blink:

    Not many people know the difference between baud and bps.

    With quadrature modulation you can send many more bits on a baud.


    I worked with enginers that developed the 56K bps modem for IBM in Raleigh N.C. and Bill Gates got a hissy fit at that time with IBM for OS/2 so he decided to develop Windows further and as the saying goes The rest is history.

    Who would have thought you can get 6MB on twisted, copper pairs with DSL. :blink:

  4. as far as Intel based box, Ran Win 3.0 for 20 minutes and nuked it, 3.1 for 2 weeks and nuked it.... IBM OS/2 until IBM canned it. (IBM = dumb, OS/2 Warp was bulletproof)...

    I feel old... I'll shutup now and drink my Geritol...

    I feel your pain.

    I had to use OS/2 Warp Communication Manager to set up those 300baud modems.

    This will be familliar: :blink:

    The Sound of dial-up Internet


  5. I tried, it isn't compatible with Firefox 3.6.13. I have IE 8 but I do not use it. hmm

    I don't use Firefox but I do use IE8 and I do not know why Finjan has not updated for the latest Firefox.

    Whatever security browser extension you choose is a matter of preference but I do know that Finjan Secure Browsing works well on both IE8 and IE9.

    For some reason I have an aversion to anything from Norton(Symantec).

  6. I had checked out Fingan in Dec and it doesn't support Windows 7, if I remember right. :welcome:

    It sure supports Windows 7 with IE9.

    I have not tried Browser Defender but I'll give it a try.


    It really slowed down my IE8 on my XP Pro system so I removed it.

  7. Neither.

    I have used both and found that McAfee SiteAdvisor is not well maintained and even rates sites with known malware as safe.

    WOT is driven by user biases and knowledge.

    I prefer Finjan SecureBrowsing from M86 Security Labs


  8. @ Comprev

    Your sigature takes 15 lines while 4 is recommended. :welcome:

    You do not list your operating system nor any other pertinent information.

    @ noknojon

    Windows Defender is not disabled by default in Vista nor Windows 7 ( at least it was not on my Windows 7 system) but I would not run it on XP.
