    rele dunno, don't use norton anymore, i remember i used to use it until my computer started to load up rele slowly and that annoyed me so i changed.
     
  4. i still use norton, but what i do is that i shut it off permanently, and only turn it on when i need to do some scanning.

    CleanUp!
    is a powerful and easy-to-use application that removes temporary files created while surfing the web, empties the Recycle Bin, deletes files from your temporary folders and more.

    CleanUp! frees disk space and reduces the "clutter" on your computer helping it to run more efficiently. It also can be used as a way to protect your privacy on the Internet. You can even instruct CleanUp! to securely delete files making it impossible to retrieve their contents using lower-level disk tools - just another way of protecting your privacy.

    i use ccleaner, i think thats a very useful tool for ur comp as it keeps it pretty clean from cookies and other stuff u get whilst surfing the internet. also, it cleans up ur registry too and best of all its free.

    Anyone use Threatfire? Is it just another Anti-Vir program?

    Yes. Threatfire si another anti-virus program. But unlike other antivirus progams, it doesn't rely on signatures but behavior. I wonder how it protects the pc from low process virus though.

    Just download K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and install it and you can play pretty much any video

    Threatfire is not used as a standalone virus protection, but as addition to the antivirus installed on your computer.

    the all new norton 2009 for gamers seems to work pretty good,
    however i use trend micro as it gives a really good protection on the computers:

    - if you end task (the process), unprotect the autoprotect, for Trend, it will prompt you for a password, whereas this will just let you end the Norton process, so whenever u got hacked, you are still not protected...
