AVG slaps Trojan label on Adobe Flash

Say it ain't so, AVG

Man, they're really winning the race to the bottom this year. Look out Norton!

Klunky, unstable out of the gate AVG 8loat, Link Scanner, the falsies this week... I've tried to stay true, but I am rethinking whose enterprise AV I will be running on a new network build(small<20 t's) in the coming week. I'm 100% it won't be Nort, McLaffy , maybe TrendMicro, but I'm not 100% it will be AVG now.

PH, cuz she's probably wondering where the Google Home Page is right now, too...

The Newest T'bird/Webmail Patch Works...

with the new Luke-Warm Mail.

TGFT, cuz I had hundreds of mails to download/backup(25@ a time?). I'll continue to inform my correspondents of the move away from my long-standing('98) HM account.

Hello darkness, my old friend...

Whoop-Dee-Doo

Considering ~90% of posters/repliers are scamerms, spammers or bottom-feeders(not just in the red-light district), this should really polish up that turd nicely.

Paris, she wants to meet you tonight. Check out her ad in CL personals today!

Bummer

I always thought he was a Brit, great writer nonetheless.

Well, time to unplug and reread The Terminal Man. It's been a couple decades, and yet it's so much more pertinent today.

RIP, Chictonosaurus.

Barack Obama will be president

Amazing

Never thought I'd see it in my time, an African-American President. I didn't vote for him b/c of his skin color, however, I voted for him in the hope that the neo-con, totalitarian mentality will be reversed and we can stop "fearing" all the evil-doers in the world; ie: stop starting wars, get back my right to privacy, perhaps a couple war-crime trials(riiiight), reign in the Corporate Cleansing of my wallet, clean up the international messes Butch has made. Maybe just 1 or two would be good.

Keep in mind, kids, hold onto those tinfoil hats. Butch still has 76 days to set his very own "Reichstag Fire".

Bono's Lost The Edge?

Maybe Edge is the hottie magnet, or maybe Bono needs new glasses, but those little darlings aren't worth a multi-million $ divorce. Sure they're cute, they're all cute when they're pups, but if I'm going to risk a fortune I want to be proud when I point across the courtroom and say, "She's why I'm losing XX million pounds and I regret it not."

Paris, cuz I'd divorce her in a NY minute.

I sure hope the $3 waters and $5 cokes will still available in the terminals.

Now, what about the pay-to-fast-track at the security screening? Is that for our own good, too?

Robust demand for Vista?

"Kevin Johnson, president of the platform and services division at the time, cited robust demand for <i>'upgrade' rights to XP only found in</i> premium editions of Windows Vista."

There ya go, KJ, I fixed that for ya. Don't mention it.

McAfee update classifies Vista component as a Trojan

Joke

Wait...what's the problem?

Your trusting McAfee or you're getting a thinner Vista?

Either way, if you spent big on a computer capable of running Vista AND McAfee simultaneously, then you went ahead and ran Vista and McAfee, you probably have more money than sense. I hear Geek Squad can fix it for you, give 'em a call.

Parody?

@ AC: "Good to know that you have such smart, intelligent readers who really understand the whole concept of parody........"

Parody != a free pass on any lame content, especially lame content that MAY have worked 15 years ago. You know, back when dinosaurs roamed and fagboy bands were "popular".

Missed it by ...that much.

Why Don't They...

...just pull the plug on this whole intertubes abortion? Nowhere is safe, we are all going to die and, yes indeed, the sky is falling. If US Congress had approved a web-bubble-bailout back in '99 we could have avoided this whole mess and lived happily ever after.

Paris, cuz when they said NoScript, she thought they said NoSkirt=FTW!

88% of IT admins would steal data if fired

Remove Culpability

When I left my last net, that I built from the ground up, I was disgruntled as hell. So, I insisted the owners join me in the "closet" and I instructed them on how to change all admin account passwords in the AD... following secure criterion I drilled into them from Day 1. I made it very clear that I didn't want to know the new p/w's and I stood away where I couldn't see the screen nor keyboard.

Sure I could crack it, but then who would hire me to build/admin another net? Plus, if I need them for a reference, I know I can still list them.

1 Player Away From Monopoly

Figures, only two players in the market makes it sooo much easier to collude.

Look at the memory price fixing players that busted a year+ ago, with all those manu's now that was a feat to pull off.

I love it when people say "capitalism" and the "free market" are alive and well, when in fact, globalization, mergers & takeovers create more oligopolies that dictate their market prices.

I'm looking at you Big Oil!

Vista "Upgrade" to XP

Hey Anon, you must have Vista Business, Enterprise or Ultimate to exercise the "upgrade" to XP PRO option.

PS: Don't be fooled, "Premium" is not not premium enough to be eligible. That's why all the low end 'puters have Premium stuck on them, so you can buy a second license. ;-)

"Vista Home Basic/Premium can be downgraded to XP Home"

Since when? Could you provide a link to an updated Microsoft EULA page stating this, please? While this would be great and fair, MS is not.

MS's New Motto: If It Ain't Broke...

Break it!

Paris: cuz she doesn't think of LAMP as a single unit in the way the acronym suggests: she embraces the fact it comprises four components, which work great sans MS.

I hope someday the people of the world come to grips with the reality, "free" does not necessarily = "good". You get what you pay for.

Matt, Justice for all!

Just hire a PI and a lawyer, justice is available for all who can afford it. But please, don't bother the coppers with such trivialities. If it isn't a fine-able offense OR cannot be fixed by writing a citation, they just can't be bothered with it.

Paris loves justice, the really expensive kind.
