CCleaner – http://www.ccleaner.com/ – is a great program. I used it again on a pokey laptop and combined with a defrag of the hard disk it made a nearly unusable installation of XP run like a champ. Here is a direct link to the file – http://drop.io/edsblogs/asset/ccsetup226-zip
was a little wary of hacking my new Wii – but the software is getting better. I tried Orb and Tversity for streaming content – both are kinda rough still and my movies streamed over my wireless network from my main pc upstairs stop at about 1 hour – a limitation in the Wii with flash format. The Wii with the Homebrew channel, though, will play DVDs and avi files off a sd card. Great for those torrent movies. 😈 ]
here is a link to get started – http://hbc.hackmii.com/about/ – I used the bannerbomb hack and it worked great! Next is Linux on my Wii!!!!
Well – I have been trying out all the free antivirus programs on various computers and I have a few new recommendations:
Avira Antivir – one of the best in my experience. Works without slowing your machine and doesn’t nag about upgrades or offers.
Avast Antivirus – I have seen this one catch viruses on two of my personal computers and one client computer – but not good for older machines or if you have DSL internet – the update at startup takes a lot of system resources and can be annoying to wait for it to finish.
Lavasoft Adaware – essential for modern computing on the internet. Get it, run it and watch it find all the nasty stuff that is on your computer. It is a big download and takes a while to run, but is worth it.
And the biggie – MalwareBytes Antimalware -If your machine is acting weird this is the first thing to try – it finds all the nasties.
