  1. Happy birthday and best wishes Ade.
  2. Yes, what's important are the results, and McAfee certainly doesn't provide satisfactory ones. From the perspective of righteousness, I could argue wildly about the reasons. But from the perspective of an end user, I don't care about the reasons either.
  3. You might also want to dual boot Linux or run it in VirtualBox if you're going multi-platform.
  4. It may be a sign of a failing HD, I recommend you to check the HD's SMART data. Speccy should be able to read it. If it started after installing VMWare, it might be a driver issue. Try uninstalling VMWare and doing anything you would do that would make the cursor freeze.
  5. What version of Windows are you running? Did you install any updates recently? When did the problem start? Does it also happen in safe mode?
  6. I'll try that too, thanks.
  7. I plan on getting it installed on the computers in the company where I have work experience. We had quite a bit of malware trouble lately, and I believe MBAM would take great care of the computers.
  8. Just FYI: words like "hacking", "cracking", "pirating", etc. provoke passionate anger in some of the members here, because they were caught in the act and have now apparently "ascended to the light side". Keep it up though, I can't object, as that's what I do myself.
  9. It's more than a good idea. I don't think anyone wants to be confined to a single platform, especially the one that's a PITA to develop for.
  10. You mean it physically disappears? Just kidding. Are you still able to click on things when it disappears?
  11. Sounds interesting, hope to see it soon.
  12. They have a history of being bribed or otherwise convinced to mark unsafe sites as safe. E.g. Once in the past: Today: (I clicked on the first image on Google and got the second one.) And there are more sites like AdwareAlert, Uniblue, etc. Hell, they still have StopZilla as green. Seems like your users did, McAfee. Good job. About the Avast question, I don't know, sorry. I never used their WebRep. Avast is a good antivirus though, so I doubt the ratings can be bad. As for WOT, it's definitely better than McAfee. Saying that "WOT can be biased" is like saying Wikipedia can be biased. Yes, it can, in theory, but it rarely actually is. WOT is used by everyone from the average user to malware experts, and that's exactly the good thing about it: rogue authors are not going to bribe the users to spread good lies about them. They're going to bribe McAfee, and by that, I mean companies in general.
  13. Wait, wait... Do you want your programs to be multi-platform?
  14. No squirrels around here but there are many cats on the streets, luckily they're rather fast in general.
  15. Happy birthday.
