    Re: What Softwares you have in your PC/Laptop?

    Lets see...the operating system is Vista. Too lazy, poor, and no quick way to move storage around to switch to Windows 7.

    As for other programs, I use:

    Firefox
    Trillian Astra
    Winamp
    VLC
    Quick Media Converter
    MP3 Gain (Very nifty tool; analyzes an mp3's volume and you can tweak it. Favorite song softer than your other ones? Download this software and you can balance it out. Very handy)
    Skype
    Quicken 2009
    Photoshop/Imageready 7. I'm going to upgrade by the end of the year to CS4 and all those fun programs. Yay school discounts!
    Office 2007
    Pangya!

    Yeah, there's more, but I don't really use them.

    Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

    Also, there was this event thing where if you'd host a "party for Windows 7", they'd send you a free signature version.

    Believe me, MS has given people plenty of opportunities for free stuff lol
    Wow, thats awesome! Need to check what MS is doing in the UK lol!

    Question, how can i get a free Windows 7 from you?

    Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 is awesome protection solution. Low on resources and the security it provides is excellent.

    Are you asking me if I can give you a free Windows 7? lol

    And yes, Kapersky is a good if you can afford it actually. unlike most AVs, it uses behavioral detection protocols rather than the standard signature based protocols that most AVs use(including paid ones like Norton and such).

    You can buy the one with 3 licenses and share the cost with 2 other friends or someone else. It costs so economical that way.

    Well, I have one already, need another one for my other laptop.

    I am using Kaspersky Internet Security suite, I guess it has its own built-in firewall.

    Re: What Softwares you have in your PC/Laptop?

    I'm honestly not too keen on paid AV softwares(or paid security softwares in general). I mean, threats aren't so bad that you need anything more than what free softwares can give you and honestly, the best protection is awareness. Rare are the autonomous viruses(or malwares) these days and you as a user usually have to do something in order to initiate a viral infection so you as a user carry a [large] part of the responsibility.

    Btw, Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 has been rated a good AV apparently.

    Btw Jinbei, AVG is primarily an anti-virus(but it has built in firewall properties).

    Re: What Softwares you have in your PC/Laptop?

    Avira is my anti-virus and Windows Firewall is my well... firewall. xD My other softwares are

    - Microsoft Office (the entire shebang)
    - Windows Live Messenger
    - Y!IM
    - Photoshop CS3
    - Mozilla Firefox
    - VLC Media Player
    - Font Xplorer (really useful if I'm GFXing, lol)
    - Pen Tablet
    - WinRAR
    - CCleaner
    - Google Earth
    - Sims 2 (expansion packs up to Apartment Life)
    - Spybot
    - Nero
    - Malware Bytes
    - Tomb Raider Anniversary

    As you can prolly see, I am quite paranoid, seeing that I have three virus/malware/spyware protection programs. xD

    Re: What Softwares you have in your PC/Laptop?

    You're not paranoid lol You basically have one AV, one firewall, one anti-spyware and one anti-malware; pretty basic stuff. If you had more than one, we'd talk lol >.> This is paranoid: using 3 proxy servers around the world when accessing any network other than your home network for internet uses(basically, if they tried to trace you, they'd end up in Asia and Africa before finding you).

    Although I don't use Spybot anymore, it tends to scan every internet page I open so it slows down loading and smoothness of browsing.

    Hey, 'clone how are you finding Nero? and what version do you have? I think it's the best software for burning CD's/DVD's imo. It can do a lot of other stuff lol but I mainly use it for backing up my computer files and burning some music CD's.

    I have been using Ashampoo Burning Studio. I found it very reliable, easy and uses few PC sources. With Nero I had plenty of DVD faulting while the burning process. No problem with Ashampoo Burning Studio.
