I tried to leave it as it was. I really did, but it got the best of me, so I just HAD to redo it. It's still not what I wanted, but it was better than before. Thanks!

I've been lurking here since forever, so I feel like I know all of you, even though I've been mainly invisible until now. So, hello!


Anyway, Zone Alarm from Zone Labs is another free program that I think is very important. (I'd be interested in hearing others' thoughts about it.) It's a firewall that allows you to control who/what gets access to your computer. When I got my new pc, I disabled Windows' firewall and installed Zone Alarm. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows ME for whatever reason, but now that ME is no longer supported, that's probably not the biggest issue for those of you still running it.


So that's my 2, and worth every penny! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Hi, Susan, and welcome! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img] I, too, use ZoneAlarm. I use the Pro version, which isn't free, but I love it, and I feel that it, too, is worth every penny. [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

Thank you, SusanC, and welcome to our forum! Zone Alarm is a very good program, from what I hear, so thank you VERY much for your input, and, again, welcome! [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

If you can't afford Web Root Windows Washer, one of the best (FREE!)programs I've found for deleting temp and unused files is CM DiskCleaner (http://www.cmdiskcleaner.com/). It'll alsoclean your computer's registry,optimizeRAM, and a few other nifty things.

On that note, I would recommend that those who don't know much about registry files avoid cleaning your registry. One mistake, and you can have some very bad consequences. So the registry cleaning should only be done by those who understand registry files pretty well.


But yes, it's always nice to clean those things up! I like CM DiskCleaner too.

Ditto! In fact, if you have no idea what the registry is or are unfamiliar with what's in it, don't EVEN go there. As kerrinne said, one wrong mistake in there, and it's not a good situation.


Thanks, kerrinne! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]Edited by: Grandma
