@  Jiko : (26 March 2015 - 12:13 PM) I know how much work it is, I am formed the entire web with hundreds of wallpapers in a new place. It's hard work and takes a lot of time. you have my admiration becozy. Thank you for the work
@  Forbes girl : (26 March 2015 - 09:28 AM) becozy..I had no idea inmotion lost our entire Gallery. What a pain that is for you and Dayna to get back up. Thank goodness you had backup of the Gallery pictures. Now that I know what is going on and understand your problems I am content to wait for the gallery for as long as it takes to get back up.
@  becozy : (26 March 2015 - 08:45 AM) I am working on the GALLERY rebuild as quickly as I can. The server interruptions, down-time, and slow response to help-tickets have been a huge factor in delay. Also, RL has been kicking both Dayna and I, so please hang in there! I have the entire GALS GALLERY on my computer Hard Drive and on back up...but it is tedius and time consuming to sort through and upload. Once inmotion lost our old gallery, there is no way for me to get the album/gallery names, locations and specifics w/o sorting through massive group folders.
Currently I have input
  • 56365  Images  (That's over 56 thousand images!)
  • 1577  Galleries  
  • 264  Albums
As soon as possible, given the way the new Gallery works, we hope to have the images available as a cohesive unit for viewing.
Currently, to see new images, go to the posts on GB GALS - a gallery (if available) is shown, in thumbnail (click to enlarge) under each post.
For members of GALS, if you are looking for a specific photo or event, email or pm me and I will try to send to you!  This is frustrating not only to all of you, but to Dayna and I who are really doing our best to return the Gallery to glory. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Hi, Sarah! I can't recommend Spyware Blaster and Zone Alarm highly enough. They are simple to download, easy to use and really work beautifully! They prevent any yucky's from tapping in, firewall style! Hugs, Barb

Dont know if anyone's heard of this one but avast!Antivirus is really good. It downloads anything on your computer. It even detected a virus in a music file that I was trying to download. It's free; and it'll let you know when you have to re-download it. Once you register, or re-register, you get a new code that is good for 14 months. It's really nice. Hope it helps!

Here's my experience:

I use NOD32, the Internet Security one, not only the antivirus. The NOD32 Internet Security version has: antivirus, antispyware, personal firewall, and an antispam module (in case you use an email client for example Outlook, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc)
It's really fast and has a very good heuristic. This means, that the software will resolve a problem, such as an infection, faster than others. You can update it when you desire it, or you can set it so the software does it automatically, in my case cos' I'm a paranoid person, the update is every hour.
Now, the weakness that I find in this antivirus is the computer scan, when you want to scan your hard disk, you have to start it manually every time, there's no setting here, so if you forget to do it manually, your computer will never be scan. This is annoying for me, because with my older antivirus I could set the software scan starts at night when I don't use my pc. You all must know that during the scan stage your pc's performace will be very slow, this happend because all the RAM in your pc is being use for the antivirus software.

My older antivirus: Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS), KIS has the same modules that NOD32 Internet Security (antivirus, antispayware, firewall and antispam module). The heuristic is not so good as in NOD32, but the full scan disk is the best in my opinion, is really full scan. You can set it to do automatically every day, every week or once every month. It's up to you. Kaspersky software also has an antivirus version (KAV). KAV is ligther than KIS, but is not that complete.
I still have KIS on my computer, but NOT as resident protection, only for full scan and I turn on KIS manually when I suspect I have an infection that NOD32 can't eliminate it, otherwise the only resident antivirus I have is NOD32.

You can only have one antivirus as resident protection in your system, but can have as many antispyware, firewall software as you wish.

Also have: Lavasoft Ad-Aware Pro, Spybot Search & Destroy (antispyware), Norton Clean Sweep (registry cleaner, this one must be use it carefully, any change in you registry key could break your system and you'd lose all your data), and of course, the safest browser I find (until I switch to Linux/Ubuntu) wich is Firefox.
On Firefox I've install two "must have" addons: CookieSafe and No Script. The first one avoids that when I'm surfing the net, certain sites safes their cookies locally so they follow my tracks on the net, spying me; the other one, No Script, avoids that sites that has malicious scripts can do or change things on my system. I have greasemonkey addon on Firefox too with a few google mail scripts, this allows me to work with certain sites with special attributes, for example I can input emoticons and a html signature in my google mail account.
Sorry ladies about my english, I've just woke up (oversleep taking a nap) and haven't drank a coffee yet. Posted Image

I always advise AVG Free (free.grisoft.com) for antivirus
Spybot S&D for antispyware.

Whenever you download anything from an untrusted site, be it music, .exe, text, graphics, scan the file before use. Especially if you p2p. I stay away from .wma files when searching for music.

Advanced users use
CCleaner - whenever you edit the registry always always back up the registry first.
Hijack This - you can get this off of the TrendMicro website - very advanced

I also use WinPatrol (referred from cbvixen/mystiglenn) because it monitors your PC for changes made to it, and allows you to edit the start up tasks, etc. Though I still prefer msconfig.

I hardly ever do a virus check on my Mac since its mainly used for drawing and work stuff. Rarely do I surf the net on it. For the work PC we use a combination of Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot, and Norton. Its also wise to always do a Disk Cleanup, Defrag, and clean out your desktop Mail (should you have Outlook). On top of that always back up your information on an external hard drive just in case your main drive fries.

I had Norton at first but I did research and found it leaves a large foot print on your system and slows your pc down I find using firefox browser helps eliminate a lot of spyware or none at all with IE that was a different story
