HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL
Juggler, you're cool with me. I'm here to help as much as I can. I've been on a mission during this last week, and I've been confronted with the fact that rootkits have been used on cd's since 1995. I'll discuss that in another forum. Then again, during this week, I'vee bought a Dell (used) computer, and I'm just testing out things,,, and I've have a few new clients that have bought their computers by to get serviced.... and right now, I'm done cooking the Turkey...
As far as the PeerGuardian blocking Norton or McAfee.. the best thing to do is whenever you want to update any of those programs, just click on the button on the PeerGuardian that says "Allow HTTP/Block HTTP
"..... and make sure it says Allow HTTP
... and when you're finished updating, simply click the button again to say HTTP is Blocked.
Although those programs are on their blocked list, it doesn't mean that they're bad.... but.... they got put on there for one reason or another. That's why I always leave mine on Block HTTP, and if it blocks a particular web site I want/need to be on... I just unblock it for just the time I need, then I just block it again.
Also, as advised here and elsewhere, ..... don't run 2 firewalls or virus scans at the same time. They can cause problems.
As far as games are concerned.... I like plenty of games... but I would have to investigate more on online gaming because when I did do it last year, playing Delta Force 2.... they cheated.. and I just gave up on online gaming. If you know of any honest places to play games, I wouldn't mind lending a hand in the gameplay... But, I'll say it again,,, I know how to test if cheating is going on, and if I find that it is.... I'm Outta there.
