5776  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's wrong with XP's built-in firewall? on: October 04, 2006, 10:20:58 PM
Dont know if it is true but I read somewhere that Microsoft had planned to put in outbound control but usertests showed majority can not handle this feature, or dont want to bother with setting up rules for access, looking at pop-up warnings etc. They end up clicking randomly or better disable. Make sense to me even if not true.

you make a point there, dk70. even in ZA, i would just disable the pop-ups, instead of looking at each & every one of the warnings. the novelty quickly wears off after reading the 1st few of them. in any case, imo the program also should be able to analyse out-going data & detect any anomalies, instead of bombarding me with messages. but that level of AI seems a long way off.. Wink

Windows Firewall only offers inbound protection and is very good at that.
i didn't know that. thanks for the info, AdIyhc.

tks also Mizraim, for vote of confidence.. Wink

miranda is not a irc client, per se but its irc module is quite good and responsive. thumbs up

i tried looking in the advanced search but couldn't find it. so is there a way to search for posts from a particular date?
5781  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / What's wrong with XP's built-in firewall? on: October 04, 2006, 07:56:22 PM
after seeing some of the problems, 3rd party firewalls introduce after an upgrade. i was wondering what's wrong with using XP's built-in firewall? currently, it is disabled because i have ZoneAlarm. but i'm thinking of ditching ZA for plain vanilla Windows Firewall.

so, what do you think, is it worth trying out XP's firewall?
5782  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Retain keywords after losing focus on: October 04, 2006, 07:51:05 PM
This was annying me too, until I discovered the "Always maintain focus" setting Thmbsup
i tried this option too but there's always a rogue window that forces itself into your face at the most inopportune times. Angry

in other words you want the break key to behave as if you had just click on the farr window titlebar in this case right?
yes, mouser. that's exactly what i want. Thmbsup
5783  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: DimSaver being flagged by AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition on: October 04, 2006, 01:18:54 AM
this warning is also being noticed in AHK forums: Compiled scripts detected as trojans.
5784  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Retain keywords after losing focus on: October 03, 2006, 10:37:06 PM
thanks mouser. Thmbsup
5785  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Retain keywords after losing focus on: October 03, 2006, 10:25:40 PM
mouser,
i have this problem that i hope i can make you understand. i call up farr and type something. then suddenly another window pops up stealing focus. to get back to farr, i would press the Pause key. so what happens now is instead continuing the earlier search, farr shows up with the default window. how do i avoid this?

btw, i tried alt+tabbing to get back to farr but it wasn't visible.
5786  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Set maximum zoom size. on: October 03, 2006, 10:02:10 PM
mouser,
i was wondering if there can be maximum zoom size, i.e. 400%, instead of the current 1000%. this is because sometimes i inadvertently use mouse scroll on the zoom bar & it blows up the image, conjuring not a pretty sight. Wink

Do you know if it's possible to have it such that when a .txt file is selected, it is automatically shown in the 'Text editor' as opposed to having to drag and drop it there?
i'm not sure about that but there is a toolbar button for opening the selected in text editor. plus a "Ctrl+Alt+T" shortcut.

Also, the program's homepage says that dual panes are possible in A43, but I can't see how.
Click on "FM Extra". whew, that was a easy one. Wink

I installed TC but immediately deleted it as it was v. ugly.
hehehe.. there was some discussion about TC here.

sorry for the confusion, mouser. btw, can this aspect also be included into the review's deliberation?
5789  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: windows explorer alternative that lets me edit .txt files within the prog it on: October 03, 2006, 09:12:55 PM
i think all explorer alternatives worth its salt would have this option or at least provide a hotkey to shell out to an editor of our choice. anyway, you may want to try this: A43 File Management Utility.

i had the same problems with ZoneAlarm until i turned off the auto-updates & reminders after i had down-graded to a lower version.
5791  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Screensaver Maker Recommendations? on: October 03, 2006, 08:58:07 PM
i go for simpler solutions, with IrfanView. smiley
5792  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: DimSaver being flagged by AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition on: October 03, 2006, 08:51:48 PM
AVG latest update seems to have screwed up things. also a concern in this  topic. someone would have to write-in & let them know, someone who is using the premium edition that is.. Wink

until then awefawe's solution looks good. cheesy
5793  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Open File - Security Warning on: October 03, 2006, 08:41:59 PM
reko100: can you post a bigger screenshot?
can you also let us know what version of XP are you using, Pro or Home, with SP1 or SP2, etc.. makes things easier.  smiley
5794  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: v1.11.01 report on: October 03, 2006, 08:38:36 PM
..as we crawl our way slowly to v2
that's sounds like a long way to go.. Wink
5795  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: configurable screen dimmer EXE (not a screensaver) on: October 03, 2006, 08:33:19 PM
Hmm... AVG tells me that DimSaver.scr contains Trojan Horse PSW.Agent.CRB.

this is common with AVG. in fact, Skrommel's MultiMonMan is also flagged down as having Trojan horses. but as jgpaiva stated, rest assured that this is a false  alarm, probably due to AHK's internal structure..
5796  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Utility to repair clipboard chain? on: October 03, 2006, 08:29:38 PM
Oh, oh - "Windows 2k/XP."  I need Win98SE  Sad
in that case, you can get an older version of Yankee Clipper at Pricelessware.

5797  News and Reviews / Best Dialog Extender / Re: FileBox Extender 1.91.02 - Now FREE! on: October 03, 2006, 08:18:07 PM
maybe AutoDialogs should be added to the review?

aye rjbull, AutoDialogs looks promising but i think zaine ridling maintains the review.
5798  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Automatic shutdown/restart/standby/hybernate/lock program on: October 03, 2006, 08:06:19 PM
like jgpaiva, i too use the shutdown tool in WinXP. btw, shutdown -i opens a gui interface..

wreckedcarzz:
you may want to try Dimio's DShutdown. among other things you can set it to shutdown after finishing a particular task.

Quote from: website
There are monitoring options that allow you to shutdown a PC after a particular application terminates (useful at the end of compressing several files). There are also options to shutdown a PC when Internet traffic reduces below a particular data-rate (useful to shutdown a PC when it has finished a large download).

5799  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / v1.11.01 report on: October 02, 2006, 11:55:20 PM
1st of all, tks mouser for this release. so far so good. though i never had a noticeable lag before but the instantaneous appearance of farr's window in this version is amazing! Thmbsup

the "Try to keep search directories in System Cache for faster search (experimental)" also looks cool, will test-run over a period of time to see any significant improvement.

also tks for fixing the custom explorer/browser links. smiley

...maybe we should post on the results thread as each company sends out the winners (ie one post for each company, not one for each winner).
received an email containing the license yesterday thumbs up
but yet to install & try as work has been holding me back.. Angry
