    Maybe, but all the same we are dealing with a vulnerability limited to specific manufacturers, and flaws in their Secure Boot implementation. Of course, that's going to involve large numbers of...

    Thanks for the link to dcjt's other thread. I missed it. I'm not here very often these days, and I tend to ignore your posts, so thanks for the heads up.

    Typically, the scans need to be set up to be delivered to a shared folder with read/write privileges. Normally, that's in the format \\computer name\folder name

    Just imagine. An improper implementation of a standard having a vulnerability. Yet another good reason to patronize a local system builder.

    Actually, the problem with slow connection speed on a dialup connection has less to do with how many switches, etc. you have to go through than the fact that dialup is limited to 56kbps tops. And...

    One of the Logitech's I own has a little compartment on the underside that opens like a battery compartment and has space for the weights. Mine uses short, cylindrical slugs, but it's the same...

    I'll go with a driver issue, since Konica doesn't actually list a Win7 driver for the device. I've had instances with some newer HP LaserJets, where I obtained a driver through Windows Update,...

    Zonie and I did a classic cross post there. But since we both agreed, it wasn't too embarrassing. Anyway, I've done some of my most imaginative and creative posts at 3 A.M. No worries.

    Of course, ionamartin123 has asked a similar question over in this thread, so I think I've already said enough about reputation based blocking.

    I think you need ADI's SoundMAX drivers for that system, but since this is off the cuff, I could be wrong. Regardless of brand, most of these sources should work. Goes without saying that you should...

    Hello, ionamartin123, you really need to take some of the stuff you read about IE 10 and Win8 with a shaker full of salt. As in any tests that use IE's reputation system. Reputation systems are easy...

    I doubt that it is reliable, so I'd try booting from the Linux distro of your choice and see what happens.
