Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Introducing Sandboxie

Dear Forum Members

For those that have read my previous postings over the years will know that I am very seriously security minded when it come to protecting my computer, so much so that I currently have more than six protective apps on my PC.

Included in that armada of protection is one that I think is the most important of all, and that is Sandboxie (currently on version 3.60).

The reason why I like this application so much is because it actually prevents secretly downloading malware from infecting your machine by keeping it isolated, regardless of what it is or suppose to do. As far as the malware is concerned it is on your machine but it can't run or do anything, and so when you close your browser anything that has been downloaded in that session is instantly deleted.

As far as I am aware, Sandboxie will work with any and all browsers, items within the sandbox can be virus checked. Therefore, stuff you have actually downloaded can be checked before being copied/cut and pasted into an un-sandboxed area of your HD to permanently keep.

The next thing I like about Sandboxie is that you no longer have to worry about safe surfing because with Sandboxie protecting your browser you can go anywhere. Once your browsing session is finished and your browser closed all the debris that's been collected is gone as well.

Sandboxie comes in two flavours, the basic free version where you are allowed one sandbox per browsing session but you can use multiple application linked to that sandbox. In this instance the sandbox will not auto delete until the last app is closed.

The second paid flavour allows you more control over applications, i.e. whether they open with or without sandboxie, and enables you to have more than one sandbox open at a time.

I will say that my review may not give you everything you want so here is the URL where you will learn more and download this application for a trial run.


And, for those that do not know me, I am willing to answer any non-technical question about this product, my answers will be strictly based on my experience of using the free version.

Hi khono

I'm not quite sure I understand your question, i.e whether you are web hosting or want protection from web hosting.

However, I will say this, unlike other protective apps which will try to remove a problem once it is on your PC Sandboxie prevents malware, and anything else, from ever getting to your machine.

Sandboxie works by sand boxing (quarantining) an area of your hard disk, this area looks and behaves like your PC to invading "drive-by" malware, but these "drive-bys" are unable to run. When you have finished your browsing session, and closed your browser, everything that is in the sandbox is then deleted.

A word of warning, Sandboxie cannot protect you from malware, whether "drive-bys" or deliberate downloads, already on your PC or by using an unprotected (sandboxie enabled) browser.

Finally, sandboxie will work with any browser of which I have three, Opera, Firefox and Internet Explorer but I primarily use sandboxie with Firefox.

Let me know if you have any other questions.



UK Bob

UK Bob, I see that Sandboxie has version 4.02 out already. Would you suggest I stick with 3.60 for an older computer.
Also another question if I may, I've got a real old PC also (the first of the HP media centers) from about 2004. What browser would work the best for it w/out crashing? Firefox? And what version? Thanks!

Hi Sleepybear91

You have asked two questions, which I will try to answer to the best of my current knowledge.

First, you said:
Quote:

I would say that if you have a powerful PC (dual core processor) with plenty of ram then you can use Sandboxie 4.02. I, however, have a three year old PC with an Intel i3 540 dual core CPU with 4GB Ram and I use Sandboxie version 3.76.

The second question was:
Quote:

To be honest, I can't really answer that question because the browser I would recommend will depend on the O/S and ram in your PC.

So, if you have WinXP (Home or Pro) on your old PC then you will need to put in as much ram memory as the motherboard will allow (which you should be able to now get at a very cheap price).

Next, you should go along to the following website: Old Version Downloads - OldApps.com Download several old versions of your favourite browser, install and uninstall each browser version as necessary until you find the right one for your PC.

Hope this helps


UK Bob

Thanks again Bob. As for old apps, I'm going to try Firefox for the 2005 media center
what version of it would you suggest?
