Hey guys, I just found this site today and I've got a few general questions to see what everyone's opinion is on a few things I've been looking into lately. I don't really know where else to put this so I'm going to try it here. If it's a bad place for it I'm sure a mod will be helpful. First of all I recently discovered the wonder that is bit torrent, and all the goodies associated with torrent files. (Yay me, a little slow though) In searching I've found a program called removed it's basically a hacked down version of XP Pro that is supposed to only use 64mb RAM. My question is if any of you have used it or even heard of it, and if so, what you think. I've read lots and lots of good reviews about it at the site I found it at: Link removed-No hacks, cracks, or other possible malware posting allowed here-Ron and only a couple bad comments from people who couldn't get it working correctly. My next question is reguarding anti-virus software. I've tried several different programs and read up on alot of other forums to try and determine what the best option is. I've come down to a few, Kaspersky, Nod32, and Bit Defender seem to be the most popular that I've heard of, (KAV and NOD I learned of on here recently) and while none of these are free, I've found that even the stingiest of computer nerds (I count myself among them) haven't minded paying for these programs. So let me know what you think in that reguard. My final question is a question of firewalls. I know windows has a built in one, and it's pretty crappy. I also know tha Norton (symantec) has one out, as well as Zone Alarm being pretty popular. My question is this, what firewalls do you guys use and if you use more than one, why? What do you think are the best programs to run to keep a computer the safest. I appreciate any advice/opinions and responses, as long as they are polite and helpful. I don't like being made fun of, so if you have mean comments please keep them to yourself. Thanks again.
