    Few weeks back, I have found a reference to Norton Noscript on these forums so I have downloaded it. Before I am going to use it, I want to ask if I use it, what type of functionalities I am going to loose on my system? Is it a good idea to use it while I already use noscript with FF and have disabled java script in Opera as well? I wonder how many people here are using it already as I never heard of it before?

    is this the page? it seems to only disable Windows Scripting Host (WSH). other utilities, like xp-antispy, can also do this.

    i dont think many people would be affected if WSH is disabled.

    Thanks WSFuser,

    Probably this one or some other from symantec website. I don,t remember exactly now.
    About XP Antispy, I want to ask, how useful it is. I have downloaded it in the past but never used it. Will try it now. Does it has any bugs and also do u use it or not?

    Thanks.

    xp-antispy is very neat. u can disable certain features of windows, internet explorer and windows media player. u can also change the default time update server as well as patch the tcpip.sys file.

    ive used xp-antispy in the past, but now i use xpy since it has more tweaks (it lacks the tcpip.sys patcher tho). also, ive never noticed any "bugs" with xp-antispy.

    well xp-antispy is, IMO, simpler. id suggest u go with that.

    as for patching tcpip.sys, it has to do with WinXP Service Pack 2 and Event ID 4226. it mostly just of interest to p2p users.
