I got good stuff this year!

Lessons-Learned Section:
1. Learning Debian OS is currently a waste of my time.
2. Corporations are evil. Corruption hurts the world.
3. I need to achieve stuff.

Material Section:
1. Japanese Buffet trip. YUM!
2. Clothes -> straight to charity

Looks like i have to get a life now. My dad installed some security software on the family computer that takes up what was left of the procesing power. The computer's bad in the first place, now I don't think i'll even be able to load up m2 anymore.

security "suites" tend to gum things up.
I use windows firewall for port control,
Norton antivirus (antivirus-only version), and
SpyBot Search&Destroy for everything else.

You could try disabling it before playing M2 and enabling it afterwards.

I got win firewall, spybot s&d, and something called McAfee Security Center for viruses. I can't find the off switch either.

Oh and I use AVG Network Edition because it is very good and really well priced (I also have a bulk license for all these damn computers (and web servers) that are laying about.

AVG AV = Yay (free edition or paid, excellent VFM, half price renewals) [great]
- AVG Firewall = pants (not very configurable)

Norton = PC slow down, too much clutter with NIS package (paid) - [well, if you like that sort of thing]

McAffee = PC stop, clutter alert, no really its pants, the interface is dodgey/for grandads (paid) - [toy]

Ad-Aware = Yay (free for personal) [5 stars]

Spybot = Yay (free) [top marks]

Clamwin AV = no resident sheild (really really really serious flaw) and sloooooooow scans (litterally takes all day to scan a PC when AVG takes minutes) but its free - [well its free]

Windows firewall = yay (clunky but effective) [free, bundled and highly configurable]

ZoneAlarm = yay but a little in yer face "buy pro - buy pro - buy pro - buy pro - buy pro - buy pro - buy pro - buy pro - buy pro" - [toy]

Blackice PC Protection = The ultimate SW firewall for serious protection unlike the "toy" firewalls above! Inbound is great, outbound has full on AP, fully configurable (paid) - [for the pros]

Router NAT with DMZ and few port or no redirects = great inbound proection, no outbound AP [common sense, direct connect at your peril]

Hardware firewall = oh yes but AP is not really an option [pros, more affordable than you may think]

Notes
- Pros = professionals
- Ratings may be totally unfair & not reflect the products capabilities
- In some cases ratings may be low due to amazingly crap interfaces.
- Who cares what I think anyway?

If that cat really was as wise as we all thought, it might turn the missle launcher on you. =P
