Brilliant

Couple of things though:
1) Where can I get those programs
2) Do I have to pay for them
3) Voted 5
4) Fantastic work!
5) Is this a couple of things?
6) I see you have a stupid computer at risk thing as well, know how to get rid of it?

Here's a couple of responses:
1) look at the creator's notes for the URLs to the utilities I mentioned.
2) No, they are completely freeware.
3) Thanks
4) Thanks, again!
5) No, not really, but that's okay.
6) I have avast! Antivirus, and I just disabled it's automatic VPS updates and forgot to re-enable them. If you are getting the System at Rick warnings because you don't have an antivirus, go to avast.com and get the free home edition. It requires a register, but registration is free. If you have Norton or McAfee or something oyu may need to update your subscription, or go with avast! like I did.
Good luck Alfie! thanks again for the review!

Bad.

Just a multimedia copy of a WikiHow article. Why bother using Process Explorer instead of the Windows Task Manager. Left out heaps of important details and forgot to mention that this will screw up pretty much anyone who ventures 1 line further than specified. Bad video quality. Yeuch.


jpoke89 responds:

Uh, I'm sorry? It's a flash video that had to be terribly compressed. I happen to use Process Explorer, because I like it, and you DON'T need to use it, I even said that in the video. What important details? I did it right there, so I obviously did it correctly. Also if you adhere to my instructions, it won't screw up anything. Did I answer all of your terribly misguided questions?
