I have about 50 websites that I visit regularily. A lot of them require passwords to enter. I found that if I include my password with the site in my “favorites” list, it is always available when I want to pull up a site. I used to keep a list on paper, but I was always adding to the list or deleting. After a while, it became a mess. Now when I want to go to Lumber Jock, I click on favorites, select LJ and the password is there ready to be entered.

MrRon, you appear appropriately data paranoid. What antivirus do you recommend? Here’a a walnut box I made so we don’t get in trouble for going off topic.

Awesome hammer, Bubinga. Norton has destroyed too many of my computers to consider it. Most of them historically and I’m sure they’re better now, but memories run deep. I’m running Kaperske right now & it’s starting to annoy me.

I’m really not too computer savvy, but I use Norton anti-virus, recommended by someone who knows more about computers than I do. WARNING Whatever you do, never open those advertisements or e-mails that tell you “you may have been infected by a virus. click here for a free scan”. This is a scam. It places a virus on your computer then wants to sell you the program to get rid of it. You buy the program, the virus goes away and the user thinks it was the program that fixed the problem.

Another Norton fan. Oh well, perhaps I may have to give them another look. Speaking of looking, look at my figured eucalyptus jewelry box.

I’m using Mozilla Firefox Browser, it will store passwords and insert them when web site is entered.

A nice walnut box for storage is nice. I would recommend one of these antivirus programs Avira Free, AVG Free or if you are using Windows 7- MSE is pretty good.

Chrome + LastPass extension. Also, Microsoft Security Essentials for A/V. Just as good as the retail folks and waaaay less annoying.

I’ve got about 5 boxes running 24/7 between HTPCs, main rigs, and pads. I’ve got a mixture of webroot, kapersky, and avg. I’m actually most impressed with avg & I’m tempted to go 2 years. I don’t mind paying, but I’d like to get everybody updating at the same time. AVG seems the most likely to give me a 5plus box license. Having seen it appear in Lew’s list, I may consider. Thanks guys. Oh yeah, I like to use Japanese pullsaws when cutting dovetails. Index your finger on the grip; helps guide (facepalm).

Are Japanese pullsaws uni-directional ?

AVG Free 2011 and Advanced System Care on three PC’s. System Mechanic on 3 more. Glarey Utilities (free) on all to sweep behind the others on the registry clean.

Chrome all the way (with the password extension). Used to be Firefox for years but…

Funny timing about this thread. I have been downloading all of the above from Cnet on this new shop PC I put together last night.

Is there a Japanese push saw as well (to make the set… and keep you from having to go to the other side to pull again) ???

I’ve really gotten used to the Japanese pull saw for cutting dove tails. Nice thin kerf and easy control. BTW, add Malwarebytes Free to your arsenal and you’ll catch practically every piece of Malware and Spyware.
