Users already honing their IE 9 wish lists

Microsoft released the final version of Internet Explorer 8 (IE 8) to the Web exactly a week ago. But that doesn't mean users and developers are satisfied. Instead, many are champing at the bit to get Microsoft to commit to their favorite missing features for IE 9.

Review: iolo System Mechanic

There's always an arms race when it comes to the jack of all trades system tool: registry cleaner, anti-spyware, defragmenter, settings control panel. Some ZDNet readers, including myself, default to a combination of the free but popular CCleaner, Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy and an antivirus program.

The New Adventures of Christine's Old PC

Windows XP virtualized within Vista SP1 using VMWare Player. Some of you may be aware that I have another identity besides professional technologist and tech/computer industry blogger -- I'm also passionate about restaurants, cooking, and eating (albeit with a healthier focus these days) on my other blog, Off The Broiler.

A surprising switch back to Vista from Mac OS X

I must admit I was more than a bit surprised to read this post by Nik Cubrilovic of OmniDrive this morning. Seems his Mac OS partition vanished but the NTFS partition he had set up for Boot Camp on his Mac survived the gremlin attack. Nik installed Vista and describes his delight at the experience– one so positive he says that he's now planning on switching back.

The sorry state of security software

Over the years, I’ve made no secret of my distrust of the Windows security software industry. With the security tools in Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista, an alert Windows user is protected from the overwhelming majority of security threats and has to actively participate in any plot to infect his or her PC. That’s bad news for the ringleaders of the security software racket, who want to keep you afraid so you’ll buy more stuff from them. The latest examples include security software that makes your system unusable, and one that detects Apple's QuickTime as a "high-risk parasite."
