That's a LOTTA W/Us under the bridge........
2) Message boards : Number crunching : your opinion-best spyware & antivirus. (Message 897629)

I use the free version of Avira Anti-virus. It's rated as one of the best of the free ones. It has a nag screen that pops up everyday trying to get you to buy the premium version. Just Google on how to turn it off.

For spyware, I have been using 2 programs.......both free........

Malwarebytes and Spybot have done a really good job on removing the bad stuff.

I am serious considering taking my rigs elsewhere until this CUDA fiasco has been resolved.
I am not happy finding 0 credits for a W/U that took 1,000 secs.
I am REALLY not happy finding 0 credits for a W/U that took 10,000 secs.
GET IT FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't stand to lurk on this thread any more.........
My $.02 from an Average Joe cruncher.
I have been running Seti on my computers for 9 years.
Since it looks like we won't hear from E.T. in my lifetime,
I need something to show me what value I am getting from this project
& also what value I have to the project.
RAC & total credit are the only way I have of seeing what I have accomplished.

My RAC is about 15,000.00
Change to..........1,500.00 or 150.00 or 15.00
You can tell me all day long that 15.00 is the same as 15,000.00
All it tells me is that my contribution doesn't mean as much anymore.

And please, don't try & blow smoke & use that worn out excuse that
credit really doesn't mean anything......that it's all about the science.
If that were true, why do you suppose we have such competition among the
participants of this project.
Bragging rights must have some meaning to the people who have spent literally thousands of dollars to build a crunching farm.
It certainly gives everyone lots to talk about.
I personally have learned much about overclocking & the use of an optimized application & many other computer related stuff from reading the the postings of all the many experts on this board.
Haven't heard much about the science lately.

I'm done now..........ducking for cover

I'm running a Q9300 just a tad O/C'd vat 2.8 Gzh.
I'm using the optimized SSE4.1 application.
I just got beaten by about 200 seconds by a wingman
running a Q9300 at stock speed and using the SSSE3 app.
Thinking about trying the SSSE3 app myself
I'm wondering what all you experts think?
I've been crunching since '99, but still think of myself
as a newbie when it comes to computers as compared to
what I read on this board.
