Still trying to fix up his computer for him, and I keep encountering two annoying problems:

Problem 1:
problem2.jpg

This thing keeps coming up every 5-10 minutes and interrupts anything you're doing. I'm not exactly sure how to stop it... his firewall i already disabled, and if you try to enable it using that pop-up,it takes you to an internet page where you have to pay to download some anti-virus program. Should I just download a free antivirus program and try to get rid of it? I was thinking NOD32..?

Problem 2:

This comes up whenever Firefox is started :\ Any suggestions?

use it and remove it!

then suggest install SPYBOT SEARCH AND DESTROY link update it and remove anything else it finds!

NOD32 tends to be jumpy and give a lot of false positives on genuine files .. so maby avoid it!

Avast home is a good freeware antivirus tool and so is AVG both have free updates for life!

you may also want to get them a free software firewall to monitor incomming and more importantly OUTGOING calls to the internet!

I use ZoneAlarm free version along with AVG 8 both free and both work great but I also use SPYBOT and ADAWARE and SPYWARE TERMINATOR 2 and check with those at least once a week with AVG set to update DAILY as new Virii are released daily

edit you may want to download the removal tools on your own system and put them on a blank cdr and install them from there ....(you could use a USB stick but would need scanning/formatting afterwards) to avoid anything jumping ship back to your machine!

cdr is more useful if your warey as its read only memory

additional scan in safemode too as some files that tools may want to remove maby in use by the system in normal boot!

I second that, never use a USB stick for this stuff! You might get a unwanted thank you gift from it!

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm downloading Avast! right now and I'm thinking of getting bit defender as well. I also got CCleaner to clean out the crap from his computer... hopefully these will stop the annoyances and make his compy run faster.

    I don't mind the price, but there is a very real chance I won't ever touch it once it gets here.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Because my brain is fucked up.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    $100 for a console is not a lot. $100 for a plastic brick to put on a shelf is a lot.

    I got a Pi5 Veho, loaded like 400GBs of games tested a few and now it sits lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Next to the Pi4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although the Pi5 features 2TBs of Nvme goodness
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I had hoped Killer Instinct Gold on the N64 would improve..... It did not, so not a speed issue, emulation issue
  • Veho @ Veho:
    On the Pi?

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I was kinda sad about that, got it all set up and fired it up. Side by side Pi4 vs Pi5 and there is literally zero difference
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although I will say Dreamcast seems to work better
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Maybe there's some single/multi core bullshit that one emulator knows how to use and the other doesn't.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Things where speed was the issue and not the emulator
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Veho probably but based on what I read even on a PC that one game is tough to emulate
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Probably microcode
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    The N64 was ahead of it's time with that BS lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    FPGA N64 emu when?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's amazing how annoying those old consoles are to emulate. Like, you can emulate Gamecube and Wii on a calculator, but like the SNES still has trouble.

    I think that one company made one?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Yeah the issue from what I understand is they used old hardware that was more finicky about timings and speeds, newer stuff was more about shaders and APIs lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And half the stuff relied on weird interference inside the chip and not actual intended functionality.

    I thought another company had one too?
