Program to Tell What Files Are Accessed? by Michael W Ryder
I have been trying for about two months to get one last thing working with a commercial terminal emulator under Vista Business. The program works fine for everything except when trying to transfer files more than once per session. The first transfer works fine but subsequent attempts to transfer have the necessary buttons greyed out. The program works for others under Vista and Windows 7...

Cannot load OS after setting up the bitlocker by Hexello
I've runned the preparation tool, it made the new partition, rebooted. Then bitlocked asked me for usb drive to store the keys and encrypted my drive. I've rebooted again and now I can't load my OS. Bootloader waits me to instert the "correct" usb drive and allows me only to reboot or enter recovery mode. When I reboot it still can't see my flash drive. If I enter recovery and it asks me for...

Encrypting Administrator's profile by Kirsten[_2_]
Is there any way to encrypt (EFS or similar) the entire administrator's profile folder (C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator) so as to prevent a user from login in to the computer if he changes the password with a dos utility? (CIA Commander for example). There's no point in having domain policies if the user can login as the administrator and do whetever he wants with the computer! What...

Need opinions on Network Security software by Hank Arnold
I run a network at an upstate Hospice. We are currently using Sophos End Point Security as our AV/firewall/etc. security software. I recently upgrade it to Enterprise Console 4. I'm not thrilled with their handling of the firewall management from the console. Overall, I'm happy with the program, though. We are due for renewing the support contract in November, so I want to start looking at...

Vista Antivirus Pro - malware by John
I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. Vista Antivirus Pro has appeared and is creating havoc on my system. Is anyone familiar with Vista Antivirus Pro? I removed my laptop from my network and then I ran a boot scan with Avast! It said that it removed a Trojan, but today, Vista Antivirus Pro is back. I don't know what else to do. -- John

Can A Hacker Steal My Files If I Don't Share Any Folders In Vista File Sharing? by john ha
Hi, I accidentally left my router unsecured for a couple of hours. I also left my laptop on during this time, connected wirelessly to the unsecured router. My question is, can a hacker in my apartment complex who really wants to, connect to this router and hack into my laptop's hard drive and steal/transfer files? I have not shared any folders.

Help: Not sharing folders, but can they still be hacked? by john ha[_3_]
I'm using Vista but not sharing any folders at all on my unsecured wireless network. However, could a hacker in my apartment complex still access the hard drive's files if my admin password is blank (since I never set the admin pw up), or even just another way, even though I don't share any folders?

Help: What is the administrator password? What if I've never set i by john ha[_3_]
I have heard of the "administrator password" for a super-administrator. But I have never "set" the "administrator password" or "super admin password". I do, however, have a user account with admin privileges that I set a password to. Is that the same thing? Does my creating a user account with admin privileges and password make the password for the super-admin the same, or will the vista...
