    Anti Virus software for network

    Hey dudes Anybody out there have a recommendation for anti virus software? I've convinced my boss we need to ditch our archaic Symantec - I'm currently testing the new AVG 8 - but I am so far very unimpressed with its massive scan times and the fact that it takes FOREVER for my laptop to boot...

    Internet access restriction

    Hey all need some advice - I have a computer at work that I want to limit internet access to only a few specific sites, and nothing else (think slacker employee that likes to play online games and surf all day). What are my options, on a budget of nothing? I'm running Win Server 2k3, if...

    need some ideas

    Have an old Dell GX1 server at work that I turned on for fun the other day. Booted up to FreeBSD - yay, I know nothing about any of the Linux/Unix OS's. I need some ideas what I can do for fun with the old girl - sort of a project. Any takers?

    Domain user, local admin rights

    This is a fairly common question - however, my question is, if I make a domain user a member of the local machine's "Administrators" group, do I open up any holes that the user can exploit as far as messing with other computers or servers on the network?

    Anybody familiar with Microsoft Exchange? Having difficulty getting mail into user's mailboxes - throwing a NDR of 5.0.0. I'm running Server 2003 (not SBS) and am trying a POP3 connector to fetch mail from the ISP. It transfers to Exchange OK, but it won't go to the user's mailboxes. No idea if...

    Stupid XP/SATA/137GB problem

    So I finally build my first PC :blink: and I opt for a Western Digital 250G SATA hard drive. First time around - it only shows 131 GB when I go to format it! WTF?

    Ep Release Sizes

    Since it's coming back up again and no one has started the thread yet, here it is. The issue is this: how big should the released eps be? -350MB is what we use, and IMO, is quite acceptable.

    I'm curious as to what the outcome of this will be. This was discussed briefly in another thread, but the question I'm asking is "Are signatures necessary?" I used to be a staunch defender of sigs, but I now prefer avatars as a personal statement. I find sigs are often too large, and some...
