  1. I take on board what you say but look at the below links and quotes and make your own mind up, I am only trying to make users aware and help fellow Gamers just like you are. cheers Freakshow. But I am pointing out a fault in the code of Windows defender itself, this applies to Windows 8 and 10 although I appreciate old OS/'s like XP are not supported by Microsoft now. The vulnerability was in the Windows defender code itself which is the A/V that has been recommended as long as as it has now been updated by the user it should be ok to use. http://www.pcworld.com/article/3195434/security/microsoft-fixes-remote-hacking-flaw-in-windows-malware-protection-engine.html ''Microsoft has released an update for the malware scanning engine bundled with most of its Windows security products in order to fix a highly critical vulnerability that could allow attackers to hack computers http://techreport.com/news/31875/microsoft-patches-critical-security-bug-in-windows-defender '' Microsoft patches critical security bug in Windows Defender by Zak Killian — 4:30 PM on May 9, 2017 If you're running Windows Defender (quite a strong possibility if you're running Windows), make sure you've got all your updates. Microsoft issued a patch this past Monday for a vulnerability in its malware protection engine that could allow a remote attacker to gain control over any affected system simply by sending the victim a specially-crafted e-mail or instant message. The exploit can be activated when Windows Defender simply scans a piece of data, and doesn't require any action behalf of a local user to take effect. The vulnerability itself lies in NScript, a Defender component. NScript thoroughly checks in-flight data (whether on disk or network) that appears to contain JavaScript. The component runs completely un-sandboxed despite checking untrusted code. Given that Defender is one of Windows' most privileged processes, the vulnerability gives an attacker complete control over the system. To make matters worse, since it doesn't require user input, the flaw could be exploited programmatically. That means that someone could craft a self-replicating worm that uses the exploit to spread from system to system.''
  2. The free Microsoft package is adequate, however after last weeks cyber attack which was using a loophole in the Windows O/S I would rather have a third party A/V Ensure your Windows firewall is on and that you have the hardware firewall on your router turned on, Some of you may only use your gaming computer for gaming and nothing else, if that is the case then Defender will suffice, if you check e-mails and use your gaming computer for anything else you may want to look at other products. The problem us Gamers have is that some A/V progs take over the computer and slow it up the only two I know which do not are Eset Nod32 and Windows Defender. I just prefer to waste my money on a third party product. No Antivirus is 100 % mainly it is down to how you use your computer. Most Gamers are near expert in computer management that includes most of us using these forums, but we can all get caught out and the better the safety net the best result will occur. To sum up Belts and braces, belts and braces lads.
  3. ESET Nod32, like most things it costs money but as they say '' you get what you pay for'' '' no such thing as a free lunch'' Nod32 also has Gamer settings and its set up is rather good.
  4. Steady Lads, hold the line, hold the line.
  5. I recognise the tags have played a few games with your clan in the past, look forward to some more games.
  6. Nothing to do with religion everyone assumed it was hence me being the padre for Mad as badgers. My name comes from my liking for two stroke motorcycles which I have raced in the 1970's.
  7. Clop !
  8. Cracking post old bean. Now also bear in mind the server locations for the Alpha, if you are up against moi and I have a colt 45 and you have a sub machine gun, don't whinge if I kill you (chance is nil with my eyesight) the fact is you may be in Texas and I am 40 miles from the Devs Alpha server in Derby U.K. Tuna one of the God,s who has already spoken on these hallowed forums with stateth". That the Alpha server locations will be released forthwith, " In a nut shell as always bend your weapon shots to compensate for latency and high low pings. NB. My pings will be high teens yours will be 100 +
  9. Thank you Tuna much appreciated
  10. Thanks Soldat but we need a specific reply from a Developer . The Alpha date is now set for the 26th of May the server locations must be known. Non dedicated servers and p2p gaming is one of the reasons the CoD series has let PC gamers down in recent years.
  11. Where are the servers for the closed Alpha Tuna ? This will have a bearing on the fluidity of the gameplay, regarding latency and ping. This is an important factor in any Alpha test. Modern day inter continental gaming as good as it is ( I go back to dial up modem playing clan games across the pond, USA to the UK) there will be latency issues to take into account.
  12. Clop ! Played medal of honour , Cod 1,2 UO Cod 4 Black Ops with MaB. All in online clan wars. Played CFS 1 on line in clan wars on dial up. Combat flight simulator when ping meant jumping from one end of the map to another.
