    Me too. Especially my financial information (banking, credit card info, etc.)! I've already been hacked several times and once even had my bank account hijacked through PayPal which is touted to be one of the most secure on-line payment services.

    windows 9


    hello girls and boys,

    i'm new to the forum and i wonder if there is any official word from microsoft - is the next os really going to be called '8'?

    naturally i can see the logic implicit in such a move, but i still wonder...i've heard rumours (exposed recently at a very popular windows 7 forum) of windows 'smoke' - is this true?

    :smoke:

    Windows Smoke? That sounds very funny ...lol...

    I think you're talking about the smoke effect while burning under Windows Vista, what isnt present in Windows 7.

    AH, this would be NOT GOOD AT ALL. I would hate it. You think they will have an option to use a harddrive??
