comment Steps to use Carbonite on Windows 7
I use DropBox and Carbonite, and will probably move to DropBox when my Carbonite subscription expires, but it's certainly not a clear-cut "upgrade". They're really two different targets, but with some overlap. If you don't need synchronization or web access, Carbonite is a much better solution. If you like synchronization (or web access) and don't mind the space limit, DropBox is obviously better..

comment Steps to use Carbonite on Windows 7
It's the Explorer integration that's broken, so I don't think compatibility mode fixes the issue for choosing files to restore.

comment MonitorApp doesn't show CPU load in Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
True enough, I guess I didn't try it in the 64bit RC so I can't necessarily expect it to work in the 64bit RTM, but if it worked in Vista64 I'd expect it to work in Win7-64, at least in compatibility mode or something. Too bad it's not open-source.

comment Troubleshooting failed upgrade to Windows 7?
Instead of "c:\$WINDOWS.~BT\sources\setuperr.log" did you mean "c:\$WINDOWS.~BT\sources\Rollback\setuperr.log"? I don't see a log in just sources\. (Troubleshooting my own failed upgrade...)

comment Is free security software as good as paid security software?
You make some interesting points, but your two steps for people serious about computer security are "get Chrome" and "don't click"? I'd advocate getting a NAT firewall, using proper passwords, not reusing passwords, etc for people "serious" about computer security.
