comment Are there any decent spam filters for Outlook?
I use discretion when giving out my e-mail address. That tends to work better than any spam filter.

comment highest long range wifi g/n connection?
Can't point to any specific ones, but I've read articles about some super-high gain antennae listening in to connections from over a mile away. To actually talk on the network may be a different story. But it still proves a good point: When it comes to sniffing wireless traffic, it doesn't matter how low the signal is if Eve has a really good set of ears.

comment How to take advantage of two Internet connections (WiFi / Wired)?
You could use the route add command to set static routes to certain IPs or IP ranges, if you know what you would like to go where. One thing to check though, would be can Windows actually use both or is the wireless disabled when you plug in a wire? Some BIOS or driver options force the wireless card to be disabled when the machine is directly connected. Also, are these two connections actually going through two different paths to the Internet, or do they both end up at the same gateway? If the latter, then custom routing your traffic will confer no benefit.

Thanks. I prefer to give these a little time to simmer, but it seems you're the only one covering it. I thought bounties had an auto-award policy on expiration, anyway? EDIT: They do. Highest-voted answer created after the bounty was posted, with at least 2 up-votes.

Thanks! Finally someone answers this! I don't have Google Talk installed, but I do have Trillian with the Google Talk plugin.

comment How to secure my Windows 7 PC?
@RJFalconer - I'd wager the OP is more concerned about insider threats (i.e.: kids that are supposed to be grounded, nosy roommates, etc.) than burglars.

comment How to secure my Windows 7 PC?
@learner - 99.999999% of BIOSes support boot passwords. It's just a matter of knowing how to do it. For this, we would need the PC make/model and/or motherboard make/model. The BIOS is separate from the OS.

comment Start up computer in the morning
Automated logons probably won't fly, but at least the scheduled power-on will help cut down some of the pre-logon processing time (OS load, other scripts) the user normally has to wait for.
