  • Hopefully by 'no resistance' you mean zero/very low ohms - not to be confused with being open circuit (no conductivity). I would normally expect some resistance - a few tenths of an ohm - even when ...
  • Don't overlook the leads - test them too. Amazon (not eBay). If you click on the "2 new from £ x.xx " - just below the "Dispatched from and sold by ...." - in both cases you will be able to select ...

  • Extended support (security fixes) will end on January 14, 2020 But it will probably be 'relatively' safe for a couple of years beyond that date, so long as good Internet Security/Antivirus is still ...
  • In what way is it 'doing its stuff' - how could you know? Please read and carefully consider the following independent testing reports before paying anything... https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-c ...
  • It's actually relatively poor. Despite using Bitdefender engines/definitions (likely to be older Bitdefender engines) its 'real time protection' is actually quite mediocre/poor.... http://chart.av- ...
  • The connection method is absolutely fine. But because your multimeter's 25 mA battery test numbers are showing a lower voltage than the 100 ohm/approx' 75 mA load (which isn't showing much/any ...
  • That's a little odd/suspicious, as the 100 ohm resistor should 'draw' 70~80 mA wheras the meter battery test supposedly is drawing just 25 mA. We should expect the 100 ohm resistor to show the ...
  • Replied in What CPU (?)
    Well, that is more than enough (for XP). XP, which is almost invariably a 32 bit OS, will only use up to 3.25 GB or thereabouts, despite motherboards accepting 4 GB or more. For example, I'm using ...
  • Replied in Add more RAM (?)
    Problem is, these AV products need the resources they use for a reason. If it was that easy to provide the same protection and performance whilst also being 'light weight' then there would ...
  • Why? Seriously - what credible evidence is there that such a product is worth 'trying out'? It doesn't (as far as I have read) and even the paid for 'Professional' (ROTFL) version offers extremely ...
  • In the field of Internet security/malware protection - it's junk... http://uk.pcmag.com/superantispyware-professional-60/34992/review/superantispyware-professional-60 Quote: " Worst-yet scores in ...
  • I know existing installations continue to run, and continue to receive virus definition/engine updates (for the time being), as I am running it on several XP and Vista machines. However, when some ...
  • According to Avira's own 'change log' - as of version 15.0.22.54 (released on 05 October 2016)... (1) Avira Antivirus can no longer be installed under Windows XP and Vista.
  • My XP system is connected to the Internet every day - 1,260 days since Microsoft's 'extended support' ended. Perfect logic.  ;-) The fear is overblown - largely based on media hype, then repeated ...
  • You seem to have missed/not scrolled further down. There are three tables with a total of 12 security updates for XP SP3. Of the 12 updates, 10 are dated June 2017 . Which is great. Nobody claimed ...
  • I've used both at some time or other in the past (although it's been quite a long time since I've used AVG). Avast! should be the better choice based on most recent years independent labs testing ...
  • Replied in Avira...
    Sounds like there is a problem there - it can happen to the best of them. When you say "...now gets invoked automatically" , I presume you must be referring to a default scheduled scan - in which ...
