The idea of MSFT deleting a program (albeit a piece of malware) from my machine bothers me.
When will their idea of malware differ from mine?
I had to use Real VNC at my last job and Windows Live OneCare (or whatever it's called) detected and removed it. I would think MRT would ignore questionable software, but for apps/services targeting Joe Sixpack, don't be surprised to see some things like VNC or IRC software flagged as malware.
Malwarebytes is awesome! The AV2009 malware is a tough one to remove, but Malwarebytes takes is right off.
I swear by them. In fact, I removed Symantec AV from my computer (since it only protects against exploits nobody uses anymore and slows your PC down more than any virus). I use Windows Defender to monitor system changes and do periodic sweeps w/ Malwarebytes. System is much faster now and still clean.
Do other Slashdotters have an a la carte TV solution that doesn't entail torrents, watching on the web/computer or illegal downloads?
None here, but I seem to recall hearing the FCC was mulling over the idea. This was some time ago, mind you. I don't think it ever really took off. Too bad, too. To get Noggin for the kids, we pay $60/mo for TV. Of the 150 or so channels we pay for, we only ever watch 6 of them.
Now of course, none of that advice probably applies if you watch a lot of sports. In those cases, I don't know there are really good alternatives other than frequent trips to a bar...
It's Viacom stations, so unless that sport is Jackass, TWC is probably not canceling it.
...Bethesda spent significant amounts of budget on hiring the voice actors for the game, specifically two or three more famous ones...
Dear Old Dad is voiced by Liam Neeson. I didn't recognize any of the other voices though.
