    More nifty programs to download. This one is called Empty Temp Folders, with the click of a mouse, you can empty temp, cookie, recycle bin, temp internet folders and any folder at all you want to add. Here's a bit more of a description from the homepage <>:
    Empty Temp Folders (emptemp) helps you manage folders that contain temporary files, left over by other applications. It's easy to add any folder and you can empty a folder (or all folders) with one click.

    Also emptemp will let you list and delete cookies, history files and temporary internet files (this requires MS Internet Explorer version 5+).

    Emptemp also has a search function to let you find and delete temporary files outside the normal temp folders. Any program can leave behind temporary files or backup files anywhere on your harddisk. These files have file types like .tmp, .bak, .old and .log. You can add your own file types.

    Emptemp also displays the amount of memory the content of the clipboard takes up, and lets you delete it. And it can find broken shortcuts (.lnk files) on your harddisk, so you can delete or fix them.
    Grab it here <> if it sounds like the sort of program for you.

    ZDNet <> have a news post reporting that Microsoft are set to begin the removal or disabling of features provided by old, insufficiently tested code in Windows and their other software if there are problems which cause security issues. Here's more on what ZDNet <> have written:
    The director of security assurance for the software giant has claimed: ?A lot of the (coming) design changes are to remove this feature or turn that one off by default? and he also went on to say: ?Do we think that things will be retired more quickly? Sure?. An example of this type of action is with the change being considered to automatically disable the gopher protocol in the upcoming Windows XP SP1, which been proven as a security risk (see this <> article).

    Since the security cleanse began they haven?t managed to uncover more security holes than usual, with a total of 30 being found so far - the same number found in that time period last year. Before the advent of Windows XP Microsoft have been saying that they will sacrifice features and compatibility for security but the recent security issues have meant that there is more code which requires removal from the 50 million lines which form Windows than they expected.

    Marc Maiffret, from eEye Digital Security, speaking to ZDNet claimed ?that programmers who don't review the code before using it are at fault? and he also said ?there is no problem in having backwards compatibility, except when there is a flaw in it?.

    Now with the rapid development of features and those included in Windows XP, you have to be sceptical as to which ?old? feature (or new one for that matter) will be found to have serious vulnerabilities next. At least there is a realisation of a problem and measures are in places that could help root out the security issues that have plagued Windows users in recent times.
    You can read the whole article over at ZDNet <,,t26...65,00.html>.

    Microsoft has posted some new Windows XP updates, both through the WindowsUpdate facility and via their respective KB web pages. The updates are:
    .NET Framework ASP.NET Session State Security Hotfix: When working with Microsoft ASP.NET, a component of the Microsoft .NET Framework provides for session state management through a variety of modes. One such mode, called StateServer, stores session state information in a separate running process that can run on either the same machine as the ASP.NET-based application or on a different machine. An unchecked buffer in one of the routines handles the processing of cookies in StateServer mode, resulting in a security vulnerability. Download <>

    WinMx version 3.11 BETA 1 has been released. The new beta has the following changes:
    corrected major bug that caused crashes when # of total uploads (dead or running) + download connections + OpenNap servers + channel connections >= 1024
    major re-write of all bandwidth throttle code, old version was allowing outgoing UDP packets to violate bandwidth throttle, which then causes other problems for users with primary connections, especially ADSL users with limited outgoing bandwidth
    major re-write of channel redirect code, however it hasn't been tested under real-world conditions yet
    bandwidth graph paint code has been greatly streamlined, was taking too much CPU time
    dangerous filetype warning suppress should work now
    bandwidth throttle now has adjustable resolution (and defaults to 200ms instead of 100ms in v3.1 )
    master window second row buttons will now always show in appropriate mode, even if channels and searches are undocked
    secondary connection can be cycled without losing channel connections (click the 'Make Secondary Connection' radio button, and your current connection will be disconnected and WinMX will find a new one.)

    Have you been having problems with your Nvidia nForce PCI writes? If the answer is yes! then have the answers for you. Here's a bit on the background from Tech-Report:
    Last week, we revealed the possibility that NVIDIA's nForce chipset may have a problem with PCI writes. We weren't sure at the time what exactly was the cause, so we turned to you for results. We also checked with MSI and NVIDIA to get their input on the matter. Now we have some answers.

    Your testing results provided a clear pattern. Regardless of processor, OS, adapter, or hard drive differences, the MSI K7N420 Pro would not write data any faster than 20MB/s. Meanwhile, the Asus A7N266 series posted numbers down in the 3MB/s range. However, A7N results also proved that the newest beta BIOS resolved these PCI writes problems. Abit and Leadtek results stayed elusive until the last minute, but you guys came through with scores in the 61MB/s and 58MB/s range, showing that these boards are unaffected by the PCI writes problem. With those results in hand, it was beginning to look more and more like a BIOS issue?that the culprit was more Darth MSI than Darth NVIDIA!

    Mark Rein from Epic Games has posted a response to the leaked demo of the UT2003 demo that has been popping up on FTP servers around the net. Here's what he had to say:
    Leaked early test version of UT2003 is floating around the internet. It is not representative of the quality or performance of the final game. Infogrames' job in situations like these is to go after the people who are leaking or passing-along this version. They also need to suppress conversations about the leaked version on web forums to avoid pointing at it and tempting innocent people, who normally don't traffic in stolen software, to download it to find out what people are talking about. Their duty to their shareholders is to protect the value and marketability of their products to the fullest extent possible. They HAVE to do that, they're a public company and their shareholders would expect no less because Infogrames is invests a lot of money to bring games like UT2003 to the marketplace.

    I wanted to address a few of related comments I saw on this forum.

    The demo was supposed to come out on date 'X'. This is just wrong. I think the closest we came to guessing (and yes, it was still just a guess) was that the demo would be out around the end of E3 or a few weeks after that. So far we're still 'a few weeks after' E3 and working furiously to get the demo out as soon as possible. There are few big things we're still tinkering with such as the server browser. To put the demo out with an unfinished server browser would be foolish because we wouldn't get the all-important feedback on exactly what needs to be done for the server browser and you'd have a tough time finding decent servers that are playing the levels / maps / gametypes / rules / etc. that you want to play. We're also still continuing to optimize the performance of the engine, AI and maps and do a lot of other little things. The point of the demo (or test if you will) is to put it out when we think we've nailed just about everything (except maybe a few remaining map issues because only the maps in the demo need to be in absolute final shape) so that the feedback we get isn't about a bunch of stuff we already knew needed to changed or improved. I'm bothered by posts that say we let people down because we didn't ship the demo on some hypothetical date made up by rumor-mongers and using that as an excuse to justify piracy or slander us. That's really cruel and unjustified.
