Remember, after downloading the Linux Mint "iso" file. you will burn it to a DVD.

When making the disc, be sure to make it BOOTABLE. (Do not just copy the iso file to the DVD the same way you rip music files.) There will be a prominent option in your burner program to do this.

Thanks Daj, I'll remember that when and if I switch over. Right now I don't have any writable disks, my son took them all and didn't replace them. vic.gif

Why would Hitmanpro consider Adobe Flash Player as riskware, as a threat?

Flash player is a risk. It's being phased out and replaced with HTML5. At any rate, go here... http://www.macromedia.com/support/docume...ger02.html

Go through the flash settings manager.

Global Privacy Settings panel>Camera & Microphone>Always Deny

Global Storage Settings panel>Uncheck allow 3rd parties to store flash data on your computer. Allow store common components, slide the data slider to 10kb

Global Security Settings panel>Delete all websites that have crap stored on your computer. Change it to Always ask.

Website Storage Settings panel>Delete all websites that have crap stored on your computer. Change it to none, check never ask again.

That should take care of most security problems.

Yes, I am on wifi and it is slow and, yes, when I am gaming there is constant disconnect from the server, or so it reads.

For normal stuff, we're on WIFI, but if we're killing zombies, we plug in the cables. WIFI can't compete.

Best decision you could make in terms of security, not to mention, it will make your laptop screaming fast.
