THE HANDY DANDY ANALOGX MAXMEM
Have you ever wondered why it is that, when your first reboot your machine,
it seems to run smoother and faster than it does after it's been running for
a while? This is due in part to programs using system resources (like memory)
and then failing to free it when they exit. The end result of problems like
this is that your system runs slower and slower. Now you can take control of
your computers memory usage with AnalogX MaxMem!
Scripts are small programs that are written in a variety of simple computer languages. They can perform useful functions but they can also be used for less useful and sometimes damaging purposes, the prime examples being computer viruses and trojan-horse programs.
The worst thing about many types of scripts is that they can operate without warning as a legitimate part or extension of another program. Most damaging of all are email attachments that contain scripts. If you open them in an email program that allows scripting they may execute before you even realize what you have done.
ScripTrap traps scripts when they attempt to run on your computer and provides the option of blocking them or letting them continue to run. You can also check the intercepted script with your anti-virus program before you decide to run it or not. This provides you with a chance of catching possibly malicious code before it causes damage. ScripTrap is particularly useful for trapping scripts that arrive in email attachments.
As always, having a good anti-virus program installed on your computer is highly recommended. Even if you do not have one installed there are several free anti-virus applications that can run from over the Web. Try http://www.antivirus.com/pc-cillin/.
