Generally I never understood the point of checking outbound traffic, it'll just tell you that your computer has already been comprimised. It's especially useful when you (must?) use protocols that rely on broadcast messages. Great, you can block it but it doesnt solve the problem. Yes ... you'll al...

I don't like the idea of having something like ZoneAlarm. Under the hood there should be a *real* full-featured firewall (like the one available in Linux kernels). To me, ZoneAlarm seems to be a toy for normal Windows users that don't know much about networking.

You can install a default MBR using: FDISK /mbr A FDISK.EXE is available from the FreeDOS project. Just create a boot disk with FDISK.EXE and after booting, start the program as shown above.

Personally, I think you should change the folder icons to a different color. It's not easy to differ between drive and folder icon at the first sight. You have to look twice to differ between the two. Using a different color than gray would help - why not using yellow like Windows?

if you want to do that, you can kill the explorer.exe process and just create and run scripts from cmd.exe (you can even use cmd.exe as your shell). This is extremely dangerous ... once I tried it and it worked fine until I tried to register an ActiveX library. It trashed the whole Windows installa...

The last picture by crapphis looks great but IMHO he should start with a tree view first (no need to implement it first and almost the same functionality).

Get a DOS (or Win98) boot disk and run fdisk /mbr.

BTW: You may search for a free NovellDOS (Caldera OpenDOS) on the net. That contains a suitable FDISK too. Maybe you can also use the FDISK of FreeDOS (www.freedos.org).

Can you successfully compile a "hello world" sample?

When you cannot, think about re-installing MinGW.

Hi,

I made a (very) small test and have a feature request: When downloading a file, it'd be nice to see a progress bar for a single file. This is very useful for people with a slow internet connection.

You're right - that works. I have to say that I'm not a friend of SWF ... but it's still quite good. I like the idea of having "vector icons".
