  5. Re: a little Windows help so I can get back to Ubuntu?

    Dave--about AV preferences--MSE is light on the system and so is Avira; I found Avast and AVG quite hungry on resources and also have some false negatives cf to avira.
  6. Re: a little Windows help so I can get back to Ubuntu?

    Hi Dave, what I have tried before to overwrite the boot sector with MBR is use EasyBCD (one of the advanced menus). What this will do is restore the MBR (boot sector). What I would then so is...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is SWAP really needed?

    I thought swap was needed for hibernation mainly (hence recommendation of 1.5 to 2x size of RAM); I a not sure what recommendation if RAM is >8GB-is their max limit to swap size as RAM increases?

  22. Re: It's kinda weird that Fedora is more stable than Ubuntu
