One of the things I don’t like about Windows on my laptop is that, every so often, the firewall pops up a message saying something like “somePCunheardofthing.exe is attempting to control somethingelseunheardof — should I let it?”
How am I supposed to know??
I look it up on the internet, but the popup disappears in seconds, and it’s as if it’s never been. This last one apparently had something to do with Toshiba’s SMART update… but if I’m never actually there at the time it tries to run it, that message will go unanswered for a long time.
I never seem to get those little blips with my Mac. A Mac life is a quiet life in general, whereas life on the laptop (with Vista) is frequently punctuated by “!! ??”
