Just a question about my application (alpha stage)
« on: October 10, 2010, 04:55:18 PM »
Ok, I have worked on this for some time now, (Around 15 hours) and I want you to tell me if the layout is good or bad. The link is listed below, please give a description about why you rated the layout that out of ten. I would appreciate if you do this. Oh, and what your going to download is "Lucky Star Fan Edition". I made it using VB2008 and I hope that the final version will bring joy to some people. None of the buttons work yet, this is just the layout, OK?

Code: (Version).(Beta).(Alpha).(Minor Change)

Well without giving more info about what it is, or what it does, I doubt many people will even look at it...

And that is before I get the network shield block on the domain...no thanks...

Ok, I don't know how it got there but I guess Microsoft Security Essentials didn't detect a backdoor. Yeah, maybe this can explain my laptop sometimes locking up on me... >_<

I believe you can not run Microsoft Security Essentials with avast!

Windows Defender works fine on Windows 7 though.
E5200 2.5GHZ, 4GB RAM, 320GB HD, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, avast! V9.0 Free, IE10
P4 2.8GHZ, 1.5GB RAM, 40GB HD, XP Pro SP3 32bit, avast! V9.0 Free, Google Chrome
with hpHosts, MVPS HOSTS files, SpeedFan, WinPatrol PLUS

I don't use Avast!, It's too big, I only have 150MB of free space. :P

Ah you don't use avast, yet you have the brass neck to come here and ask for help with your program. I guess you could ask for help on the MSE forum then :P

With only 150MB of space left you are not even going to be able to do a windows defrag as I believe that requires you have 15% free space. Once you get to less than 20% free space you should be looking at either archiving off unused applications, data, media, etc. to an external drive or upgrade your HDD.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.8.2487 (build 21.8.6586.697) UI 1.0.666/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Look, the only reason I did it was to practice my coding in VB2008. :P

Anyways, as I said, all I want is a [bold]<!-- MAKE ME BOLD!!!!!!!! -->layout[/bold] review. What does layout have to do with product?

140 views and no replies, I'll just post on youtube...
