I receive lots of e-mails from people who have found spyware on their systems. What they don't realise is that they invite most of this stuff onto their machines themselves. The biggest cause I see is downloading free software. When you see the dialog that wants to install other programs, don't click Yes.

Directory Size in Explorer View?

I can't count the number of times someone has asked for this. So here is a module you can install that shows a Folder Size column in Explorer. It needs some more work for functional reasons but is quite stable. An example of the functional issues is; sorting doesn't work, it will put 18MB folder above a 19KB folder Put it in your system directory c:\windows\system32 Then install it by typing regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\dirsize.dll in the run box Now open Explorer in details view, you wont see the column yet. Right click on a heading in the right pane and select Folder Size. When will I fix the sorting issue? I don't know? It is probably beyond my abilities, I am not really a pro coder, I just kludge stuff together. Anyone want to try fixing the sort order? OK, Someone is having a go, if they get back to me with a working fix I will post it.

Comments always welcomed

Either via email or the weblog. Thanks for reading.
