I have a few general questions. Hoping someone can help answer them as it would be most appreciated.
I have Corsair Force 3 120GB Solid State Drive I just recently installed in my Sabertooth X58 board. This is the only drive in my system.
I just installed Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and I have a few questions:
1) I am planning to install Microsoft Security Essentials as my Anti-Virus Program. My main concern is will this program cause any degradation to the drive and its speed?
2) I am also planning to install ZoneAlarm Free Firewall. Again as above my concern is that will this program cause issues for degradation to the drive and its speed as I know Zonealarm does write log files out. Should I simply use the Windows 7 Firewall or is there another suggestion to use?
3) Finally I am planning to use the following two tweak guides listed below and wish to know if there are some tweaks I should not do for this drive? The Disable PageFile for Virutal Memory was kinda of concerning for me as I don't know if I should diable this even though I have 12 GB's of RAM total in my system:
Ok I did all the tweaks in the guide mentioned above and I am going to be installing Microsoft Security Essentials.
My last question is it ok to install Zonealarm Free Firewall? Again my concern is will this program cause issues for degradation to the drive and its speed as I know Zonealarm does write log files out each an event occurs.
