Last news : 1 - These EU rules are a follow up of domestic French and German rules on privacy, which are already strict. The EU now wants to create a European standard, applicable in all nations. That has advantages in Easten and Southern Europe where nowadays rules aren't available or hardly contro...

Re: Official download site of VLC Media Player infected

Weird ! I don't understand this, also when you consider Shazza's post. Added : Checked the scorecard of videolan.org and it appears that more members have reported malware.

RE: What alternatives to Google can you suggest?

<quote user="A440"> Sure, that's fine, however I question why the site should get down voted if people don't believe it to be as effective as Google. I don't think that is the intent of a WOT rating.
