Running news clients with the built-in Windows Firewall, you will usually get fullspeed when accessing the usenet. Problems occur when you use All-in-One Internet-Firewall-and-Virus-Scan solutions. Since Virus-Scanners and Firewalls tend to scan all the network traffic with heuristic algorithms, scanning may slow down internet (and usenet) access. The following article demonstrates how to configure the widely spread Kaspersky Internet Security to allow fullspeed access to the usenet.
We assume you know how to setup your news client and you already installed Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS).
Setting up KIS
Open up your KIS and do the following:
click the Settings Button (see picture)
on the next window click the Threats and Exclusions Button (see picture)
on the next window click the Add Button (see picture)
on the next window click the Do not scan network traffic Checkbox (see picture) and then click the Browse Button to choose your News Client (see picture).
Then save your settings and restart your News Client application and you’re done.

After some days of using a pwned iPhone 2G with firmware 2.0, we found some issues. As of now, we don’t know where they come from. But we definitly know: we don’t like them.
WiFi doesn’t stay connected, it falls “asleep” and takes time to reconnect
the more apps have been used, the longer it takes to see reactions
means: if you click on contacts and have used Safari, SMS and Youtube before, opening of contacts takes a lot longer than after an fresh reboot!
loading the contacts take 5-10 seconds
scrolling through contacts is jerky and freezes the view from time to time
scrolling through photos is jerky and freezes the view from time to time
launching the camera takes up to 10 seconds
the unlock slider may not react in time and you may miss a call
keyboard reacts slower than on 1.1.4
reaction time is heavily delayed (or seems not to react at all for more than 17 seconds – see video below)
We won’t blame anyone for this, because on the one hand this could be an effect of Pwning the iPhone and on the other hand these issues might be “features” of the original unmodified firmware 2.0 aswell.See update below, this is a firmware 2.0 issue.
Anyway we feel there are heavy problems with the memory management in firmware 2.0, that need to be addressed soon. Workflow was a lot faster with firmware 1.1.4.
As of now we just reboot the iPhone once a day, but this really is no working solution for such a device. We feel this reminiscent to Windows 95 times is not necessary.
Update: it has been reported this may come from Cydia. As we’re investigating this issue, we get back to you once we found a solution.
Update: Pumpkin of the iPhone Dev Team reports this most likely is an issue of the original firmware 2.0. Native iPhone users have also experienced this behaviour (see reports here in Apple’s forums). The internet is full of reports. Do a Google search you will find plenty of people reporting these issues.
