    Ubisoft Uplay Rootkit

    I don't know much about IE, but in Firefox I checked tools/Add-ons/Plugins, and sure enough there are two, UPlay PC and UPlay PC Hub Plugin . Uninstalling the game (in my case Silent Hunter5) won't remove the plugins.

    What should my next upgrade be?

    Well Initially it had me in a quandary until I pulled out the engineers square and checked the bases of my heatsinks. The Cooler Master was okay, but the OEM heatsink was warped. I then tried the 212evo with a different cpu (a 95W Athlon II x3), and it preformed just fine at normal settings for...
