They claim little box does nothing Windows doesn't already and slows your computer down 10%! (I believe them. I remember how much faster computers were before we loaded it, and my computer at home has been fine without it.)
4. "Internet Explorer (IE) won't work!"
This was my big problem for over a year. It started (coincidentally) about same time I loaded Netscape 4.7. I've heard of other people having problems with Netscape and IE on same computer, so I assumed Netscape was problem.
I tried installing Netscape and re-installing it. I tried uninstalling IE and re-installing it. Nothing worked.
Sunday night, my antivirus program (Aladdin's E- Safe Desktop) gave me an error when IE accidentally popped up. I unloaded program, and IE started to work! I don't know why I didn't think of it before. I uninstalled program and now IE works fine.
IE has ActiveX, a language that has been found capable of delivering viruses, and Microsoft is constantly using it to send update information to users. My virus protection software shut down program for my computer's own good!
5. "What about McAfee?"
Well, maybe McAfee is better. It's been working okay on my computer for about a week now. However, I've heard horror stories about them from some of my subscribers as well! In past, I've had problems with updates.
"There's always hope!"
I polled my subscribers about best antivirus solutions, and Trend Software's PC-Cillan won. You can download their software (priced competitively with Norton's AntiVirus and McAfee's Virus Shield at http://www.trend.com/
One subscriber also recommended a free solution: AVG anti-virus from http://www.grisoft.com
