OK all you windows users out there. Yes I know there are some Mac users, you guys stop heckling me and go play with your ipods! Anyways, windows users, listen up!
Did you know windows 'rots' over time? You have to maintain your PC to speed it up. Plz do the following to help it run faster:
go to here: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/tuneup.htm
this will do a disk defragmentation
and run it then go to here: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/cleanup.htm
this will do a disk cleanup and a registry realignment (just like your car needs its alignment fixed, your computer does too)
Then go here and run this: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/howsafe.htm
which will take a while. It will scan for viruses and spyware AND it will scan for open ports(something most anti viruses don't bother to do) And it will do its best to quarantine or get rid of them.
I did this and found viruses that McAfee didn't find that had been there for months. I highly recommend it. My computer at work has greatly sped up too. AND it doesn't install anything on your machine that runs and slows it down. In this regard its better than any antivirus on the market.
