Every Gamer Should Do This!

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.

Here's another handy tip I've been meaning to share...Any time text or graphics are too small or too big on your screen, hold CTRL and roll the middle mouse wheel. You can increase/decrease the size of web pages and microsoft Word documents, and many other applications.

I wouldn't trust hat microsoft crowd. I reckon this is one of those bogus anti-virus things we are always hearing about ;)

:P that's what I thought but then I thought this seems to make sense for attacking viruses that attack anti-viruss software stored on your machine and ani-spyware stuff such as adaware keeps getting broken by them. Web based ani-virus scans are prolly the way to go forward instead of installing some annoying thing on your machine.
