The title notifies you that this is one of those posts that sometimes annoys some of my readers and sparked an interesting comment session not too long ago. Just thought I would warn you in case you wanted to skip this post and continue reading elsewhere.
If you happened to be on this morning you may have witnesses the background scheme changing pretty frequently. I had never been totally satisfies with my darker green background that I had put in with the upgrade to version 3.0 of Misty Look. I think I like the current background better and it should put me in a more peaceful mood throughout the day.
The second part of this post is anti-virus software related. For some reason I decided about a week ago to try out some different anti-virus software products again. I had been using the free AOL software, which is based on McAfee, and while I was satisfied with it, just needed something to do so I removed it and installed the new 2007 version of FPROT.
I had no problems with either uninstalling AOL antivirus or the install of FPROT, but after activating FPROT my PC slowed down immensely. Anytime the email programs were accessed the PC would just slog along until what ever the anti-virus software was doing completed. After a week of this I decided that the 30-day trial had ended and removed FPROT and have installed Fsecure.
My PC is running like I think it should once more. It appears that the new 2007 version of FPROT needs a little performance improvements. My needs to do something technical has been satisfied and I won’t need another fix for 30 days when I decide on some new technical task.
While I have said I would not upgrade to Vista, I am still contemplating it and in a few more months when MS has worked out more of the normal release bugs, I might consider putting it on this PC.
