    The latter slowed my computer to a crawl -until I uninstalled it - and that wasnt easy.

    Cure worse than the disease

    Just your mentality?
    I guess that explains why you are having a conversation with yourself. :)

    I started off with McAfee, then switched to Norton, both suck big donkey dicks. Try AVG, it uses the minimal resources unlike the other 2 big hitters.
    3 years and 3 bots, works awesome!
