    Don't download a program called Ascentive PC Speed Scan Pro. It's a program for fixing your PC errors.
    Don't do it because it won't let you get rid of the program.
    When you go back to the site they want to download another program called PC Doctor to remove the first program. Then PC Doctor said it could'nt download everything completely.
    I got out of that and then found out it would'nt let me on the the internet.
    It took me from 4:00a.m. tilL now - 11:40 am to get it all fixed.
    It's a frigen nIghtmare. So don't use this program at all and be sure to check other sites like these that say they will fix your computer. THEY DON'T!!!!!

    I don't have MacAfee. I have Kaspersky. It wasn't about a virus it's about not letting you get rid of the program period!!
    AND IT IS NOT FUNNY!

    Yeah it is funny and I was talking about trying to remove McAfee so I could install another antivirius on a PC I have.

    The entire computer software thing is funny.

    I learned the hard way and now I play it safe and never download anything.

    Nor do I open any emails unless I personally know who they're from. And even then, if they have any attachments, they go right to the Deleted Items folder.

    Are you talking about Leo Laporte?
    The journalist?
    He still does The Tech Guy Labs on the radio and does blogs & twitter.
