Default Re: COmputer damaged?

Just a add on to say that Norton is absolute rubbish, A friend of mine was having trouble with his system so i went around to have a look and i was almost certain that he had a virus or some bad spyware, he had bought Norton so i did a scan with Norton and it found nothing, how ever i was sure there was a virus so i installed mcafee on his system and what do u know it it picked up 6 viruses (But that didnt fix the problem either i couldnt figure it out, so i just did a system restore) all i am saying is Dont BUY Norton it is Turd, and if u insist on buying a virus scanner buy Mcafee as it is a bit cheaper and most certainly better than Norton.

even though I cant tell you how much I hate SP2 but if you install that it will protect you from simply everything. Which is very annoying.

I think it also has a virus scanner. It didn't like norton but I told it to shutup. And it did.

Well I imagine Microsoft would make the best viruscan, they created the weaknesses/exploits in the first place
