I spent the last hour throwing a computer together. I was on here and wife got home, had to get on facebook, computer got honey in it, so to speak, and wouldn't start back up when kicked in the, uh, rebooted. Virus or HD. Well, looks like it works. Gonna have to buy another Windows disc one of these days.

Glad to hear you got one up and going, my other lap top is sitting in the corner waiting for me to take it back apart for the third time to work on the power adapter jack. I kind of stole the wifes for the time being.

so how did you get honey in it????

Hate it when that happens! What anti-virus do you use? Please don't say norton are mcafee :-(
I hate Norton, forced to use that at work, talk about slowing a computer down. I don't have anything at present, probably put AVG on this one.

I was using nortons but like you said is slowed it down something fierce, dropped that.
went to the avg and did not care for it either, too many updates that slowed everything down when making them.
using the avast now, and will do updates on the fly with out slowing things down, I like it. When searching for something it will even look at the website and if it detects a virus or trojen horse it will not open it automatically.

Can't remember who told me about it ;)

He might be, but don't think he can work on tractor hydraulics worth a darn :twisted:

Just kidding around, did you ever get that working or not??

No, I don't watch tv, listen to radio, or have the sound on the computer turned on. My cell phone can be heard by the whole family, it is turned up so loud.

Iddee don't thump on hives to hear how strong they are either.
First time ever, I had 2 computers crash this week. First one the other night was the hard drive, not a virus. Last night was a power supply. Took the two and made one. This one is a real Frankenstein, but works. Didn't want to buy another OS so I had to keep the hard drive, MB, and processor together. I'm running out of parts.

Can I download Avast to my desktop at work, copy it to a CD, and install it here on my home computer(s)? I have dialup and at 35MB thats an allnight session. I haqve had problems in the past with some programs not letting me do that. I see it has spyware incorporated in it, does it work as well as spybot or adaware?
Thanks

Personally, I think it works better than Spybot. Everyone raved about it, but when I loaded it here, my computer went haywire and locked itself up. It took me days to restore it. I have had no such issues with Avast. Not sure about copying to CD... have not tried it.

If you download it to drive c and copy to the disc drive, you may not get all components to copy. I would download it directly to the drive your disc is in. That way you not only get it all, but you don't leave it on your work computer.
