The real question is did they properly repair the hidden mass damper unit that Dare can't officially admit exists?

While installing chrome or something else it never ceases to
amaze me how Norton's appears on your pc and how hard it is to
remove it.

I truly hate Norton's,wonder why Mcafee hasn't shown up" >:D

When you are installing a program, you have to read the screens very carefully. There is one that has a box you must uncheck to prevent stuff like Norton and Mc Afee from being installed at the same time. I agree, it is almost impossible to entirely get rid of Norton. Bits of it hid everywhere on the hard drive. >:D

Norton IS a virus.  I wish even Mcafee could get rid of it.  >:(

Mcafee is a virus too.In order to get them off my pc's I've had to

I have been using Kapersky (not just because they sponsor Ferrari) for years and find it to be the best by far. I have the "Pure" version at the moment and it's super.

I have a quick question for Darrell.

I told the repairman I had Window's 7 Home 64 bit and
he installed Windows Home 32 bit.Is there much difference in the 2
and if it is would it be worth my while ot try and get him to install the 64 bit?

Well, if it was me I would be back demanding he do it right. Here's a good article from Maximum PC from a couple years back on the subject.

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/should_you_upgrade_64bit_windows_7

...and here's my thoughts....

- if you had 4GB of RAM you don't anymore...you only have 3 'cause that's all that the 32bit version can address.

Kimi's back! Future double WDC.
