I'm puppy sitting at a friends. So I'm using/fixing his computer while I'm there.
I'm somewhat knowledgeable about security in XP. So that means I (& just about everybody on these type forums) know more than 99%+ of people using XP.
So out with it already. OK.
I will recommend McAfee Security Center for anyone running 100% legit software who's willing to pay for it. And set it & forget it.
A popup came up with a free upgrade to McAfee Security Center 2006. The thing is it was a couple button clicks & it downloaded MSS2006, uninstalled MSS2005 & installed MSS2006. Then theres the 1 click Maintain Computer button.
This thing was too easy.
I won't use it of course.
But when I run into n00bs who are willing to pay & not learn this is what I'll recommend.
Those that know me will be shocked. I always used to spell McAfee, Mc**f**. Out of disdain. I'm still in shock.
