I’ve seen time and time again, client computers running too slowly with Norton or McCaffee Internet Security. Computers with these programs can take an eternity to boot, an eternity to start Word or go on the Internet, an eternity and a half to restart or shut down, an until-hell-freezes-over to do almost everything. And I’ve seen Norton Anti-virus that doesn’t ever update entirely and does this inadequate updating excruciatingly slowly and ineffectively. And these programs cost money!!!! One client’s computer took 1 minute and 56 seconds to boot and 1 minute and 10 to start Word while running Norton Internet Security. I uninstalled the Norton and voila! the computer booted in 26 seconds and Word started in just 18!!!
These programs slow down the computer as much as the spyware it is suppose to prevent. See this tutorial on how to protect your computer without Norton or McCaffee. Or if you live in Calgary let Ducktoes do it for you. Call 483-0105.
