As soon as i got my custom HP laptop, i unstalled Norton anti-virus, it is a total piece of crap that eats up my ram etc, etc... But, i do need an anti-virus program
To stop the little bubble thing to stop coming out from the taskbar at start up, i selected the option thati would monitor my own systesm secruity.. All i really have as a sure way of defense is Windows Defender. it is worling great so-far, worst thing i've gotten was a Trojan Downloader, quickley removed, and i only got it from a fake website that looked like Adobe Flash-Player Updater's site
But, i need something that is free, and wont demolish my computer speed, But can get the job done! Thanks guys. And BTW< as a new member, i have to say i really love these forums!
