    Programs

    I was bored the other day so I was checking out the stuff that came with my
    computer and there where a few stuff that I don't know what they are first
    are ICQ and MAV, and I was wondering if anybody can tell me what they are
    also there was Window's Mail, I know what is is, but I was just wondering if
    its a free program or if you have to pay for it? I was also wondering if ICQ
    and MAV are programs and if they are, are they free? I have Window's Vista
    Home Basic I don't know if that would be any help. Thanks in advance.

    ICQ is an instant message product, probably the first to be widely used.
    I use it all the time. It's free. http://icq.com/

    Don't know what MAV is.... NAV might be Norton Anti Virus..

    Windows Mail is the replacement for Outlook Express email client, and it's
    free.

    ICQ is a free chat client, one that's been around for quite a while!

    Windows Mail is the replacement for Outlook Express, and it is free as well.

    As for MAV... I'm not sure. A quick Google search found nothing either...

    Re: Programs

    If it is NAV (Norton Anti Virus), there have been multiple reports of it causing
    very serious problems with WM (Windows Mail) that require a complete
    uninstallation of NAV.

    Re: Programs

    Since ICQ was added by the manufacturer and doesn't usually come
    preinstalled on a new computer, I'm guessing maybe this 'MAV' is also
    something included by the builder, so, you might ask them about it.
