[access-uk] Re: Internet Security and Routers

Hi Andy,

I would remove AVG on the system if you have Norton enabled already.

Hi Carol.

One thing for sure Carol, any future computer thatI may purchase will
not
have Norton near it.  You are right, it's just not worth the bother
trying
to get rid of it.  At the moment, I have it enabled on my computer along
with AVG and Pauline's computer has AVG.  The Router has some kind of
anti-virus, and for the moment - fingers crossed, it seems to be working
fine.  I know now how to disable Norton from starting on boot-up, so if
I
get any problems with it, I'll simply turn it off.  However, if I do
that,
I'll need to have some other form of internet security.  Quite  a lot of
mail is now suggesting that when purchasing a computer, it's best to
avoid
those like mine, which is a pc world package, and to purchase a blank
computer with  nothing on it, and to buy a cd version of xp home or pro.
I
think that that is exactly what I'll do when I get my new computer later
this year.  Andrew and George have both provided details of computer
providers who will build a computer for you from scratch and I am
currently
checking these out.  It was so easyin the old days after reformatting,
to
insert Windows 95 then all your drivers for printer, scanner etc.  At
least
then, you knew what was on your computer.

Best wishes.

Andy
