Computers should help your daily life.
More often than not, they seem to do the opposite... Why do they suddenly decide to "freeze" when you have written a particularly good email or blog-thread? Why do some updates prevent you from reading your emails as normal or open attachments? I know, I know, I know, it´s supposed to be for security reasons and to protect us from VIRUSES, TROJANS, etc etc.
The last few days my old anti-virus program (Norton) has been playing up my home computer. It kept telling me to compress old files and that there were not enough disk space, etc. VERY annoying since I ended up deleting 3-4 programs, clearing zillions of MB...and it still wouldn´t work.
Well, thank God for Google. I´ve now deleted my old virus program (which in itself needed almost 200MB space!) and installed a FREE (yes! We like!) anti-virus/spyware program for PC-owners, called Avast.
It has had phenomenal feedback on different forums, blogs and magazine sites around cyberspace, so I dare say it comes highly recommended.
Phew! Not only do I have to keep myself in good health this week, it seems that my computer was the one with the potential serious problem...
